Farm Roundup By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON- (AP). - An Agriculture 'Department report issqed today ihowl growing competiton for the'- Asian farm market. L*st year the United States exported only ft billion in farm goods to the far east, « drop of $200 million' from 1968, analyst CUrance E. Pike says in the report published by the Foreign Agricultural Service. Australia and New Zealand, predominately agricultural, ood consumption has risen noderately in recent years, and hough rice still is the basic food or' most people their diets are diversifying. pow the most immediatt competition for American farm er». Part of their effort is related to the possible entry of Britain into the European Common Market, a move which would reduce a major historical outlel for Australian and New Zealand farm products. This possibility and the fact that the two countries are seeking trade expansion generally are considered serious obstacles for further U.S. growth in the Asian markets, Pike said. Another factor involves Japan, which receives nearly $1 billion or approximately one- sixth of all U.S. farm exports. Pike notes in his report thai Japan's policy of diversifying sources of its farm imports wil mean larger competition for that market. "The major reasons behind such a policy are the desire to hedge against supplies being re _ _ v duced or shut off from principal fish ponds sources and to encourage other business in countries to purchase more o Japan's industrial products,' Pike said. "Also, developing countrie are putting strong pressure on Japan to take more of the! farm products in order to re duce their unfavorable trade WASHINGTON (AP) - After i two-year dropout because of Irought, South Africa is expect- d to re-enter world feed grains rade as an exporter this year, ays the Agriculture Department.

It reduced the Nixon Administration's request by $555 million to $1.645 billion. All of the cut was made in economic assistance, pushing funds for the Alliance for Progress, development loans, technical assistance and supporting assistance down to $1.3 billion. A $350 million request for military assistance, most of it for Asia, was left untouched. Most military assistance is now provided as part of the defense appropriation bill. The foreign aid has always been a favorite target of the budget cutters because it has no visible constituency, though most of the money is spent on goods in this country. The committee said this new appropriation would pust past .he $200 billion mark the U.S. outlay during the last 25 years to help 123 nations recover ;rom or prevent war and to develop their economies.

Still another factor is increased food grain production in parts of Asia, notably India and Pakistan, which have been traditional big markets for U.S. grain, particularly wheat. Despite all this, Pike says, the Far Eastern market is growing. In most countries per capita Reduced RIO DE JANEIRO - One hundred pounds of harvested black pepper seeds are reduced to 30 pounds of product by hot water and sippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, the National Geographic Society says.

Camera News By IRVING DESFOR AP Newsfeatures Normally, college graduation Lime is the season for job hunting by youngsters who have completed their education. These are not normal limes, however, in many colleges in the nation. But even though college classes, routines and ceremonies are off schedule, many young people are seeking that first suitable step lowards a satisfying and rewarding career. In the field of photography, it is evident that film making has become a young peoples' target. It is an area in which creative new techniques and ideas jolt the established industry when a film scores wilh critical acclaim, audience favor and a financial hulls-eye. Example: "Woodstock," an independent film gamble by two youths- photographer Michael Wadleigh and producer Bob Maurice- plus the financial backing and distrubution facilities of Warner Bros. The film is a tribute to the young generation represented by Mike Wadleigh. Operating as chief cameraman and directing 15 camera crews, he documented the three-day rock festival completely. Then, aesthetically, he directed the film editing and through electrifying multiscreen images and explosive sound, he eproduced the staggering Voodstock experience itself. With "Woodstock" a national hit, Wadleigh has prestige and achievement In act as spokesman for young film makers. He lad some advice recently about ob opportunities for a beginner, 21-y e a r -o 1 d Gerald Pallor, Hushing, N.Y. Gerald had graduated from New York Universi- .y's film school and worked briefly in Los Angeles on several temporary film projects. "In my book," Wadleigh said, 'a college graduale in film making gets first preference. It shows he has displayed discipline already in completing an assignment--getting through college. It's an immediate advantage over a school 'dropout.' "Secondly, concentrate on filming experience. Good cameramen are desperately needed. A novice can get experience economically by constantly shooting wilh super 8mm film. Make documentaries of events in your locale and use real people in actual situations. You cnn distill the drama of real life I happenings of real events nil! around you. Experiment and keep shooting. That's the way to become an expert. "Finally, you get a job by ceaselessly 'healing on doors.' Look up everybody in the film and related businesses and visit them personally or wrilc. Then maintain all your contacts by! constant reminders. By asking, you'll find out who's about to film what . . . then make yourself available.
