to get In touch with thl great and
only fundamental wealth producer,
the land. The world la fast coming
to tba and of tha lane In production
on (he land already In uae. Human

lin baa been vanquished for all time
the next great duty will be the re
construction of the wrecked part of
the world. Thia will make neceaanry
the greater production of the food
stuff for the countries that will then
be able to get them. It la extremely
unllkoly that any appreciable de
crease In the prlcea of farm products
will occur for aome time after the
conclusion of the war, If ever. Bo
much for the financial aide. It la al
so a neceaalty In thl time of atreaa to
make ejrery available acre produce It
utmost Anyone with the under
Handing and the grit to make nature
give up her riches through the land
ahould be on the Job on aome of the

great expense the progressive men of
this aectlon have made It possible for
very one of these rich acrea to pro
duce wonderfully of the needod thing
(or humanity. It Is your opportunity
and now la the time to icraxp It, A
