Pope, University of Idaho wheat breeder, will visit Australia and New Zealand, to present paper at International Wheat 'Geneties Symposium and consult cereal research workers while on a five-week trip supported by the Idaho Wheat Commission. Pope will visit researchers in Canberra, Wagga Wagga, Adelaide and Toowoomba, Australia, and Christchurch, New Zea- Dr.

Warren K. Pope land. Not only will he consult with researchers concerning mutural problems and goals, Pope also will have the opportunity to make a arrangements for seed exchange of wheat types that might be useful in Idaho. However, the most important aspect of his trip will be to report on research work with stripe rust. The university wheat breeder is gaining widespread recognition for his work with wheat diseases.

More recently Pope has concentrated his research efforts in investigating plant resistance to stripe rust. He was led into this avenue of endeavor through his concentrated efforts to breed into wheat varieties all the world's known sources of resistance to bunt, many of the more important genes for resistance to stem rust and leaf rust, as well as various agronomic characters. In the midst of this work, stripe rust hit wheat growing areas of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. In looking over his plots, Pope realized that rapidly that the Chronicle obtain a clear picture of nests in the 50-foot-long can be seen from the road. cameraman was unable ot one.

Burglars entered the Colfax IGA store sometime Saturday night with the makings of a party taken, according to Colfax Chief of Police Nolan Deputy Sheriff Howard Abbott, who investigated. Taken from the store were two cases of beer, a number of cartons of cigarettes and an unknown meat items, including T-bone steaks, ham steaks and roasts. No money was taken, the officers said.

Latah Job Scene Better MOSCOW, Idaho Haying operations and a general upsurge in busness in Latah County accounted for a total of 31 persons being placed on jobs during the past week according to Frank J. Hartstein, manager of the Moscow office of the Idaho Department of Employment. Hartstein said many of those placed on jobs were high school and college-age men.

This is the first week this summer, he said, that his office was able to place many young people in temporary summer employment. However, there are still quite a few youngsters seeking summer work, he said." At the end of the week there were 38 jobs still open. All of them were for experienced workers for full-time jobs. Openings for women included some wheat crosses were segregating for a wide range of resistance to stripe rust some reaching levels than ther parent. He watched the phenomenon in subsequent stripe rust years, and the picture became clearer.

Evidently there were many minor genes influencing, these stripe minor rust. In genes, working Pope found that they are usually but not always additive with each other. Some do little alone but become every effective in complementary interaction with certain other genes. In commenting on Pope's work Dr. Arthur M.

Finley, head of the Plant Science Department, said: "'The system of multiple genes with small increments of resistance for stripe rust as found by Dr. Pope by implications should be found for diseases and plant types and be a solution to disease situations where the breeders are running out of specific disease resistance. Hence, it is a matter of international U.S. Plans Low-Quality Grains' Sale WASHINGTON (AP)-A special program to sell qua American wheat overseas as livestock feed was announced recently by the Agriculture Department. The wheat will be made available to countries normally using the grain as livestock feed, the department said.

No export subsidies will be involved. The program will result in exports of wheat which otherwise would remain in the United States as surplus, department said. The grain will be colored with a vegetable dye to identify it for use as livestock feed. Ram Sale Aug. 3 BOISE (AP)600 rams will be auctioned off at the Idaho Wool Association annual sale Aug.

Battle Over Farm Payments Looms WASHINGTON (UPI)- new battle to clamp rigid limits on the size of government payments to individual farms is expected on Capitol Hill this week.

He said that the birds return to the area every spring, and hatch two or three sets of babies during the summer. "The birds plug up the backs of the holes with mud to make their nests. There are interconnecting passages between many of the nests," he said. Chris said that the swallows have the usual diet of insects, but are also adept fishers in the small stream which runs below their colony. "They swoop along about an inch above the water, and catch the minnows which swim near the surface," he said.

Mrs. Paulsen admitted that her son may be something of an authority on the birds, after watching them every spring and summer, but took a slightly different view. "We sometimes have problems because the swallows insist on building other mud 'adobe' nests under the eaves on our house," she said.

2.6 a $17,500 ceiling on the payments to any one farm under the governmest's wheat, feed grain, cotton and wool programs. If any of these proposals becomes law, it would strike down a system under which some very large farms now get annual payments of $100,000 to $500,000 more and, in a few around $1 million. One compromise plan being drafted by Rep. Ancher Nelsen, would scale down payments to big operators but would not eliminate them com- pletely. Reductions Listed Under Nelsen's plan, farmers earning paymenst up to $10,000 a year would get the full amount.

Growers earning $50,000 in payments would get those qualified for $500,000 would get farms qualified for $1 million or more would get 000 plus 50 per cent of sums earned over $1 million. Also under the Nelsen plan. some money saved by cutting payments to big farmers would plowed back into extra payments to growers drawing payments of $1,000 or less. The big payments result from the basic nature of the support programs. In the wheat, feed grain and cotton programs, farmers can earn acreage diversion payments by complying with federal production controls.

They also earn price support payments on the grains and cotton grown on their restricted acreage. Under this system, the bigger farms divert more acreage and earn larger diversion payments; and they have more remaining acreage for price support payments after idling the required percentage of their land. Proposals to put a lid on payments have been beaten down regularly in recent years. But backers of the limitation now feel they have a better ever chance because of recent publicity about "contradiction" between big farm payments at time when poor people are demanding expanded relief programs. Johnson administration officials can be expected to conItinue their opposition to a ceiling on farm payments.

Agriculture Department spokesmen contend the move would keep big farmers out of the acreagecontrol programs, thus destroying the effectiveness of the programs for all farmers. Quie, on the other hand, contends the administration's fears are groundless. Whatever happens this week, Quie said recently, the era of big farm ments is coming to an end sooner or later. He predicted future payment systems would be designed only as a "social" program for small or medium-sized farmers. The Quie amendment will avoid follow.

ing the pattern of many similar moves in the past any attempt limit federal direct payments to big sugar producers. Critics have found as a practical matalter that payments-which attempts to limit normally sugar include about two $1 million payments a year would alienate a number of lawmakers who might support limits on other commodities..
