CORN-HOG PROGRAM I am not running for any office I nor am I seeking any appointment but I would gladly go before the Powers-that-be In Washington, D. C., at my own expense and give them my thoughts on economic questions that confront the people of the United States and the world. In my small way I have combined the theoretical with the practical views and there is a difference between the theoretical and the practical side of any question on economics. If you have the correct plan it is just as easy to build a fifty story building as it is a one-story building. I maintain that you cannot produce wealth by cutting down production, and I will prove that to you before I get through with my arguments. The problem in this country is not over-production but under-consumption. In other words, the problem to be solved is buying power and distribution of wealth. The average farmer in this country will kill for his own use from two to four hogs, and you must remember the farmer also has eggs, chickens, ducks and beef to eat. It stands to reason that the city man would eat just as many hogs per family as the farmer if he had the chance or the buying power. We have about 130,000,000 people in this country or about 32,000,000 families. If all the families in the United States consumed two hogs per year, which would be putting it low, that would take about 65,000,000 hogs. Let's look into the soap game. That can be related to the hog question. The consumption of soap in this country is approximately 26 pounds per person a year, and with 130,000,000 people that would take care of about 3,400,000,000 pounds of hogs if converted to soap. That would be the equivalent to about 17,000,000 two hundred pound hogs. You farmers can remember a little ways back when the heavy hogs between 400 and 500 pounds brought the best price--the reason, a. lot of. the hogs were going into the making of soap--and when you raise 400 to 500 pound hogs you Sterling Groceries and Meat Markets No.l --No.2 --No.3 TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY We Deliver $LOO Orders MEAT DEPARTMENT Sterling Hamburger (all meat) Ib 10c Sterling Smoked Ctry.

The consumption of cooking fat, which includes lard and compound, amounts to about 21 pounds per capita. With 130,000,000 people that amounts to about 3,000,000,000 pounds. Reduced to 200 pound hogs that would take care of about 15,000,000 hogs. That makes a grand total of 65,000,000 hogs for meat, 17,000,000 hogs for soap and 15,000,000 hogs for cooking fat, making a total of about 97,000,000 hogs. In other words approximately 100,000,000 hogs can be used and consumed in the United States. The production of hogs last year in the United States amounted to about 61,000,000. We import some Droducts that we cannot raise in this country. Why not bargain with those countries to take a few hogs instead of all manufactured products? Now I have run out of four legged hogs, so I will have to use a few two legged hogs. In 1929 the production of cottonseed oil in America was 1,584,000,000 pounds. As the flood of foreign oils continued to increase on the American market production of cottonseed oil constantly declined. In 1933 it had fallen to 878,000,000 pounds. In other words in five years the amount of oil that you are producing from cottonseed had fallen over 700,000,000 pounds or a decline of almost 50 per cent. Did the price of your,,cottonseed oil go up as you reduced production? It did not. The price of cottonseed oil fell off. In 1929 the price was 8 'cents a pound. The reduction of production did not help the southern farmer because all that resulted was that cheap oil from the orient kept coming in filling up the voids you had tried to bring about by contracting the production of your oil 700,000,000 pounds. At the same time lard declined in price from 14 cents per pound in 1929 to 6% cents in 1933. The price of creamery butter fell from an average price of 44 cents in .1929 to 20 cents in 1933. In other words the competition of these oils coming in tax-free and duty-free, produced in a climate we cannot equal and produced with labor that we cannot match, undersells everything they .compete with in our market. I %vant to ask you farmers a question--"How do you expect to compete with foreign oils and fats that are laid in to the United States seaboard at 2/ 2 cents a pound?" If we had a tax of 5 cents a pound on foreign oils and fats, that would make your hogs 8 cents a pound and you could raise all the hogs that you want to. I also want to make this statement--When you cut the American farmer down to the level MAKILYN PATRICIA MARGARET (Moke) (Battle) (Marg.) BABIES i The greatest little creatures that Goit ever created.

' of the foreign countries and cut down his production, you automatically cut down the jobs and the wages in this country. I am for President Roosevelt 100 per cent. He has invited constructive criticism and I am going to give it to him. The president is not in favor of a tax on cocoanut oil from the Philippines. He argues that this is a part of the United States. Mr. President --that is correct. Now. I want to argue you this want to argue with you this way--Iowa and Nebraska are both a part of the U. S. and you are cutting down production of hogs. You don't mean to tell me that you would ask Iowa to cut down on production of hogs and let Nebraska, produce all they want to. The Philippines are a part cf the United States the same as Iowa and Nebraska. Then mak» them cut down on substitutes of our farm products. Henry Wallace, secretary of agriculture, has sever com- mitted himself as far aa I know, about the tax on foreign oils and fats, but I do think that h5 would be for it if he could speak his mind freely. I want a word with you soap companies and the companies that sell , substitutes for our farm I products from imported ( raw material. How much I of the finished products do you sell the countries ! that you import your raw materials from, in comparison with the volume that you get in the United States? Don't you think that the place you sell your finished products would be a good place to buy your raw materials? I know your argument will be that you can produce soap and from imported raw materials. But stop and consider--with the millions out of jobs, millions half fed. millions of farmers bankrupt, have you accomplished anything by getting- cheap raw materials? Luke B. Miller. U. S. A.
