The House provision would stay all court busing orders until all appeals are exhausted, for- bid use of federal funds for bus- ing because of race, and prohibit iederal agencies from ordering busing as a condition of receiv- ing federal aid.

Ronnie Tay- language. of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Taylor of Straughn On the floor of the House last Division. Wednesday, I spoke on the clues- lion of forced busing. I said: I am unalterably opposed, and always will be to busing school children many miles each day, solely to achieve specified inte- grated ratios. The people of Alabama, and of our 2rid Dis- trict, are good, law-abiding cit- izens. They have made, and are making, every effort to com- ply with what they believe is the law of the land -- the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Forced busing, in many cases, takes children out of their friendly neighborhood schools, many within walking distance, and places them in a totally alien environment several miles from home. Forced busing not only has a detrimental effect on children who are taken from their familar environment, where they have estpblished good friends, but it is most expensive to main- fain a massive busing system. Education costs are rising fast enough, so why should we ac. celerate those costs by insti- tuting and maintaining massive forced busing systems,that the parents and children do not want in the first place? As parents, we are concerned about our children's education. We want the best education available for them, but at t same time, we want our rigM under the constitution, freedom of choice, the law of the land, 0rider the forced busing system, if a child chooses to i go to a school two blocks from his home, he may be denied that right and bused 20 miles to ano- ther school.

There are several disad- vantages to planting peanuts or soybeans on the same land fol- lowing each other. They are: ('1) Both of these are legume crops and feed heavily on cal- cium and potash from the soil. (2) Both are damaged by Sou- thern Blight (White Mold) and planting following each other can build up this disease in the soil• Town & Country Shoes and bags of patent give a touch Filgrim • White Metisse Kid $22.00 Sizes: 5 to 10 Widths: AAAA to B Also Matching Bags Gusto kINDER - EXTENSION FASM AOENTS (3) Planting these crops fol- lowing each other also 'can lead to a buildup of Nematodes in the soil that would be injurious to both crops.

During 1971 Alabama farmers used 783,000 tons of lime com- pared to only 144,000 tons in 1960. This shows lots of pro- gress but farmers should continue to use more lime until 'all their land is properly limed. Acid soils or land that needs lime will not produce top yields. What is the average number of pigs saved per litter in Ala- bama? The average number of pigs saved oer litter is seven• If producers could increase the number saved from seven to ten pigs, there would be forty per- cent increase in production. We cannot get a similar increase as easily in any other area of hog production• h, mm dmU.& &mare._..___.
