Conservation News By Clarence A. Kelley SCS Tech,ician Following is an anonymo,us atiele vthich came across my lath quite recently. I'm sure you,ll find it interesting. "WHAT is a farmer? A farm- e is a paradox--,he is an ex- ecutive with his home s of'f- me; a scientist using fertilizer attchmes:; a purchasirg agent in old straw ha.t; a per- sormel director with grease un- der his fingernai,ls; a dietitian with a passion for alfalfa, am- trios, and antibotics; a roduc- ti.on expert with a; and a manager battling a pice-cos squeeze. He maaages mere capital than most of the businessmen in town:. He likes sun!shine, good food, State fairs, dinner at n,oon, auc- tiors, his neighbors:, his Shirt collar uabuttoned and, a,bove .all, a good soaking rain in Au- gust.

The Washington Bar Association son he wanted to have his WhOle estate got a quarter of it. A Home.Made Will John Jones, a "do4t-your- seW' advocate, bought a blank form for making a will at the corner drugstore and got a sheet of free instructions wit the will form. He ffihd ott the wili orm foBowg the written instruc tions, had two of is neiglbers , witness the will, and put it away with his valuable papers, confident that he had properly disposed o his worldly goods in the event of hs death. Two yrs later ,he died. His only son by his second wife, ollowirg his father's written instrtmtions, took he will to a lawyer, who flied it in court for probate. A month later tw older sors ad a dau]- ter ,of John Jones intervened t.n the probate proceedings, claiming that they were en titled to three-furtls of their father's estate because e had not framed them v provided for them in his will. Do you think that Mr, Jones' tzomemade will i legally suf- fica'ent to dispe of his estate ,as he wated it to go?

This year there is scheduled a full scale investigation into the differential in the price of foods paid by consumer, com- pared to prices farmer re- ceives.

The ii:!ii:iii vociferous i declaiming on this issue : is attributing ,i everything tc 11 an assertion c.w. Harder that chain stores are rigging the meat prices to the detri- ment of the farmer. There may or may not be some merit to this claim, however the farm- er's problem does not seem to lend itself to being' neatly wrap- ped up into one area. * * * At the end of April, the U.S. Department of Labor issued reports that on their method of basing prices their index of wholesale market prices show- ed advances in all areas but one. Farm products declined in price, but processed foods advanced. Wholesale meat prices advanced. The report also states that part of the decline in farm products was due to lower pric- es for prime steers, but on the other hand the processed food prices rose because of higher wholesale prices of beef. *** Thus, f the forthcoming in- vestigation of food prices is on the level there are many areas that should be explored. *** It undoubtedly should be in National Federation of Independent Business the area of growing concentra- tion in the slaughter house and packing house industry to fer- ret out monopoly growth. * * * And if the same zeal for an honest, objective investigation is carried through without pol- itical considerations, it will probably also be found that the labor monopoly in the trucking industry and the butchering trade is also ruin- ing the farmer. * * * The problem of the Ameri- can farmer is serious. * * * Recently Senator A. Willis Robertson of Virginia stated that unless labor exercises re- straint in wage and fringe de- mands unions will probably bc put under the antitrust laws For some time the nation's in- dependent business propri- tors, voting through the Na- tional Federation of Indepen- dent Business, have been heav- ily in favor of unions being made subject to antitrust laws. If this investigation is honest need for such legislation will probably be highlighted. Obviously there is a limit to what the consumer can pay for any type of food. Any unnecessary cost im- posed between the farmer and the consumer either forces the farmer to operate at a loss or consumer to forego buying. Obviously union feather bed- ding, excessive wage and fringe payments and monopol- istic pricing practices both not only transcend all laws of rea- son, but also interfere with or- derly marketing. A Great So- ciety can never be if the pro- ducers of that society's food are either impoverished, or kept solvent by subsidies. Amber News Mrs. N. A.
