money in May than in April but this year casli farm income was in April and 000000 in May the bureau of ag ricultural economics reported The economists attributed this unusual trend to early marketings of crops and livestock this season because drought boosted prices of one and reduced feed supplies for the other They also noted a recent downward trend in farm prices Despite this reversal the econ omists said the May income was 510000000 above the same month last season and highest total since May 1930 when farmers collect ed For the remainder of 1937 the economists said income from farm marketings will be somewhat largerthan in the same period of 1J36 Farmers should have more wheat corn and other crops for sale they said white higher prices for meat animals probably will offset the anticipated decrease in marketings THREE FOILS ATTEMPT TO WRECK TRAIN WPA Worker Gets Curious When He Sees Men Put Package on Rails AUBURN Neb UP Angela Gobbini 43 Auburn Nebr WPA worker and part
