The vote on the AsianAfrican resolution was 910 with France abstaining and Nationalist China not taking part Goldberg indicated thaC the presence of the Peking govern ment in a disarmament confer ence

Commission plan adopted Tuesday would bring a Cedar RapidsWaterloo freeway to Mason City at least by 1986 The report Is part of what is called the most comprehensive longrange study ever made in Iowa and on needs for a high capacity highway system out side the Interstate System It calls for 760 miles of freeways These would be built during a 15year period following com pletion of the Interstate System which is to be no later than 1972 The portion concerning Mason City would run from Waterloo to Garner by way of Waverly and Mason City This is part of an expressway route that would go from Iowa City north through Cedar Rapids to Waterloo and then on northwest Including connection from Iowa City lo the southeast through Burlington to Fort Madi son the route would serve inter regional traffic from St Louis to the Twin Cities the commission said However the study on whichj the report was based appar intly was made before the re ent decision to route Interstate 35 cast of Clear Lake That northsouth Interstate originally had been suggested on a route along Highway 69 near Gar ner Since the new 135 plan affects the estimated traffic volumes the commission said This re quires a new study as to the need of this section Waterloo Garner and its priority As listed in the present re port the section is No 6 in list of 12 sections into which the 760 miles of proposed Iowa free ways are divided Work on none of the sections would be anticipated until com pletion of the interstate system in Iowa The system originally was scheduled for completion in 1972 but there is reported to be feeling in Congress for a step up in construction which could make for earlier completion The cost of the WaterlooGar ner section is estimated at 322000 in construction Length is 918 miles The 1986 summer weekday traffic would be 6000 vehicles according to estimates now However this is the traf fic volume that is to be culated on the basis of effects hat the changed 135 route will1 lave It was calculated in the study hat the road users now spend annually driving the primary roads in the Waterloo Darner traffic corridor The reeway section would cost only 19178000 annually to drive providing the motorist a WO yearly saving according lo he report Construction cost for the en ire proposed 760 miles of free ways is estimated at 300 but the commissions fig ures indicate savings to road users in operating costs would ar exceed that figure during he life of the system j After 1986 motorists would iave a year in oper ating costs by using the new highways the study indicates In addition the commission stressed freeways hold a tre mendous advantage in tafety lino around the cast and south sides of Dos Moines The nearest section of the Sioux CityDubiique route to this area a segment from 135 lo Waterloo by way of Iowa Falls is No 4 on the priority list of a doYcn freeways Besides the freeways the plan calls for a system of supplemen tary expressways which would be nearly of the same caliber as the freeways Freeways as listed in Ihc re port are fourlane divided roads FREEWAYS Please Turn to Page 2 Final action taken Corridor by Clear Lake TROUBLE Trucks and cars tmoving westward

danger By CHARLES W WALK North Iowa News Director Jones antl Carl Condon probably will re lax j u s t a little if everything goes right Dec 3 Thats the day the new inter section of Highways 20 and 65 is scheduled to open for traffic north of Falls When the intersection it has been under construction since this it should help ease a traffic problem 17 miles away which Jones the Franklin County sheriff and Condon the highway patrolman i working out of Hampton have ibccn facing j The trouble spot is four miles west of Hampton at the inter section of Highway 3 and a county blacktop known as the Stevens Street Road Although that intersection al ways has been dangerous the clanger was compounded this year when the highway com mis sion made Highway 3 the detour route for the Highway 65 traffic plugged by the construction work north of Iowa Falls The problem was complicates when people soon found out that the Stevens Street Road pro Foil plot to throw acid in RFKs face RECIFE Braiil AP Bra zilian police say they have foiled a plot to throw acid in Sen Robert F Kennedys face Police arrested three students Monday night and sought two others Officials said the attack was planned for noon Tuesday dur ing a visit of the New York Democrat to the federal Uni versity of Pernambuco here The acidthrowing was to be a signal for antiUS demonstra tions throughout Latin America police said Kennedy and his wife Ethel are on a South American tour They arrived in this Brazilian port Monday night but rested after a heavy schedule and were not available for comment Kennedy brushed off Sunday an incident last week in Conccp cion Chile where Communist students shouted him down hurled eggs and spat on him I have met with students in Peru and Chile we had a nice time there he told a student group at Sao Paulo Local sources said many Peruvian and Bolivian students are studying in Recife under cultural exchange programs Police said those arrested were a Peruvian Jorge Enrique Vadiviesco Pernal and two Brazilians Maria do Carmo Barbosa and Enrique de Calval ho Matos The Kennedys were enthusi astically received in Salvador and Natal Monday the third day of their visit to Brazil and the second anniversary of Presi dent John F Kennedys assas sination The senator and his wife at tended a morning Mass in the centuriesold Sao Franpisco church then toured mudflat slums and the Dalva Matqs Foundation which cares for about 300 children most of them illegitimate Tears formed in Kennedys eyes when youngsters al the foundation sang God Bless America in Portuguese to the accompaniment of an outof tune piano The most important thing for President Kennedy was chil dren he told a group of slum youngsters If you think some thing of President Kennedy then the thing most important is lo go lo school as Jong as you can vicled a detour shortcut to Iowa Falls and back on Highway 65 Detour shortcuts are as com mon as detours but both Jones and Condon doubt that many such shortcuts have created as many traffic hazards as this one The problem really is with the intersection of the blacktop road and Highway 3 It is lo cated on a curve and if that isnt bad enough there are a few hills to add to the confu sion Traveling west on Highway 3 Ihe Scurvc in the highway first north and then back to the west can not be seen by the motorist until he is within a 100 yards of it To complicate mat ters even more t h c blacktop road comes into the highway from the west at the intersec tion and lo a motorist unfa miliar with Ihc situation it might appear that the highway actually continues westward ralher than aiming lo Ihc north Even lo motorists who travel the road every clay there are clangers especially lo those who want to lake Ihe blacktop road to Iowa Falls In order to get on the backlop from Highway 3 it is necessary to cross over FOCUS turn Page 2 AMES AP The US Bu reau of Public Roads has ap proved the plan adopted by the Iowa Highway Commission for routing Interstate 35 in

Minnesota border Commission Chief Engineer L M Clauson said Tuesday he as informed of the bureaus iproval by Robert E Simpson Ames division engineer for ic federal agency The approval by Ihe federal

Iowa State Highway Com mission has called one of the nost exhaustive studies ever made in locating a section of the interstate highway system Originally the highway com mission had given its approval 0 a route that would have fol lowed Highway 69 in Iowa then run on a diagonal in Minnesota to a control point below Albert Lea This was opposed in mid1763 by individual and groups in Ma son City who cited the criteria demanded in the National De fense and Interstate Highway Act in asking a restudy that would include a diagonal in owa In October 1963 the US Bu eau of Public Roads said it ould not approve the Highway 9 route and favored one that vould pass between Mason City nd Clear Lake because of the greater service it can render The highway commission an nounced on Dec 3 1963 that it had directed its engineers to study alternate routes for 135 through North Iowa Mason City representatives noted that this was all they had ever asked a full study of all possible routes The prolonged study resulted in the unanimous approval of the Mason CityClear Lake route by the Iowa State Highway Commission last Nov 10 This left only approval of the route by the US Bureau of Pub lic Roads That approval came Tuesday Battalion to leave W Ber Im BERLIN AP The U S Army announced Tuesday that it is withdrawing the extra infan try battalion stationed in Berlin since the Communists j built the
