Cooperation Moves Crops By RODERICK TURNBULL News Fami Analyst KANSAS aTY— Ths view at the Kansas City Board of Trade is that the transportation industry is belter oriented this year than in recent timies to move grain, but wheiUier it will be able to handle this fall's huge crops without serious trouble remains to be seem The situation for the fall is full of "ifs." Curiously, as the grain trade here sees it, the liMfi- cated improved ability of the railroads to move large quantities of graui Is not because of the adding of necdi- ed equipment. The fact is, there are fewer boxcars available now than some years ago. These traditionally have been the workhorses of the grain movement. There are, however, more of the new big hopper cars, but it is not believed the new hopper cars are of sufficient number to replace all the older boxcars which have been abandoned as obsolete. Where the improvement lies is in cooperation among the railroads, the trade (grain shippers), and the Interstate Commerce Commission. In effect, this cooperation was forced by "boxcar shortages" which had grown from something regarded as chronic, to one of crises proportions. A few years ago, the Kansas City Board of Trade asked railroads to meet with grain men to see if something could be done. The meetings have continued twice a year since. Chvnership Percentage At the start, the principal contention of the eastern railroads was that too many of their boxcars were being held by eastern and southern rail- Roderick Turnbull ways. Grain men began to leam what railroad men were talking about when they referred to "percentage of ownership" on their own lines. As an example, if a railroad owned 10,000 boxcars but had only 5,000 on its lines, regardless of which railroad owned the cars, it would then have equivalent to 5 percent of ownership on line. The western railroads complained that in the m<^rement of commodities, boxcars hauled grain from the middle of the country (the main farm belt) to the east and south, and then these same cars were loaded with other freight for transportation throughout the industrial east. The west- em railroads had a bard time getting tbem hack. On this problem, they asked for help. Meanwhile, grain transportation needs were being expand­ ed. No; 1, the amount of grain being produced, far exceeds the totals of some years ago. Not only that, more of it moves from the farms where it is produced. The huge broiler plants and cattle feedlots require feed that once would have been utilized on farms. In addition, our exports are double what they were 15 or 20 years ago. So not only is more grain produced, but a greater proportion has to t>e shipped. The grain trade's side of the issue was much more simple and blunt. They just could not get the boxcars when they were needed. Appealed To IOC To get more of the boxcars back onto western lines when they were needed, the Board of Trade, farm organizations, farm belt members of Congress and others appealed to the Interstate Commerce Commission. The ICC has the authority to issue "service orders" which require railroads to return empty boxcars to the lines that own them. The ICC would do this after proof that such action was necessary. The grain trade at Kansas City was contending that by the time proof was established each year, a boxcar shortage crisis would have developed. At the most recent meeting of railroads and the grain trade in Kansas City, the Union Pacific, Burlington Northern, Missouri Pacific, Rock Island and Santa Fe lines were represented, as well as ths Interstate Commerce Commission and the government's Commodity Credit Corporation. The subject was the movement of the fall harvest. It was agreed generally that some improvements seem apparent in the case of nearly all past difficulties. These improvements were manifest in the movement of the 1970 harvest, which was accomplished with a minimum of difficulties. However, the transportation problem in 1970 got a big assist from smaller crops of com and milo. This year, exactly the opposite is true as record harvests are promised not only on com and milo, but also soybeans, and the nation has harvested its biggest wheat crop. But it was pointed out at the meeting that the ICC is much quicker to act now than previously. In fact, commented one railroad official, "They are asking us to warn them if trouble Ls approaching instead of insisting on proof of the fact." The result is, cars are ordered west earlier in anticipation of the harvest movement. The grain trade has been trying to do a better job of utilizing cars. Board of Trade officials compliment the railroads for trying to do a better job overall — and this is an innovation. The railroads reported that they were getting more power — bigger engines to pull longer trains. Thus, with some optimism, the railroads and the trade look forward to the big harvest.

Main Buys Marker OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A friend cared and a modest bronze marker sets the grave of Marine Lance Cpl. Miguel Keith apart from others at Forest Lawn Cemetery Sunday. For five months, the inconspicuous site in the veterans section of the cemetery was unmarked. There was a market at the outset, but it was removed in April becau-se no one had paid the standard $25 fee for erecting a marker. The government provides markers for men kill In action, but does not finance their installation. Keith's family had left Omaha and could not be located, a cemetery official said. "Usually we don't set markers without advance payment, said Frank J. Priborsky, cemetery general manager. "We left Uiis one up longer than usual, but we couldn't reach the family so we removed it." Down Payment Last week, a friend visited Kcitli's grave. He made a $10 down payment on the erection fee and contacted Capt. James Shumaker, inspector-instructor at tlie Navy and Marine C^rps Training Center near Fort Omalia. Only last Tliursday, Kcilh was ix>sthumously awarded tlie Medal of Honor, the natbn's highest military decoration. It was for action which caused his May, 1970 death in Vietnani at the age of 18. Shumaker said he tried un- successfuly to contact Keith's relatives in Texas before securing tlie balance of the money needed for the marker from the First Marine Division Association. 'It was such a .small sum and it seemed like the least we could do for anyone who liad given his life," he said.

MCPHERSON, Ga. (AP) - Lt. William L. Calley Jr., convicted earlier this year of murdering My Lai civilians will be called as a witness Monday when the defense opens its case in the murder trial of his former commander, Anny Capt. Ernest Medina. Calley, whose life sentence was cut to 20 years recently, was to be flown to Ft. McPherson outside Atlanta from Ft. Benning, Ga., where ho has been confined to his quarters since last spring. The defense expects Calley to take the 5th Amendment and refuse to testify. Defense lawyer F. Lee Bailey says he has learned, through a source he refused to name, that Galley's version of what happened during the 1968 attack on My Lai has changed since his court- martial. The lieutenant testified at his trial that he was acting at My Lai under orders from Medina to destroy the Vietnamese village and kill everything in it. Medina denied ever giving such orders and said he was unaware that his troops were killing civilians until the operation was almost over. LONDON (AP) - A group of 7-year-olds hide behind a school wall and sip an illegal white substance—milk. Scenes like this are being repeated at state schools across Britam as the government faces a simmering revolt against a controversial law that bans free milk. The law canceUing a longstanding state handout of milk to school children 7 to 11 years old was supposed to go into effect Sept. 1. But the Conservative government is finding it hard to make the law stick. Many local school boards have discovered igenious loopholes and others simply ignore it. More than 13,000 kids in the Wel^ towns of Swansea and Methyr Tydfil have been drinking free milk illegally at midmorning eveiy day for the past week. The British government, trying to cut spending, banned the free milk to all children except those needing it for medial reasons. Trim The Budget The government hoped the move would trim its budget by $21.6 million a year. A former mayor of Methyr Tydfil, Bryn Watkins, is unimpressed by the government's argument that many 'kids don't need free milk even on medical grounds. "We know about poverty, malnutrition, rickets and TB in this town," he said, "and we will not countenance the erosion of the welfare state." At Leeds and Birmingham schools, rebellious medical officers are deliberately interpreting the medical exemption clause so liberally that at one school 86 out of its 187 children were declared eligible.

(M—Missing, T—Trace) City Is Murder Capital Detroit Mayor Would Ban Guns (C) 1971 N.Y. Times News Service DETROIT — Detroit. Mayor Roman Gribbs has called for a statewide campaign to amend Michigan's constitution to ban handguns. The campaign will probably take the form of a petition drive. 500 people have been murdered in Detroit so far this year, averaging two per day, and making this city of 1.5 million the murder capital of the nation. In all of last year, 550 persons were murdered here. "We can stand no more. I can stand no more," Gribbs said in a news conference.

ALL HUTCHINSON DILLON STORES Driver in Fatality Arraigned WICHITA (AP) - Dan R. Butz, 51, Wichita, accused of driving the auto which figured in a fatal colUsion Friday evening, was arraigned in; Sedgwick County District Court Friday night on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, said Cept. John Monahan of the sheriff's office. Butz is in jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. A hearing was set for Wednesday. The accident happened when his car went off the' road and into a ditch in northwest Wichr ita. Butz allegedly pulled the car back onto file road in the path of a motorcycle driven by Lloyd Stephens, 56, Wichita. Stephens and his daughter, Sabrina, 3, were thrown from the cycle. She died at the scene. Wesley Medical Center officials listed Stephens in critical condition Saturday night in the intensive care unit. ; Try • , The New • Camelot J Inn • 16th & Adams, Hutchinson # I ?7 up- • 0 for Reservations # 0 Phone 663-6175 Collect ^ H Color TV Every Room # troit coordinator in the statewide drive. "We will ask the active support of police officers and their unions 'and organizations in achieving this goal," the mayor said. While there is strong opposition to handgun control, normally from sportsmen, or from rifle or right wing organizations, the police departments around the state could be a political base for such a drive to change the constitution. Larger Program The statewide drive is part of a larger program proposed by the mayor including: A fund to be set up by the city council for rewards in police shooting cases. —Passage of a city law limiting the sale of ammunition for pistols to buyers with a gun inspection card, and the declaring of unregistered handguns illegal. —A city law authorizing mandatory penalties, 90 days in jail or a $500 fine, for the vuiauthor- ized carrying of guns. Michigan's cons t i t u 11 o n states "every person has a right to keep and bear arms for the defense of himself and the state." The aim of a petition drive would be to modify this amendment. The murder rate has risen dramatically since the 1967 riots here. "There is a tremendous resistance to gun control," Gribbs said, but as crime in the city drops, according to police reports, murder goes up "beyond any tolerable limit."
