These developments were the out. growth of a two-day conference sponsored by the non-partisan Cit izons Committee for the Hoover Ke- (>orl. The conference adjourned lasl night aflcr awarding Secretary ol Delen.se Louis Johnson n specia plaque "for distinguished service to the American people" In stream lining the national defense establishment. Johnson has set his sights on . mhisii-doll.ir economy cut in thi year's defense budget. In a .summation of the whole reor (-•anizatlon record to date, Charles B. Coates .vice chairman of the CiiiMns Committee, s;«ici it was a 'minor miracle which may become a major one." Ol principal importance was disclosure to the conference that President Tnmiiin Is prepared lo sub- mil new reorganization plans lo Congress which will complete the basic work outlined by tlie Hoover Commission for reorganization of thp executive branch of government Senator Lucas of Illinois, the Democratic senate leader, added today he expected Mr. Truman lo send IP a dozen plans to Congress at die eoniina session opening In January. Oilier Proposals Lucas himself advocated merger of the Corps of Army Engineers with the Reclamation Bureau Into a single water development agency. This proposal met resistance in Congress at tlie laa session. Secretary of Commerce Sawyer, in a special report lo President Truman, has also proposed consolidation and merger of all federal pro- (rrani.s of aid to transportation— excepting only such quasi-Judicial agencies as lhe Inter-State Commerce Commission. Former President Herbert Hoover urged among other things one transportation agency, merger of water conservation services, modernizing government bookkeeping and civil sen-ice, and unifying the federal hospital services. The American Legion today disputed Hoovers claim that government hospitals had patients for only 155.000 of its 225.000 beds, but was about to add 50.0UI) more beds any- egion Corniiinjider George N. ig said that no.OOO of' these beds were available lo veterans, and none was empty. He said he thought Mr. Hoovers' figures were out-dated. The Veterans Administration also came in for sharp criticism at the conference. Thomas M.

ICWA CITY. la., Dec. 14. <AP) Robert E.

The father of Margaret Anne fGecge) Jacfeon, 20. of Burlington a., had asserted his daughter was nnoccntly involved In a "one-sided romance" with the 24-year old psychology senior. A ban which Hamilton placed on urther news interviews with Bednasek was In effect loday.

White said he hrus confirmed a report that nednattk sought psychiatric advice several week.? ago. "We heard a rumor to that effect," White said.

Allan B. Kline, Federation prcsl dent, and oilier leaders of the fan organization are opposed to the plai which would let prices of perish able farm products seek their na tural lovcl. The government \uiul make up the dilfercnce, in dircc payments to farmers, it those price failed to give fanners a pre-deter mined fair return. Gore, In his prepared address I the Federation's 3!st annual meet Ing, said criticism ol existing farn price siipjiorl programs and higl food prices .stemmed from "mlsln formation and misunderstanding some of It deliberately foslcred b, people In the U.S. Department o Agriculture who berate Congress fo not accepting the Brannan Plan." "You and I know Ihls to bo an unwise and misinformed altilude,' Gore said, "but we had best rec ognlze first It Is all loo widely held secondly, thai It has been deliberately fostered and encouraged b] certain people in the -U.S. Department of Agriculture, and thirdly that II is dangerous to Hie farmer to a .sound farm program, and hence to the national economy." Gore lold the Federation tha farm prices have advanced because the tilings the farmer must buy lo mainlaln an American standard o: living have increased greally in botl number and price. "But," he added, "the prices of farm commodities, which rcpresenl the farmer's wage, have not increased nearly so much as the earnings of non-farm people. "I cannot emphasize too strongly Lhal. no farm price is supported until the commodity Ls so plentiful, in such abundance on the market as to cause the price to fall to such a low level that it becomes uneconomic, unsocial and nnwke for the whole country for it to fall lower loons on 7950 Cotton Issue In Referendum Final plans for lomoi-mw'a cotton niiu-ketinrr rel'Di-emlttm were made today in Mississippi County ami the IVoilnc- ion and Marketing A<lminis. nations cornmiltcomcii tor tne county were elected ycs- enliii', (airin,r a mce i_ in t Hie Cfl.n-L House i ierc t( f , mmwlcr the program for A heavy vote in lhe election - by agricultural lend- r ,° r :lBn " 1!il tlle market- w "":h will permit Brow ..
