A Better Fertilizer Probe Case Needed WASHINGTON (AP) - A delegation from Iowa, sent here by the state's legislature, talked Thursday with Justice Department officials about the possibility of looking into alleged fertilizer price fixing and gouging. Acting Head of Seminary Resigns Post ST. LOUIS (AP) -Troubled Concordia Seminary here is without a leader for the second time this year following the resignation of its acting-president, the Rev. Dr. Martin H. Scharlemann. A spokesman for the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod said Monday that Scharlemann, 63, resigned because of what he called "physical exhaustion." Scharlemann took over administration of the seminary shortly after the school's Board of Control suspended the Rev. John H. Tietjen from the post Jan. 20 on grounds that he allegedly allowed false doctrine to be taught at Concordia, the largest of the Synod's schools. In.the weeks following Scharlemann's appointment, the majority of the faculty was fired for boycotting classes in protest'^ the Tietjen suspension and about 380 of the schools'450 resident students left the campus to enroll in a "seminary in exile" set up by the fired teachers. Scharlemann, who had earlier acknowledged the difficulty of his position, said he considered himself expendable and that, "no young man ought to be asked to risk his career" by taking the post. A member of the Scharle- mann family said Monday that the acting president had trouble sleeping and apparently was suffering from "nervous exhaustion." Synod officials said a new acting president may be selected Sunday, when the Board of Control begins a regular two-day meeting. The turmoil in the Synod stems from a long-term dispute between conservatives and moderates concerning how literally the Bible is to be interpreted. Charged With Death of Wife TAGS, N.M. (AP) —Charles Verquer, 36, remained in jail in Bethany, Mo., today on a warrant charging him with the death of his wife Nancy, the district' attorney's office said. The body of a woman believed to be Verquer's wife was found by a fisherman Friday in Carson National Forest near Taos. Verquer reported his wife, 24, missing last December, eight days after their marriage. The chief investigator for the district attorney's office, Ernest Trujillo, said positive identication of the partly decomposed body awaited a dental check. "There wasn't enough left on her fingers for fingerprints," he said. Trujillo said a ring on the body had been identified as one sold earlier to Verquer. Officials said the body was clothed in jeans and a blouse but without shoes. An autopsy showed the woman was strangled, Sheriff Arturo Trujillo said Sunday. Verquer already was being held in Missouri after being arrested at Martisville, Mo., on a fugitive warrant issued in Colorado, Trujillo said. Robert Lounsberry, Iowa state secretary of agriculture, said the group was told by Justice lawyers that if it could provide examples or other information about antitrust violations they would look into the matter. Lounsberry and three others, including two state senators, were authorized by the Iowa legislature to come to Washington and look into what they said was a critical fertilizer situation facing farmers. The fourth member, Del Van Horn, was along as a special representative of Iowa (}ov. Robert D. Ray. Van Horn is director of the Iowa Development Commission and said he would have no comment until after he reported to the governor. Lounsberry said "it's questionable'* whether the lowans could put together a case right now that the department might accept for investigation purposes. But he added "it's a possibility we may develop something and we'll work with the state attorney general's office" to see what might be done. "There seems to be an availability of fertilizer — at a price," Lounsberry said in an interview with the delegation. "But the price is about three times what we should expect." The four-man group also met for nearly two hours at the Agriculture Department with Ass i s t a n t Secretary Clifford Yeutter. The lowans said Yeutter assured them USDA "is doing everything it can to twist arms in the industry and to get rail cars" to move more fertilizer into farm areas. But state Sen. George Milligan, R-Des Moines, said he was not satisfied with federal efforts and that "somebody needs to fight for the Iowa farmer, and we have to lead that fight." Milligan said farmers urgently need to know more about the fertilizer supply and what they can expect in the weeks ahead. '' I get the distinct impression nobody really has a handle on what the fertilizer supply situation is," Milligan said. He added that USDA says there is a five per cent shortage while the industry says the deficit is 15 per cent. "Meantime, the Iowa farmer is aware his costs are doubling and tripling," Milligan said. Asked if he thought an antitrust investigation was in order Milligan said, "We need to start to ask the tough question." Sen. Berl Priebe, D-Algona, said he agreed with Milligan and Lounsberry and that it should be determined quickly who along the fertilizer pipeline is most responsible for huge price increases.

Times Herald, Carroll. la. 9 Tuesday, April 16,1974 * NFO Calls for Dairy Cow Sell-off CORNING, Iowa (AP)-The National Farmers Organziation (NFO) Tuesday called for its members to start a methodical sell-off of dairy cows to combat falling milk prices. Oren Lee Staley, president of the Iowa-based organization, said the sell-off would begin with the sale of 500 head of dairy cows Thursday at Holcombe, Wis. Staley said the sell-off will extend from Minnesota and Wisconsin to all dairy producing areas of the nation. The farm organization charged that some dairy product manufacturers, including co-operatives, as well as large national dairy corporations are closing their dairy product manufacturing plants "apparently in an effort to back up fresh milk supplies and rollback prices paid producers." The NFO said cheese prices have dropped 60-70 cents a hundredweight for milk during the past two weeks. "Our phones are ringing constantly at the NFO home office," Staley said. "Dairymen realize that although it may not show up in their milk checks until May 20, the rollback is on." "Milk producers simply cannot take a price cut and remain solvent. Production costs have continued to rise very rapidly. Fertilizer, fuel and farm supplies are up 40 per cent—some items much more than that, Staley said. He said dairy operators "really need higher prices for their milk to break even. They do not propose to be bankrupted as the nation's livestock producers were in recent months." Staley said that the NFO has made contracts with several meat packers to buy milk cows for slaughter. "If processors won't take m i 1 k at cost-of-production prices," Staley said, "but are determined to roll back prices, the only economically sane solution for dairymen is to sell their cows for slaughter and stop producing milk as quickly as possible. He said it would be better for farmers to take a one-time loss of a "few hundred dollars now," rather than a larger loss over a longer time. Schedule of NFL Unveiled NEW YORK (AP) — The National Football League unveiled its 1974 schedule today with the Miami Dolphins, winner of two straight Super Bowls, opening on the road against the New England Patriots, Sept. 15. The New England game is the first of three consecutive away games for the Dolphins. The schedule also shows five other playoff teams from last season playing the first weekend on the road. Oakland, the American Conference champion, will visit Buffalo for the first Monday night series' opener, Sept. 16. Minnesota, the National Conference titleholder, plays at Green Bay, while other NFC division winners, Los Angeles and Dallas also are away the first weekend. The Rams play at Denver and the Cowboys journey to Atlanta. Washington, the other playoff participant, visits the New York Giants at New Haven, Conn., the Giants' temporary home. The only teams from the 1973 playoffs who will start at home are Cincinnati, which plays Cleveland and Pittsburgh, which hosts Baltimore. Other first weekend match- ups are New York Jets at Kansas City, Detroit at Chicago, Philadelphia at St.Louis and San Diego at Houston. This year's rotation renews six of the geographical inter- conference rivalries introduced in 1970. They are Philadelphia at Pittsburgh and Atlanta at Miami, Nov. 3, Jets at Giants Nov. 10; Dallas at Houston, Nov. 24, and Kansas City at St. Louis, Dec.l. Twenty of the 182 games will be shown on national television. In addition to 13 Monday night telecasts by ABC, the network will handle a Saturday night match between Dallas and Oakland on the last weekend of the season. The regular season concludes Dec. 15. The Super Bowl is set for Jan. 12 at New Orleans. -Hot Off the Wire- Republicans Vote to Not Accept Truck Rider DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— Senate Republicans have voted overwhelmingly to not accept a long-truck rider to the department of transporation (DOT) bill, Senate Majority Leader Clifton Lamborn, R-Maquoketa said Tuesday. The Republicans caucused Monday evening and discussed major legislation that must be dealt with before the current session ends. The session is currently in its 66th day. The House last week added the rider to allow 65-foot, twin- trailer trucks on state highways to the bill to establish the DOT, one of Gov. Robert Ray's priority issues. Ray earlier vetoed a long- truck bill and said he might also veto a DOT bill if it contained the long-truck rider. RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — General Electric Co.'s failure to provide pregnant employes with sickness and accident benefits is sexual discrimination, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge Robert R. Merhige Jr. ruled Monday that GE's policy is deliberate and intentional discrimination and a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He barred the company from continuing the policy. The decision will affect some 100,000 women employes at GE plants across the country. Merhige ruled in a class action suit filed last year by seven female employes of the GE plant in Salem, Va., and Local 161 of the International Union of Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers. MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — Sen. George S. McGovern, promising to help "return the government to the people once again," today announced his candidacy for re-election. The South Dakota Democrat, who lost overwhelmingly to President Nixon in 1972, returned to his hometown to give the official notice of his bid for a third term. McGovern, 51, has no Democratic opposition so far, although candidates have until April 19 to file. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)—A bill making its easier for persons buying homes on contract and person who are elderly or disabled to file for homestead credits passed the Iowa House 90-0 Monday. The bill eliminates a requirement that persons buying on contract must own at least 10 per cent of the home before they are eligible for the homestead credit. It also allows persons 65 and older or disabled to apply for the tax credit by mail. The bill now returns to the Senate, which passed it earlier in a somewhat different form. WASHINGTON (AP) -Ten years ago Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart wrote that he could not define obscenity but he knew it when he saw it. On Monday, Stewart indirectly suggested that the members of juries that sit in obscenity cases may be in that same position. The court heard all arguments Monday in two cases that present problems in the application of the high court's latest views on obscenity, reached only last June in a series of 5-4 decisions. A key issue in both the current cases is what kind of community standard should be applied in judging permissible limits of sexual candor — statewide or local. OELWE1N, Iowa (AP)—President Nixon's press secretary has declined an invitation to visit an Iowa farm "to see what the farm situation is really like," says a Congressional candidate from Iowa. Mike Feld of Oelwein, a Republican seeking the 2nd District nomination, had invited Ronald L. Ziegler to Iowa following President Nixon's remark last month that "Farmers never had it so good." Feld said Monday that Ziegler responded by letter that his schedule does not permit time to visit an Oelwein farm. Ziegler's letter defended Nixon's statement, noting "he (the President) was speaking in terms of domestic and foreign demand for farm products." WASHINGTON (AP) — The administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency says the government's programs for energy conservation tend, so far, to be "a lot of rhetoric" instead of the "No. 1 priority" they should be. Russell E. Train said in an interview Monday, "It is generally accepted that there should be efforts to reduce demand, but I don't think Daily Record Westg El W i c k e s C p Winnebago W o o 1 w t h 19 U % 13% 7 U '/4 I?'* Court House License to Wed— Dan R.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department, acting to head off a possible nationwide penny shortage, has imposed stiff penalties for melting or exporting copper pennies. Treasury Secretary George P. Schultz approved the penalties of up to $10,000 and five years; in prison as a result of apparent hoarding and destruction of pennies for their copper content. Shultz said on Monday that demand for pennies in the last three months has totaled two billion, double the demand for the same period a year ago. "This unprecedented increase in the outflow of pennies cannot be explained by legitimate needs for commerce and trade, but can be attributed to speculation that the metal content of the penny will ultimately exceed its face value," Shultz said. Deaths, Funerals Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) - The one day limit advances of some farm commodity futures was erased on the Chicago Board of Trade today under a barrage of liquidation. Prices were weak on the opening and moved progressively lower. Wheat futures fell 18 cents a bushel, soybeans 12 cents, corn 6 cents and oats 4 cents. Soybean oil was Hown some 75 points and mp $3 a ton. Buying Monday was influenced largely by the weather over the three previous days and by some concern that fertilizer shortages could develop. Liquidation on the opening was influenced largely by a government report which the trade interpreted as bearish. There also were trade reports indicating that preparation of fields in the Midwest was running ahead of last year. Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) —The stock market rallied sharply today, stimulated by predictions that interest rates would soon turn downward again. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was up 10.56 at 854.35, and gainers outdistanced losers by about an 8-to-3 margin on the New York Stock Exchange. Brokers said the principal catalyst for the advance evidently was a prediction from New York's First National City Bank that short term interest rates would go as low as 6 per cent by late summer. The rapid climb of money rates lately has put most banks' prime lending rates at a record-tying 10 per cent. Florida Power was the Big Board's most active stock, unchanged at 22 Vs in trading that- included a 177,500-share block at 22. At the American Stock Exchange, the market value index was up .33 at 93.82. The Amex volume leader was National Kinney Corp.,. unchanged at 7'/a. The NYSE's noon composite index of some 1,500 common stocks stood at 49.55, up .51.
