' Farm Bureau Seeks More CottonAcreage CHICAGO MV-A proposal to Increase 1954 cotton acreage nearly 3'4 million acres more than the federal (,'ovcrnment figure of 17,- 910.44B wns approved yesterday by directors of the American Farm Bureau Federation. The total national acreage under the proposal would be 21.374.000 which compares with the 26 million acres planted this year. The directors also approved a plan to distribute the additional acreage among the states. Tn Washington, Sen. Stennis (D- Missi said Secretary of Agriculture Benson told him the Agriculture Department, will recommend "a reasonable icnrease" in next year's cotton quotas. '•This does not go far enough," Stennis said, and he urged the secretary to announce the definite fig- ur ehe will recommend. TAXES Church Seeks Gifts for Needy Ret'. T. W.

At the same time, Reed repeated his opposition to Eisenhower's proposal to cancel a scheduled Jan. 1 increase in social security taxes. The rate jumps up automatically from l'/ 2 to 2 per cunt of wages up lo $3,600 «n- nually, paid by workers and em- plovers alike. "I believe the American people want social security and are willing to pay for it," Reed sold. "While I strongly favor tax reduction and believe that the people are entitled to a larger reduction Chan that now scheduled, I do not believe that such a tax cut should be achieved at the expense of a sound social security system." Reed's statement, generally fitting a pattern of recent pronouncements by GOP leaders, may have been designed to counter charges by several House Democrats that, some Republicans are trying to "smash" the social security program.
