Farm Market Trends Are Appraised Golesburo Register-Moil, Golesburo, 111, Saturday, Auf. 3. 1963 9 Ry SUSAN K. POLLOCK United Preis fiteraatteMl Wheat farmers seem to be having a tough time making.the government understand what they want in the way of legislation for the lflM crop. President Charles B. Shuman of the American Farm Bureau said this week there appears to be a deliberate campaign among "seme pundits along the Potomac" to misinterpret the results of the May 21 wheat vote. The fact that farmers rejected a bill of high support prices and strong controls doesn't necessarily mean they're eyeing a program with the same high supports and no controls, Shuman asserted. "Farmers voted against a government supply-management program in order to secure a sensible Wheat program with price supports related to the market price and one which would give them an opportunity to make the management decision on their opera* tions," the farm chief said. Eyes Ideal Props The ideal price support would "reflect the economic forces of supply and demand," he said. The Department of Agriculture has evidently taken the hint faster than Congress. Kenneth M. Birhead, an assistant to USDA Secretary Orville L. Freeman, said his department proposed legislation designed to "present the wheat farmers with a supply management program that would increase their income, that would reduce the excess stocks of wheat on hand, and that would reduce the cost to taxpayers!' of such a program. "The wheat farmers of the nation, casting one of the largest referendum votes in history, made a very clear choice. We have had very little indication from wheat farmers that they are pressing for any kind of new program," he said. As of this week, the wheat subcommittee of the House Agriculture Committee was meeting behind closed doors to examine "the feasibility of trying to get wheat legislation for 1964." were scoffing recently at the nation's weight watchers. The group of IS Poland China hogs, owned by Oscar W. Anderson and Sons of Leland, gobbled up the title of "world's fastest-growing pigs." They topped the previous record by putting on 210 pounds by an average of 123.3 days. The program requires testing 15 pigs less than 60 days old and feeding them until they reach market weight of between 200 and 215 pounds. It took the old record holders 136 days to reach 210 pounds.

THRU AUC. 7, 1963 Lawmaker Raps Agency For 'Embargo' WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Paul Find ley, R - 111., has charged that the Agriculture Department "is imposing financial sanctions upon Midwestern wheat growers" who voted against the administration's wheat program in the May referendum. Findley, of Pittsfield, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said Friday that this is being done by the department by placing a "virtual embargo" upon sales of soft red winter wheat abroad for foreign currency. Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan are among producers of this type of wheat. Findley said in a statement: "Recent purchase authorizations issued to recipient nations specify that they must buy only hard spring or winter wheat, soft white wheat or mixed wheat. Soft red winter wheat is specifically and deliberately excluded. "This is being done despite the fact that many of the importing countries would prefer soft red wheat, both because it is priced lower and in many instances better suits their needs." Findley said Midwestern wheat growers want no bail-out by the government but that they do want an equal opportunity to seek foreign markets on a competitive price and quality basis with wheat growers of the Great Plains and western areas. Welcome Water A welcome reversal of the precipitation trend in 1962 produced ample irrigation supplies for most major agricultural areas of the western states of the union, according to the Britannica Book of the Year. Grain futures traded narrowly this week on the Board of Trade. All grain derived support from light receipts and higher cash markets. Soybeans and corn end' ed slightly lower on good crop and weather news. Belief that hedging had ended, word that country selling was about over and demand from millers and exporters boosted wheat. Oats and fye were slightly higher with wheat. Chicago wholesale grade eggs lost Vz to 3Mt cents this week. Live poultry sold unchanged to 1 cent lower, cheese mostly unchanged with instance fractionally lower and butter unchanged to slightly higher. Potatoes and onions traded lower although potatoes managed to gain some ground at mid-week. KNOXVILLE MRS. ANNABEL PETERSON CORRESPONDENT Office hours, 7-9 a.m. 4 -6 p.m. Horn* Address: 210 N.
