What the -boar! snid to tho cotton tarn;or, H can, oC course, say to tho producers ot wlmat, corn n n d other farm product!!. Proponents of the McNary-llaugen :illl argued for a system ol' price Jixii-j,- w h i c h was opposed by the Coolidpe .··.dmlnistration. President Hoover i:;is left it to the Vann i Hoard to decide iiow far it s h o u l d go In the mutter o;: fixing prices. The board talcoa tha .'iew that it is m e r e l y s t a b i l i x i u g price:'. By regulating pro' ductlon now it will have an even | greater effect on a g r i c u l t u r a l prices. "Th Federal Karm Board cannot protect fanners when they deliberately over-plant," f. tya t-he .statement of the Fur in Boarl. "\\'!uil the board w i l l do to help · ho markotinB of next year's crop w i l l depend u p o n what tho farmers do at phuitlng'time." The board roeoinineuth* that tho s o u t h t i ' n farmer.-i p l a n t no cotton next spring until tli'T have first provided enough acre-age for a reasonable supply ol! honse-rai «ed lood and teed and that no land ho planted in cotton which has not produced "at least one- third of a bale, por aero on the average o£ the last five years." Members of she, board defend their position in a d v i s i n g reduced production by arpfiiinr that loans from Federal sources c n n o n l y bo made on a k n o w n value ol' the crop and t h a t it there. IK execs;, production th* price will tali to Biioh a point that f u n d s cannot be advanced in sufficient q u a n - tity to keep \\v tho price. In other words, t h e w a r n i n g from the Federal Farm Board litoraily means that prices cannot 'no maintained artificially and that die taw at supply and demand Is f u l l y recognized as a potent factor. Thu purpose oC the l e n d i n g policy was to p r e v e n t disorderly marketing--the d u m p i n g of p r o d u c t s at Iow-or prices t i t a n they could demand if held for m a r k e t nt subsequent and more f a v o r a b l e occasions. Over-production, however, cannot, be cured by merely w i t h h o l d i n g products f r o m market--they imuit he withhold at tho source so thai the world's s u p p l y ' c a n be estimated w i t h i n reasonable bounds. It w i l l viol always bo possible to make an estimate- because, oi' tho changing weather conditions and the damage to crops, but in the caso of cotton which is not perishable from year to y-jar, the amount of products held in atorpgo or carri'od over can bo counted upon' to take cnro ot any diminished supply in the succeeding year. The Farm Board has not said any- t h i n g a b c u t iver-production iu other commodities, but it is now expected that some p!:ins in that respect w i l l also bo d e v e l o p e d so that a l l the .stiibilizniu processes both as they re- l a t e to o r d e r l y marketing and excess p r o d u c t i o n ii'iiy be coordinated, The F a t n i Board is working along w i t h o u t a c . i u r t to guide it because nearly evury problem being taken up is new, iu t l : i t KCIISC- tliat tlie Govern- m e n t has n e v e r before- taken such an a c t i v e part u Hie m a r k e t i n g of agri- j iMil lira! pn iliu-t,--.
