In a letter to M,iss Thomson, Somon Katz, dean of the col- lege of arts and sciences at the Univers}ty, said, "I should like to extend ,to you my warm corgratulations upon your fine record o scholastic achievement during this aca- demic year al the University of Wasngton. "The success with whioh you have met the many challenges of college life is graifyirng to those of us to whom your in- tellectual development has beeles'!WmSd 'nd oh n ;:u: and your paren.ts may vmw with ju,tifia.ble pride.

The meeting attracted one of the largestif not the largest turnouts in recent years. A total of 76 signed the guest book for the Garden Springs hosted meehng. A large de,legation from Cheney made the trip to join with arden Springs residents. Dr. Richard C. Langton, s- perin!teMent, saying the ad- ministration is sheoding for opening a new high school the fall semester of 1968, reviewed enrollment projections and building costs. This fall a total of 2,241 stu- dents were enrolled in kinder- garten'gh grade 12 threuglmu,t the 4tsti.'et. By 1968 the figure is expected t0 climb to 2,702, based on the Colmrt-Survival projection sys- tem. A new building program, using the preserrt !high school in uture phns, is expected to cost in the neighbarlmod of $1 million, inltdJng s0ate and district funds through bordirrg arrd levies. In order to ,hold a school election in May, a decision to do so must be made 45,days ia advance of such an election, meaning the directors will need to make. such an an- nouncement in April, if such a decision is made. The same general line of discussion on just how to sell such a building program to the public was evident again, quest for a delay. A sharp ex- change of comme,nts was cur- tailed when Dr. Langon asked Mrs. Mumaw to refrain, from making a puhtic statement on ,her reason "if it involves per- sormties." Ethics Adopted Prir 0 the ace(m, 'the di- rectors announced Eey hd ,adopted a code of ethics, which were made public. Anmng the items listed were: 1.

However, a l'arge percentage of 'these overseas sales are nade in conjunction with the )revisions of Public Law 580, with m,ot wheat pureh, ases paid for ia.foreigr, currencies. Of the many Nor East and Asian markets developed by WWA only Japan is a signifi- cant cash dollar customer. Nationally sponsored for- eign aid programs may not continue .indefinitely, Moos cationed; rd Washington wheat growers must be %tally coneeT,e,d in obtainhn,g a share of ,the keenly coml)etitive cash wheat sales in the wortd mar- ket. Currerrt negoti,tions for wheat sales to Russia have pointed up the many difficul- ties U. S. wheat growers ace fin meeting internatnal cmn- peti,tion, particularly from the natios of Can,aria and Austra- lia Who are aggressively seek- ing a larger share of cash Wheat sales. These problems are far- reaching and complex and will demand a great deal of effort from all those concerned with the wheat industry before so- lu,tions are obtained, Moos said. The government is studying the situation in 'an effort to brirtg our U. S. system into better compe'tve pesitio with the governme dominat- ed programs of our competi- tors. .Shipping restrictions on sales to both friendly and Oommunit Bloc nations, .lar- gely supported by U. S. labor unions, have been spotlighted as a result ,of the Russian ne- g.ti'ations. Presen,t U. S. poli- cies restrict shiplng of w'heai to Communist countries to a! point where it becomes eco- omieaUy impractical. Transportation c,ots within the U. S. are much higher than in Canada, Posing - afroher problem in meeting competi- tion from our neighbor to the nor. Because of built-in ail freight subsidies, w'ha,t can be shipped for 17 cents a bushel in Canada, while it would cost from 43 ,to 80 cents for comparable distances in the. U. S. U. S. credit restric- tions also place wheat growers at a disadvartage in seeking forgn cash sales, Moos said. Comparison Made The Crmd:mn Wheat Board permits sales with 10% down and five years on ,the balance, whale wheat sold 'in the U. S. ears for cash or sho terms of six months or less. Oanada also cenacts for wheat deliv- eries broad three years i,r ad- vance, guaranteeing a measure of security to its wheat grow- ers. Moos ats0 noted that Canada and Atstralia negia,te their wheat sales without consulta- ion with the U. S., while American policy in mkirg P. L. 480 sales, cars for consul- taon with friendly nations to in,sure their wheat economy is not upset. n both 0anada and Austra- lia, govermnets have urged growers to plane all available acreage to wheat to meet the cash orders ,being taken from Russia, Red China, India, Europe and other major eon- sumeff. Wheat growers in both coun- tries thds past year enjoyed a record in prodcUdnn,  in- come. Hurting Area Farmers "These aggressive wheat programs by Canada and Aus- tralia are resulting i the loss of hard dollar sales to Wash- ington and all U. S. wheat- men," Moos said. "It is obvi- otis that greaer effort must be put forth now to keep or wheat growers from falling years behind in .the iatexna. floral " " " competion. "It is vital that we attc a share of  growing world wheat pureae in th ,open market, res-Ating in a Sme4.ce:.aeurnn,Wu  foreign aid programs."
