'l'nat a I lei noon he drovfc me through the valley. Ou each side ot tne foau vvete terlile liunis, goon houses, laigt barns, silos, luxunant crops ot corn, oa%v clover and alfalia. Iu eveij pasture good cows glazed. 1 had heard of tiie worn out, ai>aii ■ lotted farms of the eaM and 1 be lieved my friend was showing me a tavored section. 1 asked luin to tjiow me some oi the abandoned farms. His reply wa«, "We have no abandoned farms—we did have, but learned our lesson." "For many years we have been Im porting bran from the northwq t, earn and oats from the middle west ami cotton seed meal front the south. These we have been leediug to good cows ami returning the fertility from them to our soils. The next worn out farmr you will see will lie in the mid dle west, the not lit west and the south. Three hundred years were required to wear out our lands. We did it with oxi-n. It it now being done with lour horse teams." That was before the day of thi tractor with which t hough tie.-- men exhaust soils twice as fast it. they could with four horse teams and im measurably fa ter than they did with oxen.

He h.iti been surprised to find that they wen eagerly purchased. He asked the hif eastern bankers why they felt so fa vorable toward the.-e mortgages. Tin answer was, that the vicinity sur rounding Waterloo had become a dal ly section of considerable prominent that it is well known that the produc ing value of lands in a dairy section does not decrease, but increatc.-, that dairying insures permanency of agri culture; that where soil ii lieing maintained and increased, whelt the producing value of land is In ( •eased, there, not only laud iellini.' values, but especially ami loan value.- become enlarged. He was also toV that as a result of this dairy devel opment the land loan valuei within a radius of 100 miles of Waterloo, hi increased on the records of Wall Street JSO per acre. The big eastern banker realizes the importance of the cow to the ci»m munity. He is willing to back up h> judgment of the cow with hi? mon ey. He doaat guess—lie know;. Of how much greater importance is 1* to you—a leader in yoar community— to not only know of the relationship of the cow to land values, but to take some active steps to insure this cow ocedpying a more important position ifi the agriculture of your community You miKd be the leader in this dairy development. I was not so greatly impressed wit this story until recently I told it to a banker ia South Dakota. Imme diately he grasped the v fad on of what a cow really means.

Two of the more important steps taken by the conference were tjje. decisions favor ing the reorganisation of the South ern Tuberculosa conference which met 'ast in 192t\ an| the organization of ti *: Southern Sanatorium association. The representatives which register ed from nearly every southern state agreed on all measures that meai t progress and success in the tubcrcu 0.-is work. One of the most helpful discussion* at the conference was that on stand ards and classifying and rating tu- Lerculosis sanatoria. Enlightening studies of this subject made bv the National Tuberculosa association were given. 'n the discussion of the vibject, "'•'anatorium Care of Negroe;," it was clearly noted that great progie* ha been made in the south in ihe i fi'w ye; is in treating the .'.la -nb us negro. Tuberculins and the negro is no longer a- hopeless condition.
