Farmers Union Program: ^Thinly-Veiled Socialism :' III setting up their 1950-51 program this week, members of the National Farmers Union showed themselves to be caught between a professed desire to fight the encroaching welfare state and , an actual desire to fall back on the ' government for aid in everything from marketing quotas to education. ; Chris Millius of Omaha, president ' of the Nebraska Fanners Union, placed this group on record as "pledged to defeat the false philosophy that places more and more dependence on an all- powerful government." ,': In virtually the same breath, Millius ',' called the National Farmers Union plans for 1950-51 a "cradle-to-the-grave" program for farmers. To compound the confusion inherent in these conflicting statements, the union then adopted this program for the next two years: 1. Compulsory application of marketing quotas "to large scale operators who refuse to comply with production programs, so that they will not be able • to disrupt those programs." :_• 2. Extension of production payments "...', in the Brannan Plan to storablc as well ... as perishable commodities. ~~.. 3. A nationwide storage system mod'." eled along the lines of rural electrification cooperatives. 4. A conservation works program, employing under-employed farmers to do conservation work on their own farms or those of their neighbors. 5. A new type of federal credit at low interest rates to enable farmers to shift from less-needed to more-needed commodities. 6. Establishment of fair production minimums to protect small producers from having their income cut to "intolerably low levels." 7. Setting of production minimums in commodity units rather than acreage allotments. 8. A new government program for purchase of large farms as they come on the market and the subdivision of those farms. 9. Federal aid to education, plus government assistance like that given to World War II veterans for any youth wanting a college or vocational education. 10. Creation of valley authorities. Included in this action was an endorsement of the Brannan Plan, which also calls for stiff government support in the form of outright subsidies. In fact, Obed Wyum, a Rutland, N. D., committee chairman, said the union's recommendations go far beyond thnt of Secretary Brannan. ' He, too, added to the conflict of ideas by asserting that the union program holds for the first time a statement fa- voring the "genuinely free enterprise system." Spenkers nt the union's convention this week urged passage of the Brannan Plan so the "family fanner" will be assured of a fair share of the national income. There is no doubt in our minds that th« farmer is as much entitled to a livable income as is any other contributor to the nation's economy. But we feel this claim to a fair share through federal legislation is too much akin to the "Fair Shares for All" platform of the British Labor Party, which until its recent slow-down has been pushing that nation down to road to ruin via the rocky detour of Socialism. Those who believe that Socialism is still more than 3,000 miles east of Mississippi County stiouic. examine closely the National Farmers Union program for 1950 and 1051. It is a barefaced contradiction of the union's transparent claims that it is concerned with free enterprise and opposed to "all- powerful" government. The 10-point plan is so patently socialistic that it even precludes denunciation as such. It is hardly a pattern for free enterprise. Instead, it shows forcefully that the sponsors of this program have placed far more emphasis on "free" than on "enterprise." Views of Others McGlellan Justly Fearful Senator John McCIollan of Arkansas, speaking after careful study of the best figures available, told the Senate recently that lie was lear- ful for the Nation's economy unless Fair Deal programs are scotched. In brief, Senator McClellan figures that it, would cost the Nation's taxpayers some $25,187,000,000 to carry out all the Welfare State proposals advanced by the Truman Administration. This would mean a burl- get of $05,000,000.000, or an Increase of about 50 per cent over the' present staggering figures. Senator McClcllnn aptly pointed out that the initial cost of these so-called services and benefits is never the whole cost. To start the tilings now being demanded by the Truman Pair Dealers would cost 51,020.600,000, even the figures are not deceptively low. To pay for them In full progress would cost an estimated $25,187,000,000 a year. One of the favorite devices oi Federal agencies is to f;cfc something started on the basis of low estimated cost and watch the taxpayers' fur fly thereafter. It is not unusual for projects to cost ten or a dozen times what was at lust represented. Taxpayers ought not to be fooled for a moment by the captions aiid descriptions of these Fair Deal proposals. Naturally the advocates ol deliclt spending do their utmost to make their plans seem all sweetness and light and for the general welfare. Granted that some of the objectives named are desirable, it would still be the rankest and most unpardonable folly to bankrupt the country In the effort to carry them out, at the cost of confiscatory tax rates. It is even worse when huge annual deficits are run up In the pursuit, of these spending sprees. Note well, too, thnt Mr. Truman and his Fair Dealers are advocating all these new projects while submitting n budget for things underway that calls for running into the red at the tune of $5,133,009,000. Note that these additional spending jags are recommended at a time when the national debt is more than a quarter of a TRILLION dollars. Congress cannot escape responsibility if It accedes to these programs, and no more can the citizens If they let Congress run hog wild with tax money. —MEMPHIS COMMERCIAL APPEAL. Burma Reminds Us Three Bvirmcse newspapers hnve a point, in Rangoon they raise their voices in a pien lor prompt American aid; otherwise, they sec their little land swampctl by Communism. Thc threat comes from China, right next tloor. In trying to raise a retaining wall against the tide of Red imperialism in the Far East, our policy makers should not overlook Uurmn. It might do little or no good to save Hiam, Indonesia and Inrlo-ciilna, If we let iMao's agents or soldiers cra,=b through there. With Burma lost, India and Pakistan might also have to be wiped off our side of the slate. —DALLAS MORNING NEWS So They Say Overloaded— Negro Chief and White Queen Put British Empire on Hot Spot The DOCTOR SAYS The stomach Is a most Important orean and many things can go wrong with It, both real and Imaginary The lirst two questions' in to- dav's' batch are typical of those which worry a great many, people. o—I had a perforation in the stomach, was rushed to thc hospital by a police ambulance and operated Uy DcWIlt MacKcnzle AP Foreign Affairs Analyst The romance of the young Oxford-educated Negro chief of the South African Bamangwatos, who mode a white London typist his queen, has suddenly become an Imperial Issue and put the British government on a most uncom" able spot.

But even Senator McCarthy admits todny that he is not going to push Case No, 9. The record of David Dcmarest Lloyd's lite may indicate ^vhy: David Demurest, "Lloyd is 38. lie Is married and the father of two children. He was born In New York. His c\vn father and mother xvere Democrats, hut most of hts relatives were Hepiiblicans. He had one great aunt who died about 10 years ago, who was considered something of an eccentric.

Young Lloyd himself is of medium-build, light-haired, nnd wears glasses. He Is thc quiet, serious, scholarly type. He is an Episco- Vashington Co-operative Bookhop, along with a lot of other rVashinj'Umians who thought they vere going to get discounts on looks. Later on most of them found hey had beeii sucked in on a Commie front organization and got iut, Lloyd also joined thc National .awycrs' Guild, in the days when Supreme Court Justice Jackson, udge Ferdinand Pecora and other imminent attorneys joined. When he Guild revealed itself as way over to the left, Lloyd and all the 'thcr anti-Communists got out. In 1945 Lloyd went to Europe vith. the Hatrvmah economic mission, while there he says ti became clear to him that communism was lying to destroy European recovery. When he come back to thc U. S. in 1946 he looked around to see what could be done about It. Strong Figure in Combating Communism AMERICANS FOR DEMOCRATIC ACTION was being formed. Lloyd helped in Its founding, joined the staff, and helped draft the anti-Communist planks in the ADA constitution. In ADA, one of Lloyd's principal activities was in fighting the Henry Wallace Influence tooth aud nail. About this time Lloyd made application for a job in thc State colors. He was grndAmlcd from Harvard In 1931 and Harvard Law in 1035. He got into government .service through Department of Agriculture's Resettlement Administration. For three years he was or the .staff of Senator LnFollette's Civil Liberties investigating Committee Department. - While he being investigated, he got a Job in the Nfl frton<3 ESrf c ns D c.s ta mttHrtetrt. But he asked the State Department to keep his file pending because he might want to to stntc. In 1947, Rep. KEirl Stefan (R- N'eb) asked thc Stato Department for an abstract of its files on employes and applicants for Jobs under investigation. Lloyd's file was i sent to Representative Stefan. It of the House Appropriations Committee in January, 1948. When these hearings were pub- ished, Lloyd recognized his case, though he wasn't mentioned by name.

It included an admission that there were no question of. security risk in connection with .his case, and an explanation that his file should not have been sent to the House Appropriations Committee. Prom Representative Stefan, Lloyd assurance that a statement on his protest would be filed with his record. Lloyd thought the matter closed. Nevertheless, two years later he was to find, tbat Senator McCarthy had picked up the old Stefan file and publicized it without any qualifications as Case No. 9. In 1948 Lloyd worker! with thc Democratic National Committee as a research man on the election campaign .staff in Washington. He did not travel on any of the Truman campaign staffs.
