It sees itself as the Ideal mechanism for a''long-time program which will balance supply with. demand and develop a better system of farming. It mu=t answer—and it lias the biggest chorus of answerers ever gathered under one rcof—tfco catcalls of politicians and the howls of consumers who will be soaked by higher food costs. Some of the winter-spring food prices will represent no more than the higher farm prices which AAA sought, but others will go far higher than that. President Roosevelt, Secretary Wallace, and everybody else is worried by the possible political effect among city voters. Critics are hopefully suggesting that drouth may be as lough on the AAA good weather was on the farm Board. Fanners Back Program But the farmer's attitude will be deceive as to future farm programs You can't dcdge the fact that the various reduction programs have had the enthusiastic support of large majorities and history indicates that the farmers eventually get about what they want fron Washington. About 3,000.000 farmers have become "members" of the AAA programs and the idea here is to maintain contractual relatioaships will them and not to let huge oversupplies pile up. Although many farmers havi been badly hurt by the drouth, to lal farm income for the 1934-Si crop year probably will be highe as a result of high prices, benefl payments--amounting to $500. 000,000 this'year—government cat tie purchases, federal relief, am income from FERA work projects.
