"One of the amazing things a

program she could possibly be
talking about is that Involving
pork, and that program, as now
shaping up, calls for material in
creases in production.
"And as for the curtailment pre

potato land has yet been affected
by any such program, for the sim

"The complaint about the price
of potatoes, Ja. difficult to under
stand. With potato growers get
ting around 60 cents a bushel as
they have for two years now, ths
price to the farmer is the lowest
in many years. Compare it, for in
stance, with $1.31 a bushel in 1929
or $1.66 in 1925. It seems grotes
quely inaccurate to talk about the
high price of potatoes when con
sumers are paying about a cent
and one half a pound, and farmers
are getting less than a cent a lb.
In 1930, for example, consumers
paid 3.6 cents a pound. I Just
don't believe that consumers want
bargain foodstuffs when they know

"It is so easy to forget what
(Continued Kiom Front Paga)
prices were a few yeaia ago. I;
seems to surprise many people to
learn that food prices today arc
considerably below the 1929 lovel.
"If facts about prices, and about
processing Uxe3, arc frequently
overlooked, facts about the con
duct of the various adjustment
programs are even more commonly
misconstrued. One favorite story
is that the farmers, at the direc
tion of the AAA, plow under corn
and burn their wheat. Farmers
know that this simply isn't true,
but those city people who don't
know farmers and fai-m practices
may often be fooled.
"Not long ago certain metropo
litan newspapers showed a picUire
of a wheat stack ' burning on a
Missouri farm, and attribute 1 Ui.!
burning to the AAA. The facta in
the case were as follows: 'ihia
farmer, under contract witis tlu
AAA, had more acres in w.ns
than his contract called for.
"The local farmers' committor
urged him to dispose of the e::c. oj
wheat by pasturing it, or later by
cutting it for use as hay. The lo
cal committee thoroughly under
stood that the AAA has never or
dered any wheat burned, disap
proves of it, and invariably offda
farmers producing In excess of
contract quotas the privilege of
canceling their agreements with
thj Government without any pen
alty except the loss of benefit pay
ments. When this farmer allowed
his excess wheat sfcreage to ripen,
the committee notified him h?
might donate it to charity. Instead
be burned it, and a sensational pic
ture and newspaper story resulted.

is that they make it all but Impos
