R. Lloyd, director of the arm devel. opment bureau of the Memphis Chain b:r of Commerce. Dr. Lloyd says records show thai modern implements used on the farms in northern states have advanced farming interests to such extents that southern farmers are unable to com. pete any longer with the one-horse flow. The nrthern farmer average four and one-half horses to.each farm hand which requires improved mplements in proportion to the num ber ot horses, while the southern farmer averages nine-tenths to the 800 pound mule per hand with the anti- quated one-horse plow. "and yet," said Dr. Lloyd, "we wonder why our farm- ing in the south is not profitable. ] "There are two things that must] happen to make our farms proflta.] ble," continued Dr. Lloyd. "'First, we i of necessity must increase the yield t per acre. This can only be accom. I plished wit h better breaking, better raltivation and more preparation with the use of modern farm machiflery. t "Second, instead of having one man following one horse or a mule with the one-horse plow covering only a [mall area each day in breaking, pre paring, and cultivation of the ground, the time has come when Implements requiring two or more horses should be used. making it possible for one man to do the work heretofore done by two -Vv can no longer offer any excuse{ for the one-horse farmin for the rea- son that one-horse plowing is not as deep and as vffective either in break. ing and preparation of the ground necessary Ior better development of jseed beds."

Prospects of federal grand .jury ction arose to darken the plaits of oil refiners of mid-con- tinent fis, to sliut down all their plants during August in order to re- duce the surplus and keep up prices. Following the announcement that operators at a conference here had decided to close down, government agencies began at once to investigate the situation It is hehl that such a move would be a violation of the anti-trust laws. as it is clearly for the purpose of keeping up prices and $hutting off competition. The government will keep a watch- ful eye upon the general conference of all refiners scheduled to be held in Kansas City early this week. The 25 operators who met in conference here expressed full confidence that all the remaining refiners will gladly ofn with them in shutting down. "We are not disposed to interfere If it can be clearly shown that tbe motive of the refiners is not to raise lrlces," said Assistant District Attor- ney Veisl "The charge is vemg broadcast, however, that a price boost is the underlying purpose of this shut- down plan, and if our Investigation warrants such action, the facts will be laid before a grand jury." The refiners defend their action on the basis that an unprecedented sur plus of gasoline and crude oil exists, t potnting to recnt enormous yields in California, fields.
