(AP) -Plaintive chords of a gospel song echoed through the narrow valley as friends and relatives of Brother Talmadge Ray Adkins gathered to pay their last respects Saturday. Adkins, 45, was bitten last Sunday while handling snakes during a church service. He died Thursday. Speaking from the door of a small room in Adkins' frame house, Brother Lloyd Richardson told the crowd, "We don't pretend that this will be like anything you've ever saw at a funeral." The room serves as the Jesus Church, where Atkins was the preacher. "He's done went across," Brother Richardson said. "He believed it strong enough to lay his life on it." A crowd of about 75 sat on folding chairs in the yard or stood at the top of a steep bank of a stream that runs by the house. Children played togeth er. The air was hot and humid Few tears were shed. Brother Richardson preachei salvation and read from the New Testament Book of St Mark the passage relating the words of Jesus, and they Old Ford Phone Plagues Couple ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -The telephone directory ' for STorthern Virginia carries a list- ng for "Ford, Gerald R. Hon. 514 Crown View Dr., Alexandria." But Ford got a new, unlisted number when ,he became vice president 10 months a'go, and :he telephone company later assigned his old phone number to Ihe honeymoon apartment of David and Alicia Taylor, both ball and football games with great frequency. In fact, a top sports star or team that didn't get a call from Nixon or an invitation to visit the White House had reason to .vorry. "The President is on the horn more to athletes than Jimmy ;he Greek," said one observer of Nixon. President Nixon golfed in the early days of his administration, but gave his clubs to son-in-law David Eisenhower because, he said, the game took 1 too much of his time. Nixon took advantage of breaks in the While House routine to walk across to the Executive Office Building and bowl a few frames. FORD SWIMS DAILY Ford, a football player at the University of Michigan in the 1930s, used the swimming pool at his home in suburban Virginia daily while a member of Congress and as vice president. In winter, he and his family skied. Nixon and Ford both enjoyed relaxing in front of a television set, watching a sports event. During his first term in of- terview. "The Republicans are going to be able to get their people out belter." Another Democrat indicated that if a Democratic candidate seemed slightly ahead of a Republican last week, now he would probably be even. If the Democrat was already far ahead, "it doesn't hurt too much," he said. BIGGER BENEFIT Republicans, who have been worried about sparse primary turnouts, see an even bigger benefit in the change in national mood that began in the firs' hours of the Ford presidency. "We've been in the valley,' said veteran House GOP Whip Leslie C. Arena's of Illinois "and we hope to be approach ing a peak in November." "We have a fresh Presiden who is regarded as Mr. Clean,' said Sen. John G. Tower, R Tex. "Things could turn aroum really in our favor." However, he said he still ex peels rather substantial Democratic gains, the normal tren in a midterm election for th i arty out of national power. That trend, however, wa hrcatening to become a land lide this November. A Harris Poll, issued on th day of Nixon's resignation howed Democrats as a whole n mid-July, with a 55-29 lead in voter preference for Hous ices. A margin that large couli mean loss of close to half of th 87 seats Republicans now hoi n the House, which the laven't controlled in 20 years. In the Senate, loo, wher Democrats have a current 58-4 margin, Republicans feared th loss of six incumbents whi talking gravely of hoping t hold their own. How much that changes now may depend on several factors: how long any Ford honeymoon lasts, what success the hew President has in solving economic problems, and whether he takes to the political stump to help fellow Republicans. "Therels no time tor a honeymoon." Strauss contended. 'None of the problems .have gone away, and President, Ford has the same approach to issues as President Nixon."

They were among the b.liuu lovers or the distinctive rustic music sloshing around the muddy Grant Ranch near here- more than two inches of rain had fallen by noon Saturday-during the five-day event ending Sunday night.

Lonnie Richardson, the deat man's son-in-law and Richardson's son, appeared in the door of the church. He was suffering from three snake bites he received during services " Friday night. A man appeared with a box and opened the cover. The younger Richardson reached in and took-out a copperhead. Others did likewise and soon the singers and members of Adkins' church were handling the poisonous reptiles. A tall, heavy-set woman moved as if in a trance, holding a copperhead in her hand. A grey-haired accordian player swung a large rattler high into the air, holding it by the tail. The "amens," the gospel singing and the unintelligible "speaking in tongues" were accompanied by the whirr of rattles from the snakes: "We stand on His word," the younger Richardson said, sweat running down his face. evaluation of rail and motor carrier rate bureaus as they apply to national transportation policy, Dr. Davis said.

The conference is co-sponsored by Stanford University and The Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace in cooperation with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute. was enthralled by the snake handling. A Wayne County sheriff's deputy said, "If that's what it takes to be saved, I'll just have to tell 'The Man' I'm afraid of His snakes." No one was bitten during the service. The funeral procession moved io a small cemetery at the top of a hill near Adkins 'home. At the entrance was a hand- lettered sign: "No snakes allowed in cemeterie." ."We get one or two calls a week at first," Mrs. Taylor said Saturday. "It took us a while to figure out that we had his old number. And then, this last week, boom! the phone never stops." The calls from well-wishers to the new President of the United States are "enough to drive you crazy,-- and believe me, it does," said Taylor, a postal worker. The apartment is not' far from the Ford home in this Washington, D.C., suburb. The Taylors have tried everything, short of disconnecting the phone, to escape the constant ringing. They've wrapped it in pillows, buried it under rugs and taken it off the hook. But most of the time, they answer it. Mrs. Taylor said some callers are skeptical when she tells them that Ford can't he reached at that number. "Some times I tell them that ;nere's no oFrd here unless rie's back because we're black Dersons," said "Mrs. Taylor. "Some times they just say, 'Well, tell him we're praying 'or him' or 'When you see him, give'him our congratulations'!" The Taylors have never met the Fords, but Mrs. Taylor is intrigued about the 38th President: "All his friends are so very nice on (he telephone." "Hopefully, now that Mr. Ford is the one in the White House, the calls here will stop," Mrs. Taylor said. "If not, we're just going to have to Washington Senators often during the season -- not just to toss out the ceremonial ball on opening day.

Drought Ends In Corn Belt But Too Late To Help Save Crops (CONTINUED VHOM PAGE.ONE) spondent recruited from the Detroit News. T h e terHorst-for-Ziegler switch also meant relegating Paul Miltich, Ford's congressional and . vice presidential press secretary, to a subordinate role. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS More than an inch of rain fell overnight in Grundy Center, [owa, and forecaster Paul Waitc said the drought that hit the corn belt is over. But the rain, which also fell on Kansas, Missouri and other parts of the thirsty Midwest, came too late to save many of the crops that help provide the nation's milk, meat and poultry. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will issue its next crop estimate Monday, based on figures collected before Aug. 1.

Springdale Couple Hurt In Accident SPRINGDALE -- Two persons were treated and released at Springdale Memorial Hospital following a two-car collision on Hwy. 68 east, three-tenths of a mile west of the intersec tion with Hwy. 68 business said the corn crop will be less han anticipated earlier. State agriculture officials, farmers and other industry spokesman have said that smaller crops will undoubtedly mean higher prices. "This corn is used for feed," said Lawrence Brown, pointing at the crops on his farm near Carmi, 111. "If there is a shortage of beef, ebef prices have got to go higher." : Duane Skow, the statistician in charge of the Agriculture Department's crop and livestock reporting service in Iowa, said the rain -- as much as five inches in some places -"would have been ideal a month ago. That's when the biggest damage came." Donald Barrowman of the SECOND MOVE The President's second move was to name Robert T. Hartmann as a White House counselor, meaning Hartmann no longer would' serve as Ford's staff chief -- an - assignment that reportedly had led to morale problems in the vice presidential office. Beyond this, Ford appointed a four-man panel to recommend longer-range steps aimed at creating an effective White House staff.

On the slage, they spoke to the audience in English and to each other in Flemish. The bass'was borrowed from another act because the air fare on the wife's own musical instrument would have been irohibitive. The family had to .ly to the United States, rent a mobile home and drive here, where performers and .spectators alike camp out on the ranch of Ray and Bill Grant, just north of the Red River boundary with Texas.

FLIES TO FAYETTEVILLE Nixon announced that he would fly to Fayetteville for the Texas-Arkansas 'game and give the plaque to the winner of the game. Perm State fans were furious. He gave Texas the title and predicted the wire services would' similarly recognize the team. The Associated Press did, the following week, after Texas beat Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl. To testify to his love of sports, Nixon told visitors to :he White House that he would lave liked to have been a Â·iportswriter and 'was made a member of the Baseball Writers of America. He said during half-time of the Arkansas-Texas game that he would like to do analysis of football games on television. Nixon employed his sports and journalistic ability in July 1972, when he .wrote a by-lined story for The Associated Press and named his all-time, all- great baseball players. Many Americans who watch sports have not been themselves good athletes, and Nixon was ^no exception. Nixon went out for football at Whittier College for four years. Trooper Chuck Webb identified the Injured as Harold E. Wolfgang, 57, of 706 Shipley St. and his wife. Mrs. Marie Wolfgang, 55. Webb said the accident occurred .when a car, driven by Randy D. Vaughn, IB, of Route 2, veered across the center line and struck the eastbound Wolfgang car. Vaughn told Webb that .he was traveling west on Hwy. 68 when two cars in front .of him slowed. He said he locked his brakes to avoid an accident and slid into the opposite lane. Following the impact, the Wolfgang vehicle slid 150 feet sideways through a fence. Vaughn was charged with driving left of center. Missouri Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said much of his state's corn also was beyond help. Officials in Iowa -- which produced about one-fifth of the nation's corn last year -- estimate that even with the rain, the state will lose up to 30 per cent of its corn crop. In 1973, the state produced 1.2 billion bushels of corn. This year, says Robert Lounsberry, the Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, the yield w i l l b e about 800 million bushels. Forecaster Waite said in Des Moines he thinks the drought is ended, ''We've had our hot spell," he said. Waite said the meteorological explanation of drought is derived from a complex formula involving temperature and moisture. Midwest officials say there still is hope for soybeans and grain sorghum -- other important, crops used to feed dairy cows, beef cattle and chickens. House member from Virginia. Any or all of these could wind up filling some of the blanks on the organizational chart they will fashion. In the meantime, the Nixon staff will remain in place but without promise 'of permanent status. The Nixon appointees, including Nixon chief of staff Alexander M.

France (AP) -- President Valery Giscard d'Estaing on Saturday got a first-hand ook at problems facing the country's prisons. The president visited the prisons of St. Paul and St. Joseph, separated by only a narrow street in Lyons. The two prisons hold some 500 inmates, half convicted trial. Giscard ,, two prisons embody all the prison problems which led to riots and hunger strikes in prisons across the country last month. Six prisoners died and scores of inmates and guards were injured in the wave of prison violence. The government has approved a prison reform program in response to the violence. soybeans could recover somewhat if the rain continues, but he says farmers will get less per acre than they anticipated. Harold E. Jones, a soil and water specialist at Kansas State University, said continued rainfall also could help the |rain sorghum crop and cut losses to 20 or 25 per cent. Last year, farmers got an average of 56 bushels of grain sorghum From every acre; this year, he said, they will get about 10 bushels less. There was scattered light rain in Indiana on Saturday, but officials said it didn't provide enough moisture to do much good. 'In wrestling with the inflation dilemma, Ford soon will face a series of. decisions on whether to sign or veto money bills that would push the $305 billion Nixon budget for the current fiscal year even higher. One of the last act of the outgoing President was to veto the annual Agriculture Department appropriation on grounds it exceeded his. spending targets by $458 million. FAVORS VETOES Ford has said he favors vetoes for Â· "budget-busting" bills and presumably . will put that preaching into practice. The new President has taken over early enough in the budget-drafting cycle to have a decisive voice in shaping the new federal spending blueprint that will go to Congress in January. Nixon had promised that budget, for the fiscal year that begins in ynid-1975, would be balanced and Ford, is expected to aim for the same goal. . Although Ford is certnin to make changes in his Cabinet over a period of months, he held his first formal meeting with department heads Saturday and asked all of the Nixon nominees to remain o" the job. None indicated a desire to make a auick exit. In the Ford scheme of things, the Cabinet is expected to play a more active role in shaping administration policy.
