Panel Debates 3 Narrower Charges Against the President WASHINGTON (AP) With approval of two broad impeachment articles behind it, the House Judiciary Committee turned today to debate three narrower charges against President Nixon. The committee climaxed a 12-hour session Monday night by approving, 28 to 10, an article charging Nixon with violating his oath of office and his constitutional duties. The President's failure to comply with Judiciary Committee subpoenas is the basis for a third impeachment article the committee is expected to approve, though by a smaller margin than Monday's vote. Rep. Robert McClory, R-I11., sponsor of the proposed article, predicted it would be approved 22 to 16. There is a chance that an article on Nixon's personal finances also will be approved. The least chance for approval is given to an article charging that Nixon improperly ordered secret bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam war. Today's sixth day of nation- Vermilyea Takes DPI Job: Austin is Named The Carroll County Board of Education Monday night accepted the resignation of John Vermilyea, coordinator of elementary guidance programs for the county school system. Vermilyea, who has been with the county system for four years, told the board he has been offered a position with the State Department of Public Instruction. In that position he will be in charge of Elementary guidance counselors throughout Iowa and will work on a consulting > said the offer from the I "seems to be an exceptional opportunity, or I would not accept it." After meeting in closed session for an hour and five minutes, the board voted to offer Jim Austin, an elementary guidance counselor in the system, an 11-month contract with a salary of $14,500 to replace Vermilyea. AustinVnew contract becomes effective Aug. 1. The board also voted to pay Vermilyea $1,034.35 for the time he worked under terms of his new contract. Vermilyea told the board he planned to begin work with the DPI about Aug. 15, and assured board members that his resignation would not jeopardize any programs now in use in the Carroll County system. The board will meet in regular session at 8 p.m. ally broadcast debatecould be the panel's last. McClory's swing to the pro- impeachment side Monday in the abuse of power debate produced the most one-sided substantive vote of the public deliberations. Seven Republicans joined the 21 committee Democrats in support of the article, which many of them judged to be stronger than the obstruction of justice article approved Saturday, 27-11. "Just as a consistent abuse of power holds more danger for the republic than a single criminal act, so is this a far more serious charge than in the article already adopted," said Rep. Lawrence J. Hogan, R-Md., a leading supporter of Article II. Rep. Robert F. Drinan, D- Mass., called the committee's action "a victory for justice" and said history may compare it to the challenge of the English barons that led to the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, a milestone in the growth of political liberty in England. President Nixon's supporters on the panel viewed the proceedings darkly. ''I'm deeply concerned for the future of the presidency," said Rep. Delbert L. Latta, R-Ohio. Rep. Charles E.

By Jim Jenkins COON RAPIDS - Mark Behrens, from the Roselle areas, is on his way to building a dynasty in the swine competition at the Four County Fair here. The youngster captured grand champion honors in the individual market hog competition here Monday — something that is becoming old-hat for the 12-year-old veteran of the show ring. Monday's performance made it three years in a row Mark has taken home the grand champion ribbon in the individual market hog class. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Behrens, Mark repeated 1 ast year's performance Monday as he put two more hogs with his champion individual and took reserve champion honors in A ud lib oil Pioneer, 104, Dies By Staff Correspondent AUDUBON - Mrs. Male Freeman, 104, the oldest resident of Audubon County died Monday at Friendship home here where she had lived since 1959. Mrs. Freeman was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Powers. When she was four, her family moved from Illinois to what was then the town of Oakfield, about a mile east of where Bray ton now is. I. P. Hallock, who was prominent in the early-day-history of the county, then was operating a general store at Oakfield. Hallock was a brother of Mrs. Freeman's mother, and Powers and Hallock became partners in the business. Some years later, the Rock Island branch line from Atlantic was built, missing Oakfield to the west by about a mile. It was there that Brayton was founded, and Mrs. Freeman's father later managed a lumber yard at Brayton for many years and then farmed in the area. When she turned 100, Mrs. Freeman reminisced about her life, particularly in the pioneer days in the south part of Audubon county. Mrs. Freeman said she could recall those early years .when the county seat was at Exira. The courthouse later was moved to Audubon. When she was a youngster at Brayton, Mrs. Freeman said she could remember a group of rowdies called the "Troublesome gang," so named because they came from the part of the county which is traversed by Troublesome creek. "They would gallop into town raising commotion and shooting their guns into the air to terrorize the people," she recalled. As most of the pioneer residents did, Mrs. Freeman got her education without benefit of college professors. However, she studied vocal and instrumental music at Pioneer, See Page 2 the pen of three market hogs division.

The 56th annual Four County Fair continued Tuesday with the judging of 4-H dairy and beef entries getting under way in the morning.

Knievel said his 13-foot long "sky-cycle" will be jet-propelled 2,000 feet across the chasm on Sept. 8. He's guaranteed $6 million for the stunt. Set Up for Livestock Loan Bids Livestock producers who need federally guaranteed emergency loans to see them through financial hard times can begin applying for them in a week or so, say Agriculture Department officials. But the guarantees, provided by Congress in legislation signed by President Nixon last Thursday will be available only to farmers and' ranchers whose time and income are mainly associated with livestock raising and who needs federal leverage to stay in business. The law limits total guarantees to $2 billion and sets a maximum of $250,000 for any one producer of beef and dairy cattle, hogs, sheep, goats, chickens and turkeys. It also limits the guarantees to 80 per cent of the loans, which must be made by banks or other Loans, See Page 2 Picked the Wrong Sheep for Himself By Staff Writer COON RAPIDS — What do you get when you set someone up in the sheep business and try to help them learn all they can about raising and caring for the animals? Wayne Rupiper, Route 3, Carroll, found out at the Four County Fair here Monday. He found out you may get reserve champion instead of champion honors. And that's just what happened here in the sheep competition. Jackie Handles, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Handles, Route 1, Carroll, had an urge to show sheep in competition, ftupiper heard about that urge and bought a number of head of sheep dnd in turn sold them to Jackie. Rupiper helped Jackie raise the animals, showed her the proper methods of grooming them and, when it came time, sheared them. Did his help pay off? Maybe too well. Jackie won champion honors for both individual market lamb and for pen of three market lambs Monday, while reserve champion honors in both divisions went to Kent Rupiper, Wayne's son. Lawrence Handlos said after the judging that "Wayne bought the sheep, sold them and sheared them, but picked the wrong ones for himself." Rupiper, smiling at the irony, shrugged. But the placings did not completely surprise Rupiper. "I told Jackie a month ago that she had the grand champion," he said. Cold Cash at Stake for Savers WASHINGTON (AP) Government ceilings offer small savers little choice in interest rates at federally chartered banks, but the way that interest is computed is another matter. Bank specialists estimate there are as many as 50 different ways of computing interest. The Federal Reserve Board, after a study as part of proposed truth-in-saving legisla- Look Over Denison Site DENISON, Iowa (AP)—Les Schmadeka, vice president of Maharishi International University, is inspecting the campus of the former Midwestern College as a possible new site for the California school. tion, recommended Monday that the government avoid limiting savers' options by standardizing methods for computing interest. Instead, the Fed supported legislation pending in a Senate committee to require fuller disclosure of how earnings are figured. Cold cash is at stake for savers. Take, for example, a husband and wife who decided in January to put away $100 every month toward a Christmas vacation. If the money is saved at the maximum 5 per cent in a bank that uses a strict variety of the low quarterly balance system of figuring interest, the couple will have $1,111.30 to withdraw in December. If the money is saved in a bank that uses day-of-deposit to d a y-o f-withdrawal computations. They'll get back $1,127.64 at the same 5 per cent interest. The difference is $16.34, or enough for a modest dinner for two. The crucial factor is that the strict application of the minimum balance rule means the couple gets no interest for money on deposit in the January-March or October-December quarters. Their minimum balance in those periods was 0. The day-of-deposit method, for the savings account depositor, rates virtually even with continuous compounding. Both methods offer the highest returns to the saver of the various computation methods currently used. Yet an American Banking Association survey shows that more than half of the banks responding used some method with a lower return for savers than offered by day of deposit. ABA Would Abolish All Prostitution Laws CHICAGO (AP) - Laws against prostitution are blatantly discriminatory against women, invade individual privacy and should be dropped from state books, a committee of the American Bar Association recommends. The recommendation is in a report that calls for the adoption of a resolution which urges states to "repeal all laws which classify as criminal prostitution or solicitation by or on behalf of a prostitute." The resolution is to be considered by the ABA's House of Delegates at its annual meeting in August. Approval of the resolution by the full House and the ABA's Board of Governors will provide guidance to state bars and other lobbying groups be- fore state legislatures. The committee says there is no reason for a state to outlaw "commercial sex." "Whether a person chooses to engage in sexual intercourse for pure recreation, or in exchange for something of value, is a matter of individual choice, not for governmental interference," the report states. Decriminalization could lead to a reduction of crime associated with prostitution, it says. The report was approved by the ABA'?
