Sage, 16, who has no permanent address, was arrested at 12:45 Friday morning and held for investigation. At noon yesterday Vincent Romano, police chief, filed burglary charges against him.

Sage is now being held in the city jail awaiting further action. Auction Prices at Festival Mirror Current Lower Rates MONMOUTH—This year's trend in cattle prices apparently was reflected this morning in the bidding for steers in the Warren County Prime Beef Festival auction. The 1963 grand champion steer drew a top bid of $50, which was $3 lower than last year's price, while the $49 bid for this year's reserve: champion was $5 below the $54 bid for the 1962 runnerup. Last year's better price for the reserve champion over the champion was explained by a 220- weight edge held by the heavier champion. This year, there was only a 20-pound differential between the weight of the champion and reserve champion. The ],010-pound champion Angus steer, exhibited by Wayne Wallace of Monmouth, Route 1, this morning was purchased for $505 by the Park 'N Eat Restaurant, Monmouth. Purchaser of the reserve champion steer, a Hereford weighing 990 pounds, shown by Jim Killcy of Roseville, was Warren County Farm Supply Co., for a total of $485.10. Others Sold Five Angus steers, the championship group, shown by Carolyn and Allen Martin of Alexis, drew a bid of $25.50 per hundred­ weight, with the John Morrell & Co., packing firm, paying $1,426.72 for 5,595 pounds of beef- on-the-hoof. The reserve champion group, five Hereford steers weighing 5,235 pounds and exhibited by Bonnie Martin of Little York, also went to Morrell & Co., at a top bid of $25 and $1,308.75 as the purchase price. A bid of $28 per hundredweight was high for the reserve champion Hereford steer, weighing 1,115 pounds, with Rex Miller of Little York as the exhibitor. Everett Palmer was the buyer at a total price of $312.20. Weighing 1,100 pounds, the reserve champion Angus steer shown by Janet Winbigler of Monmouth, Route 2, attracted a $28.25 top bid, with Warren County Service Co. paying $310.75 for this animal.
