^TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11.1949 Truman Favors Parity Set at 90% Lawmaker Quotes President Following White House Call WASHINGTON, Oct. 11. m — Rep. Cecil f. W'i'te (D-Callf) quoted President Truman yesterday as saying he strongly favors 90 per cent parity price supports for the basic farm crops. White s'ald he called on Mr. Truman to urge him to support 90 per cent price props as against the flexlbte 75 to 90 per cent supports In the farm bill now before the Senate. "The President Informed me he has been supporting 90 per cent all 1 along and will continue to do so in accordance with his promises to the people in '.he last campaign,'" White told reporters. In view of the Senate's rejection of the 90 per cent supports last week, White said, the battle for them will probably have to ried over Into the next session of Congress beginning in January. He said Mr. Truman told him he "Isn't-going to attempt to interfere" with Congress's action on the pending farm bill. ' The Californlan added that both he and the President hope to get a farm law carrying out their Ideas, "if not at this session, then In . the next."
