No official confirmation was available. Legislators Predict No Long-Truck Override By Prank Nye DES MOINES — There will be no attempt to override Oov. Robert Ray’s veto of the long-truek bill, Republican majority leaders in the legislature said Monday. Hut they look for a second effort to legalize 65-foot twin trailers through an amendment to a senate-passed bill (SP' 1079) allowing bigger trucks in Iowa’s border cities.

The meeting was at first post-1 poned to 5 p.m., then to 7 p.m. I as she continued talks with I party colleagues pleading with her to remain in office. “The postponement has led to speculation that she may be reconsidering her decision,” a political source said. ‘‘She’s meeting with various people at the moment.” Mrs. Meir announced her decision to step down Sunday night at a meeting of her Labor party. Brink of Elections Veto Victim's Desk Draped In Mourning HES MOINES—Sen. VV. R. Rabedeaux (It-Wilton), chief sponsor of the long-truck bill vetoed Saturday by Gov. Robert R a y, had his senate desk draped in black and adorned with a lighted candle in mourning Monday by Sen. Ralph McCartney (R C h a r I e s City). Backgrounding the scene was the front page of the Sunday Cedar Rapids Gazette with the banner line “RAY OVERTURNS TRUCK BILL”. don't know what their motive is.” When a newsman suggested it might be to get the governor to change his veto decision, Ray replied: ‘‘I’ve made that decision and there’s no way to change that. If they’re thinking in terms of generating legislative support to override, I doubt it would be successful.” G.O.P. Leaders His statement was echoed a few minutes later by House Republican Leader Edgar Holden (R-I)avenport) and senate G.O.P. leader Clifton Lamborn (R-Maquoketa). Each said he doesn’t plan to try to override Ray’s veto. A two-thirds majority vote is needed in each chamber to override the veto and The long-truck hill (HF 671) was short of those majorities when passed. The house passed the bill, 60-34, on June 7, 1973, seven votes shy of the 67 two-thirds majority required to override the veto.; The senate passed it Feb. 20 this year, 26-23, far short of the 34 votes needed for a two-thirds majority.

There NEW YORK (AP) - U.S Dis-trict Judge Lee Gagliardi Monday denied a defense motion for a mistrial in the criminal conspiracy case of former Atty. Gen. Mitchell and ex-Commerce , Secretary Stans. The judge made his decision known after a short session in a private conference room behind the courtroom. In ruling against the mistrial motion Gagliardi said he had concluded that the jury could not have drawn an inference of guilt from the opening statement Friday of prosecutor James Ravhill. The judge said that the jury had been amply instructed on the fact that an indictment is merely an accusation and that all defendants stand innocent unless proven guilty. Gagliardi said that reading of the opening statement convinced him the prosecution had not planned an inference of guilt. First Witness The trial’s first witness was Irving M.
