AP—Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson said today the cattle industry has shown — through its resistance to federal controls — that freedom for farmers pays the best dividends. In a talk prepared for the 83rd annual convention of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Assn . Benson said it is far better for farmers to make adjustments in production than to depend upon the government to try to do it for them. ‘‘You can see that," he said, ‘‘when you compare your situation with that of producers struggling along under controls and price-fixing.” The administration farm chief recalled that when he took office in 1953. the cattle industry was in trouble with low prices, but that under aggressive merchandising, the trouble was erased and good prices and expanding markets returned. “At that time and always since, most cattlemen and the department resisted the pressure to put price supports under live animals. It was an unsound approach.’* I An overflow crowd of parents ;and friends turned out Thursday night for the annual county 4-H Share the Fun program in Roff I School auditorium Some 25 acts I were presented by county 4-H ; clubs.
