falling temperatures. The grain
does not have a protective snow
cover in many sections.
Soybeans also were ahead most
of the day, particularly the old
crop months. Japan bought 670,000
bushels of cash soybeans over
night. Feed grains lagged, partic

Flexible Price
Support Gains
OMAHA Wl Secretary of Agri
culture Ezra Benson was headed
back to Washington Thursday after
a brief sales tour for the adminis
tration's farm program which
brought what he called "very
heartening" response.
Benson told a news conference in
Omaha Wednesday night that while
many still are opposed to the new
program providing a flexible rath
er than rigid price support system,
he feels sentiment is "growing
very markedly" for the plan. Dur
ing the preceding two days he had
made a number of appearances in
Oklahoma and Nebraska.
In his final talk of the tour, a
banquet address to the Nebraska
Farmers' Union, Benson declared
"it is crystal clear that the present
price support program is not Dro-
tecting farm income and farm
prices." i
Despite all the effort and ex
pense poured into it "farm inenm
has dropped in five of the last six
Rigid price supports were "clear
ly not intended for
he said, but were maintained "nn
the assumption that all-out produc
tion was necessary year after
" '.:-.- These folks did it. You can too!
