MONDAY, MAY 15, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Farm Property Decline Halted Fairly Stable Price Level for Produce Helped Slow Drop By Ovlil A. Mardn WASHINGTON, May 15. (AP) — Fairly stable farm product pi-ices and Improvement In general conditions have checked last year's de- .tVlie in farm real estate prices, (he Apiculture Department reported Saturday. Values for the country as a whole In march averaged slightly above those of November, although they still were about 3 per cent below values of a year ago. A department survey showed that Ihere Is a strong demand for good farms for full-time farming and smaller ones' for part-time farming. The number of farms listed for sale .however, was smaller than in !9I9. The greatest strength in. prices iu recent months was reported in the states from North Dakota and Minnesota .southward through Texas and Louisiana. Scattered other states including Indiana. Kentucky. North Carolina and Florida also shi'.ved gains. For the country as a whole, land values are still more than double the prewar (1935-39) average. 1 The changes in land values by states since last November include: Increases—Missouri two percent; and Arkansas two.

The central meteorological observatory said a typhoon likely would sweep the islands tomorrow. EDSON Continued from Page 8 opposition exists. Governor Stassen's crack at the President Is taken by Democrats in Washington as merely au Indication that Stiissen, who now heads university of Pennsylvania, -Is himself again a GOP candidate. As for Stassea's statement that "the plans for Grand Coulee dam were prepared under President Hoover," there seems to be some difference of opinion. Te record seems to indicate that the plans were prepared by Bureau of Reclamation under 'interior Seeretarj Harold ickes, who authorized construction as a PWA project. Grand Coulee construction was begun in December 1933. It got most of its congressional support frou Republican Sen. Charles, McNary On that schedule. Hoover may never even have seen the plans. Non-I'olllical "Excuse" for Trip The non-political reason, or excuse for President Truman's trip west at this time Ls to dedicate completion of installation of the last generating unit at Grand Cou- PAGE NINE se, and to dedicate Kortes Dam, in lamOaLf.GJ slird etao shr dslirdl Vyoming. The President won't ac- ually go to Kortes Dim, which von't really b« completed (or an- ither (ew months. The road to the lam site Isn't good, and bad wea- lier might throw off the whole trip schedule. So the president will do ils dedicating at Casper, Wyo., 30 miles away. He can of course draw a bigger crowd there. The President makes this dnm rip at the invitation of Interior Secretary Oscar chapman. At Casper, the President will be able to :et In a plug for the Missouri Valley development. At Grand Couce he can get in a plug for Columbia Valley Authority. Any political talks the President makes at whistle stops in between and on the way jack are so much additional gravy. And the fact that .he tour winds up at Chicago with a big speech climaxing a three-day Democratic National Committee and cabinet rally makes the whole enterprise a political undertaking. Or at least it opens the 1950 season by tossing out the first hats. The President won't get really politically hot, however, until along about September. In the two months before the November elections, he Is expected to hit many close contest states. The purpose, of course, is to try to Influence election of an 82nd Congress which will be more to his liking than the Eighty-Worst. New A-Bomb Announced by U.

W)—The United Slates has baby A-bombs small enough to be carried by Jet fighter-bombers yet possibly as powerful as their king-sized bro;hers. Detailed Information on the bombs s a carefully guarded secret. In fact, there has been no official announcement as yet that they exist. The first definite indication that such weapons are In production was Cleaned by a reporter seeking Information on discussions among military leaders over the possibility of arming this country's North Atlantic allies with atomic weapons. The discussions were said to be based on the possibility of using "lightweight" bombs as tactical weapons to replace expensive ground forces iti Europe. While the size of the "baby" A- bimos is secret, the fact thai they can bo carried by Jet fighter-bomb', ers gives some hint of their weight The Republic P-84 Tlumderjet, a typical jet fighter-bomber now In use by the Air Force, can carry two 1,000-pound bombs, one under each wing. Scientists agree that the A-bomb can be reduced in size without re- ducing the power.
