Owen Freed, 28, of 315 S. E. Fourth St. was reported "up and around" at Kewanee Public Hospital today.

The car ran out of gas Sunday night and was left overnight, and the two returned Monday about 6:45 a.m. to start it. , Freed was pouring gas into the carburetor while the other man pushed on the starter. The engine backfired and threw flaming gasoline on Freed. He was taken to the Kewanee hospital by Johnson-Gill-Schustcr ambulance. Freed is employed at Gale Manufacturing Co. in Galesburg. Acts For Nation's Farm Exports WASHINGTON (UPI) — Two Senate leaders joined today in a bipartisan demand for strong U.S. action to fight trade barriers ngainst American farm products in the European Common Market. Senate Democratic Whip Hubert H. Humphrey, Minn., and Senate Republican Leader Ever- ttt M. Dirksen, HI., drafted a resolution calling on U.S. officials negotiating with the Common Market to get assurances that "access to export markets for our agricultural products will be maintained." Humphrey, in a statement issued along with the resolution, said current disputes over agricultural exports to the Common Market "will in part determine the whole future relationship of the United States and the European Common Market." Force Sharp Declines The Wumphrey-Dirksen rcsolu tion came while President Ken nedy is in Europe on a trip which includes meetings with leaders of several Common Market conn tries. The Common Market's new agricultural policies already have forced sharp declines in the area's imports of American poultry and wheat flour. It was learned that before Ken nedy left on his trip, he was urged in a strongly worded pri vate letter from 18 senators in both parties to stress the importance of U.S. farm exports, in eluding poultry, in talks with Eu ropean leaders. Signers of the letter were re ported to include such key senators as Richard B. Russell, D- Ga., J. William Fulbright, D-Ark Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., and Thomas M. Kuchel, R-Calif.
