OkIahonm, 74059 i i t llenry Bellmen Tiae present drive by the Ame- rican National Cattlemen's As- sociation to bring supplies of beef in line with demand there- by raising the price of live an- imals np to a profitable level combined xdth the thus far ab- ortive efforts of the National Farmers Organization to destroy n]itk and withhold trickles of the hogs and other commodities from the market may be the first wave of the future for ag- ricultm'e generally. Both of these efforts reveal disappoint- meat and disillusionment with govermnent farm programs and show that f(md producers are be- comint increasingly aware of their own power and responsi- bility in farm product pricing. Market prices which retnrn producers less income than the costs of production are no joke for eithcl, producer or consumer. It takes hard, cold cash and lots of it to meet the out of pocket costs that go with producing a crop or an aninml product in these times. Gone are tlae days when a farmer using virgin land, his family's labor and the horses, grain and hay from his own ac- res could produce nmst o.f the prodncts for his own table and a snrphs for a family or two in the neighboring village or town. Commercial agriculture dema- nds effecient, expensive machi- nery, hugh amounts of store bought fertilizer, costly petrol- eum products, labor paid for at rates high enough to meet corn- potion from industrial employers, high priced chemicals to control TIlE PERILINS JOURNAL ineets and.'ov weeds, cash dol- lars to pay interest and property taxes and money for a wide ran- ge of incidental expenses which do not seem incidental at all when income is less than the costs o production. City workers went through such a time in the 1920"s and 1930's and the results are still bein,g felt in the wage and hour bargaining between corporations and labor unions. It made no sense to the prodncers of Amer- ica's industrial plenty to be paid so po(n:ly that they could not afford to purchase the products of their own labor. Collective barbaining was developed as the answer and in spite of its occ- assional abuse and the human imperfections of the system there is little liklihood that it will be ' discarded. TomBerry savs ./ it nmkes no sen.<e at all to farmers that the thirty or so cents per bushel which repre- sents all their "take home pay': can be wiped out without the price of bread coming down ex-en a penny a loaf. It makes no sense to the cattle raisers that the savings of a lifetime can be wiped out 'by :a break in the live animal market while the price of steak and hamburgel, at the meat market remains about st- eady. Food producers are becoming fever and lm:ger' s6 that the ef-' feels of negative farm economics are more intense. Also the problem of achieving collective marketing results arc no/ as difficult as was once the case. These and other factors strongly indicate that the' present genera- tion of fanrmrs and livesRmk producers will find a method of stabilizing farm prices at a fair level so that consumers can be assured of plentiful, high qual- ity food and so producers can be certain that the labor of a year or a lifetilne will not be lost through price flucttmtion caused by some obscure economic or political event. I have a very umasuat and in- teresting neighbor, "Cyclone Jones," who has been studying and working, trying to figure out a method to track down cy- clones. He says that in a few years these stomns will be con- trolled. If his theory works out the way he plans, he will go doWn-in history as being the first man who ever put a cy- clone in a cellar, Did you ever stop to think that generally the more a per- son acquires the more he acts lik a dog? If you give a dog one bone tm will sit down and quietly eat it, but if you throw down 6 or 7 times as many as he can eat he will be so busy running back and forth hiding and burying the bones he won't eat anything---and as a result becomes nervous and confused.
