The Clarendon Press, August 2, Page 10 Atomic Merit. Local News Badge offered o R Mrs. Annice Cooper of tIouston, Mrs. John In order to assure adequate supplies for domestic and ex- port markets Secretary of Agriculture Ed Butz has announc- ed that there will be no government set-aside of land during 1974, according to the Donley County ASCS offices The effect of this announcement will be to free farmers in Donley County and across the nation to go all out to produce wheat, cotton, feed grains and soy beans. The maintenance of an established conserving base will not be required as a condition of eligibility to receive price support or program payments. Conserving base requirements will remain in effect for those producers having land retired under the Cropland Ad- justment Program. However, producers with existing CAP agreements which continue through 1974 and subsequent years are being given the opportunity to terminate their agreements if they so desire. It will be necessary for a farmer to file a written request with the ASCS office prior to destruction of cover crop in preparation for a 1974 crop if he were to end his agreement. This announcement does not necessarily mean there will be no price support or program payments for 1974. It means farmers will not have to set aside land or maintain conserving base land as a condition of eligibility to re- ceive price support or program payments for 1974. It was reported that Butz took this action after looking over the two farm bills passed by the Senate and House and found both in agreement over the ending of set- aside. The Senate and House are presently ironing out differences in their two farm bills. The conferees have accepted the House passed figures for a new target price concept, well below those approved by The U. S. Atomic Energy Commission Area Manager, Tom C. Jones, has announced Joint efforts with Mason & Hanger- Silas Mason Co., Inc. the prime operating contractor for the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, and Sandia Laboratories, Kirt- land Air Force Base, Albuquerque, N. M., to conduct a four- session seminar allowing scouts to earn the highly coveted Atomic F'nergy Merit Badge. This year's seminar is open to Boy Scouts from the Llano Estacado and Adobe Walls Co- uncils and Girl Scouts from the Quivira and Amarillo Girl Scout Councils. In earning the Atomic Energy Merit Badge the scouts will participate in lectures, demonstrations, and lab work, all designed to introduce the historical background of atomic energy; the mysteries of radiation, isotopes, and reactors; peaceful uses of atomic power; and careers in nuclear en- ergy. This year's seminar will be conducted on four Saturday mornings starting at 8:30 a.m., October 13, 30, 27, and Nov- ember 3, at Tascosa High School in Amarillo. Scouts de- siring to attend may register through their individual units on an advance basis. After successfully completing the merit badge require- ments, November 9 and 10, 1973, the scouts will have the opportunity to take a field trip to Klrtland Air Force Base Sandia Laboratories, Albuquerque, N M., and Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, Los Alamos, N. M., the historical birthplace of Nuclear Power. m,ilUl ill Mr. and Mrs. Sandy Skelton and daughter of Midland, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Holiday and Mr. and Mrs. Everett Monroe of Lubbock were eekent guestsof Mr. and Mrs. Willard Skelton.

The target price guarantees the farmer a set price for his product. The cost of production escalator would raise the target price as production costs increase through the four year life of the bill. Under the target price, a farmer would be guaranteed $2.05 for a bushel of wheat, $1.38 for a bushel of corn and 38 cents for a pound of cotton. The Senate bill, abandoned, would have guaranteed $2.28 for wheat, $1.53 for corn and 43 cents for cotton. Under the target price concept, a figure would be designated for .te fir.tyear and the ,es:alator would annually adjust the 1 ev." -"= If existing relationships are continued between farm prices and crop production costs, no subsidy payments would be necessary. But if prices drop sharply, growers would re- ceive payments making up the difference between the target and their sales returns.
