Wlibri Hie older facilities were -turnUowrrreceiiUy lo'inaKc way 'for (lic"projcct,"planf "inrfiiagcr Dean Sanderson pointed out that rapid growth of operations had rendered the older facilities inadequate. Sanderson said the original service areas were bniit in [tie 1950's. "That's when our annual fresh park volume amounted !o ahnut 17 million pounds and peak e m p l o y m e n t was 200 people per shift for a one-month period only. Xow we're doing more than double that amount and employment peaks at over 250. Even during the winter months Ihe work force seldom drops below 200." When the plant opened in 1951, Sanderson said, the only vegetables processed were spinach and lima beans. Now, in addition, the plant processes small while onions, chopped and slrip onions and a vcgelable repacking line. .The , laller "employs CO workers 'lira two-" 1 'shift operation for 40 weeks. "The current modernization program," said Sanderson, "is evidence of our confidence (hat Ihe Nampa plant will continue to be a vital, growing unit in General foods' nation-wide network of modern food processing facilities, requiring some (100..000 man hours of labor annually." Until the work is completed Die office and management staff managers, and an engineer will operate out of four trailers which have been installed temporarily just outside the processing building. an area-wide weed control program in Eastern Idaho and his "outstanding leadership as president of the Idaho County Agents' Association." Sumsnn was congralulated for "successfully aiding alfalfa seed growers to establish a commission" and for his careful investigations into the possible development of a w i n e grape industry in Idaho. Mrs. Montgomery, who is a co-worker with Samson on the Extension Service s t a f f in Canyon County, was praised for her "sound program for training aides" in an educational program on nutrition. Also noted were her efforts lo organize clubs for young couples and her energy and resourcefulness in d e v e l o p i n g i n t e r e s t i n g educational programs in home economics. Miller and I'iez, specialists )ieadf|uarlered .il the Ul Research and Extension Center near Caldwell, were cited for their work in assisting agricultural producers. A new telephone auction system which has expanded the' m a r k e t i n g opportunities for lamb and sheep producers was organized with Miller's assistance. He also conducted training courses for workers in the meals induslry. Service lo dairymen "beyond the call of duly" was mentioned in the award given to Fiez. In his educational program, he works closely with dairy producers. New members accepted into Ihe honorary snciely included Peggy Pletcher, lioise.

OGDEN (UPI) - Wilh most grain exporters oul of Ihe market, and livestock and poultry growers keeping Iheir herds and flocks down, (he prices on nearly all grains are dropping rapidly in the Inlermountftin markets. Major grain dealers in Ogden say the market "has softened significantly in the past few weeks, and with caltle breeders and poultry brood (locks down, the conditions arc very bearish." The grain exchanges have watched prices drop as much as 75 cents a bushel on some varieties of wheat and burley, and corn and other feed grains are also rlcpresscd. A spokesman for K. J. \Vighl Inc. said recently U.S. grain exports have about all they need. "We usually SOT the traders lo foreign buyers controlling Ihe market through Ihc winter months.

This amount compares with income of 52.417.015 (or Ihe fourteen week first quarter period of last fiscal year "The increased earnings of the current fiscal year are principally attributable to Ihe high sugar prices which occurred in the October 1974 q u a r t e r .

F i r s t , sugar supplies u n d e r normal conditions in Ihe world as well as in the United Slates are still short and promise (o continue to be so al least through Ihe summer of 1375. This consideration exerts an upward pressure on prices. Consumption, on the other hand, appears (o have begun lo decline in the United States and is generally regarded as a manifestation of consumer resistance to the high prices of recent months. This c o n - sideration, of course, exerts downward pressure on prices. It was also cited that because of (he demise of the Sugar Act which has been a stabilizing influence for so many years, Ihc induslry is facing many uncertainties in the months ahead.

Report negates brushing teeth LONDON I UP!) - So you've been fighting with Johnny for years to get him lo brush his teeth. Don't blow your top. but u British government reporl say:i it's all been a waste of time. The report, based on a study of 13,00(1 children by dentists in Britain, says brushing leeth has no impact al all on the incidence of denial decay in children. Dismissing the popularly-held belief in Ihe efficacy of brushing leelh, the reporl compared (he impact »f children's denial habilsongroupsof 5yearolds in England and Wales. The sliidy, released Sunday, reported some toolb decay in 72 per cent of the children who brushed their lecth three limes a day. II said a little more than one-third of the youngsters had five or more decayed leelh. liul the study reported slightly less decoy, 71 per cent, among children who brushed under once a day. A litlle over a Ihird of the children had five or more leeth decayed. The investigators said they concluded that there is no systematic relationship belween the frequency of brushing leelh and the incidence nf denial decay. The experts even had a kind word to say .ibonl t h u m b sucking. They said the thumb suckers in the study were less likely than other children lo have cavities in live or more leelh. The dentists reasoned that children who suck Iheir thumbs are less likely lo suck other things, such as dolls, soft drinks and sweets. Sweets, in fact, remain Ihe chief problem in lonlti decay, Ihe report said. A 5 year old who does not eat sweets is only onc-lhird as likely In have five leelh decayed as a 5 year old who cats a large quantity of sweets, the reporl said. Less than half the mothers questioned were prepared In change Iheir children's diels to help denial health, Ihe sludy concluded.
