Plan Will Pass,
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.
Democratic leader Lucas (111.)
predicted the Senate will pass
the "compromise" Anderson
farm plan today. Lucas told re
porter!, however, he aeei no
chance for adjournment of Con
gress by Saturday. That had
been the target dale.
Lucas was questioned after a
brief conference with President
In view of the legislation pend
ing, Lucas said he doesn't lee
how Congress can adjourn by
"We are going to pass a farm
bill." he said.
"It will be the Anderson bill."
Asked If the Anderson bill
was acceptable to the President,
Lucas replied "I don't know."
Mr. Truman has been reported
by some callers as favoring 90
percent of parity price support
for basic crops Instead of the
sliding scale of 75 to 90 percent
proposed by Senator Anderson

By all accounts today, the
President was standing for farm
price supports at 90 percent of
parity on six so-called basic crops
cotton, corn, wheat .tobacco,
rice and peanuts.
Parity is a level aimed at giv

period favorable to them.

the basic-crops, ranging between
75 and 90 percent of parity.
For 1950, the support level
under the Anderson bill would
be 90 percent of parity on those
basic crops under production or

being no prospect of removing
controls from this group.
