KNUTSON WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate, in a vote that upheld President Nixon’s Vietnam policies, refused today to set deadlines for withdrawal of all American troops. It turned down a proposal that the troops be pulled out by the end of 1971. Triumph For Nixon The defeat of the “Amendment to End the War,” came as a triumph for the Nixon administration, after months’ of controversy in which critics denounced the measure as a blueprint for the first defeat in American history. But Sens. George McGovern, D-S.D., and Mark O. Hatfield, R-Ore.. the principal sponsors of the amendment, said the vote succeeded in demonstrating the depth of national discontent over America’s long and bloody struggle in Southeast Asia. “This amendment gave a rallying point to millions of anguished citizens across this war-weary land,” McGovern told the Senate. Branding the war the cruelest, the most barbaric and the most stupid conflict in American history, McGovern said: “Every senator in this chamber is partly responsible for sending 50,000 young Americans to an early grave.” The defeat of the amendment was all but sealed less than an hour before the vote when Sen. John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky., considered a key figure by the Hatfield-McGovern forces, announced he would not support it. Cooper said the Congress must place its faith in the President. Voting against the Hatfield-McGovern amendment were 34 Republicans and 21 Democrats. The supporting vote was made up of 32 Democrats and 7 Republicans. The vote of 39 for the amendment was exactly that predicted by Republican leaders and two less than the last private count taken by the McGovem-Hatfield forces. The galleries were only partly filled during the 15-minute count down. Spectators made no sound as the vote was announced. Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania told the Senate in closing debate that the amendment was mischievous and could do harm and no good, although he said it might be advantageous to senators “who can manage to get full-page publicity” from it. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said in closing debate that rejection of Hatfield-McGovern would amount to praise for a “military withdrawal that has yet to take place.” “I do not question the President’s will or skill in conducting foreign policy or in acting as commander in chief,” Mansfield declared. But, he added, “with all due respect the difficulties are such in my judgment that joint effort is needed.” ‘Extended War* Sen. Barry Coldwater, the Ar izona Republican who carried his party’s standard in the 1964 presidential election, said the war could have been over six years ago “if we had used our power.” The nation, said Coldwater, didn’t have the “guts” to do it. “It sickens me to hear amendments come up like this,” he said. “Our President inherited these wrongs. He didn’t create them. And he is the first President we’ve had try to do something to correct them.” “No one can predict which is correct, but the President is in control of negotiations,” Cooper told the Senate. “Their conduct is in his hands, and I believe that he should be given the opportunity and the mandate to secure a settlement.” Seek identity of mutilated, burned body KEARNEY (AP) — Buffalo County authorities are seeking the identity of a woman whose bound, burned and mutilated body was found in a grass fire in a field near Film Creek. The woman’s hands were rut off and her face burned beyond recognition, apparently in an attempt to keep officials from identifying the body, said Andrew McMullen, county attorney. He said the hands couldn’t be found. Physicians who made an autopsy in a Kearney hospital said the woman apparently had been dead one or two days. A dentist examined the woman’s teeth and said she was apparently over 21 years old. “I’m sure we have a murder case here.” said McMullen. He said there were indications the woman had been killed elsewhere, then brought to the spot where she was found. There was no blood there, McMullen added. The county attorney said the body was partly clothed in a dress which he described as expensive. The body wa1 found about a mile east of U.S. 183 south of Elm Creek. McMullen said lf appeared liquid had been poured over the bodv before it was set afire. He described her as 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 5 inches in height, weighing about 130 pounds; and with a web toe on her right foot. He said the bdy Is not that of either of two young women missing from the Nebraska Hospital for Tuberculosis at Kearney. He said both those women are younger than the woman whose bodv was found. Tov gun explodes, kills youngster DES MOINES (AP)—A metal popgun purchased for 50 cents at the Iowa State Fair was fed a live shell by a 4-year-old bov here Sunday and the toy exploded. The youngster, I.lovd Higgins, escaped injury. His father, George Higgins. 34. wats hit in the foot by a piece of the ricocheting slug. He said he was only stung. Higgins said the gun worked bv pulling back a spring inside the barrel and inserting a cork in the muzzle. When the trigger was activated the spring struck the cork, shooting it from the barrel. Higgins said his son found the live ammunition — .38 caliber shells — on a shelf high over the fireplace. He said the boy apparently reached them bv .standing on a chair.

(Sun Photo) Hiring outside legal aid, non-bid buying criticized September weather still in August rut Cir** Nebraska’s weather Tuesday —the first day of September — remained in the August rut. It was warm Tuesday and weathermen said no change in the pattern was indicated through Wednesday. Besides being warm—hot during the afternoon—the continued lack of needed rains is foreseen. Chadron, with a reading of 96, apparently was Nebraska’s hot spot Monday. Alliance had Tuesday's low of 53. * The Gage County Taxpayer’s Assn. today issued a strong statement criticizing the County for hiring outside legal counsel and appraisal service in tax valuation appeal cases, instead of using services of the County Attorney’s and Assessor’s offices. The association criticized the County Board for purchasing a road grader without competitive bids. The statement, drafted by an association officer and approved by the association’s board of directors, reads: “The Gage County Taxpayers Assn., Inc., has gone on record as being opposed to recent procedures by the Gage County Assessor and the Gage County Board of Supervisors. Tax Appeal “Recently an honest real estate taxpayer and landowner of Gage County had a tax appeal case in District Court. “Gage County has a legal staff composed of the County Attorney and a Deputy receiving a combined salary of $15,000 annually, but the County Board of Superv isors and Assessor bypassed the Gage County legal department and went to Omaha to secure legal assistance for the above District Court case. The Gage County Board of Supervisors spent $1,107.80 for legal services from Omaha plus $1 390.57 for professional appraisal services to the Justin Haynes Co. and, in addition, $103.02 advanced costs or a total of $2,601.39 which is mill levy money or tax dollars they are spending when the County has its own legal staff and assessor. ‘Not Only Once’ “Not only the above cited case, hut again on July 14, 1970, the Gage County Board of Supervisors again directed their chairman to secure the services of an Omaha attorney for another case which could well be a duplication of the above expenses. All above data can be verified from public records in t h e Gage County Clerk’s office. “The Gage County Taxpayers Assn., Inc., was organized in an effort to conserve the taxpay- TURN TO PAQE 2, COLUMN 4 REACT CHAPTER IS ORGANIZED A total of 15 county citizen band operators organized t h e Gage County REACT chapter Monday at a meeting of participants in the Nebraska Emergency Reporting system. Selected team leader of the organization was Lester Nicholson, currently acting as coordinator of the NER system here. Mrs. Ruth Maxson was elected secretary and treasurer George Pence of Holmesville. The REACT program is a nation wide association of citizens band teams who volunteer their assistance and provide citizens two-way radio communications in local emergencies. E^ach REACT team maintains a monitor station or system guarding the national REACT emergency channel nine, 24 hours per day, seven days a week. REACT is a program whose sole purpose is to establish a simple and foolproof system of local emergency procedure f o r communicating messages on a volunteer basis. Presently, 40,000 members of the 1,300 REACT teams handle about 1,200,000 emergencies annually. Of these, about 500,000 are auto accidents. Stans kids keep their hair combed By MARTIN KRUMING LOS ANGELES (AP) - Every Saturday morning at IO, about 80 boys and girls line up outside Stan Myles’ auto body shop in the Watts district to get their dimes. One by one they walk up to the counter and Stan checks their name off a list he keeps. Dimes in hand, each youngster then scampers to a store across the street for a soda or ice cream. Stan, a 50-year-o!d widower with two grown children, has been handing out the pocket money for five years. Anyone Can Join To earn a dime a child must be a member of the Neighborhood Good Guys Club. Anyone can join. All of the kids are between the ages of 3 and 14. Most of their families are on welfare and in many of the homes there is no father. How do you become a good guy? “By keeping your hair combed and being nice,” says 8-year-old Vanoy Bush. Good guys also have clean faces, a neat appearance and never break windows, fight or get into trouble. “They also do anything their mother wants them to do without protest,” says Myles, a native of Texas who came to Los Angeles in 1936. A good report card during the school year brings an extra 15 to 50 cents. Stan, as the kids call him, started the club in 1965 when he caught two brothers breaking bottles behind his shop. Instead of bawling them out he asked them inside the office, gave them a soft drink and told them they could earn a dime apiece by cleaning up the broken bottles. Word Spreads Soon the word spread that Stan was a pretty good guy. Besides dimes, Myles has handed out baseball equipment, swimming pool passes and shoes and even paid a beautician to fix up a little girl’s hair so she could be in a parade. Each Christmas Myles throws a neighborhood party with a present for each guest. In five years since he started handing out dimes, Myles has lost only $20 worth of merchandise from his shop and has nev-ei had a broken window. Veterinarian dies of severe beating SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Dr. Robert J. Stukel Jr., a Bloomfield, Neb., veterinarian died at a Sioux City hospital Tuesday after having been found severely beaten on the playground of a Sioux City school. Sioux City police said they found the man’s pickup truck, a mobile veterinary laboratory, some two miles from the playground in the downtown area. Dr. Stukel, 29, operated the only veterinary clinic in the Bloomfield area. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, he came to Bloomfield in 1967 and jointly operated the clinic with another veterinarian until January of 1968, when Stukel took over sole ownership. He was also active in the Volunteer Fire Department at Bloomfield. Time to end minority's violence By ELIAS CASTILLO PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The American Legion, which saw mild heckling at its national convention parade Monday, heard Kansas Gov. Robert Docking say today he was disgusted with the minority of youths who tear down rather than build. “It is disgusting to allow a few to interfere with the rights of the majority of students,” Docking said. The question of curbing campus violence was expected to be one of the major resolutions coming before the national convention as it opened business sessions today. The 14,OCX) delegates were prepared to hear committee reports on more than 500 resolutions including those giving strong support to the President’s handling of the war in Southeast Asia and for maintaining national security. Docking’s remarks were prepared for delivery to the opening session. ‘As Are Others* Docking told the legion, “I am' certain that you, as are most citizens of our nation, are tired of hearing one per cent of our college students claim that ‘doing their own thing’ means disregarding and disrespc "ting laws of this nation; that academic freedom means burning administration buildings and „ canceling ROTC reviews—legiti-| mate university functions; that civil rights means calling public officials names, and that our colleges are a place for the students to teach, not learn.” Some 10,000 persons marched or rode in Monday’s parade while National Guard troops stood by, but out of sight, ready for trouble that never materialized. About 1,300 members of the People’s Army    Jamboree,    a group opposing U.S. policy in Southeast Asia, had marched on Sunday in a “Victory for the Vietnamese People” parade, and it was expected they would try to confront the legionnaires.

Sharing the ballot with Callan will be farmer Bill Burrows of Adams, the Democratic nominee, and Charles Thone, a lawyer from Lincoln nominated by the Republicans. Thone was named after Rep. Robert Denney, R-Neb., dropped out of the race to seek a federal judgeship. Callan, elected to the House in 196*1, was upset two years later by Denney, who won reelection in 1968.    I Callan said business commitments kept him from running in May, but later said he thought his staying out of the race w’as a mistake.

At about the same time two other pieces of metal fell near Pratt, Kan. and Beaver, Okla. An etched serial number, shown at bottom of photo, was on the metal that fell near Adrian. The Air Force says the chunks of metal are probably remnants of a Soviet-Cos- mos 317 satellite. The parts, each about the size of a car muffler are being analyzed at Air Force laboratories in Dayton, Ohio, and will be returned to Russia if they prove to have been part of the satellite. Tile decay of the Cosmos 316 was predicted along a path where the pieces were found. The satellite was launched last Dec. 23.
