This hybrid motorcycle with protective windshield is made by a Japanese firm and was shown recently in London. A comparatively light vote in the Carroll city election was indicated in the first three hours of balloting under a bright autumn sky Tuesday. The vote total in the four Carroll polling places was slightly ahead of the pace at the same time two years ago. the count at 11 a.m. Tuesday showed 20? ballots cast compared with 188 during the same time period in 1965. A three-man race for the two councilman-at-large seats was expected to bring a sharp upturn in the Carroll voting before the polls close tonight at 8 p.m. Incumbent 1 councilman-at- large Dr. H. K. Richardson is contesting for election with candidates Lewis S. Voyles and Kenneth D. Ebner. Mayor William S. Earner is unopposed for reelection. Two new candidates for council, Tom Evans, first ward, and Lou Galetich, fourth ward, are unopposed as incumbents James Furey hardt did not and Joe Mein- seek reelection. Incumbents George Kitt, third ward, and Dr. L. B. Westendorf, second ward, are unopposed. William Stickrod is un- cpposed for a term on the park commission to fill the seat be- ing vacated by Joe P. Frank who did not file for reelection. Election observers at midday doubted the 1967 vote would threaten the record turn-out of 2,066 set here in 1961. In that hotly-contested election a total of 455 ballots were cast in the first two and one-half hours of voting. An exceptionally small turn-out was recorded in 1963 when a total of 508 ballots were cast. The 1965 vote, which is expected to be exceeded this year, came to 965. In the first three hours here Tuesday, the first ward had 50 voters compared with 95 two years ago, the second ward had 38 compared with 34, the third ward recorded 54 compared with 29, and the fourth ward registered 65 compared with 30 two years ago.

Battles Rage in Highlands, Along Coast SAIGON (AP) - Heavy fighting was reported today in South Vietnam's jungled central highlands and along the coastal lowlands. It could signal the start of new dry season offensives by the Communists in the two areas. Troops of South Korea's White Horse Division reported killing 113 North Vietnamese in fighting Monday and today near the division base headquarters in the lowlands 205 miles notheast of Saigon. Korean casualties were reported light. In a series of sharp clashes in the central highlands 300 miles north of Saigon, 20 American paratroopers and 18 North Vietnamese troops were killed. The units of the U.S. 173rd Airborne Brigade also reported 27 men wounded.

"I was holding his hand when le went. He didn't have no (sic) last words. His eyes were, open to the last—he wasn't sleeping," said Large. With Large at the side of the tiospital-type bed in Garner's bedroom at the last were a doctor, Garner's son Tully and a granddaughter. Dr. Sterling Fly, the physician, who had cared for Garner for several years, said his patient suffered a coronary occlusion just after 1 a.m., followed by hard breathing and a coma- like state. Garner's last years were quiet ones, whiled away in the tending of his pecan trees and CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — The Surveyor 6 spacecraft raced today toward an intended soft-landing in a rugged area almost smack in the middle of the moon's visible face. Its planned touchdown is in the Sinus Medii Central Bay, considered a prime astronaut landing site despite its roughness. Surveyor 6 carried a television camera and a small automatic chemistry set to analyze the lunar soil. The 2,223-pound mechanical marvel soared into space from Cape Kennedy at 2:39 a.m. EST today aboard an Atlas- Centaur rocket. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration reported early phases i>f the flight were near-perfect as Surveyor 6 started its 65-hour, 231,416-mile journey, its sensors locked on the sun for guidance. Launch officials reported tracking data showed the rocket had been very accurate in sending the spider-shaped craft into space and that only a minor firing of its midcourse motor later MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviet Union showed off six new weapons today, including a huge intercontinental ballistic missile, and also hauled an orbital missile through Red Square on the 50th anniversary of shevik Revolution. the Bol- The red-nosed new intercontinental missile, about Surveyor See Page 13 Garner See Page 12 John Nance Garber Audubon Man Slain in a Holdup MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — An Audubon, Iowa, man who moved to Minneapolis Sunday to study broadcasting, was shot and killed Monday night by one of three gunmen who held up a grocery store here. The dead man was identified as Richard W. Campbell, 22, who had attended his first classes Monday at the Brown Institute of Broadcasting and Electronics. . Campbell was shot in the face by the bandit while two other robbers were holding up a clerk and woman customer, police said. The trio fled with an estimated $100 and checks. Campbell was in the rear of the store shopping when one of the bandits approached him and fired. Police said they were unable to learn what caused the robber to shoot. Try to Stem Outflow of Iowa Medics (By Iowa Daily Press Assn.) DES MOINES — There has become increasing concern, on the part of legislators and others, about the number of medical students from the University of Iowa who leave the state upon graduation. More than one hundred of the 114 June graduates from the U n i v e r s i t y of Iowa's school of medicine have gone outside the state t* intern. The question being asked in medical circles and elsewhere is how many will return to Iowa to practice? In the past decade there also has become a growing concern about the loss of the general practitioner. Mindful of what has been happening, the 1967 legislature establishel a $200,000 loan fund for m e d i c a 1 and osteopathic students. The loan program is being administered by the state higher education facilities commission. Dr. W. L. Roy Wellborne, director of the commission, says the program has a dual purpose. "First, it was intended to help stem the tide of Iowa-educated doctors who go elsewhere to practice. Second, the loans are meant to encourage young doctors to enter general practice." The commission is now able to offer, financial help for the second term of the current academic year to Iowa medical and osteopathic students. Applicants for loans are required to sign an agreement to practice general medicine in Iowa for at least five years af- 100 feet long, came just before a missile shown on May Day 1965 that. has been claimed capable of striking from orbit. Another new missile, with two stages hooked together, appeared to have a range between 100 and 1,000 miles, and a new tactical missile was shown with a probable striking distance of 100-200 miles. The Soviet navy showed a smooth, solid-looking missile with a blunt nose that probably is designed for launching underwater. Long silver antiaircraft missiles appeared on a tracked carrier as a new weapon. Official commentaries, apparently referring to a nuclear-headed missile shown in earlier parades, claimed for it ability to knock down clusters of enemy planes. The sixth new item in the rumble of weapons through Red Square was an armored reconnaissance vehicle with a gun and a small antitank missile mounted on it. Soviet commentators used the word "new" only once, saying a three-stage intercontinental rocket was powered by a "new, highly efficient type of propellant." The Tass account said these rockets "need little time to be readied for firing and can be launched both from silos and other launching ramps." The official accounts threw no light on whether the Soviet Union is testing an orbital bomb system, as U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara said Friday it is. During the two and a half years since the unveiling of the orbital rocket, there has been no mention here of its being tried out in any way. Official accounts of the parade today reported the boast that the mamoth Soviet rockets—the biggest is about 115 feet long — "can deliver nuclear warheads of tremendous power." It was also claimed that "no other army in the world has such warheads." Moscow television's commentator called attention to "an unusual special warhead" on one rocket which he said could destroy a large group of enemy planes in the air at a great dis- —NEA Radio-Telephoto Jungle Party Birthday party in the jungle is celebrated by Pfc.

(AP) — Egypt asked today for >an urgent meeting of the U.N.

Kante of Mali, council president this month, immediately began consultations on the time of the meeting. The request was taken as a sign of Arab opposition to a new draft resolution circulated by the United States, in an attempt to break the deadlock over a Middle East settlement. The Soviet Union had said Monday it could not support the proposal JUNK MAIL— DES MOINES (AP) The names and addresses of more than one million lowans are supplied free to R. L.

BACK ON TRACK- DBS MOINES (AP) - Atty. Gen. Richard Turner said Tuesday the Iowa Tax Commission got back on the straight-and- narrow with its proposed rule making the new three per cent service tax apply to new construction.' In an advisory opinion, Turner noted he had disapproved in September the rule adopted by the commission limiting' the tax to repairs and modifications of existing biddings and excluding new construction. He said one of several rea- Medics See Page 12 sons for that opinion was, that certain repairs were specifically enumearted elsewhere by the new law, and this language would have been rendered superfluous by the commission's original interpretation.

IPS Responds to Emergency at Joliet 9 Illinois The Iowa Public Service company plants in Carroll were called on Monday to provide power for an Illinois area where a generator had broken down. H. C. Schogren, southern district manager, said both the steam and diesel units here were put into operation about 9 a.m. and generated approximately 7,500 kilowaats of power for the Iowa pool, from which the Illinois area drew. Although the emergency was over by noon Monday, IPS was still providing quite a 1 i 111 e power for 'the Illinois sector Tuesday, Mr. Schogren said. The Commonwealth-Edison Co. called on the Iowa pool after it lost a 600,000 KW generator at Joliet, 111. IPS was one of the Iowa companies responding to the call to replace the lost generating capacity. The Weather IOWA FORECAST Partly cloudy northeast generally fair west and south through Wednesday.

The board made plans to attend the Iowa School Boards Association convention in Des Moines, Nov. 16 and 17. The next meeting of the board will be Dec. 12. War, Race Church-State Voting Issues WASHINGTON (AP) —Morning hours passed without incident today in the two states electing governors and the many cities choosing mayors after campaigns that were often emotion-packed over race and Vietnam war issues. Voting was brisk under sunny skies in tensed Gary, Ind. where a Democratic Negro law yer contested with a Republican white businessman for mayor. National Guardsmen drilled in nearby Valparaiso, ready to speed to Gary if disorders developed. In Cleveland, Ohio, where Negro was also the Democrat! nominee for mayor, there was a morning snow squall, but voting nevertheless was heavy. An early turnout by housewives raised prospects for a heavy vote in the Boston race for mayor between a woman lawyer, best known for opposing busing of Negro children to white schools, and the secretary of state. The weather was clear and crisp. Gary's battle for mayor between Negro Democrat Richard B. Hatcher and white Republican Joseph Radigan was accompanied by racial tensions that focused national attention on the Indiana steel city. Election-eve court decisions were necessary to clear the way for the Gary election and for the use of National Guardsmen if necessary to insure peaceful balloting. Vietnam referenda are on the ballot in San Francisco and Cambridge, Mass., while New Yorkers vote on a $2.5 billion transportation bond issue and a proposed new state constitution that would repeal a ban on public aid to private and parochial schools. Legislatures are being chosen in New Jersey, Virginia and Mississippi. Gov. Roger D. Branigan of Indiana ordered National ing places included Mrs. Edwin Buchmann for first ward voting in the Methodist Church, Paul Ewing for the second ward balloting in the Lutheran Church, Henry Heman for the third ward voting in the Iowa Public Service Company business office, and Mrs. Anna Steffes for the fourth ward in Holy Spirit Auditorium. Interest was expected to be heightened by contests in Lake City, Glidden, Lanesboro, Scranton, Auburn, Halbur, Coon Rapids, Arcadia, Bayard and Audubon. There was no contest slated in Manning, but citizens will vote on a low rent housing pro- ect. The special issue involves a proposal for a low-rent hous- ng agency for elderly people of imited income. A 50 per cent majority vote will be necessary to enable the Manning city council to create the agency. The proposed Manning project would be financed with federal funds and would be Guardsmen to the Gary area Elections ...

Drug Officials Urge Eradication of Hemp Weather A Year Ago— A trace of rain fell in the 24- hour period prior to 7 a.m. a year ago today. The mercury rose to a high of 64; the low for the day was 25 degrees. \ Nov. 7, 1966 755 IOWA TRAFFIC DEATHS By The Associated Press Nov. 7, 1967 ...708 Nov. 7, 1966 777 By the State Safety Deparment Nov. 7, 1967 683 By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Daily Press Assn. Writer) DES MOINES — About six years ago a group of law enforcement officers, meeting at Iowa City, received quite a shock. The meeting had been called to discuss narcotics and the speaker was none other than Harry Anslinger, then commissioner of the U.S. Bureau of Narcotics. Anslinger, so the story goes, threw a weed on the table and asked how many of those present could identify it. Much to the chargin of the peace officers there, only a handful could identify it. You've probably guessed by now, it was Indian hemp or marijuana which is growing wild in Iowa. Anslinger had picked it up along the roadside near Iowa City. Last week Ernest Gentry, assistant commissioner of the U.S. Narcotics Bureau was in Des Moines along with Gene Haislip, attorney-adviser for the bureau. When asked about the Indian hemp which is growing wild in Iowa, Gentry said increasing attention is being given to people trying to grow marijuana or to harvest it themselves. Haislip said the Indian hemp which is growing in Iowa, and has been publicized nationally, "is not a significant problem." "But," the lawyer added, "the potential is there." Both narcotic officials said' the plant should be eradicated. Gentry said marijuana is a general name that covers a vast preparation ranging from very low potency, such as that grown in the Iowa fields to hashishes which is marijuana in its strongest form. "We've been some increases experiencing in hashishes, particularly in California and other states as well. Where it Marijuana . . . See Page 7
