Moynihan Defeats Abzug in Primary By The Associated Press It will be Daniel Patrick Moynihan, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, against James Buckley in the race for the U.S. Senate from New York. On a day in which such national figure-, as Edward Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey and William Proxmire were easily renominated for their Senate seats by the Democrats in their states, Moynihan edged Rep. Bella Abzug on Tuesday in New York's Democratic contest and Buckley won as expected on the Republican side. Moynihan, 49, who quit last year as ambassador to the United Nations, held a narrow lead throughout the evening, doing well in working-class and lower middle-class communities in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Mrs. Abzug refused to concede defeat, saying she would wait until an official recanvass, routine under state law, is completed next week. Unofficial returns, with 99 per cent of the state's election districts counted, showed her losing to Moynihan by about Markets New Wheat $2.71 up 4 Old Wheat $2.63 up 4 Milo $4.00 unchg.

Moynihan had 324,906 votes, or 36 per cent, to 316,216, or 35 per cent, for Mrs. Abzug. Former U.S. Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark, New York City Council president Paul O'Dwyer and businessman Abraham Hirschfeld trailed far behind. Despite widespread predictions of voter apathy, the heated Democratic primary race attracted a 25 per cent turnout, about the norm in New York. But the Republican primary, first statewide contest for the GOP in over 50 years, produced only about a 15 per cent turnout. Buckley, 53, won it 70 per cent to 30 per cent for Rep. Peter Peyser of Westchester County. . Voter turnout in 11 other state primaries was light, with estimates running from 17 per cent to 33 per cent. In another race of note, Gov. Philip Noel of Rhode Island was near defeat in his race for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat John O. Pastore. He trailed auto dealer Richard Lorber by 361 votes in the final, unofficial tally, but there were 3,111 absentee ballots still to be counted. Noel has had problems nationally since publicity last spring on some derogatory remarks he made about blacks. But his trouble in the primary is believed to have stemmed more from discontent among Rhode Island voters with the status quo. There were also some noteworthy results in New Hampshire, where outspoken conservative Gov. Meldrim ' Thomson was renominated for a third term by Republicans. The most startling result was a victory by a man named John Adams, who won a GOP congressional primary for which he didn't campaign at all. Timing Perfect Timing was perfect Tuesday for The Garden City Experiment Station Field Day, a day-long event that drew some 135 area farmers. Had the field day been scheduled today rather than Tuesday, the crop tour, above, would have been a messy venture after this morning's heavy rainfall. Several dignitaries from Manhattan, including Dr. Duane Acker, president of Kansas State University, spent the day mingling with area farmers as they toured test plots at the station site and near Holcomb. Faces in the crowd, right, show varying degrees of interest in what's going on. From left are Harold Mulville, Dighton, Don Dumler, Kalvesta, and Dean Stites, Sublette. John Montre 'Definite Evidence 'for Smokers COLD SPRINGS HARBOR, N.Y. (AP) — The first "definitive evidence" shows that persons who smoke low- tar and low-nitocine cigarettes are less likely to die from lung cancer and coronary disease than other smokers. However, the American Cancer Society said its analysis showed that death rates among those who smoke cigarettes low in tar and nicotine were still far higher than the death rates of those who never smoked regularly. The findings were based on an analysis of the deaths of one million men and women over a 12-year period and were reported here Tuesday at a meeting on the "Origins of Human Cancer" at the Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory. • ; For,'..purposes, ! of thevstudy,; "high" tar-nicotine cigarettes were defined'as those containing 25.8 to 35.7 milligrams of tar and 2.0 to 2.7 milligrams of nicotine. "Low" tar- nicotine cigarettes included those with less than 17.6 milligrams of tar and less than 1.2 milligrams of nicotine. "Medium" tar- nicotine smokes were defined as those falling between those two groups. Dr. E. Cuyler Hammond, who presented the findings, said there had been concern that death rates among smokers of low tar and nicotine cigarettes might increase because they would inhale more deeply and thereby take in more carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and "secret additives." The survey showed that lung cancer deaths among smokers of "medium" tar-nicotine cigarettes were 10 per cent fewer than among smokers of high residue cigarettes. Lung cancer deaths from "low" tar- nicotine cigarettes were 26 per cent fewer than among high tar-nicotine cigarette smokers. Corresponding figures for heart disease deaths were 8 per cent fewer for medium tar-nicotine smokers and 14 per cent fewer for low tar- nicotine smokers. However, persons who smoked up to two packs a day of low residue cigarettes had a higher death rate from lung cancer than those who smoked less than a pack a day of the .high tar-nicotine cigarettes. This was true to a lesser degree for heart disease. "We think it fair to say that switching from high tar and nicotine cigarettes to low tar and nicotine cigarettes was at least a small step in the right direction for those who continued to smoke cigarettes," Hammond said, adding: "Those who quit smoking fared considerably better." Here is a list of cigarettes which, according to the Federal Trade Commission's April 1976 report on tar and nicotine content, have less than 17.6 miligrams of tar and 1.2 miligrams of nicotine — the level used by the American Cancer Society in determining which cigarettes were "low" in tar and nicotine: 1.

Harold Mulville Don Dumler Dean Stites 15% of State Payroll Force Linked to Federal Grants TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)—Gov. Robert F. Bennett made public today a study showing that 15 per cent of the state's 100 .total work force is on the payroll to administer federal grants coming into Kansas. The report, compiled by the state Division of Planning and Research, shows that 5,314 state emplpyes are involved in administering the federal Water Pollution, Water Use Controls Study for Kansas Finney County Commission Chairman Bob Buerkle is now a member of a 25-man advisory board to study water quality in the state. Buerkle attended the first meeting of the group Monday in Topeka. He said the group will be studying all aspects of water use and water quality control in the state during the Yowell Wants 'Showdown'with Sebelius Randy Yowell, First District Democratic Congressional candidate from Hays, met with reporters Tuesday in Garden City to announce an upcoming debate between himself and his opponent Keith Sebelius, the Republican four-term incumbent from Norton. "I'm in Garden City for the fact that I'm going to pick some votes up here: I'm going to pick some strength up here, I'm going to pick up some Telegram Photo RANDY YOWELL, D-Hays, outfitted with his campaign cowboy hat and carrying his symbolic bag of wheat, made a stop in Garden City in his campaign to unseat First District Congressman Keith Sebelius, R-Norton. people that believe in what I have to say — that believe in me and they don't believe in Keith Sebelius," Yowell s.aid before announcing the debate. "I've finally flushed Keith out in the open," Yowell said of the debate. "I'm trying to get it (the debate) in Dodge City on Front Street at high noon for a 'Showdown'. Now that sounds like it's a little bit of show business," Yowell said, "but I want the people to see Keith Sebelius in action. I want the people to see Randy Yowell in action. I want the people to know who Keith Sebelius is and what he stands for. "I want to get him out in the open. I want to have a 'no holds barred' debate with him and that means no interviewers or newsmen'there — just me and him talking." "I think I can expose him for what he is — incompetent, a non-entity paper shuffler, a man who sits on his hands during the last wheat embargo, a man who sat on his hands during the price freeze, a man with no leadership capacity," Yowell said. For an "added flair" to his campaign, Yowell wears a cowboy hat and carries a bag of wheat while on the campaign trail. "It shows you what I symbolize," he said of the campaign outfit. "I symbolize the cattleman, the farmer and one of the reasons I've got the sack of wheat is I'm going to hit Keith Sebelius right where it hurts. "I'm going to him right in the 'Butz' with it. That's Earl Butz (Secretary of Agriculture)," Yowell said. "I'm going to take this sack of wheat when I'm elected. I'm going to go the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. and I'm going to take the wheat and take it out of the bag and put it out on the House because I want people back in Washington, D.C. to know who I am, where I come from, what I stand for and that I mean business. "I'm going to show leadership—strong leadership—something Keith Sebelius has never shown in his life," he said. Time and date for the debate have not been finalized, according to Yowell. next two years, and writing a water quality plan with the data compiled. "What we're basically trying to compile is an inventory of where we are now and where we are going in regard to our water pollution and water use controls," Buerkle said. Dodge City Manager Lee Brodbeck and executive secretary of Ground Water Management District No. 1, Keith Lebbin, Scott City, also are on the advisory committee. - "Gathering data is basically our function for the first year," Buerkle said. Then compiling and assessing the findings will be the next function of the committee, according to Buerkle. Recreational and city drinking water use and needs also will be part of the committee's study, he said. A federal grant of $1.009 million- is supposed to be approved in October with which to implement the study, he said. "The needs of the people and the problems of the area" will be what Buerkle and the other local representatives on the committee will be trying to establish during the first-year fact-finding period, he said. Airport's August Activity 'Normal' Activity during the month of August was about normal at Garden City Municipal Airport. Daily average number of takeoffs and landings was 92 — the same as the yearly average. Here is a summary of flight activity.

The committee on which Buerkle is serving, and the entire water quality program, is under the direction of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The committee will serve as a liaison between the local government and people and the state agencies which will coordinate the state-wide project. Members of -the advisory committee can be either local governmental officials or their appointed representatives, he said. Buerkle will be on the committee as a local governmental official until his term on the Finney County Commission expires the end of this year. Then, he said, his appointment or replacement as a member of the advisory committee will be up to the Greater Southwest Planning Commission which appointed him in the first place. The nine general areas of study for the committee will include agricultural run-off, mineral intrusion, mine drainage, irrigation, construction erosion, groundwater management and quality problems, institutional assessment (including solid waste disposal), economic and environmental and social impact, and residual waste management.

Bennett said in a statement accompanying the report that more than 10 per cent of the cost of administering the federal funds goes "for simple federal-state liaison tasks." "We are required to spend $290,000 annually just to prepare grant applications, $31,000 to amend and modify approved applications, $212,000 to communicate with federal bureaucrats on their guidelines and requirements, $435,000 to keep up with changing federal developments, and $2.2 million to provide fiscal control, accounting and record keeping," the governor said. Keep Fit Class Offered at Juco Debbie Bray, dance and physical education instructor at Garden City Community College, will conduct another evening class this semester entitled "Keep Fit With Movement." Organizational meeting for the class is scheduled tonight at 7:30 in the college gym (danceproduction room). Fee for the class, which carries one credit, is $23. The class will meet twice weekly. Those interested but unable to attend tonight are asked to call the college at 276-7611. "This report begins to erode the widely held myth that federal money provides a free ride and gives solid evidence of my stand and that of other governors in favor of federal block grants rather than narrow categorical programs." Block grants would "help eliminate the need for state manpower engaged'in pa'pe'r- shuffling tasks now associated with this federal categorical grant system," the governor added. "It also would free up resources to provide improved services to citizens—which is what these grant programs were intended to do in the first place." Based on the report, Bennett said he has directed heads of state agencies to recommend "specific ways of improving the use and administration of federal funds coming to Kansas." Bennett had previously that federal programs would be given careful scrutiny during this fall's budget hearings. "The money and manpower required to administer these federal funds are not the only cause for alarm," Bennett said. "This report, for the first time, identifies the pervasive character, the breadth and depth, of federal intervention and influence in the affairs of state government." He said the state currently administers 163 federal programs, each with its own set of rules and regulations, "many of which compare favorably with a Christmas catalog."
