Volunteer Aid Work at Research Is Open to Community Residents Many people who wish to be helpful to others, but who do not. know of anyone they can help, have a per* feet solution in membership in the Volunteer Services Program it Galeaburg State tit* search Hospital, an announcement front the Volunteer office there pointed out today, In Galesburg there is someone who wants to "receive/* the an nouncement continued. In Re search Hospital there are more than 1,650 persons who want only the gift of friendship. There are already 61 Oalesburg residents enjoying this friendship by participating in the hospital's Volunteer program, but for 1,650 this is spreading friendship "pretty thin in spots." Mrs. Florence Doyle, Volunteer Services supervisor, is seeking 57 individual volunteers to fill in some of these spots. Anyone who can just sit and talk to someone would be welcome, though spe cialized abilities are quite desira ble—such as being able to teach an art class, talk about the great books of our time, or show how to do any of the numerous kinds of handicrafts. Just to sat and talk with someone, however, may be the most important kind of what Mrs. Doyle terms "companionship therapy." In the two accompanying pictures, these Volunteer activities are illustrated. Very much a part of a volunteer's training at Research Hospital is observation of the modern methods of treatment, as in the group crafts pic ture. Mrs. Frank Hagrelius and Mrs. Hugh Hendricks, individual volunteers from Galesburg, together have served more than 2,000 hours in the Volunteer Serv ices Program. The men's art activities picture shows how volunteers as well as staff members are kept abreast of new methods and techniques as they come into practice. The volunteers pictured are representatives of units which participate as groups in the VS program here. Orientation training classes will be held for new volunteers on Oct. 10 and Oct. 15. A little bit of time and much of the abilities of volunteers are needed. The VSP announcement suggests that anyone interested caff Mrs. Doyfe at 342-4141 and ask her how to join in the volunteer service for patients at the hospital.

Call WHITH - Ml-Olli Ag«ncy Posfe Huge Surplus Of Wheat WASHINGTON (U?!> ^ The Agriculture Department reported today that government-owned and controlled stocks of surplus wheat •mounted to 1,162,615,680 bushels on June SO. The surplus grain is stored around the nation In commercial warehftuses and elevators, govern ment bins, on farms, and even in a few government-owned ships. As of June 30, the wheat was carried on federal accounts at a value of $2,328,598,684. The Surplus figures for June 30 showed a drop of about 14.5 mil lion bushels in government stocks compared with one year earlier. The value of the surplus wheat was up about $16.5 million dollars from June, 1962. Owned by Department Most of the surplus under government control on June 30 was owned by the Agriculture Department. About 80 million bushels of the total was held by the department under price support loans. Most of this wheat may go into government ownership later when the loans expire. More than a third of the wheat actually owned by the government in mid-summer was in storage in a single state—Kansas. A sepa rate department report recently showed more than 428 million bushels of, government - owned wheat stored in Kansas on July 1, Agriculture Department officials said today that total government stocks of wheat have not changed greatly since June 30. Latest available estimates put the stocks close to 1.2 billion bushels. Along with the wheat figures, the Agriculture Department reported today that its total farm surplus stockpile on June 30 was up to $7,256,551,380. This represents an increase of nearly $600 million from one year earlier,, an increase due largely to bigger government acquisitions of cotton under the price support program.

International Bankers Are Critical of U. S. Program Editor's Note: The U. S. payments deficit has been rising when it was supposed to fall. And in this last of five articles, Sam Dawson, AP business news analyst, tells why many bankers think steps to halt the dollar drain have been disappointing—and why they hope new plans being plotted may succeed. By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) -International bankers here criticize the U.S. government's efforts so far to get its accounts with other nations into better order as mostly too little and too late. But some add the hope that a recent apparent change of heart toward more cooperation with other nations still can do the trick. For two years now the United States has been struggling to save its remaining gold reserves, trim the disquieting buildup of dollars in foreign hands, keep the good name of the dollar above reproach, and at the same time fulfill all its worldwide commitments. What has it been trying? And how do bankers here think it's been doing? — More exports is a -prime goal. But dttficulties (likethe chicken: war) pile up abroad and American^ industrialists say just chanting slogans isn't enough. — Spending aboard by U.S. officials and military personnel has been cut. But most moves have netted more protests than dollars saved, while the campaigns to get allies to shoulder more of the foreign aid burden have few victories to celebrate. — Outflow of private investment is being curbed by raising interest rates at home and proposing to make purchase of foreign stocks expensive. But bank­ ers say the rate- haven't risen far enough. Morgan Guaranty Trust economists say "the virtual commitment not to go significantly further in applying restraint, at least in the near future, disarms monetary policy as a weapon against the payments deficit." And almost all bankers oppose tl * tax on buying foreign securities. — Foreign aid dollars are being earmarked for spending here. But some of this might be at the expense of getting back private dollars held abroad. — Curbs on U.S. tourist spending abroad and lures for foreign tr ': travel to America are being tried. The dollar results so far seem small. President Kennedy, plugging his tax cut proposals, sees this as increasing prosperity here. This could make U.S. investments more attractive to foreigners and Americans alike, thus bringing in more outside money and keeping more dollars at home. Financial arrangements with the International Monetary Fund should help. David Rockefeller, president of Chase Manhattan Bank, New York, applauds the move to borrow up to $50 million in gold if needed to defend the dollar. The close interlacing of the balance of payments and gold problems of the United States with the financial and economic affairs of the rest of the Western world has been tackled this week by the boards of governors of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the International Finance Corporation and the International Development Association in Washington.
