Rate hike for water opposed LEBANON A regular meeting of Water District No. 1 here tonight will be attended by a delegation from the Fair Play Committee of Water District No. 1, a self-styled group of "dissatisfied customers." Lewis Maddux, president of the Fair Play board, was not available for comment Monday night, but his son said that more than 30 people attended a Monday night meeting at the Laclede County courthouse to discuss plans for attendance at the district's meeting tonight. The district's meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. at its office near the courthouse. The Fair Play group is seeking signatures on a petition by "dissatisfied customers" protesting an "inflationary" rate hike at a time when the district reportedly had a surplus of $384,000. Maddux's son said the increase in water rates for an amount over 4,000 gallons was 150 percent. He said the 14-year-old district serves more than 1,500 customers in rural Laclede County. Robbery suspects transferred Three rubbery suspects were released to Polk County authorities Monday after being held in the Greene County Jail during the weekend. They face first-degree robbery charges for the shotgun holdup of Smitty's Liquor Store near Polk County KK and Missouri 13. Walter Wallace Painter, '27, no permanent address; Thelma G. Howard, 22. Wil-lard; and Rita Ann Butler, 19. of 2038 N. Weller, were arrested by Greene County sheriff's deputies about an hour after the holdup. Polk County authorities said a man wearing a stocking over his face got about $200 to $250 in the 9:35 p.m. holdup. The shotgun used in the rubbery was stolen from a Greene County home earlier Saturday, deputies said. It was among several items taken from the Gail Branstetter home, they said. Branstetter identified the shotgun deputies found while searching the trunk of the suspects' car with a warrant, deputies' reports indicated. Lt. Joe Stropp said other items taken from the Branstetter home have not been located. Cars CaitiaiH fram Page IB "It seems like cars are going up less than anything else lo the economy," Wolfe said. People are getting improved-quality cars, whereas they are paying more for other items and getting the same thing they got five years ago, he said. Don Wessel. owner of Don Wessel Oldsmobile llonda, 3520 S. Campbell, said car buyers resist price increases for a short time but generally adjust to them. "We go through this every year," he said. "People think it over and then come back." Frank Hathcock. owner of Springflcld-Llncoln Mercury, 1226 S. Glenstone. noted that the size of a car does not necessarily determine Its price. Some of the smallest car in the worlds re the most expensive because of what is put into them, Hathcock said. "Small cara are precision built," he said. "They have to perform at the very best to get that super gas mileage the government has demanded and still be smog-free " If car companies didn't have to Increase prices, they John Powell to chair state GOP committee By KEITH WHITE Our Capital Bureau JEFFERSON CITY - Jt.hn Powell of Rolla temporarily mil become the new chairman of the Missouri Republicans today as state committees of both parties meet here as required by law to reorganize and choose new state chairmen. Powell has agreed to serve only until after the November general election and then step down in favor of Springfield banker Tom Fowler. Powell said Fowler will get "the same votes that I get. Unless there's some drastic change, it'll be a very large majority." Missouri Democrats are expected to reelect with little discussion current Chairman Tom Cox of Kansas City, a personal choice of Gov. Joseph Teasdale. The meetings today are the culmination of elections held Aug. 27 in which Republicans and Democrats in each of the state's 34 Senate districts elected two members each. Five new Democrats from southwest Missouri will take their places on the Democratic State Committee today. They are Don Roller of Sparta, Sam Ilanira of Springfield, Lloyd Paden of Stark City, Mary Davis of Joplin and Fred Mackey of Preston. Re-elected to new terms on the committee were Neva Maddox of Crane, Billie Babb of Springfield and Katie Francka of Brighton. Two southwest Missouri seats on the Republican State Committee changed hands at earlier senatorial district meetings. They are Jim Spradling of Carthage, who replaced William Denny of Carthage, and Viven Vincent of Springfield, who replaced Carolee Hutcheson of Houston. Re-elected to the committee were Bob Wiley of Crane, Diane Crain of Branson. Tom Fowler of Springfield, Audrey Wiser of Springfield, Marno Williams of Neosho and Jim Dickerson of Camdcnton.

Former bank president sentenced The former president of the Bank of Hermitage has been sentenced in U.S. District Court here on charges of misappropriation of bank funds. Michael C. Freeman, 32. Hermitage, pleaded guilty July 29 to two counts of a five-count indictment. The other counts were dropped as part of the plea bargaining arrangement. Thursday Freeman was fined $2,0110 on a count accusing him of making a $8,900 loan entry in a fictitious name and an offsetting credit entry to benefit a corporation he Owned shares in. He was given a suspended sentence and one-year probation on another count charging him with making a $30,000 loan y Murder Continued (ram Pan IB Cole, who used the alias Roger C, Pepper, said he was in the area of Mrs. Sal-kil's apartment the day of the murder because he dated a woman who lived nearby.

Emission-control equipment has added to the cost of the new cars, Wessel said. "There will be a few more pollution devices on cars for '81, which will raise prices considerably," he said. The 1981 car will be a little bit cleaner, he said, but the cost will be passed along to the consumer. Auto prices also are going up because the cost of labor, steel, rubber and glass are up, Wessel said. Although the demand for small cars Is expected to continue, the dealers indicated that larger cars also are selling. The big and mid-size cars are not selling well elsewhere, Thompson said, but they are selling in the Mid-west. People In the Midwest may be buying the larger cars because they have to drive longer distances, he said. Harold Neeley, sales manager for Friendly Ford, J24I S.

Republicans will not formulate their state party platform today but the Dimho-crats will. State law also requires the committees to formulate and make public a platform, but the Republicans are goim,' lo wait until later this month so Powell' can apixiint members of the platform committee. State party chairmen must be members of the state committees. The rhaiiuv in Republican leadership was prompted by the unexpected defeat of current chairman Bill Macon of St. Louis. Macon's loss was blamed not on dissension between the party's moderate and conservative elements but on Republicans in his home Senate district who were disgruntled because he hadn't paid enough attention to them as chairman. Powell did not actively seek the job but was the logical choice when Macon wjs ousted because he had taken a major rule in putting together the St. Louis Campaign Committee, which is consolidating fur all campaigns many of the functions that the slate party normally would handle in an election. "We had already merged the (GOP presidential candidate Ronald) Reagan organization into the state organization," he said. And as director of the overall committee, Powell was second only to Macon. That also made him a logical choice. "I happen to be more familiar with the organizational aspect of it than anybody," he said. "Several of us who have been working for three or four years to develop a state political organization have urged John to take over as chairman of the state committee on an interim basis," Fowler said Monday. "Both John and I have talked to people all across the state and there's almost unanimous support for John running." !11 4 Statl PhotoJane Mohnen -.J 'IS. :.i J, A 4 taM V f - g VI entry to fictitious persons and an offsetting credit entry to benefit another person.
