County Agent Reports Good Year In Fallon County Agriculture In 1963 By Gene Hoff "1963 was good to you and me" is probably the best way to summarize the agriculture situation in Fallon county. We had a relatively easy winter, Tiot all the way through but in. general. The temperatures weren't too extreme and-there wasn't too much snow to shovel. We'll admit a little more snow, if it had stayed in place, would have helped the winter wheat but most everyone •had a fair - yield with a .county average of about 25-28 bushels to the acre. -■ • .-_.'■•;- ..*. The spring wheat averaged in: the neighborhood of 1S-20 bushels per acre, barley 25-35 and oats 40- 50 bushels per acre average.' Generally speaking, those figures are pretty good for our county. The state statistician maintains our spring wheat average is about 14.6 •bushels per acre. He doesn't find many people in Fallon county who will agree with him. The small grains were of much "better quality than usual, no doubt due to growing and harve ting conditions. As usual everything isn't as good as it sounds. Many of- the farmers had fairly heavy losses in their winter and spring wheat due to streak mociac. Thbse in the .areas affected reported yield of 4- 6 bushels per acre of very light wheat; in some cases it would hardly qualify as grain. Wheat .streak mosiac affected probably 8 Change In FCIC Operations Effective January 7, 1964, the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation-will establish a aervice. off ice in Glendive to* handle the, administrative work for Fallon, Dawson tind. Wibaux counties. This office -will be in the Credit Bureau Office—located at 15 West Valentine, -next to.the telephone building. District Director, David J. Money, in announcing the new plan, informed us the move is being made to provide better and closer service to the farmers in this area, which in the past has been handled through the district office in Wolf Point. A corporation fieldman is also located in each county to handle any fieldwork which would be necesary and Mr. Money feels that the. farmers in these counties will receive the best of service. Erwin Huber, Plevna, has been appointed as fieldman for the corporation and after a training session -will be handling any necessary'fieldwork. William P. ;Tpy of the Credit Bureau, will assume the; duties'of service agent, and is well .qualified to; serve the crop insurance contracts for these three counties. ,He ■extends an Invitation, to^those interested to stop in:to.get acquainted; *' * ■ •■•--"' <.••'•* '—■ &- LEAVES SCENE OF ACCIDENT Courtney Boss, Baker, was •.arrested December 26 for .leaving the scene of an accident - and fined $25.00. Tho accident ..occurred at the corner of Milwaukee and North Third Street-East. Bfoss waa driv- ing west with a tank truck, cut the corner into the Big John Enterprises ".lot too short and.hit the fire' hydrant with the side of the tank and his rear wheel.

Grain weevils were .quite a nuisance this fall.. Nearly everyone managed to control them but' it ran into more money than you would guess. __. ... >. ','..,y> Yes, the grain farmer probably came out above the board this year. He has to once in a while.' -' ,; -Nearly all operators iri the county have livestock in addition to their grain farming or.are a straight livestock operator. Here's where the old saying-^'Eyerything that goes '..up' must**' come down'V"-, proved itself. The* price of swine and lambs dropped rapidly and close behind was the price of beef. Many took their loss and started figuring on the next move, others held their calves for a better market to develop. It appears as though it is going to" develop but in the buyers favor. Some maintain last year's prices spoiled the stockman. They might foe right but it certainly is a nice way to become spoiled. The situation isn't as bad as it sounds, calves may be cheaper but they certainly are heavier. In many instances calves are bringing nearly as many dollars this year as in 1962. t The same cannot be said, for sheepmen and swine producers. These men sure coming out on the short end and have little hopes of improving the situation. Climatically we had one of the best years in many a moon. Total precipitation for the year was 16.68 plus. Normal is 13.69 inches. That's not all — 14.39 inches of this moisture waa received between April 1 and September 30. ., By the way,'our last killing frost in the spring was May 22 and the first killing frost this fall was October 23. That's 154 frost free days compared to the normal of 123. No -wonder we had so many good ripe tomatoes this fall. Things might have been better but we certainly have seen them much worse. The packages, on * Old Nick's sled' indicate it was a good year: '■ <§*—r Hospital Notes Admitted: Russell Cook, Baker; Mrs. Robert Goroski, Baker; Richard Price, Baker; Allison Coldwell, Troy; Margaret Brengle, Baker; Siebert Howe, Plevna; Scott Boyd, Ekalaka; .YLyle Randle, Baker; Mrs. Albert Jans, Plevna; Mrs. -Tarry Setinc, Mill Iron; Mrs. John Heim, Baker; Mrs. Wanda Thielen, Plevna; Mrs. Parnell Waanuk, Baker; Susan G.

Local dialing and direct distance dialing will be inaugurated simultaneously. Special central office equipment is being installed enabling, local phones, to be switched to centralized automatic message accounting equipment, necessary for direct distance dialing or-DDD. Calls will then be directed automatically to the distant city desired. A perforated tape will record details of calls for billing purposes. Telephone users will dial "1" to connect to DDD equipment, then dial the regular seven-digit number is in Montana. If outside of. the state the number "1" plus the distant area, code, ,for example 303 for: Colorado,- will toe dialed followed by the 'local number of the phone being' called. An operator will ask for the number of the telephone from which a call is dialed. Only station-to-station calls can be dialed, direct, Nesset said. •■ Personal directory blue books which list the area .code numberB for all parts of the. United States where., direct dialing is possible will be mailed to telephone subscribers. Over 75 million telephones in 40,000 cities will be at fingertips of local customers under the new system. New" seven-digit numbers are being assigned and on one will retain his present manual number, Nesset said. '—& •*♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦•)•»♦ ».»> »♦ ♦♦♦♦♦•>• -- _**•* ..2 •«./• Gov.

Whether the past year has brought all you desired will not seem too important as you again make resolutions to live by during the [ next year. Your soul wHI probably be cleansed after making them whether they art to be kept or broken. )A Looking forward.to the new'year we find it is leap-year which will certainly improve^?* things in our newspaper offce. JLYmidweek holiday is hard to en-jlureY It disrupts everything around the shop as well as our adyerttsers who have copy they want processed for the week. Every day seems to be Monday and, in our - business that isn't too good. However, leap year will smile on us and place • the next year's, holidays on Friday and we are already looking-forward to it. This just proves that "it's an ill wind." _ ,,' * Y If you /have driven past the . lake this week you, will see that skaters are really enjoying this mild weather. At, night fires can be "seen . on the lake's, shore .which" with tht\aid of <a full bioon aid thosej who enjoy the sport. , j.^"'" * The' police department is making the request that cars be ke^t off the" lake while so many are skating as there is a possibility of injuring someone. You might take heed of this suggeston as more offcial pressure will be made if not adhered to. . r We are. often Jbeset with strange requests in a newspaper office. The one Which tops the list this week is one fdr';a white cat. If . you know of an available white pet stop in our.' office and we can give you the name of the person who will make it a good * - home...
