Ed Buckbee, manager of the storage, anticipates the receipt of perhaps 25,000 more bushels, to bring the total to some 175,000, which still will be around 100 thousand bushels under the 280-odd housand stored in 1954. Those figures reflect a shorter- han-usual crop in the first place, larticularly on Yorks which are in heir "off-year," and a better- han-normal movement of fruit to market, in the second instance. Percentage-wise, the movement has been much greater to fresh channels than to processors. This las been brdught./ about by two reasons: (1) heavier-than-usual canned - apple inventories have caused a declining interest among jrocessors for fresh supplies, and 2) the freeze-out last April of the apple crops in-Southern Virginia, he Carolinas, Tennessee and Georgia, which has caused a'great nflux of cash truckers. here who normally draw supplies from those areas to the south. While prices have been only fairy good, the over-all interest in our apples has been encouraging, particularly in- the face of heavy crops of Mclntosh in New York and New England which are mov- ng relatively cheap, and a bumper crop of Red Delicious in Wash- ngton State, both of which sources of competition are being keenly elt by Hampshire growers. The popular price range on a good bushel of Red Romes, Red Staymans, Black Twigs, Lowrys, Yorks and Golden Delicious is 13 to $3.25 out of cold storage. Tray packs of those varieties are bringing $25 cents-$5 cents more, while five-pound bags, packed nine per master container, are going or around 35 .cents. com$1.50. pa home after being a medical tient in Memorial Hospital.

THUR. ft SAT. «f 1:00 A UNIVERSALONTERNATIONAL.PICTURE Defense Fund Needs Cited By Staggers WASHINGTON '— Pointing out that the next few weeks will see the fashioning of- the Administration's budget for fiscal 1957, Congressman Harley 0. Staggers (D. AV.Va.) today called for "emphasis on defense first and tax-cutting second." "The Administration is now wrestling with the highly complicated budget for next year," said Staggers, "and during the next few , weeks it must decide'whether it wants to sacrifice our defense program in order to reduce taxes in an election year. ."The emphasis should be on defense first and tax-cutting second. As much as the rank and file wage earner needs and deserves a tax cut, I feel no American would want to save money at the expense of our defense i program." Although he deplored, the Administration's tax revision of a year ago which provided greater tax relief for corporations and^in- vestinent speculators and forgot the average tax-payer, Staggers warned against letting an election year blind the Administration to sound economic reasoning. Said Staggers, "It will be a temptation to sweeten the voting pot with an across-the-board tax :ut. But unless such a tax cut can ae done without impairing our defense program it shouldn't considered. "The future of our country, our ability to defend ourselves and our way of life are still the most important considerations. A tax cut would mean little in the long run if it were to weaken our defense posture. "If the Administration is determined to have a new tax bill, I feel there should be a tax revision to give the small-income family and low-wage earner a break. "I do not believe there should, b* a tax cut, but there should be some tax revision to help this worthy group which needs assistance most."
