Prices of Farm Products
To Be Higher This Year
Despite some recent and prospec
tive declines in prices of farm
products, the bureau of agricultural
economics said in it current de
mand and price situation report
that during the next' two months
"probably will continue to average
considerably higher than in the
same inonths last year."
Government payments' to farm
ers also have been larger than dur
ing the early months of last year,
so that - total cash farm income
from marketings- and government
payments during May and' June is
expected to "be higher than during
the corresponding months of 1936;
"There was little net change dur
ing the past month in the factors
affecting the current consumer de
mand for farm products in the
United States," and "relatively
small changes arc in prospect in
the near future," said the Bureau.
Although the rate of increase in
industrial production has slackened
recently, "unfilled orders in many
industries and the current strong
consumer demand for most types
of goods seem to preclude any ma
terial recession in business during
the immediate future."
But "private spending for con
struction and capital goods will
have to increase materially,", the
Bureau adddd, "to offset decreased
government spending, if general
business activity is not to be af
fected." Most of the recession in the gen
eral level of Wholesale prices dur
ing the past month was reported to
have reflected a drop of five per
cent in prices of farm products and
4 per cent in prices of foods.
Prices of most groups of commo
dities other than farm products and
foods fluctuated within a .narrow
As to prices received by farmers,
wheat, cotton, cattle, lambs, eg,TS,
eggs, and potatoes appear to be
lower; fruits, poultry and dairy
products are higher; while wool
and hogs are about unchanged.
Reported highlights by farm
commodities included indications of
a total United States wheat crop
"considerably in excess of domestic
requirements;" prospects that the
price of corn will "remain high
relative to prices of . small grains
during the summer months."
Marketings of early spring lambs
arc expected to show not much
increase before July since the cfp
is small and late in most areas. A
relatively low production of butter
was reported, and "with storage
stocks of eggs continuing to ac
cumulate above last year's level, it
is doubtful that the seasonal in
crease in farm prices of eggs this
year will be as great as average."
The greater-than-average rise in
the farm price of chickens this
spring was attributed largely to a
strong consumer demand for poul
try. A greater-than-usual seasonal
rise in prices of oranges was fore
cast, and a. further seasonal ad
vance in priccsN. of grapefruit.
Marketings of potatoes will be un
usually heavy during: tliKnext sev
eral months. Seasonal decKnes in
prices of a number of truck cops
have been checked or delayed

Bone From Egyptian
Tomb Causes Trouble

more than one night, and each

Two fires broke out in the house.
Glassware put in cabinets was
found smashed to bits.
He lent the bone to a surgeon
once, and that night the surgeon's
maid ibroke her leg running away,
in terror, she said, from a robed
phantom. (The' surgeon returned
the bone next day). V.
His family has suffered an un
precedented series of sudden ill
nesses. The small piece of bone, in a
glass case, was brought to Scot
land last year, by Lady Seton who
picked it up as a curio from a
tomb at Gizeh.
, Convinced the strange happen
ings could "not have been coinci
dences," Sir Alexander said :
"That bone is going to be re
placed in the tomb it was taken
from as quickly as possible.
"And Lady Seton "is making the
trip herself to make sure it gets
there. This ghastly 'business has
got to stop. And we are taking no

we have been dogged by7 this

offers for its purchase, but he said
he is determined no one else shall
suffer the '-xperiences of himself
and Lady Seton.
