Shirley Chandler Percsi signing i today of the new feed Grain Hill with a declaration that the out-1 come of tuesday s referendum among wheat growers is ill be a the key to maintaining the family farm system of agriculture a at a noon hour ceremony in a White House conference room. Kennedy used about a dozen pens to sign the new legislation which the administration believes will help promote a a a yes vote in the nationwide referendum on a new and stiffer control program for wheat the Hill he signed would con j Tiniuc with sonic changes a pres ent voluntary feed grains program it would however permit Farmers to grow some wheat for feed on their feed grains acreage and tend to Lessen some of the Impact of the stiffer wheat program. Kennedy said that a tomorrow is the Day of derision a and he said the situation boils Down to a Clear Choice Between Farmers Vot-1 ing yes and maintaining the Price of wheat at about $2 a Bushel or voting no and seeing wheat drop to a predicted $1 to a Hushel. A i Hope Farmers will vote a yes i in their own interests a the Percsi j Dent said. An estimated of the nation s wheat Farmers Are scheduled to vote in tuesdays re Fern j Durn. Ohio wheat Farmers out number their compatriots in All other states of the nation. Perhaps As Many As 150.000 ballots May he cast in the Buckeye state. And Ohio never has voted in favor of controls. This is the 12th referendum since 1941. When the first such i vote was taken. But it is tile first time that far mers who grow wheat on 15 acres or less will vote. Heretofore the voting was restricted to growers of wheat on More than 15 acres if two thirds of the voters approve the new controls they will go into effect next year of the program is rejected acreage allotments will continue and Prier supports will be available at about one half of parity or around $125 a Bushel. There will he no marketing quotas or Cash penal j ties for excess production. The new program would Cut the 1964 wheat acreage to per cent from 55 million acres to 49 5 million acres. Wheat would he divided into two Price categories. Eighty per cent of the 1904 crop would go for Domestic food use and exports and would he supported at $2 a Bushel. The remainder would go for livestock feed and other non food uses and would he supported at is 30 a Bushel. \ Farmer who retired from wheat production a portion of his old allotment would be paid by the government. Any Farmers who violated the regulations could be fined and jailed the government has tried for More than 25 years to control wheat production with grow my and marketing regulations. But with improved farming methods and greater mechanization production has increased steadily the government has now 13 billion bushels of wheat in storage or under Price support Loans representing a year s simply for Domestic anti Export needs the government s wheat control pro Cit k Rockstroh or. ?2.

Ind was damaged when it statute for All District personnel skidded and Slid backwards into a and other persons interested in w Ashington a an intensive reassessment of the political situation will he the order of the Day for new York gov. Nelson a. Rockefeller when he returns from his honeymoon. What his private pollsters Tell him about the political effect of his marriage to Divorcee Margar 1 Etta filler Murphy could have a direct bearing on whether the governor plunges into an Active drive for the 1964 Republican presiden j tial nomination or merely coasts along awaiting developments. Of the indications Are that his marriage has built up resistance to his nomination the governor can be expected to tread water for a while until a new canvass i can be made this fall. If relatively Clear sailing is in Prospect he May step up his campaigning. Rockefeller is a great believer in polls. He also is a Man who plays his politics close to his Vest Seldom confiding his plans in Advance even to party allies. For example he told sen. Kenneth b. I Keating. R-n.y., Only 20 minutes before the ceremony that he was going to he married. Although Rockefeller has made All of the familiar motions of a candidate for the nomination his remarriage after being divorced last year by his wife of 31 years has injected a new element of doubt about his intentions. Many Republican catholics might not accept a divorced and remarried Man As a gof candidate. In the protestant areas of the Middle West where Rockefeller has been trying to build up his image As a regular Republican divorce and remarriage Are generally frowned upon. But in the big cities of the Industrial states where he would be expected to have his greatest strength such matrimonial ventures Are not As Likely to cause raised eyebrows. Moreover the resentment of women voters against the governors actions might be balanced by the vivacity and attractiveness of the new mrs. Rockefeller in campaigning with her husband. Most presidential candidates w ant their wives along w Hen they go vote gathering. Those without wives such As the divorced Adlai e. Stevenson in 1952 and 1956, seem to operate at a disadvantage.

Reports from major wheat producing areas indicate the balloting will be close. Approval by at least two thirds of those voting is required to put the new program into effect for 1964, agriculture department official estimate that More than million persons Are eligible to vote. The outcome of the referendum on the new wheat plan advanced by the Kennedy administration almost certainly will have great influence on future government Farni Aid policies and on the personal and political Fortune of farm leaders in and out of Congress. Never before in the More than Loo such farm re Ferenda held since 1939 has there been such widespread interest and so much at stake. Adding significance to the referendum is president Kennedy s statement that the outcome will show whether or not Farmers want strict controls. Hence farm policies advocated by tile president and by Orville l. Freeman i battling Secretary of agriculture Are at stake. Congressional leaders have said the results of the wheat vote will influence consideration of future farm legislation. A defeat for the wheat plan As a consequence could affect the future of Freeman As administration farm Cabinet member. Likewise president Charles b. Shuman and his big american farm Bureau federation have Laid their influence and prestige on the Lino in making a fight against the wheat proposal. They Are against it because they base said it would give the Secretary of agriculture too much control Over farming. They contend too that its approval would open the door to quotas on beef cattle hogs. Milk. Poultry and other farm products now free of them. The Grange the National Farmers Union and the National Farmers organization also have staked their prestige on the referendum by joining the administration in support of the wheat plan. They like the administration deny the proposal would deprive Farmer of their Freedom. They argue the proposal is needed to prevent overproduction they say could plunge agriculture into a new Era of depressed prices and staggering surpluses. Name mrs.
