Position of Jews on Farms in America Better Than That of City Jews

The position of the Jewish farmers in the United States is much better than that of many city Jews, according to the reports presented to the annual Convention of Jewish Farmers held yesterday at the Irving Plaza Hall.

More than 100 delegates from Jewish farm districts in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Ohio attended the Convention which was called by the Jewish Agricultural Society.

The discussion turned on the problems of the farmers. Co-operative marketing was urged by many of the speakers as a more productive means of disposing of farm products.

The Convention decided to request the Federal Agricultural Bank to extend credits to Jewish farmers who have small poultry farms.
