Some Democrats fear the Republicans will resort to delaying tactics in an effort to produce gavel-banging rulings by Chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr., D-N.J., that would give an appearance of stifling debate. Rodino said Monday that he was prepared to give each of the 38 members 15 minutes to discuss impeachment in general terms, a total of nearly 10 hours for the committee's 38 members. That should consume the first two days of debate. After that members would be recognized to propose articles of impeachment and to offer amendments to them, with each member entitled to five minutes on each article or amendment. Rodino at one time had hoped to conclude the committee's deliberations by Saturday, but most members now expect the proceedings to run at least until next Tuesday. James D, St. Clair, Nixon's impeachment defense lawyer, added his touch of strategy Monday when he sent a letter to special counsel John Doar asking for permission to attend the committee's sessions. St. Clair said in a news conference Monday night that Doar now has abandoned his role as an impartial compiler of facts and become a prosecutor advocating Nixon's impeachment. That being the case, St. Clair said, he too should be present to provide defense arguments. St. Clair's proposal was rejected by Rodino as outside the committee's rules, which do not permit participation by outsiders. "Mr. St. Clair has no further role as I see it," said Rodino. "He was given every opportunity. We bent over backward." MRS. WALLACE AHRENS LAKE CITY — Services for Mrs. Wallace (Leone) Ahrens, 73, of Lake City will be Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at the Huffman Memorial Chapel in Lake City. Interment will be in Oakland Cemetery at Sac City. Friends and relatives may call at the Huffman Memorial Chapel after 10 a.m. Wednesday. Mrs. Ahrens died Monday, July 21 at Stewart Memorial Hospital. She was born July 6, 1901 in Boone to John and Stella Grogan Cowlishaw. She married William Barrett in July, 1919. Mr. Barrett died in 1921. She married Wallace Ahrens in 1944 and they lived on a farm near Sac City until his death in 1962. Mrs. Ahrens ,was a member of the Presbyterian church here. Surviving are one daughter Mrs. Erzin (Jean) Richardson of Lake City, four grandchildren, four great grandchildren and four stepchildren Mrs. Ollie McBride and Mrs. Joe Davis of Neb., John Ahrens of Oregon and Roy Ahrens of Missouri Valley. Both of her husbands, two brothers and one sister preceded her in death. Vandals Damage Farms Vandals caused damage Monday night that could total upwards of $10,000 on two farms and to a piece of equipment owned by Parrin, Inc., Iowa City, Carroll County Sheriff John Longnecker reported Tuesday. Longnecker said someone started a crawler tractor owned by the Parrin company and pulled a cable-burying machine through a corn field, a soy bean fiela and a pasture, damaging three fences in the process. Officials of the Parrin firm said damage to the cable plow could be $5,000 to $10,000. Parrin, Inc., is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons who caused the damage. The damage occurred on farms operated by Lawrence Sibenaller and Paul Hoffman, three miles south and a mile west of Carroll. An estimate of damage to the farms was not available late Tuesday morning. Frank Cox, St. Paul, Iowa, was sprayed with diesel fuel when the Parrin crew tried to start the crawler Tuesday morning. He was not badly injured, Parrin officials reported. The construction firm began laying 18 miles of underground distribution lines for the Glidden Rural Electric Cooperative July 15. The burying of the cable began in the Breda area and will tie the Breda and Templeton substations of the Glidden REC together. The project involves burying three single conductors, insulated for 15,000 volts, at a depth of 42 inches. The construction project was brought about by increased consumer demands on the system, according to Robert Weaklend, REC manager.

The holdup Monday afternoon occurred at the Orient branch of the Farmers and Merchants State Bank of Winterset. Willard Mease, executive vice-president of the Winterset bank, said the Donald Lobaugh, manager at Orient, and his wife were alone in the bank at the time of the robbery. Mease said Mrs. Lobaugh, who works part-time there as a teller, was uninjured. The FBI has issued a bulletin asking law officers to look for a reddish brown 1968 Ford with Polk County license plates. Officers said the car contained two or three persons and that the bandit was wearing red and white gloves. OMAHA, Neb.

Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) —Soybean futures eased as much as 10 cents a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade today, but wheat, corn and oats displayed some irregular strength. The weakness in soybeans was attributed largely to lower prices for meal and oil. Meal futures were down $5 a ton early, while oil declined some 50 points. All three commodities in the complex later recovered. A big factor in the initial weakness in the soybean complex was a report overnight scattered rain in the Middle West and a forecast for more in the next 24 hours. Another factor was a rather bearish report from the government on soybeans crushed for meal and oil and increasing stocks of the end products. The rain also was a factor, initially, in the weakness in corn, wheat and oats. All three rallied shortly after the opening. Some connoisseurs think that Black Angus meat is better tasting than the meat of other cattle breeds. COURT HOUSE License to Wed— Jeff M. Gliem and Constance M. Wiederin, both ofGlidden.

There were no injuries reported in either accident. FIRE DEPARTMENT Grass Fire- Carroll firemen put out a grass fire along U.S. 71 about two miles north of Carroll Monday afternoon. No damage was reported. • Budget (Continued From Page 1) Gute and Oswald said that balances on hand at the .beginning of the budget year and miscellaneous receipts account for 25.4 per cent of the budget. The balances come from money the city has collected — such as the sale of bonds to help finance construction of the municipal building — but which had not. been spent by Jan. 1. Water sales provide the largest income source the city itself collects, totaling 8.5 per cent of the budget. No. 4 in the sources of city income is the road use tax from the state, making up 7.9 per cent. Sewer rentals amount to 6.6 per cent, while income from municipal recreation facilities totals 3.6 percent. Parking meter receipts, 2.8 per cent and liquor profits, 2.6 per cent, round out the list of major money sources for Carroll. The greatest expense from this year's budget will be about $413,000 for the municipal building now nearing completion. The second largest expense falls under the general government category and totals $396,000. Included in the general government area are such things as urban renewal spending, about $120,000, and administration, including office expenses, salaries and insurance.

Corn Growers See a Drop in Iowa's Yields BOONE, Iowa (AP)—Iowa is one of six states that has shown a big drop in the National Corn Growers Association's estimated production per acre from a year ago. Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio produce 70 per cent of the nation's corn, but the association predicts Iowa will produce 96 acres per bushel this year compared with 108 last year. Bus Plans Outlined to Rotary Rotary Club members heard a review Monday night of the bill authorizing busing of private school students by the public school district and some of the problems that are being encountered in implementing the program. Rep. W.R. Ferguson (R-Glidden) who was active in getting the measure passed in the last session of the Iowa legislature, traced the history of the bill. Gary Tessmer, assistant superintendent for business affairs of the Carroll Community School district, explained the program being put into effect and discussed various problems that have cropped up and for which solutions are being sought. The two speakers were introduced by Robert Merritt, who arranged the program. Tessmer said there are three options in the bill: transportation by buses operated by the public schools, contracting with private parties and using the transportation provision providing reimbursement to parents who bring students to pickup points. "At this time there exist some problems to be worked out and some vagueness in the bill to be interpreted," Tessmer said. "The attorney general has been asked for a ruling on several of the questions." Plans for the 1974-75 school year include purchasing of two additional 60-passenger buses for use in the Breda area and contracting with Kuemper for utilizing its bus fleet to provide the type of service which has been given during past years. If this is not feasible, then the reimbursement provision may be used. Tessmer said he and Supt. Allen N. Stroh met last week with the State Budget Review Committee requesting allocation for the purchase of 17 new buses — two 60-passenger units to be delivered by Aug. 15 for use in the Breda area and 15 66-passenger units for the entire district next year. The estimated cost of the vehicles is $236,259.45. The school official said about 1,330 non-public school students are eligible for transportation. All reside in the Carroll Community School district. The legal limits for picking up students are two miles for elementary and three miles for secondary. A fleet of 33 buses is expected to be needed in the future. Plans have been hampered, Tessmer said, by the time factor — awaiting approval by the Budget Review Committee and interpretations by the attorney general. However, he added, "we are pursuing in the direction outlined." During the club's business session it was announced that Ken Puck of Manning will give next Monday's night program — a resume of an exchange trip to Australia. A guest Monday night was David Baker of Cedar Rapids, grandson of Lester W. Wilke. r Briefly Cyprus The Weather IOWA FORECAST Fair to partly cloudy tonight. Low mostly 60s.

The Greek cabinet was reported undecided who to send, since Acting Foreign Minister Constantine Kypreos took over the Foreign Ministry only a fortnight ago and is not considered experienced enough for the complicated negotiations ahead. Turkish Foreign Minister Turhan Gunes' arrival was scheduled for today but delayed 24 hours, and Turkish diplomats said he might delay longer. In Ankara, Turkey, Deputy Prime Minister Necmettin Er- bakan called for partition of Cyprus, with the eastern end going to Turkey and the western part belonging to Greece. Partition has been a long-standing Turksh goal but had not been mentioned before in the current crisis. Erbakan made the statement to newsmen but did not make clear whether he was speaking for the government. He heads the junior party in Ecevit's ' coalition government. A coup scare that swept Athens Monday subsided after the official radio repeatedly broadcast assurances that "foreign radio stations, known for their anti-Greek attitude, are broadcasting false reports Escapes Under Cover of Storm OAKDALE, Iowa (AP) — Johnson County authorities were looking for a man who escaped from the Security Medical Facility at Oakdale with the help of a storm that doused security lights. • Board (Continued From Page 1) meeting, Hall told the board that "we must make a record that what we asked to be done was not done. We must take a very firm attitude." The board said it felt the responsibility of keeping the books in order was Tenold's. Center asked Eich if Tenold's contract "is binding, or is this type of omission or neglect one which would justify firing the superintendent?" Eich responded that he would want to read Tenold's entire contract before answering. But he said he knows of no contract "so binding that a person can be negligent without answering for his actions." The board decided to wait until its Aug. 19 meeting to discuss action it may take against Tenold since the superintendent is attending summer school in Europe and will not return until mid-August. Government Quits ATHENS, Greece (AP) — A former cabinet minister reported after conference with the Greek military leadership that the government of Premier Adamantios Androutsopoulos resigned today. There was no immediate official confirmation. Former minister Petros Yarousalias was one of seven leading former Greek politicians summoned to the office of President Gen. Phaedon Gizikis for urgent consultations that dragged through nearly six hours. MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Six U.S. Navy men were missing and considered dead today after a heat-seeking missile went astray Monday and destroyed the helicopter in which they were flying 70 miles off the Philippine coast. The missile was fired by a Navy F4 Phantom jet. LONDON (AP) — Britain's Labor government is using a $1.2 billion loan from oil-rich Iran to cut taxes and increase food subsidies in an attempt to check inflation. ... The loan, announced Monday in Tehran, will consist of three five-year credits bearing the prevailing interest rate in the international money market. Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey said the money would boost such nationalized industries as coal, steel and railroads, running at a loss due in part to the pressure of worldwide inflation. BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - A U.S. Navy ship landed 384 Americans and 82 Lebanese from Cyprus in Beirut today. The evacuees were among 4,000 foreigners British forces convoyed from Nicosia to a British base on the south coast of the embattled island Sunday, after the Turkish invasion trapped them in the Cypriot capital. U.S. Navy helicopters ferried the 466 persons to the amphibiou ship Coronado Monday night for the trip here. ' An American official said the Coronado was the first Navy ship to dock in the Lebanese capital since its waters were closed to the U.S. Navy after the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. Several dozen Lebanese army troops armed with submachine guns stood guard as the evacuees disembarked. They were taken to the Holiday Inn in downtown Beirut. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Agriculture Department has bought slightly more than $5.3 million of meat for school lunches under an advance purchase program designed to take advantage of low livestock prices. Most of the meat so far has been turkey, followed by more expensive beef and, in a much lower quantity, pork. The program was announced during the last week in July, when moves by many elements in the livestock industry for government relief from dramatically sagging price levels reached full steam. NEW YORK (AP)—The president of Iowa Beef Processors, Inc.'s New York sales office denied Monday that he knew about payoffs allegedly made to bribe supermarket and labor officials to get the firm's boxed beef into the New York market. The firm, the nation's largest meat packer, and Currier J. Holman, its co-founder, are charged with misdemeanor counts of conspiring to bribe in a trial entering its seventh week here in state Supreme Court. KELLOGG, Iowa (AP) — Daniel Faubel, 25, of Buena Vista, Colo., was killed and his wife seriously injured in a one-car accident on Interstate 80 near Kellogg early Tuesday. Authorities said Faubel's wife, Donna, 23, was driving the car when it went out of control and struck a bridge. She was taken to a Newton hospital. The Faubels were returning home from Massachusetts when the accident occurred. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Wayne Morse, one of the first critics of U.S. involvement in Vietnam and a fierce independent whose convictions were respected by friend and foe alike, is dead at 73. Morse, hospitalized last Wednesday with a urinary tract infection, slipped into a coma early Monday and died of heart and kidney failure. Jim Miller, a spokesman for Good Samaritan Hospital, said Morse's family had decided against the use of a kidney dialysis machine to prolong his life. FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — A laborer relations case between the U.S. Department of Labor and Sears Roebuck and Co. began in Fort Dodge Tuesday. U.S. District Court Judge William C. Hanson is hearing the trial without a jury. The federal government alleges that the Sears store in Fort Dodge "discriminated between employes on the basis of sex by paying wages at rates less than the rates at which it pays employes of the opposite sex for equal work." Sentence 2 in Gem Thefts CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP)—Two persons have been sentenced in U.S. District Court in connection with a 1972 charge of interstate transportation of stolen jewels. James Aossey, a former Cedar Rapids businessman, pleaded guilty May 20 to a charge of transporting stolen jewels valued at $100,000 from Moline, Ilk, to Cedar Rapids. He was sentenced Monday by Judge Edward J. McManus to five years in prison. Aossey currently is serving a five-year term in the state penitentiary in a $400 theft of merchandise from a supermarket. Sharon Rogers, owner of a Cedar Rapids beauty shop, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting Aossey in transporting the jewels. She was given a suspended sentence and place on probation for 30 months. She said she went to Moline with Aossey but did not know the nature of the trip until they were on the way. The government said the jewels were stolen from a salesman, Benjamin Goldberg, in a Moline hotel. It charged Aossey with selling the jewels later for $45,000 in Los Angeles. Government agents seized the money, plus $3,000 of what Aossey's attorney said were Aossey's personal funds, when he was arrested in April, 1973. Judge McManus ordered the impounded money be applied to partial reimbursement of Goldberg.
