CENTS A ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY JUNE 12 1934 CONSISTS OF TV SECTION ONE O SECTIONS NO 211 lowans in Washington Real Blow to Corn Hog Program Seen in Measure By CON McGCIBE ASHINGTON June 12 til What may be a real blow to the cornhog reduc tion program slipped through the house alicost unnoticed last weez tuaC body passed an amendment t o the agricultural adjustment act exempting 2000 pounds of each farmers hogs from the proces sing tax The former ex emption was 300 pounds The new provision means that every farmer may kill and dress for sale exclusive of his own family needs one ton of pork It was introduced by the minor ity leader Suell of New York who carried all the republican house votes with him along with the dem ocrats of the south and many from other sections In fact only 18 representatives voted against it among them Gil lette Biermann and Wearin of Iowa Popular in East The popularity of the measure with eastern and southern legisla tors arises from the fact that the hog raising is done in those sections on a small scale Few of theni raise more than 2000 pounds of hogs a year and hence they will be completely ex empt from the processing tax the proceeds of which are needed to fi nance the cornhog benefit pay ments Would Be Blow But to the big hog raisers of the middlewest such a change would be a severe blow leaving them to pay virtually all of the load A 2000 pound exemption Iqr an Iowa bog raiser is only a smalL part when he erg for the market The measure has caused some qualms in the agricultural adjust ment administration but it is ex tremely improbable that the mea sure will receive much considera tion in the senate And if it should be put up to President Roosevelt he undoubtedly would veto it since it threatens the entire financial ar rangements made for the agricul tural adjustment act DEFENDS STEEL BOARD SCHEME Johnson Says No Replies to Request for Suggestions Have Come in WASHINGTON June 12
