(to.) Upft»» P« Metwi Thursday, March 28, 1957 Price Supports For 195? Crops Down From '56 Farm Economists Come Up With a fccon< UpV Few Predictions Price supports for 1957 will run Jo WIT than those for 1956. Corn puce supports will be $1.30 a bushel this year as compared with $1.50 in 1956. The oais support will be 60 cents a bushel in- strad of 65 cents. Soybeans will be supported at $2.09 a bushel instead of $2.15 and grain sorghums will be $1.83 per hundredweight instead of $1.97. Wheat supports wnl stay at $2 a bushel though. The U. S. D6partment of Agriculture says the lower price supports are intended to reduce crop output, to stimulate domestic consumption and to bring domestic prices more in line with world prices. See More Feeding However, if consumption of feed grains increases, more livestock products will result,' says Francis A. Kutish, Iowa State College farm economist. This means narrow feeding and profit margins. Therefore, says Kutish, as long as there is a large output of feed grains, there can be no satisfactory solution for present poor farm incomes. Between 1953 and 1956, 26 million acres were shifted out of wheat and cotton production under the allotment programs. This brought production of these two commodities about in line with domestic demand. But the shifted land went into feed grains, and livestock production jumped. Peed Ouipul'Up Livestock output has ris>-n only 3 percent since 1953, but ftvd grain output in 1935 was up u petttnt and would havt been more if it hadn t been for the drouth, says Kutish. He says that until there is a way to stop excessive output of farm products, there is iittle hope that rarm earnings will «._• tiK,i<_ satisfactory. Lslunaies made a; Iowa State College indicate that farm production in recent years has been 4 to 6 percent "more than can be soid fur what I'aimois consider adequate puces. The Iowa State College economist believt'S that to bung prices oacR in line, we must cut our present stocks of surpluses back to where they will provide adequate, but not excessive, reserved. Dr. Karl Fox, head oi the Department of Economics and Sociology at Iowa State College, says chis cutback would require that present agricultural production oe decreased 5 percent. This decrease would have to be maintained until 1960, he -says. Mow Consumption'Compares There have been statements to the effect that the people of thu United States don't eat as much meat as do those of South America and .Australia, 'luuse stale ments would imply that we couid step up meat consumption in this country. The United States, however, has a large poulry industry that these other tWorcountries da.not, points out Kutish. If we consider poultry consumption, our total protein intake compares favorably with Austrailia and South America. In 1956, U. S. citizens ate a per - person average of 164.7 pounds of red meats, and 83.8 pounds of poultry products and lish. This was a total consumption of 248.5 pounds as compared with about 200 pounds for Australia and South America, if milk is included in the U. S. figure, the total protein intake climbs to about 380 pounds per person.

This week the bill which would prohibit holding companies from gaining .control of savings and loan associations passed the House. Laws concerning holding companies buying up banks art already on the statute books. However, previous legislation did not include the savings and loan associations and as there are holding companies beginning to operate in this manner it has been deemed in the best interes! of all to stop this practice before it becomes widespread. » » » The normal savings and loan associations, as w'e know them, are limited to lending money to those within a 50 mile radius of the association. This limitation makes a savings and loan company a local operation. But if holding companies were permitted to own them on a 'chain store' type of operation it would completely destroy the local control and local operation. This legislation was voted unanimously and had bi-partisan support from the beginning. * * » There is some talk now that the Senate may come forth with a corn bill in about two weeks.

Agriculture to support corn raised within allotments nt $1.60 pei bushel. This will give those who comply a higher price support and should give the acreage program (as drastically low as it is) a better chance. The possibility that corn raised outside of allot ments will be supported will tend to invite a higher production of corn which will add to our overall problem of too much corn. * * * H. R. 85, a bill calling for the Banking and Currency Commit* tee of the House of Representatives to make a thorough study and investigation of the United States monetary operation ana fiscal policy, is to come up foi debate this next Wednesday. The President had asked for a civilian committee to do this but, the Constitution specifically seta out the fact that the regulation and control of the monetary policies of the U.S. are the specific responsibilities of the Congress. It is the hope that this study car. produce ways to stabilize our economy to ward off any futun spirals of inflation or the into depression. "An ounce ot prevention is worth a pound of cure" should be well taken in this instance.
