2—Ukiah Dally, Journal, Uklah, Calif. Tuesday, January 17, 1978 Bank work Warm Springs bid delayed Cpl. William E. Vandenberg. Army Corps of Engineers, has instructed the district engineer of the San Ftancisco district to postpone advertising of the main embankment contract, for the Warm Springs Dam in the Russian River Basin. On Jan. 5 Huey D. Johnston,, secretary for the Resources Agency of California, sent a Jetter to the director-designate of the Office of Management and Budget outlining concerns of the State of California, primarily regarding aspects of dam safety and fish and wildlife mitigation measures in reference to Warm Springs Dam. Vandenberg, in a subsequent meeting with Johnson Ml Jan, 6, proposed that the staffs of the Corps "of Engineers and appropriate state agencies confer on these matters with a view of resolving them within the next three to five weeks, These consultations are already underway. Vandenberg has reviewed the information curriently available relating to daiii safety and the schedule of submission of additional consultants reports on seismicity and on structural analysis related to Seismicity. Iliis information is also being forwarded to the state for its review as it becomes available to the Corps. In view of the schedule of consultant, reports and - the requirements fpr additional reviews by the Corps in the field and at the Washington levels, and because of the extensive coordination required to resolve questions of fish and wildlife mitigation, the division engineer decided to delay advertising for bids on the main embankment contract until these reviews are completed. Vandenberg stated, "I am hopeful that these matters can be resolved promptly, so that the project can proceed in accordance with the Congressional authorization and .appropriation legislation and the recent court decisions supporting the adequacy of fhe Work done in planning and design. I^rompt resolution of the matters at issue will allow the budget schedule to , be preserved in accordance with Johnson's statement of sup- poi-t for continued funding in his letter to the Office of Management and Budget." ^ Today's | market report ATEMAN EICHLtR.

The Dow fell 3.99 points Monday to its '•owest level its 767.99 finish on April 9, 1975. It is down 59.43 points so far this year. Analysts said the dollar's rise was a result of a hike in interest rates in the United States. Traders continued to worry about speculation the Federal Reserve Board would tighten credit further in light of a $4.1-billion surge in the nation's money supply last week. This could push rates even higher. Many investors were waiting for President Carter to deliver his State of the Union, energy and . tax speeches Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Carter has said the dollar and the economy will suffer until J !6ngress enacts an energy bill. Advances outnumbered de-' Railroad, cereals not a good mix WASHINGTON (UPI) - A high-ranking consumer official has told Amtrak he doesn't think the passehger rail company should have agreed to join' Kellogg's in a scheme to use boxtops for promoting both rail ridership and a highly sugared cereal. Amtrak, in turn, says it's in the railroad business, not nutrition, and is only trying to do what Congress told it to do — get Americans riding the trains again. At issue is an Amtrak arrangement with Kellogg's which makes it possible for children to ride Amti-ak free if an adult buys a ticket and turns in three box tops'. , The campaign, involving three varities of Kellogg's cereal, ts. to be heavily promoted * in a newspaper advertising canipaign this weekend. Lee Richardson, head of the Office of Consumer Affairs in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and former president of the Consumer Federati(»i of America, told Amtrak in £| letter: ^ "We ask you to consider whether parents will be able to save enough money on reduced fares to cover the cost of dental bills incurred by. the sugar coated cereal their children ingest."

Richardson admitted there have not been definitive studies on the harmful effects of sugar, btit said, "it is generally recognized by health . and nutrition specialists that high levels of sugar intake are linked with tooth decay, obesity J diabetes, atherosclerosis and hyperactivity in children. Moonie kidnap charges REDDING (UPI) Kidnapping charges were filed Monday against a Wisconsin couple and two California men arrested in the alleged abduction of a young "Moonie" church member who was mistaken for the daughter of the couple. The Shasta County district attorney's office filed charges of kidnapping, conspiracy to kidnap, and false . imprisonment against Donald and Marilyn Guth of West Bend, Wis., Timothy Jones, 27, Buena Park, and Clifford Daniels, 23. * The Guths were arraigned in Justice Court, pleaded innocent and were released on their on recognizance. Jones and Daniels, who were released on $7,500 bail, will be arraigned J&n. 31. Karen Lee Kraus, 17, of Burlingame, a follower of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church — from which parents sometimes try to "deprogram" their offspring — told authorities she was abducted Thursday night by two men she identified as Jones and Daniels. Traditions are a way of life for most people — any change in these traditions is first viewed suspiciously, then tried hesitantly, and in the end, hopefullyi openly welcomed. This is how the Mardi Gras Committee felt when, after three year? of talking ' and planning, the decision was finally made to drop the costume ball and adopt a gaming-dancing-dinner platr form. With, this new look, enthusiasm is running higher than ever and the number of volunteers has doubled, according to chairman Rick Hendef-sbn. The biggest,, change this . year is the addition of gaming. On Feb. 5, Garl Purdy Hall will house blackjack, craps,, roulette chuck-a-luck and other games. In the other half of the building will be a band and dance floor. Gaming 'hours will be 6:30 p.m. until 12:30 a.m. Dancing will continue until 2 a.m. to the strains of two bands; Nice 'n Easy and The Feather River Music Co. Throughout the evening, prizes will be bidded on at various^times by anyone lucky enough to win a few extra chips at the gaming tables. " For the convenience of gamblers and dancers, dinner will be served atfour different times — 8, 9, 10 and 11 p.m. A catered buffet by Los Robles Lodge of Santa Rosa will be served in the "Fine Arts Building. Taking on the task of setting up the gaming for this years "Mardi Gras goes Monte Carlo" are Bill, and Betty. Hook. "We've had a lot of information and help from other groups that have used a casino idea to raise funds." says Betty. "We have engaged a company from San Francisco that will supply 30 blackjack tables, 3 crap tables, chuck-a-luck, wheel of fortune,' ovei- and under and a roulette wheel. Now we are busy training people to deal the tables at "Mardi Gras ,goes Monte Carlo." A professional dealer from Tahoe, Lauri Turri, conducted a dealers school last night in St. Mary's School auditorium. She taught volunteers how to deal blackjack and craps. • Unlike past years, there is no waiting ligt, and plenty of tickets are availble!
