Agents Report Police Officer Fired Fatal Shot DES MOINES, Iowa (API- State agents say a bullet fired by a Winthrop police officer took the life of Donald Mayner, 19, in a confrontation early Friday on a gravel .road near Mayner's trailer home south of Winthrop. Craig Beck, director of the State Bureau of Criminal Investigation, said Tuesday the state crime lab identified Philip Adrian's .357 service revolver as the weapon that killed Mayner. The victim was the son of the Buchanan County medical examiner. The investigation into the shooting is continuing, Beek said, and the findings will be turned over to the state attorney general's office for evaluation and then to a Buchanan County grand jury. Adrian and Deputy Sheriff Dwight Guenthcr Jr. said they shot at Mayner because he sped away from them when they attempted to check his parked pickup truck. One of the officers had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit by Mayner's truck, according to Mike Rehbur, BCI assistant director. Both law officers have been routinely suspended from their duties during the investigation. ST. ANTHONY REGIONAL HOSPITAL AdmistiMM April 1*Angela M Semmens. Carroll Charles F. Garmire.

DOT Sidesteps a Showdown on Road Bias Suit AMES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) Commission has sidestepped a showdown with the federal government on a race discrimination suit by changing the route for a highway reconstruction project in Fort Madison; The commission Tuesday approved the widening of U.S. 61 instead of building the road along a new route closer to the Mississippi River. That route would have forced relocation of several hundred persons, mostly low-income families. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NCAAP) filed a discrimination charge against the old Iowa Highway Commission in 1972. DOT officials were advised by their lawyers last month that the state had a less-than- even chance of winning the suit. Medicaid Cuts in Effect July 1 DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The state will be paying a smaller share of certain medical services for Medicaid recipients under a plan approved Tuesday by the Medical Assistance Advisory Board. The cuts, which will go into effect July 1, will affect dental, optical, pharmacy, hospital, nursing home and physician services. But the Medicaid budget, estimated at $57 million, is still above the $50 million the Iowa Legislature is considering. The council was told the costcutting measures could save about $1.2 million. An additional $1.7 million in cuts was suggested by the Department of Social Services, but final action has been delayed pending further talks with the hospitals, nursing homes, physicians and hearing aid dealers involved. • Strike (Continued From Page 1) York and Goodrich meetings were in Columbus, Ohio. Besides the strike, the URW also launched a worldwide plea for a consumer boycott of Firestone products. Initial reports as picket lines went up from Massachusetts to Los Angeles indicated a "quiet, orderly strike," as an official at one of the 47 plants put it. There was a brief windowbreaking spree at Firestone's main Akron plant. TbM* rforaU. Cvnrfl. to. n Wi*mid»|, April 21, 1976 A Markets GRAIN - • ' '• •' Soybeans. No. 2 $4-44 Cora.

The utility asked the commission last month to deny a request by consumer and .environmental groups that it hold hearings on the investment. The commission denied the company's first petition on March 25, but Iowa Power asked the commission to reconsider that decision. The firm also has asked the Polk County District Court to rule on the commission's authority to conduct such rate investigations. That case is pending. • Trip (Continued From Page 1) $112,000 to be paid the Air, Force for use of its plane averages $4,307 for each of the 26 persons going on the full trip around the world. A comparable tour by commercial airline, allowing for "economy" travel, would be about $2.439 per person. The military aircraft was described by the Agriculture Department as a "VC135 with a seating configuration for 28 passengers and carrying a crew of 18, including flight personnel, stewards and security guards." . In addition to the 26 in But/.' round-the-world group, John T. Smith, co mm e r c i a 1 counselor of the Australian Embassy here, and Mrs. Smith, traveled ;as far as Australia, officials said. Asked about Mrs; Butz and eight other wives going along, the department said it "will not bill nongovernment passengers since the cost is the same whatever the passenger load." A spokesman,added that it was "not too.unusual for wives to go along on this kind of goodwill trip" and that in some countries it is considered proper for spouses to be included.

Cain, rural Carroll, lost control of the car he' was driving when he apparently lost consciousness while attempting to make a left turn from U.S. 30 into the Crouse Cartage Company yard. Police Officers Les Butler, Merlin Reinart, Norbert Kaspersen and Remain Boes reported. Cain's car went into the McCarville and Son Motor Company's parking lot, starting a chain reaction. Cain was injured and taken to St. Anthony Regional Hospital by Carroll County ambulance where he was listed in satisfactory condition Wednesday morning. Cain's infant son was only slightly injured: suffering a bump on the head. The parked vehicles damaged were: two cars owned by McCarville and Son, a pickup truck owned by Ralph Peters of 819 W. 17th Free Lunch, Pitch on Drunk Driving Bill DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — There may be no such thing as a free lunch, but you couldn't prove it by the 38 Iowa lawmakers who ate chicken and listened, to a pitch for a tough M; ti¥lr'"b'n drurik ; driving .. -Tuesday. i " "' "I'khew if I provided lunch, we'd have a better chance of getting a crowd here," said Sen. William Plymat, R-Urbandale. who wants to get the bill out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. "If the rules permitted it, and if a guy said he wouldn't attend unless I bought him a beer. I'd probably have, bought him a beer, too," said the man who works for an insurance company covering only^nondrinkers. Plymat paid $124.33 for the Jujiches. but he got a $2 bill back from State Public Safety Commissioner Charles Larson, who doesn't accept free lunches. Larson and Col. Howard Miller, former chief . of the Iowa Highway Patrol spoke for Plymat's bill. About 75 persons, including the 38 legislators, attended the lunch. Plymat's bill would establish a blood alcohol level of .1 per cent as "per se" evidence of intoxication. At present, the officials said, a judge can only tell juries that such a blood alcohol level is "presumptive" evidence of drunken driving. "This has been such a great success, I think I'll do it again, "said Plymat. • Anne (Continued Krom Page 1) She also fell from horses during competitions in 1973 and 1974. She was riding Candlewick in the Portman horse trials near Blandford when the latest mishap occurred. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said Anne and the horse fell at the second to last fence of the course and she was unconscious for only a few moments.

DOT Offers No Assurances to Employes AMES, Iowa (AP) —The Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT) Commission listened sympathetically • Tuesday when DOT employes said they would forego pay increases to prevent layoffs, but the commissioners offered no assurances. The Organization of Transportation and State Employes agreed Monday night to forego a planned cost-of-living pay increase if it would prevent the planned layoff of up to 400 DOT employes. "It is sad to see this situation develop," said Commissioner Stephen Garst of .Qoon. Rapids.

Board Unable to Help Salix on Tax Woes SALIX, Iowa (AP) — Residents of this Woodbury County community got no good news Tuesday night when the State Appeal Board held a hearing . on the city's proposed budget. • • The budget more than doubled this year because city residents are paying off a judgment on a fatal traffic accident which the city's liability insurance did not completely cover. "At this point, we can just listen," said State-Treasurer Maurice Baringer, who told the residents the appeal board could do nothing to alleviate the tax burden. Ed Lamoureux, a spokesman for the 100 residents who petitioned the state comptroller's office for the hearing, said last year he paid $239.12 in property taxes, which included a homestead exemption. But this year, said Lamoureux, he will pay $794.78 be- ~ cause of the judgment and the revised property valuations ordered last fall by the state revenue department. The average property taxpayer's bill will be more than double what it was last year, said Lamoureux. . The problem began in 1972 when a city-owned ambulance was involved in a traffic accident which killed Grant J. . Welz of Sioux City. His estate sued Salix and was awarded $188.622 in damages. But Salix carried only $100,000 in liability insurance, which meant the res{ of the judgment had to be paid by the city's 380 residents. The Iowa Legislature approved a measure to allow the debt to be paid off over a 10- i-yjeac period with interest. If 1 the city were to pay the debt immediately, it would amount to $118,000 .with interest and, fees, but over a 10-year period, that amount grows to $171,000. So in this year's budget, the council added $17,100 to pay off one-tenth of the debt. The rest of the budget amounts to $11.050. .''. . . City officials are hopeful, that a suit against its insurance company.-.Western Casualty! will.ease the burden somewhat. Salix' attorney; Bill Shuminsky of Sioux City, said a "substantial portion" of , the remainder of the judgment could be paid by the company if the suit is successful. The city is suing Western Casualty for allegedly acting in bad faith when it refused an o u t-of-court settlement of $95.000. Briefly - ——— S.S. Raise in July WASHINGTON (AP) — The government announced today that 36.3 million persons receiving Social Security or Supplemental Security Income benefits will receive a 6.4 per centcost-of-living increase beginning with their July checks. The cost-of-living increase is automatic, based on a comparison of the average monthly Consumer Price Index in the first quarter of 1975 with the first quarter The Social Security Administration said it did not know immediately how much the 6.4 per cent increase will cost. -. ..... .. The 32 million Social Security recipients will see the increase in their July 3 checks. The 4.3 million aged, blind and disabled persons receiving Supplemental Security Income will receive the increase beginning with their July 1 checks- ' - To Ask Missiles Funds WASHINGTON (AP) — President Ford is expected to ask Congress soon for $322 million to produce 60 additional long-range Minuteman missiles and speed procurement of a new and bigger nuclear warhead. The move is prompted by the continuing deadlock in U.S.-Soviet nuclear arms-limitation negotiations and the steady growth of Russian missile power, Pentagon sourcessay. Announcement of Ford's new request might come before the May 1 Texas primary, where some political analysts believe Ford may be running behind challenger Ronald Reagan. However, administration spokesmen are expected to disclaim any political intent. Big Bean Carryover WASHINGTON (AP) — Although Agriculture Department experts say soybean exports and domestic use have improved from a few months ago, the nation's reserve of the oil seeds still is expected to be of near record size by the time another hew harvest is ready in the fall. For some time the department has projected the old-crop soybean stockpile next Sept. 1, at between 230 million and 330 million bushels, up from 185 million held in reserve last fall. The record soybean "carryover" was 326.8 million bushels on Sept. 1,1969. Nothing much has changed-in the carryover picture. The latest analysis by the department's Outlook and Situation Board says the Sept. 1 stockpile is expected to be 280 million bushels, of in the middle of what USDA had projected earlier. "Heavy soybean exports, strong domestic demand for soybean oil and meal and lower prices are propelling soybean disappearance to a record high this season,'' the board said this week. Curfew in Arab Town JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli troops clamped a curfew on the Arab town of Tulkarm for the second day in a row today as another protest flared against Israel's occupation of Jordan's West Bank. , . t , J , ; ... Mayor Hilmi Hannun predicted the protests would continue as long as .Israel, keeps its troops, onjthe West Bank and builds Jewish settlements on occupied Arab land. The curfew was ordered-after Arab students scuffled with soldiers and ordered merchants'to close the iron shutters of their shops for a business strike. Most of the West Bank was quiet after a day of scattered anti-Israeli riots. "There are many soldiers but very few people in the streets," said a doctor in Nablus, a center of recent violence. "The people are afraid to go out. Racial Violence Continues BOSTON (AP) — A roving gang of about 100 black youths stoned the cars' of whites who drove through their neighborhood during a second night of racial violence in Boston, while the victim of a gang beating the night before clung to life.

Tornado Wreaks Havoc NATCHITOCHES, La.
