Bills Aim to Ease Wheat Price Decline WASHINGTON (UPI)-Pressure is building up on the administration to ease next year's drop in wheat prices despite President Kennedy's attitude that the farmers asked for it when they voted down his price,support program in a referendum. Among those urging second thoughts are a number of farm state Democrats, including Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, Minn., assistant Senate majority leader. Humphrey is drafting a new wheat bill and predicted in an interview before leaving for Moscow to witness signing of the nuclear best ban that "there'll be some rethinking on this question in the administration within a month." A number of legislators of both parties have introduced various bills aimed at softening the price decline despite the expressed belief of administration farm spokesmen that Congress will not act. Opposed Administration Plan Wheat growers voted May 21 against the administration plan for mandatory production controls with high price supports for the 1964 crop. This meant that, with no new program, wheat price supports will drop from $2 a bushel this year to $1.25 next year. Even the reduced support price will be available only to growers who voluntarily comply with planting restrictions. A number of Republicans, headed by Reps. Albert H. Quie, Minn., Robert Dole, Kan. and Don L. Short, N.D., have proposed a program modeled on the existing plan which offers acreage-diversion payments and price supports to farmers who cut feed grain plantings. Sens. Spessard L. Holland, D- Fla.; George D. Aiken, R-Vt., and others have sponsored the American Farm Bureau Federation's plan to abolish all wheat-feed grain controls, set supports at comparatively low levels and set up a voluntary program of payments for non-use of acreage. Proposes Voluntary Program Sen. George D. McGovern, D- S.D., recently proposed converting the' acreage-limitation plan rejected last May 21 to a voluntary program with no cash marketing penalties for farmers who choose to ignore it. Humphrey's bill would be based in general on the existing program and would offer price supports above the currently scheduled 1964 level to farmers who voluntarily convert wheat acreage to other uses. The Minnesota Democrat believes legislation to head off the drop in prices is urgently needed before the 1964 crop of winter wheat is planted this fall. He said a sharp drop in wheat, income could damage the farm credit structure—and Democratic election prospects in farm states. We ' cannot content ourselves with doing nothing," he said. "The government has a responsibility because the prices of farm products are directly related to the general prosperity of the nation."

(UPD- Every available locksmith around here was put to work by police Sunday at 133 banks, jewelry stores, pharmacies and other establishments. A thief broke into the office of a local janitorial service and stole the keys to the firms. By LEO SHARP (Fulton County Farm Adviser) Productive use of outdated farm buildings or existing farm structures is a problem of many Pulton County Livestock producers. Many structurally sound barns, machine sheds, poultry houses and other buildings are not being used. This is because they were not designed for our present day farming operations. Last week Marvin Hall, extension specialist in agricultural engineering, Macomb, and I visited with three Fultort County farmers on the problems. We talked to George and Peter Bruketta, of Farmington, about utilizing and converting a building to shelled corn storage. This building had been built for a farm machinery storage operation.

On the Edwin Barrett farm, southwest of Lewistown, Hall provided plans for using the lower part of a new barn to feed out hogs. Part of it will also be used to farrow about 20 sows. Marvin Hall in offering suggestions in confinement systems of hog feeding or farrowing systems emphasizes these points: 1. Design an adequate venti­ lations system. A sow with a litter of eight pigs will give off one pound of water from their breath per hour or about three gallons per day. When it's extremely cold outside and there is not sufficient heat to keep the moisture from condensing and sufficient venti lation to take the moisture out of the building, the walls and ceil ing become dripping with water This, in turn, can cause pneu monia or other troubles in t h e hogs. Ideal conditions are to keep the humidity down to 80 per cent or less if possible. This requires usually extra heat above normal conditions in real cold weather, such as heat lamps or heat in the floor. Hogs in confinement or sows farrowing should have a temperature between 55 degrees and 65 degrees Fahrenheit in their building during cold . weather. In the summer, the building should have panels or windows to open for cross ventilation. List Otfier Practices 2. The building should be well insulated. Use a minimum of two inches to preferably four inches of rock wool or some ether type of insulation on the walls and ceiling. Have aluminum foil as A vapor barrier next to the hogs. Be sure and insulate the floor under the heating equipment with a solid insulating material. 3. Plan your floors for easy cleaning. An open pit covered with a grate and water under pressure with the proper slope for drainage in the floors is im« portant. The pit drain should be six to eight inches with a plug so that when the pit is full it will drain to a lagoon. This lagoon should be at least 4 feet and preferably much deeper and have 30 square feet of area per hog. 4. The pens should be small enough that they are well stocked with water close to the drain. The feed can be in self feeders or on a limited feeding time clock. These are some of the points to consider but if you have a building problem that requires special help contact your farm adviser's office. He will then arrange for a visit from Hall.
