Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 15, 1933, Mason City, Iowa TWO MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE DECEMBER 15 SAYS INFLATION NOT CORE ALL Wallace Makes His Annua Report on Agriculture to President WASHINGTON Dec 15 reiterated warning that currency inflation is not a cure all for farmers troubles was issued by Secretary Wallace today in his an nual report to President Roosevelt Inflation would raise genera price levels he said but would no I eliminate the disparity between prices of agricultural and nonagri cultural products which he termed essential to permanent farm relief OC the administrations gold pur chase plan he said Prices Should Rise It may not have any great effect for some time in livestock ant dairy prices Eventually however most of our raw material prices should rise to the extent to which the gold in the dollar is reduced Wallace recommended regulation of grain exchanges and separation of savings from commercial banks in order to strengthen country banks He blamed the rise in farm pricei from last March to July on inordl hate speculation in the commodity markets and told the president i is imperative for the government tt supervise and If necessary to reg ulate grain speculation becaus such supervision is the only mean of preventing abuses BalanceProduction Balancing production with de mand was the keynote of Wallaces report He predicted a permanen program of crop control in line with needs of the domestic market The adjustment act he said is a program for economic the first of its kind in the nation history It contemplates the organization of producers for action which they cannot take individually but which is necessary to substitute order for chaos in the agricultural indus try he continued adding that it had improved farm conditions in the last six months Situation Critical Wallace said the situation in the cotton belt remained critical de spite the withdrawal of 10396000 acres from production due to ab normal yields On other phases of the program he reported the wheat program called for a reduction of 9600000 acres cutting production about 124000000 bushels The emergency pig and sow pur chases were expected to result in higher hog prices during the 1933 1934 marketing year the cornhog plan was in its initial stages and the dairy products plan had not been formulated the tobacco pro gram resulted in a decrease of more than 18350000 pounds in 1933 production Fay for Farmers Farmers will have been paid be for the end the year approxi mately 5300000000 In direct bene fit payments in return for agree ing to reduce crop and livestock production in 1934 the report con tinned The entire adjustment program was said to be admittedly a tern porary plan since it had the dis advantage of taking out of produc tion both efficient and inefficien areas In the long run Wallace held it would be cheaper for the gov ernment to purchase farms than t lease them Restriction will becom less necessary as the domestic ae mand for farm products revives 1 is therefore necessary to conside gradually reducing and controllirj the size of the farm plant as whole as a means of supplementin and in some measures displacing th emergency policies Farm Indebtedness Farm mortgage indebtedness i 1932 was estimated by Wallace a 55500000000 and carrying charge on this he said wpuld take abou 13 per cent of the gross farm in come He said the farm credit ad ministration had made progress i alleviating that situation The probable gross farm incom for 1933 was estimated at 56100 000000 plus 300000000 in benefi payments the 1932 figure was 143000000 arid that for 1931 wa 56911000000 Wallace said farm prices had gom up from their February all time low Jut a disparity still remained be tween the prices received by farmers and those they must pay because of irice increases in manufactured goods OU ARE CORDIALLY I INVITED TO OUR OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT 7 to 9 P M MUSIC SOUVENIRS Come in to see one of Iowas
