The Republicans captured both houses. In 1947 Anderson became deeply involved in the growing debate over long-term agricultural pol- Armour, Norman icy. In order to prevent a ruinous collapse in prices such as that following World War I, Congress had passed the Steagall Amendment of 1942 requiring price supports for all farm commodities be maintained at 90 percent of parity until December 31, 1948. Anderson believed high, rigid prices supports only caused farmers to produce more, which lowered farm prices and led to calls for more government intrusion.
In November 1945 Bowles accepted Anderson’s call for an end to meat rationing because of the difficulty of enforcement. The two men agreed to the gradual elimination of subsidies by June 1946 so long as there would be no net increase in the food price index. However, in January 1946, as inflation mounted, Truman announced the continuation of subsidies. The secretary’s desire to raise farm prices made him appear indifferent to the threat of famine in Europe and renewed inflation at home. Because of the relative prices of meat and grain, it was more profitable for farmers to sell their grain for fodder rather than bring it to the consumer market.
Anderson was successful in many of his initiatives. He helped see through Congress modification of agricultural credit policies, the Agriculture and Marketing Act of 1946, and wool legislation. He also succeeded in reducing cotton surpluses and encouraged technological advancement in farm work. The department under Anderson conserved wheat and reduced the amount of grain for feeding livestock, and he was able to stockpile enough food to meet the requirements of Truman’s Nine Point Famine Relief Program.
