MARTIN CHICAGO The American Farm Bureau Federation may call upon Uncle Sam to put on a "vig- orously prosecuted" sales and dis- posal campaign to get rid of the julk of his "four-billion-dollar farm surplus. The Agriculture Department, which holds these surpluses under :arm price support programs, may be asked to enlist the aid of pri- ate traders throughout the world. This request is being embodied n resolutions being drafted for ap- iroval of the farm organization's Annual convention being held here this week. Officials said they fore- ;aw no opposition to it. Secretary of Agriculture Benson linted at such a possible change in the farm program when he told arm leaders here high govern- ment price supports and other 'well-meaning laws did not stop arm prices from going down." In a speech prepared for the onvention, Benson again ex- xressed doubt about the fixed Dish- evel farm price supports program, nforced through planting and marketing controls, used by Demo- ratic administrations for the past 0 years. It has not established arm income, he said. Seek Over-All Program Without giving details, Benson aid the Eisenhower administra- ion has been "working on an over- 11 program to help insure the armer a fair share of the national income." He added, "I pledge we will use every resource to find lew markets for farm products and) to recapture, in so far lossible, overseas markets that we ave lost." Congress must act at the coming ession because authority for pres- nt price props on basic crops xpires this year.

Members of the committee, who declare that the Farm Bureau is not antilabor, .said delegates were deeply concerned by the concen- tration of power in the hands of labor unions. In .this connection, Bureau Presi- dent Allan's. Kline told the con- vention yesterday that one of the major problems of today is finding ways of dealing with "labor mo- nopoly" without interfering with the legitimate rights and interests of working people. Some delegates were asking the convention to go on record urging amendment of the Taft-Hartley Act to prohibit the union shop as well as the closed shop. Some also wanted industrywide and areawide bargaining prohibited. Another proposal being pressed was that the farm organization seek transfer of the administration of labor management laws to state governments to the extent that they are willing and able to assume such responsibility.
