TUESDAY, APRIL 13,1948 Extended Price Supports Okayed Anderson Reluctant But Agrees to Help •Draft Legislation WASHINGTON. April 13. <UP>— Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson reluctantly agreed ves- Icrday to help draft "emergcf-y legislation" to extend for another ,'ear present price supports lor farm commodities. The request was made by Sen Elmer Thomas, D., Okla., aa the Senate Agriculture Committee opened hearings on long-range farm legislation. Thomas said "emergency legislation" would be necessary if Congress failed lo enact a permanent program at this session. Anderson agreed, but said he had purposely avoided presenting such emergency legislation in the hope that Congress would pass 'a long- range program with flexible price supports. The present law sets minimum price supports for most farm corn- Flexible Sup|iorts Considered The committee is considering a subcommittee's recommendation for ^exible price support program flm would set supports between 50 "Slid 90 per cent of parity for basic farm commities. Anderson urged that he be given wide discretionary authority to peg price supports for all farm products when necessary "in the public interest." He said mandatory, minimum price supports should be limited to non-perishable crops and to those for which the government has some way to control production. Anderson also proposed adoption of a new parity fomula based on the average price of the crop during the preceding 10 years.

By Patricia Clary LOS ANOELES. April 13. (UP) — Rebellious Democratic leaders almost turned the $25 a plate Jackson Day Dinner into an Eisenhower rally last night. General Ike. the former chief of staff, was cheered long and roundly. President Truman wasn't mentioned until Democratic National Chairman J. Howard McGrath spoke. "Prrsidenl Truman is trying to do what he thinks Franklin D. Roosevelt is calling down from heaven. 1 McGrath said, "but he lacks the deftness of the master hand. "His heart is just as sincere and liis purposes are (ought lor just .is courageously. Can we ask for more than this iti leadership?" "Yes, yes!" the crowd howled. McGraih paused, obviously upset. "You have the right to select any candidate you want if you think ivou arc serving your country bcsl," he added. "Truman will be president only so long as we want him j to be. r m doing my best to guide | a unified party to victory." 1 John B.
