THURSDAY, MAY 13, 1948 Signing of Farm Bill Is Predicted Truman la Accept ^Long-Range Agri Measure, Aiken Soyj (United Press stiff Co-respondent) ^WASHINGTON, May 13.

But II would make sweeping changes both in the way of figuring the pirlty formula and In applying R to tie- tcrmme support prices. ( "My personal opinion." said Aiken is thai President Truman will 'be quit* glad to accept our bill a* is" H« gav« this as the reason why the Agriculture Committee ii not planning to hold up its decision on the measure until it gel.s the farm message yhich the President has promised for this week. Aiken said the committee ha, ached "virtual agreement" on the ^ As ranking Republican on Ihe flmittee. he hended a subcommittee which hAs been working on »'long-range farm program since Summer. He said the bill would provide lor calculating parity by using price figures from either the present base period, 1909-14, or Uie 10 years preceding the crop year. Support price.s then would range from 60 to 90 per cent of parity lor th« basic crops and wool depending upon supply. They woulrt be from zero to go per cent for the non-basic agricultural commodities. Cotton 1 S now supported at 02'4 per rent of parity, and other farm products at 90 per cent. Would Follow Supply Under the proposed new farm program, support prices would rise *s supply falls, and vice versa rhe new nystem «•*.. designed to stabilize both prices and production. Aiken i»id It would work out to i make the support price 75 per cent of parity when the supply of a particular crop is "norrnal." However, the Secretary of Agriculture would not have to depend solely upon the flexible price sup- R°4! to keep production in bounds. Iff would have the same author's? as now to limit acreage of pea- nuls and tobacco. He could re- •trlct acreage of the four other basic crop, when supply reaches 115 per cent of normal and farmers *pproved by referendum. Aiken said the Secretary also would have "wide latitude" to re- Strict production of non-ba»Ic crops. If national welfare demanded a rapid expansion In production of any crop, the secretary could set 1 support price at higher than 90 Anything for a Picture JLYTHEVILLB '(ARK.)

Mrs. Flint went to her home with the women and picked up her five crisp .tl.OCO bills. The women lingered the bills and put them in the per cent of parity. Aiken said he expcrfs both the Senate and House to approve the committee's bill without much change.
