47th annual session of the National

Manchester, New Hampshire. In his

a. question irequentiy asked in
Washington of those connected with
agriculture is whether we have rech
ed the limit of our supply of the ne
cessities of life and whether or not
anything can be dohe to decrease the
cost of living. I have systematically
refused to deal off-hand, with,this im
portant problem, as so many of the
interviews expect. It is one of vast
importance and complexity. There
are many avenues of approach' to it;
imany controlling factors and no sim
ple remedy. But I am not One of the
pessimists. I do not entertain the
thought for a second that we have ap
proximated the limit of our output
from the soil. -As a matter of fact,
we have just begun to attack the
problem. We have not even reached
the end of the pioneering stage and
have only- in a very few localities de
veloped conditions where maximum
returns may be secured. But we
haveunmistakably reached the period
where we imust think and plan our
work. We can no longer rely on the
bounty of nature. There are eviden
ces that providence is casting its
protective supervision of fools and
Americans. Conditions are emerg
ing which if rfot fundamentally dealt
with will lead us into serious embar
rassments. It is well for us to face
the facts and get our , bearings.

The problem of the individual far
mer las received' scant enough sys
temetic attention, and the problem
of rural life as a whole, has, until
recently, been practically ignored.
The story that comes from every
section is substantially the same; it
is a story of increasing tenancy and
absentee ownership; of soils deplet
ed; of inadequate business methods;
of chaotic marketing and distribu
tion; of inferior roads; of lack of
supervision of public health and san
itation; of isolated .and ill organized
social activities, and of inferior n
THE COUNTRY CHILD VERSUS
' CITY CHILD.
v Consider the position off a child in
any of the more remote sections of
the rural districts in America to-day,
and ask yourself what his opportuni
ties are for training and develop
ment and efficiency as compared with
those of a similarly endowed boy in
an urban community. The latter
lives in a house supplied with run
ning water, the purity of wjiich is
protected by ample means; walk on
sidewalks free from dust and mud;
drives along adequate roads; has ac
cess to many things that ministers to
the legitimate pleasures of living;
has at "hand the best training physi
cians and surgeons; publicly main
tained hospitals; well planned schools
of every grade from the kindergar
ten to the professional school of col
lege. And most of these things he
secures at a minimum expense
through a relatively low rate of tax
ation. The other picture is esasily
drawn. If we may confine our
thdught for a moment to the schools
alone, we find that outside of New
England, which has solved the rural
school problem' largely by eliminat
ing the rural population, all that the
vaverage country boy has access to is
an 'ungraded school, usually taught in
one room by a girl with less training
than a high s'chool graduate, receiv
ing $40 or $50 a month for seven or
eight months in the year, teaching all
ages in thirty or more classes a day.
If by any chance a boy survives this
and desires to go further it is nec
essary for his father to put him on a
train, buy his transportation, send
him tpa town, pay his board, his
tuition, and lose his services during
the session, and probably lose him
permanently from the country. I
have said it before and I am not
afraid to repeat it that I do not
quite see how a father and mother
who are ambitious for their children
can gain their own consent to con
tinue tp live in remote rural districts
under existing conditions.
THE PEOPLE THE GREATEST UN
The greatest undeveloped resource
'of any community, as our great Am
bassador to Great Britain has so
emphatically said, is vthe people.
And if we devote more enlightened
attention to the conservation and de
development of the people we shall be
relieved -of much of the concern
about the conservation and develop
ment of our natural resources.
SOME COLLEGES NOT DOING
Now this problem of the develop
ment of agriculture and of rural life
is one which requires the most se
rious thought of the best agencies in
the nation. It is on,e primarily for
the farmers themselves, and I clear
ly recognize that they have done most
and will continue to do most to solve
it. But they need, deserve, and de
mand assistance and will have it. The
nation has created certain responsi
ble instruments for their assistance.
Among these ' are the State depart
ments sof agriculture, and the State
colleges of agriculture. That all of
them have done good work no one
can question; that some of them have
superb work many will gladly recog
nize; that some of them have not
lived up to their opportunities admits
of no manner of doubt. v
Those colleges that are not doing
their duty to their States are not
wholly to blame, but in my judg
ment they are largely to blame. The
trouble in too many of our4 States
has arisen from a dispersion of agen
cies undertaking to aid in the ad
vancement of agriculture and to con-
