Economist Declares United States Must Sell Products Abroad. AMES, March 6. UP)--Tariffs scaled downward to re-establish foreign trade is the ultimate answer to the problems of an overproduc- tiye agriculture, Dr. T. W. Schultz of Iowa State colege economics department asserted here today. The emergency production curtailment under the agricultural adjustment administration will never by itself efface the surpluses that pile up yearly, the economist .predicted. Dr. Schultz, with a group of farm economists here, has been requested by the AAA to work out a long time national program of production control for corn, hogs, beef and dairy cattle. Farm Plant Too Large. "Our farm plant is too, large for our present populaton and in spite of any reasonable curtailment will continue to be too large unless we re-establish foreign trade," he said today. -· . . . . . . . Unless this foreign trade is re-established, Dr. Schultz avowed, a general restoration of prosperity will not benefit agriculture to any marked extent. With four fifths of the nation's rural population producing foodstuffs, he declared, not more than 20 per cent of the agricultural setup would profit by industrial prosperity. Such industrial' prosperity, he believes, would effect only a slight increase in consumption when compared with the present production of farm commodities. Plight of Agriculture. The plight of agriculture even before the industrial depression of 1929 justifies this contention, Dr. Schultz declared. "Agriculture was indeed sick long before 1929," he asserted. "Depression, especially among those farmers dependent upon foreign outlets for the sale of their products, had been more or less chronic since the war. Unrest among the farmers, not to say a spirit of revolt, grew out of this condition." A foreign outlet for food products, then, Dr. Schultz, argues, is the only solution to the farmers' problems. And he is aware of difficulties that a readjustment of tariffs would bring; but eventually, he believes, this readjustment would raise the national standard of living.
