It is noticeable that when a politi
cian begins to talk about reducing
the cost of living he looks ri.ght at
the American farmer. Yet tne farmer
is only getting 46 cents for every dol

for farm products. Let the farmer
alone and turn the spot light on the
railroads and the commission dealers.
Fate of Fanning May Depend on the
(Editorial from the San Francisco
After making a thorough investi
gation and testing their relative
merits, Uncle Sam has come to the
conclusion that his girls are better
farmers than his boys.
A few years ago the Department
of Agriculture organized boys' clubs
and girls' clubs in various agricul
tural communities and inspired them
to friendly rivalry in the raising of
crops. Now reports of achievements
are being made and the wiseacres
who predicted an easy victory for the
boys have not yet recovered suffici
ently from their disappointment to
In Oklahoma, a State of great op
portunities for producers of food, the
girls raised and canned ninety vari
eties of fruit. The boys were no
where in the race. To quote the
dispatch from Washington, "the girls
beat the boys hollow." In other
States the contest was closer, but the
general summing up found the noble
male no longer lord of the soil.
Here is a fine chance for American
women to help lower the cost of liv
ing. She can not only devote her
talents to making the land more pro
ductive, but she can do much to in
duce the surplus of men of the cities
to go to farming or fruit-raising.
The effect of such a change would be
to increase the number of self-sup
porting Americans and to lessen the
burden of countless toilers.
To become a farmer the American
woman does not have to sow and
plow and harrow like many of her
European sisters. She can do her
share of the work by planning it out
and then gently bossing the hus
band, brother or hired man intrusted
with the hard labor. In time she
may even rise to the distinction of
bossing a small army of men, to their
Advantage as well as her own.
