D*e. 17, 1144 Glob«-G«z«H«, Mtion City, U. DeGaulle grain victory is a threat to exports from U.S. BONN, Germany (AP) — Charles de Gaulle's victory this week on the bread-and-butter issue of European farm policy raises a threat to U.S. exports of grain. Officials are now at work on a system of farm prices, subsidies and import duties that will strengthen the French position as Western Europe's leading supplier. That could elbow out American exports. Halleck to keep House leadership WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Charles A. Halleck's continued rule as head of House Rcpubli cans seemed assured Thursday as the party's depleted ranks went home after their first post- election conference. The matter of whether the Indianan should be replaced as part of a move to give the party a new image, wasn't even discussed at Wednesday's confer- once. It could be brought up at Ihe next scheduled meeting on Ihc morning of Jan. 4, the day the new Congress convenes with Hie House Republican membership almost 40 votes short of what it now is. Spokesmen for a group seek- mfi a leadership change and changes in leadership practices said privately there was no one now in sight with strength enough to challenge Hallcck. But they clung to a hope that something might happen between now and January to change the outlook. The decision on who will be floor leader in the new Congress will be made Jan. 4 along with decisions on some other matters discussed Wednesday. Major unfinished action may be a move to hnve the Republicans endorse the statement of Republican governors interpreted by many as a call for removal of Dean Burch as chairman of the Republican National Cnmmitlee. Burch was the handpickecl choice of Sen. Barry Cioldwaler, defeated GOP presidential nominee. A statement calling for ap- provni of Ihe governors' position was drafted by n group of 20 moderate and liberal Hepubli. cans. But Hep. Robert T.

The French victory came at wo night sessions of the Euro- can Common Market council t Brussels, Belgium, after De iaulle had threatened to pull ut if he did not get his way. Tht council finally agreed to et up a single system of grain rices for the six member counries: France, West Germany, taly, Belgium, Holland and .uxcmbourg.

The decision to yield was made in Bonn last month. The prices which go into effect in 1967 will still he 30 to 50 per cent higher than today's world prices. That is traditional in Europe, where governments have long kept grain prices high to insure an adequate bread supply in time of war. Now It's not bread that matters so much — Europeans no longer lean so heavily on what used lo be called the staff of life. As they grow more prosperous they consume more beef, veal, pork, butter and milk. European farm experts point out that these are all just a processed form of feed grain—and Europe's growing market for feed grain most interests the American farmer. Although the German prices will be lowered, the prices the French peasants get are going to be higher. That means more French production, on top of a .surplus that has forced the French government to sell wheat to Hed China at bargain] rales. So there will be prenur* on the West Germans to buy more French wheat. There's a difficulty at this point: French wheat is the soft variety that makes those delicious long loaves Parisians buy for immediate use. Next day you can drive nails with them. Germans like a bread that can be made into lunch sandwiches the night boforc, and the German bakers want a loaf fliat can lie on shelves for a few days and still be salable. To make that they need to mix in hard wheat from PARTY AT WHITE HOUSE — Luci^ohSSn Lakes time to chat with a small guest at a White House party fpr children.

If the Germans have to buy mnre Kronen wheat, American experts think, they'll have to feed it to the animals — and that would cut down America's share in the growing feed grain market, The United Sfatos government would have liked European prices to hi; set a good deal lower, so that there, would be no chances of increased French production. Uul there was never much possibility of thai. American officials can con sole themselves with the thought that now Western Europe is in a position to plan its production. That means it can work on a worldwide agreement for the grain trade. The United States considers this to he an essential clement in the Kennedy Round of talks to lower larriff barriers.

Mrs. Wagner saw her house n flames as she was coming 3ack with Delores from the Don D. Davis home.

Hill, 76, of Clarion, a judge in the llth District since 1946, has Describes charges for demolition WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara said Thursday atomic demolition charges are in the NATO stockpile in Western Europe and the supreme allied commander has standby plans for their use "under appropriate conditions." McNamara talked with newsmen after returning from the NATO ministerial discussions in Paris. There were reports in Paris Wednesday that such atomic demolition charges are in Germany for use if need be to block an enemy's advance through passes or valleys. ( "These are but one of a series of nuclear warheads at the disposal of NATO," McNamara said. "I think I've said publicly before, and if I haven't I'll say now, that during the past three years we have increased the stockpile of nuclear warheads on the soil of Western Europe, put there to be used by NATO, by about 60 per cent." Quincy, 111. was "not at all enthusiastic" about his running for the legislature. He said, however, he has increased his business volume 5 to 10 per cent this year. In the Nov. 3 election Burns defeated state Sen. D. C. Nolan, 1 Iowa City Republican and will represent Johnson County. Gov. Hughes referred to the case of James L.

Hughes won't support legal Iowa betting D.ES MOINES (AP) — The word was out Thursday from Gov. Harold Hughes that he will not support legislation to legalize pari-rautuel betting on races in Iowa. During a meeting of a conservation group Wednesday the governor added this new slant to his previous position that he would not veto a legal betting bill if the legislature adopted one with proper safeguards. P«ri • mutuel wagering and revenue on it that could be obtained by taxation were mentioned during a meeting of the Governor's Committee on Conservation of Outdoor Resources. When Dr. Keith McNurlen of Ames, president of the Iowa Izaak Walton League said legalized betting is a source of revenue to support conservation in California, Hughes broke in: "You might as well cease and desist from that line of reasoning because I'm not going to support the proposal." The governor made it clear that the Iowa Fair Managers Association will get no help from him in trying to get a pari-mutuel bill through the 1965 legislature. Hughes said after the meeting that he doubts the accuracy of estimates on the amount of revenue it would bring. The fair managers said it could produce $7.5 million for state purposes and up to $6 million a year for support of county and district fairs. The governor added that regardless of the amount of money raised, special interests groups would be around asking for a share of it. Soybean farmers organize own commodity group AMES (AP)—Iowa soybean farmers have organized their own state commodity group. The Iowa Soybean Association was formed and state Sen. C.
