t.'.nization of the department by the

Problem Now Up
To City Residents
Lincoln, April 25. "No town resi
dent has the right to bemoan high
prices for foodstuffs while a single
city lot remains unfilled; while no
preparation is made for preserving
food for winter, and while no com
mon meeting place is provided where
producers may sell direct to consum
ers." This is the statement of Prof. H. C.
Filley, of the farm management de
partment of the University of Ne
braska, who declares that the problem
of lowering the cost of living and in
creasing the supply of food of the
country is "up to the city man" rather
than the American farmer.
Prof. Filley points out that the
farmer has been producing to tha
limit set by available land, available
labor, and the probable price products
will bring. "Farm labor has been so
scarce that the whole family must
work early and late during the grow
ing season," says he. "The next move
is up to the city man."
Three ways city folks can do their
bit" in agricultural production, are
pointed out by Prof. Filley. Members
of the city family have time to spare
for gardening, while the lanners
family has little time for intensive
culture. The farmer cannot let a
four-horse team stand idle to pick
beans and onions.
Easy distribution of farm products
through municipal markets, box car
selling, etc., as a means of "direct to
the consumer" selling, is a second
way city folks can reduceliving costs,
according to Prof. Filley.
Preservation of food in the season
of plenty for use in the season of
scarcity is the third means advocated
foT remedying the food shortage. The
country housewife does a great deal
of canning, and her city cousin must
follow, as far as possible.
