BV WII.I.IS T11OKNTO\ NEA Sen-Ice Staff Correspondent KANSAS CITY, Jnn. i.—Out iwre on the broad fertile plains of Kansas and Missouri, people may be pardoned just n trace of skepticism about the farm pi-cjmm. Ramans have seen control schemes come and go, and Missourinns still say, "You've got to show me!" . For fortunes here are staked on a week of rain or n spell of droug'il. and this great city draws Its lifeblood In grain and livestock, col- tori and oil, from the entire southwest. '- Hence the bitterest pill this section has had (o swallow is the lamentable stale of the livestock industry. You hear stories of trainloads: of slock coming In here and selling at prices thai dltl not pn>' the freight. ...Commission men (ell me that T.ifiuch cases, if true, must have beeii exceptionally old and poor rat*. .'.',..\*fjtes Lowest in Years Nevertheless, a farmer Is netting 2.75 cents a '[.mind for hogs which used lo be as lilt" as 22 cents, and heavy cattle, fed .'or n year, have teen bringing 4 cents n pound, the lowest price In 30 years. Poor- grade cattle actually have sold here'below a cent a pound. ../And Ihe greatest irony of all •'is- this: The fanner himself 1$ -.being made lo pay the pork pro: ceasing t«, which was supposed . ta hate been paid by the consumer! Not in cash, but in lowered ' prices. Here's how that came about: - packers say people will pay only 'so much for pork, and tciat If It goes above a certain price, they simply slop buying it and eat other foods Instead. Therefare, when the processing U* of a cent a pound was ass»s, ed, UK packers, who had no in- tenUca of paying it themselves, •tapir eat It off the price (hey paid the farmer', a'rid ntiv lows In farmers' hog prices were reached. 'And there are higher processing (axes to come! r' '-".' It's Not Hopeless .So'the soutlrwest's livestock rais- ers'may be pirdonM a little skepticism. 'But It Is.not a hopeless sXeptl- cism. Despite this shattered market, the. . American Royal Stock Show here, attracted - 50,000 more stockmen than It ever did before, and had exhibits'from as far away as Canada. J. C. Swift, who was president 61 the Royal, expressed some hope of the pig-killing. program. "We hope that it will begin to have somb effect by February, when the slaughtered pigs would have begun coming on the maY- ket," says Swift.' "That should mean fewer, receipts and higher hog prices at that time. "But to my mind It Is absurd to try to put a surplus-producing nation on a self-contained basis. A way must be found to get exports again. Must Trade Shrewdly "Some g6od may come from Russian recognition, but we will have to get a little shrewder In International trading, like the Yankees used to be In the old clipper days, when we asked fa,- vors of none, and yet spread our trade around the world." But despite all this grief In one of-their main industries. Kansas and Missouri farmers are nowhere near as radical as these ol the northwest or even of Iowa. It Is estimated, for instance, thai in Missouri a third of air farm: are owned clear, a third are mortgaged only lightly, and most of the others are not greatly below theli mortgage value. Even In such cases there is hope For A. O. Bryant, chairman of the Central Farm Relief Association whose members are -unwilling' owners of vast tracts of foreclosed Kansas and Missouri land, says prices ot rarm land are alreadv from 10 to 25 per ceni higher than a.year ago. Mortgage Bill Falls Short -The farm mortgage bill ts re garded out this way as a fiat fall ure. The Federal Land Banks wer not equipped to handle the thou sand] of applicants. ''• Restrictions on loans were tight that many were rejected, an this caused more 111 feeling than there had been no program at al Recently, • more liberal appraisa *nd the getting in mesh of the farm machinery have eased this situation somewhat. • You repeatedly hear farmers say that If they can refinance their .debts on a long-term and k>w-ln- terett basis . instead of the 6 per . cent mortgage and 12 per cent chattel loan money they used tc. get. they will be all right without any further federal tinkering with the ptotetses of nature.
