Gen. Edward Timberlake. (UPI Unifax.) See Compromise Of Grain Acreage WASHINGTON (UPI) — ,The Kennedy administration is prepared for a further compromise on its controversial proposal for feed grain acreage controls. But the compromise terms are not likely to eliminate opposition to the plan. The feed grain control program is a key feature of the administration's omnibus farm bill. The Senate may take up the bill later this week, and action is expected soon in the House. Under the original administration proposal, feed grain producers would vote in a referendum. This would choose strict acreage controls with relatively high price supports, or no controls with no price supports. Under the compromise the administration is preparing to back, price supports would be maintained at 50 per cent of parity if farmers rejected controls. This low rate, however, is not expected to make the farm bill acceptable to lawmakers who oppose acreage controls for feed grains. The compromise plan was outlined in an administration memo describing changes which Democratic leaders will seek in the omnibus bill on the Senate floor. As it comes to the floor, the farm bill does not include the administration feed grain proposal. The Senate Agriculture Committee defeated that plan, 9-8. In place of mandatory Controls, the committee approved a one-year tension of the voluntary feed grain acreage cutback program which is in effect this year. Agriculture Committee Chair- mas Sen. Allen B. Ellender, D- La., has announced he plans to lead a floor fight to restore the administration program. Presum- ably, Ellender will push the modified plan disclosed Monday—a choice between controls with high supports and no controls with supports at 50 per cent of parity. Ellender and other Democratic leaders have predicted they have a good chance to write the feed grain control program back into the omnibus farm bill. Democrats and Republicans, meanwhile, drew a sharp line Monday on the issues which will face Congress in handling the farm bill. Ellender and Chairman Harold D. Cooley, D-N.C., of the House Agriculture Committee said that as a matter of principle, farmers should not expect substantial government help for surplus crops unless they'll approve controls. The two lawmakers spoke Monday in separate conferences with members of the Newspaper Farm Editors Association. Republican leaders told the same group of newsmen that they will oppose controls. Rep. Charles B. Hoeven, R- •lowa, said "The basic issue will be one between compulsion as opposed to a voluntary system." He said also that too much attention has been paid in the past to holding down production. He said Congress should ease up on this end of the farm problem and pay more attention to-increasing demand for farm products, The Republican and Democratic leaders divided on another question, whether the Billie Sol Estes case will affect passage of the omnibus farm bill. Estes is the Texan whose relations with agriculture officials and dealings in farm programs are under investigation. Wednesday Evening, IMTay 16, 1963 TESTIFIES—Maj. Gen. Thomas P.
