MABTK-- WASfflNGTON Agricul- ture Department said Monday that net farm potential key to farm state voting in November likely to be around 9 per cent higher than last year lor the July-September quarter. In a monthly report, the agency said the net income this quarter could well attain an annual rate of 12 billion dollars compared with a rate of 11 billion dollars durmg the corresponding period last year. Could Influence What happens to farm income and prices between now and vember could influence how many fanners vote. Democrats have criticized declines during the Ei- senhower administration but Re- publican leaders contend that the postwar bottom to farm income has been passed and that better times are ahead. The income during the first half of this year was reported at an annual rate about 100 million dol- lars higher than the slightly mare than 11'2 billion dollars for the first half of 1955. By net income, the department means the amount farmers have left from gross receipts after pay- ing production costs plus The val- ue of products raised on the farm and consumed there and the ren- tal value of farm dwellings. Farm Marketings The department estimated that farm receipts from marketings in ihe Erst eCTt months of ths vear totalled S17.100.000.000 or cent more than in the correspond- ini: period, last year. Prices received by farmers dur- ing the period aver- j 2 per cent be-low last year but the volume of marketings j yea? was heavier. The January August toJal of cash receipts from Kvesi-x-k and livestock products was estimated at Slfl.3flO.ftTO.CWQ slightly above last year as larger receipts from in ]k. and chicken imre offset declines for cattle and bxjs. Evans former member of the Fed- eral Reserve Board of governors, said the Republican Party plans to ''carry the facts" to the farm- ers and other voters in a vigorous campaign. To Present Facts "The President said he and Re- publican campaigners are -going to go to the farmers, businessmen and labor with the facts of the accomplishments of this adminis- tration and its Hick- enloopet said. "These facts_will be presented vigorously and hon- estly. Our side is not going to deal in fantasy." Hickenlooper saw Eisenhower after the President had conferred with Dr. Milton Eisenhower, his brother who has served as an ad- viser on farm matters as well as on other _ Hickenloopef Said he based his report that there is a "general upswing" 'in the farm economy on the fact that hog and cattle prices are up from earlier lows. He said there is now "more sat- isfaction" among the farmers than there was in the late winter and early spring when livestock prices were down. "I told the President his pro- gram at least the parts of it which have become effective like the soil bank, gasoline tax exemp- tion and consolidation of farpi credit agencies has been of tremendous benefit to the farmer and to the whole farm economy. "I told him that when they have counted the votes on election night Iowa will be solidly in the Re- publican column."

Adlai Repudiates ian On Hiss 'Never Doubted Verdict Of Jury1 WASHINGTON ff Adlai E. Stevenson said Monday he has "never doubted the verdict of the jury" which convicted Alger Hiss of lying when denied giving secrets JtaJhe Communists. The subject came up at a news conference, held by the Democrat- ic presidential nominee who was told former President Truman had said he does not believe Hiss was a spy. Stevenson also told the news conference that while he has been highly critical of administration foreign policy, with "particular misgivings" about Middle East affairs, he does not think it would be wise for him to comment on the "present dangerous situation" regarding the Suez Canal. Hall Challenge On the Alger Hiss situation, Stevenson's atention was called to the fact that Republican leaders such as GOP National Chairman Leonard Hall have challenged him to repudiate the views ex- pressed by Truman. Hiss, a former State Depart- ment official, served almost four years in federal prison after he was convicted of perjury in deny- ing he passed government secrets to a Soviet spy ring. In Milwaukee on Sept. 3, Tru- man was asked whether he regarded, Hiss as a Communist spy. He replied: "No." When the matter -was raised Monday Stevenson said he would be very glad to comment on it. Then he harked back to a state- ment he said he made during the 1952 campaign. At that time, Ste- venson said, he made this state- No U.S. Plan To Finance Detour I have repeatedly said, I OfSu Can WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of State Dulles said after a conference with President Eisenhower Mon- day that there is no Ameri- can plan to finance the "de- touring of the Suez Canal." Dulles told reporters the United States is prepared to help finance, through the Export-Import Bank, in- creased exports of American oil to Western nations if transit through the canal is "impractical or greatly di- minished." Asked whether he was barring financial aid to other nations to help them transport oil around Africa and thus detour the canal, Dulles said he and Eisenhower have planned only as a contingen- cy the financing of American oil exports. "We have not gone beyond that in our planning and we do not believe we will have Dulles said. The secretary of state spent an hour with Eisenhower in advance of his scheduled departure later in the day lor London. In London, Dulles will partici- pate in a meeting of 18 govern- ments which failed in efforts to get Egypt to accept international- ization of the canal operations. Dulles reiterated in a formal statement issued after his confer- with the President that the. United States "is dedicated to seeking by peaceful means assur- ance that the Suez Canal will car- ry out the international purpose to which it is dedicated by the convention of 1SSS." "We are not, however, willing to accept for ourselves nor do we seek from other nations accept- ance of an operating regime for the canal winch falls short of rec- ognizing the rights granted to can- al users by the 1888 Dulles said. He continued: "We are not trying to organize any boycott of the canal but we cannot be blind to the fact that conditions might become such that transit through the canal is im- practical or greatly diminished. "There must always be ways to insure the development of vital supplies, particularly oil, to west- ern- Europe. Accordingly, we are carrying out planning as a pru- dent precaution. But our hope re- mains that satisfactory operating arrangements can be worked out with Egypt." Calm Approach Dulles added that "at London we will consider developments since the previous conference on the Suez adjourned Aug. 23 and, I hope, find a calm approach to the future." The earlier conference proposed internationalization of canal oper- ations. This was rejected by Presi- dent Nasser of Egypt. Dulles was asked specifically about reports that the United States is ready to put up a half billion dollars to help western Eu- ropean countries finance the re- routing of their Middle East oil shipments. In reply. Dulles recalled that he told a news conference last week that if it became necessary to re- route tankers around the cape there would be a shortage of tank- ers. He said if there was not suf- ficient oil available from the Mid- dle East to meet the requirements of the Western nations export of American oil would be stepped up. He said he was confident the Export-Import Bank "would find it appropriate to assist in the ex- port of oil" under those conditions. "Normal" Procedure Dulles said that this would be "merely normal" procedure. He said there had been no agree- ment on any amount the bank might make available but he stressed that "all that there is in the situation is the normal facil- ity'' mat the bank might provide. The government has called a meeting of representatives of state oil regulatory bodies here Tues- day for a discussion of a possible substantial increase in domestic oil production. are that production could be stepped up by one million barrels a day over the barrels produced daily during the week ended Sept. 8. lieves the Republicans carry -main level. the Farm Belt.

He went on to say that if that placed him in "disagreement with Mr. Truman, that is where the record must rest." Stevenson also said he didn't agree with Truman on application of jthe word "racketeers" to per- sonnel of the Eisenhower admin- istration.
