1 WASHINGTON ? (AP) ?
Agriculture Department offi
Icials predicted Tuesday that
millions of bushels ol frozen
and rotter, potatoes will b3
jumped under Government in
structions during the next
several weeks.
They will be part of tho
1946 crop surplus ol nearly
100.000,COO bushels.
Officials estimated the gov
ernment's final loss on the
surplus will amount to around
$90,000,"00.
Here is why the Government
I takes it on the cliin:
; Under war-time legislation, the
Agriculture Deportment underwrote
the ItMfi Clop ol potatoes n* well
las many other farm products. D
assured farm r-\ that tlrey would
get at least !'(> per cent of parity
?tiie theoretical price determined
i lo he equally i.ur to producers and
consumers.
! The potato trouble developed
when the crop turned out to be
i about 100.000.000 bushels larger
than the Department hoc: planned
I for and about that much larger
than estimated consumer requiie
mcnts.
! When this surplus became np
, pat . ut. potato prices tumbled. And
th>- Department was let; to carry
i out its legal obligation to assure
s at least, I") per cent of
I parity.
Held Prices t p
To <io tins, it look two steps to
remove the surplus from regular
market channels so the extra .sup
plies would not push prices below
the guaranteed level:
| First the Department bought
large quantities o! potatoes and re
1 .sold them t0 commercial firms?
| such as distillers?who otherwise
would have used some other com
modity.
| Hien the Department loaned
I money to other potato growers ?
tat the guaranteed flguri?and a*k
j ed them to store the crop just in

WASHINGTON? (AP) ?President
Truman Tuesday issued a proclama
tion terminating the period of hostili
lies of \\ orld War* Two as of noon.
The President told a suddenly sum
moned news conference his action
ended emergency Govermenl powers
immediately under some 20 laws.
He added that it also ended admin-!
istration powers under some T> other
laws at later dales, 'generally at the end
of six months from the dale of the pro
clamation.'
liUF And Truman
Oppose Tax Cuts
WASHINGTON?(A P)?Three more Republicans put
ibudget balancing ahead ol tax cutting Tuesday as top White
House advisers said President Truman will oppose any
general slash in taxes by the new Congress.
At the same time however these ?
Presidential intimates emphasized _ ? ?
Jthat the Administration will :ior
j fight tax law changes designed1
I either to add to the production "m
jcentive" or to wipe out any "in-!
I equalities" that may exist.
But none would say what rhanc-l
|es along these lines might he in j
[ prospect.
j The new "go slow on tax cutt
I ing" signs were hoisted on both
| sides of Capitol Hill.
I Senator Hawkes tR-NJ). n for - j
, m?'f president of the I'nited States
! Chamber of Commerce and one
time vice president of the National
Association of Manufacturer, de
clared that "nothing is more im
portant than balancing our
national budget" and big tax re
? duct ions must wait for that.
I "I talked to fkk> able men tit the
Inst three weeks." Hawkes told a
reporter, "without being asked, all
! volunteered the same stateme.*:
i'l hope to Ood you won't reduce
? taxes until you balance the bud
In the same vein. Rep. Hoffman
? R-Miehi to!d newsmen:
"Kit st, we've got to make both
ends meet, and pay something on
the debt if we ca:?."
I And Rep. Judd ?R-Minni chi

j "Make tax legislation the third
order of busirrrss. Kirt. reduce fed
eral expenditures; second, reduce
the debt don't just talk about it ?
make an actual payment: and
. thud, take up tax legislation."
j Hoffman said the uncertainties
of the yeai ahead should force
1 Congress to go low.
"What with all the portal pay
suits and perhaps ?some strikes
ahead, we don't k:*>w what we
are facing." the Michigan law
maker said.
