Parity Farm Prices
Hood River, Nov. 17 Only when
industry and labor realize that ag
riculture must have a parity place
in the national economic picture can
a permanent and sound prosperity
come to this nation, R. W. Blackburn,
secretary of the American Farm Bu
reau Federation, told the Oregon
State Farm Bureau convention here
Blackburn emphasized that re
peated surveys and observations of
facts have revealed beyond any
doubt that the nation as a whole
can only prosper in direct relation
ship to the welfare of its agricul
Speaking of the complex relation
ships now existing in our national
economy Blackburn said: "The ob
jectives of all three groups indus
try, labor and agriculture are iden
tical. They want national prosperity,
That is one thing that all are agreed
"Industry and labor must even
tually recognize the fact that our
complex economic system, based up
on mass factory production, simply
cannot operate successfully on a
stabilized basis unless farm com
modity prices, industrial prices and
industrial wages are brought into
parity relationship so that all groups
may have the buying power to ab
sorb the products of industry year
after year in large volume."
Striking at the so-called "econ
omy of scarcity" Blackburn de
clared: "Industry and labor must re
alize too that the only way to in
crease national wealth is through the
greater production and use or goods
and services. Agriculture has done
its part, is doing its part, and will
continue to do its part."
"Farmers produce an abundance
at fair prices. Industry and labor,
too, have generally tried to better
their individual position through
monopoly approach. The protective
tariff system, the trend to huge cor
porate units of industry, the trade
association idea all of these have
tended to monopolistic control. It
was natural that labor should take
its cue from industry's practices and
try to solve the problem of individ
ual members by limiting member
ship and keeping hourly wages
"High wages are greatly to be de
sired, but only when such wages
are fair. We know from experience
that production and use of goods
can proceed in normal volume only
when industrial prices, industrial
wages and commodity prices are in
balance. Intelligent, economic states

that balance. That, after all, is all
there is to the parity concept price
and wage' levels that will permit
maximum consumption of goods and
services by a maximum number of
people at all times."
"We invite we even challenge
labor and industry to meet us on
the common ground of parity."
Blackburn reviewed the evolution
of the present price basis between
farmers and other groups, pointing
out that agriculture and particularly
organized agriculture through the
Farm Bureau has been engaged in
a long fight to obtain parity levels.
He predicted that through a con
tinuation of such efforts that econ
omic level would eventually be

State Had 157 People
A Century Ago
Oregon Writers Project, WPA
Oregon's total white population
in 1839 numbered 157; the first post
office west of the Rockies was es
tablished at Astoria on March 9,
1847; and an 1863 miner's two-day

few of the historical sidelights list
ed in the Oregon Almanac for 1940
written by the Oregon Writers' pro

gonians agreed that the state's great
est need was "at least one through
fare over which travelers may pass
at any season of the year," and that
a little more than a half century la

the construction of many Oregon
