Kline, president of the j 'American Farm Bureau FedwH tion and J. T. Sanders, legislative, counsel of the National Grange. endorsed the European recovery, : program (ERP) as a contribution . 'to world peace. But both men: ' asked that the Secretary of Agn-1 .culture sit on a policy making, i Marshall plan commission. . J l Kline told the Senate Foreign, '/.Relations committee that u. . ' shipments of farm machinery and i nitrogen fertilizers could be made ' to Europe, despite shortages here Food shipments, he said, would place additional strain on the U. S. economy, but food exports under the program actually would be less than shipments in recent years. Sanders said that the recovery orogram might heal the breach between industrial countries of western Europe and food produc- in« regions of eastern nations. He wirned that the program should not be regarded primarily as a means of combatting Communism. Meeting Here on Feb. 3 to Discuss New Crop Varieties; \V 0 Scott from the Agronomy] Department.
