American Team To Assess Soviet Union Grain Needs WASHINGTON (UPI) - A four-man team of American experts is scheduled to leave Friday for an on-the-spot assessment of prospects for the important Soviet spring wheat crop, Agriculture Department officials confirm. Government and trade circles, meanwhile, are awaiting reports from negotiations under way in Moscow between several private U.S. grain trade firms and Soviet officials' who reportedly are interested in buying up to 10 million tons of American corn 'and wheat for the coming year. Soviet grain crops currently are reported about 10 per cent below the initial Russian goal of nearly 216 million tons. The U.S. - on the basis of July 1 estimates - is hoping for a record corn crop of 153.6 million tons and a record wheat harvest of 59.5 million tons. More questions about the final Soviet harvest - estimated at 195 million tons of all grains by U.S. experts on July 9 Winslow Girl Will Attend National Camp WINSLOW - Joan Winter of Winslow, a nine-year member of the Le- Aqua-Na Workers 4-H Club will leave Sunday to attend the American Youth Foundation Camp Miniwanca at Shelby, Mich., for-two weeks. Joan won the scholarship, which has been given for the past year by Mrs. Edith Huffman, former Extension home economist in the county, on the basis of her 4-H record and community leadership. Camp Miniwanca on Lake Michigan, 40 miles north of Muskegon, Mich., will be celebrating its 50th year. Some 500 girls, 17 and over, from 50 states and six countries will attend classes based on physical, mental, social and religious development. Instructors, from' colleges and churches throughout the- country, will serve in camp without compension due to interest in developing today's youth. Although participants may enroll without scholarships, most will come for the first year on scholarships given by schools, churches, 4-H and YWCA. There is a three-year program and the youth attending may return and graduate from the camp. Joan is a graduate of the Lena-Winslow High School and is attending Highland Community College. Ron Martin of Lena has a scholarship from the University of Illinois for the boys' camp which follows this one. , There will be about 400 young men in this camp. The American Youth Foundation was organized and endowed in the beginning by William Danforth. - were raised by an Agriculture Department report Tuesday. It .said crop prospects west of the Volga River were improved by rains oyer the July 4 weekend, but "drought lingers and crops are suffering" in major spring wheat areas east of the Volga. An Agriculture Department spokesman said the group planned to begin work in Moscow on July 21 and to make a tour running through Aug. 8. Last summer a similar spring wheat team went to Moscow but returned ahead of schedule when Soviet officials refused to permit visits to key growing areas. The spring wheat tour is viewed as important in assessing Sovi'et grain production and potential import needs. Soviet spring grain production - which includes a big spring wheat crop - normally makes up 60 per cent or more of overall annual Soviet grain output. .Area Briefs Piano Recital Held CEDARVILLE-A piano recital was presented by Ann Hull and 18 of her music students Sunday evening at the Cedarville Evangelical Church with approximately 50 persons attending the annual event.

I • Politician's Secretary Allergic To Paper, Ink WASHINGTON (UPI) - Martin Schaller, executive secretary to District of Columbia Mayor Walter Washington, is allergic to ink and the paper it's printed on. * That's no small matter for the city government's chief clerk, who must handle the huge stacks of official documents sent to his office from the City Council every day. Schaller, 42, began having sneezing attacks about a year ago, just about the time local political campaigns were getting under way to implement the District's new home rule charter. By the time Washington was inaugurated last January as the District's first elected mayor this century, Schaller was forced to seek medical help for his sneezing and constantly stuffed-up nose. Council documents are mounting up so quickly Schaller has. ordered that the D.C. Register will start publishing weekly, instead of biweekly, beginning this month. And each time he pokes into another pile of papers, he suffers another violent sneezing'spree. "I take pills, but they're no good,", complains Schaller in a nasal voice, "I get sneezing attacks in the car just carrying this stuff around with me. It looks like I'm going to have to get allergy shots." Schaller said his physician blames his problems'on the growing pressures of working in the new government. "My doctor told me all the pressure contributes to the allergy - it kind of makes me less resistant to what paper and ink does to me," he said. Chicago Dignitaries Dedicate Topping Out Of Water Tower Place CHICAGO.(UPI) - Mayor Richard J. Daley and other dignitaries recreated the dedication of the old Chicago Water Tower Tuesday in ceremonies for the topping out of the towering Water Tower Place. The band struck up "Chicago," Daley dropped a chip of limestone into a flag-draped bucket three times and then struck it three times with a gavel. Dignitaries added oil, wine and corn to the bucket. The ceremony topped off Water Tower Place, a store and hotel complex, riising 74 stories above North . Michigan Avenue. It was done the same way historians say the cornerstone was consecrated 108 years ago for the original Water .Tower which withstood the Chicago fire. "This is a great day in the history of a great, city," the mayor said, "and brings back to us in full significance the confidence of people 100'years ago which is symbolized in the historic Water Tower." •""••"•••••"•••'•••^^•MEN—WOMEN "•^•—••••••——i "The Future Belongs To Those Who Prepare For It" What have YOU done about yours?
