United wire MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY FEBRUARYS 1960 7c Copy Thl Coniu of Kour scii HOME EDITION Murray not to campaign AMES WB Dr William G Murray took himself out of the 1960 race for the U S Senate Thursday but left the door open for a try at public office in 1962 He had said earlier he might seek the Republican An assist to small farmers Higher prices must be main goal of Nixon By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Bureau PRINCETON N J Vice President Nixon has recently in dicated that he will soon present ajid to the nation a new ajid differ ent farm policy Judging from the results of talking to rank and file farm ers particularly to those in the Midwest we are convinced that if Nixon can satisfy farmers on the following specific matters he will be taking a giant step towards his goal the nations highest elective office First of all Nixon must show farmers that his new policy will enable them to get better prices for their farm crops LOW PRICES FOR farm nomina tion for the Senate next June The Republican nominee for governor in 1958 in a statement said Although I have received letters of encouragement rrom all overthe state I have decided not to run for the United States Senate In checking with friends I have found too many who do not favor a repeat race with my opponent of two years ago MURRAY LOST to Gov Her schel Loveless in the 1958 gen eral election Loveless is the only announced candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen Thomas Martin R Murrays statement added Since I like teachingI am going to stick to my teaching job at Iowa State But I like politics and will be ready for a vigorous campaign two years from now should there be a de mand for my services at that time HIS STATEMENT did not say what office Murray an econom ices professor at I o w a State University might seek in J9G2 but he explained that he would be interested in the governor His decision to stay out of the Republican race for the Senate nomination this year leaves foiir i state Sen Jack Mii ler Sioux City state Rep Ken Farmers are agreed on this r i n g e rH Oliver Re crops is easily the No 1 comj plaint of farmers one point If they could onlv get ef nd J Seemn better prices f o r their crops 00 s a candidate they would prosper And price F statistics would seem to bear tor farmers out1 on this Over the months farmer after farmer has told our interview ers We dont get enough for our crops The prices we get are not high enough for us to live We cant exist with the prices of t h e crops we raise what they are today In other words if the Nixon plan does not show farmNorth Iowa cloudy through they will get more for their crops it wont satisfy them regardless of where they live Second of all Nixon must con vince farmers that his plan is tailor made to help the small and medium sized just the big farmer Too many farmers are of the opinion thatthe present policy works to the advantage of the big farmer To too many little farmers the Administrations present policy seems to be only to help bigger the big farmer get o OC1J JJUllitvU rilCKeUlUUIJCL cloudy elsewhere lows in the RiOwa said he has not made 20s Cloudy Friday highs lowany

high1 Friday 2535 AS AN ILLUSTRATION a farmer with 160 acres 320 acres or a section 640 acres of wheat land in Kansas hears or reads that certain big farm ers in his state have received or more from the fed eral government for wheat sub sidies or for not planting wheat This is probably more money than the small farmer has ever seen or will see during his life time As result rightfully or wrongfully he blames the pres ent farm administration for per mitting such a policy For 1960 Congress has theo retically put a limit on the amount a farmer may re ceive Regardless of how the new policy works out 550000 still sounds like a tremendous amount of money to the aver age farmer Nixon then must convince farmers that his farm program is specifically designed to help the little farmer and not the big one If he fails to do this his program will do him more harm than good come Election Time ONE FURTHER THING Nixon must always keep in mind is that farmers are becoming more and more concerned about the rise in operating costs of farming over the past dozen years While prices for crops have remained relatively t h e same over the years in some cases even the price of tractors labor feed and other things farmers must buyto stay on the farm have steadily risen The Nixon farm plan then must specifically show farmers how it will bridge the gap be tween low farm prices on the one hand and high farm operat ing costs on the other If it fails to do this Nixon will hurt Friday Lows Thursday night in the 20s Highs Friday in the 30s Iowa extreme and southeast Thursday night

night session in which Vice President Richard M Nixon helped kill one such increase The newest proposal by Sen A S Mike Monroney would provide million a year for four years in federal grants for both school construction and teach er salary aid The defeated plan by Sen Joseph S Clark would have provided 000000 a year indefinitely for those purposes The Senate held its longest session of the year

have broken this tie and put over the pro posal but did not do so pre sumably because he apposed it The Eisenhower admin istration is heavily against any broad system in this field of grants AP
