Burger says there is an urgent need to curb the rapid caseload expansion that has faced the Supreme Court in recent years. Despite his statement Sunday, Burger stopped short of endorsing proposals for a national court of appeals that would weed out cases now going to the Supreme Court. A study commission appointed by Burger and headed by Harvard Law School Professor Paul A. Freund suggested a seven-judge national court of appeals to screen out 90 per cent of the cases that reach the Supreme Court. Variations of the same proposal have been made by the Advisory Council for Appellate Justice and a committee of the American Bar Association. Burger often has expressed concern over the mounting court caseload during his five years as chief judge. His latest statement comes after presiding over the weeding out of a record number of cases in the week-long conference with which the court opens its annual term. The conference considers matters that have piled up during the summer recess. This year there were 1,011, the first time the number has exceeded 1,000. The court passed on 809 requests to consider cases, 76 appeals, 78 motions and 48 peti- Obituaries ANTHONY PIERCE Anthony Pierce of St. Louis, Mo., formerly of Hope, died Wednesday, October 9.

"As a new term of hearings begins Tuesday we already have 90 cases scheduled to be heard, half a term's work without even drawing from the list we have been going over during this past week," Burger said. "In the term ending July 25 of this year the court heard arguments in 170 cases." Most court members have been noncommittal on suggestions for screening of cases, but Justices William J. Brennan and William 0. Douglas have expressed opposition to the idea. Douglas says the court does not have enough work to do. Nursing workshop Wednesday Nursing personnel from a ten- county area in Southwest Arkansas are expected in Texarkana Wednesday, for a workshop.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Drought relief in parts of the Great Plains and a switch from corn and other crops in some slates may boost winter wheat plantings 3 to 5 per cent from last year, says an official of the Nalional Associalion of Wheat Growers. "Bui that doesn'l necessarily mean lolal grain production will go up next year," says Jerry Rees, executive vice presi- denl of Ihe association. "It possibly could mean a decline." Rees said Ihere is indication that many farmers who had severe corn losses from drought last summer are planting winter wheat Ihis fall. Also, some sorghum producers in the southwest appear to be doing likewise. Thus, because wheat is lower- yielding than corn and sorghums, Ihe net grain output from those converted acreages could be down sharply. Initially, Rees said in an interview, Ihe association last August surveyed members and found they probably would not increase winter wheat plantings ihis fall. But effects of the drought became more apparent laler and lhat probably caused much of the switching. Rees said winter wheat seeding in Oklahoma and Texas appears lo be up from last year because of improved soil moisture conditions. Also, he said, wheat seems to be popular in eastern Nebraska and parts of Kansas where drought-damaged corn was cut for silage. But in parl of western Kansas, Colorado and a big section of Washington state, dry weather has delayed winter wheat seeding. There is still time, Rees said, if those areas get adequate moisture. Tolal wheat production this year was estimaled last week by the Agriculture Department at a record 1.78 billion bushels. Thai included 1.39 billion of winter wheat. The lolal wheal output this year was up four per cent from 1973, with all of the gain regis- teed by the winter type. Durum and other wheal planted in the spring declined from 1973 production.

The Israeli-backed strategy also won the support of Saudi Arabia's King Faisal during Kissinger's brief stopover Sunday in Riyadh en route from Israel to Egypt. The American secretary arrived in Cairo Sunday night and held a post-midnight meeting with Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy before talking to Sadat today. The reaction to the proposals Kissinger brought from Israel was not disclosed. Newsweek magazine reported that on the Egyptian front the Israelis are talking of withdrawing 31 miles from present disengagement lines if Egypt indicates willingness to end the 26-year state of belligerency. But Egypt reportedly wants a bigger pullback. War Minister Ahmed Ismail warned Sunday that Egypt was prepared to resume fighting if Israel refuses to withdraw from Arab lands. Such threats have been common since the October war. In its crop report issued Oct. 10. USDA said winter wheat plan ling for nexl year's harvest made "fair progress" last month allhough heavy rains delayed field operalions in Texas. "On Ocl. 1 in the southern Great Plains soil moisture supplies were plentiful in much of Texas, adequate to surplus in Oklahoma, and mostly adequate in Kansas," the report said. "Dry conditions cover much of Nebraska, South Da- kola and North Dakota." By Oct. 1, the report said, winter wheat planting was "well ahead of normal" in Kansas with aboul 60 per cent of Ihe crop seeded against only 35 per cent a year ago and 50 per cent normally on the date. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Agriculture Department said today Ihe Republica of China, Taiwan, is developing into one of the largest export markets for American farmers. "This is especially true for wheal, corn, barley, cotton, soybeans and tobacco—com- modilies aided by strong demand, domestic crops in- sufficienl to meet growing needs, and rising incomes," the department's Foreign Agricul- tureal Service said. In the fiscal year ended last June 30, about $518 million worth of U.S. farm products was shipped to Taiwan, more lhan double Ihe value in the previous year, the report said. WASHINGTON (AP) - Farm production of red clover seed is expecled lo be up three per cent from 1973 this year to an eslimaled 30.9 million pounds, says Ihe Agriculture Depart- menl. Illinois, Ihe largest producer, is expected to have about 6.4 million pounds, up from less than 4.3 million last year, says Ihe deparlment's Crop Reporting Board. Gains from last year also are expected in Indiana and Ohio, but seed output will be down in Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri and Oregon, officials said.
