Say What? At 7 am! P RANK MILLER, The DCS Moiries Register's cartoonist, is not an early riser; he's not & lag-a-bed, mind you, but he's not an early riser. " fhus a 7 a.m. telephone call the other mornihg /ound him sleeping the sleep of the just, tie roused himself and picked up the phone, half afraid of bad news. "Hello," he said: "Why ain't Maggie and Jiggs •Frank Miller If.They'd Only Told Him in the paper no more?" an old man's voice asked at the other end of the line. Frank turned the question .over in his mind sluggishly before deciding not to violate Federal Communications Commission rules on what can and can't be said over telephone lines. "I suppose it's because the guy who drew it is dead," he said. "Who drew it?" the voice came back. "George McManus." _ "Oh," said the voice. "Much obliged." And he hung up. Frank did the same and turned over in bed. He had just about coasted back to sleep when the phone rang again. He picked up the receiver. "How do you spell McManus?" the same voice said. • _ TrrtpfZ!r OYTVU" "~t?Vi? f^~K'\t a o **- PIn.*fi* \j j? vrtiv* TOONING THEY DON'T TEACH YOU ABOUT IN ART SCHOOL. * * * ' A FRIEND WENT on a canoeing trip down the Shell Rock River last week.

WEIGH TRUCKER AID IN CHICAGO WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) Trucking industry officials met here Tuesday, a Chicago representative said, to consider a subsidy plan to aid Chicago area carriers crippled by a 5- week strike-lockout of , 50,000 drivers. Striking Teamsters Union members in Chicago and other cities are demanding pay raises 50 per cent higher than X pr0" vided in a tentative national contract. Subsidy Plan Ted N. Anastos, chief counsel For a Chicago truckers group, said officials of Trucking .Employers, Inc. (TEI), collective bargaining agent of the nation's carriers, met'in Washington to weigh the subsidy proposal. A decision by TEI board of Ulrectors is not expected until Thursday, he said. Anastos, spokesman for the Cartage Exchange of Chicago, a trucking employers' group, said the plan is similar to those adopted by the airline and railroad industries when they were hit by selective strikes. Voting by Mail Teamster locals around the country are in the midst of a mail referendum on whether to accept their national contract which calls for wage increases of $1.10 an hour over three years. Under the contract which expired Mar. 31, drivers average about $4.15 an hour. Chicago Teamster locals and an independent * union, which bargain separately from the national talks, are demanding $1.65 an hour over 39 months.

Minorities ts predecessor, docked before it By Jack Hovelson (Register Staff Writer) CEDAR FALLS, IA. - The ircsident of the University of Northern Iowa says he will ask the State Board of Regents next week to approve a plan for establishing a culture house for minorities on the UNI campus. Dr. J. W. Maucker said he will propose that a house presently occupied by Dr. William Lang, UNI vice-president for academic affairs, be used for the facility. Dr. -Lang-is- retiring from the post- this summer to return to teaching at the university. Dr. Maucker said Tuesday that a drive to raise $10,000 to furnish the cultural house will be .conducted in Cedar Falls and Waterloo. The university would provide, in addition to the building, funds for its maintainance and salaries for a staff. Student activity fees would pay operating expenses. The house, said Dr. Maucker, initially will be a center for A f r o-Americans, Mexican- Americans and American Indian' cultures. The UNI Afro- American Society would manage tfic center for a year, at which time, the operation would be reviewed. A 17-hour sit-in ~a't~ DrT Maucker's home, located a half block from the vice-president's house, occurred in March < when members of the Afro-American Society sought Dr. Maucker's written commitment that Dr. Lang's* home could be used for the cultural center when it was vacated. Dr. Maucker refused to make that commitment under pressure from the students, eight of whom were later notified they would be disciplined by the university for the sit-in. Al subsequent disciplinary hearings for them, groups of students demonstrated in protest against barring the public from the sessions. The demonstrations led to seven-day jail sentences for 28 persons, all but two of them UNI students, for violating a court injunction that barred disruptions of the hearings. Flees to West by ^StabbingPilot VIENNA, AUSTRIA (REU TERS) — A Czech mining offi cial fled to the west Tuesday when he forced a small plane to land in Austria by repeatedly jabbing the pilot with a pocke knife and knocking out the only other passenger. The pilot, Pavel Bidermann, 30, of Prague, made an emergency landing at Linz, Austria despite considerable loss "ol blood. He was hospitalized. The hijacker, Pavel Vcrner, 32, who left his wife and two children in.Prague, said he decided to flee after he was mistakenly arrested as an enemy of the"state last year. He asked for political asylum in Austria and was charged with assault coercion, wounding Approves Liquor Store __ * Brand, Price Booklets the days may be coming to an end when you had to stalk the aisles of state liquor stores, or stand in line to stare at store price lists, to find out what's available. You might be able to let your fingers do the walking. Atty. Gen. Richard Turner ruled Tuesday that it would be legally okay to distribute publications in state liquor stores that would include the brands available and the prices. The publications, Turner said, would be "similar in purpose to the yellow pages of a telephone directory." Customers still would have to go to state stores to make their liquor purchases. But, for the first time, they'd be able to take home a list telling them'What they would find at the stores and how much various brands cost. Turner was asked by William J. Yost, law enforcement director of the Iowa Liquor Control Commission, for a legal opinion on whether list and price booklets could be distributed free in state stores. Yost told Turner the booklets would be published by a private firm, with publishing costs borne by liquor advertisements. Turner held that the plan wouldn't conflict with Iowa law so long as the published list itself "would not emphasize any one brand over another, 'in black type' or cither- wise, except that advertisements would be included in the publication separate and apart from the list." Turner also said the advertising could not include; the code number or price of a brand being promoted, although this information would be. in the TOMATOES ' All summer hybrids 6 plants for 79c Rutger* «nd Jubilee 5»cperpak Beeweak *nd fantastic .79cperp«k Hybrid 88c per pak GERANHIH$-69c EACH!

" Black Hawk County Sheriff Robert Aldrich said the boy passed a tractor and hit an oncoming car driven _by Mrs. Maryls Mitchell, 28, of Buckingham. Aldrich said no charges were filed. The accident occurred about 6:15 p.m. OVERRULE BAD CHECK VERDICT By Larry Fruhling A bad check conviction was overturned Tuesday by the owa Supreme Court because he district court judge who presided at the original trial displayed "obvious hostility" toward the defendanfc- The Supreme Court ordered a new trial for Jariies B. Kim- lall, who was convicted by a lardin County District Court ury-flf-false-drawing-and utter^ ing of>fc check. Kimball, identified in court records as a rural Garden City resident, was sentenced to 'seven years. Reversing the conviction in a unanimous ruling, the Supreme ^ourt said District Judge Ed J. Kelley's remarks to Kimball in 'ront of the jury prejudiced Kimball'sj-ight to a fair trial. "The trial court's remarks revealed his irritation with defendant and his obvious hostility toward him," said Supreme Court justice William Stuart, who wrote the high court's opinion. "Although thefe is no claim the hostility was displayed subsequently, this attitude may have permeated the whole trial and affected the jury's action on the case," Justice Stuart wrote. "It may have jeooard- zed the presumption of in nocence to which defendant is entitled." Stuart said there may have been "some justification" for Judge Kelley's "obvious irritation" with Kimball, "but he should not have displayed this hostility before the jury panel." Kimball was accused of writing a $10,475 check to the Eldora Livestock Sales Barn, on May 1, 1968, to cover the pur chase of 53 head of cattle. Court records showed that officers of the Security State Bank in Radcliffe refused to honor the check, saying Kimball's account lacked the funds to cover it. The exchange between Kimball and Judge Kelley apparently took place because Kimball showed up for his trial without a lawyer. The district court transcript showed this exchange after Kimball returned to the courtroom after talking with his lawyer by telephone; "The court: This case is going to be set for trial._JL T61d~ME~Wilion (Kimball's" lawyer) and I am telling you in front ofN^hese jurors that this case is going to be set for trial at 9:3(KWednesday morning. That is theN^ghth of January. Fail not ai\your peril. Do you understand? "Mr.-Kimball: No, I didn't hear you. "The court: Fail not at your peril. , "Mr. Kimball: Oh, I will be here. "The court: You are going to be tried, I will tell you that, whether you have counsel or not." In connection with the Kimball case, the Supreme Court said that Iowa judges, in their instructions to jurors, should no longer include rules on a defendant's failure -to testify in his own behalf unless the defendant requests such an instruction. The high court said the instruction often tends-to draw the attention of the jury to the fact a defendant had said nothing in his own behalf. Kimball's conviction was-not reversed on this point, but the{court said such unrequested instructions will be grounds for reversals in the future.
