For Various Subsidy Programs
. By PETER EDSON
NEA Washington Correspondent '
WASHINGTON U. S. government subsidies paid to private
business and the farmers for the 15 years of 1934 through 1948 total
more than $14,500,000,000. This figure comes from a new Budget
Bureau tabulation. It does not include the cost of the food and cot
ton stamp plans of 1939-43 nor the school lunch program of 1930-40
and 1947-49. They would boost the total by another $643,000,000.
Grand total is more than $15,000,000,000, or over a billion dollars a
year.

and killed his father as directed
Monday after the man pumped
seven bullets into his estranged
wife.
"I shot my Daddy," calmly re
lated tinv Doyle Talbert, one of
seven children. "Daddy shot Mom
my on the back porch. He carried
her In the bedroom and asked me
to shoot him."
Sheriff Ray C. Hoover related
this series of events In the double

Fetzer Lee Talbert, 37, of Slan
field, N. C, went Monday morn
ing to the farm home near here
where his wife had been living
for four monlhs. He accused her
of running around with other
men and an argument started.
Talbert fired six shots from a
.22 calibre rifle into the 35-year-
old woman's chest. Then he car
ried her into a bedroom and shot
her again through the head.
Placing the rifle against his
own chejit, Talbert ordered th
small boy to pull the trigger.
Doyle followed -directions as

I
this direct subsidy business In a
big way in the early days of the
fvew Deal. It was completely a de
pression, farm-relief program
then. It ran from $300,000,000 to
just under $1,000,000,000 a year
from i!U4 to the start ol tne war.
Of the 40-odd programs classi
fied as subsidies in the new Bud
get Bureau tabulation, only nine
are not ot direct oenent to the
farmer. He has had 11 out of
every 15 subsidy dollars.

Operations Reduced
The New Deal's Maritime Com
mission subsidies began In 1938
at $1,000,000. Thev rose to $82.-
000,000 in 1946. Tola! Maritime
Commission suns;a;es, 1936-48,
were $390,000,000, Of this amount
$50,000,000 were operating sub.
sidies. Ihe rest construction sub.
sidies. Most of these subsidies can
of course be charged up to war
costs.
Government subsidy operations
have been considerably reduced
since 1918. For the fiscal year end
ing June 30, 11)49, and for the fis
cal year of 1950, Budget Bureau
estimates ol subsidies to bust
ness and the farmers total $500,
000,000 a year. But since Congress
has not yet completed action on
1950 appropriation bills, It Is of
course impossible to make ac
curate estimates.
There are only a dozen direct
subsidy payments now in opera
tion. Soil conservation payments
will be anout $227,000,000 this
year. Sugar act payments will be
$70,000,000. Export subsidies on
farm products will be $33,000,000.
Estimated total, $330,000,000.
Maritime Commission construc
tion subsidies will cost around $8,
000,000 this year, with no operat
ing subsidies budgeted. Next year
It is expected that construction
subsidies will drop to $2,400,000,
while operating subsidies will rise
lo $31,000,000.
