Gehlhar Says Panaceas are
Broken Down; Foresees
Short Crop in Fall
Agriculture must realise that
its hope for revival cannot lie In
the production of more crops than
the nation can absorb. People
want more things of all descrip
tions but the amount of food they
can consume has a definite limit.
Feed acreage must be definitely
curtailed and surplus production
not encouraged. Such was the
Judgment of Max Gehlhar, In
charge of the department of agri
culture at the capitol, expressed
In luncheon talk to the Salem
Kiwanis club yesterday.
Gehlhar outlined the panaceas
held out tor agriculture and show
ed how each one had broken down.
He Included greater production of
crops, cooperative market
ing, larger units of production, a
stabilization corporation and ad
ditional and refinancing 101ns. All
these methods of farm help had
some good points, Gehlhar declar
ed, but none could solve the vast
problem before farmers.
The plight of agriculture was
shown by Gehlhar through ft ser
ies of statistics. Twenty per cent
of farm Income in 1919 went for
taxes and interest, he said; in
prosperous 1929 this item had ris
en to 40 per cent and is now much
higher. In January. 1933. the
farmer received 52 per cent of
pre-war prices for his products,
he averred: he still had to pay
105 per cent of pre-war prices
for the things he purchased.
Too much spread exists be
tween producers' receipts and con
sumers' costs, Gehlhar declared
He spoke favorably of the do
mestic allotment plan.
Gehlhar said he estimated that
85 per cent of all winter sown
crops in Oregon had been frozen
out. He predicted a short crop
this fall due to a late spring and
lack of time for spring-sown crops
opposes any reduction in disability
allowances or in Spanish-American
war veterans pensions, favors Im
mediate payment of the world war
veterans' bonus and will "fight
against imperialist wars," an an
nouncement of the meeting states.
