SEE YOUR DOCTOR THEN SEE US Aii Appeal to Congress from 2,300,000 American Farm Families We are farmers—the producers of soybeans and cotton —ond we are taking Hirs' means of asking you to do •omethirtg we believe to be right ond fair. We are asking you to repeal the Federal anti-margarine laws. CLASS LEGISLATION Trip anti.margarine legislation is CLASS legislation. If ii unfair •nd if is un-Americ'an. It singles out for special taxation a product which is made almost entirely from the crops we grow—41.5% of all fat used in margarine is soybean oil and 47.4% it cottonseed oil. Msrgarina i» th« ONLY domestic product which is singled out end faxed for fhe benefit of * competitive product—buffer. We «r« the ONLY farmers discriminated against for the benefit of another group of farmers. MARGARINE—A HEALTHFUL AMERICAN FOOD When Federal anti-margarine legislation was First passed years ago, the claim was made that the laws were necessary to protect public health and to prevent the fraudulent sale of margarine as butter. Today, there is no dispute about the fact that margarine is a tine, nutrihous product — «i wholesome and nutritious as butter, hurlhermore. the Federal Food and Drug Laws guarantee the propor labeling and standard of purity of ALL food product., including margarinex * THERE IS NO RIGHT TO COLOR Some enemies of margarinsxsay th» reel issue it color. They • rgue that buHer has a RIGHT to prevent margarine from being colored yellow by the manufacturer. How then car, they explain the fact lhat most BUTTER is artificially colored yello^ without penalty? Moreover, buttor is colored VARIOUS SHADES of yellow to meet consumer tastes ?n particular areas. Because of the 10-cerf per pound tai on colored margarine, most margarine must be bleached. The oils used in making it are naturally yellow. This color has to be talcen out. We have then a situation in which the color must be REMOVED rom one food product to avoid the payment of a heavy federal tax. Its competitor can—and DOES—use artificial color freely. Buffer is )h e ONLY food product which lays claim to a par- t.cular color. If it has a preemptive right to yellow, does not lard have the same right f 0 white? Does not cotton have the same right «m. ,? ? • ii""; 1 M ,° re r ^ on " nd °* er »Vn«ie«c competitors e»m» along? Buffer, color argument doe« not mate DAIRY FARMER HOODWINKED -^ We fiove no quarrel with Ihe doiry formers. Many of us ore dairymen M our own right, and we do not feel thnf repeal of the anti-margarine lows wJII hurl the dairy Industry, When the dairyman sells hli mllfc as butter, he gels the lowest price for it. Ac a result, over Ihe year*, Ihe production of butter has been declining steadily. Here Is what a dairyman, Merrir Nash, writing in the Western Dairy Journal for January, says: "Butter li as antiquated as a price stabilizer »n Ihe dairy industry as Is the 'surrey with the fringe on top' in the automobile industry . . . We cannot get results by plodding along with butter, which as a price stabilizer Is o sinking ,sMp If ever there wax one, 1 .' THE GROWING SOYBEAN INDUSTRY We feel that Congress is well informed about cotton and the 1,600,000 farms m 18 states which produce it. Wo are not so certain that you know about the rising importance of the soybean industry particularly in the Middle West. Approximately 700,000 farmers raise soybeans. In 1938. the soybean crop was valued at ONLY 40 MILLION DOLLARS Last year, it amounted to over 700 MILLION DOLLARS. The principal soybean states are OHIO, IOWA, INDIANA. ILLINOIS, MINNE«?J£i^ ND MISSOU RI- IN ILLINOIS, THE SOYBEAN CROP WAS WORTH MORE THAN ALL THE STATE'S DAIRY PRODUCTS. ANTI-MARGARINE LAWS INFLATIONARY We know that you are well aware of the consumers' interest in the repeal of these laws. .. T 1 " anti-margarine laws are inflationary. They increase th« cost of living. They force millions of housewives to t«lt» time and trouble in coloring margarine. In 1947, it is estimated lhat housewives wasted about 14,000,000 pounds of margarine which stuck to the sides of the mixing bowl. There is not one single valid reason for the continuance of this legislation. Bills for Hi* ropsa! of the antr.maraarino laws are pending in MM House and Senate. We urae an eorly hearing on Hw measures and that the House and Senate be given an opportunity to vote on the issue. If this opportunity Is given and if the issue Is under- J!," " r " tonfide ' lt ""»» «•«*• Iniquitous lawt will be THE FIRST NATIONAL, IN BLYTHEVILLE The Only National Bank In Mississippi County ^.CCOOH^J Menl llrnifiis . . .
