Winter Wheat Lower CHICAGO, June 3 —/P— Winter wheat brought the lowest price since it has been planted for the second straight day on the Board of Trade today. Wheat sold off early, both the July and September contracts, which represent the winter wheat crop/going to new seasonal lows at the start. A slight rally developed but it was followed by another slump toward the finish, sending prices down to new lows for the day. While new low ground was reached, the actual price lose today was not unduly large. It did not compare with yesterday's drop. The brilliant outlook for the new crop, now being harvested, again was the main influence in the sell-off. Other cereals also were mostly lower. July oats touched a new seasonal low. Soybeans at tim^s advanced against the general market, but did not get far on the upside. Produce Prices At St. Louis ST. LOUIS.

A long steel strike could be a big factor in deciding. The defense program has been reported — both by industrialists 3.14 and by the military—as lagging behind schedule (and behind Russian military production). The American armament program Is now on the threshold of what has been billed as its big step forward—tooling nearly done and volume production in the offing. But only if steel is available. That Is why the government immediately froze all steel stocks to end sales for civilian use. Inventories High Steelmen feel that the civilian industries have steel Inventories high enough to get by for two or three weeks. After that, if the strike continues, plant shutdowns and worker layoffs might become Jdn.

Upper Alton Alton Herd Still Tops The dairy herd at the Alton State hospital farm again leads 11 other state institution farms in butter !at content percentage. In the first six months of this year the herd has produced a 220- pound average per head which places it two pounds above the average for a similar period last year when the herd was judged the best producer among welfare and safety instiuttion farms in the state. The winning percentage per cow last year was 428 pounds and it marked the first time a welfare institution pf Illinois took the honor. Dairy farmer O. N. Gillespie, of the Alton State hospital farm, attributes the improved producing averages to better pasturing methods and the installation of a milking parlor. The latter is a hygienic, stone building where cows are milked six at a time. At present it takes about two hours to milk the 81 producing cowe. Including calves and other non- producers the herd now numbers about 167. It is producing some 390 gallons of whole milk a day, much of which is used by the 2500 patients and employes of the institutions. , Gillespie said the herd has been changed over to the summer schedule which means it is allowed to pasture all night and is brought in for milRing at 4 a. m., turned back to pasture and herded back, at noon for feeding, wash up and the last milking of the day at 3 p. m. 20 Attend Birthday Party Twenty guests attended a party honoring the first birthday of Teresa Rallo, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Rallo of 1520 Spaulding avenue, at her home Saturday night.

The stnei supply situation is much better, however, than it was at the start of the year. Production in the first four months of this year was at an annual rate of }05 1-2 million tons, a record. At the same time demand for steel was easing noticeably. SteeJmen have been predicting that by fall demand and supply would be In full balance, and by the end of the year supply would exceed demand. That time-table corn plant would grow. i Consumers aren't likely to run into shortages at their stores or dealers. Most things made of steel which civilians buy are in abundant supply—in the stores, in the warehouses, in Uie factory storerooms.

Troop 19 on All-Night Camp Boy Scout Troop 19 of the Main Street Methodist Church went on an all-night camping trip to Camp Warren Levis on the Jerseyville road over the past weekend. Scoutmaster Orville Carlton said 14 Scouts took part and it was the first such trip for many of them. The troop left Saturday morning and returned Sunday. On the first day in camp all the scouts passed tests in bird study, nature study, hiking and individual cooking. The most popular attraction was boating on the lake. Scoutmaster Carlton said there was only one boat and the boys had to use it in shifts, six at a time, so the boat was in use almost constantly. The Scouts were taken to the camp in automobiles driven by Carlton, Mrs. Urban Gubser and Mrs. George Lammers, Saturday, night, Scoutmaster Carlton was aided by Assistant Scoutmaster Freddie Schultz of troop 57. The Scouts attended Sunday school which was held in front of their cabin and conducted by Urban Gubser and John Waggoner. Boys who took part in the camping trip were David Ronano, Bill Pelot, Don Gubser, George Lammers, Dannie Travis, Richard Carlton, Everett Jefferson, Jim Walker, Merlin Graves, Jim Coleman, Ray Elfgen, Lynn Simms, Dennis Maggos and Larry Mann.

The group returned to St. Louis on the "Ann Rutledge" streamliner. "Tar Alley" Weather Commencement exercises a t Shurtleff College brought many old-timers together in Upper Alton, which meant there were lots of stories to be told. One yarn that came out of the reminiscences of E. J. McPhillips of 2511A College avenue and Warren W. Sti/fle of Amhurst, Mass., concerned the beginning of "Tar Alley." The sveath- er todfiy is perfect to recount the story. Residents of Leverett avenue may not know it, but in the minds of many old-timers they are living on "Tar Alley." Years ago the street was known by no other name and was so christened when paved with asphalt about 1915 and the first heat wave arrived. Asphalt then was still far from perfect and on days when the temperature flicked toward the 90's, it was worth your mild disposition and a pair of shoes to step out on Leverett avenue and get stuck in the tar. Hence the name "Tar Alley." One resident of the street, who may remember the nick-name, is Mrs. Roy Blair, of 3103 Leverett, the sister of Stiffle. The.latter was present at the commencement exercises to receive an honorary degree. Leverett avenue today is brick paved, but the next time you heat- it called "Tar Alley," you'll know you are listening to someone who knew it when.

Eisenhowei said he never has been able to see how universal military training and selective service could go hand In hand. But he declared that "UMT Isn't all sacrifice," adding It gives a man a chance to survive—through the training it offers-if he Is called upon to ffght. That was In response to H question whether he considers UMT vital. Eisenhower said, as he has bo- fore, that he believes the adoption of a UMT program by this country would lessen the chances of war. He expressed the view that a deliberately provoked war at this time is not likely. Just freed from his assignment as supreme commander of western defense forces in Europe, Elsen- hower said: "If Europe fell Into the Communist orbit we would be very badly placed," the general said. He said the same situation would hold should the Communists con- quer'or subvert other areas of the world with which Western Europe has social, economi^ and political connections. He cited in this connection the importance of the Belgian Congo. If the Congo were lost, the general asserted, "I don't know what we would do." Reference to Uranium This was an obvious reference to the uranium resources of that African area. Eisenhower met with about 100 newsmen at the Pentagon a short time before retiring — at his own request — without pay from tha army he has served 37 years. Retirement left him free to campaign actively, if he wished, for the presidential nomination. He is leaving before nightfall for his home town of Abilene, Kans., and his first speech as a civilian since his name was entered in the GOP nomination contest. At least 50,000 of his admirers from all parts of the country are expected to flock to the little town of 7000 population for a big welcome which also will be a sendot'l for the general on the last phase ol the pre-convention , campaign for nominating votes. In a White House ceremony yesterday, President Truman pinned a fourth oak leaf cluster on 'the general's distinguished service medal. He called Eisenhower's job in building up western Europe's defenses "a monumental achievement without historical peacetime precedent." Eisenhower told the President he was "deeply touched and honored." Then he glanced at Mrs. Eisenhower and said: "I listened in vain for one name that should have been included'— that of my wife." Truman said with a smile; "1 agree with you and I'll insert it i( you say so." From the moment Eisenhowei receives his retirement orders from the army, he will be on,"In active status." The Pentagon disclosed las! night Eisenhosver asked on May 2? to be retired without pay; The request, made in a letter to Secretary of Defense Lovett, was granted the following day. An appropriations bill now pending in Congress carries a provision which would require the defense department to certify that retirement of an officer under 62 is (A) for the good of the service or (B) for reasons of personal hardship. Eisenhower is 61. No Certification Eisenhower wrote Lovett: "1 would not ask or want you to make any certification as is required by the current appropriations bill. "As you know, my name is directly involved in the national political campaign. There are a number of delegates already pledgeti to seek my nomination as the Republican presidential candidate and, in the normal course of events, I will be talking to some of these delegates prior to the national convention. As an officer on the retired list, I would feel free to engage in such meetings without any possible interpretation that I might be violating or embarrassing the government or the army in any way . • •" In retirement without pay, Eisenhower gives up salary and allowances totaling $19,542 under the military pay raise bill recently passed by Congress. The general will leave Washington late today to fly to Kansas City, Mo. He will go to Abilene next morning by train. Plans call for him to speak brief; ly at noon when a cornerstone will be laid for the Eisenhower museum which will house the general's vast collection of war trophies and souvenirs. t An afternoon parade will depict scenes from Eisenhower's life, At 5 p.m., cst, he will 'address the throng gathered to welcome him- The speech will be televised and radio-broadcast across the nation.
