Sounder AfJProach At least one spokesman of big business recently spoke a few sweet words regarding the Brannan farm plan now engaging the attention of the Congress. Some of the unlikelihood i§ rubbed off this occurrence upon reflection that tbe speaker represents the meat packing industry, which likely would be more b~cnefited under the Brannan pian. Nevertheless, the speaker's summary of the differences of approach to the crop support problem between the existing Aiken plan and the proposed Brannan plan, and bis conclusions regarding their relative effectiveness seem worth quoting. Following are those parts of an address delivered June 9 before th'€ Rotary Club of Denver, Colorado, by Oscar G. Mayer, president of Oscar Mayer 8 Co., Cbic:igo, and member of the executive committee of the Board of Directors of the .American Meat Institute, which deal with the farm subsidy plans. The quoted remarks followed disrnssion of a number of matters of interest to the livestock industry. Said Mayer: "These matters cannot be dissociated entirely from plans embarked upon in Washington to support farm income. The latest of these, as you all know, is the so-called Brannan plan which presents intricate formulas as a basis for direct money payments ,on perishables to farmers to support their income. The Brannan proposal is different from the present law, known as _the Aiken plan, in that all classes of livestock would be classed as basic commodities and would receive direct payments from the government under the Brannan plan whereas under the Aiken plan hogs are the only class of livestock on which price support has been announced and 01) these only until March 30, 1950, unless the secretary of agriculture elects to extend support beyond that date. "The other important difference in the two plans is that the Brannan .proposal would support income from these commodities, including livestock, at JI 0 percent of parity, whereas the present law endeavors to support prices at somewhere between 60 and 90 percent of parity. The l LO percent of parity formula would, I b~licvc, make it soon necessary for the secretary of agriculture to impose rigid production restrictions and marketing quotas. This would probably lead eventually to almost complete control of crop acreages, livestock production and the timing of marketings. "I sense m:iny difficulties in the administration of any cash payment plan to 5 million farmers. The huge clerical problem involves large further additions to our federal bureaucracy, and there is some question in my mind as to whether the plan could be adequately audited, Yet the idea of encouraging increased meat consumption by letting meat prices find their economic level and making up the difference in cash to farmers is probably from the standpoint of sound economics and national policy, the best price support plan which has yet been suggested. It is certainly more sensible than the present product buying program which discoupges consumption by c:iising the price to all Americans at the same time it taxes them for the funds with which to buy up the surplus crops. "It seems to me also that, if there must be price supports, it is better to concentrate support upon the final product of the farm, that is livestock, poultry, and dairy products, than on the feedstuffs with which these end-prod;1cts are produced. Little is gained through locking up huge quantities of corn and other feed grains, which deteriorate despite all precautions, and which in the end have no possible use except as feed for farm meat and dairy animals or flocks. Outside of the strategic carry-over, the sooner these feedstuffs are converted into animals and their products, the better."

Mrs. Albert Nelson, reporter Phone Graham 206 A stork .shower was held Sa tu rda y evening at the horne of Mrs. G. Ellsworth for Mrs. Arthur B,1ydo (Rosy Tinius). Mrs. James Browder and her mother were hostesses. Present, besides the hostesses and honored gnest, were: Mrs. Gloria Van Den Elzen and children, Mrs. Gordon Bolling, Mrs. Darlene: Eby, Molly Fairbanks, Mrs. Robert Bottomley and Mrs. E. G. Tinius. After lunch was served, Rosy opem:d her gifts and found many lovely things for her 1)ew baby. "Mrs, 1\-f. Sorenson and Mrs. Marie Tinius visited at the home of her daughter, .tvlrs. Arthur Baydo of Puyallup. Mr. and l\Jrs, Harold Hamblin of Tacoma wne visitors at the ho1hc of Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Tinius, Sunday.
