"Pud" Williams Tuesday told U.S. senators that the cleaning up of the nation's 'grain inspection system is vital'to'the future of farmers and the agricultural community in Illinois. Williams was testifying in Washington before a Senate Joint Committee investigating grain inspection. Attention focused on the grain inspection system recently as the result of the discovery of alleged corruption and bribery at New Orleans where much of the Corn Belt's production is sold, Further criticism of the system came in the form of complaints by countries that buy U.S.-produced grain that the product they were receiving was below standard. : Williams said the grain wasn't like that when it left Illinois farms. /"The corn and soybeans that are produced on Illinois farms are the finest quality in the world," the director said. ... But, he said, that is not -what customers are getting. The Illinois Department of Agriculture maintains overseas trading offices in Brussels, Belgium and Hong Kong. Williams said the prime complaint his people hear is about the quality of foreign matter in the grain. He said because of a history of getting low quality grain, overseas buyers adjust their bids downward. ^•"This eventually affects every farmer's pocket book in our country;" he said. Slaughter Rule On Fair Animals Still In Effect SPRINGFIELD - The Illinois State Fair regulation requiring that grand champion ^livestock be slaughtered within two months of the fair remains in effect after the defeat of a bill introduced in the state legislature last session. Fair rules require that the grand champion steer, barrow and wether be slaughtered at the University of Illinois Meat Laboratory so that the quality of their meat may be assessed scientifically. Rep. Fred J. Schraeder, D-Peoria, introduced a bill in the House of Representatives which would have allowed the governor, or his designated representative, to .suspend the slaughter rule at the request of the animal's owner, "under special circumstances." At last year's fair, Gov. Dan Walker granted just such a reprieve to the grand champion wathery which was then donated to the Lincoln Park Children's Zoo in Chicago. The House-amended version of Rep. Schraeder's bill stated that the fair could "make no rule or regulation 'requiring the slaughter of any animal in a contest or exhibition.'' The House unanimously approved this version of the bill in March; but the legislation was later defeated by the Senate Agriculture Committee, and never reached the floor of the Senate for consideration. .*" ..'.." .
