FARM Backs Asia Aid PASADENA, Calif. tfl—A United States program of aid to Asia might force Russia to change its policy of "forcing their way of life on others," Paul Hoffman, former EGA administrator, told the alumni assn, of California Institute of Technology. Such a program would enable new Asian democracies to attain economic and political stability, Hoffman said. This, he added, would force Soviet leaders to start thinking in terms of building a better life for their own people rather than forcing their way of life on others.

But Martin added that the Pres ident would "be a little shaky about doing anything else." Martin said that he is going to be busy on conferences on the farm bill from now until Wednesday, talking with Democrats as well as Republicans. He said in "a goodly number" of Democrats will support the attempt to return the measure to the conference committee. And, Martin added, the latch string fs out for any other Demo crats who want to go along. Martin said he didn't know whether the GOP could make any headway with 21 Republicans who favor high rigid price supports. Benson said Saturday after a meeting with Eisenhower that the bill was "unacceptable to me." The conferees voted to supplanl the administration's present flexible price support program with mandatory supports at 90 per cenl of parity, multiple price plans for wheat and rice, mandatory price supports for feed grains, and other features which the President has :ermed objectionable in the past. Sotl Bank But the bill also includes Eisen- lower's own proposal for a "soil bank." under which farmers would receive up to $1,200,000,000 a year r or taking surplus cropland out of production. Although Eisenhower has taken no formal stand on the compromise bill, Sen. Aiken (R-Vt) and others have said it faces a presidential veto unless Congress modi fies Its proposals to bring them more in line with the principles espoused by the administration. In.advance of the White House conference House GOP leader Martin of Massachusetts told newsmen the bill is "unsatisfactory as It stands." House GOP strategy Is to send the bill back to the conference group "with instructions." That requires a majority of the House to vote i'or a substitute which would be acceptable to the President. El- senhower snfd last week he would be satisfied with something less than "perfection." One-Hour Debate House procedure allows for only one hour of debate before the vote. Strengthening expectations of a Republican compromise offer, Sen. Aiken (R-Vt) told newsmen a substitute "might be approved" which \vould provide for price supports at BUSTED HEROES—While Josef Stalin is getting the bum's rush by the Moscow bigwigs, these busts of Italy's Fascist heroes make cheap junk in a secondhand market in Rome.

Re'p. Bui'dick (R-ND), however, predicted "the House will pass the iill and the President will sign H."

The dollar cost of providing increased water supplies under current conditions will be high. Will it he loo high? It might appear to he more economical to wait for a downward curve in the whole structure of prices and wages before undertaking the kind of construction programs required to meet our needs. But where are the signs that such a curve is in the making? And how long can we afford to wait? It took just one hot, dry summer to imperil the water supnlj' of many millions of people. Suppose next year—or the year after— brings similar conditions? Picture a shortage that goes beyond the critical stage. New York was only days away from such a crisis. Some smaller places went through it. Picture a water supply inadequate to handle a serious fire. Picture a water supply insufficient to maintain proper sanitation. Picture a water supply no longer able to keep industrial processes functioning. The price of keeping pace with the need of water may seem high, but what about the price of failure? One uncontrolled fire, one epidemic, a group of major industries lost to the community—any of these could involve an expense beside which the price of improved water supplies—even with costs what Iliey are—would hardly be noticeable. AVatcr is essential to life—the life of a city as well as the life of a human being. Without water, a man dies. Without water, a community faces the same fate. In the face of a crisis, no price can be too high. High prices paid to prevent a crisis are low prices!
