Farmland runs about fa,ooo .an acre. Sirloin steak costs $2 a pound. Lettuce is one of the cheaper items on a housewife'* .. grocery list - about 21 cents per head, The national language of the country is AM English. The country is the Netherlands, home of a young foreign exchange student named Cor- 1 lie Peterse, currently residing at. the home of Mrs. Jennv , Anderson and her three daughters, Teresa, Patsy and Rhonda of Avon. The 22-year-old visitor, is 'part Of a program sponsored -by,the KPJ (Catholic Rural i Youth),.an association in the [. Netherlands similar to Ameri- i J cin 4-H clubs. The program r »the same one that saw Te- 1 resa Anderson go to the Netherlands last year with the 4-H Caravan, conducted annually by the National 4-H Club Foundation. Corrie arrived in the United States June 19 and stayed with a family in Carrollton for three weeks before coming to Avon July 15. Her home is Werkhoven in the Netherlands, a small ,town of 2,500 about 81 miles from Amsterdam in the central part of the country. The purpose of the program Is to learn about life in other countries, but so far, Carrie's idea of the United States has remained the same. "THE UNITED States is a very modern country. Before I came I had read so many books about the U.S. that it is exactly what I thought it would be. It is about the same here as it is in my country." But that doesn't mean that she hasn't had some surprises. "The farms are a lot bigger here than to my home. But I think the incomes for the farmers are the same even though the sizes of the farms ,, differ so much. I come from a dairy farm and the meth- cds we use are the exact same as the ones used in the United States." In addition to dairy cattle, the Peterses grow apples, pears and cherries and they raise hogs. "The Andersons took me to the stockyards in Peoria at the beginning of the week. They are really big. In my home we only have market oh , 'Saturdays while the United The Almanac By United; Press International • Today is Wednesday, July 25 the 206th day of 1973 with 159 to follow.

American artist Maxfield Parrish was born July 25, 1870. On this day in history: In 1866, Ulysses S. Grant became the first American officer to reach the rank of general in the U.S. Army. In 1943, King Victor Emman uel of Italy replaced Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini who was executed by a squad of partisans in 1945. In 1952, Puerto Rico became a self-governing U.S. common wealth.

The .conversation turned to television — 1 the constant drone of American TV as opposed to the intermittent broadcasting done in the Netherlands — and of course, Watergate. "WE HEAR a lot more about Watergate in the Netherlands than you do here. The people here treat it more of a joke than anything. I just can't see how it's possible in the United States." Corrie also told of the excitement she experienced when wtehing the moon land**. "We watched (he Afnencn space. program as- it went along on television. 1 just can't believe how televi* sion on the moon is possibte." Corrie was also impressed by the American school system; "Your school system Is better than ours. In the Unit' ed States you can make up your mind titter high school about What you want to do the rest; of your life. "In the Netherlands you go to grade school for six years and then you go to. either the gymnasium (a type of school) and on toa university to become a doctor or lawyer or professor, or else you go to secondary'school and the H&vo to go into the trades.". Like most people staying In a sfj-ahge^Country, Corrie also evaluated'the food she ate. Those foorJs receiving a superior rating were root beer, sweet' corn, hamburgers at McDonald's and pizzas. The only food that definitely scored "0" on the "Peterse scale" was sweet potatoes. Corrie will stay with the Andersons at 102 Circle Drive in Avon until Aug. 4 when she and other members of the KPJ program go to Washington, D.C., for a tour before returning to The Netherlands. This week Corrie is a guest at the State Junior Leadership Conference of the 4-H Club at Monticello. osco STORE HOURS f AM to t PRtf MOB. tfutt Fri. f AM to 5:30 PM Sat. Closed Sua* day.
