Time to pay tribute to agriculture industry November--a month steeped in tradition, a time of harvesting, a time for thanksgivingl And what better time than to pay tribute to the great agricultural industry in Texas for the high quality food and fiber products that are available to consumers. That's why November has been designated as "Food and Fiber Appreciation Month," points out Dr. William Vastine, economist in marketing and food distribution for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. "Farmers and ranchers and those engaged in processing and distributing food and fiber products deserve a great deal of credit for the everyday miracle of feeding and clothing the people of this state and nation," contends Vast,he. "And, with Texas being a leading state in exporting agricuRural products, we are now providing food and fiber for many other countries as well." According to the Texas A&M University System specialist, consumers in the United States spent more than $125 billion for food in 1972, making food retailing the nation's largest retail industry. In Texas the amount totaled about $6.4 billion. Vast,he attributes this continued growth in the food industry to increased per capita disposable income for a growing population and the increased demand for services associated with food. Unemployment is down and with more than 40 per cent of all wives now working, eating out and convenience foods are also adding to the boon in the food industry. "With present-day technology and expertise, agricultural producers now account for only about five per cent of the nation's population. Yet, they do an effÉcient job; in fact, they produce enough food and fiber for themselves and more than 50 other people," notes the economist. "Yet, as more and more generations /of families become further removed from farm and ranch life, agricultural producers are sometimes forgotten and their role in our society and economy is overshadowed by other 'more contemporary' events and happenings. "But they along with the people engaged in the overall agribusiness industry continue to be the backbone of this country, providing waht is so often taken for granted--high quality food and fiber products," Vastine points out.

State Representative Phil Cotes told a Baylor University audience that "Rural Texas will want a State Constitution that will allow us to meet today's challenges/' Rep. Cates discussed the "Role of the House of Representatives in Constitutional Revision" and "The Expected Reception of the New Constitution in Rural Texas" this week at Baylor University in Waco. "The problems of our small towns and rural areas are not the same as Dallas or Houston, but are tied to each other. The New Constitution for Texas will cover both rural and urban Texas. It would allow each area the flexibility to meet the needs faced by each." "Rural Texans will not accept just any new constitution." Rep. Cotes said, "We will demand that the new constitution be a clear improvement over the present Constitution. We will not forfeit the control of the ballot box over our elected officials." "With the view of the debt of our Federal Government, the "pay as you go" policy is as guarded as any provision found in the present Constitution," Rep. Cotes stated• "Taxes will always be viewed with a jaundice eye. A living is earned with hard work, and will only be given to the tax-collector when certain of the need. Taxes must be fairly and equally assessed. Those who make their living from their land should not be taxed for what it might be used for in later days." "While understanding the need for mass transit in Houston, rural Texans still need good farm-to-market roads and good highways to move their products and travel from'town to town." CANDIDATES FOR offlee at the district FTA meeting included PARTICIPATING in the skit at the district FTA meeting were Mona Robinson and Mac Thornberry. Mona won her post, and Shauna Hardin, Terry Saye, Cindy Price, Tracy Cagle, Jan Mac ran unsuccessfully for state office. Barbee, Mona Robinson and Kim Newhouse. Cates discusses new constitution "The rural Texas I know still wants an education for their Interest & Sinking Fund ,  3,176 49,740 children that will Help those children meet the needs of the society they will live in," Rep. Cotes inserted. "The role of the House of Representatives, as such, is almost finished in the task of Constitutional Revision," Rep. Cates noted• "For on January 8th the House of Representatives and the Texas Senate will meet as one body-as members of the 1974 Constitutional Convention of Texas," Rep. Cates continued, pointing out that the voters of Texas had issued a call for a convention with a.resounding 500,000 plus majority in November of 1972. ' .... "The Revision Commission has been the hardest working commission I have ever witnessed. Their public hearings, study, research, and recommendations will be worth more than we will ever know in completing the revision process• The public interest they have spawned and the public education they have created may be one of the most important keys in the Convention's understanding what the public wants and the public understanding what the convention finally passes." "As the convention delegates, we will be working as one body, not two, we will be constitutional convention, not a legislature. There is a difference-and that difference is this-a Legislature sets laws that govern people and their everyday lives. The Convention will spell out the authority that the people of Texas are willing to give to their elected officials. And, it will be the "New Constitution for Texas" that will be setting up the framework of state and local government, hopefully for the next century. And, that is the challenge we all face in January, 1974." Other Fund s :}(4,980).. STATEMENT FOR PUBLICATION 1,267 .....
