As of Oct. 1, the department says, hourly cash wages for farm work averaged $2.22 per hour nationally, compared with $1.98 on the same date last year and $1.82 on Oct. 1,1972. Workers who were paid a .straight salary and furnished a house averaged $428 per month, compared with $395. on Oct. 1 lat year. If board and room were provided, cash wages in addition averaged $339 per month for each hired worker, compared with $308 a year ago, the report said. WASHINGTON (AP) - Concern is growing over the equality of 1974 soybean production because of stress from drought and early frosts on the supply of seed for 1975 planting. The Agriculture Department said Tuesday farmers need to line up 1975 soybean seed now. In some areas, the department said, early frosts stopped soybean growth before the beans had time to mature fully. "This may lower the germination (of seed) to an unacceptable level, depending on how mature the soybeans were when the frost hit," the department said. WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) — John Harris Jones, the. Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, said Tuesday night that "America cannot afford another big-time spender like Dale Bumpers in the Senate. Jones, a Pine Bluff banker and lawyer, will oppose Bumpers, a Democrat, in the Nov. 5 general election. Jones spoke of ever-increasing prices and utility rates as he addressed the West Memphis Jaycees. Jones said Bumpers had increased taxes during his two terms in the governor's office and that the governor had caused an 80 per cent increase in state spending during the past five years. FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) While Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt, R-Ark., said Tuesday he would put national defense ahead of other matters in the controversy over military aid to Turkey. Although he voted against continued aid to Turkey, Hammerschmidt said he would be willing to listen to further debate on the question. Meanwhile, in Washington Tuesday, a vote to override President Ford's veto of the measure that cut off Turkish aid last week failed in the House 223-135. That was just 16 votes short of the two-thirds margin needed. Hammerschmidt was recorded as not voting. PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — A hearing on the appeal by dismissed Pine Bluff fireman Grady May is to resume in Jefferson County Circuit Court Oct. 23. May was dismissed by the city's Civil Service Commission June 10. Judge Gene Bairn told lawyers for both sides during a day-long hearing Tuesday to return on that date for cross-examination of rebuttal witnesses. Two Fire Department officials — Assistant Chief Clyde Rush and Capt. Dudley Taylor — said morale in the department dropped significantly after May wrote letters to the Pine Bluff Commercial critical of Fire Chief W. R. "Ray" Jacks. NEW YORK (AP) — Trans World Airlines and Pan American World Airways are expected to agree formally Wednesday to split up many of their international routes and thus reduce costly competition between them, a TWA spokesman said Tuesday night. "The executives of both airlines will meet tomorrow to deal with the issue definitively," the spokesman said. Both TWA and Pan Am spokesmen declined to go into details, but the New York Times said in its Wednesday editions that the plan was to have been signed Tuesday. The Times said the agreement would eliminate head-to- head competition on thousands of miles of air routes between the United States and Europe and Asia. WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield, calling President Ford's economic program only a partial answer, has urged a larger government role in the economy. "To 'Whip Inflation Now' — WtN, as the slogan goes — will x "• -..--... • - ' . - : ' Mansfield urges larger government role in economy require action, action that encompasses something more and different than a 10-point program which begins by imposing greater tax burdens on families with annual incomes of $15,000; more than increased acreage allotments for peanuts, cbtlort and rice production," Mansfield said Tuesday. ; "Words and slogans Will no longer satisfy the nation," he said in a nationally broadcast Democratic response to Ford's economic program. He called for fuel rationing, tough controls on wages, prices and profits, allocation of credit, a broad systefft of tyiftg Workers' wages to living costs and a tax break for the pt>0r. Mansfield said the Ford administration's heavy reliance on tight money and reduced federal spending to help the economy is only a partial answer. "Sacrifices are needed across the board if the nation's economy is to be restored," the Wednesday, October 16, 1974 Democratic leader saidV "1ft my judgment, the people of this nation alre prepared to make those sacrifices," Maury John AMES, iowa (AP) -~ Mattfy John, 55, Iowa State University basketball coach until late last year and National Coach of the Year in 1969, died Tuesday.
