Using actual average prices for the preceding ten years in this way would allow for changes constantly taking place in agriculture. It would have the further advantage of maintaining a fair relationship between basic feed crops and the livestock products into which feed is converted. "It would be folly to discard the 1910-14 period as a base, for there has been no other period during the past 50 years in which prices were stable and in which economic relationships between groups were so equitable." Universal Formula Terming the present formula for figuring parity on dairy and livestock products as "unsatisfactory," he declared agriculture, as a whole, will be much better off if the different groups unite on a universal formula such as he outlined. O'Neal stated the marketing agreements program has been so useful that it would be well to make some changes in the law t° permi...

Goal Pogsible Under this bill the goal would be to make it possible for you to buy the plant food you need for your own soil. It would modernize the formulas for farm fertilizers. It would eliminate the wasteful processing of unneeded inert matter. It would eliminate costly transportation of these unnecessary elements. It would save the unnecessary labor involved in the present wasteful and outmoded system. It would reduce the cost To Meet Rising Labor Costs Good Seed and the Right Fertilizer Manpower is still the scarcest and the costliest item in the production of farm crops. To offset mounting labor costs, farmers must plan to produce more per man-hour.

February, 1946 Removal of Consumer Food Subsidies STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT O'NEAL TO OFFICE OF WAR MOBILIZATION AND RECONVERSION BOARD (January 21, .1946) At the beginning of this statement, I would like to make it perfectly clear that I favor price control. Our record on this important problem is clear. In the long run, the American farmer will probably suffer more from inflation than will any other major group in our society. I would also like to make it perfectly clear that in demanding the removal of consumer subsidies I am not asking for a price increase for farmers. lam simply asking that payments from the federal treasury to subsidize the consumer's food bill be discontinued, and that prices be adjusted accordingly. This would not put more dollars in the pockets of farmers. It would simply get rid of one unnecessary artificiality in the price-making mechanism for agricultural products. We may as well face the realistic fact that there is never a good time to get rid of subsidie...
