the* lowest condition on record. A ;
forecast ot a crop ot only 540 million

age planted to winter wheat Is estimated
to be 42,170,000 acres, an In- !
crease of four per cent over the area i
planted one year ago. In the campaign <
to produce a billion bushels of wheat
next year to help feed our allies an i
acreage of 47,837,000 to winter wheat
was advocated. Failure to reach this
amount was not due apparently to the
lntentoln of farmers but to the adverse
conditions unfavorable weather,
late harvest of other crops and shortage
of farm help preventing putting
out of full acreage desired.
