MONDAY, MARCH 17, 19-17 Big Battle Looms Over Agri Funds Wrangle Threatens Breaks Within Both Political Parties BV FKANT IHU.MAN United Press Staff Correspondent WASHrNGTON, March 17— (UP) —A sharp congressional wrangle — Which threatens to split both iiar- lics— is developing over the size of the Agriculture Department budget. jdA House Appropriations Subconi- rattce will begin closed hearings tomorrow on Hie department's request (or $947,000,000 to operate until June 30, 1948. Rep. Jamie L. Whitten, D., Miss., n member of the subcommittee, said thnt the Republican majority al- I'Ciicly lias decided "arbitrarily" to cut the request 40 per cent In line with the general OOP economy drive. He said this would wipe out the school children and cripple the Farmers Home Administration nrnl the Rural Electrification Administration. Whitten said the Republican intentions were disclosed by subcommittee Chairman Everett M. Dirksen, R. r ill. He conceded that some cuts probably should ije made in the department's requests. But he said he would oppose the sweeping reductions proposed by Dirkscn. He apparently will have some support from chairman Clifford R. Hope, ^, Kan., of the House Agriculture Committee. Hope said he would ask permission to appear be- for the group before it takes any final action. He was particularly concerned with reports that Dirkseii wants to eliminate nn item Of $19,000,000 for the department's new research and marketing program. The program is designed to find new outlets for farm products. Funds Asked for Re-search Hope was the co-sponsor and one f the strongest supporters of the measure when it passed the last Congress. "Research certainly is one of the greatest needs fo the country today with the threat of surpluses hanging over our heads in only a few years at best," he said. Whitlen said Dirksen's proposal would cut 5125,000.000 from rural electrilication loan funds, reduce 19-18-49 soil conservation payments by $100,000,000 and eliminate the S75,000,000-a-ycar school lunch program. He said the farmers home administration might be particularly •Vulnerable" to GOP economy demands. Tlie agency makes seed and machinery loans to farmers. It also makes 100 per cent loans to tenant farmers to buy their own farms in. certain instances. Dirkscnjs proposal • would slice FHA funds liy. S50,000,000 K . he said. I Crop IrTsurahce'also would •&£; eliminated with a saving of $20,000,000. Dirksen also uas said to feel that price support funds could be cut approximately $150.000,000. His argument was said to be that high prices and strong foreign demand will make large-scale price support ' unnecessary. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK)' COURIER NEWS Doggone It V» o paralysis during the war.
