December 23, 1&76 PAGE 14 HAYS DAILY NEWS CIA-ITT Link Checked NEW YORK (UPI) — The Justice Department is investigating charges that a close working relationship between the CIA and International Telephone & Telegraph Co. aimed at heading off Marxist rule in Chile was concealed from Senate investigating committees, it was reported Thursday. The New York Times and the New York Daily News quoted Justice Department sources as saying former CIA Directors Richard Helms and John McCone and ITT President Harold Geneen are key figures in the in- Bids To Be Opened On Hospital Equipment OAKLEY (HNS) — Sealed bids on equipment in the old Logan county hospital will be opened Jan. 7. The equipment includes kitchen appliances and air conditioners of varying capacities. The county commission earlier this year rejected bids on the hospital building and its equipment and three vacant lots behind the structure. vestigation into the clandestine efforts to prevent Salvador Allende, a Marxist, from being elected president of Chile in 1970. Allende died during a right- wing military coup in 1973. However, the News also reported high Justice Department officials have said there is little credible evidence that McCone, who was now on ITT's board of directors, had 1 violated any law. Allegations of CIA-ITT collusion in Chile and perjury by high ITT and intelligence officials were forwarded to the Justice Department earlier this year by Edward Korry, the former U.S. ambassdador to Chile, who served in the Santiago post from 1967 to 1971 The newspaper reports said Hal Hendrix, a former ITT executive in Latin America, told the "Justice Department that high CIA and ITT officials had lied in testimony before Senate committees. Hendrix pleaded guilty Nov. 5 to a charge of withholding information from Qongress in an apparent plea bargaining arrangement with federal prosecutors. The probe into possible perjury charges centers on testimony before the Senate subcommittee on multinationals in 1973 and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in 1976. Both committees were headed by Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho. The News said grand juries in Washington and Miami were hearing evidence in the probe. No Liability Law Found On Liquor TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) Attorney General Curt Schneider today said there is no recent case law to show whether a Kansan who serves an alcoholic beverage may be sued for damage caused by the recipient of the drinks. Monday, the Rev. Richard Taylor Jr. of the Kansas United Dry Forces, cited cases of bartenders or others who served alcohol being forced to pay damages for accidents in other states involving intoxicated persons. He asked Schneider if that was the case in Kansas. The attorney general replied that Kansas had a law from 1868 until 1949 that provided a person injured by an intoxicated person could sue the one who served drinks to the intoxicated person. That law was repealed by the Kansas Liquor Control Act of 1949. "Since that time, I can find no reported Kansas decisions bearing on that question," Schneider said. "Thus, although there appears to be no post-1949 precedent in favor of such liability, neither does there appear to be any precedent against it." The attorney general said the question remains open and difficult to predict. In closing his letter to Taylor, Schneider warned that Kansans serving alcoholic beverages should be mindful of damages their guests could cause and that there is a possibility they might be liable for it. Industrialized Nations To ^__^ Escape Recession In 1977 ( Hospital Notes > PARIS (UPI) - The industrialized nations will escape recession in 1977 but inflation will ease only slightly and unemployment will increase, an authoritative report said Thursday. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which guides the economies of the rich countries, released its long- awaited forecast for the industrialized world for 1977. The OECD issued an optimistic report in July but in October the slowdown of economic recovery brought gloomy unconfirmed reports that the OECD in December would forecast a recession for 1977. The new report said, "Although the 1977 outlook is weaker than suggested last July, it does not add up to recession." However, the report said recent economic developments "suggest a weaker picture after mid-1976, the rate of growth ending December 1977 falling back to the3'/2 to4 percent range and with unnemployment rising again. Inflation is now ex- Christmas Reflecting at Christmas, we give thanks to our many friends. NOTICE We will close Christmas Eve at 3:00 p.m. and will re-open Sunday Dec. 26th. FAMILY RESTAURANT East 8th Hays pected to slow down slightly." At a news conference, John Fay of Britain, head of the economics and statistics department at OECD, said the forecasts were based on the assumption of an oil price increase of 4 to 5 per cent. He said it still was not clear where prices would go because two OPEC countries stuck to 5 per cent while the others asked 10 per cent, with another 5 per cent increase in July. "It depends for one thing on what the winter' is like," he said. Fay with cautious optimism said the newly forecast drop in the rich nations' growth for 1977 was only a "marginal deceleration." He said "the most recent indications for the United States since our report was made are slightly more cheerful."

Horses Go Out On Town Again For the third time in recent weeks, George Joy's horses jumped their fences and went out on the town on a gambol. Joy, a stable owner, and Hays police scrambled around Thursday morning for nearly 45 minutes in pursuit of the excited thoroughbreds. The horses, about a dozen in all, escaped from the field where they are kept west of Hall on 27th street. In their brief moment of freedom, the frisky horses trotted around the North Dillions's area. Joy said his herd was young and "pretty excitable," which often is the case with thoroughbreds. He suspects neighborhood dogs had been let off their leashes and chased the horses out of the field. It has happened before, Joy said, most recently last Saturday. The biggest concern is the possibility of an auto accident, he said. Although he has his suspicions about who might own the dogs, Joy said he couldn't be certain, at least not yet. "What can you do?" he asked. "The country does have a leash law, but..." Hays police told Joy nothing could be done about the dogs unless they attached the horses. Stock Quotations (At of 1 P.M. Hoyi Tim*) NEW 'YORK (UPI) Selected itockl on the New York Stock Exchange.

Metal Prices Airman's Bid To 'Fly' In Car Halted C Averages Two young members of the United States Air Force were allowed to continue on their way to Hardy, Arkansas for the Christmas Holiday Wednesday, after a brief encounter with the Highway Patrol and Ellis County Court. The two will probably remember-they are traveling in a car, not a plane, however, and halt their attempt to fly across Kansas on the highways. Ellis County Court Judge Tom Scott accepted Airman Kenneth Wayne Richardson's $10 court cost payment and promise to send $82 to cover the speeding fine before sending the two airmen, stationed at Lowry AFB, Colorado, on their way. Richardon was stopped on 'Interstate 70 near Hays and arrested for going 101 mph in a 55 mph zone. Richardson's friend apparently offered to hock a guitar and CB radio to cover the fine and allow the airmen to make it home in time for Christmas. Scott, however, refused the offer after eliciting a promise form Richardson to send the money the next time he got paid. Scott said he usually lets out-of-state and military traffic violators -off with a court cost and their promise to send money to pay for the fine.
