By GORDON D. FIEDLER Jr. Staff Writer The cost of meals supplied by the Saline County Commission on Aging at its Leisure Years Center nutrition site might rise as a result of budget cuts at the federal and state levels. The aging commission learned Friday that the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Kansas Department on Aging have cut a total of $65,000 from the contribution to the Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging, which oversees the meal sites and other activities in Saline and 17 other counties. Uteva Powers, the area agency's field representative, said the USDA plans to cut $40,000 and the state $25,000 from the agency's $1.5 million nutrition budget. As a result, the meal costs at the 36 nutrition sites in the 18 counties could increase 10 cents or more. The individual sites also might have to assume the purchase of kitchen equipment, Powers said. The sites offer a hot noon meal to senior citizens. Persons under age 60 are required to pay $3, the full cost of the meal. Older diners are asked to contribute $1.50. To encourage development of the nutrition sites, the area agency pays for the kitchen equipment. Powers said the reductions were the result of independent decisions by the USDA and the state department on aging, and not from efforts to balance the federal budget. Hanne Middleton, director of the local aging commission, said the cuts come at a time when meal sites are trying to increase participation. "On one hand the budget is cut and on the other more people need the service," she said. She said that if the budget cuts signal a trend, that could force the aging commission to cut other programs.

Calvin L. Beale, head of population studies in the department's Econonic Research Service, said Friday the estimated number of farms in Kansas for 1985 was 72,000. In 1984, the estimate was 74,000 farms. The department and the Census Bureau released Thursday the national statistics for farm population in 1985. Figures for the state and county are not available, Beale and other state officials said. Farm population on the national level dropped by 7 percent in 1985. However, officials involved in gathering the statistics argue that some of the decline might be due to changes in sampling techniques. Beech lays off 11 Salina workers Beech Aircraft Corp. laid off 11 workers at its Salina plant this week, according to Fortunato Bonilla, plant chairman of Lodge No. 2328 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. The layoffs follow Thursday's report of disappointing sales in 1985 by industry representatives of American small-plane manufacturers. John Gedraitis, a Beech spokesman in Wichita, said he doesn't have any information about rumors of further layoffs. The Salina plant employs about 250 workers. In 1985, small-plane manufacturers experienced a sales decline of about 16 percent from the previous year. According to figures given to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association, Beech sold 288 planes worth $272.6 million in 1985. That compares to sales of 411 planes worth $327.3 million in 1984. Beech's market share of units sold dropped from 16.9 percent in 1984 to 14.2 percent in 1985. The manufacturers association, which represents 37 manufacturers of small aircraft, engines and related equipment, acknowledged at its meeting Thursday in Washington that 1986 might see little improvement. In a departure from previous years, the association did not make a prediction of sales for 1986. 39 arrested at Loverboy concert Salina police and Saline County sheriff's officers made 39 arrests Thursday night at the Loverboy concert, primarily for marijuana and alcohol possession, Assistant Police Chief Glen Kochanowski said Friday. Arrests involved 11 juveniles and 28 adults. The juveniles were detained until their parents could be summoned. Six adults were given notices to appear in court but were not taken into custody, Kochanowski said. The others were jailed, but all posted bond and were released. Arrests have averaged 20 to 25 arrests at past rock concerts in Salina, Kochanowski said. But the number of arrests at the Loverboy concert at the Bicentennial Center was not unusual, he said. "It's not abnormal at all. The crowd was really well behaved," he said. "They came for a good time and a good show and they didn't rampage the town." Benefit musical auditions planned The Salina Community Theatre is planning auditions Sunday and Monday for "Sing For Your Supper," a benefit musical revue featuring the music of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. Charles Kephart, director of the theatre, said he expects the revue to raise about $4,000, which will be used for the building fund and to buy lighting and sound equipment. The revue will be presented March 13-16. Auditions will be at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday and at 7 p.m. Monday at the theater. Those auditioning are to sing a song of their choice and must bring their own music. An accompanist will be provided. Dave Clark, Kansas Wesleyan professor of music, will direct the orchestra, and June Meador of the community theatre will give vocal instruction.

City to take final action on assessments The Salina City Commission will take final action Monday on the 1986 assessments for the downtown Business Improvement District. The assessments are expected to generate about $11,000, or 31 percent of the budget for the improvement district, which oversees the downtown renovation project. The rest of the money for the district's budget will come from local sales tax revenue as part of an agreement signed by the commission in 1984. The commission committed the city to supply $5 of public money for every $1 raised privately for the $6.5 million in public improvements downtown. Besides the price of operating the improvement district, the downtown project cost $797,393 in 1985. City Manager Rufus Nye said $575,250 went for land and building purchases. Other expenditures were made for architectural services, appraisals, legal fees, abstract fees and title insurance, and relocation expenses. The city budgeted $800,000 for 1985 expenses. In other business, commissioners will consider final action in a rezoning request for certain lots in six blocks along South Santa Fe. Residents want their property's zoning changed from multiple-family residential to single-family residential. The request, from Nancy Hodges, 850 S. Santa Fe, on behalf of her neighbors, has the endorsement of the Salina Planning Commission. Also, commissioners will be asked to: • Authorize the mayor to sign an agreement with Bucher, Willis and Ratliff to expand the restroom facilities at the Bicentennial Center. • Accept the low bid of $43,890 from Bob Albers Construction Co. for renovation of the Smoky Hill Museum. The museum moved from a building in Oakdale Park to the former post office building on West Iron. 'JEAN STATION Over 500 Swimsuits To Choose From 50%««75%off Mid State Mall Salina The Church... '.THE HOPE OF OUR COMMUNITY, OUR NATION! I must think it over! That's what my parents said when I asked if I could go to Eddie's Sunday School. You see, there are lots of churches in town. And my parents haven't decided which one we ought to attend. These are important decisions. They take time! But that doesn't make Sunday mornings much fun. With all my friends at church, there's nobody to play with except that bully up the street. And Dad and Mother say I shouldn't play with him. That's funny! How come parents can decide what kind of boys we should play with, but they can't decide what church we should attend? Seems to me that going to church next Sunday might help us all decide.
