8\ --July 4, 1976 Sunday Gaxette-Mail Charlesfcn, Wesl Virginia Floods. . . From Wire Servicet Rainy JOPLIN, Mo.-Up to 12 inches of rain hit parts of Kansas and Missouri on Saturday, forcing evacuation of residents from low-lying areas and blocking highways. No fatalities were reported, but the Barton County sheriff's office at Lamar, Mo., reported six or seven persons were rescued after high water from Muddy Creek swept their car off U.S. 160 just east of Lamar. Emergency crews evacuated up to 100 residents from their homes in two sections of Joplin, along Spring River in the northeast part of town and Shoal Creek on the south. The National Weather Service said 12V 2 inches of rain was measured at Cherryvale in southeast Kansas in the 24 hours ended at 7 a.m., on top of almost two inches in the preceding 24 hours. Mexico MEXICO CITY-Government oficials expect more than half of Mexico's 26 million registered voters to take part Sunday in an election in which Jose Lopez Portillo is certain to be elected president. Voters also will select 196 federal representatives and 64 senators to fill the Mexican legislature. Observers predict Lopez Portillo, a 56-year-old relative newcomer to national politics, will get 90 per cent or more of the presidential vote. Lopez Portillo is the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary party, which has ruled Mexico for more than half a century and has never lost a presidential election. He also is supported by two of Mexico's three registered opposition parties. The largest of them, the National Action party-did not field a candidate for the first time in 30 years because of internal squabbling. FBI NEW YORK--In an unusually sharp attack against the Federal Bureau of Investigation by a high government law enforcement official, David G. Trager. the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York, has described the FBI as "suffering from arteriosclerosis" and of being "out of step" with the major goals of federal prosecutors. "Most of the cases they (the FBI) bring to us are insignificant." Trager said. "They are wasting resources on trivia, and I don't think they have the ability or the people to do the job in the areas we consider priorities--official corruption and white-collar crime." "The whole organization is geared up for gang-buster crime." Trager said. "It's a hangover from the Hoover days, a mentality of the 1920s and 1930s, and the only things they are capable of investigating are bank robberies, kidnapings and interstate thefts. That may have been important but they refuse to recognize that other things are more important today." J. Wallace LaPrade, an assistant FBI director and the head of the bureau's New York office, declined to reply directly to Trager's charges. Pensions NEW YORK--The pension revision law enacted last week in a round of legislative compromise and promises of savings actually will increase New York City's budget expenses and cut into the hopes of attrition in jobs that underlie its austerity plan, the city actuary cautioned Saturday. The ironic effect of this law was described by Jonathan Schwartz, the city actuary who oversees the city's pension system, as one of a number of negative aspects" that make the new law an "absolute monstrosity." "I kept calling up there to warn them, but no one in Albany seemed interested in hearing from a pension specialist when they were trying to write a pension law." Schwartz said. The law is a compromise typical of the politically divided legislature's nature: a three-tiered system that includes some caveats, one of which will have a negative effect on the city budget, at least for the next several years, in Schwartz' view. · . . to Trivia Quantity Rights Reserved.
