Stale will inspect meat plants Telegraph's McdiU Service WASHINGTON — Inspection of Illinois meat- slaughtering and processing plants will now be handled by state meat inspection programs. The Agriculture Department said that the state's meat inspection programs are equal to the Federal one under provisions of the Wholesome Meat Act. As a result, the state now has full responsibility for checking the slaughtering and processing plants doing business wholly within Illinois. The certification will affect 601 intrastate plants operating within Illinois. To earn the "at least equal to" status, Ilmois had to develop a law and regulations, financing and staffing, as well as actual inspection, matching the 'Federal program conducted by USDA's Consumer and Marketing Service. Half of the state's budget for meat inspection conies from Federal matching funds supplied by C&MS. Alton Fivening Telegraph Mondny, Jnn. 4, 1H71.

The tractor-trailer rig jackknifed and avoided the southbound vehicle but the station- wagon, driven by Eclsel Singleton, 32, of Elk Grove Village, 111., and the misdirected auto collided head-on. Singleton, his \vife and three children and the three Indiana women were killed. The eight deaths made it the worst traffic crash of the three-day New Year's holiday weekend in which 431 persons died on the nation's highways. Heavy snow and blizzards from New Mexico to the G r e a t Lakes hampered driving severely during the final 24 hours of the weekend. Another head-on crash Sunday killed four persons near Needles, Calif. The Indiana crash, on inter- stale 74 near Shelbyville, was the state's worst since 1969, when two cars in a drag race struck two parked autos, killing nine persons. Earlier in the weekend, four members of the Charles Lewis family, who were burned out of their home in a fire on Christmas Eve, were killed in a car-train collision near Lake Odessa, Mich.

The move will be made since the Illinois Division of Highways closed up (he island when installing a left turn lane and signal lights al the intersection. The village had asked to have (he Island opened, bill the Division of Highways said that il would interfere with other traffic movement. However, Mayor Keasler indicated there is considerable traffic on the street, which would cause traffic tie- ups at I he west end of the Islands if the driveway was not installed.

Hy FRANK COltMIKIt Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — President Nixon, who will hold an hour-long TV-radio c o n v e r s a I i o n with four broadcast journalists tonight, says lie would be willing to have a similar session wilh representatives of the writing press. ('hailing informally wilh four reporters on New Year's Eve, Nixon said Ihe television networks already have indicated I hey would provide broadcast time for such a presidential queslion-and- answer meeting. Nixon, however, said difficulty in agreeing on which four wrMers would rep 1 :senl. news agencies, newspapers and news maga/ines might p r o v e to be an insurmountable obstacle. Tonight's broadcast will originate live from Ihe basement floor library of Ihe While House al !) EST. The idea for Hie program originated with the While House, reportedly with the aim of showing Nixon in a warm and intimate selling. A While House aide was quoted as saying: "So many people say they want lo know what Ihe Presi- tlenl is really like, we thought this was a good way lo show (hem." Another aide indicated Ihe White House is hoping the broadcasters will ask generalized questions instead of m a k i n g inquiries keyed closely to current news developments. Bui press secretary Ronald L. Xiei/Jer said no rest rid ions have been placed on lypes of questions dial may be asked or on subjects lo lie explored. lie said the program would be "a general conversation in depth and perspective on major issues before the country and the presidency." The four broadcasters who will question Nixon arc Howard K.

I must be gelling old because they both appeared in tournaments after 1 started." Oswald: "Here is a hand that helped him. George sat North and, as frequently happens in mixed pair games, look control of the bidding." Jim: "However, he took control in a rather unusual manner. After checking for aces he gave up his fine six- card heart suit and let. Caroline play Ihe slam in one of her suits." Oswald: "If he had insisted on hearts they wouldn't have won. You can't make a slam when you lose one ace and a trump trick." Jim: "Easl. won the spade lead with his ace and led the suit back in the hope thai his partner had led a singleton. Caroline won and proceeded lo play ace and another club, which she ruffed in dummy. She started after trumps and when they broke 3-2 she was home. She could enter dummy with the last high spade and discard her last three clubs on the ace, king and queen of hearts." Oswald: "II wasn't difficult lo play and il doesn't look difficult to bid but six diamonds bid and made was worlr 111 match-points out of a possible 12."
