Honored Jane Schneberger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Schneberger, 1629 Tenth street NW, has been honored for academic achievement at Mary- crest college, Davenport. By Harrison Weber Iowa Dally Press Assn. DES MOINES A con- troversy has developed on whether churches should be ex- empt from paying a motor vehi- cle registration fee for buses they own. In an opinion issued several months ago, Assistant Attorney General Peter Voorhees said buses used to transport pupils to and from such things as Sunday school, business colleges, trade school or Bible college are not entitled to any exemption. Consequently the state safety department is attempting to col- lect the registration fee for these buses from churches and other affected groups. Charles Sinclair, director of the safety department's motor vehicle registration division, es- limales there may be "a couple hundred" church-owned buses involved. The department is attempting to collect for the last several years of registration fees. Sinclair said these fees may range from to a year depending upon the size of the Tom Riley (R Cedar bus. Sen. Rapids) plans to introduce legis- lation to exempt church buses used "exclusively for bona fide church functions and not for rent or hire to non church members or activities." Sen. Riley wants the provi- sions of the bill retroactive so that any church which has not paid the registration in the past will have it forgiven, and so that any church that has paid the registration will have an op- portunity to file for a refund. he might pay "anywhere from to He said the fee "is rare, but it's possible." Smith said driver's licenses don't indicate whether they have been filled out officially or illegally.

Fake Truce Proposal Sent by CIA Agent BANGKOK (AP) The U. S.jtion embassy admitted Saturday that an agent for the Central In- telligence Agency sent a false letter to the Thai government proposing a cease-fire with in- surgents. The letter was purported to have come from an insurgent leader, but government sources said the offer was never taken seriously because it was so in- consistent with previous Com- munist strategy. The embassy described the in- cident as a "regrettable unauth- orized initiative."

An Iraqi diplomat, Wissam Zahawie, said Fall's experience illustrated that "New York is not the most suitable place to serve as U. N. headquarters." Some countries have for years urged moving headquarters elsewhere. Better Off But a diplomat from the Neth- erlands, better off in New York than in his Arab-targeted home- land, told a reporter he saw "little reason for diplomats to be treated any different than anyone else." During the New Year week- end, he said, he waited in line for gasoline and then got only worth, about 3.5 gallons. Although the U. N. complex along the East River is an ex- tra-territorial enclave, the world organization has complied with New York City's, energy-con- serving measures. Thermostats have been lo- wered to 68 and Ihe lighting and fan systems carefully moni- tored, officials said. And since the energy crunch began, em- ployes said, they have noticed a marked dimming of lights in the corridors.

Auto club officials said not one of the Portland area's approxi- mately 800 service stations was pumping gas. The metropolitan area and the owners of its nearly reg- istered vehicles'have Been the hardest hit by a shortage that has made waiting in line for gasoline commonplace in Ore- gon. One Portland station operator said he counted 225 cars waiting for pump space at his establish- ment Friday in a line extending about three-quarters of a mile. Sid King of the Automobile Club of Oregon said oil company gasoline allocations to the state amount to 70 to 90 percent of 1972 levels. He said Oregon's estimated stations must bear an extra load because more than 500 stations have gone out of business in the last year, losing that many allocations. In the Portland area, it's dif- ficult or impossible to find a station pumping gas past noon. Most dealers exhaust self-im- posed daily rations within two or three hours after they open.
