A quickly formed industry committee based in New York has started a nationwide news* paper advertising campaign, seeking public support. The campaign may cost $1 million, one industry official said. In Washington, the industry's best known spokesman, the American Petroleum Institute, is trying to persuade the House Ways and Means Committee- to reconsider the action it took Monday when it voted to cut the most conspicuous of the industry's special tax advantages, the/depletion allowance, from 27% to 20 per cent. Join Forces Other industry associations, which have different views on some tax proposals, have started co-ordinating their lobbying efforts more closely. There also are indications that the trade groups representing oil and gas companies would be joined by the American Mining Congress, the biggest association of. hard minerals companies,, in battling the tax reform drive. "We're all on the same side of the street now," one oil industry representative said. The new lobbying effort is just getting underway and there has not been time for agreement on grand strategy. As one official of the petroleum institute put it: "We are still in a state of shock." The depletion provision is considered the central issue in the comprehensive tax reform bill now taking shape in the House committee. The 25-member body is nearing the end of its work which started in February. The^action which spurred the new oil industry activity was the 18-to-7 final vote by which OIL- .'"• Please turn to Page Nine Winds Push Cool Air Into State Gusty, northwest winds of K to 30 miles per'hour pushed cool, Canadian air into Iowa Sunday, creating a pleasant, almost spring-like day. .

Two cans of paint were found next to 'young Harms' body. Police said four additional cans of paint were found in the rear of the station wagon. Authorities confiscated a .22- caliber rifle from Brandt's rear ground floor apartment. Two bullet holes were found in the window screen of the bedroom which faces the rear alley where the body was found. Two spent shell casings were also found near the bedroom window. Brandt told police he first fired a warning shot, and then fired another shot, believed to have struck the youth. Authorities said a second youth is believed to have fled on foot after the warning shot was fired. He was described as white and wearing a light- colored shirt. Police said Sunday they have been unable to locate.the dead boy's parents or determine the boy's address. The body was taken to Dunn's Funeral Home. the attack occurred.

"The father yelled 'Oh God' and ran into the cage with another man, and between the three of them they got the boy out. Then the keeper was so mad, he began whacking the lions on their noses. "When they got the boy out, his hip pocket was all bloodied, and,he was crying like the devil — it wasn't for fun." •Elgin said children are customarily allowed to play with animate during "Adventure Day," but Kevin was "the only one to go into the lion cage. "At no time was the boy in any possible danger at all," said Elgin. All of the children who were scratched by the cougar were "all right.," Elgin said.

Too many men are assigned to some shifts while not enough are assigned to others, the study says, adding further that many officers are not being used to maximum potential. Manpower Shortage All of which leads to one conclusion: The manpower shortage on the Des Moines police force — undoubtedly real — would probably be less acute than it appears if available personnel was used more sensibly. "The Des Moines Police Department does not need a significant increase in the number of patrol officers to give a high level of police service," the report declares. "Sufficient numbers alone do | not provide the best protection. Officers must be well selected trained, and used intelligently with discretion. "We have found that the patrol strength of the department is not used to the best advantage and its full potential has not been realized because of the department's in- igneous rock, with individual mineral grains visible on its surface," said Dr. Elbert King, curator of the laboratory where the rocks picked up by the Apollo 11 astronauts are being examined.

(AP) — A group of demonstrators with signs calling for the resignation of Senator Edward M. Kennedy were pelted with eggs and firecrackers Sunday by a small gang of youngsters ranging in age from 7 to 17. Police said the incident occurred after the demonstrators completed their orderly protest parade about three blocks from the Kennedy residential compound. Kennedy in a national broadcast Friday night said he was asking Massachusetts voters to help him decide whether he should resign because of his auto accident in which a woman companion was killed. .The anti-Kennedy demonstrators carried homemade signs that read: "Youth for Truth Demand Resignation," "Can You Buy Justice?", "Tell the T r u t h, Ted", "Go Swim, Don't Run in 72".
