The farmers of the Unit^p States
have long been acquainted with the
problem of acute want in the midst
of abundance. They know thfttuieod
goes to rot for want of markets
while farmers are ruined by prte&r
which do-not return them-enough to
meet- obligations. Our cities team|
with hungry and underlclad families, j
unable to buy the farm surplus. Asj
< Senator Borah says, "This country
would have no farm problem if the
people in the cities chad enough to. eat
and to wear."
Faced with this situation, nearly
five years ago the -Government ex
perimented with the purchase of sur
plus farm commodities for distribu
tion to persons op direct, relief. Since
August, 1933, rhore ihatt ' $220,000,
000 worth of food has been distribu
ted and now the Federal Surplus Com
modities Corporation, with :$80,000,000
to spend is attracting widespread at
tention throughout the nation.
' " . ''J -A 'st <-? ? ? -"J
Recent reports indicate that " the
Federal Surplus Commodities Corpo
ration will buy up to 15,000 tons of
surplus raisins, 250,000 gallons of
maple syrup, 2^00,000- pounds of
surplus cheese, 9*000,000 hags of
flour, 500,000 cases of surplus grape
fruit, 8,000,000 bushels of apples, to
gether with eggs, potatoes and other
? ' ;; I
| The commodities will be distributed
to relief organizations in various
states which will pass theni out to
relief clients. The purpose of the
distribution is to increase consump
tion and at the same time, relieve
farm commodities of surpluses which
tend to drag prices lower.
One result of the Government's ef
fort to dispose of these surplus farm
commodities is a drive to extend the
policy into other areas. Already, it
is announced that 110,000,000 .worth
of clothing will be purchased for dis
tribution to relief-aided ^families.
However, the FSCC will confine its
activities to the farm surpluses, leav
ing to other agencies all efforts to
bring about the distribution of other
surplus commodities. The argument
is made that the FSCC, an ageney de
signed to aid farmers, cannot risk the
blame that might attach if other buy
ing programs arouse popular resent
ment. I>tV
Advocates of the FSCC policy in
sist that food and clothing are funda
mental and that the . Government
should remedy a ? situation which
leaves the people under-nourished
and ill-clad. At the same time, the
prices are far under a profit level to
?farmers and yet the purchases pre
vent market demoralization and
wbuld intensify farm distress.
Secretary of Agriculture Henry A.
Wallace is intensely interested in the
economic prospects" of the buying and
giving program. He has largely con
fined the operations of the FSCC to
bolstering commodity markets in
periods of heavy supplies that put
great pressure on prices. Experience
has shown that a relatively small
amount of support prevents a break
in prices that would mean financial
distress to large numbers of farmers.
. -vvf:' :
As an eiample of tb^wkration
[let us take up die case of butter.
[This is a basic commodity for dairy
! farmers. Its price is set on the pro
dutff exchanges.
In the past, when surplus butter
appeared, prices broke disastrously.
Now, when the price of butter gets
to about 23 cents a pound, the FSCC
is likely to begin to buy. Consequent
ly, the pressure to sell eases, the
price tends to stabilize and all dairy
farmers are protected by the activity
of the FSCC. In less than five years
the Government has purchased 90,
000,000 pounds of butter St a cost of
more than $22,000,000.
The purchasing is done to stabilize
prices, but as soon as the market im
chasing puts a floor under prices of
miscellaneous products, just as com
modity loans place-a floor under the
level of cotton, wheat and corn
Secretary Wallace argues that the
controls whieh industry, better or
ganized, already utilizes to its ad
vantage. Agriculture he says, divided
into six million small competing
units, lacks the means of voluntary
cooperation while industry, concen
3|Fm' **
I Contrasting agriculture with in
dustry, Mr. Wallace says thktfar
I raers continue to produce at a rate
[per cent lower in purchasing power
^^^^ggry, 1937. This means
? "? ? - ??"i ?
1 On the other hand, says Mr. Wal
lace, industry Axes its price and
sticks to it, sacrificing production and
jobs in the process. The Steel indus
try, he says, cut production from
ninety per cent to twenty-five per
cent of capacity, thus?*'plowing un
der" half of the worfcerg. The auto
mobile industry cut production from
one hundred to forty-five per cent
and "plowing under" vast numbers ol
workers. All industry cut produc
tioiT from" one bunded'fifteen per
cent of the 1928-25 average to sevens
ty-four per cent and "plowed underi*
millions of workers. These workers,
the Secretary of Agriculture points
.out, rapidly get on the relief rolTs
?nd;the Government has to take care
of them. In other words, under pres
ent conditions in the United] States,
the Government cares fbr the work
ers until industry needs them again*
This resume of the activities of the
FSCC is given because the agenm

few months. Farmers should know

Livestock Controls?,
I Dodder In Lespedeza
Pasturing livestock on lespedeza
fields in summer: is a good way of
?controlling dodder, or love vine, that
infests North Carolina legume fields,
said A. C. Kimrey, extension dairy
?Medalist t at State College. Dodder
is a serious menaee, especially where
lespedeza is being grown for seed.
1;^ When the animals eat this, parasite,
duced, but the lespedeza will later
produce seeds for harvest or for re
seeding anothr crop on the same
land the following year. One dodder
plant, allowed to grow, may yield 8,
000 seeds, and if harvested with the
lespedeza wiH make the legume dan
gerous to use. Under the State seed
law, dodder is classed as a noxious
The surest way'to fight this para
site iB to plant only lesj^cdeza seed I
known to be free from dodder, said
E. C. Blair, extension agronomist
This meitts that growers should not
harvest seed from fields that are
mm* on lespedeza or other plants
Every good citizen should contri
bute some of his time to the support
of worthwhile community undertak
ings. Farmville could make faster
progress if everyone volunteered to
;J?Tot every man- who praises democ
racy believes in his own doctrines.
