Audit raps wardens HELENA (AP) -- Fish and Game Department wardens could be costing the state money because of their poor performance in checking Montana's 425 regular license agents, an internal audit report says. The report, prepared for the Fish and Game Department, said wardens don't understand the reports submitted by license agents and don't know how to audit those agents. Wardens also are responsible for enforcing laws pertaining to fur dealers. But the audit said interviews with fur dealers in six cities and towns showed none had been audited by the wardens. Snow melt normal BOZEMAN (AP) -- Snowpack in mountain ranges of Montana is melting at normal rates for the season, although depths of up to eight feet remain in some areas, the U.S. Soil Conservation Service reported Saturday. The agency said snow surveys made near June 1 indicated mountain snowpack is a little below average in the Flathead River drainage and in the mountains of central Montana. Snowpack in other areas is generally average or a little above, the report said. The agency said most streams appear to have passed their snowmelt peaks. Court orders payment HELENA (AP) -- The Montana Supreme Court on Friday upheld a trial court decision it said gave maximum Workers Compensation Act benefits to beneficiaries of the late William G.

At the time of the accident, Kimball was making deliveries of gas for Richard Brainard, a friend, who was the bulk plant operator for Continental. Brainard was away on active duty in the Army Reserve. A four-member majority of the Supreme Court up- · held the Elaine County District Court's support of the Workers Compensation Division position that Kimball was a Continental employe. Inspection lack gets death blame SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Faulty brakes that probably caused a bus carrying a high school choir to crash and kill 29 persons would have been fixed had the bus been property inspected, the California Highway Patrol says. CHP Commissioner Glen Craig said Friday that a · broken brake compressor belt was the "most likely" cause ol the freeway accident last month near the San Francisco Bay area city of Martinez. Craig told a news conference (hat several weeks before the accident a CHP inspector visited Student Transportation Lines, Inc., owner of the bus. But he said the inspector did not check the bus because he was told it was being sold and would "no longer be in use." "If we had inspected, we would have required that belt be changed," he said. Killed in the tragedy were 28 members of the Yuba City High School choir and a teacher who was the wife of the choir director. Bridge removed Members of the local National Guard unit aided city officials Saturday in the removal of the bridge in Kalispell's Woodland Park. City officials had asked the guard unit to assist in removing the bridge which is scheduled to be dismantled. National Guard Photo Reagan raps Ford ad LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ronald Reagan's California campaign director on Saturday demanded that President Ford withdraw a series of commercials which say Ronald Reagan could start a war if elected. Lyn Nofziger, California director of Citizens for Reagan, called the commercials "dirty tricks" and appealed to the Federal Communications Commission and all broadcast stations to bar them. Nofziger said the commercials are "libelous and untrue" and said: "We think it's the kind of dirty tricks that we thought had been thrown out of the White House. It smacks of dishonesty and desperation and unethical conduct." There was no immediate response from Ford, The President's California press secretary, Larry Peck, declined to comment on Nofziger's "dirty tricks" charge and said the commercials would not be withdrawn. He said they were being delivered Saturday for immediate broadcast fay 24 television stations and 75 radio stations, mostly in the San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego areas. The commercials cite Reagan's remarks last Wednesday that as president he might send a token force of American troops to Rhodesia if necessary to preserve peace there. An announcer summarizes the statements and then says: "On Thursday he clarified that. He'said they could be observers, or advisers. What does he think happened in Vietnam? Gov. Reagan couldn't start a war. President Reagan could." Heagan told reporters when he arrived in Columbus for a campaign swing through Ohio that the commercials represent "an absolute fabrication."
