MONDAY, JUNE 21,1943 T H E B I S M A R C K T R I B U N E - PAGE THREE Roosevelt May Effect Roll Back Sought by Labor WASHINGTON-- (AP) -The possibility that President Roosevelt may make new demands for food price subsidy funds if he signs the Connally- Smith-Harness anti-strike bill was forecast in some congressional circles Monday. While legislative leaden said they understood Mr. Roosevelt Is reluctant to accept some provisions of the measure, several thought he may approve the bill and then call on congress to furnish money to eifect the roll back in food costs that organized labor has been seeking. Lever In Wate Dispute Directed primarily at providing machinery for use in the coal wage dispute, which entered another crisis stage Monday with breakdown of negotiations between the operators and John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers, the measure outlaws strikes in government-controlled war industries, sets up restrictions to slow down walkouts in privately-operated plants, empowers the War Labor Board (WLB) to settle disputes and prohibits union contributions to political campaigns. Organized labor generally has looked upon the bill as an indirect congressional effort to prevent further wage increases and there remained doubt that labor's opposition to it would be greatly modified by new administration promises to roll back food prices by use of subsidies. May Act on Subsidy Wednesday The subsidy question probably will come before the senate Wednesday on a bill to expand the borrowing authority of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC). Senator Taft i Rep., Ohio) has moved to reduce a proposed $500,000,000 fund for subsidy payments to $250,000,000, an amount which would not permit the CCC to enter any new subsidy fields. What the senate does on this question is likely to furnish a criterion for its action on a house move to prevent the Office of Price Administration OPA) from using any of the $130,000,000 it would be allowed in a $2,898.,000,000 war agency appropriations measure to finance th" administration of subsidies. The house also lopped $30,000,000 off the amount its appropriations committee previously had recommended for all OPA operations. The subsidy action apparently split thi senate into two camps, without much regard to party affiliations, and the decision is touch-and-go. The trend, however, seemed to be toward resorting the deleted OPA funds. Gen. Ulio to Get Honorary Degree FARGO, N. D. --(*)-- Lt. Col. J W.

The bankers were warned by F P Powers of Mora, Minn , president of the state bank division of the American Bankers association that: Says U. S. Competing "The activities of lending agencies, controlled and subsidized by the government, have become a serious problem to small town and country bankers." (powers said that in the field of agricultural credit alone country banks have 20 agenceis competing with them "In addition," said Powers, "banks have been threatened for years by the passage of legislation in congress leading to virtual government ownership, control and management of the farm mortgage system." He listed, the Jones-Wheeler bills, the Fulmerbill and the ."most recent threat," the rssurrection of the Regional Agricultural Credit corporation by the department of agriculture, as an additional agency to provide more credit to farmers. : Powers attacked the Production Credit system as it is now being operated, saying the original plan provided the PCAs would repay government capital, become self supporting, operating under their own capital. "The production credit associations have nevtr become true co-operatives," he said. "They have not only continued to be government supported and supervised, but have become dangerous and aggressive competitors of country bankers." Howard J. Gramlich, general agricultural agent of the Chicago, Northwestern railway, asked the bankers to be open minded in helping the farmers to meet changing conditions- Gramlich urged bankers to remember the land boom which followed the last war, and the sad results Are Two CUtMS "Farmers may be divided into two classes," he said "If a farmer bought on a rising market, when farm commodities were selling well, they proposed--were classified as successful.
