Due to agricultural surpluses, acres, have been placed in the soil bank. * While fewer acres are being devoted to production of foodstuffs and livestock, surpluses continue. This is due to increased efficiency in farm operations and to adoption of new techniques. The present farm bill before Congress does not indicate any drastic change for 1966 or the immediate future. But, a change from the policy of restriction of production is certain to occur by the 1970s, if not before. In part, this will be due to higher percentage of,American people living in urban centers. To larger extent, the change will be occasioned by a vast worldwide demand for food. Under Public Law 480, American food exports have amounted to $12.2 billion during the past 10 years. These foodstuffs have alleviated misery for many people but they have only scratched the surface of the need. Population in many less developed nations is growing at a tremendous rate. In fact, population is increasing faster than the food supply. American food production cannot be expected to feed the world. But, foodstuffs from the United States will be required abroad to a greater extent than present. According to economic experts, world famine is fast approaching. The areas in which serious conditions are expected to develop include: India, Pakistan, Red China, Indonesia, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, the northern section of South America, portions of Central America and all but the southern tip of Africa. Efforts are being made in some nations to curb the birth rate, in view of realization that there will not be sufficient food. > In the not too distant future, the United States will be required to recognize the dire plight of peoples of many nations. The only solution will be expanded American food exports, made possible through a program of increased production in the United States rather than curtailment of acres. There is a danger, however, that steps on the part of the United States could be too small in scope and too late in execution. Within only a few years some change in agricultural emphasis in production appears to be imminent. This looms in the future, irrespective of which political party is in power in the United States. 16 Fined, 10 Cited In Court Sixteen motorists have been fined and 10 others have been cited in Justice of Peace Court here.

Sukarno Is Pressured To Ban Reds KUALA LIMPJUB; ..(UPI) — More than 5,000 persons massed in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta today to demand that President Sukarno ban the Communist Party, Radio Mala sia reported. •• The broadcast, quoting Jakar ta sources^ said! 200 Communist supporters had been rounded up by religious and army groups as right-wing Indonesia forces worked to stamp out remnant: of the group which tried to overthrow Sukarno. All direct communications with Jakarta still were suspended, but reports reaching here and other" Asian capitals indicated the 64-year-old Sukarno the lifetime president, was back in control. The total lack of reference to the Communists on Sukarno's radio Jakarta broadcasts lent credence to Radio Malaysia reports an anti-Communist campaign was underway .in the sprawling island nation. Indonesia has the largest Communist Party outside the Soviet Union—an estimated i million. Sukarno had praised them because their ideas on economy were close to his owr and he admired their so-called five principles of peaceful coexistence. Subandrio Emerges Indonesian Foreign Minister Subandrio, mysteriously missing since the attempted coup six days ago^ emerged today and officiated at a burial service for six generals and a-lieut- tenant who died defending Su- karno in the attempted coup. He had not been seen in public since a leftist group of rebels led by an officer of the palace guard tried to overthrow Sukarno in a coup on Thursday. Rebel broadcasts at the time listed Subandrio as one of those backing the coup. Fighting between pro-rebel and loyal troops continued today, according to broadcasts from Indonesia. A broadcasl heard in Singapore said' the rebels controlled several districts in Central Java and the Jakarta area and that loyal forces had been ordered to wipe them out. The diplomatic corps, cabinet ministers soldie'rs and others attended -.-the -services for" the six generals who included Army Chief of Staff Gen. Yani. A broadcast said the six generals and the lieutenant were promoted one rank by Sukarno before the ceremony. Orders "Liberation" Maj. Gen. Sardini. commander of the army's Diponegrod division, was quoted as saying he had' ordered his troops to "liberate" rebel-held areas. The broadcast called on all Indonesians to help wipe out rebel re sistance. More than 200 Communist supporters were reported to have been arrested in a mass crackdown by religious and army groups, in Jakarta, according to Radio Malaysia. It said more than 5,000 Indonesians attended a rally demanding that Sukarno ban Indonesia's 3 million member Communist Party. In Manila, the Indonesian Embassy issued a statement today saying that Sukarno, 64, is in good health and in "full control" of the Indonesian government. The statement said Sukarno would preside at a cabinet meeting in the presidential palace in Jakarta Wednesday.
