Pacific Northwest veterans arel
reminded by the Veterans Ad-l
ministration that the VA can notl
pay for out~patient medical treat
ment by private physicians unless‘
the injury or illness is service-h
connected-and then only it prior{
VA authorization is obtained. 1
Many veterans. the VA points‘
out, are receiving such care with
out proper authorization in the
mistaken belief that the VA will
pay the bill. They must, how
ever. either contact the VA per
sonally or have their doctor get
permission from the chief medical
IVic Vef Saysl
the ' t _
officer of the appropriate VA
regional office before beginnlnsl
out-patient treatment.
Formal applications for out-‘
patient care at VA expense may
be obtained at any VA office.
Each application should include
the veteran’s full name and ad
dress, VA claim number and the
nature of the disability for which
:treatment is needed.
In cases of emergency treat
ment, prior authorization is not
required, but the treatment must
be reported to theVA within 15
days by the physician to assure
payment by the VA.
The VA also emphasized that
out-patient medical care in either
VA clinics or from private phy
sicians under the VA’s “home
town" medical program is avail
able only to veterans whose dis
abilities have been officially
determined to have been caused
or aggravated by service in the
armed forces. _

Program Io Give
More Support to
Farm Production
‘3? on. CHARLES M. sun-ton
Department of Agriculture Econ
omics Washington State College
The proposed new farm pro
gram would give more price and
aimcome support to Washington
farm products than would the
agriculture act of 1948 (Aiken
Bill) passed by the 80th congress}
In the first place, milk, eggs,
chickens, hogs, beef cattle, lambs,
and wheat, all important Washing
ton products, are among the group
one commodities in the new plan.
As such they would have first
claim on money made available for
farm price and income support.
Wheat was the only Washington
farm product in the group one
or basis class under the 1948
farm act.~
The support price for wheat in
1950 under the income support
standard of the proposed new pro
gram would probably be close
to or slightly above 90 percent
of the old parity. Estimated max
imum support price for wheat
under the same act of 1948 tor
the 1950 crop would be $1.85 a
bushel. The new income support
standard woulfl likely be a few
cents W. ‘
Much has been said about the
imam of price apports on
production Imm bi: terms. Here
'is the way that provisions would

Production from any one. arm?
or ranch would receive price-sup
port up to an annual output at
Blmost 14.000 bushels. That would

have its total output covered. Aver
age size of wheat farms In the
Palouse is about 500 acres and
around a thousand acres in the
dryland acres. ."It is believed that
a very high percentage of Wash
ington Wheat farms would have all
or a large part of the production
Under the proposed new farm
program, milk would be supportea
at a level substantially above the
maximum provided .for in the
1948 farm act.
Any one farm under the propos
al could receive support on up
to 62,000 pounds of milk pro
duced in one year. A dairy with
62 cows prodnging an average
of 10,000 poun‘ s per cow could
receive support on the total out
put. If the average production.
per cow was 8,000 pounds. the
output from ‘7B cows would be
Average milk production per
cow on Washington farms in 1948‘
was 8,400 pounds. Therefore the
output of 97 av rage Washington
cows per farm, ased on the 1946
average, would completely cov-
lered by the su ports of the pro
;posed program.
' The average %tterfat produc
tion per cow on . ashington‘ farms
‘in 1946 was 26 pounds. At this
.average‘ product on, the proposed
program would completely cover
the output of 14 cows per farm.
Apples are no among the corn
modities which would have first
claim on funds vailable for price;
and income sup ort. This is true:l
aboth on the farm act of 19431
.(Aiken Bill) and the proposed
program. However, in the event
of price supports for apples, the
lproposed program would provide
Mint Oil Support
Not in Program
Congressman Hal Holmes re
ported from Washington, D. 0.,
this week. that he had been dis-z
cussing the peppermint oil situa-‘
tion with officials at the Depart-‘
ment of Agriculture in an effort
to assist growers in disposing of
an excess supply, but that outside;
of prospects of purchases by'
countries with ERP funds, thel
situation is not promising. ‘
Discussing the situation withi
regard to peppermint oil. con--
gressman Hal Holmes said: ‘
“U. S. parity for peppermint oil. ‘
was of February 15, 1949, was
$6.69 per pound with the growers
of the US. averaging $6.27 per lb.‘
Howe’Ver, Washington growers:
have only received an ‘average of‘
$5.85. In discussing the desire-g
bility of a . price support program‘
for peppermint oil, the Production:
\and Marketing Administration re-i
ports that no such program will,
be initiated at this time, giving as‘
the principal reasons, (i) U. s.
peppermint oil growers received
an average price of about 96%
of parity for the 1948 crop. and
42) a determination that pepper.
mint old should be price-sup“
ported would be inconsistent with
the criteria established by the‘
agricultural act for 1948 for in.
stituting such a program. |
“Peppermint oil is becoming: an
increasingly important crop in the
lower Yakima Valley and efforts
will be continued to be helpful.
The ECA has recently announced
that the following funds have
been made available for several
European countries now in need
of supplies of peppermint oil:
France, $80,000; Ireland, $3,000;
Netherlands, $1,082,000. Apprixl
mately one-third of these funds
will be used for the purchase of
peppermint oil and such pur
chases will be made in the United
States not later than September

,a substantially higher support
level. It is estimated that the
average yield of apples in Wash
ington is about 400 bushels per
acre. Supports would be provided
up to 10,000 bushels per farm.
In Washington that means-on the
average —all of the production
from 25 acres would be supported.
