1 Farm-Food Stamp Bill Wins Senate's Approval , u ^ A S GT ON (UPI) - The Senate passed the huge, tflXL 2? . and I 00 * slm P bi ». ending to Agri- 2.%-%*^ EarI L - Sut2 ' s statement he was drV P^Ois plans to recommend a veto. —7% ^ Sui ?' P. assed Tuesday night by the Senate, was snipped to the House, where it was expected to receive . 7u COTS j de r ati °n before the congressional recess begins at tne end of the week. Republican leaders reported they now had an "understanding" that President Nixon would sign the compromise/ ONE MAJOR remaining obstacle was a proposed ban on food stamps for strikers which was approved by the House in an earlier version of the bill but ignored by the Senate in its first action on the measure in June, and de* feated on the Senate floor Tuesday nght. The bill includes a 4-year support plan for grains and cotton under which growers would get subsidy payments only if market prices fall below congressionally-set "targets." This is a sharp departure from current law, expiring this year, which provides fixed subsidy payments in most cases no matter how high market prices go. It also raises the floor under milk supports to 80 per cent of parity for the 1974 and 1975 marketing years. Administration experts estimated that grain and cotton subsidy costs under the new bill in 1974 may drop to $800 million from the $3.8 billion level of 1972 and the estimated $2.8 billion in 1973 payments. THE LEGISLATURE also includes a cut in subsidy ceilings for big farmers, but is minus a House plan to close "loopholes" in enforcing the ceiling on cotton farms. Another major new feature is a clause allowing Butz to order Nixon to ease government controls of foods—including beef—if Butz certifies controls are causing a shortage. Still other sections of the lengthy bill include a liberalized cost-oMiving adjustment scheduled for food stamp beneficiaries, repeal of a "bread tax" retroactive to July 1, extension of wool supports, creation of a new long-range conservation and forest subsidy system, extended subsidies to a controversial private cotton promotion group, and a phaseout of government commodity donations to needy people who would be offered food stamps instead. $1.50 Burgers Predicted But 'Won't Last Long' BATON ROUGE, La. (UPI) — An agricultural expert predicts consumers could be paying $1.50 for a hamburger at the end of the price freeze but prices will stabilize by December because "the American farmer can't stand prosperity-" Dr. Reid Grigsby of Louisiana State University said Tuesday Louisiana will experience a shortage of meat until the price freeze on beef expires Sept. 12. , He also predicted for two months after the freeze the price of meat will increase rapidly. "The prices are going to get up there," he said. "I think you could pay a dollar and a half for a hamburger and be delighted to get it — and I mean a quarter pound of hamburger." But Grigsby said by December the meat price situation should be calmer because farmers will produce more animals to take advantage of the high prices. "The American^ farmer just can't stand prosperity," Grigsby said. "They'll breed everything that'll breed. We'll have hogs running out our ears." Grigsby predicted the shortage will be spotted throughout Louisiana with the worst shortages in the bigger cities. , "The big metropolitan areas are going to suffer like hell," he said. Nine Killed By Accident In Missouri SIKESTON, Mo. (UPI)-Nine Mexican migrant workers were killed, and 11 were injured, when a truck carrying 25 Mexicans plowed into the rear of a semi'tractor trailer which was parked on the shoulder of Interstate 55 early today. The dead and injured were taken to Delta Community Hospital, where the highway patrol requested translators in order to talk with the survivors. Troopers said four of the workers, boys about 12 to 14 years old, were not injured. A fifth youth was seen running through a soybean field carrying several bags from the scene of the accident. Ten of the injured were in serious condition. Troopers said the workers may have entered the country illegally. The truck bore Texas license plates and thei driver was said to be from Texas. A man, his wife, their three children and a second woman were riding in the cab of the truck, a trooper said. Nineteen others were in the back, which was covered by a canvas spread over the top. The accident occurred near dawn, about eight miles south of Sikeston. There were no injuries in the semi-tractor trailer. Track President: We'll Get Money EAST MOLINE, HI. (UPI)The president of financially troubled East Moline Downs said here Tuesday the racetrack corporation has received oral assurances" it will get a $2 million first mortgage loan to stay afloat.

Price Rise Period Seen But Council Predicts Stability WASHINGTON (UPI) - The nation faces a period in which there will be a Strong tendency toward higher' prices but, in time, stability can be achieved without controls, President Nixon's Council of Economic Advisers said today. In a joint Statement, Chairman Herbert Stein and members Marina Whitman and Gary Seevers conceded they did not know how long prices would keep rising. Testifying before the Congress' Joint Economic Committee, tie three said, "We believe that if we follow prudent fiscal and monetary policies we will reach a situation of reasonable price stability without wage and price controls.

On Thursday, Dr. Glenn Schmidt, University of Illinois meat scientist, will evaluate the dressed carcasses— the real test of the judging. Mowing Tuesday's judging, Richie commented that "the top of the class today was as good as they come. They were as good as you'll find anywhere." He estimated about half the entries were "top pigs." Lee Steele, Knoxvilile, entered two barrows in Tuesday's competition, and won second place with a 22&ipound> animal. Steele's father, Jim, . ailiso showed a barrow which Richie placed sixth in the field. Third-place winner was shown by Floyd Westland, Prophetstown. Fourth and fifth places went to barrows brought to the fair by Clair Pottorl and Richard Leaf- green, both from the Rio .area. Harold Whittaker, Princeville, won seventh place with his barrow. COX' BARROW will be purr chased by the Knox County Pork Producers Assn. for $1 per pound live weight. Hie second place barrow, shown by Lee Steele, will be sold to Farmers National Bank, Knoxville, for 50 cents per pound live weight. "Actually, that's more important—on the rail," Richie explained. "That's when you really judge the quality of the pig. Tills is roafllly sort of a chance for the guys to see each others' pigs, you know," he added. Trophies and $225 were distributed Tuesday among the first five peaces. Richie also was to judge the "Open to the World" steer competition this afternoon. Show sponsors expected about 60 entries in that competition, Here Are Results From Competition at Fair "Moreover, we believe that long-continued controls will do great harm to the economy, a fact of which there is increas ing awareness." The council members acknowledged there is "a gap between where we are now and this condition of reasonable stability which we seek and expect to reach." They said the administration had "tried to make it clear to the American people that it would be neither possible nor desirable to repress all of these prospective price increases." The statement added: "Nevertheless, we think it is feasible and desirable to slow them down and reduce somewhat itheir ultimate dimension." Senate Approves Coal Research WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Senate Appropriations Commit tee has approved $95 million to finance research on new uses of coal as an energy source during fiscal 1974. The money approved Tuesday was almost double the amount requested by the Nixon administration. The committee adopted an amendment to the appropriation for the Interior Department to speed up the search for new ways to convert coal into synthetic gas or fuel oil as a cleaner energy source. "We have an estimated 500 years of coal reserves beneath our land compared to 30 reserves of oil," said Sen. Richard S. Schweiker, R-Pa., a leading sponsor of the amendment. "It would be foolish not to take advantage of it." Department J — Agricultural Product! H Prizes listed in order of finish.

Before going into the "girlie Congressman Would Impeach Nixon for 'Secret Air War' WASHINGTON (UPI) - A Massachusetts congressman on the White House "enemies list" has introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Nixon. Rep. Robert F. Drinan, D- Mass., a Jesuit priest, said in introducing the resolution Tuesday that "I have come to the point where I must follow my convictions and my conscience and recommend that the House of Representatives pursue its duty under Article 2 Section 4 of the Constitution which provides for the impeachment of the President." •Worst' To Act House Democratic leader Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill, also from Massachusetts, described Drinan as "an outspoken liberal and well-known anti-Nixonite" and said he was "the worst person in the House to take such an action." Drinan said four recent disclosures alone justify im­ peachment, but the one that pushed him over the brink to introduction of his resolution was the revelaftion thai Nixon "conducted a totally secret air war in Cambodia for 14 months prior to April 30, 1970." On that date, Drinan said, Nixon told the American people that for the previous five years the United States had "scrupulously" observed Cambodia's neutrality "with the full knowledge that he personally ordered thousands of B52 air raids over Cambodia" during that time. Other Reasons Other Nixon matters which justify impeachment apart from the Watergate break-in, Drinan said, "include taping White House conversations without the knowledge of participants, impounding money appropriated by Congress for various programs, land establishing a national police force accountable only to himself." Drinan quickly picked up Impeachment Procedures Shared by House, Senate WASHINGTON (UPI) -Only brief references to impeachment are made in the Constitution. The actual procedure for impeaching a President is left to congressional rules and the lone precedent of Andrew Johnson. The sole power of impeachment—in effect, the investigating and returning of an indictment—is placed by the Constitution in the House. The Senate is given the sole power to try all impeachments It sits as 1 — J " a court under oath and with the Supreme Court chief justice presiding. Conviction requires a two- thirds majority vote by the Senate. Lists Crimes The Constitution specifices that the President, vice president and all civil officers of the government shall be removed from office on impeachment for and conviction of "treason, bribery or other high crimes;the vice president, the vice and misdemeanors." It also says punishment on conviction cannot extend section of the Constitution provides that all crimes "except in cases of impeachment" shall be tried by jury. Andrew Johnson, the 17th President and successor to Abraham Lincoln, was impeached by the House in 1868. However, the Senate failed to muster the necessary two-thirds vote for conviction. Over the years, 12 government officials and judges have been im- president cannot grant him a Reached by the House and four pardon. have been convicted by the The final portion of this' Senate. beyond removal from office and a ban against holding further office. However, the person still is subject to prosecution in the courts. • Still another section says the President may grant reprieves and pardons for federal offenses "except in cases of impeachment." This means that if a President is removed from office and succeeded by praise for his resolution although he admitted in an interview with UPI that his colleagues were reluctant to endorse it. He said they favored waiting for a conclusion of the Senate Watergate hearings. "But only the House has jurisdiction" in an impeachment proceeding, he said and pointed out "the Watergale committee can't get into the question of impeachment." Most of the House members who shared his viewpoint settled for measures calling for a committee of inquiry to look in/to the possibility of impeachment. "I'm inclined to think a number of them agree with it (his resolution) somehow," Drinan said. Another Opponent One of those was Rep. Paul N. "Pete" McCloskey, R-Calif., who said he hoped the resolution "will result in a commencement of investigation by (the House Judiciary) committee leading to referral to the House." Drinan's resolution appeared, however, to have little favor in the Judiciary Committee, to which it was (referred, or with Rep. Robert Drinan . . . seeks Nixon's ouster the House Democratic leadership. Drinan could have taken a Judiciary Committee by standing on the House floor and demanding an immediate vote on impeachment. But he said he had no doubt but that he yearning for would have lost with that:easy money show business," Mrs. Baress spent 12 years with the Ringling Brothers Circus as a iira- ipeze artist. Following a serious accident, she met Tony Bar ress and they were married. "That's when I decided to go into the girlie show business," Mrs. Baress said. "I liked the applause and the glitter of being a star on stage. I really enjoyed my work. Now, of course, we're in the business strictly for money." The Baress family runs six different shows at one time. They have as few as two girls working at one fair to as many as 10. The girls earn from $250350 a week. They w.ock fc-url hours a night, six nights a week. While the Knox County Fair is one of the smaller steps on the show circuit, more than 1,000 persons attended last year's performances at Knoxville. Price of admission was $2. More Difficult Mrs. Baress said it is becoming more difficult to find girls to work in her shows. "Girls today just don't want to leave town like they used to. The girls are also getting married earlier and starting families. 1 can't blame them, thought. If I had children I wouldn't be on the road five minutes." Despite employment problems, Mrs. Baress feels the show will go on. "There are always girls excitement an*.* And as long as pic will go hungry before giving up their entertainment." Mrs. Baress, who has been married for 34 years, claims she has never had a show shut down. "That's because we do what the local officials tell us. I run a clean show. You more on the street than you see inside our tent. No Nonsense "My girls go to work with me witi thoy come home with me. I won't have any nonsense going on. They have all winter to play." Mrs. Baress hates the term "strip-tease artists." She much rather-prefers her girls be called "exotic dancers." "After all, anyone can take their clothes off," she said. "My S'Ws perform an art, and they appeal to a certain portion of society. We don't force-feed our entertainment on anyone. You have to come to us and then pay money to see the show. We never let minors inside." Reputed to be one of the lead- in g figures in her field, Mrs. Baress was asked how she became successful. "If you put a bunch of pigs on the stage, then you're not going to make any money. The key is to get attractive girls, who will act like ladies outside tl.e show tent." Do the men ever become rowdy? "Never. I go out before the show and tell 'them never to touch the girls and to keep their filthy remarks to themselves." Do you have a bouncer? "I don't need one.
