Decker & Sons By HARRY LANDO Washington — The special session of congress may last an hour or it may run through until Labor day. But there appears to be little prospect that any important farm legislation will be considered. Both parties will be playing Grains Inch Up Slightly Chicago, (^F)—Grains inched up a bit Thursday but the gains were not large enough to cause any market excitement. Wheat got some aid from milling interests, presumably lifting hedges against sales of flour to South America and European countries. Corn showed the widest gains at times, largely because of short covering in the July contract. Advances ranged to around 2 cents at one time. Wheat closed i-'J higher, July $2.263-5, corn was i lower to 2 cents higher, July $2.08J-J, oats were j lower to 2 cents higher, July $2.08^-4, oats were 3 lower to li higher,"July 77-77$, rye was i lower to i higher, December $1.88, and soybeans were unchanged to 3 cents higher, July $3.78. politics to the hilt and about the only bill of interest to farmers which has the required partisanship is perhaps the Rivers bill. This is the measure which would repeal the 10 cents per pound tax on oleomargarine when colored yellow. New Lease on Old Bills The special session, of course, grants a new lease on life to all measures supposedly killed by the pre-convention adjournment. The margarine bill is one of these. Passed by an oxerwhelming majority in the house, it failed to reach a vote in the senate. Sen. J. William Fulbright CD- Ark.) was one of the tax repeal leaders in the senate. His office has advised this reporter that Fulbright will "bend every effort to secure passage of the Rivers bill." Chances for the bill are confused. Presumably an earlier survey of the senate, indicating that the bill would pass if brought to a vote, still holds good. The catch is whether it will ever come to a vote.

The republicans may vote to adjourn quickly. Or they may introduce civil rights legislation along the lines requested by Truman, which would precipitate filibusters. Another pitfall in the way of the bill are other filibusters threatened by dairy state senators against it. Key to the fate of the bill may be the length of the session, but it would probably have to stretch until September if the oleo tax repealer is to be passed. While farm legislation will not figure very much in the possible accomplishments of the special sessions, farmers are sure to receive more than their fair share funds appropriated under previous bills. The state has 2 years in which to commit the money to specific rural road projects. Iowa .Only 100 Per Cent Iowa, leading corn state, also leads in acreage planted with hybrid seed. Iowa's entire corn acreage is planted with hybrid. The balance of the nation catching up with Iowa in percentage of hybrid use, but slowly. This year 75 per cent of the nation's corn acreage was hybrid, a gain of 3 per cent over 1947. The corn belt states, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, use hybrid almost exclusively, with Iowa the only 100 per cent state. The commodity credit corporation will buy huge quantities of potato flour for export, 448,000,000 pounds for relief feeding in bi-zone Germany alone. This will represent another line of attack on the problem of potato surpluses in the U. S. The Production and Marketing administration expects that a total of 902,000 short tons of nitrogenous fertilizer will be available to U. S. farmers this year. This would be about 10 per cent more than the record quantity used in this country last year, despite continuing international shortages. ECA to Take Eggs The Economic Co-Operation administration has agreed to take from the Commodity Credit corporation for shipment abroad under the European recovery plan, all frozen eggs still remaining in CCC hands. The eggs in question, 3,7,500,000 pounds frozen whole, are the remainder of stocks purchased for price support purposes in 1947. The agriculture department will buy 150,000,000 pounds of canned meat from processing plants in northern Mexico. Aim? To kill 2 birds with one stone. The meat will be exported to Marshall plan nations with no drain on our own short supplies, and it will cut cattle numbers in northern Mexico, thus reducing HERE a»d THERE MOTOR BOATS TO RACE AUG. 8- Dumont—Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Person of Mason City and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dickman and daughter of Allison visited recently in the George Ahrens home.

To Attack Farm Record Democrats will use the special session to attack the farm record of the 80th congress and republicans will use the same sounding board to extoll the things they have done. The democrats are very much indebted to Rep. John Taber (RN. Y.) for much of their ammunition. Taber appears to have little real understanding of the problems of midwestern farmers and in his capacity as chairman of the house appropriations committee he has wielded the economy axe in some of the wrong places. Rep. Clifford R. Hope (R., Kans.) house republican agricultural leader, found it necessary to apologize for the latest agriculture appropriation bill at the time it was up for a vote in the house. During the course of debate, he publicly expressed the hope that the senate would be more liberal on many items. His wish was only partially realized. Cut Budget As congress prepared to adjourn until . . . they thought . . . next session, Sen. Joseph C. Mahoney (D., Wyo.) was already hitting this republican sore spot. He pointed to an over-all cut of 23 per cent in the "rock-bottom" budget which the department had submitted to congress for approval. The agricultural conservation program was cut 24 per cent; Soil Conservation Service, 13 per cent; Farmers' Home Administration, 43 per cent; Rural Electrification administration, 10 per cent; school-lunch program, 13 per cent; forest service, 14 per cent. The few democrats already returned to Washington are unanimous in stating that congress and the farmers will hear all about these cuts and their effect on agl riculture. It appears at this date that Hope will lead the counter-attack. He will point to the passage of price- support, crop insurance, and plant and animal disease programs which the 80th congress wrote into law. He will remind farmers of the permanent charter accorded Commodity Credit Corporation and the "unprecedented the possibility of spread of loot and mouth disease. Rat Campaign Is Being Carried to Local Residences Starting Monday, residents of Mason City may call the city hall, 3900, if their residences have rat trouble or if adjacent buildings are harboring rats, according to R.
