The girl was found on the.bot- tom of a privately owned, fenced-in swimming pool at the Floyd Wagner residence at about p.m. According to Mar-Mac res- cue officers who were called to the scene, Mrs. Wagner, and her Wade, a second grader, discovered the girl at the bottom of the pool when they saw Robyn's younger sister, Henrietta, standing at the side of the pool sobbing, "My sister, my sister." Authorities said Mrs. Wagner and her son recovered the girl from the pool. Their cries of help were answered by a next door neighbor, Mrs. Larry Wei- gle, a registered nurse. She immediately began to apply various resuscitation techniques, including mouth to month resuscitation. The child was not breathing. The Mar-Mac rescue squad arrived on the scene as Mrs. Weigle was in the process of resuscitation. She reportedly did not know breathing had been restored until the rescuers told her. The rescue squad then trans- ported the girl, daughter of Linda Heins, to a Prairie du Chien hospital. She later was transferred to a LaCrosse hospi- tal where she was in critical condition Wednesday. Robert D. Ray and LI. Gov. Ar- thur Neu this fall. Lost by Stanley, who lost to Sen. Harold E.

Schaben, an outspoken critic of Ray's administration, called on voters to "reject" candidates who are nothing more than ai "feeble" echo of President! Nixon. The Dunlap Democrat, who defeated William Gannon of Mingo and Clark Rasmussen of West DCS Moines, promised a positive campaign that would restore "mutual trust and con- fidence between people and elected leaders." Grateful to Voters "I am grateful to the voters of Iowa for the confidence in me and I will do my best to be worthy of their said Schaben, who used an extensive media blitz in the final weeks ot the campaign to grab the nom- ination. Certain to be a key issue in the election will be the con- troversial consumer credit code bill signed into law by Ray ear- lier this week that doubled in- terest ceilings on revolving charge accounts. In conceding the election to Schaben, Gannon urged the sen ate leader to "speak out on the James Schaben issues of vital interests of the people of Iowa, issues like the 100 percent increase on interest rates." 1972 Campaign The Mingo farmer, who did not reveal !iis future political Charles Miller plans, was an unsuccessful gu- bernatorial candidate in the 1974 primary and lost to Neu in the 1972 lieutenant governor's race.
