Colorado Closeup By Cordon Gau» AP Staff Wrifar Tlie 40 acres of hunting land along the South Platte River auctioned off by the state last week for ?775 an acre almost didn't come to the state.

The Game, Fish and Parks reply, Woodward told a reporter, was that a 160-acre tract which "in public ownership. Waterfowl Habitat The land was described waterfowl habitat. Woodward said Colorado didn't include a legal description of the 160 acres and it did recommend that another tract of land could be disposed of. The Bureau of Land Management, he related, apparently misconstrued the state agency's letter. "We'll have to accept the responsibility for not being precise," the 1 commissioner told a reporter. The incident seemingly led to 'The land never was offered to us for acquisition." The BLM decided to dispose Almost a hundred years after statehood, Colorado still hasn't selected quite all of the federal land awarded to it back when it emerged from territorial status.

Testifying at an Interstate Commerce Commission hearing, she asserted the Western Pacific Railroad served moldy doughnuts, discriminated against minority group members and didn't keep equipment clean. "The cleanliness of the trains is sometimes deplorable, the stewardess on the California Zephyr testified. A roommette she was assigned was once "so filthy I had to wash down the walls before going to bed," she added. She also told of ordering coffee and doughnuts in a buffet car and said, "I couldn't eat the doughnut because it was green and moldy." After .remarking that "there is a fine line on the train as to discrimination," she said the minority group members have to wait longer than others to be served meals. Argentina Wheat on Mart Seen Deferred WASHINGTON (AP) - Agriculture Department experts say it does not seem likely Argentina will be able to re-enter the world wheat export market in a big way until next year at least. The Foreign Agricultural Service said in a report today that Argentina wheat production this year now was estimated at 5.9 million tons, compared with 7.3 million in 1968. The shorter supply has forced Argentina to import wheat for its domestic needs and enable it to meet previous export commitments. About 14 million bushels has been purchased recently from Australia, the Soviet Union, Mexico and the United States. Seeding of the 1970 Argentine crop has been completed on about 15.6 million acres, a decline of six per cent from 1969. Consequently, the report said, Argentina--considered normally among the five major world wheat shippers along with Australia, Canada, the European Common Market and the United States--is expected to be later than usual in entering the sea sonal export market. TRIBUNE WANT AD 352-0211 Air conditioning frequently does not work, except for her last trip when it "was snowing in Denver." Walter Treanor, a railroad attorney, said later that Miss Hill's teytimony "just showed what we're trying to prove: that our equipment is so old that it can't do the job, and we don't have the $10 million it takes to replace it." The ICC is holding the hearings on a petition by WP to discontinue the train. It is also considering the Southern Pacific Co.'s petition to operate the City of San Francisco only three times a week, instead of daily. WP operates the California Zephyr between Oakland and Salt Lake City, from where iHs operated to Denver by the Den ver and Rio Grande Western Railroad, and from Denver to Chicago by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. SP runs the City of San Francisco from Oakland to Ogden Utah. The train is then run to Omaha by the Union Pacific Railroad and from there to Chicago by the Chicago, Milwau kee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. Both SP and WP say they operate the passenger trains at a loss. WP asserts it loses $2.5 million a year, but the California Public Utilities Commission says the loss is only $800,000.
