Price Debate On Soybeans WASHINGTON CAP) - Soy- beansi which in a short time have become the third most valuable American crop, are the subject of a price debate among segmCjiits of the soybean industry. ••• Sornfe groups interested chiefly in the welfare of the grower are claiming that the nonfarm end of the industry is trying to scare j farmers into dumping their 1966 crop soybeans on the market. Buf:'elements of the industry interested in maintaining large markets at home and abroad are warning growers against excessive prices, contending that liiiany buyers will turn to al- ternahve sources of vegetable oil, a primary soybean product. Francis York, a farm market adviset at Indianola, Iowa, is telling; gi-owers that they should not "run scared" because of the fact that tJiis year 's soybean crop jis estimated at a record 929 n»iIlion bushels.

He advises that growers spread marketings over the entire marketing year. But George W. Strayer, executive vice pi-esident of the American Soybean Association, wrote in the latest issue of the association's magazine that the soybean indusb'y is "walking a precarious tight rope" because of possible excessive prices. While saying farmers need better returns per acre grown to soybeans, Sti'ayer contended the way to get them is to increase tine yield per acre and not raise unit prices. Meanwhile, an Agriculture Department market report predicts that grower prices of 1966 crop soybeans will average about ?2.75 a bushel, or 25 cents more than the government support rate. It foresaw no big jump in prices near the end of the sales season such as boosted prices near the end of the 1965 crop season.

SIHEErER ALCATRAZ ISLAND, CalW. (Ap) — This sullen little island in San Francisco Bay was once a bristling fortress of tower guards and shrieking sirens. H you came closer than 200 yards — first a warning, then shots. Now its only alarm system Is Duke, a dog of many breeds, mostly collie and shepherd. A dockside microphone picks up the sound of intruders, alerting Duke, whose bai-king is then transmitted to the custodian's apartment. Where 1,576 tough convicts once lived in its 29-year history as a prison, now only three people, two men and a woman, care for its 20 rocky acres, its cracking cement and its corroding steel. Here Scarface Al Capone, kidnaper George (Machine Gun) 'Kelly, escape artist Basil (The Owl) Banghart and mass-killer William Edward Cook paced away their years. Now the sea spray and the erosion of time tread the island and its cell blocks together. Custodian of this multimillion- dollar ananchronism is John Hart, 5."^. a sturdy, soft-voiced man who use to train prison personnel, and now enjoys the Island's new serenity. His grandchildren played in what is now Duke's doghouse. Both of Hart's daughters were married in the prison chapel, one to an Alcatraz guard. Hart watches the island for the U,S. General Services Ad- mimstration. Living here with him is his wife, Marie. The soothing notes of the electric organ she loves to play are an odd contrast to sounds the island once echoed — the shots of the two-day 1946 riot in whicli three con\icts and three officers died; thp hubbub of search parties pursuing the 40 desperate convicts who, at different times, tried to escape, only to be shot down, recaptured or drowned in the Golden Gate's treacherous currents. The island's third resident is Hart's assistant, 60-year-old WLUiam Doherty, a pipe-smoking, retired seadog. He's bachelor who can whip up a tasty hamburger and provide refreshment on the portable bar^ becue and bar he has improvised from island .-^ ilvage. "This is the life," the gray haired, stocky Doherty boasts. On Aug. 3, 19&4, a presidential commission recommended building a United Nations monu ment on "The Rock." It would direct world attention to San Francisco as birthplace of the United Nations in 1945. Today, Rep. Jeffery Cohelan D-Calif., who has joined with Sen. Edward V. Long, D-Ml,, as coauthor in drafting the legislation, says: "Now we are waiting on committee reports. The word we get from the Interior Department is affairs. Find right course to follow. AQUARIUS (Jan, 21 to Feb. 19) You have to use a positive attitude in going after what you want and al .50 come out specifically with your aims — others cannot read your mind. Find new associates via the social ladder. PISCES (Feb. 20 to iMar. 20) An evening for quiet romance and finding the peace of mind with loved one which may have been impossible for some time.

We are getting a little static from the State Department." Meanwhile, life goes cm at "The Rock." Evei-y morning, a passing helicopter dips down to within 50 feet of the island. It's Lou Hurley, a newscaster on Bay area traffic conditions for radio station KGO. He drops off the morning Ciironicle. That newspaper and a radiotelephone are the islanders' contacts with the outside. Two or three times a week. Hart and his wife take their little red fiberglass power boat over to San Francisco for groceries and mail. Twice a year, a water tanker brings in 175,000 gallons of water for the water tower. That's part of the story of Alcatraz' demise as a prison in 1963. It was in need of a minimum of $5 million in repairs. And everything had to be brought over. A GSA spokesman figures it costs around $3,000 a month just to run the island now. ^EOTHERSTUn F«*th*ritun'> Hai Evtrything Yo« n*«d in th« muuc lintlll 45i - LAST TRAIN TO ClARKSVIllI REACH our HAIR ON MY CHINNY, CHIN, CHIN GO AWAY imiE GIRl CHERISH!

Victims of muscular dystrophy must be especially cautious of such minor things as even the common cold, which may prove fatal.
