If these programs are to be continued they will need to be funded by the slate from federal turnback funds or from slate tax sources. It has been obvious since the inception of the anti - poverty agency that it was capable of and susceptible to numerous boon-doggies. However, in some local anti-poverty organizations, where the relationship between local government officials and agency personnel has been cooperative, some real accomplishments can be said to have been made. I N WASHINGTON .Counly, the most popular of the anli- poverty programs administered by the local Economic Oppor tunity Agency has been the Head Start-Home Start program of day care for children of tvorking mothers. In addition local officials estinuite that the family planning program, which provides low income families wih contraceptive information and methods, has prevented a number of unwanted preg nancies since its inception. The Slate OKO has begun research into the causes o sickle cell anemia, a 'disease apparently prevalent among low-income blacks.^ Of a purely ecosomic nature s o m e Washington' County successes have ·''· been thi establishment by the EOA o a cannery at Winslow an various stores where Ozark na tive crafts are sold.

A German who has real understanding and affection for the United States says a lot of IHEIBH« Facts On Futures By WYLIE PARKER And LAVERN HOL1FIELD A.G. EDWARDS AND SONS, INC. The advent of the wheat harvest, the first USDA crop report n several months, and a weakening export bid at the Gulf all helped to carry wheat prices ower. Rains in the Texas area did delay harvest slightly but proved beneficial to the northern plains. . Spring wheat planting is making good progress. The private estimate of 1.B5 billion bushels on the win- :er wheat crop set a bearish ' ane. When the actual figures were released, they were still construed as bearish, even though much lower than like private estimate. Measurements of pubic altitude indicate an overwhelmingly be a r i s h attitude which must make one suspicious. A glance at charts of past years indicates that being short Chicago wheat in the latter half of May is not profitable in most years. Consequently, our bias must shift to the long side, at least on a short term basis. We would be looking for weakness on which to make purchases. CORN FUTURES have been led by the mercantile markets in recent weeks and this has meant ' a downward course. The bearishness in the wheat pit did not hurt matters Export business has been steady but country selling over the weekend did put pressure on cash markets. Weather has generally been favorable for planting but rain in the northern Corn B e l t has kept "big new crop" slwrts a little nervous. There is talk or a significant outmovement of corn from Chicago, but so far liltle has materialized in this regard. We would treat corn as a trading affair. The soybean complex con tinned under pressure with meal being the only strong point. Cash meal problems have b e e n alleviated somewhat although Brazil continues to offer cheap meal into the world market. Foreign buying was evident in the futures market. A record high price for sun- flowerseed oil in Europe gave some support to soybean oil spirits. THIS STRENGTH abroad was construed as indicative ol tightness and expectations thai the Soviet Union would not sell any major quantities in the near future, although minor amounts have been sold from .ime to time. Some country selling of soybeans was evident but not to the degree of corn ·ales. The farmer invenlories of soybeans are matcher, against processor needs to satisfy product demand, pri marily oil. This is the balance of power for the second half of the crop year. In the short run, it woulr seem that the farmer is wea ker, but the situation conic change by summer because of seasonal improvements in oil as well as the unusual circum stances this year in foreign needs for oil. PL ·180 will play an important role in this regard. How the needs of Asiar countries will be met is stir an open question. It' is possible that unusua steps could be taken in E humanitarian gesture over and above normal aid channels Either way, we believe tha' soybean oil 1 still has consider able upside potential but tha seasonal factors favor waiting :o make purchases. Meat can be traded on a short term tech nical basis, at this time to become involved in long term long positions. ' TECHNICAL rally ha into the livestock mar kets. Dressed beef prices hav been "a little ~b"e"t t eY,' "as have some pork cuts. The fun damental situation in cattle hogs, and bellies has no changed and is still bearish fo the · intermediate term. Cattl weights continue to be heav. and the problems of the feedin; industry are receiving more publicity. Dry weather in the southern ilains this summer could see ie old fascination is gone. "We ave proved to ourselves that e can do bad things every bit s unsuccessfully as you do -- xk at Frankfurt -- and we iay be able to do some good nes better. The old inferiority complex is just about gone." It is not just the Big Schnit- v\. Unscientific and occasion- ly contradictory, enough sub- cctdve evidence nonetheless cx- ts to argue that an increasing umber of Europeans consider imeriea less and less as model r marvel. It comes in loose uggets like this: In Germany, after a gener- tion of television viewing cen- tred around Hoss Cartwright Bonanza and other canned merican shows, sometimes wo a night, the two national etworks are down to two new '.S. serials a week. An official f the ZDF color network exlained: "Everybody still en- oys a western, but most other Tings don't reflect our life or spirations." U-S.

David Rosenthal, a director f Merrill Lunch in Paris ,told friend at lunch: "If most oi he American offices here had 0 go into their French execu- ve or middle management sking for a man to move to he States, they'd find people iding under their desks. Ten. 5 years ago, they would have ned up outside the door. You an'l blow a European's mind nymore by showing him r all oven."

Thi, s likely to occur to somi degrees in other areas regard less of weather conditions. Thi outlook for live cattle price! still calls for strength into summer, but possibly from lower price levels. Better grain markets in the last two days, retail promotion and pickup in commercial in terest have helped broile future to work higher. Beinj long futures is normally no profitable in the second half o May and it will take unusua demand to carry the marke higher. Stocks are in belle shape but still heavy, and thi should prevent any majo advance. With other meats stil basically weak, we prefer tc treat broilers as a trading mar ket. The Fresh Idea Company ...

IMMIGRATION DOWN In France, for example, over he four-year period from 1969 o 197^. the number of cmi- iranls lo the United States fell y 25 per cent, from about 2,000 o 1,500 annually. In Germany, the decrease was from 8,700 to ,700 and in Italy, from 25,500 to 21.000. With Europe wealthier and he dollar weaker, more tour- sts and businessmen felt traveling to the United Stales came within their reach. In France. the number of non-immigrant visas issued rose from 32.000 in 1964 to 105,000 in 1973. At the same time, however, the rise in student visas, a gauge of young people's inlcrest and respect for a country, went up just fractionally. During Ihe first half of I%1, there were 300 French applications for student visas to the United States. By 1973, they had increased to only 391. In Britain, the-brain drain -e m i g r a t i o n .

Immigration official, "is just about a thing of the past.*' So is the notion of the free- spending American tourist. With special Japanese restaurants and personnel, two new hotels in Paris are more oriented to the ^tourist from Tokyo than from Los Angeles.
