LEE Progress Staff Writer (Third of Five Articles) In his haste to get off the farm, to move closer to urban centers and their schools and services, and to move away from the grow- ing pressures of low income farming, the rural American has created a new phenom- enon which may bring him as many prob- lems as he is seeking to flee. It is the rural-urban fringe area, a com- munity than can't really be called 3 communi- ty, a region that cannot be classified as niral or urban as it takes on the characteristics of both. In the fringe area, the farmer attempts to shed the drawbacks of rural living while clinging to rural institutions like the church He seeks urban employment but finds he n not sufficiently skilled. He wants regulation of junkyards and installment of street lights, yet hewls at the mention of the word "zon- ing." In moving from a rural to an urban en- vironment, the farmer has many problems. Primarily, says sociologist Howard Bonser of Penn State, he finds himself seeking or ful- filling a job for which he is not trained, and he is not equipped for urban living.

Penn Stale Rural sociologist Hcaslcy adds that they usual- ly retain the same shopping patterns, doctors, and other services, despite their intention of obtaining better services by moving off the farm. Bonser states that, although they usual- ly try to join a church in the urban area, there is at least a two or three-year lag be- fore they make themselves felt in the church community. Job opportunities for rural people off the farm are not in abundance "Most farmers are says farm statistician Reid MUlcr. "and many move to the city only if their friends are there. The older people go to the city and remain practically dormant The young people go into public works and job-retraining programs. Some people remain on their farms, but don't farm the land and take part-time city jobs Smith agrees that young people have a NEWSPAPER! Please Turn to Page 12, Col. 1 NEWSPAPER! ;
