Concerning tho problem" ol land set tlement America can take1 care of and Tuvwtiln tnr nvprr rrtiinli Inrt-pr nnntt. lathm under even more favorable ctv.i cumntanccs and In greater p-osperlty. Interest In land for homes and farms increases in the Nation as tho popula tion growa. It has become more marked as the area of public land suit able and available for agriculture has diminished. It is intensified at the present timo by reason of tho sugges tion and desire that returned soldiors and others who may wish to secure farms shall have an opportunity to' do so undo; suitable conditions. It finds expression, too, in discussions of the number of tenant, farmers an in its morning and sfgniflcance. ! ?That there .is still room in the Na tion for many more reople on farms Is clear. The United States proper contains about 1.900.0(f0.000 acres of land, of which an area of 1.140.000,000 acres, or, 60 per cent, is tillable. Ap proximately 367.000,000 acres, or 32 per cpnt of this was planted in croos in 191fi. In other wdrds, for every 100 acres raw tilled 300 acres may be uti lized' whon the country is fully settled.

It means that farm In? mus be profitable and th'at society must be willing to pay the price. Under no other condi tions can firming expand. It means, too,' that only as many will or need stay on farms as may be necessary to supply what tho consumers will take at prices which will justify production. Many people speak as if they thought there should be no limit to the number engaged in agriculture or to produc tion of crops. The farmer must con sider his balance Just as much as any other business man, The number of Individuals remaining in the farming Industry will, in the long run, con tinue to adjust itself roughly to the economic demand and will increase as ft expands or as relative economies aro effected. AERIAL SERVICE. Lieutenant Hogland'B flight from Sacramento to Seattle can be said to be hut a limited success. If it has demonstrated any aeronautical fact, it is that long-distance flying is still a hazardous business, and that before it is possible to inaugurate long-d's-larioe routes for mail or other pur poses considerable improvement will bavo t" bo made. Manifestly a fast ma)l servlco tjiat is dependent upon the wsatber, rain, wind, etc., Is open to objections, for while the airplane travels at a high, rare of speed while It Is traveling, )ts "liapliity tofd'fW is lively,, to, niake up for its bp&m U ihe afr.

Tha race botween the alrp(ano and tho mall car has been something in the nature of a tortoise-hare con tost. It may bo that wJion tho aviators got back from Europo tho practical possibilities of tho airplane will bo increased. Long and dangerous nights appear, from all our rending, to Imvo been a routlno business on tho front. Our oxporlnoco at homo hasn't been of this character. Cross-country flights nro uniformly unsuccessful to date. So far as thoy havd gono tho aviator has covered tho distance in short "flying time," but his actual time ha3 hardly been better than or dinary train service. No'nmg is more certain, however, than tin n great deal of thought wll' bo stl riu to the airplane in tho future. But, so far. ilighis such as that t Lieutomuu f.oglnnd only prove thf number and quality of the i practical difficulties that still remain to bo solved. - PAPER RESTRICTIONS OFF. Literally speaking, "tho lid la off" on all paper restrictions. Tho Pulp and Pnpe.r Section of the Vir Industries Board has notified the mills that all obligations, regarding conservation of pulp paper are cancelled. One of- tho principal reasons for paper conserva tion was the necessity for diverting tho chloride bleach and similar chemi cals from tho manufacture of paper to the production of poison gas- for use on the Western front. A necessity that no longer exists.' This all listens well, but what con cerns most of us, now that the war s over, is how much longer the mills will use the war as Justification for maintaining the sky-high price. Mr. Brndstreet, of commercial rat ing fame, states: "Eighty-four per cent of tho failures in the shoe busi ness wo're of non-advertising mer chants!" That's worth keeping In mind because almost as high a per centage applies to nearly every other line of retail business. We 'aro willing to sign an armts- Itice with our enemy.

A food map of Europe toduy shows not a single country In which the fu ture does not hold threat of serious difficulties and only a small part which Is not rapidly upproai-hlng the famine point. With the exception of the Pkralne only those countries which have maintained marine commerce have sufficient food supplies to meet actual needs until next harvpst, nnd even In the Ukraine, with stores accu mulated on the farnfs, there Is famine In the largo centers of population. Belgium and northern Prance, as well as Serbia, appear on the hunger map distinct from the rest of IJurope because they stnnd In n different rela tion from the other nations to the peo ple of the United States.

This rural food saving achievement, accomplished in scarcely six months' time, was In direct response to re quests by the Pood Administration, which asked farmers mid thrvshermen to reduce harvest losses from about 8Vi per cent. the estimated average In normal times to the lowest possi ble minimum. Country grain thresh ing committees carried Into every grain growing community tho official recommendations tor accomplishing the results desired, In numerous Instances drivers of rncks with leaky bottoms were sent from tho fields to repair their equli ment and frequently had order thresh ing machines wflre stopped until, the cnuse of waste was removed.

Germany, on tho other hnnd. need not figure in such a map for Ameri cans because there is no present Indi cation that we shall be Called on at nil to take thought for tho food needs of Germany. Germany probably can enre for her own food problem If she Is given access to shipping and Is enabled to distribute food to the cities with dense populations, which are the trou ble centers. England, France, tiie Netherlands nnd I'ortugnl, all of which have been malntulned from American supplies, have sufficient food to meet Immediate1 needs, but their futuro presents seri ous difficulties. Tho same Is true of Spain und tho northern neutral coun tries Norway, Sweden nnd Denmark whose ports have been, open and who have been able to draw to some degree upon foreign supplies.
