THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 1950 ,.? rARic.v cotmrei? m Brannan r s Plan Launches Battle Program Gets Okay From Truman But Opposition Is Stiff / "^w By Oviil A. Martin WASHINGTON', Jan, 5. W) — President Truman yesterday asked Congress to p nac t the Brarman Farm plan aimed nt (1) lower fooil prices for consumers and, (2) a prosperous agriculture through direct government payments. This ne«- endorsement—made in his messace on the State of itic Onion—came despite blasts ol opposition from powerful farm •organl- ziitions at tlicir recent annual conventions. ft inimehed a farm legislation liattlr- that is expected to be waged not only in Congress but In this year's cnngres.>u'on:il campaigns, Mr. Tmnan did not refer to the Hrminaii plan as such. But the kind j of farm legislation he said is nccdrd was a description of the plan outlined l;y Secretary of Agriculture Brann.-ui hnfore Congress last April. Agriculture's legislative noed.s «'cre Ijroken inl/> two major caie- IWics in the President's nv'ssaw: fn Mandatory price .sununtts for the commodities not nn\v covered which are major sources of farm income. 12) A method of price srnnirt u-hich a\'oids pilinfi un of uninaii- aeenble surpluses and allows consumers to nbliin the full henefil of abundant farm production. A method of nrodrction payincni.s was suggested. Si'oninl Polnl Harrlrsl Ili| Tliis latter recommendation is the phase of the Brannan ulan th;>i i has attracted widest attention and perjiaos sternest opposition. i It would do away with the prc.s- ' ent plan of government purclmse of a art of the simply of nerisoahle products as a means of kcepin" prices from dropping belmv sunnor't levels. Under this plan, the government has accumulated several ru'iiclrrri million dollars worth of snroluses. Under the administration ntan ' pershablc products would be allmv- ed to sell at their natural levels It resulting prices failed to »ive the farmer a predetermined "fair" return, the government would make i'l> i!>e difference in payments from the treasury lla.\payers>. Brannan contends tliis plan would permit consumers to cat the surpluses and to buy the whole suon'.v at lower prices than under the present program. As to mandatory price supports the Brannan plan would assure such guarantees for prodnck rmk- me up at least 75 per cent of farm income. Appeals Rape Verdict LITTLE ROCK. Jan. .4 .«', — Robert L.
