(NEA).-- Opposition to the Marshall Plan in the United States comes principally from two sources--some of 1 he'Republicans in Congress, and tome businessmen. i Public opinion polls show a ma' iont in iavor of the plan. Most 'newspapers have given it support. ' Labor unions are lor it. save tlie extreme lelt-wmgers. who are niere- 1\ parroting the Communist line I on iUissian foivign policy. Republican opposition is a little difficult to figure. In final analysis, it seems to boil down to die thins:. Spending money on the Marsiiall Plan may deprive Ihc Republicans ol the honor 01 cutting income tax rates. Oh yes, 1948 is an election year. I When the showdown comes, 1 thc-reiorc. many Washington ob! -tnen believe that the fate of the Mai shall Flan will be determined not on its merits but the r.mcunt that taxes can be cut-- o\er the President's veto, if necessary--and tffe budget total thai v,ill make the Republican record ior economy Jook good. It's as simple as that. Opposition ol American business men, \\hich naturally influences URBANA, 111., Jan. 3.-prices arc at record levels because of high consumer demands for meat and other animal products in the country and of t he- poor 1947 crops of wheat in western Europe and of corn in the United States. This explanation of high prices was made by L. J. Norton, acting head, department of agricultural economics, University of Illinois, as he posed the key question for 1948: Will these basic causes continue to operate? In partial answer to thc question, Norton stated that short supplies did not cause, high prices for meat animals in this country. Per person supplies have been laiger than for many years. This large supply was caused by feeding up the large 19*6 corn crop and by liquidation of cattle herds. Late in 1947 the short corn crop led to early marketings of 194 spring pigs. Little Meat Exported Nor did exports cause high meat prices, the economist asserted. In fact, very little meat is being exported. "Our prices for meat arc too high for other countries to use scarce dollar exchange to buy s », vu A U iuf»*..., -----. r-«ii« rt o meat High meat prices simply a t International Business College reflect the huge demand caused thinks apples for teachers are old bv the high current income of hat.

"This means more- small grains, more legumes, and more use of the minerals neeticd to get food clover crops on nnmy soils. Farming is a long-time business and thc world will need gram and bovbeans in 1950 as well as in 1IM8. '"The question of prices for the more important Illinois farm products therefore depends on two things in 1948: Thc put-turn of basic crops and continuation of high consumer income in the united States. It is well to remember that periods of high prices such as those now prevailing have in thc past been rather short. They are the result of rather uncommon conditions winch do not generally persist for any great length of time." Orchids for Teacher FORT WAYNE. Ind.

"Supplies will be shorter because of the poor 1947 crop--about one- fourth smaller than in 1947. But it takes more than short supplies to make current high prices for meat animals. It takes a very high level of demand. "Will demand-consumer income, slacken in 1948? The present indications are that it will not--at least in the early months of the year. Demands for all sorts ol capital goods--the most fluctuating element in our production- are too strong. But periods of inflation with such high investments in capital goods have never lasted for long periods. Sooner or later the present boom will slacken--perhaps before the end of 1948. Then prices ot meat animals will decline. Short Crops . "The other major factor in the present high level of Illinois farm products is the short 1947 crop in two major areas--the u. b. corn crop and the western European wheat crop--caused by unfavorable weather. Will we have two such crop disasters in 1948? It is very unlikely. With better crops in" one or both of these kev crops, grain prices will be lower at the end of 1948 than at present. . 10 "\ normal corn crop in 1948 will mean a much more favorable ratio between livestock and gram prices than now prevails."
