(TIMESpholo by Fay Gray) Wheat And Corn Crops Fall Below Original Estimates By DON KENDALL AP Farm .Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- This year's wheat and corn crops, eagerly sought by the Nixon administration as long-range food price dampeners for consumers, are turning out to be Legislators (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) der the state teacher retirement system. It appeared that the college construction appropriations to be approved by the legislature would not include the $4.8 million Bumpers added this week to his earlier special session requests. The $4.8 million reflected an additional 12 per cent of the estimated total project cost, but none of the college construction appropriation bills approved by either chamber Thursday contained .the additional money. The revenue stabilization bill was amended in the Senate to provide funding for the $4.8 million and all the other admin. istration requests for higher e d u c a t i o n construction b y creating a higher education construction fund which would receive $8.3 million from the interest on state investments plus 'an ancicipated $16 million that would have gone into the Future Operations Reserve Fund. This amendment also was de signed by supporters of the larger college construction ap propriation bills to eliminate any doubt about the number o votes necessary to pass the bills. House Speaker G. W "Buddy" Turner of Pine Blufl ruled this week that the bills needed only a simple majorit; vote since the Constitution pro vides that standard for approv al of education appropriations However, Marcus Halbrook, di rector of the Legislative Coun cil, said that applied only to ap propriations of money collects for educational purposes. The college construction appropria tion bills would have taken money from state general reve nue surpluses not collected spe cifically for education. Some legislators believed tha the action making the future operations reserve an "educa tion construction fund" and de signaling interest income fo college construction would avoi any legal problem. The $4.8 million addition raised Bumpers' college con · sfruction requests to about $26. million, including $10.3 millio for the University of Arkansa Medical Center in Little Rock. The Public School Fund wi! get 62 per cent of the mone for ongoing programs resuliin from the special session, in eluding $4.5 million to expan the kindergarten program-, $1. million for the free textboo program, $3 million for add tional public school trans portation aid and the purchas of buses, $500,000 in additiona aid for the poorest school di tricts, plus the teachers' salar increases.

PiTiBL* Di ADVANCT ore temperamental than any- e figured. The Agriculture Department id Thursday that 1974 wheat 'eduction now is estimated at record of more than 1.9 bil- on bushels. But officials .said ought in some areas, too uch rain others and plant dis- ase had taken a toll. In all, the report showed the ew estimate was down 149 illion bushels from what SDA forecast on June 24.That eans the United States will ave much less wheat on hand year from now than had been ounted on. Further, corn farmers have een swamped by wet weather nd late planting which has unted the crops' growth. So much wheat has been sold /erseas -- about 2.3 billion usbels since mid-1972 -- that tie reserve on July 1 was down 217 million bushels, the least 26 years. Prices, averaging st per bushel on the farm month, were nearly ippled from two years ago. Currently, USDA expects 1.86 illion bushels will be needed ir domestic and export re- uirements in 1974-75. Thus, if those figures are-ac- urate.,, ^the huge 1974 wheat rop will fade to only 65 million ushels' left over by July 1 next ear. But one of the main concerns ow is corn, the kety U.S. grain rop, since it provides most of he livestock feed needed to urn out basic consumer food :ems. The 1974 harvest will be large factor in determining ?hat consumers will have to ay for food through all of next 'ear. The problem in much of the 'orn Belt this year stemmed rom a late spring and ex- essive rain at crucial planting imes. Although the latest corn read- ng by USDA calls for a record rop of 6.4 billion bushels -- om-pared with 5.7 billion last ear -- many people think it vill be far less. If so, and export and donies- ic demands hold up, the Crunch will be continued high irices for livestock feed next vinter and possible further lowdowns in meat, poultry and 'airy production.

Carol Vance said hursday he plans to wind up ith testimony -from parents of ur of the victims as well as a subdivision regulations enforced by the city and the county. Gitelman said that when the commission revised the city subdivision regulations in 1970, "the commission then felt that to require the full set of city specifications for subdivisions that would not, in the forseeable future,' come within the city limits would, perhaps, be a people out in the hardship on county." Gitelman said, however, that developers who bought property just outside 'the city limits and developed substandard subdivisions would be treating the citizens of Fayetteville "in an grossly unfair manor." STATE LAW State law permits the city to enforce its jurisdiction within the' five mile limit', if it so desifes, The main purpose of this meeting was' to obtain a basic idea of just how far the city wished to extend its authority.

Gitelman said he r felt personally that the city should trim back" : on : tlie -five"mile : limit, possibly 'as' far as the Growth Area established some time ago for water and sewer projects. Growth Area covers an approximate area, about two and a half miles wide around the city instead of the five miles. ALLOWS FOR GROWTH Fayetteville Mayor Russell Purdy commented that the five miles would probably, in his estimate, allow the city to grow fpt the next 40 years and that a" more clearly defined smaller a'rea - might - be helpful. He added, however, that should f u t u r e expansion become necessary, it may become desirable to restore the full five mile limit. Gitelman proposed that a resolution he presented at the August 13 meeting of the commission which would redefine the city's extraterritorial jurisdiction to the Growth Area boundaries. At that time, Gitelman said, a public hearing will je held in order that interested citizens may be notified.
