A MERICAN farmers are geared to produce a lot more food and fiber than can be sold at home or 'overseas, CCC (Commodity Credit Corporation) held an estimated $7.8 billion stock of farm products on September 1, 1956. Storage costs alone are about $1,000,000 a day. The CCC hoard of farm products is equal to about « of a full year's output from all farms in the United States. Twice in the past 50 years farmers have been called on to commit all their resources to the winning of a World War. Now for a second time we are faced with cutting back down'to domestic needs plus exports. In the 1920's, the job of adjustment was poorly handled. This set the stage for the great depression of the early 1930's. The stage is being set up now .for the 1960's. If we do a good job, the next 10 years will be one of progress and hope. If we do a poor job, well have the devil to pay. The Soil Bank is one move in the right direction. It does not replace the regular government farm programs already on the books. • Price support programs, acreage allotments and marketing quotas are still in effect. • Agricultural Conservation will continue. • The Soil Conservation Service will continue to work with Soil Conservation Districts. The Soil Bank program is designed to strengthen each of these major programs and help in making farm adjustments easier. There are two parts to the Soil Bank program. First: the acreage reserve section Is a quick-acting plan designed to take crop land-out of production until excess CCC stocks can be sold. Unless extended, the acreage reserve program will end in 1959. Second: the conservation reserve is a long-range (3-15 year) plan designed to rebuild soils and restore such natural resources as timber and water reserves, v There is a total of $1,200,000,000 available in Soil Bank funds, to be distributed to farmers in 1957. You can earn some of this money while buiWing up vour farm, growing drouth emergency feed reserves, cutting back your total operation or getting a fob. Seeding paiture and hoy crops to go Into the Soil Bank. When they grow up they are available for drouth emergency use. The Secretary has authority to allow grazing on reserve acres as he did in the fall of 1956.
