COMBAT POLICEMAN—Looking much like a war combat veteran, policeman Warren Wilson, his injured eye bleeding, puffs of cigaret as he clutches his bayoneted weapon Wednesday in Birmingham, Ala. He was injured just below the eye when a bottle was thrown near him, shattering at his feet after he was called to the scene of a bombing in a Negro neighborhood. UNIFAX NFO Asks Group To Withhold Feed Grains From Mart CORNING, Iowa (AP) — The National Farmers Organization, which seeks to become a bargaining power on prices paid to farmers for their products, had its sights fixed on a new goal today. For the first time, the NFO asked its members to withhold feed grains from market If the aim is realized, the NFO, as selling agent for the members, would corner 28 per cent of the country's supply of soybeans, primarily a feed for livestock, but also used to make such foods as salad oils and shortenings. In announcing the holding action Wednesday, NFO President Oren Staley of Rea, Mo., also said a similar program was contem- JOHNS-MANVILLE INSULATION Call WHITE'S - 342-0185 Your Neighbor Says plated for corn and grain sorghum, which likewise are feed grains. But he said the initial effort would be concentrated on soy beans, with hopes of getting control of 200 million bushels of the 1963 crop and holding them for $2.75 a bushel. That is about 35 cents above the current price in Iowa, a large producing state. Staley said NFO members were asked to "hold and store" their soybeans when they are harvest ed in October and sign "letters of intent" to hold their crops in storage until NFO can bargain with soybean processors on a marketing price.

Bird 's newest structure is a three bedroom affair located on Main Street. Bird purchased the building lots from Mrs. S. W. Gooding. The property belonged to the late Mrs. Mattie Bennett before being purchased by the Goodings. Bird, whose occupation is farming, builds houses in his spare time. Last year Bird erected a three bedroom house on West Street which was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Bloomer. Previous to that he built a house on East Third Street bought by Mr. and Mrs. Arlyn Mason. Take Note of Progress It seems that the town's citizens are taking note of this progress and doing a little grooming of their own. Mr. and Mrs. Donald Cecil are engaged in extensive remodeling on their home located on the southeast corner of Second and East streets. The couple have added two new rooms, enclosed the porches, and added a new style roof. Mr. and Mrs. Richard Shenaut recently added a concrete porch with iron grille columns to their residence on East Street. Bernard Bright had constructed new concrete walks at his home on Fourth Street. The town on the whole has taken on a new appearance. It has been dressed up by removing old buildings, and the erection of new post office building on Main Street in 1961. Another improvement less no ticed is the new kitchen at the Maquon Junior High School and grade school. A former storage room was converted into a kitch en. A serving counter was con structed and a double stainless sink installed. New lights were also installed. Mr. and Mrs. Dolph Clark, cus todians, were busy during the summer refinishing floors, and painting and cleaning all the rooms prior to the opening of school late last month.

Lester Strayer, of Hudson, Iowa, secretary of the American Soybean Association, said the beans were basically a forage for livestock and practically all of the 1962 crop is in the hands of the processors. "We intend," Staley said, "to siphon from normal channels enough soybeans to make the NFO the only major seller by next spring or early summer. This goal could be reached earlier." In Chicago, Bernard P. Carey, chairman of the Board of Trade, said the NFO plan seemed to him optimistic "considering the size of their organization," but he added: "If they succeed in getting a sizeable part of the soybean crop, it would tighten up the market." NFO does not disclose the size of its membership, but says it is organized in at least 19 states.

Output of Timothy Seed Is Declining SPRINGFIELD (UPD-Produc- tion of timothy seed in Illinois— which once served as forage for draft horses—is going the same route as Dobbin. Illinois farmers have cut their harvest this year to 80 per cent of last year's crop—and 75 per cent of the 1957-61 average. The Illinois Cooperative Crop Reporting Service has estimated the 1963 crop at 1,140,000 lbs., compared with 1,485,000 lbs. in 1962. This year's acreage totaled 9,500, compared with 11,000 acres last year—and a once high of 130.000 acres in the mid 1930s. The yield this year at 120 lbs per acre is also the lowest in four years. In 1959 the yield was 120 lbs. In 1955 it was 140 lbs. by comparison. Farmers Needed Forage Lack of rain and need for forage this year forced some farmers to cut the timothy grass instead of saving it for seed. Crop experts say this year's smaller crop can't be blamed entirely on drought conditions. Rains came late this year and caused some northern Illinois counties to be declared drought disaster areas by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The crop experts say rather that the trend in timothy seed production has been downward over a number of years. Timothy seed was planted over as many as 130,000 acres in the mid 1930s when the draft horse still was an integral part of a farming operation. The seed was mixed with hay as forage for the horses but has become less and less popular as a nutrient as horse inventories decline on Illinois farms. Horse and mule inventories dropped from 80,000 animals on Jan. 1 of 1956 to 71,000 on Jan. 1 of 1960. The Crop Reporting Service officially discontinued its inventories of horses and mules on the later date after they were no longer considered principle farm animals. Timothy seed is still grown now New Windsor Man Named New Deputy NEW WINDSOR - Fred Allen of New Windsor, operator of the Standard station at New Windsor for the past three years, has been appointed by Sheriff John fl.
