Morning news photo Benson sees huge losses unless supports dropped by b. L. Livingston Washington feb. 15 a Secretary of agriculture Benson has told Congress that losses under the government farm program could be staggering unless the present system of rigid Price supports is abandoned.

But with the common fully credit corporation already holding nearly seven billion dollars Worth of stored farm produce and carry ing a loss Reserve of three fourths of a billion dollars Benson said ultimate losses might be they could be staggering unless interpreting the news reef position Clear West heeds strength by j. M. Roberts or. I associated press news analyst the principle argument in favor of diplomatic negotiations with Russia since Stalin s death has been that they might produce clearer evidence of what Krem Lin s policy really is. That argument has now been vindicated. The Allied ministers at Berlin have finally mane Vered Molotov onto the record with a statement which verifies the Long standing belief that advanced military bases in Europe Are Russia s prime consideration. That makes it easier for the Al lies themselves to decide what to do. It Points up in particular that the United states must maintain Strong forces in Europe indefinitely. For seven years the Miles have been trying to get a definitive test of Russia s agreement to withdraw her troops from Austria Hungary and her other Southeastern euro Pean satellites when an austrian peace treaty was signed. Russia s repeated refusal to sign a treaty was believed to have hinged on that Point. Now Molotov says so directly. He s willing to sign the treaty if his troops can remain.

Seized quickly and forcefully by those who contend that the rus Sian military line must be fared by the full strength of a unified Europe through the ratification of the european defense Community. It must be Clear however. Amt Molotov himself scored something of a Success in his opposition to this idea when he obtained from Tho three Western Powers the admission that under their own con caption of a unified Germany tint nation will be empowered to pull Western Germany out of Edc if she Ever attains unification and a Pence treaty. That is one of the fears which French leaders have stressed heavily As they delayed action on Edc. They want Gnann tech that Germany cannot pull her forces out to establish a National army Ever and that if she should try to do so British and american sup port would be unequivocal and unlimited. Molotov s Success at this Point however is one of propaganda. As opponents of Edc try to use it it can be countered from the Al lied Side by the facts of German life which require her As Long a the russian armies remain on her Borders to seek safety with the West. For the Allied part their Suc Cess permits them to move for Ward with much of the Guesswork removed from their approach to policy. We head in a different he added. Benson s views were set Forth a defense of the administration s flexible Price support pro Gram during an embattled closed door appearance before the House appropriations committee last month.
