The Senate Thursday rejected a recommendation to close the Mitchellville school and transfer its inmates to the Toledo Juvenile Home. But it left open the option to convert the school to a prison. "We're going to provide the best possible solution with the finances available," said Sen. William Palmer, D-Des Moines, chairman of the Appropriations Committee.,, "Mitchellville may be the best." Palmer said he and others are re-reading various studies and proposals to alleviate the over-crowded conditions. '"MdSrairof those indicate It wouldn't be feasible to build new facilities," Palmer said. "But conditions contradict this. The prisons are getting more and more crowded." The Senate Wednesday rejected converting the Mount Pleasant Mental Health Institute into a prison and also turned down giving the Department of Social Services $3.5 million and telling it to purchase or convert existing facilities into a prison. The Social Services Department has recommended constructing a new prison at Newton.

NEW YORK (AP) -The stock market was mixed today against a background of conflicting interest rate developments. The noon DowJones average of 30 industrials was down 2.84 to 999.29 after being ahead more than a point in the opening hour. Gainers topped losers by a narrow margin among New York Stock Exchange-listed issues. Displaying the same indecisiveness that has marked each trading session this week. Wall Street seemed torn by the favorable news that Citibank lowered its prime rate a quarter point to 6M> per cent, effective Monday, and by the bad news that Treasury bill rates rose today on the money markets. With the nation's money supply rising rapidly for the past four weeks, the market has been sensitive to interest rate developments recently. General Motors, the Big Board volume leader, added '/4 to 71%, including 100,000-share block at 71'/2. • Hughes (Continued From Page 1) ing the crudely written instructions was given to Clark County Clerk Loretta Bowman earlier Thursday by •• Wilford W.-Kirton Jr., legal counsel for the Church of ••Jesus Christ-of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). Kirtonsaid it had been found Tuesday at the church's headquarters in Salt Lake City. He said a handwriting expert consulted by Mormon officials said the document seemed authentic. However, officials at Summa Corp., parent company for Hughes' vast holdings, said they doubted the will had been drawn by Hughes and a court fight over its authenticity seemed probable. The judge here who will decide whether the document is the last will of the eccentric billionaire said Dietrich would have to prove its validity. "Since Dietrich has been named executor, it would be up to him to submit proof that this will was'indeed the last will and testament of Howard Hughes, that it was properly signed by Howard Hughes and that Howard Hughes was mentally capable of executing a will at the time it was signed," said Chief Judge Keith Hayes of the 8th Judicial District Court. Hayes declined to say specifically what he would accept as proof of the will's validity but commented, "Someone would have to prove that this will was written by Howard Hughes j'and that it is legally binding. I would say that someone would have to have been familiar with Mr. Hughes or (be) some kind of an expert, such as a handwriting analyst." -If-declared validr the .'will. ' would leave one four'trf'tff"" Hughes' fortune, estimated at up to $2.5 billion, to the Hughes Medical Institute in Miami. Several of Hughes associates have said they - expected him to leave much of his money to medical research and charity because such a bequest normally is exempt from federal estate taxes. The holographic will — so called because it purports to be written in one's own hand — contains no signatures of witnesses. A federal judge in Clark County said a holographic will does not require witnesses, merely verification from handwriting experts. CORRECTION Stephen M.

Perkins said he proposed the amendment that adds the word "and," allowing official "and" directional signs to be in the public's view on Iowa's highways. He has been working with State Department of Transportation (DOT) trying to "work out a satisfactory long-term solution for signs," the representative said. The bill now has to go back to the state senate for approval. "The DOT approves of the amendment and I predict the senate will accept it," Perkins commented. The bill will allow the DOT to draft departmental rules to create a new category of signs . which they will call temporary signs, he added. Other signs allowed under this new category will be contest signs such as the Farm Achievement Show and directions to state plowing matches, Perkins explained. The representative also mentioned that a bill giving Iowa State University at Ames $100,000 for psuedo rabies research has passed the house. Psuedo rabies is a disease which causes many livestock deaths every year, particularly in swine.

Briefly Terms reports. Anderson created a sensation by publishing the grand jury transcripts which gave the first solid testimony of the Watergate crimes. He was the first to report that President Nixon had no advance knowledge of the Watergate break-in, but had participated in the Watergate cover-up. : -.01 Long before the* Watergate scandal broke, Anderson dug out the story about Howard Hughes' $100,000 cash payoff which was delivered by a Hughes emissary to Bebe Rebozo at Key Biscayne and San Clemente. It was also Anderson's stories that led to the celebrated Senate hearings on the International Telephone and Telegraph Company. He published the famous Dit'a Beard memo telling of a $400,000 ITT offer to help stage the Republican convention in San Diego. In 1972 Anderson received the Pulitzer prize for proving that President Nixon and Henry Kissinger had lied to the Congress and the public about the U.S. tilt toward Pakistan in the India-Pakistan conflict. Anderson has been credited with driving a number of miscreants out of public office, including former Senators Tom Dodd, D-Conn., George Murphy, R-Calif., and Marlow Cook, R-Ky. The latest was a series of columns which led to the resignation of postmaster Ted Klassen in the middle of his term. When Drew Pearson died in 1969, Jack Anderson took over the Washin g t o n Merry-Go-Round column which appears daily in more than 970 newspapers. Anderson frankly describes himself as a muckraker, but he insists his object is not sensationalism but reform. Indeed, be.professes to be • Columns (Continued From Page 1) accepted a call from his church to serve two years, 1942-43. as a full-time missionary in the Southern states.

Kilpatrick, the outspoken, articulate former editor of the Richmond ( V a . ) News-Leader, has written more than 300.000 words a year for many years. His column will appear three times a week in the Times Herald starting Monday. Kilpat'rick's conservative opinions get readership and attention from militant liberals, die-hard conservatives and professed moderates. They all enjoy the exercise, sensing that he is not really predictable on any issue. James Kilpatrick was born in Oklahoma City in 1920. He was graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Journalism degree in 1941. He joined the Richmond News-Leader as a general reporter right after graduation. Following several years covering state and federal courts and offices, he was assigned to the News-Leader's capitol staff where he covered the Virginia General Assembly, the Governor's office, and state political news. Kilpatrick became associate editor of the News-Leader in 1949, and editor in 1950. He moved to Washington in 1966 where he has work space in the newsroom of the Washington Star-News. ... .A.doze/i major citations awarded to Kilpatrick include the University of Missouri's Distinguished Service Award .in 1954, the Sigma Delta Chi Award in 1955; the Afro-American Award for "Superior Public Service Without Thought of Gain" arid the Award of Merit. Daughters of the American Revolution; in 1957. James Kilpatrick is the author of "The Sovereign States"; co-editor of "The Lasting South" and editor of "We the States," the author of "The Smut Peddlers" and "The Southern Case for School Segregation.'.' He is, vice chairman of Virginia's Commission on Constitutional Government and chairman of the state's 1965 Magna Carta Commission. Kilpatrick, called the "best reporter I ever had" by the managing editor who first hired him, attempts to give his readers something more than they get from the news. He's been doing just that for more than 350 newspapers including every major city in the nation. As he grows older Kilpatrick feels he is becoming more and more temperate... finds that issues have a tendency to shade to complex grays instead of crisp black and white. It takes more time, he says, to take a stand. But he asks. "How can we not take a .^stahd when we upbraid our state legislators, the Congress and the President when they fail to say clearly; Yes or No?" Agree with him or not — you read him. officials who feel the prick of his pen. He considers it the special calling of the press, however, to expose corruption and crusade for reforms. The fact that he would rather write only nice things about everybody doesn't deter him from doing his duty as he sees it. Jack Northman Anderson, 52. was born in Long Beach, Calif., and reared in Salt Lake City, Utah. His father was a postal clerk, his mother a taxi driver. When he was 12 he got his first newspaper job as a $7-a-week reporter for the weekly Murray Eagle in Salt Lake City suburbs. By the time he was 18, he was working on the city desk at the, Salt Lake Tribune.

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) - The United States is prepared to recognize the Marxist government of Angola provided it expels the 15,000 Cuban troops now on its soil, Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said today. Kissinger, who flew to Liberia from Zaire, also dismissed as "totally irresponsible" any suggestion that his pledge to promote black rule in Rhodesia could serve to encourage violence in that country. Regarding Angola, preliminary discussions about possible diplomatic relations were begun six weeks ago with Angolan representatives at the United Nations, U.S. officials said privately. Kissinger offered the olive branch in a speech prepared for a dinner given by Liberian President William R. Tolbert Jr. He said the United States would also be willing to provide economic aid. Prime Rate Cut NEW YORK (AP) — Citibank, the nation's second largest commercial bank, cut its prime lending rate from 6% per cent to 6M> per cent today. Citibank has often led the way for prime rate changes by other banks. The new rate, effective Monday, is what the bank charges for loans to its most creditworthy corporate customers. The prime rate is not directly related to consumer or mortgage lending rates, although it is one indication of the trend of interest rates in general. Ford Test Saturday By The Associated Press President Ford, embroiled in a key Texas primary race against Ronald Reagan, fe already looking toward November, telling audiences in the Lone Star state, "We don't really know what Jimmy Carter stands for." After Carter's easy Pennsylvania primary victory and Thursday's decision by Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey to stay out of the primary battles, Ford said he believes Carter will be the Democratic nominee. Ford — whose campaign swing through Texas continued today — is now suggesting he will surprise people in the Texas Republican primary Saturday in which he has rated himself an underdog. After several days of poking at Reagan, he abruptly shifted gears on Thursday and began talking about the Democrats. New Soviet Chief MOSCOW (AP) — Western specialists say the Soviet Union's new defense minister, Dmitri F. Ustinov, ' favors heavy military spending and accelerated technological development. "A bright, tough guy," said one Western military attache of the first civilian to head the Soviet military machine since Stalin fired Leon Trotsky in 1925. The appointment of the 67year-old armaments expert was announced Thursday night, a few hours after his predecessor, Marshal Andrej Grechko, was buried in the Kremlin wall. Grechko, 72, died Monday of a heart attack. He had been defense minister since 1967. Tax Burden' NEW YORK (AP) — Taxpayers in 20 states paid more than $1 in taxes to the federal government for every dollar their states received in federal grants in '^ aid, the Tax Foundation says. v < ? Florida taxpayers got the worst return for their federal tax dollar, the foundation said Thursday, paying $1.46 for each $1 that came back from the government. District of Columbia's taxpayers got the best deal, the foundation said. They paid only 28 cents for every dollar returned in federal grants, The figures were calculated under a formula developed by the foundation in cooperation with other organizations more than 10 years ago. The costs of administering federal grants and the amounts of matching funds required from the states are not taken into consideration. The foundation said federal grants for fiscal 1975 totalled $48.2 billion, including $6.1 billion in revenue-sharing funds. The biggest share of the grant total, $5.7 billion, went to New York, whose taxpayers sent 83 cents to Washington for every dollar received, the foundation said. Two states, Arizona and Pennsylvania, came out even, dollar for dollar, the report said. No Profit for Amtrak WASHINGTON (AP) - Amtrak, the government's grand plan for continuing rail passenger service across the nation, will end its first five years of operation tonight without a single route showing a profit and with its need for government subsidy growing. However, the corporation has accomplished one of the goals set by Congress, reversing 25 years of declining rail passenger service. Amtrak's ridership has increased by about 9 per cent per year since it took over most rail passenger service at 12:01 a.m. on May 1,1971. ' : Yet its costs have risen faster than revenues and its need for federal subsidy has increased from the $40 million it received from the government in 1971 to $360 million in 1976. The corporation will probably need far greater subsidy in the next five years, a General Accounting Office report shows. The study estimates Amtrak will require at least $6.2 billion in federal help from 1976 to 1980. t Soviet Radiation WASHINGTON (AP) — Two former Secret Service agents say intense levels of radiation at the U.S. ambassador's mansion in Moscow were discovered in 1959, during then-Vice President Richard M. Nixon's trip to the Soviet Union, and that Nixon may have been exposed to the radiation. The radiation disappeared after the agents, who had assumed the Soviets were beaming the rays, said they used a ploy designed to persuade the Russians to stop the radiation. . • The former Secret Service agents said they detected "'the' radiation in the quarters of t h e n-U . S . Ambassador Llewellyn E. Thompson, who resided at the Spasso House mansion. During his four-day stay in Moscow. Nixon slept there and the agents say he may have been exposed to the rays for one night until the ' radiation was stopped. It was during this visit that Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev engaged in their famous "kitchen debate" about the merits of capitalism versus communism.
