"Since I filed, the response from
the people of Nebraska has been
very encouraging and I now feel
that I have a good chance of win

he is advocating deals with three
major issues agriculture, federal
power and natural gas.
He is in favor of unlimited agri
cultural production at a stable
price. This will be accomplished
through new consumption programs
both at home and abroad, he said.
These programs include an ex

lotments to supplement old age
assistance, new uses for farm pro
ducts, improved food distribution
and use of our food stocks by low
income persons in our nation.
