Reports on Clean-Up Month in city d « to '«"-"« r ' under debate is April 26 to May 25 "Clean-Up Month" in Fergus Falls began officially on Monday and will continue through May 2i, giving city residents a chance to dispose of debris accumulated through the winter at no cost. Refuse will be picked up on regular routes from whatever spot garbage is normally left. People whose garbage cans are in alleys may leave extra garbage there and people whose access is from the street should leave refuse on the curbs. The City Council established C!ean-Up Month at its last meeting. Usually, one week in May has been designated as clean-up time, but in the past this has resulted in large overtime costs for city sanitation crews — {2,643 in 1975. The month-long drive will enable the crews to pick up extra refuse on their regular time. Clean-up day in downtown Fergus Falls was set for Monday, May 3 by the Chamber of Commerce's retail trade committee. Businessmen are asked to sweep out sidewalks, alleys and adjacent parking lots beginning at the close of business at 5:30 p.m. DESMOINES, Icwa(AP)- The Iowa Senate decided Monday that a doctor's license should require him to report serious wrongdoing by other doctors. The Senate defeated a proposal to remove the reporting requirement from legislation designed to hold down costs of medical malpractice insurance. *CIA Crop work is ahead of normal ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Spring field work in Minnesota is running well ahead of normal development in the state, says the State-Federal Crop Reporting Service. Although showers slowed field work in the Red River Valley, 56 per cent of the wheat has been planted statewide, compared with the normal of 25 percent. The report added Monday that 72percentoftheoats crop Candidacy announced ST. PAUL, Minn. <AP) State Rep. John Tomlinson, DFLSL Paul, has joined about a dozen persons seeking DFL endorsement in Minnesota's 4th District congressional race. Tomlinson, who announced his candidacy Monday for the seat being vacated by Rep. Joseph Karth, D-Minn., will be among those seeking endorsement at the district DFL convention in St. Paul Saturday. Tomlinson is a chemical engineer with The 3M Co. and served as Karth's campaign' coordinator in 1963. He also was DFL chairman in the 4th District from 1969 to 1972. He was an author of the controversial sports stadium bill during the 1976 legislative session. *Pelican Rapid; CMtinued from page 1 (1.90 per person for operating expenses, or about 57,500 a year. Each township and municipality would be allowed one representative on the board and an additional representative would be elected at-large. (Pernam Memorial Hospital formed a hospital district several months ago and BranrHi has had several meetings with that board regarding the mechanics of setting up a new district). Pelican Rapids has a physicians recruitment committee working to attract new doctors, as have several other cities wilhin the county. The city is also negotiating with several physician procurement firms, which charge about $5,000 for each doctor who starts a practice in a community. (The hang-up is that there is no guarantee that the physician will stay, says Brandli, and negotiations on that point are continuing with the firms). The financial report for the year, released last night, showed a net loss for the hospital and nursing home of 110,419. The hospital had a net gain of $15,623 and the nursing home a net loss of $26,1X4. Two incumbent directors, Ren Crews and Edward Boe, were re-elected and a third, Mrs. Bennett Scrum, was elected for a first term. (Russell Knutson declined to run for re-election). The hospital auxiliary reported it had secured much new equipment for the hospital and the nursing home, including a loudspeaker system which has been installed in the nursing home. was in the ground compared with the normal of 30, while 37 per cent of the barley acreage was planted compared with the normal of 16 per cent. One- fourth of the flax crop has been seeded—about twice the acreage for this time of spring. The sugar beet crop was 34 per cent planted-far ahead of the normal of 2 per cent. In normal years, no corn has been planted by late April but 4 per cent of the 1976 crop is in the ground. Some 44 per cent of the com ground has been prepared for planting compared with the normal of 18 per cent. About 22 per cent of the soybean acreage .is ready for planting—about triple the normal pace. Temperatures were cooler last week with readings near normal or a little below the average. The report said rainfall the past week ranged up to 1.4 inches in the southeastern part o'f the state. * School filings Continued from page 1 tinued to be a teacher on a volunteer basis. She has four sons, two attending St. fflaf and two in junior high. There is not a woman on the school board, she noted, and she feels she could represent women, who are half of the voters, on the school board. She also noted this is a positive time to run since incumbents Robert Dieseth and R. Frederic Theurer are not candidates. Glasoe said she has always been concerned about education and how it fits into the community. She has been a full-time volunteer and added that she has the time as well as experience to devote to being a school board member. Gust, 420 W. Vasa, has lived in Fergus Falls 35 years and is a graduate of Fergus Falls High School. He is also a graduate of the University of Minnesota where he majored in accounting and received a degree in 1953. For 20 years Gust operated a grain business at Foxhome. His two married daughters and a son at the University of Minnesota all graduated from Fergus Falls High School. "With declining enrollment and inflation there will be some difficult decisions and I would like to do what I can to continue asound fiscal system,' 1 he said. "We do have a quality system and with the cooperation of administration, [acuity, taxpayers and school board we probably can continue to improve the system further." Other candidates for the school board are Dennis Bogen, Larry Barber, Donald Haus, Robert Reed, Dolores Simdorn and Wayne Ronning. Filings close at 5 p.m. today. Continued from page 1 and generally meager benefits of covert action programs." Two Republicans, vice chairman John Tower of Texas and Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, refused to sign the committee report on the grounds that it was harmful to national security. The report "will cause severe embarrassment, if not grave harm, to the nation's foreign policy," Goldwater said. The report, which capped a 15-month investigation, concluded that: "Reliance on covert action has been excessive because it offers a secret shortcut around the democratic process." According to the report, the CIA has conducted 900 major covert operations around the world since 1961. Some of these operations have led to "questionable foreign involvements" while others have produced an unwanted "fallout" in the United States, the committee said. Of five major covert military operations studied, the committee said it could find only one that succeeded. One of the principal concerns expressed by the committee was "the domestic impact of foreign clandestine operations." The committee found that the CIA has: —Planted stories in foreign publications which have been unwittingly picked up and circulated by American newspapers; —Used American journalists and clergymen as secret agents abroad; —Been responsible for the publication of more than 1,000 books, many of which were reviewed and marketed in the United States; -Used thousands of U.S. scholars for intelligence and propaganda. The panel recommended placing strict controls on future use of covert operations but stopped short of recommending that they be banned. Instead, the panel urged that laws be passed barring the agency from using U.S. journalists and clergymen and from publishing articles or books that could be circulated in the United States. The panel stopped short of recommending a ban on the agency's secret relationships with scholars, saying instead that senior university officials should be informed of any covert contacts with professors. According to the report, the CIA operates a number of business enterprises with assets totaling $57 million for the purpose of providing cover and logistical support for its covert operations. Since 1974, the 16 largest CIA "proprietary" firms have earned $50 million in profits. The largest was a firm called Air America, which provided aircraft for CIA operations in Southeast Asia and at its peak had assets of $50 million and employed more than 8,000 people. The committee did not reveal how many CIA proprietaries exist but said the number has been reduced by 50 per cent since the peak years in the 1960s. The panel concluded that although the CIA's use of proprietaries raised "serious questions,"they have been operated "with a proper concern for legality, propriety and ethical standards." * Drugs Continued from pa gel toms Service to search persons suspected of smuggling drug money out of the country, in addition to the agency's current authority to search for contraband entering the United States. -Raising from 12,500 to $10,000 the value of property that can be seized, such as boats and aircraft used to smuggle drugs, and requiring privately- omed boats to report to Customs immediately upon arrival in port. Ford also called on Congress to ratify an existing treaty for international control of synthetic drugs, saying delay has become an has embarrassment to the United States and is making it difficult to get other countries to lighten controls on narcotics. Ford said he is setting up two new Cabinet committees — one for drug law enforcement, the other for drug abuse prevention, treatment and rehabilitation — headed respectively by the attorney general and the secretary of health, education and welfare. In addition, the President said he is calling on the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service to help develop a tax enforcement program aimed at high-level drug traffickers. "We know that many rf the biggest drug dealers do not pay income taxes on the enormous profits they make," Ford said. He urged a program to bring effective enforcement of tax laws against these violators. Ford said he was also intensifying diplomatic efforts with other governments to help fight the drug problem on an international level.

He said it is impossible to estimate accurately precise costs of the plan because they will depend on the strength of economic recovery, the rate of growth in the labor force and the specific design of the job creation programs. But he said even with the type of moderate economic recovery seen by the administration, two million to three million persons still would be jobless between now and 180. Fergis Fills (Hi.) feriil Tues.. April 27; 1976 18 Bilingual ballots cause difficulties Associated Frets Writer The federal law requiring bilingual ballots has been welcomed in many Spanish-speaking areas, but when it comes to printing ballots in Indian languages, many election officials are in a quandary. Chickahominy and Ankara are virtually extinct. Lumbee and Ojibway are unwritten languages. Cherokee, says one election official, "looks like a cross between hieroglyphics and Yiddish." And in Hayward, Wis., city clerk Roll Williamson said the Indians in surrounding Sawyer County "read English better than I do." Hayward ilself, population 1,600, has about six Indians but none speaks or writes an Indian language, Williamson said. Nevertheless, Hayward was one of about 500 towns, cities and counties which have been told to come up with bilingual ballots and election materials. The bilingual requirements are included in amendments to the Voting Rights Act. Congress passed the amendments last August in an attempt to make it easier for more Americans to vote. Last week, the Justice Department issued modifications of interim guidelines sent out last fall. The bilingual rules are to take effect after a 30-day period for public comment. Some areas, even though census figures say they should use bilingual ballots, may be exempted on a common sense basis. For instance: Charles City County in Virginia was on the Justice Department's list. More than 5 per cent of the county's 6,200 residents are Chickahominy Indians, so theoretically it is subject to the amendments. However, the Justice officials agreed with Virginia Atty. Gen. Andrew P. Miller that Chickahominy is a dead language, that all the Indians know English, that few if any know or read a word of Chickahominy, and that therefore bilingual ballots are not "sensible." Justice Department attorney David Burns said the department's list of bilingual ballot areas was compiled on the basis of Census Bureau reports Lucille Oliphant Head Designer, Q Assistant Manager FLORAL DESIGNS For All Occasions •Weddings •Birthdays • Anniversaries • Funerals "For Service That Is Personally Yours"...
