The driver, William C. Mueller, 0, Kansas City, told Trooper larold Bennett that "I must have lozed off." Bennett charged Hueller with driving under the in- luence of intoxicating liquor and took him to the Franklin County jail. Late this morning, Mueller ap- >eared in County Court where his xmd was set at $350. He was released after posting the bond and will appear on Feb. 27. Mueller was westbound from Kansas City to Hutchinson with a trailer - transport loaded with 34,000 pounds of general freight. Be is a driver for Mid-American Truck Lanes of Kansas City. Skid marks indicate, Bennett said, that he went off the west side of 1-35 as he neared Wolf Creek. Rear wheels of the trailer struck the guard rail, battering it for some 50 feet before they hit the bridge abutment. The big vehicle then veered across th highway, hit the bridge and damaged 100 feet of railing. About 75 feet of railing was ripped away. Rear wheels of the trailer jumped the railing and fell into the creek. The tractor - trailer, less rear wheels, continued down the highway another 300 feet before it stopped.. It spilled freight as it went, littering the highway with paper itenjs such as snap - out forms and those little squares of paper on which butter is served at restaurants. Included in the items dropped were TV sets, coils of wire, rope and welding rods. Bennett said the impact of the. rear wheels broke loose one of KSU To Observe 100th Birthday MANHATTAN, Kan.

So Says Soviet Union No Test Ban Treaty V Without Concessions GENEVA (AP)-The Soviet Union declared today talks for negotiation of a treaty to ban nuclear testing can only be kept alive if the Western powers offer a major concession. Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily V. Kiiznetsov said a treaty really is within easy reach and accused the Western powers of stalling. He left the impression with delegates to the 17-nation disarmament conference that Russia expects the West to accept the Soviet offer of a maximum of two or three on-site inspections a year. In the view of the Western powers this is inadequate to check suspicious earth tremors in the Soviet Union. Kuzentsov described the Soviet offer as a major concession, and added: "The matter now rests with the United States." Outside the conference room, Soviet spokesman Yuri Tchernia- kov told newsmen: "We have made great and important concessions of principle to meet the Western point of view. Our position was and remains that on-site inspections are not necessary. We offered two to three inspections only to overcome the deadlock in the negotiations. We now expect concessions to come from the Western side." In the conference room, Kuznetsov asserted: "Conditions have never been as favorable as now for banning all nuclear tests." But he asserted that statements made by American and British delegates since the conference re- sumd Tuesday "only confirmed our point of view that the Western powers are not seeking agreement on a test ban but are doing everything they can to drag out the negotiations." "For the Soviet Union there can be no question whether to con* elude a treaty or not," Kuznetsov declared. "We adhere to a very clear position. We have moved considerably forward in order to meet the U.S. position. The matter now rests with the United States.* He left little doubt that the Soviet Union was not prepared at this time to raise its offer to permit two or three on-site inspections a year on Soviet territory. The Western powers are demand* ing eight to 10 inspections. 3 Weeks To File For City Election Persons wanting to file as candidates for Ottawa board of education positions or for the office of city commissioner of finance, have only three weeks in which to do so. Saturday noon, March 9, is the deadline for filing, the deadline being 10 days prior to the date for the primary, March 19. A primary election may not be necessary. There are three positions to be filled on the board of education and just one city commission post. To require a primary on March 19, it will be necessary to have seven or more candidates for the board of education, or, three or more candidates for the city commission post. The vote in the primary on March 19 would then narrow the field to six candidates for board of education positions and two for the city commission office. The city election date is Tuesday, April 2.
