If the price falls below a certain level, this agency would be in a position to make deficiency payments based on the farms' basic cotton allotment and the acreage which was planted. Since no one can predict the weather conditions for the remaining part of the year, it would be advanta- geous to all cotton producers to have on record the total acreage planted to cotton which would make him eligible for disaster pay- ments in the event of yield loss. The ASCS office cannot emphasize enough that neither of the above provisions will be available, if a prodieer does not timely report acreage. Foster families for Macon County children who need homes are urgently needed, and the Macon County Department of Pensions and Security is now actively seeking families for the program, Macon County Director Darlene Collins said. The foster families are needed to care for children who, because of a number of reasons--neglect, desertion, family illness or other conditions--are no longer able to live in their own homes. "We need families of all kinds," said Ms. Collflns. "We need black families and white families, families who live in the city and families who live in the country, but most of all we need families who like children and want to take care of them." She added that the ages of the children range from infants to older children. The Department of Pen- sions and Security may ask approved families to take in a child for a short period of time, or just until a family problem can be settlad, or Mrs. Collins added that foster family homes must meet reasonable require- ments in order to qualify for the program. The home, of course, must be safe and healthy, and there must be enough room in the house for the extra child. "And obviously," said Ms, Collins, '~the foster parents we n.eed are those with the ability and desire to make a child feel wanted and at home in an unfamiliar environment." Fearer families are paid a The CAP Ageney in Macon County has been awarded $174,970 in three separate grant actions.

She pointed out that, in many cases, the Department of Pensions and Security must be able to find a home for a child on short notice. For example, in cases at child abuse a ehfld might suffer severe physical harm if he remains with his family even overnight. Because of this, she Said, the depart- ment must have suitable approved foster homes ready to take them in. Foster parents are needed especially to work with children with specialized needs i.e. handicapped children, children with cereba] palsy, rheumatoid arthritis and the emotionally disturbed.
