'The ratio of the index number of Wisconsin milk prices to the revioed United

GAverage of estimated values, 1912-14 = 100.
ITheseindex numbers are based on retailpricem paid by farmers for commodities
used in living and production, reported quarterly for March, June, September,
and December, revWsed.
Indexes for other months are interpolations from the quarterly data.

General advances in the prices of
most agricultural produtcts during Feb-
ritary brouglht the level of farm prod-
uct prices for tHI, natiot, to 76 percent
of the pre-Nvat average, a gain of 6
points from  Jattuary.  The February
price level is the highest for any month
sincee July 1933.
The advance itt farm    prices from
January to February was greater than
th(e advance in prices paid by farnmers,
resulting in an increase in the ex-
change value of farm products from 60
percent of pre-war in January to 64
percent in December.
A comparison of the Wisconsin and
United States index numbers for Feb-
ruary indicates a margin of only 1
poitit in favor of Wisconsin. In Janu-
ary and December the two indexes were
eqtal. These are the first months since
in 1925 that the farm price level in
Wisconsin has not been substantially
higher than that for the United States.

CHAS. RAQUET
It in with regret that we learn
of the denthm of Mr. Vitus E.
Wlegert and Mr. Chain. Rnquet,

County. Mr. Raquet ha ecooper-
ated with the Department of Ag-
riculture since 1916 and Mr. Wie-
gert since 1919, records which
are Indeed commendable.    The
Wlisconsin Crop iteportluig Serv-
iee extends sincere synuppathy to
the families of these men.
