The bill directs the depart- ment of agriculture to base emergency assistance payments through the agricultural stabili- zation and conservation service on the total corn "creage plant-j, ed, he said, "Without such he, said, "fanners disaster assis-1 tance would be based on an ar- tificial, arbitrary acreage allot- ment established for each pro- ducer." Youth Apprehended in Bowling Alley IOWA CITY A juvenile was taken into custody early Friday morning by Iowa City police after he was discovered in the Colonial Lanes bowling alley with approximatley in his poessession which he is believed to have taken from a number of j s I R com boxes.

Dick Clark told the senate in urging support of the child and family services act. The bill "would establish and expand children and family service programs, build upon the experience of Head Start, give special emphasis to preschool children and families with the greatest needs and provide for direct parent the Iowa Democrat explained. Clark pointed out child care facilities have been provided on a large-scale basis at times when their mother's labor was considered critical as in line na- tional defense during both world wars. "But when the wars he said, "federal funding ended and most day care centers were forced to close their doors. "According to the latest esti- mates, care in licensed centers and family homes is available today for only about chil- dren, but several million young- sters need this service. "The sad result of a lack of aod, reasonably priced day care facilities is a large num- !ber of 'latch-key 'children' cared for by themselves. There are too many children left alone for long periods of time or left umvatched to explore as chil- dren do, exposing themselves to accidents or even death. This country has an obligation to cor- rect this situation." IlC Cellar- llnpitU by The GoTcllc Co. ana pumlsned aollv and Sunday at 500 Third ove. SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52406.
