Mr. Freeman stated thati he hope&y
to have a program for the meeting
ompleted witnin xne next rew days,
While the convention is primarily
training school for the farm agents,
intended to plan and lay out the
work to be done during the present
year, yet the effort is being made
to so arrange the program hat it
will have an appeal to tne interest
of the people generally. The imper
tive need of greater production of
farm products -sis. realized for thi
year, ana ail tne people must oein
terested in the co-operation which is
necessary if the required increased
in production is brought about.
To this end Mr. Freeman is en
deavoring to arrange for the coming
to this city of several of. the experts
c.f the United States- Department jot
Agriculture at' Washington to speak
on different phases of the food sit
uation. The complete program can
be announced as soon as ' it is . de
termined who can be here for the
One of tne big things, that will be
stressed at the convention will be
fhe need of an increased, meat pro
duction, especially that of pork. An
increase of ten per .cent. is. what the
government authorities state to be
absolutely requisite for the entire
country to supply actual needs, and
the farm agents will endeavor to
plan for this section to do its part
in bringing about this increase.
