Vote Crucial to Wallace, Reagan Shriver Drops Out of Campaign By The Associated Press R. Sargent Shriver officially dropped out of the campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination today on the eve of the North Carolina primary which could be crucial for fellow Democrat George C. Wallace and Republican Ronald Reagan. President Ford and Jimmy Carter, the apparent front-runners, looked ahead to future races while Wallace and Reagan blitzed North Carolina for votes, hoping Tuesday would bring their first primary victories. The withdrawal by Shriver, who already had said he would curtail his campaign after poor showings in earlier primaries, leaves seven major Democratic candidates. Five of them — Carter, Wallace, Washington Sen. Henry M. Jackson, Arizona Rep. Morris Udall and former Oklahoma Sen. Fred Harris — are trying for some of North Carolina's 61 convention delegates. Only Southerners Wallace and Carter campaigned heavily there, however. In another campaign development, the Federal Election Commission was scheduled to meet in Washington to certify a final $1 million to presidential candidates. Its authority to give out matching federal funds expires at midnight under a Supreme Court order. Shriver had said earlier he would limit his efforts to Texas' May 1 primary and Maryland's May 8 contest. He said today he would remove his name from the ballot in Maryland, but would not formally withdraw from the Texas contest out of consideration for delegates there. He said that those delegates will not be bound to vote for him and said he was releasing the 11 national convention delegates he already won. The 1972 Democratic vice presidential candidate, who finished third in last week's Illinois primary, said he will spend a w.eek or so vacationing and then is likely to endorse another candidate. "We have not yet by any means seen all the characters who will appear in the play," Shriver said. He generally declined comment on the other candidates, but said Wallace was the only one he could not support. He also said at his Washington, D.C., news conference that he thinks Carter will be "hard to stop." Wallace lost to Carter in Florida and Illinois, but finished ahead of the former Georgia governor in Massachusetts. He won the 1972 North Carolina primary and, discussing the 1976 contest at a Charlotte news conference today, said: "I think we have a chance. In 1972 we sort of slipped up in North Carolina on the group that was opposed to us. This time they are a little better organized." Ford spent some time over the weekend in North Carolina and aides said after he left that they are confident of a sixth straight victory over Reagan, the former California governor. Carter was working elsewhere as the week ended. Reagan had a series of airport appearances today before leaving North Carolina to Hearst Convicted, Faces Another Trial -Staff Photo Places Trophy — Bob Kelly, senior guard for Kuemper High School's basketball team, places the Knights' fourth place trophy on the stage next to the school's sportmanship award at the start of a welcome home ceremony Sunday. The 40-minute program featured 11 speakers, most of whom talked about sportsmanship. Details of the Knights' games, plus pictures, appear on pages 7,8 and 9. City Pays Tribute to Kuemper Knights By Don Davis "It matters not whether you win or lose..." Nearly 1,300 Kuemper High School fans showed the old saying to be true in Carrolland Sunday afternoon as they welcomed home the Kuemper Knights, fourth place finisher at the Iowa boys' high school Class 3A basketball tournament. One topic dominated the 40-minute long ceremony: Sportsmanship. The Knights didn't bring home the state championship trophy — Ames did that. But Kuemper earned the sportsmanship award, given to one school in each class whose team, cheerleaders, fans and coaches show the best sportsmanship at the tournament. Whether it was ,after a hard-fought 58-54 loss to Sioux City Heelan or a s 56-39 battering at the hand of Ames, Kuemper fans were vocal: "We're proud of our Knights." It was hard to tell which team won if all you did was listen to the yelling during the trophy presentation after the 3A consolation game Saturday. Kuemper fans made as much noise as Heelan.fans did. And Sunday's program in the Kuemper gymnasium was built around Kuemper pride and sportsmanship. : Head Coach Wayne Chandlee summed it all up: "I could say, in a way it is a surprising welcome (for a fourth place team), but then again, it isn't, you've been doing it all year." "You had the opportunity to show the people of Iowa Kuemper's good sportsmanship," he continued. "When we went to Des Moines, we didn't just take a basketball team; we didn't just take cheerleaders, we took along the Kuemper spirit," the Rev. James Smith, Kuemper superintendent, said. . Kuemper had nearly 2,000, fans in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines for the Knights' first game — when they whipped Cedar Rapids Washington 57-53 — and their Friday afternoon game with Ames, the state's only undefeated basketball team. KHS had the largest contingent of fans at Saturday afternoon's consolation triple-header. The Knights, their coaches, managers and statisticians left Des Moines Sunday morning and were met by a motor caravan near Ralston. The celebration started at 2 .p.m. The Kuemper cheerleaders placed the sportsmanship trophy on the stage, which drew a standing ovation from the crowd. Later the team came oh and the parade of speakers began. First was Lyle Bernholtz, president of the Carroll Welcome, See Page 2 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Patricia Hearst, convicted of bank robbery by a jury convinced of her guilt by her words and actions as the revolutionary "Tania," faces up to 25 years in prison and another trial on more serious charges. ' Evidence presented by the government to show that the kidnaped newspaper heiress willingly embraced the terrorism of her captors outweighed her testimony that she cooperated with them to save her life, jurors said. "I don't think it was any particular thing at all that led to our finding her guilty," said Marilyn Wentz, a member of the panel that found Miss Hearst guilty of armed bank robbery Saturday after 12 hours of deliberation. "I think it was a combination of all the evidence." Mrs. Wentz, 36, a dental assistant and mother of four from Hay ward, Calif., said in an interview Sunday night, "I know I went over it, and over if— everything — before deciding." She said she thought that both the prosecutor, U.S. Atty. James L. Browning Jr., and chief v defense attorney F. Lee Bailey "did a very good job in presenting the case." Another juror said the ordeal of deliberations was so intense that some members of the panel wept and others became sick to their stomachs. Today, the 22 : year-old Miss Hearst waited behind bars for the unfolding of a fate now in the hands of her judge, attorneys and prosecutors. Sentencing by U.S. District Court Judge Oliver J. Carter is scheduled for April 19. He said Sunday that the maximum penalty he would consider would be 25 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for armed bank robbery. Miss Hearst also was convicted of using a weapon in a felony, which carries a maximum 10-year sentence. But Carter said, "I don't consider that I could impose the second penalty on top of the bank robbery, since that really is included in the first offense." The minimum sentence would be probation. The' heiress to a vast publishing fortune showed no emotion Saturday afternoon when the guilty verdict returned by the seven women Andy Williams' Ex-Wife is Arrested in Ski Star's Death ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Accompanied by her ex-husband Andy Williams, a weeping Claudine Longet appeared in court today in connection with the shooting death o/ professional skier Vladimir "Spider" Sabich. v Miss Longet, an actress and singer, Was told her rights and released on $5,000 personal recognizance bond. She left the court in tears. Miss Longet was freed pending a court appearance April 8 at which Dist. Atty. Frank Tucker said he would file for- mafcharges. _ ! Colorado law allows holding a suspect for "investigation of" an alleged offense until the investigation of a crime is complete and, the district attorney files formal charges. Tucker said Miss Longet was held initially for investigation of criminally negligent homicide to allow her to be advised of her rights in the court hearing. Tucker said he did not know what charge would be filed April 8, but criminally negligent homicide was "probable." Tucker refused to comment on a, statement attributed to City Manager Philip Mahoney. Mahoney reportedly said that Miss Longet told police after the shooting tha^t Sabich was showing her. how to hold a handgun when it discharged accidentally. In the courtroom with Miss Longet was singer Williams, from whom she was divorced last year. He stood to the rear of the courtroom while she was advised of her rights by Pitkin District Court Judge JohnWendt. ' Miss Longet nodded acknowledgement as Wendt told her of her right to a , Sabich, See Page 2 and five men was read in the hushed courtroom. Miss Hearst had testified tearfully that she had joined the April 15, 1974, holdup at a Hibernia Bank branch here after being raped, tortured and threatened with death by the Symbionese Liberation Army band that kidnaped her two months earlier. FEC to Lose Key Powers WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Election Commission loses its most important powers at midnight because Congress has been unable to meet a deadline to cure what the Supreme Court says are the commission's unconstitutional defects. The Supreme Court ruled Jan. 30 that the commission's makeup was unconstitutional because four of its six members were selected by Congress, rather than the president. The court then set a March 1 deadline for Congress to remedy that problem. When that deadline was not met, the court extended the deadline for an extra 20 days. Because there is no chance that Congress can act by midnight, the commission is meeting today to certify another $1 million in matching funds to presidential candidates. Meanwhile, Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said he would meet with other leaders to decide whether to ask the Supreme Court for another extension. However, Mansfield said there .was no guarantee that Congress would be able to meet any further extension either. The commission earlier this year certified $11.6 million to 14 presidential candidates. Once candidates have raised $5,000 in donations of $250 or less in each of 20 states, they are entitled to dollar-for-dollar matching money. The Supreme Court ruling did not abolish the commission but terminated its < powers to pay matching funds. Nor will the FEC be able to FEC, See Page 2 Area Forecast Mostly clear and not as cool Monday night with lows in mid 30s. Sunny and warmer Tuesday with highs near 70.

Former Audubon Resident Runs ^Doctors-Dating Game' AUDUBON, Iowa (AP) -A California firm that "guarantees" it can place a doctor in ' your town for a fee of $3,500 has contracted with more than 25 Iowa communities to do so. "It's kind of a dating game,' 1 says Roger McLaughlin, director of National Health Search Organization (NHSO), a California-based firm. "Many, many communities need doctors, we all know that," McLaughlin said. "And many doctors want to relocate in small communities, but they don't know how to find those communities. That's where we come in. We match the doctors and the communities." The four-year-old company not only guarantees that it will bring a physician to your town, but it also guarantees that he will stay for at least a year, or the company will replace him without charge. There is no time limit on its efforts, although company officials say their national "batting average" is six months. Since there is no time-limit, there is no money-back guarantee if your town doesn't get a doctor in the next six months, or, for that matter, the next six years. No doctors have been placed in the Iowa communities that have contracted with NHSO in the past two months, though officials in some of these towns say they have been given the names of some solid prospects who plan to visit soon. Dr. Carroll Sinnard, who has been practicing in Dubuque since Jan. 1, came after Xavier Hospital officials contacted the Northridge, Calif., firm for help, and not as a result of the work of any NHSO sales representative. "I've had contracts with two other doctors search organizations," said Joe Hiebel, administrator of Xavier hospital. "NHSO was cheaper and they responded with several resumes and we ended up with a doctor in less than a year." But the contract Hiebel negotiated was for $3,000 and included a money-back clause if the firm failed to supply a doctor in a year's time. McLaughlin, 32, who until a month ago was an administrator of the Audubon County Hospital here, said the firm Doctors, See Page 2 campaign in Wisconsin for the April 6 primary there. Wallace's Charlotte news conference was the first stop on a schedule that include a motorcade trip across the southern part of the state and a return to his home in Montgomery, Ala., at day's end. Reagan, in Asheville Sunday, told campaign workers he still believes his challenge to Ford for the GOP nomination is going better than he thought it would when he started. North Carolina "might be the first chance where there is a possibility of a victory," he said. Budget is Approved by Board A $4,863,890 county budget was approved Monday morning by the Carroll County Board of Supervisors. The budget, an increase from the $3,825,049 of this fiscal year, will be financed by a taxation rate of $3.27283 per $1,000 property valuation in cities and $6.03739 per $1,000 valuation of rural property. This means an owner of a $20,000 city home would pay $65.46 to the county between July 1, 1976, and June 30,1977. An owner of a rural $20,000 home would pay $120.75 to finance county government. The largest spending category will be secondary roads, for which $1,906,000 is expected to be spent. The general fund is next at $808,151, including a wide variety of expenditures. No objections to the budget were presented to the board. The budget was adopted unanimously 12 minutes after the hearing began.

Ida Grove Grads Hold Reunion in California HERMOSA BEACH, Calif.(AP) — About 200 high school graduates have held their annual reunion here, halfway across the country from their Ida Grove, Iowa alma mater. "More people from Idy Grove live in Southern California than in Idy Grove so we decided to hold this year's reunion here instead of back there," said 59- year-old Bonnie Bossard, class of '35. "There's no mystery why so many of us left Idy Grove and moved to California," said Art Burgoyne, 84, class of '08. "The ground freezes four feet deep back there in winter." Almost everyone at the Saturday night reunion here called his home town "Idy Grove." "We've always pronounced it Idy instead of Ida," said Vernette Kolb, 60, class of '33. She flew from Ida Grove to attend the reunion on a plane she boarded in Omaha, Neb. It took her two hours by Greyhound bus from Ida Grove to the Omaha airport. Ida Grove, population 2,000, is the county seat of Ida County. Some of the nearby towns, even smaller than Ida Grove, have names like Oto, Holstein, Early, . Yetter and Climbing Hill. "There just wasn't enough to do in Ida Grove," said Phyllis Winslow Yousling, who was the best baton twirler in five Midwest states in the year she graduated, 1941. She led the spirited group in "old Idy High" cheers, even though she had forgotten to bring her baton. Several graduates flew in from Iowa, Nebraska, Montana, Arizona, Oregon and Washington for the reunion. But most just drove to the Kiwanis Clubhouse here from their homes in Long Beach and other Southern California communities. It was the first high school reunion for some of the graduates. "It's made to order," said Bernie Ferguson, 65, of La Jolla. He and Don Kurd, 64,.of San Diego, both class of '29, hitchhiked west after graduating from Ida Grove High. Both eventually became successful Southern California bankers.
