Cite Past History
Altho a program of production
cutbacks seems contrary to present
world food needs, proponents of con
servative farming operations cite
history to justify their attitude.
Apathy And Unrest Highlight Confused Farm
Picture As Plant ng Season Nears
After the close of World War I,
farmers were urged to cooperate in
all-out food production. Our farm
ers produced a record crop in 1919
only to find European output had re
covered miraculously and actually
was a competitor in world wide
trade. Surpluses piled up as a re
sult and prices broke viciously down
This time government supported
prices are cited as a prevention of
the 1919 break, but the record of
supported pricing is not too good.
As recently as 1944 government con
trol failed to hold eggs to the sup
port minimum.
A doctrine of conservative farm
production now also is seen as a
move to take farm production away
from government price supports,
controls and subsidies. By making
agriculture stand on its own feet,
its future stands better chance of
favorable aspects, is the opinion of
many farm leaders.
It is felt a program of conserva
tism in operation will reduce the
danger of domestic surpluses and a
need for government controls. At
the same time, there will be oppor
tunity to build up soil fertility, so
that a maximum quantity of good
food can be produced at a favorable
cost of production.

ing to the general concensus of farm
“We are going to work an eight
hour day as they do in the factories,
do what we can, and forget the
rest,” was the way one farmer sum
med it up this week.
Corn Acreage Down
Principal decrease in acreage is
expected to be in corn, which en
tails a high labor factor, and also
because of prospects that corn pick
ers will not be available for next
fall’s harvest.
Wheat acreage is expected to be
about the same as last year, and
soybean seeding, with little interest
shown originally, appears to be plan
ned in about the same proportion as
in 1945, after the government did
an about-face in price controls.
Last year’s soybean price of $2.04
was dropped to $1.80 about the holi
days, but after there was an indi
cation of a sharp drop in this year’s
acreage the control price was re
stored to $2.04 this spring.
