If it does, that won't settle the issue. The bill would have to go back to the House for renewed consideration there. · DURING THE last regular session, the House passed a similar bill, but it died as time ran out in the Senate. Under present plans, the House won't consider the bill again until the end of the recess. Senate President W. T. Brotherton Jr.. D-Kanawha. said Saturday that he remains philosophically opposed to dog racing. But he conceded" that it probably will win ultimte approval of the legislature. ; The bill, coming up for consideration Monday, will include a provision that dog racing tracks can be established only with the approval of voters in the county of its proposed location. A Senate battle is expected on an amendment to be offered by Sen. William Gates. D-Hampshire. This amendment would make it mandatory for about 1,000 .employes of four existing horse race tracks to receive pensions. Sen. Robert Steptoe, D-Berkeley. will oppose the amendment on the grounds that it is unconstitutional. He relies on a 1949 Supreme Court case which decided that apple tax money couldn't be collected for a private purpose. STEPTOE SAID track managers already have agreed by collective bargaining methods to provide a retirement plan for the employes. The Berkeley senator, who formerly opposed the dog racing legislation, has decided to support it because of the benefits it would bring to the horse race track employes. Also, he feels that provisions in the bill will prevent dog racing from coming to the Eastern Panhandle. The bill says that no dog race track can be established within 55 air miles of an existing horse race track. There are two horse race tracks at CharlesTown. By Fred S. Hoffman WASHINGTON lAP) -- Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger said Saturday the Central Intellignce Agency's sources of information abroad "have been dramatically reduced" as a result of leaks from congressional investigating committees. Schlesinger. who formerly headed the CIA, was asked by Sen. James Buckley. RNY.. in a recorded television interview whether "We have reason to f e a r . . . that the willingness of foreign governments to work with us is being undercut" because of CIA secrets made public. "1 think we have more than reason to fear." Schlesinger replied. "I think that we recognize that the sources of information coming into the CIA have been dramatically reduced in both liaison relationships and in relation to the willingness of information coming re- latinships and in relation to the willingness of foreigners to work with our intelligence people and that is an inevitable effect of these kinds of revelations." SCHLESINGER DISMISSED as "a dra matic oversimplification" the notion that the only kind of intelligence the United States needs is that which is provided by spy satellites. "Photographs, of couse. can provide you with indications with respect to the growth of certain types of capabilities, but one must recognize that nobody has ever been able to photograph intentions," Schlesinger said. "The only way we are ever able to get at intentions is through normal human intelligence and. in addition to that, here are various technical parameters that one can never learn through photographs. "So all of the elements of the intelligence community must be effective in the U.S is to have eyes and ears in what continues to be a relatively dangerous world." Schlesinger said. The defense chief said that, in his opinion, the would is in a more dangerous state than it was a year ago. "From one end of the Mediterranean to the other end of the Mediterranean there are growing problems," he said. "There is also the aftermath of what one must recognize to be an American debacle in Southeast Asia." country's NATO allies against charges by critics that those countries are not doing enough, in relation to U.S. contributions to the North Atlantic alliance. Collectively. Schlesinger said. Western European nations in the alliance keep about 2.5 million men under arms while the United States has almost 300.000 men in Europe. "The European states are relatively small or medium-sized states that are up against a superpower." Schlesinger said. "One must recognize that these states cannot individually and. at the present time, collectively, stand up against the Soviet Union without the backbone that is represented by another superpower." He insisted that the presence of U.S. forces in Europe "is indispensible" and that "a free Western Europe is critical from the standpoint of the well-being of the United States." been no clues thus far to indicate either an abduction or a murder took place. Bloomfield Hills police said. Responding to an anonymous phone tip. police searched a cornfield in Michigan's Irish Hills, more than 100 miles west of this Detroit suburb where Hoffa lives, but found no trace of Hoffa. Police said they dug in some spots that appeared suspicious, but turned up no clues. Employes of Airport Service Lines, a small business where Hoffa has a financial interest, told the family Hoffa dropped by Wednesday and mentioned who he was going to meet. But they said they didn't recall the names. The family brought in physicians to hypnotize the employes, and the source told The Associated Press that under hypnosis, thev remembered. 29 Chessie Cars Derail continued "He did quite well. He was the reserve champion of the Kanawha Valley." The Fayetle County woman said she had been en route to a horse show in Boone County. "1 was hoping today that he would qualify for the state championship," she said, "but it's too late now." The Marmet Fire Department Rescue Squad used its "jaws of life" hydraulic jack to free a second show horse trapped in the trailer. "The Marmet Fire Department and city police were really great," she said. "They were working on the horse like he was a person." Her second horse suffered only superficial cuts and bruises. State police Saturday night were routing motorists around the blocked road by use of detours at Hernshaw and Chesapeake. The Hernshaw traffic was diverted through Kanawha State Forest to Loudendale and into Charleston. The detour near Chesapeake led motorists out Winil'rede Hollow to Joes Creek in Boone County. Harrison Man Dies in Fire CLARKSBURG. W.Va. ( A P ) - A Harrison County man died Saturday of smoke inhalation when his single-story home was destroyed by fire, officials said. The victim was identified as Duke Stewart. 48, of Clarksburg. The victim's wife and three children escaped without injury. Stewart's body was found pinned beneath a portion of a crumbled brick chim- ··Police now know who Jimmy was going to meet." Wednesday afternoon outside the Machus Red Fox. a fashionable Bloomfield Hills restaurant, the source said. Friday. Hoffa's daughter. Barbara Crancer! said -investigators" believe two associates of "Tony Jack" Giacalone. may have taken her father hostage. James P. Hoffa said Saturday. "All we have left is hope." He said the family feels helpless. * * * THE TEAMSTERS union has offered a $25.000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons responsible for Hoffa's mysterious disappearance. Hoffa was internatonal president of the Teamsters union from 1957 to 1967 when he went to jail for mail fraud and jury tampering. He is barred from participating in union activities until 1980 under the terms of a clemency order which brought his release from prison in 1971. The source said Giaralone met with Hoffa at Hoffa's Lake Orion home two weeks ago. and there had been "no argument, no problems." Hoffa's son told police he arranged to rendezvous secretly with Giacalone Friday on a rural road to discuss Hoffa's disappearance, but that Giacalone failed to show. Giacalone. identified by Detroit's police chief in 1963 U.S. Senate testimony as a "big man" in the Detroit Mafia, has known Hoffa for years. Hoffa's son said. Young Hoffa said Friday that "union politics have to be investigateed" as a reason for his father's disappearance. Hoffa had said he would try to recapture the Teamsters presidency from his successor and now bitter rival, Frank Fitzsimmons. The Chicago Sun-Times in a story for Sunday, quoted a source as saying Hoffa was abducted because he was considered unstable and a threat to the freedom of his associates "in the Teamsters union and their sponsors in organized crime." SCHLESINGER DEFENDED t h i s Ford SAVE DURING OUR SEMIANNUAL SALES LEE DICKiNSON Battles controls which hold a $5.25 a barrel ceiling on two-thirds of domestic production. The White House said Ford would veto . this bill when it gets to him. But Democrats insisted they would have a good chance to override when Congress returns to work Sept. 3. Without the controls, the price of this so-called old oil could shoot up to about $13 a barrel. This could boost gasoline prices 7 cents a gallon. . Ford's energy program is based on a graduated series of price increases to force cuts in consumption and thus a reduction in the nation's dependence on for- 'eign oil. these would be accomplished by phased decontrol of old oil. by tariffs which the President already has imposed, and by excise taxes. THE DEMOCRATS have worried that these price boosts, on top of those which followed the oil embargo in 1973. were precisely the wrong medicine at a time of recession. They have pushed for conservation measures." mostly long-range: measures to raise energy production; and conversions from fuels in short supply to those which are abundant such as coal. The administration suffered a sharp foreign policy defeat as the Congress consistently refused to lift the ban on arms for Turkey, originally imposed last year. It also wa? dealt a setback on defense policy as the Senate rejected on Friday a compromise $31.2 billion weapons authorization bill which essentially gave the President what he wanted in this field. The Senate spent a futile month in bitter debate over the New Hampshire Senate election contest. Democrats finally had to bow to Republicans and send this back for z new election. HOUSE DEMOCRATS adopted a series of reform measure? designed to curtail powers of committee chairmen and grant more authority to the caucus of all Democratic members. In the final week before the recess, the legislator? voted themselves a pay raise HERE IS the status of legislation proposed by Gov. Moore in convening the special legislative session Tuesday: Supplemental highway appropriation of $27 million: Trimmed to $14.4 million and passed by the House: awaiting Senate passage. »· Forty-six supplemental appropriation bills for various state agencies: House Finance Committee has held hearings on three of the bills, but none reported to the floor. · Distribution of proceeds from a new tax on coal: no action. »· State fiscal assistance program: no action. »· Raising the ceiling on mortgage rates: no action. »· Abolition of the consumers sales tax on food: the House rejected an attempt to bring the bill to the floor for a vote. Teacher and school service personnel salary hikes: no action. »· Directing the Board of Regents to assume control of the Greenbrier School of Osteopathic Medicine: no action. Revising the state's pension laws to prohibit convicted felons from receiving such benefits: the House and Senate approved a resolution authorizing a study by an interim committee. · Judicial reorganization: no action. + Dog and horse racing: no action. »· Appropriation of revenue sharing funds: no action. A $1.8 million appropriation for the WVU School of Medicine's Charleston division: no action. · Supplementary appropriation for the Public Service Commission: no action. *· Supplementary appropriation for the Civil Service System: no action. ·· Supplementary appropriation to fund the West Virginia Railroad Maintenance Authority: no action. · Authorize the Board of Regents to issue bonds for improvements at Fairmont State College: no action. »- Appropriation of funds for the National Track and Field Hall of Fame: no action. Appropriation of $4 million to replace the Elmore Bridge in Wyoming County: no action. does nothing to increase conservation." Ford wants to gradually remove controls over 36 months on oil produced from wells drilled before 1972. That amounts to 60 per cent of all U.S.-produced oil. Ford appeared upbeat when asked about chances for a Middle East settlement. "1 am more optimistic than 1 was a few days ago.," he said. The only change in the situation over the last few days was a meeting between U.S. Ambassador Hermann Eilts and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat Eilts will meet the President today in Yugoslavia to discuss the situation. Regarding strategic arms limitation, the President wouldn't give reporters any details. He explained that areas substan- tally agreed on. however, were being referred to American and Soviet experts on the SALT teams in Geneva to work out technical details. It was learned from other sources that most of the progress came on verification procedures for enforcing compliance of any treaty. WHITE AND COLOR for the first time since The raise will be equivalent to the cost- of -living boost given each year to all fe der- al employes. The bill covered federal executives and judges, a? well a? senators and House members. The legislators were so preoccupied with immediate problems in the first seven months of the session that no attention could be given to long-range program? Democratic leaders had hoped to at least make a start on national health insurance and welfare reform in 1975. But it Royal American Shows Officers Face Charges EDMONTON. Canada ( A P ) - Two executives of Royal American Shows Inc.. who face charges of corrupting a city official pleaded innocent here Saturday. Trial for Royal American president Carl Sedlmayr Jr.. 56. and concessions superintendent. Lester Demay. 58. was set for Nov. 17. Both were released on bail. A police warrant remained out for the arrest of the show's concession manager. Peter Andres. The charges allege that for the last 18 years the three midway executives offered a city official "rewards, advantages or benefits of goods and money as consideration for showing favor to Royal Ameri- surance and welfare reform in I97a. But it can Showj . , n( , ^ re]aljon ^ affairs appeare* unlikely that anything wou dfee of hu?jness of 0]e dty of ^ ^ ··» done ontnese before 1976 at the earliest. - .». IN FACT, work went so well and the U.S. and Soviet delegations were in such agreement that very little further work is necessary, a U.S. official said. That leaves the new American air-to- surface Cruise missile and a new Russian bomber, the Backfire, as the remaining crucial issues. Ford said Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko will meet once or twice in the near future to set up a final agreement. Ford also said the American people will support a SALT agreement if it is "a responsible and safe agreement. 1 assure you that we won't give more than we get." When asked if Brezhnev would be in Washington this fall, the President answered the plans are on track and "our plans are no different for the schedule than before." He said Brezhnev, who has been reported ill by some foreign newspapers, appears physically better -- "he acted strong." On other matters, the President made these points: + The Turkish closing of Amerian bases "makes it more difficult" to protect the national security. "I believe the sale of 10 million tons" of grain to the Soviet Union "is good for the farmer" and won't increase food prices for the consumer. "I will personally keep my fingers" on any move to sell com- moditie's that would hurt the consumer. Ford explained that all indications now point to "a bountiful harvest" from which there will be enough to sell to the Russians and still leave enough in the United States to keep prices from rising. · "I am absolutely confident and totally- convinced that . . . Europe and the world are all better off" because of the agreement signed in Helsinki Friday concerning European security. »· The "past performance as well as the behavior of the past couple of days" have demonstrated the Russians are interested in peace and should support further detente, i In other matters. Ford and Japanese Prime Minister Takeo Miki meet this week for an assessment of East Asia after the Indochina war. According to U.S. officials, the meeting probably will be beyond routine statements of mutual interest in preserving an alliance which, despite occasional strains, has thrived over the past 30 years. MiKi arrived in Seattle on Saturdavssmd was scheduled to fly to Washington to|ay.
