Anderson Farm Plan
Backed by Brannan With Qualifications •y the Associated Press Secretary of Agriculture Bran nan gave qualified support to day to a compromise farm price support program worked out for next year by Senator Anderson, Democrat, of New Mexico. Mr. Brannan told the Senate Agriculture Committee that the .Anderson compromise would pro vide somewhat higher Govern ment price support levels than a flexible price plan voted by Con gress last year. Actual operating of the plan voted in 1948 will not begin until next year. Public hearing on farm legis lation were reported today at the insistence of the committee's chairman. Senator Elmer Thomas. Senator Thomas quickly pointed out that the supports for wheat, cotton, corn and other products under the Anderson compromise would be lower than those now existing. Thomas has said he favors con tinuing high level wartime farm price supports now in operation for another year. The House already has voted to do this. Provides Higher Support. Senator Anderson, who was President Truman’s guest on a week-end cruise, had hoped to get a favorable vote on his compro mise bill at a closed session of the committee. But Senator Thomas insisted on testimony with Mr. Brannan as the first witness. Farm and labor leaders also were invited to give their views. He said the reopened hearings will “not be long and drawn out” because “all we have been doing for several years is holding hear ings.” Senator Brannan began by not ing that the supports under the Anderson compromise would be higher than those under the flex ible price support plan due to go into operation next year. He said this is a distinct advantage and might be “at least a partial re payment” for all the discussion about farm programs. But he added that the Anderson bill fails to order strong price supports for livestock and similar products. He assured Senators his depart ment will do its best to make any farm plan passed by Congress suc ceed. Not Yet Introduced. The bill in dispute actually has not even been introduced in the Senate. Senator Anderson, who preceded Mr. Brannan as Secretary of Agri culture, developed his compromise with support of Republican Sena tors after a series of public hear ings at which the major farm or ganizations and Secretary Bran nan testified. , Senator Thomas sent telegrams! to five major farm organizations1 as well as William Green of the AFL, Philip Murray of the CIO and John L. Lewis of the Miners’ union to testify on the compromise bill. Senator Young of North Dakota, one of the Republican Senators listed by Senator Anderson as supporting the compromise, ac cused Democrats of playing poli tics with farm price-supports. All participants in the legis lative squabble agree on one thing —that the Federal farm program will be a major issue in next year’s congressional campaign as they were in .the elections last November.

Radio Invitation To V/edding a, Bit Too Successful By th« Associated Press NEW YORK, Aug. 22.—An altar bound couple are finding out it's all right to invite people to your wedding well in advance—but not over the radio. The bridegroom-to-be, West Point Cadet Ralph Stephenson of; Jena, La., and his fiance, June; McFarland of Yonkers, N. Y., won $4,600 on ABC’s “Break the Bank” show Friday. In a burst of enthusiasm, they invited their radio audience of millions to attend the wedding during the Military Academy’s “June Week” next year when Cadet Stephenson is to be grad uated. Here’s the reaction: ABC said last night 527 persons had phoned or wired that they'd be happy to attend. A publicity man for the show claimed 4,600 acceptances had been received. He said maybe a million people would turn up. Lt. Col. William Proctor, West Point’s publicity head, said officers were “gratified” at the public re sponse. He asked the public to stay away, however, “because of the physical impossibility of accommo dating such a large gathering.” Funeral Rites Tomorrow For Joseph W.

Stone Age Culture Found Near Ararat, Russians Say By the Associated Press LONDON, Aug. 22.—The Rus sians, who get nervous when foreigners head for Biblical Mount Arabat just across the border in Turkey, made known last night one of their scientists has been digging close to it. Tass, the official Soviet news agency, in a dispatch from Ere van in Soviet Armenia, said the scientist has unearthed evidence stone age men lived near Ararat. This presumably was long before Noah’s Ark is supposed to have landed on the mountain after the Flood. A party of Americans recently received permission of the Turkish Government to search Mount Ara rat for possible traces of the Ark. The Soviet press and radio has charged the Americans are rep resentatives of United States mili tary intelligence trying to spy on the neighboring U. S. S. R.

Quebec, Aug. 22.—Fragments from exploding anti-aircraft shells today menaced army fire fighters combatting a brush fire on the 10-square mile army proving ground at St. Mau rice En Haut. The shells were buried duds, ammunition that had failed to ex plode during firing tests. The troops—more than 250—worked behind protective steel screens. No injuries have been reported. The brush fire, believed started Saturday night by careless berry pickers, swept into the proving range of the No. 34 depot of the Canadian Ordnance Corps early yesterday. To escape the exploding shells villagers in St. Therese, St. Lin, Pont David and Terrebonne Coun ty. evacuated their homes and took refuge in fields behind rocks. The army attempted to isolate the blaze by digging ditches around the burning areas. But shifting winds soon scattered the flames and army officials were forced to call for more soldiers from Montreal. Bulldozers were also rushed to the scene. Highway traffic between St. Donat and Montreal was re-routed by police. They said the flying fragments were coming too close to the highway “for comfort.” Thick smoke covered an area of more than 20 miles.
