Caetano handed over his job to Gen. Antonio De Spinola, the liberal-minded African war hero whom Caetano fired for saying Portugal could not win the seemingly endless African wars, the rebel armed forces announced. The announcement was made over loudspeakers outside the Carmo convent, headquarters of the para-military Republican National Guards where Caetano and some of his ministers had made a last-ditch stand against the snowballing movement of army protest. “Right now\ Premier Caetano is handing over tr.e reins of office to his successor, Gen.

It was the council’s seventh condemnation of a retaliatory Israeli raid into lebanon. The resolution also condemned “all acts of violence, especially those which result in the tragic loss of innocent civilian life.” But the council by a vote of 7-6 rejected an American amendment specifically including the attack at Qiryat Shmona in the condemnation. Israel’s delegation walked out of the council chamber just before the voting. Chief Delegate Yoscf Tekoah said the resolution was a ‘ gross miscarriage of justice” because it did not condemn the Palestinian guerillas. He warned again that (Continued. Page 3, Col. 7.) Subcommittee Rough on Cob Bill By Frank Nye DES MOINES - Theres something about a legislature that everybody should know: Don’t take your eyes off of it for a single minute because anything can happen — especially toward the tail end of a session. That s when all sorts of propolis are made and some even slip through almost unnoticed when one least expects it. Take a recent noon meeting of the house appropriations subcommittee on education, for example. It was called by Rep. Robert Kreamer (R-Des Moines), the chairman, to wind up last minute affairs since adjournment is looming dead ahead. Along toward the end of the meeting, Rep. Adrian Brinck (I) West Point), casually allowed as how it might be nice to give Iowa State university a hundred and fifty thousand bucks—that’s right, $150,000-to do some research on corn cobs. Brinck allowed that some folks seem to think something might result from researching corn cobs that would help to solve the energy crisis. The fact that the session has been in progress wnce last January and nobody has yet mentioned corn cob research didn’t seem to faze anyone at the moment. Not, at least, until Brinck mentioned that he understands there’s something about glucose in corn cobs that might help create more energy if w-e could just find out what it is. Rep. Glenn Brockott (R-Marshalltovvn) spoke up at this point, saying: “Theres nothing new about researching corn cobs. They’ve been doing it since back in thc time when I was in school. I remember they were using something in thc cobs to help make the plastic used for steering wheels for cars.” Since Brockett was in school at Iowa State back in the late 1920s and early ’30s, a lot of and because gasoline is no [chine gunning, of the demon-longer in short supply in most stators had occurred. !regions    The    rebels    said    “dangerous” Washington State police said police and Republican Guard el-thev issued 2,992 speeding tick- ements were holding out in the ets the first week in April, com- j sections.

Moreover, Brockett said, while they’ve developed some good things from the research, the facts are corn cobs are too light and bulky to do much with — if one may (Continued: Page 2, Col. I.)
