PAGE 2 Saturday, April 3, 1965 TRIBUNE FARM & HOME PAGE— COUNTY NEWS - VIEWS • FARM • HOME • CITY On The Farm Front (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By GAYLORD P. GODWIN United Press International "WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Agriculture Department said today that domestic food donations by the government totaled more than a billion pounds during the first half of fiscal 1965. This was 10 per cent more than the same period a year before. The donated foods during the July - December, 1964, period were used to help feed school children, needy families, and needy persons in charitable institutions. Cost of the donated foods was S249.2 million, a gain of nearly 39 per cent from the same months of 1963. The department said this increase, was accounted for largely by the 'distribution in fiscal 1964 of ,more than $48 million worth of .frozen ground beef and roasts [to schools and about S39 million worth of canned beef in natural juices to needy families. These .products were not available for the same period a year earlier. Schools received 348.6 million pounds of donated foods during •July-December, the department said. This excluded foods purchased by the department for schools participating in national school lunch programs. Donations to schools were 22 per cent, greater than in the comparable period a year earlier. More than half the donated foods — 560.8 million pounds — went to needy families during the first half of the fiscal year. This was an increase of about 4 per- cent from the same months of the year before. Charitable institutions serving needy persons received 92.7 million pounds during the first half of fiscal 1965, a gain of about 8 per cent over the same period a year earlier. Montana to Michigan. The agency said state committees of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service would determine which counties would accept signups beyond the original closing date o£ March 26. WASHINGTON (UPI) —Because of recent heavy snows in the northern part of the country, the Agriculture 'Department extended for one week— to "April . 2—the signuj t ipe.riod for participation in the- : ; : 1965 wheat and feed -grain programs. The department limited the extension to "certain countries' in an area stretchiDg across the northern reaches from The forthcoming national survey of eating habits will' involve interviewing of about 15,000 householders in 43 states and the District of Columbia, according to the Agriculture Department. The survey will begin in April and will be conducted by National Analysts, Inc., a private marketing research firm working under contract with the department. The agency said about 15,000 households will be asked to furnish information on the kinds and quantities of foods used during the week preceding the interview. Visits will be made to about 7,500 households this spring and to about 2,500 each next summer, fall, and winter. The households interviewed this spring also will be asked about food eaten at home and away from home during the previous day by* individual family members. The department said the survey is expected to provide an over-all picture of food consumption patterns of representative U.S. households in each of the four seasons. Prices for family living items; averaged slightly lower during the month, but not enough ; to disturb the index of prices paid. The larger declines were 1 for food and ! auto supplies: Clothing prices were down slightly, as were prices of household furnishings. . • ' ! The parity ! ratio for the month was 75, (the same as in mid-February, j but one point below mid-March, 1964. Secretary of ; Agriculture Or ville.Freeman has announced establishment of' a pesticides information center in the department's national agricultural library. ; j Freeman said the center is a pioneering "• development which jiam pue ; S }sad uo orjeuijoj marks a significant advance in making widely available masses of scientific and technical in- control. He said the department has under consideration establishment of additional science information centers to serve other j subject matter areas. ' ! j j An important product of the center is a bi-weekly publication— the Pesticides Documentation Bulletin/ \ $1.8 billion, just behind: corn and cotton. WASHINGTON (UPI)—Farm prices received • for crops and livestock rose a bare Vi per cent in the month ended March 15, the Agriculture Department reported Tuesday. The index of prices received by farmers for the imonth was unchanged from that of a year earlier. The department said fanners received higher prices for tomatoes, celery, beef cattle, cotton, chickens, soybeans, and corn in the month ended March 15. But these returns were offset in part by lower prices for 'Wholesale milk,' hogs, lettuce and wheat. Farm costs — including interest, taxes and farm wage rates — were unchanged for the month but were IVz per cent" above those of a year earlier. WASHINGTON (UPI) — The soybean crop is the only one of five - billion - dollar - plus cash crops that is not in surplus, j The other cash crops, each worth more than a billion dollars, are corn, cotton, wheat and tobacco. There is a heavy surplus of each. " \ But not soybeans. In a review of the fats and oils situation, the Agriculture Department said the supply of soybeans at the end of the marketing year Sept.j30 will be about 10 million !bushels. This carryover into the 1965-G6 marketing year beginning the next day is less than a "j week's require ments for domestic crushing and export. The carryover on Sept. 30, 1964, was 32 million bushels. This was an ample cushion until; the new crop reached the market in volume Soybean production has been burgeoning for more than-25 years. Soybeans were some what obscure I prior to World' War II. In 1947-49 the average value of the soybean crop was about S500 million. In 1964, the value of the soybean crop was i TILL Crushings of soybeans for 1964 - 65 are expected to total around 470 million bushels, compared with 441 million bushels a year earlier. Exports are expected, to be about 205 million bushels. Seed, feed, and carryover are expected to total about 47 million bushels; , The soybean acreage this year will be about 34 million acres, up 8 per cent from 1964. On such an acreage, giy^n normal growing conditions and norittal uptrend in yield, |a crop of about 829 million bushels is possible. The output in 19G4,was 700' million bushels, barely above the 1963 production. The department said exports of edible vegetable .oils for .the 1964-65 marketing year | would be about two billion pounds, compared with 1.7 | billion pounds a year earlier. Soybean oil is expected to account T for about two-thirds of the total. Japan, Canada, Israel, and the countries of western Europe are the major foreign markets for U.S. soybeans. In 1963-64, these countries bought nearly 95 per cent of U.S. soybean ex^ ports. Japan is the largest single foreign outlet. j Soybeans are used for man and beast. Soybean meallis used as animal feed. An important human food from soybeans is in the form of salad and cooking oils. , i The department said j operators of 877,257 farms" hadj agreed through March 25 to divert 7,320,125 acres from wheat -production. The signed farms represent effective wheat allotments of 43,736,138 acres, or 82 per cent of the national total. The signup period, originally scheduled to end March 26, was extended to April 2 in some of the spring wheat areas hit by heavy snow and cold weather. The department said the, current signup for participation" in the 1S65 wheat program already had exceeded the record year of 1962 when 820,079 producers were enrolled.- The 19S5 feed grain signup as -ol March 25 shows tiiat 1,378,138 producers have agreed to divert 34.1 million acres from production of feed grains during the current crop year. The diverted acres include 23.3 million acres of cornland.

COURT STREET : I ft:. TIPTON, IND. Poultry Raisers j At Conference Raising chickens is traditional with 4-H youngsters, but the method is not. Members engage ed in. poultry projects readily adopt new practices recommended by the Cooperative Ex: tension Service and, the fast- paced poultry industry. Recently, a selected group of 4-H poultry raisers attended the Junior Poultry. & Egg Fact Finding Conference at Kansas City] This afforded the young people an opportunity to hear top men in the industry, learn about jobs available, and view a vast exhibit of automation and scientific practices in use today. The national 4-H poultry program attracts both boys and girls. Some have family-size flocks while ethers are producing on a commercial scale. As a matter of fact, a flock of birds is not even necessary to participate. Investigation or experimentation with incubation, genetics or nutrition has attracted 4-H'ers interested in poultry sciences. A 17-year-old Ohio boy expanded his project from 800 chickens in a two-story barn to more than 4.000 caged layers. He found better management of his flock was necessary, and with the help of his parents, took steps to bring this about. • Another lecn-ager more than doubled the size of his flock by employing new practices learned in his 4-H Club. A girl used her poultry know-how as a junior leader and helped younger members. Along the way, she made more than 90 poultry exhibits and reported a gross income of some §7,000 over a six- year period. ' • Efforts like these are. acknowledged and rewarded iq various ways. Each year the Extension Service names county, state and national winners of awards provided by the poidtry program sponsor, Heisdorf .& Nelson Farms, Inc. of Kirkland, Washington. Six S500 educational scholarships will again be given to the highest ranking members in the nation. The state winner will be a delegate to the National 4-H Club Congress next fall as a guest of the sponsor. Up to four members in each county may receive" a handsome gol'd-filled poultry medal. NEW YORK (UPI) — Wright Investors' Service says that although it still advises a policy of selective profit-taking it does not believe a major bear market is yet imminent. ' The firm says it expects at least one interim price reaction of about ten per cent, but would regard this as an opportunity for selective new commitments . rather than the beginning of an ' across the board collapse.
