Seven others have cleared Congress. The Senate today placed final Congressional approval on interior appropriations total ling $194,587,859. This included $84,528,038 for Western reclama tion projects. Another large appropriation bill, calling for $225,000,000 to finance Army construction programs here and abroad, was approved by the House Armed Services committee. It is separate from the War de partment’s main supply bill which has not been passed. Of the total, the Army would spend $100,000,000 for building in this country and $125,000,000 over seas. Committee clerks said the farm bill compromise would provide $980,000,000 for agricultural pur poses during 'his fiscal, year com pared with last year’s expendi tures of $1,275,000,000. President Truman had asked $1,188,500,000. Brooks Satisfied *1 think we have preserved ev ery essential element of a well balanced agricultural program,'’ Brooks said after the agreement. “It will encourage high production essential today for the demands for food upon the United States and at the same time preserve the fertility of our soil.” In addition to continuance of the main farm program into 1948, Brooks reported these agreements of tfce Senate - House conference ’ group: 1. A $265,000,000 fund to make benefit payments and meet other costs of the farm program on 1947 crops. The Presdent had asked $301,000,000 but the House reduced this to $165,000,000. The Senate then had tried to increase it to $295,000,000. Of the final total $24, 000,000 may be used for expenses of the farmer committeemen who plan and check the programs. 2. A $65,000,000 federal fund for school lunches with the provision that pennies paid by students able to buy a lunch may be counted as part of the local contribution. Local agencies must match the federal funds doiiar for dollar. The House originally had barred use of funds paid by students for this matching. Heavier Share Brooks said the conferees put states and local agencies, includ ing school boards, on notice that they must “carry a heavier share of school lunch costs” from now on. 3. A $15,000,000 loan fund to al low veterans and tenants to be come farm land owners. The Sen ate had voted $20 000,000 and the House nothing. Brooks said the funds can not be used to buy “farm lands at inflated prices.” 4. Acceptance of a House pro vision that will require meat pack er* to pay costs of federal meat Inspection which in the past has been chiefly by government funds. The House provided a $5,000,000 revolving fund which packers are to replace by fees. The Senate at first struck out this requirement and voted a $11,140,000 fund but Senate conferees yielded or this. 5. Acceptance of a Senate pro vision for continuation of the fed eral crop insurance program on an experimental basis with a $5, 000 000 fund to meet costs. The House had voted only $1,000,000 to liquidate the present program.

At the close July corn was $2.18 1-2—2.18 1-4, up 1—1 1-4 cents over yesterday’s close. The corn crap, already retarded seriously by the floods and evces sive spring rains, needs sunny days and hot nights if it is to mature before fall frosts. The temperature here dropped early today to 40.3 degrees, the lowest for July m the Weather bureau’s 100-year history. Tem peratures generally in the Mid west were about If. ciegrees be ' low seasonal normals. The lowest recorded was at Land O Lakes, Wis., where the mercury dipped to 33 degrees, ere degree above freezing. W. M. Percy, Chicago forecast er, said late today that tempera tures were beginning to rise slow ly in Western Iowa, and the lows of last night would not be equalled tonight. He said a warm air trough was moving across Iowa and would bring some relief to corn-growing areas. Growing Stops But, the Weather bureau at In dianapolis said Indiana crops had “virtually stopped growing” be cause of unseasonably low tem peratures. i The cold snap extended as far South as Missouri and Southern Ohio, hitting a low of 5i degrees at Cincinnati. Temperatures were expected to rise somewhat tomor row but fall again Thursday. A Chicago grain firm spokes man said corn already had been delayed two weeks and that more delay would bring a greater chance of “soft” moisture contain ing grain. He said it also would increase the cnance of small ears through frost damage before the plants reach full development. Ordinarily, corn is considered “safe” from frost by Sept. 20 but the unseasonable temperatures have advanced the probable “safe” date to Oct. 10 or 15, he said. Further low temperatures would set the date still farther in to the fall, he said. REGULATION “W” (Continued From Page One) months, is required lor furniture and soft surface floor coverings. The bill approved by the Senate would extend the controls to Dec ember 31, with the down payment required to be no more than 20 per cent, and the installments to be limited to two years. In a report preceding the House vote, a majority of the House Banking committee said Regula tion W "bears most heavily on persons of limited income and in many cases undoubtedly effective ly excludes them from these mar kets.” On the other hand, the commit tee said ‘‘it gives to the man of financial mean*, in effect, priori ty of rights to buy whatever he wants and whenever he is willing to pay the price.” Ammendments Downed Opponents of the bill sided with Mr. Truman’s argument that elimination of the controls would contribute to inflation dangers. The House defeated an amend ment by Rep. Monroney <D-Okla) to continue the controls to next year and another by Rep. Buffett (R-Neb) to keep controls on auto mobile credit purchases. Rep. Crawford (R-Mich) declar ed “to remove these controls at this time is dangerous. Prices are perfectly ridiculous. This bill will help the ’big boys’ and the fi nance companies, but will hurt the little businessman.” Rep. Sabath (D-Iil) said “they1 told us when they killed OPA that prices would not go up, but look what happened.” Rep. Monroney said the bill “adds mere fire to inflation.” Aft er the House vote, he told report ers that there was little if any prospect that the Senate could prevail on the House to accept its views. Rep. Brown (D-Ga) described as “bunk” the argument that the inhtallment controls would have anything to do with inflation. He said “it’.? time to get rid of regi mentation.” Banking Chairman Wolcott (R-: Mich) asked the House, if the con trols are necessary to prevent in flation, why the administration had removed controls on all but a few consumer items. Rep. Spence (D-Ky) said "it seems incongruous that a man who has established good credit should have it regulated from Washington.’* The Weather Weather bureau report of temperature and rainfall for the 24 houra ending 8 P. m., in the principal cotton growing areas and elsewhere: f‘®t,on High Low Prerip.

PACKERS BLAMED (Continued From Page One) minded as to the operations of legitimate trade unions and other progressive organizations, but has not taken any action to investi gate the cause for the meat price gouge which is now going on. "A thorough investigation of the control of our national meat sup ply by a few packing companies and their banks is the proper function of our government at this time.” The Institute’s statement said, “in comparing markups, a fact casually ignored is that last May the government was paying sub sidies at the rate of $750,000,000 yearly, which subsidies had to be paid by the consumers in the form of taxes. The subsidies ranged trom eight to 11 cents a pound for popular cuts of beef at the retail level. Black Market “Moreover, the figures, with ap parent deliberateness, overlooked the fact that last May there was an extensive black market in beef and black market prices were in part reflected in the price actual ly paid for cattle. “Ignored also is the fact that since last May there have been substantial wage increases in the meat packing industry and costs of materials have advanced sharp ly."

GROUPS PROTEST (Continued From Page One) cerns only the cicg-leg between Wilmington and Florence. Weather Conditions The group’s resolution set forth the cause of the protest as the .fact that Myrtle Beach has year round flying weather while Flor ence’s weather conditions are bad during some portions of the year. It also pointed out that the pro posed route would increase air distance 35 miles above the direct route by Myrtle Beach. As a result of the action yester day the Air Coordinating commit tee will be requested by the coast al airway committee to reconsider the facts from the civilian stand point and to prevail on officials to review the situation.

Gone is the cot ton industry, the lumber mills and the naval stores. A variety of pro duce isn't grown any longer by the farmers.

Jylv a —(U.R)—The fighting in indonesa was officially called to the atten tion of the United Nations today when the Netherlands government notified UN headquarters it had undertaken “police measure of a strictly limited character” against Indonesian Republicans.
