Gesell, district soil conservationist here. They can be used for summer pasture, erosion control, wildlife plantings, wind erosion, outdoor classrooms and natural areas, he said. Warm season grasses such as switchgrass, big bluestem and Indiangrass are grown primarily for use as summer pasture. They can be grazed during the hot months of July and August when cool season grasses such as brome and bluegrass are not in full production. Warm season grasses are often used to provide soil protection on sediment producing sites and to provided cover and nesting for wildlife. Switchgrass is being used more for grass waterways. The reason is that atrazine does not affect its growth, Gesell said. It is tolerant to atrazine and does maintain a good vegetative cover. There is increasing interest in warm season grasses for prairie establishment, outdoor classrooms, and field wind barriers, the conservationist said. More in,fqi;ma,tion is a v a liable at a Soil Conservation Service office here.

Central 2.45-2.53 4.454.50 Southeast 2.54-2.63 4.54-4.67 Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) — Farm commodity futures generally trended lower on the Chicago Board of Trade today. Commodities first displayed strength and weakness because of government reports, then eased collectively. The Agriculture Department after Tuesday's close said it expected wheat exports for the 1975-76 season to be lower than previously estimated. It also stated that it expected corn usage in this country to expand and that corn exports also would rise for the period. The report noted that wheat stocks might thus increase and corn stocks decrease. Increased consumption as well as expanded exports, the Department said, were expected of soybeans, oil and meal. Thus the report was both bearish and bullish on commodity futures. Wheat futures fell 4 cents in' early trade, but corn, oats and commodities in the soybean complex generally showed gains. Trade was mixed and rather active in all the pits for about 30 minutes, but when the support began to wane prices moved slowly lower. Wall Street NEW YORK (AP)-Prices declined slightly in the stock market today in a lull following the Dow Jones industrial average's short-lived run at the 1,000 level on Tuesday. The Dow average of 30 blue chips was down 1.81 at 991.89 at noontime in New York. • Legislature (Continued From Page 1) sembly and have us do it for them by proxy;" And Rep. Tom Gilloon, D-Dubuque, in answer to arguments that the death penalty would deter crime, proposed an amendment to require executions to be held in public. If deterrence is the aim, said Gilloon, "then we should get executions out in public view. "Let's allow everyone to be deterred. Let's shut down the schools, declare a Roman holiday. If anyone is going to be deterred, this is the way to do it." COURT HOUSE New Vehicles Registered— Arden or Judy Hinners, Arcadia, Chevrolet; Linus M. Greving, Carroll, Pontiac; Norman J.

Sunday Dancing is Approved by Denison Council DENISON, Iowa (AP) — For the first time in 41 years, Denison residents can kick up their heels on Sundays. The City Council approved an ordinance that will allow dancing on Sunday. It replaces one passed in 1935 that banned dancing all day Sunday in public dance halls. The council also repealed another section of the old ordinance that banned consumption of liquor in public dance halls. The action came in response 16"a' request by;Denison area residents who want to stage a dance benefit for Judy Pauley, a Grand View student from Defiance who was seriously injured in gymnastics practice last fall. • Insulation (Continued From Page 1) be the biggest hang-up in the conference committee. After HUD announces its standards, states and communities would have to adopt new building codes. Failure to comply, under the Senate measure, would bring denial of federal assistance for new construction in the area. It also would block conventional bank financing for new homes and buildings through federally regulated banks in any community that does not adopt and enforce such standards. Sen. John Tower, R-Tex., called the sanctions "too harsh," but the Senate rejected, 46 to 43, his effort to remove them from the bill. It also turned down, 48 to 40, a milder 'amendment by Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton, D-Mo., that would have removed only the banking sanctions. Sen. William Proxmire, D- Wis., the floor manager for, the bill, said the sanctions were needed if true energy conservation is to be achieved. The alternative, Proxmire added, would be to leave the present "crazy-quilt of local building codes." The legislation generally is supported by the Ford administration. Carroll, Pontiac; Patricia A.

For example, if a small community needs fire equipment, there is no way now to get funds, he stated. But, in the R'ural Development Act there is a special provision for the purchasing of fire equipment. "I don't think our legislators know what's going t>n in the rural communities.

Action to Ban Long Trucks All But Dead DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Legislative action to prohibit 65-foot, twin-trailer trucks on Iowa highways this spring was all but dead Tuesday after a Senate committee rejected a move to overrule the Iowa Department of Transporation (DOT). The Senate Rules and Administration Committee voted 4-2 to reject a resolution by Sen. Eugene Hill, D-Newton, to overule the DOT decision which in effect makes the controversial trucks legal in Iowa effective May 1. "I think the public wants us to vote on the issue," said Sen. Clifton Lamborn, R-Maquoketa, who asked the committee to send the resolution to the Senate floor for debate. "We are not meeting the needs of the Highway Commission right now — putting more trucks on roads is going to deteriorate our interstate system," Lamborn warned. But Sen. W. R. Rabedeaux, R-Wilton, said the long trucks are long overdue. "Hundred of thousands of gallons of fuel were wasted during a crisis because 65-foot trucks couldn't cross Iowa," he said. , The legislature two years ago approved the long trucks on Iowa highways, but Gov. Robert Ray vetoed the bill. Ray later accepted legislation creating the Department of Transporation. The legislation included a provision that the DOT could allow 65-foot trucks by rule. That rule was adopted in January. Under the law, the legislature has 60 days to overrule the DOT or the long trucks become legal on May 1. The 60-day period is up this weekend. Lamborn could get only Sen. Bass Van Gilst, D-Oskaloosa, to join him in voting to send the resolution to the floor. Rabedeaux and Sens. William Pafmer, D-Des Moines, George Kinley, D-Des Moines, and Lowell Junkins, D-Montrose, voted against it. .Meanwhile, Hill and Lamborn are circulating a petition in the Senate to suspend rules and have the Senate take up the resolution without committee recommendation. 1 That 1 petition would require signatures of 26 senators. Hill said he had only 19 signatures by late Tuesday. Clark to Offer Amendment to Hatch Bill WASHINGTON (AP) —Sen. Dick Clark, D-Iowa, said Tuesday he will offer an amendment to strike from the pending Hatch Act reform bill a section exempting all White House staff members from the bill's restrictions against on-duty political activity. Clark said the bill as written would "give presidents carte blanche to use their taxpayer-, supporter staffs for whatever political activities they choose." The reform measure would permit executive branch em- ployes to engage in political activities for the first time, as long as they do so on their own time and no government equipment or facilities are used. • • Funds (Continued From Page 1) write in and work through them to convince them to fund this rural act," Stecklein said. "Rural America has to start standing up for itself and form a strong lobby just to get its fair share of federal funds," Stecklein said. The COG director is in favor of taking funds away from HUD and the cities to upgrade the rural areas. "Many communities need assistance now to alleviate serious conditions," he said. "Some can't progress or even maintain a status quo." "There is nothing these small communities can do. It makes me frustrated and aggravated about the present situation." One situation which could occur, is that one federal agency could order a rural community to make improvements such as water purification or installing new sewers while another federal agency denies funds, said Stecklein. "What's to be done?" he asked. "Will the communities have to disincorporate, which will lay the cost back to the county? The cost then will, wind up at the state level. Where's it all noinir to stop?" f— Briefly 15 Die in Mine Blast OVEN FORK, Ky. (AP) — The bodies of 15 men, killed in a southeastern Kentucky coal mine, were recovered early today, and at least one question was raised about safety procedures in the mine. The blast occurred Tuesday afternoon as the men were laying rails. Nine were killed instantly and the others died after a leak developed in an air-tight barrier they had attempted to build, rescuers said. Officials described the explosion as a methane gas blast, and Rep. Tim Lee Carter R-Ky., said after visiting the mine early today that he feared the level of methane was too great. "I'm afraid someone was welding ... and I would have hoped they would have monitored the methane and I don't think they did," Carter said. "I think the methane was too high." 42 Die in Plunge TRENTO, Italy (AP) — "I suddenly saw customers rush to the window. I looked up and saw the cableway loosening. The car swayed and crashed and the huge bar on its roof.smashed down on top with an awful noise." Franca Scarian, a barmaid, was describing the scene Tuesday when a seven-foot high red cable car filled with skiei-s plunged 200 feet to the ground near this northern Italian city, killing 42 persons, including women and children. Most of the victims were West Germans. Only one person survived the crash, a 14-year-old Italian girl. Doctors said her leg and pelvis injuries were serious but that she had a chance to survive. Seeks Curb on Irish Funds DUBLIN, Ireland (AP) — Prime Minister Liam Cosgrave will intensify his government's campaign to curb the flow of money from Irish-Americans that he claims bankrolls Irish Republican Army guerrillas, government officials said today. Cosgrave, a major opponent of the IRA, will launch his high-powered attack on the guerrillas by addressing the U.S. Congress next Wednesday at the start of a six-day visit to the United States. He will also meet with President Ford to spell out the IRA threat in Ireland and the urgent need for U.S. efforts to crack down on guerrilla fundraisers and gunrunners operating in America. Seize Gunman FRANKFURT, West Germany (AP) — A gunman who held two hostages for 29 hours at a Frankfurt courthouse and demanded release of an accused robber was seized by police today, authorities reported. Nixon Deposition WASHINGTON (AP) — Richard M. Nixon reportedly claims he did not personally select persons who were the objects of wiretaps early in his presidency, a statement that apparently contradicts the views of Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. According to published reports, the former president says in a deposition that he approved an over-all wiretap program in 1969 but left the specific targets to Kissinger, then Nixon's security adviser. The deposition was to be filed in court today. Nixon's position would appear to conflict with Kissinger's sworn statement that "while his (Nixon's) authorization was in general terms and not limited to specific individuals, my understanding was that he then directed surveillance of Morton Halperin and certain others." . Halperin, a one-time national security aide who was one of 17 persons wiretapped, is suing the former president, Kissinger and others for damages that could exceed $3 million. Bribe Money to Japanese WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. officials have obtained information which strongly suggests that Lockheed bribe money was paid to high-level Japanese officials durng the last 10 years. The information, according to these officials, is based on the private conversations of a prominent former Japanese official. This official has been a principal focus of attention concerning Lockheed payoffs since the scandal broke last month. A U.S. official who has followed the Lockheed case closely quoted the former Japanese official as telling intimates in Tokyo, "If I get caught, I'm going to take a lot of people with me." Verbal Battle at Hearst Trial SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - For an entire day, Patricia Hearst's attorney and a government witness waged a verbal battle that was a virtual standoff—and left the defendant all but lost in the war of words. Miss Hearst, on trial for a terrorist bank robbery, heard her name mentioned fewer than a half-dozen times Tuesday, prompting U.S. District Court Judge Oliver J. Carter to sigh at one point, "We're losine sight of the Hearst trial," Her attorney, F. Lee Bailey, and psychiatric expert Dr. Joel Fort traded thinly veiled insults and lengthy questions and answers tinged with sarcasm on matters dealing with Fort's attitudes and qualifications. Bailey was expected to complete his cross-examination of Fort today, and U.S. Atty. James L. Browning Jr. planned further questions as he tries to prove Miss Hearst was a convert to terrorism and thus took part in the bank robbery willingly. Miss Hearst says she participated only in fear of her life.
