VOLUME 92 NUMBER 17 CITY FINAL 10 CENTS CKDAH HANDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES DELAY 63 Killed in Smashup of Turkish Jet IZMIR, Turkey (AP) A Turkish jetliner with 73 persons aboard crashed and exploded into flames Saturday shortly after takeoff from Izmir's mili- tary airport. Sixty-three persons were killed, the airline reported. Two of the dead were identi- fied as Dr. and Mrs. Horace Gerade of Tenafly, N.J. They were on a vacation tour. Most of the survivors were in critical condition, the airline said. An infant boy, wrapped in a blanket, survived the crash and blaze with minor scratches, airport police said. The plane, a Dutch-made Fokker 28 in service only six months, was carrying 68 passen- gers and a crew of five on a flight from this Aegean port to Istanbul. According to airport sources, it rose about 450 feet and then suddenly crashed onto the run- way. It burst into flames imme- diately, trapping most of those on board. The military field was used because the city's commercial airport is undergoing repairs. The survivors, including a ste- wardess, were rushed to the state hospital of Izmir. The crash cause was being in- vestigated by military experts and airline officials who rushed to the scene, including the director general of the Turkish airline. Sources said they su- spected engine problems. The weather was good. It was the worst disaster in the history of Turkish civil avia- tion and the airline, which has been noted for its good safety record. Say Shultz Will Resign New York Times News service NEW YORK Friends of George Shultz say he will re- sign as secretary of the trea- sury by April 1. The only member of the origi- nal Nixon cabinet still in the ad- ministration is "damned tired" after five years in Washington, one associate said. Shultz was appointed sec tary of labor in 1969. A year later he became the first direc- tor of the Office of Management and Budget. He was named treasury secretary in 1972. Two Can Play At That Game DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) -Al Romero, cafe operator, be- lieves turnabout is fair play. In Arizona, some gasoline dealers require customers to make appointments to get fuel. In a newspaper ad Friday, Romero had this advice for gasoline dealers: "Booze and beer filled only by appointment to all service station operators. For appoint- ment, call between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m." Romero's cafe is closed dur- ing those hours. Controls Off 18 Percent of Steel Output WASHINGTON (AP) The Cost of Living Council has re moved price controls from about IB percent of steel in dustry production, a move thai could lead to higher prices al the consumer level. It also granted steel compa nies a price increase of less than 0.5 percent, which is ex peeled to bring in an additiona million per year. The increase was the third approved by the govcrnmcnl this year for the steel industry Together the boosts permil companies to raise prices percent, for a total of mil- lion. Companies had sought in- creases of 7.07 pei-eent, totaling billion, for the same period. Key Action Edgar Speer, chairman of U.S. Steel, said: "The council's ac- tions strongly suggest its inabili- ty to comprehend what is re- quired for the viability of the domestic steel industry and it ability to serve the needs of the American economy." But the key action Friday was a decision to remove all price controls on products whose an- nual sales do not exceed million annually. The council said product; qualifying for this exemption include much of the production of steel pipe and tube, steel wire products and electro-metallur- gical products. If steel companies raise their jrices sharply on these prod- ucts, the increases eventually could be passed along to coii- umers. Individual Items The council also removed re- strictions on price increases on ndividual products, although the total increase for all products may not exceed the percentage increase approved by it. Previously a company could not increase prices on an indi- vidual item more than 10 per- cent above the basic percentage increase allowed by the council. Council Director John T. Dun- lop said the actions are de- signed to provide incentives to steel companies to increase manufacture of products needed in the petroleum and mining in- dustries, construction and agri- culture. There have been complaints of shortages of such items as reinforcing bars for construc- tion, roof bolts for mining, steel pipe for petroleum production and baling wire for farm use. Mansfield: Would Back DST Repeal WASHINGTON (UPI) Sen- ate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said Saturday that year-round Daylight Saving time "hasn't worked out" and he would support a congres- sional move lo repeal Eight Florida congressmen backed by Gov. Reubin Askew have called for repeal. They blamed morning darkness for the traffic deaths of eight Flori- da school children. Mansfield said, "I don't be- lieve it (DST) has saved any- thing in energy."

Democrats Ask Congress-Nixon Partnership To Tackle Energy WASHINGTON (AP) Dem- ocratic congressional leaders called. Saturday, for a part- nership between congress anc President Nixon to solve the na- :ion's energy problems. Rep. John J. McFall (Calif.) wuse Democratic whip, speak- ng for the leadership in re- p o n s e to Nixon's energy address to the nation a week ago, said congress has been iroviding the initiative so far in efforts to deal with fuel short- ages. "Throughout most of last year .he administration appeared to ircfer talk to said Mc- a nationwide radio address. "We are gratified to note that the administration is to join with congress in a creative and cooperative ap- proach to this problem." Emergency Act McFall said many of the mea- sures outlined by Nixon in his address and a special energy message to congress Wednesday are contained in the Emergency Energy Act on which congress is 'cheduled to take final action next week. "The administration and the >il companies delayed final con- lideration of this bill until now jecause they opposed some pro- dealing with law- ;uits on windfall profits, diselo- lurc of energy resources and congressional review of the 'resident's he said. McFall said energy matters lave dominated the work of the 28 lommittees in the house and '3rd congress so far, ienate devoting more than 500 lays to hearings on energy- claled issues. Long Passed Although critical of what he called past inaction by the ad- ministration, he said the time has long passed for assigning blame for ithe. energy, "What is needed are responsi- ble and realistic proposals that meet the he said. "The Democratic congress, with the support of many of its Re- publican colleagues, is provid- ing many of the answers. "The President is asking the cooperation of congress. This he shall have. And in return we in congress expect that same coop- eration from his administra- tion." Discrepancy In Figures on Oil Output WASHINGTON (UPI) With U. S. stocks of crude oil report- ed at a six-year low, the Feder- al Energy Office says it has dis- covered a discrepancy in the oil ndustry's weekly production 'igurcs. The FEO said Friday that its :igures on crude oil output differ by more than 1.1 million larrels a day from industry fig- ures for the week ending Jan. FEO officials said they have not determined the reason fori .he "major but David Oliver, acting chief of oil ind gas statistics, said there night be a statistical error in ndustry figures daling back to T previous period. "Biggest in 30 Years" It was "the biggest discrepan- cy in my 30 years of dealing vith the Oliver said. The American Petroleum In- stitute, representing the in- dustry, said 14. of .the iCreport- ing companies "verified the ac- curacy of the data submitted to us." The API said it will share that information with the FEO and will try to determine why there was a serious drop in crude stock during the week in question. The industry said there was n 8.6-million barrel weekly drop, but the FEO said it should we been only barrels.

Judge Asks Nixon Explain Tapes Stand WASHINGTON (AP) A fed- eral judge has asked President Nixon to state publicly why he opposes turning over five sub- poenaed tapes to the senate Wa- .ergate committee. U.S. District Judge Gerhard Resell ruled Friday that Nixon's claim of executive privilege "is too general" and is outdated by court rulings that led to surren- der of most of the same tapes to the Watergate prosecution. Gesell threw out a subpoena the committee issued for all documents of 25 White House and Nixon re-election aides bearing on Watergate matters. "Too Vague" The judge said the subpoena looking into Ihe possibility impe.aching .the President.... They were outvoted by Ihe Democratic majority.
