Wheat Sales Could Alter Trade Policy By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)—U.S. Businessmen are looking beyond the controversial exchange of American wheat for Russian gold to the uncertain chances of further expansion of trade between the rival blocs. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is going to study the pros and cons of such a new trade policy. Americans have a lot they'd like to sell. Trade has languished for a reason familiar to private business and financial dealings anywhere: The Soviets mainly don't want to buy what we want to sell; we won't sell what they want to buy. The difference between this and an ordinary private business impasse is only partly political policy. There's also the matter of where would the Russians get the dollars we demand, since we don't want their rubles? This is answered in the case of the wheat deal by Russia's letting loose part of its large stock of gold, something we do want. We are to get either the metal or dollars bought abroad by gold — and we're glad to have those dollars removed from foreign financial markets. Trade between the Soviet Union and the United States has been hampered by: first, their lack of any great volume of export materials or products we need; second, our refusal to sell goods that could be classified as strategic, or converted to military use; third, their disinterest and lack of funds for buying the consumer goods we are willing and anxious to sell; and fourth, large sums they owe us, going back to World War II days. Our imports from the Soviet Union have varied only slightly from year to year for some time Our exports spurted inf 1960 and 1961 and then dropped again. But while there's been little interest in trade between the Soviet Union and the United States, American businessmen and Rus sians have fought trade battles on a number of world markets. The oil industry has been par ticularly vulnerable in these forays. Soviet petroleum products have shown up suddenly in number of markets in Asia and Europe, and always priced below and break-even level for U.S. private enterprise. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!

CAMBRIDGE - The Henry County Board of S'nervisors has voted to back the Henry County Convalescent Home committee in its actions toward the operation of the facility. The board supported the committee Tuesday at a meeting when Paul Mallinson of Hanna, committee chairman, said he and his committee had encountered trouble at the home. His committeemen are Melvin Magerkurth of Munson Township and Wilson De Rue of Atkinson. MalMnson told the supervisors that Ernest Barlow, superintend' ent of the home, had told the committee that he was working for the Board of Supervisors and not the committee. The committee has met with Barlow severa' times and tried to set up rules for him to go by and also rules for the head nurse, Mrs. Jean Bills, but they have not gone along with them, according to the committee. It seems that they want to run the place their way Mallinson observed. Report Rumors Members told of many rumors that have been circulating, such as a head nurse was getting per cent on all drugs she was buying in one drug store. Dana Mahaffey, Burns, stated that he believed that the drugs should he divided between the druggists throughout the county and not just one. Walter Pobanz, Colona, stated that the nurse purchased the drugs on her time. Rex McCormick, Kewanee, said that Kewanee Township does not have any patients at the home, but that the City of Kewanee has several, but he had been taking a beating by receiving calls from people stating that they are not getting food. Mallinson believes that the committee has tried to get it all settled, but has failed. Committeemen believe that there is a clash between two personalities. Reports were that Mallinson was trying to run the place, but the members of supervisors committee said that they have been backing Mallinson in whatever he has done or is doing for the betterment of the home. One supervisor stated that we will not have success out there until the manager has authority to hire and fire. Another one stated that "if you give Barlow too much rope, you would never be able to handle him." Oliver Gorham of Kewanee said this problem has been voted on before at this meeting, and that this discussion is out of line. Gates Develops New V-Belt For Automotive Industry compound, the new belt will Alpha Scouts Add Members ALPHA — Three new mem bers were enrolled in the Alpha Girl Scout Troop 79 at a meeting Monday at the Legion Hall. New members are Linda Nesbitt, Linda Cole and Maria Johnson. Calendars were given out to members to be sold. Karen Neeky and Terry Wallin were in charge of games, and Jill Allison and Becky Morland led the singing. Leader of the group is Mrs. Tony Petrovich. There are many jobs which the disabled worker can perform at peak efficiency. Gates Rubber Co. announced today in Denver, Colo., (hat It had successfully produced a new, wide angle V-belt for the automotive industry. Based on a new polyurethane transmit higher horsepower at greater ipeed and over smaller pulleys than any other belt, according to Charles C. Gates, president of the company. Gates il the world's leading producer of V-beltl, most of which have previously been fabricated with t rubber compound. Research and development of the new product has been behind cloied doore at the company's Denver headquarters for the past tlx years and pilot production will continue there, according to Vice President Charles Korsoski. No belt production is currently scheduled for the Gates Rubber Co. plant at Galesburg, which is devoted to the manufacture of hose, Korsoski said. Gates termed the new belt to be "one of the most significant developments in power transmission history." He said the new belt's capacity to run longer at higher horsepowers over smaller pulleys and with limited loss of tension is significant because of today's longer automotive warranty periods. The new Gates' Poly-Flex will eliminate much of that industry's warranty worries, he predicted. As the electrical load in automobiles continues to increase, the output of alternators also must be increased, he pointed out, and because Poly-Flex can run efficiently over smaller diameter pulleys, it permits alternators to be speeded up, thus increasing electrical output. Started in 1957 Research on this new product began in 1957 when Gates, then executive vice president of the company, told a group of research technicians what he hoped could be accomplished, based on a polyurethane that had been developed in Germany during World War II. By 1961 the basic compound had been achieved by Gates' research engineers. Charles C. Gates The testing program which followed involved 150,000 accelerated test hours in Gates' laboratories in Denver and over a million miles of road tests by the Gates test fleet operating out of Phoenix, Ariz. Gates, the nation's sixth largest rubber manufacturing company, produced the world's first V-belt in 1917 and has held a major share of the world's market since then. Its belt, hose, tires and molded rubber goods are sold by some 140,000 distributors in the United States and 110 foreign countries. The company, headquartered in Denver, has manufacturing plants in Brantford, Ont.; Mexico City; Erembodegem, Belgium; Nashville, Tenn.; Sioux City, Iowa; Huntsville, Ala., and Wichita, Kan., as well as in Galesburg.
