Two farmers were arrested in a scuffle with police Wednesday during a demonstration in which striking farmers blocked entrances to Safeway Stores Inc.'s regional distribution center in Denver. The farmers later were released when they agreed to move their tractors. Farmers encircled the center with 200 tractors when Safeway officials refused to close the center. The officials offered to place advertisements in newspapers saying they were "sympathetic" with farmers concerns, and would allow the American Agriculture movement to distribute petitions in 'Safeway stores. The farmers, who drove tractors and pickup trucks from Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska to the center, halted food deliveries to a five-state area, for only aboUt fivehouf-s Wednesday. Colorado strikers also failed in trying to get King Soopers supermarkets and Sigman Meat Co., a meat wholesaler, to close in sympathy for their cause. The Associated Grocers Of Colorado, a Denver-based wholesale grocery firm supplying about 600 independent stores in Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas and New Mexico, agreed Wednesday to support the farm strike, but also said they could not close. "We replied that we could not close our' warehouse because we felt there was a better way to support their movement," said Rodney Love, AGC executive vice president. Vandals damage redwood trees SACRAMENTO (UPI) — Personnet-of the state Department of Parks and Recreation liaye found three large redwood' trees vandalized' at Smithe Redwood State Reserve in northern Mendocino County; The department Wednesday •said unknown vandals used a , cliain saw to cut part way through, the base' of the old growth .redwoods located astride Highway 101 between .Leggett and the Mendocin (H Humboldt county line. The damage was discovered Tuesday. Because the trees stand within 50 to 150 feet of the highway, it said, they may pose a threat to highway traffic.

The lawsuit brought by the state I'^air Political Practices Commission was to open today in the chainbers of Judge J. Francis Good, 70, a retired jurist from Butte County on temporary assignment in San Francisco. Mendelsohn was nominated by President Carter to be assistant secretary of the Interior but the nomination was withdrawn aftef the FTPC sued Mendelsohn on Nov. 14. The commission said Mendelsohn "negligently or intentionally" violated campaign disclosure laws by misreporting more thap $30,0.00 in loans and contributions to his unsuccessful 1974' campaign for state controller. Seven co-defendants also were named, including campaign treasurer Melvin Swig, Mendelsohn staff aide Joan Lubamersky, campaign Worker Barbara Morrison, Ft. Bragg fish wholesaler William Grader,, Transcentury F^-pperties of San Frangisco and its president, William Chamberlain. Bodega Bay restaurant otvner Wanda Zankich and her sister, Louise Dr,pb, were named as parties to the conspiracy but they were granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for their testimony. Mendelsohn's attorneys were expected to argue that Mendelsohn should be tried separately from the others so he can receive an early trial date. Judge Good will hear defense motions and decide whether the civil case warrants a trial. "Wall on our Paint" latex.
