The Salina Journal Wednesday, January 15,1986 Page 10 Strapped Idaho farmers launch tractorcade BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Scores of financially strapped farmers, declaring that they "need markets, not government subsidies," launched a convoy of tractors across southern Idaho from the state Capitol Tuesday to publicize their problems. "The major industry in the state is dying," Dan Adamson, one of the convoy's organizers, told the small crowd that braved subfreezing temperatures to see the start of the 280-mile, three-day trek. EPA issues But Adamson, a farmer and lawyer, said "this is not a protest." "This is a unifying rally," he said. "The government hasn't done it for us. The farmers have to get together and do it for themselves.'' A dozen tractors and farm trucks, including a tractor-trailer carrying 50,000 pounds of potatoes, pulled away from the Capitol at mid-morning, bearing banners with slogans saying "They've taken everything else. This is all we have left," and "Fanners will go under just before America does." The action came a day after Agriculture Secretary John Block announced new price support provisions under the 1985 Farm Bill that drastically reduce supports from previous levels in an attempt to make U.S. commodities more competitive on international markets. Fanners say they need the supports until their commodities can get a fair price in the market.

FIRST FOURSQUARE CHURCH Elmhurst & Ohio Pastor-Al Burkes m The Photo warning on ozone layer : WASHINGTON (AP) - The Environmental Protection Agency is trying to determine whether predictions that the earth's protective ozone layer is thinning more rapidly than previously thought means there will be more smog in U.S. cities in the next century. At high altitudes, ozone makes life on earth possible because relatively high concentrations between 12 and 30 miles up screen ultra-violet rays from the sun. At low altitudes, however, it can make breathing more difficult because it helps form smog. A draft report made available Monday from 150 scientists in 11 countries says latest data and mathematical models of the atmosphere lead to conclusions that high- altitude ozone could drop by 4.9 percent to 9.4 percent if emissions of a chemical frequently used as an aerosol propellant continue at 1980 rates. Chlorofluorocarbon chemicals attack ozone, and for that reason were banned as aerosol propellants in the United States in 1978. Worldwide, however, emissions of these chemicals are increasing by as much as 5 percent a year. They are widely used because their nonflammable, non-toxic properties make them particularly useful as refrigeration fluids, solvents and foam blowing agents. The latest study suggests ozone could increase at lower levels — in effect being compressed — over some parts of the globe even as the overall amount in the atmosphere decreases. "That has us seriously concerned" because of pollution implications, said John Hoffman, an EPA policy analyst. The agency has commissioned studies to see what the predicted increase in low-altitude ozone will mean. "We want to see if our ability to meet the national ambient air quality standards will be compromised by higher background," Hoffman said. The report, co-ordinated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, also predicted for the first time that a long-anticipated decrease in the high-altitude ozone layer would depend on latitude — being smallest near the equator and getting worse to the north and south. Outside about 30 degrees north and south, ozone would increase up to about 12 miles in altitude, even though the total amount of ozone in the atmosphere above those places would be less. There could be smaller low-level increases up to about latitude 40 degrees. The report gave a range of predictions for ozone depletion according to latitude — 4 percent to 5 percent at the equator, 8 percent to 9 percent at 40 degrees north — the latitude of Philadelphia — and 9 percent to 14 percent at 60 degrees north, the latitude of Oslo and Leningrad. Ozone can worsen breathing difficulties and 49 cities do not meet existing federal standards for ozone concentrations. Though eventual depletion of high- altitude ozone has been predicted for more than 10 years, scientists have been unable to say whether it has begun. Ozone concentrations fluctuate according to small changes in solar radiation and can also be temporarily reduced by volcanic eruptions. Less protective ozone at high altitudes means more ultraviolet rays would reach earth, causing more skin cancer, more eye damage in cattle, more crop damage and shorter lives for plastics.
