Rio Club Tea Celebrates 50th Anniversary RIO — Fifty years ago today, a group of women gathered at the home of Mrs. R. C. Smith, south of Rio, to form some kind of a club. After much discussion the women, — 12 of them, — decided to form, appropriately enough, a women's club to study literature. They had considered a card club, a music club and other fields of interests but a majority favored emphasis on the literary world. Not all of the original members were present at a mammoth celebration Thursday at the Rio Presbyterian Church. There was Mrs. Ben Frankeberger, Mrs. R. C. LeHew, Mrs. Hazel Mead and Mrs. Reed Carson, all charter members. A few of the original 12 have died and some have moved to distant communities. In reviewing the group's history, Mrs. Alice Locklin pointed out an ironic twist in economics when she recalled how Mrs. Carson gave a talk on "How to Reduce the High Cost of Living." This was in 1913 a few weeks after Oct. 11 when the club was formed. From $6.75 tn $400 The club then started its financial activities with a $6.75 donation and wound up its fiscal year with a balance total of 57 cents. This year, the latest of its numerous donations for charities and civic improvements, amounted to $400, all going for the beautification of the Rio water tower.

Shuman Raps State Control For Russian Crop Failures ST. CHARLES, 111. (AP) — Charles B. Shuman, American Farm Bureau president, says the Russian crop shortages have been brought on by government regulation—not bad weather. In a speech Thursday to the Kane County Farm Bureau, Shuman, of Sullivan, 111., said: "While adverse weather conditions have been blamed for Russia's crop failures, it must be re membered that the Soviet Union has vast acreages of fertile soil with varied climatic conditions. "It seems obvious, therefore, that bad weather cannot be blamed for farm production failures over the entire country." The federation leader said there was "a far more basic reason. Declared Unhappy "It is no secret that Khru shchev has been unhappy with the steady deterioration of Rus sian agriculture Under its system of state controlled and operated farms. He has tried to apply U.S agricultural technology to the land of his country, but has left out the main ingredient of our private enterprise system, and that is the profit incentive." "Government supply - management is practiced by the Commu nists on a large scale," Shuman said. lHyiWf flfll DISTRIBUTION WW lVllLd CENTER Plumbing - Heating - Electric - Lumber - Building Supplies LUMBER 4 Mi j e$ Soufh 0 f Galesburg on Route 41 PLUMBING Ph. 342-6106 Hours _ Mon ^ through Fr . 7;30 _ 5;3o _ sat _ 7:3o _ 5;0o p h . 343-5018 Aluminum Combination WINDOWS ONLY $11.50 f ^Z ST Fiberglass Insulation 1V4" Thick - 140 Sq.

The Agriculture Department's monthly crop report Thursday, based on conditions as of Oct. 1, estimated corn production at a record 4,009,093,000 bushels and the wheat crop at 1,133,010,000 bushels. Production of both crops was held down this year by government acreage-reduction programs. The corn estimate was up 2 per cent from a month earlier and 10 per cent from last year. Wheat was down slightly from a month earlier but 4 per cent above a year ago. Despite the bigger crops, total markets for both corn and wheat during the current marketing season are greater than this year's production. Government surpluses of both grains, piled up under farm price support programs, will be cut. The department estimated that total production of all crops would go to 110 per cent of the 1957-61 average, a new all-time high, about 2 per cent above the previous record set in 1960 and tied last year. With livestock production also up this year, overall farm output is headed for the biggest figure ever in spite of a series of government production control programs. The crop report was studded with new records. This year's soybean harvest was estimated at 727,358,000 bushels, down slightly from the estimate in September but still a new annual record. The rice crop was estimated at a record-high 67,268,000 hundredweight. Sugarbeet production at 22.1 million tons is 21 per cent above last year's record crop. Sugar cane production of 13.9 million tons is another new mark. Per-acre yields of corn hit a new high of 65.9 bushels. Administration officials are moving to enlist private American exporters in a new program for selling farm surpluses abroad on long-term credit. Agriculture Department officials have scheduled a meeting in New York' on Oct. 17 to discuss details of the program with commercial exporters. The program, approved by Congress last year, authorizes sales only to friendly countries.
