Reduced Crops—Answer to Haitis
Government figures show that the
farmers in the winter wheat areas
have reduced their wheat acreage by
12,000,000 acres. P.resent acrage is
about 3,000,000 less than that, of
1915. We have here the silent ans
wer of the neglected producer to un
favorable conditions. This answer
also meets the stories about great
farm prosperity effectively.
If the farmers had done well with
winter wheat last year and had the
mans now they would plant a larger
rather than a smaller acreage. Huj
there is no way by which the farmer

Decision ol the allied council to
abandon aid io Deuekine and Kol
chiik is announced in the press. Whe
ther the airtight blockade will also
be lifted is not stated. There is little
probabiliy that thai it will, for the
decision to stop direct aid is not
prompted by desire to make peace
with Russia but by the belief that aid
to the factions fighting in the field is
like sticking money into the ground,
and none of the allies can afford this.
Shortly after the petering out of

smashing defeat of Kolchak, and now

Perhaps the widespread protest by
American business men against re
fusal to allow them to send goods to
Russia for cash, wiill have an impor
tant effect on the blockade. The lack
of balance between city and agricul
tural production caused by the block
ade is probably the worst problem
Soviet Russia lias to face. .Many
allied statesmen and writers expected
this to break Soviet rule long ago.
