She suf- fered from a birth defect, a disorder which seriously af- flicts one out of every 16 babies born in the United States. When Linda was old enough to walk, she could get around only with the aid of steel braces on her legs. That meant treatment and study center. Linda began a series of sur. gical operations, treatments and exercises to strengthen the muscles she still had in her 'legs. Today she no longer needs the braces and can even ride a tricycle. Though she still uses crutches, the doctors at the Columbus center holm that she may $oon be able to wearing heavy, ankle - high abandon thexn.

Don Stevens, president of the Rust Prevention Association, told the commission that North Dakota has some of the top agriculture re- search personnel in the nation. "They have done an outstanding job," Stevens said, "but there aren't enough of them." Stevens said that the problem of agriculture research is not entire- ly appreciated by the public and legislators. He said that "budgets are often curtailed, meaning limited personnel and research." Over 14,000 varieties and lines of wheat are being screened in North Dakota, Stevens said, on the basis of genetics, rust resistance, yield, test wheat, baking and mixing quality. Commercial fertilizer now makes research into dwarf char- acteristies necessary so the growth goes into the head rather than the stem, Stevens said. Stevens recommended that North Dakota expand its growth chamber facilities, its graduate assistant pro- gram in research, and its research staff. He saJd tl~t "North l)aXota can sell every bushel It pro- duees if it maintains quallty." He cited the ~ In foreign nmrkets where quality wheat is In demaa& "Some of thd~ countries grow no wheat; others re growing it with- out getting t} quality desired," Stevens said.
