The Agriculture De: partment estimates the carryover I in wheat next July 1 will be 1,300,; 000,000 bushels, an all-time record. j Young said it is not unusual for (him to disagree with Bensop. But jat the present time, Young said, he is in disagreement not only with nenson but with the North Dakota Farmers Union and the Farm Bureau as well. Abandon Support "As I understand the proposal of the recent North Dakota Farm Bureau convention," Young said, "they would abandon price supports and production control for wheat. "Believing as I do that such action would result in drastically reduced prices, I just cannot support this proposal." Young said the Farmers Union program would raise price sup ports for all commodities to 100 per cent of parity with marketing quotas on all the products a farmer markets and with stiff penalties for violations. He said he believes this is too drastic.
