December 23, 1976 PAGE 2 HAYS DAILY NEWS Judgment Awarded Firm Dennis Jhe Menace OBERL1N (HNS) - The Decatur Co-op Assn. has been awarded a judgment of more than $14,000 In what could become a landmark case pertaining to grain deals between farmers and elevators. A Decatur county district court jury last week ruled that Oberlin farmer Franklin Urban must pay the co-op $14,282.10, plus interest, in damages resulting from an alleged unfulfilled agreement to sell the elevator 10,000 bushels of wheat on July 26, 1973. The co-op filed suit in August, 1973, alleging Urban had made a verbal agreement via telephone July 26 to sell 10,000 bushels of wheat to the elevator at $2.86 a bushel. The agreement, co-op officials said, called for the wheat to be delivered no later than Sept. 30. On Aug. 13, Urban, who iiad been custom-cutting in Colorado, allegedly called the elevator and informed officials he would not sign an earlier-sought confirmation of the verbal contract and that he would not deliver the wheat. In the meantime, the wheat price had risen to $4.30 a bushel at the elevator. On July 27, the elevator said it had included the 10,000-bushel purchase in a sale to the office of FAR- marketing en- G(MIN) Nf 10 3- 5- 8-23 7-62-68 CANCER „„«.

The cooperative filed suit for delivery at the original- price. The late District Judge William Ryan dismissed the case, ruling that Urban was protected under the state's fraud statutes. Judge Ryan ruled that Urban was not a merchant. In certain cases, agreements between merchants for exchanges involving $500 or more need not be in writing. The cooperative contended Urban was, in fact, a merchant, operating with a knowledge of . certain established buying and selling procedures and with a knowledge that the cooperative would be damaged by a change in his porition (terms). The co-op appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court, which ruled that the fraud statutes were intended to prevent fraud, not encourage it. The court issued a "promissory estoppel", or "barred" Urban's testimony that he had not made a contract to sell his wheat. When the case came back to Decatur county, Stan Morgan, the co-op's attorney had to prove to the jury that there was a contract between Urban and the co-op and that Urban knew or should have known the established procedure whereby wheat is sold by verbal agreement to elevators. Under a court rule, none of the jurors was a member or spouse of a member of the local cooperative. Commodities are often bought and sold at the nod of the head or a wave of the hand. The Decatur county district court ruling, while only binding in that judicial district, apparently could serve as a showcase or "landmark" in state law.

Ann Landers Has An Answer Playing Safe AMERICAN LEGION will be closed • Friday, December 24 * Saturday, December 25 • Saturday, January 1 Dining room will be dosod till January 7th Now Yoars Evo Tickets Still Available At Club We wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to our members and guests and thank you for your patronage. See you back in '77. Dear Ann: Last weekend we took our. family to King's Island. I was concerned about our three-year-old because she's a very active child and I feared she might get lost. I stuck a length of heavy macrame cord in my purse. When we arrived, I laced it through the belt loops on her jeans,and tied it with a knot. The otKer end I looped around ''my wrist. Needless to say' we were never separated arid I had a much better time not having to worry about her safety. What surprised me was the respone of the onlookers. All day long people kept making comments. One woman said, "Maybe she thinks the little girl is a dog." Don't people realize what could happen to a lost child? During the day, I saw several children being spanked and scolded for wandering off. No one pointed and commented on THAT. I hope you will agree with me, Ann. Please comment. — Playing It Safe In Indianapolis Dear SAFE: I do. As for the onlookers, why concern yourself with them? You did what was best for your child and that's what counts. • Dear Ann: Tell the 60-year- old widow who signed herself "Mood Indigo" that the "beautiful married man" who played his little love game when they were stuck in the; elevator together didn't do it because he thought SHE was "attractive, youthful-looking and sexy." He did it because he thought HE was all those things, and she helped him prove it by falling like a ton of cordwood. Tell her if SHE had been his wife, and another woman got stuck in an elevator with him, he would have played the same game with HER. I'll bet the elevator Romeo's wife has watched him shower women with attention ever since they returned from their honeymoon. But she has no faar of losing him because she knows he would never do anything that might upset HIS life. Mr. "Me First" doesn't care what he does to the women who go gaga over him. How come I'm so smart? I just happen to be another gal whb is married to a beautiful man, but I couldn't care less what he does in elevators — or elsewhere. He's a lovely meal- ticket and I'm tired of working. — Mrs. X. Dear X.: Some marriage you've got there, lady. Mr. "Me First" must be an incurable Don Juan and you sould like you have the warmth of a barracuda. My guess is you two deserve each other.
