"We're not involved in Centel in any way," Sutherland said. "Why would we sell our Payless stock because Asher is interested in Centel?" Sutherland noted that Payless stock was trading at $14.75 a share when his family and Edelman began buying large blocks of it April 4. When they sold 271,800 shares last week, the stock was trading at $23.53 a share.

"We thought that the stock was a little ahead of itself," Sutherland said. "Maybe we should have waited." Payless stock closed Wednesday at $24, down cents, on a volume of 924,100 shares. In addition, Sutherland pointed Union calls Zenith unfair The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, Mo. The Zenith Electronics Corp. is thwarting an employee bid for the company's Springfield television plant, according to a statement released Wednesday by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

J.J. Barry, IBEW president, said, "Zenith is actively talking with other bidders, including foreign firms, but so far refuses even to provide its employees with the financial information necessary to structure bid." Zenith spokesman John Taylor, reached by telephone at company headquarters in Glenview, said that he was aware of the IBEW's contentions but that he had no further comment. He would not confirm that the Springfield plant was for sale. Barry said that management had told the union that if the union was allowed to bid, it would have less than a week to prepare an offer. He said corporate bidders had been negotiating with Zenith since May.

He said he had asked Zenith to give the union more time to prepare its own bid or a joint bid with another party. The Springfield plant is the only U.S. television manufacturing site. It employs more than 1,600 hourly workers. Zenith repeatedly has suffered losses attributed to foreign competition.

The center has been be designed to handle, supplies and distribution stores, allowing an expansion from the 250 stores operated nationally by the company, Saint-John said. The Belton operation will be almost totally automated, which will mean less manual labor for employees who are working with 15- to 20-year-old technology in the current warehouse system, Saint-John said.

Adams, Lexington, and two sisters, PatriLouisreen, 1 Richmond, and Lesa Swanson, St. MYRA AFFOLTER company said there was no guarantee of an offer or an exact price. Edelman and Sutherland said they still were waiting for Payless to provide the information being used by Payless' senior management for its possible offer so that their group could consider making an offer. Payless officials declined to comment on the subject Wednesday. Centel spokesman Bill White said that company still had a definitive agreement to buy United TeleSpectrum.

Centel earlier dismissed the Edelman group's offer as not credible, and White said that position had not changed. Edelman's sale of some Payless shares last Thursday came a day after he disclosed a similar sale of Foster Wheeler Corp. stock. Edelman reduced his stake in the New Jersey construction and engineering firm to 8 percent. Weather forecasts boost futures Continued from Page D-1 Joyce said that news coverage on the drought had brought more speculators into the market, making for many buyers but few sellers.

"The wheat rallied on the strength of the corn and beans," said Richard Loewy, senior grain analyst with Prudential Securities Inc. in New York. "Wheat really shouldn't be higher, because of harvest pressure." In addition, the National Weather Service on Wednesday issued a sixto 10-day forecast that called for above-normal temperatures and I below-normal precipitation. Scattered rainfall this week has out that the sale lowered the Edelman-Sutherland group's stake Payless only slightly from 9.9 percent to 9.1 percent, or slightly more than 3 million shares. The group is still Payless' largest shareholder.

"Nothing has changed as far as our desire to consider acquiring the company," Sutherland said. Richard Pyle, an investment analyst with Piper, Jaffray Hopwood Inc. in Minneapolis, said the fact that Edelman and Sutherland sold shares at the same time could indicate that the sale had nothing to do with the bid for Centel. Pyle suggested that the investors might have sold some Payless shares to keep a lid on the price of the stock. Payless said last week that its senior management was considering buying the company at a per-share price in the However, the not weakened trader interest in the grain markets.

"There's a front going through right now, but people are not expecting it to give us that much rain," said Tom Murray, senior analyst with Stotler Research Inc. in Chicago. "No one is willing to sell." He said he expected higher prices again today because of the weather outlook. Joyce said that in rallies that attracted a lot of speculators, price increases usually came to a halt. "As a rule, that's usually the end of a rally, but that's not necessarily the case here," he said.

Joyce said continued dry weather should keep prices up. Braniff adds 14 flights from KCI Continued from Page D-1 City. An official at Paine Webber a New York investment company that organized the prospective Braniff buyers, said they were not trying to steal traffic from Eastern. Rather, the possible expansion is intended to tap KCI's potential, said the official, who requested anonymity because the buy-out was not firm. Eastern has problems in Kansas City, it will give a better return to the investors," he said.

"But it wasn't a predator-type deal." The buy-out calls for the Pritzkers, who own 64 percent of Braniff's common stock, and the airline's other owners to get $7 a share and retain 20 percent of the recapitalized operation. Willard W.
