FormUt Puts In Speedy Record Aid CHICAGO - The Formfit Co. is using a versatile IBM computer to control production and inventory and to speed merchandise shipments to retailers, it was announced today by John W. Kunstadter, president. Formfit, a division of Genesco, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of foundationwear. One of its plants is located in Monmouth. According to Kunstadter, the high speed IBM 1401/1311 data processing system is the first of its type in the women's wear industry. It features unique "disc pack" information storage units, about half the size of a hatbox, which can store nearly three million characters of information. The disc packs are quickly interchangeable so that the company can maintain a pack for each of its major files. Any record on the disc can be available for processing in an average of one -fourth of a second. The interchangeable packs provide virtually unlimited random and sequential data storage. The IBM 1401/1311 system means operating economies and improved service to Formfit's 10,000 dealer customers. The computer is able to run unlimited daily checks of the entire inventory against the requirements of an average 1,000 customer orders per day. The machines provide all information needed for fast order allocation and shipment, as well as for scheduling production at five company plants. Sales "recaps" are now more readily available to Formfit salesmen. The computer will produce an up-to-the-minute breakdown «f an individual retailer's Formfit sales history. The salesman uses this information to spot dealer weakness in various lines, plan special promotions and more effectively direct his selling efforts. The equipment also handles raw and finished goods inventories, production records, payroll and billing. The 1401 computer is capable of making up to 240.000 decisions a second, operating at microsecond speed. It can read 800 punch cards per minute and perform 193,000 additions a minute. It prints out reports in both numeric and alphabetic characters at up to 600 lines per minute.

ICC Orders Embargo at Decatur On Rail Shipment of Soybeans Roseville School Election Voters Must Be Registered ANNOUNCING THE ALL NEW MOTOROLn COLOR TV The 1964 World Series can be seen in COLOR on the all new MOTOROLA COLOR TV at Benny's Tap, the Eagles or at t , , UNIVERSAL RADIO and TV CEDAR end MAIN DECATUR, 111. (AP)—An embargo on rail shipment of soybeans to this hub city of soybean processing was in effect today. The Interstate Commerce Commission in Washington said too many unemptied boxcars of beans were in and around Decatur and asked the Association of American Railroads' car service division for an embargo. The association issued the embargo to become effective at midnight Thursday night and said there would be no exceptions. The idea, it was explained, was to slow down loading of soybeans elsewhere so unloading could be caught up with in Decatur, meantime releasing cars to other areas. Takes Issue Rut one of Decatur's processors, the A. E. Staley Manufacturing Co., took issue with the ICC's COATS ALL WEATHER Solid*. pl»U« and laminates. Unlinad and yip- out lining. 8om« with ilnvti Unad. Sliaa II to 50. 'OvlaabiWa Styla Canttr* H So. f uaistry *«• contention and said the embargo was unjustified. J. E. Youngman, ICC transportation agent in Decatur for grain shipments in 32 states, said the commission's Washington office had received complaints of an acute shortage of boxcars from across the grain area. A shortage of boxcars at harvest time is a perennial problem, one rail spokesman noted, and may be somewhat more acute this year, due to a period of dry weather which speeded ripening of grain and increasingly faster harvesting methods. Tied Up in Canada One rail representative hinted that 3,000 cars of Midwestern loads may be tied up in Canada for hauling wheat to ports for ocean shipment to Russia. Particularly in central and Southern Illinois, elevator operators this fall report snarls at grain marketing points. An ICC spokesman in Washington said the embargo to Decatur was requested because "carloads of soybeans in Decatur were not being unloaded and they were piling up badly outside Decatur. The embargo was placed until the number of loads was reduced at Decatur." There was no immediate estimate of the number of boxcars involved. Tells Operations But the Staley Co., one of at least three major soybean processors in Decatur, said it was unloading around the clock and could unload within three days all the beans it had in Decatur. A statement said: "We are not causing the congestion and we do not think the other processors in Decatur are causing it. We have less grain ahead of us for unloading than we have had many times in other years. Based on the soybeans in town consigned to processors, we do not feel the embargo is justified." Chicago-based railroads generally agreed that the demand for boxcars exceeds the supply again this fall, perhaps even to a greater degree than in previous harvest seasons. An Illinois Central Railroad spokesman noted that a faster harvesting of soybeans is pinching both elevators and railroads. The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy said one of its divisions had asked for 7,200 cars and only 236 were on hand. Roads serving more northern grain growing areas, where the soybean harvest is not yet at a peak, indicated a less pressing de- man for boxcars at present.

Except Sat. 'Till 6:00 ROSEVILLE - Under a new Illinois law, residents of Community Unit School District No. 200 must be registered voters to qualify for voting at the Oct. 26 special election. At previous school elections, residents Were not required to be registered voters. Residents of the school district are eligible to become registered voters if they are citizens of the United States, 21 years of age or more, and have resided in the state one year, in Warren County 90 days, and at their present address in the school district 30 days. The county clerk of Warren County, at the court house in Monmouth, is available to register school district residents during the usual court house hours. Also, four deputy registrars at other locations are available to register voters: Duane Pratt in Berwick Township, Gene Thomas in Ellison Township, Mabel Ranney in Roseville Township, and Helen Smith in Swan Township. The Board of Education of Unit 200 is encouraging all residents of the district to determine their registration status and, if not legally registered, to promptly reinstate their voting privilege. There is no charge for registration. The special school election scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 26 is the first election in Unit 200 since the new registration law became effective in mid-August. As it will determine whether a modern high school building will be constructed in the district, the Board of Education members have stated they are hopeful that all qualified residents will vote. The 34-member Citizens' Committee which is studying the district's problems and the proposed solution has also been asked to remind residents that they must be registered. Many believe that the Citizens' Committee can be instrumental in the voter regis tration matter inasmuch as the committee is geographically rep resentative of the entire school district. In other news of the pending school election, it was disclosed Extra Fine $1.00 and $1.50 doz. MUMS All the Fall Colors 50c and 75c per doz. Nicely Arranged Vases. Reasonably Priced. Chos. S. Griffin Ph. 343-9976 919 Brown Ave. by the board that the Citizens* Committee has overwhelmingly recommended a 17-year bond re* tlrement plan. A poll taken of committee members resulted in the 17-year plan receiving IS votes, as opposed to 4 votes for a 15-year plan and six votes for a 20-year retirement schedule. The Board of Education has agreed to the 17-year bond retirement plan. The principle reasons why the 17-year plan was recommended, according to a board spokesman, is that the bonds can be sold at a lower rate of interest and, as compared to the 20-year plan, upwards of $19,000 of interest costs can be saved. Compared to the school taxes paid this year, only a nominal tax increase will be required if the high school building is approved by the district 's voters. Based upon the total assessed valuation of property in the district, approximately $25,000,000, the tax increase will average only 18.0 cents per $100 of equalized assessed valuation. This would amount to only $10.80 per year on a home assessed at $6,000 or $0.32 per acre on farm land valued at $180 per acre. Absentee ballots will be available soon for residents of the District who are incapacitated or who expect to be away on the day of the election. Applications are being received at the office of the Board of Education, at the Grade School in Roseville. Warning Is Late CHAMPAIGN, 111. (UPI) - A motorist stopped Thursday and told state trooper Carl Young that he had passed a car that was weaving along the road. The warning did not come soon enough.
