Study lesson is 'Between Thee and Me' People are used to practicing the piavt6, golf, football and tennis, but the idea of practicing human relations skills may be a new one. Just as in music and sports, expressing concern for others through seeing, hearing, sharing and caring takes practice in relating to others in both organized and informal situations. During October the Home Extension Clubs and other interested groups and organizations in Nuckolls County will be studying the lesson "Between Thee and Me," in order to help improve their own human relations skills. The lesson stresses learning to better understand one's self in order to understand others. The importance of caring about people and expressing concern for them will be discussed. The need to practice the skill of focusing on the strengths of others rather than on weakness will be emphasized. Leader training for Home Extension Clubs and other groups on the lesson will be held at 9:30 a.m. at Superior in the Security Bank Party Room and at 1:30 p.m. at Nelson in the 4-H Building on Sept. 27. Any organized club group may send leaders to the training.

When a dirty furnace filter robs you--it does it in more ways than one. It clogs the air circulation system in your furnace, deprives you of comfort, makes your entire heating system work harder, wastes valuable energy and money, too. It's energy enemy number one. Remember, the filter's sole purpose is to gather dust. Check it periodically. Replace it when necessary. Your furnace will provide more com- fort and use less energy. For more energy-saving informa- tion, call or write our nearest office right away. OAS SERVICE COMPANY To set the record straight over fertilizer supply FIRST: Our production facilities are running at a maximum rate -- limited, however, by power outages in Florida and gas shortages. These are serious problems over which the producers have no control. On, gas, we have urged the U.S. government to establish a high-use priority for fertilizer production, but thus far they are deaf. SECOND: Total U.S. exports of all materials for the first seven months of ]973 rose only 2 per cent. Imports rose ]0 per cent during the same period. THIRD: We have not shorted the American farmer this past season but in fact the industry has increased deliveries by 5 per cent. FOU RTH: Our government has released substantial reserve acreage back into production without any consultation with our industry officials. FIFTH: When grain prices double or triple, as they have in ]973, the demand for fertilizer in the wheat belt has literally exploded. A tremendous new market opened right at the time when the industry was least able to supply it. SIXTH: For nearly two years we have been unable fo get the Ad- ministration to recognize that the profits allowed the industry under Phases I, II, III were woefully inadequate to get new plants and facilities built for a growing market. For five years no substantial additional capacity came on sir:earn. There have been no real profits for the producer and under the new Phase IV regulations the situation prevails, except in exports. SEVENTH: It would appear that the American farmer, our customer; is going to be encouraged to maximum production for as long as we can foresee. Additional U.S. fertilizer capacity, then, is a must. Phase IV regulations discourage forward planning and capacity by our industry because of the con- tinued likelihood of no or low profit on domestic business. EIGHTH: It is an error to believe increased domestic fertilizer prices will discourage further consumption. Profitable farmers await additional machinery, fertilizer, fuel, and pesticides with open arms. NINTH: Even if ammonia prices doubled at the farm gate, the price per ton would rise only $6.00 over ]950 prices. On the other hand, failure fo fertilize corn would raise the price to consumers measured in dollars. WHAT MUST BE DONE? FIRST, every farmer, every retailer should wire or write the Cost of Living Council Director, Dr. John Dunlop and Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz, urging immediate decontrol of American fertilizer. This would not only stem future increased exports and encourage fertilizer imports, but, most im- portant, would give the green light for industry production expansion. Expansion we must have if we are going to meet the mid and late ]970's domestic requirements. SECOND, our farmers must store as much material this fall, winter and next spring on farm as possible. THIRD, farmers and retailers must work as a team to place early orders well into 1974, so producers may know of their needs. FOURTH, transportation is a maior consideration. Barge, pipeline, and truck must be considered now as alternatives to a rail system already clogged with wheat shipments. With record soybean, corn and milo crops in the offing a chaotic situation is at hand. FIFTH, producers and retailers must closely align their marketing ac- tivities, else the results will be disastrous. So, write, or wire the Cost of Living Council Director, Dr. John Dunlop or Earl Butz immediately. Highway 8 East Superior,
