Truman Library New Year's Day set a record and a library official said, "1 think it is just the beginning." Dr. Ben K.

Thousands have come to the graveside daily since Friday. "Mr. Truman always wanted a low profile during retirement," Zobrist observed. "Now he is before the world once again and people are taking a renewed interest in his life." 93rd Congress WASHINGTON (AP) House Democrats gearing up for renewed battles with President Nixon face divisive struggles of their own today as they meet to organize for the 93rd Congress opening Wednesday.

The Democrats will elect their leaders for the new Congress, but Speaker Carl Albert faces only token opposition and Rep. Thomas P. O'Neill of Massachusetts is unchallenged for majority leader.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon, a surprise visitor to the White House on New Year's Day, is said to have found himself locked out of his own Oval Office Monday morning. Nixon, once expected to spend the entire holiday weekend at Camp David, Md., apparently upset security duty rosters— and other things— by returning from his mountaintop lodge Sunday night. Although there is evidence that a few aides anticipated the quick return from Camp David, one White House official reported that when Nixon appeared at his Oval Office at 7:30 a.m. on New Year's Day he discovered, after futile wrestling with the doorknob, that routine security precautions were keeping him out of his own inner sanctum. By all accounts, it did not take Nixon long to find a White House policeman—a uniformed member of the Executive Protection Service— who came up with a passkey.

Arts-Way Earnings Up ARMSTRONG - Net earnings showed an increase for second- quarter sales for both Arts-Way Manufacturing Co., Inc., and its subsidiary, Weigh-Tronix, Inc., according to unaudited figures released by the companies Dec. 27. Ending Nov. 30, 1972, the second quarter figures showed 43 cents per share as compared with 21 cents per share for the same period a year ago for the consolidated net sales. In releasing the figures, Arthur Luscombe, company president, pointed out that they include results for both Arts-Way and Weigh- Tronix. Consolidated net sales for Nov. 30, 1972, were $3,121,926 with consolidated net earnings of $227,516. Corresponding figures of 1971 were net sales of $1,975,009 with net income of $109,343.
