8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Fridav, October 13. 1961 Expand FHA Loan Program Many loan applications, which in the past were rejected because of small sbe of farm, off farm work and other reasons, now can be approved. At a meeting of FHA personnel at Ctianute this week the new regulations, effective Oct. 15. were discussed and clarified, Paul Archer, County supervisor, said today. While loan limits on farms in this area were raised from $40,000 to $00.000. if now is possible to purchase small farms, also, and to rent or work part time. Income from the purchased farm must be substantial. Ap praisal bases are being increased so that loans can be a larger per cent of the selling price. Operating loans can be made to part time farmers. After Oct. 15 it will be possible to loan to build new houses or to repair existing ones within corporate limits of towns under 2.500 population, so long as Federal Housing Administration is not active there. The same will be true on lots or small tracts in the open country if well located and the applicant is otherwise eligible. Small housing loans may be made for $2,500 or less without real esta'e mortgages if income is adequate, HDU News FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS Met with Mrs. C. E. Todd. Results of election of officers were E.

VOYAGE TO AMAZING ATOMIC ADVENTURE...ON LAND... IN OUTER SPACE... AND UNDER THE SEA 2a By DON BROWN When considering the fertilizer program for the next several months, crops needing attention are wheat, barley, rye, alfalfa, brome grass and other cool season grasses. Proper attenteion to the fertility requirements of these crops will enable more efficient crop production. Winter cereals respond remarkably to application of nitrogen and phosphate. The 1961 wheat crop was generally nitrogen deficient. This indicates that Franklin County farmers did not make maximum use of nitrogen for most efficient cereal production. Also, many 1961 wheat fields matured rather late. This favored the development of rust infection. As a result, many wheat yields were red u c e d. Prop e r application of phosphate at p anting time should hasten maturity and aid in preventing severe yield reductions by rust infection. The 1961 turkey crop is breaking all records for turkey production. All indications point to a market of not more than 20 to 21 cents a pound for hens and 18 to 19 cents a pound for toms. M. E. Jackson, extension poultry specialist at K-State, says this weakening of the turkey market is a result of the tremendous increase in numbers. The 1961 crop will be 26 per cent higher for the United States and 42 per cent higher for Kansas. From all indications, only the most efficient operator can come close to staying in business with 18 to 20 cent turkeys. Figuring in all the hidden costs. . . such as interest and depreciation. ... it costs 22 to 23 cents a pound to produce turkeys. There'll be plenty of feed this year. Crop prospects on a per acre basis look good. There remains the final stretch of the har vesting season, so a little uncertainty still exists. Leonard Schru ben, agricultral economist at K- State, reports that overall feed grain production is down from the record 1960 harvest. Acreage of corn and grain sorghums was reduced as a result of the Feed Grain Program. A smaller acreage was planted to corn than in any of the last 80 years. About one-fourth fewer acres were planted to sorghums for 1961 harvest than a year ago. Records supplies of feed grains from past crops are on hand at the beginning of this feeding season. These supplies greatly offset the expected lower production this year. Schruben adds that protein supplement supplies appear to be ade- are Richmond News The Harvey Morrows htvt Elliot'i moved to Mrs. Kate house in Princeton. John Scott Powelson has purchased the A. L.

Your last chance as this feature, will be withdrawn from service following this run. The story of "On The Beach" is told in clear, uncompromising terms. Nuclear war has just destroyed the Northern Hemisphere. An American submarine, cruising in the Pacific, puts in at Australia, which continent has not yet felt the effects of radiation, but it too is slated for extinction. We then see how life in Melbourne is affected by this ghastly legacy. Step-by-step we are taken through the emotional heights of hope and depths of despair. There are thrills provided by a wild, reckless auto race in the last desperate sports contest on earth. And there is suspense of the most tingling type as the submarine again searches the northern lands for some sign of life only to come upon what to this reviewer will remain the most terrifying scene in movie history—a barren deserted lifeless citv of San Francisco.
