Pledges on Trade to Latins WASHINGTON (AP) — President Nixon has pledged efforts to lower U.S. trade barriers with Latin America and said he will encourage American private investment in the region. Serving as host for 24 Latin American foreign ministers at a White House dinner Wednesday night, Nixon listed trade and private investment as two essential ingredients for overcoming Latin America's development problems. On private investment, one of the most sensitive areas in inter-American relations, Nixon said, "we recognize that each government has the sovereign right to determine the rules for investors in its country, but we also believe that private investment is the richest potential source of technology, capital and organizational skills the developing world needs." The ministers dined with Nixon after spending the afternoon in private, informal consultations with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. The meeting is a prelude to the annual meeting of the Organization of American States General Assembly, scheduled to begin Friday in Atlanta. Diplomats reported the meetings with Kissinger, which wind up here today, were extremely cordial. According to U.S. officials. Kissinger suggested that Latin American grievances over U.S. private investment might be alleviated if the hemispheric nations established ground rules governing foreign investors. One discordant note in the conversations was a unanimous expression of support by the Latin Americans for Panama's demand to gain control over the Panama Canal Zone. But their apprehensions were directed mostly at a Senate resolution with 35 sponsors calling for "continued undiluted U.S. sovereignty and jurisdiction over the Canal Zone." U.S. officials said Kissinger pledged he will persist in efforts to draft a new treaty with Panama conferring eventual control over the zone to that country. Throughout the discussion, there was no mention of the U.S.-supported hemispheric embargo of Cuba although Argentina was expected to raise that issue during today's final round of consultations. Argentina is one of six members of the OAS that has unilaterally violated the 10-year old OAS commercial and economic boycott of Cuba. U.S. relations with Argentina have been somewhat strained owing to American reluctance to approve licenses that would enable the Argentine subsidiaries of three U.S. automakers to sell cars and trucks to Cuba. HOSPITALIZED Mike Soyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Soyer of Carroll, h,ad riose surgery Wednesday. His address is Archbishop Bergan Mercy Hospital, 7500 Mercy Road, Omaha, Neb. 68124. He is in Room 334. Hot Off the Wire — ~ " Top U.N. Priority to Aid to Poorest Nations UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) — Delegates to the special United Nations General Assembly have assigned top priority to measures aimed at helping the poorest countries stave off economic ruin. But they can't agree on where the money for the immediate special measures is coming from. The "working party" of the Assembly's special economic session decided Wednesday night that various proposals for easing the present hardships of needy countries should be taken up ahead of longer-range matters. Chairman Eustace Seignoret of Trinidad-Tobago asked for specific proposals in writing for the discussion starting today, midpoint of the special session. A cabinet minister from Sri Lanka told the assembly that fuel, food and fertilizer price rises have brought "some de- yeloping countries. . including my own. . .to the brink of a disaster." aster." AMES, Iowa (AP)—Only an infinitesimal number of the 1,250,000 vehicles checked by the Iowa Highway Commission in the year ended last June 30 were longer than permitted by state law. The percentage of length violations was .003, said Dennis Ehlert, director of the commission's Traffic Weight Operations.

Shoplifting— The suspects got away, but without trousers here "Wednesday in a shoplifting caper reported by Sheriff John G. Longnecker. According to Longnecker, Mai Foley, an employee at Nockels Clothiers here, called the sheriff's office Wednesday afternoon and reported that two women had left the store with two pair of trousers. A male companion was waiting in the car, which Foley told officers bore a Pottawatamie County license. An alert was put out for the car with the Pottawatamie licence, Longnecker said. But shortly after, Jerome Hannasch of 127 South Court Street here, on his way to his farm west of Carroll, called the sheriff's office and said he had found two pairs of trousers lying along U.S. 30. The trousers were returned and identified by Foley as the ones which had been taken. Further alerts were put out on the car in Denison and Audubon, Longnecker said, but no arrests resulted. The trousers are being kept by the sheriff's office for evidence, Longnecker reported.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) -The stock market returned to a sluggish, drifting pattern today as a two-day rally ran out of steam. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was down 1.64 at 865.77, but gainers and losers were just about even in light trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Colonial Penn Group was the NYSE volume leader, up 1% at 30'/H in trading that included a 124,700-share block at 29 Vz. The stock sold for as much as 57% earlier this year. On Wednesday the company said it expected to show a strong first quarter earnings gain. At the American Stock Exchange, the market value index was up. 18 at 94.73. Other Big Board issues on the active list included National Airlines, up % at 21%. The airline reported sharply higher first quarter earnings today. Thursday there was "a tremendous increase" last year in lending by the Federal Land Bank System. In remarks prepared for the annual convention of the Federation of Federal Land Bank Association Managers and Fieldmen, Harding said loan volume totaled $3.3 billion last year, an increase of nearly 46 per cent. "We have to recognize that a part of the increased loan activity was predicated on inflation," he said, adding that farmland prices shot up nearly 20 per cent on the national average. Wilbur Erickson, president of the Federal Land Bank of Omaha, told the convention "there continues to be a very strong demand for long term farm credit." SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) The 63 defendants being tried en masse for treason or sedi- > Bausch & Lomb, also benefitting from a favorable first quarter report, was up % to34'/ H . Oils were generally fractionally higher. Golds also gained, but other metals issues softened. Autos and most retail stocks were lower. The Amex's most heavily traded issue was Texas International, unchanged at 8V». The Big Board's composite index of all its listed common stocks was down .03 to 50.21 at mid-day. Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) — Farm commodity futures prices drifted lower on the Chicago Board of Trade today. Trade was mixed but the pace was rather slow. The market has been generally lower over the last three sessions and there again was no apparent news from the outside to stimulate or offer any reason for a sustained rally. Reports from the country indicate field work was progressing very well and that the pace apparently was ahead of last year. This tended to influence new selling of corn and oats futures. Wheat futures were under rather active selling pressure on the opening, falling 10 cents a bushel.
