Tex.) of the house agriculture committee, said today his committee Is considering processing taxes on wheat, cotton and rice, in seeking additional funds to finance the neiv farm program.

Added to the $450,000,000 already promised for agricultural purposes and certain tariff funds this would provide a total of more than $750,000,000 to finance the new program.
