Not much improvement in cream marketing is expected in the near future, according to agricultural economists h~om the North Central state colleges of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kan- sas studying ~the dairy marketing situation. The North Dakota Agri- cultural Experiment Station has jus~ pttblished a review of the re- gional report. Even though 187 million dollarg were received by these states in 1958 for milk and cream, dairying is still a sideline. Many farmers have stopped selling cream in re- cent years. Use of butter has ,been :~L in half during the pa.~t 20 years by butter substitutes- This reduction has been a severe blow to the Plains area farmers where dairying is largely butter produo~ion. The low price of cream has caused many to shift from dairying to crop and livestock pro- duction. Another problem faced l~ the farmers is a lack of markets for milk, except ,through the sale of cTean~ This will foroe many farm- ers to continue selling cream for some ~xae. QualRy standards for creani will probably became in- creasingly strict, the economists say, and farmers will need larger I herds with higher production per cow, to make cream production more effecient.

WARNS TAX MAN Many federal income tax.payers each year fail to account for income received during the preceding year from sorces not reported on their W-2 withholding tax certificates, District Director B. J. Rockwood, in- ternal revenue service, complains. "Sources of taxable Income." he pointed o u t, "include part-time work, dividends, tips or other gratui- ties, interest on saving accounts, and several other forms of income. '2~rofRs on the sale of real or personal property are subject to special rules and must be reported," he added. Some dividends, and certain other kinds of income need not be report- ed. Taxpayers should check care- fully against the instructlor~ booklet or appropria4e tax guide to deter- mine whether they should be re- ported, he said.

Records show there has beem a steady rise in gonorrhea incidence, especially since 1949, and that ainee 1956 the number of e~mes reported in the 15-19 age group has nearly 'tripled. The total for gonorrhea and syph- ilis cases reported in 1958 was 273. The figure skyrocketed to 541 in 1959. "Probably most of the youth in- fected had never heard of venereal disease, how it is transmitted, nor o,f its dreadful results if not given prompt and adequate medical treat- ment," he stated. Most common of the five vener- eal diseases are syphilis and gonor- rhea. Both are caught from people who have them. are spread by sex contact, are dangerous, and are cur- able with proper medical care, the state health official said. He re- marked also that the earlier the dis- ease is discovered, the easier the cure Self-treatment is dangerous, he cautioned. The new" 16 mm film is available for loaning to schools, education- al groups, clubs and other interest- ed gatherings. The health depart- ment will also provide pamphlets and other educational material upon request. Write to the State Health Department.
