FQR THE SAKE OF EGONC)MIC EQUALITY IN THE MIDWEST VOTE DEMOCRATIC Senator John Kennedy's Des Moines Statement With Regard To Agriculture I The Republican policy of collapsing farm income does not benefit farmers, or consumers, or taxpayers. It benefits only those powerful interests who benefit from the farmer's adversity — the same interests who kept Mr Benson in his job,—the same interests that dictated this year's Republican'farm platform. That platform calls for "price supports, best fitted to specific commodities." It doesn't say who decides—it doesn't say at what level- end it doesn't say best for whom. The Republican leadership has already demonstrated that they don't mean what's best for the farmer. The Democratic platform, on the other hand, spells out what we will do to reverse the decline in farm income, and to meet our responsibilities to our farmers, our consumers and our taxpayers, to all America and to a hungry and troubled world. Full Parity That .platform pledges, in unmistakable language "positive action to raise farm income to full parity of income levels and to 'preserve family farming as a way of life," It means that farmers shall receive returns for their labor,, for their managerial , skills, and for their investment which are equal to the returns received for comparable human talents and resources in pther types of enterprise. This is the strongest pledge ever given to the ' farmers of America by any political party in history. I stand behind that pledge, and I intend to malt* good on U, begin' ning next January. I do not say the job will be easy. There are no new or magical solutions. Mr Nixon's talk about a "massive land retirement" plan with "indemnity payments" is no different than the 1956 "acreage reserve" plan of Ezra, Taft. Benson. More empty slogans and wishfuj thinking .will not solve the problem. . .. -•• People are being driven out of agriculture at , a fantastic -rate. • The young people leave,, the farm and never come back. The families hit by failure, merger or foreclosure move to the city, regardless of whether the city has jobs or homes. Our small towns are being badly hurt — so are their churches and schools and businessmen — and so is . the whole'United States. It would be nice to believe, as the Republicans .believe, that migration off the farm will solve the problem of surpluses. But the, facts of the matter are that, during these Ipst eight .years when millions'have been.leaving the farp, our agricultural production has actually in• creased,at a faster rate than our total population. Costly surpluses Mr Benson has acquired surpluses in storage six times as high as the 1952 level — surpluses, which are costly to the taxpayer, frustrating to the world's hungry people and depressing in their effect on farm prices. Instead of population pressing on food supplies, as English economist Thomas Malthus and others predicted, food supplies in this country are now pressing on the population. It would also be nice to . believe, as the Republicans believe, that as farm prices ' fall, consumers will buy mp.re food and eat up the surplus. But it hasn't worked that way. Food prices have not fallen. We are, on the whole, an affluent, well-fed people. Our stomachs can expand only so far. It takes a 20 per cent drop in farm prices to move 2 per cent more food into consumption.. And even then, the surpluses would not be going to where they are really needed—to the underfed, the un- r employed, the overlooked— to the families forced to get • by oh less than 20 dollars a month worth of surplus flour, rice and cbrnmeal, with some occasional dried : ^ eggs,, lard and . skimmed milk. At the same time, there are other revolutions going . on around the world—populations growing faster than food supplies—new nations in need of assistance-—underdeveloped nations need of food for capital. These are fast-changing fast-moving times. The Republican Party is, as it always has been, the party . of the status quo—and today in agriculture there can be no status quo. In short, timid and. temporary measures will nbt do. The Benson-Nixon-Dirksen • philospphy will not do, Four more years of decline and disaster will not do. We must harness "these revolutions. We must ride" these waves of change. We . must learn to manage our abundance—to bring the . great productive capacity of American agriculture into . balance with totaj needs at home and abroad, at prices that will yield to our farmers a fair return on their capital and labor. . Not Radical Goal That is not a radical goal —or an impossible one. Nor does it treat the farmer any differently from anyone else. It may take hard work—it may mean a difficult transition—it may require 'tough decisions and many "complaints. But the job can be done—and I pledge every effort of mind and heart to' do it. , I wpuld rather be accused of breaking precedents —• than breaking promises. I am here today to learn. It is my intention to spell out programs throughout this fall, they will offer no special privileges. They will help no segjnent .of the American economy at the expense of another. They will riot satisfy ^very- one—they will not reflect the wishes of any one jjroup —but they will reflect what I think is right. And they will live up to the, strpngest farm platform in American " "political history. Robert E.

Usually, a lot of these are of the three-cornered variety, but (here are also changes in the family's habits. You can't go out anymore without first assuring that the newest member will be cared for; you have to alter your grocery orders with special food for the little one; and no longer can you lay yourself down, at night and be sure sleep will be unbroken until morning. * * * WE HAVE A NEW ADDITION TO our family. She's plump, sweet, cuddly and darling, arid the whole family loves her already. But she sure adds to the confusion around here. In some ways she's more trouble than any of the children were when they were babies, but we are stuck with hei\now, and nobody wants'to get rid of her. * * * ,. ; -% iV/iiV"."^' WE HAD QUITE A TIME SELECTING a name .for this unplanned addition. We thought of Clementine, Hulda, artdJlWz ariA'Father even suggested, half .seriously, that we call her Weiner, Jr> But the kids objected. The memory of Weiner, Sr. is still' quite sacred •to them. Joanie Post came over to offer congratulations and to view the littlest one, and she sajd, "Why don't you call her Gidget?" It means girl midget and its after a character in a story and movie by one of my favorite authors, Max Schulman. So, that's what we call « our new Dachshund puppy! ..Wi'-"' * * * THE OTHER KIDS WERE SEVERAL years old before they had little friends in to stay overnight with them. Not so, with Gidget. Kendra Seely bought one of her little mates, a boy dog named, Toby, and when the Seelys went away for a few days, Gidget had a house guest. He brought along his own food, and bed box, but , both were soon ignored. Toby and Gidget insisted''on eating from the same bowl and sleeping cuddled together in the same box. * * - * • , TOBY AND GIDGET ROMPED TOGETHER. Lots of the time, they fought, nipping at each other's ears, and growling with all the awful ferocity seven week old' puppies can manage. Then they'd plop down, utterly exhausted, and sleep curled around each others' necks. Minutes later, they'd be up and fighting again. One day they, got hold of a piece of elastic, one on each end. They tugged, and ' growled, and stretched the stuff. Finally, the elastic snapped, hit one of them, on the nose, tmd they both yipped and fled under the davenport. .' * . * * , NEITHER GIDGET NOR TOBY are housebroken as yet. Anybody who has ever had a puppy knows this can be quite a problem. When there are two puppies around, this problem is at least doubled, i However, it worked out quite well for the, dogs, because much of the time, we couldn't tell which pup had committed the misdemeanor, so we couldn't spank either one of them. It seems to me there's been quite a bit of progress in the housebreaking department, but it still isn't safe to go around our house barefoot. * * * TOBY WENT ,HOME LAST NIGHT and Gidget is desolate. She would drink only, milk today, and wouldn't touch her dog food with nobody ; around to fight with over it. She keeps looking under the davenport for him, arid' somehow the zest of chewing on theinmutual • Portland Twp.

Reports from .Toby's .side of the ''neighborhood are that he whined most of last night, presumably because he missed Gidget.

And Gidget will probably use up most of that. * ,* , * * TOMORROW 'IS THE DAY THAT-many parents will sit down and meditate on the great debt of gratitude -we owe to one of our ,most remarkable institutions—school. Right after my second cup of coffee, I'm going to breathe a great big sigh. I love my kids, and I enjoy their company, but it will certainly be wonderful to, have the radio, with its ponstant rock-and-roll "music" turned off, and it will also be nice for the kids to know the answer to "What can I do now?" without having to ask Mamma. WHEN I SENT OUR OLDEST. Bill, off to kindergarten, I must have been a hard-hearted Mamma because I didn't shed a single tear about "my baby" leaving me to go to school. It was the same way when his sisters started. They were ready for the big adventure of learning.and I was thrilled with them over it. But this year, I confess, I'm a little more weepy. This same Bill, who, it seems to me only yesterday went off to Mrs Laird's kindergarten, will be a high school senior! Any parent knows wfren a youngster leaves high school, whether he goes to college, a job or the service, you don't have him around much anymore. I'm starting to miss our son already! *' * *, MY MOTHER, MRS HAROLD HOBSON, isn't going to be able to go near the high school building this year without running into ut least one of her grandchildren. Our Bill and Denny Waller will be seniors; Tom Waller, Dick Pratt and Bob Pratt Sophomores; Mary Ann Sigsbee and Lany Pratt, freshmen; and John Pratt, a seventh grader. With two already graduated, and five more coming up, don't you think she should be AHS Grandma? Our fairly-new Grandpa, Harold, is very conscientious about trying to attend every vent with which the kids are connected. I predict he has a very busy several years in store for him. * * » OUR CUCUMBERS IN THE GARDEN haven't produced a single cuke us yet, but with the corn torn down, and fertilizer applied, and some very frequent waterings, we still have hope. A friend guve us some cukes and I have a very few pickles made, but I plan to make more. * * '* FRANCES WIESE CALLED ME with this good recipe for sliced sweet dills. Father sampled them and said they were excellent. Frances got the recipe from Mrs George Ricke of Wesley and she thinks it might be one from the Duncan Ladies Cook Book. Anyway, it's this week's recipe. 1 rounding gallon of sliced cucumbers 3 cups vinegar 3 cups sugar 2 tabsp. mustard seed 2 tabsp. dill seed 2 tabsp. salt. Put all together in a kettle. Simmer until clear, about 15 minutes. Can hot, but do not boil. You can eat them almost immediately upon canning them, without waiting like you do for ordinary dills. —GRACE. with her daughter, Mrs Forbus Stiltz, in Livermore while Mrs Barrett and Mrs Olson visited relatives and friends at Humboldt.

Wool Incentive Is 62c Pound A shown wool incentive price of 62 cents per pound and a mohair support price of 73 cents per pound have recently been announced by the Department of A|riculture for the 1961 marketing year which begins April 1, 1961.
