First National Bank Bldg. 200 W. 3rd St. Alton By ED DE MOCH CHICAGO (AP) - Wheat futures declined nearly 2 cents early on the Chicago Board of Trade today but soybeans advanced just as much. Corn prices were a shade lower but oats were mixed. Iced broilers were little changed. Soybean meal gained .50 a ton but soybean oil prices were mixed. The early loss in wheat and the gain in soybeans was trimmed within the first hour. Early selling in wheat was attributed to trade reports that mainland China will actively seek Canadian wheat. There had been some hopes that the United States might negotiate a grain sale to China. Another weakening factor was a report that Indian's grain problems were not quite so bad as first reported some weeks ago. After wheat futures had dipped 1% cents, a rally set in. Cash grain CHICAGO (AP) — Wheat No 2 soft red 1.77^n, No 2 hard red 1.74%n; corn No 2 yellow 1.30n; oats No 2 extra heavy white .80%n; soybean No 1 yellow 3.63i/4n. Soybean oil 10.02n.

INC. 501 I irol National Bank Uldg. — Alton PJj. 465-55SS Euuene R. ShulU ttrtudent Manager John i£. Greenwood Account Executive George Peterie Agency of Godfrey has become the latest member of ERA, a growing nation-wide network of residential realtors offering an electronic photo listing service to their clients, according to George Peterie, owner of the local realty firm in Godfrey. ERA stands for Electronic Realty Associates, the parent organization located in 01 a the, Kan., which originated and developed the new listing concept. As a member of the ERA network, the Agency is now linked to ERA plus ERA members across the country by direct wire. Special electronic equipment in the office of each member can transmit a photo and pertinent information of any listing to any other ERA member in the country. "The ERA system marks a real breakthrough in the real estate field", commented Peterie. "The real value of this service is that for the first time, it will enab'e people living in one part of the country to actually see photos of homes available for sale in any city they plan to move to." For people planning a move, the system works like this. After determining the size, price, and type of home prospective buyers are interested in, the local realtor feeds this information, via ERA, to another member in a specified city. The home office then places pictures of selected property on an electronic scanner that match the demands of the buyer. The scanner is capable of scanning six pictures simultaneously. Six minutes later, the interested buyers can see the finished electronic home pictures. The public is invited to see the equipment in action at an open house planned for Sept. 16. Police arrest 4 men; seize large quantity of marijuana A large quantity of marijuana — more than 500 grams — was confiscated by Alton police Sunday during the arrest of three East Alton and one Wood River man. The four were arrested after police stopped them for drinking beer while driving west in the 160\) block of Broadway shortly after 5 p.m., officers said. In the car, driven by Gregory Phillip Frieman, 21, of 116 Whitelaw Ave., East Alton, police found 14 plastic bags of marijuana. Frieman was charged with violation of the cannabis control act (marijuana possession) and with illegal transportation of an alcoholic beverage. Also charged with violation of the Cannabis control act and with drinking beer in a public place were: John Moulton, 22, of 1378 Miland Ave., and Thomas Albert Carroll, 22, of 604 Bender St., both of East Alton, and Stanley Michael Carpunky, 23 of 560 Prospect St., in Wood River.

In other police news an 18- year-old Alton youth was arrested on a charge of robbery following a purse snatching report on 7th Street Friday night. Arrested was Anthony Wayne Buford of 1928 Alby St. Buford was arrested after the purse of Ms. Beverly Cope of 305 E. 8th St., was snatched from her as she was walking along 7th Street at Alby.

Not recovered was the $13 cash which had been in the purse or a second man.

Visitation will be Tuesday Vets urged to fight together By KARREN A. MILLS MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — The gap between Vietnam veterans and older members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars is no larger than the gap between World War I and World War II veterans, an elderly veteran said Sunday. "All veterans need,to fight for themselves, and they've got to fight together to be effective," said the former Cleveland, Ohio, area farmer who asked not to be identified. "You'd be surprised how many disagreements we World War I veterans have with the boys who fought in World War II," he said. "But we've all got to work together to accomplish anything." That sence of unity was perhaps most evident Sunday evening, when the 73rd annual national VFW convention officially opened with a memorial service for all deceased veterans. "Memory is what God gave us so we can have our roses in December," said The Rev. Dr. A. Purnell Bailey, weaving his memorial address around the quotation. Some 3,000 veterans, members of the Ladies Auxiliary and their guests attended the religious memorial service, filled with pomp and ceremony and moving tribute to fallen veterans. The Bluejacket Choir from the U.S. Navy Training Center at Great Lakes, 111., provided the vocal music, giving moving renditions of Mrs. William Imes of Stockton, Calif. There are 14 surviving grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Also surviving are two brothers, William of Moro and Norman of St. Louis.

Visitation will be today at Ripperdan Funeral Home in Mulberry Grove from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be in Liberty Cemetery. Ewing "Nearer, My God, To Thee," "Sleep, Soldier Boy," "You'll Never- Walk Alone" and "America the Beautiful." "Your journey is ended ... your work is done ... sleep, soldier boy, sleep on," the a cappella choir sang just before a symbolic tribute of red, white and blue flowers was placed on a symbolic grave covered with Buddy Poppies. "Most of us truly have to lose something before we ever know we had it," The Reverend Dr. Bailey, executive secretary of the United Methodist Commission on Chaplains in Washington, D.C., said in his address. "Only those who remember with grateful hearts 'truly have their roses," he said. Despite the unity of the memorial service, young faces were not in abundance at the convention, even though many of the week's resolutions affect the young. Several of the more than 700 resolutions scheduled to come before the convention during its business sessions this week concern amnesty for draft resisters, improved veterans benefits and treatment of American prisoners of war in North Vietnam. National Commander Joseph L. Vicites has said he does not expect the VFW's traditional opposition to the amnesty issue to change. Committees began work Sunday,considering resolutions covering national security, veterans benefits, employment, Americanism and foreign affairs. Tudor LaWanda E.
