farmers are "good fellows".
We are glad that you came this
year Mr. Farmer. We want jou to
come back again next year and bring

we want you to take an active inter

come back next year.
SOLVE IT SOW.
It Is not the economic side of the
farmer's life that is the big problem
today. To be sure that is a problem.
But most farmers recognize that it is
not the pressing one. The problem
that demands immediate solution Is
that of the social life on the farm.
It has not been the economic attrac
tions that have taken the young men
from the farm to the cities. It has
rather been the social attractions.
There Is no doubt that in the past
there has been too much hum-drum
work-a-day life on the farm. The
side attractions have been too few.
The monotony of the work has been

Professor Plckard praises the exhi

to be an imitation of nature to be
good. Probably the masterpiece of

can be painted by using, not pure
white, but greyish blue."
The collection Is the same as the
New York exhibit of last year. All
the paintings are done by Americans
