PAGE EIGHT THE DAILY NOTES. CANONSBURG, PA. FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1949 Work On Farmers Planned Grass Root Element to Get Fresh Attention From Washington Office Holders And Bureau Workers WASHINGTON, June 10. (U.R) The Administration was set today to start work on a "grass roots" ' campaign for the 1950 farm vote. Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Brannan har been assigned the job of selling farmcis on the Ad ". ministration's proposed new price support program. This he will set . out to do at a 16-state midwest Democratic party rally at Des Moines on Sunday and Monday. ; The conference, called by mid west party leaders to consider the farm situation, comes at a time when it appears that this session of Congress won't give Brannan much in the way of a permanent anu-aepression larm program. This means that Congressional consideration of most oi the pro gram will be held over until 1950, an election year. Top Administration and party brass are scheduled to appear at the Des Moines conference. There will be a sprinkling" of cabinet officers and midwest Democratic governors, nearly two dozen congressmen, and state and national party organization leaders. Vice President Albcn W. Barkley will address the conference Monday. This will mark the first time that Brannan's controversial plan has come up for consideration at a party conclave. A resolution endorsing the plan is expected to be put before the conference. Voting on resolutions will be limited to the G4 official delegates four party leaders from each of the 16 states. Jack Redding, publicity director for the Democratic National Committee, predicts that the delegates will go on record in favor of Bran-non's approach to the farm program. Not just because it's party policy, Redding said, but because it represents "grass roots" thinking on the farm program. Redding estimates that 6,000 to 8,000 persons, mostly midwest farmers, will show up at the conference. As party spokesmen see it, the primary value of the meeting will be to give Brannan a chance to talk directly to farmers and answer their questions and criticisms. The assumption is that "when they fully understand the plan, they'll go for it." . "At least the Democratic party has a pUn," Redding says. "No one else has a plan. All they're doing is sitting around and saying that our plan won't work." Brannan's program calls for continued high supports for farm income, but without the government propping consumer prices of perishable products like meat, potatoes and eggs. If prices of these products drop, the plan calls for the government to pay subsidies to farmers to make up any gap between the support price and the actual market price. Congress has been concerned over the possible cost of such a plan and the strict government controls over farm production that might be required. But there are signs it may decide to authorize Brannan to give the program a "trial run" on hogs. It isn't clear whether the low-makers will peg farm supports high, as Brannan wants them, or let them drop under the new Aiken Law scheduled to go into effect next year. National leaders of the American Farm Bureau Federation, largest of the farm organizations, have assailed the Brannan plan as an "economic mirage" fashioned for political reasons. The Farm Bureau favors the Aiken Law. But the Democratic National Committee contends that the of. ficial leaders of the Farm Bureau don't necessarily speak for the rank and file membership. The National Farmers Union, which supports the Administration plan, will be at the conference in full force. Without very strong grass roots backing, Brannan plan advocates concede there would be little chance of ever getting the program Ithrough Congress.

J., June 10 (UP) That pain jn your back may be a "mechanical backache," caused by faulty posture, fatness, or a difference in the. length of the legs, a Cleveland doctor reports. The physician, George S. Phalen, of the Cleveland clinic, said in a report to the American Medical Association, that "good body balance is necessary to maintain the erect position." "With good posture, head is high, chin up and in, chest up, shoulders relaxed and back, abdomen flat, lower back flattened, knees straight and feel parallel," he said. "Little actual muscle energy is required to maintain the erect position with good posture because the body is so correctly balanced. "It is obvious, however, how quickly normal body balance is upset by a sagging abdomen, a flat-tended chest, humped shoulders and a swayed back. With poor posture, unnatural stresses and strains are thrown upon the muscles and ligaments which support the vertebral column. These stresses and strains become most pronounced at the lumbo-sacral joint." "Mechanical backache," he said, can be remedied by "certain sim ple remedies," including the sleep ing on a firm bed, heat applica tions, gentle massage, a series of exercises, vitamin supplements where indicated, a reduction in the diet and mild sedatives. Women, he said, because of the prevalence of obesity in them are more apt to have a "mechanical backache." VAN EMAN BROS. HARDWARE 53 W.
