Douglas 1 suggestions were made in a speech prepared for delivery tonight to the National Editorial Assn. The text was released for publication ahead of time due to a clerical error. The Illinois Democrat renewed his attack on Republican farm policies and his contention that the GOP "broke" 1952 promises to the nation's fanners. Douglas cited figures which he said show that, average income per farm fell from S2.605 to S2.05Q between 1952 and the second quarter of this year. In addition to the production payments plan, which he termed a "subsidy," Douglas proposed that ways be found to: Build Up Consumption 1. Build up consumption of food at home and abroad. 2. Send additional quantities of wheat, cotton, cheese and powdered milk to countries "where there is starvation and semi-starvation, in exchange for additional quantities of tin, copper, manganese, uranium, cobalt" and the like. 3. Expand farm exports by liberalizing foreign trade policy, permitting "other nations" to sell more of their manufactured products to us." Douglas said the Eisenhower administration gives "verbal support to this principle, but in every practical situation it acts in a contrary fashion." He cited increases in tariffs on Swiss watches and British bicycles. The senator said he feels efforts should be concentrated toward giving a life to small and low income farmers. Adenauer Better, Doctors Report BONN, Gcimany W — Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, ill with bronchial pneumonia, Is continuing to improve, his doctors announced to- dny. , This is the seventh day of his illness.
