ricultural situation next year.”
As to the longer term out
look, USDA’s Sherman Johnson
pointed out that “unless more
effective programs are develop
ed, farmers will be faced with
a continuing income squeeze in
the next five years. With aver
age weather, annual farm pro
duction will continue to exceed
axailable outlets at 1959 prices,
whioh would mean that stocks of
surplus products would become
even larger.” <

Serious Crime In United States
At All Time High Says FBI Head
Attorney General William P.
I Rogers has released FBI crime
statistics for 1959 which were
* reported to him by FBI Director
j J. Edgar Hoover.
I Mr. Hoover announced that
serious crimes in the United
States nave reached an all-time
high. Over one and one-half
million serious offenses were
committed in 1959. Although
serious crimes as a group in
creased only one percent last
year over 1958, killers, assail
ants, rapists, robbers, burglars
and assorted thieves committed
69 percent more serious crimes
in 1959 than they committed in
1950 and 128 percent more such
offenses than were committed in
1940. Already in the first half
of 1960 the FBI reports a sharp
rise of nine percent in serious
crimes is indicated nationally.
Immediate prospects for a change
in the trend are dim inasmuch
as the FBI crime calendar re
i veals the nation is approaching
! the most crime-ridden month,
“This ominous rise in crime j
j cannot be explained away as
ibeing due to population increas
es,” Director Hoover said.
“Crime has been rising four
times as fast as population. Un
i less positive steps are taken to
check this rising crime trend,
this country will face a crime
problem of emergency propor
tions in the years ahead.
“The seriousness of the ju
venile delinquency problem is
pinpointed by the disproportion
ately large involvement of young
peoplb in certain crimes. In
auto theft, persons under 18
years of age made up 64 per
cent of all arrests. They repre
sented 52 percent of the persons
arrested for burglary while 49
percent of the arrests for larceny
and 26 percent of the arrestsi
