Corn, oats futures settling CHICAGO (AP) - Wheat and soybeans futures advanced 1 cent a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade, but corn and oats futures were mostly lower today. Trade was fairly active on the opening as usual, then the pace slowed down. The buying of soybeans and wheat futures was generally influenced by improved exports, as reported by the government last week. Soybeans also attracted some buyer interest on stronger prices for soybean oil at. the cash level as well as for competing oils. The buying of wheat was also influenced by a report that Yugoslavia had committed herself to the purchase of some 100 million bushels of wheat early in 197i. Corn futures showed some strength only briefly after the opening, then some commercial selling set hi and prices eased. Oats futures also were under selling pressure from commercial interest with the nearby March option falling 2% cents a bushel at one time. After about an hour, wheat was % to % cent a, bushel higher, March 1.69%; corn was % lower to % higher, March 1.55%; oats were % to 2% cents lower, March 77 cents and soybeans were % to % cents higher, January 2.95%. 12 selected stocks Following are today's noon quotations of New York Stock Exchange issues research has indicated are widely held in the Alton area as supplied to the Alton Telegraph by Newhard Cook & Co., from its Alton branch office.

Clara Fred Koepp, Gillespie Kogene Barnstable, Carlinville By JANET STA1HAR WASHINGTON (AP) — Htt step has more shuffle, his eyes moisten with age, but Sen. Stephen M. Young, whose searing letters stirred the ire of many an Ohio constituent, still dictates diatribes in the waning days of his Senate career. At 81, Young, the oldest man in the Senate, is retiring after serving a fiery eight years in the House of Representatives and 12 years in the Senate. But the Puckerbrush Township Democrat isn't calling it quits. Young plans to practice law in Washington—where he'll spend most of his tune—and open an office hi his adopted hometown, Cleveland. "If I retired, I'd be dead hi a few years," Young said hi his office, handing out one of the last of his "Sen. Stephen M. Young" ballpoint pens. He never said he was part of the Senate's inner circle. There never was a committee chairmanship for him. His windy, pugnacious speeches caused a president few anxious moments. But Young did fashion memorable achievements in defeating two heavily favored Republican opponents for his seat: former Gov. and Sen. John W. Bricker in 1958- Young was 69 —and Robert Taft Jr., in 1964. Young's trademark was his prodigious letter writing. He never hesitated to match nasty insult for nasty insult with political foes or angry constituents. And he always delighted in handing out mimeographed copies of the letters to newsmen. One voter was a "mentally deranged female crackpot," someone else was "lower than a snake's tail in a wagon rut," and still another voter, "a lowdown skunk and liar." Young was one of the first Senate doves on the Vietnam war and he considers his most important vote the one cast for the limited nuclear test ban treaty with the Soviet- Union. His recent public battles have been over the Kent State University shootings hi which four students were killed by National Guardsmen. "Only a cruel ignoramous would take the position that those four students—not one of whom was rioting or throwing stones—deserved to be killed," Young wrote one dissenter. "Also, you are a stupid, cruel jerk." One of Young's favorite stories concerns the only time President Dwight D. Eisenhower ever spoke to him. "He called me up on the telephone about 10 p.m. one night. He kept talking about some farm project in North Dakota. He was sure we could' come to terms on it. "Finally, I managed to break' in, and told him I was Sen. Young of Ohio, not Sen. Milton Young of North Dakota. "All the President said was 'God-damn' and hung up." My Lai defendant arrested ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) - One of 10 soldiers charged in the alleged massacre at My Lai, Spec. 4 Robert T'Souvas, was among 17 persons charged with murder in the shotgun slaying of a-motorcycle rider in the hippie district here Monday night. His wife, Rebecca T'Souvas, also was arrested on a charge of occupying a "dive." Police said the shotgun slaying of Barney McSherry 21, took place in a rooming house where T'Souvas and his wife lived. Full details of the charges were not immediately made known. Officers reported that after the slaying they confiscated 18 bottles of gasoline rigged as fire bombs, a stick of dyna mite, two shotguns, seven rifles, four pistols, $3,100 in money and a quantity of drugs, In the My Lai case, T'Souvas, 21, of San Jose, Calif., specifically is charged with premeditated murder of two Vietnamese I
