Linford said that while the exact extent of [he storm damage won't be known for some time, it will probably be "conservatively $1,000,000." He added he was sure it would be more at (he final tally. In addition to crop damage, Lin/ord said a survey indicated "quite a little soil erosion and inundation in sotneof the fields." He said water damage was almost as bad as hail damage in some places. Damage was bad wherever the storm hit, Linford said. "Grain and barley took it rough because it went right down and broke," Linford said. "While some of the row crops will come back, others will lose entirely," he added. Linford said seed onions and bulb onions look a lot of damage. He said some will come back but not ill of themand others A CHECK for $1,000,000, representing one-third of the cost of construction of a potato processing will be subjectiodiseasebecause plant between Nampa and Caldwell is presented by James Scliiller, left, Nampa attorney to M A of being weakened by storm dam- Peterson, general manager of the Idaho Potato Growers Association, Idaho Kails.

Saigon Probes Commie Terror SAIGON (UPI)-Police investigating a rising tide of Viet Coiig murder, maiming and kidnaping said today Communist man-and-woman assassination teams may have been moved into Saigon.

The sergeant survived--unlike four others slain in similar attacks by young girls with flowing black hair and snub-nosed pistols. In each case a man drove Ihe motorscooler on which the girl killer rode. At a hamlet northwest of The pontiff strongly defended celibacy "which the church has preserved for centuries like a shining gem" in an encyclical letter addressed to the world's Roman .Catholic bishops. The 9,500-word document, entitled "sacerdotalis coeli- bafus" ( p r i e s t l y celebacy), spoke understanding^ of the struggle priests must undergo to repress "the natural and legitimate desire to love a woman." But it said an unmarried state makes the priest closer to Christ and a better man. The document, carefullylisted current theological, historical and psychological arguments against celibacy and answered each of them in detail. He said celibacy by priests retains its full value even incur time, marked by profound change in mentality and structures." "But in ihe climate of the new ferments, a tendency and indeed an express will has emerged to urge the church to reappraise this characteristic institution of hers, which according to some has become hard and almost impossible to observe in our times and in our world." "This state of affairs is troubling consciences, perplexing some priests and young aspirants to Ihe priesthood. It is a cause ol alarm in many of the faithful," the Pope said. He said this forced him to speak out to give "new luster and strength" to the celibacy law, as he promised the Ecumenical Council when he il from debating the SEN.

It was the first personal meeting of the two anil the first get-together of a U.S. president and a Soviet premier since 1961 when John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev conferred in Vienna.

Prior to Kosygin's arrival, Russian officials agreed to discuss at the summit "substantive" questions--meaning each side was to have Ihe privilege of bringing up any subject. The Russians indicated that they were aware of items which President Johnson might want to discuss. U.S. sources, however, were ignorant on what Kosygin mighl want to put on the agenda.

Metropolitan Piman of Kutitizi and Kolomna said Svetlana was an enemy of the church "similar to ... Judas Iscariot... an enemy of his teacher and God." The metropolitan is deputy of Patriarch Alexis, head of the Russian Orthodox Church. His comments, given toa Western interviewer, were the first by a Russian church official on Mrs. Alliluyeva's defection. She previously had been the target of severe criticism in the Soviet press. The grey4earded Metropolitan said Svetlana was "hypocritical" in claiming inan American magazine articlethat she had been Baptized a member of the Russian church. Instead, he called her "a morally fallen and Impoverished woman." Charging that Mrs. Alliluyeva doesn't seem to know what religion she belongs to, flic metropolitan added 'Ihe moral Image of this woman who has sold out everything sacred for dollars can only arouse disgust and anger.'' He said the fact she received payment for her writing since defecting was enough to make other persons turn their backs on her. The late dictator's daughter left the Soviet Union to take her late husband's ashes to his birthplace in India. She went to the United States after a brief stay in Switzerland.
