S. 421 between Osgood and Versailles early in August. The 100-pound price for pigs sold at the auction was $33 89 'The previous peak price was established in July of this year at $32.90 per 100 pounds. In June, the figure was $29.35. Sold at the August sale were 2,850 pigs at a gross price of $64,066.56. The net price was $61,456.76 after deduction of fees of veterinarians. The average weight at the August sale was 63 pounds. The average price per pig was $21.56. The next feeder pig sale is scheduled for September 7. Results in the feeder auction program have exceeded the expectations at the time it was instituted a number of years ago. The auction program has had several benefits. It has encouraged the production of a higher quality of feeder pigs. Numerous areas in Southeastern Indiana do not produce corn in such abundance that it is advisable to feed the animals for the market. Higher than normal corn yields, however, are expected in this section of Indiana in 1965. Southeastern Indiana is admirably suited every year to produce feeder livestock. The auction sales have meant that Indiana hog raisers, in high corn producing areas do not have to travel too far from their homes. This has lessened the cost of transportation. And, feeder animals produced on Hoosier soil are conditioned to Indiana climatic conditions. Annually, Indiana hog raisers import feeder pigs from other states in large numbers. As a result, there is a market for the animals at auctions in Ripley County and Southern Indiana. The farm economy of Southeastern Indiana has been stimulated through the feeder auctions in Ripley County. Ceremony at Versailles— Ground Broken For Vocational School VERSAILLES.

The moon is approaching its first quarter. The morning stars are Jupiter and Saturn. The evening stars are Venus, Mars and Saturn. German writer Johann Von Goethe was born on this day in 1749. On this day in history: In 1833, the British Parliament banned slavery throughout the empire. In 1922, a New York realty company paid $100- to sponsor the first radio commercial. In 1941, Japan sent a note to the United States saying the Japanese were only interested in peace. In 1963, more than 200,000 demonstrators staged an orderly protest march on Washington against segregation. A thought for the day—German dictator Adolf Hitler said: "Mankind has grown strong in eternal struggles anc it will only perish through eternal peace."

He said if "some provisions could toe made by the court to protect them from such suits it certainly would be a God-send." Pfister put into the record the fact that Nichols and Coverdale discussed their trip to Fort Wayne before they went and that he made no recommendation on the matter. Believes Perjury Exists Later in the session, Pfister said he believed perjury had been committed in connection with testimony already made at the hearings. Bevis McCord, a wealthy Ai- fordsville farmer and personal friend of Dobich's, denied under oath previous statements by Roland Dyer, a former Dobich salesman. Dyer testified that TvicCord mentioned to Dyer's wife on the day of Dobich's burial "that the money is already on its way out of the country." 'Pfister said he "hadn't reached any conclusion" about whether the possible perjury matter should be further pursued or dropped as valueless to the investigation. John Lyst, an Indianapolis newsman, also was called to the stand Friday and questioned ' 'by Pfister as to his source for a story which firs mentioned the existence of a wealthy farmer who had made the comment about the funds leaving the country. Lyst declined to answer the questions and cited an Indians law which gives newsmen im munity under such circum stances.
