Experts say that important pro blems are confronting 1 agricul ture. It is estimated that the population of the United States will be near 150,000,000 souls*with in twenty-five years and these ex perts are wondering where the food they will eat is coming from. Conservatively estimated, it is said that 38,000,000 acres will have to be added to the nation’s pres ent actual crop land to support a population that the United States will probably have by 1950. That can mean only one thing— that the demand for products of the farm is going to increase con stantly and that the consequent reduction of supply will operate for the benefit of the farmers of the United States. The tillers of the soil every where have been downcast and heavy of heart. Being dropped Suddenly out of a cloud of afflu ence that came with the war and remained for a few years after wards, it is little wonder that far mers became discouraged at the sudden change which took away their war profits and made it prac tically impossible to make much more than a living off their land. But they should not be too im patient. The troubles that have beset agriculture for the past few years are going to pass, and when they do, agriculture is going to come into its rightful place in the business world, such as it never did before. It is but natural to reason that in due time, farm products are going to become scarce on account of farms being abandoned and farmers being attracted to the higher wages of the industrial cen ters. This condition, combined with increased demand due to the constantly growing population, means better times ahead. 3he depression is only tempor ary. The law of compensation is going to bring the pendulum back. All farmers need to do is to be optimistic and keep pegging aw’ay. There is a better day coming—and when it comes, the tiller of the Red Pencil Mark Clearance Sale Starts Saturday July 19 Ends Wednesday July 30 As a result of the backward Spring season, our stocks are much larger than they should be at this time: to reduce the stock quickly the red marking pencil has marked the prices down —down —down on everything in the store.

WHITTIER’S STORE With a Down Stairs Store of Bargains Rhinelander, Wisconsin VICTORIES that build LEADERSHIP Firestone Leads on Speedway with Five Record Breakers When the race driver selects his tires he does so realizing that his life and chances for success de pend upon them. It is significant that all of the ten money winners in the Indianapolis race were Firestone shod. Firestone, using gum-dipping and other special processes, has developed tires to such a high degree of efficiency that at Indian apolis, May 30th, the following drivers broke the world’s record for 500 miles over thi'. brick track, making many rounds at over 100 miles per hour. Never before were tires put to such gruelling service, where it was necessary for every ounce of rubber and every fibre of fabric to work in perfect unison with every other part.

Scores of unso licited testimonials emphasize the long mileage Firestone Gum-Dipped Cords deliver —which builds leadership in service, safety and economy. Leadership on Cabs, Buses and Trucks The largest taxicab companies in the five largest cities in the United States use Firestone Gum- Dipped Cords exclusively. One fleet alone, the Yellow Cab Co. of Chicago, uses over one-half million tire miles per day.

Every native American Indian in this country becomes a citizen of the United States, under the new Indian citizenship act recently signed by the President. The granting of citizensihp does not remove the restrictions on Indian lands under government guardian- Firestone for yeai-s has been first to develop tires and rims complete which would meet the heavy trucking loads, great strains and demand for trac tion. By originating and carrying forward the Ship by Truck movement, and establishing Ship by Truck bureaus in all large cities, Firestone helped to speed up highway transportation and reduce costs. Balloon Tire Leadership Firestone’s latest contribution to motoring is die low air pressure or Balloon Tire. This, the original full-size Balloon, was made practical by the special Firestone Gum-Dipping process, in sulating every fibre of each cord, adding great strength and stamina. Firestone has also simpli fied the application of full-size Balloon tires to your present car by designing a special unit con sisting of tires, tubes, rims and spokes applied by any dealer at a very low cost. Leadership Against British Rubber Restriction Act Attacking the unsound and uneconomic character of the British Rubber Restriction Act limiting the exportation of rubber from the Far East, Firestone was the one large tire manufacturer to take up the cause for the car owner. Soon after the agitation was started for America to produce rubber under its own control, the cost of crude rubber was reduced and tire prices brought back to normal. Dealer Leadership Through Tire Quality and Service Through Firestone dealers you can obtain or ganized service and the soundest values on the market, whether, you need a Ford 30x3Ve Fabric, a set of full-size Balloon Gum-Dipped Cords or a 10-inch truck tire. ship, the Supreme Court having held that wardship is not inconsis tent with citizenship. A kauri tree has recently been discovered in the New Zealand bush which rises to a height of seventy-five feet to the first branch and measures twenty-two feet in girth. It is estimated to contain more than 195,000 super ficial feet of timber. There are approximately 52,000 post offices in the United States, or one to every fifty-eight square miles. In most foreign countries there is a post office to every two or three square miles.
