rails inn.) Journal Wed., Mar. 6, 1974 6 Farm exports become topic WASHINGTON (AP) Farm exports continue to provide the muscle for U.S. foreign trade, says the Agriculture Department. In January, farm exports were valued at more than $1.8 billion compared with agricultural imports of $787 million, the department said. The difference more than offset a deficit in export-import trade of nonfarm products, leaving a "surplus" of $182 million for the month, officials said. Selassie's role being questioned By ANDREW TORCHIA Associated Press Writer ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — Ethiopian observers predict the new constitution promised by Emperor Haile Selassie will drastically curtail the aged ruler's virtually unlimited authority. "After 44 years as emperor, Haile Selassie is finally saying, 'I've had enough.' He is ready to become a ceremonial figure," one intellectual commented. The frail, 81-year-old emperor will retain the royal trappings and near-worship of millions of peasants, but real power will shift to parliament, the cabinet and the courts, one top member of the civil service said. With his country beset by drought, starvation, inflation, unrest and mounting demands for democratic government, the monarch announced Tuesday night that he had ordered a constitutional conference convened to draw up a new charter for the nation. The emperor said the conference should clarify relations among the branches of government, streaniline the courts, make the prime minister more responsible to parliament and guarantee civil rights. He said nothing about the formation of political parties, which the most vocal dissidents have demanded. "It has always been our ardent wish that our beloved people should should have a peaceful transition from one era to another," the emperor said in a five-minute radio and television address. Haile Selassie said the new constitution should be completed in six months. But any changes appeared to be a year or more away since they must be approved by both houses of parliament at two separate sessions. There was no immediate reaction from the military, whose mutiny for higher pay last week forced the government to resign, emboldened students, intellectuals and labor leaders in Addis Ababa demanding eo- nomic and political reforms, and severely eroded the emperor's power. A general strike was still scheduled for Thursday by union leaders demanding a minimum wage, free schools and measures to increase employment. Bank post is okayed WASHINGTON (AP) - Asst. Secretary of State William J. Casey has received Senate Banking Committee approval to become president of the Export-Import Bank. The approval came Tuesday following a three-month delay. Reform bill debate set ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Majority Leader Nicholas Coleman says the Senate will debate the campaign reform bill Saturday. The bill includes a controversial $1 checkoff on state income tax returns to provide some public funding of election campaigns. It also sets spending limits for campaigns and requires disclosure of spending. The DFL-backed bill passed the House several weeks ago. If it passes the Senate, the final version will be written by a House-Senate conference committee. Gov. Wendell Anderson has called the bill one of the priority matters for the 1974 legislative session. Youth found not guilty Conference points up midwest oil problems ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)-An all-white jury Tuesday found a 16-year-old black youth innocent of third-degree murder in connection with the Dec. 7 shooting death of a Montgomery Ward & Co. security guard. The Jury of eight men and four women deliberated nearly 18 hours before returning the innocent verdict for Ellen Miller, 16, Minneapolis.. Miller was accused of participating in the robbery in which Mrs. Hazel Synstegard, 49, St. Paul, was shot and killed. One of the other two youths charged in the slaying is due to go on trial Thursday at 9:30 a.m. in Ramsey District Court. He is David Ford, 15, Min- neapolis. Trial date for the third youth, I^roy Bostic Jr., 17, Minneapolis, has not been set. Man drowns in river OWATONNA, Minn. (AP) Laverne H. Reiter, G6, Owatonna, apparently drowned Tuesday in the Straight River behind his home. Steele County authorities said Reiter was found by his son, Loren, lying face down in the water, shortly after he had gone for a walk about 5:30 p.m. The Steele County was to conduct an autopsy today to determine the cause of death. Delegates to the midwest conference on Canadian oil dependency meeting in Washington Monday are forming an energy task force which will have full recognition as advisors to the Federal Energy Office and U.S. Department of State during negotiations with Canada and in efforts to provide alternate sources to replace crude oil export reductions from Canada. U.S. Representative Bob Bergland (D-Minn.), chairman of the conference, will be temporary head of the task force. Explaining the unique problem of the six midwestern states from Montana to Michigan, Bergland said: "The Canadian government is working toward the same self- sufficiency in crude oil production as the United States. They now export, from their western provinces, about the same amount imported into the eastern provinces. Their obvious answer," he continued, "is an east-west pipeline to distribute their own oil to meet their own needs. "That's fine for Canada," Bergland added, "but where does it leave the midwest United States?" According to Bergland, in the states of Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, some 23 refiners depend on Canada for over 55 per cent of their crude supply. In Bergland's home state of Minnesota the problem is even more acute with 85 per cent of its refineries crude oil supply coming from Canada. Bergland said that the major purpose of the conference was accomplished "by gaining national attention to our special difficulties." Concluding, Bergland said the primary duty of the task force would be "to make sure that alternate sources of crude are provided midwest refiners at the same rate that Canadian supplies are withdrawn." In addition to the Congressional delegations and energy officials from the six midwestern states, participants in the conference included William Simon, head of the Federal Energy Office; Hufus Smith, Assistant Secretary of State and Jared Carter, Undersecretary of the Interior. Woman held in shooting ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A 51-year-old St. Paul man was found shot to death Tuesday in the basement of his home. The Ramsey County Coroner's office identified the victim as I-eon Lyons. He died of shotgun wounds. The St. Paul homicide division said a woman is being held for questioning. Easter Seal child visits White House WASHINGTON (AP) - Seven-year-old Tammy Bryant, the 1974 National Easter Seal child, gave Kirst Udy Pat Nixon an Easter Seal button and a key to Tammy's home town of Key West, Ha. Shy but smiling, Tammy posed for pictures with Mrs. Nixon in the White House on Tuesday. Tammy suffered brain damage in an automobile accident five years ago, but her mother, Mrs. Kenneth I. Bryant, said physical therapy and speech therapy have helped Tammy to have an almost normal life. Giveaway marred by a hijacking HILLSBORCUGH, Calif. (AP) — The waiting continues for the family of kidnaped Patricia Hearst after completion of a third free food giveaway for 30,000 persons was marred by a hijacking. News media reported that a truck carrying food for 4,000 persons was only a few minutes away from its Hunters Point distribution site in San Kran- cisco Tuesday when it was stopped by gunmen. They threatened the driver and left with the rig. The truck was found later, emptied of between $34,000 and $«0,00fl of meat, poultry and produce, according to reports. Police said no complaint of Ihe heist had been made and that orders from "high up" appeared to be out not to press the matter. Officials heading the food distribution would not confirm the theft. As the massive food handout l>roceeded quietly at 12 centers, Gov. Ronald Reagan asked for prayers for the safe and quick return of the 20-year-uld daughter of newspaper executive Randolph A. Hearst. "No one can fail to be moved by the anguish that this tragic Fergus Falls (Mn.) Journal Wed., Mar. 6, 1974 ] situation has meant for Miss Hearst and her family," Reagan said in Sacramento. FBI spokesmen in San Francisco consistently have said they don't know where Miss Hearst is being held. She was abducted 29 days ago, and a terrorist group calling itself the Symbionese Liberation Army claims it is holding her. A. Ludlow Kramer, the organizer of the distribution plan, said free food will be handed out twice weekly until $2 million made available for the project is exhausted in April or May. He said 75,000 persons received food in the first three food distributions. The friendly magicians at Red Owl can help you work wonders in your dining room and what's more—at pin-money prices.
