contest Somebody in Iowa with a math ematical mind and no apparent fondness for the farm program has sent various senators a letter pur porting to show how a farmer can collect cornacreage payments from Uncle Sam and continue to produce almost the same amount of corn The hybrid seed corn raised on Henry A Wallaces farm at Grimes Iowa figures in the story It says a 60 acre corn farm in Iowa at

between Murphy and the congressmen over that circuit court judgeship gave conflicting opinions of its justification and its outcome Claim Bounds Overstepped Some claimed the congressmen were overstepping the bounds of po litical propriety in attempting to work Independently of Senator Mur phy They said the administra tion would recognize Murphys sen atorial prerogatives and give his ad
