(DPI) -- A resolution proposing a constitutional amendment requiring Congress to pass a balanced budget was approved by the Missouri Senate on a 229 vote Tuesday. The'measure, sponsored by Sen. Mary L. Cant, D-Kansas City, had been shelved- last week when questions concerning its form arose. Mrs. Gant then promised to ask Wyoming officials about its wording. Since Wyoming was the originating state, she said officials there should know how it should be worded. Sen. A. Clifford Jones, R- Brentwood, had told Mrs. Gant he was in favor of her amendment, but because it did not mandate Congress to present such a resolution for approval by the states, it would not accomplish its purpose. "The resolution accomplishes nothing," Jones said. "It doesn't mandate Congress to do anything. I told you last week what they would do with it make a paper airplane of it and toss it out a Washington window." The resolution is designed to mandate Congress to submit to the states a constitutional amendment to forbid federal appropriations exceeding estimated revenue, except when a national emergency has been declared. Many senators feared the resolution would cause Congress to call a constitutional convention instead of proposing an amendment, thus allowing the convention to make any changes it wanted in the Constitution. "You've got a lot of kooky people running around these days with a lot of kooky ideas how the Constitutional ought to be changed," Sen. Paul L. Bradshaw, R-Springfield, said. "I can't believe anybody in his right mind wants to see a constitutional convention called." Sen. Maurice Schechler, D- Creve Coeur, also objected to that possibility. "It opens everything up!" Schechter said. "They could do anything! They could do away with the supreme court, and that might be good. But, this whole thing scares me." Mrs. Gant assured members officials in Wyoming and elsewhere said her resolution was drafted properly and an amendment, instead of a "constitutionalconvention, would be used. "My resolution is the model," she said, saying many states were working toward adoption. If three-fourths of the nation's legislatures adopt similar resolutions, Congress would have to submit the amendment for ratification. One Ozark-area legislator expressed his displeasure with members of Congress in general. "The vast majority of members of Congress are pusilani- mous nitwits," Sen. Emory Melton. R-Cassville,declared. The resolution still must pass the House to be sent to Congress.

'Once he started... he killed them all' BLUE MOUND, Tex. (UPI) -- Greg Joplin opened his front door to find the body of his mother on the blood-spattered living room rug. His father's bndy was nearby in a hallway and his two brothers had been shot to death in their bedrooms. Joplin, 20, heard a noise in the back of the home, grabbed a rifle from behind the door and rushed to the kitchen to confront his neighbor and friend, Terry Trice. "I told him to freeze but he kept moving so I shot," said Joplin. "Police told me later he was a friend of mine." Trice, an 18-year-old unemployed high school dropout, was killed. Police said he apparently was trying to steal some outdated guns worth only a few dollars. "It appeared to be a burglary attempt that failed," Tarrant County deputy George Adams said. "He was a family acquaintance who went in to steal some rifles. He knew the family. He knew where they were. "Whelhcr ho inli-nrtott In kill the family when he went in, we don't know. But once he started, he killed them all." Trice used one of the guns, a World War I vintage .303 Enfield rifle, to kill Wayne Joplin, 43; his wife, Kayo, 40; and two of their sons, Brian, 17, and Kevin, 0. Greg Joplin was treated at a hospital for shock and released. Police Chief Gary Erwin called the Monday night incident "a senseless, senseless massacre. "There was nothing there to steal really. There was nothing of value in the house They were just middle class people in a quiet neighborhood." Erwin said Trice lived with his mother near the Joplin's small frame house. "He had had his ups and downs. We were at cross purposes once or twice but nothing serious," Ihe police chief said. "Minor differences of opinion between he and I. But he had never been in serious trouble." Police believed Trice entered through the kitchen door and removed the rifle from a back closet. Apparently he was surprised by Mrs. Joplin. "We can only guess at that," Adams said. "She was shot in front of the television set in Ihe living room. Her husband apparently rushed to her aid from the rear bedroom and was shot in the hall. "Then it rnally gnt gory The \ 17-year-old was shot in the eye in his bedroom and then the assailant went across the hall to the other bedroom and literally blew the C-year-old's head off."
