Simon announced Saturday. The Soviets will be allowed to acquire one million tons of corn and 1.2 million tons of wheat, Simon said. President Ford on Oct. 5 halted a planned shipment of a total 3.2 million tons of U.S. grain, including 2.3 million tons of corn and tons of wheat. The President acted in the face of smaller U.S. harvests primarily brought on by ad- verse Midwest weather condi- tions in the form of spring floods, summer droughts and autumn freezes. Following the shipment halt, Simon went to Mosc' w on Oct. 12 to discuss the grain situa- tion with Soviet leaders. Si- mon said Saturday the partial resumption of U.S. grain sales resulted from those discus- sions. Simon's announcement said, "The Soviet Union also agreed to make no further purchases in the U.S. market this crop year, which ends next sum- mer. Further the Soviet Union agreed to work with the Unit- ed States toward development of a supply-demand data sys- tem for grains." Treasury officials said such a system would consist of an exchange of information be- tween the United States and Russia about predicted crop harvests and anticipated grain 'demands. The grain sale aborted ear- lier this month had been planned by Continental Grain Co. of New York and Cook Industries, Inc. of Memphis, Tenn., both major grain ex- porting firms. Officials of' both companies then were summoned, to the White House for a'weekend meeting with Ford. After the< meeting, Agriculture Secre- tary Earl L. Butz'announced that the proposed sale had been canceled: At the time, .officials said the Ford administratibn was concerned that the planned shipment might represent the first step of a massive Rus- sian purchase at a time when U.S. supplies were already low and retail prices for flour, beef and other grain-based products were high. The Soviets bought 17 mil- lion of U.S. grain in 1972 and another 17 million tons in 1973. Simon said that Soviet offi- cials told him during his Mos- cow visit that the Russian har- vest was expected to be ade- quate this year as far as hu- man consumption was con- cerned but that imports were required to feed livestock." s Rocky's Donations Total WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President-designate Nelson A. Rockefeller said Saturday he has donated almost million to charitable, educational and art institutions during the last 17 years. Rockefeller disclosed his philanthropic contributions just one 'day after he an- nounced that the Internal Rev- enue Service has assessed him for in back income taxes. The assessment totals more than million when in- terest is added. The disclosure that Rocke- feller owes back taxes injected a new note into the controver- sy surrounding his vice presi- dential nomination and prompted White House Press Secretary Ron Nessen to an- nounce that President Ford "still'has complete faith" in Rockefeller and that Ford be- lieves Rockefeller's nomina- tion will be confirmed by Con- gress. In New York, Rockefeller said he was not guilty of any wrongdoing in connection with his income taxes. "There's nothing wrong, there's nothing illegal, there's nothing immo- ral, and there is no conflict of interest in anything I've done or that's come Rockefel- ler said as he left the hospital Breast Check-ups Urged for Women where his wife, Happy, is re- covering from breast cancer surgery. Rockefeller's gifts of to 193 institutions from 1957 through last June 30 were disclosed in a letter he sent to Sen. Howard W. Can- non, D-Nev., chairman of the Senate Rules Committee that will reopen hearings on Rock- efeller's nomination on Nov. 13. The new hearings were or- dered following disclosures that Rockefeller made gifts of to 18 present or for- mer public officials, members of his staff and others from 1957 to 1974 and that his broth- er, Laurance, had financed a book about Arthur J. Goldberg when the former Supreme Court Justice ran against Rockefeller for govenjir of New York in 1970. President Attacks Democrats Staff 'Photo by John Best MARILYN MONTGOMERY ACC Homecoming queen Father's Message Read As ACC Queen Crowned By KITTY FRIEDEN Reporter-News Staff Writer Marilyn Montgomery's fa- ther couldn't be in Abilene to see her crowned Homecoming Queen, but he let her know his thoughts were with her. Miss Montgomery, a home economics education senior from Hacienda Heights, Calif., was crowned in a smooth cor- onation ceremony at ACC's Moody Coliseum Saturday morning. Her father who works in Los Angeles was unable to make it to Abilene but was notified ahead of time that his daugh- ter was elected queen. He sent a message which was read to her when she was crowned. Robert Montgomery ex- pressed congratulations and his wishes that, he could have been there Saturday. And the note added, "You are a beau- tiful girl, and like most typical fathers, I think everyone there will confirm that as they see you now.

(AP) President Ford barnstormed through three states Saturday campaigning for Republican congressional candidates and saying he will prove polls pointing to major Democratic gains are wrong. During his 16-hour, six- speech swing through the Car- olinas and Kentucky, Ford re- peatedly attacked. Democrats as big spenders who would throw away the keys to the federal treasury. "I've had a super Ford said at his last stop, a fundraising dinner here to plug the uphill struggle of Re- publican Marlow Cook to keep his Senate seat. As the day wore pn, Ford began injecting, Jijinself mo'i'fe" personally into the Republican campaign to blunt the predict- ed Democratic gains in next month's congressional elec- tions. The President harked back to former President Harry Truman., in 1948 and de- clared: don't believe the polls ajiytmore than lie did." "I Tinman did...our policies "at home and abroad are right and I intend to sell them to the American Ford said to the applause of about Kentucky Republicans who paid from to for a box of fried chicken. "The last thing I'm going to do is be barricaded in Wash- ington, Ford added, be- cause "there are a lot of fine brains in Kentucky that might be more help than if I sat and listened to a lot of bureaucrats in Washington." In urging the re-election of Cook, who faces a strong chal- lenge from Democratic Gov. Wendell Ford, the President said if the Democrats win, "The key to the treasury will be thrown away, and the mon- ey will pour out unbelieva- bly." As he did in every speech of the day, Ford declared "a veto-proof Congress means a legislative dictatorship..." Ford told an airport crowd at Greensboro, N.C., "You've got an obligation. So do I, and we don't achieve it by sitting on our hands and wringing our hands and saying, 'Gee, the polls look Ford asked; "What's the matter with us? Have we lost that old fighting Ford See FORD, Pg. 12A. Col. 1 Hamlin Rejects Bond Issue HAMLIN Hamlin voters Saturday rejected by, almost 2-1 a bond issue to build an: all-weather track and renof vate Piper Stadium. In a light turnout of 392 voters, 251 posed and 129 favored the pro- posal. The bond issue called for constructing and equipping of an eight-lane track west of the football stadium and gi-andstandjfor the track. The fss'iie called for new aluminum seats at the football stadium as well as a new fence for the stadium: The financing of new lights already installed at the stadium was also included in the issue. The bond issue, if it passed, Would have, raised tax- es seven cents per valua- j-'l'. tion, or about five per The school district will time warrants to pay for the already-installed lighting. School board president W. T. Johnson said voters reject- ed the issue because it fol- lowed too closely two success- ful hospital bond votes. Hamlin trackmen have won two straight state AA champi- onships with no track on which to hold meets. A field used for football stadium parking is graded in the spring to enable Pied Pipers trackmen to practice, but all interscholastic meets must be on the road. By KITTY FRIEDEN Reporter-News Staff Writer Every woman should have a yearly examination for breast cancer as the minimal precau- tion against the disease ex- pected to strike about six per cent of the American popula- tion of women, a medical ex- pert on breast disease says. Dr. George Blumenschein, chief of medical breast dis- ease from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute in Hous- ton, says examination by a physician is necessary despite frequent checks women may make by self-examination. Dr. Blumenschein was in Abilene Saturday for a semi- nar on cancer sponsored by the Center for Continuing Edu- cation at Hendrick Memorial Hospital. The sessions drew about 125 doctors from the area, most of whom were from Abilene. THE DOCTOR suggested the best time to have a breast ex- amination is the same time a woman has a Pap smear tak- en, an examination that should also be made annually. While about 80 per cent of all breast cancer victims de- tect the problem themselves, through self-examination, screening the use of techni- cal medical equipment ap- pears to increase effective ness in spotting cancer, ac- See YEARLY, Pg. 12A, Col. 7 Inside Todoy Looking at Bracero Program The problem of Mexican citizens entering the U.

But, the way Lynn tells it, when the dove returned.to the ark he didn't have any olive branch in his beak, he had a mesquite branch and that's how Harry happened to end up in West Texas. "You're going to think I'm a silly old man before this is Lynn added at the end of the story. AN INTERVIEW with Harry Lynn doesn't reveal a silly old man but a humorous man who has many stories to tell about his es years with the Ballinger First National Bank. Lynn, 78, retires Dec. 1 after working his way from errand boy to president in 1965. Lynn was born In Tennessee and. moved with his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Lynn, to Ballinger in 1906. Lynn graduated from Ballin- ger High School in and the bank president, R. G. Kr- win, gave him as assis- tant bookkeeper. But Harry had already had some experi- ence in banking while he was in high school. He worked as an errand boy at the Citizens National Bank which later consolidated wiKi the First National Bank. Three things stuck out in Harry's mind when he was talking about his days as an errand boy. First was the ma- jor decision lie had to make. The teller sent Lynn to the barber shop across the street to tell the owner that he was overdrawn by Lynn re- layed the message to which the barber replied, "Okay, I'll give you a check for it." "THAT WAS the first deci- sion I ever had to make whether to take Die check when be was already over- drawn but I didn't take it. That was a big decision lo make, wasn't Another thing Lynn remem- bers about workng at the bank in high school was that he was the envy the whole class. The reason was he got out of class everyday at to go to work. And one time three em- ployes it the bank came down with the mumps at the same time so Lynn had to work in their place. "I was out of school about 10 days while they were he said and laughed, perhaps re- membering how envious his classmates were. Probably the most impor- tant thing Lynn remembered about his errand boy days was Melvin Traylor, the bank pres- ident whom Lynn calls his hero. After Traylor left Ballinger he went to the Stockyards Na- tional Bank in St. Louis, Mo., and then became president of the First National Bank in Chicago. LYNN REACHED in his desk drawer and pulled out a small pin that he said he wouldn't take anything for. The pin had a picture of Tray- lor and said, "Melvin Tray- lor for President." Lynn said1 Traylor wanted to run for President of the Unit- ed States bqt he got pneumon- ia and died: before the Demo- crat i c National Convention when Franklin Uoosevclt was nominated.; When Lynn talks about those errand boy days he is liekly to reach behind him and pick up see ERRAND, Pg.
