controversyfilled years in the cabinet as he prepared to return to his post on the gov erning council of the Mormon Church He insisted his long campaign to get the government out of agriculture has been sound i IN THOSE EIGHT years Benson arid President Eisen hower have wrung substantial changes in federal farm laws out of a generallyreluctant con gress Price supports fixed at 90 per cent of the fair earning power parity price for basic crops were replaced by laws al lowing price props to drop as low as 65 per cent of parity in some cases Government plant ing controls on corn have been abolished Benson however did not get all the changes he thought were needed to cope with a technical revolution which has brought a fantastic boom in farm pro ductivity Net farm income meanwhile has dropped Govern m e n t owned farm surpluses have risen from about billion in 1953 to billion Critics have charged that Bensons prescrip tion of freedom from controls would flood markets and bank rupt

want to call it because it is sound and the overwhelming majority of farm ers know it Benson said his greatest ac complishment in eight years was stopping and reversing the trend toward increased gov

any sec ret doubts about his standing with Eisenhower they must have vanished late in 1956 Shortly after the presidential election that year Benson went to his boss and offered to re sign I told him that would be an easy time to make a change Benson recalls There had been so much talk about my be ing a political liability He said Eisenhowers reac tion was brief and blunt If you quit I quit Benson quoted the President as telling him Where does Benson go from here After Jan 20 he will re turn to Salt Lake City Utah to resume his post as a member of the council of 12 which is part of the governing authority of the Church of Jesus Christ of the LatterDay Saints Mor The living allowance Benson will draw is believed to be less than half of his a year cabinet salary Benson now 61 will
