in rural life. They are on the air daily, or more often,
reporting and discussing farm legislation, Department of
Agriculture programs, and activities of local agricultural
agencies and farmers. Moreover, about 25 percent represent
stations owned by newspapers. The group plans to spend
a day with Secretary Brannan and other Department of
