However, he raised doubts if such expropriations are in the best interests of lesser developed nations who may need foreign investments. The U.S. has doubts about the actions taken in the U. N. general assembly by a coali- tion of Arab and so-called Third World nations concern- ing South Africa and Israel. He said debates In the general assembly "should be related" in some extent to the merits of the issues and not just reflect political alliances. He has seen nothing to in- dicate an Egyptian change of mind that the Middle East peace efforts should follow the. American formula of a step- by-step negotiations. He Is "reasonably confident" that the understandings reached with the Soviet Union on easing restrictions Soviet Jews will be carried out.1' The visit next year by President Ford to mainland China will be another step toward normalizing relations between Washington and Peking. However, Kissinger did not answer when asked what effect the Ford trip would have on American relations with the Nationalist regime on Taiwan. Wayne Arthur Rife of Mt. Vernon Dies at 65 MT.

Derailment Spills Grain Shipment ANKENY (UPI) Crews were working Saturday night to clear 10 derailed cars of a Chicago Northwestern freight train from U. S. 69 south nf here. Authorities reported the cars containing grain went off the 150-year-old tracks late Satur- day afternoon, blocking all traffic traveling along the highway. Railroad workers with vacuum machines were called to the scene to sweep up the spilled grain and clear other debris. Officials said two of the 10 hopper cars tipped over and the others remained upright. No injuries were reported and officials said the grain was being transferred lo other hopper cars. A railroad official blamed the poor shape of the old tracks for the derailment. Pearl Harbor Date Observed PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (UPI) Navy men stopped their chores and stood with ,-their heads bowed in a mo- ment of silent prayer Saturday at the exact moment of the surprise Japanese attack 33 years ago. The military remembered Dec. 7, 1941, the date Presi- dent Franklin D. Roosevelt said would "live in with an observance at the gleaming Arizona Memorial, built over the sunken battle- ship where more than men remain entombed. The ceremony was made more poignant by the ship- yard's siren signaling a.m., the beginning of the mo- ment of prayer when the first bombs fell in the attack that plunged the U.S. into World war II. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Dec. 8, from 1'aKC Cheers for McGovern Teleohoto Democratic National Committee Chairman Robert Strauss (right) in- troduces Sen. George McGovern to a wildly-cheering Democratic mid-term convention. McGovern, who led the Democrats to their disastrous defeat in 1 972, received a roaring three-minute ovation at the opening of the conven- tion's second session. Lawmaker Sees Repeat of '72 (Continued from Page 1.) accompanying story for de- It was Rep. Joe Waggoner of Louisiana who told convention delegates they would be head- ing toward another 1972 if they accepted the compromise lan- guage. Iowa delegates played a prominent role'throughout the convention in working for the compromise language and in leading the way toward a more open party. However, they were (in the losing side ,in three other at- tempts to'change the charter two of them on roll-call votes. The lowans voted 26-3 in favor of an amendment to make .fu- ture mid-term conventions, like the present one, manda- tory. But the convention voted down the amendment, l.OOH-823. Using Side A second attempt to ac- complish the same goal found Iowa on the losing side on a voice vote. Hard to convince, those who want mid-term con- ventions mandatory, came back with a third amendment to order one held in with .future mid-term conventions optional after that. Iowa voted 25-4 for this amendment but it lost, 968-851. The Iowa delegates were on the winding side in turning down another amendment which was designed to give larger states and conservative forces more representation on the Democratic National Commit- tee. They also voted with' the majority in amending the charter lo require all meetings of the national committee, and other official party commit- tees, to be open to the public with secret ballot votes prohibited. Young Democrats The convention voted to per- mit Young Democrats to name two members to the national committee at their convention in addition to the YD national president, who already sits on that body. Iowa voted against this on grounds that many states do not have YD or- ganizations since the younger people prefer lo work In the main party itself. The convention ends Sunday with little business left lii transact after Saturday's marathon session, which start- ed at a.m. and lasted until p.m. There wasn't even a luncheon or dinner break for the accredited delegates. Instead, they munched sand- wiches, potato chips, apples and grapes, washed down with coffee or soft drinks while they considered changes in the proposed charter. Twice the hall took on a na- tional convention atmosphere as delegates cheered Senators Hubert Humphrey and George McGovern, their respective 1968 and 1972 presidential can- didates. '.Sanford, chairman of the Democratic Charter Commis- sion, was at the rostrum when Humphrey took his seat witli the Minnesota delegation. Standing Ovation Sanford spotted the former vice-president and introduced him with the comment that the United States would have been better off today had he been elected President six years ago. This brought the.cheering delegates to their feet for one of the most enthusiastic res- ponses since the convention opened Friday. Meanwhile, two members of Iowa's congressional delega- tion Congressman Neal Smith of the Fourth district and Congressman elect Tom Harkin of the Fifth expressed concern over the convention's action in adopt- ing, by voice vote, a sweeping economic policy resolution before adjourning Friday night. two other congressmen, Ed- ward Mczvinsky of the First and John Culver of the Second, Sen. Dick Clark of Iowa, had some reservation but favored'the resolution. All are members of the stale's delega- tion to this convention. The resolution put the party on record for an expanded public works program to reduce unemployment; for tax reduction and reform; for revival of the Reconstruction Finance corporation lo help faltering private businesses with loans; for "across-the- board" wage-price controls, for tightening anti-trust laws and Iheir .enforcement, for an independent board to ad- minister emergency economic controls; for a mandatory sys- tem of energy conservation, and for national health in- surance. Also included in the resolu- tion were endorsements of Democratic congressional goals for consumer protection and no-fault insurance. Smith Comment. Smith, dean of Iowa congressional Democrats, expressed particular concern about the wage-price control section, saying: "The one we had caused prices higher lhan they would have been otherwise. It penalized those trying lo hold profit margins down and rewarded those that had the biggest margins. That usually works for a few months but in the long run it catches up, forcing those with low margins out of business. Controls won't work as a permanent program." Harkin; who'll take Republican Congressman William Scherle's sent next month, added that controls are "psychologically bad" in that adoption of the resolution calling'for them by this con- vention gives the impression congress is going to follow through. This, in turn, he explained, is followed by price increases in preparation for the day they may be by controls. Senator Clark said "1 generally, support the resolu- tion goals it sets out although I am not for everything in it." Facing Issues Mex.vinsky said "I don't know whether Ihe resolution is a perfect answer but it is at least an attempt by our party to face up to the economic is- sues at home. sets a foundation and gives us a base to move from but 1 don't consider my vote for it to put us into a lockcd-in .position." Culver commented that it is "imperative that the Democratic majority in congress develop a strong and effective economic agenda to meet Ihe current crisis and general economic conditions, as well as the dangerous deficiencies of presidential leadership." He said the program "cons- titutes a useful framework for development of an appropriate congressional program to deal specifically with this overrid- ing issue." hall leapc'd to their feel, cheering Chairman Strauss and charter commission chair- man Terry Sanford, a former North Carolina A number of spfceches stressed the need for unity. "We are prepared in a spirit of harmony lo support this said black state Sen. Cecil Partee of Illinois, a stalwart of Mayor Daley's Chicago organization. Daley smiled, applauded and accepted a handshake from black civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, one of his most bitler local rivals. And Baltimore Council- woman Barbara Mikulski said, "It preserves the integrity" of the commission she headed which developed the 1976 rules. Original Effort The compromise was for- mally presented by Gov, An- derson of Minnesota, chairman of the Democratic governors .who last month drafted the original effort to prevent a blowup ''at the party's unprecedented midterm meet- ing. "We feel it is in the best interest of this party, and we feel it sustains our position against quotas while commit- ting us to the strongest affir- mative action in the Anderson declared. But Albert Shankcr of New York, president of the American Federation of Teachers, charged that "they capitulated for only one reason, there was a threat of a walkout." Sharply Limit That threat came from a number of black delegates, fearful that the original provision would sharply limit Iheir effectiveness in future credentials challenges. Dis- sident leaders included Rep. Ronald Dellums of California and Earl Craig of Minnesota, head of the national commit- tee's black caucus. The compromise specifically removes language which said a delegation's composition could not be used as "prima facie" 'evidence of bias or to make a state party bear the burden of proving riondiscriminatioh. But it retained a provision declaring that, if a stale followed an affirmative action plan approved by (he national party, a challenge could 'Viol be based solely on a delegation's numerical composition or the result of primary election.
