STEEL AND ECONOMIC STABILITY "CRUSHING DEFEAT ?" The decision of all major, steel, raise their prices $6 a ton brought a well-ad- served rebuke from the President of the. United States. Steel and its dost to manufacturers is a bdiic component of the price levels ultimately charged the consumer or purchaser. When steel goes '•. up, you can just about expect other commodities to follow suit. Despite what steel executives have said in their own defense, their operating statements of profit and loss do not show that they have been hurting. Nor are the steel mills operating toddy at full, capacity. In addition, a recent series of negotiations led to "holding the wage line" with steel worker unions. The steel firms who originally decided to boost their prices changed their minds, Friday, when the government moved to begin a price-fixing Investigation. The price increase has been canceled. '.-',-' However, In general terms of economic stability - in other vyords to keep the cdst of living from going up regularly — there are some Tether factors worth considering, even by the ^President of the United States. One is that government itself, as the largest single spender of money in the nation, can ,d_o its own part to help maintain economic stability. If the government allows its own funds to be continually gobbled up in "cost plus" contracts that add to the final and total expense 7f projects, it Is making its own_ contribution to Inflation. If government employees are given wage Increases, it is no different in effect on costs and ultimate results than if the steel unions had been given a wage increase. The steel industry leaders deserved a rebuke on their decision, and got it. But the U.S. government itself should apply some of the same principles to its own operations "as it is asking of private industry. * * * Some of our friends who have wintered in the south and southwest, have had considerable chance to study our great desert areas.

Mayor Richard Ddley ih news stories ( last week from Chicago concerns the thumbs down given by voters of that city to a proposed bond,Issue for $66 million. The proposed bonds were to be used to finance urb<m renewal, sewers, street lighting, bridges, viaducts and municipal buildings, ' Because; Mr. Ddley was the mayor, and had backed the ; proposed bond issues, the defeat of the proposal at the polls was interpreted as a personal s|ap in the face to Daley, and afforded much gl$e in republican circles. In the.isame election, democrats won all seven Superior Court contest! in Cook count/.' >We rather suspect that the voters of CKi- cago did n«t have in mind Mdyfor DaleyY or either the republican or democratic parties, when they defeated the bond issJeV '. , ., ; The voters were probably fully aware by voting in favor'of a $66'million bond'issue,'that bond issue v/ould have to be paid for, and that meant increased taxes. And they also, know that regardless of which party is in power, a windfall of $66 million is a nice little nestegg for any administration tq play'with. They defeated it. We are! more inclined .to think that the election of the Superior'Court judges indicated 'the'political preference of the citizens of Chicago, and that the outcome of the bond issue indicated their "pocketbook preference." * * * THAT NEW "IOWA STEAK" When members of the Iowa Beef Producers Ass'n finish their banquet Wednesday evening, April 18, in Des Moines, they will settle back for a program. During the program they will find which name, out of some, 4,000 suggestions offered, has been selected for a certain-cut of steak which is to be indentified with the State of Iowa. This contest evidently developed because we have New York cuts and Kansas City cuts, and certainly there should be an Iowa cut. This particular cut is made from the top sirloin portion of the sirloin. , •. • There were a lot of fancy names suggested, and one of them will probably win. But with all the beef cattle produced in the state, maybe a good, simple name like "Iowa Cut Sirloin'" wouldn't be far wrong. SHUMAN'S NEIGHBOR DISAGREES i ,;;''.,. ' '. .;,•:.;....•>...(. •;••••;, Chicago,American — A Central Illinois farmer says* the American, Farm §yredu's proposed cropland retirement program dbes not have the support of farmers in the home county of farm bureau president Charles Shuman. Ed Hortenstine, Moultrie county, III., testified at a House agriculture committee hearing on the farm bureau program. The plan tails for government land-rental payments to farmers who voluntarily idle cropland in an effort to cut surplus grain production/ • . -. • Hortenstine, who operates a 240-acre farm, said he and Shuman have been neighbors in Moultrie county for more than 30 years "but we widely differ in our views on this program." Hortenstine said he supports the Kennedy administration farm proposal which Is based on mandatory acreage controls for specific surplus crops. The Illinois farmer cited several recent developments to back up his contention that most Moultrie county farmers disagree with Shuman's plan and with the farm bureau leader's opposition to administration farm programs. Hortenstine said about 75 percent of the total cropland of Moultrie and Coles counties was enrolled in the administration's 1961 feed grain program, which Shuman opposed. "And within the past year, several other farm groups have enrolled upward of 200 farm families in their membership, most of which have belonged to farm bureau at one time or another," the farmer added. Hortenstine testified also that last July, Moultrie county farmers elected a new county agricultural stabilization committee which is "100 percent for the present farm program." "This indicates that the farm bureau's soil bank program is not acceptable even in Mr. Shuman's home county," Hortenstine said. Hortenstine told the House committee he operates a typical family farm. He said he came here "on my own, and at my own expense," to present his views. THESE WOMEN!
