TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,1955 BLYTHEVTLLB (ARK.) COURIER KrEWI PAGB ILEVIM Farm Situation Belies GOP's Prosperity Platform-Kerr WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Kerr (D-Okla) says he doesn't believe the Republicans can run juccessfully in 1956 on a "prosperity" platform so long as the nation's farmers are operating in what he calls a recession. "Even Secretary of Agriculture Benson now recognizes there is a farm recession," Kerr laid in »n interview before leaving yesterday for Oklahoma. Benson h»s said he Is not satisfied with 'farm prices and that specific recommendations for supplementing the present farm program will be submitted 'to Con-, gress. But he added yesterday: "I think w« «re going to see some improvement in (arm prices as we get a better balance between production and consumption in this country/' He said in an NBC television interview that public opinion polls indicate "most farmers feel their income this year will be as'good if not a little better than last year." Cftuffhl In Squeeze Vice President Nixon said in a speech at the National Plowing Content in .Wabash, Ind., Saturday that "there is no farm depression in the United Stales." "Our agriculture economy is basically sound.'' he added, "but farmers are undeniably caught in a squeeze. The prices of the things they sell have gone down faster thn the prices 01' the things they buy." He pledged "unceasing" administration efforts to correct this. Commenting on Nixon's sute- nienus, Kerr asserted that "the Eisenhower-Benson program has reduced the farmers' percentage share of the national income to where U now is substantially below what it was in the depths of the Hoover depression."
