PROMISE IS MADE Continued From First Page. brought to the farms and pledged continuation of such efforts along with a fair-minded administration quick to recognize and meet new problems. There was no crop insurance pledge, such as had been advocated by Secretary Wallace. It favored production of "all the market will absorb both at home and abroad plus a reserve supply sufficient to insure fair prices to consumers." It favored also loans on seasonal surpluses and. retirement of sub-marginal lands. Townsend Flank Out. A battle in committee over the Townsend old age pension plan, or some variation, did not materialize. The plan was suggested and voted down. Instead, the pledge was made to build foundations for the security of those who are faced with the hazards of unemployment and old, age. This was to be based on the Social Security Act. Collective bargaining was mentioned as something already written into the law. Credit was taken for increasing the worker's own pay and shortening his hours. The platform also pledged extension of the housing program, to just treatment for war veterans and their dependents, new opportunity for youth, drought and flood relief, and guardianship of civil liberties. TODAY Continued From First Page. ty compared to nature's cruelty. Nature allows one young fish to live, she kills forty thousand, and her race discriminations and hatreds would seem more intense than the hatreds and cruelties of the most viciously prejudiced human being. For instance, in one big American city statistics show "three times as many negroes and whites, in proportion to population, from tuberculosis every year." And nature's cruelty and her statistics cannot be reached through legislation. You don't wonder that crime, is a safe industry in the United States when the lawyer of a criminal can say to one of the prosecutors, "sell out to my client, and I will put you on the Supreme Court bench, or forfeit a quarter of a million cash, if I fail."
