AG UNDER SECRETARY SAYS Farmer not Ward of Government By DILLON GRAHAM Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Under Secretary of Agriculture J. Phil Campbell says most urban people think farmers are wards of the government and that they do not work under the capitalistic free enterprise system. "Nothing could be further from the truth," he said. "Farmers have always had to compete with more fellow producers of any specific commodity then their counterparts outside of agriculture," Campbell said. The under secretary said when the American public learns this basic fact, there will be understanding and appreciation of the necessity and importance of Agriculture Department programs. "It's an economic fact that farmers are expected by American consumers to produce a surplus. I seriously doubt there are any consumers in the United States who want farmers to produce a shortage," he said. Campbell said that agricultural shortages would be advantageous for the few persons in the economy who would have a surplus to sell on a short market, and also would be highly beneficial to farm producers. t He pointed out that farm production is not nearly as manageable as in industries where the production line can be closed off when the market demands are met. "Once agricultural production is placed in operation in order to produce for the demands of the market, it continues to produce to the point of a surplus," Campbell said in a statment for the Mississippi State Agricultural Conservation and Stabilization Service at Biloxi. "It should be obvious to consumers and producers alike that agriculture's constant overproduction and the delivery of this overproduction to the market place makes it extremely difficult-and often impossible-to obtain a price from the market that adequately covers the cost of production, much^ less return a reasonable profit/' he said. Campbell said the Nixon administration does not believe in cheap food. "We believe that the farmer should receive and the housewife should expect to pay food prices in the market place that will allow the farmer to stay in business *nd maintain a satisfactory standard of living for his family."

Seek Ban on Whale Killings WASHINGTON (AP) — Conservationists have asked tbait no more whales be killed for a decade to prevent extinction of the ocean-roaming mammals.

"We are confident that when the peoples of the world understand that we -are grinding up brains and bodies of great whales to turn them into dog food «md chicken feed, they wdH demand an end to the slaughter," she said. The Mematioiniall Whaling Commission was established in 1946 to conserve the ocean resource. Friends of Earth said that because the commission sets quotas in terms of whale oil, rather than in numbers of different fiipeclies, whalers already have killed off most of the giant blue whales and big fin- CLEARANCE SALE SUMMER FASHIONS REDUCED TO CLEAR •DRESSES •SPORTSWEAR-Coordinates •SHORTS •PANTS •TOPS SAVE ON EVERYTHING YOU WOULD EXPECT TO FIND DURING OUR BIG CLEARANCE backs and now are killing smaller species m increai&inig numbers.
