The Bells are former Vail residents. Rites at Vail for Boy With Rare Disease OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A rare congenital disease causing sensitivity to anesthesia led to the death of Robert Bell, 2, of Beatrice, who died Tuesday at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, according to a physician. The boy had been unconscious for 12 days after receiving anesthesia at a Beatrice hospital for treatment of a cut on his mouth. Dr. Carol Angle of the Medical Center said the disease is nearly impossible to detect before anesthesia. Services were scheduled for Friday at Vail, Iowa. Mail Shift to D.M. Cuts Summer Jobs OMAHA, Neb. (AP)-Sum- "mer and temporary jobs for 297 workers at the Postal Service's Omaha office have been eliminated with a shift of- most bulk and transit mail to a new center near Des Moines, Iowa. Omaha Postmaster John Munnelly said the Omaha Post Office lost nearly two-thirds of its bulk and transit mail operation to the $37 million bulk mail center that opened last January at Urbandale, Iowa. Because of the reduced work, Munnelly said the student employment program was abolished, 193 temporary jobs were eliminated, and parttime workers' hours were "reduced" significantly.'' Munnelly said 104 students lost parttime and summer jobs from which- they earned about $5,000 annually. He estimated that the 64.5 per cent reduction in bulk and transit mail service will mean a $3.1 million annual savings, which will be turned over to the Iowa bulk mail .center. Bayh (Continued From Page 1) Bayh started late and was underfinanced from the start. He finished third in the New Hampshire primary last week with 16 per cent of the vote, behind former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter and Udall. ''Certainly we're disappointed with the results," Bayh's manager, James Friedman, said after the vote was counted in Massachusetts. Bayh, 47, began preparing for a presidential campaign once before. But he withdrew in October 1971, when his wife, Marvella, underwent surgery for breast cancer. She has since recovered. When his name came up as a possible candidate last year, Bayh told an informal news conference that he had "no burning desire to be president. I don't care if I never sleep in Abraham Lincoln's bed." But last Oct. 21, in an appearance before the Indiana House of Representatives, Bayh threw his hat in the ring as a down-on-the-farm liberal, seeking, he said, "to restore moral leadership in the White House." Services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday at St. Ann's Church here, with the Revs. Harold Cooper and Harold McConnell officiating. Burial will be in the parish cemetery. Friends may call after 2 p.m. Thursday at the Huebner Funeral Home in Denison, where a prayer service is set for 8 p.m. Thursday.

Iowa (AP) — The federal estate tax laws should be changed so both spouses are given credit for contributing equal amounts . economically to a marriage, ' saiti-John Murray'of Ames, a • -•candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress. • Injunction (Continued From Page 1) election should be thrown out. Most of them deal with alleged voting irregularities. Thursday's only witness was Howard Heil, the district's Sioux City architect, who testified that a six-month delay in bid letting would cost the district $200,000 to $250,000. Plans now call for bids to be opened May 18, but. an injunction would move the date back to after the main lawsuit is settled. Jefferson attorney derald W. Magee told Richardson it would take about 120 days to prepare the case for his 53 clients. Magee said the only increase in cost if a temporary injunction is issued would be some additional architects' fees. Heil testified, under Magee's examination, that most work leading to construction would stop anyway, pending the outcome of the lawsuit. So about the only affect an injunction would have would be to halt work on a detailed plan by Heil. About 20 persons attended the hearing. Richardson also took under advisement a motion to dismiss the case which was filed by the district. or Donna Bruggeman, Carroll, Chevrolet.

Beef Grading Rules Criticized AMES, Iowa (AP) —The board of directors of the Iowa Cattlemen's 'Association has adopted a five-point resolution condemning new beef grading standards. The board said Wednesday the depressed cattle market shows that new grading standards are discriminating against poor-yielding carcasses without paying a premium for better grades. The ICA bqard asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture to begin a massive effort to make grading more accurate. "Many cattlemen believe that other segments of the industry are using market confusion to push prices lower than necessary," the board said. "The ICA encourages the industry to work with cattlemen to restore order to the market." The board statement said USDA figures show the price spread between farm and retail store has widened for several consecutive months. 25 CB Radios for Patrol Cars DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa 'Highway Patrol has reversed an earlier stand and will provide up to 25 Citizens Band (CB) radios in patrol cars. The Department of Public Safety at first refused to allow troopers to put radios in their cars, then later allowed them to buy their own radios but refused to let them transmit. Patrol Chief Col. Edward Dickinson said the radios will be used to communicate emergency messages and to aid troopers in detecting speeders who use CB radios to warn each other where troopers are patroling. The CB-equipped cars will be used along Interstate 80, Dickinson said. The Weather IOWA FORECAST Winter storm warning tonight.

NFO Studies Action to Up Cattle Prices CORNING, Iowa (AP) The National Farmers Organization (NFO) is considering a "holding action or marketing vacation" to drive up the price of cattle, President Oren Lee Staley said Wednesday. He said the NFO is sponsoring Cattlemen Action Meetings in several cities Friday, and more sessions will be held later elsewhere. "Cattlemen suffered severe losses 18 months ago and now they are being hit again," Staley complained. "Action must be taken or they will be forcM out of business." He said any action taken will be to reverse a $14 per hundredweight drop in cattle prices that has occured since Jan. 1 and another $4 drop late last week and Monday when new U.S. Department of Agriculture grading standards were initiated. "We are determined to give cattlemen an opportunity to fight together to raise their prices and correct the discounts that are now being taken before the cattle industry is permanently crippled," said Staley. An NFO spokesman said a discount means cattle buyers now can lop off a portion of the purchase price for cattle that are overfed or overfinished beyond currently acceptable market standards. The cattlemen's meetings ' ' m u s t be used as a springboard to unite slaughter cattle production and start a bargaining process to correct unfair discounts and low prices,'' Staley explained. But any decision to hold cattle off the market or to decline such action "will be a decision made by cattlemen," Staley said. "The NFO has plans and is ready to initiate them, but the final decision will be based on the support of the cattlemen." The impact of any holding action is unclear because the NFO has not released its membership figures. The meetings Friday will be at two Iowa cities — Sioux City and Davenport — as well as at Denver; Omaha and North Platte, Neb., Jamestown, N.D.; Lansing, Mich.; Great Falls, Mont.; Indianapolis and Evansyille, Ind.; St. Joseph and St. Louis, Mo.; Mankato. Minn.;; PiettC S.D.;*Boise, Idaho; Madison, WislT and Columbus, Ohio. Staley said later meetings will be held in Texas, Oklahoma. Maine and California.

Farm Workers Total 166,000 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — There were some 166,000 workers on Iowa farms during the week of Jan. 11-17. the Iowa Crop and Livestock •Reporting Service said Wednesday. That figure, which includes 148,000 unpaid family members, is essentially unchanged from a year ago, the service said. Iowa farm operators worked an average of 31.4 hours during the survey week, while hired workers averaged 32.9 hours a week. Tuition Rates at B.V. Raised STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) —Tuition rates at Buena Vista College will increase $250 a year to $2,450, college officials said Wednesday. But room and board rates will remain at $1,050. President Keith Briscoe said the tuition increase, which will go into effect for the 1976-77 academic year, is necessary because of the "inflationary trend for nearly all services and supplies the college purchases." ^- Briefly Mansfield to Retire WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield announced today he will not seek re-election this year after 23 years in the Senate. The Montana Democrat said in a statement that 34 years in public office, including service in the House, "is not a long time. Bift it is time enough. I will not be a candidate for reelection in the 95th (Congress)." "My conclusion has been reached in this instance with my wife Maureen Hayes Mansfield, who has been with me through all these years and whose sensitive counsel and deep understanding have been so much a part of whatever may be the sum of my contribution to Montana and the nation," Mansfield said. Vorster Fears Escalation Prime Minister John Vorster of South Africa said today Mozambique's "state of war" border blockade of Rhodesia could cause the situation to escalate into something "much more serious." He told his parliament in Cape Town that apart from "the danger inherent in the situation itself," the presence of Cuban troops and Soviet arms in Africa "is an aggravating factor, especially in view of the Russian policy and tactics to exploit such situations to their own advantage and to achieve their well-known aim of world domination." Cuban troops helped the Soviet-backed faction win the civil war in Angola. May Have Dread Fever WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman suspected of having deadly and contagious lassa fever remained hospitalized in isolation here today, but health officials said the disease posed no immediate danger to others. Margaret Coe, 42, a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer who had been in Sierra Leone for two months, was reported in good condition at George Washington University Hospital. Health officials said the woman contracted the rare disease in Africa and that it would take several days for blood tests to reveal how communicable it is. "She has antibodies in her blood that would indicate that at some time she had an active case of lassa fever," Don Berreth, a spokesmaafor the U.S. Center for Disease Control at Atlanta, said Wednesday. The Plymouth, Iowa, woman and her husband, who was not affected, flew from Sierra Leone in western Africa to Washington via London last Saturday. Mrs. Coe was admitted to the hospital Monday after showing signs of illness. Lockheed Shakeup LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lockheed Aircraft Corp., jarred by a payoff scandal involving foreign officials, has. undergone a major corporate shakeup that puts international operations under control of the home office arid includes retirement of three senior executives. Among the retirements announced Wednesday was that of John W. Clutter, 64, a Lockheed employe for 37 years who headed the giant aerospace firm's Far Eastern operations while Japanese agents were paid millions of dollars to promote aircraft sales. A Lockheed spokesman refused to say if Clutter's retirement — ,anc| the., two^hers — were,connected with disclosures that" the troulblell firm had paid officials of foreign governments to ensure sales of its aircraft. Resigned in Dispute WASHINGTON (AP) - The scientist who recently quit as the government's solar energy chief says he resigned in a dispute over interference by White House budget cutters and priorities in solar energy spending, rather than only for personal reasons as announced by presidential aides. John M. Teem, former assistant administrator of the Energy Research and Development Administration in charge of solar, geothermal and advance'd energy systems, said the White House's Office of Management and Budget "is getting involved in much greater detail than it should " in solar energy planning. He also said the administration failed to seek sufficient funds in its fiscal 1977 budget request to stimulate interest in solar energy.
