my father once owned, and then,
again, there would be forthcoming
schemes as fantastic that only a
person wearing the degree of doctor
of philosophy could have read the
words without turning to Mr. Wei:-
ster’s unabridged edition of the dic
tionary. They have gone from the
doctrine of scarcity to the doctrine
of some other extreme and most
things in between, always requiring.
however. that the farmer must sign
up a contract with a lot of do’s and
don’ts.

That I may not be accused of be
ing a common scold, let me give
the AAA administrators a word of
praised just here. The soil building
and soil conservation phases of the
program likely are going to be valu
able although I fail to understand
why anybody thinks it is necessary
to pay a farmer to keep his own
land in good shape But, skipping
my own thoughts on that, there is
justification for governmental in

Too many people have the false impression that
borrowing is a sign of weakness or distress.
Such reasoning holds back the march of prog
ress.
Wise loans represent foresight—the ability to
see beyond the end of your nose—to take advan
tage of existing conditions to lay groundwork
for greater returns in the future.
Borrowing wisely is good business, and we have
money to lend for sound purposes. Discuss your

national scale because our nation is
going on for a number of years
we hope.
Then. too. there is argument fa
vorable to a policy of government
encouragement in the planting of
trees, a program of reforestation.
There is, of course. that famous
“parity" business. There is a fund
of ' $225,000,000 which a bunch of
vote-getting congressmen put into
law. Prom it the AAA officials can
pay farmers producing wheat. cot
ton. corn. tdbacco and rice certain
sums if the price of these commodi
ties is less than “75 percent of par
ity."
We have had that one before and
after many trials there are still
many hundreds of versions of “par
ity." It has put the money 0115.
There is no doubt about that. The
AAA men made sure tha: all of it
went out. but some of the methods
of calculations, of appraisals of dis
criminations among farmers, of do’s
and don't's and just plain bureau
cratic regimentation make a fellow
dizzy. I cannot help wondering
what those who live a hundred
years from now will say when they
read the current AAA records. They
may find some new words that will
properly describe the mess.

this year. of “commercial vegeta

Commercial vegetable farmers, aft

} And now. we give you the pay
off on the 1940 program.
: Next year, any farmer. who grows
a vegetable garden will get sz—two
whole dollars that are still highly
regarded by me—if he “co-oper
ates” and does as he is told by the
AAA master farmers. If he fails to
grow that vegetable garden. he will
be docked $2. The government will
get it too. Uncle Sam's boys are
good at that. To make sure about
getting that 32 fine the AAA will
deduct it from whatever other pay
ment that the farmer has earned.
The regulations have not been is
sued yet so I cannot report to you
in advance what you will have to do
to get your $2. The AAA may pos
sibly tell you that you have to grow
so many rows or radishes so many
hills of ‘beans of two or more types
—maybe some pole peans if you
have planted trees tmder the re
forestation program. Or they may
tell you to produce so many yards
of spinach and there must be car
rots and peas because children must
eat carrots and peas. And potatoes!

the real reason I resent this 32 pay
ment is that it represents a gigan
tic reduction in the price of votes. I
think those AM men haven’t learn
ed ~much about politics. They've gone
sissy. The new price sounds like a
fire sale. They ought to know that
no votes induced by that price will
stay put.
x But to get serious about this thing
—this new atrocity that is being
put over in the name or farm aid. it
ought to be said that never in all
recorded history has there been any
such thing attempted before. That.
of course. is no answer. It is an an
swer. however, to say that some
governmental policies, like the ac
tions of some private persons. are
so utterly ludicrous that they hard
ly warrant discussion. Further. we
ought to remind ourselves that in
this instance a government. sup
posed to serve all of the mic. is
undertaking the course. To my
mind, 'the fact that government is
doing it makes it perfection on the
asinine side.
