KEFAUVER (Continued from Page 1) leaders' meeting, called Truman ' 'one of the worst presidents in American history." He accused the former President of "sniping from the sidelines at one of the best." "Mr. Truman is a disgruntled, frustrated man who Is jealolis of President Eisenhower and will do everything to tear down his great record and his great popularity," Hall said. Butler attacked what he called "the myth of Eisenhower invincibility" and the "Republican press," which he said has spread reports of a third party movement in the South to "create dissension" in the party. If Eisenhower vetoes the farm bill, Butler added, "without nny question of a doubt it will seal his political doom." Much of New Mexico's population lives above the altitude of 5,000 feet. FARM (Continued from Pane 1) able farm commodities for the year beginning July 1. 4. Finally, Elsenhower urged the lawmakers to enact his soil bank plan "as promptly as possible ... before next fall's seeding for next year's crops." 4 Frovlsloni Unacceptable The President said the four main provisions made the bill unacceptable to him: (1) the return{ to rigid 90 per cent of parity supports for basic commodities; (2) dual parity for wheat, corn, cotton and peanuts; (3) mandatory price supports for feed rains; and (4) multiple-price plans for wheat and rice. The veto unquestionably will have far-reaching significance in this year's political campaign. For one thing, it gives Democrats, who have been reluctant to attack Elsenhower personally, an issue on which they can hammer at the President. Although the bill was pushed by the Democratic majority in Congress it won support from many farm state Republicans. Some said a veto In the light of falling agricultural prices would hurt Eisenhower and other GOP candidates in the November election. Only this morning the Republican governors of Kansas, Iowa and South Dakota urged the President to sign the measure even though it contained features which Secretary of Agriculture Bensoi had called "unacceptable." Eisenhower backed Benson In turning down the bill although he said he took the veto action "with intense disappointment and regret." Eisenhower said that .far from reducing surpluses, the bill would encourage more surpluses and also increase government control over farming.
