Wheat Law Unlikely, Young Says WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. Mil ton R. Young, n-N.D., said todaj new wheat legislation is not like ly at this session of Congress, bu observed the situation may bi different next year. Young said he brought up thi question Wednesday during a closed meeting of the Senate Ag riculture Committee of which he ONE GROUP PERMALIFT - FORMFIT GIRDLES AND BRAS PRICE ONE GROUP ARTEMIS LINGERIE PRICE MYERS BROTHERS—3RD AND PIASA—DOWNTOWN ALTON is the second ranking Republi can. "There was very little interes expressed by any members in new wheat legislation this year,' Young said, "and those who did show some interest expressec several different ideas on what should be done 1 ." * Young said he planned to raise the question again at the committee's next regular meeting in two weeks but said "it almost looks hopeless at this session." He said some interest was shown about possibly putting the wheat certificate plan on a voluntary basis. Young observed that since farmers defeated the certificate plan with compulsory provisions in May, only two wheat proposals have been introduced in Congress. One would provide for a straight two-year extension of the present program while the other would include lower price supports, a sizable land retirement program and freezing government stocks to prevent them from being dumped on the market. "Apparently neither of these could get the support of a majority of the committee now," Young said.

Hewlett, auditor of public accounts, said today. There are more than 67,000 employes on all state payrolls. About 28,000 are employes of the educational institutions or of the constitutional otfleers, and are on payrolls submitted directly to the auditor for atidit and processing, ; About 21,000-of the 25,000 are paid monthly, and their warrants are due on the last working day of the month.
