THE AGRICULTURAL SITUATION
REVIEWED BY SECRETARY
Henry C. Wallace of Iowa, Appointed by President Harding,
Explains Present Agricultural Situation
in Noted Address to Fanners.
By HENRY C. WALLACE,
Secretary of Agriculture
Let me speak fir* of the agricul
turai situation in general. I think if
we can get an understanding of this,
the proper work of the Department of
Agriculture will become apparent We
must approach it from two angles,
first, present conditions, which are de
cidely unusual, and second.
which may develop in the future.
I doubt whether the people of the
East realize Just what has happened
to the farmers of the producing
tions. Take the grain and livestock
1 producing country of the Central West
for example, and I speak of this be
cause it is the region with which I
am most familiar and also bel a use it
is the region which give« us our great
j surplus crops. We have the finest rur
I al civilization, taken as a whole, the
J world has ever seen ; our farmers aver
: age very high in intelligence ; they
produce more per man than any other
farmers in the world; they have a
! dopted the most advanced system of
farming ever developed. Notwith
j standing all this they are now In a
most trying period and are suffering
! severe financial losses,
j throughout the nation, especially those
i in the South and West, are expt-rl end
ing exactly the same trouble. The cot
ton farmers of the South, the rice far
mers, the cattle and sheep growers of
the far West, the fruit growers; all
, are passing through this sann- valley
of discouragement and financial stress

land cost, the labor cost, and
thing else which ought to be included.
lt is true that the land charge is I

as great as many people suppose. ,

of the sort. The average advance of

further that if we omit tlhe

still considerably lielow what It cost
him to produce it. The largest item of
cost in corn production is not land, but

Now note the prices of some of the

of farm bunds are about 100

In other words while the farmer Is
selling the things he produces at prices
no higher, and for greut surplus crops
lower than 'the pre war normal, he
must buy practically every thing he
