(AP)-The 1963 Illinois State Fair will swing open its gates for a 10-day run Aug. 9 apparently free from the internal strife and external criticism which shrouded it a year ago. In the new and harmonious atmosphere, officials hope to make the event the most successful in the fair's 111-year history. Space for concession stands has long been sold out, ticket sales are running ahead of last year and entries are "up in scores of divisions. Attendance, says fair manager Franklin Rust, could hit the coveted one million mark. This would top by 150,000, Jhe crowd lured at last year's exposition. Missing from the fair will be Ralph Bradley, Springfield, who was removed by Gov. Otto Kerner as agriculture director in January because of a running feud with Rust over fair policies. Kerner has given Rust a free hand in directing the exposition. And few could be more pleased with the move than Bradley's successor, Robert Schneider. He said recently he was delighted that Rust had been put in sole charge of the fair. Also missing this year are the verbal blasts which were leveled at the fair a year ago when the state was experiencing a financial pinch. Several economy- Aylsworth Property Is Put in Trust MONMOUTH — John J. Kritzer, a Monmouth attorney, was named trustee of the estate of Ivan S.

Mrs. Voorhees was named executrix of her husband's will. minded foes suggested the fair's activities be sharply curtailed. Their cricitism had little, if any, effect. During opening day ceremonies, Kerner is to dedicate a new $1 million junior livestock building More than $550,000 will be awarded in livestock competition alone. Thousands of dollars more will be presented in nonagricultural events. Rust said the grand parade on opening day, designated as Children and Youth and Agricultural Day, will be the largest ever. More than 1,300 baton twirlers and 1,500 Boy Scouts and other youths are slated to participate. Days also have been set aside to honor veterans, women, senior citizens and central Illinois. Politicians will take over two days- Republican Day Aug. 14 and Governor's Day Aug. 15. Although youth and agriculture will capture the limelight as in past expositions, the harness, motorcycle and auto racing programs are expected to do their share in attracting thousands to the fair. Trotters and pacers will compete for purses totaling $408,000 during a six-day racing program. On hand for auto racing fans Aug. 17 will be some of the biggest names in the business, including Jim Hurtubise, winner of the last two Illinois State Fair 100-Mile National Championships.

MARTIN WASHINGTON (AP)-The Agriculture Department said today the United States is one of the safest countries in the world in which to raise livestock and poultry due to a federal system of animal inspection and quaran* tine. A report on the system said America's "seemingly limitless supply of wholesome meat and meat products, eggs, milk and other dairy products attests to this fact." Federal inspection and quarantine regulates the importation of animals and poultry, animal and poultry products and by-products, hay, straw, and animal casings for the purpose of keeping out foreign diseses that might im perii the nation's $18 billion livestock industry and $3 billion poultry industry. The report explained that this country's major line of defense against importation of dread livestock diseases are veterinarians at U.S. ports of entry, both for ships and planes. Their jobs is to intercept diseased animals or carriers of diseases. Many animals permitted to be brought in must be kept at quarantine stations for designated periods to determine their health conditions. Laws bar imports of cattle, sheep and other domestic ruminant and swine from any country where foot - and * mouth and rinderpest diseases exist. Zoo animals are permitted to be imported only under the most stringent of regulations and sur veillance. Most of these animals must be held in what amounts to permanent quarantine in the zoos WASHINGTON <AP) - A gov ernment report on the honey bee situation indicated today that his year's honey production may dip below that of last year. It said there were 5,559,000 colonies of bees July l.and increase of.l per cent over last year and 3 per cent above the 1957-61 average. But the condition of the colonies was reported at 85 per cent of normal, compared with 87 per cent a year ago. Likewise, the condition of nectar plants, at 75 per cent of normal, was down from last year's 82 per cent, reflecting poor weather conditions in some areas. Colony losses during the winter were reported at 16 per cent compared with 15 per cent a year earlier. WASHINGTON (AP)'-Prices of corn have been making almost phenomenal advances in the face of existing surpluses. Prices of this feed grain advanced 11 to 12 cents a bushel during the April-June quarter and during the first three weeks of July were 15 to 20 cents above a year ago. For example, No. 2 yellow corn at Chicago averaged $1.34 a bushel in July compared with $1.15 in the like month last year. Two factors have contributed heavily io this.price average: 1, an increase in demand for feed for larger animal numbers and for exports, and 2, a decline in the size of the surplus, virtually all of which is held by the government. The department has been allowing prices to move up mainly for the purpose of discouraging pverexpansion in livestock production, particularly hogs and commercial broilers. It could make increased quantities of government corn available to limit price advances. WASHINGTON (AP)-The Agriculture Department said today crops protected by federal crop insurance this year is at a record get protection against drought, floods, hail, freezes, storms and other natural disasters. Crops on 13 million acres were said to be covered this year. The insurance program operates in 1,096 court* ties in 38 states. Premiums paid this year were said to total about $28 million. Japan Meats Admitted to V. S* Import WASHINGTON (AP)--Thc United States today opened its markets to Japanese meats. The bars were lifted by action of the Agriculture Department which announced that Japan is free of the dread foot-and-mouth and rinderpest livestock diseases. Law prohibits imports from countries where these diseases exist. Meats imported from Japan must be processed in establishments meeting U.S. sanitary and inspection standards. The U.S. livestock industry has been protesting against imports, particularly lately when prices of high level of $470 million. This is a 30 per cent increase over 1962. fed cattle have been at levels By paying premiums, growers considerably below a year ago. Crop Insurance Totals $470 Million PIGTAIL PRIZE will be sought at Illinois State Fair by Jody Martin, 8, of Monmouth, whose 3- year-old brother Billy is showing length of her hair with a yardstick in the picture. Her 21- inch-long tresses have not been cut "for as long as I can remember," Jody says. The children's parents are Mr. and Mrs. C. William Martin, 427 N. Sixth St., and Jody will be a third-grader at Garfield School this fall. Pigtail contest at state fair in Springfield is scheduled Aug. 9. Cattlemen Get Good News, Then Bad Reports Show Up By L. H. SIMERL (Agricultural Economist) Cattlemen got both good news and bad in July. The good news was the strong recovery of cattle prices in the first two weeks. The bad news was that there were 11 per cent more cattle in feedlots on July 1 than there had been a year earlier. But the 11 per cent overall increase does not tell the story. The number of cattle weighing over 1,100 pounds was up 25 per cent, and the number weighing 900 to 1.100 pounds was up 15 per cent. And there were 11 per cent more cattle in the 700- to 900- pound weight bracket. With this kind of beef in the feedlots, market supplies will continue well over year-before levels for several months. This and o:her prospective market conditions seem likely to hold cattle prices well below those of last fall. Record Number on Jobs There are some favorable aspects, too, in the cattle outlook. Most important is the general, business situation. Over 70 million people have jobs, a record number. Industrial production has risen sharply in the past four months, and in June was 5 per cent above the year before. People have more money than ever before. Personal incomes exceed $460 billion a year compared with about $442 billion last summer. Business activity has enough momentum to keep it expanding through the third quarter, and *o maintain a high level in the fourth quarter. Prospective supplies of competitive meats are not excessive. The spring pig crop was only 1 per cent larger than that of 19l>2. Although prospective supplies of broilers for the next (i0 days are up 6 to 8 per cent, the increase will not seriously threaten tiie ; beef market. | Now let's get back to that re- | port of cattle on feed July 1. It showed that the number of cattle and calves on feed totaled 6,830,000 herd. This estimate was for the 28 major cattle feeding states. Indicate Marketings Reports from cattle feeders in dicated that they would market about 3,792,000 head of their July 1 inventory before Oct. 1. This number would be 9 per cent more than they marketed in the similar period a year ago. And they listed the number of cattle that had been on feed more than six months on July 1 at 2,183,000 head, 28 per cent more than the year before. The number on feed three to six months was 2.125.000. up only 2 per cent. And the number that had been fed less than three months was 2.522.000, up 7 per cent. Here's something unusual to think about: The cornbelt shows a biuger increase in cattle feeding than do the The 12 north central .states had 4.365.000 head of cattle on feed. 13 per cent .more than the year before. The 11 Western states had 1.984.000 on feed, up only 7 per cent. Does this mean that the corn- belt farmer can outlast the big western operator ii. the Avon PTA Maps Sessions For New Year AVON—The executive board of the Avon PTA has announced that PTA meeting for the coming school year will be held at 8 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the following months: September, October, January, March, April and May.
