t r , NOVEMBER 25, IS-iO (ARK.)' COUTJIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN erest armers Export Proposal On Foods Killed U.S. Turns Thumbs Down on Program In Special Meeting WASHINGTON, Nov. 25. H>)—The United States turned thumbs down on the proposed International Commodity Clearing House today, to all f tents killing it, U. S. Hire-fen Agriculture Direc- r Stanley Andrews, a former Ar- kansau, said "the United states does not believe the mechanism (ICCII) suggested.. .is a short term solution to the problem of trade* imbalance and currency hiconvcrt- abilily and it is definitely not a long-term solution." "This solution is not sufficient," he added, "and since the problem cuts across international trade and international fiscal policies, we must seek an alternate approach." The United States is by far the world's largest food producer for export and is the key to the proposed plan, under the pjan, the U. S. was to sell its surpluses either at low prices for currency convertible into dollars, or at commercial prices for soft currency to be held In the clearing house against a lime when the money might become convertible. Andrews spoke at a meeting of the United Nations Food and Agriculture organization held unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day. The tes- sion followed up a meeting Wednesday night in which Spain's unpopularity with the U. N. was demon- st^ted by a 25-19 vote rejecting her bid for FAO membership.

Tex., Nov. 25—M>)— Southwest Rice markets strengthened ayain this week, according Io the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Production and Marketing Administration. Active domestic inquiry and Improved demand from foreign buyers were influencing factors in this .strength. .Also, with the southern crop nearly harvested and most of the rough rice sold or in private or public storage, pressure on growers to get rid of their surplus rice decreased. The market for short grain rice was fairly active in Arkansas and Texas, but very few sales were reported in Louisiana. Prices of by vetch. Corn and soybeans will be planted in 1951 and in 1952 oals will b^ followed by lespcdeza. The above rotation with additional fields to provide gia/tng will make all the feed necessary. Last year, young Runsick was selected as county champion in soil conservation and won a $50 savings bond for second place in the stale conter t . In addition to his work in soil saving, Runsick has completed 15 4-H Club projects.
