Page Fourteen THE DAILY REPUBLIC, Mitchell, S. D., Monday, May 16,1960 Says Republican Farm Policy Slill Set By Benson PIERRE UP) — Congressional aspirant Ray Fitzgerald Jr. says It's clear Agriculture Secretary Ezra Benson is still calling the shots on Republican farm policy. Fitzgerald, former state agriculture secretary who is seeking the Democratic nomination for First District Congress, said the only program the Republicans seem to have is to block the Democrat programs. "One has only to check the record," Fitzgerald said," to find that Secretary Benson himself set the tune in leading the distorted attacks on the Poage-Mc Govern bill, and the Republican politicians quickly fell In line." Saying that farm prices have fallen 34 'per cent since this administration came Into office, Fitzgerald said "farmers have a right to expect much more than a program of negativism. "But while honest people sincerely toil to improve the farm situation, Benson and his backers have only had carping criticism to offer. "In spite of the fact that the President has vetoed five bills to Increase far Income," Fitzgerald said in a press release." the number one economic need of this nation Is to boost farm prices to a decent level so both farm people and the town people in rural America can prosper as they Bhould."

Asserts GOP Speakers All Against Farmers MILLER W) — Democratic ex egptive secretary Jack Weiland has criticized Republicans "for importing-out-of-state speakers into South Dakota to make personal attacks on Rep. George McGovern." Weiland referred to David Mol- throp of Falls Church, Va., who has called Me Govern a spokesman of labor bosses in talks over the state. Weiland said Molthrop's sponsorship has been cloaked in secrecy "but since he has pointedly made a vicious attack on Me Govern in each appearance, his purpose in being here Is apparent."
