Flanders, WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 (UP) — 'resident Truman today asked Conto revise the farm-produce support program so ns to ake the profit out of overproduction. He estimated the government vould lose $116, 559,000 in sunport- ng prices under the present system n the next fiscal year. The statement was Included In R ilideel providing for 41.OS8.39l.000 if expenditures by Ihe Agriculture Department and related agencies during the 12 months beginning next 'uly i. The Commodity Credit Associa- ion will spend about $3:15,573,000 a support farm prices. But Mr. Truman said this would be scaled down to a net of $116,550,000 by he resale of surplus commodities. He said the loss could be trimmed another 450,000,000 If Congress overhauls the formula for figuring support prices. Wants Formula Hevlsed He said farmers will continue to require protection of the price sup- lort program. But he said the formula lor figuring the support level should be revised to reflect changes in price relationships and improved production methods. One of the chief objections of; critics of the price support program is that it allegedly sets artificially high prices for certain farm commodities which require little hand labor and can be grown at profit at present support levels. " Price supports should be rcgarde,.. farmers against forced selling under unfavorable conditions and economic depression," Mr. Truman said. "However, they should be revised so not to be so high as to encourage overproduction of particular commodities which sometimes can ocur even under conditions of full employment." He warned that the price support porgram may cost a lot more than 5116,559,000 if farm prices at home or if foreign demand for food unexpectedly drops off. But he said neither possibility seems likely. "At the present time," he said.

These appropriations would be spent In the 194J). 1949 and 1950 fiscal yeari. Out of these proposed appropriations, and money already voted by Congress, tlie President estimated the »12,542.000,000 actually would be spent In fiscal 1948 and 1049. The $9.000,000.000 In requested new appropriations for Mr. Truman's global aid program Included the $6.800,000,000 he in asking for the first 15 months of the four- rear Kuroiiean recovery program.
