fourteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Triton* Soil Bank Extension Is Conceded in House WASHINGTON (UP)— opponents of the soil bank acreage reserve program conceded that the House would reverse itself today and approve a tightened-up one-year extension of the program. Only two months ago the House voted to kill the program. The new plan would limit subsidy payments to $3,000 per farmer, restrict total payments to 500 million dollars and bar the Agriculture Department from ladling out any of the subsidies during the closing weeks of the 1958 congressional election. It was embodied in a compromise $3,666,543,747 agriculture appropriations bill drafted by a Senate-House conference committee. The measure, on which Senate action also is necessary, contained *298,900,000 less than the administration requested for operation of farm programs in the year ahead. . Termed Good Fight The House, in passing its version of the bill on May 9, voted 192-137 to terminate the acreage after payments- farmers participating this year. The Senate voted to restore it. Under the acreage reserve growers of five crops— wheat, corn, tobacco, rice and upland cotton- receive subsidies when they agree not to plant some or all of their allotted acreage. Some farmers this year have received checks for is much as $200,000 under the program. Hep.

Agriculture Ezra T. Benson must make all of the payments, by Sept. 15, 1958. "He won't be able to pour money into pivotal election districts right before the election as he did last year for the purpose of influencing the election results," Harrison said. Moreover, Harrison said, the House fight against the soil bank succeeded in "establishing it as Benson's baby." He noted that Benson cancelled a planned trip to South America to stay in Washington and carry on a fight in the Senate for. its restoration. Restrict Payment Total In addition to money restrictions, the Senate-House 'conference committee directed Benson to insist that farmers who receive acreage reserve subsidies "cooperate", in cutting their over-all plantings. Critics have complained that some farmers while holding "acreage reserve" land out of production, actually increased their total crop plantings by putting into cultivation land that otherwise would have remained idle. The compromise bill would restrict to 325 million dollars 1958 crop payments under the soil Lewis Flays Welfare Fund Regulations UMW Chieftain Brands Proposed Step by Congress as Creating A Police State WASHINGTON (UP) '— United Minpworkers President John L. Lewis warned Congress today that federal regulation of workers' welfare funds may be a step toward creating "a police state in truth and in fact."

"There is a necessity for increased" prosecution of those who i , ... , . . . ! upright officials are elected to take care of .welfare, funds.
