JjM DESCRIBES FARM ADJUSTMENT PUN Meg §Wpf>i« Mutt Get Permit to Sell Orderly Mafketing Detail* Outlined by A* Ad- tttiftistratidtl Aft orderly marketing plan, designed to avoid sluts resulting from unusually heavy shipments of light weight pigs undet the Emergency hog program of pre- mlum payments .has been placed IB effect bt the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. Permission to sell and ship at a given time must be secured by farmers of local shippers under the plan in force. These permits, Which are required if the-premium prices are to be paid on pigs under 80 pounds, will be issued In accordance with the ability of the authorlied markets and processor* to handle shipments. They may be obtained froin various designated commission ageh« cles at designated processing points, or from authorized pro- Wide Awake 4-H tft, LftKt cessors, or from these parties through livestock shipper*, and other properly qualified persons. Representatives of the author lied processors at public market* where the emergency program is in operation each day notify th commission agencies at thos markets hpw many pigs will be purchased from the agency at premium prices, The commission firm then notify shippers and ' farmers. At points where there are no marketing agencies or public markets the processors deal directly with the shippers. Hog raisers anticipating sale ot pigs or sows under the emergency plan for premium prices have been urged by the Agricultural Adjustment Administration not to try to sell or ship until they have learned from a reliable source that their market Is authorized to pay the premiums and have secured the permit to ship. They have also been urged to delay their shipments for a week or eo if they have sufficient feed'to carry the pigs. "There is ample time to deliver either pigs or sows to the," says Dr. A. O. Black, , chief of the corn-hog production „ section of the Adjustment Ad- jj%}»lstration, "The emergency Picnic At Gleftwood Lft The Wide Awake 4-H clnh of Center township held a cinti picnic on Wednesday, Aug. 23, at he Glenwood lake.

Home Project Plans to be Made Shortly The Federal farm adjustmetst program Is partly guided by the belief that export of agricultural commodities wlfl not soon recover Its volume of five oT ten years ago, in the opinion ot-F. D. Farrell, President Kangas Agricultural College, writing In the August issue ot the American Bankers Association Journal. "Nobody knows whether the farm adjustment program will succeed.' writes Mf. Farrell. "Its sponsors describe It frankly as an experiment It seeks to socialize agriculture a! least to the extent that farmers, in what Is believed to be the public in terest, will restrain their production activities and that processors, distributors and consumers will con tribute something toward payinr farmers for exercising this restrain! The adjustment programs definite! are based on the tact that prices are determined primarily by supply and demand. They also are based on the assumption that the export business in agricultural commodities will not soon return to its volume of five or ten years ago. Dep«ndence on Publie Support 'The plan offers wheat price in* lurance tor 1933,1934 and 1936, for the domestically consumed portion of the wheat crop. The Insured price Is to be sufficiently high to give the domestically consumed portion of the wheat crop pre-war purchasing power, tt the plan is as effective as its sponsors hope it will be, the reduction in supply may influence wheat prices so that the entire wheat crop will have pre-wa.* purchasing power.

The torn had to go at 15c h*d rafted, the year before, over 231.009 bushels of corn. Another pfemisfnt crop was growing in the fields Just otrtsrtde the chnrch. He said wr wanted less than one per cent of the new corn crop: 2606 bushels. As the service was abont to open, this layman brought In n looking bill-board abont . . , ?. "Sat lOOO of cor.. „.„„,,,„ his interesting ar- ;icle are reprWted below: We will JtfSt have to close our church fOf next year. We Just ean't stipfrbft ft minister another year, the way ec-rtditions are, said M*. and Mrs.- Churchcloser. 1 heard it first when, last CJhtistlan Advocate.• subscribed In one day by the men - 'of this church, gave me an idea. Why not base the salary of the minister on corn? Corn was only 65c a bushel when the salary was $1800. Now corn was 40c—if we could only get back on the basis of 40c corn it would be a great help. Then it came to me that If the salary was to be based on corn, why couldn't the Individual' pledges be based on corn? I wrote the first draft ot ft pledge based on the price of corn. I showed it to one of our finance committee members. * * * At last we had it — a commod- spring, the banks on every side ot us closed UStll now there isn't a baftk opefaliftf within twenty inlles Of thl* open-country church. Everything worked into the hands Of thtos* who wanted to have a Sunday school, but proposed to get along without a minister. The price of farm grains rose to hush their song tor a while, but with the break in the imafket they were at It again. More than that, some of my finest people were almost ready to Join in the chorus. 1 do not blame them, because having lived with them for four years I know what they- have been through. At times t was almost ready to take a leading solo part myself. la my better moments, after what we had already been through, with indications that things would be better, I knew there must somewhere be a plan that would save u». I also knew if I once could get a plan which would hold the loyalty of our wheelhorse members, we could change the song of doom into a fonr feet across. In the center was a drawn picture of our ehnrch. Encircling this chnrch 25 , corncobs were wtrf>d to the i board. Twenty-five well-shaped i cars of seed corn were brought In and laid upon the table. When the time cnme this layman took charge. With the aid of a blackboard*he explained the plan, and showed the fairness of It for both the chnrch and the people. Turning to his sign he said: "Each of these cobs abont this church Is an empty corncrlb, with a capacity of one hundred bushels of corn. By Friday night of this week we are going to have enough corn pledged, or cash on the basis of forty-cent corn, so that these 25 ears of corn representing 2500 bushels of corn, can surround this church in place of these empty corncribs." The idea appealed to everyone Before the service was the ity dollar church pledge. 1 called the finance committee together. Before tne service was over, me They endorsed tt 100 per cent, i ) a d| eg ' aid had made a pledge o „_ „-..._.,— , -i*,. t •«„!, » < n l | 40 of tnfc equivalent of 100 bu shels of corn. A cash pledge was the same as corn, because it would go up or down with the price of corn. A call for canvassers was made and the work begun. • * * The canvass was finished by victory chorus. Living in one Mm., . Richardson, ceeds. its launching probably will mark the end of an era of extreme individualism in agriculture In the United States," says Mr..Farrell, "Recent fundamental changes led Secretary Wallace to say, 'What we really have to do is to change the whole psychology of the people ot the United States.' This is a large order. It involves the whole program Of farm adjustment as well as the larger national economic program, ot which farm adjustment is a part. If the people decline to participate in the program to the, extent necessary to give the experiment R fair of the finest farming sections in Iowa, I naturally have known much about farm products. I knew from experience that my income went up On Saturday morning 1 took it to I the printer and began laying' plans for Sunday morning. * » • The Idea In the pledge appeals .o business men whose income is dependent upon the income ot farmers. Such a sliding church ; pledge might well be based on wages in the wage - earners" church, on potatoes in Minnesota, on butterfat In Wisconsin, on fruit in California, on wheat In Kansas Just as well as on corn In Iowa. * * • But to get back to my story. On Sunday morning a good congregation was present, wholly unaware of what was to happen. The finance committee member, who had worked so hard on the Idea, was to play "quarterback." He knew from his assessor's books that the people from whom we were to get these new pledges Thursday noon, and the total was over 2800 bushels. All these pledges were for the support of the open-country church. The canvass in the village church is being made this week. On Thursday evening the finance committee met to make out the budget for the coming year. The members were weary but happy. The Items of expense for the coming year were placed on the blackboard. The budget was based on 40c corn, and every item of expense which could be so uan- PAGEtMHEfe ^^^^^^^£^^^^^^^^M^jttfMM| ••H^B^MpmBiis^^^^^^^^^^* „.<=„ was placed nnder th* *tldin* scale, to go up or down with th» price of corn. This was necessary to make the plan work. The following minute was adopted, touching the pastor's salary: "The pastor's salary for the coming year shall be dollars, if corn is 40e a bushel. If the price of corn shall prove to bp more thnn 40c. this claifc shall advance by the snmo percentage, but never to mort- than . dollars. If the pricp of com shall prove to be le«s than 40c, this claim shall be lowered by the same percpntase. but never o less than dollars. The irlee of corn shall be established >y taking the nvprntte price received bv the church for corn donated and sold." On Friday night the fourth quarterly conference for the country chnrch was held. An enthusiastic group ot people met the district superintendent. He knew nothing of the plnn until he arrived. It was explain?! to him, and he saw Its possibilities. He declared it was an answer to the need of several churches on the district. This plan has helped the church financially. It has done more than that. It has given the people a new attitude toward the church, I believe It will Increase the attendance at all the services, and open the way for a vigorous program ot evangelism. The fairness ot the arrangement, by which the minister's salary goes up or down with the Income of the people, has appealed to them, and they have ft different notion of giving it to the church. Twenty-cent corn can still put this church into financial difficulties, but not worse than those through which it has gone this year, Only a hailstorm or crop failure can stop the church from Its forward program.
