Decen HAYS DAILY NEWS Wheat Picture Not Rosy By FUKO JOHNSON Of The News Staff Ellis County's 1977 wheat crop is not in as good condition as could be hoped for, but should not be counted out yet, according to FHS Experiment Station wheat researcher Ron Livers. Livers said the condition of Ellis County winter wheat does not presfnt a "rosy prospect" although he has not seen much wheat he would give up on. According to the statistical department of the USDA, the condition of Kansas wheat is deteriorating because cold, dry weather has prevented top growth. USDA said continuing cold weather would require a good snow cover to protect wheat and add soil moisture. According to Livers, however, a good snow would help the wheat but snow cover is not usually a factor in Kansas. Snow is a much larger factor in the more northern slates of the wheat belt where farmers can grow winter wheat only if they have a good snow cover to protect it from the severe cold. Kansas wheat, he said, usually gets through the winter without much help from snow. "Although an inch of moisture from snow would help, I think we'll get through the winter without it," he said. Where moisture is concerned, Livers said, snow isn't that much of a "god-send," as it takes about 10 inches of snow to equal an inch of rain. Kansas wheat gets most of its moisture in the spring months when it is most needed, he said. "Those things are more important than winter moisture," Livers added Moisture reading at the experiment station from September through November was 3.82 inches compared with 4.57.inches last year. The long time average for the three months is 4.62 inches. "As far as wheat conditions," Livers said, "I would guess statewide we're as well off as we were a year ago." However, he added, some wheat in the northwest portion of the county isn't looking as good as last year's crop. Some wheat along the river is dry and not all up, and what is up isn't growing, he said. "You would think farmers would be grazing it heavily but it just hasn't grown as much this fall as they would like," he said. Riding High Atop a strange bicycle called a Hi-wheeler, Fort Hays State student Jim Bell tours the campus. The Hut- ch'inson native said he saw the bike In a hometown store window and "I knew I had to have It." He says it's easier to ride than he Imagined. Bell is an FHS junior. Christmas Trees Getting Scarce Christmas trees, like everything else, are becoming more and more expensive but that apparently hasn't cut the demand for them locally. The Hays Optimist Club bought about 2,000 trees and only about 150 of them are still on display at the club's showroom at Alco. "We started selling them on Thanksgiving Day," said Raoul Brin, a salesman of the Optimist trees. Throughout December the demand has been brisk. Dale Wagner of Wagner Landscape and Garden Center said he thinks the demand for trees peaked this week. His supply "is getting pretty low." Oddly enough, Wagner said the biggest trees sold first. In past years demand has been heaviest for the smaller five- foot to seven-foot trees. Flocked trees are popular this year, Wagner explained.

Edwards AlUn L. J. (Bud) Brwngardt "We've flocked a lot of them in the last three weeks." Sales were also heavy at Boogaarts, where Scotch Pine,- White Spruce and Douglas Fir were offered. Store manager Wayne Stewart said he sold all ithe trees he ordered plus 40 trees that the WaKeeney Boy Scouts couldn't sell. But, he adds, "we're quite conservative on our price (and) I can't say we make too much on them." The hard-to-handle trees are stored on the sidewalk in front of the store and they must be stacked and restacked. That work adds to the labor cost. And, he adds, some trees disappear in the night and others that are passed over by shoppers must be thrown away. , According to Livers, early cold weather was enough to freeze the tops of the plants "pretty severely." Farmers, he said, are only grazing about five per cent of the wheat ground, compared with about 15 per cent last year. "In my judgment, small wheat is just as hardy as larger wheat, but it isn't as likely to grow and produce like larger wheat," he added. The 1976 crop didn't get all the spring moisture it really needed but began to lode better as harvest time neared, Livers said. The 1976 crop was the third largest in Kansas history. A forecast on Kansas' 1977 crop should be out sometime this month. Farmers, Livers said, like to have the wheat plants up in October with between 3-5 good stalks per plant. The plants have to acquire that growth in the fall or spring, and although the top growth is small, Livers said, he "is not giving up on the Kansas wheat crop." "With normal moisture through the spring, we should have a good crop. I hope nobody holds me to that though," he added. 2nd Person Faces Murder Charge SHARON SPRINGS (HNS) — Walter Rudolph Kowalke Jr., 32, Russell Springs, was charged Thursday in Wallace county court here with first degree murder in connection with the beating death last month of Russell Spings farmer Raymond Wycoff 60. Wallace County Attorney Jessie Linder said bond was set at $200,000. Kowalke was arrested Dec. 2 in a Colorado Springs, Colo., hospital for the murder. He was returned to Kansas Wednesday night. His wife, Darlene, was charged in county court earlier with the same offense. The Kowalkes Thursday were in jail at Goodland in lieu of the bonds. County Judge Logan Dobbs appointed Goodland attorney Selby Soward to defend Kowalke. Linda Trigg and Tom Olgevie, Goodland attorneys, will defend Mrs. Kowalke. Mrs. Kowalke led searchers to the body of Wycoff Dec. 3. The body, which appeared to have been beaten about the head, lay in a snow-covered ditch a few miles west of the Logan county line in Wallace county. Lawmen found a hammer nearby, which is believed to be the murder weapon. Authorities have not elaborated on possible motives in the killing, but it's known that the Kowalkes and Wycoff had had earlier relationships. All three are from Logan county, which adjoins Wallace on the east. Authorities believe Wycoff was slain in Wallace county. The preliminary hearings for both the accused have been tentatively set for Dec. 24. Hospital Notes ST.

President Ford, however, caused some investors to reflect when he denounced the increases as "irresponsible." Frank Zarb, Federal Energy administrator, said the impact of the decision was unclear. Aside from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the other 11 members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will raise prices 10 per cent, and probably another 5 per cent next summer. Wall Street, which already had discounted a 10 per ent increase, was encouraged that Saudi Arabia, which produces about a third of the world's oil, also lifted its production ceiling. That puts pressure on those countries with higher price hikes. Against that background, the Dow Jones industrial average, ahead more than five points at the outset, was up 2.91 points to 984.21 shortly before 1:15 p.m. EST. The blue-chip average lost 2.49 points Thursday, after rising 23 points the previous six sessions. It has climbed almost 60 points in the past six weeks. On a broader, scale, the NYSE common stock index was ahead 0.03 to 56.48 and the average price of a common share was up two cents. Advances led declines, 712 to 612, among the 1,836 issues crossing the tape. There were 512 unchanged issues.

Russian Ambassador students Applaud Moynihan Finish MOSCOW (UPI) ^ The Soviet Union has honored Yakov A. Malik, its former ambassador to the United Nations, with the Order of Lenin. The official Tass news agency said Friday that the decoration was presented to the veteran Soviet diplomat on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Malik, who ranks as a deputy foreign minister, is being replaced as U.N. ambassador by Oleg Troyanovsky. Malik previously served as Soviet ambassador to Japan and Great Britain and was at the United Nations from 19481952 and again from 1967-1976. NEW YORK (UPI) - Prof. Daniel Patrick Moynihan has only a few more papers to grade before he moves to Washington to become Senator Moynihan. Moynihan said Thursday he has completed his teaching assignment at Harvard University and will move to Washington Jan. 1. as the junior U.S. Senator from New York.

The NYSE high- speed transaction tape ran six minutes late in the first half ' hour. Also in the news background, the Federal Reserve Board reported late Thursday the nation's basic money supply rose $800 million last week and $2.3 billion on a broader basis. In addition, loan demand at New York's largest banks rose $479 million. Analysts were disturbed, however, by a 2 per cent drop in retail sales last week, an indication consumer confidence has not picked up. Also, housing starts dropped 6 per cent in November. But building permits climbed 6 per cent. International oils generally were higher as a result of the OPEC decision. Occidental Petroleum led. the Big Board active list, up 'A, to 23'/4 on 201,000 shares. Texaco, which has a big stake in Saudi Arabian oil, was third, up % to 27% on 214,400 shares. Among the other oil companies with large Saudi stakes, Royal Dutch Petroleum was ahead 1, California Standard '/4 and Mobil %. Among the other oils, Superior was up IVz and Getty I'/s. Joy Manufacturing, an ojl service firm, was the second most active issue, off 1% to 44V8 on 219,300 shares, including a block of 169,100 shares at 44. (Following stocks courtesy of Darrell G.

Ford Wednesday cited "an .immediate and serious threat" to much of the livestock industry, and said the problem was greatest in the Midwest. Aid will go first to producers in South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin, but other states probably will be eligible for the same help from the Agriculture Department and the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration, he said. In a statement announcing his decision, Ford noted that the farmers had been getting emergency aid in the form of government-owned reserves of livestock feed grains. Because the small government supply was exhausted, he said he was directing the Agriculture Department to substitute cash for the farmers to buy grain. KANSAS CITY, Mo.
