FRIDAY, MAY 21, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE TORI! Government Seeks Obituaries Large Expo By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON (AP) — The government made a bid today for broadened export markets for livestock feed grains in an effort to reduce its 6 1/2-billion-dollar pile of farm surpluses. Corn, barley, oats and rye from government stocks will be offered for the time being to private ex porters at prices ranging from 10 to 15 cents a bushel below domestic market prices. These discounts ar edesigned to enable exporters to compete with grain being sold by other countries. The Agriculture Department, in announcing this program, placed no limitations on countries to which the grain could be sold. Mexico. may buy considerable corn. The department previously had placed wheat, butter, cheese, dried milk,' grain sorghums, cottonseed oil and f)axseed on a cut-rate basis for foreign buyers.

S. prices, propped up by government farm price support programs, are above world prices. The same situation applied in the case of dairy products, wheat, and the other products being offered at reduced prices. In making sales at such cut-rate prices, the government takes support programs and the prices it gets from exporters. In the case of corn, for example, the loss will be about 22 cents a bushel on the basis 01" current prices. Losses on wheat range from 41 to 51 cents a bushel. Butter is being ofi'ered for 35 cents below government cost. For the time being, corn, barley and rye will be .offered for export at 15 cents below the domestic price and oats at 10 cents below. These price discounts are subject to such changes as may be necessary to keep the export prices. in line with world prices. The government now owns about 392 million bushels of corn, 2,600,000 of uarley, 3,700,000 of oats and j 562,000 of rye. Additional quantities of these grains are stored under price support loans to growers and they may eventually wind up in government hands.

Thirty-five unrcported districts wore in rural areas where Rhee's candidates were strongest. Unofficial returns give the Liberals 88 of the 203 seats with Independent candidates getting 64. Democratic Ntitionlists 14 and Korean Nationalists 2. There were predictions that final returns would give the Liberals their goal of 110 seats or 8 more than a majority. The victory was at least partially a personal one for Rhee. His party did not control the last Assembly and he appealed to the people for a working majority in the next house. Apparently the estimated eight million voters—about 90 per cent of the electorate — gave him what he asked. And control of the Assembly could lead to extended term as president for Rhee. Only the Assembly can change a constitutional clause ending his term in 1956. IKE (Continued from Page 1) fied" at the President's new stand, expressed in a letter to Charles H. Percy, president of the Bell and Howell Co. of Chicago. Reed promised full hearings by his committee and termed it "especially important" that his group hear testimony from industries and labor groups who say they are being hurt by imports. Another leading advocate of higher tariffs is Rep. Richard M. Simpson (R-Pa). A veteran Ways and Means member, Simpson also heads the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, which must work closely with Eisenhower in its drive to boost or at least retain the now-slim GOP margin in the House. Only A Gesture On the Senate side, Chairman Millikin (R-Colo) of the Senate Finance Committee has also been a critic of some administration "low tariff" policies.

In view of the crowded agenda for the remaining weeks of Congress, administration official* apparently felt they would have to postpone some of Eisenhower's programs and tariff cutting was a good one to delay.
