The big Kansas junior hiked his average to 21.4 while Mur- rcll, the smooth Wildcat senior, dropped to 21.8 as Unseld hit 24 at Missouri and Murrell was held to 12 by Nebraska Monday. Carey has a 19.1 average,and Price 18.9. Both would have to average well over 25 points down the five-game stretch to catch the top two. All four could surpass the 19.2 winning average of Colorado's Ken Charlton last year, when Murrell was second and Unsold third.

Solon Urges Probe of Beef Retailers WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Stuart Symington, D-Mo., urged today further efforts to reduce U.S. beef imports and government investigation of the buying practices of 'beef retailers. He said agreements announced Monday by the government for curtailment of imports from Australia and New Zealand "cannot be said to have dissolved the problem." Symington, in a prepared Senate speech, asked that imports be limited to "the lowest practical level—by negotiation il possible, otherwise by tariff commission action." He cited a recent study of retailer meat buying practices which indicates, he said, that national chain and large independent super-markets, handling about 8 per cent of total retail sales of beef, dictate prices for McWilllams to visit the meat.

Symington also reported that the chain stores "are now taking 2 to 4 weeks to pay packers for their purchases." "When many millions of dollars involved," he said, "this means a significant saving in interest costs. "The commission buyers and the packers must pay for the livestock they buy within not more than 24 hours, therefore, in effect, (they) are financing the meat operation of the chains."

Many States Don't Conform To Ruling of Supreme Court WASHINGTON (AP) - Legislative oddities pop up in many state laws governing the election of members of the House of Representatives. They show the extent to which many states do not conform to Monday's Supreme Court ruling that each member of the House should represent as nearly as possible the same number of constituents. An Associated Press survey shows that only two states- Maryland and Georgia-have moved to get in line with the high court's landmark ruling. Although there were tadiva- tlons that many federal court suits would be filed to force compliance with the "one man, one vote" ruling, officials in many states apparently were hoping to stall off action at least until next year. In Georgia and Maryland, it was a different story. The Georgia Legislature had started to work on revamping its congressional district lines before Monday's Supreme Court ruling. A final plan is expected to pass Friday night. Under Georgia's apportionment, which brought on Monday's ruling, one district has a population of only 272,000 while another bulges with 824,000. In Maryland, Gov. J. MUlard Tawes accepted a suggestion by his legislative leaders to let a joint legislative committee try to come up with an equitable redistricting plan. The Democratic governor said he would, call the General Assembly' into special session if the proposed congressional districts seem in accord with the high court's ruling. Three of Maryland's districts have populations of less than 390,000, three others have more than 600,000. In line with the court's decision, the ideal constituency would he a*»ut 408,010 for each of the 4» HO.US* based on the 1960 population. But legislative oddities under many state laws permit gigantic variances. For example, Rep. Bruce Alger, a Texas Republican, has 951,527 persons in his district. Another Republican, John B. Bennett of Michigan, has the smallest district, only 177,000. One of Arizona's three districts has a population of 663,500, more than that of the other two combined. California's 38 districts include 21 with population below 400,000 and five that exceed 500,000. The population range of Colorado's four districts is from a high of 654,000 to a low of nae.OOO. The spread in Connecticut's five districts is from 319,000 to 690,000. Florida, with 12 districts, has, carved UP the state into areas ranging from a low of 237,000 to » high of 660,000. Eagles Official To Visit Here Herschel H. McWilliams, Kansas City, Kan., newly elected grand worthy president of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, will visit the local Eagles tomorrow, it was announced by Tom Dimitt, worthy president of the Aerie. The official visit Is one of two to be made in the state. McWilliams has a long record of service in Eagledom. Active in local, state, 'and national levels, he has served as a member of the board of grand trustees and as regional president of the west central region encompassing the states of Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri. In addition to his work with the Eagles, McWilliams has served in his home town as past president of the Armourdale Business Assn., chairman of the children's Christmas party, organizer of the Three and Two. Youngsters baseball league, and president of St. Benedict's Catholic College Alumni. In his youth, McWilliams played semi-pro baseball and basketball and played one year of pro baseball in the Nebraska State League. The new Eagle chief is safety supervisor of the Board of Muni- cinal Public Utilities in Kansas Citv. The aerie will have an initiation in the honor of the grand worthy president. a least half the wheat be shipped in U.S. vessels. Hall claimed the Johnson administration had reneged on the late President John F. Kennedy's promise that at least half the wheat would be transported in American ships. He demanded that the federal government renew the pledge in writing, with the signatures of all Cabi- • net officers involved. Compounding the dispute is , the anger of Hall and Gleason at Secretary of Commerce Lu- I ther Hodges for accusing the < unions of trying to make foreign ' policy. Hall, in an interview, said : ' Hodges' statement was "the last refuge ol an incompetent." Gleason, in another interview, denied his union is trying to influence foreign policy. The labor leaders also are • angry at Hodges because the I Maritime Administration, under ' the Commerce Department, granted Continental Grain Co. a waiver permitting more than 50 . per cent foreign shipping. • Continental claimed it could • not find enough U.S. ships of the right size at the right time and place. Reynolds, who failed in an earlier attempt at a settlement, ' bogan a new round of closed; conferences. A spokesman for the maritime unions said only Johnson's personal Intervention could resolve the dispute. Gleason's longshoremen are boycotting four foreign ships scheduled for loading on the Gulf Coji st with wheat sold to tlie Soviet Union by Continental. The Continental sale involves about $75 million worth of grain. Other export licenses issued by .he Commerce Department could bring wheat sales to the Soviet Union to $400 million. The longshoremen's officials say none of it may ever get off American docks if the deadlock sn't settled on their terms. The one-and-a-half million citizens of Turkey's largest city, Is tanbul, live and work on each side of Bosphorus. Some resi- detns live in Asia and work in Europe. Shriver Is Ha«d of Anti.poverty Campaign WASHINGTON (AP)—Sargent Shriver was sworn in Tuesday as a special assistant to President Johnson to direct the ad' ministration's antipoverty cam' paign. Johnson and members of the Cabinet were on hand as Her bert Miller, White House administrative officer, administered the oath to Shriver. "Now you can officially wage war and make peace at the same tme," Johnson told Shriv er who will continue to direct the Peace Corps.
