Pal- I ten. niultiiiiillli.il. lire wheal king of! Chicago given In an Interview with N'A Service in which he discussed the! fact that tho farmer's dollar has Shrunk to 71 per cent of Its former value The drop Is due to the de crossed price of farm c ommodities as I compared to what he buys. J'atten for years has been a keen ; student of agricultural conditions and ' bis views of agricultural conditions I are accepted as authoritative by stu dents of the subject "1 am asked where the farmer is! headed for. and what solution there Is I for his present situation." Patton said. "In reply, 1 answer, the farmer is ; not headed anywhere he has already 1 arrived. Ills trouble Is fundamental and it cannot be cured by local appli cations WAGES RED! OED Crops represent the wages of tho i farmer. He gets so many bushels of i wheat for his year's labor. The ex change value of the wheat measured ln termsof the products of other la bor represents the farmer's reward.' "If his products will now exchange, J for only 71 per cent of what they ex changed for In 1013. as shown by government reports, then his wages! have- been reduced by that much. 'Win n economic factors have free play, the reward for one form of labor! when measured in the products of an-1 other form of labor, will hear an ' equitable relation To the amount of! human effort involved in each produc tion. g The fundamental difficulty now Is that the price of the farmer's prod- I uct Is fixed by competition. In the case of wheat, by world competition. I I. I l AIM II ECIAL1 "On the other hand the price of! what the farmer has to buy is deter mined by the wages paid ln its pro duction, and thSSfl wages are not fix ed in free competition, but are ar tlftcially established "The farmer, therefore, is the chief victim of a situation ln which one class of labor Is subsidized by wages maintained at an artificial level, and another class which hits Its wage de termined by free competition.
