Doctors Liable For Military Call Doctors and dentists, since July 1, are liable for military service under the Selective Service law in the same way as other registrants — ending the special liability of these professional groups which has been in effect since 1950, Colonel Glenn R. Bowls, State Director of Selective Service for Iowa, said today. The former "Doctor Draft" act. physicians and dentists were liable for service at older ages than other registrants —- at one time up to age 50. Under the new law, the upper limit of the THIS WEEK —In Washington Clinton Davidson Current eflorls to destroy the farm program reminds us of the story about the farmer who burned his barn to get rid of the rats. • Almost everyone, It seems U "against" the present farm program. Few farmers like It, the Secretary of Agriculture doesn't like It, and many city critics want to do away with It entirely. There are legitimate complaints against the farm program as now drawn by Congress and operated by the Department of Agriculture. There can be no denying thnt the program has many faults. It is costly. Congress since 1950 haa appropriated nearly $20 billion to operate a program that Includes large payments W) farmers and huge subsidies for export of surpluses. The program has not stopped orer-productlon and the build-up of surpluses. It has not halted the 7-year decline In farm prices and income. It has put the government deeply Into the business of managing both farming and farmers. There are hundreds of farm laws and more than 100 thousand government agents supervising farm production and marketings. But, to repeal nil farm program laws to get rid of the faults makes no more sense than burning the barn to destroy the rats. That would be an admission of complete failure. The farm program has faults, but It hasn't been a complete failure. It helped farmers weather the depression 30s and prepare for the big production Increases vitally necessary in World War II and Immediately afterward. The fault la that we haven't made the necessary changes tu meet changing conditions since 1962. We have clung blindly to old programs that no longer apply to changes In production methods, and In market demand. The government, on one hand has forced reduction in crop acres, and on the other has taught farmers how to produce more per acre. It has supported prices of some products, and not others. It has paid farmers for not farming as well as they had been taught how. The problem now is how to strengthen the farm program and tlons, not repeal* 1>i~Mr'Tatrnr "fflAVi. To do so would bankrupt, most farmers without helping city consumers. Merchants who buy from and sell to farmers could not survive. There seems to be a widespread smear campaign aimed at convincing the country that (l) farmers are getting rich oft the government; and that (2) consumes pay twice for their food, once in the market and again on their tax bill. The facts are: Farmers' income Averages less than half of the average city worker's; farm Income la down 33% in Ave years, but city Income Is up 21c;.; farm income per hour averages lot, but factory workers earn an average of $1.95 an hour. The farm program has bene­ fitted city consumers far more than It has farmers. It hah encouraged abundant production, resulting in a 22% decrease in farm selling prices since 1952, despite a 17% Increase in farm operating costs. .Consumers, according to the Department of Labor, pay less lor their food than in 1052. Middlemen have increased their cluu-gcs by 20%.
