Have you received your chain
letter? Several have arrived at
this household, indicating that our
friends are becoming impatient at
prosperity lingering “just around
the corner” and are going to try
to start something themselves.
Officials have become suddenly
zealous in behalf of our institu
tions, veiled, threats of prosecution
being heard. The chain letter
method of bringing on prosperity
may be as effectual as some of the
schemes promulgated by federal
authority, but both have the fatal
defect of creating no new wealth,
an element essential to a sound
prosperity. F S.

About a third of the Nebraska
Corn-hogassications have had their
listing sheets approved in the State
Board of Review office in Lincoln
and are completing applications
and contracts or have already
signed up group I contracts.
In this county the status of the
corn-hog program is as follows:
Listing sheets are being com
pleted and will be ready to go to
Lincoln very shortly. The group
one contracts, those with the same
land and hog base as last year will
then be ready to be signed within
the next two weeks.
County allotment committeemen,
agricultural agents and office work
ers and the district representa
tives of the state board of review
are busy now establishing the corn
and hog bases of individuals who
signed up additional land or who
are signing a contract for the first
time this year. Each of these cases
requires personal attention and.
considerable time will be needed to
finish up some of them. Contract
signers who signed up again this
year about the same as they did in
1934 will have their contracts fin
ished and on the way to Washing
ton within the next few days. Every
effort is being made by all counties
in the state to finish the job for
the majority of the signers by the
end of corn planting time.

'Wheat Program Paid For
By F. M, Reece
Since the wheat adjustment pro
gram began in July, 1933, all of
the money for benefit payments
and administrative expense has
been raised by a processing tax of
30 cents per bushel on wheat. Dur
ing that time the wheat section has
never used a drop of red ink. At
the present time the financial bal
ance of the wheat section at Wash
ington is such that a reserve has
been set aside to oieet any emer
gency, and the business of the
wheat association is in Spch shape
that no one need worry about the
future of the wheat program.
W’ith this kind of a report on the
government books at Washington,
wheat contract signers can say
very emphatically to any critc that
the wheat adjustment program has
not saddled a future debt on the
grandchildren of the present gen
eration and it hr.s worked no par
ticular hardship upon producers,
processors or consumers during the
past two years.
The processing tnxlif 30 cents per
bushel on wheat prepared for hu
man food raises the price of a pound
loaf of bread about half a cent.
Consumption of flour during the
past two years has not varied to
any extent from the normal con
sumption of the past few years.
Practically all of the processing
tax on wheat has befen paid by the
consumers, and, the consumers’
buying power has increased in the
last two years more rapidly than
the price of bread. &0 far as Ne
braska is concerned wheat pay
mentscoming into th'^state amount
to $7 or $8 for every $1 paid in
directly by Nebraska consumers
into the wheat processing tax fund.
