We considerable flood We are prone to give most of the credit for flood control to the Corps of Engineers but our own farmers receive much credit for their conservation practices which slow the water runoff. A drive through the country Monday morning revealed many miles of terraces which held back much of the water, thousands of farm ponds which had to be filled before any water reached the creeks and rivers and conservation tillage methods which reduced soft erosion. It is after a rain like the one this week that we can easily see the benefits of soil and water conservation.

Because that auspicious occasion is forthcoming, it's ap- propriate to ask: Whatever happened to the UN? What have those fellows down by the East River in New York been doing lately? The answer comes just as quickly: Not much of anything and what they have been doing is small comfort for anyone who really believes in a neutral international peace-keeping organization. Take. for examvle, the current hot spots around the globe: Cambodia, the remnants of the Vietnam war and the always edgy Middle East. There's still a little shooting going on out in Southeast Asia. But the United Nations, envisioned as an organization which could settle these kinds of disputes peacefully, hasn't done anything effective. In fact, if the U.S. diplomats were paid on a "piece rate" basis-on results achieved-- they'd probably have to apply for welfare instead of living it up on the tax-free salaries they receive. Somehow, the dream of talking away international conflicts doesn't work when one side insists on shooting instead of talking and won't agree to have any outside referees settling boundary disputes. Although the United States has paid between 25 to 40 percent of the cost of the United Nations since it was organized, the U.N. has had a curious double-standard on international events. Most of the time, it's an anti-American view. Sometimes, it's just an unfair approach. And usually, the U.N. can find ways of being more neutral in favor of the side that's hostile to the United States or its allies. Israel is the latest victim of the UN's double-standard. After several days of debating the issue, the Security Council con- damned Israel for violating various agreements. This verbal slap was the result of Israel's forcing down an Iraqui airliner, apparently because the Israelis thought an Arab guerrilla leader was aboard. (He wasn't). No one was killed and the airliner landed safely. But there were angry words at the UN headquarters. Israel was denounced and condemned formally. The resolution didn't call for U.N. "sanctions" against Israel because if it had, the United States might have used its veto power-as the Soviet Union has done so often in defense of international terrorism or agression by Communist countries or their allies. Now, intercepting airliners from other countries is a serious we do with waste engine into the tank. The company serves an area in business.

He says a world-wide shortage of food will come by 1980. Everett E. Peterson, a University of Nebraska economist warns that lower prices are just around the corner. Peterson said the large exports of U.S. wheat were caused by large crop failures in several countries including the USSR, India and China. He discounts the assertion that the People's Republic of China and the USSR were closed markets for the U.S. wheat farmer and thus they make today's market different than in the late 1960's. Petersen says they both bought wheat from Canada, France and Australia which meant less competition for the U.S. in selling wheat to Japan and Western Europe. to some analysis high as $7-$10 per bushel. tend to follow.
