In the adult division, Brenda Jensen first for her work at Jensen's furniture. Second went to Ellen Boone and Jane Schock for their work at the Golden Sun Farm Store. A third prize went to Mary Handeland at NEW YORK (AP) - Clifford Irving and his wife, Edith, reportedly have refused to testify during appearances before a federal grand jury investigating possible fraud in the author's Howard Hughes "autobiography." But both presumably complied Tuesday with a federal judge's order to give the panel handwriting samples, since there was no evidence of contempt proceedings being prepared against them after their appearances. The New York Times today County Schools DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A bill that has been introduced in the Senate would require all county school systems to merge into joint systems of at least three counties each. quoted sources as saying that Irving invoked the Fifth Amendment guarantee against self-incrimination and his wife used either the same guarantee or the privilege of a wife not to testify against her husband in refusing to answer questions. It was the first jury appearance for Mrs. Irving, the acknowledged "Helga R. Hughes" who deposited in a Swiss bank three checks totaling $650,000 intended for Hughes, then later withdrew the money. A third key witness, Irving's literary researcher, Richard Suskind, also appeared briefly before the grand jury and won a delay until Thursday to allow his lawyer a chance to familiarize himself with the complex case. Suskind, who arrived in New York Monday from his home on Majorca, has sworn in a court affidavit that he witnessed a meeting between Irving and a man he believed to be Hughes. Irving claims he met the billionaire recluse for a series of secret interviews that provided the material for the book which McGraw-Hill Publishing Co. had intended to print. In another development, Swiss authorities sent their embassy in Washington informa­ tion needed to get Mrs. Irving arrested and, ultimately, extradited from the United States, a spokesman in Bern said. The spokesman said the Information was the second step before a formal demand can be made under the 72-year-old S w i s s-American extradition treaty. The first step was issuance of an international warrant last Friday. Right-Turners Must Yield Report was made to Police Chief C. I..

Gov. Ray Says Primary Should Be Held in June 4 GOOD/YEAR THE ONLY MAKER OF POLYGLAS® TIRES DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Gov. Robert Ray reiterated Tuesday that the 1972 primary elections in Iowa should be held in June, even if the current June 6 date has to be changed. The governor made the statement after meeting for over an hour with Lt. Gov. Roger Jepsen, Secretary of State Melvin Synhorst, nine Republican legislative leaders and members of the State Republican Party Central Committee. "By adjusting some preliminary dates, it seems to me the primary could be held in June even if we had to change the primary date," Ray said. The governor said "more people had to be involved" in the decision to change the date "than the one or two who decided last week to change the date to Sept. 5." Jepsen and House Speaker William Harbor last week called a news conference and announced the primary would have to be set back to September because of uncertainty in the date of a new apportionment plan would be handed down by the Iowa Supreme Court. "I don't know if June 6 is possible," Ray said Tuesday. "Apparently the chief justice will not say he's got a deadline or target date." But Ray indicated that Chief Justice C. Edwin Moore apparently believes the decision cannot be handed down before March 15. "The primary could be held 95 days from the date that the decision comes down," Ray said, adding this leaves the possibility of keeping the primary in June if it does have to be changed. "My feeling is that you should not move a set date until you have to," Ray said. "Then it should be set as close as possible to the original date." The governor said the legislature should wait until after the supreme court hands down its decision or sets a date to hand down its decision before acting to change the primary date. He said no decision could be reached in the meeting of Republican leaders Tuesday morning, but that the group probably will meet again. CHAMPLIN • H AM MON 11 OIL CO., INC.
