THURSDAY, JUKE 8, 199C Makers of Oleo Ready (or Push Big Market Drive To Begin July 1 With Drop of Tax ijf WASHINGTON, June B. (AP) — Tjpeomargarliie makers are preparing a big push (or their yellow product the day— Saturday July 1— that the ten-cenU-a-pound federal tax Is dropped. " Housewives should be able to get It at lower prices promptly that day, Paul Trultt, president or the National Association of Margarine manufacturers, said today. His statement applies, of course, only to the 33 states which hai'e authorized sale of yellow margarine. Truitt told a reporter he is confident that (he full tax savings will be passed along' to the consumer, making yellow margarine available then at about the present price of white margarine. lie said the industry expects yellow margarine to replace the white practically , completely on grocery shelves alter'. June 30 except in the 15 states which still ban sale of the colored product. The federal government took in over $23,033,000 from margarine taxes in !94<J, and that measures the amount of revenue it will be giving up from repeal. The repeal extends not only to the ten counts a pound levy on yel- iJow margarine but also to the 1|4 of ^Ppc cent tax on uncolored margarine, and license fees assessed dealers. In 1026, Americans consumed on the average of 18 pounds of butter and 2 1J2 pounds of margarine. Last year— after wartime conditions had reduced u^e of bread spreads and housewives had learned to oe more saving, Trultt says— the butter average was down to 10 pounds, the margarine average up to 6. The publicity given margarine during the fight for repeal of the tax in the last two congressional sessions is credited with giving sales a boost, too, particularly tho^e of yellow margarine.

(AP)—A flying nursery which left California six days ago landed here yesterday with Us disgruntled, weary load of 40 wives, 35 children, and seven husbands, . All were dishevelled. Most a'ere irate at air (ravel technicalities which shuttled their airliner- chartered to bring fromer British women marled to Americans back with their children for an'English holiday—from California to Connecticut, then to Miami, Havana, and Newfoundland before crashing the Atlantic. ' . Many of the children wire 111, and were crying as their mothers carried them from the plane. Two stewards, assigned to care for the group en route, sighed with obvious relief as the voyage ended. The ordinarily simple (light from California to England had been complicated and delayed hy an International dispute over landing rights for the chartered airliner. EDSON Continued from Page, i positive, ratio of gross farm pro diictlon to national income, we can set up this dogmatic conclusion—no political party can operate the .economy of the United States on a basis of full employment and national solvency unless it is willing to stabilize our gross farm income at a level high enough to provide the national income required. This sounds a little like a OOP Brnnnan plan, but It Isn't. Mr. Wilken backs up his "Seven to One" — or,"One to Seven"— figure's covering the last 20 years. In 1929. gross farm income was $13,000.000.000, Or 14.8 per cent, roughly one-seventh of national income of $87,300,000,000. .The ratio was 14.4 per cent-in 1937 and 14.4 per cent in 1948. The Wilken theory seems to bog down a little for 1933 and . 1944, however. These were bad farm years, but gross farm Income was 10 per cent of national income, anil the ratio was one to six.

In 1D40 and 1941 the ratio was a little better than one to eight. But the 20-year average was H.3 |i«r cent, or one to seven, and that's Mr. .Wlllcen's theory and he slides to It. "The seveii-tlhies trade turn ol gross rarm 'income Is in reality our efficiency ratio of pe r man production," Insists Mr. Wilken. "It exists primarily because such average farm worker produces enough farm raw materials for himself »nd six other workers. The conclusion which Mr. Wilken draws from tills Is that to create economic stability and protect national income from sever losses due to unnecessary drop In price levels, thd country should stabilize the prices of non'-iierlslmble farm crops The price of our basic nonperishable crops should be stabilized at parity with the value or an ounce of gold, the yardstick for our monetary measuring in world trade," says Mr. Wilken. "Such a !i! p .^i" f'"""" our Price level nues at 169 per cent of i i, - u7 9 P criod . <"• the same relationship between gold and commodities during that period," So that's It, is It?
