the small society by Brickman WMAT£ THAT AMP PIP Retailers Won't Pay More Farmers Feeling Indirect Freeze By JEANETTE JACKSON News Farm Editor 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, because 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 is 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." Beef and lamb producers prob- ably won't notice much effect from the indirect price freeze, since these prices now are along the upper limits, he said. Kepley said it appears pork prices could bo increased because there is some "slack" between pork farm prices and consumer price, 1 ?. 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 seeing 20-cent-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 squee7X2 farmers are in.

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 \\RS been increased from $60 ;o $68, effective Jan. 1, but it is not a once-a-year payment. A Medicare patient presently pays the first $60 of hospital costs upon entering a hospital In each "benefit period" and will nay $08 upon entering a hospital In a new benefit period on or after January 1, 1972. Everitt explained that "benefit period" is simply a pariod of This is not true of livestock time for measuring tho patients feed purchased by farmers, ac-juse of hospital insurance bene- nmtvIll-HT 4-A fKn T>rtWrt frtl-ir-t i-win-wn Fit t? , A **Knr,rtfl f *\ A T*l/•»/•!" r«4rnif ff es is for equipment and supplies that farmers purchase.

Keeshan, who is Captain Kangaroo, says the most urgent business in children's television is "getting more good, creative, coriipassionate people to create more good programs and get- ting more people to watch less of it." Keeshan said he fears children are watching television to such an extent that it is destroying parent-child relationships. Wheat Planting Into High Gear cording 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. 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, and the Common Market countries — to take retalilory action by increasing their import taxes. This could hurt wheat and feed grain exports from this country to those countries, he said. Farm groups, as usual, are divided ui their opinion of the freeze.

A "benefit period" starts the first lime the patient enters a hospital and ends as soon as the patient has not besn a bed oaticnt in any hospital or any facility providing skilled nursing care for 60 days in a row. The 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+on daily hospital costs in 1970 as compared to 19f>6. The raise in the hospital deductible amount also requires comparable changes in thft amount Medicare beneficiaries will pay toward a hospital stay of more than 60 days. Beginning January 1, the i Medicare patient must pay $17 laily for the 61st through the 00th clay in a hospital. If the Medicare patient is in the hospital longer than 90 days and elects to use 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 House OK's Delay in Federal Pay Raise WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon's order for a $!.&• 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.

Panelists generally agreed hat improvements had been made this season. "I feel it's a giant step from ho Saturday morning cartoon ghetto," said Burt Rosen, producer of "Story Theatre." George Stoney, director of he Alternate Media Center at view York University, said: We have some new programs jut we still have the same old :urse—the commercial." Eda Leshan, moderator of 'How Do Your Children irow?" 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 would 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 • al- ues 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 widsom is." Asked to elaborate, she added, '"Sesame Street 1 grew out of what was a simplistic iew of what our human prob- ems are.

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 way 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.
