Eisenhower told his news conference yesterday the Founding Fathers wisely had provided that when a treaty was properly ratified It should take precedent over any state law. Including state constitutions. When he deals with other nations, he said, he must speak for one government and not be involved In representing 48 states. He said he was glad to agree that any treaty or executive agreement that contravened the federal Constitution was void. -But he said he wouldn't go back to the system under the Articles of Confederation—before the Constitution was adopted — where individual FARM (Continued from Page 1)' times of surplus and raised during shortages, to stimulate production.

Gould of New York City, said In an interview that: 1. Russia wants butter nnd Czechoslovakia wants cottonseed oil. 2. A Swiss firm Gould would not name advised Andreas of the potential market, indicating that as much as 100,000 tons each of butter and cottonseed oil might be sold to the Reds. 3. As a starter, pending a policy decision, Andreas has applied for permission to buy 20,000 tons of butter and 3,000 tons of cottonseed oil from the Commodity Credit Corporation which buys up surplus farm products to support farm prices. The CCC has 435,000 tons of cottonseed oil and 10,000 tons of surplus butter. 4. Andreas ffered to buy cottonseed oil at 12',i cents a pound—the price CCC pays U.S. farmers and the going export rate. 5. For the butter, Andreas offered the "world market price, near 50 cents a pound." CCC pays U.S. farmers 65 cents a pound.
