Ingram labeled an auto insurance industry substitute for his plan to eliminate age discrimination in auto liability insurance rates a smoke screen. 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 General Assembly to eliminate age as a consideration in setting auto liability rates and base rates on a driver's record. It would Kentucky town plans 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 million birds. 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 going to go ahead and spray the chemical on birds roosting on the Ft. Campbell Army Post. Army officials in Washington have been , hesitant to order the extermination following an appeals court decision last week.

Industry representatives, in appearances before house and Senate committees, said their plan would provide lower rates for safe drivers but Ingram's would cost safe drivers more and levy heavy surcharges on poor dpfevers. This insurance company smoke screen will increase the rates of two million vehicles even though the owners may have perfect driving records, " said Ingram. "The farm rate will be substantially increased. It increases the rates of farmers, school teachers, factory workers and secretaries in spite of the fact that they have safe driving records." Ingram is expected to appear today before a house insurance subcommittee and Thursday before the Senate Insurance Committee to present his projections of rates under the industry's plan. The industry, which submitted its plan to Ingram one day before a public hearing on the age issue by a joint legislative committee, has titled its plan the fair plan, claiming that in additiong to providing progressively lower rates to youthful drivers, it would give elderly drivers discounts. Split comes over Mideast solution KIieger9 Gromyko . disa by Wilbur G. Landrey UPI Foreign Editor 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 2:20-4:00-5:40-7:20-9:00 Ike Most Heautiful Erotic fantasy ver "A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever John Keats A SUNSHINE UNLIMITED RELEASE (X) M : r 1 in Ci-siiCIIROIIBm PLAYING I S V PASSES SUSPENDED aOHDAfinTpBSl.

At a Washington press conference he said he had strong support in most of the maior states. diplomacy has frozen Moscow out of the negotiations. Even on that issue, the final communique showed perhaps a slight relaxation in Russia's insistence on an immediate return to the Geneva peace conference. It said the sessions should resume at an early date. And, basically, the two men agreed to continue detente. After more than five hours of talks with Gromyko, Kissinger flew to London Monday night for a dinner with Prime Minister Harold Wilson, who arrived from Moscow himself shortly after Kissinger's blue and silver air force jet landed. 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 jj (iHVHila !! -V11t ill HiltiU sVi)t!ft fiiail VVmlU& pifetyihlnVtW If?1 V iiv jiitsj. MfUiJHi9!rrsi i?m vui!ltiflMrsr!MfiW5s&ij5t'Hisii!

Standing side by side in the lobby of the Geneva Inter-Continental hotel after their 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 that Kissinger will try to arrange when he returns to the Middle East in March. The communique covered most of the points of the talks held at the end of Kissinger's exploratory mission to the Middle East but it contained no new positions. o n ft- w r -v . JF '-wweaaiBBBBBBBBBBlaBBaBaMK- MAAP MOBILE TESTING SYSTEM Texan sets presidential bid moving by Steve Gerstel United Press International WASHINGTON Texas Sen. Lloyd Bentson Monday joined the growing brigade of" candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination and claimed strong support in most of the major states. Bentson. 54. promised to run an energetic, national campaign but added it would be physically and financially impossible to enter all the primaries leading to the 1976 convention. Bentsen is the fifth Democrat to formally declare his candidacy for 1976. The others are Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington. Rep. Morris K. Udall of Arizona, former Oklahoma Sen Fred Harris and former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter. Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace and possibly former North Carolina Gov. Terry Sanford are also expected to jump into the race. Bentsen. a millionaire former business magnate, said he was in the campaign for the duration and told a large crowd of well wishers in the Senate caucus room. "I wouldn't have entered the race unless I thought I could win." Asked whether he would accent the vice presidential nomination. Bentsen replied: I should say not." In a news conference following his announcement, the senator said his strongest support was in Texas. But Bentsen. who has toured 30 states in the last year testing his prospects, added "I found strong support in almost all the major states I've gone into." Bentsen's announcement mixed the goals of his candidacy w ith strong criticism of the Nixon-Ford administrations. For too long we have been adrift." Bentsen said. "This administration, which has been in office since 1969. has failed to govern with either wisdom or foresight. It has bounced from crisis to crisis. It has reacted to the problems of the moment. It is without specific goals. It is without sensible plans." Bentsen rejected President Ford's proposed 1 million barrel a day cutback in imported oil as an ill-conceived program and said he was absolutely opposed to Ford's requcsti tur an auumunai jjuu nmiiun in aiu to South Vietnam.
