Kcarns. chairman of a House Labor subcommittee that has been investigating Music Czar James C.

The bipartisan Senate group considering farm legislation is studying proposals to make the price support program more flexible anu to change the basis for figuring support'prices. _ This proposal would call~Ior a sliding scale of price supports ranging from 50 to 90 per cent of parity. When reserves of a particular commodity were large, the support level could be reduced. This would discourage over-pro- duction and the necessity for th) government to.spend huge sum. for price support.
