WIN THE WAR (yes they worked united- ly- foe Freedoni and thfcir country's ; welfare), they did not realize what the soothsayers of the Republican Party are in- • cessantly dinning in their ears, during. /this campaign. This is the alarm they are sounding — "FARMERS, YOU HAyE BEEN REGIMENTED!

''.Will 1 nothing be kept guarded and . used in ,sacred trust any more for the ' Weliare' bf ? all the people? The tendency of -the-'Republican -Administration seems all the opposite way. * "Do peopl^'realize "the meaning to , jtheir-f^a&^bf: :the Dixon-Yates Bill; in- te'ridVd '~ffaf M^ife opening wedge to gain control, of the Atomic Energy developed by', the, Government at such 'vast' ex- 1 pense; -andi'Vieutralize the Government's coRtrol: of the Tennessee Valley Authority? How will the farmers and small man: ufact\iiv?ffl/j|be able to avoid "regimen- . .tatiQn.^^Mitifin.control of..t.he. Power Resources of the Nation is taken over by •a few -great corporations? • ? ';,"Regimentation" — it is a scary word, arid refers to a condition all men animat- . ^ed . by the,, natural desire for freedom gladly would avoid. But somehow order must be, deyised and maintained in all 'the 'relafionsnlps of mankind, if they expect to reacH' : 'and maintain such a high standard -of • civilization as America, enjoys today. • * Thus it'is that, no matter if called ' by some other name more sweet, "rcgi-' mentation" prevail^ in the operation of aU our gfeat mining, lumbering, manufacturing and commercial and transportation enterprises, and in the great professions, if their practicioners expect to succeed. And "regimentation" is very, very, well understood by all our young men and women engaged in the armed services to defend the American way and preserve our freedoms. , Farmers, however, are .to be re-in- stated'into the speHally'privileged class they' occupied before, the ; Panic of 1929 ' and ensuing ."hard times'* of th<S 1930's. If • ' : • the • pdlicytmakers • of the Republican Administration '. have their way — AND THEY ARE LIKELY TO, UNLESS WE ELECT MORfi DEMOCRATS TO CON- "'- , GRESS TO SAFEGUARD THE WEL- FAliE OF THE PEOPLE — the farrners will be de-'regimented and allowed to sell their productions "at full parity in the market-place." "The statement (referring to the speech made at Kasson, Minnesota, by Candidate Eisenhower during the 1952 campaign) about 90% and 100% referred to prices in the market place," explained ;Sel'retary Benson on the occasion of his visit to KossUth County oh October 7th. . By 1956, unless the farm bill providing lor ;a siiding-scale .of support, recently passed by the 1 RepUblica'n Administration be iamended or replaced, the Secretary of Agriculture may lower the government price guarantee on basic crcjps down to 75% ,of parity. , ' • : BIG QUESTION? In substance, dbes this mean anything else, other than 'that, for all practical purposes, the farmer will be forced tOj sell his production^ ON THE OPEN, SPECULATIVE, MARKET? Yes, , ; indeed, he. will.tHus be permitted to "help : ' himself." ..' ...-..' . During the "hard times" for farmers which started in,'the early 1920's, after > World War I; and when, incidentally, the Republican Administration under Warren G. Harding was beginning to go, full "' blast,- oh another "give-away" program of government resources as illustrated by Teapot Dome -Naval Oil Reserves; again farmers had raised a surplus and were forced to. sell their grains and live stock on the open market at ruinous prices. It was the beginning of the causes leading to farm foreclosures by the thousands and the ultimate wrecking of America * and world economy which prevailed from 1929 and through most of the 1930's. Wallace's Fanner, then ' edited by Henry'Wallace made the striking observation, proven by statistics, that'a 10% surplus of farm prodiictibn in any commodity would result in a 40% drop in its market-price. The practice of our most successful farmers has always been, therefore, to hold over in their own bins and cribs, un , extra year's crop, against a , time of possible crop' shortage from drought, floods, storms and insect pests. This same thrifty idea has been, in turn adopted by our government in its "ever-normal granary" plan. But now the gbvernment havin storage enough farm commodities to last the country two or three months. What, a blessing and a safeguard this extra supply of foodstuffs can be, particularly for use in relieving - hlmger. both here and abroad, and enabling people to get strongly on their ' own feet "and *be self-sustaining. But the Administration views the supply of farm products with great alarm; and, in effect, proposes to penalize American farmers for being efficient. Farmers are not rated In the same class with manufacturers of war-munitions nor have they any of their safeguards, even when a war is on. THE DANGER to Farmers in the proposed sliding'-scalc system of government guarantees, as low as 75%, if the Secretary of Agriculture should so direct, is that EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN, IN RESPECT TO PRICES FOR FARM PRODUCTS, THAT ANY "FLOOR" ALWAYS TENDS TO BECOME THE ACTUAL •GEILINGI .'• Can even a Secretary, of Agriculture! be. so ' Wise, in a frumper-crop year as to be able to establish a safe "floor" of farm prices for the following year? The answer 'is — NO! Witness what is happening in tile fifteen drouth-stricken states south of us. ; ' Does past Experience show that farmers faced with low prices will raise smaller crops? Again, the answer is — NO! Let us concede the desirability of farmers adapting their production practices to consumer demands; BUT LET US HAVE 'THE DESIRABLE CHANGES MADE . GRADUALLY, AND WITH FARMER UNDERSTANDING AND 'HEARTY COOPERATION — NOT BY HOLDING OVER FARMERS THE CLUB of iowsr^and^stjl.1, lower prices!, All Farm. Experience proves that sooner or later any surplus of essential farm products, due to the_ hazards of the weather and increased consumptive demands, becomes used up. VOTERS WHO SINCERELY BELIEVE THAT PARITY. PRICES FOR FARMERS, SAFEGUARDED BY A MINIMUM GUARANTEE OF NOT LESS THAN 90%, WILL BE'BEST FOR THE WHOLE COUNTRY, ALSO —. VOTE DEMOCRATIC NOVEMBER 2nd.
