The show cause order, issued by Justice Jacob Ark, is returnable Tuesday, Nov. 24, in Special Term of State Supreme Court. The city maintained that use of the special census figures of last April was illegal under state law. It said this deprived the city of due if the decennial census figures had been followed.

Ambassador Adlai Stevenson fields questions from newsmen, above, as host Sol Lino- Adlai Sees U.N. 'No to Red China In a petition to the court, Homer said the special census was "not only unauthorized by the city, but distribution of the sales tax according to its population figures is illegal." City Hall previously had protested the city was net By BEN TEPLITZ Monroe County's turkeys are getting fatter and fewer. Tom's extinction here is hastened by the crucible of competition, rather than the chopping block. Surprisingly, torn turkeys here after World War II were virtually uncountable. But today the Monroe County flock is estimated at somewhat under 5,000, supplying barely one per cent of local Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts.

Although dwindling, the Monroe County torn is very much a prime bird, with appeal to the epicure and a price to match. He's pampered and lazy. His feet never touch ground. rnh-tA in vnicaA rrr fni civ mnnthc Kofnro Vic Webster, said three neighboring competitors gave up the business in the past few years. Kehrig, who expects to sell 1,400 turkeys for the coming holidays, said, "Every year the breed of bird improves, but the price stays unchanged.

The housewife gets more meat and less bone on the table, but the farmer gets less money in his pocket. Competition is really rough and without connoisseurs willing to buy high-grade turkeys right at the farm we'd all be out business. Wholesaling turkeys is just impossible at today's offered price." There reportedly are only five turkey growers of size in the county. Fifteen years ago there "easily were 40 farmers and each probably had more birds than the largest grower today," according to Kirkwood Personius of the Monroe County Extension Service. "New York State was once big in turkey production," Personius said, "giving Monroe County significance, too.

But the turkey empires of today are large western ranches instead of small eastern farms. With wholesale turkey prices basically unchanged for six or seven years, laiRe-scale ranching is the only way to overcome thin profits. "It's very likely that a new turkey farm in Monroe County won't be established in the next 10 years. It's still more likely that in the same decade 100 per cent of all holiday turkeys eaten here will be raised elsewhere." consulted when the Board of Supervisors ordered and paid for the special census.

Here for Xerox Dedication Stevenson, former Illinois governor and twice Democratic candidate for the presidency, was in Rochester to speak at a dinner in the Sheraton Hotel cuminating two days of ceremonies marking the dedication of Xerox new $7 million research and engineering center in Webster. At a press conference at Rochester-Monroe County Airport, the ambassador also laid to rest speculation that the recent victory of the labor party in Britain would mean "a harder push" by that country to admit Communist China to the U.N. Stevenson said he expected Britain to continue advocating seating the Peking government, but didn't expect the British delegation to be any more active in that area than in past years.

Elaborates on Statements He said the Chinese situation would remain unchanged and Nationalist China would continue to hold its seat this year. The General Assembly opens next month. For the first time, he also elaborated on statements attributed to him and to President Johnson that the deadlock over financing U.N. peacekeeping activities could be resolved in "any number of possible ways consistent with the U.N. charter." He suggested that perhaps the Soviet refusal to pay $52.6 million it owes for the Congo and Middle East U.N.

operations could be solved by setting up a voluntary payment system. "It is perhaps the greatest problem the U.N. ever had. We can only hope and pray that the Russians and others (Ukraine and Byelorussia) will conclude it would be better to make some payment rather than avoid confrontation. Then we could sit down and negotiate." Stevenson, considered one of the most articulate and witty liberal leaders in the country, didn't disapopint the crowd waiting to greet him at the airport.

Santa Claus School, of Albion, defaulted yesterday in answering an $892.05 judgment for Christmas toys. In an affidavit that accompanied the request for a show case order, Homer asserted than any distribution of taxes on the April, 1964, basis would cause "irreparable injury." If the city wins its case, the towns, which received more money than in the past, would have to turn back the overpayment, he said. 'Difficult Task' "This is a very difficult budgetary task, and fraught with difficult governmental consequences."
