"Dairymen are not profiteering,"
said Prof. C. H. Eckles of the dairy
department of the University in an
interview yesterday. He added that
the dairy men were really getting the
worst of the bargain.
"The value of feed," he said, "is
forcing the dairymen to put prices up.
Good alfalfa hay, which usually costs
$16 a ton, now costs $37. The cost ofl
corn silage has increased about 50 per
"Because the producers 'meet and
decide that the price of milk shall
be $3.22 a hundred pounds, the peo
ple conclude at once that the dairymen
are profiteering. This occurred in
Illinois not far from St. Louis, which
is the Southern Illinois market. A
similar situation arose In the vicinity
of Chicago and New York. The Chi
cago situation was settled by the Food
Administration, while in JJew York as
in St. Louis, the producers fixed the
"The export trade In cheese and
evaporated milk has increased tre
mendously. In 1915 the export of
evaporated milk amounted to 15,000,
000 pounds, and in 1916 it reached
155,000,000 pounds. Last year 10,
000,000 pounds of cheese was exported,
whereas the first nine months of the
current jear 66,000,000 pounds have
By far the greater part of this
dairy produce Is taken by the belliger
ent nations. Much is being used by
their armies, because these products
are concentrated food and are being
used as substitutes for meat. This'
export trade has played its part In
setting the price of dairy products
In this country.
"It has been estimated that the
dairy herds of Europe, exclusive of
Germany, have been reduced by 20,-
000,000 head since the war began.
This is the result of a scarcity of
cattle feed and a strong demand for
"In America the pressure of high
cost of feed has had one decidedly
beneficial effect on dairy husbandry.
About 7 per cent of the cows have
been butchered because they were
considered unprofitable; consequently
dairy cattle standard has been raised.
"The man who is producing butter
for the market nasi still a harder
problem. People will not buy butter
when it goes beyond a certain price,
since the housewife can so easily
find substitutes. For example, at
present he would have to sell butter
at 60 cents a pound to realize a fair
profit; but because' of these circum
stances, he is forced to let it go at
40 to 45 cents a pound.
In addition to these reverses, dairy
men are having a harder time than
ever to get help, due to the high
wages offered for industrial workers
in the cities.
"The person who thinks that the
dairymen are realizing the so-called
'war profits' are sadly mistaken. As
a matter of fact they are hardly mak
ing a fair profit on investment."

Tfie following article about the
Thorstein B. Veblen, lecturer on
economics at the University, Is from
Commerce and Finance, a weekly
Journal published In New. York. It
was written by Mr. Ferrl, associate
editor of the Journal:
"Thorstein Veblen is the most
original, powerful and profound
thinker In America. For sheer intel
lectual power, we doubt whether there
Is his equal in the United States to
"Before you read his works, perhaps
one caution should be given. If you
are Just weary enough to enjoy Hall
Caine. Harold Bell Wright or Robert
Chambers, don't turn to Veblen. But
if, instead, your mlnfo Is alert, a little
dissatisfied with old-maidish stuff and
Just a trifle hungry ror a book mat
is incisive, brillant and suggestive,
then begin with Veblen's first book:
'The Theory of the Leisure Class,' and
complete the list 'The Theory of
Business Enterprise,' 'The Instinct of
Workmanship,' 'Imperial Germany
and the Industrial Revolution,' and his
latest, published by the Macmlllan
Company, 64-66 Fifth Avenue, New
York City, for $2 'The Nature of
Peace' or, to give the full title, 'An
Inquiry into the Nature of Peace and
the Terms of Its Perpetuation.'
His Distinctive Style.
"While It Is not necessary fit have
read all his books to appreciate and
enjoy 'The Nature of Peace.' it would
be advisable to do so. In many re
spects it is an application of several
of his theories which are more fully
expounded In his previous books. Ana
besides, the style of It is peculiarly
his own. Some acquaintance with it
is necessary to understand it easily.
The beginner would undoubtedly be
amazed at hte sentences and words as
they rolled on words almost as long
as sentences and sentences almost as
long as paragraphs. Yet he Juggles
them with such apparent ease that
you cannot help admiring such a
" 'The Nature of Peace,' like all his
books, displays his remarkable cool
ness, his clear insight that dips
swiftly lielow the surface, a freedom
not only from prejudice, but from the
fetters of accepted theories, and
throughout, but most completely In his
last book, a trenchant and biting Irony
that Illuminates his pages and ex
plodes the enemy.
Advice to Publishers.
"If space permitted we would like to
discuss 'The Nature of Peace." w
must rest content with saying that It
is one of the few permanent contrt
buUons by America on the question of
"The publishers could perform no
better educational task than to ad
vertlse all Veblen's books so extea
slvely that they might at least become
as well known as some of the sixth
rate books now monopolizing the
mind and money of the public."
