WASHINGTON (AP) The National Newspaper Assn. says a hill curtailing government secrecy should Im* revised so it clearly applies to all segments of the federal establishment. A spokesman for the group. Charles Rowe, told a senate panel Tuesday that the measure as introduced by Sen. Chiles, (D-Fla.) may not apply to the executive branch. Rowe warned that under the legislation many governmental actions which directly affect tin* public could remain se ‘ret if an agency or department interprets them to be personnel or Management matters. “Insofar as agencies are concerned. the bill requires meetings to be open only when official action is considered or dismissed,’’ said Rowe, editor of tho Fredericksburg, Va., In’* Lance-Star and a member of tho association’s Freedom of Informal inn Committee.

Landowners, County Study Rural Drainaae Problems The Linn county board of supervisors Tuesday night recessed a public hearing on runoff problems in drainage district No. I in order to allow affected landowners to attempt to solve the problem themselves. Action came after the supervisors heard numerous objections by the landowners to a supervisor-requested engineer’s report which suggested alleviation of the problem through a $30,350 construction project. Supervisor Chairman Jean Oxley said the board would take no action at the present time, but would encourage the county road department to provide increased culvert capacity under a road in the problem area. Reconvene Later She also indicated that the supervisors would expect to reconvene the hearing later to receive a progress report from the landowners. The supervisors are legal trustees for the drainage district, which covers approximately 890 acres southeast of Alburnett. The problem area is along an east-west section of county road at the lower end of the district. where the surface runoff is apparently too great to be handled by the existing drainage system. Larger Pipes The engineer’s report suggested installation of larger (30-inch) pipes along county right-of-way on the south side of the road to take the water to a nearby cl eek. Landowners counter-proposed increasing culvert capacity under the road by allowing them to improve privately-owned south of the road. The improved maintained, would be able to handle adequately both surface and sub-surface water runoffs. Should the landowners’ plan not succeed, both sides agreed that an alternate solution would have to be sought. 29 YEARS AGO Army Special Counsel Joseph N.

Tho charges were contained in a protest note filed Tuesday at OAS headquarters in Washington. the ministry said. The Central American neighbors fought a 100-hour war in 1969 over border disputes. They have had no diplomatic relations since then, and efforts at peace talks last year broke off in failure. "Army clements, the Salvadorean national guard and armed civilian? of the same nationality have been attacking frontier police patrols who carry out their duties complying with tho agreement that established the security zone for pacification," t Ii e Honduran note said.
