Page 2 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Saturday, Oct. 10,1964 TRIBUNE FARM & HOME PA6E-- COUNTY NEWS AND • FARM • HOME • CITY On The Farm Front for overseas relief programs. By BERNARD BRENNER United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The National Agricultural Advisory Commission has recommended' adoption of a national policy under which part of the current farm surplus would be designated a national security reserve. The commission did not spell out precise levels of the stocks to be held in the proposed reserve. But Charles R. Sayre of Greenwood, Miss., acting chairman, indicated the group agreed in general terms with reserve figures mentioned earlier by Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman. — Sayre said, however, that the commission suggested to Freeman that the earlier figures be studied again by government and private experts before any • formal proposals are made. Freeman had indicated that for national safely purposes, stocks should not drop below about 45 million tons of feed •grains. 630 million bushels of wheat, and G.2 million bales of cotton. -Sayre told newsmen the report endorsing "a national reserve policy was approved at a two-day advisory commission meeting which ended in Washington -Wednesday. , Under the commission proposal, the national reserve stocks would be insulated from normal commercial markets. - This would bo done by restrictions on sale of the stocks below some fixed price floor. An Agriculture Department spokesman said any such plan would probably require advance approval by Congress. The advisory group also ' urged the Agriculture Depart" ment to study the possible need '•for modernizing a number of ..laws which regulate marketing of farm products, especially , the Federal Packers and Stock-yards Act. In another move, the commission decided to set up a subcommittee to study the farm labor supply. This move was touched off primarily by the fact that the Mexican farm labor import program is due to expire this year. WASHINGTON (UPI) — Administration farm officials are not rushing into endorsement of a proposal for a' sharp expansion in government purchases of surplus dairy products. The proposal came last weekend from James G. Patton, president of the National Farmers ! Union. Patton asked President^ Johnson to consider a huge program of government buying of butter, cheese, and non-fat milk ; powder. These purchases would be in addition to those already being made under the dairy price support program. Patton said the extra purchases would strengthen prices for farmers. He said the dairy products would be given away, mainly in overseas relief programs. An administration .source reports today that the proposal is He says there's a possibility that government dairy purchases could be increased, but that a really major expansion of dairy purchases appears doubtful at this time. Government stocks of surplus dairy products currently are down sharply from last year's levels. At the end of September, 1963, the Agriculture Department had 414 million pounds of non-fat dry milk in stock. At the end of September this year, the stock 1 was down to 75 million. One reason for this decline has been an increase in commercial exports of dairy products. And one result of this development has been- a drop In donations of non-fat dry milk The i Agriculture Department's wheat sales rose sharply last week for the second week in a row, are running almost 70 per cent ahead of last season's pace. Since- July 1 of this year, the department has sold nearly 131 million bushels of wheat for. domestic and export use. In the same period one year ago, sales amounted to about 79 million L..shels.

M. Clary announced. The decrease results from the hot, dry weather which began in this area during the latter part of • July, Clary said. The 95->deg;i-ee itemperaturejs killed pollen in many fields, and lack of moisture decreased the yield in most fields. Earlier planted and earlier maturing varities appear to be producing the higher yields to date, he added. Tipton County's average corn yield for 1963 was 103.1 bushels per acre, the highest average yield in Indiana last year, flie estimated yield for Tipton County at this date is about 86 tush- els per acre. The county's average yield for soybeans last year was 31.7 bushels per acre, again the highest county average for that crop in the state. This year's estimated yield for soybeans is about 27 bushels per acre. 5-acre corn yield testing is getting : underway here, Clary noted. Neighborhood committees are checking yields and, .top yielding fields will be rechecked by the County Extension office. • Anyone who is a member of the Indiana Crop Development Association is eligible for a yield check. All'yield tests are to be completed, by November 1. Official yields are then calculated by the agronomy department of Purdue University.

C-G In Review By DOC QUIGG United Press International'. NEW YORK (UPI)—Yes, Va., there is a Howard Hughes. There must be: That was his; satellite up there this a.m. bringing-us the opening ceremonies of the Olympics live from Tokyo. That is, one of his companies, Hughes Aircraft, made the Syncom satellite for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Howard Robard Hughes,- a legend. Tall and lankji. A genius built around a Texas drawl. Seven or eight years ago he dropped out of — well, nobody who has been looking for him has had any success. It 's like this. Many years ago, he had become so unreachable that his uncle, 'the late playwright Rupert Hughes, said: "I can get through to the Almighty by dropping to my knees, but I don't know how to get in touch with Howard." For those of you too young to remember, this man began flying at age 14 and soon thereafter he was doing wonders. Thirty-five years ago, he wrote, directed, and produced "Hell 's Angels," a tremendous movie, starring Jean Harlow. Set Speed Record Twenty-nine years and one month ago, he set the world land-speed record while piloting a plane he, of course, designed. Twenty-seven years ago, he set a transcontinental speed record. Twenty-six years ago, he set a staggering" round-the-world record (3 days, 19 hours, 14 minutes). He also discovered Jane Russell and her accoutrements. He dated Billie Dove, Katherine Hepburn, Yvonne de- Carlo, Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Ginger Rogers, Cyd Charisse. He once refused to answer a question flung at him by a congressional committee, and got away with it. ' The satellite. Syncom is hanging like a fixed star over, the Pacific just southeast of' the Gilbert Islands — 22,300 miles up and traveling with-the earth, at the proper speed to keep it aloft and make it hover oyer one spot. Reception Very Clear 1 1 Hughes is president of Hughes Aircraft Co. Could be he had nothing to do with Syncom, but I'd like to think he did. Also, I wish Japan were not so far ahead of us—in time. The opening was held this afternoon in Tokyo, which made the live cast take place from' 1" to .3 o'clock this morning, New York time. If you can't understand that, forget it^-and keep your set down low. • > It was telecast in this coun- (Continued on page 6) USDA Predicts Smaller Yield On Corn Crops WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Agriculture Department today estimated the 1964 corn crop at 3,564,368,000 bushels to be harvested for grain. This compared with a September estimate of 3,640,267,000 bushels and last year's bumper crop of 4,081,791,000 bushels. The five-year average production of corn was 3,670,215,000 bushels. The all - .wheat crop was estimated at 1,285,962,000 bushels, made up of 1,018,929,000 bushels of winter wheat and 267,033,000 bushels of spring wheat. The winter wheat estimate was the same as last month's. The crop was virtually all harvested at that time. The current all - wheat crop estimate compares with 1,137,641,000 bushels last year and a five-year average of 1,252,847 000 bushels. Corn yield was estimated at 61' bushels an acre, compared with 67.3 bushels in 1963. The all-wheat yield was esti mated at 26.2 bushels an acre, compared with 25.1 bushels last year. Winter wheat yield was 27.2 bushels and spring wheat 'yield was estimated at 23.1 bushels. The spring wheat yield in 1963 was 21.9 bushels an acre. '• The soybean crop was estimated at G98,502,000 bushels This compared with last month's estimate of 704,375,000 bushels and the record-high 1963 crops of 701,465,000 bushels.

S. 31 and Sharpsvilte Read ' D7lal 963-539 By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)—Idealr ly,. a newspaper reporter is aji objective observer. He' relates the facts without getting per-, sonally involved in the story he is covering. There are limes, however, when we newsmen are swept up in the tide of events, ' so that we become a part of the , problem rather than apart from it.' This happened to me the other day when I covered the National Conference on Auto Salvage sponsored by the Institute of Scrap Iron & Steel. I find that I can't get it off of my mind. The knowledge that automobiles are being junked at the rale of 5 million a year and that nobody has' any clear idea of wha.t to do with them has totally destroyed my sense of well-being. The junked car situation seems to be falling into the pattern set by beer cans. And we all know what that can lead to. It can lead to people driving by your house and throwing beer,cans on your front lawn. Now they have started getting rid of old cars that way. Last year, in New York City alone, more than 13,000 cars were abandoned on the streets. In Philadelphia, it takes 11 tow trucks to keep the streets free of derelict vehicles. Since whoever is in charge seems unable to control the junked car population explosion, it is up to us, as individual citizens, to take the matter into our own hands. To get the ball rolling,'I have several suggestions. First of all, there should be an educational campaign. Something like: "Don't be a litterbug. Take your old car to the junkyard." Secondly, there should be. a campaign to improve the image of junkyards. For some strange reason, most people regard junkyards as eyesores. They simply' are not found in the better neighborhoods. If ; we are to*lick this problem, . we must reshape- the "think pattern" so that junkyards will be acceptable. Even desirable. But bigger and better junk. yards are at best a stopgap I measure. Genuine rehabilitation requires that ways be found to make practical use of discarded autos. In some coastal areas, they have been used, to build fishing reers. Which is a step forward, but doesn't offer-too much relief for land-locked areas. . , I believe the solution could be found in a nationwide contest. .Complete the following sentence {in-25 words or lessor "I would like to have a junked car of I my own' because..." ' The Southwest United Press International DALLAS (UPI)—Memo from Albuquerque: If the prognosticators know what they're talking about, massive BernallHo County will back President Lyndon B. Johnson Nov. 3. Ditto the outback area of New Mexico. Memo from' Dallas: Sen. Barry M. Goldwater is making hay in Texas, but the Johnson grass roots (no pun intended) have too strong a hold. Memo from Oklahoma City: LB J all the way. •Memo ; from Phoenix: Purely on observation, it probably is Goldwater running ahead in his home sfa'te but the Democrats could close the gap. ' In short, there appears to be one horse race and three Democratic shoo-ins for the tops of the tickets in the Southwest. • Bernalillo County is Albuquerque, which has 110,000 registered voters in a state of one I million residents. The outback (area is "little Texas"—eastern !Ne\v Mexico with five popula- Ition centers. A month ago, east- jern New Mexico was Goldwater •country. But Johnson is emerging as the big vote puller. Has Racial Issues In Texas, Goldwater has I stumped hard and will continue to do so. This undoubtedly is winning him votes. Johnson does have a Texas problem. For instance, precincts 132 and 83 of the Poly-Glen Garden area of southeast Fort Worth, Negroes have moved into white neighborhoods. This, said the Fort Worth Press, is "causing more than a little concern among white voters." Any white "b a c k 1 a s h,". though, appears to have, failed I thus' far to counter Johnson's ! popularity in his home state. I The Sooners of Oklahoma ! would sooner have Johnson. I This was so when the campaign started. It remains more so, ap- Here are a couple of hints: wrecked cars make dandy duck blinds and bird baths. Butdon't let me influence your-answer.

ASK YOUR DEALER FOR TIPTON (COUNTY [ ffARMBURIAU; parently, as it goes into the climactic weeks. Whether Johnson can pull the state Democratic ticket with him is something else again. The big race in Oklahoma is between Republican Bud Wilkinson and Democrat Fred Harris for the U.S. Senate. ^Harris is a popular state legislator from Lawton. Wilkinson is a byword in every Oklahoma home' because of his - background as coach of the mighty O-U football team. Polls Favor Both Arizona, of course; is Gold water's home state. Each faction keeps coming up • with polls showing its man ahead in the presidential race. It has been a' tight, fight. Goldwater seems, on the basis of the campaign now, to be ahead. Democrats are hoping Johnson will visit the state to campaign. Gov. Paul Fannin, a Goldwater man running' for Goldwater's Senate seat and'Rich­ ard Kleindienst,. a Goldwaterite seeing Fannin's empty chair, are powerful Republicans themselves. Fannin- especially is a hot vote-getter. But Roy Elson, with the prestige of Democratic Sen. Carl Hayden behind him^ is undoubtedly running a strong race against Fannin. Sam Goddard, Democratic contender for governor, is carrying on a' far -more effective campaign than he did in losing to fannin in, the gubernatorial race two years ago. Depends On Ticket In both Oklahoma and Arizona, a- lot depends on the other members of the Republican ticket as far as Goldwater is concerned. - •- * Johnson's prestige is needed for the rest of the; Democratic votes in New Mexico and Texas. | In New Mexico,; Republican Ed Mechem, a former governor, is in a close .one with Democratic Rep. Joe M. Montoya for the Senate. It is shaping up this way: Mechem powerful j in eastern New -Mexico; he and Montoya battling for the edge in Albuquerque.' I Democrats figure Johnson will pull Montoya in with him. Republicans disagree. But' there is GOP fear that Goldwater could Crop Yields Show Increase In Indiana LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPI)— Indiana's corn and soybean harvests are running somewhat ahead of last year and ahead of normal. Robert E. Straszheim, agricultural statistician at Purdue University, said in his weekly crop report that about 60 per cent of the soybean crop was harvested by the end of last week compared with 55 per cent this time last year and 45 per cent normal for this time of year. About 10 per cent of the corn crop was harvested compared with an average of 5 per cent and last year's 5 per cent by. early October. - Straszheim reported that the- seeding of. winter wheat is about 50 per cent complete, about the same as average. Other fall grains are nearer to being entirely seeded, with rye at 65 per cent and barley 70 per cent. "The soil remained dry during the week," the report said. "Many areas of the state were plagued by a rainless week. The weather was ideal for "crop harvest but left much to be desired in building up soil moisture. It also makes the job of plowing, seedbed preparation and seeding fall grains more difficult. "Subsoil moisture continues reported as mostly short, with topsoil moisture mostly short to adequate. Pasture condition held steady with a rating of mostly poor to fair." ,pull Mechem down with him, assuming a Goldwater loss. Johnson wants incumbent liberal Sen., Ralph Yarborough to win in Texas, over popular young Republican George Bush. And he wants Yarborough to win smashingly. , From the looks of it now, (Yarborough will win. Just how smashingly is something else again. Bush has been gaining j strength.
