ke eature of the administrations arm program which Presiden Eisenhower sent to Congress Mon day It would provide for overal payments both in cash and kind otaling about one billion dollars annually to farmers In return jarticipating farmers would agree o cut corn wheat cotton rice and other plantings by 40 to 4 million acres Benson cautioned that the in ducement offered to farmers to participate in the soil bank plan would have to be generous Before farmers would comply he said they would have to feel that their net incomes would be at least as high as if they planted their al lotted acres Twin Features He also said broad participation would be necessary to insure the programs success Benson said the soil bank with its twin features of an acre age reserve and a conservation reserve would accomplish many things He said it would increase farm income reduce surplus stocks cut excess production re duce storage costs ease apprehen sion among Americas friends abroad conserve soil water and

Eisenhower asked Congress Thurs day to provide billion dollars in federal grants over the next five years to help conquer the nations critical school shortage In a special message the Presi dent also asked authority for fed eral purchase of up to 750 million dollars worth of local school bonds school districts cannot sell them in private markets at rea sonable interest 20 mil lion dollars for grants to the states for school planning In summary this would mean a federal outlay over five years of some with 750 mil Dewel Not to Be Candidate for Governor Legislators Face New Pressures Duane E Dewel publisher of the Algona Advance announced in h is newspape Thursday that despite the urgini of many friends he is not a can didate for either lieutenant gov ernor or governor It is a great honor to be men tioned for either wrot Dewel It also has the effect o turning the head a bit and some what like being taken on th mountain top and being shown th promised land Franldy I cannot see mysel in either post I have been for tunate in being in a positior where I can see into sanctorums of both these postsan I find there is pressure that is un relenting As majority leader o the senate last session I felt tha pressure of unreasonableness al ways Discussed Problems Sen Dewel discussed some o the problems facing the state in the years ahead and some of the groups that are bringing pressure to bear upon legislators Two great groups are at each others throats most of the time and the issue is so involved with moral questions ihat a positive position one way or other is im possible and jften made so by h e unreason ableness of ers of said the senator These are the wets and DEWEL he drys I dont fit in either camp think the present state store sys tem is working well yet I can see he difficulties the river are faced with by liquorbythedrink only a few yards away I dont want an open saloon in my town and I really think few Deople do I can go along with the key clubs which are actually cooperative in nature Yet how ar we can go on those is a qucs ion that is Reapportionment Cited One of the serious problems of the day is t h a t of reapportion ment of the districts in the Iowa louse and Senate according to Dewel The American system of gov ernment is based on representa ion of the people by those who make the he wrote Such wide divergence as now exists in owa is just not right nor fair honest The wide gap in equal epresentation is glaring in the ase of heavily populated coun ies in which cities are SEN ROBERT KERR GOP Attacks Kerrs Remark WASHINGTON White House Thursday said it made ab solutely no request that a San Francisco military hospital pre pare a suite for President Eisen howers possible use during the Republican convention in August Presidential P re s s Secretary James C Hagerty angrily denied a statement to that effect Wednesday by Sen Robert S Kerr Kenhad said that Republicans are so alarmed about their own ow political reserve they plan to bring Ike to the GOP convention even if he has to stay in Letter man General Hospital which re portedly is preparing a suite for Reporters asked Hagerty if there lad been any White House request or a suite Absolutely none at Hager y replied emphatically There never has been and that informa tion has been relayed to the com manding general of the Republicans countered Kerrs re marks about the Presidents health with such words as unmitigated despicable and smear pol ion to be returned through even tual payment of the bonds The states would be required to match the federal grants for con struction The matching however would DC under a formula whereby the vealthiest states put up for each of federal money while the poorer states would get for each they put out Eisenhower said a cardinal prin ciple of his program is that fed eral grants must not reduce the incentive for state and local efforts rather should stimulate an increase in such With this Eisenhower said in his message we can lay the basis for r better education in America in the years ahead In this way we keep faith with our The Presidentmade no mention of a question already stirring Con gress whether federal education aid should go only to states ad hering to the Supreme Courts rul ing barring race segregation in public schools One reason Congress got no where in the last session on school aid was a split over this question Eisenhowers plan for needier states to get the biggest share of federal money collides with a bill by Rep Kelley DPa which would supply in federal grants over a fouryear period This bill already approved by the House Education Committee is due for early action on the House floor Kelley Plan The Kelley plan would provide money to the states on the basis of the number of school age chil dren in each In presenting his program Ei senhower cautioned that it should be considered only as an emer gency measure designed to help states and local communities over come the nations critical class room shortage within five Once this shortage is overcome the federal grant program can and must Eisenhower said The states and localities should go forward without federal unds

connection with the Presidents message esti mated that school construction needs over the next five years will be about classrooms This summary also said that state and ocal governmentswill build classrooms this year at a cost of 2V billion dollars The President set forth a pic ure of a nation with school rooms already jammed and the shortage growing sharply Today hundreds of thousands of

rests with the states and the local com And he said federal action which infringes upon this principle is alien to our Nevertheless he remarked that the nations history has ohown the fed eral government can and should help localities solve problems of nationwide scope Clearly this is the kind of situation we face to day in considering the school class room In the program there are a num ber of devices the administration figures will level out the educa tional situation throughout the country Chief among them are provisions to give the biggest share of the money to the states that need it most and give sort of a bonus to states which up to now have done the best job of coping with the school problem We must recognize that some states have more financial re sources than Elsenhower said We must recognize that a weakness in education anywhere is a weakness in the nation as a whole Federal appropriations will most quickly accomplish the most ood if a relatively large
