16 THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE "CERTIFICATE PLAN" IS TOLD Wallace Makes Proposal as Solution to U. S. Cotton Problems WASHINGTON, (/^--Secretary Wallace advanced a new "certificate plan" Wednesday as a solution for present cotton problems. Wallace advanced the proposal in a conference with senators and representatives f r o m southern states, some of whom said afterwards the now proposal seemed to be "a disguised processing tax" which congress might disapprove. They said Wallace had proposed that cotton fanners receive certificates worth 3 cents a pound for every pound purchased under the present program, in addition to existing payments. Backs No Specific Proposal Members of congress said that the secretary emphasized he was not recommending or backing any specific proposal. The American farm bureau federation urged the house agriculture committee to make no f u n d - amental change in the administration's farm program. Edward A. O'Neal, Florence, Ala., president, asserted during hearings on proposed substitutes for the soil conservation act thai the federation sought only minor improvements in the law dictatec by "limited experience" with the year old statute. Suggests Alterations Alterations O'Neal suggested: 1. More "equitable and workable" benefit payments. 2. Place wheat in the same marketing quota classification with corn. 3. Raise the exemptions fo wheat growers from 100 bushels to 200 bushels. 4. Make government loan cot ton available in amounts neces sary "to regain and maintain ou normal share" o£ the world mar kets. 5. A speeding up of the an nouncement of rice acreage allot merits.
