John R. Ingram labeled an auto insurance

Ingram, in a meeting with reporters, called
the industry's substitute a final attempt to
cloud the issue.
Legislation backed by Ingram is before the

second blackbird kill
United Press International
PADUCAH, Ky. (U PI) With about
200.000 blackbirds dead but thousands more
still swarming, a city official said Monday
another attempt may be made to rid the town
of its feathered menace.
"We need to more thoroughly assess the
results before we go ahead," said City
Manager William Howerton. However, he
did not rule out a bird kill under favorable
weather conditions Monday night.
Due to poor visibility, a plane flying at
tree-top level Saturday night was only able
to spray 60 per cent of a 25-acre blackbird
roost that had been estimated to contain 1. 5
The soapy chemical spray, tergitol,
removes the protective oil from the birds
feathers, causing many to die from exposure
to freezing rain.
"It is possible if the prediction is far more
rain and hopefully colder temperatures we
will spray again," said Howerton. "We
would like for it to be in the upper or lower
30s for the best results. Then it would depend
on the visibility for flying."
Meanwhile, 80 miles to the southeast,
Hopkinsville Mayor George Atkins was
awaiting word from the Army whether it was

LONDON Secretary of State Henry A.
Kissinger and Soviet Foreign Minister
Andrei A. Gromyko split Monday over how
to reach Middle East peace. But they began
work on the . next strategic arms treaty
between the United States and Russia.
In the talks Sunday night and Monday in
Geneva, Kissinger put forward for the first
time the American proposals for carrying
out the agreement between President Ford
and Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev on the
next stage of limiting nuclear arms.
A senior official with Kissinger said he
believed it could be completed in two or
three months in time for a Brezhnev visit to
the United States sometime this summer.
As expected, the split occurred over the
Middle East, where Kissinger's step-by-step

Monday night for a dinner with Prime

Moscow himself shortly after Kissinger's

Although there were a few stiff exchanges,
the Kissinger-Gromyko talks in Geneva did
not develop into a tense confrontation as
some American officials expected. The
senior official said they were slightly more

Standing side by side in the lobby of the

final meeting, both Kissinger and Gromyko
agreed the talks were fruitful.
Gromyko added there were some points
on which they did not agree. The major point
was the Middle East.
But the senior American official said
Kissinger believed there was less chance than
before the talks that the Soviets would carry
out a determined campaign to block the new
interim agreement between Egypt and Israel

In a news conference following his

Bentsen rejected President Ford's
