THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
(One Day Nearer Victory) THURSDAY, OCTOBER g
On The Tar Heel Front
By Robert A. Erwin and Frances McKusick
Washington. The question of
who won, the President or Con
gress, was raised as the price con
trol bill went through to final pas
sage at the Capitol.
Mr. Roosevelt's supporters, want
ing left to him the power to de
termine farm prices in the light
of farm labor costs, felt they had
won the battle in the Senate. So
did the so-called Farm Bloc which
had emerged the hands down win

Lone Dost-mortems on the price
control bill are no longer in order,
charge it to farm prices. It is
said we are in danger of inflation
because of excess buying power.
This is true, but one of the means
of absorbing this excess , buying
power is a fair distribution of un
usual income throughout the coun
try.:" "Parity prices for farm pro
ducts serve a good purpose in this
distribution. Unless the farmer
shall receive parity prices, there
shall be a dangerous concentration
of excess income in a relatively few

this present controversy began.1
Briefly, there is one very tangible not seen any farm lobbyists since
result emerging irom we imvue,
and that is nationwide recognition
of the farm labor shortage and the
need to keep manpower on the
farms as well as to assure farmers

When the farm scrap was at its
height, Senator Josiah W. Bailey
issued a statement in which he de
clared "all this talk of newspaper
columnists that the farmers are
responsible for inflation is false
and uncalled for" and "the talk
that Congress is being swamped
with lobbyists representing the
farmer also is false and uncalled
"Farmers have a perfect right
to have their representatives come
up here. It strikes me as singular,
to say the least, that others come
to Washington and nothing is said.
The farmers come, and a great
racket is raised. The Thomas

the President's message to Con
gress. "There is no great amount of in

is any, no reasonable man can
If Chairman Robert L. Dough
ton of the House Ways and Means
Committee has anything to say
about it, the 1942 tax bill will come
to a final vote by about the 22nd
of this month.
Farmer Bob was vehement in
his declaration that members of
Congress must have an opportunity
to disprove charges made against
them that politics would prevent
passage of the bill before elections.
"The welfare of our country is
far more important than politics,"
declared Doughton. "I want our
people to realize that their repre
