Committee Friday approved 2110 an om nibus farm bill for the most sweeping changes in the operation of federal farm pro grams since the New Deal came to power in 1933 The catchall bill contained sev eral provisions favored by the administration but the admin istration is so strongly opposed to many of its provisions that it would be almost certain to draw a veto if passed in its present form There seemed little likelihood it would win congressional ap priival in its present form Even some of the committees Demo cratic leaders refused to predict flatly that the measure would clear the House REP W R POAGE DTex said it has a good chance of passage but I ddntthink theres any assurance The bill would varying support programs for cotton wheat dairy products corn grain sor ghums and rice Most of the new programs pro vided by the bill would go into forceonly if approved by grow ers of the affected commodities voting in a referendum THE DRAFT legislationwould allow Secretary of Agriculture Benson to set price guarantees for rice growers lower than farm law now permits It would al low growers to elect lower sup ports for cotton and com in ex change for to plant more acres itis theproduct of months of public hearingsand bickering by congressional farm law writers Everyprovision carries the en dorsement of a subcommittee Farm law now requires sup ports for crops ranging from 75 to 90 per cent parity Early this year the adminis tration asked Congress to give Benson authority to set price props as low as 60 per cent of parity AT THE TIME this drew a horse laugh from the House culture Committee which isdomi nated by lawmakers who have favored a restoration of the rigid high price supports of 90 per cent of parity which prevailed un der the Truman administration As time passed it became evi dent that Benson had the whip hand The farm congressmen realized that unless new legisla tion were passed and signed by the President this year farm law will require sharp and automatic reductions in the amount of land which can be planted next year The proposed omnibus bill would block these acreage cuts Oliver Corp at Charles City in Expansion Move CHARLES at the

unavailable to newsmen INSIDE RUSSIA TODAY Education Peace Consumer Goods Major Moscow Topics EDITORS NOTE This is one m a series of articles based on John Gunthers new book In side Russia Today By JOHN GUNTHER The three main preoccupations of the maninthestreet in Mos cow today are education peace and consumer goods It is almost impossible to meet a Russian without hearing excit ed talk about education The very first S o v iet citizen we met told us about the criti cal decision as vital as any that could arise in his lifetime c o n f r o n ting himself and his wife what to do if their son GUNTHER failed in his entrance examina tion for the university Without university education the boy will be a helot all his life AS TO PEACE it is talked about all the time No Russian wants another war Time and time again people went out of their way to say We hope that you will be truthful and tell your readers that we want good rela tions with your country and peace Every toast includes a plea for peace But of course conditions for peace are seldom defined The attitude toward consumer goods may be expressed by a small joke One Russian tells an other that the Soviet authorities have

goes touchi ness Fourth provincialism that is to say ignorance and uncivil izedness Fifth hardness The Russians can if they want be as charming as any people in the world but they are uspicious of charm these days and eschew it because in their view charm equals softness THE FOLLOWING appears in Baedekers Guide to Russia last published in 1914 Their character that of Great Russians has been influ enced not only by a long history of feudal depotism but also by the gloomy forests the unrespon sive soil the rigorous climate and especially the enforced inac tivity of the long winters Even
