(TIMESuliolo by Chuck Cunningham) Frost Deals Corn, Soybean Producers Another Big Blow BOONE, Iowa (AP) -- An early killing frost has dealt weather-stricken Midwest corn .-and soybean producers another Slow and may mean higher consumer prices on meat, milk and eggs. Officials say freezing temperatures which settled across the Upper Midwest on Saturday and Sunday nights may have caused the loss of another 200 million bushels of corn, and the figure on soybean loss could be twice as great. One result may be consumers paying "still higher prices for meat, milk and eg?.s," says Walter Goeppinger, chief ad- Pejovich To Speak At UA Dr. Svetozar Pejovich, a professor of economics at the University of Ohio, will deliver the Phillips Petroleum Distinguished Lecture at the University of Arkansas Friday, according to Dr. John P.

Soviet Diplomats Live In Luxury i CENTREVILLE, Md.(AP) -; Soviet diplomats are living in I grand style at their Eastern ; Shore retreat, stocking it with comforts that would have made ± a czar envious... .. After buying a luxurious cs- ' t tate at Pioneer Point for more than SI million, the Russians ·.acquired two yachts, importec f a speedboat for waterskiing, in jstalled air conditioning, im /proved the tennis courts anc '. touched up the swimming pool. - The resort, formerly owned ,by businessman John Jacob ''Haskob, includes two mansions on 40 tree-shaded acres with ijsandy beaches along tire Cor {pica and Chester Rivers. [(' Victor Ivanov, resident rnan .fger of the .estate, says the re ·prt is used for relaxation bs soviet diplomats and their fam .·(lies who come from Washing ·Ton, often in groups of about 50, '£ They amuse themselves play ing tennis, soccer, table tennis, fishing, skiing and swimming! Jvanov said. .' At one recent party, the So .Met diplomats invited local .i;0yernment officials and pro yKed seemingly unending sup- lies of lobster, vodka and caviar. 'f "You'd think they were capi- jjajists," one neighbor com- Jnenlcd. ministrative officer of the Na- ional Corn Growers Association in Boune. 'American farmers would irobably have raised a record i.l billion bushel corn crop this year," he said on Monday. 'After the spring storms and summer drought, it was looking "ike a crop of 5 billion bushels. "But the frost damage has covered such a wide area that 4.8 billion bushels is the max- mum that can be expected. It could be less." SPRING DAMAGE Severe spring storms washed away much newly planted corn and soybean seed or delayed plantings, then a summer drought.laid waste to thousands of acres ot prime cropland. Now the unseasonably early frost has taken its toll of imma- ,ure corn stands in Iowa, No- )raska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Illinois and Michigan, Goeppinger said. Delayed plantings of corn resulted in later-maturing plants which were more susceptible to 'rest. For that corn to develop 'it needed a later-than-average tilling frost date, instead of an earlier one," Goeppinger said. Dr. Harvey Thompson, an Iowa State University agronomist, estimated the Iowa corn loss from frost alone at 40 million bushels, or 4 per cent of a predicted one billion bushe! harvest. "The percentage loss on soybeans will be more than double the loss on corn," Thompson said. "Because of the spring rain, hardly any beans were planted on lime, and a lot were replanted a couple of times." Goeppinger said corn produC' ers in the seven-state Upper Midwest area who were hit by the drought and then the fros' "are really paying the bigges price. Probably in many cases they may not get 15 to 20 bush els to an acre. And in some cases there is complete fail lire. 1 * Corn producers in recenl years have consistently har vested more than 100 bushels an acre. Goeppinger said .higher prices for corn will cause beef poultry and hog producers -who use the grain for fattening livestock -- to reduce the amounts they send to market.
