A; Russian agricultural authority, Professor Ossinsky, of

been previously stated, lie says the normal pre-war produc
tion of wheat was 75?,OQO,OOQibushels, and that the produc
tion this year was 660,000,000 bushels, besides a large yield of
rye and bats. And rye is more used in Russia than wheat, so
.that a good deal of this wheat production should be export-
able, and shipments to France and Germany have been re-
ported several times. The wheat harvest this year is more
jthaa three times what it was in 1921J The professor is mak-
jing a toiir of the .United States and has been giving special)
Secretary Jardme has been warning the farmers against
increasing their wheat production because so much is being
produced abroad. Before the war Russia was our chief com-
Detitor 'In the "world's wheat - markets, but when Turkey

year it has cut no figure in the world's supply. If it fed itself
it was regarded as doing very well. Wheat has had to be
shipped to Russia to relieve famine sufferers. This year the
harvest Js nearly up to the pre-war average, and hereafter
Russian competition must be reckoned on.
- ' The area sown to wheat in Argentina is slightly more
than last. year, and the temperature and rainfall have been
very favorable. The Australian area sown to wheat is slight
ly laa Trinn last vpar anr! climatic conditions have been unfav
orable and it is unlikely that the harvest will be nearly as good
as the last one. The wheat production the past season in 29
'countries, producing 98 per cent of the Northern Hemisphere
Iwheat outside of Russia and China, was 8 per cent abovethe
crop of last year, but not equal to the crop of 1923.
I The American "farmer may look for something more re
munerative than wheat, but' he need not get into a panic
because Russia is back in the exporting class and other coun
tries are doing better than they have done in some recent
years ' : V : - .
I ' For many countries must import wheat every year
And the time is'approaching when the United States will
have no wheat to export." It would be here now if our coun
try were self sufficient In sugar, wool, flax and linen, starches
'and dextrines. filberts and walnuts, and a hundred and one
'other articles of commerce the buying of which abroad is a
disgrace. . "1. - .
I In the mean time, the farmers of the United States may
reflect,Swth a great deal of satisfaction that ther are pro
tected by a duty on wheat .of 30 cents a bushel.
Modern methods haverevolutionized commerce and in-
dustryl Nearly fifty hours were; f onnerly required to .cut
knd thresh an acre of wheat. Today, less than one-half hour
is required to do this work with the ''combined" method. Com

- And' these great and rapid .changes have made an occas

'and commerce imperative in order to,ascertain what just has
accomplished and whether we are going. Today, Wed
nesday; has been set aside in this American Education Week
for this purpose. .. . ' ; ,
I On this day the public should put forth special effort to
learn what 'their schools are doing and what are their real
keeds. It is a good time for making the acquaintance of the
teachers and to offer your'cooperation in the solution of prob
lems involving both school administration and the children.
Do not longer expect the teacher to have a perfect under-

' .. It would further add to the teachers efficiency to become
acquainted with the home surroundings and conditions of
'those under her charge. But as this is quite impossible, she
should at least make the acquaintance of the parents A wis"e
and practical educator was he who said : "If you -would, do
your best by the pupil you, should study his grand parents."
j . ' Notetoday, whether the school is contributing to the
development of attitudes and behavior such as initiative,-tact,
Persistence and industry which determines so largely conduct
'among associates and prepares the youth for successful com
petition in life's struggles; Is'the pupil being trained for
Efficiency ? Dolour high school boys and girls bear this
motto? "The world does not owe me a living; but I owe the
2ommunitr. the world, a life. Does the school train for
individuality, for scholarship, for character and service?
