Both lines are major carriers in Iowa. "There is no question but that we must merge with a stronger railroad if our system is to survive," Wallace Abbey of the Milwaukee Road said Monday. Records show his railroad lost at least $19 million last year. But Al Runge, a Burlington Northern spokesman, said his railroad is not sure that it wants to merge with the Milwaukee Road, which has 1,600 miles of track in Iowa. "We're not really looking for a merger partner," said Runge, "but we do want to study any proposal that they might make in Washington." A decision on any merger is •• not expected for several weeks to several months. • Senate (Continued From Page 1) cumbent in one office to resign his position before running for another office. The defeat was on a 25-18 vote. Senators, Who have four-year terms instead of the two-year terms in the House, often run for higher office such as Congress in off years when their Senate seats are not involved in an election contest. This allows them to protect their Senate seat if they are defeated for higher office. The Senate also added a provision, effective next Jan. 1, that would require counties to keep their voter registration lists current by computer. That provision would require all except the 10 largest counties to use state computers and state computer services at cost. Sen. Clifton Lamborn, R-Maquoketa, said present lists are often kept in shoe boxes. The measure would also make it easier for the two political parties to get up-to-date lists of eligible voters. Another provision approved would require that absentee ballots be available in every city of 5,000 population or more. Currently they are available only in county seats. The measure returns to the House for action on amendments. Mrs. Orr said her proposed $5 rebate for voting would cost $18.5 million over a four-year period if all eligible voters took ad vantage of it. "To pay money to people to vote is, inconsistent with our thinking in the United States of America," said Sen. Warren Curtis, R Cherokee. Mrs. Orr labeled her other • proposal "an election participation incentive. ''The Chamber of Commerce or merchants could encourage voting with a tie-in with some of their ads. They could give discounts on proof that the customer voted." She proposed that election judges give out small slips certifying who voted and was eligible for the discounts.

Guilty Verdicts Against Four in 'Drug Pipeline' DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A U.S. District Court jury here Monday returned guilty verdicts against four persons charged in connection with a Chicago to Des Moines heroin pipeline — they acquitted a Des Moines man charged as one of the conspirators. Found guilty of conspiracy were Marsha Binns, 26, and Jewell Anderson, 48, both of Chicago and Walter Jackson, 25, and Joanne Graham, 34, both of Des Moines. The jury acquitted Billy Pickens, 25. According to a Jan, 29 f eder- al grand jury indictment, Marsha Binns was set up in the heroin distribution business by her father and was to oversee the Des Moines operation. The indictment charged Jackson was to provide protection, Graham was one of her dealers and Anderson brought the heroin from Chicago.

This would have the result of reducing farm values about 15 per cent and is a goal long sought by the Iowa Farm Bureau. Kinley's plan would keep the first-year credit in the second year and would not go to the 100 per cent productivity for farms.

Social Security Bill Introduced WASHINGTON (AP) — Legislation eliminating age restriction on Social Security coverage for disabled widows was introduced Monday in the Senate by Sen. Dick Clark, D-Iowa. Presently, only widows over the age of 50 are eligible for disability payments. "Totally disabled widows constitute one-of society's most economically disadvantaged groups," said Clark. "For the widow under the age of 50, it's even worse because her husband probably died at an earlier age, allowing less, time ,to accumulated assets." The Clark bill would amend the Social Security law to eliminate the age restriction on disability payments to totally disabled widows, dependent widowers and surviving divorced wives. It also would equalize disability payments, by eliminating- provisions for reducing payments at younger ages.

Some officers said key tank and marine units were in position for a takeover. The news agency Noticias Argentines reported troop movements in remote areas of northern and southwest Argentina. The Argentine fleet left its base at Belgrano for "operations." sources there said. The newspaper Clarin spoke of the "imminence of changes in the country." "Decisions are awaited in a climate of tension, said La Nacion. "The displacement of military personnel in the capital and interior zones is increasing the climate of expectation." Clear Way for Grading WASHINGTON (AP) —The Supreme Court has cleared the way for the use of a controversial new system for grading cuts of beef. The court Monday let stan4 a decision of the U.S. Circuit Court in St. Louis, which refused to issue an injunction to stop use of the new beef grading standards. The standards have been under review for about a year. The standards for beef went into effect on Feb. 23. They lowered the quality requirements for beef in the "choice" and "prime" grades. The standards were challenged by a coalition of consumer 'groups, labor unions and the independent Meat Packers Association. The standards, which basically would mean some leaner beef would qualify for "choice" and "prime" grades, have prompted some resistance from cattle feeders, who say they have lost money because of the changes.

Brown said he found the body about 10:30 p.m. Sunday after a cellmate called out. Curttright was being held with three other persons on charges of conspiracy, to kidnap and attempted breaking and entering. Brown said the four were arrested late Wednesday in the Mills County town of Silver City after they allegedly tried to break into the home of Kenneth Carlson, senior vice president of the Mills County State Bank in Silver City. Carlson told authorities he heard voices outside his home saying that Carlson wasn't in the house, but that they would enter and wait for him. Carlson called the sheriff's office and the four were ar- v rested shortly after. Charged with Curttright were Jack L. Simms and Kenneth Jensen, both believed to be of Plattsmouth, and a 14-year-old boy. Warren Commission Hassle WASHINGTON (AP) -The W a r r e nCommission was wracked by a sharp internal dispute when it decided to omit from its final report any mention of a newspaper article that quoted Fidel Castro as threatening the lives of U.S. leaders. "We got into a serious hassle with it," Wesley J. Liebeler, a former commission staff member, said of the news article. A recent CIA memo cited the article as a promising lead that "must be considered of great significance" in examining the possibility that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was the work of a foreign conspiracy. According to Liebeler, the news story was not mentioned in the commission's final report because there was no evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald had read it. Liebeler, now a law professor at UCLA, added that he personally was convinced that Oswald had read the story, since it appeared in a New Orleans newspaper at a time when Oswald, who was known as an avid newspaper reader, was living there. ' » , •., , -.\. Hearst Should Be Paroled SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The psychiatric expert who labeled Patricia Hearst "a queen of the Symbionese Liberation Army" says the young heiress should be granted probation after her bank robbery conviction. "I think she should get probation with time served, which should be about six months now," Dr. Joel Fort told The Associated Press. "I hope society would not be vindictive toward her... . She should be seen as a convicted bank robber who has no previous criminal record and is in her early 20s. Society should not practice overkill. . < "The maximum reasonable sentence should be five years-, which probably is less than two years actual time,'' he said in an interview Monday. Actress Released A.SPEN, Colo. (AP) — Singer-actress Claudine Longet faces an April 8 court appearance and a possible charge of criminally negligent homicide in the shooting death of ski star Vladimir "Spider" Sabich. Miss Longet was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond on Monday after a 22-minute court hearing on the death of Sabich, 31. He was killed Sunday evening when struck in the abdomen by a bullet fired from a handgun. Her eyes red from crying. Miss Longet, 34, was read her rights and left the courthouse in this Rocky Mountain ski resort town with singer Andy Williams, her former husband. Dist. Atty. Frank Tucker said Miss Longet and her three children had been living with Sabich for the past two years. She first met the skier in 1972, after she was separated from Williams. The entertainers were divorced last September. Problems for Russians WASHINGTON (AP) - An Egyptian order ousting the Russian navy from the port of Alexandria would cause the Russians problems in maintaining their diesel submarines in the Mediterranean, Pentagon officials say. U.S. intelligence sources expect Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to issue such an order in the wake of his repudiation last week of a treaty of friendship and cooperation with the Soviet Union. If such an order is issued, the sources said, the Russians probably will put pressure on friendly Arab countries such as Libya and Syria Jo allow their ports to be used for support of the Soviet Mediterranean fleet. In the past, Libya has resisted Soviet efforts to gain base rights, although Libya has drawn politically close to Russia and has bought large amounts of Soviet weapons. Syria is heavily dependent on Russia for grants of weapons and might be less able to fend off Russian pressure.
