Farmers protest to buy time it s too bad we have to do this to keep Farmers on the farm a Stan Irvin Sublette by Alan Montgomery Springfield Colo. Hns the Farmers who came Here tuesday from across the Midwest say they didst come a just to raise they came to buy time for a fellow Farmer and to direct Public attention to the vast number of american Farmers who Are near foreclosure or who have already lost their farms according to Willie wieck of Etter Texas. Despite the protests chants fist to fist Contact with riot squad deputies picketing tractor Cading and egg throwing the Public auction was conducted and the 320-acre farm of Jerry Wright of Campo Colo., was sold to the land Bank which held the mortgage on the property. Wieck said he was saddened to see Wrights farm sell. A Wright did nothing wrong. He maintained production of Milo right at the county wide average. If the Price of Milo would have stayed at $5 he would have been Able to keep up on his a whatever benefits if any the american Public received from Carters 1980 Grain embargo it was at the Cost of Jerry a farm a wieck said. It also Cost american Industry and american workers he said. A i can to buy products made by the Auto workers steel workers.

We re not out to fight the Banks. Our position is this Selling out the Farmer at this time is not the answer. Its a result of not having parity farm pricing Congress should put prices up to parity. Not a subsidy we re talking about a floor Price like minimum wage a ringer said. During the last session of Congress hr-7111 was introduced the Bill would establish ceiling and floor prices for farm commodities and would set a minimum Price for imported Grain at 110 percent of parity he said �?ohr-7111 deals in grains and Cotton. We d like to see beef and milk included too a he said. There is a growing surplus of Dairy products and the Dairy Industry is being criticized for this he said. A but we still import More Dairy products than we Export according to us a figures a a just to shut them farm foreclosure auctions off is not the intent. The intent is to shut off the auctions until legislation is passed a he said. Ringer gave the following historical references in 1932, farm parity was at a Low of 54 percent within a year unemployment was up to 26 percent. A was parity Price Levels drop unemployment rises. Parity is once again at the 54 percent level As of november just watch the unemployment rate a he said.
