Norlhwwt Arkoraat T1MIS, W*d., JUM 3, 1974 «V«TTiVltLK. MKAH«At County Agent Cautions Of Fowl Mites Arkansas poultry producers with laying flocks should inspect their birds closely for legations of Northern fowl mites, suggests County Extension Agent Carl E. Rose. Jn a short time these mites can become numerous enough to noticeably lower egg production and adversely affect the health of the birds. The firsl recored infestation of this pest in Arkansas was In I960. Since that time festations have continued to show up in different areas of the slate. Some particularly bad Infestations were recorded from southwest Arkansas in 1973. Northern fowl mites stay on the body of the infested bird at al times. This contrasts with the habits of the common chicken red mite, which leaves the birrt during Ihe day. Mite infestations can often be recognised when feathers, espc cialy around the vent, bcom cially around the vent, become off-colored. Close inspection wiT reveal live mites, excrement, shed skins and eggs, a 1 1 clustered together. During heavy in festalions, eggs from infester birds may be found cove ret with the mites. Northern fowl mite can be spread by moving egg cases from- farm to farm. Sparrows establish men probably the one are flying from to another most common way of .spreading infestations within an area.

Raymond Pough, a porter, died of injuries suffered lasl October when Urso's car ran a red light and struck Pough's auto. "The money will be set up in a trust fund for the two children."

He is acting supervisor of the Biscayne Annex poat office and earns SI1.- 500 a year. The idea was accepted whole heartedly by Pough's widow Linda, 22.

Milk is a prime source of nutrition for Americans and most shoppers are not in a position :o pass it up like a steak when the price isn't right. And, that price depends what the dairy farmer is paid Says Montgomery Couldn't Tell Truth The laie Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, right, is quoted in an interview with author Cornelius Ryan as saying t h a t Britain's World War II commander, Field Marshal L o r d Montgomery, left, jnst couldn't tell the t r u t h . The interview, part of a soon to be published hook, also quoted Eisenhower, the supreme Allied commander in Europe during the war, as saying he became so angry with Montgomery t h a t he broke off all contact with the British w a r hero. (AP Wircphoto) Official Tells Of AMPI Manipulations for his raw milk. The federal government and others, who have filed anti-trust suits against Associated Milk Producers, inc. ( A M P I ) the nation's largest milk cooperative, are seeking evidence about its alleged attempts to manipulate prices. In this small agriculture center hard by t h e Oklahoma border, lawyers took testimony Tom former co op secretary Dwight L. Morris. Morris, 55, testified under subpoena last week, and explained subsequently in an in ierview in the presence of his lawyer, that AMPI "overpaid" dairy farmers for m a n u f a c luring grade milk in Minnesota and Wisconsin. RIDDED J)P CHEESE The co op, which controls about 12 per cent of the nation's milk supply, also "bidder up" the price of cheese on a key exchange in G r e e n Bay came AMPI's general manager n 1972, has testified he has no direct knowledge of .manipulation of milk prices in'Minnesota and Wisconsin in 1970 a n d , jased on his career in and out of government as an agricul .ural economist, has said it is silly to conclude a co op could assert such influence. POLITICAL PAYOFF Besides the anti-trust s u i t , AMPI is the target in Watergate m i l k fund investigations and, as a heavy contributor, is involved in allegations that the 1971 m i l k price support increase by President Nixon was a political payoff. The White House has denied the allegations, which now are being investigated by the House Judiciary Committee studying an impeachment resolution.

Gardner, founder of the citizens lobby group, told the National Governors Conference meeting here that he commended the states for responding to Watergate with their own elhics-in-govcrnment laws. But he said Congress had failed to respond "to citizens concern for a house-cleaning in politics." He cited Mills and Rep. Wayne Hays, D-Ohio., c h a i r m a n of the House Administrator Committee, whom he said had bottled up campaign Financing r.eforrn.

The pastor" of the world's largest Southern Baptist church is the first to acknowledge that not all of his money has come from his salarv at First Baptist. The Rev. Dr. Criswell said he has received substantial income from the sate of his more than 15 books, numerous speaking engagements and some private gifts. "Through the history of this country, the pendulum has swung back and forth on m a n y issues and it is now swinging very strongly in reaction to the excesses that we have seen in the past year," Bumpers said. "It would be very easy to allow the pendulum to swing too far and for the reaction to be too severe." The governors will vote today on strong resolution disclosure calling for and public ethics laws al all levels.

(AP) -- A Fort Smith, Ark., man will be arraigned here Friday -on a charge of embezzlement by bailee. Lawrence Aubrey Wells, 43, originally charged with obtaining money under false pretenses, waived a preliminary hearing charge. George W. the amended Lindley set Wells 1 bond at $5,000. The defendant remained in jail Tuesday. Authorities said Wells was charged with engineering a money swindling which he alleged scheme posed gasoline salesman offering fuel supplies at cut-rate prices. op's alleged campaign to increase prices: AMPI was getting a premium of 50 cents per hundredweight n its southern region. The premium, paid by processors to insure a supply, could be oblain- ed because of the heavy propor- :ion of farmers in the southern region who used AMPf to market their milk. In some areas in the southern region. AMPI had a complete monopoly, the Justice Department charges. In the nation's dairy b e 11 in M i n n e s o t a a n d Wisconsin, AMPI was not so proportionate ly persuasive. M-W SERIES It is there, however, that the U.S. Department of Agriculture computes monthly a factor called the M-W (Minnesota-Wisconsin) series, a floor price for milk from the farm which sets the trend for milk prices in the rest of the nation. The Agriculture Department, using a sample of HO secretly selected milk processors, calculates the average farm milk price. "We were taking money from the South and paying money to the North to make our shippers producers in a better com- pitive situation," said Morris In other words, Morris s a i d AMPI w a s shifting revenues from its southern region (revenues that included the premium of 50 cents per hundredweight' to its northern region so it could pay farmers there more (nan the market price. In the anti-trust suit, that procedure has been termed "plugging the price" in the north. "If we raised the M-W series price . . . a nickel (per nun dredweight) by sending 15 cents into this area, riot onb we (AMPI) but the whole na lion (dairy farmers) woult make a nickel," Morris testi- ied. HUNDREDS OP MILLIONS Asked if the result could be 'hundreds of millions of dol- ars" annually in such increases nationwide, Morris answered, "Yess." Referring to amounts sent by AMPI from the south to the north to overpay farmers, Morris said: "If we spent a million, we stood to gain a hundred times that much." "Morris said one of the purposes ol influencing the M-W price series upward was political. "The higher t h e M-W price series was, the easier it would be [or the government to set a months prior to nouncemenl, the higher support If we got the market p r i c e up above $100,000 In Gems Stolen In London LONDON armed men (AP) blasted T h r e e a display shop vhat Ihe support level was, ihe ess money the government would have to pay out in supports," he said. The controversial support order by President Nixon in 1971 was $4.93 per hundredweight, or 27 cents above the prior year's S4.6G support level. Two Nixon's an- il W price series figure had risen to $4.83, jassing the 1870 government support level by 17 cents. "· The staff of the Senate Wa; tcrgate Committee said in a special report (hat the N'ixon decision "was apparently wort- ·inywhere from S300 million to S70D million in extra income to :lairy farmers" and added, 'The cost was shared by government and American consumers." This a p p a r e n t l y would have been in addition to any direct benefits dairymen received from alleged influencing of the M-W series. ; In a document in evidence in the anti-trust cases, an AMPI economist lists under Ihe heading of accomplishments of the co-op: "Increased the level of the M-W manufacturing milk jirice series through January, February and March 1370." window in a jewelry New Bond Street with a shotgun today, grabbed $120,000 in gems and fled through central London as police pursued them.
