Deaths, Funerals GEORGE K. LAPPE GLIDDEN — George Kenneth Lappe, 56, Glidden farmer, died unexpectedly at his home Monday night, July 8. He was a lifelong resident of this community. • Board (Continued From Page 1) heaters installed in the Ward buses at a cost of $185 per unit. Chassis for the 15 buses will be ordered through Reuter, Inc. of Carroll, who submitted the low bid of $6,660.96 per unit, which includes freight and automatic transmissions. Other bidders for the chassis and their bids included: Whaley Chevrolet, $6,893 ; Herman Ford, $6,895.33; and Wittrock Motors, $7,053. In other action, the board hired Richard J. Janning as a fourth grade teacher for the coming year to replace Ann Poland who took a position with the county education system last month. The board also gave Stroh permission to make arrangements with the Des Moines Area Community College in setting up a career education program in the Carroll area for next year. Stroh said he has been contacted by representatives of the area college about setting up the six to nine-week program. Stroh told the board the only obligation the local district has to the program is providing space. The area college furnishes the teachers and expenses. But, Stroh said, the district has a problem in finding suitable space for the program. The program would be open to high school students throughout the Carroll area, including private school students, Stroh said. The board also voted to have State Auditor Lloyd R. Smith audit the district's records from the 1973-74 school year. Just last month the board had hired Olsen and Company of Carroll to audit the books. A letter written to the board from Smith said he had received numerous requests to conduct the audit. The board accepted this and voted to notify Olsen not to conduct the audit this year.

Strike Set at Cherry-Burrell CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) —Members of United Auto Workers (UAW) Local 1024 were to strike against the Cherry-Burrell plant here at midnight Monday when their present contracts expired. Negotiators failed to work out a new agreement after six weeks of talks, union spokesmen said. Some 400 UAW members are employed at the plant which manufactures food processing machinery.

Crops Need Rain DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Hot, dry weather in the past week and accompanying blowing winds trimmed soil moisture to critical levels in many areas, according to the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. "Topsoil moisture is 38 per cent short, 60 per cent adequate and 2 per cent surplus," the service explained. "The Western one third, especially the southwest, is very short of topsoil moisture." Nonetheless, crop conditions are good to excellent in the north and west, but only fair in the rest of the state. Corn is two to three weeks behind normal in most sections, but is beginning to silk in some early planted fields, the service said. • Transcripts (Continued From Page 1) Watergate grand jury. In many cases the staff transcripts filled in portions marked inaudible in the White House versions and also included material deleted entirely in the transcripts President Nixon made public April 30. Most of the differences made known so far involved changes in emphasis rather than substance. None apparently provided definitive answers to such questions as whether the President authorized payment of hush money to Watergate conspirator E. Howard Hunt Jr. Release of the transcripts is to be the first step in the disclosure of thousands of pages of evidence the impeachment inquiry staff has presented the committee in closed sessions that began last May 9. It will include the initial presentation by James D. St. Clair, President Nixon's defense lawyer. Retaliation against The Washington Post as leaked from the committee's Sept. 15 transcript was disclosed in a conversation in which Nixon points out that licenses of Post-owned television and radio stations required renewal periodically by the Federal Communications Commission. That transcript also quoted Nixon as saying of Edward Bennett Williams, attorney for the Post and also for the Democratic National Committee: "I think we are going to fix the son of a bitch. Believe me. We are going to. We've got to, because he's a bad man." A committee staff memorandum said that during the March 22, 1972, conversation involving Nixon, Dean, Haldeman, John D. Ehrlichman and John N. Mitchell, Nixon made the following comments to Mitchell that were not included in the White House version: "I don't give a what happens. I want you to (unintelligible) stonewall it, plead the Fifth Amendment . . . Even up to this point. The whole theory has been containment as you know, John . . . That's the thing I was concerned with—we're going to protect our people if we can." Times Herald, Carroll, la. ** Tuesday, July 9, 1974 *. "WtmMMIIMMMllimiltlMmillMIMIMlMHH Ambulances to Be Housed at a New Site The Carroll County Board of Supervisors Monday signed a six-month lease with Matt Neppel, Carroll, for the vacated service station at the corner of U. S. 30 and Northwest Street. The building will be used to house two of the county's ambulances. The ambulances in Carroll have been located at St. Anthony Regional Hospital since the county-wide ambulance service went into effect in January. But the board decided to move the ambulances and the ambulance administrator's office from the hospital because it said the hospital did not have enough space for the vehicles and the office. Carroll County Auditor William C. Arts Jr. said the vehicles will be moved to the new location July 15. He said the ambulance phone number will remain the same. In other action, the board accepted a recommendation from Sheriff John G. Longnecker and approved a pay raise for Deputy Sheriff Doug Bass. The raise boosts the deputy's yearly salary from $7,500 to $8,250 and is retroactive to July 1, 1974. Bass has been with the sheriff's office since July 15, 1973. The board approved a liquor license and a Sunday liquor license for The Pin Oaks, Carroll, and approved a cigarette permit for Gary's Standard Service, Glidden. The board also approved the monthly report of the Carroll County Health Nurse and the $500 bond for Forrest C. Mozena, a member of the county's soldiers' relief commission. Case Workers Go on Strike KACINE, Wis. (AP) About 7,000 employes of the J.I. Case Co., in four states went on strike at 11 p.m. Monday night, a spokesman at the firm's headquarters here said. He said a representative of . the United Auto Workers irj-> formed the^irm of the strike. ' 'Since a contract agreement was reached with the union June 29 and ratified by the membership June 30, we feel the strike is in violation of that agreement," he said. Spokesmen for UAW Local 180 could not be reached for comment. The company spokesman said the strike involved production employes at Case plants here and in Terre Haute, Ind v Burlington and Bettendorf, Iowa, and Rock Island, 111. Unit to Return Unspent Funds DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Unspent funds totaling $86,000 will be returned to the state general fund by the Commission on Alcoholism, a commission spokesman said Monday. Charles Churan said the money, allocated by the commission June 28, must be returned because it was not spent by July 1, the beginning of the new fiscal year. Churan said $49,000 of that money had been allocated to the Polk County Alcoholism Service Center for remodeling the center HOSPITALIZED Peter J.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) —The stock market lost some more ground today, abandoning an early attempt at a technical rally. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was down 1.64 at 768.93, and losers outpaced gainers by about 8-to-7 on the New York Stock Exchange. The market bounced upward a bit at the opening in bargain hunting after Monday's deep decline. But analysts said the upswing withered under continuing concern over record high interest rates and heavy loan demand. Texaco was the most-active NYSE issue, down Vs at 24. On the American Stock Exchange, the market-value index fell .75 to 74.99. The NYSE composite index, meanwhile, was off .09 at 42.16. Golds advanced, moving strongly against the market trend for the second straight session. McDonald's was up % at 38 3 /4 in active trading, rebounding slightly from a loss of more than 9 points Monday. The company said a Barren's magazine article questioning some of its accounting practices was distorted and misleading. The Amex volume leader was Williamhouse-Regency, unchanged at 4%. Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) - Wheat and corn futures came under profit-taking on the Chicago Board of Trade today after limit gains the previous sessions. Wheat futures fell 17 cents a bushel minutes after the opening, and corn was down 6 cents. At Monday's close, wheat was up 20 cents and corn 10 cents. The sharp declines after the opening, however, were later trimmed. While profit-taking was noted as a major factor in the selling, some of the speculative elements took note of rainfall over scattered sections of the Middle West the previous 24 hours. Another factor in the selling Yesterday's high 97 Yesterday'slow 75 At 7 a.m. today 79 of wheat futures was a trade At 10a.m. today 82 Precipitation (24 hours prior to 7 a.m.) Trace rain.

July 9, 1974 Heat Factor in Jump of Crop Prices DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Hot weather was partly responsible for a one day jump of corn-and'soybean prices at central Iowa cash markets, according to officials. Corn and soybean prices advanced 11 to 12 cents a bushel while soybeans moved up 20 to 22 cents Monday, officials said. The increase, one of the highest one-day cash market gains in several months, was considered unusual by Central Iowa market observers. In addition to the hot weather, market observers also gave partial credit for the price increases to Conrad Leslie, a Chicago, 111. based private crop forecaster, because his monthly report showed yields and acreages down substantially from earlier estimates. The Central Iowa cash prices for corn Monday ranged from $2.87 to $2.93 a bushel compared with Friday's quotations of $2.75 to $2.81. The soybean price range in was $6 to $6.12, up 20 to 21 cents a bushel from prices quoted Friday. Last week, the average price of corn was $2.77 a bushel or 22 cents higher than a month earlier and nearly $1 over a year ago. Soybean prices last week averaged $5.85 a bushel or nearly 80 cents higher than a month ago. A year ago the price was $5.25. Traffic Deaths DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Iowa highway death count through midnight Monday as prepared by the Iowa Department of Public Safety: This year to date—281. Last year to date—407. Briefly TrudeauSweep TORONTO (AP) — Canadian voters swept Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's ruling Liberal Party back into power in a smashing victory that gave him a solid majority in the House of Commons and the prospect of five more years in the office he has held since April 1968. Complete returns from Monday's general election gave the Liberals 140 of the 264 seats in Commons, a majority of 16. This represented a gain of 31 seats over their showing in the 1972 election. The other three parties lost groundbadly. Robert Stanfield's Progressive Conservatives won 95 > seats, a loss of 17. The New Democrats dropped from 31 to 16, and party leader David Lewis lost his own seat in Parliament. The Social Credit party dropped from 15 seats to 12, and one independent was elected. It was a stunning comeback for the 54-year-old Trudeau. He came within two seats of losing the government to Stanfield in 1972, and only the support of Lewis and the New Democrats enabled him to hold on for 19 months at the head of a minority government. "-- Now he can govern without the support of any other p party. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Nixon has narrowed his search for a new veteran's administrator to four possible nominees, whose names are being circulated among veterans groups by White house aides, sources say. One knowledgeable administration official singled out Earl Brian, a 32-year-old Vietnam veteran and associate of California Gov. Ronald Reagan, as the current White House favorite. But the officials said Brian's chances for nomination could be reduced by opposition from key House and Senate Democrats —a possibility confirmed by congressional sources. A White House spokesman said Nixon hopes to announce soon a successor to Donald Johnson, who resigned amid a controversy over delivery of veterans services and benefit checks. MADRID, Spain (AP) — Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger arrived today for a six-ho'ir visit to initial a declaration of principles on defense cooperation between the United States and Spain. Kissinger was flying back to Washington this afternoon and said he would appear in court there Wednesday to testify in the trial of former presidential aide John D. Ehrlichman. His appearance was ordered by U. S. District Judge Gerhard A. Gesell, and Kissinger said he would heed the order. HERMOSILLO, Mexico (AP) — Sonora state police hope to establish the identification today of a skeleton they believe to be that of U.S. Vice-Consul John Patterson, who was kidnaped March 22. Lt. Col. Francisco Arellano, state police chief, said he was "pretty sure" the remains found in a dry creekbed about eight miles northwest of Hermosillo were Patterson's. He said he hoped Mrs. Patterson would arrive today to try to make the identification. Arellano said a gold ring found on one finger of the skeleton carried the initials JLP and AML and it was believed these stood for John L. Patterson and Andra M. Latour, Mrs. Patterson's maiden name. WASHINGTON (AP) - Former White House special counsel Charles W. Colson expressed "a deep sense of gratitude" for the American people as he headed off to prison, toting two Bibles. Colson, who has spoken publicly of his religious conversion since leaving the White House, appeared to be in a good mood Monday as he left his home in nearby McLean, Va., to begin serving a one-to-three year sen^ tence for obstructing justice. He said the one thing on his mind was "a great, deep sense of gratitude for the thousands of people who have written to us and called us and the beautiful expressions from people all across the country." "You really learn that Americans have a very warm heart,"he said. NEW YORK (AP) The Federal Aviation Administration has warned airlines that Arab terrorists might try to sabotage planes in a plot based in the Netherlands and Japan. : It was learned from informed sources Monday that a memorandum <describing_th£uiajiger had been issued from Washington to all the appropriate airlines. Pan American World Airways said it had received warnings of such a plot. "We took what action we thought appropriate," a Pan Am spokesman said, adding that the airline had received intelligence reports forwarded from the FAA. He declined to say what precautions the airline had taken, saying the situation was a security matter. WASHINGTON (AP) - John D. Ehrlichman has testified he had no idea the White House plumbers were planning an illegal burglary when he approved a covert operation to examine the file of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist. The former White House domestic affairs chief either challenged or said he had forgotten every single element of the prosecution's case during his testimony Monday in the plumbers trial. With five hours on the stand behind him, Ehrlichman is to be cross-examined for approximately another two hours today by associate special prosecutor William H Merrill. The 49-year-old Ehrlichman and three others are accused of violating the'civil rights of Dr Lewis J Fielding, a psychiatrist treating Daniel Ellsbergattne time the former Pentagon analyst leaked the Pentagon Papers to the press. TOKYO (AP) — Pocketbook issues were cited today as the major factor in the setback for Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka's ruling conservative party in the senatorial elections Sunday. Although it was much too soon for solid developments in the factions of the Liberal Democratic party, there was speculation that there might be a move to replace Tanaka as party leader and prime minister. NAPLES, Italy (AP) - A U.S. Navy jet crashed on a farm six miles from Naples today within minutes of take off, killing all eight occupants, Italian police reported. The victims, all U.S. Navy personnel, were the four crewmen of the twin-jet Sky Warrior and four passengers, police said. Their identities were withheld by the Navy pending notification of the families.
