Farmers and the War. Important Meeting at Brecon. COUNTY MEMBER AMONG SPEAKERS. In our advertising columns there is an announcement of a most important meeting to be held at the Town Hall, Brecon, on Friday, March 9th, at 2 p.m., when amongst others the County Member will speak. Farmers should make it a point to attend this meet- ing in order that they may know what is expected of them in these trying days. The Prime Minister has stated that the plough is our hope, and in order to en- courage more corn growing, which is a matter of ur- gent importance, the Government has guaranteed mini- mum prices for cereals for five years. The meeting is held under the auspices of the Execu- tive Committee of the Breconshire War Agricultural Committee, which is the body appointed to carry out the wishes of the Government in the matter of tillage. It has tremendous powers, but rather than exercising them immediately, meetings are arranged in the county to enable farmers to obtain full information as to its constitution and powers. This meeting will afford an opportunity to all farm- ers to know the wishes of the Government in the vital matter of food production, and it is hoped that they will attend in large numbers. The planting season is upon us, atid if we neglect this spring we might have to face very dark days before the end of the present year in the matter of food supplies,
