Crop Insurance The Wallace-Roosevelt crop insurance plan, calling for the accumulation by the government in good years of reserves of wheat and other staple •fnnn .commodities for the purpose of protecting both producers mid consum.- ers against short production in unfavorable years, appears altogether sound and sensible. • • -It should be ompliasi/cd, however, that in.itself it is no solution of the problem of achieving economic stability for the producers of wheat, cotton, corn, tobacco and other agricultural commodities of which this country's normal production is in excess of domestic requirement!;. An "ever-normal granary," as Secretary of Agriculture Wallace lenns it, is a highly desirable thing, but ire are confident, that the secretary will be the first to agree that his crop insurance program alone cannot achieve it. It must be accompanied by a measure of production control .'sufficient, to, -keep production in balance with consumption. Otherwise, because Hi is country has the "capacity to produce far in excess of available markets, it will result in the accumulation of reserves, far in excess of any "insurance" requirements, with disastrous effect upon prices. Croj> insurance through the accumulation of reserves, without control of production, will simply invite a repetition of the farm, board fiasco of seven and eight years ago. -.-• t We say this although we agree fully -with those who contend thiilHhe best "and perhaps the only final solution of the wheat and cotton and tobacco farmer's problem lies in the recovery, in substantial part at least, of lost foreign markets. We only ask that those who would regain those lost markets recognize the real obstacle to their recovery and plan their program accordingly. Such limitation of production as has been resorted to in this country has been the result, not the cause, of lost foreign markets. We cannot sell increased quantities of cotton and wheat abroad at a profit simply by increasing our production of those commodities. There must, first be an increase in foreign buying power, -which can only bo achieved through a corresponding increase in the volume of foreign products which we are willing to accept in exchange for those we have to .sell. Until we arc ready to OUT OUR WAY cotmtEk NEWS lot down our.barriers to foreign goods to an extent that will permit the exchange for them of all the cotton and wheat and other commodities we can produce in excess of our domestic requirements, it will be necessary for us to limit our production of those commodities. More Income Is Needed A contemporary, commenting upon the declaration of William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, thai every American family should have fin annual income of not less than 53,600, points out that the first essential to (he achievement of such a desirable distribution of lia- . tional income is a very great increase in that income. According to the best available I\Kures the total income of the nation for 103G was $<1GD for every man, woman and cliild in the United States. If that were evenly distributed it ''would amount to ?2,3'15 per year for every family of live in the country—short by more than $1,200 per year of Mr. Green's goal. Now we have no doubt that a, number of Americans are enjoying incomes out of all proportion to the value of the service, if any, which they perform. We think there is room for improvement in the way the wealth of America is divided. But the chief hope for those of low income lies in the opportunity which exists for increasing, the national wealth rather than in any change in the division of the existing wealth. Mussolini Vs. Capitalism It is getting to bo more ami more confusing. Just the other day Mr. Troynnovsky, the Soviet, Ambassador io Ibis country, \v;i.s telling us Hint "Hie most important problem in the world Is not n struggle between capitalism and Socialism but the struggle between Fascism and democracy." S3 the Soviets are willing, apparently, to establish ;a modus vlvcndi with cnpllnltsm, provided It Is democratic. But now Mussolini tells our correspondent that "democracy is only a'mask for capitalism," and that capitalism is "dead." The Communists Hiscrt lo tell us that real democracy was Impossible under capitalism, and (hat Fascism wns tlie .last dcspirafo eflorl to defend capitalism. • 'NOW the Fascists tell iis thai the real trouble with, democracy is that it masks capitalism. Have the' two extremes suddenly switched places? Have the Communists suddenly become capitalistic and the Pas- cists antl-capilalisllc- Or Is just considered good "Indies." for the Comnmnlsls lo nod pleasantly to capitalism, and for tl lc Fascists fo make horrible faces at It? —Simeon Slrunsky In Ne\y York Times.
