and wise businewi men are not basing their plans on
the expectation of a return to even normal activity.

winter wheat belt as a whole appeared,
however, to indicate actual damage
as yet was small, and It was contend

mal mild weather justified apprehen

from the green bug pest had but sel

edge that no radical harm had been
done by the green bugs since isi.
The loss then was roughly 61.000,000
bushels of wheat and 40,000,000 Dusn
