12 Golesbur ister-Mdil, Golesbur Thursdo Federal Agents Questi On Guard 9 8 Murder in KansasRi ners LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (UP!) - Warden L o r e n Dag* get! said Wednesday a "maniac killer" slabbed an unarmed guard to death during a violent lunchtime spree at the federal penitentiary* But Daggett admitted he doesn't know who the killer is. began Eighteen FBI agents interrogating 600 inmates at the federal prison today to determine who instigated Tuesday's riot that led to the guard's death and the holding of three hostages for 11 hours. We'll Find More "Only 11 inmates have been positively identified toy the staff as having participated in it/' Daggett said. "But I'm sure we'll find more." Prison authorities believe 100 or more of the 2,000 inmates at the 7kyear-old lockup were actively involved in the disorder. During the disturbance, two men fled to the laundry room where they held four hostages. After eight hours, one hostage was released to present the demand of a bargaining- grievance session to Daggett. The two inmates in the laundrv room, who surrendered the when Daggett agreed claimed to took discussion, claimed they no part in the killing of guard Wayne Selle, 39, the father of three. "I am convinced in my own mind that the killing and the activity in the laundry were tied together," Daggett said. "I don't know for sure who killed the guard, but I know it was a maniac killer," the warden said. Multiple Wounds Daggett said Selle was on the third tier of a cellblock and his killer chased him three flights to the basement area. Selle died of multiple stab wounds. "He was probably stabbed on the stairway," Daggett said. "He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. He was there when the maniac killer came along." Officers have found a weapon and a bloody shirt they believe was directly involved in the killing. Nearly all the inmates returned to the dining hall for lunch Wednesday, visiting privileges were resumed and custodial officers stored riot gear in a special facility outside the main gate. But Daggett said the prison is "like a large city-once disrupt* ed it takes some doing to get things back on the track." 1 r t Record Net Farm Income Seen WASHINGTON (UPI) - Net farm Income will rise $4 billion this year to cap a two-year rise totaling $48.5 billion, Agriculture Department economists predict. farm income situation" Economists writing in a report said 1973 net income in the booming farm economy probably will reach a new record of about $23.7 billion this year, compared with a revised estimate of $19.7 billion for 1972—the previous record-^and $15.2 billion in 1971. THE REPORT SAID gross farm income this year probably will jump about $15 billion in spite of a probable $1 billion decline in federal subsidy payments to farmers. The gain will be only partly offset by an increase of $11 billion in farm costs, the experts estimated. The forecast indicated gross farm income would climb to about $83.9 billion while expenses rise to about $60.2 billion. Economists said figures for January-June, 1973, showed farm income running at an annual rate of $24 billion because of sharply higher prices for both livestock and crops. IN THE SECOND HALF of the year, livestock prices were expected to average even higher while crop prices, despite prospective record harvests, were expected to be "very favorable" to producers. On a per-farm basis, the report said, net farm income in 1972 reached a record of $6,856, up $1,600 from 1971. Milita ry Opposes Jus tice O ffice id All w Draft Dodgers in Services WASHINGTON (UPI) The aimed forces have strongly opposed a Justice Department LINDSTROM'S Five proposal to save draft dodger from jail by allowing them t< join the services, administra tion sources said today.

About half took the draft. The draft law expired June 30, and now the only alternative to prosecution is for men to volunteer. But the armed forces decide whom they accept, and all three have said they don't want draft dodgers, about one- third of whom remain in Canada or Sweden. Troublemakers Military officers say many of these men only become troublemakers once they enter the service. The Justice Department, however, continues to propose that the youths be allowed to wipe their slates clean by joining the military. Removing the huge volume of draft cases from the court docket also saves the Justice Department a lot of time and trouble. One-sixth of all criminal cases begun in federal courts last year involved the draft. Under Study A Pentagon spokesman would only say, "The Justice Department proposal is under study by the Department of Defense." While the three services oppose the idea, a number of Defense Department officials, including those in the office of the Defense Department general counsel, have strongly backed it as a humanitarian measure. The sources said these conflicting recommendations recently were sent to the desk of Deputy Defense Secretary William P. Clements Jr., who must now decide what the official policy will be. There were about 11,000 draft dodgers on the books when the draft ended. About 4,800 are fugitives including 2,800 in Canada and 660 in Sweden. The remainder — 6,200 — are awaiting prosecution or, if Clements allows it and they choose it, the sound of a drill sergeant counting cadence.
