Shuman Blames Gov’t Programs
For The Farm “Mess We’re In”
Says Stockpile Buildup
- Was A Deliberate Act
By Everett Newswanger
Lancaster Farming Editor
A national farm figure told
a capacity crowd m the Holi
i day Inn Ball Room, Tuesday
night, that he believes we are
going' to get out of the mess
we’re in because farmers are
I realizing that government pro
grams are the cause of then*
Charles B. Shuman, presi
dent of the American Farm Bu
reau Federation, said three
fourths of all farmers want to
get rid of the farm govern
ment programs
'Speaking at the annual ban
quet of the Lancaster County
Farmers Association (the local
AFBF affiliate), Shuman again

said he didn’t hate -. Freeman -

sumers irritated by a continu
ing rise in the cost of living
resulting from government-fed
' inflation. Ironically, the ‘cheap
food’ policy, which is based on
the politics that consumers (94

considerable margin, has not
benefitted consumers. The con
sumer price index took a fur
ther jump last month, and
some economists predict retail
food prices will rise from three
to five percent next year
