FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1963 fHE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Ag inoisan ain Heads Farm Bureau CHICAGO (AP)-Tho Amort, can Farm Bureau Federation has reaffirmed its belief in fewer government controls and in its president, Charles B. Shuman. At the final session of its annual convention Thursday the j;innt farm organization re-elected Shuman to another two-year term and adopted a host of resolutions calling for a let-up jn government regulations. Shuman, who operates a farm near Sullivan, III., has led the /arm bureau since mr >l. Waller L. Randolph of Montgomery, Ala., was re-elected vice president, a position ho has held' since 1053. The resolutions said a so- called free market system could more effectively stabilize farming than government programs. Tliey urged reduced crop controls, fewer subsidy payments to fanners and lower government price supports. Farm bureau members also voted their support of sales of U.S. farm products to Soviet bloc countries through private channels and without government guarantees. The farm group also came out against cargo preference laws favoring U.S. flag ships. "... In view of the extensive subsidies received by the industry (shipping)," a resolution declared, "we do not believe it is proper for government to direct certain cargoes to American ships when they are not competitive with other available transportation" The late President Kennedy had stipulated that half of the wheat this country proposes to sell to the Soviet Union be shipped on U.S. vessels. Russia has objected to this on the grounds that U.S. ships charge higher rates than foreign ciir- rlers. The farm bureau also voted against the administration's food stamp plan to augment i diets of those with low incomes. | It also opposed the administration's plan for medical care for the aged and it attacked proposals to cut federal income taxes without corresponding reductions in government spending. The farm organization also called for a limit of three years on the food-for-poace program. The following directors were elected at the convention: Fleeted at directors for the Midwest region were George Doup, Columbus, Ind.; William Kuhfuss, Mackinaw, III.; Charles Marshall, Avoca, Neb.; Olen Monsees, Smithton, Mo., and J. Merril Anderson, Newton, Iowa.

Continues Ilanl-S.ll On Johnson Tor Overseas Hy I'KTKR KOSO.V WiiH>iiiif;toii Correspondent Newspaper Knterprise Assn WASHINGTON (MIA) • U. S. Informal inn Agency the government's public relations arm- has pulled out all the slops to make the world better acquainted with new President Lyndon Johnson. This effovt he^an Nov. 2'2 after President Kennedy's assassination when the Vice President took the oath of office that made him head of the American uovernment. It reached a hi^h point with Voice of America's worldwide, live ; broadcast of President John- j son's speech to Congress early j Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 2'!.'\ III those five (lays Voice of '; America, was on (he air i hours n day ami I'M A worldwide wireless dispatches were j greatly extended hc.vond their i normal 10.000 words n day. | Monitored in 111 Amoriwin • overseas posts, tiiis lull news; coverage formed I he basis for! information services provided foreign ^ovenimenls to project a daily picture of the important events happening in the United States. THE TOTAL EI'I'KCT WAS TO assure 1 ho world that the change in presidents had not changed American foicirn policies and that the American i*ov- enunent remained strong. Korelun reaction to t li e Iiroudeust of President Johnson's speech, us analyzed hy tiSIA's research stuff, has been generally favorable. Moscow expressed cautious approval of Johnson's pledge to implement the Kennedy ideas and ideals and (o work for removal of the main cruses of U.S.-U.S.S.R. friction. This theme was rebroadcast In many lannuat;cs by Radio Moscow. Hut some Communist doubts were expressed on the new President's statement that the United States would keep its commitments from Viet Nam to West Berlin. Western European news media showed much encouragement and increased confidence in U.S. leadership after the Johnson speech. This came aft- helief that the events in Dallas happened just, as reported and for the motives Riven. TI1KRB WKRE OTHER MINOR dissents. Yugoslavia was uniteful that Johnson did not mention Cuba, but. Japan's Socialist party regretted that, he did not mention the Far East more specifically. From Africa there was scattered concern that President Johnson's southern background ; miuht have some effect on his J support tor civil rights. Com! nutuist China's "People's Dail ly" predicted that the U.S. im- j perialist policies will not. \ chance and that Johnson will continue Kennedy policy, j Voice of America has made ' no answer to these criticisms, j oilier (linn hy following the I nl pulley of reporting the news | straight and factually us It hap; pens. This may have been par; llciilarly helpful in getting the .' news behind the iron curtain. Russia has made no attempt ! lo jam VOA broadcasts for some weeks. So Russia's internal broadcasts that the assassination was the result of n Trotskyile conspiracy with the American radical right and the Ku Kiux Klan were disproved. THE JOB NOW IS TO continue familiarizing foreign public opinion with President Johnson's personality and views. This is the assignment that US1A television, newsreel, picture and news feature services have taken on. * A half-hour documentary on President Johnson is now being put on video tape by two Emmy award winners who volunteered for the job. * Two complete television shows on Johnson's life and career are being prepared, with Spanish voices for Latin-American audience':. * Newsreel clips nre being, prepared for 35 areas where there is no commercial news iile. * A sK-page Insert photographic life story of President South ; Johnson will go into the Polish ' and Itussian editions of "Amerika," t li v.
