Retailers Won't Pay More Farmers Feeling Indirect Freeze By JEANETTE JACKSON News Farm Ectitor Although the recent governmental wage and price freeze wasn't applied to raw agricultural products, Kansas fanners have found farm prices on grain and livestock frozen, farm economists agree, price lines will be held indirectly by market actions. "Farmers' prices on most of their production aren't under the declared freeze, but in reality, it ia under an indirect freeze," says Larry Kepley, Farm Management Association economist. "A retailer isn't going to bid up on agricultural products when he can't pass the increase on to customers," he explained. "This is going to make the market more stable on the upper limits of the market." Beet and lamb producers prob- that farmers purchase. With these items frozen, farmers will benefit. This is not true of livestock! feed purchased by farmers, according to the Reno Consumers Co-op, which custom mixes feed and also has its own formula mixes which are sold to livestock producers. They say feed is not. affected by the freeze. ably won't notice much effect|es is for equipment and supplies from the indirect price freeze, since these prices now are along the upper limits, he said. Kepley said it appears pork prices could be increased because there is .some "slack" between pork farm prices and consumer prices. Pork prices to producers have continued on the low side of the market but haven't reflected an equal drop at the retail level. This would indicate some room for a pork producer price rise possibility. Meat processors are admitting a possibility of see ing 20cent -a -pound hog prices locally being paid to hog producers. The price currently is about 19 cents. Generally Good Generally speaking, Kepley sees the administration's wage- price freeze as a being beneficial to farmers because of its effect on the cost squeeze farmers are in. A large portion of agricultural production expens- Medicare Deductible Is Explained Beginning Jan. 1, Medicare patients will pay $68 each time they enter a hospital during a new benefit period. A New York Times News Service story appearing in The News incorrectly stated that the $68 fee was an annual payment. Clifford J. Everitt. district manager of the Hutchinson Social Security office, said it is true that the deductible amount has besn increased from $60 to $68, effective Jan. 1, but it is not a once-a-year payment. A Medicare patient presently pays the first $80 of hospital costs upon entering a hospital in each "benefit period" and will nay $68 upon entering a hospital in a new benefit period on or after January 1, 1972. Capt. Kangaroo Fears Damage Wheal Planting Into High Gear Wheat planting, delayed across i to l''» inches was "exactly what centra! and Southwest Kansas we needed," commented W.

He said the majority of the Although the wage - price freeze is at least partially beneficial to agriculture, a danger also exists, Kepley said. A 10 per cent surtax on imports from other countries could cause the more industrial nations — Japan, West Germany, ami the Common Market countries — to take retalitory action by increasing their import taxes. This could hurt wheat and feed grain exports from this country to those countries, he said. as farmers make the big push to get their next crop into the ground county's wheat had been drilled by Monday. Wheat drills are rolling across In Southwest Kansas, whcalj Reno County but in some areas drilling is heading into the home;fanners are planting in dry stretch. Over 90 per cent of the 1972 crop is already in the ground in Haskell County. "We're just getting along in real good shape," reports county agent Harry Kivctt. Moisture is in good supply to get the crop started. To die north, tlr; moisture picture isn't that pretty. The Ellsworth County area is needing it. Both sub-soil and surface mois-l ture is short, says Julian Teders.i Kanopolis Co-operative manag-j er. Grey, Edwards, Clark and Hodgeman all are similar to P'ord County in their wheat conditions and moisture supplies. Rains during the latter part of September have provided adequate moisture for good germination of the new wheat crop, says Don Wiles, Ford County agent. Farmers there are wrapping up wheat drilling, with over 90 per cent of their crop in by last weekend. What We Needed Rains amounting to an Inch fields. Dry Month August was a dry month with little rain occurring. Rains have been spotted about the county. In southern Reno, farmers have been praying for moisture, while other fanners in eastern and Fann groups, as usual, are divided in (heir opinion of the freeze. The National Fanners Union believes the 90-day freeze is meaningless because for all practical purposes returns to farmers were frozen by the 1970 Farm Act. The NFO sees the freeze as an opportunity for processors to beat down prices] paid to fanners, thereby in creasing their own incomes. The Grange is supporting the President's plan, believing it will halt inflation providing it is Igvien an opportunity to work. Treating 'Results' The program is treating the results of inflation rather than the cause, claims the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Overall, Reno County has over 50 per cent of its wheat acreage planted. Severy to be Scene Of Western Movie past that point and in the end liurt farmers more than it helps. Everitt explained that "benefit period" is simply a period of time for measuring the patients use of hospital insurance benefits. A "benefit period" starts the first time the patient enters a hospital and ends as soon as the patient has not been a bed oatient in any hospital or any facility providing skilled nursing care for 60 clays in a row. Tlie patient would be required |to pay the hospital deductible amount upon entering a hospital in each new benefit period. A person could have several new benefit periods in a year's lime. Everitt said the hospital deductible amount is based upon the ratio betw+ n n daily hospital costs in 1970 as compared to 1966. The raise in the hospital deductible amount also requires comparable changes in the amount Medicare beneficiaries will pay toward a hospital stay of more than 60 days. Beginning January 1, the Medicare patient must pay SI 7 daily for the 61st through the 90th day in a hospital. If the Medicare patient is in the hospital longer than CO days and elects to his lifetime reserve days he will pay $34 daily and Medicare pays all other covered hospital costs. 2 Area Men to Tour Job Corps Centers Two Southwest Kansans who are state officers of the American GI Forum have been selected to represent their organization in a tour of Job Corps centers in Ogden, Utah.

The two will be among GI Forum delegates from several states who will inspect the Deerfield and Weber Basin Job Coq>s centers Wednesday through Friday to evaluate their operations. NEW YORK (AP) - Bob Keeshan, who is Captain Kang aroo, says the most urgent business in children's television is "getting more good, creative, compassionate people to create more good programs and get House OK's Delay in Federal Pay Raise WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon's order for a $1.3- billion six-month delay in a federal pay raise was upheld by the House Monday 207 to 174. The Senate has yet to act. A host of Southern Democrats joined Republicans in turning back a House move to make the pay raise effective Jan. 1 instead of next July 1, as Nixon ordered. It was the first congressional vote on any of the President's emergency economic proposals, and he said a veto of his action postponing the pay raise would torpedo the whole package. How They Voted WASHINGTON (AP) - Area senators who voted Monday on an amendment to limit U.S. spending in Laos all agreed with the majority, which passed the measure by a 67-11 count. Tlie amendment to set a limit of $350 million was introduced by Sen. Stuart Symington, D- Mo. The vote included: Democrats for: Eagleton and Symington, Missouri; Hughes, Iowa. Republicans for: Dole and Pearson, Kansas; Hruska, Nebraska.

Keeshan said he fears children are watching television to such an extent that it is destroying parent-child relationships. "It is turning us into a nation of spectators," he said. "We are debasing our children, we are debasing our adults." New York Forum Keeshan was a participant Monday night in a forum sponsored by the New York chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on "The New Look in Children's Programming: How Far Have We Come From the Wasteland?" Panelists generally agreed that improvements had been made this season. "I feel it's a giant step from the Saturday morning cartoon ghetto," said Burt Rosen, producer of "Story Theatre." George Stoney, director of the Alternate Media Center at New York University, said: "We have some new programs but we still have the same old curse—the commercial." Eda I^eshan, moderator ol "How Do Your Children Grow?" on public television, suggested that something could be learned from the large amount of time children spend in front of the set. Wrong Values "If they are getting good programs they \vould not drown themselves in it," she said. "The insane hunger for bad shows and bad toys is the problem. It's because we are not giving our children the real values they need for growing up." Miss Leshan said she considered 'Sesame Street" the worst show on television because of its "goal of smartening kids up with no idea of what widsoni is." Asked to elaborate, she added, '"Sesame Street' grew out of what was a simplistic view of what our human problems are. Its goal was not to give children self-esteem or teach them to use their creative powers. I think the solution was to give them a Madison Avenue sell of numbers and letters and somehow we could solve all of the problems of the ghettos." The other panelists defended the show. Norman Morris, a CBS News writer-producer and author of "Television's Child," said "Sesame Street" largely created the atmosphere that brought about the changes taking place now in programming at the networks. Keeshan suggested that one nay to gain financial support for superior programming for minority audiences would be for the networks to require that advertisers rotate their commercial buys among all shows.
