TRUE FARM RECORD
While in Congress I'worked and voted for the passage of the
FARM CREDIT ACT of 1933, including. PRODUCTION CREDIT
I voted for the BANKHEAD COTTON ACT. .
I worked and voted for the SOIL CONSERVATION ACT and
devoted a tremendous amount of time toward the development of a
program to prevent Soil Erosion, which is one of.the worst enemies
the farmers have. . . ,
m I voted and worked for the passage of the RURAL ELEC-
TRIFICATION ACT, generally known as the REA. I not only sup
ported its enactment but thereafter supported anuroDriations nec
essary for the development of the Rural Electrification Program
and have supuorted arid defended the Act since if was first nassed. "
I opposed reducing appropriations for REA in a speech on the floor
of the United States Senate on June 26, 1947 and have defended the
REA Program in many public speeches in North Carolina.
I voted for the FARM HOME ADMINISTRATION ACT
under which. more than 3,000 tenants in North Carolina have be
come farm owners. .-
4 1 supported legislation for a broad program of AGRICUI--TURAL
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH covering all phases of agricul
ture. . ,
.1 opposed reduction of appropriations for PMA, Soil Conser
vation, Agricultural Research. Rural Electrification Act, Farm'.
Home Administration, School lunches, and other items in a speech
on the floor of the United States Senate on June 26.1947. If the re- ,
ductions, as first proposed, had been made, the Farm Program
would have been seriously endangered.
" I offered an amendment to the Appropriations Bill ;in the
United States Senate on May 21, 1948, to restore money needed for
the agricultural conservation program administered by the PMA.
m In 1947 while in the tTnited States Senate. I worked with oth- "
ers m behalf of the potato farmers of Eastern North Carolina, ' i
- Roads are essential to farmers. As a member of Congress
I worked to secure as large appropriations as possible for roads. I
have supported every movement for good roads in North Carolina.
. for 30 years, and I voted for the $200,000,000 Bond Issue for Second-:
ary Roads m 1949.. I believe it is absolutely necessary !to continue
the Good Roads Program in North Carolina. J ; " , JM
About two years ago Congress created, a Division of Rural
' Telephones m the REA: I am heartily in favor of the program, and1
. I think that it should be encouraged in every way. - If I am nomi- "
nated and elected Governor, I shall use the influence of my office!
- to aid the farmers of North Carolina in securing telephones I.
am taking this opportunity to state my position on RURAL TELE
. PHONES because I do j)ot have available the list of those who have,
asked' for them and therefore cannot write to each of them indi-'
vidually. ' x .
-1 ari proud of my rerd cn agriculture and of my efforts in
behalf of farmers. Until recently my reccrd had never been at
tacked cither privately cr p:t::0y. It will stand up against any
truthful attack. , - '
