Waterloo Daily Courier (Newspaper) - October 28, 1971, Waterloo, Iowa MINUTE Woman, showing well-dented car to garageman: "The fender's been acting up again." Established in 185S -4 Bill ...The Severin Politics With 1-380? A group of nearly 100 people from 10 northeastern Iowa counties who met at Oelwein the other night to whip up support for routing proposed Interstate Highway 380 from Cedar Rapids to Waterloo via an Inde- pendence dogleg of course have a perfect right to advance what they believe to be the interests of their respective com- munities. But there were aspects, of this meet- ing that were disturbing. Three of the ring leaders were State Senator Tom Riley, Cedar Rapids, who chaired the meeting; State Senator Clifton Lamborn, Maquoketa, who was listed as co chair- man; and State Senator John Walsh, Dubuque. AT FIRST GLANCE anyone familiar with Iowa geog- raphy would wonder what interest Sen. Lamborn, a resi- dent of Jackson County, or Sen. Walsh a resident of Du- buque County, could have in the specific routing of 1-380. Take a look at an Iowa map and it would appear to be inconceivable that anyone from Jackson County, located on the Mississippi River almost due east of Cedar Rapids, 'or anyone from Dubuque County to the north, would find occasion to travel on 1-380, no matter which of the three routes is selected. So why the great interest by Sen. Lamborn and Sen. Walsh? To find an answer to this question you might con- sider the fact that both of these gentlemen, along with Sen. Riley, have exhibited an interest in seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Congressman from the 2nd District. THIS CONGRESSIONAL seat is now held by John Culver, Cedar Rapids Democrat, who many people believe will vacate that position to challenge Jack Miller for a seat in the U.S. Senate, thus leaving the congressional chair wide open for such ambitious folk as Senators Riley, Lamborn or Walsh. Of the 10 counties represented at the Independence dogleg meeting, all are in the 2nd District with the excep- tion of Buchanan County, transferred to the 3rd District by congressional redistricting earlier this year. It would be unfortunate if the route of this major high- way is determined more by political pressures than by where the need is greatest. INCIDENTALLY, if many of the Northeast Iowa com- munities represented at the Oelwein meeting would study carefully the Iowa Highway Commission's plan for the Iowa freeway-expressway network, they might conclude that they are working against the best long range interests of the areas they represent. For included in the planned expressway-freeway sys- tem is an expressway that would be built almost due north of Cedar Rapids going through the heart of 10-county area. If 1-380 is built north to Independence it might mean the death of the planned north-south express- way. "Only a short tune ago we saw the Amana freeway dropped from Highway Commission plans because it would have paralleled an existing, north-south highway just a few miles away.

Terry Kahlar of Williamsburg and Bill Clay of North English, both 16, were reported in critical condition at the hospital. Inflation Victory Seen WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon forecast vic- tory Thursday in what he described as a head-on con- frontation with inflation in Phase 2 of his wage and price control program. The President's recorded report led off a wage-price discussion by top administration officials, carried by closed- circuit television to businessmen in 26 cities. The Na- tional Association of Manufacturers sponsored the presen- Nixon said the 90-day wage-price freeze due to end Nov. 13 has been "extraordinarily successful" and called on the businessmen to join with government in a post- freeze effort to revitalize the economy. Baffle Toll Drops SAIGON (AP) The U.S. Command announced Thursday that seven Americans were killed in combat in Vietnam last week, the third week in succession that less than 10 were killed. The level is the lowest in six years. The command's weekly casu- alty summary also reported 84 U.S. servicemen were wounded last week, equaling the wounded figure for the previous week. The seven combat deaths compared with five in the pre- vious week and eight the week before that. The U.S. Command also re- ported 32 Americans died last week from accidents and ill- ness, more than double the 15 deaths from nonhostile causes during- the previous week. The toll was the highest in one week since the last week of Febru- ary, when 37 such deaths were reported. A spokesman said the increase last week, was due in part to accidental helicopter crashes. The South Vietnamese com- mand reported 394 government troops were killed in battle last week and 700 were wounded, .compared with 391 killed and 919 wounded a week earlier. Nixon View Given Foreign Aid Bill Veto Is Possible WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Nixon will have to veto the billion foreign aid bill unless restrictions on adminis- tration policies in Indochina are removed, Dr. Henry Kissinger was quoted as saying Thursday. "The administration would rather have no bill at all" than one which ties its hands on negotiating an end to the war in Indochina, Senate Republi- can Leader Hugh Scott told newsmen following a breakfast meeting between Kissinger, the President's top national secur- ity adviser, and a bipartisan group of senators. The Pennsylvania Republican said efforts were planned later Thursday to remove two amendments to the foreign aid that the White House finds ob- to cut off funds for all U.S. operations in Indochina except withdrawal and one to limit aid to Cam- bodia. Failure to defeat the two amendments probably would lead to an administration-back- ed effort to sidetrack the entire bill, which could draw support from senators who support the restrictive amendments but op- pose foreign aid. Scott said Kissinger told the senators that if the two amend- ments remain in the bill "he does not see how the President could find it possible to sign it." Denies 'Green Light' Scott denied the adminis- tration, through a series of de- nunciations of the United Na- tions expulsion of Taiwan, had flashed a green light for sena- tors seeking to cut U.S. finan- cial support of the world orga- nization. "There is no green or red an amber Scott said. The Senate also was sched- uled to act later in the day on amendments by Sens. James L. Buckley, Con-R-N.Y., and Peter Dominick, R-Colo., which would cut U.S. financial support to the United Nations. The amend- ments were introduced follow- ing the expulsion of Taiwan from the U.N. Monday night. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., urged the Senate not to cut U.N. funds "out of petulance and irritation." Regardless of displeasure over the U.N. vote and the "bad taste" of delegates who celebrated the U.S. defeat, "this would be a very super- ficial way and a very demean- ing way "for a great country to show its Javits said.

Egypt Rejects U.S. Plan For Mid East Settlement Court Appeal Made WASHINGTON (AP) Envi- ronmental groups pinned their hopes Thursday on a new court appeal after President Nixon gave a go-ahead Wednesday to a huge underground nuclear blast at a North Pacific island. A three-judge panel heard an appeal from environmental groups about two hours after the Atomic Energy Commission announced the administration decision. The U.S. Appeals Court indicated it would decide quickly whether it should grant a stay to allow time for consid- eration of a permanent in: junction against the test. Meanwhile, Canada's foreign minister contacted Secretary of State William P. Rogers to ex-, press his country's "disquiet" over Nixon's decision. Both Canada and1 Japan have opposed the plan to explode a five-megaton atomic .warhead, designed for the Spartan anti- ballistic missile, some feet beneath Amchitka Island, in the Aleutian Islands chain of Alaska. Both nations said they fear such a blast might cause envi- ronmental damage, including leaks of radiation that could spread in ocean watsrs across international boundaries. Seven environment groups headed-fay the Committee for Nuclear Responsibility, also fearing environmental hazards, had sought a court injunction to bar the test. MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union announced Thursday Egypt has rejected a U.S. plan for an interim agreement on the Middle East Crisis. The news agency Tass said .in a dispatch from New York that the American proposal was a "diversionary maneuver... drawn up on terms that are quite unacceptable to Egypt." The agency report was the -public response by either the Russians or the Egyptians to the sixrpoint proposal. Secretary of State William P. Rogers outlined the plan at the U.N. General Assembly earlier this month. To Open Suez The plan was primarily de- signed to open the blocked Suez Canal and link an interim agreement with a permanent Middle East solution. The Egyptian rejection fol- lows the Kremlin's decision to increase arms shipments to the Arabs. Just one week after Rogers presented the plan, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat flew to Moscow for a meeting with Kremlin leaders. He was joined by his foreign minister, Mahmoud Riad, who previously had two private meetings with Rogers in New York. Not Outright Refusal Diplomats here said the Egyptian rejection the Ro- gers proposals was not an out- right refusal to reach some form of a temporary Middle East agreement. They recalled that the inter- im agreement concept was first advanced by Sadat himself .last February and that Cairo had given no indication it had changed its mind.- They said it was obvious both the Soviets and Egyptians had decided at the Kremlin meet- ings that Rogers terms were being turned down, not his over-all idea. The Kremlin coupled the re- jection announcement with a sharp criticism of what it called Washington's "unilateral diplomacy" and urged the United States to return to a four power search for an agree- ment. The Kremlin demanded that Washington give up its role as middleman and operate within the framework the four pow- er consultations. r A long article in the Commu- nist party newspaper Pravda by New York correspondent Tomas Kolesnichenko said: "In United Nations circles the im- pression is being created that American diplomacy is deliber- ately prolonging the Middle East crisis." The "extremely dangerous situation" in the Middle East demands that all available op- portunities are used to "liqui- date the results of Israel's ag- gression and find a political it added.

(AP) Officials of the Mariner 9 Mars probe project are installing a communications system here they hope will bridge language and ideology barriers and bring about the first joint effort in space exploration by U.S. and Russian scientists. Officials at the California In- stitute of Technology's Jet Pro- pulsion to use a Telex machine to ex- change data through a similar machine in Moscow when both countries begin exploration of Mars next month. Mariner 9 is scheduled to go into Martian orbit Nov. 13 and take photographs and other measurements of the planet. Two Soviet craft, Mars 2 and 3, are expected to arrive about the same time, but their mis- sions haven't been disclosed. The Telex system is a means of sending and receiving mes- sages by teletype. One machine can send information by dialing another's number. "We have their number and they have said Dan Schneiderman, Mariner 9 proj- ect director. "As soon as our machine is installed, we'll place a call. We'll just see who answers. Sometimes that's the only way to get things rolling." Troops Alerted as Inauguration Nears u.s.w A Thieu A SAIGON (AP) The U.S. Command Thursday ordered American troops in Vietnam on an increased alert for the week- end in anticipation of enemy at- tacks during the inauguration of President Nguyen Van Thieu. The alert is also intended to keep the American troops away from any hostile demonstrations by anti-Thieu forces who blame the United States for his unopposed re- election. "Intelligence indicates pos- sible increased enemy activity during the period, such as ter- ror, sapper and rocket and mortar said a spokes- man for the U.S: Command, Maj. Richard Gardner. Begins Friday- He said the alert would begin at 5 p.m. Saigon time Friday and would remain in effect at least through 5 p.m. Monday. Under the alert, called "gray U.S. troops can en- ter cities or towns only on es- sential official business, and ve- hicle movement outside U.S. in- stallations is limited to essen- tial travel. Similar alerts were declared during the National Assembly election last Aug. 29 and the presidential election Oct. 3. There have been 39 fire- bombings of U.S. vehicles in Saigon since early September, all of them believed to be the work of militant students op- posing Thieu and the U.S. sup- port of his government. Release Prisoners The government in preparation for the inauguration Thursday announced its biggest POW re- lease of the war, raising cautious hopes that the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong would reciprocate. The Defense Ministry said 618 "repentant" Viet Cong will be freed outright. It said another are being accepted into the government's "open arms" program for a brief period of political indoctrination after which they can return to their villages or work for the govern- ment in such fields as propa- ganda, psychological warfare and intelligence gathering. A communique said the pris- oners were being granted am- nesty to mark the inauguration Sunday of President Nguyen Van Thieu and South Vietnam's independence day anniversary on Monday. Sources at the presidential palace said earlier that Thieu would make, a new appeal for peace on Monday. Some reports said this would be a new in- itiative, while other sources in- dicated it would contain a re- newal of earlier calls for an im- mediate cease-fire as the first step toward a settlement. Hold POWs The South Vietnamese hold about prisoners of war, a little more than of them North Vietnamese. The U.S. Defense Department lists 462 known American prisoners of in North Vietnam, 79 in South Vietnam, three hi Laos and two in China. Another Americans are listed as miss- ing in action. Hopes for prisoner exchanges were given impetus three weeks ago when the Viet Cong released the first American it has set free in nearly two years, Sgt. John C. Sexton Jr., of Warren, Mich. The Viet Cong indicated they would welcome reciprocal action, and three days later South Vietnam freed a North Vietnamese. i
