(AP) - Protesting low cattle prices, farmers shot or slit the throats of 658 calves and buried the carcasses in trenches. "I'm tired of rhetoric, " said Steve Pavichn president of the National Farmers Organization in Wisconsin. "... There is a problem out here in rural America and something has to be done about it." "None of us like it," one farmer said. "But if they don't change soon they might as well shoot the American farmer and throw him in the pit." The farmer and Pavich spoke at a demonstration here Tuesday where 636 calves were killed by NFO members. Another 22 were slaughtered by members of the Buena Vista Beef Growers Association near Wisconsin Rapids, about 60 miles southeast of here. The farmers say the price of feed grain and other costs have jumped while veal prices have plummeted. Fanners were getting $90 to $125 a head for veal calves eight months ago, but are now receiving $17, according to Phil Broege, marketing dairy representative for the NFO in the Curtiss area. "You're paying about $2 a pound for veal in the store, but the farmer is getting 17 cents a pound for his animal," Broege said. "Everybody between the farer's driveway and the consumer is taking the rest." Broege said the NFO offered to turn the calves over to slaughterhouses at Edgar, Wis., and Dubuque, Iowa, if packers would distribute the meat to needy families. But the offer was turned down". The Rev. William Whitcomb, director of the Wisconsin Christian Rural Overseas Program, criticized the calf kill. He said the farmers could have held the animals off the market without waste by contributing them to charitable organizations. But Newell said part of the point was to slaughter female ^jves — to dramatize the need to cut down future production.

"The rescue operation will cease completely by this evening," said an Air Force spokesman at Clark Air Base, 50 miles north of Manila. "We have had no sightings." The spokesman said the six crewmen of the missing WC130 Hercules turbojet would be considered missing and not dead. The search over as much as 12,500 square miles of the South China Sea lasted four days, but the Air Force said it was being called off because of the approach of another storm. The spokesman said all but one search plane already had been recalled. According to the Philippine Weather Bureau, Tropical Storm Carmen was headed north toward central Luzon and Clark Air Base with center winds of about 70 miles an hour. Today, with radar, computers and other sophisticated devices, Flight Service Stations in the U.S. can keep in touch with 35,daily.
