Associated Press and United Press International Full MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY AUGUST 19 I960 n e i g h b o r s 7c a Copy Paper of Two SectionsSection No 26S Kennedy courts farmers But program still secret By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette Editorial Research Bureau WASHINGTON The major party candidates if they have worked out farm policies at all are keeping them under maxi mum security Sen Kennedys meeting Saturday and Sunday in D e s Moines with Midwestern leaders is reported to be large ly exploratory Vice President Nixon is holding off his major farm speech until Sept 6 Farm action at t h e present session of Congress has just about been foreclosed The House Agriculture Committee agreed to seek passage of only two minor bills at the extended postconventions session SEN KENNEDY in announc ing the Des Moines conference with farm experts admitted If we do anything for the farm er we are going to have to move awfully quickly in January This would appear to mean betweenthelines that the Ken nedy technique will be to run on the farm plank in the Democrat ic platform until the farm sector of Ms brain trust comes up with a program At the same time the Democrats w i 1 be cam paigning against Agriculture Secretary Benson and trying to link Nixon as closely as possible to him Both party platforms of course recognize the urgency of the farm problem The Dem ocratic plank promises full parity income for farmers in all segments of agriculture This is to be achieved in part by loans on basic commodities at not less than 90 per cent of par U2 pilot given 10year term for spying p MOSCOW Ft The Soviet Union sentenced Francis Gary Powers to 10 years in prison A military court gave the 31yearold American pilot the sentence for espionage but modified it by specifying only three years are actually to be spent in confinement The rest of the sentence is covered by Deprivation of liberty That may mean as signment to a special colony with other prisoners or possi bly expulsion It is entirely conceivable that Powers may be sent out Powers family reunited of the Soviet Union when his prison term is finished There was nothing official on this but the feeling among some diplomats and correspond ents in Moscow is that the Soviet Union at this stage has no special desire to keep Powers after the excitement about him subsides The Soviet Unions lop pen alty is death by shooting Prosecutor Roman J Rudenko asked for a 15 year sentence Powers Soviet attorney goateed Mikhail I Griniov asked for less with out specifying the years There is no appeal pro vided for in the Soviet law but Powers wife has indi cated her intention to carry a personal plea o Premier Nikita S Khrushchev if she can see him The handsome Virginian showed no emotion when he heard the sentence He stood with arms folded as he heard an English translation of tins outcome of his vhreeday trial a trial in which the Russians tried to condemn the whole foreign policy of the United Stales in the cold war The courts judgment said that Powers committed a se vere crime but that there were three mitigating circum stances 1 Openhearted admission of guilt 2 Sincere repentance 3 The principle of Socialist humanitarianism Powers was downed on a May 1 flight which carried him into the Soviet Union at 68000 feel The incident led to wrecking of the summit conference and cancellation of the Soviet Unions invita tion to President Eisenhower to visit the Soviet Union The presiding judge of the threeman court LI Gen Victor Borisoglebsky read the verdict reached in a con ference of 4 hours 35 minutes

he left on his mission over Russia and was shot down May 1 Witnesses described the re union between Powers and his family as a hearttugging one Powers interpreter came out of the room wiping tears from his eyes Then a Soviet cameraman came out and said I could not stand the scene any longer I would have broken down myself MIKHAIL GRINEV Powers Russian defense attorney ac companied the convicted
