from TROOPERS TIPS Editor's Note: Readers having questions should semi them to Trooper Mike Kunz, Minnesota State Patrol, (X) Fergus Falls Daily Journal, Box 506, Fergus Falls, Minn. 56537. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? 1. You are on a stretch of narrow highway, carrying rather heavy traffic both ways. Air pressure from a passing truck-trailer forces your ear to the right so that your right wheels drop off the pavement. How do you get back on the highway? Answer: Without reducing speed, move your right wheels farther off the pavement. When you have enough space for the maneuver, return to the pavement on a 45-degree turn. Then straighten out within your driving lane. This can be done without loss of control. Never attempt an immediate recovery while your wheels are at the pavement edge. This often results in loss of control and is a cause of head-on collisions. 2. You want to make a left turn into a shopping center parking lot. But there is a double yellow line down the center of the street. Answer: Make your left turn, taking due care of oncoming traffic. The law says that you cannot cross the double yellow line (or a yellow lane on your side of the center) for the purpose of overtaking or passing another vehicle. It does not forbid a left turn into a Farm target price concept analyzed Fan$ (HP d. Mar. 6, 1974 13 driveway or alley. 3. The State Patrol reminds Minnesota motorist that the 1974 license plates were to be on the cars and trucks by Saturday, March 2,1974. Al this time the State Patrol is taking enforcement action for all those who do not have the current year plates on their vehicle. 4. One of our Troopers stated that he had just investigated an accident where better use of the turn signals may have prevented an accident. The law states that you must signal when you stop, or turn. When you change direction or reduce speed in traffic, you should let the other driver know what you plan to do. Signaling, either by hand and arm, or approved electrical device, is the proper way of informing the other motorists of your intentions. All signals must be given at least 100 feet before making the actual move to turn. Signals should be held until you are ready to make the actual turn. When you think about this, at highway speeds, you signal for 100 feet your turn signal only flashes once, so at highway speeds it would be advisable to start signaling sooner before making your turn off of the highway. In town it would be advisable to start signaling a block before your turn. But before changing lanes or moving right or left on the highway, check traffic around you. Make sure that other drivers know what you intend to do. By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Farming costs have risen so much that many authorities think it would be ruinous if grain prices were allowed to fall to target levels prescribed by federal law. The Agriculture Department says cash market prices for wheat and corn for 1974 production are expected to be higher than the target prices set by Congress in the Agriculture and Consumer Protection Act of 1973. But if record grain crops materialize this year as USDA experts predict, some buildup of grain reserves — and lower prices — can be expected. The new law puts into effect the target price concept of price guarantee for four years, beginning with 1974 crops and extending through 1977 harvests. Under the law, target prices are specified for the first two years, including $2.05 per bushel for wheat and $1.38 for corn. 'Hie law provides that, if cash market prices fall below the target prices during a portion of the marketing year, the government will make up the difference by making cash payments to farmers for their sluire of production needed to meet U.S. and export requirements. Currently, as they have been for some time, market prices for grain are much higher than the targets. The department last week, for example, said Feb. 15 prices for wheat at the farm averaged a record $5.52 per bushel and corn a high of $2,76 per bushel. Although the law set the targets specifically for the first two years of its four-year authority, it allowed the target prices to be adjusted for 1976 and 1977 according to farm costs. Bills have been introduced in Congress to make the escalator provision apply immediately so farmers will have the added guarantee of higher target supports in 1974 and 1975 as well. No USDA economist currently is so bold as to make predictions on how much farmers can expect over the coming year for grain on the cash market. Too much depends, they say, on the size of 1974 crops and how well exports hold up during 1974-75. Don Paarlberg, director of economies for USDA, says wheat historically is the one crop with a reputation for rebounding from scarcity to surplus with relative ease. Although in short supply now, Paarlberg says, "it's a distinct possibility" that by 1975 or 1976 the world will be in a surplus AAockup of space shuttle revealed DOWNEY, Calif. (AP)-Except for the bell-shaped rocket exhaust nozzles, a 122-foot-long wooden inockup of America's future space shuttle resembles a bloated airliner with stubby backswept wings. Rockwell International engineers assembled the first mockup of the blend of airplane and spacecraft as a preliminary step to producing the reusable shuttle. Rockwell and a host of subcontractors are undertaking development, estimated to cost $5.2 billion. First horizontal flight tests are scheduled for 1976, and the windowless craft is expected to begin hauling cargo into space in 1979. Meanwhile, the X24B aircraft, designed to test approach and landing techniques for the shuttle, made its first supersonic flight Tuesday at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The lifting body reached a speed of 740 miles per hour at an altitude of 60,800 feet before NASA test pilot John Manke shut down the rocket engines and glided the craft to a landing on Cuddleback Dry Lake, The shuttle, designed to be launched vertically like a rocket but land on wheels like an airplane, can be used over and over — perhaps 100 times — for • a variety of missions in earth's neighborhood. Inside the orbiter's fat body is a GO-by 15-foot cargo bay for hauling satellites, scientific gear or parts of space stations and larger spacecraft to be assembled in orbit. Because most of the shuttle can be used many times, NASA hopes the cost of a single mission can be r e duced to about $ 10 million, or about one-sixth the cost of the Apollo 9 orbital flight. **** Auction Directory FRIDAY, MARCH 8 - ELMER ZIU,, Smiles South of Fergus Falls. 10 a.m. Lewis Tysdal, Auctioneer (Farm Machinery) SATURDAY, MARCH 9 - ANTON THEUSCH ESTATE, 2M> miles West of Urbank.

Would wheat plummet to target price levels or below, meaning that huge government payments once again would burden U.S. taxpayers? "1 don't think it's going to target prices," Paarlberg told a reporter. "1 think the whole level of price (for all farm products) lias been escalated as the result of worldwide inflation. "And I think farmers would be in a hell of a price-cost squeeze long before the price dropped back to the target level," Paarlberg said.

Winter peril QUESTION: What event in French History is commemorated on July 14? * » . • ANSWER: July 14 in France is Bastille Day, a great national holiday corresponding to the American July 4th or Independence Day. At the outbreak of the French Revolution, July 14, 1789, the citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille, an old prison, where enemies of the regime were held in cells and cages under horrible conditions. The Bastille was the symbol of absolutism and tyranny. This siege of the Bastille marked the new spirit of the masses which spread through France and resulted in the establishment of a democratic form of government. The French celebrate Bastille Day with many festivities. It is a day of great national rejoicing with parades music and dancing in the streets. Since the overthrow of the monarchy in the French Revolution, it has been an important national holiday. However, during the German occupation of France in World War II the people stayed in their homes and did not celebrate Bastille Day. (Amy Johnson of Ft.
