Phere has been so much effort to muddy the water and

vent a clear understanding of. parity and ceiling prices that
eat part of the reading public is very much confused.

When you go into a house you walk on the floor and the

You cannot go any lower than the floor nor can you go
any higher than the ceiling.

When we say that a floor has been placed on the price
a commodity we mean that the price of that commodity can-

Actual parity for cotton today as provided in the A YI:

_This means that the Price DN dairistentor can fix a ceilin:
at 22c on cotton. 22c is 13 cents less than actual parity.
Under the price control law Henderson is authorized
fix a ceiling on cotton at 13c less than parity.

Ceilings and Parity

ing to make money because he knows that the price
annot go beyond the ceiling.
_ It is but human nature for the speculators to sell
0 ton short around the ceiling price. The speculator
tuaranteed against loss when he sells cotton short.
otton cannot go up to make him lose. If it goes
own he wins.
_ The speculator is practically guaranteed a profit
by the Government if he will get on the bearish side
of the market and sell the farmer short.
_ The fake parity fixed by Wickard on cotton is
72 cents. This is 3 cents under the ceiling and it
is 16 cents under parity as provided in the Agricul-
iral Adjustment Act. Wickards fake parity is $80.-
0 per bale less than actual parity.
Actual parity on cotton is 35.
2c. Wickard fixed parity as 18.72 cents. The Gov-
ynment loan on cotton is 85% of Wickards fake
ity, which is 16 cents.
~ The only guarantee that the farmer has as to the
price of cotton is the Government loan. Since the
overnment loan on cotton is 16c the Governmet is
nly guaranteeing the farmer 16c of the 35c actual
parity for his cotton crop. The Government only guar-
antees the farmer 45% of actual parity.
_ So long as the Government owns stocks of cotton
it is impossible for cotton to go very much above
Wickards fake parity because the Government in+
bly threatens to dump Government stocks on the
jarket whenever there is an advance in prices.

Isit any wonder that farmers who have struggled
ith their families for years trying to pay taxes, in-
yest on land bank mortgages, etc., are being con-
inually driven from their homes? oe
.. Think of the United States Department of
riculture going to South America and guarantee-
he cotton growers of South America a market for
sir cotton for the next five years when the Ameri-
can farmer is only being protected to the extent of
of his cost of production.
Think of the general public in the United States
being continually told through the newspapers, over
the radio, in motion pictures, and through every medi-
| of propaganda at Government expense, that the
mer is swimming in gravy. That he is causing in-
flation. That he has banded himself together to force
mreasonable prices for farm production. | That the
armer is responsible for the high cost of living of
y dwellers. oh
Think of the farmer being slandered, and hav-
to furnish his own money to the United States De-
vent of Agriculture to pay for this slander.
n the United States Senate the forty-eight states
t on complete equality. Each state has two Sena-
regardless of the size of the State.
This year thirty-two of these Senators must stand
lection. You have their records. Some of their
ecords shine forth as patriots who should be return-
d without fail. Some of them have fallen by the
jayside. Some of them are straddlers.
