Washington. Food prices must rise again and rise soon before the com ins: of reul prosperity. All the farmer mines is sold for mo Utile; he is re ceiving fifty to sixty cent dollars for whut he sells and paying loo-cent dol lars for what he buys. The pendu lum of price readjustment has swung too violently and too far in his direc tion. One of two things must happen, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace be lieves, before the country can be truly prosperous). As he sees the dilemma, the horns are described thus: 1. Farm products and this means all foodstuffs must rise approximate ly 7(1 per cent in wholesale prices to the farmer; or 2. The retail price of everything else must drop still further until the buyer's dollar and the tanner's dol lar are worth exactly the same amount. Present prospects are that both movements will be noticeable within a short time. Increased prices of food stuffs will be brought about to some extent. It Is believed, by the enact ment of a tariff sufficiently high to prevent .the dumping into American markets of farm products raised abroad., these products at present be ing sold at prices lower than the cost of producing the commodities on American farms.
