MONDAY, JULY 18, 1958 BLYTHEVTLLK 4ARK.) COURIER NEWS FAOft Success Is Seen Hitting Wheat Curb Deadline Wednesday Last Day For Congress to Set Acreage Limits WASHINGTON Wl — A congi / - •ional race against a Wednesday deadline for announcing the proposed national wheat planting 1 limit for next year today seemed ^ likely to succeed, but a last minute hitoh could develop. The Senate Saturday approved a 61 million acre quota and Chairman Aiken (R-Vt) of the Senate Agriculture Committee said he hoped the House would accept it. But Chairman Hope (R-Kas) of the House Agriculture Committee said in an interview: "I think there will have to be a conference." The House had voted a more liberal planting limit of 66 million acres. Normally when the Senate and House pass legislation with major differences' a Senate-House conference committee is appointed to work out a compromise. This usually takes several days. House acceptance of the Senate bill, on the other hand, would send it on the White House. Existing law requires that Secretary of Agriculture Benson announce a quota at 55 million ares no later than Wednesday. House Charged More That is six million below the Sen„ ate bill and 11 million acres under the House recoinmendation. Planting this year was about 78 million acres. Two-thirds of the wheat growers, voting in a national referendum, must approve the allotment Benson announces if quotasare to be efective. If quotas fail to muster this majority the government price support for wheat wil drop from §2.21 a bushel to SI.23. The move to boost the national acreage is designed to make quotas more palatable to growers. The quotas are required under the law because of a bumper \> '.eai crop this year plus a large cary- over of the grain from previous crops. Both Aiken and Sen. Anderson (D-NM) said there could be a complete wheat crop failure next year and the country stil would have enough wheat to meet all domestic needs. Republican senators from wheat growing states, including Carlson of Kansas, Case and Mundt of South Dakota Young and Langer of North Dakota and Thye of Minnesota—expressed hope that the final wheat acreage compromise would be higher than the Senate figure.

Iff) — With his back to the wall because of the prolonged drought, a desperate rancher did a desperate thing— and it worked. What would you do if this happened to you? You're a rancher in Oklahoma's powder-dry Kiowa County. A few months ago you bought a calf for S33, turned it out to pasture, and watched it gain 150 pounds. Then you brought it to the market, and when the acutioneer's gave' fell, it had sold for only $21.50. Despite the feed and care, you had lost 511.50. It happened to Clay Weaver, 42, and just about turned his tough, tanned flesh white. "Boy, I knew I had to do something, and quick," he explained. "I didn't have a big herd of cattle or a big bank account. I was one of the smalt boys who made his living in a small way." What Weaver didn't mention was that, aside from other responsibilities, he had an ailing wife and three small children to support. His finances were at a low ebb because his wife, sick with a mysterious and troublesome disease, required the attention o£ specialists. "My sister and I hit upon the idea of selling our cattle directly to the consumer- We knew that was the only way I'd ever get my money back on the cattle I had on hand." So Weaver and his sister pooled their resources, rented a small shop in Snyder and began selling both wholesale and retail. The first day's take was $271. Now ex-rancher Weaver is buying cattle from ranchers in his area, trying to give them a decent return on their investment, and at the same time sell the beef at a price the folks in the neighborhood can afford to pay.
