Victory for GOP The Senate Friday adopted a compromise plan for corn to settle an angry farm bill debate The row was over provisions some senators said would give corn farmers an advantage over producers of other feed grain The argument was set off by an amendment proposed by Sen Hickenlooper RIowa to use 56 million acres as the base figure under which corn farmers would have to cut their plantings to qualify for payments from the ad ministrations soil bank plan A 51 million acre national allot ment for corn finally was written into the bill by voice vote after it was offered by Sen Humphrey DMinn and accepted by Hick enlooper Base Figure The farm bill as originally drafted proposd that the base al lotment be 43 million acres Hick enlooper argued that actual plant ings have totaled 56 million acres First Since 36 WASHINGTON days perfect turnout of sena tors to vote on farm price sup ports was the first time since Jan 27 1936 that every mem ber has shown up for a rollcall

been stripped of rigid price supports for cotton corn and peanuts This action shoved through Thursday 5441 was a major victory for President Ei senhower Spokesmen for the flexible sup port system which the administra tion seeks have argued that the Democratic proposal for a return to higher support levels of the Truman administration would de feat the purposes of the proposed soil bank plan This would pro vide federal payments to farmers for taking land out of the produc tion of crops that are in surplus Benson Congratulated At the White House meanwhile Murray Snyder assistant press secretary said President Eisen hower Friday congratulated Sec retary of Agriculture Benson on the Senates rejection of the pro posal to restore rigid supports Snyder told newsmen Eisen hower extended
