Northwest Arkantat TIMES, Wed., July 24, FAYCTTIV1LLE, ARKANSAS Middleman's Share Of Food Dollar Rises, Farmer's Drops ;... Washington (AP) - For · every dollar spent last month on the groceries in the Agriculture Department's markelbas- ket, American farmers received 39.3 cents and the rest of the food industry received 60.7 cents. For farmers, it was the fifth consecutive monthly drop in their share of t h e grocery dollar, after one of the best years for farm income on record. It was the 1G monthly decline in the last 2',i years of major flux in the international farm economy. The figures were included in the regiyar markelbasket report, the USDA estimate of -what it costs to feed an urban, middle-income family of 3.2 persons domestically produced U.S. farm food for a year. The figures were $1,733 in May, $1,517 a year ago and $1,303 in June 1972. The report showed that retail prices dropped 0.1 per cent from May to June to a level 14.1 per cent above June 1973, while the middlemen's share rose 0.6 per cent to a breadth 28.2 per cent wider than the previous year. Price controls on retail food went into effect last J u n e for a brief period, allhough beef was under (hem for months before and after. The farm value of the foods in the market basket fell 1.2 per cent-to a point 2.6 per cent below the previous year and 11.7 per cent below January's farm value. Farmers' production costs rose 0.6 per cent from May, it said. This year, with retail and farm prices expected to pick up slightly again tills summer before an autumn level off, retail prices have risen 3 per cent since January. The spread for processor, wholesalers and r e t a i l e r s collectively h a s jumped 16 per cent. 19V2, when the market turned Since June grain export around in line with sharply curtailed world food supplies, retail food prices in the annual mar- ketbasket total have fallen only four months of 25.

Aldermen approved changing the curfew for persons under 18 years of age from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. each night from May 1 to August 31. This ordinance, with its at- t a c'h e d emergency clause, becomes effective immediately after its publication in the local . newspaper. Police Chief Joe Sims said afternoon Hems on the ^.'several persons -- including school officials -- requested the change during the summer because of the extended light period. He had no reservations about the change from the original curfew of 10 p.m. on all Sundays through Thursdays and.11 p.m. on all Fridays and Saturdays. . Youth Center director, Wayne Johnson, asked Sims if the c u r f e w would apply to youngsters involved in Center programs that continued until 11:30 p.m. Sims said these functions and athletic activities would be considered "legitimate reasons' by police officers- The ordinance states that youth under 18 years of age cannot be on the streets or in public places after curfew unless accompanied by an adult relative or legal guardian or unless they have a "legitimate reason." PATROLMEN TO JUDGE- Whether or not the reason is "legitimate" is left to Hie discretion of the individual patrolinan. In other business, councilmen agreed that Johnson should draw up a list of regulations governing use of the city's four tennis courts. Alderman James Irwin said the courts were being monopolized by persons using them hour after hour. The council also authorized Johnson to draw up building tennis courts to be installed beside the present two in Murphy Park. V i c e - m a y o r McKinney reported on his and Alderman John Box's meeting with a Frisco Railroad supervisor, Robert S. Fuller, earlier Tuesday. The city officials met with Fuller to discuss installation of a signal light at the Huntsville Avenue railroad crossing. A neighborhood group approached the council at its July 9 meeting to request council support in getting the signal. The crossing has been the scene of many car-train collisions in :he past. Fuller told McKinney that the signalization cost would total about $20,000. A new section in the Federal Highway Act might provide 50 per cent of the cost in whicli case Frisco would pay the rest of the bill and put up the lights, Fuller told McKinney and Box. McKinney is investigating the possibility of obtaining federal assistance. In a final matter. McKinney asked the city's planning c o m m i s s i o n to consider requiring builders to erect poles that could be used for street lights in all new subdivisions. published agenda. One item was .abled and two were withdrawn. The Commission approved the large scale development plan submitted by James F. Freeman for property located at the intersection of College Avenue and' Longview Street. ' The only other matter considered was the large scale development plan and condi- tonai use request submitted by Parker David Rushing for property located at the north end of Stone Bridge Road. The Commission refused to approve the item, which would have permitted Rushing to Councilman and planning commission member. Jerry C. Clark agreed to take the suggestion to his commission. construct an open air theater on his property. The open air theater would have been used to present 'legitimate" theater plays (Shakespeare, etc.) to an audience of 250 or less. Rushing said the theater would not require any kind of amplification, thus holding noise to a minimum. He pointed an that the nearest home to the proposed theater, with the exception of his own, was about 600 feet away. He also said that access to the site would be from Crossover Road (Hwy. 265) which would cut the amount of dust caused by traffic. Several property owners in the area of the proposed theater strongly objected to the location of such a tiling near their property, saying it would make way for .possible rezonings in the currently residential section. Several also cited noise and dust as their reasons for being against the proposal. not in order until to whom the subpoena has been addressed has declined to comply with it and has been cited for contempt. "The issue whether a President can be cited for contempt could itself engender protracted litigation and would further de- ay both review on the merits o! liis claim of privilege and lie ultimate termination of the underlying criminal action for which his evidence is sought," said Burger. The Chief Justice read the ipinion in full from the bench in a steady, unemotional voice. Normally only a summary of an opinion is read, but a source close to the justices said Jus- Jce William 0. Douglas insisted that this opinion be read in full. A line of spectators began forming around 6:20 a.m., hoping for admission to the ses sion. By 10 a.m., an hour before the justices were scheduled to convene on the bench, the line stretched down the Supreme Court steps and arounc [he corner of the block. The court has about 300 seals foi spectators. Jaworski and a deputy, Philip A. Lacovara, arrived about 21 minutes before the justices con vened.. The Supreme Court heard ar Suments on the Nixon case Julj It had accepted the case on an expedited basis, indicating t would rule quickly. Nixon appealed from an ordei y U.S. District Judge John J Sirica directing him to turr over tapes and docufnents re lating to 64 White House con versations for possible use a: evidence.

RESPONSE NOT CLEAR It was not clear what Nixon response would be if ordere by the court to turn over th records. In arguments before the mrt his lawyer, James D.

Republicans contended that Maryland presents' a special case: Its last two governors have been Republican Spiro T. Agnew, who resigned the vice presidency because of political scandal, and Democrat Marvan Mandel, whose administration has been the target of grand jury probes.

Stock Market Steady NEW YORK (AP) - The stock market showed little change today as the Supreme Court decision in the White House tapes case produced no visible reaction in trading on Wail Street. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was down .71 at 797.01, while gainers and losers stood almost exactly in balance on the New York Stock Exchange. Prices opened mixed and stayed that way after the Supreme Court affirmed a lower court's order requiring President Nixon to turn over 64 tapes in conneclion with the Watergate case. "This appears to demonstrate that inflation and interest rates are much more important to investors than the impeachment question," said Robert Stovall at Reynolds Securities. Citicorp was the most-active NYSE issue, unchanged at 35%. The bank holding company's widely discussed offering o( floating long-term notes came fo market today. At the American Stock Exchange, the market-value index was up .16 at 80.41. MISSED YOUR PAPER? WE'RE SORRY!
