Bodcaw. 12-6-lmc WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's energy crisis struck home at the start of 1977 as Americans shivered through the coldest winter on record. But at year's end, the country stiil lacked an answer to chronic energy shortages and a growing dependence on foreign oil. As record snowfalls piled up in some cities last winter and many rivers froze, the demand for home heating siphoned off the short supply of natural gas from industries, businesses and schools — forcing thousands to close and idling about 1.2 million workers. When President Jimmy Carter took office Jan. 20, he promptly urged the American people to turn down their thermostats and made energy a top priority. In April, he presented to Con- gress a comprehensive "National Energy Plan." His strategy was to promote energy conservation and encixira»',e a shift from oil and natural cas to coal and nuclear power. Carter asked for. and k;ot, a new Department of Energy, officially opened on Oct. 1 with James H. Schlesingor, once head of the nation's defense and nuclear proijrams, as its first secretary. Carter previewed his energy plan on April 18. with warnings of a future world fuel crisis. But by then, snowbound romls and frozen waterways had thawed and natural gas demand had dropped. The return of energy comfort, however, only masked the continuing problem, Carter administration officials warned. Natural gas production, dwindling since 1973, shrank an,''ho; •> (--p-ont in '.9?'.'

Imports of foreign oil continued to increase •- at H rate of about W percent in 1977. Refotv the Arab oil embargo of 1<>73, the nation depended on foreign oil for about H7 percent of its to Ml needs, but in VJ71 that dependency had trached 48 percent. And at prices imposed by the world oil cartel, those petroleum imports cost the United States an estimated $45 billion in 1977, about 2 percent of the Gross National Product. On the other hand, U.S. oil companies spent, more and drilled more. Domestic oil production, in decline since 1970, leveled off ,c. nhnu 8.2 million barrels a day in 1?77 with the June ?0 opening of the controversial Alaska oil pipeline. On July 8, the pipeline was disabled by :in explosion, later Named on human error, which killed one worker and destroyed a pump station. It re- sinned operation July 20. but at a reduced flow rate. That meant excess Alaska oil had to be shipped through the Panama fannl to oil ports on the Gulf of Mexico while the government processed a belated proposal by Standard Oil of Ohio for a pipeline front California to Texas. Another problem with the Alaskan oil was distribution. The U.S. West Coast, destination of the oil, did not need it all and the Carter administration barred Alaskan oil exports to Japan on July 10. oved to authorize a pipeline for Alaska natural £as, parallel to the oQ pipeline. The United States and Canada agreed on its southbound route along the Alcan Highway. Meanwhile, on July 21, Schleslnper turned n valve In Unusiana sending the first shipment of crude oil, a tanker load from Saudi Arabia, Into an underground strategic petroleum reserve destined to hold 500 million barrels, as Insurance against an Interruption of imports.

Today's farms: fewer but much larger By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States will begin the New Year with ail estimated 2.68 million farms, 26,000 fewer than last Jan. 1 and about the number that existed more than a century ago, according to the Agriculture Department. Hut today's farms are much larger, an average of 400 acres each, against about 150 acres in 1870. Last Jan. 1, the average farm size, was 397 acres, the de- partment Mid Thursday in an annual report. Even so, the amount of land actually in farms continues to shrink because of urban Result: Lois was fired. Undaunted, she took the matter to court. Pointing out that she had tenure, she argued that her conduct was not serious enough to justify dismissal. But the court decided she was guilty of insubordination and must go. In most communities, insubordination by a teacher is considered grounds for discharge. One judge gave this reason: "Lessons are learned from example as well as from precept. The example of a teacher who is continually insubordinate may teach children lessons they should not learn. "Such conduct may unfit a teacher for service even though her other qualities may be sufficient. 'Book learning' is only a phase of the lessons a child should leam." In another school, teachers were allowed to use a paddle on troublesome students. But one teacher preferred to rough them up himself. This too led to his dismissal, and a court ruled later that he had no kick coming. The court said it was up to school authorities, not individual teachers, to decide how students could be disciplined. On the other hand, a teacher cannot be tagged as insubordinate for invoking basic constitutional rights. In another case, an English teacher defied the principal's order to stop assigning a certain novel—bawdy but literate—in her classroom. This defiance, a court held afterward, was not insubordination but just the lawful exercise of the teacher's freedom of speech.

Nonetheless, Jones went on to become one of the NFL's leading quarterbacks while wearing the jersey of the Baltimore Colts. Speaking of Agriculture Calvin J.Cald well County Extension Agent FERTILIZER SUPPLIES U.S. farmers can anticipate steady to lower fertilizer prices through next spring in the face of ample supplies and possibly weaker demand, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture officials. Domestic use will total near to below the record level for the July 1976-June 1977 fertilizer year due to relatively low farm commodity prices and the set- aside programs. Supplies will be more than adequate to meet the needs of U.S, farmers in 1977-78 if current production levels hold. Arkansas farmers should find adequate fertilizer supplies in the coming year. Farmers who order early should be able to get the kinds of fertilizer they want and receive a price advantage. U.S. fertilizer inventories are abundant this fall, with nitrogen inventories well above year-earlier levels. Anhydrous ammonia capacity increased sharply during 1977, and phosphoric acid and potash capacity remains close to a year ago. Of the primary nutrients nitrogen use was up about 2 percent to 10.6 million tons: phosphate use increased 8 percent to 5.6 million tons; and potash use was up 12 percent to 5.8 million tons. Fertilizer use by regions reflected drought conditions in the Mountain States, generally favorable crop price prospects at planting time in the Southeast and Appalachian regions and increased cotton acreage in the Southern Plains. Application rates of the three primary nutrients on acreage harvested In 1&77 were up for com and wheat, but were mixed for cotton and soybeans. The percent of acres fertilized in 1977 was about (he same as a year earlier for corn, down for wheat and up for cotton and soybeans. In 1977-78, fertilizer application rates are expected to increase, but u:cr<!(£ed ap- plication rates may not offset the reduction caused by puttin gland in set-aside programs. U.S. anhydrous ammonia production capacity rose 16 percent in 1977 to 22.7 million tons. Total phosphoric acid production capacity at 9.3 million tons Is expected to remain about the same for the 1977-78 fertilizer year. Potash production capacity remained unchanged during 1977. U.S. production capacity Lv currently about 3.0 million tons, while North American capacity is about 11.7 million tons. U.S. Demand for potash continues to exceed domestic production, and the United States remains a net importer of potash from Canada. sprawl, highways, recreational facilities and other non-farm uses which gobble up the countryside. The department said that aa of Jan. 1,1978, there will be an estimated 1,072,341,000 acres in U.S. farms. That represents a decline of almost 2.7 million acres — one quarter of 1 percent — from 1,075,011,000 acres In farms last Jan. 1. Although department exports say that there la little danger that the United States will run out of farmland, there la serious concern that city sprawl and other encroachment threatens the existence of sub- stanial amounts of prime land, the most productive acres needed to grow crops. The decline In the number of farms has been going on generally since the mid 1990s. Much of the shrink in the amount of land actually in farms has oc- cured since 1950. In 1870 when there were about as many farms aa there are today, only 408 million acres were Involved in them. But by 1910, according to de~ , partment, records, the number of farms had grown to nearly 6.4 million. The land they covered also grew to 879 million acres In the 40 years after 1870. During and following World War I, farm numbers held fairly steady. By 1920, there were 956 million acres In more than 6.4 million farms. The mid 1920s brought some decline In farm numbers and in the land used by farmers. But by 1935, as the nation's worst economic depression still gripped the country, farm numbers rose to a record peak of 6.8 million and involved nearly 1.06 billion acres. After 1935, farms continued to grow larger and their numbers gradually declined. In 1940, there were 6.1 million farms Ind volving more than 1.06 billion acres — slightly less than the land used today. The years following World War n saw another era of expansion in farm size as thousands of rural families left the countryside for cities and towns. By 1950, the number of farms dropped to 5.4 million, and the amount of land hi them had increased to about 1.16 billion acres. Since then, however, the land In farms has generally declined but not as rapidly as the number of farms. In 1984, there were still more than 1.1 billion acres in farms but the nation's farm count was down to about 3.2 million. The report Thursday showed that the number of farms declined since last Jan. 1 in 23 states and held steady in the remainder. Texas continues to lead with 197,000 farms, down from 199,000 last Jan. 1. Other leaders in numbers of farms included: Missouri 133,000 farms unchanged from last Jan. 1; Iowa 128,000 and 131,000; Illinois 117,000 and 118,000; Kentucky 117,000 and 118,000; North Carolina 115,000 and 117,000; and Minnesota 114,000 and 116,000. WASHINGTON (AP) Prices of farm commodities overall probably will end the year higher than they were at the end of 1976, barring an unexpected decline this month. The Agriculture Department's index of prices farmers ga for commodities stood at 180 percent of its 1967 base on Nov. 15. Religious briefs NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Of- flclals of two Southern Baptist seminaries were surprised by news reports that they were being cut off from federal funds because of sex discrimination. The schools don't get federal funds. "We do not now, nor have we in the past received federal government or tax monies," sftid the Rev. Dr. Landrum LeveD, president of New Orleans Baptist Seminary in response to the announcement from the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Reacting to a similar report, the Rev. Dr. W. Randall Lolley, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wlnston-Salem, N.C., said, "It's pusxling to me for HEW to say that our funds have been withdrawn when we receive no monies whatsoever from them or any other federal agency." He added there was no kind of discrimination at the school on sex or any other basis. At the New Orleans seminary, 30 per cent of the students art women. The rhubarb apparently occurred because the schools had not filled in government forms promising not to discriminate. They said they didn't do so since they're church auxiliaries accepting no tax monies, and not subject to federal agency regulations. NEW YORK (AP) - A National Council of Churches offl- cial.thc Rev.
