In Ag Economics
The economic problems of se
riculture are to worldwide in
their scope that they furnish an
other common basis for interna
tional cooperation that should
add its share to the progress to
ward world peace, reports D. Cur
tis Mumford, head of the depart
ment of farm management at
Oregon State college, on his re
turn from attending the sixth in
ternational conference of agri
cultural economists in England.
The session was attended by
62 delegates from 21 countries
who spent the 10 days from Aug
ust 28 to September 6 in dis
cussing such questions as chang
ing iarm population, land ten
ure, international trade in farm
products, effects of modern me
thods of farming, agriculture in
India and many other subjects.
aii countries have common
agricultural economics problems
providing a scientific bond am
ong specialists in this field re
gardless of political differences
among the various countries,"
said Professor Mumford. Russia
was the principal country not
represented at the meeting. Sov
iet officials sent word that other
pressing matters prevented send
ing delegates from that country.
Professor Mumford said it was
apparent even to the visitor that
England is in the midst of a
crisis which Lord Huntington,
joint parlimentary secretary to
the ministry of agriculture, told
the conference is the most se
vere since the black death stalk
ed the land centuries ago.
Delegates were asked to limit
themselves to two baths per week
and to turn off all electric lights
except when absolutely needed.
The explanation was made that
every time a hot water tap is
opened or an electric light is
turned on coal is used of which
there is a critical' shortage.
English agriculture is now en
thusiastic over the launching of
a national agricultural advisory
service which is functioning on
smewhat the same plan as the
federal cooperative extension ser
vice in this country, Mumford
found. Under this program it is
hoep to boost food production
even beyond the high levels of
the war years. All European del
egates agreed that getting Ger
many on her economic feet is
essential to any lasting recovery
of western Europe in general.
