The permanent farm program with its sliding scale support prices ranging from 60 to 90 per cent of parity is being backed by the Farm Bureau as a "compromise between farmers, legislature and all other groups," according to Earl M. Dean, president of the Cerro Gordo county Farm Bureau. "Every farmer wants a 100 per cent parity program," Dean explained Friday in a letter mailed to farmers throughout the county. "But how is the most practical way to get the largest net income over the years and be fair to all groups? "In order to succeed over a long time the program must have the without being regimented into doing so. The secretary of agriculture is authorized in the act to support prices of livestock at not to exceed 90 per cent of parity according to Public Law 897.

It must be accomplished with the least possible regimentation and control, operating under a free enterprise to get best results in a democratic society." Recommended Parity The Farm Bureau was the first organization to recommend the parity base theory, Dean stated in his letter. Its efforts since have been toward the development of a permanent farm program to replace those enacted on a temporary basis, particularly during the war years. "We have realized fully that it is difficult to write a program that will meet all conditions," the letter admits, "and we know that it must be revised from time to time to correct errors that may have been made in the development of a program and to fit changing conditions."

Dwane Hurst. All are students of the North Central Bible Institute at Minneapolis. Dean explained operation of the present program as follows: 130% Called Surplus "Sliding scale support prices are written into the present law and provide for not more than 90 per cent and not less than 60 per cent of parity. The formula is included in the act that was passed by the last session of congress and provides that when the supply is more than 130 per cent of any crop, the parity price shall not be less than 60 per cent. "The act includes a table which outlines definitely the price at which parity shall be set. This ranges all the way from 60 to 90 per cent and is operated as follows: For instance, suppose the country had a surplus of 130 per cent of any crop and not enough corn; the support price on corn would be 90 per cent but on the other crops, the price support is set according to the supply of basic commodities between 60 per cent and 90 per cent, according to law. It is hoped that this would encourage a shift of production from the surplus commodity to the commodity which was needed. May Set 150% "If surpluses become excessive the law provides for rigid controls if voted by farmers themselves. If voted, parity can be as high as 90 per cent and not less than 72 per cent. Also, if at any time the nation needs a particular commodity, the secretary of agriculture may set support prices as high as 150 per cent of parity to get production of that crop and thereby shift production to that crop. "You will note the price has already been announced for potatoes at 60 per cent of parity for next year. Undoubtedly, Secretary Brannon's idea was to discourage a large production of potatoes and shift to some other crops. This would help cut down our hundred million dollar loss and help eliminate consumer criticism. \ "When 90 per cent of parity is guaranteed across the board, out- Radios Installed in Charles City Taxis Charles City—Charles City cab riders may get static along with their rides hereafter, but they will get their cab sooner.
