WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER IB, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (AHK.) COURIER NEWS PACT FTVB Mechanization Is Adding To US Agriculture Woes By OVID ). MARTl.V Associated Press Farm Reporter WASHINGTON (AP) — Rapid mechanization of agriculture — spurred by huge war and postwar demands — is pouring fuel on a long .smouldering ril't between "small" and "big" farmers. Declining prices of farm products are fanning the feud. Recent hearings on farm prob-,ncxt year's presidential campaign, lems held by the Senate Agnelli-, Machinery, electrification, better lure Committee in major farming seeds, improved fertilizers and the areas indicated thU division may like ar. making it possible to become a major issue — along gvav more and more crops on iew- \vilh farm price supports — in I or and fewer acres.

Dollar Days Ends Saturday FftfENDir SHOI STOKI leed.s open the way to produce more meats, eggs and poultry with ; less feed and labor. Increased Efficiency This increased efficiency is pul- I tins a .•squeeze on the smaller farni- | ers who do not have the finances to lake advantage of improved mechanization or enough land to justify their use. Largely because of mechanization, crop surpluses have been built ' up. Prices have been depressed. NaturalK', the less efficient produc- ' c:-5 are hit hurdes,t — and they are, in most cases, operators of small- 2r farms. This development has given rise to new damands that government farm policies be designed to pro; tect the ••family-type" farm. Government reports show there has been a rather sharp decline in the total number of farms in last 20 . cars. It has been accompanied by an increase in the average size of iarms. This Miuation is br'-iging to the forefront dcmnnds of some farm- ?rs.and their leaders that the nation decide whether agriculture is f o be regarded as merely a business enterprise o; as a social ':i- stitution to preserve a rural way j of life. Dominated Hearings ! Conflicts over these two philoso-j j phies dominated many of the Sen-; j ate Committee hearings. Typifying the viewpoint that agriculture is solely a business -en- i was the testimony given I by President H. E. Slusher of the Missouri Farm Bureau ""ederation at a hearing at Des Moines, Iowa. "Recognition should be given." lie said, "to the fact that farming is a business and not just a way of life; that as a business, farms have become larger to make mech nmzation practical; that there i: no virtue in, making small farm o; orators any more than in making small business men; that subsistence farmers must be dealt with as a welfare problem and not as a farm problem." Plain-spoken Daniel E. Boodry has farmed 33 years in Goshen County, Wya. Agriculture "can take care of itself if left alone," Boodry said he suggested at farmers "hollering" about the situation should quit the farm. On the other hand came the complaint of R. V. Fitzgerald Jr.. tanner-spokesman for his neighbors in Aurora County, S. D. "We decry the efforts of those who would foist upon the farmer any farm program which will, through economic necessity, place the farmer into the employ of giant | 'corporation' far in s or into the • cities there to compete in the la ' bor pool as an unskilled worker," New Books At Wilson Actress Drops Battery Charge HOLLYWOOD </P) — Actresi Jil Jarmyn has decided not to prosecute screen star Susan Hay ward. who Miss Jarrnyn said socked her Wilson Public Library is cclebrat-j with a hair brush. !n« National Book Week No\, 131 -j'ye been through a huniiliat- Ihrou^'Ii 19, with the announcement ! ji,^ experience and f want to forget," ot" a number of new books lo lend, j MISS Jarnnn told Dep.
