agency in Cerro Gordo County the man in charge of that ad ministration fears Lawrence Copley office man ager of the Cerro Gordo Agri cultural Stabilization and Con servation Services an nounced Friday that farmers signing up for the 1966 Fed eral Feed Grain Program start ing Monday will have to do so at the ASCS office in Mason City In past years the local of fice has established signup spots throughout the county to allow the procedure to move as fast and smooth as possible This year however the ad ministrative funds for the local ASCS office have been trimmed to such an extent that Copley and the county ASCS committee do not believe it would be pos sible to operate the outside signup spots without running short of funds Its ridiculous Copley says of the cutback in funds Were being penalized for being ef ficient Copley points out that up to last year his office had seven employes Lastyear that fig ure was cut to six Theyve seen that we can operate efficiently with six Copley continues so now they want to cut us back some more As a result although the office handles million or million a year we have to worry about or By being forced to have the entire signup at the Mason City office additional strain will be put on the office staff and it will mean inconvenience to the farmers Copley points out Before we set up certain days for farmers to go to a set place in their townships to signup for the program Copley explains This year we will have to take care of all the farmers al the Mason City office where we have limited space Last year about 80 per cent of Cerro Gordo Countys 1800 farmers participated in the feed grain program and received more than million in di verted acre and price support payments Copley expects the participation to be at least that high this year The total cost of having the signup spots out in the county FOCUS turn to Page 2 Krebiozen case to jury MORNING AFTER This vwas the scene on Bostons Boy Is ton Street this morning

from the jury room But the 15year debate over the merits of Krebiozen as an anticancer drug raged on in the courthouse corridors The debaters were Krebiozen partisans many of them cancer patients and agents of the Food and Drug Administration who conducted the long investigation into the nature of the drug and the activities of its promoters Government witnesses told nothing but lies charged one

LUXEMBOURG AP West European leaders Saturday weighed a new French proposal to end the crisis in the Common Market by an agreement de signed to avoid showdown votes affecting a nations vital inter ests Wehave to ruminate over it said Dutch Foreign Minister Josef Luns after a working din ner Friday night But Gerhard Schroedcr the West German foreign minister said the latestFrench proposal still did not answer the basic question Should each of the six member nations keep a veto major decisions France has fought to keep the veto but the other five mem bers want to go ahead with plans to replace it with majority rule The new French idea is this Therewould be no formal veto but if a member nation said a proposal threatened its natioisal interest France would refuse to take part in the voting or to rec ognize the result if there were a vote The hope is that with this threat clearly stated no such situation would ever arise Un der this arrangement a com promise would always be found before the situation into a showdown vote To back up their position the French say they would like to see a joint statement by the six member nations that all of them want to settle problems by unanimous vote and that none of them wants to see the others national interests threatened The debate was due to go on all day Saturday in the Luxem bourg City Hall It might last into Sunday The Common Market known
