, JULV 18,1983 EVENING TELEGRAPH To Otter $1,2 Billion To Help Wheat WASHINGTON (AP)-The gov- ernmenl will offer growers of corn, barley and sorghum grain upwards of $1.2 billion in payments next year to make way for a lai-gcr feed market for wheat. |*or the first time in years, wtieat, which Is principally a food grain, will be grown free of gov. ertlmetit controls. At a referendum lasl May, producers rejected a new and tighter, control plan Offered by the administration. Because of this, officials expect n sharp increase in wheat production next year which could add to surpluses and depress grower prices and Incomes. But the Agriculture Department .hopes to minimize these possible impacts on wheat farmers by encouraging feed grain growers to reduce plantings sharply below levels of recent years, the drop in feed grain production would be met by the DO FALSE TEETH Rock, Slidt or Slip? fASlltTM, *n ImproTMl powdtr te b. ipr nU«t <m upptr or low* pUtM, field* felt* twth mor. nrmli In plko*.

Provisions of next year's version of the feed grain reduction program In effect since 1961 were announced Thursday by the Agriculture Department. For the first time in years, wheat next year will be grown free of mandatory acreage allotments and marketing quotas. Price supports for wheat were dropped to around $1.215 a hushel compared with $2 now. But they would be available only lo farmers who abided by wheat allotments set under the control program defeated at the referendum. Officials had predicted the wheat acreage will increase sharply and threaten an over-all increase in oversltpplies of all grains. Under the 1964 program, price supports for the feed grains will lolal the same as this year, bill the makeup of the supports will be changed. Next year the sup port loan rales will be $1.10 a bushel for corn compared with $1.07 this year; 84 cents a bushel for barley compared with 82 cents this'year and $1.17 per hundred- weighl for sorghum grain instead of $1.71.

The big change* in the feed grain program from this year is in the payments offered for diverting feed grain land from production. Maximum payment rales will go to those Who idle between 40 and 50 per cent of their feed grain base acres. Next year, a grower will be permitted to idle as much as.50 per cent of his feed grain acreage compared wild this year's maximum of 40 per cent. As was the case this year, a farmer must idle at least 20 per cent of his feed grain acreage in order to be eligible for any of the benefits of Ihc program. Next year, farmers who idle between 40 and 50 per per cent of their feed grain acreages will get payments computed by mi tiplying 50 per cent of the normal yield of the idled acres by their county support rale for the particular grain. Thus, a farm with a base feed grain acreage of 100 acres and with a noral yield of 60 bushels of corn an acre could idle 50 acres. He would get payments on 1,500 bushels of corn—30 bushels per acre for 50 acres. Should his county corn support rate be $1 his total payment for idleing half his feed grain land would be $1,500. This year, farmers who diverted the maximum possible—40 per cent of their feed grain base—got payments on the first 20 per cent of the idled acres determined by multiplying 20 per cent of the normal yield of those acres by the county support rate. Payments on the additional diverted acres were determined by multiplying 50 per cent of the normal yield of these additional acres by the county support rate. ' But, under next year's program, farmers who divert only 20 per cent will get payments determined in the same way as this year. However,. under the 1964 program, farmers who divert between 20 and 40 per cent of their base acreages will get payments on this portion of the diversion by multiplying the number of acres in this category by 50 per cent of the normal yield by the county support rale. , As in Ihe past, eligibility for payments and price supports will be based on the condition that farms- maintain their normal acreage in soli»cortserving crops or practices, including summer fallow'and idle land. This condition is designed to discourage the plowup of pasture or other land for additional grains. The department decided not to apply a so-called cross-compliance provision in the feed grain program. Officials had considered Issuing a regulation lhat feed grain growers must abide by wheat allotments sol under Ihe rejected wheal conlrol program in order lo get benefit of the feed grain program, Greene County Crufl Day Monday CARROLLTON — Mrs. Eloise Tholcn, Greene county home adviser, will have charge of "Craft Day" Monday at 2 p.m. in the Farm Bureau building.

Douglas, D-lll., and five other Democratic senators have told President Kennedy that special search is needed into the problems proposed railroad mergers would create in their area. Douglas and Sens.

(AP) Bonds totaling nearly $1.4 million have been placed against Negro demonstrators arrested during nearly six weeks of antisegrega- tion activity here. Negro leaders viewed the bond assessments as an attempt to break the demon slrntions which have occurred almost daily since June 9. Magistrate George T. Runey added to the total Thursday when he set bonds totaling $690,000 for 68 Negroes arrested on riot charges. The 68 were arrested Tuesday night, when six policemen and a fireman were injured, some by bricks thrown by Negroes demonstrating in front of the Charleston News and Courier Building. Runey ordered the Rev. I. De> Quincey Newman, state field secretary for_ the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and James Blake, an NAACP youth director, to post bail of $15,000 each. The other 66 were held under $10,000 bonds. Negro protest leaders had pledged property to cover bonds RD DEALER SPECIAL RED-HOT DEALS ON EVERY CAR IN STOCK . . . READY TO GO FOR YOUR SUMMER VACATION!

The senators to the President are concerned, they said, over the probable impact of pending merger proposals on the industrial and transporta tion future of the Midwest. They said answers also are needed to these important issues: —How much railroad plant will be left if the mergers are ap proved. —Whether the remaining facility would be adequate to meet and current and probable future needs of the Midwest's expanding population. —Whether the remaining railroad plant would be adequate to meet defense needs. Whether the merger would place too much control of mid- western transportation in too few hands to be in the public interest. The senators said the proposed merger of the Pennsylvania and New York Central railroads appears to concentrate the loss of facilities in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. They said, "...The merger exhibits the two railroads submitted to the Interstate Commerce Commission indicate that approx- the oral terminal operations would occur in these four states."
