W'c tin J encouragement for general farm legislation this year in our talks recently with high USDA officials, congressmen and farm organization leaders. They all agree on one thing; something MUST be done soon. Farm income took another drop last year, down from $12.1 billion in 195* to SI 1.9 billion in 1957. More than .100,000 farmers, faced with rising costs and dwindling income, sold out and moved to cities last year. "Wc cannot afford to stand idly by and permit the decline in our agricultural resources and the impoverishment of 20 million citizens who depend upon farming for a living," Kep. Harold Cooley, chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, told us. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Tafl Benson it equally emphatic that new farm legislation Is urgently needed to "correct a situation that certainly I* not improving." He Is pressing Congress to make changes this year. President Eisenhower has been promised that his I J-polm revision of present farm laws will be given careful consideration by Congress. Most of it will be adopted, although key points have aroused adamant opposition.

In fact, very few assumed they were "ahead" of us until the first earth satellite was in its orbit. Much was also made of the "cultural lag" that seems to have plagued every generation since the beginning of historic man. Out of both comes some very interesting paradoxes and some interesting comparisons. The "cold war" has become a technological advencement war as of late.

This, instead of the Republicans putting on rose-colored glares, while the Democrats make the most possible political hay. It's just as ridiculous for the Republicans to utier bland gog- gledygook, that there is no recession, as lor the Democrats to scream from the political rooftops, that the only cure for the depie.sion. is to put them back in full power. Too many days .the big men of both parties act like squabbling school boys instead of the statesmen they're supposed to be. • • » We don't need an economic expert to tell us whether or ntH there is a recession. All we need do is visit near relatives in Cedar Rapids or close friends in Waterloo. It's not just a matter of delinquent payments on luxuries. In too many cases payments on iho roof over the family's head are in jeopardy. Our Governor Loveless is NOT too far removed from his pcoijle to be keenly aware of these unfortunate facts. • * m • • Why does American society pay homage to the "successful" Professional & Business Directory DIAMONDS SILVERWARE JEWELRY AND ELGIN HAMILTON AND BULOVA WATCHES SABOE JEWELRY WEST UNION, IOWA DR.
