Congressman Goad's Comments toh Ffem Iowa Rapdrtt On LEGf§LAf ION This week, the big item cut in the Administration's budget for 1958 was the $500,000,000 appropriation for the Soil Bank program. • It was in the best interests of the people of the Sixth District that 1 voted in opposition to this cut. Without funds with which to operate, the Soil Bank program was in effect cancelled for the 1958 crop by the House action. However, this cut does not have any effect on the Soil Bank agreements now in effect for the 1957 crop and, of course, the Senate must also act on this appropriation bill before it becomes law. Two main reasons. which were set forth by those who favored this amendment, were: 1. The recent admission by the Secretary of Agriculture Benson that the present farm program, including flexible supports and the Soil Bank, is not working, and 2. The great pressure from the American people to hold the line on spending. The present farm program, in my opinion, is not the answer to the cost-price squeeze which is so evident % all of rural America. However, killing the Soil Bank program by strangulation (choking off the funds by which it operates) is not the answer. Another, amendment to the Agriculture's appropriation bill was" one designed to take out entirely loan authorization provisions of the Rural Electrification Administration. This amendment was rejected and I helped to defeat it. * » * COMMITTEE MEETINGS The Committee on Banking and Currency continued hearings on extension of the Small Bus! ness Act, as amended. Wendell Barnes, Administrator, Small Business Administration, is pre sently up loaf questioning by members of the Committee. Due to the press of my committee work, 3t was unable to attend the Fedef-al Power Commission's heariifg last Wednesday, and because I fe3t that Iowa coffl- munities seeking natural gas set* vice should be heard, I sent the following telegram to Mr Jerome K. Kuykendall, Chairman, Federal Power Commission: "1 solicit your favorable consideration of request cf the many Iowa communities seeking natural gas service. This extension of service will be most welcome and beneficial to our Iowa people." • * * Statistic* OA Cdtn Acreage The tTnited States total indicated acres planted to sorghums for 195? is 26,4^0,000 acres or nearly 5 million acres more than the 1956 plantings of 21,503,000 acres. United States totals for corn acres indicate 74,410,000 acres to be planted this year, which is nearly 4 million acres less than the 78,557,000 acres planted in 1956. These are Department of Agriculture statistics. Your Congressman Merwin Coad 3 Collisions In County, 4 Days Three mishaps were investigated in this area during the May 12 weekend.
