Patterson, prominent Burt farmer, had the following comments on the trend in thinking in the Dept. of Agriculture so far as farm programs and the future of farming and the nation is concerned, in the Des Moines Register, Saturday, Dec. 1. We think it worth considerable thought, and reprint it accordingly. At the annual meeting of the National Farm Institute in Des Moines, on Feb. 17, 1956, Dr. Sherman Johnson, director of agricultural economics research for the U. S. Department of Agriculture said: 1. The present large carryover of concentrate feeds represents only about four months supply in relation to annual utilization. 2. Our war experiences show how quickly we can shift from surpluses to deficits. 3. Considering the possibility of sever6 drouths again ravaging our grain producing areas and the ever present threat of war, a reserve of only four months supply of grains is really an inadequate amount to provide the nation with needed security in food. Benson Spurns Facts Everybody admits adequate reserves of food is just as essential for national existence as quantities of modern weapons of war. Secretary Benson, v a political appointee, spurns the facts and considered judgment of the learned scientists in his own department because he repeatedly has said his purpose to rid this nation of its reserve of feed grains—which he labels "burdensome surplus" — as soon as he can. On many occasions he has said he wants to get the government out of the grain storage business. I believe this nation can ill afford to follow Benson's advice. All our military authorities appear to agree that this nation is Very vulnerable to a sneak ..and, devastating attack from Communist Russia, with atomic and hydrogen bombs. Our military leaders merely say that we have enormous retaliatory powers. We could destroy the Soviet Union in return. The decision to attack us appears to rest with dictators who are reported to be almost insanely drunk much of the time. Should these evil-minded dictators decide to drop the atomic and hydrogen bombs on our oil installations, our farmers could well be prevented from planting, cultivating or harvesting a crop. They are that dependent on gas and oil. The recent trouble in the area of the Middle East oil fields graphically demonstrated how quickly enormous damage can be done. Horses, Mules Gone Surely common sense shows that this nation needs adequate reserves of feed grains. If disaster befell our great refineries there is no place on earth where we could get the food this country needs — should the American farmer be immobilized during either the planting or harvesting season. The day is gone when the job could be done with horses and mules. .Another point. Our government has acquired its present reserves (surplus) at bargain rates. The farmers were not paid parity price for any of it — it was always less than parity. Yet everybody says, including President Eisenhower, that farmers need and deserve a full parity price in order to have a standard of living like other people. Corn. Wheat Not Obsolete Anything less than parity thus imposes on the farm folks some measure of injustice and poverty. The government never subsidized the farmers when it acquired needed food reserves at less than parity. The farmers were rather subsidizing the government. It is tragic that this fact has been ignored, suppressed and misrepresented. Any examination of the income of tanners, their debts and unavoidable costs proves that farmers cannot afford to furnish this nation with needed reserves of feed grains at 75 per cent of par- Brighten the life of a hard-pf- hearing friend or loved one with 8 Zenith Quality Hearing Aid I Our prices, $50 to $150.10-Day Money-Back Guarantee btfini oa Christmas Day.

All the many implements of war such as planes, guns, bombs, ships, etc., that ,our government has purchased from our big corporations have been paid for on the basis of cost of production, plus a reasonable profit. Furthermore, up to this time most of the billions so spent in the end was lost because the equipment mostly became obsolete. But the corn and wheat that the government acquired — at bargain rates — is not obsolete. It has retained its value. LOCALS Mrs Bessie Palmer has accepted the position of housekeeper companion to Mrs P. J. Hargreaves. Dr. and Mrs Harold Meyer drove to Ogden Sunday to attend a medical board meeting.
