Farm and Industry
Figures on total far mincome in
Oregon and industrial workers' in
come in the United States show re
markable similarity in trends over
a period of years, according to data
published by the O. S. C. extension
service. The relationship is not so
close in respect to farm income from
some commodities as for others,
however. Consumer demand and
prices for certain items like meat,
butter, and fruits and vegetables,
tend to follow the fortunes of indus
trial workers in a greater degree
than demand and prices for some

"elastic" and prices react largely to
the size of the supply, as well as
being affected somewhat by the
strength of demand.
The general relationship between
the income of fruit and vegetable
producers in the United States and
the income of the industrial work
ers is shown in the accompanying
chart. The incomes of industrial
workers is thus shown to be a pret
ty fair barometer of probable gross
farm income from fruits and veget
ables. Moderate deviations in the
trend in income of the two groups
of producers are usually associated
with variations in the supply of the
commodities, changes in foreign de
mand for export products, and other
The period 1924 to 1929 was a rel
atively stable period on both farm
income and industrial workers' in
come, but both took a heavy tail
spin from 1930 to 1932, then rose to
gether until 1937. Extension service
reports show a sharp decline during
