Wheat futures decline By ED SE MOCK CHICAGO (AP) Wheat futures declined nearly 2 cents a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade today. Soybeans, down 1 cent early, rallied under good commercial demand. Soybean oil and meal were little changed, but corn was down nearly 1 cent and oats were mixed.

Iced broilers were little changed and trade slow. Reports from the country indicate that the wheat crop being harvested in the Southwest is in good condition. There also were rains in Southwest overnight. Selling of the nearby May was most active again. Corn and oats futures also were weak on the opening and buyer interest relatively thin.

There appeared to be little outside influence, or public in- volvment, in both pits. Prices in the soybean complex were weak on the opening. The selling was thought to have been an overflow from the previous session when aU three commodities were weak. After the initial selling, however, local professionals and commission house buying set in and prices improved. After about an hour, wheat was to 114 cents a bushel lower, May 1.60%; corn was to lower, May 1.21%; oats were 14 lower to May cents and soybeans were unchanged to 1 cent higher, May 3.46%.

Skeel, lowest paid county highway superintendent in the state, told the Telegraph today that the salary figure wiU have to be negotiated later after the state approval of the reappointment is received. The controversy over Skeel's post has been going on for the last two years or more with the pressure for his dismissal accelerated after formation of a citizen advisory committee to the county unit road system. Representatives the Illinois Department of Transportation met with the commissioners about three months ago to discuss the highway superintendent problem and possibility of employing another person.

However, no candidate was found who would take the job at a salary figure that the commissioners felt Calhoun County could afford. Latest move in the controversy prior to Wednesday's action was the commissioners decision last month to reappoint Skeel temporarily as acting superintendent. Recommendations for the dismissal came from the advisory group, in response to numerous complaints about what was reported as lack of proper supervision. All of the negotiations with Skeel were conducted in the highway department office with the session going past 5 p.m. and the action reported to the county clerk today.

August Nolte, president of the advisory committee, was present at the meeting during the morning hours but was not invited to sit in on the session. However, Commissioner Lavonne Johnson had left the session at 11:35 a.m. for the day and was not present when the decision to discuss acquisition of rigjit of way for proposed road improvement near Meppen was made. The highway right-of-way acquistion. revolves about the commissioners decision to share cost of a road leading to Bim's Place recreational area and to the Brussels Hunting and Fishing Club, an exclusive club composed of Missourians.

The advisory committee had decided that Skeel not be reappointed, but he be retained on a temporary basis to allow him to qualify for his retirement benefits. Their recommendation was based on contacts with Calhoun taxpayers who expressed overwhelming opposition to retaining Skeel in the post, the Telegraph learned. In related action the commissioners approved employment of Richard Rawllngs as resident engineer on a road construction project four miles south of Hardin. He will receive $8.50 per hour up to 40 hour per week and $12.50 for each overtime hour plus 12 cents per mile mileage with minimum mileage to be tour dollars per day. This employment was made to fulfill state requirements for a resident engineer since Skeel is not an engineer.

In other business, rezoning from flood plain to residential was okayed for land owned John Held at Swan Lake, and for the Gallinipper'Club House area along the Illinois River, 7 miles south of Hardin. An anticipation warrant for $2,000 for the Municipal Retirement Fund was issued to the Bank of Calhoun at 5y 2 per cent interest. This represents the first such warrant issued for the fund under, an authorization for up to $8,000 in warrants. The commissioners took under advisement a request for $500 in county funds to assist the soil conservation district board. They also heard a presentation from a representative of the cooperative extension service about the possibilities of joining with adjoining counties in a regional redevelopment area.

headquarters listed two Americans killed in action last week, a drop of eight from the previous week. However, the command announcement also showed an increase of 19 to 27 in the number of Americans missing in action. Many of these were crewmen lost in planes or helicopters shot down in inaccessible areas. U.S. headquarters said 24 Americans were wounded in action last week, a drop of 54 from the 78 total of the previous week.

Six americans died last week from nonhostile causes, the command said. South Vietn amese headquarters reported its casualties last week were 769 men killed, 2,794 wounded and 319 missing.

It was the company's best six-month profit in seven years.

Company officials said federal taxes due were offset by credits from previous losses. The company suffered a loss in the second quarter of its previous fiscal year although it had a $1.1 million profit for the half year. The six-month profit this year came from $685.2 million in sales, up from $614 million last year, officials said. Company officials gave the new AMC car-warranty plan much of the credit for the boom. Last week General Motors reported six-month profits of $651 million, and Ford reported $251 million.

Police said seven women were in the waiting room of the four-room clinic and three others were In a postoperative room, apparently after abortions, which are illegal in Illinois. They said the clinic was professionally equipped and appeared to have been run on a not-for- profit basis for women who could not afford to travel to other states or countries for legal abortions. The second raid was conducted on an apartment which police said had served as a referral service for the clinic.

Homicide investigator Theodore Thomas said the seven women arrested appeared to have been professionally trained by physicians. He said police would question local doctors about possible referrals to the clinic. Charged with abortion and conspiracy to commit abortion were: Sheila Smith, 22; Madeline Schwenk, 30; Martha Scott, 30; Abby Golon, 27; Diane Stevens, 23; Susan Galapazer, 21, and Judith Pildes, 29, all of Chicago. By BROOKS JACKSON WASHINGTON (AP) Prices charged by over half the nation's largest firms have been frozen, and the Price Commission is notifying the companies to file overdue reports' or face price rollbacks and possible fines. The commission, ordering the freeze Wednesday, estimated that nearly 1,600 firms have not filed reports on their economic status, the most recent of which were due Monday.

Chairman C. Jackson Grayson said the commission also will notify each delinquent firm that unless it files a report within five working days, the commission will cut its prices and ask the Justice Department to take court action that could lead to fines of up to $2,500. Commission rules generally require firms with more than $50 million in yearly sales to file reports every three months. Firms that raise prices must give details, and firms that haven't must say so. By last Monday, all such firms should have filed at least one report.

Grayson estimated there are 2,954 firms required to file reports, but that only 1,375 have done so. He did not name the delinqdent ones, but a commission spokesman said a list would be released in a few days. Grayson also said the commission decided this week not to change regulations exempting food prices from President Nixon's economic controls, but will ask for stepped-up enforcement of existing rules and will watch food supplies closely to forecast possible problems. The commission held public hearings on food costs a few weeks ago, and Grayson said action would be taken unless a sharp rise in food prices slackened. Since then, Grayson said, the commission has seen "sufficient easing" in food prices.

He announced also that the commission reaffirmed its rule limiting firms that desire to raise prices to specific profit margins. But it rejected, 4 to 2, a proposal to apply the profit margin limit to firms that have held prices steady, he said. And he said a new regulation has gone into effect to require manufacturers to pass along productivity gains to customers as lower prices. The rule was first adopted several weeks ago, but didn't take effect immediately because details had to be worked out. Wallace, busing issues heat up Tennessee vote NASHVILLE, Tenn.
