Goal of the walk was to organize national (Hutchinson News-UPI Telephoto) and regional opposition to trans- mountain water diversion projects. Participants walked from Vail to Leadville. By RODERICK TURNBULL News Farm Analyst KANSAS CITY-AH the grain from this year's record harvests eventually can be put under roof if ths boxcars are available to move it, and if in many instances, it is stored farther away from home than usual. This is a fortunate situation for farmers and the grain trade when comparisons are made with the situation in some past years, and with conditions in other countries. In many countries — Argentina is a good example — the lack of storage space often forces the sale of grain crops with little regard for the current market. The buildup of U.S. grain storage space came when surpluses were dominating the farm scene in the 1950's and early lSWs. In each of the last few years, total grain production has exceeded anything experienced in the 1950's. This year, of course, lie September crop report indicates another new peak has been reached. Is grainmen at the Kansas C xy Board of Trade now assess ih ? year's situation, if trouble comes in handling the corn, grain sorghum, and soybean harvests, it will be because of local surpluses or boxcar shortages. If the weather is such that the harvests of all three Army Secretary Reviews Relieved Officer's Case WASHINGTON (AP) Prodded by Congress, Secretary of the Army Robert F. Froehlke is reviewing personally Lt. Col Anthony B. Herbert's file to determine whether the much-decorated officer now facing forced retirement was unjustly relieved of his com mand. Herbert claims his once- promising career was turned into a shambles after he accused two superior officers of covering up civilian atrocities in Vietnam. The Army's most-decorated enlisted man of the Korea War now spends his days as industrial operations officer at Ft. McPherson, Ga., supervising laundry services and post mortuary. Congressional sources say Froehlke's review is based on information brought to his attention only last month. The sources say this information involves documents filed by Col. Fred E. Hansard, Third Army adjutant general at Ft. McPherson, recommending that a damaging efficiency report Production Up TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Production of red meat in Kansas slaughter plants in August was down slightly from July but was well above the level a year earlier, the Kansas Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said today. It said total red meat production in August was 152,388,000 pounds compared with 152,781,000 in July and 121,994,000 in August last year. August production brought the total for the year to 1,196,431,000 pounds as against 981,075,000 in the comparable period of 1970. against Herbert "be expunged from the record" and that the case be resolved in Herbert's favor. Although Hansard's rec ommendation was made a year ago it was never acted on, the sources said. Rep. F. Edward Hebert, D- La., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, learned of Hansard's reccm mendation last month and wrote Froehlke Sept. 20 urging him to review Herbert's case. An Army spokesman acknowledged Froehlke has entered the case but refused further comment, saying an an nouncement will be made when the review is completed. Herbert's troubles began in 1969 when as an battalion commander with the 173rd Airborne Brigade he reported to his su perior officers, Brig. Gen. John Barnes and Col. J. Ross Franklin, incidents of murder and torture of Vietnamese civilians crops can proceed with a rush, it is almost inevitable that some grain will be piled on the ground at local elevators. But the hope persists here that the railroads will be able to cut into these piles rather rapidly. One basis for this hope lies in the fact that so much vacant space exists at the terminals. Roderick Turnhull About the only places where terminals are pushed for space now are Minneapolis - St. Paul and Duluth - Superior. These are both big terminals. Recent U. S. Department of Agriculture reports showed 81 per cent of Duluth's 74,928,000 bushel capacity was filled, and 57 per cent of Minneapolis - St. Paul's 116,370,000 bushel capacity. Minneapolis - St. Paul has the largest capacity of any terminal market in the United States. Kansas City is second with a capacity of 90,714,000 bushels, but the most recent USDA report shows this is only 39 per cent filled. More wheat now is stored in Kansas City than in any other city in the nation. Minneapolis - St. Paul and Duluth - Superior currently are heavy on oats, barley and rye. Because of a short wheat crop, Enid, Okla., now has in store less than 20 million bushels of grain, yet it has total capacity for 65,619,000 bushels. Enid expects to store some of the big milo crop now being harvested in the Southwest. Chicago has a storage capacity of 60,424,000 bushels, which is only 33 per cent filled. Great amounts of space are available at Fort Worth; Lincoln, Nebr.; Lubbock, Tex.; Omaha; Toledo; Wichita, Kans.; and Topeka, Kans. In total commercial grain storage capacity, Texas leads all the states with room for 809 million bushels. Kansas is second with 786 million. Other states with major storage capacity include Nebraska with 458 million, Iowa with 442 million, Minnesota with 338 m i 1- lion, Illinois with 545 million, and Oklahoma with 189 million. These figures do .not includa government bin sites or on-farm storage, but they do include country elevators. The nation's total commercial grain storage capacity is 5,702,900,000 bushels. Farm Storage Space Statisticians say it is difficult to determine just how much storage space exists on farms. Said one state statistician: "You ask a farmer how much grain storage space he has, and he will say none. You ask him where his wheat is and he will reply it is in the machine shed." However, it is reported that sales of new farm bins have been heavy this fall. Many factors determine how much grain goes into long time storage. Price of course, is No. 1. If the cash price is at or below the government loan level, the tendency is for fanners to put more of their grain under loan, hoping that they may get a higher price later on. If cash prices are above the loan, farmers naturally are more inclined either to sell or hold on to the grain themselves. If farmers utilize the loan sufficiently, this tends to tighten up on free market supplies and forces prices up to the level at which the government can sell. Farmers and the trade prefer to store feed grains, including those under the government loan, near where they may be fed. The situation, is not the same for wheat and soybeans. While all grains go into storage somewhere at harvest, they also move out in huge quantities day by day, throughout the year. Even though ample harvests are promised this fall, a major portion of the grain garnered will have been used by this time next year. Hutchinson News Monday, Oct. 4, 1971 Page 3 Weather in the News Hutchinson Churches ill/' 51th in a series on Hutchinson churches and pastors Former EUB Church The Evangelical United Brethren Church, 5th and Walnut, is an example of earlier day church architecture. Observers will find several churches around Hutchinson with this architecture. There was always the basement, brought about by building the main floor 10 to 15 steps more or less above the street. The church basement always contained Sunday school rooms. Persons who were not so sure of foot found this type of church hard to enter. Members of this church had many troubles and faced many changes of the physical church. In 1891 Rev. C. B. Kirkpatrick came up from Haven and launched the church with 27 charter members, meeting in the old courthouse. In 1893 Rev. T. H. Walt and his 18 year old son took charge. The son served as pastor for several months. There were six pastors in three years around 1895. The church has been for sale since the merger with the Methodists when Rev. C. Robert Brown became the pastor of the new group. Mr. Brown was the last EUB pastor.

(AP) Louisville residents who are careless about pollution are finding themselves faced with changes in a new kind of court established to prosecute what a judge calls "ecological criminals." Judge Glenn McDonald of the Jefferson Quarterly Court Criminal Division has set aside every Friday afternoon for cases on pollution and ecology. He described the sessions as "a court of public awareness," adding, "This court is for the people—to make them aware of the laws and to make the legislature aware of the need to enact new laws." When the court was established five months ago, most of the cases were brought by either the Air Pollution Control Board or the Board of Health. "We got more complaints on the telephone than actual," McDonald said. "People just don't seem to want to get involved." Ordinary Citizens Lately, however, ordinary citizens have gotten into the act, filing suits against individuals, groups or companies they think are polluters.

Give Loaf Of Bread to Congressmen WASHINGTON, D.C.— Every member of Congress will be well fed and get a special message in behalf of the farmer Tuesday as a result of a special effort by Congressman Keith Sebelius and the National Association of Wheat Growers. The Congressman and the Wheat Growers will deliver a free loaf of bread plus the message the farmer is receiving only three cents of the 25 cent price of a loaf of bread The effort is part of the International Day of Bread and Harvest Festival Week October 5. "We are trying to make every member of Congress aware of the vital role the wheat industry and the American farmer plays, not only in regard to agriculture but in our nation's fight against malnutrition and in our efforts to achieve world peace," Congressman Sebelius said. CONSTIPATED* DUE TO LACK OF FOOO " BULK IN YOUR DIET • What is a compact bank? It has as its goal nothing less than seeing to it that each child born in the United States is giv en an opportunity to develop to his full potential. In pursuit of that goal it would establish a nationwide network of day-care centers where the preschool children of working mothers, or those from impoverished families, would receive a wide variety of health, educational and nutritional services. No one knows how much it would cost. Before the House trimmed the number of children who would be eligible for free services—to those from families with incomes under $4,320—the administration estimated it at $20 billion a year. The Senate, which passed a similar program a few months ago, thinks it might cost $2 billion. The managers of the House bill talked vaguely of $250 million or $350 million. When the House voted to launch this new program hardly any of the members know more than the broad outlines of what they were passing. It was offered as an amendment to the Economic Opportunity Act, not as a separate bill, so there was no report from a committee explaining it, as is required with a bill and members were limited to 5-minute speeches in debating it. It was opposed by the administration and most Republicans mostly on the basis of its cost, but not entirely. "It is a question of collectivized child raising and it perverts all the traditional cultures," said Rep. Durward . Hall, R-Mo. "I see this as a long step toward the socialization of our nation." To those who remember the seven years it took for Medicare to run that course, the decade of struggle that went ito the enactment of federal aid to education, and the slow prog ress now being made by Nix on's welfare program, such speed is hard to understand. Part of the explanation lies in the procedure. A small biparti san group in the House Education and Labor Committee headed by Reps. John Brademas, D-Ind., and Ogden R Reid, R-N.Y., had been working on a bill for two years and planned to move it separately But the Senate made its version part of the antipoverty program so Brademas had to tack his hurriedly on as an amend ment so the House would have something to bargain with in conference. Part of it is that* Congress has become inured to passing bills without caring about the price. "It's not so much that we're spending $20 billion," observed an opponent of the bill, Rep. David W. Dennis, R-Ind., sarcastically, "we do that ev ery day around here." But to a greater degree the vote showed an awareness that the country is changing, that new problems have arisen and the search for solutions can't wait.

They are H. A. True Jr., Casper, Wyo., an independent oilman; and W. W. Keeler, Bartlesville, Okla., chairman of Phillips Petroleum Co. Keeler, who has headed Phillips and its international operations since 1967, grew up in the headquarters city of the company at Bartlesville, Okla. He began working full-time for Phillips while still in college. One of the architects of petroleum supply in World War II, Keeler served as chairman or member of various refining technical committees of the Petroleum Administration for War. He spent one and a half years in Mexico as project manager for construction of a new Petroleos Mexicanos Refinery to aid the war effort.

(AP) — A Santa Monica, Calif., couple were killed Saturday night in the crash of a private one-engine airplane near Macon, Mo., during a heavy rain storm. The Missouri Highway Patrol identified the couple as 35-year- old James Bratton, and a his 27-year-old wife. The patrol said the site of the crash was on a farm about four miles east of Macon, Mo. Witnesses said the small plane apparently hit the ground at a 90 degree angle. The patrol said the plane may have attempted a landing at the Macon airport. They said papers found in the aircraft indicated the Brattons were on a cross-country flight./ Federal Aviation Administration authorities were reported due to arrive in Macon today to investigate the crash, public aid for nonreligious instruction at Roman Catholic schools, O'Boyle said "public school neutrality to religion is a myth." "I believe experience shows and will increasingly show that public schools inevitably are more favorable to one or another religion," the cardinal said in a speech prepared for the John Carroll Society, a Roman Catholic laymen's organization. "Perhaps," he said, "the high court will come to recognize that public school neutrality is a myth, and that the only practicable way to maintain the burred line of separation is to allow the parents themselves to assign their fare share of the public funds allocated to education to the school of their choice."
