Groin Futures CHICAGO (AP)-Grain futures continued upward today, led by heavy demand for wheat and soybeans. Reports that Soviet representatives have made their first direct contact with U.S. government officials for the purchase of an estimated 150 million bushels of wheat brought increased buying of futures. All wheat and soybean contracts moved up to new highs for the season on the advance. Soybeans advanced more than three cents a bushel at the opening, with the May and July contracts selling at $3.00 a bushel, the first time in several years that beans have reached that level. Traders reported broad speculative buying of soybeans with offerings very light early in the Board of Trade session. Wheat was up more than three cents in early transactions but extreme gains were cut back somewhat as initial demand subsided. Corn, oats and rye followed the higher trend. Wheat was % to 2% cents a bushel higher, December $2.11 3 /4; corn % to 1% higher, December $1.22%; oats l A to % higher, December 72 cents; rye IV4 to 1% higher, December $1.54% and soybeans were 2 to 2% cents higher, November $2.88%. ing and prices fell back, some below the previous close. Car lot loadings were wheat 3 cars, corn 54, oats 2, rye none, barley 18, soybeans 82. Chicago Cash Grain CHICAGO (AP) - Wheat No 1 mixed 2 .11%. Corn No 2 yellow 1.31%-32. No oats sales.

Final Gratrr Review CHICAGO (AP)—The grain futures market reacted nervously today to conflicting reports regarding possible sales of U.S. grain to grussia. Early in the session grains advanced, wheat and soybeans sharply, on a report that Soviet representatives had made their first direct contact with U.S. government officials for the purchase of an estimated 150 million bushels of wheat. Later, prices broke after Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield, said he had no knowledge of a firm offer from the Reds to buy American wheat.

Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Bishop entered the restaurant about 8:30 p.m., ordered a dinner and began an argument. Green later entered and tried to stop the fight, according to two witnesses. Bishop reportedly turned on Green and struck him several times. Dr. Lowell Martin, who conducted an autopsy, said the victim died of a broken neck. Bishop, 39, is being held in the Mercer County Jail, awaiting formal charging by State's Atty. Glenn Appleton. Appleton said he would decide what charges would be filed when he talked with the coroner and Dr. Martin. Tom Freed, son of the restaurant owners, and Diane Rind, a waitress there, said they witnessed the family dispute and the beating of Green. Green's body was taken to the Crummy Funeral Home in Viola, where services will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. Burial will be in Farlow Cemetery in Matherville.

BURNS—Phone Monmouth 734-33*0 or Oiiice Phone 734-3331 Hiffh Moisture Appears in Illinois Corn SPRINGFIELD, 111, (AP) Most of th« Illinois com crop is carrying too high a moisture content for safe cribbing, the State Crop Reporting Service said today. Even so, dryness in Southern Illinois has caused some corn fields to catch fire. Last week's hot dry weather and continued drought this week is expected to make corn picking an important activity next week. About a tenth of the crop has been picked, about the same as last year. Soybeans are combined except for 15 per cent. Progress is two weeks ahead of last year. Pastures and hay crops continue to suffer from the dryness, especially in Southern Illinois. Though winter wheat is three- fifths sown, much of the wheat area lacks moisture for proper germination. About 93 per cent of the crop reporters found soil moisture short.
