Prosecutor in Grait Trial Threatened Prospects for Crops Appear Brighter Washington, . May 10 (/P)—Crop production prospects have brightened during past thrco weeks to raise government hopes that this year's harvest of food and fiber crops may sot a record after all. A month ago prospects were not good because unfavorable weather had retarded spring planting. But a new crop survey made by the agriculture department yesterday said conditions have Improved greatly and crops are now normal or advanced In most areas of the country. • • • A WHEAT crop which may bo tho second or third largest of record was said to be Indicated. The winter wheat portion of tho crop was forecast at 986 million bushels. An average spring wboat crop would give a total combined crop of about 1,293,000,000 bushels. Only In 1947 and 1948 wore larger wheat crops harvested. But thoro is a posBibillty the spring wheat crop may bo considerably larger than normal. In that event. It would be possible for total wheat production to exceed tho second largest, 1,313,000,000 produ- <ied in 1048. « * * BV bONPARISON, total wheat l^roduotion^ last year was only 987 million bushels. Tho government had set a 19S2 goal of 1,165,000.000. Officials said the big wheat harvest would in all likeUhood be ao- contpanled by a sharp reduction In grower prices at harvest time. The decline would bo limited by the government's price support program. Tho department aald it appears likely farmers will plant a larger acreage to com than had been indicated by a planting lurVey In March. The government has appealed for more com to meet feed demands of an expanding meat animal industry.

New York. May 10 The prosecutor In the graft trial of five Now York policemen said today he received a telephone threat—only hours after tho brother of the chief prosecution witness was beaten up. Assistant corporation council Victor J. Hcrwlta said a man telephoned his home this morning and declared: "You son of a. . • . you better lay off." " Herwltz said Jackie Gross, 24, was assaulted on a Manhattan street last night by two men as a warning to his brother, bookie Harry Gross, to stop testifying about paying graft to New York policemen. * * m IIKRWITZ QUOTED young Gross as saying one gravel-voiced assailant told him: "This will teach your brother to keep his trap shut. Toll him not to testify at any more cop's trials." Gross startled the departmental trial by declaring he paid graft to tho city's three highest police officials, since retired, to protect his 20 million dollar a year bookmak- Ing empire. He also named 100 lower-ranking police as having been on his payroll, • • « IIERWITZ SAID tho throat against him and the assault on young Gross were "all of a piece." The reprisal moves brought Immediate reminders of the slaying of Arnold Schuster, 24, Brooklyn pants salesman, after ho gave police Information that led to the arrest of bank robber Willie (The Actor) Sutton. Young Gross, not seriously injured, was placed under a 24-hour police guard immediately after ho reported the beating. Herwitz said the anonymous telephoned throat and tho beating would not halt' the city Investigation Into police graft nor frighten Harry Gross Into sllenoo. • * * "I'M WARNING the man who called mo this morning and told me to 'lay off that I'm not laying off," Herwitz told newsmen. "He may as well stop trying to intlmldato me because I'm going through vrtth this to the end." Herwitz sold the man telephoned his homo at about 8:45 a. m. asked for him by name, voiced his throat and then hung up. The prosecutor said Harry Gross had been notified at city prison of his brother's beating but that his determination to continue his testimony in a bid for a reduction of a 12-ycar bookmaking sentence was. unshaken. "Harry la still on the ball." Her- wUs said. Harry Gross' wife and two children have been under police protection since he started to talk but the brother had not been.
