The December 15, 1953 index, at 262 percent of the I910- 14 bse is one percent below the level of a year earlier. Compared with mid-November prices show minor changes for most items, the exception being hogs which advanced $2.80 a hundredweight in the 30-day per- iod from mid-November to mid- December. The advance in hog rices was the main reason for the 4 percent increase in the in- :lex of all commodities. Small rice increases were reported for ambs. eggs, hay, soybeans, corn, ats, rye, barley and flax while :mall price decreases were re- 3orted for cattle and butterfat. A comparison of mid-Decem- ber 1953 farm prices with a year -arlier, however, shows lower rices for all major South Da- kota farm commodities except hogs, eggs, soybeans and sweet- clover seed. The mid-December 1953 price of hogs averaged $22.- 30 at the farm level, an increase of $8.90 over the level of mid- December 1952. Eggs at 37.6 cents a dozen were up 4.2 cents.
