APPLETON POST-CRESCENT CITY EDITION SIXTEEN PAGES K DAILY POST EHTABMSHKO IMS KVBM.VO CRESCENT ESTABLISHED 1890 FIVE O'CLOCK APPLETON, WISCONSIN, FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1923 FULL LKASKI) WIKB bKRVICE OF THE AS-SOCI.VTIiD I'ltESS PRICE THREE CENTS Prices Of Comniodities Are 000 Times Higher Than Pre-war Averages By Associated Press of the most menacing effects of the collapse of the mark is asserting itself In the .growlnc de- rangement of the food situation In greater Berlin. This is ascribed di- rectly to the depleted stocks, the with- drawal of available stores, and price juggling by merchants seeking to protect themselves against the com- plete-extinction of the mar1.', as cur- rency, and their resultant inability to procure fresh stocks. Tea. coffee, nee. and other products of the tropics aro already disappear- ing, and there is also a pronounced shortage of potatoes, duo to the be- lated harvest and the fact that the government has been sending heavy shipments into the Ruhr and Rhine- land. The municipality of Greater Berlin has officially petitioned the federal government to take immediate steps to safeguard and reorganize city's food supply and inaugurate a. system of price control. The heads of the municipality and the labor loaders ar- ranged to discuss the situation with Chancellor Cuno and the federal food controller Saturday. This week's price index shows food prices to be times the pre-war averages. Farmers Ask Cooperation Of City Folks To Solve Their Problems Inability to arrive at an accurate cost of production so that the farmer may receive a return for his labor and investment in proportion to that of other lines of business Is one of the basic problems that confront the rural man today. This fact was brought out by the ?roup of Appleton business men who held their first get- together supper and meeting with farmers of the county at the Emory Meltz farm, town of Greenville. Thurs- day evening. The Appleton chamber of commerce delegation learned that the farmer has serious problems to face, and the group of agricultural men found through the discuss-ions that the city business man. the merchant, jobber or manufacturer, airo has his worries lue of rubbing: el- of one another's and losses. The vji bows and learninc problems was so evident from this new meeting idea that those attend- ing voted to hold another one in two weeks. The invitation of Harry Lep- pla was accepted, and the Catherine will be held at his farm. Hugh G. Corbett. secretary of the chamber. acted as chairman. There was an attendance of ap- proximately 150, with the representa- tion of chamber r.f commerce mem- bers and farmers about equally divid- ed. Wives of many of the men were present. Supper wjs served in cafe- teria style on the Meltz lawn. The guests were provided wich a liberal supply of Guernsr-y milk and the chamber of commerce furnished ice cream. FAR.IIKRS" PROBLEMS A number of factors stand in the way of the financial success of the farmer, the discussions showed. The increase in the amount he receives for his produce as compared to the year 1913 is far below the rise in prices obtained by the rnnimfacturer. it was said. The labor problem also is diffi- cult to solve because of the competi- tion of higher paid city employment, and this has helped to keep down value of farms and has tended to dis- courage many farmers. Mr. Corbett explained that this meeting was called so that the busj. ness men of Appleton could determine If there was any way in which thev could be helpful in making farming more prosperous, and in that way helping the interests of merchants and city folks. He told of the recent gathering in Milwaukee, called by association of commerce there and said that conference seemed of such value that a similar one was called-locally. He called on W. G. Jamison, Harry Leppla. Herman Ihde of Xcenali. and Louis Sorcnson of Larsen. farmers who were at the Milwaukee meeting, to give talks. Mr. thde is a member of the state committee appointed at Mil- waukee to study remedies for the Wisconsin Mtuation. JAMISON LEARNED MUCH Mr. Jamison declared that the Mil- waukee meeting had taught him many things, among them a realization that the railroads, the manufacturers and others had to face reverses the same as the farmer. He mentioned charts which showed that the farmer was getting 40 per cent more for his pro- ducts than in tho normal year of 1913. but that the manufactured goods were 72 per cent higher. It is the. gap be- tween these two that helps to account for the plight in which the farmer finds himself today. It is too big a discrepancy altogether, he said. More economical production is nec- essary on the farm. Mr. Ihdo said, but the farmer is at a disadvantage in bringing this about because- he hap no accurately worked out sot of tables such as is found In manufacturing and retailing. Conditions are different on various farms and a cost basis therefore Is hard to determine. Farm- ers must go ahead and produce wheth- er times are good or bad. he said, but tho manufcaturer can shut down his plant if hp chooses and stop produc- tion until things right themselves. Other lines of business, said Ihde. have their central associations that are a big factor in selling, and he believe.- that eventually the farm- ers must come to the same course. He is caper to see more get-together meetings where the city man and the farmer may put their feet under tho samp table and talk things over wlui- out getting excited. NEED CITY SUPPORT Farmors ought to obtain for their business the information that the mer chant and manufacturer now have, declared Mr. Sorenson in his talk. He also told of the benefits he derived from the Milwaukee meeting and urged further conferences. Farmers arc not getting the return even of common labor nowadys. he said.
