Ball also advocated a flexible fnrin price support program, which would vary with tho carry-over of supplies from year to year. He urged the revision of current parity formulas to "reflect the realities of current production costs." As an example ot his proposal, which he would substitute for the Stcagall amendment calling for 80 per cent of parity support, Ball cited wheat. He said If the July 1 carry over were bushels, prices would be supported at 70 per cent of parity. However, if the surplus wero less than bushels, support would be paid on a DO per cont basis, and If over at but CO per cent. Ball said ho was for continuing the soil conservation service but opposed payments to farmers for carrying out conservation practices, and was against taxing earnings of cooperatives. lar allocations.
