EDITOR A Good Answer Two words tha pack a .great deal of emo- tional dynamite are communism and capil- ism. They represent the fund.amenal econ- omic and political systems under which peoples of he world live. By their nature, they .are incompatible. Under communism, the people live for the ste. Under capital- ism, the state is ,a symbol of self.govern merit, a source of rmtirnal pride, but also a mechanism of limited powers. Under capitalism, the eolle own and man.age the principal resources and te pro- ductive facilities of the nation. This awnr- ship is the source of independence. Owner- ship is an essential right which prorides in- contrive and inspiration to the irdividual. The hlcompatability between communism and capitalism was ably pointed up recently in a statement by Keith Funston, President of the New York Stack Ex&lt;flange, to Prem- ier K, hrushchev during an interview when Mr. Funston was in Russia: "Mr. Chairman, contrary to what you lmve said, we business- men believe that capitalism is going to de- feat communism. Capitalism recognizes the all-powevftfl force of inllvidtml incentive and, hence, is consistent with .human nature. Communism seeks vainly to suppress that force. Capitalism recogrAzes that people will work hardest only when they know that they will reap directly sme of the benefits of their work, and can pass on those benefits to those vcho are closest to them. Moreover, in America, anyone can own shares of al- most any public corporation. Eventtmlly, as individual ownership broadens and grows stronger, our indstxial,,, enterprises will be owned by the mass of our people. This sys- tem works .because it is count with human natuxe. O the other ,hand, your sys- tem, vchich does not reard everyone in connection with his individual contribution, must fail, because of the lack of adequate individual incentives. This is the root of the ouble you in Russia, .are ,having now with your agricultural program." The ownership of industry by the people through voluntary investment is the surest way to defeat the men, ace of socialis and communism and preserve our capitalkstic, free enterprise economy. Hardly The SohJtion In discussing Presleat ,lohnson"s Federal drive on lverty, the NAM News reminds us that Federal, state ,and local welfare now cots us $40 billion a year  which is $4,700 for each of the 9.3 minion amflies the Presi- dent estimates are in need. Mr. Johnson would add $300 millS, on to welfare programs -- or a little over $30 per family. As the News points ou, if we still have poverty in Eis country, it is not because we have been niggardly. If $4,700 per fofily won't s<flve the prob- lem, $30 more is not ,likely to. Perh*aps this poverty issue will stand a little more lok- ing into. 40 Years Ago trict basketball tournament by trimming Spangle 19-9 in the 1924 playoff. High point men were C. D.

The boys had stopped to work on their car when they chanced to discover ,a skull amorg the rocks. Digging near the spot, they soon unearthed the bones of a man, the feet still encased in low riding boots and a piece af felt hat which had beeul fasliormd into a mask. The felt mask had other perforaions besS.des those for eyes a.nd nose, indi- cating that the man had been murdered. The boys reported to H. B. Ashwovth, who with D. G. Jerue :and F. H.

In the ast few weeks we have been going through several cost analysis figures with local op- erators, at their request, to find cost of wod,uction .and :net returns on a per acre bans. This is ,done o:n their particular program or crop- ping system. By comparing these systems with alternate systems, usir N the farmers' costs and the etimated yields that may be received, oper- a,tots are ,able to see whether they are usi,g the best adapt- ed system. These alternatives are what their n,ghbors miglt .be doiag on the same general soils, with semewha:t the same rainfa.Rs and slopes. Cost Needed To start the whole analysis:, the operator must get he ac- tual cost of production. To do this, he must first get the ma- chinery costs on a per 'hour or acre basis. Tlgs is done by fig- uring the ptrchase price, ex- peoted lie, trade-in vatue and amortized in,to annual cos added to-the 'annual cost of repairs. The operating costs, taxes, insurxnce and shelter are added togher and then both-totals re ivided by the annual use (ether .hours or acres) to give the .to2 cos,t of owning and operating tlat piece of machinery per hour or acre. After all the machinery costs have been completed, the operator must itemize all of the operations and fgure the total cost per acre for produc- tion, including the labor costs, tractor costs, machinery costs, materials: insurance .alntd mis- cellaneous costs for establish- ing the crop. Then add t.o this the costs of harvesting. r Next, figure the estimated yield .and estimated price re- ceived for the gross return to land. If the place is under shares, figure gross return to the operator a.nd substract the cost of production to give the net to the operaor. These final figures are very interesting to compare with other systems to see which will net the most. made in the last Session below the previous year. You will re- call in the la,st ,session we cut i the preceding year's appro- priaUons for the first time in several years." As Cannon correctly pointed out, it is well to remember thai a fiscal year is a brief and arbitrary p,eriod .of measure- mont. The opera, tiorts of the g'3vernment do not cease on June 30, Lhe end of the fiscal yar, and begin anew the next day. Thus, the aggregates o{ a given budget are therefore not necessarily conclusive. It is well to undest, an, d just which budget the Congress processes. C:onlgress acts on the new obligationaI a,uthority bud- get but does not ,dectly cn- sider the widely known ex- penditure budget If we gan,t more obligational auority, the executive branch can spend more, and conversely, if we cut the obIgai,onal re- quest, ,they have less  spend. The important org ,run ,ba- rometer to spending is the trend of ew obligating author- ity. It can be mhsleadng to lay undue store by the catcula- tions of expenditures in a giv- en year. In this regard, the President's budget is higher, rmt lrower? It signifies more, not ess spending. The President ,has proposed that the Colgress in ths ses- sion grant new (bligational !:authority of ,over $108 'billion. Nearly $104 billion is for fis- cal year 1965, and $4.2 billion is in addition to fund,s already appropriated for his curren fiscal year wN:ch ends this coming June 30. This figure is qui,te different from the press ,reports of a "checking ac- court" budget ,f $97.9 bit!lion. Arid this budge will un- dou, btedly require a further increase in rOur natiorml public debt. At the present ime i't is $315 billion, but indications point to a further .up.ward ad- ja'stment ,to a mmamum o, $317 billion by t/he end of Us- ca ! year 1965. Tllus for 13,th consecutive year, the Congress will make some ad- ju,sment m the debt ceiling.
