Increasing rapidly, Is reducing food
production nnd Is making n problem

His solution, which will bo present
mI to the eon-eon soon, Is the estab

tho state will provide money nt n low
nito of Interest nnd on long time, ho
believes the young men of the rurnl
districts will buy fnrms of their own
and help produce food Instead of
Hocking to the cities. Thus he would
moot the tenantry nnd help questions.
Mr. Dunlnp Is chulrmnu of the agri
cultural committee of tho con-con and

helped draft u proposnl by which tho
legislature would be given authority
to establish nnd maintain funds to be
lonned to purchasers of farms. Tho
loan would be secured by tho lnnd pur
chased nnd would be pnld off In In
stallments covering n long period of
years. Loans would bo nvnllnblo only
to persons who would cultivate tho
tracts they bought under this nrrnnge
ment. "Tenantry on the Illinois farms has
Increased 50 per cent In tho Inst ten
yenrs," Mr. Dunlnp declared. "In 18S0
only ill per rent of tho fnrms of the
stnto were In the bauds of tenants. In

nnd In 1020, nccordlng to estimates
compiled by the legislative reference

"According to surveys inndo by

farms In several counties.
