Friday, March 2, 1973 The Woodville Republican, Woodviile, Mississippi Page 7 COUNTY AGENT'S NOTES by John J. Dale, Jr. POISON PREVENTION The poisonous hazards of the average household have m- creased greatly during the past few years. Not so many years ago, kerosene, poison flypaper, lye and tincture of iodine coin- prised most cf the domestic ubtances that might be fatal if ,swallowed, Now a horde of Potcn,tially dangerous chemicals have invaded the home. These include products designed to clean clothes, polish silver, clean ovens, wave hair. kill insects and weeds and rats, ,and relieve illness All of these materials are use- ful and beneficial .when used for the intended purposes, but small children cannot reacl the labels and often wind up swal- lowing some of these chemical substances. In fact. 1.8[}0 acci- dental poisonings occurred last year and most of these were children under five years of age. Nation al Poison Prevention Week. March 18-24, is a good time to cheek the situation in your home. Make sure that all household chemicals and medi- cines are out of reach of small children. OUTLOOK The farm income outlook fro" 1973 appears as bright as in 1972 which was a record $18.75 billion for the nation as a whole. Let's take a look as the pre- dictions for Mississippi this year. Cotton acgeage is expected to be down around four percent. Prices may not reach 1972 levels. but th'is depends upon the size of the crop. Soybean acreage s expected to be up in Mississippi by around seven percent with prices ave,r- aging above the 1972 level. Rice production is expected to increase since the allotment has been increased 10 percent. The expected larger production ,will likely cause of decline in price. Mississippi beef production will likely be above 1972 and beef cow numbers will continue to increase. Prices geceived for beef cattle should increase some. Po, rk production should also be up m 1973, but some decline in prices could occur. This will depend upon how.much produc- tion nation-wide is expgnded and also on how beef prices change. ing School.

Catchlng, Jr. Progress Report From the Nississippl A & I Board MississIppians actively in- volved with both economic and industrial progress are most gratified when they review ac- comphshments, of the recently ended calendar year 1972. In terms of economic progress, this year will ,go on record as the most productiwe in history. Mississippi is movingahead a a rapid pace. Mississippi is becoming more dynamic in its pursuit of ex- cellence. Misissippmns are be- coming better informed and are devotin,g mo,e attention to local and state pr, ograms designed to upgrade their standard of liv- ing. They have ,positive attitudes toward giving a full day's work for a day's pay. They have more pride in their homes and they are workirg toward i,mpxoving their municipalities and coun- ties through eivic and commu- n'ity activities. There are many factors con- netted with these general im- provements, but there are prob- ably nonem,ore impogtant than the role vocational-technical ed- ucation is now playing in Mis- sissippi. A large segment of Missis- sippians are finding the pursuit of excellence as a re.sul of pre- paring themselves for the fu- ture in one of more than 120 skills in 16 public junior colleges able to both new and expand- ing industry, and at no ,cost to the company. It is hoped of the A&I Board and the Vocational Division of the Department of Education that more persons will become interested in the state's ,cape= bilities and will utilize the pro- gram to their benefit. In a co- operative effort the A&I Board and the Vo-Tech Division have produced a new booklet which explains he program in detail. Anyone interested in receiving a copy is requested to write the Industrial Department of tle Board at P. O. Box 849. Jackson, Mississippi 39205. Timber Economy Continues Growth Mississippi mills produced an estimated 930 million board feet of Southern Pine lumber in 1972"--80 percent me,re than five years ago and over twice as much as 10 years ago. These figures and compari- sons. released by the Sou.thorn Forest Products Association. in- dicate the accelerating growth rage of Mssissippi's timber economy, the responsiveness of the lumber industry o heavy housing demand for lumber and the rising .stature of the state [as a source of the nati.o,n's sirategically located throughout the state. / forest products. Big industry is now looking 1 at Mississippi as never before[ ,Further documentation of the and the 30.000-pls students now I impcxtance of timber to Mis- l attending . these vocational - I sissippis economy is provided ehnical centers are as much I by the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station of Missis- sippi Sta.te University. Thirty-six percent of the state's manufacturing plants re timber-based, and they ,ac- count for twenty-eight percent of all manufacturing employ- mont. the station says. The forest industries provide twen- ty-six percent of Mississippi% manufactuting payrolls More than 60.000 full-time jobs have resulted from for est-based activities. The ,station also reveals that 56 percen,t of the .total land area in. Mississippi is com- mercial orestlnd, .t h e e- fourbhs of which is owned by non-Industrial private owners--- mostly in small individual tracts. In add, ition .to lumber, .the manufacture of Southern Pine plywqod .as become a ,major factor in Mississippi's forest- based economy. Mississippi's plywood plants have an annual capei'ty approaching 600 mil- lion squre feet. The state is also one of the nation's leading producens of pulp and paper products. Since 1960, manufacturing payrolls in Mississippi's timber based plants have increased substantially, goin up nearly 60 p,rcent in a recent five year period. To assure adequate supplies of timber for the future. Missis- sippi is in the vanguard of the South's Third Forest pogram, whose objective is to double timber .growth in the region prior to the end of this century. This is to be accomplished by giving small, private land,owners the financial incentives and technical assistance they need to practice wise fo,rest manage- mont.

Each junior college in the state now has one or more highly developed vo-tech ,cen- ters where two years of college education is welded together with two yeags of occupation,al training suitable for both youth and adult employment needs. The Mis,sissippi State Legisla- ture, regular session of 1964, en- acted two very inportant pieces of legis,lation btat have been tsrument.l li:'devel, oping ,this realm of education. Senate Bill No. 1587 and .House Bill No 215, together, created local, state and federal funding for all pub- lic junior colleges and placed evexy coun.ty in the state in a specific junior college district. As a resul of these two acts,, funds in the amount of $28 m,il- I lion have .been app:opriated for the development of these facil- lties since July 1, .1964. The diversified academic, vo- cational and technical curricula established in junior colleges adds at least four plus-factors o hig,h school graduates' in- tedrests, abilities and needs. First, the high school gradu- ate finds in a two-year pro- gram the kind of ,educati,onal program specifically designed to meet his inter, est and need, whether they plan to continue their education or begin imme- diately their working ereers as skill,ed craftsmen or as trained technicians. ,Public junior col.leges offer two years of higher education to students at a low cost. ost persons can save the cost of room and beard and use fee public transportation. Public junior colleges are fully adapted to the a,?:ricultural and industrial training needs of cur state's people. And last, .the challenge that flls upon the state public jun- ior colleges is one of meeting the needs of a large segment of studentd who will enroll as a result of economic needs a,nd plan to enter the labor market after one or two years of skilled training. The junior colleges are eer- cising productive leadership to- day as a ,result of the 30,000 students enrolled in these pro- gra,ms. The need for more and better trained ,,workers is a far cry from the need five years ago. Mississippi has ,reached an- other milestone n *the initiation of a first class "start-up" pro- gram. 'W, hst'the state needs now, however, is for the pro- ,gram to be properly promoted, both to industry and he stu- dent. Pug state now has the capa- bility of having tained labor ready for employment ,'by the time the plant has been con- s.tmcted. Mississippi has the facilities, equipmen, and know- hc,w to conduct trainlg pro- grams for the dlcrlmlnatin industry with tailored accUxacy.
