Ralston Drive to Raise Funds for Recreation RALSTON — A group of Ralston citizens has organized a campaign here to raise funds to build a combination tennis and basketball court. A recreation program committee, headed by Annie Johnson, has been collecting old newspapers the past two weeks in Ralston, Carroll, Jefferson and Coon Rapids. The paper will be. sold to a company that makes insulation. Miss Johnson said. Miss Johnson and the others spend each Saturday in one of the cities collecting old newspapers. Response from the public "has been real good," she said. About six or seven tons of newsprint has been collected so far, she said. The committee would like to keep the paper drive going for six or eight more weeks. It is hoped enotigh money will -be raised by the newspaper drive and from other sources so that construction can be started this summer, she added. Collectors for old newspapers will be in Jefferson Saturday. They tentatively plan to be in Gibson's" parking lot in Carroll April 10. • Taxes (Continued From Page 1) things pretty fast." The plan would include additional property tax relief for the elderly and the regular annual increase in state school aid. • Although the plan would mean higher property taxes for most in the coming years, the increase would be less than if nothing is done. Last fall's property equalization order by the State Revenue Department increased property valuations by an average of 30 per cent statewide with farm values increased much more in some counties. Breaking at Glidden GLIDDEN - Four break-ins occurred here Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, Sheriff John G. Longnecker reported. Money ana other goods were taken from Glidden Farm Equipment and Doug and Mike's Tavern. Apparently nothing was taken at break-ins at A. Moorhouse Lumber Co. and the Village Clinic, Longnecker said. The sheriff said he thinks one or two persons broke into all three buildings, but has no suspects. Less than $50 in cash was taken from Glidden Farm Equipment, Longnecker said. A door in the shop area was pried open to gain entry, he added A portable safe was extensively damaged as the thieves tried to get to the money. The shop's own tools were used to break into the safe, Longnecker said. The same tools were later used at the lumber yard, he said. A "fairly new" 17-inch color television set was taken from the tavern, the sheriff said. An undetermined amount of change was taken from six pinball and similar machines, he said. Some beer and cigarettes also were taken. Entry was gained by prying open a front door. Although nothing was taken from the Moorhouse firm, a walk-in safe was damaged in an attempt to break into it, Longnecker said. A sliding door was lifted off its tracks so the thieves could enter the firm. Nothing was taken from the Village Clinic either, but some damage was done to a door.

That ruling came in the murder trial of Michael Peterson of Storm Lake and was the basis for ordering a new trial for Peterson. Kreamer urged keeping the Senate's more restricted discovery rule. It would permit the defense to take depositions only if it can convince the judge they are necessary to assure a fair trial. It also would allow the prosecution to take similar depositions from prospective defense witnesses. The Senate version would cost the taxpayers less money, Kreamer said. That's "price tag justice," retorted Oakley, which leaves it to the discretion of the judge whether the defense can even exercise the right of. discovery in criminal cases. "I think it's a fundamental right of a defendant, even though it is not a constitutional right, and it shouldn't have a price tag on it," Oakley said. He added that pretrial discovery by the defense might even save money for both sides because "you might find out early that a witness was lying." Bernard J.

Board 1 of Trade CHICAGO (AP) - Farm futures prices slid slightly on the Chicago Board of Trade today, dissipating any momentum gained from Tuesday's upswing. Wheat paced the decline, losing as much as 3 '/a cents a bushel. Even an expected tender by Pakistan for 100,000 tons of wheat did not have a positive impact. Soybean prices skidded as much as 3 cents. Corn and oats posted slight losses with short covering expected to be an upbeat influence on corn. There was little export news to generate extensive buying or selling in corn. Soybean oil was mixed while soybean meal retreated. Iowa Ranks Near Top in Bicentennial (Iowa Dally Press Association) DES MOINES - Over 600 Iowa cities have been designated as official bicentennial communities by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration. Iowa ranks second in the nation, only behind Pennsylvania, in the number of cities cited by the AREA. "We're trying to beat Pennsylvania out," said Ed Redfern, deputy director of the Iowa bicentennial commission. The deadline for nominating cities as bicentennial communities has been extended by the national organization from March 31 to April 7. "Our last report shows that Pennsylvania had 654 communities designated," Redfern said. "We know a lot of communities in Iowa have not asked to be recognized. All they have to do is to call our office and we'd be glad to assist them," Redfern said. A city designated as a bicentennial community receives a certificate, a national bicentennial flag, and they will be listed in a book that will be placed in a time capsule that is not opened for another 100 years.

The Ford administration could seek a court injunction under the Taft-Hartley Act if a strike is called, forcing an 80- day cooling-off period during which trucks presumably would stay on the nation's highways. But some of the more militant Teamsters have spoken of wildcat strike action should the administration resort to that. The U.S. Transportation Department has begun analyzing the over-all economic impact of a strike to provide the Ford administration with data that would be needed to obtain a court injunction. The department refused to elaborate on its analysis, but Robert Binder, assistant director for policy in Washington, said, "If a complete strike would last any length of time it would have a very serious effect on the economy." SURGICAL PATIENT BREDA — Mrs. Lonnie Kropf of Breda pnderwent major surgery at St. Anthony Regional Hospital/Carroll, Monday. She is in Room 330. Truck Talks Continue ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, 111. (AP) - Teamsters union and trucking industry negotiators remained "far apart" on crucial money issues today as the midnight deadline for a nationwide truck strike approached, <•. federal labor officials said. Labor Secretary W.J. Usery Jr. said contract negotiations were bogged down over four or five economic issues. Although he declined to elaborate, those issues reportedly include a difference of 75 cents an hour in wage increases, $6 a week in other benefits and cost-of-living allowances. Usery and James Scearce, acting head of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, planned to continue meeting with both sides today in anticipation of the midnight expiration of the National Master Freight Agreement. The current contract covers about 400,000 truckers and warehousemen who move about 60 per cent of the nation's total output of manufactured goods. Usery reported late Tuesday night that some progress was being made and said he felt enough time remained to fashion a settlement. No Evacuation Plans WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said today the United States is not currently planning an evacuation of Americans from war-wracked Lebanon but that the Navy is ready if evacuation becomes necessary. A special U.S. envoy, L. Dean Brown, who coordinated the task force that oversaw the U.S. evacuation of Americans and refugees from Saigon, is en route to Lebanon to seek a truce and settlement in the volatile Lebanese civil war. Rumsfeld was asked on the C B S-TV "Morning News" whether the United States is planning to remove the 1,450 Americans presently in Lebanon. He replied with a crisp: "No, indeed." "We are hopeful that will not be required," Rumsfeld said. "The goal is to achieve a ceasefire.''

The trade mission said Tuesday at a news conference that purchases probably will exceed the amount specified in the agreement, although spokesmen said they could not estimate how much in additional commodities might be sought. Biggest Railroad Merger WASHINGTON (AP) — When seven financially weak railroads are merged into a new government-backed railroad today in the largest corporate reorganization in U.S. history, such well-known railroads as the Penn. Central and the^Erie Lackawanna,will cease operating'. '..

Evidence 'Insufficient' • • -T WASHINGTON (AP) — The Civil Aeronautics Board said today there is insufficient evidence to establish that former Army Secretary Howard H. Callaway violated CAB regulations in obtaining special landing rights for charter planes near the Colorado ski resort he controls. But the board said it is sending its report and materials it gathered during its investigation to the' Department of Justice at for use in its investigation ' into the matter. The CAB said the Justice Departmen had requested the report and materials. The board also said it was sending its report and investigative materials to the Defense Department because Callaway held the Pentagon post. City Workers Strike SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Some 1,900 city workers, faced with pay cuts, struck here early today, posting, pickets at the municipal bus depot and shutting down service. The city immediately obtained a temporary restraining order against the strike by streetsweepers, electricians, carpenters and other building-trades workers. . Mayor George Moscone said he hoped the court order would prevent disruptive picketing around city buildings, but there were indications other city unions that have accepted new contracts with the city would, honor the picket lines. ' The walkout could eventually affect more than 18,000 city workers, plus longshoremen who would probably honor the picket lines. Policemen, firemen and the the bus drivers; themselves were not involved in the strike. N.Y. Faces Transit Strike NEW YORK (AP) — The Transit Authoritx and Ws workers were reportedly locked in immovable positions over productivity issues today as talks continued to avert a midnight strike that could leave, three million subway and bus riders stranded. "Things don'i look good at all," said Mayor Abraham D. Beame as corporations booked blocks of hotel rooms, fpr employes and the city made emergency plans to cope with a strike that could bring New York to a grinding halt. The 34,000 bus and subway workers are demanding cost-of-living raises and other increases for which the Transit Authority insists it has no money. Productivity gains — eliminating such things as paid lunch hours — could provide money for raises, the Transit Authority said. But the transit workers' union responded it would give up nothing won in past contracts. f I ;•
