Ike Backers Seek Final Farm Action WASHINGTON of the administration farm proposals continued their victory drive in the Senate today by killing mandatory supports for feed grains and soy- beans. They beat down 54-33 a substi- tute amendment offered by Sens. Young (R-ND) and Humphrey (D- Minn) falling for mandatory sup- ports at 75 to 90 per cent of parity on oats, rye, barley, grain sor- ghums and soybeans- Sens. Aiien (R-Vt) and Ander- son (D-NM) opposed this. They said controls over planting and marketing of these crops would be required if supports were man- datory. Okays Counter-Move Then the" Senate approved 52-29 a proposal by Aiken; Anderson and others to knock from the Senate jill a provision tieing mandatory" supports for the four small grains to support levels for corn. It had been sponsored by Young, Humphrey and others who favored extending rigid 90 per cent on basic crops, cotton, wheat, corn, rice and peanuts. Today's first vote came after more than two hours of angry de- bate in which campaign pledges of President Eisenhower to farm- ers and actions by Secretary Agriculture Benson were sharply criticized and defended. Doesn't Trust Benson Sen. Humphrey told the Senate that-he does not trust Benson. The administration, winner on two major price support issues._ yesterday, pushed for final senate action on the controversial farm legislation. Yesterday's victories were adop- tion of the flexible support prin- ciple for major crops in a range between and 90 per cent of parity, and approval of language allowing Benson to continue dairy supports at 75 per cent. Parity is a computed price in- tended to be fair to farmers in terms of the price of things they buy. The Senate made these decisions during a session of more than 10 hours yesterday: Vote For Benson 1. A 4J44 vote in favor of flex- ible farm price supports between 82H and 90 per cent of parity on cotton, wheat, corn, rice and pea- nuts for next year. This is the same compromise voted by the house in what President Eisen- hower termed a satisfactory vic- tory. The President had recom- mended originally flexible supports ranging from 75 to 90 per cent of parity, a legal standard said _ to give's farm product a fair price in relation to growers' costs. 2.
