But at 3 Of January 26, Was Among Most Intense Ever In County The thunderstorm which swept across Jefferson County and this section about 2 a.m. Thursday, January 26, was rated by the U.S. Weather service as one of the most intense storms of modern times. Laurence Lloyd, local weather observer, said the storm was such a large one and extended over so much territory. He said never in the history of this county and this area, has such a low barometer reading been recorded. He said he noted the barometer was falling rapidly about 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 25, and by midnight it had dropped to 29 inches of damaging proportions was moving just southwest of the county. By 1 a.m., Mr. Lloyd said he noted the barometer had dropped further to 28.91 inches and he said that would make any weather forecaster take a second look at the weather maps. By 2 a.m., the barometer had dropped even further to 28.86 which is a very dangerous level because this pressure is usually associated with coastal hurricanes. Then about 2:50 a.m., the mercury dropped again, this time to 28.72, and it was about then that the torrential rains thunder, lightning, and the high mercury, which of course in- dicated that a storm of experienced because of low grain prices", the vice president said.

Mr. Lloyd said while he did not see the winds go above the 60- mile per hour he recorded at his home, a reading of M-miles per hour was recorded in nearby Hagerstown, so it is reasonable to assume that they could have reached 70 to75 miles per hour in the Bakerton section of the county where considerable damage was reported to some homes, barns, trees and power and telephone lines. Of course, there was some property damage and some felled trees and power lines in other scat- tered parts of the county, but the heaviest blow from the big wind Harpers Ferry Job Corps and has been featured in a film on community relations by the Dept. of Labor.

"Establishing these target price levels is important for two reasons. First, it extends the principle of treating all producers of the major com- modities fairly and equitably. We are using the same com- ponefits of production costs for bal:ley and grain sorghum that the administration used in formulating wheat, corn, and Upland cotton program proposals to the Congress for the Food and Agriculture Act of 1977. Second, this action means that barley producers will receive deficiency payments at a rate of 50 cents per bushel, or payments nationally totalling approximately $208 million", the vice president said. Vice Presidnet Mondale also indicated that it will be March before the preliminary deter- mination on the deficiency payment rate for grain sorghum will be made. The final payment rate will be determined in April with payments to producers beginning soon thereafter. Early estimates are that the payment rate will be 35-40 cents per bushel with payments totaling $300-$325 million. "Coupled with the wheat deficiency payments of $1.2- billion, direct payments to grain producers this year will total approximately $1.7 billion. This should help the serious cash-flow problems, that farmers have t Den 2 -- 1st, R. B. Moler; 2rid, John Moreland; 3rd, Danny Mitchell.
