Washington. D. C.
You can write it down that Secre- ,
tary of Agriculture Claude W;<?kard
is going to be very chary about us- |

farm lobby voted him in the price

still sputtering over his unauthorized I
endorsement of this lobby scheme j
at a crucial moment in the senate

he is liable to be slapped down even

was in bad and he tried to square !
himself. i Q HH
But for the administration, the
backdown was too late. The dam
age had been done, for the amend- ;
ment was in the bill and the lobby s
pals on the joint committee were in ;
a powerful position to stand pat.
In this final hitter fight, two Ala

retention of the gravy-train provi
sion. They were Son. John H. Bank
head and Rep. Henry B. Steagall of
Alabama, and Rep. Jesse P. Wolcott
As the amendment originated in
the senate, under the rules, it was
necessary for the house conferees

man of the house group, publicly
makes a great show of being a red
hot Administrationite. But behind
closed doors of the committee room
he adamantly refused to heed Roose
velt's pleas for elimination of the
Eu^kcu u> n'uicoii, who fought the
vital war bill from the start, and
with Bankhead running interference
in the senate group, Steagall forced
the retention of the provision.
Note: The administration's fight
was made by Sen. Prentiss Brown,
Michigan Democrat, and Sen. John
Danaher, Connecticut Republican.
Wickard's fronting for the faim
lobby in the price control bill isn't
the only row he's had on this
score with inner administration
The papers are full of stories
about a big crop expansion program
this year to meet the food needs of
U. S. war allies. Frequent press re
leases issue from the busy publicity
stall of the agriculture department
about grandiose plans.
The real inside is that Wickard
didn't get busy on these plans until
he was practically ordered to do so
by Vice President Henry Wallace as
head of the Economic Warfare
Wallace sent Wickard two sharp
letters demanding prompt action to
expand crop production and only
then did Wickard bestir himself.
Certain farm elements are against
crop expansion, on the ground that
scarcity makes for better prices.
Working through politically minded
Triple A officials, who have a lot of
influence with Wickard, the anti-ex
panders kept him cn the fence until
Wallace jarred him off.
Note: Secretly, the AAA politicos
also had a lot to do with Wickard's
endorsement of the gravy-train
amendment in the price bill. The
AAAers are jealous of Price Admin
istrator Leon Henderson's authority,
want to elbow their way into the
war set-up as big shots.

F.D.R. AXES LEWIS
The inside reason why John L.
Lewis was not named a member of
the three-man C.I.O. peace commit
tee was because President Roose
velt personally blocked it.
When he and C.I.O. President Phil
Murray discussed the counter plan
that scuttled Lewis' blitz scheme,
Roosevelt advised that the new
A.F.L. and C.I.O. peace committees
be limited to three members each.
That would avoid turning the joint
committee into a "mass meeting,"
he explained, and also make it eas
ier to keep hostile Lewis out of the
"If you have too large a commit
tee, Phil," the President added with
a smile, "you may appoint Lewis.''
"I guess you're right, Mr. Presi
dent," laughed Murray.
Note: Lewis intimates say he
would not have accepted appoint
ment to the committee if it had been
offered hir.i. I
