NEW PLAN URGED
FOR AGRICULTURE Milk Producers' Federatior Seeks Economic Equality Basis Restoration. By the Associated Press. SYRACUSE, Ν. Y., November 16.— a. permanent program designed "to reatore agriculture to a basis of eco nomic equality "with, industry" was outlined and urged on the Federal Government Wednesday by the Na tional Co-operative Milk Producers' Federation at the closing session of Its eighteenth annual convention. The program, offered as a "new plan for agriculture," includes the following major points which the or ganization will seek to have embodied In legislation at the coming session of Congress: 1. Protection and expansion of the eo-operatives. 2. Further lowering of the gold content of the dollar to raise com modity prices to the 1921-29 pur chasing and debt-paying level. Brandt Plan Urged. 3. Adoption of the Brandt plan for price and production control—a plan involving utilization of the equaliza tion fee principle and operation of a surplus pool. 4. A system of marketing agree ments and licenses correlated with the Brandt plan. The resolutions avoided open criti cism of the administration of the A. A. A. program, although calling for a number of amendments to the existing statutes, designed to protect the co-operatives from official hos tility. This attitude was in the face of a number of vigorous attacks launched by speakers from the floor of the convention. In advancing its permanent pro gram for agriculture, the federation asserted that the agricultural adjust ment act was merely a temporary measure designed to serve for the du ration of the emergency period. The program calls for continuation of the Farm Credit Administration as a separate agency, concentrating on financing, by co-operative means, the permanent needs of agriculture; temporary credit needs to be dele gated to some other agency, and farmer control over the lending agen cies of the administration to be pro gressively increased. A. A. A. Action Indorsed. "We indorse the action of the A. A. A. and the Legislatures of certain of the States." the resolutions state, "in their efforts, through the licensing of dealers and through milk control boards, to eliminate unsound, uncon trolled, destructive competition in the fluid milk markets." Passage of milk-control legislation is advocated for all States, as uniform as local conditions will permit, de vised to correlate State and A. A. A. activity. Nathan P. Hull of Lansing. Mich., president of the Michigan Milk Pro ducers' Association, was re-eiected to a second term as president of the federation. The board of directors re-elected all officers. Policeman Is Mayor.
