The Johnsons flew only part way back in the slow-moving DCS, switching to an Air Force Jetstar at Longview, Tex., to return to the ranch before mid- night.

The Americans in the Saigon area were warned to stay off the streets and avoic crowds unless absolutely neces- sary for official business. WASHINGTON spe- cial federal grand jury is inves- tigating'spme of (he wide-rang- ing" business deals of former Senate Democratic Secretary Robert G." Baker. The panel, which began'its in- vestigation more than a month ago, has issued a number of "John Doe" subpoenas. They are returnable at 10 a.m. EST today. The "John Doe" subpoena does not reveal the name of the person called to appear. In a -related developmnt, Sen. D-N.C., chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, reported Tuesday that his investigators have not been able to find a key witness in an alleged political payoff involvin Baker. The witness is Don' B. Reynolds, an insurance agent of. suburban Silver Spring, Md. Jordan said a subpoena has been issued' for Reynolds' ap- pearance before the rules com- mittee but it cannot be served because Reynolds cannot be lo- cated. Senate investigators were said to be planning to complete the Baker investigation before the new 89lh Congress convenes in committee was confi: dent Reynolds would show up so public hearings could begin Dec. li But a spokesman for Rcyn olds said-Tuesday night lhat the January. A rules spokesman said he insuranceman was not expected tc return from a vacation until the end of December. He did not say where-Reynolds was va- cationmg. _............ The empaneled in early October, was given the job of investigating "false state- ments in official statements to a duly constituted body-of the government." It was revealed earlier in Senate hearings thai Baker ob- tained a loan from the Small Business Administration on the basis of a false statement of his financial worth. The loan was vised by Baker to buy an interest in the Carou- sel Molel at Ocean City, Md. Peking, U. S. In Parley WARSAW China's nuclear potential and the conlin- uing crisis in Southeast Asia were considered virtually cer- tain to come up today in secrel talks between Hie United Slates and Communist China. A meeting between represen- tatives of both sides was sched- uled in an ISfh century Polish nobleman's palace. It was the I23rd official ses- sion of a little-publicized series of talks between the two coun- tries wbicli began on Aug. 1, 1955. The last, previous session was held Sept. 23. The American ambassador to Poland, John Moore Cabot, was the- chief U.S. representative. His Chinese counterpart, was Ambassador Wang Kuo-chuan. What both representatives say to each other is never disclosed, since secrecy is considered an essential part of the talks. It ensures thai whatever is said actually represents the views of the two governments, which have no other direct contacts. But it appeared extremely likely that Red China's recent explosion of. a nuclear device would be on the agenda. The situation in Southeast Asia anc Peking's claim to have sho: down an unmanned U.S. recon naissance plane also were con s i d e r e d probable discussior items. The nuclear question could be raised in the contest of a Pe king proposal "that, a summil conference of all the countries of the world he convened to dis cuss the Question ot the com plcte prohibition and thorough destruction of nuclear weap ons. The proposal was part of a Chinese Communist announce msnt lhat a nuclear device w'a set off Oct. 16. A copy of lti> proposal was delivered to In U.S.-government.

Prof. Lou C. Cunningham, economist in the university's College of Agriculture, gave this advice at the I'arm and Home Center when he presented a preliminary report on a survey of commercial dairy farms in i central and western New York, to the Ontario County Extension Service dairy commodity corn- ice at Cornell to help farmers to understand the competitive position of the dairy farmer and to aid planning committees, such as the county group, to help other dairy farmers. Fewer Units "There was a sharp change toward fewer operating units, j now only a porlion of it has been farms in the region now fall in the 20-to-'J9 cow group, the 40-59 group comprises 22 per cent and there was a three per cent rise in the 100-cow or more herds.

We know, loo, that the foun- dation for a peaceful world is still to be built and that even now armed strife exists in of the world. We are sad- dened that gallant men of our armed services have fallen in the eternal quest for peace with freedom, dignity, and justic for all. We share with their be- reaved families and friends a sense of tragic loss. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, we resolve "that 'these honored dead shall not have died in. and vow that their loss will spur us ever onward until man's great dream of universal peace is realized. Yet we are filled with an in- stinctive impulse to give thanks for free society of free men, free institutions, and free elections; freedom of speech, .our freedom of the press, and our freedom to worship as our con- science dictates; emphasis upon the dig- nity, equality, and worth of man; humanitarian instincts; unallenable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! confidence in our abili- tyto meet Ihe challenges of to- day and of'the future.. For these are the things that apart as a made our nation will keep our .nation great. So. as our forefathers in Vir- ginia, in New England, and throughout this land have done for more than three and one- half centuries, let us appoint a special day on which all of us, in keeping with the dictates of our own conscience, will give thanks lo the'Lord for his man- ifold- blessings. And on that let us rededicate ourselves to meeting the challenges of tTie present with the fortitude and faith with which our fore- fathers met the challenges of the past..

Of the 400 commercial dairy tlJ-u farms, in the study, 67 of Idem are doing businesses in Ontario County. Some of the problems brought out by the professor that will need solving in the future in- clude: How are we going to handle haylage, mechanically? How will we handle the need for more silage storage? Will there be more empha- sis on corn growing? How are we going to house cows'i mittee. Change Not Over The professor noted that "the change in (dairy) housing has not spent itself. Obsolescence is not over. We're far from reach- ing the point of stability in agri- cultural change." In a sampling survey, con- ducted by Cornell appointed men last May, it was found that the number of commercial dai- ry farms in a specific area of western New York have drop- ped nearly 50 per cent in 10 years. Using 150 road segments that were used in a university sam- pling survey 10 years ago, the professor revealed that there were 417 full-time dairy farms in May, on these roads. This figure was down "to 272 in May, 1954. In the past 10 years, the professor said, there have been 196 drop-outs in this area of sampling and 51 new commercial dairy farms. Of (he drop-outs, 107 went inlo rural residences, 47 to non-dai- rying farms, 29 lo part-time dairy farms, the professor re- vealed.
