P U L S E OF THE FARM If you were not one °f the 3,000 people who filled the Shrine temple n Des Moines last Thursday night, when farm talent performed 'The Bohemian Girl," by Balfe, you missed an inspiring spectacle. It is one of the wonders of today that 153 farm folks from 50 coun- ies could be assembled and give so satisfactory a performance of that :uneful opera. It might be called :he blossoming of the effort, begun 14 years ago, to cultivate musical ippreciation among the 4-H girls' lubs, plus six years of study by 'arm Bureau women's groups, coun- .y and state quartets and orchestra contests. Credit to Automobiles. Credit should also be given to the automobile and the good roads, /hicb made possible the innumerable meetings of these groups all over the state, who were studying :he different parts. On the supposition that there would be a full house, we went early but even so, were compelled to take far back seat in the gallery- some disadvantage in hearing but not in seeing as the story unfolded. Meanwhile the ebullience of youth vented itself in club calls from Bremer and Black Hawk to Worth and Woodbury, varied with hog calling- by some strong lunged youth and a ^ t l e r Coo-Boss, Coo-Boss of one from the dairy district and then the lights dimmed and the curtain rose as the orchestra played "I Dreamt That I Dwelt in Marble Halls" and quiet reigned save when an exceptional song or scene impelled the audience to break forth into applause. To one who has lived in Iowa since the 70's and has farmed for nearly half a century this rendition' by country people marks an advance that could not have been imagined in what was called the Centennial Year. Also it would not have been possible without the cultural efforts of the 4-H girls clubs directed from :he extension department of Iowa State college; and the support of Lhe organization known as the Iowa Farm Bureau. I imagine that many a farm man and woman went home with a better appreciation of the opera and a 'eeling of pride that farm folks could acquit themselves so well. ,VHEN FARMERS GET TOGETHER. As in every big convention, there was plenty of wirepulling among .lie voting delegates. A good many groups where, three or four get into a huddle but the choice for a successor of Charlie Hearst finally settled down to a choice between .Johnson and Kline with Johnson in the lead; but Kline was so near him that he was chosen as vice president. It may be truthfully said that this convention of farm folks left less litter to be cleaned up in the hotels than such conventions usually do. The biggest question before most of the farmers in attendanse on Friday afternoon was "How are the roads?" but an alert highway administration plowed them out during the night and main roads were open. The speaker of the house has the same right as any other member of congress to vote on any legislation, but seldom does so except where it is apparent it would be decisive on a close roll call.--TJ n i t e d States News. STATISTICS SHOW WHO BORE TAXES FOR PROCESSING Shepherd Reveals Studies on Margins Established By Packers. By PROF. GEOFFKEY S. SHEPHERD (Agricultural Economics Department, Iowa State College) AMES, Jan. 23.--When the processing tax on hogs of $2.25 a 100 pounds was first levied 2 years ago, there was great argument over who was going to pay the tax. The packers- paid the actual money over to the government, of course, but the question was. who really paid it, in the sense of who really bore the tax. Now that the processing tax has been outlawed by the supreme court, the same question arises, though in reverse form. Who is being relieved of the burden of the processing tax? The question has some complicated aspects, but certain parts of it can be answered definitely, without controversy, by recourse to official government market reports that are published weekly, available to all. Added to Margins. The market reports of the bureau of agricultural economics at Washington show that when the processing tax was first levied, starting at 50 cents a 100 pounds in November, 1933, and gradually increasing to S2.25 by March, 1934, the packers did not pay the tax out of their own pockets. They merely added the amount of the processing tax to their .operating* margins. The operating margin is the difference between the price paid for hogs for each 100 pounds and the price received for the products of that 100 pounds of hog at wholesale. Packers paid the farmer .$2.25 a 100 pounds less,' or charged the consumer the equivalent of $2.25 a 100 pounds more--nobody seemed very sure which. To Full Amount. Broadly speaking, the Chicago packers continued to hold their margins close to ?3 a 100 pounds (S2.25 plus their usual operating margin) throughout the life of the tax. Some days thc margin was wider, some days it \va» narrower, but on the average the Chicago packers widened their margin by roughly the full amount of the tax. Authorities in the AAA state that packers in the east widened their margins less than the full amount of thc tax, but the official figures show that the packers at Chicago widened their margins by the full amount. What happened when the tax was discontinued on Jan. 6, 1936, by order of the supreme court? The same official statistics tell an Interesting story. They show that early last December, the packers apparently jumped the gun on the court decision and began to pay up than in a year closer pork. In to tie wholesale value of Packer Margins Drop. the first week in December, packer net margins at Chicago dropped, from 83 cents the week before, to 46 cents. In the second week in Dscember they fell to 37 cents, in the third to less than nothing (to minus 6 cents), and in the fourth week to minus 12 cents. In the first week of January. 1936, they fell to minus 23 cents. The total margin, in other words, was 52.25 minus 23 cents, or $2.02. Then came the supreme court decision, and the processing; tax was wiped out. What happened to margins? On Monday, the day of the decision, they were $2.43. On Tuesday they fell to $1.81. During the remainder of the week, they declined to $1.15, which is within 40 cents of their normal level. More recent figures are not yet available, but it seems likely that the narrowing will continue until the margin is no wider than normal. Statistics Throw Light. One thing, then, is clear. When the tax was applied packers widened their margins by roughly, the amount of the tax. When the tax was removed, they narrowed their margins again, to within 40 cents of normal during the first week, and possibly to normal by now. When the processing tax was abolished and the packers narrowed their margins, did they narrow them by lowering prices to the consumer, or by raising prices to the farmer? The statistics throw some light on this question also. The day after the supreme court decision, hog prices advanced sharply, although unevenly, at the various markets. One would not expect them to rise the full $2.25 because the packers had already jumped the gun and narrowed their margins about $1.00 a 100 pounds before the supreme court decision was announced. Conclusions Are Drawn. At Chicago hog prices rose about 70 cents. This rise called forth a great increase in shipments of hogs. Total receipts of hogs at the seven leading markets in the week ended Jan. 11 were more than twice as large as in the previous week, and over 40 per cent greater the corresponding week earlier. This great increase in receipts bore down heavily on the price of hog products at wholesale. The first day after the decision, this wholesale price declined only 5 cents. But by the end of the week the wholesale price had fallen 78 cents. The price of hogs held about steady. In summary, then, the market statistics for the 'past few weeks jw that (1) packers narrowed their margins by nearly the full amount of the tax, (2) hog prices rose strongly the day after the tax was abolished. (3) this rise stimulated a great increase in hog shipments, which shortly f4) depressed the prices of hog products at wholesale, while (5) the price of hogs, after its initial, rise, remained about steady.

Wages of Sin Pay Boost for 19 Year- Old Chicago Youth CHICAGO, Jan. 23. --B--For 19 year old Harry Cutseres the wages of nin was a raise in pay today. In the police court of suburban Wilmette he admitted yesterday his story that two men robbed him of ?205 in his employer's fruit market was a hoax staged with the aid of Robert Leonard, 19, another clerk. But W. A. Bihler, their employer, pointing- out that the repentant youths sent the money to him by messenger the next day. refused to prosecute- He said: "I am going to lake both boys back to work for me. They have never been short * nickel in their accounts. Cutaeres has been with me for the longest time, four and one half years, so I am going to raise his pay from .$12 to .$14 a week." All we can honestly say about that "coming American boom" is that we hope it doesn't turn, out to be of the "faw-down-and-go" variety.--Worcester (Mass.) Evening Gazette.
