Paul Findley, R - 111., has charged that the Agriculture Department "is imposing financial sanctions upon Midwestern wheat growers" who voted against the administration's wheat program in the May referendum. Findley, of Pittsfield, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said Friday that this is being done by the department by placing a "virtual embargo" upon sales of soft red whiter wheat abroad for foreign currency. Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan are among producers of this type of wheat. Findley said in a statement: "Recent purchase authorizations issued to recipient nations specify thai lliey must buy only hard spring or winter wheat, soft white wheat or mixed wheat. Soft red winter wheat is specifically and deliberately excluded. "This is being done despite the fact that many of the importing countries would prefer soft red wheat, both because it is priced lower and in many instances better suits their needs," Findley said midwestern wheat growers want no bail-out by the government but that they do want an equal opportunity to seek foreign markets on a competitive price and quality basis with wheat growers of the Great Plains find western areas.

First Hurricane Of Season Develops at Sea MIAMI. Fla, (AP)—Hurricane Arlene, the first of the season, whipped the tropical Atlantic with winds of 100 miles an hour today, but caused little damage. She was 925 miles easl-south- easl of San Juan, P.R., a safe distance from densely inhabited islands and heavily traveled shipping lanes. One small craft reported itself in trouble north of Puerto Rico, but at last check she was being escorted to port by a Coast Guard vessel. At dawn, the Weather Bureau said Arlene was moving west- northwest at 12 m.p.h. Winds up to 100 miles per hour whirled around a small area near the center and gale force winds extended 175 miles in the northern semicircle and 75 miles in Ihe southern semicircle. "Little change in size or intensity of the storm is expected during the next 12 to 24 hours," the Weather Bureau said. Hurricane hunter planes flew into the vortex of the storm from Puerto Rico and continued observations at close range throughout the night. The storm was days away from the United States and forecasters said il was loo early to speculate on whether it would ever strike land. The hurricane grew out of a suspicious area in the central Atlantic which the Tiros weather salellite spoiled Wednesday. When a plane piloted by Lt. Pcler J. Gross of Pocahontas, Iowa, flew into the area early Friday, he found winds up to 100 miles per hour, 25 more than the minimum for a hurricane.

By KKANK CAREY Associated Press Science Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — More nuclear explosions in the atmosphere would not help significantly in the effort to build an antimissile missile, a U.S. nuclear physicist said today. "The problem is not one of developing nuclear warheads," said Dr. Ralph Lapp. "The problem is still one of ballistics and electronics. And all these problems can be pursued without atmospheric tests." Nevertheless Lapp, who worked on the -development of the first atom bomb but Is no longer associated with the government's nuclear or missile projects, said these ballistics and electronic problems would be difficult to solve. President Kennedy went even further at his news conference Thursday, saying: "The problem of developing a defense against a missile is beyond us, and beyond the Soviets, lechnically. And I think many who work in it feel that perhaps it can never be successfully accomplished." The former Nelle Wilhite, she was a daughter ol the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Wilhite. She attended the Greenfield schools and after graduation from high school here attended MacMuiray College, Jacksonville. Mrs. Doyle was a charter member of Greenfield Womans Club and the Travelers Club and in Springfield belonged to the Methodist Church, D.A.R. of which she was a past regent, active in Red Cross work and other church and civic organizations.

He had been a patient in an Alton hospital for two months. Before moving to 310 Smith Ave., East Alton, four months ago, Mr. Trent had lived for 41 years in Wood River. He came to Wood River in 1922 from Louisville, Ky., and was employed for 19 years by Illinois The President's remarks rang alarm bells in some Pentagon cii - - cles, particularly the army which has been pushing its Nike Zeus antimissile project for eight years. Views among Pentagon officials range from the Army's unflagging optimism to severe skepticism of some Defense Department scientists and officials who also believe the technical problems may be insurmountable. The debate over development of an antimissile system has quickened again with the prospects of a U.S., British and Russian treaty banning nuclear tests in the atmosphere, as well as in outer space and under water. Some critics of the agreement, military and congressional, have expressed fears the Soviet Union may be ahead of the United States in development of a defense against intercontinental ballistic missiles.
