President Allan B. Ktinp of the American Farm Bureau Federation told the National Editorial Association here. The pvopnim of farm income .support proposed recently by Secretary of Agriculture Brannan "varies -so !ar from the position of the American Farm Bureau that we have no choice b'.il to oppose it." Mr. Kline 104 Farms in Wyoming Mountains Offered for Homestead Settlement One hundred and four Individual farm units of about 130 acres each have been opened for hometsead -settlement on the Heart Mountain Division of [he Bureau of Kei-ta- matlon's Hhoshone project in northwestern Wyoming, according to K. F. Vernon of Billings. Mont., director of Bureau's Region Six. Included in (he opening, the third on this division since the end of world War II. are 12,1)73 acres of irritable land. The average farm unit contains 116 acres of irrigable land and about 15 acres of non- Irrigable land suitable for pasture and other purposes. Veterans of World War II arc given 'irelerence of application. Applications for the Irrigable farms received by the superintendent of the Shoshone Project at Cody, wyo.. 'by •> p.m.. July 12 will 't'he units have never been cultivated. Canals, laterals and other structures to bring the IrrifiRiion water to the (arm units have been constructed by the Hureau of licc- laimulan. ApjiHculluns [or the [arm units received before the close of the simultaneous filing period nnd whlrli are complete. Including proof of veterans' preference, will be entered in a public drawing to establish n priority by which veterans will be considered for the available farms. Following the drawing, Ihe applications will be reviewed by an examining Board composed of local i citizens and one Bureau of Declamation employee. H Ihe [ lions are found In order and the applicants meet all requirements they will be allowed lo select farm -ulbright Asks Extension of Market News be considered simultaneously filed ] unit.s In the order established The Federation stands firm in support of the principles of tlic Agricultural Act of 1948. \vhlch provides a system of flexible price sup- ktiorls nnd .satisfies "the American farmer's desire to fit his independent operations into a dynamic, free and prosperous economy," he declared. llcsi^ned lo Trolrct Income "Nothing has changed our conviction that the best thing In sigh!, for agriculture Is the act passed In the last session of Congress. It l.i desicned to protect farm income from collapse and to avoid unnecessary regimentation, controls and Interference with the fanners' rlgh^ to work out their own programs Individually and collectively." Consumers who think the Brannan program would assure cheap and farmers who think It would nssnre continuance of wartime income levels "had belter take another look before they buy Ihe bill of giorls offered by the Brannan proposn'," Mr. Kline said. "Nothing in onr analysis so far changes the first Impression that it Is a r.olif,ical move. When farmers lire promised high prices and consumers cheap food on the same coramprtilie.", at the same time, there probably is a catch somewhere. In jj this cise. the sleight-of-hand is •^government, control. Tentative studies indicate that there were only two years (1947 and 1848) out of the last 3!) when total cash farm income was as high as the Incoms support standard proposed by Scc- re1:'rv Brannan. "This means that the program promises to continue, by government administered prices. Inflation-- arv price relationships. "At the same time." Mr. Kline continued, "income support standard is substituted for the party concept. While, if applied at the present time, thus program sounds like a high-priced program. It Is well for farmers to apply It to conditions which have existed and see what its meaning might be. Hail It been in effect over the past 28 years. Ihe income support standard would have been below actual cash farm Income In 19 of the year.s. 191(1 Figure! Quoted For example. In 1939, not a prosperous year, the standard called for a cash farm income of approximated 6.9 billion dollars. The actual cash farm Income was 7.9 billion dollars. In 1939 It would have been necessary to increase farm prices by 31 percent to have had them equal parity as now figured. Farm prices 13 percent lower would have eqiuled' the proposed Income stand- iird. "This suggests that it would certainly be unwise for farmers to ylrade the. program developed over *a period ol years lor this precarious and untried income standard. Although It is high now, history indicates that it Is apt lo be a boom- The Brannan program, in the Copies of the public notices, application forms and detailed information about the opening may be -secured from the regional director's office, R.
