PAGE 6 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27,1971 THE JOURNAL Australia Fruit Growers Look To American Markets TRAILER FRESH IN FROM SPAIN - A shipment of canned olives from Spain is not unusual, unless that shipment arrives in Philadelphia in the same trailer in which it left the Spanish olive groves. Such is the case above. A receiver at an Acme Markets warehouse prepares to unload a shipment of the firm's Ideal brand olives which was processed, packed, labeled and sealed in the above trailer in the Spanish town of Seville. Involved, of course, is a relatively new method of shiprlng known as \con- taineri'zation\. Loaded trailer bodies are transported throughout the world by truck, ship or plane. Merchandise is not rehandled until it arrives at final destination Method reduces shipping costs and helps ensure product quality. American Education Week Schedule Announced Here WASHINGTON (AP) - Fears of higher shipping costs for sending produce to the European market are causing Australia fruit growers to look more expectantly at U.S. consumers as potential buyers of apples and pears, the Agriculture Department said today. Australian apple production was a record 23.5 million bushels this year, and although pear output—at 8.2 million bushels— was down from the previous season it still was the second largest crop on record,, the Foreign Agricultural Service said. \Growers are worried, however, because their traditional export markets in Western Europe and the United Kingdom are weakening and are expected to decline even further when the U.K. enters the European Com- munity,\ the report said. , ; fl Also, the FAS said, growers are -Wrrf worried about proposed increases in •r.*vl shipping costs, estimated lo boost charges by 25 per cent. Thus, the report added, Australia growers are looking around for op- portunities to expand other markets. Apple shipments to the United States already are substantial, about 345,000 bushels this year, and pears for the American market totaled 485,000 bushels. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department says an annual income' tax educational . program sponsored by the Extension Service has extended far beyond those it im- mediately touches. Extension officials in the states set up the program for fall and winter months for\ farmers and professional tax con- sultants. Surveys show 20 states con- ducted schools and workshops last year, with an attendance of 13,085 persons. Those in turn were estimated to have prepared about 800,000 tax returns for farmers. - WASHINGTON (AP) — Broiler chickens and potatoes head the Agriculture Department's \plentiful foods\ lisl for December. Other items in seasonal abundance for the holiday season include apples, rice, fresh pears, cranberries, pork, turkey and eggs. The list is published each month to help call consumer attention to farm products in extra supply at food stores. WASHINGTON (AP). — Production of red clover seed this year is expected to total 44.4 million pounds, down 10 per cent from 1970 despite a sharp increase in Illinois, the leading producer. Clover acreage nationally was down in 1971 by 14 per cent, according to the Agriculture Department. Illinois re- ported 78,000' acres for seed harvest, compared with 81,000 last year. However, Illinois -yields went up, averaging 90 pounds per acre, compared with 80 in 1970. That meant total production increased in the state to more than seven million pounds, compared with less than 6.5 million in 1970, officials said. ocoooooooooeeeeoeooeeoooeeeeagoaeeooeoooeeeooeeeooooooooo* As part of the local program to ob- serve American Education Week, parents have been invited to visit the elementary schools this week according to the following schedule: Tuesday, Kennedy and Madill Wednesday, Sherman School Thursday, George Hall Elem. and Lincoln School Friday, Washington School Parents may stay for as brief or as long a period of time as they desire keeping in mind the procedures stated below. 1.
