Tlie only alternative to such ibrt to government controls over •oduction and distribution "of :ch a magnitude that no segment our economy would like them." Earlier, O. V.

Farrington said any program U> step up food consumption to the point where everyone was geting all he wanted (o eat would require government price supports 'at a moderate level" to guarantee farmers fair prices. The government's wartime authority to support farm prices at 90 per cent of parity runs out Dec. 31, 1948. Some congr | noil want a sliding support scale ranging from 70 lo 90 per cent of parity.

Although few voices were raised in uprrusition to Hie general purposes of the program—to feed starving peoples abroad and to reduce prices al home — several ' persons objected to the. waxtc-less- foocl program itself. Chief among the dissenters were officials of the leading grain exchanges who voted "with great reluctance" to increase Ilieir margin requirements to 33 1-2 per cent. Margins are the cash down payments on market transactions. A joint statement issued yesterday by the Chicago and Minneapolis exchanges said that Mr. Truman "is sadly misinformed" if he considered the action a cure for high prices. "We wiM know tliat such a move will neither alleviate nor correct the situation (or wliich the President is seeking a remedy, namely, high prices,'" the statement read.
