Butz Plans Globe-Girdling Fact Finding Tour WASHINGTON (AP) - A globe-girdling trip planned by Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz next month will put him in direct contact with forc-ign officials involved in some of the most sensitive issues related to U.S. farmers. For example, Butz will visit New Zealand and Australia in the first leg of his 20-day trip, scheduled to begin April 11. Those countries are the leading suppliers of foreign beef to the United States and have been criticized at times by American livestock interests for allegedly trying to dump surplus meat on the U.S. market. Butz will deliver what aides Thursday called "a major speech" in Wellington, N.Z., at a meeting of farm organ- New Book Tells of Nixon's Last Days NEW YORK (AP) - A new book reportedly paints a picture of former President Richard M. Nixon drinking too much, weeping and threatening suicide during his last days in the White House. The former president's suicide talk so disturbed his aides, according to reports on the book, that they removed all medication from his medicine chest. The book is "The Final Days," by Watergate reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of 'The Washington Post. Time Magazine and the New York Daily News say it has been closely guarded prior to its publication next month by Simon and Schuster and serialization of excerpts beginning Monday in Newsweek. According to the report in Time, as amplified by columnist Liz Smith of the Daily News, the book relates that in the days before his resignation Nixon spent much of his time drinking in a small office in the Executive Office Building, either alone or with Press Secretary Ron Ziegler. The News says that Nixon's son-in-law, David Eisenhower, expressed concern for Nixon's mental condition, reporting to an aide that he had seen the president, intoxicated, talking to the portraits of former presidents. Time says that as the end neared\ Nixon asked Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to kneel and pray with him, saying: "You are not a very orthodox Jew and I am not an orthodox Quaker, but we need to pray." The News says that after the prayer Nixon began crying, screaming and beating his fists on the floor. " Even though Ziegler was one of the former president's few confidantes in the final days. Time says, the press secretary sometimes became the object of Nixon's temper and that Nixon was heard on one occasion screaming at Ziegler, "Get out! Get out!" When Nixon summoned his family, wife, daughters and sons-in-law, for a final White House photograph, says Time, White House photographer Ollie Atkins had to shoot for izations during his visit April 13-15. Next, in Sidney, he will participate in ah Australian symposium at the annual Royal Easter Livestock Show. Australia also is a major grain export competitor of the United States. Other countries on Butz' itinerary include Indonesia, Ma- some time to get a picture which did not show tears on any of their faces. Woodward and Bernstein's investigative reporting about the Watergate burglary and coverup won a Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post. They are also authors of "All the President's Men," a book about their work on uncovering the scandals. It has been made into a movie. Conference on Faith-Healing INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — The United Methodist church is sponsoring a conference on faith healing at Simpson College and the First United Methodist Church here Friday and Saturday. The conference, the first under official Methodist sponsorship, will feature two evening healing services and 14 workshops. Church officials said the conference is an expression of a growing interest in the role of Christian faith in the healing process. The practice has long been advocated and practiced in along some denominations, but only recently has grown in "mainline" Protestant churches and the Catholic Church, officials said. laysia, Singapore, Greece, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal.

Producer groups say palm oil imports help depress the price of soybeans, normally the major source for U.S. vegetable oil. While in Singapore, Butz will take part in a conference of U.S. agricultural officers posted in Peking and Hong Kong, who are expected to discuss farm and trade developments in China. Agricultural attaches serving in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia also will be at the Singapore meeting set for April 22. In Geneva, Butz will confer with the U.S. delegation to the multilateral trade negotiations now being held in Switzerland under rules of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.. One objective of those talks is to gain more open access for U.S. farm products in world markets. Butz will meet with government officials on "future trade opportunities and problems" in Greece, Bulgaria, Spain and Portugal. In Madrid, he will speak April 29 at a meeting of the Mediterranean Foundation on "Food: The Main Problem of World Development." Heartland Adds Services to Area Schools Heartland Area Education Agency took over the duties of the Carroll County School Board July 1,1975, and added several services not previously available to school systems in Carroll and 10 other counties it serves. Heartland is the largest of 15 area education agencies in Iowa in both area anct,the number of students it serves. Heartland extends from Carroll and Audubon Counties on the west to Jasper and Marion Counties, east of Des Moines. , Heartland works with local school districts to provide "educational support services," such as a film and other media library, social workers, psychologists, speech clinicians, curriculum and staff development and computer services. Tim Pepper from Adel works out of offices in Carroll, Audubon, Adel and Guthrie Center. He is in each city one day a week. Heartland is usually thought of as a service provider for handicapped persons. This is a major area for the agency. The agency's special education programs are aimed at anyone with a hearting, or speech defect, or who is mentally retarded or learning^ disabled from birth to 21 years of age, Pepper said. Dr. Bruce Lomard of Heartland said 119 retarded or learning disabled students were studying in Carroll County last year. Now the agency has 185 such children identified, due in a large part to added financial aid received. Next year 257 children are expected to participate in such programs, he said. There are about 6,000 students in the county. One aim of Heartland, Lombard said, is to serve children under five years of age who are handicapped. Anyone with such a child at home should contact their local elementary school principal. Pepper credits Heartland with setting up two learning disabilities rooms in the Carroll Community School District, as well as a class for the trainable mentally disabled at Grant No. 5 and four programs for the educable mentally disabled. He said Glidden-Ralston now has a multi-disability resource room, a class for trainable mentally disabled students and a learning disabilities resource room. Manning schools have gained a resource room for *> What does it cost to build a new school or fix the streets in your town? The public has a right to know what it costs to build or improve a street or building in your town. Your local newspaper is the publication where you find that information. For centuries, people have recognized the right of the community and of the individual to be put on notice. Many citizens don't understand what a legal notice is, or why they're printed in your local newspaper. Many people don't read them until it's too late. Legal notices keep a citizen informed on all school, city and county action by official bodies. Legal notices also give a citizen an opportunity to do something about some proposed action that may affect his rights. Your local newspaper is a long established medium for such notices as provided by law or by official designation. And, it's one of the many public services provided by this newspaper. ! NEWSPAPERS DELIVER THE LOCAL STORY. -• IOWA PRESS ASSOCIATION AN AFFILIATION OF 385 WEEKLY AND DAILY NEWSPAPERS educable mentally disabled students, a class for trainable mentally disabled children and a learning disabilities resource room, Pepper said. Coon Rapids has been able to add a learning disabilities resource room, he added. In some cases, Pepper continued, partial programs of these services were provided last school year. For instance, the learning disabilities rooms were handled by teachers provided by the county board of education who travelled between schools. Many mentally disabled students were sent to Carroll schools (parents paid tuition) last year, "but now are served a lot closer to home," because • of Heartland's additions, Pepper said. However, many of the services and personnel from the old county board have been carried over to Heartland. Heartland, headquartered in Ankeny, has several persons working out of the Carroll office in the old post office building. The Carroll secretary is Jean Running, psychologist Dave Farrell, speech clinicians Karen Thompson, Ellen Madsen, Janice Sargent and Dixie Sablka, educational audiologist Sandra Hobson, audiometrist Velaine Curlile (half-time) and vocational rehabilitatiohist Buckley Peterson. Also working out of the Carroll office part of the time are Deone Bachellor and Sharon Schiller. Heartland is divided into five zones. Carroll is in the western zone. Other county headquarters /in the zone are in Audubon, Guthrie Center and Adel. Heartland's media service for schools, located in Ankeny, has in its library 7,500 films, 30,000 booklets and 600 to 700 pieces in its professional library. New curriculum materials are also displayed for teachers. Agency finances are obtained from local property taxes and the state school foundation aid program. For Heartland, $24.93 per pupil is raised from local property taxes being added on top of the local school tax asking. The remaining $29.20 is raised through the state aid program. The agency divides its financing into three areas: Media services, educational services and special education. Property taxes go to all three divisions: of the $24.93 per pupil total coming from property tax, $5.87 goes to media; $10.26 to educational (such as curriculum development, research and educational data processing), and $8.80 goes to special education. All of the $29.20 from state aid goes to special education. Per pupil cost of Heartland is $54.13, which is 30 to 35 cents per pupil more than was spent before the area agency took over.
