JtOTOAT, aEPTJMBER M, MM (ARK.)' OOVRWSl KIWB PAGE THMSt Midwest Demos Scatter After Blasting Ike's Farm Policies INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Midwest Dem-* ocratic leaders from nine states scattered today after jabbing hard during a two-day strategy session at the Eisenhower administration's handling of farm problems. "A brazen and ruthless betrayal of America's farmers"—that's the way the Democrats described administration agricultural policies in a resolution containing other strong phrases, like "calculated deceit," "callous indifference," "flagrant neglect." Paul Butler of Indiana, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said the farm issue promises to be No. I in the 1956 presidential campaign, Butler met, with high-level Democrats from Michigan, Wisconsin, Kansas, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota. Nebraska, Minnesota and Montana. The Illinois organization sent no representatives. Plans Disclosed At the conference, he disclosed national committee plans to "out- huckster" the Republicans in employment of advertising techniques next year. He said he expected former President Truman to remain on the firing: line during the campaign. Truman's popularity, he said, has "increased tremendously" since "Eisenhower has been in the While House." He said that five million dollars] will be allocated for radio and' TV time in the coming campaign, and that by Oct. 1 a selection will be made from among some 20 advertising concerns to take over the party account. He detailed other plans in the making, including formation of a hnlf-dozen special advisory committees—each devoted to one field, .such as labor and agriculture—to be staffed by full-time, paid directors. All will be functioning by Jan. 1, he said. Realistic Propram ! The conferees called in their • resolution for an "effective and; realistic" farm program, and pre-j dieted a "green uprising" at the! ballot box that will bring Demo-) criits into office to put it into action. Among other things, the program] should cover these main points, j the resolution said: \ Restoration of 90 pei* cent of; parity price supports for basic j commodities but restricting participation of corporation-type farm enterprises, as distinguished from family units. Extension of 90 per cent supports to livestock, poultry, milk and other perishables, but with provision for production payments as an alternative. Mandatory supports for grain sorghums, barley and oats based on their feed value relative to corn. A plan to take marginal acres out of production, and promote soil conservation. Longer-term, lower-cost credit for farmers, giving preference to those to low-income groups.
