McCOV Managing Editor, Newton Dally New* Newton (fly-The nationwide steel strike fs beginning to show its effect on the economy of Newton and Jasper county and the situation will become more critical in the near future unless a quick settlement of the steel strike dispute is reached. This was the consensus among Newton and Jasper county Industrialists expressed in a survey made by the Dally News. Several of the larger Industry officials report they are deeply concerned over the critical steel short- ago and are making plans to cope with production cutbacks. » * * THE MAYTAG CO. has already announced that production at its plants will not he resumed until at least July 28 after the regular .vacation period which starts July 3. Company officials add, however, that it may be necessary to delay the start of production beyond that date if critical materials are not available, Automatic Washer Co. officials said most of their production is geared to government contracts and they are in better shape than many industries with production schedules of civilian goods. A spokesman for tho company said there is no immediate danger of production curtailment at the plant. * # * IT IS A DIFFERENT story at the Parsons Co., H, J. Holdsworth, general manager said spot shortages In sice and grades of material arc occurlng now. He said production schedules will be maintained until the vacation period starts July 3 but added that unless the strike is settled it wilt be necessary to curtail production to a certain extent after the vacation period. Approximately tho same situation occurs at the Winpower Manufacturing Co. E. A. McCardell, president, said the company's steel allotment was cut 20 per cent by their supplier and now no steel is forthcoming. He added that supplies are sufficient for two or three weeks. Most of the other industries in Newton and the county report some pinches are being felt now but are of the opinion they will be able to keep going if a speedy sc-t- tlemcnt of the stsel strike is made. Lakes Sewer District Will Receive Aid Spirit Lake (./P>—Tho Iowa Great Lakes sanitary sewer is now qualified to receive a $350,000 appropriation provided by the 1951 legislature, State Senator Jay C. Colburn (R-Harlun) says. Colburn, chairman of the Iowa legislative Interim committee, made the statement yesterday after a joint meeting of the committee and the sanitary district hoard of trustees. * * * THK LKGISLATURK made the $350,000 available on condition the district take over the financing of the sewer, built by the WPA. The legislature also specified the district should levy taxes to pay for operations and needed extension and free the state of its longstanding financial obligation other than sewer rental on state-owned property. The. committee action was taken deHpite the fact that three municipalities in the area have filed un Injunction suit against the district. Tho municipalities are Spirit Lake, Arnolds Park iind Okohoji. * * * COI,RUR\ SAID the decision was bused on the premise that tho sanitary district had taken over operation ol the syulem May 1 according to its agreement with the Btatu and that the board of trustees was fully qualified to continue Its operation despite the injunction suit pending In Dickinson county district court, Colburn said this decision was (supported by an opinion from the state's attorney general's office.

Dwlght Elsen hower's aides snid "the Jlgf Is lip" for Sen. Robert Taft, another reported today Elsenhower will go to the Republican convention to direct his campaign for presidential nomination. The "Jig Is up" quote cnmc from Elsenhower's campaign manager, Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. of Massachusetts, who flew to Denver yesterday for a conference with the retired five-star general. It was quickly attacked by.-Taft'* campaign manager, David Ingatls, who said bluntly: "It just Isn't so." Son. Henry Cabot Lodge (R- Mass.) announced don. Ellsonhow- cr will move to Chicago next week too set up campaign headquarters for tho Republican presidential nomination. * * # LODGE, THE general's , campaign manager, said Elsenhower would continue to meet with the Republican delegates to the national convention. "It has been impossible for him (Elsenhower) to meet all tho delegates who wanted to sec him during his short period at home," Lodge »ald. The Massachusetts senator said tho move was made on his recommendation. He said detail* would be announced later today at the Chicago headquarters of Ihc-for- Presldent. Meanwhile, Lodge said ah Important shift In delegate opinion has made certain his candidate will get the Republican nomination. * * * TIIK ASSOCIATED PRESS tabulation of pre-conventlon delegate strength, with all 1,206 GOP delegates named, now. shows Taft has the support of 483 to Elsenhower's 405. Others have a total of 129 d there arc 186 In dispute or uncommitted. This tabulation, like that in the Democratic race, is based on avowed and conceded alignments. It often conflicts, with claims of the": candidates themselves. Tafii« Tor example, nays he already, has tho majority required for nomination—604 votes—and Lodge says Elsenhower will get more than 800 on the. first ballot at Chicago.

Living In construction camps and refugee centers, always In fear that they would be arrested by tho sccri-t police and sent to Russia as slave labor, their most impressive comment on America Is, "It's a comforting feeling to hang up your clothes at night und see them still there in tho morning," None of the family speaks English but the smiles on their faces and the way they said "sehr KUl" (very good) when asked if they liked EBthervlllu would have been hard for any person unskilled l>> languages to misunderstand. Maria, 17, the oldest daughter, expressed her liking for American picnics, church circles and chewing gum.
