trying to struggle along at my

support my family.' I pay many
taxes, local, state and federal.
Until recently I did not object,
but now, I am beginning to get
mad and resent every cent I
pay in taxes. I have come to
this state of mirid’Sftcr reading
about the farm support program.
It seems to me that the general i

tides have been written about
the farm problem, but nothing
has actually been done about it
other than to increase the hand
out each year. Briefly the farm
aid program came~*abou’. during
the depression to hetjSf the farm
er and to equalize the cost of
what tlie farmed had to pay for
his machinery and other items,
and what he received far his
crops on an open market. Both
political parties are responsible:
it was started in a Democratic
administration and continued on
through several different" admin
istrations of government. The
farm belt, which at one time
was solidly Republican, is now
solidly Democratic, and the
Democrats are going to do
everything in their power to
keep it that way. In essence,
the general TAXPAYER, regard
less of party, is paying to keep
the existing political machine in
power. The FARM BLOC is the
Strongest bloc in Congress, and
forces through the farm uro
grams regardless of tho general
TAXPAYER, which, in effect, is
buying the election.
Statistics have become so
common in illustrating a given
point, that people just accept
them without realizing their
meaning or significance. How
ever. let us use a few statistics.
It is estimated, that roughly,
since the beginning of the farm
aid program, it has cost the
TAXPAYER between TWENTY
AND THIRTY BILLION dollars.
There is now in storage surplus
-efSps at an estimated value of
•NINE BILLION dollars. Stor
age charges for this surplus are
(costing the TAXPAYER ONE
.AND ONE-HALF MILLION dol-j
j lars a day. which does not in
-1 elude interest. transportation
j and other administrative costs:
the total overall storage charg
es for the year ending June,
1960 will be over ONE BILLION
dollars. The overall costs of
the farm program for the same
year will be approximately
SEVEN BILLION dollars, taken
from the TAXPAYER'S pockets.
Let us quote a few outstanding
factors in this program. First,
let us point out that the farm
er. when operating his farm, is
no longer judging the market
for his produce, as he did in the;
past, but is planting with the
idea of getting the most he cam
from the Government, the TAX
PAYER. Last year, when the I
| support price for corn was re-j
! duct'd from $11.77 per bushel to!
I $1.40 per bushel, the farmer just
planted more acreage in corn,
with the result that we had our
greatest bumper crop in our en-l
lire history The storage eharg-!
Ics for this bumper crop is ter
rific. Professor Richards, of
| lowa State College, has testi
. t ied that in lowa alone, the
| warehousemen are leaking a
■ profit of from 105"; to 167ri per
year. One farmer, in addition
to operating his large farm, has
(gone into the warehousing busi
j nesss and receives FIFTEEN
’ MILLION dollars per year rent.
!He makes a profit in several
’ ways. He makes a profit on

through a Government _agency
at 90 r c of his estimated costs.
Os course, he overestimates his
costs, so that when he receives
his mortgage money, he already
has ?t profit, for actually his
mortgage is in excess of his
costs. The rent he receives for
storing surplus crops, includes
six per cent on his over estimat
ed casts, amortization of the
loan and a profit for himself, sc
that when the mortgage is paid
off. the warehouses will have
cost him nothing and he will
have made a profit. Senator
Williams, of Delaware, has stat
ed that 250 cotton growers re

operator receiving over ONE

SEVEN MILLION dollars, with
one family alone receiving ONE
HUNDRED AND SIXTY FTVE
THOUSAND dollars, for keeping
land out of cultivation that nev
er was and never will be in cul
tivation. This program is un
moral, immoral and amoral. At
one time the farmer was look
ed upon as having high charac
ter of independence, but he, has
now become a fawning parasite
looking foh something for noth
ing at the expense of the gen
eral TAXPAYER. In such a
huge program, it can be stated
that undoubtedly there is a
great deal of graft, corruption
and downright fraud. This rs
the result of the government in
terfering with the natural eco- 1 ,
nomic forces of natural compe-j
tition. which always lead to fail- i
ure and bankruptcy, as has hap
pened in Germany, Italy, ancient
Greece, and to some extent
France. If something is not
done we will face bankruptcy,
which means dictator control of
the county. What you can do
is to write to your Congressman!
and Senator and express your
feelings out loud that you do
not want them to vote for any
more farm subsidies at your ex
pense. You may rest assured
that the farm program is going
to be one of the hot issues in
the coming Presidential cam
paign, and candidates that offer
the most at. the expense of the
TAXPAYER, will be elected un
less you protest.
Dear Three P s:
My son will graduate from
high school with fairly good
marks. He is interested in go
ing to college and we are won
dering what we can do to help
him. Neither my husband nor
I are college graduates.
You raise a very interesting,
question, one which all parents i
should consider with children j
contemplating going to college, j
Practically twenty-five to thirty I
percent of freshmen classes 1
flunk out in the first or second I
term of college. One of the big
problems is that of adjusting ■
oneself to being away from j
home. otherwise known as
homesickness. The other big |
problem is that of being on one's
own. There is no discipline to
see that a student does his work,
and without this discipline the
student is apt to drift off into
the pleasurable side of college
life and neglect his studies. He
is on his own, and where he
does not apply himself he will,
fail where if he had applied j
himseflf he would have made
good. Discuss these two aspects |

paying for it. It warps all sense
of true values. ;
Hard on the heels .of these
present-day evils come narcotics
and political corruption. The,
former deaden the natural func-l
tioris of the mind and body, rob
bing men of their God-given
privilege of response to that
which is holy. They kill the*
best in the life which God has
entrusted to humanity. The lat-j
ter has marked • our generation
with a general lowering of mor
al standards. At no point is
the tragedy more in evidence
than in the numerous charges
of dishonesty in political life.
A recent survey revealed that
charges against public officials
were being pressed in nineteen!
states during 1958. The destruc-,
tive influence of these condi-,
tions upon the Christian faith is
evident when we observe the
complacency of the public in ac
cepting dishonesty as necessary,
or even as clever. Dishonesty in
government reflects the moral
collapse of the people who en
dure such practices. It flaunts
t.he Christian gospel. It exalts
the pagan god of money. It
scorns faith and ridicules the]
laws of God.

ods in Ephesus to undermine the
claims of Christ upon the lives
of people. He made appeal
