•it* • *!MF**i J -i Farm Income Shows Drop By GAYLOfib P. GODWIN WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Agriculture Depart- merit 8aid tdday net farm income for the first half of 1963 was almost 3 per cent below that of the corresponding period of 1962, , The department estimated the aggregate net farm income In January-June was running at an annual rate of $12*/4 billion. The rate for the same period in 1962 was $12.7 billion. Net farm income for all of 1962 was $12,6 billion, (revised). In a review of the farm income situation, the department said the average income of U.S. farmers during the first half of 1963 was about as high as a year earlier The agency, pointed out, however, that the decline in the number of farms over the past year' was at about the same rate as the decline in income. The gross farm income (before any expenses are paid) in the first half of 1963 was slightly above the record rate of 1962 because of higher cash receipts from marketings and a continued high rate of government payments to farmers, the department said. Cash receipts from farm market­ ings in the first half of this year were $15 billion, about $200 million more than in the same period of 1962. Government payments to farmers this year probably will be higher than the $1.7 billion total grain and wheat stabilization program payments this year are expected to total slightly above the $1.1 billion paid last year. The department said production costs through June were above those of a year earlier, more than offsetting the gain in gross farm income. Total cost outlays for the farm business were estimated at an annual rate of slightly more than $28.5 billion during January- .Tunc. /This was about a half billion dollars above the January- June, 1962, rate. Prices paid by farmers for production items, interest, taxes, and wage rates averaged about 2 per cent more than a year earlier through June this year. Interest rates were up 7 per cent and taxes payable an acre were' 5 per cent higher than in 1962. Farm wage rates were up 2 per cent, but the number of hired hands through June has been about 3 per cent less 1 than in January-June of last year. The $15 billion in cash receipts from farm marketings for the first half of 1963 consisted of $9.4 billion from livestock and prod- of 1962, the department said.

Crack Down on Beetle Pest By RICHARD NORBRATEN United frew International SPRINGFIELD (UPI )-A major pest that has plagued Illinois farmers since the 1930s Is doomed to extinction under legislation before Gov.

The Chicago & North Western Railway filed the petition for the rates, which had been suspended by the ICC July 15. The railroad asked for reconsideration of the suspension and the Peabody Coal Co. filed a petition supporting the railroad's position. The commission heard testimony about the case Tuesday and lifted its suspension, allowing the rates to go into effect. The rates are applicable only from Oct. 1 to April 30 and the shipper must move 900,000 tons of coal during that time in order to qualify for the rates. The rate from the Fulton County area is $1.50 a net ton and from the Springfield area, $1.60 a net ton. The Illinois Terminal Railroad can add 15 cents to that rate when its operations are involved. Unit trains are complete coal trains that shuttle back and forth between the coal fields and a specific market. / READ THE WANT ADS! Melings Plan ansion of Their Motel MONMOUTH — An expansion program which will enlarge and modernize Meling's Motel, 1129 N. Main St., was announced today following its incorporation in the State of Delaware as Meling's, Inc. Work is planned to start within the next few weeks to add 16 motel units to the 24 now operating, making a total of 40 units. The project* includes complete replacement of the cafe with a fully modern restaurant, including banquet facilities; and construction of a new swimming pool and a patio. Incorporation of Meling's, Inc., under the laws of Delaware was certified by the Springfield office of Charles F. Carpentier, Illinois secretary of state. The state record shows officers and directors of the corporation to be Clarence M. Melins, president; Mabel I. Meling, vice president; Bufford W. Hottle Jr., secretary-treasurer, and serving with them, Dr. Darwin K. Hauber and David D. Edwards on the board of directors. Mr. and Mrs. Meling and their two sons, Robert and Dave, started their motel business in 1960 by building five units. In three years they have gradually increased their capacity, so that they are now operating 24 units. Twenty-three other local people have joined with the Melings to form the new corporation to operate a restaurant and motel business, Meling indicated. He said the new restaurant will be located immediately northeast of the present cafe, which will be torn down, and the establishment will be visible from the adjacent west road as well as U.S. north- south highway 67 beside which the property is situated at the north city limits of Monmouth. MONMOUTH HOSPITAL AMONG THE FIRST—Wayne G. Richards (left) of 1547 Haynor St., was among the first contingent hired for special training by Nitrin, Inc., the huge new nitrogen chemical plant being built along the Mississippi River between Cordova and Albany on U. S. 80. Richards is greeted July 15 on the site by Robert L. Logan, vice president and general manager, as he starts comprehensive 6 -wcek nitrogen training course. Nitrin is a $23 Mi million joint venture of International Minerals & Chemical Corp. and Northern Natural Gas Co. ment would spend as much of the $310,000—to be matched by federal funds—in the state's program to eliminate the pest. William T. Larkin, superintendent of the division of plant, industries, said his office would "move right into the program this fall" if the bill is approved. A residual pesticide would be sprayed into the soil to kill the grubs that hibernate during the winter. The beetle, which first was discovered in the United States in 1916, is about three-eighths of an inch long and green in color with gold wings.' It attacks just about anything that grows and in Illinois concentrates its destructive powers on corn and soybeans, two of the state's top crops. Larkin said the beetle eats the sill off corn to prevent pollination of the crop. II also eats the blooms off soybeans. During the winter the insect turns into a grub and buries itself in the soil where it attacks grass roots and roots of many other plants, including rosebushes and ornamental plants. Although the beetle is found in only certain areas in Illinois- including Iroquois County and around Paris, Mattoon and Chicago where infestation is "fairly heavy"—Larkin said it is one of the state's major pests. He said the insect with its immense hunger is "probably more destructive than any other agricultural pest." He said it is found near railroad centers where it drops out of bedding and packing in freight cars. Larkin said the Department of Agriculture has set mere than • 6,000 traps around the state And , baited them with foods that attract the beetle. "That way we can find them and delimit areas," he said. The division of plant Industrie! will eradicate the beetle by spray* ing a residual pesticide In trouble areas this fall. Airplanes will ne used to spray large fields, whtlfl hand pumps will be used in smaller areas. The chemical soaks into the ground and has no effect on the flying insects, Larkin said. But in the winter when the bugs become grubs so they can hibernate in the ground, the pesticide will take effect. He said the Illinois Natural History Field Survey .sprayed the chemical in the Iroquois County area and "five years later there have been no live grubs found in the ground. In Indiana, just over the Illinois border, the live grubs were found where no tests were made." Larkin said the program could eliminate the beetle once and for all in Illinois along with other measures to keep the bug out of the state.

The action was taken as part of a move to decrease the number of children who die from eating paint chips containing lead. Mayor Richard J. Daley was urged in a telegram from the Illinois Council for Mentally Retarded Children Wednesday to declare a state of emergency and call a conference of medical and citizens' groups to help solve the problem. The council said there have been 11 deaths from lead poisoning and 43 other cases at Cook County Hospital so far this year compared with 9 deaths and 40 cases during all of 1962. Brain damage and mental retardation, the council said, will "reach a record-breaking epidemic stage before the summer is over." ler, Mrs. J. L. Hamilton, Monmouth; Mrs. Mabel McOlgan, Oquawka.
