"In the long run," he said, "the ever normal g r a n a r y program cat be sustained only by a flexible price support system. This is es pccially true of corn." Acreage Controls Wallace said no one can afforc to be cocksure in talking about farm price programs. He said it might be possible to use acreage controls to cut cotton production enough to sustain a loan at DO per cent of parity. But of corn, he said: "With good weather and no new war, a 90 per cent corn loan will soon build up utterly fantastic supplies and 'endanger the whole system of commodity ioans and the ever normal granary." Wallace said he doubts acreage controls' on corn will be successful. Diversion of wheat and cotton acres to corn is one danger, he *aid, adding: .... .:...: Big Loop Hole "Of course the biggest loop hole is the greatly increased use Rowan Youth Killed When Hit by Auto G A R N E R -- David Neilsen 16 son of Mr. and .Mrs. Arthur Neil- sea of Rowan, was instantly killed on Highway 18 at the north edge of Garner when struck by a cai driven by John Finch of Crystal Lake at 1:45 a . m .

He predicted that from 1955 to 19G5 high nitrogen applications will "sweep the corn belt like hybrid corn did from 1934 to 1944" and boost yields several hundred million bushels a year." He said wheat acreage cuts, however, probably will be effective as a production control. Wallace said he hopes President Eisenhower " i s g i v e n carte blanche to use · at least a billion dollars of our surpluses to relieve suffering wherever and whenever he deems it wise to do so." Guaranteed Wage Victor Rcuther, another speaker on the program, said the CIO'will fight for a guaranteed annual wage for steel workers this year and for auto workers next year. The assistant to and brother of CIO President Walter Ileuthcr said a staff of .specialists has been working for two years mapping the program for an a n n u a l wage. Rcuther set the minimum annual wage necessary for the "standard of decency" at §4,500 but he did not say if that would be the figure sought when contract negotiations open.
