FAR ER FACE CRISES IN'
PRICE DROPWMEEDITH
Washington, Dec. 10.-- American
farmers face a situation due to falling
prices for farm prodlucts which should
be dealt with as a national problem,
Secretary Meredith declared in his
first annual report made public today.
On Nov. 1 prices were 33 per cent be-
low those prevailing at planting time,
the secretary of agriculture said,
adding:
"There is perhaps no single solution
for the situationtwhich the farmers
are now facing, but there are many
steps which can and should be taken
to place our agriculture on a more
satisfactory basis and to stabilize the
business of farming, not in the inter-
est of the farmers alone but in the in-
terest of the nation as a whole. A
sober national thought with regard to
the importance, the absolute necessity,
of a sustained agriculture in this coun-
try is imperative."

CARS GO
RAILROADS

Detroit, Dec. 10.-Freight cars that
developed the "wanderlust" during the
period of federal control gradually are
returning to their home roads, accord-
ing to a statement by one of the rail-
roads centering here.
During November, 1919, an average
of 25,850 cars were on this railroad's
lines, against 19,000 in November, this
year. On Nov. 1, this year, there were
14,789 cars belonging to other roads
on the railroad's lines, while on Nov.
25 the number had been reduced 678,
showing, according to railroad offi-
cials, that the homeward movement
continues.
The number of cars belonging to
the railroad that are reported on its
own lines is showing an increase each
week. Out of 729 cars returned to the
'road from other lines 323 were in such
condition that it was necessary to send
them to the slops for general over-
hauling.

- Several remedies were suggested in-t
cluding extension of cooperative mar-
keting and some means of aiding in
carrying over to periods of low pro-t
duction the surplus of years of high
production. The"question of farm and
personal credit tnust be given more
favorable consideration, the secretary
declared, and ways be found to aidj
tenant farmers or men just embarkingF
In the business of agriculture to es-
tablish themselves.t
"The road between the producer and
the consumer should be kept open and
made shorter," the report said, to in-
sure fair prices and that the consumer
will be able to buy with only "reason-.
able" profits attached' to ,the original
selling price. Cooperative marketing
undoubtedly affords an opportunity to
shorten the channel between producer
and consumer, -the secretary said, as
well as opportunity to reduce the cost
of production by use of governmental
information, as to marketing, grading.
etc.
Farmers Do Part
The farmers of America"have again
Justified the faith of the nation to meet
its requirements," Mr. Meredith de-
clared, and have produced crops esti-
mated to be worth $13,300,000,000 this
year. The combined yield of the prin-
cipal crops was 13 per cent above the
average for five years.
The corn crop of 3,199,000,000
bushels is unprecedented, represent-
ing about four-fifths of the world's
production, the report said. The sweet
potato crop of 106,000,000 bushels is
far in excess of any other year except
1919, while the rice crop of 52,000,000
bushels, is one-fourth greater than
the largest crop ever before harvested.
Tobacco production of 1,476,000,000
pounds, the sugar beet crop of 149,-
000,000 bushels, and the potato crop
of 421,000,000 bushels stand out as
high marks, while the apple produc-
tion of 236,000,000 bushels, has been
exceeded only once.
Parking Rules Now Enforced
Parking rules are being stringently
enforced. Last night, contrary to re-
peated warnings from the Ann Arbor
police department, a car was parked
directly in front of the Arcade theatre.
The owner on leaving the show found
that his car was gone. However the
matter was cleared up when it was
found that the police had quietly re-
moved it for reasons all of their own.

Accidents to School Children Decrease E
Detroit, Dec. 10.-Due, it is believed,,
to the addition of a study of accident:
prevention to the Detroit public school
curricuhm, the number of accidents
to school children here in October
showed a marked decrease over the
figures for the same month in 1919.
The number of fatal-accidents in-
creased but those of other classes
showed a decline sufficient to cut the
average for the month. Fatal acci-
dents in October, 1919, numbered
threei against nine -this year.
Serious accidents during the month
in 1919 numbered-11 and nine this
year. Minor accidents this year to-
talled 43, against 6? in October, 1919
A large proportion of the accidents
were those in which children were
struck by automobiles.
