Muskie Cautions Party Dissidents MILWAUKEE (AP) ~ Sen Edmund Muskie, seeking votes in once solidly Democratic Milwaukee, said Tuesday that dissident Democrats may like the party less if they sit out this year's presidential campaign. "Some of these people complain of the inequities built in the party," said the Democratic vice presidential candidate at a news conference. "But a lot of those inequities are the result of past apathy. "The thing to assume is that the party structure will take a form you like even less than you did the one at the moment of your disaffection." The state's Democratic strength has been threatened by a breach over Vietnam policy. Sen. Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota, who swept Wisconsin's presidential primary election, has so far failed to endorse the Humphrey-Muskie ticket. McCarthy's Wisconsin supporters, vehemently opposed to the war, have been conspicously restrained in their enthusiasm for the party's national ticket. Party regulars, led by Milwaukee Mayor Henry Maier and Bronson C. La Follette, Democratic candidate for governor, formed the committee that welcomed Muskie at the airport on a pleasant but windy afternoon. Nelson on Hand U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson rode into the state on Muskie's jetliner and joined the former Maine governor on the reception line. Also present were Reps. Henry Reuss and Clement Zablocki, who are seeking re-election, and State Sen. Taylor Benson, the party's candidate for lieutenant governor. Maier introduced Muskie as "a true friend of the cities" and Mrs. Maier presented Mrs. Mus- kie with a bouquet of red roses. A band played, "He's Got the Whole World in his Hands" and a group of teen-age girls led the chant, "We Want Muskie." Muskie, who shook hands along the airport fence and answered questions posed by 25 Wisconsin farm officials, told supporters at the airport that he was campaigning to "build a country where it is safe to be free." His voice, hoarse around the edges, had to struggle with the wind and the roar of jets overhead . "I don't like shouting matches," said Muskie, "or shouting at people." Freeman Says Meat Quotas Not Needed WASHINGTON (AP) - No quotas will be imposed on meat imports at this time, Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman indicated Tuesday. Freeman estimated meat imports subject to quotas at 990 million pounds for 1968, 55 million pounds more than the previous quarterly estimate in June, but 55 million less than the amount which would ball for presidential action to restrict imports. The announcement was made here in a statement released by the Agriculture Department. Freeman was in St. Paul, Minn. The basis meat quota for this an additional 10 per cent is permitted before restrictions are imposed. Fretman said Australia and New Zealand have taken steps to cut back meat shipment to the United States during the last quarter of this year. He said that without this voluntary action the estimate would have been higher. House Advances Milk Sales Plan WASHINGTON (UPI) - The House Agriculture Committee Tuesday approved a controversial plan under which dairy farmers .could vote to adopt a checkoff program to finance milk sales promotion. The legislation, approved by a 204 committee vote, would also make farmer - sponsored changes in the Class I base plan for pricing milk in areas regulated by federal milk marketing orders. The Class I base program, currently in use only in the Puget Sound, Wash., marketing order, is a plan under which farmers are given individual quotas — or bases — for sales of high-priced "Class I" bottling milk. No Difference in Size SHAFTER, Calif. (UPI)There are no differences between large and small cottonseeds in stand or .eventual yield, reports the University of California Agricultural Extension Service. The new .legislation would make it easier for established farmers in areas using the plan to expand their quotas as total market sales expand. The legislation also would provide terms for allotting regular bases to new producers in Puget .Sound or any other milk sheds which may elect to use iie option Class I pricing programs. Could Reclaim Funds Under the checkoff program in the bill, farmers in marketing order areas could vote in referendum to determine whether they should foe required to pay promotion levies. Where the levies were adopted, producers who object to them would be allowed to claim refunds. The double-barreled bill now must be brought to the House floor under a procedure requiring a two-thirds margin for passage, congressional aides said The bill has the support of the administration and the National Milk Producers Federation but is opposed by the American Farm Bureau Federation. But Sees Substantial Farm Vote Freeman Says HHH Behind in Race By RICHARD McFARLAND ST. PAUL, Minn. (UW)-See- retary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman said Tuesday Vice President Hubert Humphrey is behind now in the race for the presidency but he predicted the farm group, for one, will vote "substantially for the vice president." Freeman said at a news conference that Republican candidate Richard Nixon is taking on the image Thomas Dewey did Long-Distance Shot Employed for Buffalo MLDDLETOWN, Ky. (lAP) — The buffalo on Charles Hargadon's farm recently received long distance vaccinations. Aiware that the animals were difficult to corral and handle, the veterinarian solved the problem by using a tranqullizer gun, filling it with vaccine. When the gun was fired, the needle pierced the buffalo hide and then dropped off after the vaccine was injected. 20 years ago—"studiously avoiding telling the people where he stands"—and his election could be "devastating" to farmers. Asked if Humphrey is 'behind now in the campaign, Freeman said, "Yes, that's no surprise." Convention Late One reason, he said, is that the Democratic National Convention was held late and Humphrey "wasn't able to build an organization until he was nominated." "The Republicans were able for a long time to make plans, but we've had to start from scratch," he said. Freeman, who described himself as an "adviser and man of the ranks" in the Humphrey campaign, said, "It's hard to say whether hecklers will wind up as a plus for Humphrey in his campaign. "But I think the people are reaching the end of their patience. Most of these people are anarchists. They're against everything and for nothing." Have to do Something The secretary said Humphrey has made it clear he is not going to be intimidated by hecklers but "as it becomes more raucous, law enforcement people are going to have to do something to stop it." Freeman predicted the "farm Denver Surrounds Glendale, Colo. GLENDALE, Colo. (AP) This community of about 1,800 is a rarity among small towns. It is entirely surrounded by Denver, which is a city, a county and a state capital all in one. Yet Glendale is in Arapahoe County.

"You can almost hear the dirt running through his fingers when he talks about farming. The Democrats have helped, the farmers. The Republicans have not." Freeman said he has "no way of knowing what (Sen. Eugene) McCarthy (of Minnesota) will do in the campaign." McCarthy Support "I hope he will support the vice president as the vice president supported him over the years," he said. "But I can't tell." Freeman repeated that it's "extremely doubtful" that he will continue as agriculture secretary after Jan. 20. He said he has received inquiries about whether he would like to become a college or university president and has been contacted by businesses. "I expect to make an announcement about my plans in the near future," he said. the Dally T«t«grom lau Claire, Wisconsin Wednesday, Oct.. 2, 1968 Pair of Salesmen ' Dreams Up New Drink NEW YORK (AP) - The latest example of what happens •when two salesmen meet socially and try to sell their products to each other, is the creation of which in the last few months has shown all the signs of being America's newest vodka sensation. Victor Fischel, president of a vodka distillery, and Ray Anrig, vice president of marketing, of a food product company, were introduced to each other at a New York restaurant, and started promoting their own products. Since Ray Anrig wouldn't have anything with vodka in it unless Vic Fischel sampled one of Anrig's company's juices, they put the two together, played around with the proportions, and on the spot started thinking up names for their brainchild. Since that luncheon, the Clam- digger has gone on to become a favorite from coast to coast. The recipe: pour a jigger of vodka into a six-ounce glass with rock$, fill to the top with 'clamato Juice and stir.
