In. sending to the House floor an bill to finance the de- partment for the year starting July 1, thu committee chopped from President Truman's budget estimates. The amount approved is less than the department had to spend this year. It includes in loan authorizations and in permanent ap- propriations. The cuts, if upheld by the House after debate next week, will boost to slightly more than the total' reductions made by the House In its -drive to lop ..from the President's budget for 1948.

The committee's major cuts were directed at the farmers' home ad- ministration, an offshoot of the old farm security the soil conservation service, the crop insurance program, and the school lunch program. Of the total recommended re- duction was accounted for by transfer from the Agriculture department to the treasury's general fund of "section 32" money here- tofore allotted for various' farm programs, including the school lunch project and conservation payments. These funds come from customs duties, 30 per cent of which had been earmarked for the Agricul- ture department.
