AGRICULTURAL PREPAREDNESS: Extracts from an address by Cl-udc R.
Wickard, Secretary of Agriculture, at
Farm and Hoione Week, Purdue University,
La.fayette, Indiana, January 15, 1941

"... I ask you to think hard end straight with me on certain

.-spects of our farm problem here this afternoon and I hope our dis-

cussion may be with an open mind.

"I believe that if I were to ask a group of farmers or agri-

cultural leaders or economists (including the Government variety),

'Wvhat is tho reason we arc exporting so little wheat or corn or

cotton or lard this year?', I would receive a reply in unison: 'The

rart'. But it would be in error if we sa.y thr.t World w.r No. 2

is the- sole cause for our almost complete loss of exports and that

as soon as war ends we--- will h.ve what we think of as 'normal' ex-

ports. .

"The facts anrs that the trend of .merinan farm exports has

been -domwnward since the turn of the century. Now I don't mean to

sBay thr-t the decline h-s batn constant. You know bettor than that.

It has bccn by fits 2n.z starts. Exports shot up during the World

War days. But they'had been declining before that for 15 years. Ex-

ports Cell iff like a stone dropped front a tower after the Smoot

HBTlay Trtif Le;t of 1930.

"But here is the important thing to remember: the long-tine

trend in r-r exports is -down.mard.. The fact of the zr.wt-ter is that











in th- p:st 20 yu rs our only r.ctlcu thr.t offered r. royal solution to

thc prcblcn of lost cvports for ;j-rican products wrs the Reciprocc.1l

"If it is iriprobrblc tY.rt our exports v.ill ruturn to what we

think of :-.s 'ncr-11' volumnl, than isn't it in. the interest of far-

mrrs, and thu nation, to l.y luturi pl-an.s accordingly? In view of

our prrccnt l-rzc r c rivds i.L' or r.bilit, to stop up production

rapidly if export o',tlots shrr id develop, I can't believe tlhr.t any-

of us will simply reply, 'Roduce production' Again, I wisht it wire

as simple to do that as it ist to say it.

"In the case of at least onu normodity -- cotton -it seer.s

to mae we nust return to the action described by our term 'agricul-

tural adjustment' -- not rarercly to tho idea of reduction. I know a

lot of you people who have been in county planning work have cor.oe to

the conclusion that I have reached and which I have stated to Con-

grcssional Corn ittecs: 'It is not difficult to see whet w' should do

vith our land to preserve its fertility, stop erosion, and create

better sized and bettor orgnrnized faming units, economically speak-

ing. The trouble cones Ahem we try to place the people who would be

driven off the land by such changes in land utilization.'

"The first thing we riust r.;lir.c is that we can't reduce the

number of people waho live on cotton frrns, or wheat farnis, or tobacco

farms, in the sane proportion that we reduce the acror.ges of these

coTr-odities. The f-ict of the matter is that agricultural population

has been. increasing because our surplus fam. people -ouldn't find a

place in city industries. It is my hope that there can be greatly in-

-reased industrial expr-nsion in areas wh'r-re we have the problem of too

.Lnyn people end too low incor.vs because of lost markets. .
