is believed to have come from the
far western range livestock men
who felt that their industry would
be placed in the position of being
taxed for the benefit largely of
the corn belt feed grain producer.
Those favorable to the plan ar­
gued that range livestock men
would benefit along with others
through the national effect on
market prices.
The committee conference in
Washington, which included Her­
man Oliver of John Day, Ore.,
was called specifically to pass up­
on proposed amendments to the
AAA which would have authoriz­
ed such a program. Under the
present law a processing tax can­
not be laid on any commodity
unless benefit payments are made
on the same commodity.
Meanwhile the Washington of­
ficials have announced emphatic­
ally that, contrary to some state­
ments and rumors, the AAA has
no intention of abandoning any
adjustment program now in ef­
fect. While some prices have
reached the pre-war level, the
average price of 14 basic com­
modities is still substantially be­
low parity. That is, a given quan­
tity will not yet stell for enough
to buy as much flon-agricultural
goods as it would before the war.
Mrs. D. C. Cason went to Port­
land Sunday to visit her daughter
Mildred, who is attending a school
for beauty opeartors. Accompany­
ing her were Geraldine and Bus­
ter Cason and Jack Childs.
