For the past year, the farmers of our country have been called upon to produce the largest crops in our history. As one official of the United States Department of Agriculture has stated, "This is really a remarkable goal in view of the fact that our farm production in nine out of the last twelve years has either set a new record for production or has equalled the record then existing." Agricultural production is as essential in our present mobilization effort as it was in World War II. It is, therefore, imperative that this nation increase its supplies of agricultural products to the utmost if we are to satisfy the urgent needs of our soldiers and sailors, our civilians, and of other free nations which have joined with us in a common struggle against oppression and tryanny.
