A year aero, out of the \vhile House Conference on Food. Nutrition, and Health came urgent demands and pious p 1 e d ges about feeding America's hungry and poor.

Then- an; eighi Findley offers new farm plan By MARY SWANTON Telegraph's Mcdill Service WASHINGTON — The USDA is reviewing a proposal to permit farmers in areas hit by corn blight to substitute soybeans for corn for purposes of maintaining their historical feed grain base, but. it will not make a decision on the plan until late January. Carroll G. Brunlhaver, Associate Administrator of Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, told the Telegraph that no decision will be made until the January Planning Intentions Report is available Jan. 25. "We want lo see how much corn acreage and how much bean acreage farmers indicate wil Ibe planted in 1971 before we make a decision on the substitution question," Brunthaver said. The proposal was made by Rep. Paul Findley (R-I11.) in a meeting with Brunthaver and Assistant Agriculture Secretary Clarence D. Palmby. Findley said the substitution of soybeans would aid many producers in the corn blight area who face a serious problem as a result of the short supply of blight resistant seed now available. Farmers would lose their entitlement as cooperators in the feed grain program if no corn is planted, but seed supplies are available only in the Texas sterile variety which is highly susceptible to blight. Findley said his proposal would not endanger the soybean market. "The market output for soybeans is exceptionally god for 11)71, so much so some observers see the possibility of substantial shortage of supplies," he said. "I make the request with full awareness that the privilege of indiscriminate substitution can bring pressure on soybean supplies and therefore pirices. I hold to the view that substitution should be approved only sparingly, under circumstances of genuine hardship, and only when it will not threaten soybean prices." Findley recommended that substitution be allowed only in counties where the USDA has already certified Hie existence of emergency conditions as a result of the southern corn leaf blight. Ten counties in the 2()th District have been so designated. He also limited the substitution to the 1971 season, because supplies of blight- resistant seed are expected to be available by 1972. Maddux bids friends goodbye ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) — Gov. Lester Maddox, who steps down to the post of lieutenant governor on Jan. 12, shook hands with a crowd of well-wishers he estimated at 10,000 to 15,000 at his final open house in the governor's mansion Sunday. State patrolmen estimated the handshakers numbered "in excess of 5,000.' Artificial Teeth Never Felt So Natural Before Now...

One daycare c"ntcr, with one 'mother." was licensed for six children, but this woman was caring for 10 chikh'en, iricliitlmt: ei.'-;hl infants tied to i. r ibs. This is why the White House conference stressed the need for a "network of voluntary supplementary child care, flexible enon.uh to t)e part, of family life, able to promote the lull development of our c h i I r! r e n. and readily available to all families with children " Like most of the other pressing social needs in I his country, day care will cost money. Authorities estimate that the cost for a full day of cood care runs about S2.0(lO per child annually, with the cost for the country expected lo I)': $6 billion a year by IflSO.

You say thai since everyone loves children, one of those hills ought to hree/e through Congress'.' Not hardly. More lawmakers than you can imagine will hold that, when a woman takes a job, what happens to her children is her worry and not that ol the .government. Thai is the sort of philosophy which has made iis a society that sees infl morr: teachers as inflationary. b:it 100 more FBI agents as a necessity. It is the philosophy which enables loo many Omgiv-s- iiien to conclude thai building reformatories and penitentiaries is quite the business of ';ovcrumonl, but building nurseries ami day-care centers is someone's private concern. <;i;Ki:NSI',OUO.
