When you buy your kid a Thrasher or Phantom BMX. your Schwinn dealer will do just about everything but pedal. Any department store will sell you a BMX. But frankly, BMX bikes aren't always their department. What to ask before you buy a BMX Bicycle carefully fitted? Kxpert assembly and adjustment? Free 30-day tune-up? Parts and accessories available? No-Time-Limit Warranty? Schwinn Dealer Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Some Discount/ Department Stores Ci'xxl luck Some charge extra Are you kidding? Maybe In some cases chance you might spend a few bucks assembling it, too. Happily, there's still a place where you can find the bicycle your son or daughter wants with the service you need. -^ The sign out front says -«*«S8f ZiisS$L* And you can save a few bucks on a discount store BMX. && But there's a "Schwinn:' The quick < Thrasher and responsive Phantom \ are perfect ways to get your kids into BMX without getting' taken for a ride. Because your Schwinn dealer won't sell a bike if it doesn't fit perfectly. Or if it's not assembled, adjusted, and ready to roll. And he'll back it all up with a remarkable No-Time-Limit Warranty, part of Schwinn's exclusive 5-I'oint Protection Plan. So if you're l(x>king for a really g(x)d BMX for the money, go to a nearby Schwinn dealer. He'll do everything he can to make your kid's cycling as easy as possible.

Fifth St. Salina, Kansas IB right future ahead for wheat exports? fi'COLBY (HNS) - Agricultural exports may be the only bright spot in today's farm economy, the chairman of U.S. Wheat Associates, a national wheat exporting promotion group, told the annual meeting of the Kansas 'Wheat Commission. • Bill Hulse, an Oregon wheat fanner who is chairman of that group, said the future looks bright for wheat exports. Hulse said this year's wheat exports are expected to total 1.9 billion bushels and should be equal in size to the entire United States wheat crop in 1977. Hulse attributed the growth in exports to increasing nutritional needs of foreign countries and the productive capacity of American agriculture. He alio said increased foreign consumption had been created by farmers through the USWA, which has been promoting wheat abroad since the late 1950s. Hulse cited several "success stories" in international marketing, among them South Korea, which has more than tripled its consumption of wheat since 1966 and buys exclusively from the United States. Hulse said USWA efforts in South Korea had started to lead that country away from rice as a staple food. He also said South Korea, which had formerly been a large recipient of Food for Peace funds, would be paying cash for wheat this year due to the proposed cutback in the Food for Peace program. He said USWA marketing efforts in Indonesia, a country with a population almost as large as our own, had resulted in nearly doubling wheat consumption in 10 years, increasing United States exports there seven times. The People's Republic of China has also developed as a major world market for American wheat in the past several years, Hulse said. China grew to be the largest market for American wheat last year, he said, and is expected to buy 330 million bushels this year. Hulse said recent cutbacks in the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service budget would indefinitely delay the construction of a pilot flour mill in China and would also delay the opening of a USWA office in Peking.
