N.P.O. Writer Says Subsidy To Others Exceeds Farm Mr. Edilor: ' Here 1 is something for business men. workers and farmers to think about! When the govern* mtnt purchases defense, material from industry, contracts' are made out that -assure a.very satisfactory profit to the producers. When food, is bought, it is done without reference to profit or loss to the farm producers. CCO farm price support losses from the beginning qf .the iarm program to January 1, 1958, wore slightly over 5 billion dollars. Mail subsidies for the 10 years from 1949 -H 19&<r were almost 0 billioh:ddliars. '<* •'. ' ., Business reednVersion p a y- ments were over 43 billion, maritime organizatibtts 3% billion and subsidies to airlines, over Ms bll- lidn. Isn't all this an, indication that the farmer better conduct his business in a- more business like way? N. F.<O. has the platt which' only needs sufficient cooperation by farmers to absolutely make it work! ' • ' ' Is N.F.O. goirtg totbe.selfisli and keep all of the gains ( to itself? May I explain this, in the w&rds of one of my good farmer friends, Halv'or.Jacobson M.Le- lahd; Iowa. Here are soffl^of the things he said iri'S letter .recent- ly published in the ftes Moines Register. Mis letter was in answer to what someone had called .theJ'N.F.O. Persian." He says: "To clarify this so called pork plan, it is but a small part of N. F. ,O.'S permanent marketing plan-which will help the farmec by living him a price that •will restore buying power, help the cMorier by giving him a better product, help the packer and processors by guaranteeing a steady flow of hogs or grain So they can plan a definite labor force ( and have a quality product) and help the laborer by providing a much greater labor demand. Perhaps the greatest benefit will be to the. small businessman Who has been hurt, almost as b,adly as the farmers 'IhVough loss p'f trade. Vfc need production cuts although in the $10.00 hog year of I95tf there'was only an 8% surplus/ Merely marketing hogs then at the 200 pound average instead of'the 228 ppuhd average they were 1 sold at -would hhye liven a H%% cut in wtelgjiUj.hd 'the consumer would have Md a tot ,less lard to trim off.' • ; W' ,A tremendous, of fort, has been made'hy rriahy Midwest farmers in planning the N.F.O. program. It shouldn't be belittled^ by someone who .is speaking from hearsay My tow* opinion of N F. 6. wasn't good either until I attended-several meetings. T^am now a member and . agree , witfi thousands of other fafmers that we should take politics out of thte farm problem and solve 11 ourselves; , w ' ' ." •„ , In six months of farmeY co- operation'we can have this problem whipped, if we put our minds to it, instead" of sitting idly by, bickering over trivialities, and being diyided by ..politician*' and the organized marketing svstent that has. taken oUr prof its t all of; Tuesday, Oct. 18, I960 Moona (Jo.) Upp** P* these years." . The N.F.O. plan is very sensible and reasonable and has benefits for every farmer as Well as many other people. Charles Eggerth Secretary, .Kossuth County N. F. O.
