2-Algona (la.) Upper DM MolnM Tuesday, October 16, 1962 toper Be$tttome$ •^•^•••••••••••••••••^••••••••••••••••i Says Hoeven Misrepresents The New 1963-1964 Farm Bill DOES IOWA RECOGNIZE STRENGTH? GET TOGETHER, GENTLEMEN When the next election rolls around, low- ans will elect a governor. They can reelect the incumbent, or in his place elect Harold S. Hughes. It is about Harold E. Hughes that we wish to make a few remarks. Probably some of our readers absorbed the article on Mr. Hughes in the Register, Oct. 7, issue. It is a most remarkable story, especially so because it is candid and without the usual em- bellisments that go with a political autobiography. Hughes is a native of Ida Grove, where he was a good athlete. He served in WW II, and as he says "went in a private and came out a private", with 14 months of combat as an automatic rifleman in northern Africa and Sicily and Italy. Like many others, he admits his post-war adjustment was not a very pleasant one. It wasn't for many. But by 1952 he had his feet on the ground and entered a new phase of his life. He had completed one year at SUI before the war, then took correspondence courses from Southern Methodist University starting in about 1952. He is a Methodist lay leader. He advocates legalized liquor-by-the-drink, yet has helped form total abstinence groups in several areas. He says it is the misuse of alcohol that is the major danger, and believes that under our present system we are allowing contempt and disregard for the law to exist. He says liquor laws should either be enforced or changed. To have a candidate for major office be honest with himself, and with the public he asks for support, is a rarity. It is also the sign of a deep strength of character and an element of leadership not too often found in candidates. He has been serving as a member of the lov/a Commerce Commission, an elective office. He gained valuable experience for this post in development of his own trucking operations, and leadership of the Iowa Motor Truck Ass'n. In recent years we have heard much about the need of "leadership" in state government, lowans will have an opportunity, come Nov. (,, to say whether or not they really want strength and character and leadership in the State House in Des Moines. Hughes may not win; but if he does, low- ans will know they have a governor. From the Des Moines Register, Tuesday Oct. 9, 1962. Senator B. B. Hickenlooper, en page 3 speaking — "America's prestige under the Ken nedy administration is lower than it has ever been in peacetime." Gardner Cowles, publisher of the Register, on page 7, speaking — "I am convinced the United Slates has improved its position in the power struggle with the Soviet bloc in recent years." Since both men are good Republicans, somebody must be wrong. Lincoln and Douglas once debated via horseback around Illinois, and the underdog, Mr. Lincoln, won the election. It is just possible that Mr. Hickenlooper recalls this incident, and is thus most reticent to engage in a series of debates or TV interviews on the same platform with his Democratic opponent, E. B. Smith. * * * POISONING OURSELVES? A new book just published, "Silent Spring", authored by Rachel Carson, is headed for the best seller list, despite the fact that it isn't based on sex or mayhem. She says that the ever-increasing use of pesticides and insect-killing chemicals is spreading a poisonous blanket across the land, destroying birds, animals, soil, water and maybe human beings. Coming at a time when we are also wondering how much future damage the atomic bomb blasts may be doing, it is a most sobering volume. The book pictures an imaginary town where chemical pollution has silenced bird, uni- mal and human voices of spring. It proceeds to document scores of cases to show how chemicals are contaminating food, and have already brought illness and death to human beings. Much of the pending damage cannot be detected for years, and possible genetic effects would only show up in future generations. Our chemical knowledge is minute.

And since for 1964 the and when atmospheric blasts create new radiation belts upsetting all of the laws of nature, it is possible that we are making such "progress" that we are also slowly killing off all fife on fhis world.

Charles Hoeven is quoted as saying that the farm bill recently passed is a "brazen attempt" to blackjack the corn farmer. He said it would put the support price on corn for the year 1!H>4 at 50 percent of parity, or about HO cents a bushel. That is a fake statement. For lf»(H the measure provides in Sec. 305 that: "Beginning with 1964 price support for corn shall be made available to producers, at such level, not loss than 50 percent nor MORE than 90 percent of the parity price therefor, as the Secretary determines will not result in increasing Commodity Credit Corporation stocks of corn. That means that if the farmers cooperate with the government in •educed planting of corn so as to nerely prevent any increase in he surplus, the Secretary is pecifically authorized to place the support not at 50 percent, as Hoeven states, but at 90 percent, which is a shade more than $1.49 per bushel. The bill for 1963 corn crop provides that the support price shall be not less than 65 percent of parity, which would be $1.04 per bushel, but in addition a compensatory payment of 18 cents is made mandatory, making a total of SI.22. It is a good bill. With farmers who comply with the reduction of corn acreage, a compensatory payment of 18 cents per bushel is provided, even if the corn is fed and not sealed. This is an improvement over the 1962 program. But Hoeven tried to kill the bill. He moved to strike out all of those support provisions including the 18 cents per bushel compensatory payment, but his motion failed. This fact is recorded in the Congressional Record for 1962, page 19013.
