On Strike at NBC SAN DIEGO (AP) — Ignoring a federal call for extended negotiations, about 1,700 engineers and technicians went on strike against the National Broadcasting Co. today. Spokesmen for the network said supervisors would man the video cameras and transmitters operated by the engineers and that the walkout would not affect NBC's regular programming. A number of news writers in New York, Chicago and NBC's Burbank, Calif., studios also were expected to take part in the strike. There were no further negotiations scheduled, Bernard Stoler, a negotiator for the National Association of Broadcast Employes and Technicians (NABET), said. The walkout began at 12:01 a.m. EST, ending more than six weeks of bargaining in San Diego between the network and NABET. Richard Goldstein, NBC vice president in charge of labor relations, called the strike premature and unwise. NABET president Edward Lynch refused to talk to reporters after the strike was called. On Wednesday, NBC accepted a last-minute proposal by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service to extend the old contract one month and resume bargaining talks in Washington on April 19. But NABET refused, saying the federal offer "coincides with the company's objective of stalling the negotiations." NABET,also turned down an NBC wage offer, the terms of which were not disclosed. Goldstein would not elaborate on the issues involved in the strike, which are said to be complex. A union spokesman noted that the old NBC contract with NABET is some 300 pages long. Tries to Lure Doctor to Iowa From London PARKERSBURG, Iowa (AP) — A Parkersburg businessman is trying to entice doctors from London to practice their profession in this Butler County community of 1,631. . Mansel Ocheltree, founder of O's Gold Seed Co., held a news conference in England last weekend to extol the virtures of practicing medicine here. He also has placed "Doctors Wanted" advertisements in foreign newspapers. Parkersburg's only physician, Dr. Floyd Rolfs, is scheduled to retire soon, and Mayor Orval Hasty said the community would like to have two or three doctors move to the town. "Mansel has agreed to put up some money for a new clinic building. The city has a site for it — the land where the old high school building was," the mayor said. Ocheltree said in London that a doctor in Parkersburg could expect to earn at least $50,000 annually. "That's two or three times as much as the prime minister of England makes," Hasty said. JAMES M. CRANDALL LAKE CITY — James John Crandall, 74, of Lake City died early Thursday, April 1, at Stewart Memorial Hospital here after a short illness. He was a retired employe of the Chicago and North Western Railway. Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Huffman Memorial Chapel hare, with the Rev. Stewart Congdon officiating. Burial will be in Lake Creek Cemetery. Friends may call at Huffman's after 10 a.m. Friday. Mr. Crandall, son of Horace B. arid Maria Davies Crandall, was born here March 23,1902, and was a lifelong Lake City resident. He was married to Agnes Ericson at Storm Lake Aug. 25, 1928. He was a member of the Lake City Union Church. Surviving with his wife are two sons, Daryl L. of Rockwell City and Joel 0. of Mountain Grove, Mo.; two daughters, Mrs. John (Darlene) Budeslich of Des Moines and Mrs. Robert (Rae Jean) Schmitz of White Bear Lake, Minn.; and 13 grandchildren.

Catholic School to Build New Auditorium CLINTON, Iowa (AP) — Plans for a $400,000 Central Catholic auditorium-gymnasium complex to be built on the grounds at St. Mary's School here were announced Wednesday by church and school administrators. Plans for the building include a 94-foot gym floor, a stage at one end and seating capacity of more than 2,000. Estimated cost of the project, including gym, auditorium, renovation of the current heating plant and classrooms is $400,000. Officials plan to raise the money from businesses and private individuals. Trucks (Continued From Page 1) week to get (trucks) back up." Cade admitted he was "not necessarily in sympathy with the strike. But I'm going to go along with it." Charles Burns, Kansas City, isn't directly involved in the strike, but he's convinced it will have an impact on him. Burns is a private carrier working for Associated Grocers, Inc. He said some of the groceries arriving at his firm's warehouses are hauled by teamster drivers. "Our warehouses will hold only so much," Burns observed. "They'll just run out of merchandise. I think we have three weeks to survive on." Burns said his teamsters' union "has never been on strike for 19 years" in Kansas City. He said the circle of increased-wage demands and higher prices for products "has to end somewhere. But I don't know where." • Morrison (Continued From Page F) difference is the big increase in wine sales over the years.

Wheat reacted to a negative tone in Wednesday's market and after falling at the opening, made modest gains of as much as 2 cents. Oats climbed about a cent. There was little interest in corn which sank slightly. Soybeans were mixed with no fresh news to stimulate activity'. Brazilian competition continued today but at a low pace. Soybean oil and meal were mixed. Wall Street NfcW YORK (AP) —The stock market fell back today, erasing Wednesday's gains amid concern over the potential effects of the national trucking strike. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was off 7.32 at 992.13, and losers outpaced.gainers by more than a 3-2 margin among New York Stock Exchange-listed issues. Analysts said investors were worried that the trucking strike that began early today would interfere with the progress of the economic recovery. Another factor in the decline was a Senate subcommittee's approval of a • bill to break up the big oil companies, although the subcommittee action had been expected. License for Elks' Renewed IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa City Elks Club is a legal private club because, although it bars women from membership, it also restricts males who can join, Iowa City City Atty. John Hayek said. Based on that opinion, the City Council has renewed the liquor license of the Elks Club. The council delayed action on the matter last week in the wake of a city inquiry on the legal status of various private clubs here. Specifically, the city has focused on a new restaurant, Grace and Ruble's, which restricts membership to women. The report noted that the only criterion for membership in the restaurant is to be a woman. COURT HOUSE New Vehicles Registered- Albert J. Irlbeck, Westside, Oldsmobile, and Robert B. or Dorothy M.

Till, Lot 21, Block 16, Applewood Strike (Continued From Page 1) back to Washington at this time. I stay here as long as there is any movement. . .. We'll continue to be here." The union's bargaining position remained the same throughout the talks: A three- year contract providing for an u n 1 i m i t'e d cost-of-living increase, a $1.75 hourly salary increase over the life of the contract and an additional $17 weekly in pension, health and welfare benefits. The industry firmly opposed an uncapped cost-of-living increment. The walkout was the first nationwide strike by Teamsters since the union began to negotiate one agreement in 1964. It triggered fears by the Ford administration of an economic relapse, particularly if the strike is of any duration, since much of the nation's commerce travels by highway. As Mclntyre and Fitzsimmons spoke, drivers halted their rigs in at least 18 states. Union leaders in Buffalo, N. Y., sent pickets to 100 trucking firms. In Connecticut, the union asked shop stewards to set up pickets at trucking terminals throughout the state. Token-picketing seemed to be taking place in Worcester, Mass., where police spotted four pickets at two companies. Boston police said they had no reports of pickets. In Allentown, Pa., and six of the state's eastern counties, pickets manned trucking terminals. Extensive picketing was reported in Detroit; several Ohio cities; Newark, N.J.; Nashville and Memphis, Tenn.; and Richmond, Va. Other extensive picketing was reported in Connecticut and the Carolinas. "•'•Some picketing 'Was reported in New Orleans; Little Rock, Ark.; Des Moines, Iowa; St. Louis; Minneapolis and Duluth, Minn.; Kansas City, Mo.; and Los Angeles. But in Chicago, Teamsters officials said their members were told to report for work. Chicago's 40,000 drivers have been negotiating their contract separately from the National Master Freight Agreement. Roadway Express, Inc., one of the largest carriers east of the Mississippi, said it is not sending any trucks outside the Chicago area. Supervisors said ordinarily 80 to 100 trucks are sent over the road daily but that there was no guarantee that other terminals would be in operation. Government officials earlier in the week reportedly began gathering data needed for obtaining an injunction under the Taft-Hartley Act. The process requires a president-appointed board of inquiry to determine that the "national health or safety" is endangered. Then the President may order the Justice Department to seek a court injunction halting the strike. An injunction can be . issued for up to 80 days. Under the now-expired contract, Teamsters earn $7.18 to $7.33 an hour, plus $44 in weekly benefits. Furthermore, longhaul drivers get 18 cents a mile. The union has demanded another 3Vz cents per mile, while the industry has offered 2 cents a mile more. Knolls Addition, Carroll. Bierl Development Corp. to Jerry W. and Elaine C.

Edward Mezvinsky, D-Iowa, said Wednesday he will seek reelection to another term in Congress from Iowa's 1st District. Mezvinsky was first elected to Congress in 1972 and was reelected two years later. He is a member of the House Judiciary and Government Operations committees. • Taxes (Continued From Page 1) appeal to a state board. Cities under 750 population would not be affected by the limit. In the second and third years, the homestead, credit would be extended to the first $5,000 of the value of the residence while the farm land tax credit would revert to the usual $18 million. „ In addition, farms would be valued 100 per cent on productivity instead of the current 50 per cent earning capacity and 50 per cent cash value. This would average a 15 per cent reduction in farm valuations. The increase in homestead credit the second year is designed so that urban and rural areas get an approximately equal tax break, Kinley said. Senate Appropriations Comm i 11 e e Chairman William Palmer, D-Des Moines, said the plan would cost the state $15 million more than recommended by Gov. Robert Ray for tax relief in the first "two years. - -' The Weather IOWA FORECAST Mostly sunny today. Highs in 50s east and 60s west. Clear tonight. Lows in 30s. Partly cloudy and mild Friday.

Reagan Hits Ford, Kissinger LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former California Gov. Ronald Reagan has made a sweeping attack on the Ford administration — from Henry Kissinger's handling of foreign policy to the economy. In his first national television speech as a 1976 Republican presidential contender, Reagan said Wednesday night that Ford had not done a good job pulling the nation out of its recession. But Reagan's most stinging remarks during the 30-minute national broadcast were in the area of foreign affairs. He said he doesn't want to live "in a world where the Soviet Union is No. 1," and he quoted Kissinger as saying his job as secretary of state is to negotiate for an acceptable second-place position. "Dr. Kissinger is quoted as saying that he thinks of the United States as Athens and the Soviet union as Sparta," said Reagan. "'The day of the United States is past,'" Reagan quoted Kissinger as saying, '"and today is the day of the Soviet Union.' And he added, '. . . My job as secretary of state is to negotiate the most acceptable second-best position available.'" In Washington, Kissinger's top aide, Lawrence Eagleburger* said the quotation Reagan attributed to the secretary was false "and "totally irresponsible." Reagan did not cite a source for the statement he attributed to Kissinger, but a Reagan.campaign spokesman said it came from Adm. Elmo Zumwalt, the former chief of Naval operations who now is running for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate in Virginia. Zumwalt, who was reportedly in London and not immediately available for comment, has been sharply critical of Kissinger. Zumwalt made comments similar to 1 those used by Reagan in his forthcoming book, "On Watch," in which he recounts what he says are notes taken after a meeting with Kissinger more than five years ago. Reagan said peace will not , come from weakness or re-^ trea.t, "it domes from the .restoration of American mililary superiority." Reagan said he spent $86,000 to buy time for the speech, taped here Tuesday, on the National Broadcasting Co. to underscore what' he considers the major issues of his GOP campaign challenge to Ford. Reagan, whose campaign reportedly ha's been experiencing financial problems, suggested viewers write or mail contributions in care of a post office box or wire messages of support or money immediately "by looking up the 800 number for Western Union, in your white pages." On the economy, Reagan was critical of a bill passed by Congress and signed by Ford which gives pay raises to congressmen when the cost of living goes up. Mission to Be Closed DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) The Dubuque Rescue Mission, a haven for transients since the Great Depression, will be closed. "We have decided that the purpose we serve is no longer necessary in society today as it was 30 years ago," said Les Hartley, chairman of the rescue mission's board of directors. He said the mission is going broke, and there is little chance it can continue to hold its x own since it seeks public support with supplemental income from money raised in a second-hand store. No closing date has been set. • House (Continued From Page 1) discovery rights to defendants as well as other rights'causing additional work for county attorneys," Kreamer said. t "Now we are saying that despite all that extra work, county attorneys must bring cases to trial in a shorter time."' . He said prosecutors would. have to make "judgment calls" about which cases to bring to trial and which to dismiss. . : ; "They naturally will try the ones that attract the most publicity and dismiss the others,'.' Krearrier said. "Your constituents and mine ape hot going to tolerate wholesale dismissals." Briefly Agree on Truce BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Leftist leader Kamal Jun'blatt agreed conditionally today to a five-day cease fire in Lebanon's civil war to allow election of a new president. ... ... Christian President Suleiman Franjieh would have to resign within the same period, Junblatt told correspondents after a crucial strategy session with his allies. .. , There was no immediate comment from Franjieh. Syria earlier today threatened military intervention in Lebanon's civil war unless Junblatt's forces agreed to a ceasefire. . A Damascus statement said continued warfare would lead to partition of the country, "the biggest crisis in the Arab world's history.'' Frisco Strike Continues SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The municipal bus system, which carries 250,000 persons daily, recreation facilities and most public works departments were shut down today for the second day by several thousand striking city employes. Labor leaders said picketing would spread today to two city-county hospitals. Four locals of the Service Employes International Union (SEIU), representing about 9,000 hospital, custodial, clerical and'social workers, pledged to honor the picket lines. But the SEIU itself didn't join the strike, and that news buoyed City Hall hopes of avoiding a general walkout. Senate Defeats No-Faulf WASHINGTON (AP) — Advocates of a national no-fault, automobile insurance law are taking their battle to the House after a defeat in the Senate that may end all chances for the bill this year. Many backers see little chance of success in the House, where a similar no-fault bill died in 1974. "I don't think it's hopeless, but I must admit it's a difficult situation," Sen. Frank E. Moss, D-Utah, said Wednesday. The Senate had just voted 49 to 45 to return the legislation to the Commerce Committee for further study, a move to effectively kill the measure. No-fault.had been seen by consumer groups as one of the major consumer issues of the year, but it was strongly opposed by lawyers, who saw it as a threat to theirlegal business arising from automobile accidents, and b'y the White House. Storm Blamed for Crash WASHINGTON (AP) — Government safety experts indicated today that a thunderstorm was at least partly responsible for the worst single airplane disaster in U.S. history when an Eastern Airlines jet crashed last June while trying to land at New-York's Kennedy airport, killing 113 of the 123 persons aboard. The National Transportation Safety Board, in a broader study of storm impact on safety, also said concern by pilots and air controllers about storms might lessen when the aircraft are near the terminal because the uninterrupted traffic flow becomes of greater concern. • • The New York storm was so severe that the chances of a safe landing were only marginal, the board said today. * The board also said that "In the case of Flight 66, (the Eastern flight), impact might possibly have been avoided had the flight crew recognized the onset of the descent rate more quickly." .Detroit Budget Crisis DETROIT (AP) - The City of Detroit is struggling with a budget crisis this week that almost certainly will lead to thousands of layoffs and further deterioration of city services. , , The numbers involved seem paltry against the , figures that added up to the fiscal crisis in New York City, but Detroit officials say they are critical nonetheless. Detroit has a budget of about $790 million and a deficit of about $40 million in the fiscal year ending June 30. New York City's budget this year is about 15 times as large, but its accumulated deficit is 25 times - greater than Detroit's. Mayor Coleman Young estimates, and no one is challenging his figures, that without increased tax revenues, the gap will grow to $103 million in the year ending June 30,1977. •Michigan law demands that Young submit a balanced 1967-77 budget by Friday and that any budget deficit this year must be paid off in the next fiscal year. N.Y. Averts Transit Strike NEW YORK (AP) - Fiscally strapped New York City averted a potentially crippling transit strike early today when negotiators for city bus and subway workers tentatively agreed to accept a two-year labor contract.that provides point-for-point cost-of-living raises. . About 30 minutes before the 34,000 members of the local Transit Workers Union were due to strike Transit Authority Chairman David Yunich announced, "I have some good news for all New Yorkers We have reached an agreement.',' Yunich said the agreement calls for a cost-of-living hike of one cent an hour for each ,3-point increase in the city's cost-of-living index, meaning the transit workers' pay — which now averages $16,541 a year — will increase as inflation does. There also is a wage-reppener clause to be invoked "in the event any city union receives benefits better than this contract" during the current fiscal crisis, Yunich said
