By Cathy Kuster (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES — Damage caused by vandals in Iowa's state parks has more than quadrupled in the last 10 years. Joe Brill, superintendent of state parks in Iowa, attributed the increase to the greater number of park visitors. In 1965. 81 cases of vandalism were reported, causing $2.664.20 in damages; last year 141 cases caused $12,868.13. a record. A total of 13,038,415 people visited Iowa state parks last year, compared to 9.039. 199 in 1965. "I hope we've reached our peak in vandalism and can start working our way down," said Brill. "Stealing and destruction of signs are the major kinds of vandalism, but breaking windows in lodges ranks high, too." added Brill. A break-in at a museum at Fort Atkinson, a state park on the Mississippi River in norhteast Iowa, contributed to last year's record. "Vandals stole antique guns totaling $3.000 during the off-season while nobody was guarding the museum," said Brill. Fort Atkinson, constructed in 1840 by the U.S. government to protect Indian tribes from one another, is open six to eight months a year. The state maintains 66 parks, and new lake sites are being developed. The four parks with the highest vandalism rate each year are near metropolitan areas. These parks are Margo Frankel Woods in northwest Des Moines; Walnut Woods, in West Des Moines on the Raccoon River; Stone, near Sioux City; and Wild Cat Den, between Muscatine and Davenport. Walnut Woods reported 30 cases last year (twice as many as any other park) and $644.27 total damages. "We apprehend quite a few r Busters | SAVE!

Officers are assigned to and live in most state parks. The big season for vandalism at state parks begins around Memorial Day and ends around Labor Day, said Brill. "Vandalism is really bad when three or four schools surrounding a park are on break at the same time. Kids Investment Clubs Interest Increasing NEW YORK (AP) — Interest in stock investment clubs is rising again after declining sharply during the dark days of the economy. Planning for the future, rather than merely securing the present, looks attractive again. Also spurring interest is the quick recovery of some clubs that continued to invest during the big price decline of 1973 and 1974. and which thus picked up blue chip shares at tarnished goods prices. Many clubs during the past year have outperformed the returns obtained -by professional portfolio managers. In the 14 or 15 months ending with December 1974. one club reported its value increased 212 per cent. Thomas O'Hara, chairman of the National Association of Investment Clubs, reports inquiries on the rise again, suggesting strongly that the number of member clubs soon will rise above the current recession-induced total of 7,000. The clubs, which in effect are small, private mutual funds that are managed as well as owned by the members, generally involve about 12 people of similar goals, although often of dissimilar but complementary skills. The clubs permit members to learn about investing, to invest small amounts at a time, to spread the risk through diversification, to compare investment research and, if they do well, to see their assets grow. Their importance seems to have been underscored by the recent decision of the New York Stock Exchange to discontinue sponsorship of the Monthly Investment Plan. which permitted small investors to buy even fractions of shares. Merrill Lynch continues to operate its Shareholder Plan, which is similar, but other brokers seem to have lost interest in — and it is claimed, money on — small accounts. Clubs fill this gap. Although their purchases may be in round lots of 100 shares or more, the individual members' percentage of the total often is an amount that most brokers wouldn't consider handling. Generally a club has informal beginnings among a few friends, each of whom invites others to an initial discussion meeting at a home or office. If agreeable, a second meeting may be scheduled. : Those who return usually are genuinely interested in organizing, the details of which may be obtained from the Association's manual, which costs $5, a sum that is returned if the club becomes a member. Although some large clubs might have 25 or more members, O'Hara believes most clubs initially operate best with about 12. Officers generally are elected at the second meeting, and two or three members are assigned to research and give reports on stocks. A broker 'also is chosen tentatively and invited to attend future meetings. The most common investment per person is $20 to $25 each month, although $5 or $10 often is as effective an amount as $50 or $100. The clubs regularly invest their assets, usually each month. Dividends are reinvested. While successful clubs PAINT SPECIAL ave Up To $1.94 Gal.

"We've already had 12 cases reported this year, but nothing major as yet. The $13,000 we spent last year to repair the parks could have been used for better facilities and more and better help," said Brill. never need join the National Association, there are advantages to doing so. Dues are $15 a year, plus $3 for each member, which entitles the club, among other things, to a $25,000 bond. The latter, which protects members against misappropriation and theft, is an often-used benefit, said O'Hara, who relates the unfortunate news that some clubs formed among the best of friends do not always share the best fates. Membership also includes the monthly magazine, "Better Investing," and the opportunity to buy assorted material — charting and bookkeeping items, for example. The magazine is also available to nonmembers for $6 a year. The National Association of Investment Clubs is at 1515 East Eleven Mile Road, Royal Oak, Mich., 48067.
