HOUSING AUTHORITY OF CITY OF HOPE Mike Kelly, Executive Director 12-17-1977 Despite strike, experts see banner year in farm output WASHINGTON (AP> - Despite attempts by American Agriculture to boost commodity prices by encouraging a nationwide strike, the odds favor another year of spectacular farm production and a tighter rein on farm income. The Agriculture Department says that by the end of 1978, farmers will be even more deeply in debt and thai land prices, after soaring for years, will have cooled off substantially. Barring bad wpnther next spring and summer, department experts say that 1978 looks like another banner year in terms of farm output. According to department economists, the livestock sector is expected to continue its expansion, largely because of relatively cheap com and other feed, including: —Four to 5 percent more Rrain-fed entile going to slaughter plants, compared with this year.

The outlook for 1978 crop production is much more uncertain. Wheat farmers are faced with a 20 percent acreage set- aside program in order to qualify for 1978 federal price support benefits, and a 10 percent program has tentatively been announced for corn. "While acreage may be cut in 1978, production inputs such as pesticides and fertilizer are expected to be In ample supply and should therefore contribute to large crop output," says the department's Economic Research Service. "Fertilizer application rates are expected to Increase on acres planted and no supply problems are indicated for either diesel or gasoline for the coming year." As in any year, because so many different commodities are involved, not all farmers will do well or poorly in 1978. But the department experts agree, apparently, that net farm income Is not expected to gain much, If at all, from this year. The most recent measurement points to a 1977 net farm Income — the amount fanners have left over after paying expenses - of about $20 billion. It was $21.9 billion In 1976. It is this point with which the group calling Itself American Agriculture Is mostly concerned. The cash flow of fann- ers has been hurt the moat by depreased market prices, mainly of grain, it says. If farmers refuse to sell crops and not buy anything but essential products, market prices will go up, or else the government will have to step in with a better plan to help Improve thetr Incomes, the Colorado-based group says. But the department. Including Agriculture Secretary Bob Bergland, assumes the strike will not be effective. Thus, the financial balance sheet for farmers collectively In the coning year shows some grim statistics but also a few bright spots, nocortUng to the experts. The grimmest figure, of course, has not been officially projected by the department, but some experts believe that 1978 net farm income probably will not improve from this year's $20 billion. Meanwhile, on paper, at least, fanners continue to amnss wealth In the form of land and other property associated with their business. This Jan. 1, according to the department, total U.S. farm assets are expected to be worth $729.6 billion, up 9 percent from $670.9 billion at the beginning of 1977. The assets are dominated by real estate valued at $546.9 billion, up from $497.2 billion last Jan. 1, but they also Include bank deposits and currency estimated at a record of $18.4 billion, up from $15.9 billion last Jan, 1, But against those record assets, the department says that this Jan. 1 farmers will owe a record of $118.7 billion, up from $102.7 billion last Jan. 1, a record climb for a single year of $18 billion. When total debt Is deducted from assets, farmers now have on equity in their holdings of a record $610.9 billion, compared with $568.2 billion last Jan. 1, according to the report. That was a gain during the year of $42.7 billion. Thus, despite the record climb In farm debt this year of $16 billion, the equity of farm- era — what they would have left If they settled their bills — rose much more rapidly. The kicker Is, however, that thia ia a paper indicator and does not tell much about the financial well-being of individuals. LOS CANGELES C(AP) — While taking the waters in Nashville last week, I heard a new daily TV show will start soon at Opryland, home of country music's Grand Ole Opry. Bayron Binkiey confirmed it later. "It'll be a Nashville-flavored talk and music show, 50 per cent talk, 50 per cent music," said Binkiey, producer of the one-hour series, "Nashville Scene," which premieres nationally Jan. 2. It'll air Mondays through Fridays. Its guests, mostly country music stars, may understandably yawn now and then. Binkiey says each day's broadcast will start at 5 a.m. in Nashville. The idea, he says, is to air "Nashville Scene" at 6 a.m. in each of the nation's time zones. Eastern areas will get it live, while other regions — Nashville included — get It on a tape-delay each dawn. The show's host hasn't made the cover of "People" yet, but he's fairly well-known in country music and Tennessee political circles. He's T. Tommy Cutrer, a former Grand Ole Opry announcer, a former disc Jockey at Nashvile station WSM — which airs the Opry and owns Opryland — and a former candidate for Congress, Binkiey said. The guests will include such famed folk as Merle Haggard, Tom T. Hall, Barbara Mandrell and Opry legend Roy Acuff, he added. "We'll primarily be using Nashville-based people, but we'll also nave guests from other areas who've come to Nashville to record or do movies and television shows," Binkiey said by phone from Naahille. The show won't be on CBS, NBC or ABC. It's being aired over a special satellite and land-line network set up by Los Angeles-based Robert C. Wold Co., which created a similar network for the David Frost- Richard Nixon interview shows earlier this year. Robert Dudley, head of U.S. TV Network, a New York firm sellng "Nashville Scene," emphasized that the series isn't intended as a country-cousin competitor of NBC'a "Today" or ABC's morning show. "No, It's not," he said, noting that his program's 6 a.m. reveille ia a full hour before the start of network morning shows. Okay, but why such an early hour? Why not at night or late afternoon? "Well, we found the beat time for country and Western on radio la from five to eight In the morning," he said. "I don't know why. It might be that country music fans simply are earlier risers. "But that's the pattern on radio. And very few TV stations are broadcasting at that (6 a.m.) time in the morning, and we felt it was easier to get clearances at that hour." So far, 48 stations have signed up for "Nashville Scene," moat In Southern and Midwestern markets, he said. He has yet to crack the nation's top two markets — here and New York — but he hopes to. Is he finding resistance to a show of country music and talk? "No, I think frankly the main resistance we're having Is that people feel it's an impossible task for us to feed a live one- hour show five days a week," Dudley replied "No one agrees with that out of Nashville, so we hope they're right." Try, Try Again Most people change occupations at least once in their working lives, The Conference Board notes. In fact, between 1965 and 1970 alone, almost one-third of the work force switched fields or job categories. The desire for increased earnings, better working conditions or more interesting work and the lack of opportunity in a particular field are key reasons for the change. Due to less-specialized skills and lower pay, younger workers are the most mobile. Two out of three persons switch- Ing occupations are under 33. Still, department experts say It la one of many valid Indicators used In judging how farmers arc doing. Another one la the "debt-to-equity" ratio which measure* how much farmers owe against what they own outright. Thus, as of Jan. 1 the ratio la expected to be 19.4, the highest since It was 19.6 on Jan. 1,1973, the start of the best yedr farmers ever had In terms of net farm Income — some |29.9 bU- lion. Looking more than a year ahead, the agency said total farm assets are expected to climb further next year and that by Jan. 1, 1979, should total $782.4 billion, a 7 percent Increase against a 9 percent climb this year. "Real estate vn'Uics nre projected to Increase by rt potvsnt during 1978," the report snUl, "This would be substantially leas than the 10 percent Increase now expected for 1977." But farm debt is expected to gain a further 12 percent to $133 billion by Jan. 1, 1979, from the $118.7 billion estimated this Jan. 1. The equity held by farmers In their land and other Investments ia expected to climb $38.5 billion to $649.4 billion a year from now. That would put the debt-to-«qulty ratio at 20.4 by Jan. 1,1979. Religious briefs LOS ANGELES (AP) - Way back in 1968, three English brothers broke Into American pop-rock with a new kind of music — an orchestral, plodding sort of rock balladecring — that produced two big hits and quickly made them stars. But rock music was a volatile art form In 1968, spinning by musical styles like a toy top; now toward complex, heavily instrumental pieces, then toward simple, often silly, melodic ditties. In a sense, it was dangerous to be a pop hit In 1968 — rock music was obviously making a move, and what was big then didn't seem likely to carry the same weight with audiences as the decade ended. So, the three English brothers, who called themselves the Bee Gees, seemed destined to go the way trod by most of the other big groups of 1968 — The Union Gap, The Lemon Pipers, the Box Tops, Ohio Express and, oh yea, The 1810 Kruitguni Co. (creators of that unforgettable hit, "1,2,3 Red Light"). The predicted revolutionary convulsions did indeed crane, shaking up pop-rock and hurl- Ing some of the aforementioned stars directly into oblivion. But the Bee Gees refused to go away. Nearly a decade and Lord, how many rock music changes later, the Bee Geea are still where they started — at the top. Their "How Deep la Your Love" has been made one of pop's biggest hita of the year, long after most of their contemporaries have gone into the dry cleaning business. "Three Dog night split up," laughed Barry Gibb recently, recalling some of the Bee Geea' former contemporaries, "so I guess we're the only trio left in the world — at least, I don't think there's another one going that's still making hit records." "Besides," added brother Barry, "we're brothers. ... There's kind of a seal there." The Bee Gees didn't sink under the weight of that slow, syrupy style diplayed in their first hits, "I've Gotta Get a Message to You" and "I Started a Joke;" in fact, the style carried them to further success in the '70s with "Lonely Days," "Run to Me" and "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?" And when it finally appeared their style was beginning to burden them, the Brothers Gibb passed the moat grueling test popular musicians ever face — they changed. They added funk and freshness to their sound when the times demanded, as demonstrated In 1975 with their hit "Jive Talttn'." "We wanted to move into an area of better, tighter rhythyms, and beconie more of a band than Just three broth- em." Burnt **M <t th* Hm«
