July 1942
America;7/25/1942, Vol. 67 Issue 16, p434
The author reflects on the decision of the U.S. House of Representatives to finally agree to go along with the U.S. Senate in allowing the Agriculture Department to sell government-owned surplus wheat for feeding purposes below parity price. He states that it ended the prolonged disagreement between the House and the Senate, with their concomitants of distrust and perplexity in time of war. He points out that the House, by its own action, has removed a considerable source of popular criticism.
