Program to open farmlands y^ ATHER Steel operations reviewed to anglers, hunters extended By DON KENDALL AP Fun Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department plans to extend for another year a pilot program started in 1972 to pay fanners for letting the public hunt, fish and hike on their land. But the 1974 program will continue to be limited in scope, meaning that it will be another year at least before any serious move is made to make it a nationwide recreation project. "Further testing is needed to Contract offer is rejected ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Striking mechanics and body repairmen of St. Paul area auto dealers rejected a contract offer Thursday night. The service departments of 30 auto dealerships have been closed since the walkout began seven weeks ago. A federal mediator, Earl Smith, said body repairmen and mechanics came within 60 votes of ending their walkout, but they apparently want more money to return to work. The strike by about 800 mechanics and repairmen began April 2. The business agent for the International Association of Machinists District 77, Les Brown, said the contract offer did not include a cost of living increase that was obtained by union workers from Minneapolis auto dealers. He also said an incentive offer was inadequate. A spokesman for the St. Paul Auto Dealers Association, attorney Robert Fenlon, said that the body shop men and mechanics were offered a 12 per cent raise for the first year of the contract and an incentive pay provision. Representatives of the union and the dealers met after the vote with the federal mediator, but there was no change in the stands taken by the two sides. No further negotiations were scheduled. evaluate the program's feasibility," Undersecretary of Agriculture J. Phil Campbell said Friday in announcing the 1974 plan.' The public access program will be available in 10 states, the same number as earlier. Those include Alabama, Iowa, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. Officials said three — Alabama, New York and Ohio — are new additions to the program, replacing Colorado, Indiana and Ixniisiana. Only certain counties in each state are eligible for participation. Those will be announced later. Besides needing to be in a designated county, a farmer to be eligible for recreation payments must have a cotton, feed grain or wheat allotment, the department said. In 1972, according to officials, 3,793 farms were signed up for hunting. Those included 1.3 million acres, for which USDA paid $1.4 million to operators in exchange for securing public access privileges. Another 241 farms were opened to public fishing. Those Quie seeks end to credit restrictions WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Albert H. Quie, R-Minn., has introduced legislation aimed at eliminating barriers of sex or marital status for individuals seeking credit. In a statement issued from his Washington office today, Quie said his asure would require financial institutions to make credit available to "all credit-worthy customers without regard to sex or marital status." He said a study by the National Commission on Consumer Finance has shown that married, widowed, single, divorced and separated women are the most common victims of credit discrimination. The bill was referred to the House Banking and Currency Committee. Rain, wind, half hit many areas included 365 lakes, ponds and other fishing sites. Payments totaled $28,400 in 1972. Hiking entry was extended on 34 farms, with payments of $6,592. l^ast year, the department said, hunters roamed 1.8 million acres on 5,027 farms at a government cost of $1.4 million. Fishing rights were obtained on 507 farms, including 835 sites, at a cost of $65,800; and hiking on only six farms at a cost of $2,513. In all last year, an estimated 1,126,000 hunters, fishermen and hikers availed themselves of the open access to participating farms in 150 designated counties. WASHINGTON (AP) - Surveys by the Agriculture Department indicate most farmers are having an easier time getting fuel but are having to pay a lot more for it than they did last summer. A report on the farm energy situation says gasoline and diesel supplies are "inadequate" in at least 95 per cent of the nation's agricultural counties. But gasoline prices by May 17 were up 31 per cent from last Nov. 1, and diesel was up 41 per cent from then, the report said. Convicted doctor has remarried EL DORADO SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) — Dr. R. Bernard Finch has married a psychiatric social worker whom friends say he met while he was serving a prison term for the murder of his wife. A friend, the Rev. William Krudwig, said Friday that Finch, 56, married Elizabeth Kehoe, 50, in a private ceremony at his home here on Thursday. Bob Jackson, director of the Crawford County Mental Health Center, which employs the bride, said the couple met while she was doing social work at a California prison. Finch gained widespread attention when he and Carole Tregoff, an attractive receptionist at his West Covina, Calif., hospital, were sentenced to life prison terms in 1961 for the slaying of Finch's wife in 1959 four months after she had filed for divorce. The two were later paroled. Finch moved here and Miss Tregoff changed her name and reportedly is living in Southern California.

Hailstones larger than baseballs pounded northwestern Texas late Friday as severe thunderstorms occurred through much of the Plains. Tornadoes were sighted near Amarillo and Lubbock, Tex., and some streets in Amarillo were flooded. There were no reports of injuries. Hail the "size of golfballs fell in or near the Nebraska towns of Pleasanton, Franklin and Campbell, accompanied by wind gusts of 50 miles per hour at Pleasanton. Bladen, Neb., was drenched by nearly 2 inches of rain in 45 minutes, and Dodge City, Kan., was soaked with a similar downpour. Thunderstorms crackled over widely scattered areas of the Atlantic Coast through Friday, and a tornado was sighted over Long Island, N.Y. Showers were sprinkled parts of the northern Rockies and northern Pacific Coast, and clouds covered much of the Great Lakes region. Fair skies and seasonable temperatures favored most of the nation outside the storm areas. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 40 at Duluth, Minn., and Grand Forks, N.D., to 81 at Yuma, Ariz.

Cort, chairman of Bethlehem Steel and the institute, will be one in which demand for the product might be unprecedented domestically. Cort called current depreciation regulations on plant and equipment "a sick joke." Tax provisions aren't doing the job of helping the industry raise capital, he said. And without capital the industry clearly cannot expand. What then? "If we cannot find a way to provide capacity to meet foreseeable domestic demand, if we don't act on it, mark my words, there'll be irresistible pressure for the government to step in and take over," he said. Not very long ago such cries would be ignored or considered part of steel's paranoia, or at best, steel's way of obtaining its demands. But not now. In recent months there seems to be a growing suspicion that pressure groups and government, by ignoring the dollar and cents realities of business, can regulate it into a corner from where there is no escape except into the arms of government. The financial predicament of Consolidated Edison, which had to seek state assistance, is cited as an example. U.S. overseas air carriers insist they cannot function profitably without regulatory changes. The Perm Central railroad is bankrupt. The steel industry now maintains that without a more considerate role by government and environmentalists it will be unable to operate profitably enough to attract capital to meet its obligations, including environmental ones. Edgar Speer, U.S. Steel chairman, stated his opinion with the blunt, threatening quality that has often cost the industry popular support: "Unless present environmental laws are revised, the steel industry may be headed for 'an environmental calamity' which would have grave repercussions for the nation's economy." He suggested that this national standard "may well be unnecessary ... and is certainly going to cost the American public dearly if the situation isn't changed." Despite big returns in 1973, many steel companies still haven't achieved the level of profitability they had in 19571959. Immigration sidetracked MOSCOW (AP) - Ballet dancer Valery Panov's struggle to immigrate to Israel appears to be temporarily sidetracked. Panov says his wife is pregnant. "I cannot leave her, least of all now," Panov said Friday. Ferjis Falls (Mi.) J«riil Sat., May 25,1974 fi Buddhists making trip OTTER ROCK, Ore. (AP) A young American Buddhist monk is journeying up the Pacific Coast, dropping to his knees every third step and touching his forehead to the ground in a bow. Behind trudges a second monk carrying a heavy pack and pulling a cart loaded with equipment. He doesn't bow, but he has pledged to support the other on a 1,200-mile trip from San Francisco to Marblemount, Wash. The Buddhists hope to set up a monastary at Marblemount on 40 donated acres. They left San Francisco last Oct. 14 and hope to reach Marblemount by late summer. They cover about six miles a day. The monk who bows is Heng Ju, formerly Tim Testu of Seattle. He says the trip to Marblemount was inspired by Shu Yun, a monk who bowed his way across China in a 6,000- mile, three-year pilgrimage at the turn of the century. Heng Ju, 29, says the bowing is an expression of humility and that its repetitiveness helps develop the single-niindedness that is important to his religion.
