PETER, Minn. (AP) --, The remains of slain Sym- bionese Liberation Army (SLA) member Camilla Hall were buried in this small southern Minnesota town Sunday night. Miss Hall was killed in Los Angeles May 17 during a shootout between SLA members and police. About 150 family friends watched Miss Hall's father place her ashes beside the graves of two 'brothers and a sister. · Her father, the Rev. George Hall, dug a hole with a shovel th and personally buried ashes. He was silent at the buria service at Resurrection Ceme tery, speaking instead at a re ception afterward. He said he received a repor 10 days ago from Los Angele police on the May 17 shootou and contended that new ev dence indicates that the SL members were trying to sur render, and that a letter foun on Camilla indicated perhap "she had that' as her missio when she broke out in the ope and was felled." Super Farms Account For 45 Per Cent Of All Farm Products WASHINGTON (AP) -- N e w overnment figures show that 09,000 super farms with sales f $100,000 or more each turned ut nearly one half of the na- ion's food and fiber last year. At the same time, small arms with sales of only $2,500 r less produced a declining hare of U.S. farm goods. Production from those, often de- cribed by agricultural economists as rural residences rath- ir than farms, accounted for inly 1 per cent of 1973 output. The new figures were included in an annual farm income review published last week by he Agriculture Department. Over-all, it said soaring prices or grain, livestock and other commodities pushed net farm ncome to $32.2 billion last year, an 84 per cent gain from 1972. Also, the report showed, the ter capita disposable personal ncome of farmers in 1973 -- 'rom all sources including jobs n cities -- exceeded for the 'irst time the average take- lome pay of city and other non- farm people. It $4,820 on a farm per capita basis, compared with $3,153 in 1972. DISPOSABLE INCOME Per capita disposable income of nonfarm people rose to $4,270 last year, a gain of $394 com pared with the boost of $1,667 Eor farmers. Traditionally farm disposable income has lagged far behind that for ur ban residents. Last year I topped nonfarm per capita in come by 12.9 per cent. The figures showing sales values indicated that manj farmers advanced into highei brackets, partly because 197; was a -top year for most pro duction but mainly becansi E rices averaged 37 per cen igher than in 1972. At the top of the scale were the 109,000 super farms whicl sold commodities worth $100,00 or more last year. Those r o s sharply,, from 70,000 farms i that category-in 1972. The'figures showed the supe farms accounted for 45.7 pe cent of the total value of farm products sold last year, u from 38.2 per cent in 1972. Am those farms made up only 3. per cent;of the nation's 2,844 000-farms-counted in 1973. At the bottom, in the $2,500 o less category, were 753.00 farms making up 26.4 per cen f the U.S. total. Those ac- ounted for 1 per cent of sales, own from 2.1 per cent in 1972. FEWEK FARM SALES The report showed that na- Jonally there were 26,000 fewer arms of all kinds last year ompared with 1972. That trend as been going on since the 930s. Between the super farm and mall unit extremes, the.gener- 1 pattern showed a distinct noying up to larger sales cate- ;ories. The top three, for example, nvolve farms with 1973 sales aiiging from $20,000 each to he highest category of $100,000 r more. Last year, the report showed, he $20,000-and-over groups to- aled slightly more than one million farms. That was an increase of 314,000 from 1972. Col- cctively, those accounted for 8.6 per cent of the nation's arm output, based on sales, compared with 80.8 per cent in 1972. In the middle were sales categories ranging from $2,500 per "arm to'the $20,000: level. Those arms totaled 1,082,000 last year, a drop of 77,000 from 1972. Net farm Income -- the record $32.2 billion in all -- was apportioned generally accord- ,ng to size: The larger the farm, the higher the income.. The $100,000 sales farms, for example, got 34.8 per cent of Lhe total net, income although representing only 3.8 per cent of all the farms in the country. AMA Journel Hits Delay Of Drug Study CHICAGO AP) -- Americans who suffer high blood pressure are being deprived of drugs found helpful in treatment of the disease in Great Britain, according to an editorial in a leading medical magazine.
