M Fatal Accidents for 19's Show No Increase for '72 [ Iowa in Brief ESTIIEKVILLE DAILY NF.WS, FIU., FEB. 2, 1973 Plgt 3 DES MOINES, Iowa <AP) There was "no significant increase" in the number of drunken 19-year-olds involved in fatal accidents on Iowa highways during the last half of 1972, according to a Department of Public Safety study. The study showed that after majority rights were granted to 19-and 20-year-olds July 1 there was a slight increase in the number of 19-year-olds involved In fatal accidents where drinking was involved. But the study, conducted by Aurora Berenguel, a statistical research analyst for the department, said there was no significant increase and the difference was due to "random fluctuations." The study was requested by Rep. John Clark, R-Keokuk, cosponsor of the House version of the majority rights at 18 bill. The Senate version of that bill, sponsored by the state Government Committee, is scheduled to be debated in the Senate Monday. Most opposition to lowering the age of adulthood has centered on the drinking issue. Those who favor dropping the age of legal adulthood another year say they feel it should be made consistent with the minimum age to vote. Clark said that, in asking for the survey on drunken 19-year- olds involved in fatal accidents, he had told the safety department he did not want the report slanted in any way. Originally, the bill passed a year ago had sought to Include 18-year-olds when it lowered the age for rights of majority, including making contracts, marrying without parents' consent, to sue or be sued, and drinking alcoholic beverages. But the Senate would not go along with the House vote on the drinking issue and a compromise was reached extending majority rights only to the 19- and 20-year-olds. This year, with the bill going to the Senate first, Senate leaders predict the bill will have little difficulty in being passed. Lt. Gov. Arthur Neu predicts the bill has "a 99.9 per cent chance" of being passed by the Senate. Sen. Norman Rodgers, D- Adel, a member of the House a year ago, is one of those opposing the bill. "I voted for 18 in the House, but I think we need a chance to see how it works at 19," Rodgers said, admitting "there are indications of a very strong movement to have the age changed." Mississippi Senator's Condition 'Very Serious' WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John C. Stennis, D-Miss., remained in "very serious" condition at Walter Reed Army Medical Center today but a spokesman reported he "had a good night." Stennis, who was shot twice Tuesday night during a robbery in front of his house in Washington, "is now awake, alert and well-oriented," the spokesman, Maj. Frank Garland, said. Garland said Stennis "contin- He's pitched three strikes, so OUT! By Abigail Van Buron ClfflM CMcafi TfflaM*. v. Nm liaA, IK. DEAR ABBY: I am a 29-ye»r^M ,won»n >>** been . married-ani; divorced three tim «(P $telaw 10 years. You will probably say what everybody else says when you find out I married and divorced fahe same man all three times. Our last divorce became final three weeks ago, and now Mike is begging me to marry him again. We have no children and we' don't want any. I really love the guy, Abby, but the only time he is good to me is when we're divorced. Mike is a wonderful lover, but he's a rotten husband. When we're man and wife he drinks, runs around, and stays out late. I never know where he is or who he's with, which drives me up a wall. If you knew how much we've spent on lawyers you would think we were out of our minds. I know there will never be any other man for me, but I know if I marry Mike again he'll go back to his old mean, abusive ways. Can you help me? . THREE-TIME LOSER DEAR LOSER: Three strikes and a man is OUT, a* matter how good he pitches. Some men are great to date but not to mate, and Mike could be one of them. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter is 21, and she shares an apartment with another girl. Until she went to college she was very considerate, and since she was an only child we were a very close family. Altho she was invited, she did not spend Christmas, Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, or Father's Day with us. She sent cards, but she spent those special days with her boy friend and his parents. t Naturally, I was upset, and when I confronted her she said there are 365 days a year to love us, and why should she give up these particular days? She says times have changed and I am square. Am I? VERY HURT DEAR HURT: No, but don't make an issue of it. I can understand your being "hurt," but if you continue to make her feel guilty, you may see even less of her. DEAR ABBY: My brother, Bob, was adopted by my family when he was a small baby. Bob is now over legal age, and was just informed that his real mother is an Indian living in Alaska and he is getting money from her oil rights. Bob says it is all like a dream, because he never knew he was adopted. He is trying to make up his mind whether to go to Alaska to collect the money. He doesn't know what to say to his mother, who is still living, because he has always considered the mother who raised him his one and only mother. Would you ask your readers now adopted children and real mothers feel after meeting each other after being separated for over 20 years? Is it a good experience or a bad one? NO NAME, PLEASE DEAR NO NAME: I woald goess it's almost always a tearfully Joyous reunion, but I'll ask. Readers? DEAR ABBY: Here in Iowa the winters are pretty cold, so my sisters and I have made a habit of putting out food for the squirrels, birds, and rabbits. Today, we had an especially heavy snowfall so we put out a little extra food for the animals and birds. Today, we saw a little squirrel who had been in our neighborhood for as long as we can remember go into a neighbor's yard and start to eat out of a bird feeder. Abby, this neighbor came out of his house with a shotgun and with one shot KILLED that little hungry squirrel while he was eating! It Just made us sick. Please print this and tell people if they don't want animals in their yard to just chase them away. You can't teach a dead animal anything. And for moae of you who de help these Uttk creatures in the winter when food is hard te come by, God bleu you. .. Love and peace to yen, Abby. Please don't use ear •eases, sign us, It, U AND U IN WATERLOO. DEAR la, it. AND IS: And W*e and peace Is I'ss asm yea wea't antev sat to ues to show improvement. The vital signs are good." Stennis is still being fed intravenously, Garland said. The spokesman added that Stennis has not been put back on the respirator that had aided his breathing until Thursday. The next briefing on the 71- year-old senator's condition will be held at 3 p.m. EST. Stennis was visited Thursday by his son, John H. Stennis. The younger Stennis, a member of the Mississippi Legislature, said he felt the assault on his father, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, would not change his attitude toward gun control. Stennis has opposed such measures in the past. Ringsted State Bug DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Wearing T-shirts decorated with drawings of large ladybugs and carrying signs with such inscriptions "Ladybug We Need You," more than 50 students from Samuelson Elementary School in Des Moines appeared in the Senate gallery Thursday lobbying for ladybug for State Bug, Lt. Gov. Arthur Neu last week met with the second and third graders at the school in an attempt to convince them that the ladybug shouldn't be named the official State Bug. However, the lieutenant governor had a difficult time trying to get his point across to the students as they refused to give up their stand. Neu recognized the two classes from Samuelson School from his Senate president's seat. "I want to comment on the very effective job of lobbying you are doing and welcome you to return— sometime." Innocent MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP)- A Muscatine County District Court jury has returned an innocent verdict in the case of Barton Beckey, 23, of Muscatine — charged with manslaughter. Beckey had been charged in connection with a fatal traffic accident Jan. 1 in which Thomas Foster of Muscatine was killed. 35 Counties DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The number of Iowa counties would be reduced from 99 to 35 under a bill introduced in the Iowa Senate Thursday by Sen. Michael Blouin, D-Dubuquc. Blouin would leave the state's eight largest counties as they are and group the remaining 91 into groups of two to four counties to make 27 counties. The bill would place the consolidation proposition on the 1974 general election ballot for those 91 counties. If the proposition passed, the consolidated county would elect a single slate of supervisors at the next general election. Those supervisors would then appoint all other county officers. If the consolidation propositions failed, the groups of counties would become joint county attorney districts. Tailgating CHEROKEE, Iowa (AP) Virgil Wentworth of Cherokee went to the police station here Thursday to report the theft of his small foreign car. While he was there, the culprit phoned in. A woman on the telephone told police: "You're not going to believe this but..." Then she explained that she had accidentally hooked bumpers with Wentworth's auto as she drove away from her parking spot. She towed his car three blocks, negotiating three turns before discovering why she was being followed so closely.

BY JOSEPH GABRIEIJSEN Graettinger, Iowa Although the sun shone brightly, the road south brought no milder temperatures. A good covering of snow about us kept the temperature in a deep freeze. From Santa Fe, New Mexico, the highway strikes off, more or less, in a westerly direction. We passed Alburquerque and stopped at Grants for the night. At the cafe for an early morning breakfast, we talked with a fellow traveler from Arkansas. He was driving to Hakersfield, California and a job. He and his wife were sitting at the table and drinking coffee only. He remarked that the midwest he had traveled was ice coated and treacherous; that he hoped he would nover travel such a precarious way again. To make their travel worse, a heater hose had burst sending steaming water all over the cab of their pickup. He lost his antifreeze but fortunately carried a supply with him. He plugged the hose connection and put in the new antifreeze. Hut now they were without heat and the temperatures were around the zero mark. They kept driving, nonstop. WE SYMPATHIZED with him and commented that he really had a bad experience. To prove we meant it, we offered to buy him and his wife a good breakfast. At this, the man stiffened and looked at us s tolly. We had said the wrong thing. "We don't sponge off anybody," he returned.

We hummed through Holdbrook and Winslow. Flagstaff, that unpredictable and stormy mountain pass was in the grip of winter but it presented no difficulties. Halfway between Flagstaff and Phoenix, Arizona, a subtle change was in the making. The air became balmy and wonder of wonders — like nature casting off a bedraggled old shoe — the snow began to disappear until, at last, it vanished entirely. Now the vegetation began to green lifting our spirits. As if a fairy had waved its wand, we were ushered into that area of southwest Arizona where the sun shines brightly and winter never comes. Appropiatcly, this area is called 'The Valley of the Sun'. Driving through Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa and Scottsdale, it was clear that The Valley of the Sun had stolen a march on California.

IT SKKMKD THAT about one out of twelve cars on the streets were from Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotahs, Nebraska and others. Many were buying plush homes and settling permanently. It was pleasant to see palm trees lining the streets which were also landscaped with .junipers, eunonymous, natal plum and other evergreen shrubs. Suddenly— even in one day— we had come from winter Into summer and from the cold into warm and glorious sunshine. Soon, we located Fountain St. and drew up before the home of Dr. and Faith Lefeber; Faith Is our daughter. One phase and goal of our journey ended. Our speedometer registered 2343 miles in the round about way from Graettinger, Iowa to Mesa, Arizona. The shadows from a setting sun began to lengthen as we stepped out of the car. It seemed as \t our bodies were still vibrating. After all, from Grants, New Mexico to The Valley of the Sun is no small distance. Surely, it was good to be here.
