The expected rate of $162 a month for a four-member family will be up 512 a month or eight per cent from the rate for the second half of 1974, which was set last July 1. In a related development, the department announced Monday that a new federal regulation to be adopted April 9 will require states to take effective oul- reach action" for getting more eligible people enrolled in the food stamp program. The new rule will require for example, each state to have a full-lime food stamp outreach coordinator. A spokesman for the department's Food and Nutrition Service said only about half of the states have coordinators now. Under existing law the federal government will pay half the cost ot state outreach operations. Officials said all stales must have plans submitted to the department by July 1 and must have them in operation by Aug. 1. Food stamp enrollments and costs have soared, from 15.3 million persons in February 1974 to 18.5 million last February. Total federal costs are estimated at about $5 billion for the fiscal year to end July 3D and at $6 billion or more in 1975-76. that Roswell ter." will be the cen- j Snydcr officials said they act-hrntly bidding cd in fear of reprisal from ihe'than 52.
