"We have already discovered that the farmer is not getting the exorbitant profits out of the beef he raises," says Secretary Wilson of the Department of Agriculture in discussing the high prices of food supplies. "I have no doubt in the world," he continues, "that the same conditions will be found to prevail in most of the other lines of farm products. There is ample excuse for some of the increase in the cost of living over what it was years ago. The farm area is not keeping pace with the demands for foodstuff. The cities seem to have more attractions for the laboring man than do the rural communities. The horde of immigration, as well as the ever-increasing native population, must be fed, and the farm is expected to furnish the food."
