New Afghan Regime Looks To Economic Development KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) When President Mohannad Daoud of Afghanistan staged a military-backed coup a year ago to topple his cousin King Zahir Shah from the throne, his justification was widespread corruption and a tottering economy. Now. one confirmed and two rumored counter coups later, the new republican regime believes il has firm enough control of the levers of power to start directing most of ils energies to getting the country moving again. "You could say the new government spent the first eight months consolidating ils power, but now the whole thrust is toward economic development." said one of- ficial. The mam problem confront- ing the landlocked Texas-size nation, listed by the U. N. as one of the six poorest on earth, is not so much a shortage of development capital as an inadequate bureaucracy I hat lacks adequate machinery for gathering the basic informa- tion necessary to plan ahead. I'npulalion Vague For instance Ihe lolal population is undetermined, with estimates ranging from aboul III lo IK million. Nor is an accurate figure for Hie gross national product available. Following Daoild's coup. one of the nation's three major exports. The devaluation of the U. S. dollar also a favora- ble factor in achieving a balance of payments surplus. As far as the man in the street is concerned, the main success of the regime has been lo curb inflation by stabilizing the prices of such vital com- modities as oil. kerosene, cooking oil. cotton textiles. sugar and coal through government subsidies. Good rice and wheat harvests meant the government did not have to spend valuable foreign exchange importing them when international prices were high. The government recently in- troduced its first one-year economic plan for 1974-75 in which it estimates a total eminent investment of about million, some 43 percent of which will be ac- counted for by foreign aid. Agriculture, industry, trans- purl. communications and social services will be the main benefactors. Outside Aid Private investment is ex- pected to perk up now the government has made clear il welcomes a limited private sector in the economy. Meanwhile. Ihc regime is actively seeking outside economic aid from wherever it can find ll ill line with ils partly engineered by a group of foreign policy of iion-align- young Hussiaii-lrained of- incut. sup- Ihe ficers. there were arrests, dis- missals and Iransfers al all levels of goveriimenl. which resulted in economic aclnily in both Ihe public and prnalo sectors grinding almost lo a standstill for a lime Despile these laclors it has not been a dcsperale year economically for Ihe coiinlry In Ins firsl anniversary speech .Inly IB.

State Official: "Hard Look" at Dubuque Marina DUBUQUE (UPI) Stall Health Commissioner Normal! Pawlewski said Monday 1m agency would "take a hard look" at the conditions at Mas- sey marina south of here which possibly resulted in an outbreak of shigellosis. Pawlewski said he was ad- vised by his staff that Ihi number of cases "they an experiencing this year is nol much different than what they experienced in past years." However, he said the state agency is cooperating with the Dubuque county health depart- ment to investigate probable causes and secure information. The county departmen recommended that swimming and water skiing be banned for a nine-mile stretch from the southern seel ion of Dubuque to the county-operated marina. "We are working very closely with the local health department and getting some information from water samples and river samples. We want to gel some information and lake a hard look at the Massey area lo see if the river is contaminating Massey or Massey is contaminating the river." said Pawlewski. He said, however, that the IS cases reported by Ihe county board was nut abnormal for this time of year. "It's a na- tural time of Ihe year, not only for Dubuque. but for other metropolitan areas." Paw- lewski said. He said "the fact that many of the people gelling shigellosis have been al the Massey marina makes yon wonder whether or not it's normal or abnormal. There is a question whether il is Ihe area itself or a condilion of Potato Chips Potato chips were created by an American Indian, (ieorge ('rum, while employed as a chef at Saratoga Springs, N.Y., in 1853.

AUK. 6, 1971 9 Clarence-Lowden Budget Mill Rate the Same Court Affirms Canine Used as Crime Weapon BOSTON (AP) The Mas- sachusetts appeals court has concurred with a lower court ruling that a dog can be con- sidered a "dangerous weapon" if il appears capable of inflict- ing serious bodily harm. The ruling on Wednesday came on an appeal by Michael Tarrant. of Boston, who was sentenced lasl year to 10 lo 211 years in prison for armed rob- bery. In the 15173 trial, the court was lold thai Tarrant robbed David Weinberg and threa- tened the victim with his Ger- man shepherd. Tarrant's attorney argued thai the dog was not a "dangerous weapon" and that conviction of armed robbery required a finding thai the ac- cused possessed an instrument dangerous in fact, not merely in appearance. Appeals court Justice David Rose ruled thai "the threa- tened use of an apparently dangerous weapon is sufficient to make" (he offense more serious than simple robbery. Il is common knowledge lhat dogs can be instructed to at- tack persons on command. Rights Leader Pickets Eagles MII.WAl'KKIv Wis. (ITU The Rev.

Blouin Hits Riley for Campaign Finance Stand DUBl'Ql'E Stale Sen Michael Blouin, Dubuque Democrat, told supporters Monday his Republican op- ponent for Second district congressman voted against campaign finance reform in the 1973 Iowa legislative ses- sion. Blouin noted thai State Sen. Tom Riley was reported to have pledged, at a Riley-fnr- congress fund-raising dinner lasl Friday, thai he will push for a law limiting campaign contributions if he is elected. Blouin declared Riley voted against an income tax check- off amendment permitting taxpayers to channel SI of their stale income lax to the party of their choice. The Democratic candidate said the check-off system, now in effect despile Riley's "no" vole, "was a giant step toward reducing future needs for large private contributions or per- sonal wealth in political cam- paigns in this stale. "II was disappointed at the time that Mr. Riley could nol support the check-off amend- ment and it raises doubts now about the type of campaign reform legislation he might support in Washington."
