Main St Phone 4405 New Formula For Parity Starts January 1 WASHINGTON W The government jrill. start, using a new standard January 1 for measuring prices of many farm products. The purpose of using the standard is to determine whether, in the langauge of congress.those prices are "fair and equitable." The standard is' called "modernized parity," 6s distinguished from "parity" for the old measuring rule. The government first started measuring farm prices in ', 1933. Provision for doing so was made in precedent-breaking crop control legislation enacted by the Roosevelt New Deal administration to revive a bankrupt agriculture. The law authorized use of various measures to pull prices up to the parity level. ' . The Agricultural Adjustment Acf of 1933 said, in" effect that farmers were entitled to prices for their products which would give those products the purchasing power, in terms of non-farm goods and services, that they enjoyed in a past f avorabla period, usually 1909-14. In other words, the law said a do2en eggs should buy as many nails as it did in the base period. Maintenance of such a relationship, he added, would be. "fair and equitable" to alL The law set up a formula for determining parity prices for various products. Except in a few cases, this formula has been in constant use for nearly 17 years. " But congress has directed thai the formula be changed the first of the year.- It. said, in effect, that the old formula is not accurate enough because it does not take into account changes in ity prices for livestock and livestock products and lower ones for crops. These differences reflect in the main the fact that modern machinery has reduced the cost of producing most crops, while higher wage rates have boosted the cost of producing livestock and livestock products. Peek, Johnson Sponsored Where did the idea of a parity measuring standard for farm prices originate? It's impossible to get an answer acceptable to all farm leaders and agricultural historians. One of those active in efforts to get federal farm-aid legislation during the 20s and '30s M. I Wilson, now director of the U. S. Extension service aays perhaps a hundred or so persons could claim some credit. Historians generally agree, however, that George Peek and Gen. Hugh Johnson, associates in a midwestern" farm machinery concern, were among the first to sponsor it. They originated the slogan "equality for agriculture" in a book published in 1922, when agriculture was suffering from depression.. Peek later became' the first agricultural Adjustment Administrator and Johnson the head of NRA, an emergency agency set up in 1933 to help revive industrial prosperity. Coolidge Vetoed Bill The idea of attempting to give farm prices purchasing power equal to that of the 1909-'14 period was embodied in the famous McNary-Haugen farm aid bill passed in the, '20s and vetoed by President Coolidge. Many farm leaders in and out of government contributed to eventual passage of a law setting up the parity standard. They include Peek, former Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace, President Edward O'Neal of the Farm Bureau Federation and several farm leaders in congress., Rexford Tugwell, member of the famous "brain trust" has been credited with helping to sell the idea to President Roosevelt and to work cfut details of the parity formula. Need Bill Of Sale If You Transport Christmas Trees A. W. Marion, director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, today cautioned truckers of Ohio to acquaint themselves with the provisions of a new law passed by the last session of the legislature regarding the transporting of Christmas trees and boughs. The law requires transporters to carry bills of sale for cut trees and boughs when hauling five, or more cut trees or one hundred pounds or more of boughs. The transporter shall have on his person, while engaged in such hauling, a bill of sale signed by the lawful owner or custodian of land or lands from which such trees or boughs were cut and removed. Bill of sale shall designate date of sale, number of the trees or pounds and species of boughs being transported, the name of the township, county and state where such lands are situated and the proper postal address of landowner or custodian. If such trees or boughs have been obtained from a dealer, the bill of sale or invoice shall clearly show his name and place of business. Trucks and trailers or other vehicles licensed for and engaged in interstate commerce are excepted. " ' O. A. Alderman, chief of the Division of Forestry, announced that any forest or park officer, peace officer or highway patrolman of the State may stop any truck or vehicle engaged in such hauling for inspection.. The law provides a maximum penalty of $1,000 or thirty days imprisonment or both. - The new law was passed to control the theft of trees from state forests and privately owned property. , - In the manufacture of the first lead pencils, raw- graphite was sawed into strips which without further treatment, were Inserted into slots cut lengthwise in wooden dowels. Victory Claimed By New CIO Union At Dayton Plant DAYTON, O. ' OP) Local 801 of the new, CIO union for electrical workers today claimed it had won a fight to "protect our grievance machinery" in the Frigidaire division of General Motors. .
