JOSEPH, Minn. - A stubborn fire that erupted in the St. Joseph Feed Mill at 11 a.m. today was still smouldering heavily an hour and a half later as two departments fought the blaze and volunteers helped salvage feed. Mrs. William Chan c e, Times correspondent, said at noon truckloads of feed were being hauled away from the burning structure. Tons of feed were believed in storage there. She said William Rothfork, operator of the mill, said he "thought the fire had started from spontaneous combustion in a feed bin." He said a worker had thought he smelled smoke Friday. The. smouldering fire was centered in the feed concentrates and was sending up a smelly pall over the area. The fire was producing little smoke, however. Rothfork was quoted as saying the feed has to be removed or 'it could burn for a week." The volunteer department here was being helped by the St. John's university department. , - ya : vi.. v , jr i mmmmmmsmm ii U. 5. Hails Chile Red Rebuff WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials greeted with relief and delight today the landslide ! victory of Sen. Eduardo Frei in Chile's presidential election. They had feared that a comparable win by Frei's chief i rival, Communist-backed Salvador Allende, could have led to a ; bigger setback to democracy and gam for communism in this hemisphere than the Red takeover of Cuba. Frei is leftist by U.S. stand ards. But he has avowed a pro-West pro-U.S. foreign policy and a domestic reform program that relies on democratic methods. Allende, an avowed Marxist, campaigned on an anti - U.S. pro-Castro Communist foreign policy. At home, he wanted to socialize the economy, including seizure of the big U.S. copper firms there. Frei's triumph apparently assures that Chile will continue to be a prominent member of the inter-American system and a supporter of the Alliance for Progress program of social and economic reforms with U.S. aid. The candidate supports both policies. The United States is assisting Chile at the rate of $150 million year.

DFL Rallies Today to Welcome Humphrey LOCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) -Rep. William E. Miller, formally opening his campaign for the vice presidency, charged today that Democratic vice-presidential nominee Hubert H. Hum phrey has a record that is "clearly one of the most radical in Congress." In his prepared text, Miller devoted much of his speech to an attack on Humphrey's connection with Americans for Democratic Action, which he termed "unquestionably the most influential organization in our nation's capitol attempting to subvert and transform our government into a foreign SO' cialistic totalitarianism." Humphrey was one Oi the founders of ADA, which backs what it considers liberal causes He served as its chairman in 1949-50 and has been a vice chairman since then.

Goldwater was to make a 3,- fino-mile roundtrip flight from Phoenix, Ariz., to appear with Miller. He was to return to his home in Phoenix afterwards. Miller quoted President Johnson's statement that Humphrey is "the best man in America" to be vice president and added: "If Hubert Humphrey, with the program he advocates and supports is the 'best man,' then Lyndon Johnson is the 'worst.' " Miller said that during Hum phrey's 15 vears in the Senate, "he has voted the official ADA line nn 191 occasions and has bolted on only three occasions. He said the ADA advocates "diplomatic recognition of Red China," "the admission of Red China to the United Nations," "a total abandonment of the Panama Canal," "that we rec-"a total abandonment of the Panama Canal." "that we rec ognize the permanence and legitimacy of communism in East Germany," "that we reaamu Cuba to the Organization of American States and welcome (Cuban Premier Fidel) Castro into the Alliance for Progress" and "that we must repeal every single piece of internal security legislation" and "abolish the House Committee on Un-American Activities' MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.

His success set back a serious Communist threat to the copper- rich Latin American republic. Frei, 53, a reform-minded Christian Democrat, trounced Communist - backed Socialist Salvador Allende, who had pledged to nationalize nearly $2 billion worth of U.S property in Chile and restore diplomatic relations with Cuba. We have obtained a truly immense victory. I receive this mandate of the people with humility," Frei told cheering thousands. Revolution! Revolution!," enraged followers of Allende shouted. They charged that President Johnson and Pope Paul VI had contributed money to defeat Allende, a plump 56- year-old physician who has lost three times in a bid for the presidency. Allende's opponents said Moscow and Havana had smug gled money into the country for his campaign. Frei followers celebrated into the night, singing and dancing in the streets. Frei, a senator, will take the government reins Nov. 4 for a six-year term. He succeeds Jorge Alessandir, barred by the constitution for seeking re-election.
