BT HARDEX COLFAX
(Copyrig-ht. 1021. by The Oronlan.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 2.
(Special.) Food prices must rise
again and rise soon, before the com
ing of real prosperity. All the farmer
raises Is sold Tor too little; he is re
ceiving 50 to 60-cent dollars for what
he sells and paying 100-cent dollars
for what he buys. The pendulum of
price readjustments has swung too
violently and too far in his direction.
One of two things must happen.
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace be
lieves, before the country can be truly
prosperous. As he sets the dilemma,
the horns are described thus:
1. Farm products and this means
all foodstuffs must advance approx
imately 70 per cent in wholesale
prices to the farmer, or
2. The retail price of everything
else must drop still further, until
the buyerV dollar and the farmer's
dollar are worth exactly the same
amount. Present prospects are that
both movements will be noticeable
ithin a short time.
Tariff Expected to Help.
Increased prices of foodstuffs will
be brought about, to some extent, it is
believed, by the enactment of a tariff
sufficiently high. . to prevent .the
dumping into American markets of
farm products raised abroad, these
products at present beln sold at
prices lower than the cost of 'pro
ducing the commodities on American
farms. Further price reductions on
everything except farm products, it is
hoped, will result from the working
of the economic law whose operation
already has resulted in the farmers'
present plight." .
