KARL MUNDT'S FARM PROGRAM EMBRACES THE FOLLOWING SEVEN POINTS
1 — The immediate repeal of the Reciprocal Trade Treaties with Canada
and other nations. We must restore the American Market to the American Farmer.
2 — The reduction of interest rates to farm borrowers. America is most
secure and South Dakota most stable when our farmers own their farm
homes and farm their own land. Legislation should be enacted to secure
the low-interest objectives of the Frazier-Lemke bill.
3 — Government assistance and subsidies or bounties should be provided
for farm-developing rather than farm-restricting measures. Water conservation, erosion-prevention, and tree planting should be encouraged
by Government aid and such assistance should be made available to the
farmer who will develop such projects on his own farm and not limited
to improvements made on the public domain.
4 — A practical program of Crop Insurance should be developed and he
would support such a program vigorously.
5 — Drouth sufferers should be aided by Seed and Feed Loans repayable in kind on a bushel for bushel basis with no stipulation for cash payments.
6 — Alf Landon's plan amending the Federal Warehouse Act so that the
farmer may crib up and bin in his crops in insurable places and secure a
Federal Warehouse certificate on which money can be borrowed.
7 — The development of a two-price system of marketing so that the
products of "the family type farm" can be sold at a profit for the producer to the full extent of our national domestic consumption. In other
words, "A Fair Price for a Full Crop."
