Associated Preii ·Writer AARHUS, Denmark (AP) -Agriculture is still' the ,klngpin of the Danish economy but 20 farms go out of .business every day and the industry is undergoing a profound readjustment. In 1950 Denmark had 200,000 farms. Today tho number is closer to 150,000 and the attrition rate has Arisen to 7,000 annually. . . . . The face of Denmark ,,, changed. Swank restaurants occupy buildings where- the- Jensens or the Nielsens' farmed for centuries. Old 'thatched farmhouses become summer. Cottages for well-heeled Danes or foreign are taken over--once offlclal-re- tthc commodity price paid to I f«rm«r. · ; Equalliatlon funds are operated to protect the farmers from the sharpest fluctuations. Gov ernmcnt help comes mainly In the form of promotional activity abroad, export credits and a quantity discounts system aimed at stabilizing the prices of some raw materials. Half of Nation's Exports Under tliis system, Danish agriculture accounts for almost half of all the nation's exports. With two thirds of all production going abroad, the farmer is particularly sensitive to changes in quirements industry. are met--for light Cheese market exports to States Were hit when the American market was suddenly flood- Other land remains In agrfcul- ed by similar cheeses sent In at ture once the farm'ef leaves, but low dumping prices, mainly goes to enlarge som cnelghbor-" " · - - - - ing spread or to provide .the site for a new dairy or bacon factory. This is part of Ihe. rationalization which organizes 87 per cent of the dairy indusfry into increasingly .larger -cooperates. New Production Records Agriculture has succeeded In achieving new production records on the basis of far fewer farm units. It has yet to succeed in achieving all export market goes to enlarge some neighbor- lihpod for the nation's;swarms of smallholders. For the'life-long farmer sell- 'rom pie countries of the European Economic. Community. These resulted In Import restrictions which cut downgrade for Danes and dumpers alike. The nation's farmers have been doing well with their bacon, expecially in Britain. However, the Danes send up a re- Ing/out and'retiring to some newly built sptiuievcl in the village, it is not rhuch consolation that his land may now be worked in a larger and more efficient holding. Huge erosions have been made in (he father- to-son tradition of handing down a farm through Ihe generations. Compared with 30 years ago when 26 per cent of the population worked on the land, only 12 per cent is employed In agriculture today in a country of 4.8 million, Part-Tims Job Farming has become a pnrt- time job for 10 per cent of the farmers. It's almost routine for small farmers in parts of the Jutland Peninsula to tend tho pigs in the early morning and veal, spend the day working in n factory. Others send their wives out to work; many farm women turn up in shops, hospitals and homes for old people. The Danish government does . .

Herded Cattle For centuries, Danes herdec their caltle into Nortli Germany in big drives. Later the cattle reached Germany by ship anc until Common Market Import levies began to bite a total of 250,000 live animals were exported to this market every year. Last year this was down to 100,000. The picture is saved from unrelieved gloom by Italy's rising prosperity and a corresponding demand for Imported beef and Debate on Vietnam Seen Frustrating to Americans Swltchtd to Pigs Many farmers have switched to pigs and concentrated on the British market, which takes 40 per cent of all Danish agricultural exports. This underpinning By WILLIAM L. RYAN The Vietnam debate has b ome a source of acute Amer an frustration. It is a debate In which bo lie "pro" Vietnam policy forci nd the "anti" forces can claii to he right and produce arg ncnts that sound valid. Qui Hen, both can appear, at 11 ame time, to be logical an orrect. For example: Anti--"Johnson's war" ha ecome "Nixon's war," becaus 'resident Nixon Is carrying 01 conditions xac "y the same policy as h' the United redecessor. Began In 1950 Pro--It is neither Johnson or Nixon's war. President Tri nan began the involvement n ong ago as 1950 by aiding th rench colonial power with ml ary missions in the war wit ic Vielminh. President Eisen ower made a U.S. commitmei o South Vietnam in 1954. Pres ent Kennedy began the escala- on In 1901. Anti - President K e n n e d , ommilted only military advis ers. President Johnson escala ed the involvment to comba status and the present adminis tralion has done little to chang that. Pro--Nixon needs lime anc support. President Kennedy lad he lived, probably woulc lave been in a similar situation )ecause his chief advisers Jean Rusk and Robert S. Me Samara, became the chief advisers for President Johnson on Vietnam. Anil--We should never have become involved. After the Jedges during World War II to elf-determination, we aided a tolonial power to fight an indi- enous rebellion against colo- liallsm. Pro--We had no colonial am- ilion. We wanted only to deny ew territory to world commu- ism. Remember, we were in- olved at the time in a bloody r ar with Communist territorial mbltions in Korea. Anti--Once the French were efeated we worsened matters tier the 1954 Genvea agreements. If elections were held In 958 as the final Geneva dccla- Typewriters All Makes--Portable and Standard same time binds Denmark to conformity with British objectives in Euro)e. 'It'would be clearly disastrous it the British achieved Common Market membership and Denmark was left outside. Thus, the Danes along with Norway and the Irish Republic, keep their own applications for membership squarely before thc EEC.

There wcr clear signs that he was basica ly a nationalist along with h followers. Pro--The United States an South Vietnam rejected the fin; Geneva declaration and did m become party to it. The recor shows that Ho had been a Com Intern agent for 20 years befor Ihat. There was a clear risk leaving communism in com mand of a sensitive strategi area, threatening not only th mainland of Asia but such im portant nations as huge Indom sia. Geneva Violation Anli--The United States vii lated the Geneva accords b winging In munitions and sup )lies along with military advis rs, and In fact making an all ance with Saigon, which wa contrary to the accords. Pro--The Communists violal ed first. Vletminh cadres re mained behind in South Viet nam after they were suppose o regroup in the North, an quickly began guerrilla wa iressure. Hanoi ignored the re quirement to get its troops ou f Laos and supported a Com nunist-led rebel movemen here, too. China and Russia joth aided the Communis ause. Anti--for years we supportec harsh dictatorial regime un er Ngo Dinh Diem, and other fter him, all unrepresentative 11 military-dominated, all rid- led with corruption. Pro-South Vietnam becami republic by referendum here was a series of nations ections thereafter. The Com- mnlsts never held a free elec- on. Moreover, you can't expect country like South Vietnam merging from a history of onarchy and colonialism, to ccome democratic overnight, nd you can't nourish the seeds democracy in time of war. Anli--We have no moral right do what we are doing. What appened in Vietnam was a civ- war between Vietnamese. Pro--It was an aggression ross an established border to elp a Communist-backed insur- gency. The Viet Cong's Nationa Liberation Front was created I Hanoi by the Lao Dong--Com munlst--party. Anti--Nobody conferred Or the United Stales a mission t make over the world In Its own image or gave it the role world policeman. Pro--Four U.S. president have said American interest required stopping Communis expansion in Southeast Asia that a legitimate governmen asked and received aid. Actual ly, we are opposing .an atlemp of one halion lo conquer another and attempts of Communist na lions to remake the world in their image. Longtit U. S. War Anti--Vietnam is the longes war in our history. We are logged down in something tha looks endless and hopeless, Pro -- We have never had to :ight a war like it in the past ^ounterinsurgency takes time It took Britain 12 years to end a Communist insurrection in Ma laya. Anti--Malaya was different Host rebels were Chinese, easi- y distinguishable from Malays and could be isolated. The Vietnamese movement is indigenous and cannot be separated from he people. The situation is one which should be solved only by he Vietnamese themselves. Pro--Vietnam is part of global struggle. Issues of inter- r ention and people's war are involved. Remember, the Soviet Jnion intervened with arms in lungary and Czechoslovakia. If Ms can be extended to non- Communist areas, the world be- omes a very unsafe place. Anli--We are 10,000 miles way from Vietnam, fighting he wrong war in the wrong lace at Ihe wrong time--and or the wrong South Viet- amese. Pro--Time and place are not rong if we are trying to pre- enl worse in Ihe fulure. The clear weapons. China is a big facl of life there and Is bound to be an overwhelming Chinese influence in Ihe long run. Pro--Things change,- and so do regimes. . We are buying time, denying strategic territory to hostile regimes while we try lo help Saigon create a viable state. Anti--If there was aggression, the Americans already have stopped it.. A situation exists in which Vietnam can decide its own future. What's the matter with a coalition government to end the bloodshed? . Pro--As soon as the Amert cans left, the pressure would rise, backed by Russia, China or both. Hanoi leaves no-doubt of its intention to dominate the South, and if it does there will a bloodbath.

It would be healthy rather than otherwise We should pull out at least our combat forces as quickly as possible- and leave only logistic forces behind. '.

Clark R. Mollenhoff, an aide to President Nixon, has sent senators a memorandum saying the poll by the trial lawyers lacks validity because "at best may or may not be a representative group of trial lawyers, who may or may not be familiar with the details of the Hayns- worlh record."

However, t takes many more to fight this ort of war. The ratio of men needed against guerrillas is ilgh because of the nature of juerrilla tactics. They are fight- ng both guerrilla forces and egulars, both armed with the lost modern weapons. As for he people, didn't the national lections indicate popular sup ort? Don't the Viet Cong forces ely 'heavily on terrorism to keep people in line? As for Viet- namization and U.S. equipment: that process is only about 10 months old and hasn't had a chance yet. Modern equipment up to a short time ago had all been in the hands of Americans. Also, it must be remembered' everywhere, but particularly In the third-world, now the main arena of world struggle. Anti--The Vietnamese have a right to resist foreign forces on heir soil, We should accept coa- Ition, accept the Viet Cong into a new regime.
