Senator Umstead Opposes
' In Appropriations For Agricultural Program
Protesting House-approved slashes
in agricultural appropriations, Sena
tor William B. Urastead has urged
the Senate to restore the funds and
present action "which will seriously
cripple and may well destroy the ef
forts of a generation in building a
sound, helpful and sensible agricul
tural program." s ? , < .
In a speech delivered on the Sen
ate floor last week, Umstead led a
Democratic attack on Republican ef
forts to reduce agricultural appro
priations for 1948 by $341,000,000.
The Senate appropriations committee
was scheduled to consider the meas
ure this week.
Urn stead tokl the Senate that he
was raised on a tobacco farm and
had first-hand knowledge of the
hardships and problems of farm life.
"I was a farmer when we had no real
farm program," he said. "I know by
experience and observation what
these things have meant to the rural
people of -North Carolina and to the
nation. It would be a tragedy to
this generation and an utter disre
gard for the generations to come for
this program to be destroyed." <
While Senator Clyde R. Hoey and
other Democratic senators listened in
agreement, Umstead attacked the
following reductions in agricultural
appropriations made by the Republi
