The 1.8-million-member farm bureau wants government subsi- jdies, which amount to between iSS.OOO million and million 'annually in recent years, phased out over a five-year pe- riod.

Wade of Greenwood, Miss., president of the U.S.- based National Farm Power Equipment Dealers Association, predicted that new laws on fran- chising will likely be applied soon to the relationship between farm dealers and their sup- pliers.

Franchising companies can, by their actions, make restric- tive legislation less necessary, he said. William C.

I Dr. Young in a speech to the j Farm and Industrial Equip- j ment Institute, said if wage in- j creases do not level off, man-' dalory controls are a possibil- ity. However, the public should not be too critical of the fact that the requirements have been within the commission's target of a six-per-cent annual wage increase.
