Farmland Values and Rents Soar ¥ By BRIAN B.KING Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -The value of American farmland rose a record 25 per cent for the year that ended March 1, and rents on farmland also' rose at a record rate, a detailed study of farm real estate shows. The annual analysis of the March-to-March real estate picture by the Economic Research Service showed rent increases ranged from 13 per cent in Michigan to 50 per cent in North Dakota. the weeks ahead," said Hank McAvoy, a market specialist for the National Marine Fisheries Service in Gloucester. Most fish sold in the United States is frozen, and warehouses are full of it. Reserves are 49 per cent higher than a year ago, according to federal estimates. "There has been a very poor market in 1974, especially during Lent, which still is an important time for the fishing industry. It didn't materialize this year," McAvoy said. Frozen fillets of domestic cod sold for 80 cents a pound last April on the wholesale market. Now they go for 67 cents. Flounder fillets have declined from $1 a pound on March 6 to 83 cents. Medium sized white Gulf shrimp have dropped from $2 a pound on March 25 to $1.60 now. Rents nationwide tor pas- tureing cattle on private land averaged $4.95 per head per month on March 1. That rate of gain was even sharper in the western state, where rents rose more than 27 per cent to $5.82 a head a month. The slide in beef prices since last fall and the readjustments in the livestock industry as it tries to recover a profit situation are expected to bring those rents down. On the cropland side, Iowa's average rent of $57 an acre on land valued at $774 an acre topped all the states, the ERS said. All but two states reported rent hikes of at least 20 per cent, although land values increased less than 20 per cent in 17 states. Last year, when meat prices were hitting all time highs, annual consumption of fish in the United States rose to 12Mi pounds per person. It had been around 11 pounds for many years. This year, fish processors increased their imports from foreign suppliers to meet expected demand. It never materialized because of the squeeze on the consumer dollar and the availability of some cheaper poultry and meat cuts, McAvoy said. Warehouse holdings of frozen fish were 409.6 million tons on June 30, Marine Fisheries said. A year ago, they were 273.3 million. Kevin Allen, another federal market specialist, said fish prices have risen steadily since 1969. "For seafood in general, this is the first break since then," he said. First Black for Fire Dept. COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP)—The first black firemen in the 106-year history of Council Bluffs will begin work here in about two weeks. Robert Hubbard of Omaha has passed all necessary tests and only final results of a medical examination are needed. Preliminary reports have been satisfactory. City Personnel Director Melvin BeVirt said the city is attempting to bring city job vacancies to the attention of minorities. However, he said few blacks ever apply for fire or police jobs, adding that only one black has applied in the last 15 years. That was for a fireman's job and the applicant failed one of the tests. BeVirt said minorities make up about 3 per cent of Council Bluffs' population and a majority of those are Mexican- Americans. Hubbard is looking forward to the job. ISU Graduate Course at W.L.

THAT MUST VE BEEN SOME TRIP, ALLEY/ HOW'D YOU £6T SO BANGED-UPT QUESTION: Is a.dog color blind? * * * ANSWER: Research conducted on the optic system of the dog indicates that the dog is color blind, or nearly so If there is any sensitivity to color, it is in the change of tone from pale to dark, rather than the colors themselves. The sight of dogs seems to be weaker than humans. They are poor at distinguishing immobile objects a considerable distance from them. When an object begins to move, then the dbg notices it instantly. It is thought that dogs see shapes instinctly and do not perceive detail. At night dogs see much better than humans, pogs have a habit of staring when they are attempting to see some Nearsightedness is common in dogs. Bulldogs, Pugs and other dogs with protruding eyes are usually more myopic than other breeds. A dog's sense of smell and its hearing supplement its vision.
