HATF1ELD WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Johnson's action last week to clamp a lid on dairy imports won almost universal approval from dairymen and lawmakers, but there is still widespread feeling that ihe action does not go far enough. As a result, dairy state legislators en capitol hill ana some leading farm groups will continue Io push for passage of a bill to put even stricter restrictions on dairy imports. The bill, sponsored by S e n. William Proxmire, D-Wis., and co-sponsored by 56 other senators and 117 congressmen, would put a permanent lid on imports, Proxmire says Johnson's action, which limited imports fo about 1 billion pounds instead of the 4.5 billion pounds which had been expected this year, is an "important stop-gap measure." But, he adds, "This action does not eliminate the need for my bill. My proposal would set permanent controls while t h e President's decision may be changed administratively at any time in thefutute. Furthermore, my legislation would lower still further the limit on dairy imports." is drawing from Sen. D-Li, Congress will approve tighter controls. If it does, the President's authority to change import quotas under Section 22 of the Agricultural Adjustment Act would be limited, "Trade Is a two-way street, YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL but under no circumstances can PARK Wyo.

WASHINGTON (UPI}-President Johnson is riding a new wave of popularity both in the public opinion polls and with the Democratic governors. Only a fev months ago, the governors were grumbling about his party leadership and the pollsters reported Johnson's and foreign policies, rating with the voters at an all- time low. But the President's handling ol the Middle East crisis and his two summit meetings with Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin have spurred a dramatic comeback. A Louis Harris poll published this week gave Johnsonhissingle biggest popularity gain among voters since he entered the White House. The poll indicated that 58 per cent of the American people now feel Johnson is doing a good to excellent job President. In contrast, only 47 per cent gave him a favorable rating in May.

States sharing in the release of seed areldaho, Nevada, Arizona, California and Oregon. Washoe is a purple-flowered alfalfa with upright plant growth. It is comparable to Lahontan in uniformity and fall dormancy, but slight slower in recovery after cuffing and in spring growth. In three years of testing at Parma, Washoe produced more forage than Ranger and Lahon- lan, bu! less than DuPuils, Its performance in comparison with the other varieties was fairly consistent for all cuttings. In tests at Twin Falls, Washoe yielded 98 per cent of Ranger, compared with 88 and 91 per cent for DuPuits and Lahontan. At nearly every harvest, and particularly at firs! culling, Kolar said, Washoe was belter than Lahontan.
