This calculation went awry because of an Johnson asked Congress to:exceptionally good growing allow the Bureau of Reclamation to spend S319.8 million for projects designed to reclaim land, conserve water for irrigation and to create power.

"The budget provides for continuing construction of going projects which will supply wa-j ter to our cities, industries, and farms; abate water pollution and improve water quality; control destructive floods; produce electric power; improve navigation; and provide recreational opportunities..." At another point in the message, Johnson said: "The long run upward trend in agricultural productivity has contributed heavily to the nation's economic growth. But it is also a factor contributing to the current unsatisfactory incomes of many of our farmers and the continued high budget ary costs of our farm programs. Provides Food Assistance "While too large a part of our productive resources is still devoted to agriculture, we have derived important advantages from the resulting excess farm production by using agricultur al commodities to raise the level of living of low - income people in our own nation and to provide needed food as sislance to people of oilier nations." The Reclamation Bureau con tends that the programs of the Agriculture Department and of reclamation are not in conflict —" they are complementary.' The bureau also argues that the reclamation program docs not contribute significantly to or aggravate crop surpluses. The secretary of agriculture also holds this view. When the omnibus farm bill was tinder congressional consideration in 1962 the bureau prepared a brochure in support of the pending legislation. At that time, the commodity credit corp. as of Aug. 31, 1962 had under loan or in inventory a total of S6.8 billion in commodities. (The total a year later had changed somewhat, but the percentages of commodity participation remained roughly the same). Of thc total investment, in August, 1962 roughly 38 per cent was feed grains (corn, barley, grain sorghums, and oats): 36 per cent wheat; 12 per cent cotton; and 4.5 per ccnt tobacco, VALUES For Redlands Downtown Dollar Days Costume Jewelry Reg.
