Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 29, 1964, Mason City, Iowa Pack DBS JUOINES AP The economic impact of the National Farmers Organization holding action on livestock markets ap peared to be fading this week Several major Midwest pack ing companies had a move un der way Saturday to recall part of the workers laid off a week ago when meal production was curtailed by the National Far mers Organization action to withhold livestock Representatives of Wilson Co which dropped about 660 production employes at plants in Nebraska Minnesota Iowa and Missouri said plans were to resume increased operations ers will call back some if receipts of caldc and hogs re main steady next week Some of Ihe 350 laid off at the Armour and Co plant at South St Paul Minn will be recalled Tuesday if livestock receipts in prove said plant Manager M E Barnes Spokesman for the NFO al the Corning headquarters said however lliat the call has gone out to strengthen the holding action and that they expected market supplies to drop again Wilson Co has pJanls at Omaha Neb Cedar llapids Iowa Albert Lea Minn and Kansas City Mo Plant Manager C E Cairns at Albert Lea said In view of Ihe substantial in crease in livestock receipts at major markets during the past week indicating a collapse of lie holding action the Albert Lea plant is recalling some of the employes laid off a week ago Markets were in recess for the weekend asusual Saturday the nth day of the NFO drive which seeks contractural bar gaining with meat processors at higher prices The NFOs early success in reducing the flow of cattle hogs and sheep lo market sent livestock prices leaping early this week to their highest levels in 19 months at some terminals But by weeks end hog and cattle deliveries were back to near normal as farmers rushed lo take advantage of the higher prices The influx pulled prices down to only slightly above those pre vailing when the NFO started its action 10 days ago Housewives were finding in some cities that they had to pay a few cents more per pound for meat NFO President Oren Lee Slal cy of Rca Mo says these re tail price boosts are unjustified at this time and that retailers are taking advantage of the situation created by the hold ing action Nimbus I lopsided But most market experts say economic factors would have brought about increases in prices for meat both on the hoof and at the butchers coun ter regardless of the NFO Some concede the NFO action may have hastened the trend a bit The NFO by holding meat animals off the market in 23 states east of the Rocky Moun tains is trying to force proces sors to sign contracts guaran teeing farmers certain minimum prices for livestock The NFO is demanding mini mums of a hundredweight for No 1 and 2 grade hogs for choice cattle and for sheep Hogs havent commanded a price that high since 1958 Its the consensus of meat in dustry leaders US Department of Agriculture officials and most farm economists lhat holding actions do no permanent good and contain the seeds of heir own downfall This is because prices are largely determined by demand and animals held beyond the normal marketing lime go on gaining weight thus increasing the supply of meat that must eventually go to market This tends to depress prices for a prolonged period after the hold ing action ends success Best weather picture yet WASHINGTON AP Nim bus 1 traveled an unduly lop sided orbit Saturday but still snapped earth pictures far bet ter than any ever taken by other weather satellites Pointing constantly to the earth it took pictures and flashed them to receiving sta tions around the world It is also equipped to take nighttime pic tures The Automatic Picture Trans ission APT system tested previously in a Tiros satellite had heretofore produced pic lures far less clear than those in thc regular satellite photo sys tem However David S Johnson director of thc Weather Bu reaus National Weather Satel lite Center at Suitland Md said the Nimbus pictures wore one to hvo times as clear as those taken by lie Tiros APT system Furthermore Johnson said the Nimbus APT pictures were of even higher quality than those stored pictures of Ihe Tir os Vidicom system The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and thc Weather Bureau showed pic tures received from Nimbus on its fifth orbit Friday to demon strate this The first picture from the new satellite was taken from 500 miles directly over Baton Rouge La and clearly showed thc Gulf of Mexico the Texas Gulf Coast a cold front moving down the central front of the United States and off to its right the western edge of Hur ricane Clco Dr Morris Tepper director of NASAs meteorological grams said this was a pro re get from APT He said two Tiros satellites had been observing

had divided his lime between residences in Mi ami and New York City An Iowa Stale University farm economist says it is un realistic to expect processors lo sign contracts guaranteeing minimum prices The processor is the middle man he said He couldnt possibly guarantee the farmer a price unless he had a tight con trol over supplies He can sell only so much meat at any given price This economist said a holding action can only benefit those who sell while prices are tem porarily high because of the artificial shortage of meat ani mals Stalcy however says the con tracts must be won to nail down
