4-Aleona (la.) Upper Be* Maine* Thursday, March 28, 1957 Price Supports For 1957 Crops Down From '56 form Economists Come Up With a , , Few Predictions Price supports for 1957 will fun lower than those f6r 1956. Corn price supports' Will be $1.30 6 bushel this year as compared with $1.50 in 1956. The o&ts support will be 60 cents a bushel instead of 6,5 cents. Soybeans will be supported at $2.09 a biishel Instead of $2.15 and grain sbr.ghuma will be $1.83 'per hundredweight instead of $1.97. Wheat supports will stay at $2 a bushel though. The U. S. Department 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, . Sea 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 1 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. * Livestock output has risen only 3 percent since 1933, but feed gram output in 1956 was up 8 percent, and would have 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 prodiicts, there is little hope that larm. earnings win be niuie satisfactory. Estimates made at lOWa State College indicate that farm production in recent, yeais has been 4 to 6 percent 1 More than can be sold for what fa'rmers consider adequate prices. The Iowa ytate College econo-- mist believes that to bring prices oaclt in line, we must cut our present stocks of surpluses back to where they will pro Vide' adequate, but not excessive, reserved. Dr. Karl Fox, head of the Department of Economics and Sociology at Iowa State College, says this cutback would require that present agricultural production De decreased 5 percent. This de-' crease would have to be maintained until 1960, he says. >• • HoW Consu'mplion Compares There have been statements to ;he effect that the people of the United States don't eat as much neat as do those of South America and Australia. These stale ments would imply that we could step Up meat consumption in this country. The United States, however, has a large poutry industry that these other two' countries do 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 fish. 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.

Congressman Goad's Comments 6fh Disitlei Congressman \ ' From Iowa 1 Reports On 3 Washington Aoliviliei > This week the 1 Bill which v/oulc! prohibit holding. companies from gaining< cohtfoT of savings. and loan associations passed ,i h e House. Laws concerning holding companies buying up banks' 'are already on the statute b&oks. However, previous legislation did not include ,the jgavings [ associations and as: (here are holding i Companies .beginning to operate; :1nJ this manner- ' it'has been deemed; in the best interest of all to stop; this praci|c£ "before it becomes widespread. •-. ' . • « '•';. • The normal savings and loan associations, as we 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 W,ere permitted to own them 5 ( on a 'Chain store' type of operation it wbuld completely destroy ..the local, control and ; local opei&tion. ';.! This legislation was voted unanimously and had. bi-partisan support from the beginning. * « 4 • There is some talk now that the Senate may come forth with a corn bill in about two weeks. this Is entif efy 1 guesSWork at this ttaa but seems td be the best hope 1 to get fcorn legislation active IfrtL , . . , A total of 31 Congressmen signed the petition I drafted lasi week urging the Secretary of Agriculture to support corn raised within allotments at $1.60 per bUshel. This will give those Who comply a higher price support arid should give'the acreage prd- gram (as drastically IpW as it is), a better Chance. The possibility that corn raised outside of alloti ments will be supported will tend to'invite a higher productiort of cOrnSvhich will add to our over', all problem of too much cofn. . . ••* -,'»..'• . •.- , H.
