Bank Buys Strand Property Expansion Is Planned For Future MONMOUTH—Merton Bowden, president of the Monmouth Trust & Savings Bank, announced late Tuesday afternoon that the bank had acquired the Strand property located at West First Avenue and South A Street. In the early 1900's Charles E. Strand purchased the site from J. D. Diffenbaugh and the present building was later erected and used as a bakery for more than 40 years. The company went out of business a few years ago. Bowden stated the site will be used for expansion purposes by the bank. However, plans for expansion are not for the immediate future. Bowden said a definite decision would be made in the spring regarding the demolition of the present building and the site would be cleared for bank customer off street parking. Since Strand closed, the small one story building at the east side of the larger structure has been occupied by Elmer's Meat Market and will continue to be until the owner locates other quarters. Prices for Broilers Are Showing Hike WASHINGTON (UPD-The Agriculture Department said today the outlook for prices of broiler chickens has brightened considerably during the past few weeks. Earlier in the year, the department had been warning of a potential buildup in supplies with sharply lower prices coming late this winter and early next year. Now, the picture has improved. The department said in a report on the poultry and egg situation that broiler production for the rest of 1963 will be about the same as during the same period last year. Prices to producers through December are expected to average a little below last year 's level of about 15 cents a pound. MONMOUTH RoMftifttf littil Cofrtipondtn! SOt ft H Si.

Between 30,000 and 50,000 Americans soon will be golfing, fishing, camping, and engaging in other outdoor sports under a new Agriculture Department lending program. The figure was reported today by the department in a progress report on the new loan program. There are indications that the pace of the lending may increase substantially in the future. To date, the department has loaned about $2.3 million, under the program. The Farmers Home Administration was given authority by Congress in 1962 to enter the field of lending to finance farm and community recreation enterprises. Note First Loan The first loan was made in November of last year. Through August of this year, the department said, a total of 115 loans were made—95 to individual farmers for about $700,000 and 20 loans totalling $1.5 million to non-profit associations formed by farmers and other rural people. Individual farmers are using the loans to develop profit-making recreation facilities. The Agriculture Department estimates that the new enterprises will boost the income of the farmers by an average of $2,000 for each farm every year. The new enterprises range from vacation cabins through to swimming pools, hunting facilities, marinas, and picnic and camping areas. Loans to non-profit rural associations are being used mostly to build golf courses or clubs which combine swimming and golf facilities. Mr. and Mrs. Lavern R.

Outlook Looks Good Gross national product will reach $582 billion in 1963, according to Dell Wilkens, farm management specialist at the University of Illinois. Wilkens told the Warren County annual livestock outlook meeting Sept. 19 that the demand situation in general is very good. Inventories are not building up. Forty per cent of new houses being built are apartments. Personal consumption is up $17 billion in 1963 over tho previous year. Private investment is up $2 billion, government spending is up $8 billion over the previous year. He estimated that if the tax cut becomes a reality that personal consumption will go up another $14 billion over the 1963 figures. Cattle Markets Steady Cattle marketing is about the same as it was two years ago, according to Gray Daly of the Illinois Livestock Producers Association, who spoke at the outlook session. Cattle are being marketed at heavier weights which is a disadvantage to the producer. Again the cost of gain is important in making decisions on buying feeder replacements. Daly said cattle on feed amount to 117 more than a year ago. He suggested that cattle feeders market the steers at a lighter weight. For example, steers at 1,000-1,050 pounds and heifers at 900-950. Feeder cattle replacements, Daly suggested, that the lightweights are the best buy. He indicated that choice calves today arc selling around the $29 to $31 bracket. Heifers would be about $2 under this figure. When heifers drop more than $2.50 below steers they are a good buy, according to Daly. He indicated that they expected more carry-over by the ranchers in the coming year. He further suggested that it would be wise to stagger buying of cattle, that is to buy some now at the going prices and some at a later date rather than all at once.
