HOLMGREN WRITES ON SUGAR BEET SITUATION a declining sugar price, but that is exactly what he has done. I don't If thpv Unnm thof gffsr nuntm 9 can be chanced, but thev outrht to be reversed and reduced in behalf of at .v. u v , r (Continued from Page One) the high minimum schedule established by Secretary Wallace. I could hire my other beet work done on the open labor market, and the going price e was 40 cent per ton for a haul. I could hire 1374 tons of beets delivered to the dump for $5496.60. In the estimate of cost of production of the state sugar beet committee $3.50 is allowed per acre for plowing and harrowing and picking up lost beets per acre. I had 69 acres of beets at $3.50 per acre, would make $241.50. One man with a truck hauled beets to the factory and hauled pulp back to the farm. This work, I estimated as the extra half man service I have included in the deal. After it got stormy I hired a man to run the tractor to pull out the beet haulers. Thus five and a half men earned from the above figures $549.60 plus $241.50, a total of $791.10 this beet harvest season. Each average teamster with his outfit earned $141.10 or $7.92 more than the average topper with only a beet knife. In other words I furnished nine good horses and harnesses, a bee t plow, two beet wagons, a truck the time, and a tractor, with feed for the horses and gas for the tractor to earn a total of $42.56 all season to equal that of five and a half beet toppers' wages. At this rate a hauler could earn $7.92 more all season by furnishing an excellent team, a modernized rubber tired wagon and a dirt tight box than an average beet toppeT with a beet knife. You can readily see an adjustment of prices on wages with labor is badly needed. I was fortunate that my toppers did not strike for higher wages which many farmers were forced to pay after the weather turned wet and cold and threatened fo freeze their crop in. In some cases, farmers paid as high as $2.50 per ton to harvest their beets. This high wage scale forced n positive money loss to these farmers who actually produced a good crop. Perhaps a more serious matter confronts the beet grower for the coming year. The price of beets is about $1.00 per ton less than it was last year, but due to the excellent yield the past season the total receipts from beets will permit a slight profit in most cases in spite of the low price for beets. But what does the future price outlook offer, Three drops of 10 cents each for 100 pounds of sugar in the past six weeks has emphasized to the processors that they have perhaps overpaid the farmers for their beets in the Initial payment. I have no grievence with labor befor their tedious and ing arduous beet work so long as the farmers and processors share in the profits of the crop. To insist that labor be assured $22.50 per average beet acre for their work and nothing guaranteed for the processor or the farmer, I believe is unfair. The solution of this problem, it seems to me, is in the reduction of the importation quotas of sugar. The beet quotas are set by the secretary of agriculture, indirectly through his power to estimate per capata consumption of sugar. It is trabic to believe he would increase the island quotas in spite of Utah. Our farms are comparatively small which necessitates intensive crop farming on our irrigated land or immigration of ourself to a place wnere worn can oe aiioraea is me natural result. Graduates from our high schools have cost the state over $700.00 per student.
