MATTER OF VIEWPOINT
Fearing that eggs will drop In, price
to' 10 cents a dozen unless some dras
tic action is taken to bolster the mar
kot, U. S. producers now clamor that
a tariff bo placed against importation
of Chinese" hen fruit. '
It is sot forth that there are on
hand 1,883,959 cases of eggs and every
case contains 30 dozen. The normut
supply Is about one-ninth of this
amount or about 207,000 cases. Lam
year at this time the stock on hand
was only 121,733 cases, in 1919 there
were available at this date only 319,
508 cases. Much of this overload of
eggs has come from the republic of
China and other foreign countries,
A delegation of poultry people from
Iowa, Petalump, Cal, the native home
of the cackle berry, and the Poultry
'Kaisers' association of Oregon have
protested against the further importa
tions of Chinese eggs and urge a stiff
tariff on all imported eggs.
With the egg price slumped below
get it, lie quits business and an Amor
lean industry suffers.
The case servos to emphasize the
fact that we all want a tariff wall
erected upon tho thing wo produce or
'make. We want to be sure of a good
profit. Yet we'd like the other fellow
to sell his product as cheaply as pos
sible, the cheaper the better.'
Ten cent eggs don't cause any wild
walling among those who enjoy a
pair of prime eggs for breakfast and
do not keep hens. Certainly not. Those
who relish this kind of breakfast food
may be tempted into a pleased sniite
by the announcement. But the produc
ers they are crying aloud. They are
It's certainly impossible to pleSso
