FAGK Z— XAUGATUCK >'EWS (COXX.), MOXDAY, OCT. 24, inifl DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: NAM Lends Support To Brannan Farm Plan; Prepares Detailed Analysis Which Is Surprisingly Pro-Brannan; Points Out That More Farmers Would Be Helped Under This Program, Washington — The last pressure i - - — — group you would ever expect to sup' port President Truman's fair deal is the National Association of Manufacturers. In fact, if the powerful XAM says anything' good about the White House, it's headline news. However, believe it or not, but the NAM is now sending:, its members a confidential analysis of the most controversial feature of the fair deal — The Brannan farm plan — putting it in a favorable light. Without hysteria, the NAM has prepared a detailed, factual analysis of the Brannan plan, which is neither for nor against. But the sum total of these facts is surprisingly pro-Brannan. Though not yet off the press, preview copies have been sent to several NAM members along with a letter explaining: "Many, even though they recognize the importance of the Brannan plan, nevertheless found it too abstruse for ready understanding. To help remedy this, the NAM research department has done a painstaking analysis of the plans, objectives, operations, etc." Herel then is what the NAM says about the Brannan plan: "Qualified persons have pointed to several apparent advantages in using the Brannan plan to support farm income. They emphasize its directness and simplicity of method, fairness of the period 1939 to 1948 as a starting point for an income base or 'yardstick,' encouragement to continued high level production of nutritional foods, logical classification of storable and non- storable farm products, 'orderly marketing' provisions, financial coverage of farm groups hitherto inadequately provided for in farm programs, and its importance to national security. Brajinan Weaknesses "On the other hand, several weaknesses in the plan are apparent. These shortcomings mainly concern the objective of trying to narrow the gap between farm and non- farm income, the price distortions present in the period of years selected as the starting point for an income base or 'yardstick,' the unsoundness of attempting to project these distortions into the future, the discretionary power to alter prices .dictated by the pricing formulas of the plan, the lack of built- in flexibility in the pricing formulas, and the practicability of again resorting to subsidies production controls, marketing controls and other techniques of manipulation designed to . implement the support of farm income . ." Then the NAM proceeds to answer some of these criticisms. "From the standpoint of those who believe that agricultural prices must be maintained at near wartime levels in order to keep agri culture healthy," the NAM diagVio- sis continues, "The choice of the base period 1939 to 1948 is a logical one. Considered from this viewpoint, it must be pointed out that only with the price relationships existing in these years were farmers as a group in a position to lift their social and financial standards from the depths to which they fell following World War I. •K^a*.™ 38 the ievel of '"come from 1939 to 1948 that enabled farmers to correct many of the maladjustments that were said to be depressing agriculture in the preceding twenty y ears .

More Farmers Helped The NAM report also points out that past price supports have chiefly aided a few basic and storable commodities. The Brannan plan, on the other hand, would help a much broader group of farmers. It would support, the NAM continues, "income of the producers of most of the nonstorable commodities such as meat, dairy and poultry products and fruits and vegetables. Thus, this plan would extend financial assistance in times of stress to a large and important segment of the agricultural industry that has so far probably not been adequately provided for in the basic farm programs of the country. In this respect, the Brannan plan would probably be more cjosely integrated with the entire farm problem than has been the case with the farm programs in past years." The NAM analysis also lauds the idea of continued high-level production "without resorting to production controls or a program of 'scarcity production.' " Hence, the "greatest, number of farm products would be comparatively free of productions and marketing' controls." Wildlife Grant For State Is $50,000 Washington, Oct. 24—<U P)—The national government has- earmarked the sum of nearly $50,000 for wildlife - projects in Connecticut. The money will be made available during the fiscal year of 1950, according to an announcement today by Interior Secretary J. A. Krug.

THIRD FLOOR What GU 7ki*k Appeal Goes Out For Girl Scout Leaders; Demand Always Exceeds Supply, District Chairman Writes 243 Park Ave. Naugatuck, Conn. October 21, 1949. To the Editor of the .Naugatuck Daily News Dear Sir: I should like to thank the Naugatuck Daily News for its cooperation in printing an excellent Editorial recently in connection with the appeal for funds and in publishing: stories of Girl Scout activities all through the year. The gratitude. Also of all the girls and adults interested in Scouting goes to our many, friends who arc contributing in response to the drive for money to carry on the program. We are proud of our Brownies and Scouts and of the women who so generously offer their time and effort as leaders of. the troops. However, I am afraid that people Rive too little thought to the fact that even if we had a bursting treasury, meeting places galore and—as in fact we always do— scores of girls who want to participate in Scouting, if it were not for the interest and work of our volunteer leaders, there would be NO GIRL SCOUTS. In spite of the formation of one new troop this fall." there are still waiting lists of hopeful little girls, but even worse, we have four organized troops which are leaderless and so cannot meet This disturbing situation can be remedied only by filling the, vacancies with some willing 'Naugatuck women. It has always seemed to me that one of the best ways we may express thankfulness for our own blessings is to pass on some of the good things that have been given to us. Many women today have leisure unknown to their grandparents, training well beyond the three "R's" and special gifts or talents which would qualify them in turn to serve the rising ger.era- tion. The demand for new leaders always exceeds the supply. It's fun to find yourself an active cooperator in your community! I hope that a few women who have one afternoon a week in which they could associate themselves to profitably with the world of the future will call our Organization Chairman, Miss Constance Linskey, 2261. as soon as may be and "Come Along with Us" by offering to be leaders in this worthwhile project! Sincerely yours, EVELYN T. RICE Chairman Naugatuck District of Girl Scouts .
