It has had the opposite effect. In 1973 the year the Supreme Court legalized abortion there were 167,000 reported cases of chid abuse, 1983- 929,000, 1991 - 2.5 million. Plus the ultimate form of abuse - 36 million aborted. Abortion makes it easier for some to disregard the needs of others. CLASSIFIED ADS BRING QUICK RESULTS Page 8b INDEPENDENT "...

When it's springtime in Dakota, , We'll meet by our oak tree We I1 share nostalgic treasures, Our gems of memory. -Helen Svaren, Extension report John Cunni.gham, County Extension Director 839-2818 or 1-800-279-2818 MORE PLANT DIVERSITY NEEDED More plant diversity is needed to help avert a budding crisis in rural Minnesota, according to a 60-member task force on plant diversity consisting of farmers, agribusiness, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations. The task force is being coordinated by the Center for Alternative Plant and Animal Products and the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture at the University of Minnesota. "Our current agricultural cropping systems have less biological diversity than at anytime in history," the task force report-says. "The cause is continued simplification of farming leading to production of a few crops over large acreages. It is increasingly clear that simplified farming is causing a crisis in rural Minnesota. "This crisis is felt in rural communities that have lost population, businesses, churches, schools and social institutions as smaller diversified farms have been replaced by larger operations focused on a single commodity. Production of single, low value commodities does not add substantially to the economic base of the community and creates a high level of biological and environmental risk for farmers and society. "The crisis is felt by all citizens as our precious water resources are degraded by agricultural pollution and at-risk farmers are subsidized with tax dollars when crops fail to provide adequate returns to support the current system," the report says, and gives two examples: In the Red River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota, a scab epidemic associated with short rotations of wheat and barley monocultures has severely threatened the livelihood of farmers and rural percent of the land corn and soybea requires high chemicals, pesticides, which are dramatic proliferation pests such as soybean cyst root rots and wee( agricultural rivers and lakes degraded extremely resources. Southern now being asked cropping environmental modifying current greater economic puts rural Farmers need new meet these economic demands.
