(UP> — nut producers see a two-handed r of help in new Department Agriculture plans for a long- ige farm program. ^ ' -In research," if congresi with USDA suggestions, will be more basic research, ese studies will b* a foundation which experts can build more v processing methods, giving mills added importance u a food d industrial product. Second is a production goal betow • wartime peak, but over pre-war •els. Thi» would likely be accom- nied by a slightly lower price- port, system.

That same date saw grapefruit, anges and lemons selling at 15, and 43 per cent .respectively of rity levels and canned grapefruit ice moved into government stores. For both citrus and peanut gr, »>s, .the Department of Agricml- re's prpoosjil to set up a "mod- nized parity" price would bring support level closer to the actual arket, On September 15th, 1947, for In- uice, parity for peanuts was Just cr 11 cents » pound. Modernized rity, including a credit for wages dd to farm hands, would have en just over nine cents lhat day. rapermit parity would have •oppccl from $108 to SI 26; lemons om J3.10 to $2.58; oranges from .62 to $2.50.

(UPt — Dr. Edward U, Condon, nationally- known atomic scientist, was assured today of a "prompt and thorough" hearing on charge.* that lie associated with alleged Russian spies. Hep. John McDowell, R., Pa., said the House UnAmerican Actir I vities Conmiitle* may open public; hearings on the case next week. Mcl}owell is an influntUl member of the committee. It was an Un- American activities subcommittee that made the original charges against Condon, who is director of Die Commerce Department's Bureau of Standards. In view of the scientist's strategic post, McDowell said. It Is in the interest of both Condon and the public to bring about a showdown as soon as possible. yhe subcommittee described the atomic physicist- as the 'we.akest link" in this country's -atomic security, and accused him of consorting with Communists and Soviet agent-;. Condon and his government superiors have denied the charge*. Contractor Slays Son, Then Takes Own Life ROGERS. Ark..

The USDA expecti 400,000.000 pounds of peanuts to move into non-food uses annually by 1950. These would be divided equally between feed-and-seed, and industrial channels. Under • i. Senate subcommittee's price support proposal, the crop as H whole would be assigned a value, taking suppiy, demand and other factors into consideration. Then regardless of the size of the crop, the support price would be set to Insure farmers a fair Income. The price would be high for short crops, low for big crops.
