(ARK.) COUR1BK NBWft FRIDAY, AUGUST tt, 1dm Farmers to Find Little Difference In lke r Stevenson Price Support Stands May Be Very Similar After Statements WASHINGTON (/n — Fanners may find little difference In the views of the two major presidential candidates on the question of price supports for agricultural commodities. statements nuide by Gen. Dwight I). Eisenhower, the Republican nominee, and Gov. Adlal E. Stevenson, the Democratic standurd bearer, at news conferences yesterday Indicated that their positions on this Issue, when finally outlined, mny be quite similar. Elsenhower, at Kansas City, said in reply to ft query that If he were elected there would be no tampering with Hie price support law. He said he had received no suggestions that supports bo Inu-crcd. Br ATI nun Flan Out Stevenson ruled out the controversial Brnnnnn Plan which Eisenhower and the GOP nutlorml platform had sought to tie to the Democrats. The Illinois governor at Mlnocqna, Wis.. said In pffrct that the Republicans, in trying to make the Bran nan Finn an Issue. were barking tip the wrong tree. He said this plan was obsolete, that it had not been endorsed by his party's platform nor recommended by Its candidates . Thus the statements of the rival candidates were open to the Interpretation that both endorse the •ntstlng farm price support law. Thia law requires that basic - crops—wheat, corn, cotton, tobacco, rice and peanuts—be supported nl not less than 9fl per cent of parity —the level in effect this year— during the next two crop years. It was passed shortly before Congress adjourned last month, with the approval of Democrats and Republicans alike. It has the effect of netting aslde> for the next two years, a system of flexible supports which had been criticized by President Truman and Secretary of Agriculture Brnnnnn. The Democratic platform promises to "continue" the top per cent minimum support. 1 ! beyond the two- year period. Eisenhower's statement that there would be no reduction in price supports could be interpreted as meaning that he too would advocate their continuance. Parity is a standard for measur- *kifr farm prices, declared by law to be equally fair to producers and to those who buy their products.
