They voted overwhelmingly yesterday to approve the marketin quota proposals advanced by Secretary of Agriculture Benson. In this they followed the lead of the wheat farmers who voted last August for controls by a 7-1 margin. Cotton farmers in 20 states turned out about 500,000 strong and voted 16 to 1 in favor of marketing control lor the 1954 cotton crops. The percentage of "yes" votes was about 94 per cent—a new record— compared with 89.4 per cent in December, 1949, the last time cotton controls were voted in a referendum. The unofficial vote was 447.000 yes to 2,000 no. Peanut growers in 13 states voted 17 to 1 for controls on peanut mar- ' keting for the next three years. The unofficial vote showed 61,000 farmers voted for peanut controls to 3,600 against. Controls must be approved by a two-thirds majority of those voting to become effective. By approving controls, growers are assured that the government next year will continue to support cotton and peanut crops at 90 per cent of parity. Had the farmers rejected controls, the support price would have dropped to 50 per cent of parity. At present the government sul- j port price on cotton is 31 cents | a pound: on peanuts S237.60 a ton. : 'Vigorous 7 Disposal Plan To Be Asked CHICAGO (AP) — The American Farm Bureau Federation may call upon Uncle Sam to put on a "vigorously prosecuted" sales and disposal campaign to get rid of the bulk of his four-billion-dollar farm surplus. The Agriculture Department, which holds these surpluses under farm price support programs, may be asked to enlist the aid of private traders throughout the world. This request is being embodied in resolutions being drafted for approval of the farm organization's annual convention being held here this week. Officials said they foresaw no opposition to it. Secretary of Agriculture Benson hinted a such a possible change in the farm program when he told farm leaders here high jovern- ment price supports and other "well-meaning laws did not stop farm prices from going down." In a speech prepared for the convention, Benson again expressed doubt about the fixed high-level farm price supports prog-ram, enforced through planting and marketing controls, used by Democratic administrations for the past 20 years. It has not established farm income, he said. Farm Bureau policy drafters said it would be impossible for any kind of federal farm-aid program to work satisfactorily as long as present surpluses of wheat, cotton, corn, dairy products, flaxseed and other commodities overhang farm markets to depress prices. "Guide Posts" Due Whether the farm organization will outline ways and means of unloading the surpluses was a matter which only the final draft of resolutions would determine. But spokesmen said the farm organization probably would list a number of guide posts for such an operation. Such sales, leaders said, should not disrupt domestic markets for current production or risk destroying the possibility of maintaining and expanding foreign markets. The resolutions, which will be submitted to the convention tomorrow for adoption, are expected to devote much attention to labor problems.

Dean headed for Washington today, hopeful that a Korean peace conference will be called despite seven weeks of no progress preliminary negotiations. As he boarded a Pan American airliner for a nonstop flight to Honolulu, Dean told newsmen it "distinctly possible" that talks set up a peace conference will be resumed although it might take ;ome time. Dean, spokesman for 17 Allied nations which fought in Korea , broke off the talks Saturday and demanded that the Communists apologize for accusing the United States ot conniving with South Ko•ea to release 27,000 anti-Red prisoners last June.

Although the outlook for a Korean peace conference was doubtful, South Korea's President. Syng- man Rhee told a news conference in Seoul that he would give the conference 90 days to make progress toward unification of his country . One Short Wait Rhee stressed, however, that he would wait only a "certain time" for the conference to get underway.

In requesting the Council to lake this action. Mr. Jackson carriet out one of the promises that figured prominently in his campaign Speaking in behalf of this action. Mr. Jackson referred to the perennially low ebb of municipal finances when he said: "I think that conditions are such that we can stand the cut in salary. He also said "I have other terests to look after and I think I can handle the mayor's job a half-time basis." As Before The ordinance specifies that the job shall be a part-time one and sets the salary at S2.400 a year. The office also was a part-time affair at this same salary when it was held by Mr. Jackson from 1942 until 1950. Addressing the mayor and Council, he added that "we have a big job but 1 know we can do it if we work together." He said he had talked to numerous persons, both his political friends and enemies, and "I feel I will have cooperation of Tie city," He told the Council and mayor bat "I will need your help even though you are leaving office" and received their assurances of co-operation. •Mr. Jackson frankly admitted .hat politics is a "funny" business— 'you all know that" — but promised that "we will have good, honest people in the city government."

The President marie the state- limited program of atomic re- ment at a news conference at which he also said he does not intend to ask any change in the atomic energy act which would lead to this country's sharing scientific processes or techniques for building atomic weapons. Eisenhower said he is by no means giving up hope the Russians will decide to accept the proposal he recently made in a speech to the United Nations—that all the atomic powers join In a search, with emphasis on peacetime power development. But even a rejection of this offer by the Soviets, Eisenhower said, would not stop him from trying to meet the problem of international control in another way. A reporter asked the President about Secretary of Defense Wilson's statement to the North Atlantic Council in Paris yesterday that Congress would be asked soon to permit the sharing of informa- Atomic Share Plan Cheers U. S. Allies By TOM MASTERSON PARIS (AP) — The North Atlantic Council of Ministers went into the closing sessions of its 12th meeting today considerably cheered by the Eisenhower administration's pledge to work for a sharing of atomic tactics with America's 13 NATO allies. The prospects of limited atomic cooperation, raised yesterday by U.S. Defense Secretary Charles E. Wilson, helped ease some of the sting left by Secretary of State Dulles' threat the day before that American aid to Europe may be cut If the European army isn't, approved soon. Wilson promised only that Con- •css would be asked to approve citing the NATO nations have 'pertinent information" on how to ise the atomic weapons America s building. He did not say the Ulics might be told how to build hem themselves. Nor did he offer to share U.S. tomin weapons with..anyone, but 90-day ceremony at 9:30 a, m. Jan. 1 in Hie Municipal Hall.

A 5 per cent increase in ground forces to give NATO 103 front-line and reserve divisions. 3. A 15 per cent boost in naval craft, for a total of about 1,900 by the end of next year. Wilson promised NATO allies the United States would keep up its supply to them of modern weapons and munitions. He .called on West Europe's'military leaders to Kerry on with the job of devising procedures for using the weapons to best advantage. tion on atomic weapons with Its NATO allies. Some Changes Needed Eisenhower replied that some changes in the law will be necessary before this country can realize the fullest advantages ot atomic progress. But no changes are contemplated, he went on, which have anything to do with the scientific processes involved in developing atomic energy or with the building of atomic weapons. This appeared to mean that what the administration does contemplate, if Congress approves, is .sharing information about the use of atomic weapons and perhaps sharing the weapons themselves with America's allies. Along that line Eisenhower said it would depend on circumstances, meaning military circumstances, whether this country turned over atomic weapons to its ailes. He said if war comes America should use its atomic weapons in whatever way would be to the best advantage of the United States. Quite possibly, he said, it would be best to let an ally use American weapons under certain circumstances. The President said the administration has received no official Soviet reaction to the plan he outlined to the United Nations General Assembly. Seek "Meeting of Minds" At the news conference, the President also: 1. Stated that the general objective of the series of conferences with GOP legislative leaders which he will begin tomorrow is to secure meeting of minds. 2.
