Affairs Pointed By GREGORY JENSEN LONDON (UPI) - Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and the rest of Britain currently is occupied with international affairs as epitomized by President Eisenhower's visit. But in the background looms the closer -to -home question of when the next general elections will be held, a question that has become something of a national guessing game. It has been decades,since the game was played with' anything like the present suspense. Cliff- hanging tension has been building up for almost a solid year. By today, everyone was about ready to burst with it This is the way the game works: British governments are elecl- td for five-year terms. But they •re not required to serve * the whole period. They can call a general election at any time. Naturally, those in power call their elections at the time most advantageous to them. If they've been in office only three years but see a dead sure win at the polls, they'll pop a hew election and win a new five-year lease on No. JO Downing Street. If there's any doubt, they'll postpone the poll until the omens set lair. Macmillan has been "it." in this Httle game since late last summer. It was about then that the possibility of a quick general election began to be bruited about. And it was right then, almost a year ago, that the opposition Labor Party began to feel the •nispenseful squeeze of this election guessing game. The opposition's dilemma is tasy to understand. Macmillan will pick the moment when he thinks he holds all the cards. After his formal announcement of the election date, labor will have only a few scant weeks to organize its election" campaign and do its electioneering. Prepare in Advance Therefore, it has to prepare in advance./ Plans must be drawn' up, speakers mobilized, campaign material designed and prepared, posters printed and space for them rented — and all this without a definite date to go by. If the opposition organizes too well around a specific date, it may march the public right up to the polls and then discover the election isn't for -another six months. If it organizes not well enough, the lack of preparation can cos! it the election. Right now, the best educated guess is that polling will come Oct. 22. Most observers have settled on that date as the most likely. ft Only Macmillan can act. Under the rules of Britain's election guessing game, he aione knows the answer to the question all Britain has been asking for a full year: When will the election be? Marine News SAULTE STE. MARIE.

Drought Hitting Ohio Corn Crops In Central Regions By JOHN HALL COLUMBUS (UPI)-Ohio farmers, particularly those in the central and southeastern sections of the stale, may suffer drastic corn crop losses because of the current drought, an agriculture expert predicted today. Edgar P. Hempy, state director of the Federal Crop Insurance Corp., estimated that the corn yield in many areas, "with the possible exception of 'Northern and Northeastern Ohio will probably be reduced from a normal 100 bushels an acre to 50 bushels because of the two-week drought." The dry spell may also produce chaffy (loose-kerneled) type of corn resulting in a reduced weight. Since the 'U. S. Department of Agriculture grades the corn by its weight, farmers would receive a greatly reduced market price, Hempy said. He predicted No. 3 grade corn would drop from $1 to $.50 per bushel. In addition, the lack of rainfall may stunt the kernel growth of the corn, he said. "There just hasn't been enough water for the corn to develop adequately," the director said. "Consequently, a good portion of the ears will be bare, .I've already seen indications of from one and a half to two inches of the ear without a kernel on it.' Hardest, hit by the drought are farmers in Franklin, Athens, Washington and Williams counties, according to Hempy's calculations. Hempy pointed to a six square mile area in northwestern Fairfield and southeastern Franklin counties as the worst he has scon this summer. "Two weeks ago when I went through there . the corn w a s green," he said. "Now it's so dried up I'd guess they won't get more than fifty bushels per acre out of it." Hempy said he had also seen evidence of chaffy corn in Lewis and Paulding counties and in sections southeast of Lancaster, There is also a slight: possibility the drought may cause a short, button-like kernel to develop, Hempy said.
