HEADING SOUTH Various bacteria found in the Southern Hemisphere in muddy sediments under both fresh and salt water near Christchurch, New Zealand, and Hobart, Australia, swim in a southerly direction using the earth's magnetic field for orientation. This is the first time south-swimming bacteria have been reported, according to National Geographic. Bacteria that always head north were discovered in the Northern Hemisphere in 1975. Varley worried about possibility of expanded grain handler rules By HARRISON WEBER Iowa Daily Press Association DES MOINES - Andrew Varley, chairman of the Iowa Commerce Commission, is concerned that the U.S. Department of Agriculture may try to set up a federal grain handler's license. Until now, this has been an area left to the states to regulate. Iowa licenses both grain dealers and warehousemen, while the federal government only licenses warehousemen. (A warehouseman is a person who stores grain temporarily for an individual while a grain dealer purchases grain for resale and takes title to it.) If someone has a federal warehouse license, he still must get an Iowa grain dealers license. But if the federal government starts issuing grain handler's licenses, Iowa stands to lose not only the revenue from grain dealer licenses, but a great degree of control over such facilities. Varley led a delegation of state officials to Washington. D.C., last week. In a meeting Friday with officials of the USDA, Varley discovered they are "very much interested" in attempting to set up a federal grain handler's license. "We have some real problems with that. We have a threat of losing inspections completely on some elevators," he commented in an interview. On the other hand, Varley said, the USDA officials were "very supportive" of the state's attempt to upgrade some of the federal requirements on grain inspections. A bill is pending in the Legislature that would require grain dealers and warehousemen to have an audited financial statement each year as a condition for getting a ljcense. "We discovered that the federal officials are just as concerned as we are in Iowa about requiring a financial statement. They said they would make their requirements for a financial statement (for the warehouseman's license) just as rigorous as Iowa's," Varley reported. Varley said the federal agency is seriously considering requiring warehousemen in every state to file a financial statement by a certified public accountant as a condition for obtaining a license. "They think a certified audit is one of the most effective tools they have at their disposal," Varley added. Under present federal requirements, it is possible for a warehouseman who has several storage facilities in Iowa to post a maximum bond of $500,000. The state has no limit on the amount of bond required for warehousemen; instead the maximum bond is based on the storage capacity. The minimum bond for grain dealers is $25,000. Varley quoted federal officials as saying their $500,000 maximum may be too low and they will consider raising it. "One of the things I was not aware of, and I suppose that I probably should have been, is that in addition to the warehouseman's bond, the federal government also requires the warehouseman to have a net worth equal to 20 cents per bushel of his storage capacity." The bill in the Legislature, which already has passed the Senate, would require warehousemen and grain dealers licensed by the state to have a minimum net worth of $10,000 at all times. Under present conditions, they can dip below' that amount by posting a bond. Thursday, Varley and other officials from the state Commerce Commission, ' plus six Iowa legislators, met with mem-' bers of the Iowa congressional delegation ' to discuss the status of federal rules and regulations governing grain inspections. , Varley said it was a "very beneficial" , meeting. Attempt to use astrology as defense thrown out FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -The way attorney Jack Nageley saw it, he was giving the judge a chance to "follow the flow into the brotherhood of man" by entertaining the notion that his client's life of crime was ordained by the stars. But Broward Circuit Judge Joseph E. Price, who said he was "inclined to believe there is a certain verity" to astrology, threw out the proposed defense at a pretrial hearing Monday for 23-year-old Mark Quinn Denton, who is charged with rape, robbery and assault. "One would wonder whether you have cynically decided to do this to have a circus," Price told Nageley, who promptly resigned as Denton's counsel. The judge, who later said he would have removed Nageley if the lawyer had not quit, ordered the state attorney's office to investigate Nageley for possible professional misconduct. Nageley, 57, who a decade ago unsuccessfully defended Jack "Murf the Surf" Murphy on murder and jewel theft charges, said he would tender his resigna tion to the Florida Bar a move Price said could preclude any charges. Denton's trial was postponed indefinitely. Nageley had planned to argue Denton was insane by virtue of his astrological destiny. His list of potential evidence included songs, Shakespearean plays and comic books. Prosecutors allege Denton robbed a Plantation, Fla., couple's home, raped the woman and knifed the man. Police say Denton, who was on parole after serving 18 months for sexual assault and kidnapping, was wearing a bra on his head when he was arrested leaving the townhouse last year. A second defendant, Thomas E. Sheridan, is being tried separately. Nageley said his client born at 8:14 p.m. on Aug. 8, 1956 was literally "a bom loser." "There is a force in the life of this young man that forced him to go on transmission fluid, sniff gasoline, cocaine, anything he could get his hands on," he said, Nageley said he intended to present testimony from astrologers, scientists and mental health experts, as well as a bartender who would describe the effects of the full moon on human behavior. The list of potential defense evidence included the songs, "When You Wish Upon a Star," Spiderman comic books and the plays "King Lear" and "Hamlet." "I'm trying to bring levity back into life a lightness," Nageley told the court. "I'm trying to introduce society to the dawn of Aquarius, the age of the brotherhood of man." Price said he thought it possible that astrology influenced human behavior. However, he said, if anything, "it is something that impels but does not compel," and he bristled at the thought that the defense could make a laughing stock of the judicial system. "The court recognizes the brotherhood of all mankind," said the judge. "But I also love the law and I love justice."
