BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLVII—NO. 105 Blytheville 6«fi> l*ew§ Blythevitla Courier Mississippi Valley Leader Blythevills Herald THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OT AM*MM AMD BOVTMMOT MMOVM Farm Fund Cut Erased 4n New Bill Money for Soil Payments Wins Okay in House WASHINGTON, July 21.— (AP) — Informed Senators said today that $25,000,000 which Congress ordered President Truman to cut back in last year's farm program iias sprouted anew in the billion- dollar agricultural appropria- tion'bill for fiscal 1952. The lawmakers, who asked that they not be identified by name, told a reporter thi House probably passed the bill without knowing that it, in effect, reversed last year's order. The Senate Appropnanons Committee was expected to approve today its version of the measure. TMs also carries the topical S25.000.0-10 Senators said. The Explanation ( Q£ere is the way they explain it: TLast year, Congress voted some *36,000,000,000 to carry out regular government activities! But it directed Mr. Truman to save a half billion dollars of this by applying cute to certain departments and agencies. The President ordered a slash of $25,000,000 in the $282,500.000 "conservation and use" funds of the Production and Marketing Administration. These are the payments made to farmers for following certain approved prc^rr.:::" end practices of soil conservation. The agency which directs these programs, the Production and Marketing Administration, already had made contracts with farmers for the full amount. So it borrowed the »25,000,000 from the Commodity Credit Corporation, another Agriculture Department agency. PifA has Congressional authority to borrow up to $50,000,000 each year from CCCJ in advance of actual appropriations. The pending money bill contains funds which, will make it oossible for E'M*.^ otees-J?

" cloudy and continued warm this af- ; Controls Bill is Approved By House Version Lacks Features That Truman Asked WASHINGTON, July 21.— (AP)—A stripped-down eco- lomic controls bill, minus most of the added features President Truman wanted, was passed by the 'House early today. The measure, extending wage, price and oilier controls for one year, now goes to a Senate-House conference committee to iron out differences between it and an eight- months extension voted by the Senate. On the whole, the two differed but little on several major points; none on a'few. As the House bill finally emerged, It was a patchwork of amendments which appeared to satisfy neither Democrats nor Republicans entirely. Economic Stabilizer Eric Johnston said the bill does not give consumers "tlje break they deserved." But administration house leaders conceded it might have been worse. Wage Price Ceilings Beaten In the gruelling H-hour windup session ending early this morning, they were able to snatch nl least pai'tin.l victory out of a fight studded with defeats over the past two weeks. They knocked out an amendment freezing price and wage ceilings for 129 days at July 7 levels. They succeeded in reversing a previously - adopted requirement that price ceilings on farm and manufactured goods must reflect costs plus a "reasonable profit." Administration forces also managed to reverse an earlier House action which assured meat packers and processors a profit on every animal processed. And they salvaged the recent 10 per cent rollback on live beef prices. though the House refuseq to grant., -•-. - . .--.=;—the' additional iiine per cent roll- "Funeral Home Chapel at 2 Michael V. DiSatle. On severs! other backs planned by Price Stabilizer major Issues, the administration suffered stinging defeats. Reject Slaughter Quotas Among other things, the House torpedoed Mr. Truman's repeated pleas for livestock slaughtering quotas; denied him authority lo acquire and operate defense plants :>r create new government corpora- lions; refused him powers to license business or regulate commodity speculation; banned the Import of foreign fats and oils for two years', refused to consider farm subsidies, and slapped down a request for a new formula for figuring farm parity. As finally written, the House'bill eases credit controls over installment buying of automobiles, household appliances and furniture, and raises rent ceilings 20 per cent above the figure of 1947. These were the principal notions taken when the lawmakers staager- ed groggily from the House chamfer at 11:20 p.m. (CST) after voting final passage. 323 to 92. The concluding vote came after the House defeated. 299 to 117, a motion by Rep. Cole cn-Knnsl'to send the bill back to committee for further study. On passage, only 16 Democrat , and 76 Republicans voted against :he measure. HOT AGAIN;''*.-. ternoon, tonight and Su- !:"'•/A few ' scattered thundershb>fj f '% north ' portion Sunday.
