Real Cool Hooslcrs wondered together whether temperatures in the chilly 50s this morning were left over from spring or * forerunner of autumn. Early Ibis morning Lognns- pnrt'o temperature reading was 57 degrees. By noon, however, It had climbed Into the seven- tics. The mercury dived to 51 degrees—only 19 degrees above freezing—at Gosiien this morn- Ing and 52 at South Brtul »nd Fort Wayne ns cool Canadian air spread over Indiana. Even usually muggy Evnns- ville got a low iif 62, and the Indianapolis low of 58 was within a few degrees of un all-time record which stood for 62 years. The relief was scheduled to be * shortlived, however. Aider lows from 60 to about G5 tonight, the mercury will climb into the 80s and perhaps the 90s Thursday and the air will become more humid. The outlook for Friday wan fair and warmer. Wheat harvesting in Cass county is moving inlo high gear wilh the presence of favorable weather and yields are reported to be above average in most areas. Excessive rains apparently did| not have loo much .aftect on the wheat crop. However, ia some areas, heavy rainfall did cause some damage by knocking over Ihe stalks. Nearly all the wheat taken to the grain elevators 'is No. 2 grade- testing below 14 per cent moisture and weighing less than 00 pounds per bushel. Elevator officials said that heavy dew Wednesday morning forced farmers to delay combining until afternoon when the sun had driven the moisture from the heads and stalks. The Farm Bureau Co-op elevator at Clymers reported receiving 6000 bushels ot wheat Tuesday. The wheat received Wednesday morning had been combined late Tuesday afler the elevator had closed. | Kepnrfs 63-buslicl Yield Officials at the transport E'.e- valor company reported' the majority of the wheat they were receiving was le-sting from 13.5 In 13,9 per cent moisture and weighing about 5B pounds per bushel. Cass county extension officials said this morning that favorable reports were being received by| farmers—particularly in the west-' ern part ot the county—who had planted Dual wheat a new variety now in ils second year. Earl James, assistant county agent, said one farmer had reported a yield ot 63 bushels per acre. Most of the. Dual yield reporU were running higher than expected, James said. Heavy rainfall al this lime probably -would not affect the yields in this area, Jamas said, unless .a beating rain flattened the wheat to the point where the heads could not be picked up by the combine. Cass Soil Conservation district officials also pointed out that higher yields are being reported by farmers who were careful in the preparation of the seed bed and followed recommended fertilizer and top-drc.ssing techniques.

Tlie fair will open July 2t. The Holler Revue is presented entirely on roller skales und is entirely different from anything aver before 'presented at the local fair, the officers pointed out. Another outstanding and completely different allraclion thia year will be Genii Holler's Wild Animal show on Monday afternoon and night, July 20. This features racing ostriches and racing camels. The- ostriches situation generally was quiet and that U.N. officials were investigating Tuesday's clash. One of seven persons wounded in Tuesday's 'battling was reported today to be in "very critical condition." Reports circulated in Jerusalem that the Soviet Union was urging Syria on to further attacks on Israeli villages, but there was no official confirmation here. But the officials said il was unlikely Tuesday's 10-hour artillery duel would precipitate an all out war; observers thought it more likely Israeli troops might attack, occupy and destroy the Syrian positions Wen retire across the border inlo Israel.
