S By David Nicklaus (Drake University Journalism Student) AMES — The World Food Conference here June 27-July 1, wnlike its predecessor in Rome two years ago, will concentrate more on academic aspects of world food production than on political aspects.

Do nothing hastily. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Do everything in moderation today. Don't overdo it, whether working, playing, socializing, eating or drinking. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If you're approached with a speculative proposition, tell the person to come back tomorrow. Today you're apt to be taken in by the frosting on the cake. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Pride may prompt you to promise something beyond your ability to deliver today. Being realistic will save embarrassment later. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may be tempted to embellish facts today to make a better story. Stick to your straight-forward manner. Others can sense a put-on. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be cautious in shopping or bargaining today. You're not as sharp as usual. You could save pennies, squander Wednesday March 17.1976 Bernice Bede OSD Conference in Rome, "politics almost immediately took center stage," said David L. Lendt, assistant to the vice president for information and development at Iowa State University (ISU). The 1976 conference at ISU will attempt to put together "the best brains in the world ... in production and agriculture," and to play down politics, Lendt said. However, he added, "We can't completely avoid politics." Lendt said he knew of no other international conferences which have been conducted by academicians rather than politicians. Unlike the one in Rome, the Ames conference is not directly connected with the United Natfons. The Rome conference was sponsored by the U.N. Food and Agricultural Organization; the Ames conference is sponsored by ISU's World Food Institute. The World Food Institute conducts food research and education. It also is sponsoring six other international conferences on food-related issues at ISU this summer. These include congresses of pig veterinarians and of agricultural editors; a meteorological symposium; conferences on field experiment mechanization and on quantitative genetics; and a nutrition and drugs interrelation symposium. The World Food Conference will be interdisciplinary, Lendt emphasized, including both social scientists, such as economists and sociologists, and physical scientists, such as plant and animal researchers. For example, "We want to bring the expert in soybean production in contact with the expert in international law," Lendt said, adding that this contact will enable experts to view problems from a different perspective. About 600 persons will dollars. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It's wise to view a problem from all angles. Today you could become obsessed with so many alternatives you could fail to grasp the solution. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Don't prejudge situations today. You have a tendency to see things as you'd like them to be, when it's advantageous to recognize them as they are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You could become so totally immersed in the activities of others today that things you really want to do will go by the boards. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It's a day when you can depend only on No. 1. Delegating jobs probably'will not work out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Define clearly the price and desired results of any service you're paying for out-of-pocket today. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Don't let anyone assume control of your resources today just because you don't want to fuss with details. It's a luxury you can't afford. YOUR BIRTHDAY March 17,1976 You may receive some interesting propositions this coming year, but. don't jump at anything you're not sure of. If in doubt, consult experts in the field. Patrol Sergeants Ruled Supervisors By Iowa Daily Press Association DES MOINES - For collective bargaining purposes, a hearing officer has decided that sergeants on the state highway, patrol are considered supervisory personnel. Ronald Hoh, a hearing officer for the state public employment relations board, said this means that the sergeants may not participate in collective bargaining activities"" There are about 50 sergeants on the patrol which has an authorized strength of 430 positions. In his 8-page decision, Hoh noted that sergeants have no authority to discharge, lay off, recall or transfer any of their subordinates-. However, he pointed out that sergeants are the first step in the patrol's disciplinary process. "They (serge^in^) can give verbal or written reprimands to subordinates without prior approval and may' recommend suspension to the lieutenant, who generally makes the decision whether to suspend, "Hoh state.. A state trooper must have eight years' experience before becoming eligible for a promotion. Promotional examinations are given once a year. If the applicant for promotion finishes in the upper two-thirds qf those taking the exam, he is interviewed by a board at the division level. "While sergeants do not immediately direct the work of their subordinates, they clearly are 'in charge' of the shift, and are responsible for all personnel needs within the post, "Hoh said. Iowa law, Hoh commented, does not prohibit any individual employed as a* supervisor from becoming or remaining a member of an employe organization; rather the prohibition is limited to participation in that employe •organization's bargaining activities. participate in the conference. The program for each of the first three days includes a plenary session, in which the group meets as a whole; four smaller, concurrent subplenary sessions; and 12 concurrent workshops, each of which will discuss a specific topics. The final day of the conference will be spent making summarizations and reports. The plenary, subplenary and summary sessions are open to the public. Seating capacity will be limited. About 144 of the 600 conferees will be invited guests; the rest must submit applications and be selected by a screening committee. The committee will seek a breadth of disciplines and adequate representation of both developed and T!m«i Herald, Carroll, la. Tutxdoy, March 16, 1976 10 developing nations, Lendt said. He said all nations will probably not be represented, because of various difficulities in getting persons to come. For example, Lendt said an invitation was extended to one African scientist, but no reply was received — it was later found that he was in jail because of a political upheaval in his country. The conference has been recognized by both the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration and the Iowa Bicentennial Commission as a bicentennial event. Lendt said he expects a good response to the conference from lowans: "It is a Bicentennial event, and the plenary sessions will be open; I just can't imagine not having a full house," The conference has received a $30,000 grant from the ARBA and a $25,000 grant from the Iowa Bicentennial Commission, but Lendt said most of the conference's $400,000 budget will come from private donations. He said the Ames conference will be more expensive than the one in Rome, which was made up mostly of government officials. The governments paid for the officials' trips to Rome, but many scietists could not come to Ames if the conference did not pay their expenses, he said. Lendt said ISU hopes to publish the proceedings three or four months after the conference. FOR IRISHMEN ONLY! And Those Who Wish They Were Irish General Electric Extra Capacity J8-Lb.
