SUNDAY, DECEMBER 24,1961 THE PHABOS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE NINETEEN More Milk Per Cow Being Produced WASHINGTON "(AP) - The Agriculture Department said Saturday the ability of the nation's dairy cows to produce more and more milk per year has by no means reached a peak. Starting from a level of about 4,000 pounds a year in 1934, the annual output per cow reached 5,000 pounds in 1947, about 6,000 pounds in 1956 and 7,000 pounds in 1960. The annual average gain was zero in the 1930's, 1.5 per cent in the 1940's, and almost 3 per cent Ln the 1950's. The department said this phenomenal upturn reflected such factors as improvements in the inherent productive capacity of dairy herds, better care and more liberal feeding. In recent years, the department nation's dairy herd has been ra- than 7 billion bushels, compared pidly improved through the wide- '"--- '-••"-•— '--<• c™.«n^ spread use of proved sires and artificial insemination, and through-more rigorous culling of poorer producers. "It is generally conceded that this increase in the inherited ability to produce is far' from being My utilized today,; and that, given further improvements in management, production per cow could be substantially increased above present levels," the department said.

WASHINGTON (AP)—Fanners are storing a record quantity of soybeans under Agriculture Department price supports this year. In November, 70,549,000 bushels were stored, compared with 13,746,000 to the like date last year. This increase reflected two factors, this year's record crop and an increase in the price support rate from $1.85 to $2.30 a bushel. Farmers had stored 244- million bushels of wheat compared with 364 million to the like 'date lasl year. So far, very little corn has been placed under supports, only 21 million bushels.

A little progress, had been made but a big job was still ahead.

This is something of a switch from the inconclusive U.S. diplomatic contacts with the Soviet Union early this fall which were described as "probes" or "exploratory" talks aimed at learning whether there is some basis for Berlin negotiations. In that first round of talks with Soviet Foreign Andrei A. Gromyko, Secretary of State Dean Rusk found only a thin difference between "exploring" what the Russians might be willing to accept on Berlin and negotiating towards a possible settlement. Now the talk is of "preliminary negotiations" at Moscow, with Thompson backed up by British Ambassador Frank Roberts. More formal negotiations would follow should the Kremlin offer a reasonable basis for a settlement.

"You just missed Jackie Kennedy;" John Phelan, owner of the Golden Falcon lounge told a newsman who walked into the club about 12:30 a.m. Phelan said two men came into the .club about 10:30 p.m., identified' themselves as Secret Service agents, and looked over the room before bringing a parry into 'the club, Phelan said he saw Mrs. Kennedy doing the twist and once, when a spotlight was thrown on the dance floor, the two' men ordered him to turn it off and told him they wanted no pictures or publicity. At Palm Beach, White House press secretary Pierre Salinger told a news conference: "It- was a cheap effort by a night club owner to use the first family for publicity purposes. It is totally unture. She (Mrs. Kennedy) was home all evening." Phelan could not be reached later for additional comment. Kenny Miller, an entertainer at the club, said at first "I would swear" it was Mrs. Kennedy. Later, he said if it was not she, it was "an identical twin." Some patrons at the club also reported they had seen Mrs. Kennedy, but apparently were just repeating reports circulating around the room. The club pianist told newsmen definitely at first that Mrs. Kennedy had been in the lounge later he retracted the statement. In Chinese, "Kung Ho Ser; goo gai.
