Nasser Will Accept U* NL Resolutions By WILTON WVNN CAIRO (AIM—President Gamal Abdel Nasser says he is ready to accept a United Nations commission that would implement all U. N. resolutions relating to Israel and the Arabs—including the 1951 Security Council resolutions calling for freedom oi shipping in the Suez Canal. Nasser emphasizes, however, that resolutions applying to Israel must be carried out along with those affecting the United Arab Republic. These include the plan to give Palestine Arab refugees the right to return to their former homes in Israel or accept compensation, the 1947 plan for partition of Palestine and the internationalization of Jerusalem, which Israel has consistently rejected. He wants these implemented as well as the resolution ordering Egypt to allow Israeli shipping through the canal, "1? Israel accepts all U. N. resolutions, we will accept the Security Council resolution of 1951," Nasser said in a joint interview Wednesday with The Associated Press and the Christian Sciet\ce Monitor. He was asked if he has a concrete proposal for carrying out the resolutions. "I can say we are ready to accept a United Nations board or commission to put these resolutions into effect for both Israel and us," he replied. "But it would be unfair if only we are asked to implement the resolutions on GUY side while Israel does not implement those on her side." Nasser said such a board might be the old Palestine Conciliation Commission, established in 1949 to implement U. N. resolutions, or a new body. Although the Arabs have demanded implementation of U. N, resolutions in the past, this is the first time Nasser has proposed the use of a commission. Rhinoceros Is Best Vote-Getter in Brazil Election 6 T}m»* Herald, Carroll, la.

A PENNY FOR LUCK APPLETON, N. Y. <AP> — He walked by the same spot practically every day for 14 years, Allen Hyde said, but on the way to feed his chickens the other day he came upon a copper Canadian penny dated 1837. W^WWWlM • - ™^ Around the Rotunda Harrison Web»r, 1«wa Daily Press Assn. Writer DES MOINES - The size of "demand deposits" for the s ate has decreased $19,200,000 in the last year. ; For many years the stale has kept funds on demand deposit in banks scattered throughout Iowa. Since these funds could be recalled at a moment's notice they were non-interest bearing. Last spring the Council Bluffs, Nonpareil revealed a copyrighted story that the state was not drawing interest on millions of dollars. The legislature investigated and ordered state treasurer M. L. Abrahamson and state comptroller Glenn D. Sarafield to invest the maximum amount of state funds they thought possible without impairing the state's financial condition. About this time the treasurer called in $27,000,000 to be invested in securities. At the end of September the slate had $48,200,000 in Des Moines banks on demand deposit. None of the funds was in an out-in-state bank. All but aboxit $15,000,000, however, was either committed or had some federal tie-up and did not fall under Abrahamson's jurisdiction. Specifically Abrahamson had no control over $1,800,000 because of federal entanglements, and $2,800,000 in the Iowa Public employment Retirement System. There was also $18,200,000 in outstanding warrants. Officials in the comptroller's office said "this was a little bit of everything." Two of the larger items were homestead credits and road money. Sarsfield noted that road disbursements at this time of year are "very heavy." The comptroller said the state highway commission disburses between $2,000,000 and $4,000,000 each week this time of year because so many road coir- BUY FOR CASH OR EASY PAYMENTS AT HEITHOFFS HIGHWAY 30 FURNITURE STORE.

Sarsfieid said he did not advise investment of some $11,000,000 he- cause it would be needed shortly for the primary road fund. So, in actuality, the balance ol these non-interest bearing funds is $14.400,000. The comptroller pointed out that during September (ha amount of outstanding warrants ranged from $9,800,000 to $28,600,000. "Every penny of state money that can be safely invested is being invested," said State Treasurer Abrahamson. Sarsfield agreed. "I believe," the comptroller commented, "that investments made by the state treasurer at this time are at the maximum amount that is consistent with maintaining sufficient cash to meet the state's immediate foreseeable disbursements within the next 90 days." A year ago at this time the state had $67,400,000 on demand deposit as compared with $48,200,000 — or $19,200,000 less. Total investments a year ago amounted to $157,300,000 as compared with $180.200,000 today — an increase of $22,900,000. Five Year Program One of the major laws passed by the last legislature was that the Iowa Highway Commission adopt and publish a 5 year Construction program. Until recently the com- rnission has more-or-toss been operating on a year-to-year basis. Last spring the old highway commission drafted a 4 year program. Since 3 of the members were leaving the commission July 1, no formal action was taken on the 4 year program, which was based on sufficiency ratings for each district. It had been reported that the new commission would use sufficiency ratings for the state as a whole and not district-by-distvicl in drafting the 5 year program. Sufficiency ratings are used as a guide to determine the usability of each road. It now develops that the commission has decided to give the 195<) contract letting program top priority in its 5 year program. Since road funds have been cut back, it is likely that it will take more than one year to complete this program. The commission is still working on its 1958 letting program; not a dimo has been spent on the 1959 program. Although the 1959 letting program is not based on "straight sufficiency ratings for the state as a whole", the present commission felt it had a moral obligation to carry out this program since it had been officially approved by the previous commission. The 1959 letting program, of course, takes precedent in the 5 year program. After working that, into the long-ranged program, the commission is expected to fonow the straight sufficiency guide in making up the remainder of tlw program except for resurfacing previously widened roads. The new 5 year program will probably be presented before (li« commission sometime next month.
