Farm Bureau Meets Friday Plans To Discuss Price Supports And Redistricting The Beatrice unit of the Gage County Farm Bureau will hold its monthly meeting on Friday, Feb. 19, 8 p. rn., at the Beatrice National Bank community room. The program will be a further discussion, led by the president Carl ClaasNen, on the resolutions to be sent to the state organization. Currently under discussion is the lo in a special message, the President also asked for the right to share peacetime atomic power production information with this country’s allies and to give American private industry a greater share in the development of nuclear power. Eisenhower said these steps would have the effect of “strengthening the defense and the economy of the United States and of the free world.” Tile President said the onward rush of atomic developments has outmoded the 1946 Atomic Energy Act which mistakenly assumed the United States could maintain a monopoly in atomic weapons for an appreciable time. Monopoly Lost Counterbalancing the loss of monopoly, he said, is the development of a wide variety of atomic weapons which have “achieved conventional status” in the armed forces.

National Farm Bureau policy Is, formulated first in the local units, giving each farmer an opportunity to voice his opinion as to the views which arc finally presented to Secretary Benson and other policy-makers in the Department of Agriculture. Therefore, said Claassen, it is important that all members and friends of the local unit attend these policy-making meetings, and the officers are concerned that there be a good attendance. Alan B Kline, national Farm Bureau president, has gone on record in favor of the flexible supports as the best means of regulator years ago—today dwarfs in destructive power all atomic weapons. The practicability of constructing a submarine with atomic propulsion was questionable in 1946; three weeks ago the launching of the USS Nautilus made it certain that the use of atomic energy for ship propulsion will ulti-madely become widespread. “In 1946, too, economic industrial power (rom atomic energy day, it is clearly in sight—largely a matter of further research and development, and the establishment of conditions In which the spirit of enterprise can flourish.'* The President proposed a number of amendments to the Atomic Energy Act Her ret* Safe He said with emphasis, howev- farm market, and the opinion of cr, that changes should "make it the local groups has generally sup-1 clear that the authority granted ported him.    I must he exercised only in ac- The redistricting problem, while cordance with conditions pro-recognized by every one, has been scribed by tile President to protect met with divergent approaches; j (he common defense and security." “week-visioned docu- lor injuries received and $360 for mittee, disagreed with his Repub- experiment on heat, light, electri- medical expenses.
