December 10, 1976 I'ACJK H HAYS DAILY NEWS Kansas Democrats Also Gain At County Levels ' TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) — The taking over the Kansas 'House by Denocrats made headlines after the general election, but reports arriving at the secretary of state's 'office show the minority party also gained ground at the local level Nov. 2. Jan Myers of Shawnee, acting state Democratic chairman, said the inroads are a start and indicate grass roots support. "We were hearing about this election night," she said. "As the county chairmen called in, they were highly elated. "They talk about who's got the power at the top, but you don't have anything unless you've got these bottom offices," she said.

No Damage In Wyoming Quake MAMMOTH SPRINGS JUNCTION, Wyo. (UPI) Officials say the largest earthquake in a year and a half has been recorded in a remote area of Yellowstone National Park, but there was no damage. The National Earthquake Information Service at Golden, Colo., said the quake Thursday registered 5.0 on the Richard scale. Buildings shook but no damage was reported, Bob' Haraden, assistant park superintendent, said. The epicenter of the quake was in the remote central area of the park, between Norris Junction and Canyon Junction, Haraden said. "It felt rather obvious here at Mammoth," said Bob Haraden, park assistant superintendent. "The building shook. It was larger than most but there are earthquakes recorded here every day." The quake was the largest since a six-magnitude tremor struck June 30, 1975, the NEIS said. Haraden said there were three shocks associated with the quake. The first hit at 3:30 p.m., the next five minutes later, and the last, which was the most severe, a minute later, he said. Haraden said his office received no calls from curious persons. Few persons are in the park because all but one road is closed for the winter, and the snowmobile season has not yet started. Haraden said earthquakes of lower magnitude are recorded daily in the park. He said tremors only occasionally are noticed.

(2',0-7£> KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) — The Commodity News Service, Inc., reports a survey of grain exporters shows an Inconsistent policy of federal wheat grading at gulf ports is threatening export movement of United States wheat. The service said Thursday the problem developed in the past few days at several gulf port locations' where federal inspectors classified wheat at sharply lower dark hard vitreous content (DHV), the distinguishing grading factor between classification as yellow hard, hard wheat and dark hard wheat. Several cases were reported in which inspection at interior points, including federal inspectors, classified wheat at a DHV content of 55 and 65, and later federal inspectors at the ports graded the quality at less than 40, making it yellow hard wheat. The survey showed the drastic changes of grade determination by federal inspectors at the ports were in direct contrast to federal inspection at interior points. Loadings have slowed at several gulf locations due to exporter reluctance, according to the survey. In the past, exporters have paid an extra cost of as much as $100,000 due to an inconsistent inspection. Exporters said they were perplexed over the current conflicting attitudes of federal inspectors, leaving them uncertain as to the eventual classification of wheat now purchased and scheduled for export. One exporter said the problem can reduce and even stop clearance of a large portion of grain scheduled for vessel loading. Determination of DHV content is determined by visual inspection, which can vary, from one inspector to another. Umbrellas were first introduced in England in the 17th century. They were intended lo be held over the head of a bcwigged clergyman as he conducted last rites at the gravesite. KOOKY COPTER • For ages 4-8 j • Friction powered rotor really spins.
