By PORTER M. HEDGE Associated Press Staff Writer Iowa corn-hog officials believe agricultural adjustment must continue in one form or another, even if the supreme court declares the AAA unconstitutonal. Their position as stated today by Chairman R. M. Evans of the Iowa corn-hog committee, and Leslie M. Carl of the board of review, is simply this: That continued adjustment o£ agricultural production to effective demand for farm products is a basic requirement of farm prosperity under existing economic conditions. Must Reshape Program, That for this season, even if the AAA is declared unconstitutional, the farm administration and the farmers must reshape the farm program on constitutional grounds. The concensus of Iowa officials, despite a report to the contrary, is that the decision of the circuit court of appeals in Boston invalidating the AAA will produce no effect on this year's program. They point out first that the supreme court must declare the AAA unconstitutional before collection of processing taxes stops; secondly, that farm administration officials have asserted that the 1935 contracts are binding, regardless of court action. Statements Are Cited. They cited statements of both Secretary Wallace and Farm Administrator Davis to the effect that funds for payment of benefits should come from some other source for this year's program, if the processing taxes are invalidated by the supreme court. Although concerned over the Boston decision, Iowa officials are not without hope that the AAA will win this fight. Evans found comfort in the dissenting opinion of the senior judge in Boston. He also praised the keenness of Solicitor Seth Thomas of Fort Dodge, now in AAA's service. He further cited the AAA amendments designed to bulwark the AAA against constitutionality attacks as another possible means of saving the present program. 200 Suits Filed. Some 200 suits seeking recovery of processing taxes have been filed in the nation, four of them in Iowa. The supreme court's decision in the Boston case which is to be appealed vitally concerns Iowa. Iowa farmers have received $72,000,000 in benefit payments since the AAA has been in operation. This year's program calls for an additional 540,000,000. First payments on half this amount are expected late this month. The rest is due soon after Jan. 1, 1936. More than 18,000 contracts from 20 Iowa counties have been sent to Washington for approval and disbursement of benefit checks. The corn-hog board of review office is putting the finishing touches on .contracts from 63 other counties. Iowa's Stake Listed. Iowa's state in the program from the official view stated briefly is this: The state's prosperity rests largely upon farm prosperity. Demand for farm products has fallen sharply below the farmer's ability to produce in normal years --and still make any money. By adjusting production to a demand that will permit the farmer to make a "reasonable" profit, prices of farm products are maintained at a level high enough that farmers can make money. If production is unlimited, the tendency is to over produce. Surpluses pile up, prices drop and the farmer loses the gains he has made. Cannot Be Shunted. · Iowa officials feel that for these reasons agricultural adjustment cannot be shunted aside--even by a republican administration. They admit the present program isn't all it might "be--that there have been inequities, that there have been delays and that the emphasis has been placed upon reduction rather than proper use of land. They feel, however, that if the present program is riddled until it sinks, another program--of one kind or another--must he drawn, by either this administration or another.
