Objectives, Priorities for Rail Funds DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— The Iowa Energy Policy Council heard testimony Thursday from railroad spokesmen seeking shares of a $3 million state appropriation for an experimental program to upgrade branch rail lines. The council made no determination how the money will be spent, but did adopt objectives and priorities as to how the funds might best be spent. A demonstration project to upgrade a branch line will hopefully be underway by late summer so that some results might be shown to the legislature next January, said John Millhone, council director. "I would like to see a three- party agreement" in utilizing the funds, Millhone said. The agreement would consist of using state funds, financial participation by railroads selected for the model program, and pledges of financial assistance and expanded use of upgraded lines by communities they serve. Project proposals must be submitted before Aug. 15, Millhone said. Proposals received at a later date "will be considered only if assistance funds are still available." Each of the railway spokes- m e n cited deteriorating railbeds, ties and track as a need for state assistance. Ford Hears Tapes; 'Nixon is Innocent' GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Vice President Gerald R. Ford says he changed his ' mind about listening to White .House. Watergate tapes .and after hearing them still thinks President Nixon is innocent of anything impeachable. Since he took the nation's No. 2 office last December, Ford has insisted it would be inappropriate for him as a potential presidential successor to become involved by listening to the tapes. However, he disclosed at a hometown news conference on Thursday that he changed his mind because of the controversy over conflicting transcripts. The House Judiciary Committee on July 9 released transcripts of eight tapes given it by the White House. The committee version of the White House conversations differed in a number of important details from the edited transcripts the White House made public in April. "I have, I think, read, heard or otherwise absorbed the various material that has been submitted to the Judiciary Committee. There are some differences in the transcripts," Ford said. POLICE DEPARTMENT Two-Car Accidents- Dean T. Gramawski was charged by police with failure to have control of his vehicle after an accident Thursday evening at the intersection of U.S. 30 and Main Street.

Richard Turner has asked for an injunction against an Arizona land dealer to stop the firm from allegedly interfering with operations of his off ice. Turner had filed a fraud suit against Thunderbird Valley Inc. of Tucson, Ariz., last February. In a motion filed in Polk County District Court Thursday, Turner said the firm is using "threats, accusations and interfere with (Turner's) duties." He charged the firm with trying to coerce payment by many lowans who have already declared that they were induced by fraud to sign purchase agreements with the firm.

July 19, 26, 1974 IBP Trial Continues NEW YORK (AP)-The cochairman of Iowa Beef Processors, J. Robert Kemp, has testified that it took him nine months to learn that his company was allegedly involved in a $1 million scheme to bribe supermarket and union officials. Iowa Beef and Currier J. Holman, the other cochairman, are on trial in State Supreme Court on misdemeanor charges of conspiring to offer bribes to get the company's prepackaged beef into the New York market. The arrangements were allegedly made through Moe Steinman, a supermarket labor relations director and meat broker, who is scheduled for trial in the fall. Kemp, the third defense witness in the six-week-old nonjury trial, told Justice Burton B, Roberts Thursday about an April 1970 meeting here between Iowa Beef and union officials and Steinman. "Steinman seemed to be a low-class individual," Kemp said. "I wasn't in favor of a brokerage agreement with him." He said he based his feeling "mainly on Steinman's appearance, the way he conducted himself and his language." He said that he didn't learn of the alleged payoff scheme until nine months later. Kemp was to be cross-examined Friday when the trial resumes. Bricklayers Accept New Pact DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP)After a one-day strike, bricklayers in Dubuque have voted to accept a new three-year contract. Members of Bricklayers Local 17 agreed to the contract Thursday. It will allow either management or labor to renegotiate after two years. Other terms of the agreement were not relieved. A number of construction projects were closed down Thursday when picket lines went up following a strike vote. Other unions honored the bricklayers' lines. One of the projects delayed by the strike was the million- dollar City-County Law Enforcement Center. Completion date for the center, which was originally scheduled for August, has been set back until October by recent construction walkouts. The 90 members of the bricklayers union are involved in projects from Guttenberg to Maquoketa. Find Man Dead, Wife in Coma KORT DODGE, Iowa (AP)— An elderly Fort Dodge man* was found dead in his home Thursday after neighbors became suspicious of newspapers accumulated on his doorstep. Authorities said Oscar E. Kuehnast, 73, apparently had been dead since suffering a heart attack Monday. His 75-year-old wife, who is an invalid and unable to leave her bed, was unable to summon help and had apparently not eaten in several da vs. Cosmonauts Land MOSCOW (AP) — Two Russian cosmonauts safely returned to earth today in their Soyuz 14 spacecraft, ending a two-week mission aboard the Salyut 3 space station, Tass reported. The government news agency said cosmonauts Pavel Popovich and Yuri Artyukhin "feel well" after soft-landing their Soyuz transport ship near Dzhezkazgan in central Asia. Their mission, which began July 3, has been fully fulfilled, the agency said. The mission's successful and safe conclusion was in sharp contrast to the tragedy of the Soviet space station effort in June 1971 when, after 23 days aboard Salyut 1, three cosmonauts were found dead, strapped to the seats of their Soyuz 11 craft. ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Premier Bulent Ecevit returned home from London today to increasing demands for Turkey's armed forces to intervene in Cyprus and prevent Greek annexation of the island. Turkish troops continued to mass along Turkey's southern coast 44 miles from Cyprus and naval units continued maneuvers along the Turkish coast as they have been doing for several days. Government sources said the ships — including destroyers, submarines and small gunboats, were on routine patrol. They said no landing craft, necessary for any intended landing of troops on Cypus, have left Turkish ports. The Turkish cabinet announced it would ask parliament on Saturday for extraordinary powers to act with a free hand in a crisis. Ecevit returned home a few hours before dawn and met immediately with the commanders of the armed forces and then called the cabinet into session. Coming out of the cabinet meeting at daybreak, he told newsmen that he had briefed his ministers on his London trip, but toward noon he called the cabinet into session again SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — A Pan American 747 jetliner with 92 persons aboard landed safely today after losing a big piece of its left wing as it was approaching Sydney airport. The Boeing 747 has an overall wingspan of 196 feet. A Pan Am spokesman said a piece 20 feet long and 3 feet wide of the left foreflap fell off about 12 miles before the plane touched down on a flight from Fiji. The pilot, Capt. G.W. Jones, 53, of Las Vegas, Nev., managed to retain full control of the plane, the spokesman said. Part of the wing section fell into the back yard of a house in the Sydney suburb of Roseville, but no one was hurt. Residents said they heard a loud crack as the plane passed overhead. By The Associated Press More than 74o'oOO Bell Telephone System workers have started to vote on whether to strike. Meanwhile, talks continue in the National Airlines strike, copper walkout negotiations are suspended temporarily and 20,000 workers remain off the job at several General Motors plants. Leaders of the Communications Workers Union, the International Brotherhood of Electricial Workers and a group of independent unions asked their members on Thursday to vote on whether they want to strike. The balloting is expected to be completed by mail in about two weeks. Talks have been recessed temporarily in the copper strike in which 30,000 workers have left their jobs. The negotiations are between the unions and three companies, American Smelting and Refining Co., Phelps Dodge Co. and Magma Corp. Aproximately 20,000 General Motors workers were on strike or were laid off because of the walkouts at plants in Lordstown, Ohio, and St. Louis. United Auto Workers Union members also are threatening to strike GM's Anderson, Ind., and Danville, 111., plants.

The Boeing 707 was not hit but returned to the Seoul airport because of mechanical trouble, a South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman said. The shooting occurred as the plane was flying over ChokangNi, about one-half mile south of the Han River, which separates South and North Korea. The river is about 15 miles north of Seoul. A ministry spokesman charged the North Koreans with committing a cruel and inhumane act against the civilian aircraft, which carried Asian foreign exchange students. UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) - The new government of Cyprus was rushing a representative to United Nations headquarters today to take part in the Security Council debate on Cyprus. But the council went ahead with plans to hear deposed President Makarios this afternoon as scheduled. Council President Javier Perez de Cuellar of Peru said Makarios would speak as the "president of Cyprus." And it was apparent that the Soviet Union and most of the other 14 members of the council were not going to accord legitimacy to anyone from the Greek-led forces that deposed Makarios. WASHINGTON (AP) - The case for impeachment will be p r e s e n t e d to the House Judiciary Committee by its staff at two closed-door briefings leading up to the committee's final deliberations next week. At the first session today, special counsel John Doar is expected to propose at least three broad articles of impeachment charging President Nixon with obstruction of justice, abuse of his constitutional powers and contempt of Congress. A Republican member of the committee predicted on Thursday that both the committee and the House will approve at least one article, leading to a Senate trial to determine whether Nixon should be removed from office. WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Rules Committee has voted to permit live broadcast coverage of the Judiciary Committee's impeachment debate, if the Judiciary panel concurs. The three commercial television networks said they were ready to provide the coverage on a daily rotation basis, and the Public Broadcasting Service said it would offer videotaped replays each evening on the 246-station public TV system.
