December 16, 1976 HAYS DAILY NEWS School Officials Have Hope For Vo-Tech School By J. MARTIN DOLAN Of The News Staff Officials of USD 489 remain confident of the eventual establishment of a Hays vo- tech school after meeting Wednesday with Gov. Robert F. Bennett. Bennett, in Hays during his tour of western Kansas, urged the school district to pursue all solutions to the problem of getting post-secondary vocational training in the area before submitting a Type I application. The district considered the Type I application after the announcement two weeks ago that the North Central Kansas Area Vocational Technical School. would not fund a satellite in Hays. Type I schools are incorporated within the hosting school district and are answerable to that district's school board. "There are a lot of existing programs in the state we could take advantage of," said George Gatschet, who represented the school board at the meeting with Bennett. "We'll have to justify our needs and I think we can." Gatschet said Bennett's advice "didn't throw cold water" on the vo-tech situation for Hays. "He told it like it is — you have to be" concerned about your finances," Gatschet said. "The governor painted a realistic picture, that's better than throwing flowers." Gatschet had asked Bennett if the state might provide the $100,000 a Type I school is estimated to cost in the first year of operation. Bennett answered with a question of his own, Gatschet said. "What do we cut (to provide the money for the Hays school)?" the governor asked. Superintendent of School Harvey Ludwick said the district was "exploring several avenues of approach" in the matter, but that he was "not at liberty to say" which avenues the district was considering.

OMAHA, Neb. (UPI) — Amtrak's San Francisco Zephyr jumped the tracks early Thursday outside Omaha, seriously injuring one of 46 passengers taken to two area hospitals. Four of the six cars of the 11- unit train carrying 166 passengers slid down a 20 foot embankment near a corn field two miles southwest of Omaha, while two others remained dangling over the edge of the embankment. The other cars and one of the two diesel engines also derailed but reamined on the tracks. The train, carrying many Christmas holiday passengers, was enroute from Oakland, Calif, to Chicago. It was the second accident involving an Amtrak train m 24 hours. Wednesday an Amtrak train speeding through the Oklahoma countryside hit an oil transport truck at a rural crossing near Marland, Okla., killing the truck driver and two train crew members. No passengers were injured in the Marland accident. A spokesman for Midlands Community Hospital near Papillion, Neb., said 35 persons were treated there, and two remained hospitalized in satisfactory condition. The remaining 11 injured were taken to Bergan Mercy Hospital in Omaha where Greg Gee, 27, Farragut, Iowa, was in serious condition with internal injuries. Two of the remaining six passengers admitted were in good condition and five were in fair condition. The train's conductor, R.W. Mitchell, Lincoln, Neb., said it was traveling about 65 miles per hour at the time of the accident. However, a railway spokesman in Chicago quoted the engineer as saying the train was traveling at 53 mph—just short of the 55 mph allowed for that part of the track. "There was no hysteria," said Sarpy County Sheriff Pat Thomas. "The evacuation of the passengers from the train went very well. We were very fortunate no one was killed."

Federal Energy Administrator Frank Zarb said Wednesday the administration plan involves spending $8 billion to buy 500 million barrels of foreign oil and store it in underground salt caverns until it's needed. Zarb said the storage plan would carry the nation halfway toward the goal of becoming "embargo proof" by 1985. He said the government would buy oil from the lowest bidder — including the very countries which called the embargo in he first place. The plan is subject to congressional approval, and was drawn up at the direction of Congress after debating it earlier this year. Zarb estimated the cost of filling and maintaining Che reserve through 1982 would be $7.5 to $8 billion, mostly for buying the oil. He said the government hopes to start pumping the oil into caverns in salt domes or abandoned salt mines by midsummer, at eight possible storage sites near refineries in Louisiana and Texas, and possibly in Ohio and Kentucky. WASHINGTON (UPI) — Commerce Secretary Elliot Richardson Thursday endorsed Jimmy Carter's intent to consolidate the federal energy bureaucracy a nd urged Congress to quickly give the White House emergency powers over energy problems. Richardson, chairman of the President's Energy Resources Council also said the United States is faced with energy problems too urgent to be set aside during a Carter organizational shake-up. He told a House energy subcommittee that the new president could be faced with immediate energy problems and would need to be prepared From The Record Marriage License Ronald R.

HOVERCRAFT DOVER, England (UPI) — The giant British seaspeed SRN4 Hovercraft which "fly" between Dover-Calais and Dover-Boulogne each year are being "stretched."

"The president should be given the authority to impose emergency taxes or fees on petroleum products in such an event, or, if there should be rationing, to charge certain users for coupons issued," warned Richardson. Both Richardson and Federal Energy Administrator Frank Zarb testified at the House hearing called by Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., to assess existing U.S. energy policies and potential changes. Carter has indicated one of his major goals is a sweeping reorganization of federal energy agencies, including creation of a cabinet-level energy department to consolidate tasks carried out now by a wide range of agencies. Richardson said Congress should amend its Energy Policy Act to "permit a less complex emergency system and remove iwbition on taxes, fees, ration coupon charges and other price related mechanisms for emergency use."

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries meeting was disrupted when Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani, the powerful Saudi Arabian oil minister, returned home after running into strong opposition to his proposal to freeze prices for six months. A minority of the members called for a 15 per cent price hike, up sharply from the 10 per cent most Wall Street obserkrs had anticipated. In light of the confusion, the Dow Jones industrial average, a 3.16-point winner Wednesday, was off 3.74 to 980.05 shortly before 1:15 p.m. EST. It had been down more than six points. The blue-chip average was vulnerable to profit taking because it has gained 23 points in the past six sessions and more than 59 since early November. On a broader scale, the NYSE common stock index was off 0.24 to 56.39 and the average price of a common share was down 15 cents. Declines led advances by NBC Called Most Violent Network WASHINGTON (UPI) — The National Citizens Committee for Broadcasting said Thursday NBC TV had the most prime time violence on its network during the fall season and General Motor's Chevrolet division sponsored the most violent programs. NCCB chairman Nicholas Johnson told a news conference ratings for 811-week period between Sept. 20 and Dec. 5 showed "Quest," a western about two brothers looking for their lost sister, was the most violent program. In its second survey of prime time violence, NCCB, a Washington-based private media reform group, said CBS-TV continued to be the least violent network, and Peter Paul Candy the advertiser of the least violence. Eleven shows, including "Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Chico and the Man," and "Sirota's Court" had no volence of significance. • The survey, conducted for NCCB by a private television monitoring firm, was financed by a $25,000 grant by the American Medical Association. about a nine-to-four margin among the 1,822 issues crossing the tape. The three-hour turnover amounted to about ^3,040,000 shares, down from the 16,130,000 traded during the same period Wednesday. Analysts said investors were ignoring some government reports that indicated the recent economic slowdown was not as bad as had been thought initially. Among those reports, personal income rose 1.1 per cent in November, the largest jump since August 1975, and industrial production surged 1.2 per cent in the same month, thanks mostly to a resumption of activity at Ford Motor Co. On Wednesday, the Commerce Department said revisions showed its index of leading • economic indicators did nqt fare as badly in the past three months as originally reported. October's index, for example, rose 0.2 per cent, instead being unchanged. American Telephone & Telegraph led the Big Board active list, off '/ 2 to 63% on 126,400 shares. AT&T Wednesday reported a 28 per cent earnings increase during the latest quarter. (Following stocks courtesy of Darrell G Seibei. Edward D. Jones Co.)
