i') An;'-,/:'I S-MOAl.CONVENTION CCnVJCt, 28, Farm Bureaus Platform to Place It Confesses as Conservative on Most Problems to Slayina BOSTON (AP) -Thf Amcrirnn. " "^ BOSTON (AP)-The American. Farm Bureau Federation prepared to wind up its Annual meeting today with Rdoption of a platform placing it on what is rrpard-j ed to he the conservative side of! most major issues facing the na ' tion. The big farm group's four-day { convention, which drew upwards of 5.000 visitors, fpattlred speak- trs who put themselves in such a political and economic category. It roundly applauded U.S. Sen. Barry M, Goldwater, conservative Arizona Republicans, when he characterized the farm bureau as the most active defender of the free enterprise system in (lie country. Curb tabor The platform, as drafted by a, resolutions committee made up o{ members from each of the 48 Mates, called for strong legisla* tion to curb powers of organized, labor, for sharp reductions in federal spending, and for laws to 1 re-establish powers of the states i which, it said, have been usurped, by the federal government. | The resolutions voiced opposi- 1 tion to federal aid to education and to expansion of the federal highway system. It insisted upon • balanced federal budget. In the area of farming, the plat-! form — tentatively approved by the voting delegates late Wednes-l day — called for a virtual with-1 drawal of the government from! control of agriculture as soon as] present surpluses can be disposed! of. The government itself was blamed for the oversupplies. The only members of Congress invited to address the convention were Goldwater and Sen. Spessard L. Holland of Florida, a conservative Democrat. Tossed Barbs Both Goldwater and Holland tossed barbs at the so-called liberals of both parties in Congress and made bitter attacks on labor leaders. Speeches of both received warm applause. A Goldwater suggestion that conservatives of both major parties should line up in one party to preserve what he called rights of the states and of individuals was well received. So were charges by Holland that the U.S. Supreme Court had overstepped itself to enter the policy-making and legislative fields of government. Perhaps significant was the fact that at no time during the first three days of the convention was i speaker or delegate heard to criticize Secretary of Agriculture Benson and his policies. Benson has been a target of congressmen who classify themselves as liberals.
