TUESDAY, APRIL IT, 1»M BLITHEV1LLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Who's Responsible for Farm Income Decline?—the Farmers Must Decide Br JAMES MAKLOW AtMcl*t«4 Tntt Newt WASHINGTON (AP) — Who struck John? In this case the farmers are John. They'll have to decide in thi* presidential election year whether to blame Democrats or Republicans for the fall in their income, particularly if it keeps going down. Within the past M hours—with president but does it now "aftei Democrat* and Republican* both aching for the farm vote—farmers have become a roaring campaign issue in a series of events which may leave them scratching their heads: 1. President Eisenhower veto-d the farm bill passed by the Democratic-run Congress with the help of farm state Republicans. The Democrat* said this bill was just what the farmers needed to bail the Democrats them out. 2. Immediately began trying to make political capital of the veto. They said Eisenhower himself had dealt the farmers a "direct blow" and that he would have to take "full blame" for the farmers' troubles. 3. Eisenhower struck back in a nationwide broadcast last night blaming Congress for giving him a bill which he said he had to veto as a matter of conscience because it would do more harm than good Klaked Popularity • This was one of the few times In Eisenhower's three White House years when; by direct action oi his own, he risked losing a vast chunk of personal popularity, as he will If the farmers now blame him for their plight. He made it clear he new he was taking a politic!'.! chance by acknowledging he had been told "what a risky thing in an election year to veto this bill." Besides the farm state Republicans who voted for the bill, three farm state Republican governors flew here to urge him to sign it and two farm organizations vored the measure: the National Gargne and the National Farmers Union. A third group, the Ameri. can Farm Bureau, opposed it. So did Secretary of Agriculture Ben. son. Refused to Go on Defensive Eisenhower, who has had some experience in generalship, refused to let the Democrats put him on the defensive, or at least entirly on the defensive. The bill passed by this Democratic-run Congress would have restored high, rigid supports. Although vetoing the Democrats' high support bill, Eisenhower at the same time announced he was gong to increase price supports— although not up to the Democrats' figure—to give farmers an additional 600 million dollars in benefits this year. Democrats hooted at this reasoning. Democratic National Chairman Paul M. Butler said Eisenhower had the authority to raise prices nnv- time since becoming farmers have lost three billion dot lars." Soil Buk Alked But Eisenhower wrapped a chal lenge around the Democrats necks, knowing the farmers would be watching to see what happened He urged Congress to pass this year a soil bank program tha would pay farmers- for cutting down on production by withdraw ing acreage from surplus crops He said it would, \f passed with a provision for part payments when farmers sign contracts, give farmers up to 500 million dollar: additional this year. Now it's up to the farmers to figure out who hit them, if anybody, or. whether they knockec themselves out by overproducing.

It's a 1956 Buick SpEciAL-which means, of course, it's a big car. But look again at the price news it carries. It tells you this big Buick SPECIAL can be yours for only a few dollars more than the price of the well-known smaller cars —for even less than some mqdels of those very same cars. (And the price we'll show you proves how true that is.) The gospel truth is —this brawny new beauty is the biggest bundle of high style and hot performance ever offered in Buick'i lowest-priced Series. i / / \r ,*<» • tr t NIWIOW MJM-4-UoiMi In y.»r n.w Buiik wild FSISIDAIKf CONDITIONING • Even that, though, doesn't completely explain why Buick outsells every car in America except the two well-known smaller ones. To understand the big reason, you've got to know something about how much more pure automobile you get for your money in a 1956 Buick— The extra satisfaction of commanding Buick's walloping new 322-cubic-inch V8 engine— The extra joy and comfort of Buick's new buoyant ride, Buick's matchless new handling ease, Buick's extra solidity of structure— The extra thrill that comes from the world's most modern transmission. For, at your option, you can also have the new double-action take-off —and the extra gas-saving mileage—of Buick's advanced new Variable Pitch Dynaflow.f Those are some of the things we'd like you to know, firsthand, about the 1956 Buick. And we'll let the car itself — and that low price tag —do the talking. Will you come in—real soon—this week maybe? ]Ncw Advanced Variable Pitch Dijnnfow is ihs only Dynaflow Buick builds today. It is standard on Roadmasttr, Super and Century—optional at modest extra cost on the Special. / HI )AC«II OlEASON \X/ •WHEN BITTIt AUTOMOBILES AM BUILT BUICK Will BUI1D IMIM- LANGSTON-Me WATERS BUICK CO.
