Gale Sherman of Yates City. and his living quarters in the hospital building, on or before Nov. 1, under the terms of the board's decision. In his statement concerning the situation, Lincke said, "We become little parts of a big machine, and although an administrator is the director of the hospital, he is nothing but a cog in the operations as far as the board of directors is concerned. All policy must be approved and controlled through the board." Lincke issued to reporters present this morning, copies of the hospital board's report of its deliberations concerning the administrator, in Monday's meeting. Linked to Appointments This transcript, more than five typewritten pages, reported details of the discussion and the vote taken. Included were points that linked the board's action with the City Council's actions on board appointments at recent council meetings. Mayor Allan Walters during the past two months has been making interim appointments at each council meeting, in an endeavor to get the council to accept Roy Baynes and Michael Romano as board members to fill existing vacancies. As the interim appointments expired, from council meeting to council meeting, the mayor renewed them, by exercising his statutory power in this situation. Up to this time, however, the council has never granted permanent appointment of Baynes and Romano. The role of the two interim appointees at last Monday's hospital board meeting, as shown in the transcript of the minutes, was that Baynes presented the motion to ask Lincke's resignation as administrator, and Romano seconded. The minutes show the vote by the four board members to have been affirmative by Baynes, Romano and Miss Ethel Richardson, negative by Kenneth Critser. The board president, Ray Green, is not recorded as voting on the motion. Lincke Reviews His Work At the press conference this morning, called by Lincke, the administrator went on to say, "My only concern is better hospital and better medical care for the people of Monmouth, if the mayor can give it this is fine, but the people better wake up and find what he has to offer." Mr. Lincke reminded the reporters that he came to Monmouth Dec. 1, 1958, from Troy, Mo., succeeding George Rollo. He stated that when he took over administrative duties at the hospital there was a deficit of some $100,000 and they have a present bank account of about $95,000; during the five- year period there has been over $200,000 spent on the improvement of the plant.

Investigators have refused to comment on the report. More than a dozen persons have been questioned by state and local police since Monday night when the arsonist set fires that destroyed two lumberyards and damaged a factory.

Original draft of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation is owned by the State of New Yorfc NFO Eyes Estimate of '63 Soybeans An Inflated estimate of the 1963 soybean crop will cost farmers at least 1175 million, according to one market report* ing service. Francis L. York, president of the Farmers Market Service Inc. of Indianola, Iowa, reported to the Knox County chapter of the National Farmers Organization this week that the government's forecast of 727 million bushels is an overestimate. York said the actual crop will run under 700 million bushels, but the government forecast will depress soybean prices at least 25 cents per bushel. He pointed out that the government crop reporters rely on farmers 'eyeball" estimates. But York said, "My own trained and experienced crop reporters have personally covered the main soybean producing states, and in most areas report that unusual weather conditions cut the soybean yield below the 1962 level." Basing his ideas on last year's crop, York said this year's harvest will not fill the increasing demand for soybeans. Mrs. Leo Dykeman, secretary of the Knox County NFO Chapter, said York's service is owned and controlled by farm people, with its publications printed for their benefit.
