Friday, Ntarch !», 197* Daily Record MRS.ANNOLERICH Mrs. Ann Olerich of 327 W. 15th St., Carroll, died at 1:45 p.m. Thursday, March 18, at St. Anthony Regional Hospital. Mass of the resurrection will be celebrated at 1 p.m. ^^ ' l Brazil's Corn Exports Likely to Be Doubled BOONE, lowa.(AP) — Iowa farmers can expect more competition for corn export markets from Brazil, the chairman of the board of the National Corn Growers Association said Thursday. Walter Goeppinger of Boone, who returned this week from a two-week trip to South America, predicted that Brazil's corn exports "are going to double in the next year, up to 105 million bushels. "This means increased competition for the world's corn markets," Goeppinger said. He said the Brazilian government is heavily subsidizing crop production and exports. ARC Hears Pathologist About 20 members of the Carroll County Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC) heard a talk by Karen Thompson, speech and language pathologist for Heartland Education Agency, Thursday night. Several special education teachers from the area attended the meeting and answered parents' questions, Mrs. Merle Wiedemeier, secretary said. The next ARC meeting will be April 22 at Manning. • Taxes (Continued From Page 1) promise will return to local governments $54.8 million in 1976-77 and $52.8 million the next fiscal year, property taxes statewide will increase $29 million next year and $76.7 million the year after. Stromer said the same result more simply and with a. fairer distribution of property taxbreaks could be accomplished by reducing the basic's,cnob) property tax, now 20 mills, to 12 mills on residential property and 14 mills on agricultural property. The windfall came about because the state will have to pay about $55 million less foundation school aid next year because of the tax equalization orders. The , orders sharply increased property valuations over the state. State school aid would be lessened because the 20 mill basic school property tax levied under the foundation plan would raise more money with the higher valuations. Before the House took up the conference committee report, Gov. Robert Ray expressed disappointment with it and raised doubts whether he would sign it if it is enacted into {aw. Rep. James West, R-State Center, a member of the conference committee, said^e doesn't think the governor has to worry. "This plan has very little chance of passing the Senate," he said. West called the measure ''mechanically inadequate" and said it establishes a "credit system by which we make a decision that some people will get property tax relief and others will not." Saturday at St. Lawrence Church by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Henry B. Karhoff. Interment will be in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Friends may call after 2:45 p.m. Friday at the Twit Funeral Home. The rosary will be recited Friday at 3 p.m. by the Legion of Mary and at 8 p.m. by St. Lawrence parishioners and the Catholic Daughters of America. Mrs. Olerich was the widow of Victor H. Olerich. A daughter of'the late John and Mary Halbig Huegerich, she received her schooling in Carroll. She was a member of St. Lawrence Church and Ladies Guild; an auxiliary member of the Legion of Mary, a member of St. Anthony Regional Hospital Auxiliary, Catholic Daughters of America and the Eight O'Clock Bridge Club, all in Carroll.' She also was a charter member of the American Legion Auxiliary at Breda. Mrs. Olerich is survived by a sister, Mrs. Ed (Mayme) Dopheide of Carroll; a niece, Mrs. Eileen Riordan of Minneapolis; and three nephews, Donald Huegerich of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Paul Huegerich of Brookfield, Wis., and Ray Huegerich of St. Louis, Mo. Preceding her in death besides her husband were two sisters, Mrs. John (Doris) Wernerskirchen and Mrs. Andy (Josephine) Ley; and three brothers, Frank, George and John Huegerich. Hearst (Continued From Page 1) terrorism and Browning dismissed her defense as "too incredible to be believed." He recited the major points in her defense, summed it up as if she were saying, "I didn't mean it," and then, leaning forward over a lectern, he said slowly and emphatically, "It's too big a pill to swallow, it just doesn't wash." The tall, lanky prosecutor, glancing at a prepared text, made only one direct reference to Miss Hearst's Feb. 4, 1974, kidnaping at the hands of the SLA. "I'm sorry that Patricia Hearst was kidnaped," he said."I'm sorry anyone was kidnaped ... but can you assume that she was a kidnap •victim for the next 19 months? "Don't be misled by the smokescreen the defense has raised," he urged the jury. "Judge this case on the merits. Judge this case on the evidence." Bailey, discarding notes and a microphone, hammered away at the kidnaping and Miss Hearst's professed fear of the SLA as coloring all the evidence against her. "You have to resort to something besides the evidence in -this case," he said. "It's riddled with doubt and always will be." Bailey, peppering his speech with dramatic pauses and sometimes almost whispering, said there was no question that she robbed a bank. "The question you are here to answer is why?" he told the jurors. "And would you have done the same thing to survive? Or was it her duty to,die to avoid committirig a felony." Miss Hearst, clad in the same conservative navy blue pants suit she wore the first day of her trial, sat impassively through all the arguments, flanked by dark-suited attorneys.

Clark said the UN "provides an indispensable framework for any final solution to the Mid Bast problem." But "condemnation of such General Assembly actions as the resolution equating Zionism with racism is richly deserved," said Clark, adding that such resolutions are not binding on UN members.

"It will be a blessed day when we get an endowment large enough to insure our future," Msgr. Wegner said shortly after he became director in 1948. Father Flanagan founded the haven for boys 58 years ago in a house in Omaha. He began with five boys and $90 that he was able to borrow for food and rent. Before his death, Boys Town had developed into a national institution with a population of 450 boys between the ages of 10 and 16. Under Msgr. Wegner, Boys Town continued to expand. When he retired as director there were more than 700 boys and the institution's wealth was nearly $217 million. Today, the home's total assets stand at $242 million.

Conservation Practices Are Needed in Area The Carroll County Soil Conservation district and ASCS committee are ready to assist local farmers and others in taking steps to avoid serious soil losses now and in the future, officials said Friday. Arlyn B. Gesell, conservationist assisting the Carroll County Soil Conservation district, said more field shelterbelts should be established in the county. The "plant-to-the-fence- row" U.S. farm policy, he asserted, is carrying a high price tag in the form of sharply higher soil losses. "Soil erosion, wind and water, has increased significantly as farmers have plowed up old pastures, meadows and fence lines to .expand their corn and soybean acreage," Gesell noted. "If we continue to insist on producing more, there is definitely a need for more land protection if we are to conserve the land for future crop production," Gesell said. "Practices such as field shelterbelts, conservation minimum tillage, terraces, contour strip-cropping, contour farming, grass waterways and grass headlands, all play an important role in land protection. ''We have already experienced serious damage from wind erosion and many plowed fields are still subject to more damage." Commissioners are Lloyd Freese, Alvin Musfe.ldt, Leonard Sporrer, Leland Roden and Morris Schmitz. ASCS committeemen are Ray Kruse, Louis Stork and Cliff Eischeid.

(Ai') — Controversy over the nomination of an ex-Nazi to be the next president of Rotary International has sparked the unexpected nomination of several other candidates for the office, a spokesman for the worldwide service organization says. Dr. Wolfgang Wick, vice chairman of the board of directors of the Austro-American Magnesite Co. in Radenthein, Austria, was the sole candidate chosen earlier this year by an 11-member Rotary nominating committee. When it became known last week that Wick was a former Nazi party member and SS trooper, opposition to his nomination began mounting among Dutch and Israeli Rotarians and others. Wick responded that he intends to remain a candidate for selection at the group's New Orleans convention June 13. Ken Switzer, a spokesman at Rotary headquarters here, said Thursday that several other names have been placed in nomination for Rotary president since Wick's Nazi background became known. Under Rotary rules, any of the 16,705 chapters worldwide may place in nomination any qualified person before the April 16 deadline, he said. However, Switzer said such chapter nominations were unusual and that past practice "for many years, to the best of my knowledge" has been for the convention to elect automatically the committee nominee. Phone Monopoly Broken WASHINGTON (AP) — Telephone users will be able to shop around for all their phone equipment under a new Federal Communications Commission ruling. The decision announced Thursday virtually ends the American Telephone & Telegraph Co.'s control over what phone equipment is installed in the nation's homes and businesses. Customers now will be able to buy telephones, switchboards and other equipment from private vendors without having to pay AT&T for connecting devices. AT&T contends that may prove a bane, not a blessing. "The quality and cost of telephone service for millions of Americans will be adversely affected by the decision," predicted AT&T Board Chairman John D. deButts. , , AT&T claims competition may actually drive up consumers' phone costs. It warns that consumers may buy inferior equipment that will be more expensive to repair. Rhodesian Talks Collapse SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) — Talks on the political future of white-ruled Rhodesia collapsed today. Black nationalist leader Joshua Nkomo said he would hold a news conference soon and Prime Minister Ian Smith said he may make a statement later in the day. Police reinforcements were reported dispatched immediately to Salisbury's African townships as a precaution against possibly violent black reaction. .Rhodesia,, dominated by the 274.000 .white, minority, broke away from Britain in 1965 to avoid granting majority rule to the 5.7 million blacks. It has been under increasing pressure from much of the world since. In recent months, black guerrillas based in neighboring Mozambique have increased crossborder raids, and the government of Mozambique closed the 800-mile frontier March 3 and declared it considered itself in a state of war with Rhodesia. Nuclear Threats WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation's nuclear facilities have faced bomb threats, several arson attempts and cases of people breaking through security, but none of these incidents has resulted in a major problem that would endanger the public, according to federal authorities. i Authorities also disclosed Thursday that since 1970 there were 28 incidents in which persons threatened to use nuclear material against cities. In each case/FBI investigations uncovered no unauthorized possession of nuclear material, officials said, and the threats were labeled the work of crackpots and the mentally ill. The FBI refused to discuss the incidents. Authorities said there have been at least 175 threats or actual acts of violence against nuclear facilities ' since 1969. A spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) said most involved telephone bomb threats that proved false, but he acknowledged there also were several arson attempts and in two cases a pipe bomb and dynamite were found.
