DOWNING creasing, while the need for brain work is increasing. Much of this brain work is making decisions about buying and selling. Farmers of today must buy and sell a lot more things than did farmers of, say,: 40 years ago. And there is op- portunity for profit and danger of loss in every purchase and sale.
