TUKSDAY, NOVEMBER 1.5, 19."5 BLYTHEVIU.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Farmers, GOP Politicians Are Singing 'Benson Blues' Ily OVID A. MARTIN Associated Press Farm Reporter WASHINGTON' (AP) —- "I've got a bad case of the Benson blues." Tliese were lite words farmer Robert Lee of Larimore, N. B., used to put across at a recent Senate Agriculture Committee hearing how he felt about Secretary of Agriculture Benson and (he Eisenhower administration farm program. Are Margaret and Jersey Governor Getting Serious? A lot of farmers — and Republi can politicians as well—have the same kind of blues if what they told the senators at more than a dozen heannqs t major farming areas _ and newsmen in interviews _ is an accurate Range. The most outspoken criticism of Benson was voiced at hearings in Minnesota, the Dakotas, Oregon and Texas. It was generally sharpest and most frequent in areas where the National Farmers' Union is strongest. This farm organization has lonfi been critical of Republican farm policies. It has been closely associated with Democratic policies and leaders. Charles P. Brannan. secretary of agriculture under President Truman, is a top official. Seldom Mentioned But In states like Iowa, C or-j nia, Indiana and Ohio, where the rival Farm Bureau Federation is strong, Benson seldom was mentioned by farmer witnesses. Questioned on the side, most farmers would say the GOP farm chief was not very popular "out my way," Many farmers would say they admired Benson fir his "sincerity, honesty and courage in standing among ousmess ana pioicssiomnj Mm u,miv pm" n....*.. — 'men and white collar workers inif arm crs would be required to take urban areas.

Their union said they got what they wanted. Eighty-four New York area salesmen with an average yearly income of $17,000 — and some reaching $40,000 — struck the CadUlac Division of General Motors Corp. Oct. 27. A spokesman for the AFL International Brotherhood of Teamsters said the contract provides for no discharge except for cause, no transmers, layoffs on a seniority basis, a 40-hour week and a guaranteed commission of S100 per sale. i er's 'produced more hogs to feed the grain to rather than sell it The result wa.s an overproduction of hogs and the big; decline in prices when the hogs reached m fcet size this year. Earlier in the present administration, Benson policies had strong backing from the American Farm Bureau Federation.
