Mary Margaret Monroe 9 Ezra Denies Tinkering With Soil Bank Program SPENCER of Ag riculture Ezra Benson says Sen Kefauver DTenn and other Democrats either have the facts or are deliberately trying to mislead the people in accusing the Eisenhower administration of political tinkering with the soil bank plan Benson was here Thursday night for an address at the Spen cer High School auditorium Only a few hours before Benson spoke here Kefauver the Demo cratic candidate for vice presi dent had made his political tin kering charges in a speech at Kefauver said of the soil bank money is being channeled to states where Re publicans are in the greatest Kefauver said that in Tennes see which he said is sure to go Democratic this soil bank payments have amounted to only Secretary Benson Is Heartened by Warmth of Welcome in Iowa By STAFF WRITER SPENCER The warmth of the welcome accorded to Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson during his full day and night in Iowa was most heartening to him This he told the writer in advance of his talk here Thursday night before an audience which filled the High School Auditorium and spilled out into the street The question was put to him during a press conference in a room off the auditorium attended by some 25 representatives of newspaper and radio from Iowa Minnesota and eastern states Iowa he said held some special claims on his affections He and his bride lived in Ames the first year of their married life back in the 20s when he was a graduate student at Iowa State College living on a S70 a month scholarship His grandfather was born in a wagonbox a hundred years ago or so at Garden Grove where he visited earlier in the day His fore bears made the Mormon from Nauvoo to Nebraska and subsequently to Utah and Idaho Once or twice during the day individuals in his audience had directed critical questions to him and during his talk here a wom an high in the balcony cackled out some comments Benson was unperturbed That was another question put to him during the course of his press conference How can you stand up so well under the bom bardment of abuse to which you have been subjected Bensons smiling answer stated in what amounted almost to spok en literature was that he had an inner peace borne of a con viction that what he was doing was both sound and honest TwoYear Basis Had he ever thought of resign ing his cabinet post I didnt know Dwight Eisen hower or any member of the cabinet when I was he replied I didnt seek the post I accepted on a twoyear basis The President knows I would not wish to remain on to the detriment of his Administra tion But Im not one to run away from a fight Repeatedly in the press con ference and later Benson lashed at critics who as he explained it were having to create issues because there were none at hand for them Emphasis on fixed price sup ports he said had been blown all out of proportion to its true importance In Iowa the basic commodities under the support program do not amount to a tenth of farm income In Wiscon cin its actually only 1 per cent Flexible Supports All of his predecessors he re called had been advocates of flexible supports while in author ity and every major farm organi zation at some time or other has been for flexibility Surpluses which have plagued agriculture in recent times were products of rigid supports The high farm prices of the Roose velt and Truman administrations resulted wholly Benson insisted to the insatiable appetite of he added our opponents are going to claim credit for those high prices they must at the same time take the blame for the wars which brought them Farm income this year said the Secretary will be apprecia bly higher than last year even though neither the soil bank nor the flexible support system has become wholly operative yet While agriculture is not get ting its fair share of the national there is no general farm depression There is no farm revolt there isnt going to two million dollars whereas Ken tucky which he termed a battle has received seven mil lion dollars in soil bank pay ments In i hews conference preced ing his speech here Benson said The facts are that only mil lion dollars have been paid oii so far whereas contracts for 261 million dollars have been signed The bulk of the soil bank pay ments will be paid out after the The secretary said there was no conscious effort or intent to hannel the money for political purposes He explained that some tates may have received greater amounts to date because of effi cient committees getting their ontracts signed Benson also said the soil bank will have its first real chance in the 1957 crop year He said he felt he program eventually will make possible the elimination of all rop and acreage controls Overflow Crowd In his speech before a crowd which overflowed the seat righ school auditorium Benson urged his audience not to be ieve the myth that this admin stration has brought heartbreak to the farm Benson also asked his listeners not to believe what he called two other myths the Democrats are the family farm is passing out of the pic ture and that the Eisenhower administration has been unsym pathetic to the needs of farmers suffering from No one who knows farming would minimize in the slightest the difficulties of the costprice squeeze many of our farm fami lies have been Benson said I assure you that this adminis tration is not satisfied with farm conditions as they are In keeping with our responsibilities to the farmer a whole battery of pro grams is being operated to pro tect and improve the economic position of our farm Generous Applause Benson was applauded gener ously during his speech and re ceived a brief standing ovation at its completion However he had his hecklers too as an unidentified woman high in the balcony interrupted the secretary three times On one occasion Benson had remarked There are people who dont like to see farmers make any Youre one of came the reply How about nine cent hogs someone in the same section chimed in Benson was unperturbed and continued his speech Benson visited three farms in the Spencer area Friday morn ing before going on to Nebraska the sixth
