The'buying of more'medical- care or themselves and their families ras another' spending increase dis- overed.; Among a .special group of ural families used for'the survey, more than two and one-half times s. much money went .for. doctor ills and medicine last year .'than t did:In. 1940.' ,-'• • •• Before the war it -was estimate d that the farmer spent about: six er cent of his total^income'-.-for ouse furnishings. Last'yea'r among he test group It-was discovered that 4 per cent of the income "went for ome furnishings.' There-was .a drop in'total U: S. arm income during 1947 and • a urther .small slump is predicted or this year and next. -But the ercentage of.' income spent for othlng, medical care, and house urnishings has constantly increased nd is expected to continue to In-ease. ' . The. conclusion drawn from tills lenomcna .by the experts is. that he present farm 1 presperity has 'ven the'farmer-his. first taste of .ore comfortable'living, and that more he ' tries: it, the better e likes it. The trend toward farms buying better'.living for them- Ives will continue, they predict, s long as a -reasonably good level •farm prosperity is maintained. In spite of the changes in fam- f spending in recent years among rmers, however, the purchasing 'of od still takes first place . among ie;goods farmers buy; for family ie."Ifc accounts for about one-third .one-quarter of farm family..ex- :nse. For families on-the poorer rms it Is even-more. As farm fam-i .Hies have grown more prosperous it has been .noted that' they choose to buy more of their food,, rather than, depend on the products that they raise. . •'-..-'•.

ANNAPOLIS— (IP). — Montgomery county will elect. a seven-member council'to go with its "new 'charter form of government' January 6, and It'll be legal. : .' . . .- .': The Court of .Appeals has denied the plea of four county commissioners that the. election be. postponed until 1950. If the:. commissioners wish to remain jr. "office, the court ruled, they must run and 1 be elected to membership on.the new council. The decision, handed down after a two-hour hearing and 30 miautes of consultation, upheld the Montgomery County • Circuit- Court,- which ast. Monday dismissed an "Injunction suit filed by the commissioners. Their attorney, F, Barnard Welsh, contended 1 they were elected to four- year terms in 1945 and'it would be unconstitutional to deprive them of office' 'after they served only, two years. '_ ' ' " Charter Attorney, Frederick P, JOG argued the commissioners would lave a "naked title -to an. empty office." ' .... Montgomery is the'first^Maryland •ounty to make use'.'of a 33-year-old amendment to the state constitution under which the charter form oi government may be' adopted.
