(UP)—This Is Ihe year of Ihe Mouse here In Japan. It also Is Shown 23. This "Year of Ihe Mouse" and Showa 2:i, according to an old Japanese calendar, celebrates the 23rd- year thnt Emperor Hirohilo has occupied Ihe Japanese thi'o:;e. Thousands of Japanese lined up four-nbrcasl in Tokyo from dawn of the New Year to dusk in the palace grounds lo pay (heir respects to the emperor. The line extended n half-mile from the palace gales. For the first time in history common citizens were permitted to go inside Ihe main gate by way ol the famous Nijuba.shi—the double door bridge. There was no telling how many went in during the day to sign (he imperial guest book nnd boiv toward the imperial palace to pay new year's iwpocts to (lit- emperor nnd his wife. U ivus not an easy day lor Hirohito. He was completing Ills first New Year in his new status us a "figurehead" under Japan's nlne- monlh-olri democratic constitution He arose in the middle of the night under the Impact of high domes- t • and foreign demand food prices still wer e edging upward. Agricultural economists last February anticipated » business recession late In 1947. They said it would cause a big drop In food mice.;. Today they say; Food prices In the coming months will be as high as. if not higher than, they were this year. ' Meanwhile, (he government — ; faced with a tightening wheat supply and an 'uncertain crop next i year— called /or greater grain sav- ' Ings to meet Us export "goal" of 570,000.000 bushels of grain, Th e call and opened the Imperial Court New *. ent °>'t to the fnnm. the dis- Year religious ceremonies at 5 ;35 : ""cries, to housewives and to public a.m. Ho worshipped all dieties of , cat l n B places. the .land and spirits of his Imper- : If corn Proaucuon Had been up ial ancestors— Ihen asked lor peace !

Mr. Dilbrey has been advised Dial the forestry commission lias oblain- ed 25,000 additional seedlings Irom another state and these arc being sold lo Arkansas farmers to be transplanted as shelter belts. He said that Die tree.s are available at the standard price of $2,50 per 1,000 and that any number of seedlings from 1.000 up may be ordered. Order blanks may be obtained from his office, he said. The unusual demand for black locust seedlings by Mississippi Coim'y farmers is the result of an experiment conducted by the B C Land Company of Lcachvillo which planted seedling as a shelter belt on n farm located near Leachville several years ago. Officials of the company have ordered an additional IOO.COO seed- hues and plan to plant Ihe trees around each 40-acrc plot of the fajni. Oue-lliou.sand trees will establish approximately three-fourths j of a mile of wind erosion slrlppinz, Mr. Bllbrey said. • Farm Equipment firm Buys Plant in Alabama HACINE. W«., Jan. 2.

The new plant will serve the Southeastern portion -rf the country, If corn production had been to last year's level, there would have been no prbolem. Wheat production this year hit an all-time high of 1.406.761.000 bushels—250000,000 bushels above last year's re- c»rd high. But the corn was down 800.000,000 bushels from last year's record. The shortage of grain needed for <xml!micd for an entire month. ft was bitter cold In Toyko today. The common citizen remained true to custom—he still took his Irarlilinnnl boiling "purification" bath at home. There was no heat in any home. 'flic Japanese dressed in their best clothes iinrt walked to Hie palace. The women wore gaily-colored kiininos. Most ol the Japanese — despite lack of fuel. lood and nearly til necessities of life—were gay For according to the old Japanese calendar, the year of the mouse is going to be P year of abundant food ana much activity!

Floods and rains in the late spring and drought during the summer cut corn production 25 lier cent below last year's output. Corn is the raw material for the nation's meat supplies. With coin short, the government feared farmers would use more wheat tor livestock feeding—despite the high price. But at year's end livestock was coming to market ill heavy num- hcrs. And the agriculture department said that the meat supply would be smaller by 10 pounds per capita. Other 1947 food developments: 1. Sugar price ceilings and rationing ended. Sugar WAS the last food under control. 2. Tlie nation ate four pounds per capita less butter and two Hounds per capita more margarine than in 1941. I?. Prices farmers received for their products broke all previous records. Prices pairt by farmers for their purchases also set new records. <. Despite record prices, the government was forced under its mandatory price support programs to ! prop prices of certain commodities. It made "price support" purchases ol egg. 1 ;, milk, wool, potitoes, tur- . keys, dried foods nnd peanuts.
