Davis, ministrntor of the AAA told a group termers and business men in Des „...j Juno 2. dministralor Davis had just return- froni a two-months; study of con- ions in Europe as they affect the (]el for American farm products. "We must recognize that we need n-e our foreign trade^ and that ign commerce'' to flourish on a rmanent basis must be on a sound ndation of two-way trade and mu- benefit," said Mr. Davis. "That iciple cannot be dodged. We must J every effort to secure that freer merce, to bring peace out of the omic war that afflicts the world we must also recognize that do not have that desired condi- ,i yet. In the meantime we must I -t the economic exigencies that do »; whether we like them or not. til they are corrected we must live Hi them. Until our foreign outlets restored wo must help the Amer- farmer to co-operate with his 6 hbor in a concerted effort to shift farming operations with an eye (he effective foreign and domestic rket. "Four propositions, all of vital im- rlancc to agriculture, have been or being discussed seriously. .... first of these propositions, the •o-price system', provides for united production with the surplus il abroad at whatever price will it, the difference between do- ...c and world prices being made lo exporters by government sub- y. However, farmers cannot ext to recapture world markets in the volume under conditions that ex- ioday. The export market on which fully depends is largely closed. "Export subsidies may be useful at : to meet special conditions with ial crops. An export plan worked I for Pacific Northwest wheat and „ do so again. But dependence that principle as a major part of r farm program can only lead us ck into disaster. I am convinced at the double-jointed policy of ex- and subsidized exports advo­ cated by some, is utterly contradictory and unworkable, because other nations can exclude too. If we should load the Normandic or the Queen Mary with subsidized wheat or lard and head it for Europe at full speed, the nations there would meet it at the dock with restrictions amounting to embargoes already in effect." The second of these propositions is the policy of exclusion, of nation in­ solation supported by higher tariffs or quotas or import licenses. Davis declared that Mr, of a national policy MORTY M.E. KALLMAN, M.D. Physician and Surgeon Office Over Luhman & Sanders exclusion can only be disasterous for farmers. The third of the farm propositions has to do with the criticism of the agricultural programs under the AAA on the ground that they are based upon the economics of scarcity. "I think I speak what is in the minds of the farmers of this country," said Mr. Davis, "when I say that they are strong for the economics of plenty— but they want it practiced clear across the board in the business life of the nation as well as by the farmers. Why should the farmer be asked to stand alone among the producers of the nation, operating to the limit of his plant's capacity and throwing his output on the market for what it will bring and then turn around to buy what he needs from industries that really understand the economics of scarcity and know how to apply it because they have practiced it so long?"The fourth policy I mentioned the present vigorous effort of government to restore trade on a sound and basis. "Foreign commerce to flourish and continue must be built on a foundation of two-way trade and mutual benefit—not a forced one-way trade and a one-way benefit. Our government has been for some time promoting a system of reciprocal trade agreements designed to accomplish a better balance of trade throughout the world and to free commerce by reducing or eliminating the trade barriers which penalize the world today. These agreements are not strictly bilateral, but are generalized throughout the world, through the judicious use of the most - favored - nation principle. This generalization of benefits is mutual, of course, with the other party to the agreement giving us the general benefit of trade concessions it has made or may subsequently make to other nations." Everybody knows that apple pie is. good 'cause everybody has tasted It, but a lot of people haven't tasted some of the fine wares of some of our stores •cause they haven't been let in on the secret They can be though through advertising.
