Wheat Program WASHINGTON (UP!)—Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman feels that there is little or no hope for new wheat legislation this year. He doubts there is much desire among wheat farmers for new legislation. Wheat growers turned down the administration's 1964 wheat program of strict production control and high price supports in a refer- Saddle Club to Hold Trail Ride MONMOUTH — The Warren County Saddle Club will hold a trail ride Sunday, starting at 1:30 p.m., from the east side of Monmouth Park.

The alternative to the administration program provided for price support at 50 per cent of parity (about $1'.25 a bushel) to those producers who stayed within their acreage allotments. Freeman told a news conference Wednesday that in the wake of the referendum he saw little evidence that farmers wanted a new wheat program. He said there appeared to be sharply divided editorial opinion in the big wheat producing areas, and a similar division among farmers. Feelings Reflected He said these feelings are reflected in the current attitude of Congress. He said it was his judgment that "it would be impossible to pass any kind of wheat legislation." He said city congressmen have made it clear "that they are not about to vote for wheat legislation—and we live today with the fact that over 300 congressional districts are now considered to be predominantly urban." Freeman has no plans to push new wheat legislation. But he made it clear that he will "continue to listen carefully" as to whether there is a desire among farmers for new legislation. He said the department has been studying. alternatives to the defeated program ever since the referendum. One would be. the program provided by Congress- price supports at 50 per cent of parity for producers who stay within their acreage allotments. Cite Another Plan Another alternative, which could be put into effect administratively, would be establishment of cross compliance on acreage allotments for all allotment crops before price supports would' be paid on any of the crops. That would mean that a farmer in order to collect price support on his corn, barley, or sorghum grains would have to keep within his acreage allotment on wheat. This plan also would provide for higher land diversion payments. Another alternative would permit substitution of feed grain acres for wheat acres and, vice versa, plus cross compliance. This would give the farmer considerably more flexibility in planning his feed and food grain crops.

By LEO SULLIVAN OQUAWKA — Record books in the vault of the office of Edward R. Scharf, Henderson County circuit clerk and recorder, many of which probably have not been used very much over a period of time, have been given a page-by-page check by Scharf and Mrs. Margaret Fryrear, a deputy in his office. The two undertook a check of the records to locate plats which were filed but not indexed. First in the long series of books in which the check was conducted was dated in 1841, when Henderson County was formed. In the time possible to devote to this task, a month was required. The next step, which is expected to take another month, will be to set up the plat records by sections and townships. When this is completed, Scharf related, a new index will be prepared for each township and each village. When the task is completed, the officials said, persons checking the records will know the book and page number of the recorded plats whether they are in" the books of more recent years or those going back to the start of the county. Considered Most Important There was an index available, but it was far from complete, Scharf said. It appeared that only plats which apparently considered the most important were indexed, with most of them in villages and even then the index was not complete. Henderson County territory originally was part of Warren County, which was created in 1825. It was on Jan. 20, 1841, that the state legislature set up Henderson County and that was the year in which records in the recorder's office came into existence. Although the earlier records are some 122 years old, they remained in good condition. The hand-written records still are legible, some more so than others. The difference in legibility for the most part was due to vari- ANCIENT HISTORY—Edward R. Scharf, Henderson County circuit clcrkandrecorder, and Mrs. Margaret Fryrear, his deputy, are shown with record books, dating back to the county's beginning in 1841, which they checked page-by-page. Proper indexing of plats was the object of their work. ations in penmanship rather than to the ravages of age. Some of the books were made up of blue pages, making the reading of the writing in ink a bit more difficult than on the white pages used in most of the books. .Scharf and his deputy found non-indexed plats not only in the deed records, but also in mortgage, . miscellaneous and chancery records. Held Under Lock One book in Scharf's office, not related to deed or plat records, but also dating back to the start of the county, is kept under lock and key. It is the court docket of Stephen A. Douglas, first circuit judge of Henderson County. Due to its condition, it would be possible for souvenir hunters to pilfer pages from it and for this reason, it was indicated, it is given added protection. j % Altrusa Club Seats Officers MONMOUTH — Officers were installed at the Monday meeting of the Altrusa Club, held in the Elks' building.
