Missouri Shutdown Meat Plant Crackdown Transcript | Weather in the News JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — In order to comply with a new federal request, 115 inspectors of the state Department of Agriculture have been Penitentiary Official, Wife Die in Crash PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) Jim J. Banker, 42, deputy warden in charge of mass treatment at the Kansas Penitentiary, and his wife were killed Tuesday night when their car struck a bridge near Platte City. Banker's wife, Virgie, 37, was a senior officer at the Kansas State Correctional Institution for Women. Both facilities are in Lansing. Banker was appointed to the deputy warden's position in May, 1970, by Robert N. Wood son, Kansas penal director. R. J. Gaffney, penitentiary waif den, said: "We are shocked and saddened at this tragedy. Jim was an oustand ing prison administrator and had a high sense of duty. (He and his wife) were wonderful people and they will be missed by all Who knew of their dedication." Gaffney credited Banker with having improved prison security "all across the line" and said it was Banker who drew up and organized the pris on's family picnic program. It permits inmates under trusty status to host relatives at picnics on major summer holidays. Banker, who was born at Ulysses Kan., had been at Lansing more than seven years. He was promoted to lieutenant and appointed training officer in 1967. Understanding the mutual funds Hospitals NORTH HOSPITAL BIRTHS Boy — Mr. and Mrs. Woddle A. Calvin, 1I3V 2 East 8th, Tuesday.

So far, for one reason or another, 146 plants have temporarily ceased oeprations during the inspection crackdown. Ninety-one have reopened and the rest are still closed, Davis said. Sixteen are closed down to make required changes in plant construction. Another of those re-opened today. Seven have converted to retail operations only rather than make the required construction changes, Davis said and emphasized that in no instance did the inspections show the existence of adulterated meat. The department said the corrections that are being made will comply with the federal directive and the state meat inspection program will continue operating in compliance. The crackdown came about recently when the U.S. department notified the Missoui department that changes in the review procedure had been made and Missouri had 30 days in which to comply or the USDA would take over all meat and poultry inspections. Davis said more money and more men are needed to meet the federal mandate. He said Missouri's enlarging meat production and processing industry calls for an increase in the personnel for this regulatory and consumer protection program. To Hire K61 Appraisers Two appraisers are expected to be hired Tuesday to began appraising property that will be condemned as right-of-way for the new 61 overpass on Hutchinson's eastside. An item on the city commission agenda will call for the granting of contracts with the only two appraisers who expressed an interest in the job. The city already has entered into a contract with the state for negotiations/ of land sale contracts. The city must pay the cost of securing the right- of-way. Tine city took possession of its first piece of condemned property last week, but most sales will not be transacted for at least two months. The contracts with the appraisers will call for the work to be completed In 60 days, and purchases should begin shortly thereafter. Municipal Traffic — William R.
