CORNING Farmers hurried their hogs and cattle to market Wednesday following the temporary halt of the National Farmers Organizations NFO market place rebellion NFO President Oren Lee Staley called a recess in the militant farm groups montftlong attempt to force prices up by off the market Plans to add milk to the all out holding action were postponed Hog and cattle receipts jumped at 12 Midwest markets in the wake of the NFO decision The 64000 head of hogs was 9000 nore than last Wednesday and the 46000 cattle offered for sale amounted to 11000 more than a week ago Hog prices went down as much as At the Decker packing plan in Mason City hog prices were 75 cents lower At Wilson Co n Albert Lea prices skidded Series is herejust in time US can use relaxation By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK AP If ever Americans really needed a World Series the fracas opening Thurs day is the one They shouldnt and cant close their minds to a host of worries pressing in just now But for a few days at least they can find wel come hours of relief in submerg ing themselves in the battle royal between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts for the baseball champion ship The change in tensions should be healthy For just now the other tensions all around seem to be just a passing illu siou but millions of harried Amer leans must feel that way If it isnt Mississippi its Berlin f it isnt Cuba its thej Congo The stocfcYmarkethas many bit Ing their those who ac tually are losing money and those who cant figure out whats hap more important why its happening and what the future holds The closing days of any con gressional session arent soothing to the nerves This year the many issues be ing batted back and forth or de liberately being j shoved aside till after the election seem THE NEWS more touchy than usual Congress seems to be raising about as many questions as it is settling Nor can you lull yourself to sleep these nights by counting the economic statistics too many point up and too many point down and most just seem to be not pointing at all So businessmen can watch the World Series for awhile and stop worrying about profits Are earn ings being squeezed dangerously Are they orphans in a hostile gov ernment climate Can they be pepped up by more efficiency Lets talk about that next week Bankers and the nations money managers can take a brief respite from fretting over the trend of in terest in the un certain economic future Maybe even the debate over whether our dikes against the loss more treasury gold are high enough can be adjourned temporarily What to do about the European Common Market supposing we can do anything can wait for a few days surely Tien we can start worrying again Will the new freer trade bill work out into ac tual tariff bargains with Western Europe that will increase Ameri can export opportunities Or will the competition from Europe grow more critical as the Common Mar ket grows even stronger Shoulc we fight it or join it or seek a mutually profitable compromise And still farther out are all the imponderables about the space race Worrying about the Soviet Union beating us to the moon or about its orbiting nuclear pay loads over our heads cant be really shelved But for a few days baseball will do its best to soothe our nerves V DAISY GROWING M I A M I UPI Tropical storm Daisy boosted its power to 55 mile an hour winds Wed nesday and hovered north of n the face of heavy receipts Staley said the recess was strictly a strategic maneuver and warned the holding action can be reinstated at a mo ments notice ove a 16state area He told farmers dont be in a hurry to sell Staley said the recess was called to permit NFO members to dispose of livestock they can no longer handle It depends on livestock price and if processors agree to our contracts during the recess he said During the early days of the boycott supplies of cattle and hog at the 12 major terminal markets and interior buying stations fel off sharply Some packing plant laid off workers and in some o the larger cities retail prices ad vanced Then livestock receipts fluctuat ed and started back toward nor maV levels It was during this pe riod that large numbers of NF members held demonstrations an disrupted livestock auctions Staley claimed that at the mar ket place the NFO neared com plete victory three times But we loosened with our u timate victory has been delayed he said The shuffling of livestock from market to market and he hauling f livestock from long distances hat processors were forced to do during the holding action was costly and we believe processors vould want to avoid that thenext ime Staley said The holding action at the start on Aug 28 included feed grain Staley said that will remain in ef ect However corn and soybeans iave not been harvested and nei her farmers nor processors have been affected Launchings routine7 now Beaches almost bare CAPE CANAVERAL Its getting to be old hat now See one and youve seen them all So said unimpressed police of ficers assigned to handle traf fic pileups around Cape Ca naveral as America lofted as tronaut Walter M Schirra into his space flight Only there werent any pile ups Or crowds Traffic appeared to be nor m a 1 throughout t h e entire area A Florida highway pa trolman said There were a few outoftown cars looking for the bast place to w a t c h the launch but even they had pulled off the beach and left the island within an hour after blast off The sandy waveswept beach adjacent lo the missile launch site was virtually left to the pelicans until about15 minutes before the spaceman left on his ninehour flight was amazed there cant have been more than 200 people on the whole beach said Mrs Otis Imboden a Ca naveral beach resident Usu ally the beach is crowded for a space John Glenn went there were 75000 people and there were almost as many for Scott Carpenters trip she said But this time the place was deserted I suppose this must be getting old stuff The absence of spectators was particularly noticeable at the South Pier the closest pub lic area to the launch site which was jammed with trailers for the Glenn shot However as Schirra lifted off fewer than 20 cars and not one trailer were parked at the area But among the few persons who did watch the early morn ing firing were some outof lowners who traveled far to watch this aweinspiring sight I was trying to knit but I just couldnt said Mrs Ar thur Waltz Rochester Minn I would like to have been closer but its amazing that the pub lic even is allowed to watch Mr and Mrs Jack Mapes said they drove from Cincin nati Ohio especially to see the launching Its a strange feel ing to watch history in the mak ing Mapes said even though were still at the model T stage I wanted to pray and cry at the same
