Fifty thousand banana farmers in Ecuador, lacking insurance on their perishable crop, half of which is sold in the United States. are threatened with ruinous losses. A million tons of U.S. food consigned as aid to foreign nations is dammed up in nearly paralyzed ports from Maine to Texas. Losses to the domestic economy alone are estimated at beyond |400 million, and rising $20 to §25 million a day. These are some of the effects of the work stoppage that has tied up general cargo at 41 Atlantic and Gulf coast ports since Dec. 23. The strike stemmed from a contract dispute between 60,000 mem- bers of the AFL-CIO International Longshoremen's Association and the New York Shipping Association, representing the shipping industry. Alexander P. Chopin, association chairman, appraised the dollar cost domestically. In Chicago, the wholesale price of bananas jumped $1.50 a 40- pound box to $5.25. Imported phonograph record players were in short supply in New York. Dealers in imported cars ran low on, or out of, some popular models. Chief sufferers so far have been the payless dock and allied maritime workers, port city stores and taverns they patronize, steamship lines and import-export businesses. No major industrial shutdowns were reported because of inability to move good from factory sites, or store them. Many businesses adjusted to shipping and storage problems. The day after the strike began, rail shipments of general cargo to affected ports was embargoed. Even so, more than 14,000 rail cars clogged yards and approach es to the docks this week. Two- thirds of them were filled with grain for export elevators. Elevators neared their working capacity of 3.9 million bushels in Philadelphia and 11.5 million bushels at New Orleans. Oil, coal, sugar, ore and other bulk materials movements were affected little or not at all at Boston, Norfolk and other ports. This type cargo is loaded and unloaded automatically — without longshoremen labor. Despite this, about 400 ships were immobilized at pierside anc harbor anchorages, one-fourth ol them at New York.

Deep in the piney forests of Here to address the Buchanan County Medical Society, Ravdin said in an interview that research being conducted in the chemotherapy field is promising. "I believe this study will find a group of agents which will work on various malignant lesions," he said. "While nothing is achieved rapidly in medical science, these new agents may be available in the not too distant future."

Thei railroad came through, but bypassed Gainesville. Shipping shifted to railroad towns, and Gainesville slowly declined. It never recovered. In 1962, Gainesville had only some 35 families. It had a small unused school, one store, two Baptist churches. But its people'- were firmly rooted. They loved its remoteness and closeness to ^untouched nature. Sonic lived in homes in which their ''families, had stayed for generations.

KEEN TV SERVICE S. Main CH 2-3490| 11 Children In Family Of Year MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-How do roti bring up 11 children and have "no problems at all"? "I suppose it was because we had great love for them and wanted them to be happy so they'd be good," said Mrs. Richard T. Seidel, .named with her husband and children as the National Catholic Family of 1962. Two sons are priests, Fathers John J. Seidel, 35, curate of St. Peter Canisius Church in Chicago, and Thomas E. Seidel, 31, Holy Cross father who teaches at Notre Dame High School, Chicago. Two youngest daughters are nuns—Sisters Mary Gabriel, 23, and Catherine, 19. They are at the Benedictine Priory in St. Paul. Announcement of the selection for the honor was made Wednesday by the National Catholic Welfare Conference. Sunday the family will receive a plaque at services at Visitation Church, with the presentation to be made by Archbishop Leo Binz of St. Paul. Seidel, 63, a retired oil execu tive, said his family is extremely grateful and humbly proud about the honor. He said there probably are many other families better qualified. $50 Reward For Cash Find ones now under way here, will lead eventually to a breakthrough in improving East-West relations. Major Kennedy administration hopes at the moment still center on the possibility of getting an American-British agreement with tiie Soviet Union for a nuclear weapons test ban. This is due in part to the belief that the widening split between the Soviet Union and Red China may influence Soviet nuclear test policy. President Kennedy spent an hour at the White House late Wednesday with Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kuznetsov, who is scheduled to return to Moscow in a few days. Kuznetsov meets with Secretary of State Dean Rusk today and then lunches with Rusk and other oreign policy officials at the State Department. On leaving the White House Aiznetsov said only that he came rom New York to Washington at he President's invitation and that Cennedy and he had discussed 'some problems of mutual interest." White House press secretary Pierre Salinger said the two men and their aides met "in a very cordial atmosphere" and reviewed the recent negotiations on the Cuban crisis which had been conducted in New York. U.S. officials said specific subjects touched on by Kennedy or Kuznetsov included disarmament and Berlin. It was reported that Kuznetsov brought up the Berlin question, but for what purpose was not disclosed. Kuznetsov was invited to see the President and Rusk, it is understood, primarily because U.S. leaders appreciated the diplomatic manner in which he had handled the Cuban negotiations.
