McCowan trial starts Monday A scond first-degree murder trial of a man accused of killing a Leoti policeman has been scheduled to begin Monday in Reno District Court. An earlier conviction of Richard McCowan in Saline District Court, where the trial was moved from Wichita County, had been overturned by the Kansas Supreme Court because of technical problems with the charges filed against him. The second trial, moved to Hutchinson on a change of venue, was to have begun Oct. 30 but was delayed by a petition McCowan filed with the high court alleging he should be released because of a lack of a speedy trial. Free money? Not exactly! CINCINNATI (UPI) - It wasn't exactly free money, but it sounded like a pretty good deal. Money was being sold at a 20 percent discount. Newspaper advertisements said $100 bills would be sold for $80, and smaller bills also discounted 20 percent, in a promotional stunt Sunday designed to attract Christmas shoppers to the Western Hills Plaza shopping center. Although the ads did say only one bill per customer, they did not say that the $10,000 sale would include only 20 of the obviously highly sought-after $100 bills. Many of the 700 people - some of whom had waited in line three hours in the rain - were angered when they found out that more than half of the 1,310 bills in the sale were only $1 and $2 bills. Amid the boos and obscenities, one woman threw a cup of coffee at a woman selling bills after the $100 bills were gone and security guards said a man "started raising a lot of heck." Plaza promotion director Jack Richmond, after things finally quieted down, said, "I took abuse that I never took in my life. I Was just thankful we got through it without a freefor-all. "...If this is ever done again, it won't be me doing it." While the stunt originally was designed to drum up good will for the shopping center, some unhappy people left threatening to boycott the stores.

(UPI) - A 29-year-old Beaumont, Kan., man who pleaded guilty in September to the killing of a wealthy Wichita oilman escaped early today from the Lamed State Hospital. Hospital Superintendent Rod Clel-land said Glendal Rider, convicted of the Feb. 7 killing of Robert Aylward, apparently sawed his way out of a security area on the west side of the ground floor of the maximumsecurity Dillon Building before dawn. "I don't have any information on how he obtained a saw or file, but he cut his way through a security screen, presumably sometime in the early morning before dawn," Clelland said. "He also cut his way through a barred window that is outside the security screen, and it appears he has taken about a 14-inch section of the bar with him. I have to presume he also scaled a 12-foot security fence." Authorities were centering their search in Larned, Wichita and Pittsburg, where a female friend of Rider lives. / A presentence evaluation of Rider had ended with' the declaration he was fit for sentencing in the Aylward killing, and he was to have been returned to Wichita for the sentence. Rider also pleaded guilty in September to the 1974 killing of Pepper Jackson. Five killed in plane crash ANCHORAGE, Alaska (UPI) -Five people, including the wife of Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, were killed Monday in the crash of a privately chartered Lear jet between two / runways at Anchorage International Airport. Stevens, 55, who was aboard with several state officials, survived the crash and was taken to Providence Hopital where he was reported in serious condition with head, neck and arm injuries. Alaska State Police said Stevens' wife, Ann, was killed. The identities of the other fatalities were not known. One known survivor was Tony Motley, an Alaska lobbyist, who was hospitalized with undetermined injuries. Maj. James Vaden of the State Patrol said the jet crashed between two runways and "broke up but there was no fire." Proxmire pushing citizens to pay up WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. William Proxmire, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, said today he is taking steps to get back some of the 115 billion owed the government by individuals. "Until and unless the average citizen knows that an obligation to pay his government is just *s sacred as an obligation to pay his car dealer, we can expect the dollars owed the federal government to grow by leaps and bounds," he said. Proxmire said a* a first step he has asked the General Accounting Office to refer to credit bureaus some of the delinquent loans made for veterans education. He predicted that if delinquent borrowers are threatened with a bad credit rating for failure to repay their federal loans, the government will collect more of the money. The GAO, he said, has estimated all delinqueat account* - from taxes owed, loans unrepaid. overpayment of benefits and such - total about f IS billion. He urged the' agencies to "use the discipline of the marketplace to collect bad debts by referring to credit bureaus the names of citizens who refuse to repay government loans." Proxmire said going to credit bureaus would be "an inexpensive, effective and fair way to insure that when Uncle Sam lends money, it's a loan and not a gift." As a test of the credit bureau approach, Proxmire said, "I have asked the GAO to refer certain delinquent VA educational assistance accounts to credit bureaus." "I believe these bills will be paid if those who owe the money know that they will lose their good credit rating if they don't ante up," he said. Proxmire said when the average citizen refuses to make a car payment or reneges on a charge account, he late* hi* good credit rating. "Apparently this sort of discipline is considered too harsh to be applied to a federal debtor. Consequently, it is a whale of a lot easier to thumb your nose at Uncle Sam than it is to tell the local hardware store that you won't pay your bills," Proxmire said. NEW YORK (UPI) - The stock market rallied Tuesday afternoon behind Carter administration assurances a recession could be averted and a prediction interest rates might have peaked. Trading was brisk. The Dow Jones industrial average, which fell 4.67 points Monday, was ahead 6.58 points to 813.40 around 1:15 p.m. EST. Monday's loss snapped a twoday, 21.39-point rise. The New York Stock Exchange index was ahead 0.38 to 54.11 ahd the price of a share was up 21 cents. Advances led' declines, 844 to 416, among the 1,755 issues crossing the NYSE tape. Early buying was sparked by G. William Miller, Federal Reserve chairman, who said that while "it will indeed be a minor miracle" if the nation can cure inflation without causing a recession, "we are going to pull it off." The Fed's credit-tightening policies that have driven interest rates higher normally diminish business expansion plans. But the government Monday reported that new October factory orders rose 4.2 percent and nondefense capital goods orders, a key sign of future economic strength, climbed 10.4 percent. Meanwhile, David Rockefeller, Chase Manhattan Bank chairman, told a London news conference that short-term interest rates may be near their peak for the present cycle. Some investors grew cautious when the dollar turned mixed in Europe after a strong start. It closed lower in Tokyo. Many investors have been heartened by the greenback's recovery lately following President Carter's efforts to rescue it. 30.46, Vtl MATTU C Local stocks High Beech............................23% Nat'l Gypsum Co. ............ 17V.

Shaddy petitions to change name WICHITA. Kan. (UPI) - A 22-year-old man declared innocent because of insanity in the slaying of his parents in 1975 has petitioned the court to allow him and his brother to change their names. Lawyers for Gregory S. Shaddy and Michael Scott Shaddy filed the petitions in Sedgwick County District Court late Monday, claiming publicity surrounding the murder case has had an adverse effect on their lives. Greg Shaddy was acquitted by reason of insanity of firstdegree murder in the stabbing deaths of Vernon and Barbara Shaddy in Wichita July 24, 1975. He was committed to state mental hospitals in March 1976 and released March 27,1978, after he was declared cured and "no longer dangerous." He has been ordered by the state to pay more than $30,000 for his care during two years of commitment, but lawyers intend to appeal. Greg Shaddy asked to be known as Gregory Saint-John and his brother asked to be known as Michael Scott Landon.

Webster said he he took action on the basis of whether the agents were carrying out orders from their superiors. The FBI chief said he had dismissed a "current headquarters supervisor," who while serving as a field supervisor, "ignored specific instructions, as well as manual regulations and authorized and approved electronic surveillances and mail openings." Webster said that agent also approved four unauthorized break-ins. Also fired was a "headquarters supervisor" who failed to take action to atop "unauthorized activities that should readily have been recognizable to him." Webster said he did not believe the agent's explanation for his failures. In addition, two more agents will be disciplined and two other "street agents" who carried out illegal break-ins without approval from their supervisors will be censured. But the FBI director announced at a news conference he would take no administrative action against 58 other active agents and a supervisor accused of unauthorized surveillance in a search for members of the terrorist Weather Underground from 1970-75. V Pan Am will stay in NY NEW YORK (UPI) - Pan American Airlines announced plans to buy the land under its office building for 126 million and reaffirmed its commitment to keep its world headquarters in New York City.
