(Kelley, Iowa) Farmers don't feel Butz will help them. Corn surplus here dumped on ground; blame government for surplus. Last year due to blight, corn sold at $1.50 per bu.; this year 95 cents. Some farmers get $1.02 per bu. from government in price supports; want $1.15. [Edward KALTENHEUSER - says wants somebody who'll do something for us.] [Clyde WILSON - says Butz was adviser for Ezra T. Benson at time when corn prices very low.] [KALTENHEUSER - says important for us to raise corn for cntry.; remarks don't forget us now.] [WILSON - says thankful no blight came, but price went down with surplus corn.] Nixon and new Agriculture Secretary should raise guaranteed corn prices; will surprise no one since election next year
