FAIR PLAY, STE. GENEVIEVE, MISSOURI.
NATION IN DANGER
arm Abandonment Has Created
Most Serious Situation.
Food Supply Threatened Through the
Drift of the Population to the
Cities Now Is Great Opportu
nity to Take Up Land.
The question, "How Is the country
to he fed If the poptilntlon continues
to drift to the cities?" Is one thnt
should create nn imitation that will
bring about n reply that will mean n
solution. The census recently com
pleted, revenls a sltuntlon truly nlnrni
Ing, one thnt hns never been known
In the United States before. The ur
bnn population Is now greater than
that of the rural districts by about
4,000,000. Cities and towns, each with
more than 2,f00 Inhabitants, contain
M ,31 8,032 persons, or fil.-l per cent of
the total population, while the farms
and smnller towns together claim only
rl,399,739 persons, or 4S.0 per cent of
As Is pointed out by nn Influential
Chicago dnlly. "the drift to the cities
Is thus proved and, reduced to figures,
showing n top-heavy condition of the
Fnrmlng Is and must remain the
basic Industry of the world, and cer
tainly should remain the basic Indus
try of n nation with n continental
nren like ours. It is small profit to
gnln the markets of the world with
manufactured poods If ngrlcultiirc has
decayed so badly as to furnish an un
certain subsistence for our people, and
fluctuating crops nre reflected In price
chnnges that upset the economic life
of the country. Yet we are within
measurable distance of thnt condition.
If the present or recent drift toward
the cities continues.
Most writers on this topic tnke It
for granted that young folks go from
farms to cities merely to make more
money. Doubtless thnt Is sornethlnp
of n motive at nil times and was a
very strong one In the period Imme
diately after the war, when city Indus
tries pnld npes totally Impossible for
farmers to rival.
It Is hoped that this drifting has
reached Its apex. Unless It hns, and
there still remains a possibility of Its
rontlnuanre, the effect cannot lie fore
told. The preat wave of manufactures
for war purposes has censed, nnd with
It the number of thoe employed In
factories Is diminishing by thousands
dally. It Is therefore hoped that there
will again be heard the slogan, "For
ward to the Land." If prices to which
farm land hns reached are prices pro
hibitive to ninny, the opportunity Is
still open elsewhere. There nre states
possessing lnrpc nrens of good land
thnt mny still be hud nt prices within
the reach of innny, nnd It Is doubtless
true thnt in self-preservntlon It will
he necessnry to bring those lands un
der cultivation. The prices nre not
high, considering their value. Then,
too. there nre the lands of Western
Cnnnda. that hold out nn Inviting pros
pect. Reports from there show thnt
the prosperity of the farmers there Is
not mythical. Farming there Is con
ducted on scientific principles, nnil
the cllmnte is such ns nppenls. The
production amply repays nil the ex
penditure thnt mny be made. The
social conditions nre of n character
thnt mnke farm life n plonsure, nnd
tends to keep the young mnn and
young womnn from pining for urban
life with so many drawbacks. If con
ditions ns above mentioned, showing
such n lnrge percentage of population
In the cities nnd towns, continues, they
will require food. The opportunity to
supply It Is by the means suggested.
f!o forward to the farm, become In
dependent, nnd become n factor In
supplying the world's needs In cattle,
sheep, grain nnd such other commo
dities as the farm will produce nnd
the resident of the city requires.
