He claim- s The Senatorial report covers tile ed President TI nman made it easy j entire field of a long range farm program. H finds, in the price question, that the old parity plan is too stiff to keel) up with the constantly changing farm picture. "For helping to stabilize the farming industry, the parity-income concept holds greater significance than parity prices." Basically, the equal-income plan resembles the guaranteed annual wage plans for labor. The fanners fair share of the national income would be determined, and prices would be supported on a constantly changing basis to keep farm Income at this fair level. Incomes Low, Benefits High "Price support on the parity-income idea would result in payin?, the largest benefils to farmers in times of loxvest income," the report says. ,.^^- Tile Senators considered and re- ' '^Btoted a plan to operate the new * program by fixing a flat parity- ineome figure for all farmers. Under this method, for example, farmers would b« assigned 15 per cent of the national income. If they fell below that figure, every farmer in the country would gel an equal payment io restore him. This, the Senators felt, would ba unfair if cotton farmers had a bad year while Midwestern dairymen cleaned up. Instead, the report favors giving each product a set share of all income. Tobacco, for example, mig;u be sssigned one per cent.

With a large supply, the price would be allowed to drop. When supplies fall off, the price would rise. Parity prices would be retained under the new plan, but only as H measuring stick. The Senate subcommittee feels the equal-income plan would avoid ' the piling up of surpluses whjc.i j come when good crops for a period ] of several years are coupled wi f ,li || i high support prices. Farmers, the. reiKirt adds, can also be given more reedom in choosing what they will produce.

By connecting two or more telephones t,o a lirfe, several families get service, instead of just one. , That's important in these days of telephone equipment shortages. Here in Blytheville, we connected 790 new telephones last year. F!ut the demand for service lias been the heaviest in history. More than 325 people are waiting for telephones now. We expect to start work early this spring on a two-story addition to the telephone building to make room for more dial equipment. When construction is complete, dial equipment for almost 500 new telephones will he installed. This equipment will not only permit connecting more telephones, but will help handle all local telephone calls faster. But wire anil cable arc our most urgent needs in Blythcville. We nre adding new wire anil cable just as last as it can be made available. I3ut meantime party lines help us bring service to as many as possible with our present outside facilities. Later on, when still more equipment and materials arc available, we can expand the telephone system here so that everyone can have the kind and amount of service he wants. In the meantime, you'll find party-line service is good service. It's neighborly service—at its best when the thoughtful custom of "sharc- and-share-alike" is observed by everyone on the line. In party-line terms this means extending to the other fellow little courtesies that you'd like extended to you.
