The principal targets of the national boycott will be Safeway and A.P. Stores, Father Biltz laid.

The real target is the giant corporation." he specified Members of the' committee elected Anne Banks as secre tary and this week will condud inlerviews with slore managers ef major stores in Fayetteville to determine if non-union lettuce Is sold. The major stores identified are Dillon's, IGA and Safeway. At the same time leaflets wil! be printed outlining the reasons for the boycott and soliciting support.

State Population Growth For 20 Years Indicated A 20 per cent population in- rease for Arkansas between 970 and 1990 is predicted by he University of Arkansas ndustrial Research and Ex- ension Center in Little Rock after compleling a seta of Arkansas population projec- ions. Based on the projections, lopulation of the % state should ncrease about 10'per cent by 980 and another 10 per cent by 1990. Results of the projection series show a total population 'or the stale by 1980 of 2,115,000--a growth of 191,705, or a relative increase of 10 p e r cent over the 1.923,295 counted 'or Arkansas in the 1970 census. The 1990 projections indicate a further growth of 217.000 over the 1980 figures. This anticipated growth in each 10-year period is based on e expectalion of a continuance the upward movement of r k a n s a s ' population ' erienced in the 1960's. The Center reported a most mportant aspect of the study that, whereas the population rojections indicate a 10 per ent increase between 1970 and 980 for the stale as a whole e labor force gains derived om Ihem may be as high as per cent. 4-H Club News GREATHOUSE SPRINGS Awards were presented to the c l u b ' s county achievement winners at a meeting held Tues day at the home of Bill Parette T h e senior award ir veterinary science and achieve' ment went to Jim Russell.
