Dole Intr Bill Congressman Bob Dole (R ,-Kans.) introduced a compro- mise REA supplemental finan- cing bill late Wednesday even- ing, The bill, H. R. 7698, is similar, in many respects, to H, R. 1400. In introducing the bill, Con- gressman Dole stated he felt chances for approval for a "good" supplemental financing bill were improving. "Howev- er," Dole stated, "it appears unlikely that H. R. 1400, the so-called 'Poage bill', or the 'insured loan proposal', H. R. 7390, first introduced by Con- gressman McMiilan, will be acceptable to a majority of the members of the Committee on Agriculture. "The proposal I introduced eliminates many of the objec- tions raised by Investor-owned utilities to a supplemental fi- nancing system structured through a bank. but it pre- serves the proper and histori- cal role of Rural Electric Co- operatives," Dole indicated that he has requested representatives el both the rural eleotrtcs and velopment on ordnance phases !of nuclear weapons design. Sandia conducts these opera- [ttons for the Atomic Energy Commission. Mr. Lathrop joined Sandia March 21, 1952. He is presently a member of the Track and Guns Division at the Corpora- tion. He is married and lives at 11732 Fox Point Ave.. N.E.. Albuquerque. investor-owned utilities to com- ment on his proposal at the earliest possible time. "I am also hopeful that Congressman Poage, Chairman of. the Agri- culture Committee, and Con- gressman Belcher, ranking Re- publican, will agree to hear tetsimony on H. R. 7698 follow- ing Easter Recess." The attached memorandum explains the basic differences between the Dole proposal, H. R. 7698, and H. R. 1400, the Poage proposal. H. R. 7698 Is basically H. R. 1400, with a number of major modifications: i. Intermediate credit loans at 4 percent are eliminated, and one single interest rate is provided. 2. No acquisition or expan- sion is permitted, and Ba~k loans may be made only for servicing borrowers in "rural areas", as defined in the pre- sent Act (i.e. towns and vill- ages with less than 1500 popu- lation). 3. Government capitalization of the Bank is provided at the rate of $75,000,000 per year over a ten-year period, and all such capital is repayable to the federal government at 2 )ercent per annum. 4. The transferable certifi- cate of ownership section is amended by deleting the pro- vision which requires State law to specifically authorize cooperatives to adopt provi- sions for such transferable ownership rights, i 5. The size of the Board of Directors is reduced from 13 to 7, with appropriate reduc- tions in governmental and bor- rower representation. Employ- ees of cooperatives would be ineligibZe to serve on the Na- tional Electric Bank Board. 6. Add, as one additional loan criteria, the density of consumers per mile of electric line when the Bank deter- mines whether a borrower ~hould be required to borrow from the Bank at the cost of money rather than from Sec- tion 4 funds at 2 percent in- terest. 7. Reduce the net worth cri- teria on bank loans from 40 percent to 30 percent of assets in determining whether" a her. 'ower will be eligible for a loan from the Bank at the cost of money or from Section 4 funds at 2 percent interest. 8. Permit appeal of bidding procedures in regard to gener- ation and transmission loans by the Bank to be lodged with the Federal Power Commis- sion. This provision provides that any party in interest who has suffered and will suffer economic injury as a result of any decision of the Electric Bank Board may invoke the power of the Commission un- der Section 207 of the Federal Power Act. Appeals from FPC decisions may be taken to ap- propriate U. S. District Courts. 9. Require that all loans made by the Bank .be on an amortized basis, rather than permitting such loans to be made on a basis whereby borrowers would pay only the interest on the Indebtedness during the life of the loan. 10, Delete Treasury backup of Electric Bank debentures. All electric debentures would be the exclusive obligation of the Electric Bank. NOTE: Loans at 2 percent under Section 4 of the Act could continue to be made for all purposes now permitted in the Act, such as generation, transmission, and distribution. No changes are made, at this time, in the Telephone pro. visions of this legislation. cotJes of H. R. 7e0S win tm available for dlstrlbution by Friday, March 24.

"Daddy," he said, with tears welting in his eyes, "have you heard about that old bill in the State Legislature at Tepe- kaT" "What bill. son?" I asked. "That bill about no guns for anyone under years old," he cried. I was acquainted with the bill, and readily understood Kelly's concern.

The only classlfl- cation which showed a decrease from the previous year was the special control- led shooting area license and relatively few of these licens- es are normally sold. According to Robert Ward, chief of the fiscal division for Commission, the total li- cense sales in all classes amounted to 477,355. This re- presents an increase of 24,6a 4 compared to 1965. " [ The largest increase was in l resident hunter permits. 166. 747 Kansans purchased hunt- ing licenses, an increase of nearly thirteen thousand 'over I 65. Resident fishing license sales total'246,653, an in- crease of more than six thou- sand. Nonresident. fishing and hunting license sales also showed sharp increases. 14, 07"/ persons from outside the state purchased huntin licenses while 11,532 out - staters thought enough of Kay- sas fishing to buy an annual permit, In addition, 7,520 non- resident trip fishing licenses were purchased. " Combination resident licenea sales totaled ,478, up 897 over the previous year. Even trappin licenses exhibited an increased interest; 2.140 were sold, a gain of 166.

In fact, lye dreamed often of those days. Kelly has learned well .- well enough that I have prom- Ised him a .410 shotgun for next Christmas, He had reason for concern when he heard the news about the bill in the Leg- islature There's doubt the bill will be passed, of course, especial- ly since the Legislature -- in a wise move -- adopted re-i solution early in this year's session asking the U.S, Con- gress to oppose the noteriotm Dodd anti-flrearms bill. The Dodd bill, of course, is well known, and would not only Ira- pose dozen of restrictions on purchase of firearms, it would lead to their registration, me- thods of transport and ship- meat, how and where they could be purcha , and who m/ ht own them. Dodd's meuure has m;ppo necessary for license holders who hunt quail, pheuants and prairie chicken, were purchas- ed by 180,6 persons in The increase in the stamp sales amounted to Just over twelve thousa,d. Drouth Poses Problem For Nesting Birds The nt drouth plaguing farmers m,~' rat-~hers over much of Kansas may pose a threat to summer production of pheasants, according to Bob Wood, game biologist for the: Forestry, Fish and Game Com- mission. Should the dry weather on- tinue, adequate nesting cover 'may be scarce in the main pheasant range, with poor hatching success and reduced nesting resulting. Wood pointed out that phea- sent nesting normally starts in late April and early May. Continued drouth will limit the growth of vegetation ne- cessaW for successful nesting.
