Una 22 Dairy farmers dump milk Gannett News Service Dairy farmers in several states dumped their milk Wednesday or diverted it to charitable groups to protest a steep decline in prices. Clint Van Vleet, a Sulphur Springs, Texas, dairyman and president of the 250-member Texas Milk Producers Association, said 250,000 to 500,000 gallons of milk were dumped in that state. "We are sending a message to the government that we want the price system thrown in the scrap heap," Van Vleet said. Organizers had expected farmers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Missouri, Texas, California and New Mexico to take part in the one-day action. But organizer Darin Von Rudin of Westby, said he had no word on how many actually took part and did not expect overall figures to be available.

Van Vleet said he has asked U.S. Agriculture Secretary Dan Glick-man to ask the president to create a task force of consumers and farmers to study milk prices. The basic price farmer are paid for their milk has declined from more than $15 per 100 pounds in September to $11.30 per 100 pounds at the end of December. Farmers say the formula the government uses to set a base price for milk needs to reflect their production costs. MCI cuts rates for long-distance Gannett News Service MCI has quietly slashed the flat-rate it charges its best longdistance customers by 20 percent, -raising the possibility of a future price war.

People who signed up for the MCI One calling plan since Jan. 1 are -being charged 12 cents a minute for long-distance calls as long as they spend at least $25 a month with MCI. Those who spend less get the old 15-cent-minute rate.

The announcement could change the business of connecting people to the Net. The company, called, will only charge its customers a one-time $59 fee to get necessary software, including Netscape Navigator.

"It makes tons of sense," said Charles Brewer, CEO of MindS-pring, an Atlanta-based ISP. Brewer said he's been toying with the idea of offering a less-expensive service that includes ads. Bigger. net's announcement might help push him that way. "I don't know if ads can support a totally free service," Brewer said.

"But people will have a choice between service subsidized by ads and a more expensive service that's not. One way or another, we are definitely going to pursue the same idea." aTyou cant matt the April 15 tax-filing deadline t. Rud Ttntf Federal Income tnu.
