Strauss said he did not think any candidate would go to the Democratic convention in New York with enough delegates for a first-ballot victory. The delegates elected in II- linois from the 24 congressional districts are not bound to vote for the candidates to whom they are committed, even on the first ballot.-. ; The pemocrats will send 169 delegates to the national convention from Illlinois, the Republicans 101.

"But you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm now strongly in favor of completing it. "I hope we spend as much time on the attorney general's budget as he has spent interfering in our business." Working until 8 p.m. Tuesday night on its fifth day of criminal code debate, the House ran through more than 50 amendments. It decided against declaring homosexuality a crime. It also: — Tightened the definition of "assault and coercion" in the rape statutes. — Made sexual abuse of a child under 12 years of age a Class A felony punishable by life imprisonment. — Raised the crime of child stealing from a Class C felony with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $5,000 fine to a Class B felony punishable by a 25-year prison sentence. — Decided the state should pay the cost of medical examinations of a rape victim to gather evidence or protect against venereal disease. — Declared that a jury must "presume" guilt of a person who writes a bad check and fails to make it good within 10 days. — Refused to remove from .the bill a special section dealing with defrauding innkeepers and service stations. Girls' School to Close DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A joint legislative appropriations committee Wednesday voted unanimously to close the Iowa Girls Training School at Mitchellville effective Jan. 1,1977. The inmates at Mitchellville would be transferred to the State Juvenile Home at Toledo under the plan. "There is plenty of room for those kids in Toledo," said Sen. Berl Priebe, D-Algona, co-chairman of the committee. "What we do with Mitchellville comes next." Operating the Mitchellville facility as a medium security unit is one of three options being considered to remedy overcrowed conditions at the State Men's Reformatory at Anamosa and the State Penitentiary at Fort Madison. The subcommittee did not consider that Wednesday. But some members have advocated beefing up other current facilities and using Mitchellville as a prison instead of converting the Mount Pleasant Mental Health Institute into a prison or building a new one at Newton, as the State Department of Social Services has proposed. • The committee voted to appropriate $400,000 to operate the Mitchellville facility for the remainder of the year. Imports Curb Could Up Prices WASHINGTON (AP) — President Ford's decision to limit imports of specialty steel could increase prices of some products to consumers because the imports are 20-30 per cent below domestic prices. The exact effect on prices won't be known right away, but even officials of the U.S. steel industry, who have advocated import restrictions, say prices could increase in the short-run. However, they have argued that consumers would benefit in the long-run from a strengthened domestic steel industry. Specialty steel, which is only about 1.5 per cent of total U.S. steel production, is primarily stainless and alloy tool steel. Stainless is used extensively in the food, chemical, textile, pollution control and electrical power industries, while alloy steels are used to make tools, including tools for the manufacture of nearly all industrial products. Approve Limited Studs Ban DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A limited ban on studded snow tires was approved Wednesday by the Senate Transportation Committee and sent to the full Senate for debate. "Studded snow tires cost the state $6 million a year in wear and tear on the streets and roads." said Sen. Elizabeth, R-Marshalltown. "With steel belted radial tires, even regular snow tires are not needed as much as they were a few years ago,"she said. Sen. Roger Shaff, R-Camanche, was successful in adding a provision to allow studded tires for vehicles not exceeding 40 miles an hour. Shaff said this would keep those cars off the interstate highways since those highways have a minimum speed of 45 miles an hour. He said farmers in hilly, rural areas need the studded, tires to get to town and get up their driveways in winter. Margaret, Snowdon to Part LONDON (AP) — The Daily Express reported today that Princess Margaret and her photographer husband, the Earl of Snowdon, plan to separate. The Daily Mirror said they have begun divorce proceedings. The Mirror said Queen Elizabeth II was expected to announce the breakup of her younger sister's 15%-year marriage shortly. Divorces within the royal family must have the monarch's approval. A spokesman at Buckingham Palace told newsmen, "Obviously the situation has been discussed by the royal family. But I am not in a position to say what decision, if any, has been reached." Lord Snowdon, 46, told reporters as he left for Australia to put on a photographic exhibition, "I never discuss my private life." Pentagon Officials Rebuked WASHINGTON (AP) - Two top Pentagon officials were rebuked by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for accepting hospitality'from a major defense contractor, although some advisers to Rumsfeld reportedly had urged that one fired as a warning to others. Dr. Malcolm R. Currie, the Pentagon's research chief, was handed a "severe reprimand" Tuesday night and ordered to forfeit four weeks salary because he and his daughter spent last Labor Day weekend at a Bahamas residence leased by Rockwell International Corp. and flew in the company's plane. Navy Secretary J. William Middendorf received a letter of admonition, a less harsh rebuke, for going goose shooting 14 months ago at a Chesapeake Bay' lodge, owned by Rockwell, tenth biggest defense contractor and builder of the Bl bomber. The Pentagon said Middendorf did not find out until two weeks ago that the place had any connection with . Rockwell. More Base Closings, Cutbacks WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon said today it wants to close or cut back 80 Navy and other military bases, which would result in possible job losses for nearly 7,000 civilian workers and service personnel The cutbacks would affect 74 Navy installations, many of them small reserve centers, and six activities of-the Defense Supply Agency, the Defense Mapping ( Agency and the Army. The installations are in 29 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico. Bearing most of the brunt of the cutbacks, as well as more than 7,000 military and civilian personnel transfers, will be Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas California, New York, Tennessee, New Jersey and Indiana. ' • • • . * The Pentagon estimated the cutbacks will result in annual savings of more than $56 million.
