nation's agricultural prosperity,
Secretary of Agriculture Benson

this matter because of the finan

A plan of agricultural re

states should assume the respon

Support From Butler
The proposed reorganization
plan set up by Secretary Ben
son is being supported by Sen.
Hugh Butler of Nebraska.
Butler said that he did not
believe that Benson would do
anything to hurt the Soil Con

thing, this reorganization plan
would help the farmers. Dwight
Griswold, junior Nebraska sen
ator, had "no comment" on Ben
