H. WASHBURM- Y OU read in today's paper that business and politics differ sharply over long-range plans to bring back prosperity. Business, through its research bureau the Brookings Institution, declares the solution is "greater mass production—not. mere redistribution of existing income." Governor Futrell uttera a skeptical comment which I interpret as meaning "Piffle!" And yet, because prosperity is fun.' .<s)damenlnlly n business Issue rather than a polilical one, Iho case of Ihe Crucial Test for AAA Is Hog-Corn Vote October 26 Adverse Ballot Would Throw Production Wide Open, Officials Say EVERYBODY VOTES Farmers Not Signing in Past Will Ballot With Those Who Have Signed By WILLIAM S. WHITE Associated Press Correspondent WASHINGTON—(/P)—The administration is "going lo the country" on October 26 in a nation-wide referendum to determine whether corn and hog growers want continued the adjustment program for those commodities. An adverse vote, officials say, would throw production wide open. Unlike other major crops, corn and hogs arc grown so widely that elections will be held in every state in the union. Farmers who have not participated in the adjustment program will be eligible to vote along with the contract-signers. Government sources estimate there are more than 4,500,000 .. corn and hog growers in the country. « ' "nd that more than 3.000,000 of these »c- (ntgingvd-'tn -prortartlWrori-s •com-' mcrcial scale. Fear Huge Production The referendum attended as it is by European war scares and the emerging prospccl of coincident groat new foreign markets, is frankly regarded by AAA executives as the most crucial they ever hnve held, on the theory that if farmers ever arc likely to demand heavier production this is the time. Both Secretary Wallace and AAA administrator Davis, however, have publicly exhibited concern lest farmers seek again the huge production of the World war clays—a production which Davis says brought a "moment of false prosperity and then brought 1921 and the long ghost march of the yours that led up to (he dark days of 1932 and 1933." By Secret Ballot Tliis election, upon which depends the future of a program that has poured more than $300,000,000 into farmers' pockets in rental and benefit payments, will he conducted by secret ballot, not to hi: Brookings Institution must be heard. Today's dispatch outlines the report of Dr. Harold G. Moulton, head of Brookings Institution, as follows: The 51-year-old economist declared a world without depressions can be accomplished only if the benefits of increased efficiency of both humans and machinery arc passed along to the entire people in lower commodity prices. "It should be clearly understood that a mere redistribution of the existing income of society will not accomplish the desired results," Dr. Moulton asserted. He pointed out the average income In the most prosperous year was $GG5 and the addition of incomes from investments and corporation officials' salaries added a mere $140. "jhe paramount requirement is to increase progressively the total amount of income to be divided," he said. "Only if the aggregate income of 80 million dollars a year increases to 100 biilion.', to 150 billions, to 200 billions, will it be possible to achieve the goal desired." XXX But how to Increase that income? Well, there was a little "filler" item lit the bottom of page one of yesterday's Star which you might have noticed. It conveyed astonishing information. It said: In ordinary combustion of coal, we waste 99.9 per cent of its energy. If we could burn coal completely, so that there was no wasted energy, n lump the size of a pea would take a large stcam- jhip across,,the_Atlantic and back. "Of course we "wllf* never quite bo able to do that. But we will come a whole lot nearer it than we arc doing now—not only with coal but in our use of all the world's—commodities. The great wealth of America by comparison with oilier nations was founded on just such intelligent exploitation of the goods that uncivilized people keep on using in the same manner year after year without improvement. So in the future must we look to industrial refinements for any increase in material wealth. XXX Political government determines in a measure how wealth shall be divided AFTER it is produced—but business must first produce it.
