!: . a; ; yoluntary' Allotment Plan
TN all the areas of distress for wliich "plans'' have been pro-
X posed agriculture has called for the greatest number. Ever
sfnee the war fanning has been in trouble. There was a sort
of plateau from 1923 to 1930 in which agriculture managed
la keep afloat i but the last toboggan of prices has left farm
ing deep in the mire. It is reported that Governor Roosevelt
looks with favor upon what is known as the "voluntary allot
ment"' plan. It will be of interest therefore to see what this
proposes for the relief of the farmer.
V Each major commodity would be organized under some
council, which would determine on an acreage reduction in
order to cut down production. In each county the county
committee would go, tojeach grower of that crop, say of
wheat. The grower could agree to join or could stay out as
he saw fit. The grower who joined would agree to reduce his
wheat acreage by the determined percentage, say 25. If
he had -160 acres to put in wheat normally then he would
crop only 120 acres in wheat. For the 40 acres which he did
not crop in wheat he would receive allotment certificates
which would equal in number the number of acres cropped
multiplied by the average production per acre for the pre
vious five years. In this case if the average production was
20 bushels per acre, then the grower would get allotment cer
tificates equaling 120 times 20 or 2400.
All wheat would be sold at present on the regular mar
ket prices. However on all domestic consumption a tax of
42 cents a bushel would be levied on Chills or processors. The
total of this would amount to several hundred million dollars.
From this sum the expense of administration would be de
ducted and the remainder divided pro rata among the hold
ers of the allotment certificates, an amount estimated at
.around 38c per bushel for all wheat grown and sold under
the plan. The farmer who did not cooperate in the plan
would receive no share of this tax money.
. This is simply a subsidy for the growers of the com
modities, taken not directly out of the treasury, but out of
" a tax-raised fund derived from consumers. The defense is
that the tariff now is not effective because we export these
surpluses at world prices.
Among objections to the plan, besides the complaint of
subsidy and the creation of a big bureaucracy to operate the
I plan, are: increasing of costs to consumers while foreign la-

That is quite true, except that in Oregon we have no
party leadership. The old leadership was rebuked two

V There are a few of the old guard left here and there, like
Ratoh Williams who as national committeeman has two
empty years now to serve.

from his reply, showing the Inde
pendent and fearless spirit of the
pioneer preacher:
In regard to preaching poll-
tics, I beg leave to enter my most
decided objection to the use of
that term .... If ... . you mean
by 'politics' those great moral
questions of Justice, righteous
ness, temperance and the fear of
God without which the prosperity,
peace and safety of a people can
never long continue, then, in that
sense, I nave preached politics
and by the blessing of God I hope
long to preach it .... If ws had
little more of Christian honesty
in the officers of our government
we should be better off as a peo
ple. Ministers ought to be permit
ted to preach on these subjects as
faithfully as upon any other. Min
isters now as in the early history
of our country hare a duty to per
form. They must not be excluded
from performing their part in the
formation of a right public senti
ment In reference to the admin
istration of the offices of the nation."
