Montpelier, Vt. The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:00 o'clock a. m., in the House of Represetatives room, State Capitol Building, Senator Allen J. Ellender (chairman) presiding.

Present: Senators Ellender, Holland, and Aiken.
Also present: Representative Prouty (Vermont).
The CHAIRMAN. The committee will please come to order.
The committee is very glad to be here this morning.

I have before me a list of witnesses numbering a little over 60, and I want to give assurance that this committee will make every

effort to hear all of you.

As I indicated last night to some of you, I wish that the witnesses present would listen to the testimony and try to omit as much duplication as possible as we go along. In that way I am sure that we will be able to hear everybody. The list that I have before me was sent out of Washington by one of our secretaries and that was made up from a list of witnesses who desired to be heard, who wrote in to our committee. And as they wrote in, their names were placed on the list. I am using that list but I wish to say that in order to try to get as many of the witnesses who represent particular groups to testify, I may have to skip around a little bit to have them in order. However, if I do overlook some of you at first, I will come back to the list.

We have people from Maine interested in potato growing, which is an important segment of their economy. Then we have the dairy people. And we have the small grain and poultry people.

We will make every effort, as I said, to give all of those who represent those various commodities an opportunity to have their say.

I was informed by the clerk of the committee that by calling the head of, let us say, the dairy group, that 1 will speak for 2 or 3 or 4 who have given in their names. And if I am correct in that, that will, of course, eliminate the testimony of quite a few witnesses who are on this list, but my suggestion is that the witnesses in that group make themselves available, so that in the event that this committee desires to ask questions, for that purpose.

Another thing I wish to state is this, do not be guided by the tone of the questions that the members of the committee ask you. We do not want to be judged by the questions we ask as to our views on any particular subject. If a witness takes the negative or the affirmative on the question, we will just take the reverse of what he does in order to bring out all the facts. That is the only reason why that is being done.
