The. Agriculture Department, saiil farm dollars rolled in fustfr during the first eight mnnths l>f this year than ever before in history. The reason, they said, -.-/as the record number of dollars in th hands of Aincriean consumers ant a booming foreign demand for u S. food. If fnrni receipts continue at prc sent levels for the next fon months, farm income will Lop la. year's reccrd-breakiii'^ .$18,889,000.000 l>y a subsUtitial margin. The 0,ci);irLmciil saici total easli farm receipts for the first eight months, of 1947 were $11.400.000,QUO — the result of a 21 per cent hike in farm prices since January. Thi.s means 'farmers must lake in only Sl.48.000,000 between now and December 31 to equal last year's record. Actually they will collect much more. September wheat, for instance, sold at sa.62 1-4 cents a bushel at Chicago yesterday, if the percentage in wheat prices is as fjreat between now and March as it was last year, wheat couUI hit $4 a bushel. The rise in farm prices is nol all clear gain for the farmer since his operating costs also are I at an all-time hisli—K; per cent above the corresponding date last year. Agriculture officials decline to predict how much the average farm operator probably will take in this year. But they said it probably will be "substantially" above 1946 when the average net farm income was $2.541. The .;2.541 figure applied only to the farm operator—the owner group—and did not include the farm \vorkcr. The combined average annual income of the two groups was $1,741. The average city wage earner not including white collar wqrkers, made $2,233 last year, a figure that would be lower If ii included-the average wage of the white collar worker. High meat prices led ' the increase in farm prices. Receipts from livestock and livestock product--, from January through August were SIO.OOO.COO. a hike of 30 per' cent over 1940. | Meat animals showed a gain of nearly 50 per cent. This was slightly more than the increase in retail prices, indicating that the 1 farmer got a bigger-than-normal share of the consumer's meat do!-' Uit. Income from field crops such as corn and wheat was about S6.- 3CO.OOO.OOO for the first eight months of the year, a cilrccl result of the huge export program. This was 20 per cent over last year. Hairy inconin, including gov- rrnmcnt payments, was only slightly above 1845 but income from poultry products jumptil 10 prr ccnl. The cotlon farmer's cash take was JS per cent higher than last a!lhoti s h his volume sale.s were down. 3as Consumers Council to Meet Directors ro Confer On Ordinances Granting Franchises LITTLE ROCK.

U.S. Officials Confer With Greek Leaders ATHENS. Sept. -1. (UP)--The United Stales today intervened strongly in the Greek political crisis, throwing its full weight behind a new effort to obtain a broader and more representative Greek government.

Cotton Price Outlook Good, Expert Says LITTLE nCCK. Ark.. Sept. •! (U.P.)—This year's cotlon crop will not need to be placed in government, loan despite a drop ol $8.85 a bale in the average price of middling 15-10 inch staple during Uie past 30 days. J. Ritchie Smith, colton specialist of the State Extension Service, said today. Smith said that cotton has : "favorable statistical situation which indicates Ihis year's crop will not,- be '-placed- in lonn. ~ He explained that growers began planting this year with "carry-over" of slightly more than 2.5CO.COD bales, the smallest since 1929. Last year's consumption was lC,Br.O,OCO bales on the domestic market and 3.500.000 on the foreign market. If this year's con- sumptjon reaches that figure, it will absorb readily the carry-over and anticipated crop of 11.8-14.000 bales. Smilh said. A Little Rock cotton broker predicted, however, that if cotton which is now about 525 a bale nbovc government loan value should dro|j $10 01 $15 a bale, many growers will riacc their crop under the loan in hopes of higher prices at a later date.
