Haugen Export Corporation bill? To
equalise the farmer's dollar with the
other man's dollar.
How will It accomplish this purpose?
By the establishment of an export
agency to handle wheat an<L other
major farm products If and when nec­
essary. under provisions which will
maintain legitimate prices.
Boes this mean the government la
going Into the general farm marketing
business? No, it wiU operate through
regular channels, and deal only as
necessary to maintain proper prices.
Will it destroy cooperative market­
ing? It will encourage cooperative
marketing by assisting cooperative as-
soctattons In a task which ’they cannot
accomplish without such aid.
What effect will it have on the mill­
ers? It will relieve millers from the
danger of serious price fluctuations,
due to speculation or other cause.
What will it do to present prices of
farm products? It will increase pres­
ent prices for wheat from 40 to 00
cents a bushel, hog prices about 40
¡»er cent, cattle about 90 per cent, etc.
Will it increase production? Not

ucts increase. It does for the farmer
only what other« legislation already is
