From left to right in back row: Their trip was sponsored by theHeinrich Wehrli, Brunner Albert Great Plains Wimat Market Develop- Walter, of the delegatioN, Walter H. Problems with agricultur:fi sur-duced in excess of our needs during pluses might have been preventedand after World War II, we would if the nation had lavished as much be living in a world quite different care on marketing of farm products from the one we live in today as it did on producing them. ~o said Clifford R. IIope, president of the Great Plains Wheat Market Development Assn at a meeting of the American Marketing Assn The Great Plains Assn. is com- posed of state wheat agencms and producer groups from Nebraska. Kansas and Colorado. Oklahoma has just announced. ~ffiliation with the association. The North Dakota State Wheat Commission voted June 6 to affiliate with Great Plains Assn. for one year with certain stipulations. Ac- ceptance of the affiliation is con- tingent upon the Great Plains group's approval of the application and its stipulations. Hope said the revolution in farm 10roduction was aided by massive research and education programs sponsored and carried out by agen- cies of the U. S. department of agri- culture and the land grant colleges. "These programs were created to bring about more efficient farming, and they succeeded hand-~on,ely. "But the insignificant attention given to marketing reflects not only governmental but nat:onai neglect of one of the most important aspects of agriculture," he said. "If we had equalized our efforts in producing and marketing, we mi2ht have a- voided most of the ~urplus problems which have plagued ti~e nation dur- ing the past 40 years." Hope took issue with those who claim that surpluses have harmed th eantion. "At their worst, surpluses are only too much of a good thing," he said. "If American farmers had not pro- and one considerably less to our liking." Gains in farm production also generated a higher standard of liv- ing. Consumers today are getting more and better food. Yet in 1959, t only 20.7 percent of their disposable income went for food. This compares with 23.1 percent in 1935-39:22.9 percent in 1950: and 22.4 in 1954. During the next 10 years. Hope move into higher economic brackets. There will be considerable change instandards of living, and in con-I sumption and purchasing habits. "There will be tough competition for the increases in consumers' dis- posable income. Unless agriculture makes a fight for these new dollars. it will fail to get its full share of them. "We should not place nil of the responsibility for solving market- ing problems in government hands," Hope added. "I feel that farmers themselves should take part in mar- ket development programs, either on their own or in cooperation with procesors and distributors. '`Through educational and promo- tional programs, producers can help bring about changes in consumer buying habits. Also. they can do much to direct our marketing effort toward overseas markets." Hope is head of the Great Plains Wheat Market Develiopment Assn a regional organization formed by wheat grower associations and com- missions in Kansas, Colorado, and Nebraska. The association's activi- ties are financed by a levy on wheat ,as it enters commercial channels in the three states.

It is not, however, a meeting to consider the distribution or allo- cation of federal funds to individual eligible projects, he stressed. The session will get underway at 9:30 a.m. in Room G-I of the State Capitol. Haslerud said the primary pur- pose of the public meeting is to consider the proposed basic poli- cies and priority principles to be incorporated in the 1961 North D~kota state plan for hosptial and medical facilities construct- ion. The state plan, when approved by the surgeon general, constitutes the official guide for the utilization of anticipated federal funds.
