HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON AGRICULTURE,

Indianapolis, Ind. The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:30 a. m., Hon. Clifford R. Hope (chairman) presiding.

Present: Representatives Hope (presiding), Harvey, Dague, Lovre, Belcher, McIntire, Harrison, Poage, Abernethy, Albert, and Polk.

STATEMENT OF HON. RALPH HARVEY, A REPRESENTATIVE IN

CONGRESS FROM THE STATE OF INDIANA

Mr. HARVEY. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. It is certainly a great privilege for the House Committee on Agriculture to have this group of Indiana farmers and farmers' wives here with us today. I am Congressman Harvey, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, from Indiana. We have with us this morning quite a delegation of the committee.

I am going to introduce them to you first of all so that you will know who they are, and the State from which they come. I believe most of them have nameplates before them so that you can positively identify them for future reference.

I do want to introduce first of all one of our Indiana delegates who is also majority leader, our own Hoosier, Charlie Halleck. We are very happy that you could be with us here today, Charlie. I will introduce our members now, and I will skip our chairman, if I may, for the present.

First, W. R. Poage, of Texas; Jim Polk, of Ohio; Bob Harrison, of Nebraska ; Carl Albert, from Oklahoma; Cliff McIntire, from Maine; Tom Abernethy, from Mississippi; Page Belcher, from Oklahoma: Harold Lovre, from South Dakota.

Now I would like to introduce the chairman, Cliff Hope, from Kansas.

STATEMENT OF HON. CLIFFORD R. HOPE, A REPRESENTATIVE IN

CONGRESS FROM THE STATE OF KANSAS

The CHAIRMAN. Ralph, Charlie, and distinguished visitors and friends: My remarks are going to be very brief because this committee is here to listen, rather than to talk, but I think it may be apropos if I should just briefly outline the things the committee had in mind in holding this series of hearings.
