TWELVE IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN WEDNESDAY, JULY 28,1965. Berry's World "We've run out of old movies, the network late-night variety show had low ratings, so we ore presenting something educational!" Severe Drought Has Hit Many Parts of World By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Severe drought conditions have left withered fields, emaciated cattle, dry streams and bleak prospects for crops in many parts of the world. The drought has hit parts of Australia, Korea, India, Italy, Portugal, Kenya, Panama and other areas. • Parts of Australia are undergoing one of the worst droughts on record. The outlook is grim in many of the nation's richest agricultural areas. Heavy rains the past few days broke the drought in the coastal' areas of eastern Australia,, but' vast sheep and cattle ranches to the west still are dry. The federal minister for primary production, C. F. Adermann, said "undoubtedly the drought will have adverse effects on our wheat and other cereal production in the coming season.-- Wool, meat and milk production also will be affected." Here is a brief summary of drought conditions in other areas: PORTUGAL Poor harvests are predicted in most regions. In the southern region, drought and wide tracts of abandoned farmlands have brought a plague of lucusts, million, official estimates said. The wool clip is down. SOUTH KOREA The worst drought in 60 years this spring was broken this month when the rainy season finally set in. Crop prospects, which had been forecast to drop 30 per cent this fall, were revised upward and agriculture experts, now predict an average' rice crop. ARGENTINA Inadequate rains in the provinces of Cordoba and Santa Fe will affect corn yields..'Some late-planted areas have been abandoned for use as forage. Marenisco Personals Mr. and Mrs. Nick Biondi c h and three sons, Superior, spent a week here with her moth e r, Mrs. Catherine Obideen. Miss Rqsyln Obideen, also of Superior, spent several days here with her mother. Mrs. John Gervais and Mrs. William Ballas, Antigp, W i s., spent a day here with the former's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Nickelson. Mrs. Gervais' two sons, Danny and Freddy, who had spent Jaso weeks here with their grandparents, retu r n e d home with them. The boys came here with Mrs. Nichelson who had visited with relatives in the Antigo area the latter part of June. Mr. and Mrs. Glen Endico 11 and family, Duluth, spent several days here with the Garv i n Gilbertson and Robert Rutherfo families. Mr. and Mrs. William Blodget and daughter, Tracy, Levitt- town, Pa., who are vacationing which damaged "tomato and sun- at Houghton, Mich., spent a day at the Harold Swartz home. Other guests were Mr. and Mrs. flower crops. Corn and potato crops both dropped this year, although wheat is not in bad shape, according to the National Institute 1 of Statistics. Grapes have not been affected. INDIA Eastern.India suffered under W. H. Ruker, New Branfe 1 s , Tex. • '•'. '.;••-. ».:".': A daughter, Roberta Lynn, was born to Mr. and Mrs. R"ob- ert Yatchak, Milwaukee, on June 30. Mrs. Yatchak is the the worst dry spell in a decade, former Robin Watkins of, ,Marthis spring, but Food Ministry enisco. officials in New Delhi said that viewed from a nationwide basis, there appeared to be no fear of serious economic dislocation. Officials in Calcutta estimated at least one million acres of jute, India's big money-making export, were damaged. Another 300,000 acres of the crop were not planted this year. Exact damage to crops and to India's food position cannot be evaluated for several months until the impact of the belated monsoon rains is studied. Even a slight drop in yields is harmful because the nation already eats more than it grows. PANAMA A 30-50 percent drop in average rainfall in central Panama has affected the country's richest farming zone and prime cattle area. Cattle herds find little food on the parched, cracking pastures. Unless rain comes soon, rice fields will be a total loss. The Panama Canal restricts the drart of shipping due to low lake levels. KENYA Two years ago Kenya was a corn exporter. Today corn crops ... „«.,.. stand shriveled in the fields and teno ' and tneir families, the nation is importing tons of U.S. corn to feed its people.

The thaw was slower than usual md in .addition there was no rain all May. Rice industry spokesmen estimate a crop yield about 5 per cent below normal. The corn crop also is jxpected to be affected. SOUTH AFRICA Vast areas of the cane belt have suffered an unprecedented summer drought and many rivers have stopped flowing, preventing irrigation of sugar cane fields. The shortage of water may cut the cane crop from an Rites Set for Former Wayne State Official DETROIT (AP) — Funeral services will be held Thursday for Walter C.
