ir" 8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, April 24, 1963 Agriculture Vital Now, In Future •£ i^j,. **••• By IRVIN F. ROSS Agriculture is currently pumping $4 billion a year into the economic veins of Kansas. This historically agriculture •state has, in just the last few years, set a host of new high records in farm income and volume of production. The ever- growing business of Kansas agriculture is filled with potential new markets and new possibilities for development of agri-in- dustry. Kansas ranks among the top six states of the nation in agricultural prominence. Income Soil And Water Saving By IRVIN ROSS segment of the Kansas economy. Nearly two of every five workers in Kansas are in agri-busi- ness. Some 267,000 people, 37 per cent of the state's workers, are employed in farming, in "jobs supplying equipment, and materials to operate those farms and in businesses which distribute and process the products of Kansas farms. Ninety-five per cent of the land area of Kansas is in farms, with » $5 bilb'on investment in farm •real estate, and an additional $2 billion in livestock and equip- from Kansas farming and related business exceeds by more than Kansas Milk Production At Low Level . TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas Milk production declined in 1962 to the lowest level in 39 years of record, the federal-state crop reporting service said Tuesday. The service placed the 1962 milk output at 1.0 billion pounds Compared to 2 billion pounds in 1981. The decrease was attributed to fewer milk cows and a slightly lower output per cow. The average number of cows in Kansas in 1962 was 316,000, the lowest of record. This compares to 386,000 in 1961 and a record high of 967,000 in 1934. Milk production per cow averaged 6,000 pounds, the 2nd highest of record but slightly lower than 1961's record of 6,100 pounds. Cash receipts of milk and cream marketings in 1962 were $83.7 million, down 6 per cent from the previous year. 2'/& times that from any other ment, for a total investment of $7 billion in the Kansas farming business. The average investment per worker on Kansas farms exceeds $45,000, which is nearly three times the investment per worker in the nation's manufacturing industry. Total property taxes paid by Kansas farmers amount, to nearly $74 million a year. Taxes paid nn farm land and improvements alone provide the state an annual income of $65 million . . .37 per cent of all taxes assessed on local real estate. Fanning today requires amazing quantities of massive and complex machinery, equipment, chemicals, and other supplies, which generate multi-million dollar industries concerned with supplying and servicing Kansas farms. The farms of Kansas provide a market for 174,700 tractors, 124,200 trucks, 71,400 combines, 115,300 automobiles and a long ist of other items. But what of the future? There is no question that agriculture will continue into distant years ahead as the major factor in the Kansas economy. Also, there is no question that conservation will play a major role in the agriculture industry. Those of you who are now applying, or have applied, conservation practices are doing your part to assure the future of Kansas agriculture. It is sincerely hoped that others will heed your good example and hasten to conserve our soil and water resources. THIS IS THE STORY OF CANCER - Harry Keller, 834 N.

Keller and such information as part of Angus Gets The Princess; Has Kingdom Of His Own By EDDY GILMORE LONDON (AP)-Princess Alexandra of Kent, 12th in line for the British throne, was married in the medieval splendor of Westminster Abbey today to Scotsman Angus Ogilvy, a financier and second son of the Ear] of Airlie. It probably was the last wedding of a British princess for a decade. The only unmarried one left is Anne, 12-year-old daughter of Queen Elizabeth II. Anne was the chief bridesmaid today. Thousands of Londoners jammed Parliament Square outside the 900-year-old abbey and lined the flag-hung mall to cheer the tall, smiling princess and her craggy-faced businessman bridegroom. Millions of Britons watched on television. Alexandra, daughter of the late Duke of Kent and Princess Marina, is 26. Her father was killed in a Royal Air Force crash during World War II. Ogilvy is 34. She has known him since her teens. More than 2,000 guests, including the largest assembly of European royally—in office and out— that Britain has seen since Princess Margaret married Antony and smiling—displaying the habit* ual demeanor that has endeared her to Britons in all walks of life. Her bridegroom appeared equally relaxed and smiling and gently solicitous as he squeezed his bride's hand. Each gave the marriage vows in a strong clear voice as the gold-robed Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Michael Ramsay, questioned them. There ceremony included Alexandra's promise to obey her husband. The princess and Ogilvy rode in the queen's glass coach, drawn by four horses, to St. James Palace for the wedding reception. A plane stood by at London Airport to take the newlyweds to a Scottish honeymoon at Birkhall, a royal residence beside the River Dee. PRINCESS ALEXANDRA Armstrong-Jones three years ago, thronged the abbey. Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mother Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, Prince Philip and Prince Charles headed the British royal family seated to one side of the high al tar. Princess Marina looked on quietly. The princess was calm, radiant Pickle Packers Pick A Pickle CHICAGO (AP)-The National Pickle Packers Association has announced the winner of its "man of the year award."

(AP) — A judge has cut off Sonia Ruth Everson's supply of cigars. Sonia is 2Mi- Juvenile Court Judge O.D. Howell said Tuesday an investigation showed Sonia's father, Chester, had been supplying the child with cigars, which she smoked. Sonia's parents are divorced. The judge ordered Everson to stay away from Sonia. Weather May Affect •j Wheat Vote WASHINGTON (AP)- Continuing dry weather in wheat producing areas of the Great Plains could play a decisive role in the farm referendum May 21 on the Kennedy administration's new wheat plan. Because of a shortage of soil moisture, the winter wheat crop is deteriorating in many sections of these plains. The result could be a greatly reduced income from wheat this year causing growers to look with more favor on the new wheat plan. The new plan, which would go into effect in 1964, has crop insurance features. Under it, if a producer did not have enough wheat to match his allotted share of the domestic and export markets because of crop failure, he would get 70 cents a bushel on the deficit in his marketing quota. Some farm editors from the Great Plains attending a Newspaper Farm Editors Association meeting here reported that they had become aware of some shift to the new plan because of the dry weather. The Kennedy plan requires approval by at least two-thirds of the growers voting to become operative. It is opposed by the American Farm Bureau Federation.
