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
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
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

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
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

—that the Federal farm program

had phoned or wired that they'd
be happy to attend.
A publicity man for the show

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
He asked the public to stay
away, however, “because of the

Canadian Fire Sets Off
Shells on Army Range
By the Associoted Presi
ST. THERESE. 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
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.
