Yancey County Farmers'
who would like to become
certified to apply restricted
use pesticides now have the
opportunity to do so.
Johnny Hensley, Yancey
County , Ass’t. Agricultural
Extension Agent, said a series
of classes are planned for
farmers on pesticide use.
By attending two 2-hour
classes farmers can obtain a
form which they can use to get
a certificate from the N.C.
Department of Agriculture.
Under a new federal law,
farmers must have this
certificate before they can buy
restricted-use pesticides for
their 1978 crop. This means
that farmers will need to
attend the classes by the fall
of 1977, Hensley said.
Hensley said the classes
are being organized and
taught by the Agricultural
Extension Service. “We try to
make the classes as meaning
ful to farmers as possible,”
Hensley added. Topics co
vered include pest identifica
tion, types of pesticides and
how they work, and pesticide
safety, equipment, applica
tion rates and regulations.

I WASHINGTON—Perhaps a few comments are in order
concerning the constantly increasing number of political
pressure groups which take it upon themselves to attack
Senators and Representatives with whom they disagree.
These pressure groups can be found all across the poli
■ tical spectrum. Some operate on big budgets with large staffs.
1/ Others are small —some of them are individuals with a politi
i cal ax to grind.
And all of them count on the news media to get their
"message" across, free of charge.
HUNGER- -For example, in late October, just before
the election, an outfit piously catling itself a "Christian citizens
lobby," issued a press release in which it launched an attack
on a number of members of Congress. Many newspapers,
two or three of North Carolina, published the press
release without raising a single question about its validity.
Even one of the major press associations rewrote the press
release only slightly, and distributed it to hundreds of news
papers across the country —never bothering to wonder about
the basis for such an obvious political attack, let alone the
m issues involved.
" The outfit calls itself "Bread for the World," and its
press release accused several Senators and Representatives
of "voting so consistently against hungry people, both herfi
and abroad." The press release added, "It's hard to beiieve
j that U. S. voters, if they know the record, would not think
,1 twice before returning these people to office."
s How's that for a last-minute political attack, just before
y an election?
n DISCLOSURE —There was no hint in the press release
as to the identity of this so-called "Bread for the World"
outfit. No mention was made, for example, that it is headed
[1 by a man named Eugene Carson Blake, generally regarded as
one of the most politically activist clergymen in the country.
Dr. Blake is a former leader of the World Council of
Churches. Over the years, his advocacies have embraced
almost every ultra-liberal proposal that has come up. Let me
quickly add that Dr. Blake is entitled to his views, but he is
subject to question when he uses a vague press release, issued
just before an election, to attack those with whom he disagrees.
ISSUES—Dr. Blake's so-called "Bread for the World"
press release did not list the issues on which it based its
, "ratings" of Members of Congress. It simply singled out
> Senators and Representatives who,’ for example, have been
raising questions about the waste and discovered
in the food Itamp program. These same Congressmen have
objected to spending hundreds of millions of dollars of the
American taxpayers' money to send grain to subsidize com
„ munist and socialist governments abroad.
I lam one whom Dr. Blake's outfit criticized. So is
Senator Goldwater. I hope I continue to merit Dr. Blake's
criticism, because I .contend that American tax dollars ooght !
not to be used to subsidize communist tyrants around the
world. Much of the grain and other foods which American
taxpayers are sending abroad does not go to hungry people—
it goes to dictatorships which deliver the food only to people
, who happen to have the money to pay for it. The hungry
citizens in those countries are out of luck if they have no
money. To illustrate how the system operates, there is at
least one foreign government that derives 80 per cent of its
income by selling —to its own people—the food sent to them
by our country, paid for by the American taxpayers who
are being led to believe that we are helping the poor, starving
people of other lands.
I would emphasize that there is nothing unlawful about
Dr. Blake's attempt to propagandize the American people.
Still, it is clearly a blatant political activity—one that is
counting on the news media to ask no questions.
And in this instance, too many didn't.
