I. Anderson, chairman of the ASC committee. The overall price support for corn, barley, and grain sorghum will be the same for 1965 as for 1964. A larger proportion of the support will be in payment form to feed grain program participants, with some reduction in the average loan rate for all three feed grains. Success depends on participation high enough to offset program costs by a reduction in the public investment in government feed grain inventories. Objectives ^continue to include strengthening farm income and bringing feeci grain surpluses down to reasonable levels. The higher price-support payment and lower loan rate are aimed at encouraging participation by widening the margin between returns lor participators and non-participators. By individual grains, the 1965 national average total price-support and the loan and payment division are: Corn, $1.25 per bushel ($1.05 loan, 20-ccnt payment); barley, 96 cents per bushel (80-cent loan, 16-cent payment); grain sorghum, $2 per cwt. ($1,65 loan, 35-cent payment). The 1964 total supports were the same as 1965, but the division was: Corn, $1.10 loan, 15- cent payment; barley, 84-cent loan, 12-cent payment; grain sorghum, $1.77 loan, 23-cent payment. The greater reduction in the 1965 grain sorghum loan rate, which is offset by a higher payment rate, is needed to bring grain sorghum price-support loan values more in line with market prices of recent years. The acreage substitution feature for wheat and feed grain acreage is new to the feed grain program for 1965, and producers will have a more flexible Also 764,394 in building permits issued Last year saw nearly a million dollars worth of improvements by the Algona Municipal Industries, and also a total of $764,394 in building permits were issued lor local construction projects.

The estimated electric expansion for 1965 will total some $150,000. The water department had a total expansion cost of $186,564, with the big item the water filter plant improvement at $165,000; 4687 feet of three- quarter to 8-inch water mains at $19,964; and four new fire hydrants at $1,600. Main extensions planned for 1965 will cost an estimated $100,000. THE STREET department completed 14 blocks of curb and gutter at a cost of some $25,000; /5 blocks of seal coating at $7,500; a half mile of blacktop- at $6,000; and railroad .crossing improvements at $4,000. Planned for 1965 are 40 blocks of seal coating and 15 blocks of curb and gutter plus improved otf-street parking improvements. The park board spent $4,OOQ on the planned 5-phase park improvements estimated at $100,000* and the program will be continued in 1965. • The airport commission extended the old runway, added lights and resealed the entire runway at a cost of $14,000.
