MANHATTAN — Despite higher prices for just about everything from aspirin to zucchini, spending for 'day-today family living declined last year on Kansas farms. That conclusion emerges from a look at the latest Kansas State University figures on average living expenditures on Farm Management Association farms. Such spending fell to $10,116 for 555 farm households averaging 3.8 members last year. That's down 2.5 percent from $10,373 in 1974 and the first decline in 10 years. Larry N. Langemeier, K- State economist who compiled the figures, believes the dip in living expenditures last year is due to the fact that most farmers base * their family spending on the previous year's income. "In contrast to most other Americans, farmers' incomes fluctuate — up one year and down the next," he says. "Most farmers tighten their belts and hold the family living budget in' check following a low income year. However, when incomes increase, they may make some long overdue expenditures like remodeling their homes or buying new furniture and other household items." Farm income reached an all-time high in 1973 on Farm Management Association farms. With more money in their pockets, farmers spent 33.5 percent more for family living the following year. But incomes tumbled in 1974, and living expenditures were down about 2.5 percent in 1975. However, Langemeier sees the trend as a leveling off in spending, noting that the 1975 expenditures were 31 percent higher than 1973 and more than double the 1967 spending. Expenditures fell 19 5 percent for personal items like cigarettes, jewelry and cosmetic; 12 percent for household operations, including furnishings and repairs; 11.2 percent for education and recreation; and 9.2 percent for clothing.

Til 7:30 Langemeier says farmers may have spent proportionally more for these items in 1974, following the high income year in 1973 So their expenditures may have dropped off in comparison a year later. Despite the overall drop, spending last year rose 13 percent for gifts and contributions and about 1 percent for medical care. Food purchased took 21 percent of the amount Farm Management members spent for living, averaging $2,183 a family. Household operations accounted for 20 percent; medical care, 12 percent; gifts 'and contributions, 11 percent; clothing, 8 percent; life insurance, 7 percent; personal items, 6 percent; recreation, 5 percent; education, 4 percent; automobile, 3 percent; and telephone and electricity, 3 percent. Only cash expenditures are included in Langemeier's figures. Rental value of the home and food raised on the farm are excluded, as are savings and income tax payments. Langemeier believes the farm comes first for most farmers, before family living. The farmer's priority system requires heavy use of self- generated income either to expand the farm or to retire debt, he says. That means many farm families have less money to spend on family living than non-farm families that have a similar income. Living expenditures increased as the age of the oldest child increased. Families with children over 18 years of age spent the most, those with pre-school children and couples with no children living at home, the least. However, on a per-person basis, couples with no children at home spent considerably more than families with children. "The farm came first for the older couples for 25 or 30 years," Langemeier says. "But now less money is needed for expansion. And their children are on their own. So they are having the farm repay them with a fairly high standard of living. They eat out more often, spend more on housing, and their medical expenses, contributions and gifts are higher. "Many families with young children are just getting established in farming, so they must plow a greater share of their net income back into the business," Langemeier says. "That means there are fewer dollars left over for family living." Average net farm income on the farms in Langemeier's study averaged $16,751 last year. Other income from sources like non-farm jobs, royalties and wives employed outside the home, brought the total average net income to $22,592. Of this total, an average of $10,116 went for family living, $1,115 for savings and non- farm investments, and $3,942 for income taxes and Social Security taxes. That left about $7,400 for principal payments on land, machinery and operating capital. Looking ahead, Langemeier believes the climb in living expenses will resume next year, reaching 6-8 per cent. But the value of those extra dollars will be eroded by higher prices farmers pay for day-to-day family living, he says. rica Monday, September 6 1/t Salute to Jne Vvornen In observance of this day we will CLOSE Friday at our regular time, and re-open Tuesday morning.
