INCOME ON FARMS
MOST IN 4 YEARS Crop Production Smallest in 30 Years—Economists See Parity Restoration. Br the Associated Press. The highest farm Income in four years, paradoxically coupled with the «mallest crop production in 30 years, engaged the attention today of agri cultural economists and pointed to the success of the administration's efforts to restore parity between agri culture and industry. The summary of production during 1934 showed a farm output 32 per cent less than the average of the past 10 years. Many crops returned the lowest yields since 1890 because of drought and the production con trol programs οi the Farm Adminis tration. The total value of all crops, at the lame time, was reported as $4,782, 626,000, compared with $4,114,265, 000 last year and $2,882,195.000 in 1932. By add'ng in the $552,000, 000 in benefit payments made by the Α. Α. Α., the figure was increased to $5,334,626,000. Production was listed in the re port as follows: Corn, 1,380,718,000 bushels, 41 per cent smaller than last year 45 per cent less than the flve-year average: wheat, 596,469,000 bushels, the smallest since 1890; oats, 528,815,000 bushels, 55 per -cent less than the flve-year average; grain sorghums, 34,542,000 bushels, 61 per cent Delow 1933; sugar beets, 7,627, 000 tons, 31 per cent less than last year; barley, 118,929,000 bushels, the smallest since 1900; tobacco, 1,095, 662.000 pounds, 20 per cent below last year; cotton lint, 9.731,000 bales, 33 per cent less than the five-year aver age, and potatoes, 385,287,000 bushels, 20 per cent larger than 1933. "Largely as a reuslt of the sharp decreases in the production of most crops and the shortage of feed for live stocit," the report said, "prices of the 14 principal crops averaged 42 per oent higher on December 1 than they were on that date last year and 140 per cent higher than two years ago. * U. S. TO PLANT ELMS DESPITE BLIGHT If&ll to Get 360, According to Fine Arts Commission's Recommendations. Although the Dutch elm disease Is prevalent In the vicinity of New York end authorities fear that it may sweep on to Washington. C. Marshall Finnan, superintendent of the National Capi tal parks, said yesterday the Gov ernment is going ahead with its program to plant some 360 elm trees in the Mall. This is in accordance with recommendations of the National Capital Park and Planning Commis sion and the Fine Arts Commission. Finnan said that Dr. E. P. Meinecke of San Francisco, Calif., principal pathologist in the Bureau of Plant In dustry of the Department of Agricul ture, who is an expert on Dutch elm disease, made a thorough inspection of Washington's trees in the parks. He found no cause for alarm here, said the park superintendent. A discussion centered around ■whether oaks or elms should be planted in the Mall, but officials fin ally decided that It would be more economical to plant the elms and that these trees would be more fitting In Washington's central park. Dr. Henry V. Hubbard of Harvard Uni versity, a member of the Planning Commission, who is an eminent land scape architect, subscribed to the elm planting program.

Members of the President's execu tive staff are concerned over the re production In ft nationally circulated magasine of the plftns of the new executive office. Those who are lnstrusted with guarding the Hie of the President are aroused because these published plans not only show where the Presi dent's offlce is located, but show the position of each window in his offlce, the doorways and the passages lead ing to the office. Not In more than a quarter of a century have plans of the White House mansion nor the executive offlce been printed. During the re building there were various blue prints used by the contractors and subcontractors and It Is understood the magazine In question obtained one of the blue prints from Its Wash ington representative and published it without permission from the White House. Various newspapers made requests for blue prints for the purpose of illustrating stories about the rebuilt executive office, but each request was denied, with the explanation that it is contrary to the precautions taken to guard the President. Just what will be done by the White House as a result of this publication is not known. FARE ATTACKS CABMAN John V.
