NIIGHIORS HOME EDITION VOL 97 Associated Pita United Prwi International Fun t7o copy MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 195S Paper Coniliti of Two 41 Vote Out Controls on Corn Benson Plan Approved WASHINGTON wi Farmers voted in a referendum Tuesday to end 25yearoid government production controls on corn the nations largest single crop This was the first time since before World War II that growers of a major crop have turned thumbs down on federal restric tions as a measure for stabilizing production This politically significant ac tion had been urged by Secretary of Agriculture Benson as a part his controversial programs for reducing the governments role in agriculture RETURNS FROM 25 of tht 26 major corn states in which ballot ing was conducted gave votes to end federal restrictions and to retain them The other was delayed by adverse weather in tabulating its votes The results were expected to strengthen the Eisenhower ad ministrations hands in dealing with the new Democratcontrolled Congress on future farm legisla tion The voting came on the heels of recent congressional and state elections in which Republicans lost ground in farming areas The vote to abandon corn con trols may well encourage the ad ministration to sponsor plans to ease if not end restrictions on other crops such as wheat rice peanuts and tobacco THE NET EFFECT of the ref erendum was a grower accept ance of lower government price supports for the right to grow all the corn they wish For consumers the increased corn supplies and lower support prices could mean larger supplies and lower prices for try and dairy products Under the old program plant ing allotments were assigned growers in a designated commer cial area Those complying were eligible for price supports be tween 75 and 90 per cent of parity Under the new program there will be no allotments All corn will be eligible for supports at 9 per cent of the average marke price of corn during the thre preceding years but not less than 65 per cent of parity OFFICIALS estimate that sup ports next year will average be tween and a bushel Under the control program th average would have been between and Less than a fourth of the eligi ble growers voted in the referen dum Although controls had been in effect during recent years onl a small portion of the grower United ill Deal With East Germans Red Agents had complied with growers preferred to grow more even if that meant lower price and forfeiture of price supports NEWS FOR HOTRODDERS A fly ing skycar be ing tested for the Army by the Piasecki Aircraft

San Diego Dr Frank Lowe president of he Council of Churches called for a large attendance at a non seclarian Thanksgiving service in the cityowned Balboa Park as an expression of gratitude for being
