REPUBLIC CITY A*S2 The Afltbtui Republic E REPUBLIC - MAIL Phocnk, Sit., Jon* 30, ii?3 Raw farm produce up 6% in months 38% in year Rejected t of A applicant asks high court ruling United Press International *•' * « $ 1 I I I * I «* I WASHINGTON - Prices for raw farm products, which remain uncontrolled despite the June 13 freeze on food, surged up 6 per cent in the month ending June 15, the Agriculture Department reported Friday. The gain carried farm prices to another record, 38 per cent more than a year earlier. Price records were set for soybeans and cattle and strong increases were registered for grains. The increases underline the squeeze between raw-product costs and controlled food prices which has brought warnings that supplies of some foods, like poultry, may decline unless the .price freeze is loosened soon. The monthly Agriculture Department price report says higher prices for soybeans, corn hogs, potatoes, wheat and eggs were the chief contributors to the June price leap, which followed a 4 per cent gain in April. An overall index of livestock prices increased 3 per cent and was 33 per cent more than a year earlier. Soybeans, a vital raw material for producing poultry, pork and other livestock, increased to a record farm price average of $10 a bushel June 15, up $1.73 from a month earlier and triple the year-earlier price of $3.32 a bushel. In an effort to ease the pinch imposed on poultry and livestock farmers — many of whom said they face heavy losses and will have to trim production — the government moved Wednesday to increase domestic supplies by placing controls on exports of soybeans and cottonseed products. This action and recent curb commodity futures trading has brought soybean prices down in recent days. Hog prices leaped to $37.20 per hundredweight June 15, up $2 from May and $10.40, more than a year ago, but still $1.10 less than the record set in March. Cattle prices increased only 30 cents from May 15 to reach $43.80 a hundredweight. But this was enough to set a record and was far more than the year- earlier price of $34.50. In the grains, com increased 38 cents a bushel to $1.99. This was 57 cents a bushel more than mid-April and 86 cents more than a year earlier. Wheat, reaching the highest level in more than a quarter century, increased from $2.15 a bushel in May to $2.43 June 15, compared with $1.33 a year earlier. Egg prices set a record, jumping 5.6 cents a dozen from May to reach 50.6 cents in mid-June compared with 27.7 cents a year earlier. An index of prices for potatoes, sweet potatoes and dry beans increased 30 per cent for the month, mainly because potatoes reached $6.18 per hundredweight — the most in more than 50'years and 33 per cent more than a month earlier. Sweet potatoes and dry beans set records and the combined index was more than double the year-ago level. The report also notes the index of oilseed crops set a record for the fifth consecutive month; the feed-grain and hay index increased 15 per cent; the poultry-egg index increased 8 per cent for the month and was 76 per cent more than a year ago. The report shows farmers' costs increased 2 per cent during the month and were 16 per cent more than a year earlier. This brought prices to 88 per cent of the traditional "fair earning power" parity standard, compared with 85 per cent a month ago and 74 per cent a year ago. The State supreme Court has been asked to compel state university officials to hold a hearing for a rejected appli- •cation for admission to medical college. The unsuccessful applicant was David L. Payne, 25-year- old graduate of Mesa High School and Arizona State University. In a petition to be heard by the high court at 10 a.m, July 10, his attorneys contend the University of Arizona accepted 20 other medical students with lower rankings than Payne's, computed from grade points, admission tests, references and interviews. A student turned away under such circumstances is entitled to urge his case for ad- mission in a hearing before university authorities, the petition asserts.

United Press International •freee council also said the covers items sold on bases and in government exchanges, both in the united States and overseas. :*|The trading-stamp question ejirbse since stores pay stamp companies for the right to of- ifer them to customers. VJhen Collected in sufficient quantities, the stamps can be exchanged for merchandise. i^The idea is to lure enough additional business to offset the cost of the promotion, but many stores also mark up prices to reflect the cost of the stamps. 'V- , ;; Cutting out stamps would reduce this expense item but tjie retailers can only do it "if they pass on the value of the stamps to their customers in the form of lower prices on their merchandise," the council ruled. Wavapai court told to remedy accounting flaws -'State Auditor General Ira 0 s m a n has recommended fhat the Yavapai County Superior Court remedy multiple weaknesses in its accounts. % the court's records of funds repaid by criminals to their Victims were found to be in- fdequate or nonexistent, Osman reported. '..'• He cited six weaknesses in the court's control of furniture, equipment and law- books, plus two weaknesses in processing jury fee payments. Osman added that $800 in capital outlays had been mis- classified as reporter's supplies and expenses. But he commended the court for Commencing accounting improvements. fh Women hii;ed to run |0«ton street cleaner t NEWTON, Kan. (AP) - Mrs.parlene Esau and Mrs. J»nice Jones have been hired as the first women operators df the city's 10-ton street Sleepers and street flusher. ''"My husband told me (in |fst) he'de heard a rumor the gity had hired hippies to oper- l(e the (street sweepers," said fj-year-old Mrs. Jones. "I s someone saw us operat- them and thought we men with long hair." The council said merchants either can lower the price of everything they sell by the value of the stamps, or can deduct the value of the stamps from the prices of the items when the customer pays for his purchase. If retailers choose the second approach, they must place signs at each cash register advising customers that stamps have been discontinued. The council also said merchants must compute the value of the stamps by how much they bring when redeemed, not the cost to the retailer. Lawn Sprinkling Systems ARIZONA IRRIGATION CO. 2514 E.
