Advocate (Newspaper) - April 9, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 118th 335 TELEPHONE HI t-1481 Farm Bill Is Passed, Sent to LBJ Needy Family Plan Approved WASHINGTON (AD The House early Thursday passed a sweeping cotton-wheat subsidy bill and sent it directly to Presi- dent Johnson. The post-mid- night vole came after earlier approval of a food stamp pro- gram for needy families. The razor thin margin for the cotton-wheat bill was 211 to 203 as announced by Speak- er John W. McCormack. It was a double victory for Johnson and his leadership in the House. The food stamp plan, which now goes lo the Senate, is a key part of his declared "war on while the farm hill is designed to prevent any drastic fall in wheat farm income in this presidential elec- tion year. GOP Opposed The bills were passed in the face of strong Republican oppo- sition and boisterous parliamen- tary maneuvering. The wheat-cotton bill in par- ticular drew Republican cries of "raw and bloody power pol- itics" and a charge that the pro- cedure was "debasing the char- acter and integrity of the house of representatives." The bill came up under a pro- cedure that limited debate toi one hour which ran just be-' yoncl midnight and prevent- ed any What the House did was accept the Sen- ate version without change in order to speed it to the Presi- dent for his signature. World Price The cotton section of the farm bill provides a subsidy to Amer- ican cotton textile mills so they can buy U.S. cotton at the world price available to their foreign competitors. Rep. John V. Lindsay, R-N.Y., called it an "anticity, anlicon- sumer bill" that would raise the price of every wheat product. "It would raise the cost of spa- ghetti. It would raise the cost of crackers. It will increase the burden of those least able to pay for he said. Rep. Wayne Hays, D-Ohio, re- plied that the "price of wheat has little or no relation to the price of bread." No Alternative One Republican, Rep. Mark Andrews, R-N.D., spoke for the bill, and said "I can't go back to my farmers and justify vot- ing against this." He said no alternative wheat (See BILL, Page 10) VICTORIA, TEXAS, THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1964 Established 1815 Wisconsin Wallace Gets 25 Per Cent MILWAUKEE, Wis.

Or did it repre- sent a grudge vole by Republi- cans againsl Ihe stale's Demo- cratic governor? Interpretations were as varied as Wisconsin's political makeup in the wake of the segregationist governor's votes. Gov. John W. Reynolds, how- ever, won Ihe entire delegation of to the Democratic Na- tional Convention. Reynolds, running as a favorite son pledged lo President Johnson, received votes in the un- official Associated Press count, 25 Per Cent Rep. John Byrnes, who was unopposed as a Republican fa- vorite son, got Wallace, who had said he would consider il a victory if he received more than votes, thus captured nearly 25 per cent of the total voles cast. Reynolds had 47.8 per cent and Byrnes 27.6 per cent, "We won without said Wallace, whose one-monlh campaign in Wisconsin was cen- tered on attacks on the civil rights bill and alleged encroach- ment of federal government into private lives.

Advocate Staff Writer Legislation placing limits on meat imports appears the best way to remedy the low prices now strangling the domestic cattleman, Leo Welder, im- mediate past president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, told the Victoria Farm and Ranch Club Wednesday evening. The Victoria ranchman said the price difference is wide enough between live cattle and retail meat to absorb the in- crease cattlemen would realize if imports are cut. "We never have advocated complete abolition of imports, but have decided they should be limited to 7.5 per cent of domestic production unlil our prices reach 100 per cent of he said. "They are now al about 75 per cent par- ity. "Last year, commercial cattle slaughter was up four per cent, domestic numbers were at record levels and imports amounted to 11 per cent of our J own production. 'These imports cost the cattleman from two to four dol- lars per hundred pounds cre- ating a bad situation." Welder stressed that the feeder has been hit hardest, but that if present conditions continue, the men who produce slocker and feeder cattle will be squeezed as hard as the fat cattleman. Commenting on recent volun- tary agreements with major importing countries, Welder said maintaining of a level in line wilh imports Ihe past two years did not accomplish a solution. "A 3.7 per cent annual in- crease allowed imports will put them above today by he noted. The speaker compared the voluntary import level with several years ago, pointing out they would be far above those numbers because as late as Zoo Rulersliip Asserted by Lion Buddy, the venerable lion, is king of the Victoria Children's Zoo, and a stickler for protocol at that.
