This is the prediction of some agricultural economists. And, the need is increasing more rapidly, even now, that most people realize. During the past 15 years more than 21 million acres have been taken out of production of crops. This has been occasioned by highways, subdivisions and numerous types of public and private land use. At the present time, the cropland in agricultural production is estimated at 500,000 acres. This is about the same number of acres as in 1910. On the other hand, the United States is feeding 100 million more people. This has been achieved by a tremendous increase in farm efficiency. In other words, in 1965 a farm worker produces enough food products for himself and 30 other persons. In 1920 he only produced enough for himself and seven others. An estimate by an executive of a major farm machinery company indicates that by 1980 the United States will need more than 700 million acres of cropland or its equivalent as compared to 500 million acres at present. One of the sources of additional land will be through drainage and reclamation. Probably, the major source of additional food supply will come from application of known technology and development of new techniques. The farm machinery executive predicts that by the year 2010 the United States will need more than a billion acres of cropland or its equivalent. Even in 15 years, he states, some 75 per cent of all Americans will live in urban areas. And, the nation's population will increase some 50 million, he estimates. Meanwhile, the growth of world population seems destined to increase at a high rate, especially in countries which lack agricultural productivity. Currently, American agricultural is plagued with surpluses in production. The picture may change even within the next 15 years. It has been predicted by some economists that the 1970s will witness a vast upsurge in the economy of agricultural counties. This -change will be the result of economic law rather than governmental regulations. The change of the American society from a rural to an urban status, the growth in population and the limitation of arable land .within the United States will all be factors leading to a fairer distribution of national income for the farm segment of the nation's population. Cloudy Future For Fortune Teller SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)—Police gazed into a crystal ball today and predicted a cloudy future for gypsy fortune teller "Queen Barbara." The 62-year-old gypsy queen was not content to let the stars decide her future, police charged, and instead tried to bribe a policeman with $54,000 for protection of a chain of fortune-telling establishments. Arrested simultaneously in Los Angeles was John Adams, 28, son of the late George Adams, "king of the gypsies." Adams and Queen Barbara, booked by police as Barbara Williams Miller, were charged with 30 counts of bribery and conspiracy. Bail was set at $110,000 each. Bail was set so high because "it is a characteristic of gypsies to be nomadic," said Capt. John C. McAllister, head of the fraud detail. The alleged offenses occurred in Los Angeles, where it is illegal to pretend to tell the future Finn Drilling For Oil Near Patriot PATRIOT, Ind. — The Stouder Drilling Company. Evansville contractor, is drilling for oil on the Dr. H. C. Collins farm about seven miles northwest of here. Operations are in progress on the west side of Antioch Road just north of Indiana 250 at Bun- gers Corner. The spot was selected after the Ashland Oil Company, who has leased much Switzerland County land, made several test drills in the area recently. A geologist of the Ashland Oil Company said this is merely a "wildcat strike" but time will tell the results. He said all the area farmers would spread the news if oil is Struck. Mrs. Fagin OAKLAND. Calif. (UPI)— An Oakland Municipal Court has convicted a 26-year-old mother of four of- teaching her offspring to steal wallets. v Mrs. Bonnie Lee Tussing was arrested after a swimmer saw her five-year-old daughter hand her four wallets belonging to swimmers at a local lake. Police found 50 stolen items in Mrs. Tussing's home. for a fee. Police said Queen Barbara approached police Sgt. Paul Franey and asked him to permit establishment of 30 illegal parlors. He was to receive $150 a month from each of them. Queen Barbara was arrested Friday as she was practicing her spiritual gifts at a fortune- telling parlor in downtown San Francisco. Had the gypsy queen's crystal ball worked, police said, she would have realized Franey was a fraud detail undercover agent. PACES Creensturg bnd.)

It came as a surprise and ushered in a new concept in the papacy. This te the" final of three dispatches on the, Pope and his visit to the United Nations.) By WILLIAM F. SUNDERLAND VATICAN CITY (UPI)-Pope Paul VI in little more than two years has completely changed the concept of the papacy, 'bringing it out of the often musty halls of the Vatican 'and into the space age. His trip next week to the United Nations in New York is a forceM reminder that the Pope no longer is a prisoner of the Vatican, to be heard .on radio or seen oh television. He now is a traveling diplomat, personally bringing^his plea for peace and negotiation to world leaders. The papacy was born with St. Peter, when Christ told him "Thou art Peter and on this rock will I build my church." Since Peter became Pope in the year .33 A.D. his 262 successors have followed many lines — some good, some bad. There have been warrior popes and hermit popes, princely popes and peasant popes. Until 1870 the popes ruled what is now a large part of Italy, having both spiritual and temporal powers. But on Sept. 20 of that year Rome fell to the troops of King Victor Emfflan- uel II and Italy .was unified. "Vatican Prisoner" The Pope, then Pius IX, was stripped of his temporal power and became a self-styled "prisoner of the Vatican." This lasted until fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, signed the Later- latn Pact in 1929, the agreement between the Vatican and Italy that restored normal relations. But even with the Lateran Pact the succeeding popes showed no deske to travel. Until John XXIII was chosen in 1958 the movement mostly -had been from .the Vatican City'to Castelgandolfo, the Alban hill town 18 miles south of Rome where the popes traditionally spent the hot summer months. During his reign of four and a half years iPope John made only one trip, a 400-mile, one- Insurance Agents To Attend Conference Four members of the Decatur County Farm Bureau Insurance Agency and their wives will attend the llth annual agents sales conference at St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 4-5.

But during audiences with men from, around the world, .the rotund,' peasantiborn pontiff often expressed his regret that "I cannot visit your country—but my .successors will." When Giovanni Battista Cardinal Montini, archbishop of Milan, was chosen pontiff on June 21, 1963, there were a few pre- dictions'that he might do some traveling — possibly to such Catholic shrines as Fatima, Portugal, and Lourdes, France. Holy Land Pilgrimage Pope Paul's announcement, at the closing session of the Ecumenical Council's second session in December, 1963, that he .was making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land came as a complete surprise—both inside and outside the Vatican. Only a handful of high prelates and close .personal aides even knew the pontiff was contemplating such a trip. What would happen in the fu-. ture very much depended on the success of the trip, whether he was well-received by the people of such non-Catholic and non-Christian areas such as Jordan and.Israel. If his reception was cold, it probably would have been a long time before Pope Paul thought about making another such trip. Instead, it was a tremendous success. Enthusiastic Reception During the three days, Jan. 46, 1964, (Pope Paul was received with an enthusiasm that bordered on hysteria. The crowds were tremendous, particularly in the Jordanian sector. They were so' enthusiastic that they got out of control and the Popa was shoved and battered about like a straw in a sea of humani- ty. At times he was in danger of being crushed. The pontiff's second trip outside Italy was to the Eucharistic Congress in Bombay last December. This oame as less-of a surprise and. had been rumored for months before the Pope made the official announcement. Once again his reception was enthusiastic. More than two million persons lined the. route into the city from the airport for his arrival. Now additional millions are expected to see -the pontiff dur-: ing his trip to the United Nations. ( (Pope Paul has called himself "an apostle on the move." He might have added, "an apostle for peace." IB.
