Mrs. Ruth Cooper, home economist specialist of the Illinois Power Co., Galesburg, gave a talk and showed a film on heart respiration. Present hold in this year's soybean crop was discussed. For the first time, the grain trade is faced with the prospects that farmers may be pricing their grain instead of the speculators, Morris said. According to • the inside information received by the NFO headquarters from the grain pit and a personal visit by one of the national officers to the grain pit, fully substantiates the information that the grain trade now recognizes NFO as the factor in grain trading and grain prices. Morris said present buyers and processors' have now reached the point that fear of the NFO has caused them to aim their big guns at NFO. This has been ex pected, Morris observed. Personal Problems?

Policy Issues Occupy Grange as Confab Ends By JOHN ZAKARIAN Delegates to the 92nd Illinois Grange convention in Galesburg returned home Saturday after vowing to work hard on objectives dealing with local, national and international problems. The objectives came in the form of resolutions approved by some 300 delegates present at the final session of the 4-day convention. By a narrow margin Grange members turned down a resolution to approve any efforts by the federal government to sell wheat to Russia. Members said there may have been some confusion an the part of the delegates, because the question before them was in the form of a committee report, not directly on approval of selling grain to Russia. The state farm organization favored the reduction In federal spending wherever possible, including in foreign aid and the operation of a market wire service by the United States Department of Agriculture. The foreign aid program is depleting the country's gold supply and sometimes works against Americans, Grange delegates complained. "There Is al- 1963 Chevrolets ALL BRAND NEW Biscaynes Bel Airs Impalas WHILE THEY LAST-AT BIG DISCOUNTS Low Down Payment • Small Monthly Payments • No Payments Till December BIG Allowance For Your Old Car Weaver-Yemm Chevrolet 247 ft Simmons St — Opon Evening! Till 9 P.M. 343-2178 ways unspent money in such items as foreign aid appropriations and defense budget items," a resolution read. Vote Support In state matters, the Grange) voted to support open primary elections without party declaration and to urge the Illinois Legislature to meet annually. "No business would consider budgets 2% years in advance without a meeting of boards of directors," the resolutions read. The state legislature was also urged by the Grange to vote for a special education tax based on net income as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. It also commended the State Fair Board for refusing sale of liquor at the fairgrounds in Springfield and urged that persons receiving public relief be put to work, maintaining parks and road systems. Support Civil Rights On civil rights,. the Illinois Grange voted to "reaffirm our po- j sition that all citizens must have' legal protection in their.right to vote and have access to education" for minority .groups. Some Americans are still denied their constitution's rights, 100 years aft er the Emancipation Proclamation, the resolutions said. Social security tax for individual business owners should not be raised any more, Grange members agreed, because his rate has already proven to be a burden. Cost of hospital treatment has risen to the point that a person cannot afford medical therapy, the Grange complained, asking its national organization to press for an investigation of the cost of hospital care. Grange officials indicated they were satisfied with convention facilities in Galesburg and would like to come back for a third time. The state Grange held a convention here in 1954 and voted to hold its next session in Alton. Meanwhile, a number of local Granges and members won awards during the 4-day convention.
