Iff)— Weakening markets point to the possibility that tlie government soon may be working harder at keeping farm prices from going "too low" than at keeping tliem Irom "oing "too high." t Recent price declines have carried several commodities down to or below levels at which the government is committed lo support them.

It operates through the department's far flung system of farmer committees. Farm commodities whose prices probably will have to be supported in some degree before the summer is over include wheat, cotton, oats, barley and peanuts. Wheat Kelow Parilr . Wheat already is selling below the support rate of 90 per cent of parity. Parity is a standard for measuring farm prices, declared by law to be equally fair to farmers and those who buy their products. Price ceilings may not be placed on any farm products selling below the parity level. Cotton prices have ti'rned down rather sharply since the Olfice of Price Stabiliaztion slapped on a ceiling at 4S cents a pound last winter. New crop cotton is being sold for future delivery at less than 33 cents a pound, or only Dyess Farmer Shot 4 Times 'Old Family Feud' PassfbfE Cause bvi.>tin.iii[, ,u me t>iaie JJennrtiiient I c u ir- - he was one of the targets of charges' Mississippi County officers today continued their search for a Uycss fanner who yesterday made ?ood his escape alter shooting n neighljor four times with a .22 rifle Lainar P.

Only relatively few farm products have claimed above minimum price ceiling levels since price control authority was set up last year. They include beef cattle, vcnl calves, sheep, lambs, cotton, wool, rice and soy beans. Rice and soy beans have since dropped below those levels. Beef caltle are selling at ceiling prices now, but agricultural oificials believe the price will drop below thuse levels in the fall when marketing of cattle and hogs normally increases. Good Crops and Peace Favorable crop prospects coupled with the possibility of peace in Korea arc the rriajor factors in recent declines in farm prices, officials said. Those prices, as a whole, have dropped six per cetlt from a record set last February. The Agriculture Department supports most farm prices by means of loans to farmers.
