Subsidized Cheese Still Flows Into U.S. Despite Court Order WASHINGTON (AP) -Subsidized cheese from Europe is still flowing into the United States despite an announcement a month ago by Common Market officials that the payments would halt, says the agriculture department. Technically, according to USDA officials, Ihe subsidized cheese does not violate the announcement made July 12 that such payments would stop. One said last week that European exporters apparently were advised they could “pre-fix” or register cheese shipments in advance to qualify for subsidies. Situation Described The USDA official, who asked not to be identified, described 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 advance 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 20,000 metric tons — were registered for subsidies under the “prefix” arrangement. Farm Opposition Under U. S. dairy import quotas, the European community 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 European cheese had entered this year. Thus, more than the 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 question of countervailing duties. A U. S. district court, although granting a stay of 120 days, said if the European subsidies were reimposed, treasury' should begin collecting duties. Meanwhile, according to the USDA source, Europeans are using a loophole in the ar rangement to continue shipping subsidized cheese into the United States. Ray Gets Honorary Citation AMES (AP) — Gov. Robert Ray was one of two persons awarded honorary memberships in Alpha Zeta, an honorary agricultural fraternity, at its 34th biennial national conclave at Iowa State university in Ames last week. Also selected was Richard Lyng, president of the American Meat Institute in Washington and undersecretary of agriculture from 1969 to 1973. Two Selected A Ray spokesman said two persons are chosen annually for honorary initiation into the fraternity. He said it has about 60.000 members and has its largest chapter at Ames. He said Ray “was recognized for his agricultural leadership in Iowa and throughout the nation.” The fraternity is for men and women whose educational objectives and careers fall within a broadly defined area of agriculture. About 150 undergraduate students from 42 states were in attendance. ;
