Twrl rged for at the ate at t < ! word. Cash to under FARM INCOME AND PARITY I The IMC income of American farm em is estimated to be higher than ever before in the history of the na tion, topping the previous high of IMC by more than one billion dol The expert calculator* figure that the farmers of this nation had gross receipts of more than -28,000,00<M>00, which is about twice aa much m they had in pre-war years. It is interesting to note that moat of the statistics that come to publie notice, in regard to the income of farmers, relate to their gross re ceipts. It is more difficult to ascer tain the net, and practically impossi ble to figure the avenge return on the invented capital of agricultural ists. It has been apparent, however, for many years, that the formers of the United States, as a clar \ do not re reive a share of the national income in proportion with that received by other groups.' This fact is the basis of the parity payments. Parity is a formula designed to give to farmers the same percentage of the national income that they enjoyed in selected base yean. It should be recognized that the years selected for the purpose, when economists consider that there was a normal economic balance in tbp na tion, did not give the farmers of the nation anything like a proportionate part of the national income upon a per capita basis. Inasmuch as a sound agriculture is vital to the wel fare of any' nation, it is entirely proper that government, as far as possible, should take action to g^ve farmers a fair proportion of the na tional income. A court ruled that a man was ac$ insane because he married 15 times ? he's just a glutton for punishment.
