WASHINGTON (AP) — "Gone With the Wind" was chosen the greatest American film ever produced, edging out "Casablanca" and "Citizen Kane." Lillian Gish and Fay Wray were there, and so were Elizabeth Taylor Warner amd Ethel Kennedy. Others included James Stewart, Henry Fonda, and Charlton Heston and Henry Kissinger. The occasion Thursday night was the American Film Institute's 10th anniversary gala benefit at the Kennedy Center. Earlier at a White House reception President Carter paid tribute to films as "a true people's art form." George Stevens, director of API, announced the selection of the best film. He said the 1939 classic about the Civil War was the greatest among many equally great films. The AFI, which was created by the National Council of the Arts in 1967 "to preserve the heritage and develop the art" of film and television, has catalogued nearly 14,000 films in its archives, grants funds to independent film makers, distributes a film journal. It also has set up a center for film studies in Los Angeles. At the While House reception, congressmen, cabinet officers and Amy Carter mingled with hundreds of directors, producers, film company executives and movie stars as well as other celebrities. (Jean Christensen, of Capitol Hill News Service has been talking to Congressman and officials in Washington about the threatened farm strike set for Dec. 14. This is the first of three articles presenting the view of the strike from Washington.) By Jean Christensen WASHINGTON, D.C. — If activist farmers demanding parity are depending on Congress to ward off the threatened December farm strike, then a strike is inevitable. Interviews with Kansas Congressmen, a congressional aide and a Department of Agriculture official recently showed that while sympathetic, official Washington will not do anything to prevent the strike. But if the strike has widespread support and is successful, then some action could be taken. None of the Kansans would presume to advise farmers to strike or not to strike — that is a personal decision, they said — but they would understand it either way. Rep. Joe Skubitz, R- Pittsburg, wrote in answer to questions about the strike, "A drowning man will grab at any straw in order to survive. The planned strike is the farmer's straw — it may be the last straw." Farmers calling themselves American Agriculture, have threatened to strike Dec. 14 if Congress does not enact into law their demand for a guarantee of prices at 100 percent of parity. No one seems to know how many farmers will strike, how many states are involved or what kinds of farmers will participate. Parity is a level calculated on the basis of prices and the cost of living for a period when farmers were doing well early in this century. For wheat, parity is based on the years 1910 to 1914. Adjusted for current conditions, wheat would sell for $5.03 a bushel. On aug. 15, wheat nationwide was selling at $2.01, 40 percent parity, accouding to American Agriculture literature. IT'S HIGH TIME WE TOOK LIFE A LITTLE SLOWER. On the highways, slower speeds save lives, save energy. For example, traffic deaths were down by 9400 in 1975, as compared to 1973, when speed limits were higher than 55. And we could save eight and a half million gallons of gasoline a day if everybody slowed down. The point is, the 55 mph speed limit isn't something to take or leave lightly. It's vitally important. To all of us. SPEED! LIMIT 55 IT'S NOT JUST A GOOD IDEA. ITS THE LAW A public service of this newspaper, The U.S. Department of Transportation and The Advertising Council. Parity for corn is $3.45 a bushel, compared to $1.65 on Aug. 15 — 48 percent of parity. Sorghum was also selling at 48 percent. Other products, such as barley, soybeans and milk were selling at between 50 and 78 percent of parity. American Agriculture threatens that farmers will not sell or produce any farm products or buy any non essential products if their demands are not met. Resorting to strike tactics, which farmers don'tusually believe in, is a sign of their desperation and the ecomomic disaster they face. If the strike is successful and enough farmers agree to quit producing and selling until prices reach parity, prices will have to rise, the aide said. Either because of supply and demand, or because Congress will be forced to increase them. The Secretary of Agriculture has the authority to raise low rates but only if increasing them will not reduce exports or increase domestic stocks — which limits his authority. The target prices are set by law and increase only with increases in cost of production. The congressmen and other officials interviewed suggested several points that should be considered by Liberal Man Found Dead GUYMON, Okla. (AP) Sherman Dee Hinz, 52, of Liberal, Kan., was found dead Thursday in an oil field after he apparently was run over and killed by his own servicing truck, a spokesman for the Texas County Sheriff's office said. Hinz' body was found after his family reported he had failed to come home Wednesday night. LIVE EVERY NITE GRAIN BIN "GENESIS" 9:00 to 1:00 farmers. First, they questioned whether parity is a valid measure of ideal crop prices. Also, they wonder whether farmers want the government to guarantee them a profit, as would be the case if support prices were raised to parity or if the government found some other way to guarantee parity prices. They fear that a guarantee of parity would increase land prices and hurt the small family farmer. Congressmen, and the USDA wonder what effect a strike would have on the food supply and farmers themselves. They also wonder what farmers, who are in a slack season anyway, will stop doing to participate 'in a strike. Cattle and fruit and vegetable producers and others who are actively putting their products on the market in December will have to stop for the strike to be a cuccess.
