"We have a problem. We can't ignore it forever." The school aid formula would be left at the scheduled 74 per cent state participation next year and would rise to 77 per cent in the second year. Gov. Robert Ray's plan to increase property tax relief for elderly renters and homeowners would be part of the package. That would raise the percentage of property tax now paid to the elderly earning less than $8,000 by 5 per cent and would include, for the first time, those earning between $8,000 and $9,000. In addition, the state would pay half the cost of special assessments on property owned by the low-income elderly. The conference committee worked almost three weeks to settle differences between House and Senate plans to restrict spending by local governments. It also expanded its job to consider all property tax relief measures proposed in the legislature.

Some of the cheers: "Beat those Catholics! Kuemper's outclassed! The. refs are Catholic! Fish on Friday!'" But, at the end of the game when Washington's chances were hopeless one last chant was heard: "The refs won this one!" If Kuemper didn't have the most fans, they were the most vocal, cheering on the Knights with every play. The Knights seemed to respond and led the biggest share of the game, pulling out a four-point victory. Jim Zabel, sportscaster for WHO radio and television, became an honorary Kuemper fan when one red and gold cap was hurled up to him. He wore the cap through part of his broadcast.

Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who contends that family farms are threatened by high estate taxes, has urged reform of the estate tax system. Grassley told the House Ways and Means Committee Wednesday that estate taxes place such enormous burdens on heirs that taxes can only be paid by selling part of all of the estate. There were 5.6 million farms in 1950 but only half that many today, Grassley said. He said estate taxes are largely responsible for the decline in family farms. He urged the committee to approve his bill to increase the value of property exempted from $60,000 to $200,000, pointing out that the present level was established 34 years ago. "The proportion of an estate needed to pay the estate tax has increased from 1 per cent to 11 per cent," Grassley said.

Reagan also was to appear today in Greensboro, Morganton, Hickory, Winston-Salem and Raleigh. Wall Street NEW YORK, (AP)-Talkof a possible flow of funds toward bonds pushed the stock market into a broad decline today. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was off 7.72 at 978.27. Losers outpaced gainers by better than a 2-1 margin among New York Stock Exchange-listed issues. Analysts said investors were a little uneasy over the wide spread by which bond yields currently exceed those on stocks following the stock market's steep rise over the past 15 months. The concern was that investors might now shift their sights toward the bond market, reducing demand for stocks. Bromert to Patricia S. Skinner, part of outlet A, Bromert Addition, Carroll.

WASHINGTON (AP) — There are increasing indications that much of the Soviet Union's winter grain crop has been damaged severely by weather and farmers will be forced to replant large areas this spring, according to the Agriculture Department. The department has been saying for some time that the Soviet winter wheat crop got off to a poor start last fall as a result of drought. Thus, when winter cold forced plants into dormancy, they were not adequately developed to survive. "Cold weather in February threatened this vulnerable crop still more, particularly in the South where snow cover was sparse," the department's Foreign Agricultural Service said Wednesday. "Considerable replanting to other grains is probable." One favorable development for the Soviet Union has been that "snow has continued to pile up" in areas where spring wheat will be planted, meaning that the outlook for the soil moisture appears good at this time. Coffee Heart Discounted BOSTON (AP) — A four-year-old study that linked coffee-drinking with heart attacks has been discounted by a new one. In the study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine, a team of Boston doctors says, "The risks, if any.. ..appear small." Four years ago, the Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Program at Boston University said the risk of acute myocardial infarction — the heart damage that results from a blocked artery — was increased 60 per cent for those who drank one to five cups of coffee each day and 120 per cent for those who drank more than six cups. The National Coffee Association says that during last winter the average American drank 2.2 cups of coffee per day. Seeks Injunction DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa attorney general's office is seeking a Polk County District Court injunction against a Tennessee firm that promotes a product known as "Seal-Tite." In a petition released Thursday, the Consumer Protection Division said that L.O.C. Industries.of Nashville falsely claimed that the product was ' 'capable of sealing flat tires." The state also claims that L.O.C. falsely led prospective distributors to believe that there would be an extensive advertising campaign and the firm would assume much of the burden of sales and billing for the distributors. Funding for Causes WASHINGTON (AP) — The new campaign financing law is making it possible for advocates of a cause to spread their message with federal money under the guise of a presidential campaign. One person expected to take advantage of the law is Reed.G. Larson, executive vice president of the National Right to_Work Committee, who says he is planning to enter the racs for the Democratic presidential nomination. Larson would be following the same strategy as ..Ellen McCormack,.a.Lonft Island housewife who is campaigning in the Democratic primaries with federal matching funds to promote efforts to end legal abortion. "We've been thinking about it ever since she qualified for the funds," Larson said Wednesday. "If she can take advantage of the law and use it to focus attention on a specific issue, why can't we?" Asks Smith to Resign OMAHA, Neb. (AP)—Former Nebraska Lt. Gov. John E. Everroad has called for the resignation of Republican National Chairman Mary Louise Smith-of Des Moines, Iowa, accusing her of taking a partisan stand in the primary race for the party's presidential nomination. Everroad said Mrs. Smith is "doing everything possible" to help President Ford get the nomination. "No longer can anyone run for the presidency on the Republican ticket as it is now a closed organization," said Everroad. "Mary Louise Smith knows full well that this was Nixon's wishes that the Republican party be closed to only the decision as made by him, and that Nixon hand-picked Gerald Ford." 41 Killed in Beirut BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) — Forty-one persons were reported killed and 37 wounded in fighting during the night between Moslem and Christian private armies as Lebanon's feuding politicians reported they had reached tentative agreement on another Syrian peace plan. Mortar and rocket explosions kept much of Beirut's population awake throughout the night as leftist Moslem and right-wing Christian militiamen dueled in the city's devastated hotel district. There was also firing in Beirut suburbs and between the Moslem city of Tripoli, the home of Premier Rashid Karami 60 miles north of Beirut, and Zagharta, President Suleiman Franjieh's native Christian stronghold. Alert Called in Thailand BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — All military forces in Banpkok went on full alert today in preparation for the deadline for the withdrawal of American forces from Thailand. Military leaders were on guard against student demonstrations protesting the expected failure of the U.S. and Thai governments to comply with Prime Minister Kukrit Pramoj 's pledge to get more than 4,000 American servicemen out of the country by Saturday. The Thai government wants some American military advisers to remain, and the still being negotiated. "The military could declare martial law in Bangkok if there is clear indication that the country and the public are in danger from the other side," said a spokesman, referring to leftist student and labor groups as well as Communist infiltrators that the military has recently been reporting.
