Legion May Buy Former Food Store The Carroll American Legion discussed buying the Moore Brothers Building, 422 E. Seventh St., at the monthly meeting Tuesday night. The Maurice Dunn Post No. 7, American Legion is considering moving to the Moore Building instead of renovating its present building at 200 E. Fifth St., Historian LuVem Olberding said. The Legion also discussed buying the lot east of the former supermarket to provide more parking spaces, he said. "Members feel it will be cheaper to redo the Moore building than remodel our own," he added. The Legionnaires have debated the future of the present downtown Legion dubrooms for several months. In January the members rejected' a $121,000 remodelling plan for its present building. Members will vote on the purchasing of the building or remodelling of the building at their next monthly meeting on May 11, Olberding said. First Vice Commander Bill Stickrod distributed 10 pins for state membership and 15 national pins at the meet ing. .,0n May 13 at 8 p.m. an orientation for those attending Boys State will be in the Legion clubrooms. W.H. Dentlinger and past Boys State delegates will meet with the 1976 candidates from Carroll, Audubon, Calhoun and Crawford Counties. • Taxes (Continued From Page 1) fiscal year: —Cities with populations over 750 and counties would be limited to a 9 per cent growth in the part of their budgets supported by property tax. —Agricultural land tax credits paid by the state would be increased from the present $18 million to $42 million. — The state would pay the property taxes based on the first $4,500 of a homeowner's assessed valuation. — Income eligibility level for property tax relief to the elderly would be raised from $8,000 to $9,000 a year and the state would pick up half of any special assessments against that group. In 1977-78 and 1978-79: —Property tax boosts to support local budgets would be limited to 7 per cent, except that local officials could raise property tax askings up to 9 per cent if .they hold an extra public hearing to explain the reason. Increases of more than 9 per cent would be subject to State Appeal Board permission. —Agricultural land tax credits would return to the $18 million level but farm land would be assessed 100 per cent on productivity instead of half on market value and half on productivity, as now. — The state would pick up the taxes on the first $5,000 assessed value of each homestead. — Tax relief for the elderly would continue as in the first year. In addition, a state task force would be created to study property taxation and local government financing and report its findings to the legislature next January. Norland explained the plan would do nothing in the first year except return to taxpayers the approximately $55 million that would shift from state funds to property tax under the state school aid formula if the legislature did nothing.

There were no injuries but one resident of an apartment over the lounge was not accounted for. "We heard things popping like there was an electrical short." said Jackson. "We tried to telephone the fire department but the line was dead." Jackson said his son. Larry, ran about a block to city hall to summon firemen. Authorities said that two persons occ'uppied an apartment above the lounge next to Jackson's apartment. One resident escaped but firemen said they did not know if the other man was in the building at the time of the blaze. "I heard somebody yell •fire' in the other apartment," said Jackson. "I don't know how anyone could have got out of there." The blaze was brought under control about 6a.m. Good Subsoil Moisture in Carroll County The subsoil moisture situation in Carroll County has improved dramatically since last fall, according to Roland Lickteig, Carroll County extension director. He reported Wednesday that subsoil moisture samples taken recently contained 11.4 inches of plant available moisture in the top five feet of soil compared to 4.7 inches when the fall samples were taken in mid-October, 1975. The subsoil moisture sample in Carroll County is taken on the Albert Klocke farm two miles west of the radio station. Lickteig said the 6.7 inch increase since last fall is greater than normally expected during the winter. The large increase was due to favorable rainfall in the late fall before the ground froze and again this spring after the soil thawed. Subsoil moisture normally increases one to two inches from fall to spring. Subsoil moisture data is obtained by sampling the soil at one foot intervals to a depth of five feet. Lickteig explained that the five-foot depth is used because that is the depth from which corn and soybean roots will normally extract water for growth. The samples are sent to a laboratory at Iowa State University where they are dried and the amount of moisture determined. The amount of plant available moisture in the soil is then determined by subtracting from the total moisture the amount of water below the wilting point for the soil. This water is not available to the plant because it is held tightly by the soil. Lickteig added that farmers should look at subsoil moisture as "money in the bank." It is important during July and August when rainfall is usually below the heavy moisture demand of the crop. He cited the 1975 crop season as a good example when the subsoil moisture carried the crop through a record dry July. Had the subsoil moisture not been available to the crop the dry July would have caused much more severe yield reductions. Most of the soils in this area will hold about 10 or 12 inches •of plant available moisture according.Ho Lickteig. The recent-samplings indicate that • "we are approaching field capacity." When soils get above field capacity problems such as ponding and wet working conditions cause reduced crop growth. Even though subsoil moisture is plentiful, farmers still could use a weekly rainfall to keep the moisture in the top four inches, the extension director said. This topsoil is where all the crops are planted and every time the soil is worked it dries out. he added. Most Carroll County farmers will start planting corn next week and soybeans after May 10. All the oats have been seeded, Lickteig said. School Bonds Lose at Galva GALVA, Iowa (AP) — A $350,000 school bond issue for remodeling and expanding the current facility failed here Tuesday.

No small part of that results from your Carroll County roots and the fact that I do so well remember Timothy J. Ryan. Who could forget him! "I can still see him — tipping his hat with no small flourish to every man, woman and child on his side of the street and some on the other. He was a character! "And further with regard to Carroll County. I was interested in your re.marks about the ethnic and religious makeup of the county. Yes, the east side of the county was solidly Protestant and more or less Anglo-Saxon. Whereas, from Carroll on west, as you so well know, it was solidly Catholic. In the early days — and by that I mean in the World War I era and sometime after that —. persons attempting to work in the county, such as county extension agents, found it indeed quite difficult. There was little cooperation back and forth from the east and an agent that did well with the Catholics and the Germans and the Irish on the west side would frequently not have much in common with those of us on the east side. But happily much of that has washed out in these recent years and I was pleased to note that the new hospital there in Carroll, run of course by the nuns, received great support from all over the county — clear to the east side...

Clark's Bill Curbs Power of Presidents WASHINGTON (AP) . Legislation to prohibit presidents from making major international commitments without Congressional approval was introduced in the Senate Wednesday by Sen. Dick Clark, D-Iowa. Clark said the measure is an attempt "to set right the last major imbalance of power still existing between Congress and the executive branch in the area of foreign affairs.'.' Clark, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the measure would require that all major international agreements entered into by the United States be approved as treaties by two-thirds of the Senate. "The effectiveness of the measure derives from the fact that virtually every major international agreement involves some funding ;requirement,"saidGlark. i "The funding cutoff might hot be immediate, since funds might be available under legislation enacted previously, but the executive branch will be placed on notice that somewhere down the line, it may face an empty wallet if it fails to meet its constitutional obligations." Clark said the measure would establish specific guidelines and procedures for the Senate to use in exercising the treaty-approval, powers outlined for it 'in the Constitution. Homeowners Will Protest ISU Land Sale AMES, Iowa (AP) — A spokesman for a group of Ames homeowners says the group will appear before the Iowa Executive Council to protest the sale of 25 acres of Iowa State University land to the university's research foundation. Dr. Gary Fanning, a spokesman for the Country Club Heights Neighborhood Association, said the group feels the state Board of Regents was wrong to approve the sale without competitive bids. The board approved the $130.000 bid of the Iowa State University Research Foundation and rejected the association's bid for $150.000. The foundation, a nonprofit corporation that raises money to finance faculty research at ISU. plans to sell the land to a private developer who would be required to develop the land as a "planned unit development" containing 258 apartments, 163 townhouses and 20 single-family homes. "We feel it is wrong for a public institution to sell public land without opening it to public bids," said Fanning. At first, he said, the homeowners were angered about the foundation's proposal to put apartments and townhouses in a neighborhood, "but now we are locked in an argument over principle. We feel it is unfair for a public institution to do this with public lands bought with public money,"
