Duff said equipment now being used on the more established routes would be phased into the Inter-American train, which connects St. Louis with Laredo, Tex., via Arkansas. He said new bi-level cars, 25 new electric locomotives and 200 new coaches probably would go to the commuter routes where Amtrak is trying to sell speed of travel to compete with the airlines. 30th Annual Third District Livestock Shew and Rodeo MOPE, ARKANSAS September 23-29, 1974 SCHEDULE OF EVENTS MONDAY 10:00 a.m. Arts and Crafts Judging 6:00 p.m. Official Parade, Downtown Hope 6:00 p.m. Sonny Meyers' Amusement Show Opens on Midway 7:00 p.m. Antique Car Show 7:30 p.m. Fair Queen Contest and River City Concert ($3.00) TUESDAY 9:00 a.m. F.F.A.

Close race Dow chairman calls is predicted £ or voluntary control Rain, floods persist in Texas LONDON (AP) — Political observers today predicted another close race as the three- week campaign opened for the national election Oct. 10. £ Ladbroke's, one of Britain's leading bookmakers, made Prime Minister Harold Wilson's Labor party a 3-2 favorite to win the largest number of seats in the House of Commons. But it also quoted the equivalent of 5-3 odds that it would fall short of a majority, as it did in the February election. The latest Gallup poll, published today in the Daily Telegraph, gave the Laborites 42 per cent of the vote; the Conservatives 34; Liberals 20.5 and others 3.5. In the outgoing, 635-seat House, Labor has 298 seats, the Conservatives 296, the Liberals 15, and 24 are held by minor parties, including the Scottish Nationalists and Ulster Protestants. There are two vacancies. Wilson called the election in an attempt to gain a majority so he could push through Labor's socialistic program. —Be a courteous driver. DETROIT (AP) - The chairman of Dow Chemical Co. called today for the imposition of voluntary wage-price controls, while auto industry leaders proposed a moratorium on federal emission and safety rules. "I would propose voluntary support of what might be called a 'five and 10' program," said Dow Carl Gerstacker. "Government would ask industry to take a pledge, company by company, not to raise its price index by more than a reasonable level, say 5 per cent. "And government would ask labor leaders to pledge that they would limit their demands to a reasonable level, such as 10 per cent, during the same period." He said the program would help immediately to arrest the spiral of inflation if the guidelines were respected over the next year. Gerstacker made the suggestion in remarks prepared for a mini-summit on inflation sponsored by the U.S. Commerce Department. It is one of 12 preparatory sessions for the President's Conference on Inflation set for Sept. 27-28 in Washington. Ford Motor Co. Chairman Henry Ford II warned that inflation "will destroy our economy if not checked. "Unfortunately, fiscal and monetary stringency cause lower incomes, higher unemployment and social stress." Ford called for creation of a presidential commission to study long-range demands for raw materials. He said public employment for the unemployed and income maintenance for the poor might be needed in the future. General Motors Chairman Richard Gerstenberg said he agreed with industry leaders who said during a mini-summit in Pittsburgh earlier this week that mandatory wage and price controls had no place in the administration's anti-inflation campaign. Gerstenberg repeated GM's oft-stated request for a moratorium on safety and emission standards. He said they drain the auto industry of badly needed capital. By The Associated Press Record flooding caused by unusually heavy rains persisted today in parts of Texas as rainfall continued. Flash flood watches remained in effect for central and southern portions of the stceam . Water rose a few inches deep in homes on the northwest side of Abilene, where authorities said the worst flooding probably was over. The North Concho River rose 12 to 15 feet in the San Angelo area, and the highway to Big Bend National Park was closed. The upper Colorado River at Silver, Tex., was expected to crest more than 11 feet above the record stage of 17.68 feet. A little more than half an inch of rain fell Wednesday night at Lubbock, Tex., and National Weather Service radar indicated heavier rains in other parts of West Texas. A cold front caused overcast skies and some rains early today from the northern Rockies into the upper Great Lakes. Fog and low clouds limited visibility in many sections of the Appalachians and along the California coast. A few scattered showers dampened parts of New Mexico and Arizona, while the rest of the nation had fair skies. In the Northeast, tempera* tures before dawn dropped into i the low to mid 40s, while most of the nation reported temperatures in the 50s and 60s. Temperatures ranged from 30 degrees at Houlton, Maine, to 85 at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Blythe, Calif.
