Ralph Bruce Somers is natural science. North eid. N j. And Joseph Francis Wilson Abt physical education Vienna shortage May stunt Corn crop by d. Montgomery associated press writer Farmer City. Ill api a Here in the Corn Belt Spring planting is in full swing but Farmers Are grumbling that they can t get enough nitrogen fertilizer to sow the bumper Corn crop predicted by the . Government. A there s nothing they can do about it a says Lew West one of the 200 Farmers who Purchase fertilizer from his Farmer City Gram. Fertilizer and chemical co. Because of the Energy crisis the natural Gas in nitrogen fertilizer has been in Short Supply. West had to Cut Back his customers to �?o20 per cent of what we sold them last without nitrogen fertilizer the Corn planted per acre must be reduced sacrificing the High yield needed for a bumper crop. Or Farmers can switch to soybeans which Don t need nitrogen the scarcest of the major fertilizer ingredients. Many Farmers in Indiana Iowa and Illinois a the Corn Belt states a say they Are making the switch to soybeans either because they can t get the fertilizer or it s too expensive. A we re Selling for $185 a ton and we hear of prices on up As High As $400 a West said. A last year we sold for $75 to $85 a exports Cut heavily into 1973 s record 5.6 billion Bushel Harvest. As a result stocks of Corn the Staple livestock Fastener Are 15 per cent below last years level and the Price has risen from $1,65 to $2.60 a Bushel for mid May delivery. That has driven up beef prices too. And Many livestock producers have reduced their herds until Corn prices drop. Prices should drop according to the experts if october s Corn Harvest is 6 7 billion bushels As the . Agriculture department predicts. Edwin Harre of the agriculture departments National fertilizer Center in muscle Shoals. Al says the 6.7 billion bushels is probable because a we Don t look for the nitrogen fertilizer shortfall to be More than 4 or 5 per cent at the most a to this Edwin Wheeler of the fertilizer Institute in Washington an Industry association replies a Farmers can expect no More than 85 per cent of the nitrogen they that could reduce the estimated Corn crop by nearly one billion bushels. The National Corn growers association has estimated a 1974 Harvest of 6.1 billion bushels. Richard Stone who farms 1,400acres near Bradfordton feels from his own experience that the agriculture department s Corn Harvest expectations Are too optimistic. In interviews other Corn Belt Farmers agreed with Stone because of the fertilizer problem. Stone has purchased 75 per cent of the nitrogen fertilizer he wants at $195 a ton triple what he paid last year. Because of the shortage he s sowing Only 700 acres in feed Corn instead of the 1,000 he planted last year. A there s no Point in going on without Stone says hell Plant soybeans in those 300 acres. The 39-year-old Farmer tilling land that has been in the family More than 150 years thinks that Early planting in the Midwest this year a in expectation of a dry spell a might have put a too much pressure on the fertilizer last year planting was delayed a month until late May because of heavy Rains. About 70 Miles East of Bradfordton. Near Cerro Gordo. Ted Shambaugh. 37. Was hard at work blowing Fields for fertilizer application. He stood beside a towering roaring diesel tractor Yelling replies to a reporter s questions pausing with a Pencil stub to figure up an answer on the Back of a White trailer tank. Of his 1.600 acres he Hopes to put 800 in feed and Canning Corn a 400 acres More than last year. With nitrogen and Good weather that should nearly double his 50,000-Bushel, 1973 yield. Unlike Stone Shambaugh realized last fall that there might be a nitrogen fertilizer shortage. So he stockpiled. But he still came up 200 acres Short and he won t know until he gets the Bill in the mail what hell pay for the Fere Milizer in the tank he s writing on. A is that Good business a he asks. Even though he s wearing sunglasses he a looking you straight in the Eye. A chill Prairie wind mingles drizzle with dust and Shambaugh pokes at a Deer track with the toe of his heavy Boot As he broods. He signed a contract last tall to sell most of this year s crop at $1.65 a Bushel a Good Price at the time. Some of his neighbors made no plans and Are reaping the Benefit of this Spring s higher Market Price. A the Farmer who has tried to keep himself extremely abreast and has made a marketing plan based on past history has made himself to look almost like a Complete ass a Shambaugh says. The Price Shambaugh and others get for their Corn and the Bills they must pay for fertilizer Are of deep concern. Roughly speaking Many Farmers figure Corn becomes unprofitable to grow if the Price drops below $2 a Bushel and fertilizer goes above $370 a ton. In the Wabash River country near Carmi a Black a rated movies from Page in everyone in Harlan. There Are people who Don t like a rated movies period and some who object to having them shown in their town. Most however Are w Illing to live with it a was of today the Community Standard is Well tolerate said the Shelby county attorney John Sawin. A if you done to have any complaints you assume the Community is satisfied i Haven t had a single complaint a Well we be probably got some people that done to agree with them a said Glen Hansen Barber and bartender. A but to Tell the truth it s never been brought up much lately. The Don t even talk about it. Glen s Barber shop is on the East Side. Of the town Square the Shelby county courthouse monumental Sandstone fortress anchors the Square two Story Brick buildings most dating from the turn of the Century ring the perimeter with turrets and Arches and fresh paint. The Harmony inn Glens bar. Is on the other Side of the Square. Scissors in hand Glen talked about the movies As he trimmed the White hair of Leonard Larsen who farms 200 acres East of town a a he a got to make a living same As anyone else a said Glen. A if he s showing regular shows and can to make a living he s got to do something a a a fellow can stay out of there if he does t like it a Leonard added. A i d sure hate to see the movie completely a said Glen. A i done to know about that a Leonard nodded. A i Don t go. There s enough on to to hold me a year. A in Days gone by the local movie House was the entertainment Center of Small town America. Color to and network movies have changed that. To sets glow in the night and Blank marquees stare Down on main Street a rated movies Are keeping some alive. A it s just one of those things a said Glen. A it s changing always has always will. Sometimes you wonder about it. Then you figure the Good old Days people would t want them Back the red White and Blue lights of the Harlan theater Glimmer at Twilight in the Southwest Corner of the Square. Woodraska has a Small office upstairs behind the projection Booth. Stashed in a Corner Are the Gold shoes Bow tie and Straw hat he wears on saturday. As a Uncle Al a he gives away jump ropes and Yoyos at the matinee Woodraska who took Over the theater last june several months after the protest reached for the books. He is 39 and the father of three children the Blond hair is deserting the front of his Scalp lie wears tooled leather boots and a striped sport shirt Quot we did All right from june to september we were making ends meet. But since then. Quot look a this. A bang the drum a lowly a a Good picture for everyone Zero one night no one came and Here. Day of the jackal a one of the big pictures of the year. Sunday was $44 50, monday was Zero and tuesday we did $24 50 a i waited and business still did t pick up. So then i wrote a letter to the ministers telling them i was going to bring in the a rated pictures. It just seemed that this was what the people on the first sunday monday tuesday of March the feature at the Harlan theater was a the new land a a Story of immigrant staking out a new life in 19th Century America eighty one people came and Woodraska had $88 80 left after paying film rental on the same three Days in april the feature was Quot Midnight Lowboy a the a rated tale of a farm boy in the big City. It Drew 160 people and there was $151 in the till after film rental. The people we see for these shows we very Seldom see them for anything else a Woodraska said. Quot they Are usually your older people. You know. 35. 45, maybe in their 50s most of them Are married couples. The younger people they Aren t As interested As a lot of people think they Are a Why the change i rom last year s protest Quot i think people. I Don t know whether people Are growing up or what a said Woodraska. A i can t answer. You Tell Woodraska s wife Dixie was downstairs behind the ticket counter. Frosted blonde half a head Shorter than Al she Sells tickets and does the books. Quot i think people have been so subjected to it they just accept Dixie said. A like the first time Al Ever brought Home a Playboy Book. I was shocked that was years ago. Now he brings them Home and they re just another Magazine to Lowell Holmes an insurance agent was elected mayor in january. Like Many in Harlan the Only concern he voices is that people under 18 might get in to see the a rated movies. A a that a the one big objection a he said. A i done to know How you can Tell me if i m 16 or 26 and How difficult is it to get a fake id0�?� a rated movies have not really become acceptable in Harlan said the mayor not socially and morally acceptable a allowed would be a better word a he said Quot maybe it s a callousness that comes with some of our ways of thinking. You go Over to Omaha or Des Moines you see All these Onmi Heaters with the x and the double xxx and the triple xxx movies. You know it rubs off. We become callous Atter a Market developed in nitrogen fertilizer. Bill Lamont a fertilizer dealer said that when his regular nitrogen supplier failed him a about the Only thing left to do was to buy some of this Black Market Lamont sold to 15 old customers at $370 a ton. A the rest said that if they have to pay that kind of Price they la just go to planting Beans instead of one of the buyers was Lawrence Brown 35, who runs a 2,000-acre farm with his father and two tenants. A i had no other place to go a Brown said. He d like to sow 600 to 700 acres in Corn and 200 were planted in Early May. It s up to the Black Market he says whether the rest will be Corn or soybeans. William of Daniel 50, and his son John. 27, running a 3,-000-acre farm near Wayne City wanted to Plant 1.500 acres in Corn but Cut this to 1.200 because of the fertilizer shortage. Quot we re going to have to live with nitrogen or without it a said of Daniel. Who a also democratic candidate for election to the state mayor Holmes was walking across the Square headed for the courthouse. Doc Early came out of the Harlan bakery. Charles a a Doc Early is Moderator at the first Baptist Church a member of the City Council and one of Harlan s six practising veterinarians. The Laws and the courts Are part of the problem. Doc said. A if they legalize it or fail to i legalize it it becomes possible to show it against Public sentiment. There s no Way to enforce the Iowa supreme court last december struck Down the state s 1909 statute forbidding immoral plays exhibitions and entertainments. Citing a . Supreme court decision of last june the Iowa court said the statute was unconstitutional vague and Over Road and did not define obscenity in terms of local Community standards. A but the answer to having it done the Way we want in legislature. A the Only thing we know is that we Are not going to let the land go Idle. We have seed Beans and Well Plant them. It s not too awful much difference in the net profit but normally we will make a Little More Money on our Community is not to i legalize it or put Laws against it. You can t enforce moral issues. They have to come from training or from something within the individual. I feel that Way about liquor and a lot of something has changed in Harlan said Doc Early but not All that much. A people Haven to changed since Christ a time or before a he said Quot it s. Well i suppose it s the eroding away of our resistance to this sort of thing. Then again people in my generation have a lot of hangups As far As sex is concerned and is that Good a the building that houses the Harlan theatre was built in 1882. Half hidden behind the marquee is an engraved Stone Block a Long s opera Blanche tank who lives in an apartment above the theater can remember when touring stage companies stopped to entertain the populace. She is 83. A Well i be seen it coming for several years now a said mrs. Tank. A people Are just kind of passive about it. They Don t i done to know whether they Are too Busy with too Many things or what. A lot of people done to take time to think about things anymore. Quot everything is so different now a she said. A i just done to get too excited about it anymore a across the Street Mark Musich was sitting in front of the civil War Monument on the courthouse Lawn. He is 14, an eighth grader in Blue jeans and Bare feet on a warm Spring Day. A Well know one thing for sure i get in there to see one a said Mark. Quot maybe in a couple of years i d like to see one i d kind of like to take a Little Peak in a just actually kind of curious to see what an a rated movie is All about a planting dilemma squatting in the Back of his pickup out in the Fields Lawrence Brownjr.
