I evidence that the conduct of the negroes had disturbed the peace. Douglas repeated this viewpoint in an opinion today. Five major cases were involved in the rulings. Chicago a the nations 1,800,000 wheat Farmers vote tuesday on whether they want tighter wheat controls to curb production. This is the 12th referendum but the first in which Farmers who grow wheat on 15 acres or less will vote. Voting was restricted before to growers of wheat on More than 15 acres. The Small farm group outnumbers the Large acreage Farmers about 1,200,000 to 600,000. Thus the future of the Kennedy administrations attempt to control increased wheat production and rising subsidy costs rests with Farmers who vote for the first time on controls. If two thirds of the voters approve the new controls will go into effect next year. If the program is rejected acreage allotments will continue and Price supports will be available at about half of parity or around $1.25 a Bushel. There will be no marketing quotas or Cash penalties for excess production. The new program would Cut the 1964 wheat acreage 10 per cent from 55 million acres to 49.5 million acres. Wheat would be divided into two Price categories. Eighty per cent of the 1964 crop would go for Domestic food use and exports and would be supported at $2 a Bushel file rest would go for livestock feed and other non food uses and would be supported at $1.30 a Bushel. A Farmer who retired from wheat a portion of his old allotment would be paid by the government. Any Farmers who violated the rules could be fined and jailed. A new York a Secretary of agriculture Orville Freeman expressed Confidence today that Farmers will approve tuesday his proposal to maintain next years wheat crop at about 1.1 billion , with a High Price support. He said he believed the two thirds would approve the proposal despite a substantial uncertainty arising from the fact that for the first time 800,000 Small acreage wheat Farmers will vote.
