Farmer Losing , *L * . ^ O Ham and Eggs Feeling Competition By SAM UAWSON NEW VOftK,' Dec. 31 Uf) — Plunging prices of ham ahd eggs —deiight/ul for the city dweller, painful for the farmer—symbolize the end of a golden era 6n the farm. For eight years the farmer has had the price advantage. Competition to sell surplus foods is ending that, and bringing the issue of the government's role in managing competition to the bitter stage. The things a farmer must buy have receded In p r I c e slowly, some not at all. The things he has to sell have dropped sharply, or are supported precariotisly by the government, currently almost out of funds earmarked for that purpose. , Now the farmer, particularly if he sells eggs and hogs, is asking: "Why the spread between what t get for my products and" what the grocer gets for them later on?" : Medium quality eggs, selling for 20 cents a dozen on some Midwest farms, sell In New York at 35 cents wholesale, and at New York chain groceries at 49 cents—more than double what the farmer is getting. His prices dropped when the government recently ended its support price for eggs of 45 cents a dozen, New York basis. , Later on, the government Will support prices again, .at 37 cents here. In the Interim^ the egg market at, the Midwest farm level has gone to pot. Chicken farmers are clamoring for the government to put Us new 75 percent of parity plan into effect. Unrestraint! Competition, aggravated by uncertainty, is ruining them, they contend. Cornbelt farmers say buyers are getting their hogs as low as 13 cents a'pound. The price in Chicago is 16% cents. The price of Smoked ham of popular, nationally advertised bands is 49 cent's a pound today in New York chain groceries. . This ham, however, came from hogs purchased some time, back at considerably more than 13 cents a pound. Nevertheless, the farmer, noting the difference between 13 and 49 cents, asks how come. So, let's look at the middleman's account of that story. First,-the Chicago price of hogs has dropped 30 percent from its August peak,. But the price of smoked ham also has fallen about 30 percent in price at. the retail stores. The spread has held about same. , • Eggs in New York cost 15 cents More a dozen retail than at wholesale last June. Ttoday they cost 13 Mi cents more at the chain stores than at the wholesale percentagewise. The middleman contends that the- price of the farm product is only a part of. the total cost. Processing, transporting, distributing costs remain high. Labor gets' as much or ipore. Freight rates are up. Rents and other overhead are as high or higher. Competition whittles at retail prices. But it also .puts more, emphasis on costly packaging, ad- vertlping, premiums / and come-ons. The public demands -more service, better quality. It wants tjeliacies the year around, rather than in, their season, as once contended it. All of this, the middleman contends, will keep the price spread between the farm and the table greater than it used to be. But the farmer isn't convinced, and some congressmen from the farm belt say they are going to look into the matter next month. P._,Sister of Man Stabbed To Death Seeks $15,000 CHICAGO, Dec. 31, UP)—The sister of. a 31-year-old Joliet laborer who was stabbed to death in a Chicago tavern has sued for $15,000 damages under the state dram shop act. .
