BULLETIN WASHINGTON April 4 m A subcommittee of five mem bers ot the house agriculture committee composed of Chair man Hnngen und Representa tive Purnell of Indiana and Williams of Illinois the ranking republican members and As well of Louisiana and Kinche loe of Kentucky the ranking minority members desig nated today to draft a farm re lief bill WASHINGTON April 4 The big problem that now confronts the senate and house agriculture committees as the time approaches for them to begin writing the new farm relief bill is what policy to pursue with respect to defraying the cost of controling crop sur pluses In the opinion of many adminis tration leaders the testimony of Secretary Hyde has virtually settled all other phases of the farm relief plan that will be presented to the special session of the new congress Must Be Farm Board It is the concensus that there must be a federal farm board with board powers commodity advisory to keep a close watch over ticn agencies to buy up surpluses and filter them out on the markets in such a way as to maintain a fairly constant price level But there is still a major differ ence as to how the cost of control ing surpluses is to be met In this connection the debenture plan ad vocated for many years by the Na tional Grange appears to be arous ing considerable interest in and out of the committee Some who favored the equaliza tion fee provision of the twice vetoed McNaryHaugen bill arc looking with favor into the plan because they feel that a specific method of meeting the cost con troling surpluses must be set down If the whole plan of farm relief Is to succeed Provides No Specific Plan The new McNary hill which is generally regarded as providing what the administration wants in the way of farm relief makes no provision for the functions which the equalization fee was intended to serve It provides for government loans to stabilization agencies with which to buy up surpluses and the assump tion 13 that if the agencies should lose money they would not be re quired to pay back the full amounts borrowed Mexican Revolution on Its Last Leg WHERE IS HE IOWA FORECAST Probably local showers or thunderstorms
