(idesb^ra JU Tuesday, July 3L M3 Farm Bill Deadlock Over Food Stamps for Strikers MfEmNAttD BRENNER ' •' WfUMlNGTON (UPI) - Sen- ate-ttouse conferees, facing a . 0e__T<fek with (tlie administra- Ueri. 6W (arm support sections of ' anlWiibuS farm ami food bill, 'mei^tetay in a fresh effort to ..dissolve their own internal daadlock oft another Issue — food Stamps for strikers. The" House, in passing its verj&w of the massive bill, had .,votej i; )by a narrow margin to ban distribution of food strfhps to any strikers who had not been eligible for this aid before walking off their jobs. The Senate did not approve the ban in its Mil, ai*l Senate conferees have resisted House attempts to write it into the compromise draft being prepared by the confere^fice. House members Monday of* fered a watered-down version under whidi the ban would stand, but state agencies would be allowed to waive it on a case-by-case basis if they determined any family affected woiikt not be able to get an adequate diet. Senators rejected the offer, and the issue may be sent back to the House for fresh instructions unless an agreement can be reached today. The House earlier had approved the striker ban on three successive votes, beginning with a 213-203 margin and ending with a final 206-20? haidine decision. Even if the striker issue is compromised, however, some current stands will have to be altered before the farm bill conferees can claim agreement with the administration on major crop support provisions of the bill. Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Bote said Monday he would recommend a veto of the measure unless: —A conference agreement to raise minimum dairy supports to 80 per'cent of parity (the current minimum is 75 per cent) for four years is scaled back to provide only a one-year increase. Conferees moved part way Monday by paring down the dairy hike to cover only two years, 1974-75. -A conference agreement allowing support targets for grains and cotton to rise in 1070 and 107? is shrunk to allow "escalation" of the targets only in one year, 1070. The conferees made no change in their tentative two-year escalation provision, and one Democratic leader predicted there would be no further retreat by the farm bloc on this key point. Up' to China Okay for $ LUBBOCK, Tex. (UPI) West Texas farmers are selling cotton to China, and it has nothing to do with politics. It concerns hard cash. "As long as we sell the cotton and don't give it away, I'm for dealing with anyone," said Dean Nichols, who farms 310 acres of irrigated cotton 15 miles northeast of Lubbock. "It's time we move stronger into world markets." Nichols, 35, is a member of the Plains Cotton Cooperative Association (POCA), which sold 400,000 (bales of cotton to China. The last load is on its way. "When we plant, we never stop to worry about where the crop this fall. And he's interested in how much of the 1973 and 1974 crop will be sold abroad. Nichols has farmed at his present location four years. But he is no newcomer to the business. He grew up on a farm helping his dad and has been farming on his own in west Texas for 17 years. He admits that the first thing one thinks of when selling cotton or anything to China is the old Communist political bloc—and what public opinion will be. "But we've got to overcome that feeling. We need things from other countries, including China and other political foes of America, and we can't stop trade just because we differ in political thinking." "We've got to think of trade as helping to make world peace," he said. "We must put aside political differences to survive." In Knox County Social Security Benefits Hh $1.27 Million During Month Knox Couty residents were receiving $1,270,000 in Social Security benefits a month at the end of 1972, according to Bill D. Tipsword, manager of the Social Security office in Galesburg. About one of every four persons receiving benefits in Knox County-or 1,544 people—is under age 60, TipswoTth reported. Almost 725 are under 10. They, receive benefits, because a working mother or father has died or is getting Social Security disability or retirement benefits, Tipsword said 6,104 Social Security recipients in Knox County are retired workers and their dependents. Another 1,077 receiving benefits are disabled workers or their dependents. A total of 101 beneficiaries were between 18 and 22 years of age. Most are getting Student's benefits under a provision in Social Security law permitting continuation of a child's benefits beyond his 18th birthday and up to age 22 if the person is attending school full-time, Tipsword explained. Canadians Eye Profit, Buy V. S. Cattle DES MOINES, Iowa (UPI) Canadian meat processors have begun buying Midwest cattle to be resold later in the United States at substantial profit.

"We're more interested in how much money we will make. We wonder if we will meet expenses for the year. Will the market hold or is the bottom going to drop out?

He said reports from the two yards indicated 10 to 12 loads of cattle went to Canadians at Sioux City, with another six to eight loads purchased by Canadians at Omaha. Freese said the cattle will be shipped to Canadian plants where they will be slaughtered and processed and then resold in the United States. He explained that meat imports Insect Is Threat To Cotton Crop MOULTON, Ala. (UPI) Heavy damage to the Alabama cotton crop is being blamed on the invasion of a pest described as "worse than the (boll) weevil." Sam McLendon, county extension chairman for Lawrence County, v said Monday the tarnished plant bug "is in every one of the 33,000 acres planted in the county. "Damage is heavy," McLendon said. "This thing's worse than the weevil." McLendon said quick control of the pest would still allow enough time for the cotton to develop new squares. are not controlled by the retail price ceiling on American beef, allowing the Canadian packers tb charge higher prices when they resell the processed meat in the States. Freese said he and association vice president Larry Kallem of Kelly, Iowa have received reports that Canadian- processed beef sold for 97 1 /. cents per pound in New York City last Friday. This is 24 per cent per pound more than the' 72 cents the domestic meat packer could ask under the price freeze, he explained. Retailers are allowed to pass the higher cost of imported beef onto consumers under Internal Revenue Service regulations, the association officials noted. Freese said Canadian packers are able to outbid American cattle buyers at livestock terminals because they can resell the beef at a much higher price. NOW YOU CAN FIND RELIABLE A.D.
