H.COOLEY T HE! people of this • great country have more or less accurate knowledge on the various agricultural relief measures advanced and discussed during the' last two national political campaigns. They also have, no doubt, formed somo definite conclusions concerning .the benefits, if any, resulting from the operation of the agricultural revolving fund, aa administered by the so-called "Farm Board" and the secretary of agriculture. It is not my purpose to discuss the merits oV demerits of this act, The results, however, of its operation futnlsh sufficient and competent proof of the efficacy of this measure. Of more Importance at tho present time la the Democratic Emergency Farm Relief bill, embodying the domestic allotment plan as passed by the House of Representatives Thursday, January 12, and sent to the United States Senate. Tho voluntary plan now proposed for the alleviation of distressed agriculture is perhaps he most daring and ambitious «co- omlo experiment ever proposed In his or any other country. But both arlng and radical It must be If it is meet the needs of the day, and savu ot only agriculture, but prevent ft omplete collapse of all Industry.- All ther schemes to this end have been merely patch up, or tldo over, hrough extensions of credit to tho aslc and the greatest industry in America, and In the end we have only ound that "in saving the wolf, we ave killed the sheep." No Farmer Aid The policy of loaning money to tho armer has helped everybody but the armor. Through this policy wo have aved from bankruptcy tho manufac- urer and other lines of business dur- ng the past several years. This policy merely made It possible for tho farmer o contlnub to buy his necessities with borrowed money, and each year the arm indebtedness steadily Increased, n short, fully one-fourth of our producing population is ; practlcally out of ho consumer market, nnd as a re- Dult, business In general IH In a con- lltlon of stalemate waiting for the mudsill of Industry to be repaired, if wo stop here and get a clouseup of the financial ccndlt'.on of agriculture, we will be able better to- judge of tho necessity of a now experiment—rodl- •al though It may be—In attempting o correct an economic evil that has .11 but bankrupt America. The public press of the day and some few of our "statesmen" are at present very greatly excited over oUr war debt and Interest payments, some lew millions of which have recently QUIVERING .NERVES TPhen you are just on. edge s whoa you can't stand the children'! aoise . . . when everything you d is a Jmrden . . . when you are irri table and blue ... try Lydia E. fink ham's Vegetable Compound. 98 ou of 1OO women report benefit; It will give you just the extra en ergy you need.

While, no doubt, other evils will attack the plan, consequences which might follow Its adoption, It appears as tho best plan yet devised or offered, or tho llcenaed sales plan, under direct control of the government, because It offers the next step toward making agriculture a self-contained Industry, wherein tho business of farming will also Include tho .business of processing and marketing, and this under such control as to prevent exploitation. It would be no less painful to be robbed by an agricultural aristocracy. It must be remembered that under this plan tho processors are to pay the tax, and that this tax will necessarily be paid by the consumer of farm products after they have been processed, and there still remains the Question of benefits to' the producer. There Is active possibility that It would decrease the price, level of farm products, as It would Increase the gap between producer and consumer. It would have a tendency to Increase home manufacture of such arttcles as .packers' products, flour, canned goods, etc., thereby reducing the volume of processing done by the factories, which would Impair their margin of profits and modify labor demand. Manifestly, events have placed agriculture beyond tho ability of self help and manifestly the question that must be decided; Is whether or not the consumer Is willing to pay more for farm products and thus help the farmer out of debt and start the nation's business upward, or witness a complete collapse of our entire business structure. All that Is America, all that has come to America, camo from the first furrow turned In American soil. The farm Is the foundation upon which all Industry rests. To suffer Its further destruction, or even to permit Its present condition to obtain, IB to commit national suicide. If It were simply the farmer as a personality, he would have passed out of the picture centuries ago,, but as his heritage Is farms, and constitutes tho sustaining foundation of human existence, he must be tolerated, If not loved.

The annual payments due the United States from foreign countries on war debts, amount to $250,500,000, whllo the interest charges and insurance required on farm mortgages amount to $900,000,000 per your. Add the cost." It : to that state, county and township lore its taste. t»«es, nnd we have a total fixed charge • per yeqr against agriculture of $1,4-10,000,000. How Can Farmers Pay? If it is contended that European nation's cannot meet a yearly payment of 1250,000,000 on their Indebtedness, it may be asked in all seriousness, how can It be expected tha't American farmers can pay more than six times as much annually as theso debtor nations owe? This condition may. bo emphasized by the further fact that the hnarket value of all hogs, wheat and cotton on American farms in 1931 was $1.246,608,540, or $193,391,460 less than the fixed cnargen of American agriculture. Between June, 1920. and June, 1921, the price level of all farm products dropped from 234 per cent of prewar prices to 110 per cent and by 1930 to 68 per cent of the prewar price level. Farms with fixed charges—Interest, insurance and taxes—that could be paid with one thousand bushels of wheat In 1923, now require more than five thousand bushels to pay the same charges. Mortgage Interest that could be paid with 1} bales of cotton In 1923 now requires more than fifty bales to pay the .same debt. The allotment plan, as sponsored by various furm organizations, Is radically different from any proposal that has heretofore been presented to tho Congress, although It follows, in some respects, the bill for crop control proposed by members of the Federal Farm Board in 1930, and If adopted and followed, would, to" a very appro- I clable extent, remedy the evil wo are I pleased to designate as "overproduction." Its chief. proposal Is to provide the farmer with a price bonus or bounty to reduce and control production Instead of rewarding him for a greater production. Allotment Plan The operation of tho proposed allotment plan would be about us follows: First, a referendum among the producers of a particular commodity— wheat, cotton, hogs or tobacco—would bo held to determine whether tho plan should be applied to that commodity. When 60 per cent of tho farmers producing these staples, approve the plan for their oroi>, the federal government Itf to collect u lux from tlio processors on thut purt of tho crop which is eon- sumued'In this country. To Illustrate: For wheat It would be OB the present tariff Of 4S cents per bushel, and cotton, • 6 cents per pound. It has been estimated that by this method of taxation, a fund would be accumul ated In the federal treasury for wheat, between $180,000.000 and JL'OO.000,000; cotton, $116.000,000 to $160.000,000. and hogs* between $300,000,000 and $400,000,000. Thus a fund of between $600,000,000 and $800,000,000 would be collected from the processors, or manufacturers, handling these productH. The'government would distribute thlw fund us a reward to farmers who had subscribed lo tho plan and Keep their contract with tho government to reduce acreage and curtail output. Tho success of this plan, should »t finally become law, will depend very largely on two things: Its honest and efficient administration and the question of voluntary co-operation, which. In the flnul analysis, has never been n complete success; nnd this assuming I hat Congress gives It life will more than likely bo tho reef upon which" the plan will be wrecked. / Appears Best Imagine, for Instance, what our public school syutfiin and our public Here is the famous old recipe 'which millions of housewives have found to be the most dependable means of breaking up stubborn coughs.
