PAGE TWO BLYTHEVII.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ; XOVEMBEH 1, Agri Group Damage in Bjr GORI>ON BROWN *r 6p«t»l Washington Sfrvlc. ^WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. </J>j — Agriculture Department representative* art checking boll weevil damAge In the cotton belt to de- fermlne "disaster areas." '••Early reports, a department spokesman said, indicate that dam- »ge has been heavy In about the ume area where the Insects cut the crop last year. ; When K county Is designated * disaster area. Its farmers are entitled to seek loan. 1 ; from the Farmers Home Administration. The low- interest loan* are intended to finance the farmer for planting of another crop. Last year fill or parks of nine states were designated disaster areas as a result of damage to the cotton crop from boll weevils and floods. The states were North Cnro- Hn». South Carolina. Georgia. Tennessee. Alabama. Mississippi. Ar- Checks Boll Weevil South s Cotton Belt kansas, Louisiana and Missouri, Tills year, the department spokesman told » reporter, much the same area is involved. Damage possibly may not have been as heavy in Georgia and Mississippi as last year, he said, but Oklahoma find Texas, on tlie oilier hand, have more damage. Surveys now being made In the field will determine which counties are to be included In the disaster area classification. It may be (our weeks before the job Is complete, the spokesman said. Last year 20,319 disaster loans totaling »19,117.503 were marie to cotton farmers In the nine states. liOins carry three per cent Interest »nd generally are for the one crop year, although they may run longer. The government requires security, usually the crop to be harvested. This year, when many of the same farmers will need new loans, the spokesman said, some additional security likely will rx 1 required. \ Since the loans are designed to carry the farmer through a bad year and enable him to harvest an- otlier crop, the money can not be used for paying off other Indebtedness, the spokesman said. There was some discussion of this requirement last year, the spokesman said, but the government held to the policy. Creditors of the farmers, he «a!rt, in some case.s wanted Ihe borrowers to use the loan to pay them back. The number of cot Ion disaster loans made last year Included: SUIe Tcnn. Ala. . Miss. Ark.

It seems there's a labor shortage developing. and younger workers are going into the armed forces or defense production Jobs. Companies who thought a man was washed up at 60—some said he was unhlrable after 40—are suddenly .discovering that the oldster has virtues of skill, experience and • executive talent. "Don't apologlae for growing old -— many persons are denied this privilege," the Controllers Institute today reminds Its members who are looking for a job once more. Older Men Hired The 40-Plus Club of Connecticut, •nga^ed In finding its members new Jobs, says that since the Korean War many companies are turning to hiring older men. since they fear Ic*s of younger key per- •onnel'to. the armed forces or to defense jobs. A government arsenal at Frankford,.Pa., which had a 62 age limit for machinists, tool, die and gauge makers/has raised it to 70. The Office of Defense Manpower •ays a labor shortage Is developing •nd the Labor Department to planning a training program for industrial plants lo get the skill needed for arms production. The older age brackets, however, offer a large reservoir of already trained ability. The Census Bureau reports that 13.3 per cent of the men and 13 per cent of the women tn the country are over 55. There are 11.5, million persons over 65 — one out of every 13 In the country— • nd both-the number and the percentage -te growing. There may be 30 million'In that age,gfoupVby I WO. Pumper Crop -Cooilnc AWwf A bumper crop of'the very young la coming along. But the age groups on which the.military draw, and to which Industry normally looks for replacements—the 15 to 35 range- have '.been growing very little. If at all. In fact, there are two million less In the 15 to 1« group than 10 yean ago (that was the depression's •hort crop of babies). For the oldster wanting to get back Into harness, the Controllers Institute has some good advice. It Is aimed only at controllers, accountant* and. company treasurers, but many others could use Its pointers on how lo land a Job. The Institute says mcdlum-slKd corporations offer the best prospects, because large corporations are usually well-staffed and don't ]ooic to the outside for top-level employes. Other suggestions: Address your letter to top executives only. Follow-up letters are Import M the application. Don't stay too long at interviews. Don't fall to send a thank-you letter after an interview, no matter how It turns out—the employer may not hire von but because of a good Impression, he may recommend you to someone else.

The Secretary believes the government must support prices of meat animals if production Is 11 be ample to avoid skyrocketing price* and possibly price controls and rationing. The department has authority to support pi-Ices, but in Brannan's view It rtoes not have an effective method of carrying out supports. Aides who cannot be named, 'said Brannan, Ls likely to lay the whole problem before House and Senate agriculture committees soon after Con grew retunu from fa eltetlon recess. Fx;onomist« wedict 19S1 production of meat will iverig* only 143 pounds for eich con»umer If nothing is done by th« government fco encourage greater output. Th« demand for meat, on the oth*r hand, is exacted by some to average tt least 155 pounls. In .seeking congressional advice, Brannan will merely lay the situation before the lawmakers without making specific recommendation^ aides told a reporter. He haa tltf. he does not wish to use the prospective demand for more meat aj an argument for hU controversial farm plan.
