LOUIS (AP) —The office of the Eastern Missouri Diocese of the Episcopal Church has announced the names of five candidates for election as bishop, to succeed Rt. Rev. George L. Cadigan who retires in April. The nominees are the Rt. Rev. Scott F. Bailey, assistant bishop of the Diocese of Texas; the Rev. William A. Jones, rector of St. John's Episcopal Church in Johnson City, Tenn.; the very Rev. Joseph A. Pelham, dean of students at Colgate Rochester Divinity School; the Rev. Gordon S. Price, rector of Christ Church at Dayton, Ohio, and the Rev. G. Richard Wheatcroft, rector of St. Francis Episcopal Church in Houston, Tex. Polls indicate Middle South Utilities ROBBIE Robertson, son of Mr. and Mrs. James L. Robertson of Route 2, Hope, and a senior at Hope High School, is to be featured in the eighth annual edition of Who's Who Among American High School students. He is active in the Beta Club, in various church activities, and was a member of the Spanish Club for two years. He has been named to the National Honor Society. He is employed parttime at Kroger's, and with his own money is sponsoring a foster child through the Christian Children's Fund. Robbie plans to attend Hendrix College as a pre-med student. Kissinger (Continued from Front Page) his visit, which is aimed at mending relations between the United States and India. But later they both agreed that those relations are "on the way up." Kissinger's comments on nuclear proliferation were designed, according to U.S. officials, as the secretary's major public address during his three- day reconciliation visit to India. Kissinger was reported to have carried a similar message to Mrs. Gandhi during his talks with her and Foreign Minister Y. B. Chavan earlier today. Kissinger and Mrs. Gandhi expressed confidence as they entered the talks that Indo-American relations were improving. Before Kissinger arrived at her office, Mrs. Gandhi told newsmen that "with any two countries, any two individuals, things go up and down." But, she said, relations with the United States are "on the way up." They "are good, and we want to make them better." "I agree with that completely," Kissinger said. "Relations are on the way up." In an interview published a few hours before Kissinger's arrival from Moscow Sunday, Mrs. Gandhi said the Indian government had "always tried for good relations with the Americans" but unfortunately they have regarded India as marginal to their global strategy .-" India has particularly been irked by the U.S. "tilt" toward Pakistan in the 1971 war that gave birth to Bangladesh. Kissinger is also trying to coax India away from the Soviet Union, which has shipped India an estimated $1.75 billion worth of arms. Chavan at a banquet in honor of Kissinger Sunday night noted that relations between the two countries "have improved in the last year or two. "Although it would be idle to pretend that there are no differences between us, we both recognize the need for building up a mature and constructive relationship on the basis of equality, mutual respect and mutual benefit." Kissinger's visit is virtually certain to produce more U. S. shipments of the food India needs so desperately. During his flight from Moscow to New Delhi, Kissinger told newsmen there is a reasonable chance that the Soviet and American goverments will be ready to sign a new 10-year treaty next year broadening limitations on offensive nuclear weapons. A senior American official said the two governments will issue new instructions to their arms negotiators in Geneva within a month of the meeting. Demo landslide will move to N. Orleans By The Associated Press Separate Gallup Polls point to a Democratic landslide in next week's congressional elections and fading support for the nomination of Nelson A. Rockefeller as vice president. "The latest findings indicate a landslide in the making, with Democratic seat gains likely to be considerably in excess of the normal off-year gains for the party out of power," said Gallup. In the Sept. 27-Oct. 14 congressional survey of 3,113 adults in 350 locations, 55 per cent of those polled said they would rather see their congressional district won by Democrats. Thirty-five per cent said they would rather be represented by Republicans, 2 per cent said they prefrred other party candidates and 8 per cent were undecided. The percentages were nearly identical to those Gallup reported three weeks earlier. Rockefeller's confirmation as vice president was favored by only 44 per cent of Americans, a Gallup Poll taken for News- Week magazine said. Newsweek said the poll was consistent with two Harris Polls last week that showed dwindling support for Rockefellerm Newsweek said Sunday that of 553 persons queried by tele- pHbne last week, 38 per cent opposed confirmation of the former New York Republican governor with the rest of the respondents undecided. The first Harris sampling showed Rockefeller's support at 55 to 31 per cent, but backing for the confirmation slipped to a 47-40 per cent tally in the second survey, with the balance undecided. Asked whether they would like to see Rockefeller become president some day, 25 per cent said they would and 60 per cent said they wouldn't. Three women again defy church leaders NEW YORK (AP) - Three women who were ordained as Episcopal priests have again defied their church leaders by celebrating Holy Communion at the nondenominational Riverside Church. As the women reached a candle-decorated table Sunday at the spot where an altar would have been in an Episcopal church, about 2,000 persons attending the ceremony burst into applause. Hanging over the chancel rail was a brightly colored sign with the legend: "In Christ there is neither male nor female, bond nor free, Jew nor Gentile, we are one." The women priests then consecrated the elements of communion, an act historically performed only by male priests. They also gave communion to women and men who did not kneel, another departure from tradition. The three celebrants said they held the eucharistic service "according to the official authorized services of the Episcopal Church, despite a declaration by the House of Bishops that we are not priests." The women, the Revs. Alison Cheek of the diocese of Virginia, Carter Heyward of New York and Jeanette Piccard of Minnesota, were ordained in Philadelphia July 29 by four bishops after their diocesan superiors had refused the apostolic laying on of hands. On Aug. 15 the House of Bishops, one of the governing chambers of the Protestant Episcopal Church, expressed the opinion that the ordinations were invalid. However, the body affirmed its approval in principle of women's ordination. $ 8 million i bills seized at L.A. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Secret Service agents have confiscated more than $8 million worth of bogus but realistic $100 bills in what they called the largest seizure of counterfeit money in U.S. history. Four men were arrested Sunday and booked for investigation of manufacturing and possession of counterfeit money, said Robert E. Powis, special agent in charge of the Los Angeles office of the Secret Service. Powis described the bills as being "definitely passable. It looks like the intent was for a rather wide-scale distribution." He said the largest counterfeit seizure prior to this was a $6.1 million haul in Chattanooga, Tenn., in 1973. He said agents acting on a tip stopped a van in suburban Lakewood and found $7.5 million worth of counterfeit bills inside. The driver of the van, Leonard O. Salmon, 39, of Lakewood, was arrested at the scene, Powis said. A second man, Kenneth Clar- ence Wall, 48, of Buena Park, was arrested a short time later. Powis identified him as the owner of Gus Printing Co., of Hawaiian Gardens. Powis identified the two others in custody as Robert James Spratte, 33, of Whittier and Sam Jackson Anders, 35, of Compton. Agents obtained two search warrants after the arrests and searched the offices of Gus Printing and a private residence in Cerritos, Powis said. An additional $750,000 in false $100s and a number of printing plates were found at Gus Printing, he added. Powis said an offset press and charred remnants of counterfeit $5, $10 and $20 bills were found at the Cerritos residence. "We are fairly confident that none of the bills got out into circulation," Powis said. The arrests capped a three- week investigation, Powis said. He said the men will be arraigned Tuesday morning before the U.S. magistrate. Oil equalization program will be announced Tuesday HARTFORD, Conn.! (AP) A program to equalize oil prices throughout the country will be announced by the Ford administration on Tuesday, according to Rep. Robert H. Steele. The Connecticut Republican said that Treasury Secretary William E. Simon told him that the new program will go into effect Dec. 1. Steele said utility customers in states that are dependent on high-priced foreign oil have higher bills because of that dependence. Under the new system, he said oil importers can purchase tickets to buy price-controlled domestic oil at $5.25 per barrel. The tickets can be sold to domestic oil refiners who are now dependent on either high-priced domestic or foreign oil, he said. The system would enable refiners to buy some oil at between $2 and $3 less per barrel than the current price, he said. Steele, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, made his comments during a Connecticut Public Television 'interview show Sunday on which his Democratic opponent, Rep. Ella T. Grasso, D-Conn., also appeared. There were some 45,917,801 immigrants admitted to the United States between 1820-1972, The World Almanac says. A record 8,795,386 immigrants were admitted into the United States during the decade, 1901-1910. Between 1851-1930, some 35.3 million immigrants entered the country. In 1972, 384,685 immigrants were admitted while in 1820, only 8,385 were admitted. NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) Middle South Utilities officials announced today that they will move their corporate headquarters from New York City to New Orleans by the first of the year. The corporation provides electric jervice to 1.3 million customers In a S2",COO^square mile area which includes Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Southeast Missouri. Utility President Floyd W. Lewis said revised tax laws made the change possible. "The Louisiana Legislature, in its 1973 session, acted to eliminate duplicate corporate franchsie taxes on the same dollars of capital in a public utility holding company and its Louisiana subsidiaries, and this year the new Louisiana Constitution removed a second exposure by including stocks among the specific exemptions from ad valore taxes," said Lewis "These changes made Loui- Dale Bumpers listed among front-runners WASHINGTON (AP). — Sen. Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., said Sunday that Gov. Dale Bumpers is among the current front runners for the 1976 Democratic presidential nomination. Mansfield, the Senate majority leader, was interviewed on CBS' "Face the Nation." He listed six persons, including Bumpers, as being among the current front runners. Others were Florida Gov. Reubin Askew, Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington, Rep. Morris K. Udall of Arizona, Sen. Walter F. Mondale of Minnesota and Sen. Lloyd M. Bentsen of Texasm Bumpers was unavailable for comment.

The operating companies of the Middle South Utilities System are Arkansas Power & Light Co., Arkansas-Missouri Power Co., Louisiana Power & Ught Co., Mississippi Power & Light Co., and New Orleans Public Service Inc. Lewis said Middle South has invested $3.3 billion in its plant and facilities, and is carrying out a $600 million annual construction program through 1978 to serve its customers. "We feel that having the cof- porate offices of Middle South Utilities located in and identified with onr service area will accrue benefits to the Middle South Utilities System companies, the customers served by the system operating companies, and the stockholders who reside in the area," Lewis added.
