(International) Demos Boast Victory By 'Back Door' WASHINGTON —UP— Senate Re* pubhcan leader William" F. Know- s land predicted after a White Hou«e conference Tuesday that President Eisenhower will -veto the Senate,- passdd farm bill unless it is "modi-" fied" by a Senate ~ House, confer-^ ence committee. " -~ Knowland fR-Cahf.) and other* GOP legislative leaders discussed the farm, bill with Mr. Eisenhower at their weekly legislative conference Tuesday. Senate Democrats meanwhile boasted that they had won a "back door" victory over the administration in the fight over high price supports in the farm measure, Knowland said that "everyone, including the President' expressed, hope at the White House meeting that the conference committee '•may modify the bill." "It is unworkabte in its present form," said Knowland. I "I don't see how, if the bill was left in its present form, the President could sign it" Administration rorces until .Monday night had been successful in beating back Democratic efforts to replace flexible price supports with high rigid ones. But Democrats at the last minute pushed through a farm bill amendment designed to lift sharply the present support price floor of 75 per cent of parity for corn, cotton.,and'.wheat-; The Senate then went on to pass, 93-2. an omnibus far mbill that would increase farmers' election- year income hundreds of millions of dollars. Major provisions of the legisla-. bon call for mandatory participation by farmers in a $1.2 billion soil bank, modified flexible price supports, continuance of dual parity, an increase in dairy price supports and two-price programs for rice and wheat. The measure now goes to the House which last year approved rigid price supports at 90 pf-r cent o£ parity for corn, cotton, peanuts, rice and wheat.
