a rain over toward Ada and tern
peratures in the upper eighties gave
a setting of real Fourth of July
weather with here and there a fire
cracker just to give it an oldtime
flavor and despite the crowds
there were no accidents or rowdyism
which speaks well for the good
natured orderly crowd which filled
the town for the weekend celebration
—and also for the work of local of

fields farmers say is rust—and most
wheat will need a few more days to
ripening and corn that isn’t knee
high is a rarity right now1 you’ll
see what may well be the preview of
the best farm crops in recent years—
altho farmers will tell you that a crop
is never sure until it’s in the bag—or
the mow—as the case may be
anyway nature is doing her stuff in
top fashion—crops flourishing—sleek
herds contentedly grazing in lush
meadows wild roses blooming
along the roadside add a delicate
touch of the beautiful and the magic
flickering lights of fireflies as dusk
gathers—nothing like a drive thru
the country these days to rveive faith
in the eternal goodness of things and
restore faith in our destiny as a
nation in the midst of a world beset
with turmoil and anxiety.
Maybe he was right—the fellow
who told us the other day that the
trouble with this country is that we
have had too much too long—more
than we can use of the good things
of life—food, pleasure and entertain

we want it or not—the envy and ex
ample for the rest of the world. It

Word from the Chas. Laubys who
are spending the summer in Van
Nuys, Calif., saying that southern
California is overpopulated with re
sulting heavy highway traffic—cars
travelling at a 50 to 65 mile gait in
four lanes four abreast vegetables
are of poor quality and high priced
in the markets and orange trees
are being uprooted because of disease.

What’s this parity bill that congress
enacted just before it shut up shop—
a fellow asked us the other day. We
didn’t know, so we asked a farmer
friend who we figured should know
all about it—well, he didn’t but he
said he would look it up.
Day or two after he came in with
a farm publication which wasn’t too
happy over the whole situation, look
ing back over the history of govern
ment price support programs. Here
is it’s summary:
“If there is to be a price support
program for agriculture, and there
certainly should be one based on
sound planning, it should be worded
so clearly that even an eighth grade
child can understand what it means.
It should not be left to bureaucrats to
interpret it as as they see fit, chang
ing the rules in the middle of the
game as has been done with the Stea
gall amendment on hog support
prices.
“If the new parity formula and
price support law has any similarity
to the Steagall amendment, we can
tell you now the new law will be inter
preted by the bureaucrats when they
get hold of it.
“Figure this out if you can: Hogs
will be supported at 90 percent of
parity during the year of 1949 on the
sama seasonal price variation as was
in effect in 1948.
“Of course, before any prices are
computed, the average of the average
flow of water over Niagara Falls
must equal the average flow of the
tide at any given point. Add these
factors together and divide by a num
ber from one to ten. This result must
be added to the distance from the
bam to the fence on the north 80
nearest the hog house. Then walk
four paces to the left and divide by
.015. If the answer is less than you
expect, multiply by the age of the
oldest man in your community and the
number nearest the estimated dis
tance to the moon will then be twice
the average of spats in Soufh Africa
and therefore must be the sum total

of the average prices being paid for
hogs on a given day. You will notice
that only the day is given you pay
for everything else.
“But—a federally inspected
slaughterer must buy your hogs—that
sounds reasonable and sensible and
is about the only part of the Steagall
hog support price that is understand
able.
“Seriously—From all appearances
the programs to support agriculture
so far produced have so many con
ditions, ifs, ands and buts that they
could mean anything anyone wanted
