Biise. administrator of markets fiir the Idaho Department of Agriculture. ''Williams warned there have been a few instances where f a r m e r s ami warehouse operators -have loaded (rucks with grain and hay without securing Ihe proper idcii- lifiralion from the trucker. The loads were never delivered to the consignee and Hie truckers were never heard from again. The stale agriculture official explained that in some cases. Ihe truckers were licensed and bonded by other stales but this does no! necessarily provide proper protection for Idaho farmers and warehousemen. "Make sure they are licensed and hfinded in Idaho," Williams cautioned. A track buyer is defined by the stale law which requires their licensing and bonding as one who obtains from a producer or warehouseman a n y f a r m products i s p e c i f i c a l l y g r a i n , beans, peas, seeds, wool or hay) for resale. storage or processing.

The study, conducted by the Community Nutrition Institute, alsp' shows' 17 per ccnl of Idahoans are eligible for food stamps but only a fourth of those are'.gctling them Only Wyoming. North Dakota and Massachusetts had a lower per/cenlagc of eligible people buying food stamps, according lo Ihe study "I-CO is the direct result." Ihey said.

However, the cosl can be eslimated by malching up sales figures with rebate lisls. General Motors Corp. spent close to S12.9 million lo move out 49,000 small cars in its rebate program in Ihe final 10 days of January. Ford Motor Co. shelled out $12.7 million for about 35.000 cars. American Mold's Sl.C million, and Chrysler Corp., originator of the program. S3.U million mi In.t)t)0 cars.

Resides the four small car assembly plants closed this week, eight t h a i build medium and f u l l - s i z e d cars will be closed. In addition, two truck plants and three manufacturing plants are closed. While Ihe total inventory of unsold cars dropped by fewer than .'lO.uOO units by Ihe end of January, small car stocks were reduced by about 100,000, according lo Ihe i n d u s t r y ' s statistical agency.

Chrysler, which began January w i t h a IM-day supply of cars, mostly s m a l l m o d e l s , whittled its slock to a 107-day supply mainly because of the rebate program it originated.

Williams wonders if t h e $10.000 bond is sufficient in these days of inllated prices. "Just a couple of loads can be worth more than thai and il would behoove f a r m e r s and warehousemen nol to let any one buyer have a second or. al most, a third load without receiving payment fnr Ihe first load." he said. The stale official noted thai in almost all cases where loads disappeared, the farmers or warehousemen f a i l e d lo determine if the trucker or trucking firm was licensed and bonded. "Trucks thai ;ire bonded must display an official, three-inch by seven-inch decal, bearing the words 'Idaho Uonded Track Buyer' and indicating Ihe ex- .piralion dale of |he license.HJIO/ bond," Williams 'siiid. "If 'trie decal becomes illegible or is missing for any reason, a phone call lo Ihe slate agriculture department will verify whether or nol Ihe (ruck is licensed and bonded." He added t h a t truckers should request replacements for damaged or missing decals. W i l l i a m s provided some pointers for f a r m e r s or warehousemen wlm are about lo load a truck for a track buyer. 1. Check to sec t h a t (he tractor has a valid decal. These should be displayed on each side of the power u n i t , just behind (he door of the cab. Also, record Ihe numbers of both the traclor and the trailer license plates. 2. Check (he driver's piTsonal chauffeurs license for positive identification. :i. See that the invoice under- bill of lading is properly signed by the driver. 4. If ihe iruckcr is one that is hauling for hire--not involved in the purchase but strictly as a transporter--be sure vim know the individual or firm he is hauling for. "Most iinporlant," Williams added, "know your Imcker and gel a .signature." Forecast director named SALT I.AKK CITY. U t a h Dr. George Crcssman, director.
