The suspect, Thomas R. Williamson, 36. was arrested at his mother's home here, according to a spokesman for the ATF office in Omaha. The spokesman said Williamson is on ATF's "significant criminal" list, adding that the list is similar to the the FBI's "10 most wanted list," but with more names. According to ATF officials, agents working undercover purchased 350 pounds of dynamite and 75 blasting caps from Williamson. The dynamite was stolen from the Scherrimer Limestone Quarry near Logan, Iowa, in late March. In all, 400 pounds of dynamite was stolen from the quarry, but 50 pounds have not been recovered, officials said. Last Tuesday, a federal grand jury in Des Moines indicted Williamson on charges of possession of stolen exposives and for being a felon in possession of stolen explosives. ATF officials said the 350- pound buy was the largest in the area since the implementation of the federal Anti-Crime Act of 1970. According to FBI reports, Williamson has a prior felony conviction record on charges of breaking and entering, carrying a concealed weapon and receipt of stolen property. Williamson was being held in jail here in lieu of bond, which was set at $15,000, and was slated to be taken to Des Moines Wednesday for an appearance in federal court. grandchildren, and five sisters and brothers including John Pottebaum of Carroll and William Pottebaum of Halbur.

"We are making no limit on the first two," Rabedeaux said. "We're only placing a $200,000 limit on one of three categories." The bill, which goes to the House, is designed to hold down the cost of malpractice insurance in three ways.

"One of the problems with malpractice insurance is the amount of malpractice that does exist," Junkins said, contending the best way to hold down malpractice insurance rates is to cut down on the amount of malpractice. The Senate voted 27-20 Monday to keep a section in the bill that requires doctors to report other doctors when they observe "grossly negligent, careless or reckless behavior." That vote was reaffirmed 25-22 Tuesday after Sen. Irvin Bergman, R-Harris, asked that the Monday vote be reconsidered. Sen. Charles Miller, D-Burlington, a chiropractor, said it is unprofessional to require medical personnel to report each other to a licensing board which could then revoke or suspend licenses. "I think this (reporting) ought to be by conscience," Sen. Clifton Lamborn, R-Maquoketa, agreed. But Sen. Warren Curtis, R- Cherokee, said the professional medical personnel are the ones who know when malpractice has occurred. He said they should be required to report when unethical practice have occurred. COURT HOUSE New Vehicles Registered- Kenneth W. Onken or Gene E.

Former Chief to Be Sentenced MAQUOKETA, Iowa (AP) — A Jackson County District Court jury has decided that former Muscatine police chief Wayne McDaniel delivered marijuana and drugs to a Muscatine woman for profit. The jury was charged with determining whether McDaniel, 55. had given the drugs to Mrs. Barbara Edington. 39. as a favor or for profit.

Jury Chosen for Trial of Thomas Seehan NEVADA, Iowa (AP) — A jury of eight women, four men and two women alternates was chosen Tuesday in the first day of the trial of Thomas Earl Seehan, Ames, accused of smothering his son to death. Seehan is charged on an open count of murder for the Nov. 13, 1975, death of his son, Thomas Jr., 2. It was evident in the defense questioning of 41 prospective jurors that the lawyers intended to bring up the question of insanity and diminished re- sponsiblity for Seehan. Defense attorney James Brewer, Ames, told the prospects that, "there are facts that are going to bear on the responsiblity of Tom Seehan," adding that "a man is guilty of a crime because of what he intends...." Brewer also closely questioned each prospective juror about whether they would consider any evidence concerning the mental condition of the defendant if such evidence were introduced. Asst. Story County Atty. Richard Parker represented the state With Story County Atty. Ruth Harkin. They also dwelled on the sanity point, asking the prospective jurors whether they would give more weight to testimony from "expert witness" than to other witnesses. With the case involving the death of a small child, most jurors were also questioned about whether they had children or grandchildren, and were asked the ages of the children. On Nov. 14 of last year, See- han held his wife hostage in an Ames insurance office for more than six hours before law enforcement authorities talked him into surrendering. During the time Mrs. Seehan was held hostage, authorities found his son smothered to death in the Seehan trailer at a mobile home court north of Ames. While Seehan held hjs wife hostage, he admitted killing his son in at least two radio interviews, expressing fear that a pending divorce action would result in his wife gaining custody of the youngster. r Briefly • Audit (Continued Fronii Page 1);, according to the 1973 assessments was as follows for the 12-month period: Total real and personal property — $75,229,461.00.
