· Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Nb. 21, FAVITTCVILLI, ARKANSAS Senate Urged To Restore Loans Vetoed By Nixon Cranes Missing AUSTWELL, Tex. The loss ol eight (AP) whooping WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate has been urged to send another message on spending priorities to President Nixon today by restoring low-interest loans for rural electric and telephone systems which Nixon vetoed last year. The Senate Tuesday passed a $1.5-billion bill to provide services for the elderly. This was the third bill pocket-vetoed by the President last year to clear the Senate this session in a dispute over whether the Whit House or Congress sets spending priorities. Nixon refused to sign the aid- for-the-aging bill, along with others on providing aid for airports and public-works authorizations, saying Congress overspent and left him no alternative. Congress has said, however, It should decide which programs are funded and which are not, and that Nixon's actions usurped its constitutiana rights. The Rural Electrification Ad- nrnistration bill was offered bs S--. Hubert H. Humphrey, D Minn., and co-sponsored by 5 ot : 'cr senators. : "What we've got to do is sem the president a message, to quote a certain Alabama gover nor." Humphrey said Tuesday. "And the message is simple- Just abide by the law. Just do what you're required by law to do." Abolishing RSA, Humph rev said is "a refusal by tin president to carry out th law." Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton, D Mo., floor manager of the bil providing aid to the elderly pointed out that the new ver sion cuts out $500'million ovei three years to meet some of thi president's objections. · "I do not seek a confrontation With the president ...," Eagle ton said. "Nevertheless. I a|sc ielieve that we' in Congres tannot shirk our responsibility a enact programs that meet he needs of the nation's elderly itizens." The bill was passed by an 82- vote with all opposing votes ast by Republicans. It now ;oes to the House, which yet las to act on the other two Senale-passed measures. cranes from a wild flock of 59 that winters at the Arkansas National Wildlife Refuge is ' enormous magnitude," says the refuge's acting manager Lee Malett. That the graceful birds may be wintering elsewhere "is long shot and highly unlikely," he said. Wildlife agencies in Min nesota and Kansas were unable confirm reports dead Sales Practices In Insurance Business Rapped WASHINGTON (AP) -- The author of a consumers' guide lo buying insurance says "the deceptive sales practices found in the life-insurance industry con- slitutc a national scandal." Dr. Joseph M. Belth also told Senate judiciary subcommittee looking into the insur- ace field Tuesday that buyer's apathy has resulted in the industry generally training its agenls almost exclusively in selling techniques on perhaps only one or two of the available policies. Consumer advocate Ralph Nader and Belth. an Indiana University insurance professor, called for federal guidelines for life insurance, spelling out costs and benefits, similar to the truth-in-lending law. Statistician Ernest J. Moorhead urged the insurance industry to develop a plan for comparing policies of some 1,800 companies. Nader said the federal and state governments should provide "yardstick" competition by offering simple, low - cost lerm insurance, a policy that only pays a benefit upon death to widow and children. cranes found in those states, Fifty-one of the cranes have Mallett said. been at the refuge since mid- November.
