Ray Cites Pollution of Air, Earth Hy Don Muhm (The Regititr'i firm Editor! Cov. Hubert I). Kay Monday railed for "crash program intensity" in developing priority for conservation practices to combat man's mounting erosion and pollution problems. Ray noted growing problems Involving pesticide contamination, loss of topsoil and air pollution. He spoke at the twenty-third annual conference of the Iowa Association of Soil Conservation District Commissioners at Hotel Savcry. About air pollution, Ray said: "There has been a 10 per cent increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide during the past century, with a 25 per cent increase possible by the end of this century. No one is sure just what effect this could have, but it might be castastrophic for man." On pesticide contamination, he said: "We're adding 100 million pounds of DDT to our environment each year, after man already has ruined 1.2 billion acres of his planet through erosion and salination." The result of such things, Ray said, is that man "through human mismanagement of his resources" has created a dangerous slate in his environment. Survival Need , "The people of this country, including politicians, have come to realize that the very survival of our posterity requires priority for conservation practices with nothing less than crash-program intensity," the governor added. About 500 persons are attending the three-day soil conservation conference which ends today. Eugene Swartz of Lenox was honored as Iowa's 1969 "Watershed Man of the Year" Monday What Do You Think? Question: The Midwest is often considered lacking in cultural attractions. What is your opinion about that? (Antwert obtained Downtown ) LILLIAN JOHNSON Lillian Johnson, of 4925 Franklin ave., a housewife: "I don't think it is culturally lack ing ai all. l think we have some wonderful cuiitural things here. There aren't many states that have a better art center than ours. Also our KRNT theatre is as big as any in the nation. We have some wonderful programs both there and at the auditorium. Our libraries are also something to talk about. As far as dancing is concerned we see a great deal of ballet on TV although not much on the stage." Phil Wallace, a senior at Roosevelt High School: "It's definitely true. Des Moines is really out of it. In Chi cago, at least, there is something to do. Here all they have are phony dances like the one on the bridge. Even when they fixed up the bridge it still looked ragged. The only reason I didn't go was that I couldn't see myself dancing on a bridge. The art center is crummy, too. It has the same paintings month after month. The con certs at the auditorium are really bad. When you go you can't hear anything." John Tapscott, 39, Democratic state representative from Des Moines: "No, I don't be lieve so. I believe that we have as much culture and sophistication as any of the Eastern cities. For example, the Iowa legislature in the 1902 General Assembly established the Iowa Arts Council. This certainly shows that we do have an awareness of the need for additional culture in our state. I think we have the finest art center in the Midwest and the United States, the finest stage shows here." JOHN TAPSCOTT We have some of PHIL WALLACE Ronnie Woods, 24, of Des Moines, a reservation agent: "I think we're culturally up-do-date. Most people get the idea that we're a hick town. We have a good art center, though I've heard several people say it isn't as up-to-date as some in the United States. We have the Playhouse, KRNT and stage shows. I guess, though, that we are lacking in entertainment for young peoople. There are concerts at the auditorium but there aren't enough of them. They're also much too expensive."

Hy Nick l.amherto Floren Dil'aglia, well known j Iowa golfer facing four charges in connection with an armed robbery attempt, was released on $15,000 bond Monday from j the Union County Jail at Eli.a-l beth, N.J. Union County officials said the bond, reduced from the original $25,000, was posted by DiPaglia's brother, Raymond, a Des Moines motel operator. The two are believed to have flown back to Des Moines immediately afterward. Dil'aglia is charged with armed robbery, assault with intent to kill a police officer, receiving stolen property and carrying a concealed weapon. A hearing has been set for Sept. 29. Officials said DiPaglia could waive to the grand jury without showing up for the Sept. 29 hearing.

FLOREN DiPAGLI A Moines and Sioux City, charging him with assault with a deadly weapon, assault with intent to kill a police officer and armed robbery. DiPaglia and Parks are ac cused of trying to rob Mrs. AI- con (Irene) Margules at the $50,000 Margules home in an exclusive section of Springfield last Thursday. John Callahan, first assistant prosecutor of Union County, said he had approved the lowering of the bond from $25,000 to $15,000 after DiPaglia's attorney, former judge Richard O'Connor, had asked that it be lowered even more. Jail Transfer "I felt that $15,000 would assure his appearance," Callahan said. DiPaglia, who had been held in the city jail at Springfield, N.J.. was transferred last Fri day to the county jail at Elizabeth, seven miles away. Margules is a clothier in New York City, police said. "So far, we haven't been able to establish a connection between the family and DiPaglia," one officer said. "It's very intriguing. "There are a lot of unanswered questions, such as how the men knew about the Margules home in a 'very cim-fortable neighborhood' and her jewelry." A $4,000 ring and a $300 watch belonging to Mrs. Margules were found on DiPaglia, police said. 1 MISHAP KILLS 3 BOMBAY, INDIA (AP) Iowa members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) gave $8,171 to llm denomination's Reconciliation Fund to combat race and poverty ills, the national office at Indianapolis, Ind ., reports.
