Subsidized Cheese Still Flows Into U.S. Despite Court Order WASHINGTON (AP) Subsidized cheese from Eu- rope is still flowing into the United States despite an an- nouncement a month ago by Common Market officials that the payments would halt, says the agriculture department. Technically, according to USDA officials, Lhe subsidized cheese does not violate the announcement made July 12 that such payments would stop. One said last week that European exporters apparent- ly were advised they could "prc-fix" or register cheese shipments in advance to quali- fy for subsidies. Situation Described The USDA official, who asked not to be identified, de- scribed the situation this way: "The Common Market, which had been subsidizing cheese and other dairy exports in order to unload surplus output, allowed shipping firms to register prospective U. S. sales up to six months in ad- vance so they would qualify for the subsidies. Then, according to the July 12 announcement, no subsidies would be paid on further new exports to the U. S. market. Meantime, the official said, an estimated 44 million pounds roughly metric tons were registered for subsidies under the "pre- fix" arrangement. Farm Opposition Under U. S. dairy import quotas, the European com- munity is allowed 63 million pounds of quota-type cheese this calendar year. Specialty cheese valued at more than 78 cents per pound is exempted, as are some other types. As of June 30, by USDA reckoning, about 20 million pounds of quota-type Europe- an cheese had entered this year. Thus, more than (he remainder of this year's quota already had been registered for subsidies ranging from 12 to 35 cents per pound. Farm groups had opposed the Common Market subsidies and had urged that the U. S. treasury department collect countervailing duties on the imports so that European dairy products would not undercut domestic prices. The issue came to a head this summer as a result of a lawsuit by the National Milk Producers Federation" which sought a ruling on the ques- tion of countervailing duties. A U. S. district court, al- though granting a stay of 120 days, said if the European subsidies were reimposed, treasury should begin collect- ing duties. Meanwhile, according to the USDA .source, Europeans are using a loophole in the ar- rangement to continue ship ping subsidized cheese int the United States. Ray Gets Honorary Citation AMES (AP) Gov. Rober Ray was one of two person awarded honorary member ships in Alpha Zeta, an hon orary agricultural fraternity at its 34th biennial nationa conclave at Iowa State univer sity in Ames last week.
