Romans from Enid, was elected on December 31, 1974, to be the Presiding Judge for 1975 of Division I of the Courtof Appeals of the State of Oklahoma. The Court of Appeals has two divisions of three judges each. Division I is located at the State Capitol, and Division II is located at Tulsa. Each division operates indepen- dently of the other. The Court of Appeals handles civil cases on appeal that are assigned to the respective divisions by the Oklahoma Supreme Court. A decision of a division of the Court, when final, is not appealable to the Supreme Court. However, such decision may be reviewed by the Supreme Court when a majority of its justices direct that certiorari be granted. The backlog of civil cases on appeal has been reduced considerable since the Court of Appeals became operative on January 11, 1971. Judge Richard E. Romang practiced law for twenty-five years during which time he served twenty-two years as a State Representative and State Senator in the Oklahoma Legislature from Garfield County, before being elected to the Court of Appeals from the 6th Congressional District.

The U. S. balance of payments makes a real differ- ence to consumers. This "balance of payments" is the dollar difference between how much this nation buys from overseas and how much it sells overseas. To buy the things wanted from overseas, the U.S. has to sell overseas to get the money to buy. It's the same as in your personal finances; you have to have an income before you can buy. Nations have to sell to buy. s If you buy more than you make, you go in debt. The more debt you have, the shakier your finances are. After awhile, your credit isn't as good. The same applies to the United States. If the U.S. buys more overseas than it sells, it has a negative "balance of pay- ments." If that gets too big, the dollar gets "shaky" in the international market. After awhile, the dollar won't buy as much overseas. And foreign markets "lose faith" in the value of the dollar. When the value of the U.S. imports is greater than the value of the exports, the deficit saps the strength of the U.S. dollar in foreign markets. As the deficit grows, the value of the dollar weakens and it takes more dollars to buy foreign products. That creates problems for the American consumer. A favorable balance of payments makes more stable retail prices for the American consumer, says Dr. Houston Ward, extension economist at Oklahoma State University. balance of payments deficit in total U.S. trade into a $939 million favorable balance of payments. In 1972, U.S. overseas farm sales reduced a huge $7 billion deficit by 28 per cent. In 1973, agricultural exports made a recordbreaking contri- bution of $5.6 billion net to the balance of payment. The non-farm exports. non-agricultural sector turned in U.S. agricultural a $9.1 billion net. 1974 are expected to billion, sharply of $12.9 billion set Between 1963 and 1973, Much of the agricultural exports have con- from higher world tributed $22.9 billion to the the volume of farm nation's balance of payments -- exceeded the 1973 roughly S times greater than the million short tons.
