GODWIN United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Foreign Agricultural Service predicts 1964 - 65 world production of sugar will total an all- time record 65.7 million short tons. This is 10.7 per cent above the 1963-64 crop of 59.3 million tons, and 9.3 per cent above the 1960 - 61 record of 60.1 million tons. FAS said all continents probably will have increases this year, but with African production up only slightly. FAS estimated free world production of sugar in 1964-65 at 45.6 million tons, compared with" 42.8 million in 1963-64. LJ.S. production this year was " 6,766,000 ward stronger demand; for meat • and livestock consumer products. ! —Growth in the livestock industries in these countries, resulting in increased demand for feed grains, oilseeds, and high protein meal. —Competitive pricing and better quality of U.S. exports. —U.S. market development ef-, forts. The department said unfavorable wheat harvests in Western Europe and the Soviet Union contributed to the rise of $327.4 million in dollar exports of wheat and flour.

Scabies Inspection To Begin Monday Sheep scabies inspection will start in Tipton County December 7. This inspection will be done by county personnel- who are employed by the Federal Vetinary department and are familiar with sheep. Darrell Stoops and Leon Stewart will inspect all sheep in Tipton County. Any farm that has one or more head of sheep will be inspected twice this winter, on December 7 and February 15. Stoops and Stewart attended an instruction meeting at Indianapolis last Thursday regarding the state-wide eradication scabies program. Indiana is the only state that is not scabies "free". Sheep numbers are low and the incidents of scabies in Indiana is low. This is a good time to get Indiana a scabie free state. Sheep scabies, caused by very small mites that burrow under the skin and cause irritation, reproduces itself in two days and multiplies rather rapidly. This is the reason for two inspections. A flock with slight infestation at the time of the first visit might pass undetected. In the two months interval the infestation will be spread enough to be very noticeable. •Flocks will be observed . by Mr. Stewart and. Mr. Stoops. George L. Mehren, assistant secretary of agriculture, told the New England Bakers Association at Boston today the wheat program is a success. He said the program stabilized income to wheat growers without resort to compulsory quotas. A major objective of the program, he said, was to raise the income of wheat growers above what it would have been without new legislation. He said 1904 farm income from heat, plus the value of wheat certificates and diversion payments, now is expected to exceed $2.1 billion. Without the new law, he said, wheat income would not have been more than $1.7 billion. He added that production,, in 1964 would have been much higher than the 1.3 billion bushels now indicated and price support would have been only $1.25 per bushel. Farm prices dropped 1 per cent jn the month ended Nov. 15, the Agriculture Department reported Monday. The most important price decline's were for oranges and hogs. Partially offsetting were increases for tomatoes, wholesale milk, and potatoes. The index of prices received for crops and livestock was per cent below that of'No vember, 1963. . The drop in prices received coupled with a rise of one thttd of 1 per cent in prices paid combined to effect a parity ratio of 75, down 1 point from mid - October. In November, 1963, the parity- ratio' was 78. Hog prices dropped $1.20 per hundredweight in November and beef cattle prices dropped 20 s cents per hundredweight Close inspection of individual animals is not necessary. An infected animal is so irritated by the mite that noticeable scratching, rubbing and biting is quite evident. Suspicious flocks will be reported the area veterinarian. The cost of dipping is not an expense of the owner of the sheep. During- each of these 20-day periods, sheep are not to be moved from the farm until the flock is inspected by Mr. Stoops or Mr. Stewart. If the flock is free of scabies the quarantine will be lifted on these inspect |ed flocks. Any questions regarding the scabies inspectation may be made at the County Agent's ofifce or with Darrell Stoops or Leon Stewart. Send greetings daily with a Christmas gift subscription to THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE An Agriculture Department survey shows that most farmers participated in the cropland conversion program in 1963 because they expected a larger or more certain income than they had been earning from cultivating their farms. The 1963 cropland conversion program authorized up to $10 million in payments annually to aid farmers in converting cropland, including tame hay land, to conserving and less intensive agricultural and recreational uses. These uses include pasture for livestock, trees, wildlife habitat, and recreation. Agreements provide for maintaining the land in conservation use for five or 10 years. Farmers received adjustment payments for part of the costs of seeding, fencing, building water storage facilities, developing limited recreational facilities, and other approved conservation practices. \s /HICH IS THE OLDEST Of flU.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — Agriculture Department an^l ysis shows that practically _all the Increase in U.S. farm,exports in fiscal 1964 was in c mercial sales for dollars. -Total U.S. farm exports in fiscal 1964 was about $5,1 billion. Of this, more than $4.5 billion was in commercial sales for dollars. This represented an increase of 20 per cent, or nearly $1 billion, over farm exports the previous year. Farm exports under government - financed programs totaled about $1.6 billion, up only $20 million from the previous year. The department listed^ number o£ factors contributing to the unprecedented increase in agricultural exports for dollars. They included: —Continued advance in economic activity in Western Europe and Japan with consequent increases in disposable income. —Shifts in dietary habits to- , /WASHINGTON (UPI) — The [Agriculture Department's dairy advisory committee believes the department should be authorized to buy farm products on the open market for donation to welfare programs at home and abroad. The committee said Tuesday the new buying authority should cover farm products whether or not they are considered surplus. It believes the department also should have the power to make welfare purchases at levels above government support rates for farm commodities. The recommendations were phrased to apply to all commodities, but the committee in dicated it was interested chief- in boosting the income of dairy farmers. A committee spokesman pointed out that the Agriculture Department is running short of stocks of surplus dairy products for overseas donation. He said government purchases in this field might help strengthen dairy farm income. The committee said there is high priority need for action to improve dairy income. It said many farmers were badly hurt by this summer's drought. At the same time, the com mittee recommended a new system of bookkeeping for gov ernment food donations to welfare programs. It said the.cost of food donations should be charged to welfare and foreign aid programs, not to the farm support programs. The committee refused to recommend approval of a proposed new dairy program which has been endorsed by Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman. This plan would call for direct government payments to farmers who voluntarily reduce milk production. A committee spokesman said there was some sentiment in favor of adopting the program on a stand-by basis, but most HOW DID *fri£ FWRS6 «R ttPrttitZ IN OHfc'S CRP 4 ' ORIGINATE ?

C & W FIRESTONE STORE Arcadia, Ind. Fh&ne YU 4-2445 WASHINGTON (UPI) — The European Common Market's current move toward agreement on a uniform grain price for Western Europe poses a major problem for U.S. trade negotiators. U.S. trade experts fear the European move will result in a drastic cutback in 'sales of American grain- to Europe that now average about $350 million a year or more. To offset the potential losses, U.S. officials want to negotiate a market - sharing agreement with the Common Market. Such an agreement would guarantee American producers a fixed minimum percentage share of the European grain market. . Inside the Common Market today, each of the six member eQuptrie^s. has a separate grain price. In the case o£ wheat, these prices range from about $2.40 a bushel in France to a high of about $3.24 a bushel in Germany. Common Market leaders are trying to reach agreement on a single uniform grain price .for •wheat and .for feed grains as well. The Common Market commission has proposed a uniform- wheat price of $2.89 a bushel. This figure" is almost midway between the French and German "prices. France and Germany had appeared deadlocked on the issue until this week. Then, Germany agreed to lower its price. German officials proposed a uni form price of $2.99. United Press International, reports from Europe said this offer was expected to pave the way toward a final compromise. Any European agreement on a price in the general area now under discussion, how ever, would be a threat to U.S. trade. Raymond Ioanes, head of the Agriculture Department's For eign Agricultural Service, recently said' the proposed Com mon Market prices would stim ulate grain production in Europe, and imports from outside suppliers including the United States would drop. Ioanes added that future ne gotiations on U.S. grain exports to Europe will affect a wider issue of liberalizing trade in all kinds of commodities under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.
