Union Bus Terminal S Lubbock McNary Agrees To Aid Measure (By The Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Feb. 17— A farm bloc proposal to prohibit sa!e of government-held crop surpluses below parity price levels ti'ained strong Republican support today and administration leaders conceded that Senate approval of tho legislation was likely. Senator McNary o£ Oregon, the minority leader, said he would support the measure when it comes up later this week and S e n a t or Brown (D-Mich) indicated he was afraid he was leading a losing fight against it. Agree*. To Back Proposal McNary told repoi iers he had agreed to back the proposal, offered by Senators Gillette <D- lowa), Bankhead (D-Ala), Russell (D-Ga) and Thomas (D-Okla), tie- cause he felt it upheld the whole principle on which the legislative farm program had been based— that the farmer should receive a parity price for his product tending to give him equal buying power 1 with others. Parity prices for most staples are calculated to give the farmers a real return equivalent to staple in 1909-14. "Parity prices fit into the blue print of the Agricultural Adjustment administration legislation, involving crop loans and benefit payments," McNary told 'reporters. "Any action to dump crop surpluses on the market would destroy the effect of existing statutes." Some farm state congressmen have contended there was an apparent intent on the part of government officials to hold cotton, corn, wheat and other crops below parity, although by law the price administrator can not set a ceiling on any farm product until it has reached at least 110 per cent of parity. Brief Bits Of Lubbock county irrigation farmers are planning to order a carload of super-phosphate from the Tennessee Valley Authority to be used on alfalfa fields in order to increase production and to meet Agricultural Adjustment ad- jn i n i stration regulations on soil conservation, Walter Y.

Otis L. Baker, a Littlefield, has only farmer near a few more Guayule Legislation Vetoed By Roosevelt _ WASHINGTON, Feb. 17 M>; e g i slation to encourage the lanting of guayule and other ubber-bearing plants was x-etoed y President Roosevelt today be- ause it applied to the United tates alone, and he recommend- d that Congress immediately onsider a measure whose provis- ons would extend to the other American nations. In a message to the Senate, the hief executive asserted that "in he establishment of sources of crude rubber for emergency and defense uses it is vital that all potential rubber-producing areas n the western hemisphere be developed, regardless of whether within or without the United States." The vetoed measure, he declared, excludes important sources, vhereas "we cannot afford to neglect any opportunity to obtain maximum supplies of crude rubber." In limiting the promotion of juayule cultivation to this country, Mr. Roosevelt said the bill would contradict the spirit of a. resolution adopted by the conference of the American republics in Rio de Janeiro last month and "seriously handicap our joint war effort." smaH chores to do before he is ready to join Uncle Sam's marines and help clean up the Jap situation in the Pacific, he told Staff Sgt. Lon F. Rowlett, recruiting officer, Tuesday. "I've sold my farm," he explained. "As soon as I've sold four tractors and some combines, I'll be all ready to go." Dr. R. P.
