Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - September 28, 1970, Florence, South CarolinaEls Matt far iting monday september 28, mos a common Market farm planners set future goals Washington a Agri cultural planners in the six a Ion european economic Community have set up some Long Range goals that May sound familiar to american Farmers who have seen their own num Bers dwindle and production patterns change radically. The dec or common Market goals also Owlet Nave a dramatic bearing on How much and what Type of commodities american Farmers sell to Europe five or 10 years from now. Collectively the common Market countries of France West Germany Italy the Netherlands Belgium and Luxem Bourg represent the largest sin Gle overseas sales outlet for . Farmers despite recent difficulties As a result if variable or selective import duties on some products. During the year ended june 30 . Farm exports totalled billion with the common mar Ket share almost billion. Exports to Japan have grown tremendously meanwhile and last fiscal year topped billion a record for . Farm sales to a single country. But however important Japan is to american exports per haps a greater key to the future of . Agricultural marketing is the common Market and How it functions Over the next dec Ade. Agriculture department officials occasionally acknowledge they see Little Hope soon of gain ing a sharply larger share of the european farm Market. One View Here is that com Mon Market Tariff policies Are Loo locked in for any great in crease in . Farm sales. But officials believe it is imperative that negotiations continue and that . Exports to Europe Are not allowed to deteriorate. There is some feeling among agriculture department experts hat if the common Market implements plans for revamping european agriculture these could Benefit America producers considerably. The common Market Council is considering the so called Mansholt plan which basically seeks a reduction in the number of farms an expansion by those remaining much greater meat production and a reduction of bothersome surpluses particularly in Dairy products. Small Farmers who wish to quit would be offered financial inducements and their land turned Over to planners to be used for forestry recreation or made available to larger opera tors who modernize their sys tems. One school of la mughal Here says that if Europe turns to much larger production of live Stock and a higher degree of specialization it could mean important increases for . Feed grains in that Market. Ideally Nixon administration farm officials have said the variable levies imposed on some imported commodities should be eliminated. These include products such As livestock feed grains and wheat items not specifically granted Tariff conces Sions under the general agree ment on tariffs and Trade. Because they were exempted trim Gatt concessions officials say the common Market is free to adjust tariffs at will to protect european production thus barring free Competition from . Products.

Stalk destruction there Are a number of reasons Why we suggest that Farmers practice Early stalk destruction. Space would not allow us to discuss All of these reasons. We would like to mention just a few. The Southern Corn Leaf blight is present to one extent or another in most every Field of Corn in the county. We Are told that this disease will live Over on old Corn stalks and that the spores will be present to attack Corn planted next year. While one of the most effective practices that Corn producers May use to reduce this damage will be the use of certain varieties that have tolerance to the disease Early stalk destruction and covering of these stalks is a practice that will help. We Are also finding the european Corn Borer in Many of our Corn Fields. This insect bores into the stalk of the Plant weakening it enough to make it break Over in Many cases. It also bores into the base of the ear of Corn and Many times one can fully do veloce mature ears of Corn drop to the ground. In either Case yields May be reduced depending upon the extent of damage done by this insect. At the present time there Are no chemicals recommended for control of this insect. The cultural practice of Early stalk destruction and the Bury ing of this material will have a great Deal to do with the control of this insect. Burying the old stalks prevents the Moths from emerging to Lay eggs for future generations. With Only these two pests in mind it appears to us that it would be to the advantage of All Corn producers for All of them to practice Early stalk destruction and turning under of the old stalks Etc. Tax course the annual income tax course for tax consultants who assist Farmers and Small businesses will be held in Florence no. 10, 11, and 12, 1970.

And carpels main St. Clemson sometime in the near future a major share of the financial resources in South Carolina will have to be directed to alleviating and improving residential housing. This is a consensus being formed by members of Clemson University s housing committee who Are studying the problem created by past economic conditions and present social demands. This conclusion May come As a Surprise to Many who have seen during the decade of the 1960 s Many significant improvements in housing in the Palmetto state. Less Likely to be observed simply because they have been there Are the thousands of marginal and sub Standard houses which Are no longer sufficient for the rising aspirations of the state s multiplying families. More definitive information on the adequacy or Inadequacy of housing will come when data from the 1970 census Are published. When it comes Don t be surprised if serious deficiencies Are shown. The advances during the last decade were made in spite of a considerable Handicap in View of 1960 census data. That census listed occupied housing units. Of these slightly More than one half were classified As sound with All plumbing facilities. Of the total number 21 per cent were classified a s deteriorating and 12 per cent were dilapidated one third with serious deficiencies. In addition 21 per cent were classified As crowded with crowding ranging up to 40 per cent in Rural rental units. Housing specialists Here Point out that it s unrealistic to expect that these problems will have been greatly improved in a period of 10 years. To have done so would have meant the bringing of houses annually up to the higher standards not counting the increase in hous ing units required by formation of new families. Such an achievement is unlikely despite enormous efforts by private and Public lending agencies and builders. The recent High interest rates and tight Money Market have helped Stem Progress slowing residential building to a Snail s Pace. However one Agency Mak ing significant Progress in serving moderate income families is the Farmers Home corps Center at it. Mcclellan Ala. Army spec. 5 Thomas fennel son of or. And mrs.

This Federal Agency makes Loans t o families in Rural areas for faulting houses which Range below Farmers Home administration funds in the Palmetto state this year will be increased to about up from million last year. At this year s figure the Farmers Home administration will be Able to lend Money for perhaps to houses. Private lending agencies and the Federal housing authority also lend to moderate income families but the feeling Here is that rising aspirations of families and increasing population will create a Long time unsatisfied demand for housing.
