Kansas State University agronomists say winter killing of wheat may run as high as 50 per cent of total crop in some counties in parts of south central and southwestern Kansas. Agronomists say damage occurred in mid-February when, after reaching into mid-80s, temperatures plunged to 10 to 15 below zero within 40 hours. There was no snow cover at the time.

By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP)-Long after Sir Winston Churchill is gone men will trudge around his memory, like scholars around a pyramid, wondering how he was put together. The ceremony for him today, giving him honorary American .citizenship at 88, is both a tribute to a man and recognition of a monument. The man and the monument were built out of many unhappy experiences. Language was his magic cement. His greatest triumph perhaps was within himself. For 65 years he searched for acceptance, starting when he was a child. His father had little time for him and, apparently, small esteem. When he was 21 his father died. Churchill regretted it for more reasons than one. Years later looking back, he wrote that he had been eagerly awaiting the day when his father would accept him as an equal. This quest for acceptance may explain much of his life: his brassiness pushiness, endless air ing of opinions, and his compul sion to dominate. They were tools he used to jimmy the door to dis tinction. They only brought him disre gard until under pressure of war the door opened and he became a cherished figure of history. His father would have had to accep him then, but probably with as tonishment. This was only one side of Churchill. While he thrilled to con- [ict, he loved life. This more :ian anything, made the contrast >etween him and Hitler look like tie difference between a wolf and shepherd. Konrad Heiden, a biographer of litler but not an admirer of his sensitivity, said Der Fuehrer was 'child of nature quite capable of frying a chop over a Stradi- arious violin." Edgar Black, one of Churchill's )iographers, said he scared his African . guides when he went vandering around the Uganda ion country with a butterfly net. He loved butterflies. Hitler went in for magic, astrology and quack doctors. One of his physicians said he aged rapidly after the war began. By the time Hitler at 56 killed him self in a Berlin bunker in 1945 he looked senile. Churchill, too civilized for quacks or magic, grew hearty on war and late hours, and nearing 69, wanted to take partiin the Normandy invasion. Only the king stopped him. He wasn't easily deterred in any direction. He got a brain concussion at 5 when he fell off a donkey. At 18 he fell 29 feet into a ravine ruptured a kidney, was unconscious three days and in bed three months. He had pneumonia severa times, suffered a bunch of broken bones when a taxi hit him in 1932 New York, and had a hernia 12 THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, April 9, 196 ne of his doctors told him pneu monia is the "old man's friend jecause it "takes them off so asily." In his memoirs Churchill aid "I made a suitable reply." He didn't put it in print. It was one of the comedies of listory when Churchill, who tried o dominate all conversations, complained that Roosevelt tried o dominate. Roosevelt had reservations ibout the ideas which bubbled out of Churchill—he said "Winston tad a hundred ideas a day and about four are good" — but the deas were part of his zeal. Another biographer, Robert Lewis Taylor, saw that same zea when Churchill painted: "A gi 'antic easel, a light blue smock and a flapping beret the size o small tent. 'In the words of one of his friends: 'He was a hell of a sight, if you know what I mean." Churchill, like his idol, Edward Gibbon, had a compassion for the loneliness of nouns and hardly ever let them go unescorted by an adjective. The nouns weren't always prime and the adjectives weren't always proper. The British philosopher, C. E. M. Joad, summed up Churchill in a sentence: "When the crisis came he turned out to be the average Englishman but the average Englishman raised to the nth degree." in operation in 1947. A stroke hit him in 1950 and another in 1953. He broke a hip in 1962 at 88. When he got pneumonia in 1943, hurch balcony for 98 years. They hired Richard Hosier, an organ builder, to tell them what jo do. Hosier dismantled the instrument. He found the skeletons of our birds, rafts of dead insects and a first-rate organ, hand-crafted 125 years ago in Germany and containing 891 wooden pipes. Hosier estimated the organ was worth at least $2000. The parishioners have decided to keep it. Near Miss By Planes SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - An American Airlines turboprop Electra with 52 passengers aboard and an F101 Voodoo jet fighter were Forced into evasive action Monday night to avoid a collision at 22,000 feet, an Air Force spokesman said today. The airliner went into a sudden plunge. The jolt shook the craft and injured five passengers, none seriously, an airline spokesman said. The airliner on the Boston-to- Detroit Flight 465, was jerked by the pilot, Capt. Mel T. Biederman of Ann Arbor, Mich., into what airline employes called "evasive action" to avoid the all-weather fighter. The Air Force spokesman said the Voodoo was based at Griffiss Air Force Base, Rome, N.Y. The near-collision occurred about five miles north of Hancock Field here. The Air Force spokesman could give no estimate of how close the planes came. "They were close," he said. Fishing Reel Radio Feature WELLSVILLE — Listeners who heard the Author Godfrey radio program Friday, April 5, heard Donald Breithaupt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Breithaupt, tell of the Thunderbird Ke-aho-ni fishing reel which he invented. Unusual in its simplicity, the fishing reel is said to be the first basic change in reels in 150 years. It level winds the line and retrieves the line, along with eliminating severe line tangle and backlash with only one moving part. The inventor has been in t h e Eastern states for several weeks now in the interest of promoting the reel. He is a resident of Farmington, N. M. TOPEKA (AP) - The Kansas Legislature stumbled over two of the last hurdles Monday in a last- lap dash for adjournment. The tumble, over the reapportionment issue and foundation financing for schools, appeared to have stalled the whole race temporarily. The trouble started when the Senate Reapportionment Committee voted to table a House measure to reapportion that body, cutting membership from 125 to 105 and giving each county a single representative. House leaders responded by ask ing Senate officials to pass the bill anyway and .indicated they will not act on Senate reapportionment until Senate action is taken on the house bill. The Senate, under court man date to reapportion, now has such a bill in the reapportionmenl committee of the House. The next move appeared to be up to the Senate today. Rep. Jess Taylor, R-Tribune, chairman oi the House committee said he hat talked to Sen. Paul Wunsch, R Kingman, chairman of the Senate committee and president pro tern of the Senate. He said Wunsch had told him the committee would meet am "either recommend it for passage or kill it." Wunsch said he has made no plans for another meeting. In commenting on the stale mate, Wunsch said if the House refuses to pass the Senate reap iupreme Court would rule within hat time that the Senate must be reap portioned on a population wrtionment bill "we will be back lere in 30 days." He said he thought the State budget requests, he said. The Senate Monday took a lonf step toward adjournment by striking its calendar and thus killing basis. The foundation plan suffered a major setback when the, House Education Committee voted 11-0 against recommending it for passage. The plan, to provide supplemental state aid to school dis- ricts in 71 counties, was contained in a Senate bill drawn after the House had twice rejected the measure. The committee action followed closely on the heels of a Senate vote tentatively approving a one- cent hike in cigaret taxes. The boost was to defray the cost of the foundation plan Whether the tax increase will stand if the House holds to its rejection of the foundation plan is unknown. Wunsch indicated additional funds might be needed for other programs including education television. The Legislature already has approved programs which will spend $1.1 million above Gov. John Anderson's 12 bills. The action meant the upper, house has completed consideration of all general legislation ex* cent for appropriation bills, school measures, amendments, reapportionment and consideration oi conference reports.
