BROOlARfFOR FIXING OF PRICES 7 ormer Iowa Senator Urges Cost of Production on Farm Products. WASHINGTON, May 8. UP)-Fixed cost of production prices for arm commodities and direct removal of exportable surpluses from rocessing plants, was advocated .oday by Smith W. Brookhart, former Iowa senator now with the ag- adjustment administration. Due to agitation from the .grain belt and southern cotton and tobacco country, Brookhart has devised a definite, fixed price plan which would give the farmer cost of production plus four, per cent interest on his capital investment. This price would be determined annually by the secretary of agriculture during the produce growing season. Brookhart's proposal could be written into the Agricultural Adjustment act, he said. The cost of production guarantee, as described by Brookhart, provides that the secretary of agriculture determine for each crop year the. average cost of production to growers of corn, cotton, wheat,.oats, tobacco, rice and livestock during the preceeding five year period and also determine the financial investment in such commodities, using the official census data. Starts Wednesday! OAKIE'S a Scream! TRACY'S a Panic! Together They're a RIOT! Spencer TRACY JackOAKIE ta ,, "Looking For Trouble" Cnds "COME on MARINES" Tuesday: "Registered NURSE" Items of Cost. The items of cost would be estimated on the same principles as in the manufacturing industry, considering the individual farm as a business unit, and determined on its individual production, including a fair compensation to farm owners for management and compensation of themselves and their families, plus depreciation allowances. Each purchaser of farm, products would be required to pay the fixed price for that percentage of crops consumed at home. Buyers would give farmers a countersigned government receipt for that percentage of tne crops estimated to be for export. . Millers, packers, elevators, dealers and other farm commodity buyers would be required then to turn over to a government agency the export percentage of all crops. The government would dispose of the surplus in world markets and redeem the receipts given the farmers at postof- fices at the net rate realized minus costs. 20 Per Cent Exported. Brookhart figures that about 20 per cent of the wheat crop would be exported, 10 per cent of pork products, one per cent of beef products, one and one half per cent of corn and oats. Cotton exports would run to more than 50 per cent, tobacco to 30 per cent and rice to 25 per cent. In other words, a farmer selling corn would be guaranteed cost of production on 98% per cent of his corn, and the world price for the rest. Loans on the export receipts could be arranged through post- offices. In the case of sales by one farmer to another for feed, seed and breeding purposes, the provisions of the proposed law would not apply. On livestock export percentages, the estimates would be made at packing plants and the government would pay processing costs on this portion of the livestock slaughter.

SCHOOLCHILDREN TAUGHT SAFETY; ACCIDENTS DOWN Campaign Constant Stimulus to Keep Students Alert and On Lookout Virtual elimination of automobile accidents in which Mason City school children's, negligence is a factor is the happy result of the extensive safety program put into practice by local school authorities with, effective co-operation from the Lions club and police department. This safety campaign is not a periodical affair. It is founcted upon a permanent base, serving as a constant stimulus and keeping students of every age alert and on the lookout fbr the safety of others as themselves. Taught Safety. From the time a child enters kindergarten until he completes his education the principles of "safety are continually instilled in him with the result that whether crossing a busy street or driving an automobile, he does it the safe way. Even before a youngster can read, the safe way of crossing a street is dramatized for him. He is showi. the danger of darting out from between parked cars in the middle of a block and is taught to cross'streets only at intersections and not .until he has looked both ways for automobiles. These safety rules are kept fresh in the children's minds by regularly scheduled instruction and a monthly poster and pamphlet servire supplied by the National Safety, council from its headquarters in Chicago. Get Co-Operation. Further co-operation is obtained from local moving picture houses where safety films/are shown. Sponsored by the Lions club, the students' safety- patrol which has been active at the busy intersection near school buildings has been very successful. The club furnished heavy coats and overshoes for the boys chosen for patrol duty during the winter. The effect of this well organized safety system has been far reaching, teaching parents as well as children to play safe.
