ZM-Z40S |OHN K GAIUtETT: 2847 Almost all of the ginseng grown in the U.S. is exported, and the big trading market is Hang Kong. From Hang Kong, ginseng is sold to traders in the People's Republic of China. Taiwan. North and South Korea. Japan, Singapore. and Hang Kong itself. According to the USDA report. there appears to be a scarcity of wild ginseng in the U.S. The report said this is because hmztez tend to dig roots too early in the season - before the berries on mature plants fall - and because too few plants are left for reproduction purposes. U.S. production of dried gmseng root has increased from about 160.000 pounds during 1960-62 to about 200,000 pounds during 1971-73. USDA said the average value of U.S. ginseng has increased from less than $18 a pound in 1960-62 to about $35 a pound in 1967-69 to $48 in 1973. USDA expects that most of the increased production of ginseng in future years will come from farms which specialize in raising the plant, since the supply of wild ginseng is apparently stable.

To be e igible, "the mortgagee must have notified the mortgagor in writing of his intention to foreclose: payments under the mortgage must have been delinquent for at least two months and both the mortgagor and mortgagee must have given appropriate notice of circumstances which make foreclosure probable. In addition, the homeowner must have incurred a substantial reduction in income as a result of involuntary unemployment or underemployment due to adverse economic conditions and be financially unable to make mortgage payments. Also. there must be a reasonable prospect that the homeowner will be able to resume mortgage payments. The property must be in the homeowner's principal residence and payments, which can include principal interest, taxes, ground rents, hazard insurance and mortgage insurance premiums, cannot exceed the amount determined to be reasonably neces- sary to supplement the amount the homeowner is capable ot contributin or $400, whichever is lesser. . Randolph said relief may be provided for up to a total of 36 months and interest does not begin to accrue until after tim final payment in behalf of the homeowner. Randolph said $750 million is authorized during a three-year period and that. with repayments and OWNI & O] EATOR leuck McCarty | Your Home Storm DoOrs, aluminum or white finLsh Safety Glass Storm Windows, aluminum or v te finish.
