April 7. 1976 — Twenty-two Pages Two Sections Delivered by Carrier Kach Kvcmng (or 60c Per Week 15c Single Copy Divided Demo Verdicts Could Be Boon to Humphrey Carter Upsets Udall; Jackson, Ford Win By Walter R.Mears (AP Special Correspondent) Jimmy Carter and Henry M. Jackson gained the victories but in the end, the divided Democratic verdicts of the Wisconsin and New York presidential primary elections could prove a boon to the man who wasn't there — Sen Hubert H.Humphrey. President Ford won his sixth Republican primary, winning easily over challenger Ronald Reagan in Wisconsin. But the drama was packed into the Democratic contest there, a race that turned around early today and tipped into Carter's column as the final votes were counted, hours Norgaard New U.W. Chairman John Norgaard was elected chairman of the board of directors of the United Way of Carroll, Inc., Tuesday afternoon. He has been a member of the United Way board for two years. A salesman for Farner-Bocken Company, he is a trustee of the First United Methodist Church of Carroll. Other officers elected were Tom Rogers, vice president, and Jim Pietig, treasurer. M. J. (Mike) Arts was appointed secretary. Norgaard said plans are under way for the fourth annual United Way campaign fund drive which will be conducted this fall. Last year's campaign raised $47,645 in cash and pledges. after Rep. Morris K. Udall staged a premature victory celebration. Washington's Sen. Jackson won convincingly in New York, although he fell short of the delegate majority he had forecast. He wound up with 41 per cent of the state's 274 Democratic National Convention delegates. Udall came up a loser despite a costly, intensive Wisconsin campaign. The. defeat was magnified by his claim he had won on the basis of an early lead and victory projections by ABC and NBC. But the Arizona congressman won a big bloc of New York delegates. That showing, coupled with John Norgaard The funds are used to aid non-profit organization programs.-- - . ... Two Banks Expect New $2 Bills Soon By Jewell Tooley Carroll's two banks have applied for supplies of the $2 bill which is making a comeback on the American money scene in the bicentennial year. .By April 13, 1976, the anniversary of Thomas Jefferson's birthday, 225 million new bills will be available to banks through the Federal Reserve System. Although the new currency has not yet arrived here, the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank began shipment of the bills to Iowa banks on March 29. The U.S. Treasury Department withdrew the $2 bill from circulation 10 years ago because of lack of use; however, there are approximately $135,288,000 bills of earlier printings still in the hands of the public. During the initial production, it is estimated that 11 million of the new bills will be printed each'day. While the.$2 bill is being issued in conjunction with the bicentennial, it will continue to be issued in subsequent years. Issuance of the bill is designed to save the Federal Reserve System about $27 million and the Treasury nearly $8 million during the next five years. When the new bills are ready for circulation at the Carroll County State Bank, they will be distributed in the regular course of business, according to Joe H. 'Gronstal, president, Gronstal, former, state superintendent of banking, said, "We plan to put them in our currency drawers $2 Bills, See Page 2 Bandits Rob Guards of $851,000 in N.Y. NEW YORK (AP) - The elevator door opened and two Wells Fargo couriers, their guns drawn, wheeled a dolly' through the quiet basement corridor toward the Citibank paymaster's office. " Suddenly, three armed men wearing colorful ski masks sprang from a stairwell, disarmed the guards and ordered them up against the wall. In less than 10 well-planned minutes, the three bandits grabbed three white canvas money bags, handcuffed the guards and two other employes to a railing and calmly left the building with $851,000 in cash - one of the richest bank hauls in the city's history. The guards were jumped while making a routine payroll delivery Tuesday morning to the Citibank branch in the basement of the Daily News building in mid-Manhattan Two News employes who were .walking in the area were herded together with the guards, "Don't be afraid, lady. Nobody's going to get hurt," one of the robbers told Belts Bresson, a News employe. One of the guards, Arthur Ores, was knocked to the floor of the brightly lighted marble hallway by a bandit when he apparently didn't move fast enough. He suffered a slight head injury. Left behind were several other sacks containing only coins. The heist appeared well rehearsed, and police on the scene said they believed it was an inside job. "The robbers knew the building, the escape route they planned to use and when the delivery would be made," one detective said. Police reportedly believed the three robbers made their getaway in a car parked outside the b u i 1 d i n g . They apparently walked back down the corridor away from the bank office, through two sets of doors and up a truck ramp to thestreet. • ....... r his near miss in Wisconsin, probably will be enough to keep his campaign going. So Tuesday's two primary elections point to another threeway race in the next big Democratic test, for Pennsylvania's 178 delegates on April 27. That could work to Humphrey's advantage. The more candidates there are to divide the votes, the more likely a stalemate that would leave room for a late entry by the Minnesota senator, who is shunning the primaries but says he will reassess his potential candidacy if there is no clear leader after the final primary voting on June 8. In addition, there is both Hamilton to Be Here April 26 Carl Hamilton, author and educator, will speak here Monday, April 26, at a dinner sponsored by the Friends of the Library at 7 p.m. in the Elks' dining hall. Tickets, at $5 each, are available at the public library or can be obtained from board members of the Friends of the Library. Hamilton, vice president for information and development 'at Iowa State University, Ames, is a native of Carroll County, having grown up on a farm in the Glidden area. He is a member of the university's chief policy-making units, works with the Iowa Board of Regents and is head of development and fund-raising activities at the university. His new book, "In No Time at All," detailing experiences of his early life in Carroll County, is now in its seventh printing and is the most successful boqk ever published by the Iowa State Press at Ames, a university spokesman reported. All proceeds of the book go to the ISU Alumni Achievement fund, Hamilton said. "In No Time at AH" grew out of a series of essays he wrote for his children and grandchildren. His 89-year-old mother added details from her memories. The time described is Hamilton, See Page 2 Inside Approach energy conservation from cost standpoint —PageS.

NBC said it surveyed Wisconsin voters and found that 40 per cent of those who cast ballots for Udall said they would have gone for Humphrey had he been running Tuesday. There were signals that Humphrey would have preferred a Udall win in Wisconsin to stall Carter. The former Georgia governor suggested that Humphrey had in effect campaigned for Udall. In Milwaukee, the smiling Carter got out of bed for a belated victory statement, dis- playing a newspaper with a banner headline that said he had been upset by Udall. "We're No. l/'hesaid. ". .. I told you I would never tell a lie. I would rather win than lose." And while the net result of the Tuesday primaries did not provide him with a major boost, it left him the clear frontrunner among Democrats, with six primary victories to his credit. Jackson gained his second win in New York, in a primary that selected delegates with separate contests in each of 39 congressional districts. These were Tuesday's figures: WISCONSIN With 99 per cent of the precincts counted, among Democrats, the votes stood : Carter 269,573 or 37 per cent. Udall 262,492 or 36 per cent. Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace 92,160 or 13 per cent. Jackson 47,332 or 7 per cent. Antiabortion candidate Ellen McCormack 26,765 or 4 per cent. Four other candidates got scattered votes. Sen. Fred R. Harris of Oklahoma was one of them, with a one per cent showing that could spell the end of his campaign. He scheduled a Thursday news conference in Washington. Mao Dismisses Teng, Elevates Hua The Democrats shared Wisconsin delegates in proportion to their popular vote showings. Carter had 2G, Udall 25, Wallace 10, Jackson 6 and McCormack 1. On the Republican side, it was: Ford 324,473 or 55 per cent. Reagan 260,622 or 45 per cent. The Republican system awarded delegates on a winner take all basis in each congressional district and the statewide race, so Ford captured all 45. NEW YORK With 99 per cent of.the precincts counted, among Democrats, the votes stood: Jackson 1,336,974 or 36 per Carl Hamilton. TpKYO (AP) - China's Chairman Mao Tse-tung dismissed First Vice Premier Teng Hsiao-ping from all his party and government posts today and elevated Acting Premier Hua Kuo-feng to *** premier and party first vice . chairman — No. 2 man in the country. The action climaxed months of official campaigning against Teng and followed violent demonstrations in his favor in the heart of Peking two days ago. The promotions catapulted Begin Debate on Drug Substitution DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Senate decided Tuesday that pharmacists should be required to substitute lower-priced generic drugs on prescriptions filled by Medicaid patients. The action was taken as the Senate began debate on legislation to al low pharmacists to make the substitution routinely on prescriptions unless prohibited by the doctor. The Senate passed 29-17 and sent to' the House Tuesday a bill permitting contractors to move wide construction machinery an unlimited distance after obtaining special permits and an escort. Legislation to pump $20 million in state aid to cities and counties was approved 41-3 by the Senate Tuesday and sent to the House. The measure would divide $15 million among cities and $5 million among counties for persons living in unincorporated areas. An $800,000 appropriation was passed by the Senate Tuesday for work on the Volga Lake project in northeast Iowa. The legislature earlier appropriated more than $1 million to begin ground work on the lake, the additional $800,000 would let that work start. Motorists could use credit cards to post bond or pay fines for scheduled traffic violations under one part of a measure passed 85-0 Tuesday by the Iowa House. Rep. Richard Drake, R-Muscatine. said the bill is designed to take care of several problems in the state traffic laws. A bill that would put the state into the business of- bonding'its own employes passed the Iowa House Tuesday 64-27. Area Forecast Clearing and cooler Wednesday night, lows in upper 30s.

Teng, 72-year-old protege of the late Premier Chou En-lai and inheritor of his moderate policies, became for the second time in nearly a decade a loser to the radical wing of the Chinese Communist party.. He was ousted from his jobs as vice chairman of the party and chief of the army general staff. He retained his party membership conditional on future good behavior. The 56-year-old Hua was former minister of security and former party boss in Mao's home province. Besides the premiership, which became vacant with Chou's death from cancer on Jan. 8, Hua was given the post of first vice chairman of the party. A one-p.iragraph resolution of the Central Committee, disr tributed by Hsinhua news agency and monitored here, described the violence in Tien An Men — Gate of Heavenly Peace — Square on Monday as "counterrevolutionary incidents." It implied that Teng was behind the protest by up to 100.000 people and said that, on Mao's proposal, the party Politburo "unanimously agrees to dismiss Teng Hsiao-ping from all posts both inside and outside the party while allowing him to keep his party 'membership so as to see how he will behave in the future." The incidents in Peking's Teng Hsiao-ping main square began after tens of thousands of people massed there in tribute to Chou on Sunday, an annual festival'of the dead. They left paper flower wreaths at Martyr's Monument with the understanding they would remain until Tuesday. But by Monday morning the wreaths China, See Page 2 2 Youths Injured, 1 Seriously, as Bicycles, Tractor Collide One Carroll youth was injured seriously and another slightly when bicycles they were riding struck the front of a tractor late Tuesday afternoon.

Robert Ray said Wednesday as he threatened to call a special legislative session If lawmakers overspend and then adjourn. "If vetoes are called for, they (legislators) might have to come back and adjust," Ray said. The governor said he is especially concerned in areas such as the municipal assistance fund. He said the bill approved by the Senate and sent to the House Tuesday is an example of the type of spending measure that could be vetoed. Ray recommended $9 million in state aid for cities this year, but the Senate approved $15 million for cities and $5 million for counties. "We have a problem with the way appropriations seem to be working out," Ray said. The governor said he is now faced with a bill which would remove the payment of disability insurance from the standing unlimited fund. He said this is acceptable if the legislature gives individual departments the money to pick up that insurance. But Ray said it appears that most departments are being limited to a 2 per cent increase in their operating budgets and the money for this insurance is not being appropriated. "We're also under mandate to pay merit increases," Ray said. "That averages 3 per cent." • Ray said the departments cannot affort to pay that 3 per cent merit increase and pick up the disability insurance — totaling $700,000 statewide — on a 2 per cent budget increase. And while the legislature is cutting operating budgets to the bone, it turns around and goes wild in other areas, the governor said. "You can't nickle and dime the departments and lead the people to believe you are saving and then dump dollars in the millions." Ray said. _., _.„.....,, » u u . ,, iuuai.iiii.1 ia noieu in me omcers reported, the millions "Ravsaid Hughes Buried in Short, Secretive Rites; Few Mourners HOUSTON (AP) - Billioni a r e industrialist Howard Hughes was buried today in short, secretive graveside rites in an exclusive cemetery just west of downtown Houston. There were few mourners at the Episcopal service and there was no eulogy for the eccentric recluse who died Monday of kidney failure. Dean Robert Gibson of Christ Church Cathedral, one of Houston's oldest Episcopal churches, read the last rites from the 14th chapter'of the Book of John and added, "We bring nothing into this world and we can take nothing out. Remember thy servant Howard." Five women and 15 or 20 men gathered at Glenwood Cemetery for the three-minute service which had been'kept secret from the public. There effort to exclude reporters and photographers at the gravesite. Neither of Hughes' ex-wives attended the services. The luxuriant cemetery — burial ground for many of Houston's early civic leaders — is in a thickly wooded glen some two miles west of the downtown area. It is bounded on one side by Memorial Freeway and on the other by heavily traveled Washington Avenue. Hughes' body was quickly lowered into the grave in a 1,000-pound, silver-jacketed copper casket that will be 'covered by a matching vault, . funeral home spokesmen said. Mrs. Frederick LurnmisSr., Hughes' 85-year-old aunt, occupied a front-row seat at the services along with her son, Will Lummis. Dean Gibson read from the Bible the words of Jesus, "In My Father's house are many mansions: If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." As Hughes was being buried there remained alive the question of disposition of his vast and far-flung empire. Arelo Sederberg, a Hughes' spokesman in Los Angeles where Hughes' Summa Corp. has its headquarters, said there would be no comment on whether a will exists to detail disposal of his aerospace, hotel-casino and airline properties. There also were reports of official concern over the identification of the body despite statements by hospital officials that the body they performed a 2'/ 2 -hour autopsy on Tuesday was indeed Howard Robard Hughes, victim of "an ordinary death" from kidney failure. With or without a will, there also remained the entangled legal question over the legal home of Hughes, who spent the last two decades hiding from public view, slipping from hideaway to hideaway. This much was known today: —Hughes, a tall, romantic motion picture and aviation figure before going into hiding in the 1950s, was a scrawny 90 pounds and had apparently been bedridden sometime before he died Monday on a flight from Acapulco, Mexico, to Houston, doctors said. —His multiple financial interests estimated to be worth $2 billion apparently will continue to operate normally since his organization always ran without personal contact from Hughes while he lived. Dr. Joseph Jachimczyk. the Harris County. Tex., medical examiner who observed the autopsy which listed the cause of death as chronic kidney failure, said, "As far as I'm concerned, it's an ordinary death, it's just that it was not an ordinary person." A Treasury Department spokesman said two Internal Revenue Service agents and a Customs Service officer were dispatched to make an official identification, although Hughes' body was reported to have been accompanied by his birth certificate. In Washington, the Treasury Department said two IRS agents guarded Hughes' body. "We do not have official custody of the body but we are going to stick with it," until identity is confirmed, a Treasury spokesman said. Jachimczyk said he took fingerprints from the body and forwarded them to the FBI for positive identification. He said "there's always somebody that might say. That's not him.' We do this to answer all these questions." Meanwhile, William Gay, president of Summa Corp.. said. "It's tragic, it's tragic that Howard Hughes had to die to prove that he was alive." As for the autopsy, Jachimczyk said, "I could not tell what kind of life he had led. but he was very emaciated. The evidence is there that he had been bedridden for some time. I don't know how long."
