st:. 1 PAGE 4 THE.TIPTOdl Next Congress Has Big Job, EDITOR'S NOTE: Following is the sixth and final dispatch in a series dealing with President Johnson's new legislative proposals. A UPI veteran on agricultural policy reports that city congressmen hold the key to the success or failure of the Johnson farm program. By BERNARD BRENNER United Press international WASHINGTON (UPI)—president Johnson's package of arm hills for the new 89th Congress probably will include a plan under which farmers could draw federal payment's for idling millions of acres of low-grade cropland.. The proposal will be familiar to legislators who approved a somewhat similar program in the 1950's. In that respect at least it will be similar to other farm legislative battles shaping up in Congress. • They will deal -mostly with continuing or patching up old ; farm-aid program — not with efforts to strike out in completely new directions. Law Expires In 1965. Included are price-propping and production control plans for wheat, cotton and feed grains. Legislation covering all three commodities is due to expire at the end of the 1965 crop season. Prospects that the President will get all or most of what he proposes may have been brightened by Democratic congressional gains in the 1964 election. But in recent Jjears the Congress — especially the increasingly-urban House — has been increasingly unenthusiastic about farm bills. "We've got to sell these bills to the city boys. If it doesn't appeal to them, we're out of luck," said Chairman Harold D. Cooley, D-N.C, of the House Agriculture Committee. Ce^iej »aid he was braced for a hard fight on extending the current cotton subsidy program and on several other items. But Cooley also indicated he hopes to collect more GOP farm belt support on agricultural bills than he has had in most recent years. Outside Of Politics 'There's a chance we can c oiisider agriculture next year above the realm of partisan politics," Cooley said. Administration proposals for 1965 have not yet been made public. But if Johnson follows the recommendation of most of his advisory groups, Ihe package will include: Land-Retirement: A prgram under which farmers would be offered federal payments for taking marginal cropland out of production under contracts running 10 years or more.-Administration advisers want this plan geared to idle up to 40 million acres by 1970. Grains: Continuation through 1966 and several more years of existing programs under which farmers who voluntarily idle part of their wheat and feed grain acreage qualify for government, price supports and land-diversion payments. Possible changes include a proposal by administration advisers to allow wheat growers to divert some of their acreage under the diversion-payment system used for feed grains. The wheat plan gives cooperating growers price supports in two sections — a government support-loan plus a cash-value Wall Street Chatter NEW YORK (UPI) —Bradbury K . Thrulow of Winslow, Cohu & Stetson, Inc., says one cannot rule out the possibility of a "blowoff" in the market in the next few days. However, Thurlow believes that tax considerations will he the ruling force in the market in the next few weeks and the overall patter will continue to be erratic and meaningless as compared with the performance of individual stocks. . Thomson & McKinnon believes that. as technical stumbling blocks lie ahead, as they probably do, fresh opportunities will crop up from time to time for purchases in anticipation of a traditional year-end rally. Clark, Doge & Co. says that rather than follow strength, it is best for the trader to let the bubble burst and then look for bargains in the aftermah. Newton D. Zinder of E. F. Hutton & Co. Inc. says the deteriorating leadership in the market, as shown by many of the most active issues, would seem to lend credence to the view that some caution could now be exercised even though the eventual market high seems some distance' away. marketing certificate which are sold to processors. Feed grain growers get a combination of support loans and direct federal price support payments. Cotton: Extension of the controversial program, first adopted last year, under which federal subsidies are used to bring the cost of cotton to U.S. textile mills down to the low world-price level. Wool: Extension of ah existing program under which wool growers sell their crop for whatever the market will pay. The difference between the market price and a higher support level is covered by'a direct government payment. Comparatively little controversy is expected on this item. Sugar: Proposals to re%nact, possibly in revised form, legislation setting up sugar import quotas and attempting to settle a battle over expansion of domestic, beet sugar acreage. President sugar import legislation expires Dec. 31, but the import "controls will be kept in effect beyond that date by administrative action. . Consider Other Items This list is far from complete. Other items may include efforts to get new legislation to boost the income of dairy farmers, and a plan to base federal tobacco controls on pundage instead of acreage: Administration officials have indicated they will favor poundage controls for tobacco if the idea wins support from growers. Another major phase of administration farm policy in 1965 will probably include requests for increased appropriations to continue expansion of the 4 food stamp plan for improving the diets of needy families. Johnson may also request increased funds for rural com! munity development programs aimed ^ at . fighting poverty among low-income farmers and other depressed rural citizens. All in all, it shapes up as the busiest session in years as far as farm legislation is concerned —,and probably one of the most ; important ADVERTISEMENT ...
