Panel Okays College Aid WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Education and Labor Committee Thursday approved a bill that would provide $1 billion in federal grants to help the nation's colleges meet rising costs of instruction. The provision, adopted against the administration's recommendation, was included in a bill extending for five years a wide range of federal programs for higher education. In another setback for the administration, the committee rejected its proposal to concentrate federal aid for students on those from low income families. It voted to tie federal assistance to a student's need, rather than his income. The committee overwhelmingly approved another administration proposal that would establish a National Institute of Education to conduct and support educational research. The bill, similar to one that has already passed the Senate, would greatly increase the authorized spending levels for higher education programs, for which about $1 billion is budgeted this year. Draft Quota Set WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon Thursday set a 10,000- man draft quota for the next three months and indicated next year's inductions will level off at about 1971 's nine-year record low of 98,000. Rural Home 12nd Application on Jf" 1 Fu r nd . I Beer is Withdrawn figure tited TOPEKA — Kansas has received $15,565,000 for low to moderate income rural housing loans for the 1972 fiscal year. In making the announcement Thursday night, Morgan Williams, state director of the Farmers Home Administration, said the figure is up from the $14.4 million received last year and nearly triple the $5 million available in 1969. Funds Tripled Williams said the funds have been tripled "because the Nixon administration is putting high priority on rural development. They are trying to provide decent homes to create the kind of rural communities that encourage people to live in rural areas and small towns." Last year, 1,325 loans were made. Six hundred of those loans were made to families that had incomes of less than $6,500. Basic interest rate on the FmHA loans is 7'/» per cent. Follow income families, the interest can be dropped to as low as 1 per cent. To be eligible for the loans, persons need to show need for better housing and must not be able to obtain a private loan. After receiving the FmHA loan, persons must refinance when they are able to receive a private loan. Goldwater to Speak KANSAS CITY (AP) - Sen.

Officers Raided Wrong Apartment KANSAS CITY (AP) — An assistant Jackson County prosecutor said Thursday he released nine persons arrested in a Kansas City drug raid Tuesday night because police officers raided the wrong apartments. The assistant, Charles Fraas, said officers of the tactical unit went to a magistrate judge Tuesday night to secure the warrants to search two apartments in an 8-unit building. "They must have gotten the apartment numbers wrong when they were typing them," Fraas said. The officers searched six apartments in the building, Fraas said, and reported they found marijuana, barbiturates and amphetamines in three of them. But none of the three were listed on the search warrant. Fraas said the dismissals were based on the fourth Amendment's guarantees against unreasonable search and seizure. Excitement At Start of Foliage Tour The News' Fall Foliage tour which departed last Saturday get. off to a bad start but everything has worked out okay since, Alvin Dumler, host, reports. A "Quickie" Holdup The bus developed a fuel leak between Hutchinson and Kansas City and a few passengers became nauseated but the 2Vz hour repair delay at Kansas City gave the travelers an opportunity to shop in downtown Kansas City and they witnessed a quickie holdup of a candy store with the suspect being arrested within a few minutes.

Gen. Vern Miller not around) on the moment the sun would shine. No one had claimed the dollar (the pool total) Monday night on t h e Michigan-Ontario border but the views of the Fall Foliage were wonderful when the fog lifted.
