Livestock Victim of truck crash identified STRONG CITY (AP) - The third victim of a two-truck collision Wednesday has been identified as the teen-age brother-in-law of one of the drivers, a funeral home director said Friday. David Croy of the Croy Funeral Home at Cottonwood Falls said the third victim was identified as Allen Keller, 17, of Shepherd, Texas, who was known to be traveling with Harold James Woodard, 21, of Batesville, Ark, the driver of one of the trucks. The Kansas Highway Patrol said trucks driven by Woodard and Thomas Helton, 60, of Liberty, Mo., were destroyed in a fiery head-on collision on a U.S. 50 bridge east of Strong City before dawn Wednesday. Inflation at lowest 3-year level in 2 decades, government says WASHINGTON (AP) - Prices at the wholesale level inched up a modest 1.8 percent in 1985, producing the lowest three-year inflation rate in two decades, the government said Friday. Economists said the year-end figures point to another year of relatively low inflation for 1986. Wholesale prices rose 0.6 percent in 1983 and 1.7 percent in 1984. The Labor Department said wholesale prices rose only 0.4 percent in December, moderating from the 0.8 percent increase of the month before. Analysts credited the lower Wheat (Continued from Page 1) ing." A new wheat program was included in the Food Security Act of 1985, the farm bill signed by President Reagan on Dec. 23.

As a result, 15 to 20 percent of the population of rural Kansas could be displaced, Ward said. "This is a community problem and there has to be a community response," he said. "It has to be people in this state rebuilding agriculture." The FACTS program, which started at KSU in July, operates a hotline for troubled farmers. The staff includes a financial consultant, an attorney and a crisis intervention and family therapist. "The FACTS program is not there to address political issues or policy issues," Ward said. "What we're there to do is answer the phone and help one person at a time. One of the most valuable services a person can get is to have someone listen to them." When the service began, counselors received three telephone calls. By the third day, the number has grown to 20 a day. Ward said by the end of 1985, the program had responded to pleas from more than 1,600 farm families. "That's a lot of people calling for help," he said. He said 70 percent of FACTS clients needed financial and legal assistance. Another 11 percent sought off-farm employment. Six percent had family problems. "Three out of four people who call are men and he's probably going to be 49 years or older," Ward said. "He has probably been in farming for at least 25 years and has an average of 1,000 acres." He said the difference between the present farm depression and the one that devastated agriculture in the 1930s was isolation. Fifty years ago, everyone was in the same sinking boat. Today, there is a wide financial gap between many farmers. "Unlike the Depression (of the 1930s), people don't know which of their neighbors are having problems," Ward said. "People really tend to feel isolated in this situation.'' Ward said the FACTS staff expects to receive telephone calls for help this year from 5 percent of the farmers in Kansas. He said that estimate adds to the irony of a sign near his house, which reads: "One farmer feeds 78 people and you." "There are farm families out there who can't afford to feed themselves," Ward said. Corrections Because of a Journal error, a photograph of Dave Kerr inadvertently was used Friday with a story about Fred Kerr delaying a decision on whether to seek the Republican nomination for governor. * * * Because of a Journal error, a story in Friday's editions incorrectly identified the state official who ruled on the Social and Rehabilitation Services smoking ban in the lobby of the State Office Building sixth floor. The official was Marvin "Mike" Harder, state secretary of administration, whose agency acts as landlord of the building. * * * Because of a Journal error, a story in Friday's Journal about a concert by the rock group Loverboy at the Salina Bicentennial Center incorrectly stated the number of times the group has appeared here. The band previously performed here in 1982 and 1984. * * * Because of incorrect information supplied The Journal, a birth announcement published Friday incorrectly identified the father of a girl born Jan. 8 at Asbury Hospital to Randy E. and Venicca Renee Wheeler, 819 Tulane. December rate to a slowing in food and energy price increases. Food prices rose 0.3 percent for the year, after a 3.5 percent rise in 1984, while energy prices generally showed no annual change. A large part of the year's food price increase was an overall 12.3 percent boost in the cost of vegetables and a surge, in beef prices in the fall that since has ended. Food prices actually fell six months out of the year. Beef prices, which had climbed 11.8 percent in October and 4.5 percent in November, fell 0.7 percent in December. For December alone, overall food prices were up 0.8 percent, following a 1.6 percent jump in November. Gasoline prices were up 3 percent for the year. For December, the increase was 2.8 percent, compared to a 3.7 percent increase in November. Analysts said they anticipate that falling crude oil prices — resulting from the chaotic meeting last month of the Organization of Pel 'leum Exporting Countries — will s >w up in significantly lower gasoline and other fuel costs. Labor Department economist Craig Howells said the slight increase in gasoline prices posted in December — a month when these prices typically decline — occurred because refiners were using up their inventories and holding off on new Briefly lower price supports favored by the administration to make U.S. wheat cheaper on the world market. It also provides for an "acreage reduction" program in 1986, the details of which may be announced next week. The 1986 program could call for a 25 percent reduction, the maximum authorized in the new law. Farmers wanting to be guaranteed price supports and "deficiency" payments in 1986 would have to comply by idling a specified number of acres. Schwensen was asked if he thought the maximum cutbacks would be justified. "Yes, and I think this decline of 7 percent (in the national winter wheat acreage) reflects an underplanting on the part of farmers in response to what they believed to be the (forthcoming) acreage reduction for 1986," he said. Winter wheat makes up about three-fourths of total U.S. wheat production. The remainder is planted in the spring and is harvested later the same year. A related supply-and-demand report included a small upward revision showing that the total 1985 wheat crop was 2.42 billion bushels, down 7 percent from 1984. Winter wheat accounted for 1.83 billion bushels of last year's harvest. The new figures showed that the total U.S. wheat stockpile next June 1, the start of the new 1986-87 marketing year, could be about 1.8 billion bushels, up from 1.43 billion bushels last June 1. That is wheat in excess of domestic and export needs. Wheat prices at the farm continue to be projected at $3 to $3.20 per bushel this year, compared with $3.38 in 1984-85 and $3.53 in 1983-84. For your information crude oil purchases in anticipation of much lower prices. This led to spot shortages and spot increases, Howells said. Crude oil prices themselves fell 4 percent for all of 1985. Department anaysts noted that, if the effects of food and energy prices were removed from the overall calculation, wholesale prices would have held steady for December. Declines in the costs of cars and prescription drugs would have offsetted gains in prices for clothing, tobacco, cosmetics, costume jewelry and light trucks. At the White House, presidential spokesman Larry Speakes called the wholesale price report "a remarkable record of low inflation." Private economists generally agreed that the report points toward continued low inflation, with 1986 producer prices creeping up just a tad more than they did through 1985. "The turmoil that exists in the world market for crude oil and all the weakensses that it is beginning to show will ultimately impact on domestic prices, bringing them down," said Frantz Price, an economist for Chase Econometrics, a Bala Cynwyd, Pa., forecasting firm. He said the declining dollar on international markets has not yet made much of an impact on U.S. wholesale prices, judging from the December figures. No leads in local purse-snatching Police still have no leads in a Jan. 4 purse-snatching involving a 22- year-old Salina woman, Jill Casey, as she returned to her apartment at 411 S. 10th. The theft occurred about 3:30 a.m. The loss was set at $15 for the purse and billfold. The robber was described as a black male about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with short hair and wearing a khaki jacket and blue jeans. He may have been driving a blue 1974 or 1975 pickup.
