Mo (AP) - School officials here said they will decide during the weekend whether to reopen area schools following closings prompted by a high absentee rate because of the flu. Three schools in the Santa Fe school district, located in the Waverly-Alma area, were closed by what has been diagnosed as B-type Hong Kong flu. Greg Prather, district superintendent, said that about 40 per cent of the elementary school students and one-third of the high school students were absent Tuesday. Prather said a telephone survey among parents that day indicated the projected absenteeism would be over one-third and decided to close schools until Monday. A survey to be taken this weekend will determine if reopening is feasible. In Slater, public schools also closed most of the week because of the flu epidemic. George Kenderick, superintendent, said the schools were closed Tuesday for the remainder of the week because 140 of the 600 elementary and high school students were absent that day and the number was expected to increase. Rezoning (Continued from Page 1) R-l (single family) to C-3 (commercial business). The commission recommended a change from R-l (single family) to C-0 (office business) that would permit Joyce Craig and Dorothy Negran to operate a beauty shop in the basement of their residence at 501 West 18th. Acting commission chairman Tom McCully broke a 4-4 tie by voting against a rezoning petition that would permit Charles F Paxton, 200 East 24th, to operate a retail business at that address. In explaining his vote, McCully said he did not want “24th to turn into another 16th.” WASHINGTON (AP) - President Carter says he will ask Congress to substitute a $240per-person tax credit for the existing $750 exemption, a change which would favor poor taxpayers and raise the taxes of those with higher incomes. Carter revealed the plan in a talk to employes of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Thursday. Sources in the Treasury Department said the shift in the tax burden might be offset by other portions of the Carter tax package which have not yet been disclosed The President plans to submit his tax reform package to Congress in the fall. The flat dollar amount would also replace an existing credit of $35 per person. The present $750 personal exemption means a $1,500 tax saving 'or a family of four with enough income to be taxed at the rate of 50 per cent. But a family of four in the 14 per cent bracket saves only $420. Treasury officials said the credit system, unless offset by other parts of the package, would benefit taxpayers with incomes below around $20,000 to Woman's petition for damages is settled here A $500,000 damage suit, filed in Circuit Court Oct. 29, 1975, by Rita Klara Schwenk, 2406 West First, and her children, David Warren and Kent William Schwenk, was ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in Circuit Court Thursday by Judge Donald Barnes. An out-of-court settlement for $46,500, reached between the plaintiffs and the defendants, Roman Louis Valek and Dart Transit Co., a Minnesota corporation, was approved by Barnes in his ruling on the case Mrs. Schwenk filed the suit as the result of the death of her husband, William W. Schwenk, 43, who was fatally injured in a traffic accident near the Highway 65 and Business 65 intersection just south of Marshall. Mrs. Schwenk’s petition claimed that careless driving by Valek, who was driving a truck owned by Dart Transit, caused his vehicle to strike the rear of another northbound vehicle in which her husband was a passenger. ☆ ERA (Continued from Page 1) ing on a 14-20 vote after gaining narrow approval in the House. According to the poll of 31 senators, those saying they would vote ‘yes’ were Caskey, Conway, Cox, Jones, Payne, Snowden, Welliver, Wiggins and Woods, with three others who had voted for it before — B anks , Gannon and Wilson—saying they were undecided. Saying they would vote ‘no’ were Bild, Bradshaw, Dennis, Dinger, Frappier, Gant, Manford, Melton, Merrell, Russell, Ryan, Schneider, Scott, Tinnin, Uthlaut and Webster. Creve Coeur Republican George M.'rray, who said he was also undecided, had voted against it before Democrats James Murphy of St. Louis and Henry Panetheire of Kansas City said they were undecided but leaning against it. ‘‘The main factor is that people who are for it are supporting me,” says former state Rep. Doris Quinn, an independent candidate for the vacant senatorial seat in the 16th District of Independence. ‘‘I’m the only candidate in this race who favors ERA.” An independent has not been elected to the Missouri legislature in 91 years. “I would vote against it because I don’t believe we want to turn that much power over to federal regulatory agencies,” says her Democratic opponent, Mitzi Overman. Republican Gerald Winship said he favors equal rights but would vote against ERA because it is too broad. ‘‘I think everybody should get equal pay and equal treatment but 1 don’t think we need to change the Constitution,” said Republican Ted Smith, a candidate for the 24th District Senate seat in St. Louis County. “There are enough laws on the books to handle it. I feel very strongly about it.” His Democratic opponent, state Rep. Edwin Dirck, voted against ERA in the House in 1975, but now says he would poll his district if elected to get his constituents’ feelings. Democrat Joe Ellis of Macon, a candidate for the 28th District seat, also says he would poll his district, while Republican David Doctorian has come out against the amendment. “I will oppose the amendment as proposed because of a number of reasons,” the Macon resident said. “But the most important to me is that the language is very vague. It will transfer more power to Washington and create a new bureaucracy.” The 28th District comprises eight counties in west central Missouri. $25,000 a year at the expense of those earning more. The President said the move to a tax credit was originally considered as part of the economic stimulus program he has already sent to Congress, but was abandoned because “we couldn’t afford it.” A tax credit is subtracted from what the taxpayer owes. A deduction or exemption is subtracted from his income before taxes are calculated. Two men are held in purse theft; charges awaited Sedalia police are holding two men in jail pending the possible filing of robbery charges in connection with the theft of two women’s purses early Wednesday morning The two were arrested about 11:40 p m.

He repeated his statement that he abducted Hall because he was convinced the mortgage company had tried to cheat him on a $130,000 land loan Kiritsis listed seven wrongs he said the company perpetrated against him, including blocking commercial development on the land where he wanted to build a small shopping center, and demanded $5 million he said the project would have earned him. After finally releasing Hall back inside the building, Kiritsis walked to an open sliding glass door and fired his sawedoff shotgun into the sky. ‘‘See, I told you this was loaded,” he said, as a terrified Hall bolted from the room. Then, as Kiritsis laughed to police that “I really pulled one over on you” with the dynamite bluff, officers grabbed him and took him away in a patrol car “Tony, you lied to us," Police Chief Eugene Gallagher told Kiritsis. “You didn’t let him go as you said.... You blew it.” ‘‘This is a cheap shot, a cheap shot,” a disbelieving Kiritsis shouted, before slumping down in the seat in silence Marion County Deputy Prosecutor George Martz said Kiritsis, who described himself as a “stable man,” would undergo psychiatric testing. The immunity that had been promised him earlier in the day specified he would not be mugged, fingerprinted, booked or subject to mental tests.

(AP) - Senior citizens from around the state gathered here Thursday to advocate their cause to the 79th General Assembly. Approximately 1,500 persons attended a rally to discuss five major bills affecting senior citizens. The bills were given top priority at the Silver Haired Legislature held at the Capitol last October. Two of the bills relate to funding for transportation of the elderly and handicapped Also included are bills to revise the state probate laws, to require that nursing homes be inspected by the state Department of Health four times a year, and to require the state to pay for prosthetics (eyeglasses, dentures, hearing aids) not covered by Medicaid Medicare or Mrs. Tennie Ross of Kansas City, chairperson of the mock legislature, said senior citizens have to work together and organize their efforts to get the legislation passed State Sen. Norman Merrell, D-Monticello, told the conference that the best way for them to participate and influence their representatives is to write to them and talk to them when they are back in the district. Secretary of State James Kirkpatrick, himself a senior citizen, agreed with Merrell. “It’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease,” he said. "The louder you squeak, the more attention you’ll get.” Brendan Ryan, legislative assistant to Gov. Joseph P Teasdale and Bill Barvick, who represents consumers in utility rate cases also addressed the conference.
