Friends may call after 2 p.m. 2 Programs Designed to Help Feeders AMES, Iowa (AP)—Two programs designed to make beef cattle production more profitable for Iowa farmers have been announced by the Iowa Beef Improvement Association. Both programs are designed to help Iowa cattlemen command better prices when selling feeder animals to feedlot operators. One program involves keeping records and obtaining beef carcuss information on feedlot steers. The other is a group- sale program of quality treated cattle for Iowa feedlots. David Noller of Sigourney, president of the beef improvement group, said the new feedlot testing program will be called PROFIT, which stands for Performance Reputation on Facts in Test. That program is designed to test young cattle sired by performance tested bulls. Noller said cattle will be fed for a fee in a commercial feedlot, where feed records will be kept. After test cattle go to slaughter, information will be • Tour (Continued From Page 1) discussed conservation, and terraces in particular, at the Schechinger farm. The farm has 6,000 feet of terraces of two types. One type is the parallel, level type where writer is retained; The other type is the parallel drainage type, where • surface water is removed by underground field tile. Gesell said that Schechinger has worked with the Soil Conservation District to plan conservation measures for the farm. The plan includes tiling, intensive row-cropping and ponds, in addition to terraces. At General Electric, the tour groups saw most of the plant and watched workers assemble range and minute timers for both gas and electric ranges. It was pointed out that the Carroll GE plant makes 60 per cent of all range timers on any kind of range in the U.S. H. J. Kienapfel, director of Region 12 Council of Governments, told the farmers and businessmen about the Carroll Urban Renewal Project. Kienapfel explained the governmental loans and grants the city received for the project. He also spoke on how taxes were affected, saying Carroll home-owners are carrying a lower percentage of the tax burden now, compared to before urban renewal. Slats for confinement swine and beef feeding, bunker silos and feed bunks were discussed at Pre-Cast Manufacturing. The groups saw the products being made and views samples of the various concrete products made at the plant. Dairy operations were looked at on the Pietig farm. Pietig milks about 60 Holstein cows and raises all of his own replacement heifers. Pietig said he sells about 41,000 pounds of milk every other day. The groups toured a silage-feeding complex and the milk storage area on the farm. Merle Wiedemeier explained his farrowing "on wheels" concept of sow farrowing, which involves a farrowing house built on wheels so that the farmer can move the unit and get away from poisonous gases that are present in pit-type farrowing houses. Wiedemeier also showed other products manufactured 1 on his farm near Carroll, including a newly introduced inexpensive garage. Van Valkenburg tabbed the tour a success and thanked all the individuals, organizations and companies that donated time and products to the tour. Friday at the Ohde Funeral Home in Manning. Mrs. Vollstedt is survived by her husband and a son, Paul, at home; a daughter, Mrs. Gary (Darlys) Bean of Lake City; four grandchildren; her mother, Mrs. Lena Kuhl of Manning; two sisters, Mrs. Hugo Wilhelm and Mrs. Kathryn Vollstedt, both of Manning; and two brothers, Marvin Kuhl of Manilla and Marcus KuhlofSchaller. compiled concerning the kind of beef the animals yield. The other plan, said Dr. John B. Herrick, Iowa State University extension veterinarian, is to group together 500 or more feeder cattle to be sold at a local auction barn in one sale. These feeder cattle would be "certified" as ready for placement in feedlots. Certification involves weaning, castration, vaccinations, dehorning, grub control, etc. Herrick said such a program is needed in Iowa because 80 per cent of the Iowa calves sold generally are not weaned prior to sale, 75 per cent have not been immunized and 25 per cent not castrated. He said failure to have cattle treated contributes to about a 2 per cent death loss the first month a feeder has them. Fryer is Returned SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP)— One of three brothers charged in connection with a quadruple murder in northwest Iowa has been returned from Wyoming where he fled after his escape from an Iowa jail. James Fryer, 21, Sioux Falls, S.D., will be turned over to Iowa authorities by the federal government, said Asst. U.S. Atty. Robert Sikma. He said such action would not interfer with the federal case against Fryer. Fryer appeared before U.S. Magistrate David Blair in federal court in Sioux City Wednesday night for a preliminary commitment order. The appearance was in connection with a federal charge of interstate transportation of a stolen motor vehicle, which was filed against James Fryer and his brother, Allen Fryer, 30. The two reportedly stole a car when they escaped from the Lyon County jail in Rock Rapids June 19. They were captured later in the day in Gillette, Wyo. Allen Fryer was convicted on four counts of first-degree murder in the shotgun slayings of four Sioux Falls teenagers at Iowa's Gitchie Manitou State Park last November and was awaiting sentencing. James Fryer faces similar charges and was awaiting transfer to a medical facility in Oakdale to determine if he is mentally competent to stand trial. A n o t h e r brother, David Fryer, 24, is serving a life sentence in the Iowa State Penitentiary on a conviction on one count of first degree murder.

Arraignment Set for 6 in Police Probe CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP)—Five Cedar Rapids police officers and the city's public safety commissioner were to be arraigned Thursday in Linn County District Court on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and conspiracy. The six were indicted Tuesday by a Linn County grand jury which investigated alleged wrongdoings by the Cedar Rapids police department. Police Chief Wallace La- Peters said Wednesday the five officers were placed on indefinite suspension without pay. The officers—Det. Capt. Wallace F. Johnson and Dets. Robert B. Manchester, Darwin Ammeter, Kenneth Millsap and Donald Rosdail—face charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and conspiracy. Public Safety Commissioner James Steinbeck also was charged with two counts of conspiracy, seven of perjury and one of obstruction of justice. He appeared Tuesday night before District Judge William Eads. Steinbeck, 31, a 1 * former police detective, said he would not resign his office and would request a speedy trial. He said he thought there were more important matters that should be made public before the November elections. A 250-page report of the grand jury's probe was read in open court late Tuesday. Last February, the grand jury was ordered to investigate allegations made by Linn County Atty. William Faches of illegal activities within the police department. After the report was released, Judge Eads signed bench warrants for the six men, but quashed the warrant issued for Steinbeck when he appeared in court voluntarily. Bike Trail Policy Approved AMES, Iowa (AP)—The Iowa Highway Commission has approved a bike trail policy which allows the development of bicycle trails along new primary highways, but bars the commission from initiating trails along existing highways. The provision requires some other state agency to finance construction of bike trails along existing roadways, and some other governmental agency to maintain them if they are built. Raymond Kassel, commission planning director, said Wednesday's action complies with a legislative order to participate in a federal program allowing states to divert up to $2 million in highway constnjction funds for bicycle or hiking trails. Unions Lift Sinatra Ban SYDNEY, Australia (AP) Australian unions today lifted their bans on Frank Sinatra and a tour promoter said: "The show will go on." The agreement — without a previously demanded apology from Sinatra — was reached after a three-hour huddle between Sinatra's lawyer, the promoters and Robert Hawke, Australia's top labor union official and president of the ruling Labor party. Hawke flew to Sydney to meet with Sinatra after a number of unions demanded that Sinatra apologize for insults to Australia's journalists.

CHICAGO (AP) — Farm commodity futures prices ranged from mixed to lower on the Chicago Board of Trade Thursday. The three commodities in the soybean complex were weakest on the floor. Liquidation was rather active by many longs in advance of a government report on acreage and expected production of the major grains this year. Trade was mixed in the major pits with commercial interests, local professionals and commission house brokers acting for the public on both sides.

Minnette Doderer, D- lowa City, introduced a bill in 1972 which would prohibit all marriages involving persons under 16. While it passed the Senate, it has not been acted upon in the House. Asst. Atty. Gen. Nolan said a request for an opinion on the law's constitutionality had supposedly been made about a year ago but "I made a quick search a month ago and couldn't locate such a request." The constitutionality of the law has been questioned on the grounds that it is discriminatory on the basis of sex, since the age requirements for males and females differ. In the meantime, young couples continue to seek licenses to be married and continue to be turned down unless they are old enough or the female is pregnant. Johnson County Clerk of Court E. J. Wombacher said that happened to eight to 10 couples in the county last year. Wombacher's advice for couples who can't get an Iowa license is to go somewhere else and get married and then come back to Iowa for a mock ceremony—which is what Smith and Miss Jones did. Briefly PoliticalMone congressional candidates-nearly twice as much as Sy spent two years ago, Common Cause says Common Cause said in a report issued Wednesday thattte American Medical Association leads the list fh SB million The political arm of the Associated MUk Prod™ s was second with $1-6 million and the Marine Engineers Union was third with $910,000 All three groups have a heavy stake in legislation. Common Cause said that in 1972 political interest groups spent $9.7 million in Senate and House races John W Gardner, chairman of the self-styled citizens lobby, coupled release of the report with a plea to Congress to pass pending legislation "for new clean sources of campaign funds." "When the House of Representatives considers campaign finance reform later this month the question will be • 'Is the House of Representatives ready to clean UD its own house, or will congressmen perpetuate the myth that the evils revealed by Watergate infect only the executive branch?'" Gardner said. WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Judiciary Committee is set to make public eight volumes of materials it has gathered in the course of its presidential impeachment investigation The volumes, encompassing some two million words, are to be made public at 5:30 p.m. CDT tonight Co P1 es of the documents were made available to news organizations in advance. Each volume contains a statement of information, followed by detailed evidence intended to back up the committee's findings. Included is a statement of information and supporting documents submitted in support of President Nixon by presidential lawyer James D. St. Clair. WASHINGTON (AP) — Associate special Watergate prosecutor William H. Merrill conceded today that John D. Ehrlichman did not approve a break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist, but said the former presidential assistant was guilty of plotting an ill e g a 1, nontraceable secret search. Making his final argument to the jury, Merrill said, "It's clear that no one used the word break-in because a break-in was not contemplated... "To talk about a break-in would not only be inconsistent with covert, but inconsistent with nontraceable," Merrill said. Direct testimony and memos entered in evidence at the 11-day-old plumbers trial have said Ehrlichman approved a covert operation on condition it not be traced back to the White House. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Watergate committee says contributions to President Nixon's 1968 campaign were used to buy his wife expensive diamond earrings and may have financed thousands of dollars of luxury items for his Florida home. The committee said its investigators also built a strong circumstantial case suggesting, but not proving, that C.G. "Bebe" Rebozo, the President's closest friend, may have diverted for his own purposes at least part of a $100,000 contribution from billionnaire Howard Hughes. A White House spokesman called the report "warmed over baloney" based on "unsubstantiated allegations." LOS ANGELES (AP) - The final $600,000 "balloon payment" on President Nixon's San Clemente estate is due in four days, but his new personal attorney says the entire amount can't be paid by July 15 without refinancing. Dean S. Butler, whose Los Angeles law firm of Willis, Butler and Scheifly recently took over most of Nixon's personal legal work, said on Wednesday that techmca problems" are holding back a decision on how to make the payment. The President's share is $226,440, according to a White House audit released last year. The rest is the responsibility of the B & C Investment Co., set up by presidentml friends C.G.
