Officials Pleased With Iowa's Refugee Programs By Norwin Merens (Iowa Daily Press Association) DES MOINES — Federal officials are very pleased with Iowa's programs for Southeast Asian refugees. Jerry Nell, assistant coordinator of the state's refugee program, made that observation after a delegation from the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare visited Iowa earlier this month to assess the state's program. More than 2,700 refugees have settled in the state since South Vietnam fell to the communists last spring. Of this total, 2,000 are Vietnamese, 600 are Tai Dams (Laotians) and 100 are Cambodians. "The officials who came to Iowa as part of the HEW Refugee Task Force were very impressed with how quickly the refugees have adjusted to life here/' Nell said. Coleen Shearer, director of Governor Robert Ray's Task Force on Indo-Chinese resettlement, said she is also very pleased with the reception the refugees have received in Iowa. "The resettlement in Iowa is the greatest bicentennial story the equivalent to aid to of all," asserted Shearer,' a dependent children.

West on Hwy. 30 - 792-3185 commissioner on the Iowa employment security commission. "We have had a great deal of interest in the programs. In fact, many sponsors, including church groups, have expressed an interest in sponsoring more refugees." She alluded to the Tai Dam refugees. "When they (the Tai Dam) began arriving here last fall from Camp Pendleton, Calif., and Fort Chaffe, Ark., sponsors were responsible for finding housing and jobs for them. Now, many of the sponsors have assumed the responsibilities of setting up checking accounts for the refugees and getting them involved in their communities," Shearer said: Astrology 11 At present, many of the refugees are employed as custodians, auto mechanics, chicken processing plant employees and a number have filled food service positions in restaurants. Shearer said the biggest problem for most refugees is the language barrier, "but this should disappear in time." -0- The number of people from Indo-China now living in Iowa who are receiving federal assistance is still on the up-swing. State officials report that in February 620 persons were receiving federal aid, which is figure. Besides receiving a cash assistance, all 620 are eligible for medical assistance. In addition, 215 persons were eligible in February for medical aid only. These figures are a little misleading though, according to officials in the state department of social services, because some of the people who applied for medical assistance only did so as a precautionary peasure and were not actually receiving any aid. The entire cost of the program is borne by the federal government through the Humanitarian and Evacuation Act of 1975. The program runs out this year unless renewed by Congress.

Any contract or contracts awarded under this Invitation for Bids are expected to be funded in part by a Hundreds of lowans Lose Their Pensions By The Associated Press Hundreds of Iowa workers are without old age security they thought they had because many Iowa employers have terminated their employe retirement plans. Several employers cite a complicated federal law as the reason for ending the pension. "It's a damn crime," said Ed Paulsen, president of the John G. Miller Construction Co. of Waterloo. "Our employes were shocked when we ended our pension plan. But we feel we can't live with the federal law, and we're not going to put anything in its place." Nationwide, about 5,800 plans have ended since the beginning of 1975, according to figures from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. in Washington, D.C. The Iowa figure is 100. Paulsen noted three provisions of the law most responsible for the termination. Don Hartkopf, president of Allied Engineering Co. in Atlantic, which dropped its pension plan earlier this year, listed the same three. One holds the employer liable for up to 30 per cent of his net worth if the government determines at any time that pension assets aren't sufficient to cover guaranteed benefits. A second provision defines any employe who works more than 1,000 hours a year as a covered employe. This hurts employers who hire seasonal help who previously were not covered in pension plans. The third provision spells out extensive reporting and disclosure requirements. The requirements, which mean hiring accountants and actuaries, increase administration costs for pension plan sponsors. grant from the United States bn- vironmental Protection Agency. Neither the United States nor any of Its departments, agencies or employees is or will be a party to this Invitation for Bids or any resulting contract.

B.N. Brown Jr., president of the group, said "the continuously declining cattle markets has reached the disaster level." There should be a ban on beef imports for 180 days, as well as an in depth study of the new U.S. Department of Agriculture beef-grading standards, the telegram said. "While these factors may not be the complete answer to the problems currently facing the cattle industry, we feel that such action will at least stabilize the market and allow feeders an adjustment period," said Brown and Harlan Hummel, chairman of the chamber's agriculture committee.
