Wednesday Evening, May 16, 1962 Welsh Bids For Flood Control Aid WASHINGTON (UPD-Indiana Gov. Matthew Welsh appeared b& fore a Senate Appropriations subcommittee today in support of increased funds for Hoosier flood control projects. The group made a similar plea Tuesday to a House subcommittee studying appropriations for the same projects. In many cases, the Hoosiers asked for'funds in excess of those recommended by the administration of President Kennedy. The requests included $1 million for the Huntington Reservoir on the Wabash River. George D. Gettinger, executive vice president of the Wabash Valley Association, presented many of the requests. The funds requested which were not included in the budget were $35,000 for the advance engineering and design for the England Pond Levee in Illinois and $30,000 for local pro. lection at Mount Carmel, 111. The association,' which represents both Indiana and Illinois interests along the Wabash, also asked for increases over the budget recommendations for six projects. They included $48,000 instead of $29,000 for advance engineering on the Tri-Pond Levee; $500,000 instead of $250,000 for Levee No. 5 on the Wabash; $2,500,000 instead bf $1,690,000 for construction of the Mississinewa Reservoir; $2 million instead of $1.8 million for construction of the Salamonie Reservoir; $275,000 instead of $100,000 for a survey of the Wabash Rivei and tributaries; and $175,000 in stead of $50,000 for a survey of the While River basin. On all otherprojects, the associ ation endorsed the amounts re quested by the administration Welsh asked for less than the association for the Wabash River and White River surveys. He asked for $200,000 for the Wabash and $110,000 for the White, in line with Army Engineer capability for fecal 1963.. American Farm System Best in The World WASHINGTON ('UPI) - Agri culture Secretary Orville L. Free man said Tuesday night that "no feudal estate, ho stale '• ownec farm, no collective" has ever achieved the abundant productiv. ity of the American farm family. Former Vice President and Secretary Henry A. Wallace, in an earlier speech to the World Food Forum, agreed that agriculture was no example to follow. He sait Russia's so - called virgin lane farm program in Siberia migh eventually turn into a dust bowl. Freeman said the new nations can tell'by history which farm system is better. It shows, Freeman said, that governments which tried to destroy individual incentive in farming paid "an appalling •price in hunger, and lagging productivity." He told the forum that if a system of individually opera tec farms is adopted it will .lead to stepped up productivity, economic growth, and strengthening of free institutions. Wallace said Russian agriculture was about on a par with 19(K America. He said the Kremlin has been unable to transfer its research into efficient farm management.
