REACHING HEIGHT Way to Assist Farming Is to Develop Factories Says Davidson IOWA CITY April 3 J B Davidson of Iowa State college believes the present is but the be ginning of a period of the most rap id development of engineering methods in agriculture in the worlds history He also feels that perhaps the best way to assist ag riculture is to develop manufactur ing thus relieving the congestion on the farms and providing a market for food stuffs local Professor Davidson made public bis views in an address prepared for the Iowa Power and Industrial con ference here today He said Iowa has a larger investment in farm machinery than any other state In the union There is much reason to believe Professor Davidson declared that Iowa wilt continue to consume farm machinery at even a greater rate in the future than in the past Iowa farmers are progressive They are Intelligent and Iowa agriculture state offers certain definite and im portant advantages The develop ment should be encouraged Iowa has within its borders the three great agents in industrial success Arthur Huntingdon of Ce dar Rapids told the conference The three factors he said are power factory management and sales There is not a county or town In the state Huntington said which ia not supplied with the first of these great essentials at prices which will permit of world compet tion and no state is producing bet ter industrial managers than are coming from our technical schools and are being trained under our good factory executives As sales men her sons rank high The electric industry has been trying for the past five years to do for agriculture what has been done for the manufacturing industry h said It is cooperating with the de partment of agriculture farmer organizations and Iowa State co lege ia determining how electri power may be used to increase th productiveness for man on the farm and lower the cost of production Power Is Important Power he said is one of th most important factors in the com mercial development of any nation The efficiency with which power 1 used either in the production of raw material or the transforming of raw material into commodities of great er value is one

STRAITS Production at Lowest Ebb in 36 Years Says President IOWA CITY April op erators miners and consumers co operate to bring the industry up from its low ebb the Iowa coal min ing industry virtually will be de stroyed George Heaps Jr presi dent of the Iowa Coal Operators as sociatipn said at the Iowa power and industrial conference which opened at the University of Iowa Tuesday HERE AND THERE Miscellaneous Briefs From 100 GlobeGazette Minnesota Coal production in Iowa is at its lowest point in 36 years and in 1927 and 1928 only slightly more than 3000000 tons were mined in the state The record of 9049806 tons was made in 1917 Heaps declared Postwar cutting of wages in the nonunion fields of the east and south which enable those mines to ship coal to Iowa cheaply and so win in competition with the states product is one of the chief reason for the serious situation Other Jiven by Mr Heaps include the men ace of the huge production of fue oil and the general falling off in de mand for coal due partly to use o more efficient methods of firing In the past six years the numbe of men employed in Iowa mines has declined from about 13000 to 5000 This situation is general thruout th country Heaps declared but no vhere can it be compared to the oss in Iowa The starting1 point in aiding the ndustry Is for institutions using iublic money to purchase Iowa coal e said This already has been done y the state board of control anc he present legislature is formulat nga bill for special transportation atcs for the states coal by the tractors Conditions Are Favorable There seems to
