And this industry, as it is well recognized, is one of the most efficient in the United States in making profitable use of many products that otherwise would go to waste. While these actually are byproducts of other industries, they become main products in the feeding of livestock and poultry. The very fact, however, that they are by-products limits their production to the output of the plant making the principal product. Thus, a flour mill operates to produce flour. Incidental to flour production but highly important to the profits of the mill are the millfeeds, shorts, bran and middlings, which are by-products. At the Kansas City Board of Trade where wheat is the main grain traded, prices on the millfeeds are watched religiously. The mill operates to fulfill its orders for flour, sometimes only a few days a week, sometimes seven. Obviously, when it is operating seven days it produces more millfeeds than when it is on a short schedule. Thus when mills are running heavily, they have more millfeeds to sell. Few of them have sufficient bins for long-term storage of these bulky products. The fact is, they must price them to move into market channels with higher prices when supplies are short, and lower prices when they are ample or in surplus, always of course, in response to demand. Same Situation The same situation applies to many manufacturers. Packing houses produce tankage in relation to the rate of slaughter in their plants, corn processors produce gluten feeds the same way. Distillers' and brewers' dried grains fall into the same category as do many others. An exception is soybean meal. Soybean processors produce two products, soybean meal and oil, Roderick mjm Turnbull and the meal is designed directly for feed. However, the processors seldom have storage for this product, and an effort is made to move production into market channels "off t h e stream" trade. as they say in the Thus it is with varying rates of production of the by-pro* ducts and at various locations, prices becomes the factor that channels all these items into utilization. The almost innumerable factors that determine both supply and use are commented upon weekly by the FEED MARKET NEWS put out by the Consumer and Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture at an office in Independence, Mo. The government report quotes feed prices over the nation. Paragraphs quoted directly from recent issues of this publication tell the story: "—• Demand for feed ingredients improved over the western half of the nation but was very slow in the eastern area where pastures were unseasonally good . . . Feed mixers were running generally five days. Flour mills were on six to seven day schedules. Soybean meal averaged 50 cents a ton lower as on-track supplies depressed buyers' ideas. Cottonseed meal was higher at southern production point, lower at western points to average up about $1.00 a ton. Supplies were tight in southern areas as harvest has been delayed by rains." "Wheat by-products were generally higher as feed mixers bought heavily to provide winter stocks and cattle feeding im proved slightly in western areas. Kansas City closed steady but showed a recovery from mid-week lows." "Rice bran traded in mixed trend, weaker in Texas where supply was heavy, up in Southwest Louisiana where demand took all available offerings, and steady in California." - Area To Area These examples selected di­ rectly from the market reports over recent weeks indicate how factors change not only week by week, but from area to area. Feed manufacturers use their computers to determine which of the items to buy to make up their scientifically determined feed rations. The computers take into account base cost of the by-product, the analysis on its food content, and freight charges. Under this system, all the byproducts eventually are used and they add appreciably to the value of the raw product as waste virtually is eliminated. Thus a farmer gets more for his wheat, as an example, because there always is a market at a price for the mill products. Were they wasted, wheat would be worth less. The same is true for all the other products. Essential to the system, as it is applied to all products, is the opportunity for price fluctuation. Hourly Temps. Hutchinson temps.

Cole, president of General Motors Corporation, has been granted a patent for the company's latest version of the air bag, which is designed to inflate and protect car occupants! in a collision. The device described actually consists of two bags. The larger one receives the impact of the passenger's torso, and quickly deflates so as to avoid excessive rebound. The principal feature of the invention is the small inner bag This is held near the bottom of the larger one and remains inflated for some time against the occupants' legs to keep him in a normal seated position. Cole, an engineer, started his career with the company in 1930 as a student trainee in the Cadillac Division. He was a principal developer, in the postwar period, of the Cadillac short-stroke V-8 engine, and holds a number of patents. The air bag has not yet been completely field-tested, and a company spokesman says a number of unresolved questions remain, including reliability and service life. The latest regulations of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provide that all occupants be provided "passive protection" in cars manufactured after Aug. 15, 1975. * How To Hold FALSE TEETH Securely Do false teeth embarrass you by coming loose when you eat, laugh, or talk?

Times News Service LEYDEN, The Netherlands After years of experiment and improvisation radio astronomers have been able to produce a "photograph" of a distant galaxy, as observed in radio waves, almost as detailed as those taken through the most powerful optical telescopes. The achievement has led them to believe that, with antenna systems now being built or projected, they will be able to rival photography which makes exposures at visible wave lengths. Radio emissions manifest phenomena quite different from those generating light, and such pictures should greatly enlarge man's knowledge of the universe. The first of a distant galaxy, although blurred in contrast to conventional photographs, has generated considerable excitement. It seems to confirm scientists's suspicions as to why galaxies, such as the Milky Way star system in which we reside, assume spiral forms. It was obtained with the so- called Synthesis Radio Telescope, a mile-long row of 12 identical dish antennas set along an east-west line near Westerbork in Northern Holland. The hypothesis that has gained credence is that explosive events in the core of each rotating galaxy send waves spiraling outward. Quasars Lighthouses? There is also hope that the Westerbork antenna system will resolve what is probably the chief debate in current astronomy: whether the Quasars are lighthouses marking the outermost limits of the observable universe. If they are, Quasars could help determine in what kind of a universe we live as well as the nature of its origin and its future. j The success of the Wester­ bork experiment, which some American radio astronomers consider to be revolutionary, is being used to encourage U. S. Congressional approval for the Very Large Array, or VLA, proposed for construction in the Southwestern United States. It also bodes well for the three-mile long line of eight smaller dish antennas that should, be completed near Cambridge, England, next year. They are being erected along the embankment of an abandoned railroad, with four of the antennas set on rails to vary spacing of the array. The difficulty in deriving images from radio observations lies in their long wave lengths, say scientists. The human eye and other optical systems operate effectively with diameters of less than an inch. To observe with comparable effectiveness at radio wave lengths such a device would have to be several miles in diameter. .1 ^ 601Ebsf30fh '^663-1201 / Hutchinson once-a-year CANDY SPECIAL .* I W* lbs reg.*3«o $289 tywM Steve*, FAVORITES Here's your opportunity to buy the very special Russell Stover FAVORITES at a very special price ... you'll find a select sampling of creams, nuts, caramels, miniatures, milk chocolates, dark vanilla chocolates and butter bons...

(AP) - A 14- year-old boy jailed for truancy has hanged himself in the same jail where his father committed suicide, in the same way, 10 years ago. Montgomery County Sheriff Gene Reeves said the boy, Jerome Andrew Price, was found hanging in the cell of the juvenile ward on Saturday. Reeves said the boy had tied one leg of his trousers around his neck and the other around a bar in the window. Authorities confirmed the boy's father, Julian Price, hanged himself in the same method in the same jail in 1961 while being held on a murder charge. Jerome's brother, Jay Price, 25, said their father had been accused of the murder of his mother and nephew. Aperture synthesis takes advantage of the fact that celes tial objects, as a rule, don't vary from hour to hour or even day to day, making very long "exposures" possible without blurring caused by movement. It takes the Westerbork array 48 hours to obtain a clear image Interferometry System The system depends on a technique, known as interferometry. It can be used to tell the direction from which a light wave or radio wave has come. As the earth turns so does the orientation of the antenna line toward the target area in space and after 12 hours the area has been scanned at all angles. The nature of interferome­ try is such' that, with a single antenna spacing, a series of rings, or "interference fringes." appears on the image. For this reason two of the 12 Westerbork antennas are on rails so they can be moved to alter the spacing for additional rounds of observation on the same target. The results can be displayed as contour maps of radio u> tensity or as black-and-white images analogous to photographs. The antennas began operating last year. It has been the recent imaging of the "whirlpool nebula" that has created the most exciting. This galaxy, also known as M- 51, is tilted toward the earth so that its spiral structure is symmetrically displayed. It is so distant that its light has taken 12 million years to reach earth and it covers a patch of sky no larger than one per cent of the moon's disc. When its radio contour lines are superimposed on a photographic image, the most intense radio emissions are shown to be coming from dark bands just inside the spiral arms of bright young stars. This is taken to support a proposal by C. C. Lin and his associates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that such bands mark outward moving waves of compression that help produce new stars.

The Lafayette Hill woman said she has been denied an IRS license to pursue her hobby of winemaking on the grounds that she is not the head of her household. "I'm not a woman liberationist," Mrs. Murphy said, "but I always thought of my husband and I were both heads of our family. And this is my hobby, not his." The problem is compounded by the fact that Mrs. Murphy wants to enter her product in some local contests. She said only persons who have the IRS licenses can enter the contests. "But I'm certainly not going to enter under my husband's name and pretend that he made it," she said. "What they are trying to do is make me tell a lie." Mrs. Murphy has been making wine for more than two years with IRS approval and has never run into this problem before, she said. But this time when she sent in her yearly renewal application, she got a form letter back telling her the application was rejected. The letter stated: "The infor mation furnished discloses that you are not the head of the family as explained on the form. Therefore, you are not authorized to produce wine for family use.

Javits, R-N.Y., urged union leaders Sunday to cooperate with President Nixon'? Phase 2 economic program. And he assured them that the Cost of Living Council will not veto Pay Board decisions which labor might help shape. Principal labor leaders thus far have not responded to ad ministration proposals that they participate in the new Pay Board to set policy on increases in wages and salaries. Instead, AFL-CIO President George Meany has called a Tuesday conference of he exec utive board of his organization and the heads of the indepen dent United Auto Workers and Teamsters Unions. He has said it will be to discuss what he calls discrepancies between what labor leaders were told in advance of the Phase 2 announcement and interpretations that have come since. Javits in a telegram to Meany, Leonard Woodcock, UAW president, and Frank Fitzsimmons, Teamsters chief, told them union cooperation "is critically necessary for the effective operation of the program with fairness to labor and for the autonomy of the Price Commission and the Pay Board. Changes Name PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — The name of Du Plessis Avenue in suburban East Lynne has been officially changed to Ooievaar (stork) street. Many newly married couples live and start their families along the street. Bridge was formally restored to service in the Arizona desert Sunday. The Lord Mayor of London, Sir Peter Studd, and Arizona Gov. Jack Williams hailed the reconstructed 140-year-old bridge as a symbol of friendship between England and the United States. Pigeons and Balloons A 70-foot balloon lifted Into the air after the dedication speeches, releasing 3,000 pigeons and 30,000 balloons above a parade depicting the history of the bridge. The dedication climaxed two days which included canoe and water ski races, fireworks, stunt flying and a black tie banquet for 700 which ended early Sunday morning. The town of 8,000 developed by the McCulloch Corp., on Lake Havasu on the Arizona- California line, joined in the celebration. Residents dressed in Elizabethan costumes and some stores changed their names. For example, Lake Havasu Pharmacy became the "London Apothecary." Changes- in Appearance Normal Hall, a director of the City of London Crop., which sold the bridge to McCulloch for $2.4 million, said the bridge was recognizable and said he was pleased to see it put to use. But, he noted changes in its appearance. "It has a little higher arch in the center, it's humpier," Hall said. "They left off about 50 feet at one end which was an overpass for a street on the Surrey side. "It already looks cleaner in the Arizona sun and I understand that you have sandstorms that might actually clean it more," Hall said. The five-arch, 952-foot bridge, was reassembled over a new concrete superstructure on the neck of a peninsula extending into the lake. Then a channel was dug beneath it. The bridge becomes a part of the town's main thoroughfare, leading to an airport. America, you're beautiful. You could have ignored us. The problems in this town aren't your fault. And yet so many of you have dug deep into your pockets and supported the United Way services and agencies. You're helping families you've never seen. Families you never knew.
