The nation's second largest harvest is good news for the eating public - but a wor to the politicians. .. . worry And today the economists are beginning to wonder out loud how high the surpluses can be piled before they get so top-heavy as to threaten a toppling of good times in general.

Corn Prospects Hiclier September's perfect days sent the prospects of corn higher—and the crop will be well above last year's. Farmers can translate that into more meat for American tables. But livestock; production is already high, and meat prices are weak in the wholesale markets. Other crops that September smiled upon are rice, peanuts, tobacco and grain sorghums. Although the wheat harvest is smaller than last year's, it's higher than the goal set by the government. Total farm income this year is running behind last year and is about one-sixth below the record set in 1951. Farmers have been putting new machines and methods into use OKLAHOMA CITY iff) — Oov.

There are five million fewer workers on farms now than in 1920, although the harvests are much larger. The Federal Reserve Board reports that "the genera] financial position of farmers remains relatively strong." It notes a rise in farm debts to finance production and to buy more land, but it says this debt is "still fairly low in relation to current levels of farm income, the large volume of liquid assets hed by farmers, and the value of farm real estate." But with the weather boosting surplus crops — and an election coming- up—the political question of what to do about over-production and weakening prices seems bound to hit new heights of sound and fury in the months ahead. he other "temperamental" engine.
