Urge Study of Lake Dredging WASHINGTON (AP) — Three Iowa members of Congress Tuesday urged that $5,000 be appropriated to begin a study of the possible effect of dredging Lake Manawa near Council Bluffs. Sens. Dick Clark and John Culver and Rep. Tom Harkin, all Democrats, said Lake Manawa is the most popular recreational area in southwest Iowa but is "threatened by siltation." The Senate Public Works Committee earlier approved Culver's suggestion for a study by the Army Corps of Engineers on the feasibility of dredging the lake. The money requested Tuesday from the Senate and House Appropriations Committee would permit a start on the study, which is expected to cost $60,000. • $2 Bills (Continued From Page 1) and when cashing checks if : ' would call for four $1 bills we will give the person twb$2 bills." At the Commercial Savings Bank, Executive Vice President Frank Liewer said the $2 bills will be at every teller's window. But he indicated that the only time they will be using them will be when someone asks for them. Liewer predicts that merchants are not going to look favorably upon the bills, citing equipment and drawer space as probable problems. According to a Federal Reserve publication, there will not be a "collector's" or special numismatic issue of the new note. Liewer anticipates that people might keep them "at least at the beginning." The Carroll County State Bank official said he doesn't imagine the bills will be collector's items, adding that the Treasury Department is hopeful that they will be used in the ordinary way. "The main thing we will do in pushing them is just put them in the till and use them," he said, and indicated that he thinks the public will accept them. The two-dollar demonina- tion dates back to 1776. Since 1862, it has been issued as official U.S. currency in the form of Treasury notes, silver certificates, national bank currency, U.S. notes and Federal Reserve notes with various portraits. Among them have been Alexander Hamilton, James B. McPherson, Winfield S. Hancock, William Windom and George Washington. In 1928 the 'more familiar size, with Jefferson's portrait, was introduced. The face plate of the new $2 bill re-introduces a portrait of Jefferson painted in the early 1800s by Gilbert Stuart. Jefferson is universally recognized as the author of the Declaration of Independence. The reverse plate design is new. It is a vignette based upon John Trumbull's painting, "The Signing of the D e c 1 a r a t i on o f Independence," Trumbull's work was done during the. post-Revolutionary War period and later he.was commissioned to reproduce the painting in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. The original now hangs in the Trumbull Gallery at Yale University.

Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) — Prices were mixed within a very nar- low range on the Chicago Board of Trade today. Wheat opened shaky. Sources said a denial Tuesday by the Agriculture Department of a new grain deal with Russia was a negative factor. The expectation of rain in Kansas also hurt prices and wheat was as much as a cent a bushel lower. Soybeans were also hurt by the rain threat and were down as much as 2Vz cents. Daily Grain .

The Dow-Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was off 2.36 at 999.29 at noon. Declines outnumbered advances by about a 3-2 margin among New York Stock Exchange-listed issues. • Primaries (Continued From Page 1) system offered no clear measure of statewide support. Furthermore, some nominally uncommitted delegates chose sides, six saying they were for Jackson, at least 16 declaring support for Humphrey. In the Republican primary in New York, 114 uncommitted candidates won convention seats, most of them unopposed. Only a dozen Reagan supporters were entered, and three of them won; Thirty-seven uncommitted Republicans were selected earlier. That adds up to , 154 GOP delegates, virtually all of them officially uncommitted but likely to end up in the Ford column — unless his contest with Reagan should open the race to other potential candidates. In that case, the New York votes could be a base for Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller. In Buffalo, a Humphrey ally claimed the Minnesota senator got a boost from the New York outcome. "There was no one winner, therefore the winner was Sen. Humphrey," said Joseph F. Crangle, the Democratic chairman of Erie County. "At least 90 per cent of the uncommitted delegates elected are for Sen. Humphrey." Daily Record COURTHOUSE New Vehicles Registered— Frank or Martha D. Koepke, Carroll, Dodee; LeoH.

Child, Pulled From Pool Dies in Hospital IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Deanna Gravert, 5, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Gravert of Tipton, died at University of Iowa Hospitals here Tuesday after being pulled from the Tipton municipal swimming pool. She and three young friends apparently got into the pool area through a narrow hole in the fence, and Deanna fell into about five feet of water, authorities said. She was pulled from the pool by her companions' parents, who administered mouth-to- mouth rescusitation. Approve Plans for Marina at Gull Point Park DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Conservation Commission has approved controversial plans to build a $126.000 marina at Gull Point State Park on West Okoboji Lake. But the commission abandoned plans Tuesday to put the 40-boat marina in a canal area on the west side of the park and decided instead to build it on a point near the park's beach area. The commission's fisheries staff and some Okoboji area residents had complained that building the marina in the inland canals would destroy valuable fish habitat. Roy Downing, commission waters superintendent, said he favored the beach site because it would be cheaper to build and maintain, and because the commission would not have to contend with the 1.200-foot canal necessary for the inland site. But Joe Brill, the commission park chief, said the beach site would destroy a marsh arid would contentrate too many people near the park's crowded beach area. The commission voted unanimously to build the marina and 4-2 for building it at the.beach site. In other action, the commission received preliminary plans 'for construction of the Brushy Creek lake and recreation area near Fort Dodge. The 4.125-acre park and 980- acre lake have been in the works for more than 14 years'. Sheffler & Associates of Mason City, planners of the park, offered five alternatives for development. No construction date has been set. 3rd Woman Charged in lowan's Death ST. JOSEPH. Mo.

Credit Card Fine Payment Bill Approved DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Motorists would be allowed to use credit cards to post bond or pay fines for scheduled traffic violations, under a bill passed 85-0 by the Iowa House Tuesday. Rep. Richard Drake, R-Muscatine, said the bill is designed to take care of .several problems in the state traffic laws. A person picked up for a scheduled violation .could use his credit card either to post bond, or to pay the scheduled fine and court costs for the offense. Another provision of the bill would allow contractors to move construction equipment not more than 14 feet wide for unlimited distances on the highways, under escort. Drake said this would tend to reduce road contractors' costs and ultimately might be reflected in lower bids for highway construction. The bill also would allow movement of oversize loads on Sundays and on Thansgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. . The measure would add several truck violations to the list of scheduled traffic- offenses. These are offenses for which a . fine is set by law which a motorist can pay if he doesn't want to appear in court to contest it. The scheduled offenses and fines set by the bill would include: No evidence or improper evidence of intrastate trucking authority, $50; no evidence or improper evidence of interstate trucking authority, $100. Also, failure to haye, or having improper, carrier identification markings, $15; operation of a vehicle by an unqualified driver, $25; operating a vehicle more than the maximum allowable hours of service or failure to keep a proper hours of service log, $25. The bill now goes to the Senate. / FULKATJAYCEES Kenneth Fulk, Republican candidate for the U.S. Fifth Congressional District, will be. the main speaker at the Carroll Jaycees meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Derby', Fulk is currently oh leave froin his post as secretary of the Iowa State Fair Board.

It is a way of living that has passed and has some of the language that belonged in that world — words like Central. All 'board, quarantine, Chautauqua. Hamilton's book records the way Carroll County life was lived, daily events, work so hard that the author describes his life since as "all down hill." The humor and laughter are also set down for this and future generations. Descriptions are so vivid that the reader can- see Grandpa backing the Model T up the steep hill to keep from stalling: a teen-age boy plowing crooked because he's waving to a giant locomotive passing by, and the engineer in red neckerchief is waving back; mother throwing cobs in the cook stove, and dafl going through all sorts of contortions trying to teach a calf to drink out of a bucket. Hamilton graduated from Iowa State in 1936 in agricultural journalism. Nearly 30 years later he returned to the University as head of the department of technicaLjournalism. : " For 14 years he was editor of the Hardin County Times and Iowa Falls Citizen. His honors in journalism include the "Bent Cane Award" of the Des Moines Press and Radio.Club .in 1955 and the Iowa Press Association's Master Editor-Publisher Award in 1961. ' ; (-Briefly Aid Bill Faces Veto WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford told congressional leaders today there is "a very strong probability" he would veto a $5.6-billion foreign aid bill' if it includes an extra $550 million for Israel, according to House Republican Leader John Rhodes. Speaking with reporters after the White House meeting, Rhodes said Ford told leaders of both parties he would "have no alternative" if the proposed additional funds for Israel are included in the foreign aid package. Rhodes, R-Ariz., said Ford indicated no compromise was possible on the issue. House Majority Leader Carl Albert, asked if Ford appeared firm in his resolve to veto the bill if the extra money for Israel remained intact, said- "No, I don't think the President has reached that point but he has set down certain-conditions under which he would , veto." Venezuela Taking Over Firm CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — The Venezuelan government says it is taking over a U.S. glass company's Venezuelan holdings because it gave in to the demand of leftist kidnapers of its local manager and published the kidnapers' manifesto abroad. A government communique said Owens-Illinois of Toledo, Ohio, violated the law by paying for publication of the kidnapers' statement Tuesday in The New York Times, The Times of London and Le Monde, in Paris. The government said it would pay the American company "fair" indemnities for its properties. Unofficial sources said Owens-Illinois holds a majority interest in four Venezuelan companies with a total capital of about $20 million. The sources said the companies control 58 per cent of the Venezuelan glass container arid plate glass market. Hijackers Threaten Jet MANILA, The Philippines (AP) — Officials indicated they were preparing to meet the demands of three armed hijackers who threatened today to blow up a Philippine jetliner with 73 persons aboard unless President Ferdinand E. Marcos lets them leave the country with former publisher Eugenio Lopez Jr. and five other prisoners.

'Borders on the Illegal 9 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The practice of some barbers and beauticians in marketing vitamins and giving nutritional advice borders on the illegal practice of medicine, an Iowa Attorney General's opinion said Wednesday. Health Commissioner Norman Pawlewski requested the opinion noting that a laboratory has developed products for sale by barbers and beauticians and set a program to assist persons with their diets and nutrition. Under the program, beauticians give customers a so- called nutritional diet analysis. Customers list foods consumed in a three day-period, a laboratory checks the list and sends the customers a list of vitamins and minerals consumed and the percentage of recommended vitamins taken. The analysis also recommends that customers obtain more information on protein and nutrition from the beautician. Close Child Care Fight ' WASHINGTON (AP) - A close fight is expected as Congress prepares to try to override President Ford's veto of a bill that would provide $125 million to help the states meet new federal standards in establishing day carecenters. . Ford vetoed the bill on Tuesday, saying it "would perpetuate rigid federal child day-care standards for all the states and localities in the nation, with the cost to be paid by the federal taxpayer." He urged Congress to enact his own program, under which states Would establish and enforce their own day care standards and set up the social service programs they want. Would Sue if N.Y. Defaulted WASHINGTON (AP) - The Ford administration says it probably would take New York City to court if the city fails to repay emergency federal loans. Although the federal government technically would have first claim on city money if there was such a default, Deputy Assistant Treasury Secretary Robert Gerard said Tuesday'he doubts a court would rule in Washington's favor. Gerard made the statement at hearings by House and Senate appropriations panels on the Treasury Department's request for $1.25 million to administer the federal loans during the next fiscal year.
