Carter from Page 1a ment Peanut support program an explanation was provided monday by Paul Holmes who serves under Butz As executive director of the agriculture department s agricultural stabilization and Conser vation service in Georgia a state which produces More than 40 per cent of the nation s peanuts. Trying to assure Farmers of Good prices Holmes in a Telephone interview from his Home near Athens a the Federal government decreed about 30 years ago that no More than s10.000 acres of peanuts would be planted in this country each year with acreage allotted to each Farmer on the basis of his past production planting More than one acre of peanuts without an allotment is illegal the government also set a support Price for peanuts which goes up each year with inflation and promised to buy at that Price any peanuts which Farmers could not sell to private firms Holmes said the program has become increasingly expensive in recent years for a number of reasons first the government support Price has shot up with inflation from per ton in 1971 to 50 last year when the world Market Price was in the neighbourhood of that Means the govern ment has been sustaining a considerable loss when it buys peanuts and Sells them on the world Market. Butz estimated the Cost of the program last year at million second new technology allows Farmers to grow Lar More peanuts per acre these Days. Thirty years ago. Holmes said growers averaged 800 pounds per acre last year Georgia Farmers averaged pounds per acre that Means the Supply of peanuts has increased roughly four times which demand has not kept Pace and the govern ment is left with More and More peanuts. It also Means that guaranteed a buyer for every Peanut they produce on a government allotted acre Are really making a Holmes said he estimated that 40 per cent of last year s Peanut crop was purchased by the Federal government. Carter Sells Little to the government because Only about 2 per cent of the peanuts he grows on his 228 6-acre allotment Are Edi ble peanuts the rest being seed peanuts sold to other Farmers for new planting but says Holmes Carter and other producers of seed peanuts Benefit indirectly from the artificially High Price maintained by the government because the Price of seed peanuts goes up generally with increases in the Price of the end product. For Consumers he said the program is double not Only costing them million in taxes but also forcing them to pay More for Peanut products because processors have to exceed the government sup port Price to Purchase peanuts.

But the Union is also in sisting on a Cost of Hving allowance without a ceiling on adjustments arguing that court from Page a question. Another capital punishment Case was argued last april before the court but the justices never decided that Issue. Lawyers for the six men appealing their death sentences claim not much has changed since the court s ruling in the Furman Case non mandatory death penalty statute permits the same discretionary sentencing system condemned by Furman is. Said lawyers for Charles William Proffitt whose Case is before the court. Lawyers for Troy l. Gregg sentenced to die for a double murder and armed robbery said the Georgia Law involves a series of uncontrolled discretionary judgments that operate to spare the lives of some defendants while others in similar Circum stances Are sentenced to die " the state of Georgia answers that the argument is nothing More than a demand that we revert to a system of mandatory penalties fixed for narrowly categorized crimes so that regardless of mitigating circumstances or the personal history of the defendant the death penalty would be automatic once guilt was members were penalized More than 50 cents hourly in 1974-75 wages because of the current in cent ceiling.
