Ihe signing of the armistice at
the close of 191s found the United
States with a relatively large supply
of food crops and a relatively short
supply of feed crops. A live stock
program involving any increase in
the number of animals necessarily
involves an increase in the produc

It appears desirable to increase
the production of hay by about one-

Not only does baseball train tbe
