Randalia Correspondent Lima Correspondent THIS WEEK —In Washington With Clinton Davidson With the farm do- bate getting into full swing in Congress thin week the name old problem — too much production — but with « new twinl iH emerging on the big iwuc. CongreHKinen from farming arena will talk about it in the cloakrooms, and off the record, but the subject is tnboo when it comes to open debate on the floor of cither tho House or Senate. Are there too many farmers? Agriculture Secretary Benson says, openly, that there arc. The American l-'nrni Bureau Federation, largest of the farm organizations, agrees with him. Price supports, surplus disposal and other farm programs are costing the government in exoess of 16 billion a year. The main objective of those programs has been (1) to k «ep farm prices from falling and (2) reduce farm production. They have done neither. The Census Bureau count* 4,500,000 farms, and the USDA figures that 2,. r >00,000 of those can produce all of the foods and fibers needed to feed and clothe this country well and have enough loft oyer to moot all export requirement*. The problem of how to do that U not a simple ono. It involves getting both farmers and farms out of production. USDA studies show that the 2,000,000 "exoess" farms make up only 0% of total land In cultivation and only 5% of total farm production. That . r >% is just about the amoiinl by which production has been exceeding .-iales in domestic and foreign markets. But that still leaves unsolved the problem of how to reduce the number of farmers and farms by 10%, Mr. Benson says lie doos not favor "forced migration" off of farmH. He says present support and subsidy programs are encouraging too many farmers to stay on the land when 'hey ought to IJO nocking employment elsewhere. He thinks that if those supports and subsidies were reduced or eliminated many would loave farms "voluntarily." With moro than 4,000,000 unemployed city workers, the job of farmers finding work in factories, mines and other industries might not be an easy one. More probably, they would simply Bwell the unemployment relief rolls. Business and professional men in i JJ... . i i i , "mall towns, who depend largely In addition to these Fayette has certain advantages* upo „ tKrmm> , OT «,etr » n oome, wouw be hard hit by any mass migration of their customers to cities. The result could be a gigantic wave of bankruptcies across the country. The main stumbling block to improving the farm price and overproduction problem is how to keep the 2,000,000 farmB which Benson thinkB should be removed from production from being absorbed by larger farmers and made even more productive. Benson thinks a "super-soil bank" to pay farmers to leave their whole farm idle may bo the solution. He is giving the idea a trial run this month in four states—Illinois, Nebraska, Maine and Tennessee— and if it looks promising he says he may ask all farmers to make the government an offer to take their farms out of production. •MUND CHURCH EVERY WEE *>" PRAY "EVERY DAY 30 JANUARY 1956 IN WHAT CAN FAYETTE TAKE PRIDE? The idea for the development commission is moving forward in a positive manner. The committee reports several constructive meetings. Delegates for attendance at the Iowa Development clinic in Des Moines are being considered and Fayette will be represented. When we begin to self our town to those interested in expanding their industries or starting new busines, we must look at it ourselves for its advantages. Then we must extoll the things in which we take pride and see if we can't find a few more. Fayette's great asset, like that of Iowa, is its people. Here in Fayette is a portion of that substantial part of America that is the mid-west. From Iowa comes more American leaders mentioned in Who's Who than any other state. From Iowa and the mid-west comes the best soldiers for our armies and the best engineers for our industries. From Fayette itself many reknowned people have" included themselves in our heritage. Many people with versatile backgrounds' and knowledge remain here today. Fayette must use Upper Iowa University as one of its greatest of assets. This institution offers culture and educational leadership to northeast Iowa. For individuals connected with new business it is a distinct advantage to have an institution of higher education to which their young folk can look forward. The area around Fayette is a rich agricultural area combined with an area of beautiful hills, with possibilities for hunting and fishing and camping and many other outdoor activities.

D. Fox, president of the Fayette County Tuberculosis and Health Association, There were 101 persons who had large chest x-rays taken when the mobile x-ray unit was in the community recently. Pul- CREEK-BOTTOM COMMENTS by Reuben Away back in 1819 Chief Justice Marshall said, "the power to tax involves the power to destroy,,. 101 years later the rabbid Communist Lenin said "eventually tiie United Slates will spend itself into bankruptcy". The unholy alliance of taxation and indebtedness, is rca! cause for alanii, more so then Sputnik. It is estimated that the sum total of indebtedness in United States' now stands at 700 billion dollars. A few days ago Congress upped the legal debt limit of the Government by another 5 billions. The average citizen, in effect works • from New Year to May 10th, to earn his or her Federal tax money. We agree that income tax is the fairest tax of all, but the Federal Income Tax Law of 1914 opened the floodgates of tax burden in the U.S. The Federal tax take has skyrocketed in the last 40 years. The per capita Federal tax was only $1.98 in 1885. By 1917 it had reached $7.92. By end of World War I it had shot up to §35.70, dropped back to $12.48 in 1932. It hit a peak of $312.86 during World War II, but by 1950, an Eisenhower "peace year," it had reached an all-time high of $446.86. There are hidden taxes at every twist and turn in the production and processing of foods, there being about 150 taxes involved in a loaf of bread or a can of beans. About S800 taxes in a $3000 automobile. Half the price of a pack of cigarettes, 9- tenths the price of a bottle of distilled liquor, is taxes, (which is as it should be). This unholy tax- debt alliance was foreseen long ago, by both our statesmen and our enemies. We would now do well to re-consider those words of Chief Justice Marshall, and also the rabbid Lenin. Excessive taxation can and has brought about the downfall of many Old World governments in the past.

J- monary Interpretation of the film It COULD HApPEN HERE, if we indicated 4 probable cases of Tuberculosis. The program was directed by Mattie ipeterson, R.N., public health nurse, who interviewed persons who are known to have been in contact with an active case of tuberculosis. She made 92 calls to homed, taking case histories of 110 persons. I These visits followed conferences with 25 physicians. The Contact case-finding program is sponsored jointly by the Fayette County Tuberculosis and Health Association, the Iowa Tuberculosis and Health Association, and the State Department of Health. It has the approval of the Fayette County Medical So ciety. Local Christmas Seal funds have helped to defray the expense. Besides the tuberculosis find ings, there were 21 persons whose chest x-rays revealed non-tuberculosis findings for which further study was recommended The remaining 61 persons who had chest x-rays were notified All Wallpapers in stock at the present time will be closed out at reduced prices- to make room for the 1958 line.
