ALTON-WOOD RIVlUt UE1HAL10 COUNTLESS FAMILIES HAVE ENTRUSTED THEIR CONFIDENCE AND TRUST IN US. News of Grains Soybeans, Corn Firm CHICAGO (AP)-Wheat futures came under selling pressure in late transactions today and turned weak on the Board of Trade but corn and soybeans maintained a firm range most of the time. Pressure in wheat was understood to have included a little larger volume of hedge selling which met rather slow acceptance and induced long liquidation. Support for corn and soybeans was described as almost entirely speculative and was mainly estab- ishment of long positions. Brokers have said the trade in those commodities is linked solidly to he weather. The forecast was for continued warm into the weekend with only scattered showers indicated. Carlot receipts were: Wheat 21 cars, corn 80, barley 12, soybeans 9, no oats or rye. CHICAGO (AP)-There were no vheat or oats sales. Com No 1 •ellow 1.33; No 2 1.32%-33! No 3 1.32.

(AP)— A spokesman for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory says construction will begin this week on an 85-foot radio telescope to listen in on outer space. Dr. Frank Drake, chief of the observatory's telescope division, said the movable scope will be paired with an 85-foot telescope already in use. The instrument, expected to cost about $500,000, is to be completed early next year, he said. Associated Universities, Inc., a nonprofit organization of eight colleges, operates the observatory, which monitors radio emissions from the galaxies. It takes about 100 monarch butterflies to make up one ounce. WHO WARRANTS THIS BIG ITEM FOR 2 FULL YEARS OR 24,000 MILES? Ford, that's who—read the fine print I Some new car warranties offer you "long-term" protection on part of the car, then shortchange you with as little as 12 months' coverage on the rest—important items like springs, muffler, radiator. Not Ford. Ford's warranty* covers every part of the car—and runs for a full 2 years or 24,000 miles. It's proof of our confidence in the cars we sell.
