Therefore, it seems that this approach might be widely acceptable. Man? letters have been received in the office from the District assailing the 71.8 billion dollar budget of the President. All correspondence demands that the budget be cut and I wholeheartedly agree with this. I am supporting every move to reduce the budget to a more realistic figure, and I will continue to devote my energies toward that end, with a hope and a prayer that waste and needless spending can be more completely eliminated. March 14, 1957 Merwin Coad Your Congressman Congressman Goad's Comments 6ih District Congressman From Iowa Reports On Washington Activities The past two weeks have been most demanding on the time of the Members of Congress. The farm legislation which w a*s brought up, (and which all was defeated) has brought forth the greatest amount of activity I have experienced to date. It was exceedingly u n f o r t u nate that there was no bill whatsoever which came out. * * • Immediately after the House had defeated the farm bill, it was announced by the chairman of the agriculture committee that another attempt would be made to bring out a corn bill immediately if the minority members would work to accomplish this end. At the time of this writing I understand that as yet nothing along this line has been done. * * * Viewing this situation with considerable alarm, I have drawn up a petition addressed to Secretary of Agriculture, Ezra Taft Benson, requesting that if the acreage for the commercial corn area is to remain at 37.3 million acres then the support price should be raised to $1.60 per bushel. In other words, if we can't plant more acres then we should definitely have a higher price. There is a great amount of interest being shown in support of this petition and it is my sincere hope that the .Secretary will do something along this line. No further legislation needs to be enacted for the Secretary to do this and this might be the last hope for a larger net income for our Iowa corn farmers. * * * It is interesting to note that of County TB Unit Meets Mar. 23 The annual Kossuth TB Association meeting and dinner will be held Saturday, Mar. 23, at the Algona Hotel at noon. Chairmen from all over the county will attend. Featured speaker will be Dr. Paul M. Seebohm, director of the pulmonary function laboratory of Iowa University's Department of Interna.1 Medicine. He will also show slides on diseases of the chest and TB.
