Corn advanced 1 cent and oats % cent. Soybean meal gained $1 a ton but soybean oil prices were irregular. Iced broilers were little changed and trade was dull.

Trade was fairly mixed in these pits, but public participation was high, apparently in the belief that Russia might again come to the United States for more feed grains and beans and meal. The weakness in the wheat pit was strongest in deferred options. There was some spreading activity involving the purchase of nearby options and sales of deferreds. Some local professionals were buying corn and selling wheat in other spreading activity.

Spokesman for Bi-State says Troupe's allegation untrue A Bi-State Transit System spokesman charged today that statements by Charles Q. Troupe last week blaming the system management for 'lie shooting of three mechanics were inaccurate and inflammatory. Troupe, who heads the *ji- State Transit Committee on Racial Equality, and who has made numerous charges that Bi-State practices racial discrimination and is poorly managed, contended that Liu: shooting of three Bi-Stalc mechanics allegedly by a maintenance employe, was the direct result of the em- ploye's inability to git satisfaction from Bi-State i-i a grievance matter. Bi-State spokesman Jack Senseny today flatly deiveci the Troupe allegation and said a management check -showed no grievance or complain' had been filed either by or against Samuel Blockton, the employe police believe did tlifc shooting last Thursday night. Senseny also said tint Troupe's statement tlv f management should have set up grievance channels i»no:Kl the fact that employes can take grievances to either union officials or to an affirmative action officer.

He added the company di'^ not know whether such in cidents might have occurred off-duty. Responding to a Troupe charge that 60-70 per cent of Bi-State employes carried guns "to protect themselves from each other," Sensenv said management found no evidence of this and he labeled the statement as "inflammatory." Scnseny said the n»iy evidence of employes carrying guns was a charge filed Announcement In order to better serve your insurance needs, Sidney Biggerstaff wishes to announce the addition of MR. R.

"We conducted a thorough review of efforts by EPA's division of public water supplies," said Board Chairman Dr. Richard S. Engelbrecht, "and I, frankly, am much impressed with their accomplishments." "Significant strides have been made in assuring Illinois citizens of constant, safe, wholesome sources of water," Dr. Engelbrecht said, "and additional programs now in planning indicate continued improvement for the future." Dr. Engelbrecht, newly elected chairman of the board, is head of the division of environmental engineering at the University of Illinois Department of Civil Engineering in Urbana. The day-long meeting at EPA headquarters here focused on training programs now offered by the agency, and proposed changes in the state's operator certification law aimed at increasing the level of competence of public water supply operators statewide. "EPA has done a particularly fine job of increasing regular inspections of water supply facilities," said Elmo Conrady, board member from Mt. Carmel. Conrady is superintendent of the Mt. Carmel Municipal Water Department. "Not only has the state division of ' public water supplies helped safeguard the public welfare in this manner," Conrady said, "but also has managed to do it in the most courteous fashion. I know that from personal experience in my own community." The number of regular inspections performed by EPA's division of public water supplies has increased nearly 70 per cent since creation of the agency in 1970, according to Division Manager John P. Anderson. EPA's division of public water supplies has arranged for a statewide network of junior college short courses in Owners spending more money for upkeep of cars earlier this summer with East St. Louis police in which it was alleged that one Bi-State bus driver pulled a gun on another driver.

Nelson is a 1956 graduate of Marquette High School. He received his BS degree from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, and his MA from the University of Toledo. Americans are spending a needless amount of m,oney on the care and maintenance of their automobiles. In fact, if the average motorist knew precisely how much it cost each year to operate his car, he would be shocked into cutting expenses. This is the finding of the National Auto Club which has conducted extensive research to determine how the nation's 88 million car owners spend their money for automotive services and supplies. The main objective of the study was to help the consumer save money on the operation of his car. The research led • to the publication of the booklet, "101 Ways To Save Money On Your Car" which contains realistic suggestions to reduce the cost of owning a car. Written by Ray Kite, one of the best known automotive economists, it contains helpful hints on improving gasoline mileage, proven ways to cut costs on engine repairs, tire, battery and accessory mir- chases, muffler and tail pipe replacements, brake service, etc. There are also spec'al sections on "How To Save Money On Car Insurance," "How To Make Tires and Batteries Last Longer," "How To Get The Best Deal When Purchasing A New or Used Car," "How To Make Your Car Look Better and Last Longer, plus many other valuable tips that could save the average car owner $c(JO annually.
