Salt Lake City Progressive Opinion (Newspaper) - March 13, 1942, Salt Lake City, Utah Printing publishing published by c. N. Lund Looper be Razz David Keith bldg., dial Salt Lake City Utah Friday March 13, 1942 farm bloc in Congress threatens Wickard s policy highly insistent group fights to prevent surplus commodities corporation from Selling farm products below parity. By Baukhage news analyst and commentator. Gnu service 1343 h Street a Washington d. C. It is the equal of five Long blocks from where Secretary Wickard s windows look out on the wide sweep of Lawn in front of the department of agriculture building along the winding roads to the White House. But or. Wickard except for Cabinet meetings does t take that trip very frequently. It is not because he in t As Welcome As any other member of the president s official family. It is because he feels pretty sure if he tends to his agricultural knitting he won t be fired. That can be said and is said in spite of the fact that he is probably the Only member of the Cabinet whom the president Ever told a Large group of listeners that he could fire. That was at a White House press and radio conference when the pres in t going to lose anything. If we sell our Grain at 15 per cent below parity he knows that he can get that 15 per cent Back through Bene fit payments for soil that is the explanation of the Case which sounds simple even to the Layman. But that in t the Way the president explained it he said that if the department of agriculture did not have its Way the Cost of eating would be raised a billion dollars a year. But the fact remains that the president is satisfied that or. Wick Ard knows what he is doing and that he is doing what the president thinks is right of course this does t make it right or if it did it would t make it necessary that the people accept it if they prefer some other pro Gram. If the farm bloc has enough of a following among the voters it can write its own ticket. Wear ident was being questioned concerning what seemed to be a conflict Between the Secretary of agriculture and Price control administrator Henderson As to who was going to regulate farm prices. He said if they did t agree he could fire them both. The controversy has been for gotten and Secretary Wickard who can talk Only half As fast As Price still a democracy. It is a lot Shorter from the ballot Box to the con Gress than it is from the department of agriculture to the Oval office in the executive Wing of the White House. The Basic Rule behind War censorship in Washington we have a censor ship for press and radio and also several propaganda organizations which Are censorship in reverse. A great Many letters which i receive from listeners to my radio program say of course we realize you Are not allowed to say this or that or we realize you have to say that or this but the Surpris ing thing is How Seldom the this or that which the listeners mention Are the things the censorship for bids us to say or the that or this is Ever even suggested by the propaganda a matter of fact i have had Only one direct Contact with either the propaganda bureaus or the censorship. A Man whom i know personally who is connected with the office of facts and figures once called me up and said that he would be Able to give me some interesting information from time to time. He never has. As to the censorship the radio chains Drew up their own code be fore the censorship organization was founded. It is based largely on com Mon sense and except for certain specific details this code differs very which the Cen Secretary of agriculture Wickard he is being annoyed. Administrator Henderson and in t did t los even a Quarter As glib any of his Price controlling Power. But the past weeks have seen those prerogatives attacked from another sources the 111l1c Uriu Sor expects us to follow. Before i member of the news go on the air a staff of the Blue network reads Over my script. So far nothing has been changed so far As i can recall. Until we have official Confirma Tion from the army or Navy we Are not allowed to reveal any troop movements or any ship move ment ship movements include vertical movements downwards sinking. When we repeat information contained in enemy state ments we have to say they Are enem y statements and if possible we balance them with some statement source of annoyance for the depart ment of agriculture the farm bloc in Congress. Today it is the farm bloc which is again annoying or. Wickard. This highly consistent and highly insistent group in Congress decided it just was t going to let or. Wick Ard s surplus commodity corporation sell farm products below parity. First they induced the Senate to pass a Law agin it then when the president said he d veto the Meas ure they decided to tack it on to the War appropriation Bill As a rider. Then the president said it was reprehensible to make an amendment to an important Bill when it was t germane to the Bill. Then the bloc decided to tack it onto the appropriation Bill without which the depart ment of agriculture cannot pay its Bills. The department however seemed willing to face that Calami j 1 to. They were willing to let the president veto the Bill so Long As they were Able to carry out their policy of Selling commodities below parity if they wanted to. They knew they could get another appropriation the Farmers of the country understand better what we Are trying to do than some members of con Gress said one official to me. This is his explanation All we want to do is to sell Grain Low enough so that it will make it More advantageous for the Farmer to raise livestock. We Don t need the wheat and Corn. We have plent y we do need the meat. So does England. If we decrease the Price of feed the Farmer Mill a Tom a tical from a Friendly source. Behind All censorship behind a government regulation of speech and action in wartime is one Rule and Comfort to Thedo not give Aid information of enemy. Specific military nature gives Aid and com fort we May fee to the enemy. Positive that the enemy can get or has already obtained that information other source but from some that does not excuse us for repeat ing certain things Are it publicly. The which printed in the newspapers radio cannot broadcast because radio everywhere an Waves travel reception is instantaneous. A the weather report can be picked up by submarine a few Miles off Feea submarine let newspaper until Tatje physical Contact with the. Shore who was beyond the Field of factual info attest speculation the Field of of a nature which As aids set be interpreted ? raise More livestock and let a Tore turn the starches we Don t need to protein. And also into fats. We feed fats and Oil More than Ever since the vegetable oils of the Netherlands indies have been Cut that is the Way the department of agriculture talks. And they add the wheat and Corn Farmer have simply government of one of Thero the gov rement Comfort but i have if not curs. Editorials by o. N. Lun1 the Powers in Europe that sought i have chosen death instead of life before the great War began there stood a statute on a 10,000 foot Eminence near the Borders of Germany seven Miles from famous was a Noble statue of Christ on an upraised Cross overlooking All the surround ing country whether it is still there we do not know. It would have been very Well if the leading representatives of the warring government Shad held a meeting inthe Shadow of that figure before going to War and there solemnly considered what he had to offer them and How it would compare with what the horrors of War has in store for them in place of War he offered peace instead of hate he Offei Erc d love instead of poverty he offered abundance. In place of death he offered life. For Crue to he would give mercy and kindness for despair he would give Joy. He offer a plan for living that is perfect in its every detail. Why of Why have they rejected him and rushed headlong into sure death hot Metal a vital Stream of f 1 . Of production at Bingham Mountain was around 75,000 tons of Ore in 24 hours. In recent months an average of 87,000 tons of Ore has been mined each Day in addition to about 113.000 tons of waste a total of 200,000 tons of material per Day from this huge open cd t pit which sprawls Over acres of Moun let us backdrop for a moment from the various Battle fronts and see what is going on behind the scenes in one of the major Indus tries supplying America s vital War sinews. One glance reveals that the world s greatest mine is pouring Cut Copper the red Metal of War faster than it Ever did in history at a rate faster than any mine did in it history. This is the Utah Copper mine at Bingham. Utah where men Money and machinery Are pouring out the led Metal at an e Peak in an Effort to Supply those at the fronts with the needed implements to win and win quickly As possible. All previous records have been broken in production at Bingham Moun Tain and the men who Moil the Earth s crust Are contributing a glorious part to the War Effort. Prior to the beginning of the emergency the peace time record Tain at Bingham Canyon Linn of it mining and delivering at the Mills a total of 87,000 tons of Ore in 24 hours or approximately 1,000 Railroad cars about 41 cars every hour a Carload every 88 seconds. The previous record Copper production was reached in 1940 when 452,538,235 pounds of Copper were produced at Bingham Mountain. The estimated production for 1941 is 614,500,000 pounds of the red Metal. If it were not for the Large scale operations at Bingham the Mountain would today be lust a Barren waste As the Ore contains less than 1 per cent Copper.

But they went ahead with their Orgie of murder in spite of All How is it the nations Pav doctors and expend to the limit to bring children into the world and then when they Are flowering into manhood and womanhood they spend millions to destroy the males and starve the womanhood.
