Lef Any State Sell
Grade A Milk Here,
Murray Asks Senators
Representative Murray, Republi
can, of Wisconsin today urged be
fore a Senate Agriculture sub
committee legalization of the sale
of -grade -A milk in Washington
from any State in the union.
He said milk is selling at from
$2.80 to $3.00 per 100 pounds
<46 quarts) in Wisconsin, but that
the price in some places in the
East is around $5. He also said
that if powdered skim milk were
used here, reconstituted into fluid
milk, it could be sold on the basis
of 6 to 7 cents a quart.
Mr. Murray testified before the
subcommittee headed by Senator
Gillette, Democrat, of Iowa which
is investigating the spread between
the amount the farmer receives
for his products and the amount
the consumer pays. Another wit
ness was Clinton H. Haskell, presi
dent of the Beatrice Foods Co.
of Chicago.
Mr. Murray told the committee
he had introduced a bill for the
sale of milk here from all States,
but that the District Committee
of the House had not considered
it because the committee was oc
cupied with hearings on the bill
“to get a 2-cent sales tax out of
the poor people here.”
He said the cry was raised that
milk from other places than the
Washington area would not be
“But.ihey find it sanitary in dry
weather when milk is short here,”
he said.
Mr. Murray said that because
of a Federal ruling milk can be
shipped from Wisconsin only if it
pays 50 to 60 cents 100 pounds

approve the veterans’ applications
for “certificates of eligibility.”
At the University of Denver,
student veterans were offered
loans by the school, but about *10
of them left the campus yesterday
because they “couldn't run the
gamble” that their programs would
be approved.
Variation in Policy.
At Minnesota, according to the
report, VA officials are requiring
veterans who never before were in
GI training to “justify” that their
education will lead to a vocation.
This is contrary to VA policy as
stated by top-level officials here.
Two students at the university’s
"general college” were turned
down yesterday on the ground
their training would not be “voca
Another university graduate
there, who wanted t* continue
study toward a master’s degree,
was told he could not qualify
“because he could get a job with
his bachelor’s degree,” Dr. Brown
was told.
Veterans affected by the new
policy are those who failed to
apply before September 12 to VA
for the certificates making them1
eligible for training. VA, how
ever, failed to announce the Sep-,
tember 12 deadline until after it;
had passed.
While VA has had restrictions
on “avocational ‘training'’ since
July. 1948, the hew. regulation
assumes that a vast number of
other courses may be “avoca- j
tional” to some veterans.
Sees Spirit of Bill Changed.
Dr. Brown said the new policies
"completely change the whole
spirit of the GI Bill.”
“The VA administrative policy,
which up to this point has been
to encourage students to enroll in
legitimate courses, is now impos
ing an increasing number of hur
dles,” he declared.
Of primary interest to .edu
cators, Dr. Brown said, is the fact
that formerly a veteran who said
he wanted to get a college degree
was considered to have satisfied
GI Bill requirements that he have
an “objective” in his training.
“This (new regulation) com
pletely reverses the former policy
that the naming of a degree was
an objective,” he said.
This issue—veterans’ “justifica
tion of employment as a require
ment for education and training”
—will be taken up at a September
30 meeting between VA officials
and the council’s Committee on
Relationships of Higher Educa
tion to the Federal Government,
Dr. Brown said.
The committee is headed by Dr.

nonpolitical organization, estab
lished in 183$, devoted to planning
by Americans in agriculture, busi
ness, labor and the professions.”
In one of the reports, titled
“Fiscal Policy in the Near Fu
ture,” the economists deplored the
$5,000,000,000 income tax cut put
into effect last year by the Re
publican-controlled 80th Congress.
“Past decisions on taxes and
commitments on expenditures
have resulted in a current deficit
in the cash budget,” the group
“We regard those decisions as
unfortunate, particularly the de
cision in 1948 to reduce taxes; it
would have been the course of
sound policy to-have revenues ex
ceeding or, at the least, equaling
expenditures at the present level
of business activity.”
Opposed to Tax Increase.
But the economists added that
it would be unwise to increase
taxes now.
“Such action,” they said, “might
be in itself unduly deflationary.
There is a possibility that the step
might soon have to be reversed 4o
counter a business turndown.”
Their statement on taxes came
on the heels of a comment by Vice
President Barkley that "a sub
stantial reduction in taxes” might
be made in the next year or two.
Mr. Barkley, addressing a drug
gists convention in New York yes
terday said, however, that he is in
no position to predict just when
corporation and individual income
taxes can be cut.
One Great Merit Seen.
The economists’ views on budget
balancing were outlined in a re
port entitled “Federal Expendi
ture and Revenue Policy for Eco
nomic Stability.”
“The traditional goal of fiscal
policy was to secure a balanced
budget in every single year,” the
report says. “But that objective;
has now proved impracticable and
besides has serious disadvantages
in principle.”
The economists said that while
annual budget balancing is “both
difficult in practice and unsound
in principle,” it does have “one
great merit.” They added:
‘It provides a yardstick by which
legislators and the people can
scrutinize each activity of govern
ment, testing it both for efficiency
of operation and for its worth
whileness in terms of cost. * • •
“If dropping the principle of
annual budget balancing were to
mean dropping all restraints to
unwise and inefficient expendi
ture, grave damage would be done
to our economic and political
