(AP) — Are the glories of the football field and the excitement of a big-time college basketball team going to give up part of the show to women? Missouri Valley Conference Commissioner Mickey Holmes says a new federal requirement may mean just that in the future The nine-member conference of the midland area is taking steps to comply with Title 9 of the Education Act of 1972. The act deals partly with “if a men s program has a $1 million budget, we will either have to provide a comparable fund for women or cut the men's $1 million in half — or get the heck out of the business,” Holmes said of the rule which could possibly go into effect the first of next year. • I don’t think anybody is really considering the last alternative, though.” he said. Holmes recently wrote the health, education and welfare department on behalf of conference officials to express concern in some areas of the proposal. Drastic Changes As proposed, he said, the rule “would mean drastic changes in the present structure and would have a negative effect on sports now scheduled by draining funds off to start new competition.” For instance, he said, money would be required for teaching-coaching positions, equipment, uniforms and travel. One provision would permit a student vote annually on what competition to continue. For example, the student body might vote to cancel a sport where schedules have been made up in advance. “It seems to be a rather unrealistic provision,” Holmes said. Eligibility is a whole new subject, if the rules go into effect, he said. Women have no eligibility requirements at present. “lf you're in school, you’re eligible. And there are no rules on how many years women can compete. Graduate students are eligible. “The first time we rule a man ineligible, he can say these rules are supposed to be equal.” What happens, for instance, if women decide to have a field hockey team: Does the athletic director have to give that team equal time on the football field? Or if women decide to have a volleyball team, some men may decide they want one. “The athletic director will have no alternative,” Holmes said “The men and women are to have the same advantages.” Remains Optimistic Despite the problems. Holmes is optimistic about some sports, such as Women s basketball. “I can foresee the day that women’s basketball will be* playt*d in conjunction with the men’s game, although that is probably several years off I have a tendency to be more optimistic than some of my associates.” The Valley for the first time will have a conference championship program next spring for women. Competition will be held in tennis and golf. lf enough member schools are interested, the program may bt* extended in the future to include volleyball, gymnastics and track and field. Several conference schools now have intercollegiate competition for women, but they have never had a chance at conference time. Gazette Leases Wire Services Photos Spring Fashions, Already?

SEGUIN, Texas (UPI) -First [.ady Betty Ford is going to receive a fatted calf from Texas ranchers who want her to know that beef is a bargain when middlemen costs are eliminated. “Since you are First Lady of the United States, we must assume also that you are the first housewife,” a letter accompanying the processed meat said. “For this reason, we would like to tell you just exactly how little this meat cost us. This calf weighed 465 pounds and cost 27*4 cents per pound for a total of $126 71 “The processing of this calf cost $38 28 and the carcass weighed 261 pounds. Adding these expenses together, this meat cost 63 2 cents per pound after it had been packed and ready for your freezer. “We realize that this is a great deal cheaper than offered BRIDAL PARTY FETES MISS CHRISTINE CLARK Miss Christine (Mark, 1248 Third avenue SFL was feted with a bridal party given Tuesday evening at the home of Mrs. Fred Weber at 1215 Country Club drive, Marion Co-hostess to the 20 guests was Mrs Man in Fernow Parents of the bride-elect are Mr. arid Mrs. Thomas Clark, 2734 Meadowbrook drive SE.

A group gift was given in the supermarkets in this area, and we are sure in your area as well,” the ranchers told Mrs Ford to emphasize how much profit middlemen make from ranch to market counter “The ranchers w ho grew this beef are rapidly going broke They work long and hard hours, use tremendous amounts of capital and not only are they not making a profit, but they are losing money every day,” the letter said “These are the facts that we would like to convey to every housewife in the U.S. Their families deserve good beef, and we like to produce it for them, but if something is not done soon, we will be out of business ’’ EASTERN-STYLF The Kastern-style tub fits almost any bathroom.

Final Vote Count Shows Madam Lost LIDA JUNCTION, Nev (UPI) — The euphoria, the last of the house booze and the winning vote margin vanished with the dawn, leaving would-be Solon Beverly Harrell just a madam again. I,ate returns appeared to indicate that Harrell, who runs the Cottontail Ranch — a brothel - had lost her race for the state assembly by 122 votes. “I think FII demand a recount.” complained the petite, red ha ired owner of the legal bordello, a collection of trailers topped by blinking red lights at a lonely desert crossroad. “In the early evening, I was leading and the margin widened.’ she said “Then all of a sudden nobody seemed to know anything about totals for many hours, and now today the unofficial count shows I have lost. . . . something funny started happening to that vote around midnight.” The count showed Ms. Harrell lost to Don Moody, a service station owner, 2.874 to 2.552. Both are Democrats. One of the problems is that the three-county district covers 25,800 square miles, almost all of it uninhabited desert, broken by occasional ranches, mines, tiny towns and federal installations. Voters use paper ballots, and the counting goes slowly. When it appeared that Harrell had become the first madam to win election to the state office in Nevada — w here prostitution is legal on a local option basis — she gave her “girls” the night off and served free champagne to the crowd of wellwishers that jammed the house. “This place was a madhouse.” Harrell said the morning after. “People were wall to wall I guess I could figure out how many by taking inventory of the liquor — whatever I had I guess they drank ” Harrell said she plans to fight the vote count, but in the meantime “it looks like people may still he calling me madam.” Choose From A Large and Unique Selection Of vvP4<o ^ To Fit <<* ^ Any Decor jQ * CEDAR RAPIDS PAINT 50* 3rd Av*.
