4 / DES MOINES REGISTER Thurs., Aug. 28, 1975 PEOPLE Inthintws Starbaams Joel Grey, Oscar winner as best-supporting actor for "Cabaret," moves from the wild west to Victorian England in his forthcoming movies. Grey, now costarring with Paul Newman in "Buffalo Bill and the Indians," will next appear in "The Seven-per-cent Solution" for Universal Pictures.

After nearly three decades as a performer, Rick Nelson finally will get a star in Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

The hoopla will happen Sept. 17, declared Rick Nelson Day by Los Angles Mayor Thomas Bradley. Perfectly clear Gov. Milton J. Shapp, Pennsylvania's quasi-candidate for president, finally made it perfectly clear why he had not yet offi- c i a 11 y an- n o unced his candidacy. After a taping in Phi ladelphia of public television's Black Perspective on the News MILTON which will be *HAPP broadcast Friday, Shapp,was asked whether his statement on the show that "I intend to run for president" meant that he was a candidate. "No," replied Shapp. "I'm still in that legal limbo. There is a lot of legal difference between being a candidate and not being a candidate. One of them is the free time you can get on radio and TV when you are not announced." Obliging It was getting late when C. Joseph Tracy's nominating petition to run for Bucks County, Pennsylvania, commissioner as an independent arrived at the courthouse in Doylestown. Tracy supporters began looking for a notary, to witness the petition, and when County Recorder of Deeds George Metzger walked by, they enlisted him as the notary. Metzger also is running for county commissioner. But he did notarize Tracy's petition. For the standard $1.50 fee, of course.

Dead Famed diet book author Dr. Irwln Maxwell Stillman, 79, of a heart attack, in Miami Beach, Fla. He advocated weight loss through avoiding all carbohydrates and eating instead high protein food and drinking large a m o unts of water. H i s theories were STILLMAN attacked by other physicians who said that such a lopsided diet could cause harmful effects. Retired Admiral Matthias B. Gardner, 77, commander of the U.S. Navy's Sixth Fleet during World War. II, in Pensacola, Fla. Death panalty Willie Lather Steelman, convicted earlier of killing nine persons in a California farm home, was sentenced in Tucson, Ariz., to death for murdering a Tucson couple. Steelman, 29, of Lodi, Calif., was convicted in July of first- degree murder in the deaths of Michael and Patricia Sandberg nearly 2 years ago. lowan AWOL 5 years? ^Ridiculous/ mother says By a STAFF WRITER "You've been AWOL (absent without leave) a long time," two military policemen told Larry Paulsen, 26, as they arrested him when he came ouj of a bean field near Ida Grove. Paulsen, who farms 500 acres, said in a telephone interview he assumed he'd been out of the Army legally for about five years. "I was very surprised when they showed up," he said. 1971 Discharge Paulsen, who was arrested on desertion charges Monday, thought he had received a hardship discharge in January of 1971, about three months before his two-year tour of duty was officially over. Paulsen declined further comment, but his mother, Mrs. Orville Paulsen of Ida Grove, said: "This is ridiculous, outrageous. There was a terrible foul-up. Thank God, I kept all the papers of our communications." Paulsen was taken to the Polk County jail in Des Moines to await a flight to Fort Leaven worth, Kan., for processing as a military prisoner. But, Paulsen's attorney obtained a federal court order to prevent the trip. A hearing to determine if the Army has jurisdiction over Paulsen was set for Sept. 11. He was released on $500 bond. Paulsen, who married two years ago and has a 10-month old daughter, came home on leave from West Germany in September of 1970, primarily to help his parents care for three younger children. Leave Extended Paulsen suffered a broken leg while trying to break in a colt and was granted an extension of his leave by Army officials. Because of illnesses and injuries to his parents, Paulsen then became involved in a bureaucratic attempt to get a hardship discharge. "The last word we got," Mrs. Paulsen said, "was from a Lieutenant Colonel Hattersby in the Pentagon. He said that boy is needed at home to take care of his family, (to) tell him to stay there. He (Hattersby) said he would handle everything." Paulsen said he assumed he was released from the Army and stayed in the Ida Grove area since then. Monday morning, Ida County Deputy Sheriff Fred Colshan accompanied two military policemen to the bean field. Colshan said Paulsen observed then: "I know I should have followed through and got my clearance papers. I didn't."

Address City State Zip_ 4 C.R, FIREMEN TREATED FOR ACID BURNS By WILLIAM SIMBRO M«f rtrtr H»ff WHttr CEDAR RAPIDS, IA. - Four firemen were treated Wednesday for burns received as they dealt with the spillage of up to 8,000 gallons of hydrochloric acid at the Corn Sweetners, Inc., plant here. , Fire department officials said Fireman Wayne Beuter was treated at a hospital for minor eye burns and was sent home. Capt. William Daugherty and Firemen Austin Rich and James Mullen were treated for skin burns and were able to return to the accident scene. Fire officials said a storage tank at the plant ruptured and some 8,000 gallons of hydrochloric acid spilled out on the ground. Arling K. Langhurst, vice-president of Corn Sweeteners, said she thought the amount spilled was somewhat less than that. Daugherty said later that his burns and those of the other men able to return to work were more similar to a sunburn than to burn from a fire. He said hydrochloric acid vapors act as a skin irritant. Fire officials said the firm had a supply of a neutralizing agent on hand and this was spread over the spillage. He said part of the spilled acid was hauled off to a dump and the rest was flushed away with water. Langhurst said Wednesday night that it hadn't been determined what caused the rupture in the storage tank. He said hydrochloric acid is used in the "conversion process in making syrup." CORPUS CHRISTI, TEX. (AP) - A federal judge Wednesday granted a preliminary injunction against Gulf Coast longshoremen who have refused to load grain for shipment to the Soviet Union. District Judge Owen Cox, who issued the ruling, set a hearing for Sept. 30 on a permanent injunction sought by shippers. Warner F. Brock, attorney for the International Longshoremen's Association, said he will appeal the ruling to the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, La., as soon as possible. Cites Food Prices AFL-CIO President George Meany called for the boycott last week, saying that American consumers must be protected from higher food prices that could result from the Russian grain sale. President Ford met Tuesday with Meany and other labor leaders but the session produced no solutions. Meany's reaction to the skull session was: "The situation has not changed in any respect except that we have more information and expect to continue discussions." Mr. Ford said the nation needs to make large sales of grain to foreign nations to improve the balance of payments. Strike continues DANVILLE, ILL. (AP)-A City Council return-to-work proposal has been rejected by a vote of 62-0 by municipal workers, including garbage collectors, and their strike entered the twenty-second day Wednesday.

COURT For Mora Information CALL 283-2717 End boycott of Soviet grain shipments, longshoremen ordered The Russians bought nearly 10 million metric tons of U.S. grain last month. (A metric ton is about 2,200 pounds.) Freifit Rate Dispute A key Issue-among maritime interests is the freight rates the U.S.S.R. will pay to ship the U.S. grain. The United States is trying to push the freight rates up to attract more U.S. competition for the business, therefore creating more jobs for maritime employes. Meany said that flour prices increased after last month's Soviet grain purchases and that the same thing occurred in 1972 following that year's Russian grain deal. "This is not going to happen again,"Meany said. Varying Estimates The domestic impact of massive grain purchases by foreign powers has produced varying estimates. Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz said Tuesday the grain exports will boost food prices about 1.5 per cent, but Federal Reserve Board Chairman Arthur Burns said food costs may jump as much as 2.5 per cent. Butz said longshoremen - are using the food-price issue as leverage to get bigger roles in sh'"iin<j the grain. "If they were really inter- ested in getting prices down, they would stop the feather* bedding that is so rampant in that organization," Butz Said. Negotiations Continue In Washington, U.S. and Soviet negotiators continued meetings on the number of American flagships to be used in the deliveries and the shipping rate the Russians will pay. Final agreement is expected by Friday, although one Commerce Department source cautioned: "We also thought it was going to be wrapped up last The Russian negotiators reportedly indicated they will ship more than one-third df the grain cargoes in U.S. bottoms and agreed to pay higher shipping rates than they would normally be charged for the use of foreign-based vessels. Both issues are crucial to ending the longshoremen's boycott. The U.S.-Soviet discussions are to resume this morning.
