Page 4 College Station, Texas Tuesday, February 13, 1968 THE BATTALION Valentines To Take Six Cents This Year Fk NFO Withholds Meat From Sale DES MOINES, Iowa 6*>)—A 35- state grain market boycott by the National Farmers Organiza tion was extended to meat Mon day in the second phase of an all-commodity withholding action aimed at boosting prices. The meat embargo was called one month after the NFO in structed its members to hold corn, oats, wheat, rye, soybeans and sorghums off the market until prices reached predetermined levels. THE FINAL PHASE of the action, a milk sales boycott, is planned at an as yet unscheduled date, said NFO president Oren Lee Staley. The organization urged its members to hold cattle, hogs and sheep from packing houses until prices rise as much as six cents a pound. “WE’RE PREPARED to hold whatever time it takes,” said Staley. “How long the action lasts will depend on the desire of the packing industry to fight.” The militant farmer group wants cattle prices increased from 26 to 32 cents per pound, hog prices up from 19 to 23 cents and sheep from 23 to 29 cents. Staley said members would of fer contracts only to those meat packers “willing to sign and pay the price.” Pentagon Studies Weapons Against Hostile Satellites WASHINGTON OP)—-The Pen tagon said Monday it has been studying various new ways to destroy hostile satellites but “no decision has been made to develop a new weapons system” against them. The Washington Post reported earlier the United States had de cided to develop a weapon to knock down enemy satellites. The satellite threat got fresh attention late last year when Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara disclosed the Soviet Union was developing a fractional orbitual bombardment system FOBS. FOBS actually is a satellite- type bomb which is launched in to sub-orbit and then is ordered to descend to earth before com pleting a full circuit of the earth.

Streets are jammed by cars with no place to go. Italy’s priceless art and libraries are ravaged by floods. This is the way the world is, but it’s not the way it has to be. Air pollu tion can be prevented. Better transportation can be devised. Something can even be done about the weather. Many people at General Electric are already working on these problems, but we need more. We need help from young engineers and ientists; and we need help from business and ieral arts graduates who understand people and eir problems. If you want to help solve important oblems, we’d like to talk to you. We’ll be visiting mpus soon. Drop by the placement office and range for an interview.
