Urge a Big Export Drive WASHINGTON (AP) — A presidential commission urged the Nixon administration Monday to launch a vigorous U.S. export drive during this decade while pushing to wipe out all world trade barriers within 25 years. The 27-member Commission on International Trade and Investment Policy called for the nation to face what it called new realities of international economic life and help restore the United Stales' or.ce-premicr position in world trade. Some of its recommendations already have been adopted by President Nixon, including one to impose a temporary import tax while the nation's balance- of-payments deficit persists. But the presidentially appointed commission came down hard on the side of free trade, urging against widespread restrictions that could cause even more restrictions. It said the major world powesr should begin new talks aimed at ending all such barriers within the next quarter-century. Some points in the majority findings drew strong dissent from labor members of the panel. The Courts MAGISTRATE Traffic — Nettales Peterson, Inman, speeding, $15. Wilson G.

District Court jurors were to continue deliberation at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the trial of Jack Argo, 23, 1003 West 18th. The jury foreman reported a deadlock shortly before 5 p.m. Monday. Argo is appealing convictions from Magistrate Court of riding a motorcycle 95 mph in a 60 mph zone and disobeying a stop sign. He was fined a tx)tal $40 July 2 after a trial which included accusations of misconduct on the part of Douglas Dick, sheriff's captain, and Leroy Gehring, deputy city marshal a t Buhler. Agro claimed in the trial and again in District Court Monday that Dick fired a shot at him and that Dick and Gehring struck him after a chase. Jurors received the case at 3:15 p.m. and were .sent home at 5 p.m. Argo admits committing the violations, but he maintains that he did so because he was in fear of bodily harm or death. This is a defense provided in traffic cases by state statute. Argo 1'4 miles south of Buhler, but the defendant braked his motorcycle to a stop, made u-turn, and proceeded back north. In the meantime, Gehring, who also had left his house after hearing motorcycles, had followed Dick and Argo and saw the motorcycle coming back north. He testified he pulled into Argo's lane of traffic, stopped and turned on his red light, but he pulled back into his own lane when it appeared Argo wasn't going to slop. Gehring said his red light, which is issued to him by the City of Buhler, can be placed on top of his pickup or on the dashboard. It was on the dashboard during the chase. According to testimony, Dick The defendant was ticketed in the early morning hours of June 13 after Dick and Gehring forced him off the road west of Buhler. He testified he was frightened when the two unmarked vehicles began chasing him. "I didn't have the fauitest idea who they were, what they were doing or anything else," Argo told the jury of three women and nine men. Dick, who lives in Buhler, testified he was in bed when he heard motorcycles creating a disturbance, and be got out of bed and went in pursuit. He was wearing trousers, but had no shoes or shirt and was carrying no identification. Dick said he pulled in behind Argo as Argo left Buhler and rode south on the Buhlcr- Havcn Road. He pur.sued Argo at speeds up to 95 mph. "I was flashing my lights at him, honking occasionally, trying to get him to pull over," Dick testified. He said he pulled alongside Braille Trail Is Planned MANHA'ITAN, Kan. (AP) A trail for the blind is being planned here as part of the Hines Memorial Nature Trail located on the southwest edge of Tuttle Creek Lake. The initial phase of the braille trail, with guide ropes and braille signs describing vegetation, may be completed before winter, according to Mrs.! F. W. Hackerott, president of the Manhattan Area Chapter of the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Mrs. Hackerott, of Ogden, Kan., said with the permission ,of the Corps of Engineers, the group may plant cottonwoods to the trail in order to have the state tree on the trail. She said she hopes work may begin by October on the area, which 'She described as "just a good hike." She noted persons with impaired sight may touch Ijark and leaves and hear and smell the water. Indications are the braille trail will be the first in the midwest. Mrs. Hackerott said she had heard of similar trails only on the east and west coasts. and Gehring pursued Argo north to the intersection of Dutch Avenue, and then west untii they forced him off the road. Dick testified Argo was traveling 15 to 20 mph when they forced him off. Argo said he was traveling 45 to 50 mob. Argo testified he had no indication his pursuers were law enforcement officers, and he would have stopped as soon as Dick pulled in behind if he had known. "I couldn't tell who he was from Adam or Eve," he said. However, he testified that Dick once pulled along side hhn so closely "if there had been a passenger I could have shaken hands with him." Argo said his glasses flew off when he turned his head to see if the vehicles were still in pursuit, which made "everything a big blur." Despite this, he afterward drove 80 to 90 mph because he was frightened, Argo testified. He said at one point he heard a noise that sounded like a motorcycle backfire but after hearing it a second time, realized someone was shooting at him. Dick and Gehring, who both had guns in their vehicles, testified that they did not fire the weapons.

(AP) - Atty. Gen. Vern Miller said Monday he had checked out the games beuig played at the Mid-America Fair in Topeka to see that they do not violate the state's statutes on gambling, and said he will personally go to Hutchinson Friday to make a similar check on games at the State Fair. Found One Miller said his weekend check at the Mid-America Fair turned up only one game which he said state law wouldn't permit, and the operator of the game voluntarily closed it. The illegal game, Miller said, involved a person paying money to pull three strings from a big handful of strings hanging down. If the person pulled the "right" three strings, he won a big teddy bear. Miller said there was no way skill could be interpreted in the selection of the three strings or in the pulling of them, so the game contained elements of a lottery — which is illegal under Kansas law. Miller said he and his agents had told operators at the Mid- America Fair what kind of games were legal, and that those considered illegal had not been conducted at the fair. "They had taken a lot of games out of the midway," Miller said. "We've had no problems with cooperation." No Bingo Games Miller noted that the Mid- America Fair had no bingo Spits Watermelon Seed 37 Feet to Win Croivn PARDEEVILLE, Wis. (AP) - A teacher from Chicago spat a watermelon seed 37 feet, 4 inches Sunday to win the seed - spitting trophy at Pardeeville's annual watermelon eating contest.

John Elliottof Milwaukee was second with 35 feet, 6 inches, and Dennis Schkirke, Milwaukee, third at 32 feet, 9% inches. The event drew an estimated 5,000 persons, including the "watermelon queen," Lynette Loesselman, 20, of St. Louis, Mo. games—which are legal in Kansas only when operated by a nonprofit organization. He said the State Fair in Hutchinson, also will not be permitted to operate any bingo games, or any other games unless skill is involved. Miller conceded some of the games stretch the definition of what "skill" is. If there is any thread of skill involved, however, Miller is allowmg the games to be played.

Fastening safety belts is not a pain in the neck: Fastening safety belts saves necks. Not to mention lives. We estimate that 8,000 to 10,000 lives could be saved every year if everyone used safety belts. As new car dealers, it's not only frustrating for us to see people ignore their safety belts-it's heartbreaking when we think of the serious injuries that could be prevented. And the lives that could be saved. Buckling your safety belts should be the first thing you do. Every time you get in ypur car. It takes only a second. And it's aliabit that becomes second nature. So please get the safety belt habit. For the ride of your life. Dealers displaying this seal subscribe to the NADA Code of Business Pracllcea.
