Most Farm Homes
One of the neatest social and eco
nomic advances made in this country
during the past fifteen years has been
the rapid electrification of rural
America. It is now estimated that
'more than ninety-five per cent of the
country is covered by rural lines
which carry electricity to 4,900,000 of
the 6,200,000 occupied farms of the
This is a tremendous stride from
1923 when the first experimental
electric line project was built by the
Northern States (Power Company, in
cooperation with the Farm 'Bureau
Federation and the University of Min
'-nesota The line covered only six
miles, connecting only eighteen farms.
. Progress was rather slow for many
years but the widespread introduc
tion of alternating current, making
possible long-distance transmission,
and the development of the steam tur
bine, reducing the cost of manufactur
ing electricity, were important factors
in the trend upward farm electrifica-
: tion. , -
- The real advance, however, began
in 1935 when an executive order is
sued by (President Franklin D. Roose
velt set up the Rural Electrification
- Administration to finance, through, a
program of government loans, the ex
tension of electric Service to the rural
areas. At that time less than 750,000
American farms were receiving cen
tral station service. ' - : ;.:
' The following, year the agency iwas
made permanent and since that time
has advanced more than a billion dol
lars to borrowers to energize nearly
a million miles of power lines. About
half of the farm families now getting
electric service -are supplied by REA-
.The IKEA points out that there are
a number of ... unserved farms and
thousands of unelectrified rural non
farm dwellings, cross-roads, business
es, schools, churches and other rural
establishments. Most of them are in
"thinner" areas where sparse popu
lation, typography or economic con
ditions constitute obstacles to immedi-
ate and profitable service. !
We do not have the figures for the
fiscal year that ended last June but,
as of June 80, 1949, the borrowers
from the REA has paid back $203,
000,000, with $19,000,000 being paid
back ahead of time and there was out
standing only $976,000 in overdue pay-
t The extension service to rural areas
has had important effects upon farm
life and activity. Not only do rural
families enjoy the advantages and con
veniences of electric appliances but
farm work has been facilitated by the
use of power which conserves man
power and makes possible greater and
more economical productivity.
It should be apparent that the in
troduction of electricity to more than
4,000,000 iarm homes, not counting
the other activities served to the rural
a rears, means a tremendous market
for the manufacturers of electrical
devices and appliances. This, in turn,
means business for wholesalers and re
tailers, as well as those who serve the
electrical needs of farm customers.
Here's How Farmers
"Rather than being over-paid, farm
ers are earning less for their labor,
less for their in vestment,' and less for
. their management ability, than any
other segments of pur economy.
- These- are the words of Charles F.
Brannan, Secretary of Agriculture,
who takes the position that it would
be unfair to freeze farm prices below
the parity level or to take the parity
provisions from the Defense Produc
tion Act. -si
The Secretary, submitting figures
.to the House Agricultural Committte,
' showed that the , farmer last year
; got an average of sixty-nine cents an
hour for his labor, five per cent of
his interest and. nothing for manage
, ment , He pointed out that sixty-nine
cents was leas than the minimum wage
for most types of non-farm Jabor, that

groups in the country. .
Further supporting ids statement,
Mr Brannan presented figures to the
Committee showing that the. pay of
farm workers declined annually from
ninety-four cents an hour in 1947 "to
aixtv-mne cents last year. In the
same time the pay of manufacturing
workers rose from . one dollar ana
twenty-four cents to one dollar and
forty-six with comparable increases
for construction and retail trade work
