"Some farmers and ranchers may be in a quandary over the present state of affairs, but the ball game hasn't changedmjust the rules," says Cecil Parker, economist with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. "For the first time in a long while, agricultural producers find themselves in a situation where both costs and prices are rising. In recent years, production costs have risen while prices received for agricultural products remained generally stable. But now prices are also moving up and producers are finally seeing the outcome of the ball game in a different light." The Texas A&M University System economist points out that farm prices, costs and demands for farm products have reached a new plateau during the first half of 1973. But how long will this situation continue? Parker expects present conditions in the farm economics picture to continue until at least 1975. "Record crops are expected this year and in 1974 and there should be no drastic change in domestic and foreign demands for agricultural commodities during the next two years." According to the economist, U.S. farmers could realize a gross income of about $85 billion this year. This would be a 23 percent, or $19.5 billion, increase over 1972. Of course, production expenses have also shown a record increase and could be up about $12 billion by the end of the year. During the first six months of 1973, costs of farm-originated production inputs--feed, seed and feeder cattleaveraged 35 percent above the first half of 1972. At the same time, production inputs of non-farm origin--fertilizer, fuel, equipment -- in- creased only 7 percent during the first half of 1973 compared to the same period last year. What do the coming months hold as far as farm costs are concerned? "Record crops this fall should lower feed costs somewhat," believes Parker. "However, the prices of those input items not originating on the farm will continue at a high level and may even increase due to increased production costs." Amarillo Tuesday. Mrs. T. A.

MARRIAGE ANDTHE HOME About here the men are always saying, "Amenl AmenI", while the women are accusing the Apostle Paul of being an old bachelor who didn't know what he was talking about, and then the Apostle says, "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ, also loved the church, and gave hlmsd[ for it" [Eph. 5:25]. Now men, that's a lot of level Christ died for the church. The Apostle is saying that a man ought to love his wife enough to die for her if necessary. This is a little more involved, fellows, than ruling the little lady with a rod of iron. The word Paul used for "love" means to put her before yourself. It means to prefer her before yourself. It means to think of her before you think of yourself. It means to consider her wishes, her desires, her comforts, before you do your own. And while you are catching your breath, men, the Apostle Paul going on up there!" g your farm inventory?. This is The home was the first institution of mankind and was ordained by God himself. There has always been down through the centuries a vast difference between the Biblical concept of marriage and the home and the various cultures of the nations of the world. This is no less true today. The Biblical concept of the home has ceased to be the concept vf our modern American culture if it ever was. To say the least, the Biblical concept is greatly blurred through what we see today. The things the Bible says about marriage and the .home sound strange to many people. The Apostle Paul discussed the Biblical concept of marriage and the home with the Christian church of his day. He pointed out that the Christian concept is distinctive. The Christian home, according to the Apostle, is to be an example of the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Christian home, 'being this, is thereby different from the customs and culture of the times. This wos so in the pagan culture of the Greek-Roman world. It is true today [Epheslans 5:22-33]. good time to review your insurance stored crops, livestock and farm and buildings.

He discusses the roles of the wife and husband and in that order. The wife is to submit herself to her husband as unto the Lord. Most modern women, where this is concerned, say, "Now wait just a minutel" The next statement of the Apostle even sounds more preposterous to the modern woman: "For the hushend is the head of the wife, even as Owlst is the head of the church." He closes his discussion of the wife's role by saying, "And the wife see that she reverence her husband." [v 33]. WALT KNORPP PH. 874-3521 Back the youth of Clarendon as they seek to serve the Lord.

He that loveth his wife loveth hlmsoiL For no man ever yet hated hls own flesh, but nourlsheth and chorisheth it..." [Eph. 5:2&29.] Men, if you need an explanation of this, you're too immature to be married. Let me spell it out for you anyway. It means that if you hurt that little lady, you are destroying your own flesh. Ladies, the Apostle Paul wasn't such an old blow-hard after all, was he? You need to remember that the same Bible that tells your husband to love you so much also tells you to submit yourself to him in love (considering him first, putting him first, thinking first of his welfare). This isn't all. The Apostle says that when you leave home to get married that you ought to really leave home: "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall he Joined uato his wife, and they two shall he one flesh" [Eph. 5:31]. This means that you leave room and dad and all the kiss-and-kin. Your wife is first. That man you married comes first. You two are starting a new home, a new family unit. To go running back to mom and dad every time a little trouble comes up is taboo. It also says that mom and dad ought to keep their nose out of their kids business, fusses, and marriage problems and let them work them out for themselves. Parents with good intentions have caused a lot of divorces. Does all of this sound strange to you? This is the Biblical concept of marrige and home building. This is what the Christian home is to be. This is how it is to operate. This is how Christian husbands and wives are to relate to each other. Those who operate in this fashion seldom have to see a lawyer or a marriage counselor. Things work themselves out in an atmosphere of love and devotion of the husband for his wife and the wife for her husband. Why not try it God's way? You might be surprised at the results.
