LIC Thursday Evening, December 19, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pliaros-Tribuno Seven Nome Vets Administrator WASHINGTON (UP)— The long- delayed appointment of a new veterans administrator appeared to have cleared the way today for an administration economy drive in the big veterans program. G. Sumner Whitticr, former lieutenant governor of Massachusetts and unsuccessful Republican candidate for governor last year, was named to'the top Veterans Administration post late Tuesday by President .Eisenhower. Whittier parried questions about a reported White House decision to put the brakes on spending for veterans' benefits not linked with their military service. Offers Solution To Aid Low-Income Farming Sectors . WASHINGTON (UP) — Purdue University farm economist Vernon W. Ruttan said today "expansion of local non-farm employment'' is needed .to solve the problems of farms in low-income areas. Ruttan read a prepared statement to a sub-committee of the Joint House and Senate Economic Committee. "Expansion of local non-farm employment is essential to the solution of agriculture's low-income problem throughout most of the generalized low-income areas," Ruttan said. "Intensive technical and managerial assistance is required," Ruttan said, "to upgrade low-income farmers to successful commercial farmers, even in those areas where farm population and resources are being brought into better balance." Ruttan. said the nation's farm programs must be judged "on the basis of its contribution to the solution of the problem of the lower- income farmers." Ruttan cited three effects of the Social Security program on agriculture. "Retirement benefits are expected to be the greatest and participation highest in commercial .farming areas," Ruttan said. "Commercial farmers are expected to bear more than a proportionate share of the Old Age and Survivors Insurance costs. But this will tend to be offset in part by a reduction in old-age assistance program costs. "Secondary effects of extension of OSAiT to farm people are expected to manifest themselves through an increase in the number of farm operators who retire." Another Purdue farm economist, J. Carroll Bottum, told the subcommittee Tuesday that an effective "voluntary soil bank program" could be set up at a cost of "between one and one-quarter and two billion dollars." State License Plates For 1959 Will Bear Slogan "Lincoln Year" INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—Indiana auto license plates will bear the slogan "Lincoln Year" in 1959. That decision was reached by the Lincoln Sesquicentennial Commission which is planning celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War president's birth. State auditor Roy Combs, a commission member, said the slogan was agreed upon from a list of more than 16, including "Abe Grew Up Here," "Lincoln, The Hoosier Youth," "Rugged Abe," and "Rugged Lincoln." The "formative years" of Lincoln's boyhood were spent in Indr ana, Combs pointed out. FIND BILLFOLD .
