Kline declared in a statement before the Senate Agriculture Committee April 13. However, Mr. Kline's generally favorable testimony was qualified by a number of changes suggested by the Farm Bureau. Discussing the proposal in the bill for reorganization of USDA services, Mr. Kline suggested that the educational responsibilities assigned to the Extension Service should be clearly defined to eliminate duplications in educational functions. The Office of Foreign Agricultural Relations should, he said, remain a separate unit of the Department of Agriculture. The bill proposed placing it under the projected "Economic and Social Science Administration." Another suggestion relative to reorganization expressed preference for the term "County Agricultura...

4 National Land Policy Bill Introduced in House by Hope The farmer's need for long-term conservation policy has been brought before Congress again with the introduction in the House of a National Land Policy Act bv Representative Hope (R., Kan.). The measure, H. R. 6054, is a far-reaching one designed to centralize and coordinate governmental conservation activities within a new agency—the Agricultural Resources Administration — in the Department of Agriculture. The proposed new bureau would consist of an agricultural land service, a forest service, and a fish ?.nd wildlife service. It would absorb the Soil Conservation Service, the Forest Service, and the conservation programs of Production and Marketing Administration. Outright transfer of the Interior Department's Fish and Wildlife Service, and agricultural functions of the Bureaus of Land Management and Reclamation is also provided for. Under the bill, conservation education would be handled by the Extension Service, but appropr...

6 Senate Approves $300 Million Aid For Education A $300,000,000-a-year bill for federal aid to education, largely in rural areas, has passed the Senate. Designed to improve America's lowered educational opportunities, the bill, S. 472, provides for federal grants to bring state expenditures for primary and secondary education up to a minimum of $50 per child each year. It would supplement state funds with a minimum federal contribution of $5 for each pupil between s#and5 # and 17. States which qualify by spending at least 2.5 per cent of their income on education might receive as much as $29 per child. Senator Taft (R., Ohio), author of the bill, declares that about two million children between 6 and 17 are attending no school, and that the same number are being taught by unqualified instructors. AFBF favors the objectives of this bill. This Year's Crops May Equal 1947 USD A Believes Prospects are bright for a foodcrop output this year equal to the 1947 record level, provided growin...
