Wednesday Evening, November 13, 1957. AG DEPARTMENT: Farm Income, Prices To "Stay About Same WASHINGTON (UP) - The Agriculture Department predicted today that farm income and farm prices will be "rriuch the same" next year .as this year. these forecasts: —Gross income to farmers may be up a little due to slightly larger sales at about the same average prices. - ,— •• |jiiv.c;>. The department also said farm ,,„.„ . , atput in 1958 could "equal or ex-! .~? a » , " ?"» '"""I?- _ h ° W ; fewer acres are put in the soil bank. A bumper 1958 crop would' add to existing large farm surpluses. These predictions came on lop of the monthly crop report issued Tuesday. Equals Previous Record The next-to-last production estimate for the year showed: A 1957 corn crop of 3,333,000,000 bushels, third largest in history, together with a record corn yield of 46.1 bushels an acre; a soybean crop of 491,000,000 bushels, 8 per cent higher, than last year and 81 per cent above average; sorghum grains production of 527.000,000 bushels, more than twice last year's crop and more than three times the average; and increases over the previous October forecast for rice, fall potatoes, tobacco, sugar beets, sweet potatoes and apples. Estimates were lower than last month for output of peanuts, dry beans and some fruits. The. department said the present index of total crop production for 1957 is 106 per cent of the 1947-") base'period. This is the same as a month ago and equals the record reached in 1948 and 1956. The department's view of the 19581 farm outlook was presented 5n two publications—"The Demand and' Price Situation" and "The Agricultural Outlook Digest." Supplies Heavy, Demand High Department economists gave; farm income generally unchanged. —Supplies of farm products will continue heavy. —Demand will continue at the high 1957 level. —Charges for marketing food will rise a little more, thereby further reducing the farmer's share of the consumer's food dollar. —Exports will fall below t"ie 1956-57 peak but will stay high, —Prices paid by farmers will edge higher with increases likely to come mainly from higher interest, taxes and wages. —Demand and supply prospects indicate no big change in the level of farm prices next year. —Feed grain crop carryover next October is likely to be 57 million tons, largest of record and 10 million tons more than this year's carryover. —A bigger hog crop is in prospect with prices "appreciably" lower next fall.

WASHINGTON SCHOOL PATROL WINS SAFETY BANNER SCHOOL PATROL Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Request UN Supervise Korea Voting UNITED NATIONS (UP)— The Republic of Korea called today for the withdrawal of Communist armies from North Korea and a U.N. supervised election there as the simplest way of uniting the divided country. The proposals were set forth by Dr. You Chan Yang, the ROK ambassador to Washington, in a speech prepared for delivery this morning to the U.N. Political Committee. "The time to act is now," he said. "It is already later than it should be. My nation cannot much longer endure being half slave and half free." Denies Division Yang denied there were "two Koreas" and said Korean ueople were "one of the most homogeneous on earth". The terms "North and South Korea" have absolutely no meaning, he said. "If the factor of foreign aggression is removed from the northern provinces and the people there are allowed to express their will freely, the reunification *iil come about as easily as the water in a cubicle will interflow and intermingle when a wall of division within is removed.
