GODWIN United Press International WASHINGTON (UK)-»The Agriculture Department said today the gross income from eggs, farm chickens, commercial broilers, and turkeys totaled $3.25 billion in 1961, a decrease of 4 per cent from the $3.37 billion in 1960. This decrease occurred despite a record broiler crop, s record turkey crop, and the second largest annual egg production. The previous record number of broil' ers and turkeys raised was in 1960. The largest egg production occurred in 1959. Eggs provided 56 per cent of the gross income from poultry and products; commercial broilers 29 per cent; turkeys 11 per cent; and farm chickens 4 per cent. These percentages were practically the same as in 1960. Egg production in 1981 was a 61.8 billion. These eggs were produced by an average of 294 million layers on hand in 1951. The rate of egg production per layer on hand during 1961 was 210. Five years ago, 197 eggs were produced in a 12-month period by the average layer; 10 years ago the rate was 177 eggs. And 20 years ago the rate was 139 eggs Broiler production last year was • almost two billion birds—up 11 per cent from the previous year and the largest production on record. The average price received by producers in 1961 'was 13.9 cents per pound live weight, 3 cents less than in 1960. Turkeys raised in 1961 totaled 108.1 million birds—28 per cent more than the previous record crop of 84.7 million in 1960. Minnesota was the leading state in number of turkeys raised with 18.6 million, followed by California with 17.8 million, Iowa with 9.8 million, and Wisconsin with 6.2 million. The 10 leading states in poultry income last year were: California, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Alabama, and Mississippi.

South Bend Mayor Favors Fast Time SOUTH BEND, Incl. (UPD- Mayor Frank J. Bruggner said Monday he favors having South Bend join the eastern part of Indiana in observing, year-around "fast" lime.
