Transcript DOWN TO EARTH Or continued Nine-Point Farm Plan rather than in wheat, cotton, or whatever. However, this type of payment could be made more attractive to them by the addition of bonus bushels of wheat, bales of cotton, etc., if they would take their payment in kind. The Surplus Disposal, as point No. 2, would be accomplished by bartering perishable agricultural products for nonperishable strategic materials. And it is likely that donations to the needy, both at home and abroad, would be utilized, as well as cut-rate sales. Strengthening Commodity Programs, as point No. 3, would mean simply a program of raised price support for some crops. Eisenhower, in his message to Congress, made the statement that the Administration: (a) Whenever possible will continue to ease or eliminate controls over farmers; and (b) For commodities on which price supports arc discretionary, will continue to support these prices at the highest levels possible without accumulating new price-depressing surpluses. Another provision of point No. 3 is that when the livestock market becomes glutted and prices disrupted, the government would, if necessary, purchase livestock and bolster prices. Too. there would be stepped-up school lunch use, as well as use by the armed services. A Dollar Limit on Price Supports, as point No. 4, would provide a maximum price-support loan to anv one particular farm or individual. According to Eisenhower, ". . . The limit should be sufficiently high to give full protection to efficiently operated farms." A Rural Development Program, as point No. 5, has as THE femers w trn<' partit i^ted f;, The Adn [■equate ■ Stters at . It is a 'aimers h, 5"*s bala **** high its purpose the aiding of smaller farms and the low-incom1 farm families. Heretofore, those who benefited most frfll farm programs have been the larger farms, with thw higher production. Assisting in this development prograi* would be the departments of Commerce, Health, Ediic* tion and Welfare, and Agriculture. The Great Plains Program, as point No. 6, would pt° vide special help against the hazards of this partial!] area, such help consisting of government money, techn eians and credit. This would be a program directed towai better land use and better farming practices in the dl lands of the West, where drought and soil-blowing are constant threat. According to Eisenhower, some desiraW modifications of existing legislation include: 1. Provision for long-time cost-sharing commitment! under the agricultural-conservation program, and 2. Relaxation of planting requirements to maintain Ikisc acreage for wheat allotments. Research, as point No. 7, would seek new techniqi|£i products, markets and uses of agricultural prodttc" Research could help utilize our present abundant finding new uses for agricultural products. A refined tiP keting mechanism, plus refrigeration and new process! techniques, could accomplish much.
