State may set record for sorghum production . ''• TOPEKA — Kansas is expected to set a record for sorghum production this fall, Kansas Agricultural Statistics reported Friday. • In its October estimate of fall- harvested, KAS increased the estimated yield from this year's grain sorghum crop to 349.8 million bushels, up from 331.2 million bushels forecast last month. ; The record for Kansas, which leads the nation in sorghum production, is 311.3 million bushels in 1986. ' The reason for the increase, •-said KAS statistician Eldon Thiessen, is the lateness of the ."first frost in Kansas this year. ;.:v "We haven't had a freeze to halt the maturing process," he said. '^So more sorghum is maturing and'can be harvested." .;.[ The October report raised the expected sorghum yield to 72 'bushels an acre from 76 bushels pn an estimated 4.6 million acres being harvested. ;;;' Kansas farmers also are expect- pd to reap a record corn harvest.

Tomorrow's Headlines 825-6OOO Category $006 (Call after 7:30 p.m.) DAVIS TURNER / The Salina Journal Wendell Haubeln, pastor for Trinity Lutheran Church, Is retiring after 11 years dfid will be moving to south Missouri. Haubeln is being replaced by Pastor Bob Schaedel of Manhattan. The Last Sermon Trinity Lutheran Church's pastor will miss his Salina flock By GARY DEMUTH The Salina Journal W endell Haubein has 1,250 reasons why he'll miss being pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church, 10th and Crawford. There are 1,250 people in his congrega- . tion, and it's hard for Haubein to think about leaving them. "I'll miss all the people for sure," Haubein said. "As their pastor, I've been involved with them during both the happy and sad times in their lives. When you go through a lot together, you become very close." Haubein has been at Trinity for 11 years, serving the last six as senior pastor. He informed the congregation two years ago that he was planning to retire in 1996. Now that the day is here, he's been trying to decide what to say in his final sermon. "I don't really plan to make it a farewell sermon," Haubein said. Haubein will preach for the last time at the church during three services at 8:30 and 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday. For congregation member Betty Groves, it will be a sad day indeed. "I remember his first sermon, when he stated that his mission was to be a real servant of the Lord in our congregation," Groves said. "And he's certainly done that. He's been a wonderful shepherd." Haubein decided to enter the ministry only 16 years ago. Previously, he spent 23 years as an engineer and vice president at an aerospace firm in California. He enjoyed his job, but felt it wasn't challenging anymore. "I had done everything I wanted to do in engineering," Haubein said. "I had always been involved in church work, holding offices and teaching Bible classes. I figured that I might go into the church full-time after I retired. But then I got to thinking: It might be quite a few years before I retire, and my children had all left home, so why not do it now?" With the blessing of his wife, Haubein left his job and began three years of study , at the Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, Ind. "It was scary to go back tq school after being away so long," Haubein said. "Especially when I had to study Greek that first summer. There were many tunes I wanted to cry and go home." After graduating, Haubein became pastor of a church in Jefferson City, Mo. After four and a half years there, he received the call to come to Salina. "I saw great opportunities at Trinity •Lutheran," Haubein said. "I wanted the challenge of a large congregation. I wanted the chance to bring all of these people together." Haubein has accomplished much in 11 years. He began numerous Bible classes and educational programs at the church. He worked four years to develop a Health and . Family Life Board, in which members can receive advice on health, diet and drug matters, and hired a full-time parish nurse. In addition, he has conducted services at Presbyterian and McCall Manors, aided the Salina Rescue Mission and served on the Saline County Jail Advisory Board. One of the major changes Haubein spear- headed was a plan for a reorganization of the church in which the altar will be moved and the church and the fellowship center will be combined into one building. After several years of fund raising, the renovations are expected to take place next year. Haubein said that he won't be around to see most of the changes take place, but it's something that he's learned to expect from his years in the business world. "In business, things take time to come together," Haubein said. "You don't force people to do things in a hurry. You nurture and let-things take off in their own time. Often, you're not around to see your labors come to fruition." It is Haubein's practical business philosophy that helps make him such an effective pastor, said congregationalist Dick Tilgner. "He brings to the ministry a sense of business from his days as an engineer," Tilgner said. "It gives him empathy for all of us who have to work in the everyday world. He understands our problems." Haubein said that he will sell his house and move back to Missouri, but he's in no hurry. After moving, he and his wife plan to spend a lot of time visiting their two daughters, who live in Texas and Oregon, and their 14 grandchildren. "And when we're home, my wife says I'll have to get my woodworking tools out again and start building things," Haubein said. Haubein wants to continue serving the church on a part-time basis, filling in for pastors who need a helping hand. "As long as I can continue to preach and teach, I'll be happy," Haubein said. TART K-State set to open art museum Marianna Kistler Beach Museum to be dedicated Sunday in Manhattan By ADELE SHAVER The Hays Daily News MANHATTAN - If one of the key components to a good piece of art is composition, why not show the same care for design in the architecture of an art museum? Nelson Britt, director of the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University, made the point as he explained the features that went into the planning of the state's newest cultural asset. The museum will be dedicated at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in honor of a Hays woman. Ross and Marianna Beach have been major contributors to the museum construction fund. The museum, at 701 Beach Lane, is on the southeast corner of the campus between McCain Auditorium and Higinbotham Gate. The $5.8-million building has been constructed entirely through private gifts. Following the ceremony, the museum will open to the public, showcasing its inaugural exhibition with selections from the museum's permanent collection and works by Dan Mitchell and Tom Edwards. Britt was hired as the museum's director in 1992, even before the architects were selected. That unusual but increasingly well-received strategy reflected the university's desire to have the building serve its intended functions to the highest possible degree. Britt's background included 24 years as a practicing painter; 10 years in museum management; nine years as a public school art administrator; and 12 years as a public school art teacher. At his previous position, Britt was instrumental in the architectural selection process and assisted in the design of a new wing to the Greenville Museum of Art in North Carolina. His first order of business in Manhattan was to gather together, categorize and assess the university's l,100-to-l,300-piece collection. Many pieces were scattered around campus. The majority are on paper, including prints, watercolors and drawings, as well as an assortment of paintings. The treasures of the collection are the works of Kansas artists and Midwest regionalists, including John Steuart Curry and Thomas Hart Benton. Some are barely known to the general public but are known very well in museum circles, Britt said. T MUSIC Symphony expands repertoire Salina Symphony's 2nd concert will showcase songs for younger ears By SHARON MONTAGUE The Salina Journal Music from the Walt Disney movie "Aladdin" and background tunes from commercials might not seem the usual fare for the Salina Symphony. But that's what concert-goers will hear Sunday at the symphony's second concert of the season. The concert is at 3 p.m. in Sams Chapel on the Kansas Wesleyan campus. "We're expanding our programming to attract newer and larger audiences," said John Davis, executive director. "We want parents, children, students, grandparents. Our emphasis is on young audiences, and parents spending quality time with kids." The time of the concerts also has been changed from Monday nights to Sunday afternoons to attract a larger audience, Davis said. Sunday's is the first concert targeted specifically at parents and children, Davis said. The concert is targeted specifically to children in grades 3 through 6, he said, but ,1 ,•• "<' !"« - , , > , '»- - 5Sta^n|l^*^<* slngle^pnpert tickets are available for ^•Salinasymphjpny^rfQrmwricfji. ; - ' f ' '<<, f ' '•* A \ ^ ,• ,s . .'^TfejWNrtl^'PW^^ Feb/l^ajid,Apj)l'20\ . * '^-"* — " u -"^' -f Kansas Wesleyari Pijlverfl^, wpje^npeilt,' ' ber rjwsjc, performance? are .scheduled for 3 p,m, ,V$, «J0&<1& ind Mf n?h 16 atthe Sallna Art Qenilif»'$i4S ft Santa Fe, % 'P* W*B4Mon tlcke^ate $40, and sjjigie-concerttlekeje art $740' \,j1pfi : 'ad$te and fpw'for, Kansas We t 8|eyan jtuc-ents and pther 4 ^t'$iM&$ hjh'Wliopl age andypiinger; Ticket are available '' ' " all ages are welcome. Along with the "Aladdin" tunes, Davis said the musicians will perform pieces by Joseph Haydn and Aaron Copland that have been used in the last few years as background music for television commercials. Concert-goers also will be able to learn about the music being performed at the concert. As the musicians perform, they will hold out their instruments at specific times, so the audience can see the instrument making a particular sound. Before the concert, a 2:30 p.m. "pre-concert chat," is planned, to educate people about the era in which the music was written and why it was written. The chat will be in the student union, downstairs from Sams Chapel. David Lowe, a retired Bethany College music professor, and Eric Stein, the symphony's music director, will speak and answer questions. T-shirts from the symphony's "Beethoven Fun Run," and some classical music compact discs will be given away during the chat. The more people who attend the chat and the concert, the more fun it will be for both the audience and the musicians, Davis said. "We receive our excitement from the audience," said Davis, principal bassist with the symphony. "At our 40th anniversary concert last year, we had 1,200 to 1,300 people, and it was excellent. It was our best ever." Close to 400 season tickets have been sold this year, he said. Salina] leaf pickup schedule Zone! All of city, north of Ash, beginning Oct. 28.
