PAGE2 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE* Saturday/ Nov.28,1964 TRIBUNE FARM & HOME PACE— COUNTY NEWS - VIEWS FROM FARM- HOME i CITY On The Farm Front (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By GAYLORD P. GODWIN United Press International WASHINGTON (U'PI) —The administration's concept of a great society is causing changes in the Agriculture Department. The war on poverty is broadening the focus of the department on commodity programs to include programs concerning people. The department has been given the job of providing • rural areas with some of the same sort of opportunities that exist in urban areas. Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman said the job ahead for the department's Rural Areas Development pro gram is to find the means of overcoming the disparities between rural America and urban America. "Where we have been concerned primarily with plants, animals, and land, we must be equally concerned with people," Freeman told the National Advisory Committee on Rural Areas Development "and where we have ' been concerned only with agriculture as an industry —with the production, marketing, and consumption of the produce of the land—we must be equally concerned with the non- farm rural economy. "We must remember 'that farming, as such, can provide a decent income, under present circumstances, for only one out Countdown (2) Days TIPTON MERCHANTS WILL HAVE AN OPEN HOUSE Tipton Retail Merchants ASSOCIATION of eight to 10 of the families now living in | rural America.

'Freeman said President Johnson has given thedepart- and compelling 'assume- a full within the federal government to help rural whole, attain its rightful place within the great society." WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Agriculture Department predicts the farmer's share of the consumer foodj dollar in 1965 will be 36 cents—1 cent less than the average for 1964. The department said a slight decrease appears likely in the farm value of foods in 1965. This, combined with a small increase in marketing charges, likely will drop the farmer's 1965 share of j the consumer's food dollar a penny below the 1964 share. I The agency j said - increased supplies of some vegetables and fruits in 1965 are expected to result in prices below the relatively high prices of 1964, able. Prices of eggs and tur keys also may be down from 1964, the department said. The farm value of bakery and cereal products is expected to be about the same in 1965 as in 1964. The Agriculture Department calculates that the U.S. farm export market in fiscal 1964-65 took the output of 80 million harvested acres. This was about one acre out of every four harvested. On a value basis, U.S. agricultural exports wer^ equivalent to 16 per cent of total cash receipts from farm mar ketings. States with the largest share of agricultural commodity exports in 1963-64 were: Illinois, ?504.2 million;' Texas, $483".8 million; California, $420.6 million; Kansas, $336.8 million; Iowa $330.7 million; and North' Carolina, $321.4 million. Other important agricultural exporters were Indiana, $250.9 million; Minnesota, $221.5 million; Ohio, $201.4 million; Nebraska, $205.2 million; and Arkansas, $207 million. The Grain Market News said soybean exports from Oct. • 1 through Nov. 13 were at a record level of 40 million bushels. This is 11 million bushels more than in the same period last year- IMPORTANT REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER AN INVESTMENT WITH AMERICAN NATIONAL TRUST 1. Trust assets now in excess of §6,000,000.

Clary has urged- all farmers in Tipton County who will have seed to sell or sow next Spring to get seed tested during the Fall or early. Winter. Clary offered to help farmers .in this testing program by supplying instructions for" drawing samples and distributing special seed envelopes for sending them to' the State Seed Laboratory at Purdue for a free test. We will also furnish information needed in the laboratory to determine possible dormancy and the legal status of the seed. The agent warned that seed advertised for sale by farmers is required to be tested and tagged and must be free of prohibited noxious weed seeds and must not contain excessive amounts of other weed seeds to be legally sold. Since the test is free, all farmers should take advantage of this service Clary .said. Burbon Beef Show Angus steers proved victorious in every division of the 1964 Bourbon Beef Show, recently concluded at Louisville, Kentucky.

Why not ask us? you, Your Child And School By DAVID NYD1CK UPI Education Specialist The future of our nation and the world depends in large part upon the accomplishments of our . educational system. With this in mind, every individual and community must attempt to develop and support the finest quality school program which is possible. Education is everyone's business: It is an. investment which pays continuing dividends to all of society. A successful business should spend its money effectively and efficiently. Citizens who want to support the schools often wonder what parts of the school budget should be emphazized in order to obtain quality in the educational program. The real question is, "what makes a good school system''"' The over-aii answer ts money. Good education costs dollars. A recent survey has shown that i there is, a direct relationship j between cost and results. The' better school systems spend j more money. , Therefore communities must first be willing to spend the necessary dollars. This willingness is closely related to confidence that the schools are us-. ing the tax dollars efficiently. This means that there must be an effort to avoid waste. It also means that staf members led by administration should make every possible effort to order and purchase materials which meet the necessary standards at the lowest possible cost. The first implication is thatj any school system needs an ef-. ficient business office. This should be under the direction of a qualified business administrator. His job involves efficient distribution and use of supplies, preparation of bids specifications, purchasing of supplies, maintenance of equipment arid, buildings, and obtaining state aid. These and other duties are most important to the efficient use of tax dollars. Admittedly the many small school systems with only one or two schools cannot afford a full rime business manager. Such school systems should choose, their regular administrators with this need in mind. Perhaps a school board member can be helpful in 'this area. The real answer is that such small school systems should not exist. The board and community should make every effort to expand by combining with a neighboring system or systems.
