Springfield. May 10. At the third
New England conference of Farm Bu
reaus held in the Auditorium in this
city today, E. B. Cornwell, president
of the Vermont Federation of Farm
Bureaus, declared that publicity is the
greatest need of the farmer T. B.
Putnam of the New Hampshire As
sociation said that people ought to be
informed regarding the work of farm
A New England publicity bureau.
! it was thought, should be established
to cover the six Mates.
J. W. Coverdale, secretary of the
American Federation of Farm Bu
reaus, spoke on the work of the fed
eration in Iowa, where the farmers
are said to be the be'st organized of
any State in the union. They have
120,000 life members secured at $5
each. He said in part:
"The United States is facing the
biggest food shortage it has ever
known. In my own state of Iowa, help
is so scarce that no more than 1.)
per cent of the corn and other grain
acreage, will be seeded down. This
has not come about through a refusal
of the grain growers to pay high
wages. They are offering as high as
$ll." a month with board and washing
and are totally unable to get men.
"I am informed that in New York
State thousands of farms will not be
worked this year because of a short
age of help, tl'.e situation is Nation
wide. It is just as serious in live-stock
Throughout the Middle West I have
had reports that the shrinkage in
pork production will be from 20 to 25
per cent. This is due to a slump in
the price for hogs at a time when
grain was still high. This led the
breeders to sacrifice their breeding
stock and there is nothing in the pre
sent condition to induce them to make
extra efforts to build up again.
"The shortage of help is the chief
cause of this dropping off in produc
tion. In Iowa alone we are short
10,000 men for farm labor." t
PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN
RECIPENTS ODD GIFTS.
Early presidents of the United
States -'received strange gifts during
"their terms as executives, the strang
checse sent to Thomas Jefferson, with
the admiring inscription, "the greatest
est of them all being, perhaps the
cheese in America for the greatest
man in America." It was conveyed to
Washington by a six-horse team.
Jefferson insisted upon paying for it,
and it lasted for a whole year.
Andrew Jackson was the recipient
of such gifts as a whole hog from
Kentucky, whisky from, Pennsylvania
beef from New York and a cheese that
weighed half a ton or more from New
England. The Blue room In the White
House contains the most famous of
the gifts received by American pres
idents, the golden mantel clock pres
ented to Washington by Lafayette,
who received it from Napoleon. In
the' Green room is the Gobelin tapes
try, made by a process which is now
a lost art, which the Emperor of
Austria gave Mrs. Grant.
MAGAZINES MAY BE
FORCED TO SUSPEND.
Owing to the paper shortage over
the country, it was announced in
one of the leading New York' dailies
last week that many leading magaz
ines may have to-temporarily suspend
publication. The publishers of several
fieridoicals of national circulation
lave decided to combine two issues
in one or to reduce the number of
pages in each because of the shortage
resulting from the strike. The situa
tion is exceedingly critical among the
publishers of magazines and news
papers all over the country.
