With farm labor shortages even more acute than in 1943, the demand for pickers has skyrocketed. It is many times greater than ever before, greater than our capacity, or the capacity of the whole industry, to produce. We have done everything we can to help in this situation. I .gaastSt 1 1 ) We have completed production of our 1944 corn picker program, and have done it weekB earlier than ever before. (2) We have actually built 50'', more corn pickers than in any other year of the Company e history. . (3) We have allocated these machines to the corn-growing regions, with government approval, in the fairest way we knew. Corn pickers are still under rationing, and every corn picker we built has been allotted to a farmer with a rationing certificate for it. They were all sold before they ever left the factory. There is no surplus, no reserve of machines. There simply are not enough corn pickers to go around in this year of unprecedented demand. Under the circumstances, what can be done? We can only make one suggestion and that is for our farmer friends to follow the old helpful-neighbor tradition of American farming, a tradition that comes down from the days of barn-raising and log-rolling. If farmers will share their machines and share their labor, much can be done to harvest this vital war-time crop of com. ...
