have been the traditional "mort
gage lifters" and the pride of the
combelt farmers. This forecast,
was one of the dominant themes
of the midwestem conference of
agriculture, industry and re
search which drew an attendance
of about 500 here this week, in
cluding representatives from 28
colleges and organizations in 14
It was intertwined with discus
sions of impending trends of im
port to agriculture and serious
questioning of the rw tionalMic
objections of some of the chem
urgists attending the conference.
Why streamlined hogs? ; For
practical reasons and not mere
styling, it appeared J Housewives
are using less and less lard each
year as chemists perfect the pro
cesses of making vegetable cook
ing oils. Consequently less and
less and less market for the fatty
But if the combelt farmers be

yield meaty bacon akin to that
which has won such favor in Eu
rope, what will become of the
millions of bushels of corn which
in normal crop years bring such
bad dreams to the crop reduction
ists in Washington?
Dr. H. E. Barnard, director of
research, Farm Chemurgie Coun

20 years from now few hogs will
see corn in its natural state. The
farmer will haul his crop to a

Dr. Knight said that In the not

fuel made from starch in corn
and other crops.
Dr. Christensen, operator of

agricultural products, said that
at normal corn prices alcohol can
now be made for about 17 cents
a gallon. A mixture of 10 per
cent alcohol and 90 per cent gas
oline has the same antiknock
qualities as "premium gasoline,"
he claimed, while a mixture of 15
per cent alcohol has a higher an
ti-knock rating than any "pure
gasoline" now available.
Forecasts were made that in a
few years the alcohol motor fuel
requirements of the nation would

his corn more than 20 times as
