POLK WASHINGTON (AP) - Big trucks are giving the nation's superhighways an unexpected beating that may cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars in repairs, a government investigation warns. A special report to Congress says $200 million is Captive Lions Shot After Youth Killed PORTLAND, ORE. (AP) -Two lions killed a youth who climbed into their pit at the Portland Zoo Saturday night. Monday both lions were dead, victims of a nighttime rifleman. "You'd have to be sick to Fickel Raps Ray Policies DES MOINES (AP) - Dr. Jack Fickel of Red Oak has resigned as president of the State Board of Public Instruction in a sharply worded letter to Gov. Robert Ray. The letter from Fickel was dated June 20, but not made public until Monday. The let-ter strongly criticized the Iowa Legislature and certain aspects of the administration of Ray, a Republican. THE RESIGNATION was effective July 1. While avoiding direct criticism of Ray, Dr. Fickel said "recent repressive policy shifts by the board" have killed any desire to stay on the board. Fickel, a four-year board veteran, also cited the press of his family obligations and his private medical practice which he said suffered because of the "30 working days a year" his board service required. "I was willing to make this sacrifice while there was reasonable expectation that my work on the board could make a significant contribution to the solution of the critical problems with which the board is faced," he said. A NUMBER OF factors, he said, "combine to convince me that thsre is no likelihood that the board will in the 18 remaining months of my term be either willing or able to provide the leadership needed." Fickel declined to elaborate on the policy changes he sees as damaging. The legislature erred in not providing an alternative to the property tax for heavy support of public education, he said, however. Legislative cries for "efficiency" in education often obscure the real financial needs of the schools, he said. "I believe in efficiency, too, but education is not an efficient business." FICKEL'S letter cited the "punitive and penurous attitude of the education leaders in the General Assembly, the constrictively constructionist interpretations o f the Attorney General's office and the paucity of priority for education by the national administration" as factors contributing to his decision. An aide to Ray explained the delay in announcing Fick-cl's resignation by saying the governor's office never announces resignations.

THE GENERAL Accounting Office, Congress' watchdog on federal spending, said Monday virtually all the superhighways built so far in the interstate system may need an added layer of con- shoot an animal that has done nothing wrong' by its own standards," said Jack Marks, zoo director. "No right-thinking person would go into the zoo in the middle of the night and shoot an animal in captivity." ROGER DEAN Adams, 19, of Portland, was the dead youth. The zoo was closed when he and two companions climbed a fence and got into it Saturday night. The companions said he first lowered himself over the side of the grizzly bear pit, clinging by his hands to the edge of the wall, then pulling himself up. He tried it again at the lions' pit after first sitting on the edge. Kenneth Franklin Bowers of Portland, one of Adams' companions, said Adams lowered himself over the edge and as he hung by his fingers he kicked at the lions. ONE SLAPPED at him, hit his foot and Adams feil to the , floor of the grotto, 16 feet below the rim of the wall. The lions then mauled him and it appeared that the carotid artery in his neck was slashed and he bled to death. One of the lions, Caesar, 16, was killed by two bullets from a foreign-made rifle. He had been at the zoo nearly 13 years. Sis, the other adult, was 11 years old. She had been shot in the spine and died Monday morning. Police said they had few clues to who did the shooting. Marks said the zoo will prosecute anyone who is charged. 'ML L Era r?w fx W XT::; I wiK-mAx r. i i v Many apartments available in this beautifully located building.

"The crucial factor is truck Italy Crisis Unsolved ROME (AP) Premier Mariano Rumor's resignation staved off a one-day general strike today, but no end to It-a 1 y 's latest political crisis was in sight. Rumor's four-party Center-Left cabinet resigned Monday after the three major labor federations rejected his appeal to cancel the walkout they had scheduled to press for social reforms. Six hours after the premier handed his resignation to President Giuseppe Saragat, the unions suspended their strike plans. Leftist political groups, including the left wing of his own Christian Democratic party, accused Rumor of playing into the hands of the rightists in an attempt to shift the orientation of the center-left, coalition that has governed Italy for the past several years. The big Communist party said Rumor was hoping ultimately to dissolve Parliament "in a climate of alarm and amid a reactionary crusade." It said he was trying to propel a more conservative Parliament into power by capitalizing on a public fear of disorders. PORTRAIT (Four Proofs) SUMMER SPECIAL a regular $7.95 value!

Most engineers have told us if there were no trucks involved, the highways would last forever," said Bernard Sacks, who headed the GAO investigation. AS LONG AS truck weights keep going up, more federal money is going to be -needed for continual repair, a Texas highway official added in the report. The study involved so-called overlays, an extra inch or more of asphalt concrete placed on top of damaged interstate highways to enable them to stand up under traffic 20 years in the future. The $200 million was earmarked for 2,800 miles of splintering superhighways built before 1963. "A significant amount of the interstate mileage constructed after 1963 will also require overlays before the end of the 20-year period," the report said. "The total overlay costs will vastly exceed those included in the $200 million estimate," it warned. But GAO experts declined to estimate Davenport IDWAIOH.
