Price Guaranty For
'Farmer of the United States, of
ten warned against a "step toward
Socialism," do not object to the Social
ism involved in the governmental
guarantee of parity prices.
The farmers of Perquimans County,
along with the other agricultural
workers in the United States, should
not overlook the incessant propaganda
that is being directed against the
parity program in industrial centers.
Labor leaders, we must admit, have
developed a better understanding of
the community of interests between
farmers and laborers and are not as
vociferous in their criticism of food
prices as are the people who dwell in
the metropolitan areas.
Parity, as agriculturists understand,
is an attempt to give to the agri
cultural nortion of our population a
fair part of the nation's income. With
food for American families being a
hnmp rwveBsitv. the safety of the na
tion would be endangered if there
happened to be, at any time, insuf
ficient food for the millions of fami-
: lies in the United States.
' Recognizing; this fact, the Govern-
' mpnt has afctwmnbed to set uP a ratio
to give to fanners a fair share of the
nation's income. It was recognized
that the growers of food, feed and
fiber were unorganized and that they
often the, victim of speculators.
' The growing' "if perishable crops -is a
; venture in Itself ana we weii-oeing oi
! farmers' families should not depend
; upon the vagaries of a speculative
' When World War II began, the
Government of the United States urg
ed the farmers of this country to pro-
! duce in abundance and guaranteed
certain prices for certain products.
1 The sruarantee was made effective for
period to last until alter tne war
ended. Thus, the farmers of the na-
tion were put on their mettle to pro
r duce i abundance, with the guaran
l tee that if they gave to the nation
" a surplus of food, they would not suf
fer from a" glut on the market. It was
a fair proposition and no more than
what the Government gave to the in--
dustrialists who manufactured the
necessities of warfare.
The reader, should not overlook
fthe fact that the manufacturers of
i this country respond to the emergency
of war solely because the Government
buys their products at a profit. It
lis well known that industrialists
make abnormal Iprof its during an
emergency connected with 'war. To
f suggest that it is improper, under
, these circumstances, for the Govern
i ment to assure farmers that they will
not be penalized for producing abund-
antly, is somewhat far-fetched.
