ANN HOSPITAL Kossuth bean support price set at S2.46 Prices for 1966 crop-soybeans in Kossuth will be supported at an average of $2.46 per bushel, lichard I. Anderson, chairman, ASCS, has announced. The counly rate reflects the ncrease announced earlier this fear in the national average upport rate—from $2.25 to 12.50—as well as changing com >etitive market price relation hips throughout the soybean producing areas. An increase in export demand has brought about changes in market price relationships. Fo nstance, the increased move ment of soybeans for expor Tom Duluth-Superior and iron Toledo have tended to increas relative market prices in Min nesota and Ohio. Changes ii milling capacity also hav changed the competitive marke price relationships in som areas. Premiums and discounts are the same as for the 1965 crop. Price-support of 1966-crop-soybeans will be available to producers through loans on warehouse-and farnvstored soybeans and through purchases. Loans will be available through June 30, 1967. They will mature on demand but not later than July 31, 1967. Youngsters enjoy antique car show August 31 — Susan Griffin, Algona, medical.
