Friday Evening, faun 92, IMS. Lngansport, Indians Pharns-Tribune Wnt Give '62 Minimum Price Support For Wheat Logan-Land Payments Listed by 6 Officers The Cass county Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service office has released the minimum price support rate for the 3962-erop wheat in Cass County. The rate has been established at $2.08 per bushel, according toi Fred Benner, chairman of the ASCS committee. Tihs rate compares with the county support rate of $1.89 per bushel for the 1961 wheat crop. Support payments in the five Logan-land counties show a vari" ation in amounts. The payments by county include: Carroll, $2.07; Fulton, $2.13; White, $2.14; Pulaski, $2.14 and Miami, $2.07. Information on price support rates for wheat stored in terminals is also available at the ASCS county office. The 1962 rate is based on the national average support price of $1.79 per bushel. The chairman explained that freight rate charges, production shifts from area to area, and increased durum wheat premiums are reflected in the computations of the county and terminal rates, resulting in s smaller increase for terminal rates than the overall national support increase. For major producing areas, as in the past, county rates generally reflect terminal rates less handling and freight charges need, ed to get the wheat to terminals. County rates are adjusted up or down for grade and quality to determine support prices for individual producers. Supported By Loans As in the past, prices for the 1962 wheat crop will be supported through loans on farm and warehouse-stored wheat and through purchase of wheat delivered by producers under purchase agreements. Loans and purchase agreements will be available from harvest through Jan. 31, 1963. Loans in Indiana will mature on March 31,1963. Benner emphasized that, to get wheat price support in 1982, producers in commercial wheat producing areas must participate in the 1962 wheat stabilization program. The program requires a mandatory 10 percent reduction from acreage allotments established on the basis of the 55-million-acre minimum national allotment, with payments available to partcipants who divert the acreage to conserving uses. Additional voluntary reductions in acreage may also be made. Farmers who plant within their 1962 wheat allotment will be able to market their entire production without marketing quota penalty, but they will not be eligible for price support unless they signed up and are participating in the 1962 wheat stabilization program. CLOQGED DITCH—As the photo indicates, this ditch in Deer Creek township has become clogged over the years with tree roots and dence undergrowth. This condition has led to some water backing up into fields. The ditch clean-out on several farms and known as the DeHaveu Ditch in Deer Creek township was accomplished through a Soil Conservation Servicing pooling agreement. FREE-FLOWING DITCH—Water is permitted to flow freely now that the choked channel has been cleared. Water will flow into larger drainage basins and away trom fields. The ditch banks, shown in the photo, will 'be seeded with grass in order to help hold the soil. Proper maintenance of the ditch will aid the flow of water for ; several years.

It seems inconceivable, but statistics reveal that 35.to 45 percent of the population in the United States is poorly nourished. The question is - how can this be in a nation with huge food surpluses? A second disturbing fact gained from the statistics is that teenagers make up * good share of the percentage. "Teenage nutrition" has become a national problem, An attempt to curb this problem has led hundreds of 4-H Club members and their families to serve as "guinea pigs" for experiments in good eating as outlined in the National 4-H Food-Nutrition program. Authorities agree that nutrition education comes too late to youngsters. They say such education should begin in the lowest grades so that by the time the child reaches his teens, good eating habits are firmly established. Parents also should be educated, and cooperate by supplying a balanced daily diet for the whole family. It isn't how must or how little one eats that results in being properly fed. It's the kind of fooc consumed. Balanced meals should contain the four basic foods: milk, meat, bread or cereal, vegetables and fruits. The truism "we are what we eat," is probably the underlying pattern for the entire 4-H program. Health, appearance, atti tude, energy or lack of it, are bui a few qualities that hinge on nu trition. These areas are explored anc acted upon by 4-H'ers participat ing in the foods-nutrition program According to reports on theii work, the teenagers help them selves to better eating habits an< better health, and influence mem bers of their family to do like wise. •Scores of girls have found a career in home economics as By BYRON PARVIS „_ V esult of their 4-H food project xperiences, To encourage them n seeking higher education, the -H program annually offers $400 lollege scholarships to six out- tanding members.

Set Charm School In Pulaski County WINAMAC - All 4-H girls who were in 9, 10, 11, or 12 grades during, the 1961-62 school year or are out of high school are invited to a Charm School. The school will be held in the Christian Church basement beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, June 29.

Those who are in Dress Kevue, Demonstration contests, Judging contests, and officers and junior leaders will find the school especially helpful. On Monday July 9 - a Charm School for the junior 4-H girls will be held. Dairy cows, too, are proving the victims of today's slepped-up pace and higher production goals, the American Foundation for Ani. mal Health reported today.. High-producting cows are sometimes the first to break down, andl farmers should keep a close watch on them with this in mind, says the Foundation.' The conditions which most commonly get such cows into trouble are milk fever, ketosis and mastitis. Here are brief pointers on. the three problems: Milk fever strikes about 12 to 72 hours after calving. The cow staggers, weaves, later becomes prostrate with the head, drawn to one side. The disease is often fatal. Such cows can generally be saved if a veterinarian gets to •hem with treatment soon enough. Ketosis also attacks within days of calving. Symptoms include staggering, loss of appetite, .decreased milk flow."This probl<\n also demands prompt professional are. Mastitis, the most costly .of the three diseases, can best be curbed by a two-way effort': 1) Eliminate conditions which damage or lead to infected udders; 2) Have a veterinarian examine each cow to determine the specific mastitis disease organisms present, and then embark on a thorough program to treat and eradicate. "The harder that cows are pushed for greater production, the closer the owner- should watch them for these problems," the Foundation says. ' Farm Prices In Indiana Show Drop LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Indiana farm prices slipped one per cent from mid-April to mid-May, according to Purdue University agricultural economists 'and' state- federal agricultural statisticians. The decline was the second consecutive, prices having dropped two per cent from mid-March to mid-April, As prices paid Hoosier farmers went down, so/did their purchasing power—also off one per "ent. However, purchasing power of U.S. farmers 'and prices they received remained unchanged dur- ing'the 30-day period. The Indiana grain price index climbed two per cent, but livestock prices fell two per cent.

Knox '02 is a backcross improvement of Knox adding a new source of Hessian fly resistance. Knox '62 is expected to replace Knox and should ncrease the total acreage of fly resistant wheat varieties and the overall protection against this pest. • Reed, the other new variety, is a mid-season, stiff-strawed, fly resistant variety that is expected to replace Dual. Purdue plant breeders feel that Reed is better yielding than Dual which has the best yield record in the Easterr United States. In addition, R.-ec has good physical.' grain quality and test weight, the chief fault of Dual. The popular, early/short-straw ed Monon will also be discussed and compared with Vermillion LaPorte, Redcoat, and the .Luca variety.
