Local Men Attended Two-Day State Farm Leaders Conference Secretary of Agriculture Earl L. Butz is not going to be satisfied until farmers earn returns on their labor and investments that measure up fully to what city people are making, a top U. S. Department of Agriculture offic- ial told some 200 federal farm program workers here Tuesday (April 4) evening. Seeley G. Lodwick, executive assistant to the administrator of USDA's Agricultural Stabilizat- ion and Conservation Service said, "Secretary Butz put it on the re- i cord just the other day, saying he is going all out to see that farm- ers get higher prices and higher net incomes, that farmers keep control of farming, and that young farmers and small farmers have a decent break."

Douglass blasted a new census proposal to change the definition of a farm. Under the change, a farm would be defined as one with a net in- come of $5,000 or of $10,000.

Mondloch, assistant to the director of the Conservat- ion and Land Use Programs Div- ision of ASCS, told the conferees, "We must think in terms of pro- viding cost sharing to solve those environmental problems that have an impact on the public."
