"It enables an adrqlnts- tratlon to promise a farmer high prices and a consumer low prices at the same time. "The Idea Is that the difference it charged to the taxpayers, but In the long run the consumer and the farmer pay most of the taxes and so they really do not get the benefits which are promised them. In fact, they get a bill lor the benefits almost before they receive them." Talk Billed ai "Major" Taft's Grand Jorka talk was billed in advance by his aides as a major farm address. The Ohloan has said he won't decide until later In the 'year whether he will actively seek. the 1952 Republican Presidential nomination. •Taft said he regards minimum price supports for any commodity as generally Inconsistent with the free price competitive system, but he added he believes "special con- Pemiscot District Scout Meet Set CARUTHERSVILLE, Sept. 21 — The annual meeting of the Pemiscot District of the Boy Scouts of America will be held in the Haytl Grade School gymnasium Oct. 10, District Chairman Denver Flke said today.

The Reds who were not killed or wounded tried to escape in the mountain foliage. Warplanes took up the attack with screaming strafing dives. The Reds opened fire on an Allied patrol. U.N. officers said this was a clear indication that they intended treachery, since they had been told to leave their arms behind. On anolher sector of the front, a surrender offer by 22 Red Koreans turned out to be genuine. Stunned by air attacks they laid down their weapons, raised their hands high and crossed to U.N. lines.
