Kingsport Times (Newspaper) - September 16, 1952, Kingsport, TennesseeNext administration will face Tough parity program Washington c. In the administration which takes Over next january will find a Long existing farm problem still unsolved despite 20 years of governmental grappling with it. This farm problem is the task of gaining and maintaining Sta ble prices and income for the nation s Farmers. Until the Advent of the Roose Relt new Deal administration in 1933, farm prices and income were determined largely by non governmental influences and factors. These included the of crops which. Were unregulated the size of markets and general economic conditions at Home and abroad. Depressed largely by declining foreign markets for world War i agriculture turned to the fed eral government in the late 20s for help in stabilizing prices and farm prices. Induced was the used of making Loans to Farmers on those portions of their crops thai were held Oft markets. This practice usually makes it necessary for Market buyers to match the Price support loan rate. Otherwise they would be unable to get needed products this program works like this the government offers to make Loans on a commodity when for example at an average of a Bushel. To get this loan the Farmer stores his Gram on the farm or in commercial Ware houses. As Long As it is store under loan it is not available for the Market. If the Miller offers much less than the loan rate the Farmer stores his Grain under loan Leav ing the Miller without wheat thus to get the necessary Grain presidents Coolidge and Hoover. They held the View that it was not the government s role to inject itself into the nation s eco nomic operations. Then came the election of 1932. With its Victory for the democrats. This party had promised to do something about farm bankruptcies and land foreclosures. The new Deal set up Federal farm Aid programs based on the theory that it was the Federal government s duty to help farm ers get fair prices and incomes for their products. These programs established a Standard Standard markets the mixer must pay a Price in sympathetic congresses Iline with the Price loan passed farm Aid legislation but it was vetoed by Republican r Egypt ruling party is due for shakeup Cairo. Egypt to reorganize the powerful wafd party in compliance with Strong Man Premier Gen. Mohammed Naguib s new purge Law were put before the party s parliamentary come final approval. The plans were completed by the wafd three member executive committee headed by former Premier Mustapha Elnahas. They include from the member ship list party leaders who were arrested 10 Days ago on suspicion of corruption. Naguib visited the Royal a Seltin Palace in Alexandria for the first time since former King Farouk s abdication and Depar Ture from there july 28. Finance minister Abdel gue lil Elemary said Farouk s Pic Ture soon would disappear from egyptian currency notes. He said notes with the deposed Mon Arch s likeness would be with drawn and others placed in circulation.

John 24, and Robert 22, Don t think much of the Home cooking since they ended four year hitches with the leathernecks. For farm prices a which sponsors said was equally fair to Farmers and those who bought their products. This Standard was named Par it was designed to reflect farm prices which were on a Par in terms of buying Power with prices got in a past prosperous period. In other words these programs that if three bushels of wheat bought a pair of work shoes in the period of farm Prosperity it should buy a pair of equal value at All times. This legislation wrote a for Mula for determining parity prices for the several dozen farm commodities. Under this formula the parity or fair prices Rise and fall with corresponding changes in prices of things farm ers buy so As to maintain equal Ity of relationship Between the farm product and the non farm product or service. This legislation did not How Ever attempt to fix Market prices at the parity level. It did set Forth methods and devices which the government might use to try to push prices up to the parity level and to keep them there. The parity Price Standard has become pretty generally accepted. Both major parties have sup ported the concept since it was their sister Patricia 19, wrote to the Marine corps Early this month about her Brothers All i hear is that they can no longer eat the food we prepare at Home. Established. But bitter developed Over ways and Means of achieving parity prices and returns. These differences still exist and will confront the next president and Congress. The Early legislation sought to push prices up to parity largely by Means of restricting farm production. This method was based on the economic principle that if the Supply of a commod Ity is reduced its Price usually the Early programs blowing under some Jospeh Burns Hope for the Best they do some Long Divi Sion on the Marine menus which Are made up in quantities to feed 100 men. Advances embraced crops killing some pigs and governmental rental of farm land to keep it out of crop production.

Under this method production and marketing quotas Are assigned growers.

We Are glad the Teague com Mittee conducted its study we concur with Many of its find Ings but we vigorously disagree with any report which in effect makes no distinction Between the Homes erected by builders who will stand behind their products and those who he said.

Wept dial 1400 election of convention delegates May be strangest in state history Nashville Campaign for election nov. 4 of Dele Gates to next april s limited state constitutional convention May Well be one of the strangest in years for Tennessee. Two things should make it so. The Campaign probably will be based almost entirely on issues. There appears to be comparatively Little Chance for outright bitter personalities such As dominated the recent demo cratic races for governor and senator to creep into the elec Tion of the 99 delegates. Another Factor will be the Type of candidates with the Chance the Campaign and later the convention itself could develop into a Battle Between some old pro politicians and what might be called a Leavening Factor already has cropped up though in that the growing list of candidates already includes some who Are perfectly at Home in both the old pro and the do gooder Camps. Judging from some of the Early announcements old pro politicians should have their full share of candidates in the Field with local factions no doubt vying for the Delegate jobs. Such groups observers believe will be out to protect their own interests. As an example Nash Ville firemen and policemen opposed calling the convention be cause they against the pro vision that would let the Conven Tion suggest a Home Rule amendment for cities and coun ties. There have been rumours a ticket will be put up in David son county with the sole aim of keeping the convention from proposing the Home Rule Amend ment. There also will be a new crop of candidates for the Delegate faces strange to the political Arena at least As far As actual candidacies Are concerned. This last group is made up i general of persons who never before have sought Public office and perhaps never will again. Tlley have no particular ambition towards elective offices or the protect themselves Politi Cally but they Are interested in Good government in general and in revising the state s 1870 Char Ter in particular. It is for want of a better name that they Are grouped under the title of do most of the members of this group have been in the front of i James o. Watts a Narragansett the Battle to get constitutional j attorney won the Republican revision for some years. They in a nomination for u. S.

J Watts received votes to 3. Appraisals and inspections for Howard Nelson Char constitutional revision committee who argued successfully before the state supreme court that a limited convention is constitutional Gen. W. L. Frierson of Chattanooga chairman of the 1946 committee miss Ella v. Ross Dean of women at the East Tennessee state College at John son City and Raymond Denney Nashville attorney past presi Dent of the state bar association and chairman of the recent state citizens committee for a limited constitutional convention. The Leavening group includes such persons As former Republican gov. Ben Hooper of new port former democratic gov. Jim Mccord of Lewisburg for Mer Gen. And Tva director Jamesp. Pope of Knoxville for Mer mayor and congressman Walter Chandler of Memphis and former state rep. John a. Chambliss of Chattanooga. No youngster himself Chambliss was instigator of a group of Young turks in the 1949 legis lature who sought to get More Home Rule for their cities and counties by local and general acts of the legislature. The Battle Over the issues will of course Center around the stands of the candidates on the six questions the convention can consider hiking the pay of legislators changing the Gover nor s term giving the governor More veto Power eliminating the poll tax making it simpler to Amend the Constitution and Home Rule. As an example one announced candidate Forrest Finley of Lewisburg already has said he May favor having the Conven Tion recommend Only one change in the Constitution to increase the present a Day salary legislators get while in session. The nov. 4 vote for delegates will be the Public s second of three votes in connection with changing the Tennessee charter. The first was the decision last month to Call the convention. The third will be a vote on any constitutional changes the convention May recommend. Kingsport times tuesday sept. 18, 1952 3 wafts nominated in Rhode Island Providence r. I.
