Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32--THE LETHBRIDGE July France's farmer exodus More than one use for mail box Postman Lloyd Fisher of the B.C. post office department finds his job comforting at times. He was caught by a photographer napping inside his postal relay box after finishing one section of his route arrived with more mail. PARIS The exodus of farmers from France's rural areas remains one of the most pressing problems fac- ing President Valery Giscard d'Estaing's government. Twenty years France's rural population accounted for 33 per cent of the country's work force while today it has dropped by more than half and forms no more than 11 per cent of the total. Despite agricultural production continues to increase. In production increased 25 per cent over the preceding year and it almost reached the mark in making France one of the leading agricultural forces in Western Europe. But if the current rate of farmers leaving the land farms are deserted an- will find it dif- ficult to keep its leading posi- tion in that field. There are numerous causes for the exodus. Farmers do not only leave the land because they are better paid in industry but also because the countryside is not as well equipped with educational and transporta- tion facilities. Another curious phenomenon has added to the the difficulties en- countered by single men in trying to find a spouse. Young even those who grew up on are increasingly reluctant to marry farmers. Among farmers between the and before the truck ages of 25 and more than 57 per cent are unmarried while the comparable rate among ui'ban workers is 27 per cent. the new govern- ment has brought some hope to the country's farmers. In his campaign for the Giscard said he believes farmers' income should be to that of professionals in other The appointment of Jacques a former agriculture as prime minister represents a boost to farmers. The choice of Christian Bon- net as minister of agriculture is also intended as a morale booster for farmers since he describes himself as damentally a man of the Bonnet wants the govern- ment to make farming profitable and bring an end to the rural exodus by improving facilities and social services. The minister has said better road and educational facilities will greatly increase the chances of survival of France's beleagured farmers PROJECT APPROVED Lebanon Saudia Arabia's state oil com- pany Petromin is to build what probably will be the world's largest gas gathering and processing the Middle East Economic Survey reports.
