Ray's Theme Is Progress And Economy By The Associated Press Progress with economy is ithe major theme of Republican Gov. Robert D. Ray's campaign for a second term in Iowa's Nov. 3 general election. Ray, a trim, graying 42, was a Des Moines lawyer whose elective jobs had been limited to Republican party positions, including four years as state chairman, when he ran successfully in 1968 to succeed Democratic U.S. Sen. Harold Hughes, then a three- term governor. Ray believed Iowans were disillusioned—and still are—over big state tax increases in 1967, and ran on a promise of no general state tax increases. A Republican-controlled legislature helped him keep the promise during his first term. The governor says his basic approach has been threepronged: stress economy and efficiency; set priorities and shift available funds to meet them; and emphasize economic Worried About Bills?

Take Your Pick finance company Fort Dodge development for the long-term good of the state. The result, he says, has been that "this administration has been able to give more services to more ctizens, provide more for education, more for social services, more to fight crime and pollution, to help cities and towns, to promote agriculture and economic growth than any previous administration—and without raising taxes." Stressing his conviction that government should live within its means—as opposed to what he calls the Democrats' "tax and spend" philosophy—Ray says: "When I came into office the state treasury was virtually bare. If we had approved all the increased appropriations asked of us it would have been easy to add seven cents in sales tax. Somebody had to say no, and that somebody had to be me. We had to find ways to live within our means, to do a better job with what we had." Such an approach first of all dictates maximum economy and efficiency of operation. To that end. Ray named a blue-ribbon Governor's Economy Committee of Iowa businessmen who donated their time to study state government practices. The committee's 592 recommendations, issued last winter, projected total savings of some S23 million a year. Ray says more than half the recommendations have been acted on administratively — but the big money-saving proposals require legislative action, which he advocates. Specific accomplishments Ray cites include: — The Work Incentive Program, a federally aided project to get welfare recipients to work and off the relief rolls. —-Revitalization of the Iowa Development Commission with new emphasis on Iowa's major industry, agriculture. — A 23 per cent increase in state aid to local school districts and a 60 per cent increase in aid to area schools. — State grants to help cities and towns qualify for federal funds to build sewage treatment facilities. — The Iowa Crime Commission's work in helping launch and obtain federal funding for local and regional projects to improve law enforcement. —A comprehensive attack on drug abuse, including educational programs and beefed-up law enforcement efforts. —An increase in cities's and towns' share of the Road Use Tax Fund to the highest level in his^ry. — Creation of a "citizens' aide post to help Iowans cut through red tape in their dealings with government. These and more, Ray says have been accomplished without a state tax increase. And though he is not flatly promising to hold the tax line for two more years, he pledges an increase would come "only as a last resort." Linked with the governor's theme of progress with economy is his criticism of his Democratic opponent, Robert Fulton of Waterloo, and others for an alleged cynical pessimism as they view Iowa's and society's problems. "There is an aura of pessimism and negativism in this country, but the people won't stand for it," says Ray. "There are those who would paint the broad stroke of gloom and doom at a time when it's easy to be pessimistic," he says. "But i beiieve we nave snown that we can solve our problems." Essential to combating the pessimism, Ray says, is to declare a "moratorium on misunderstanding" and to avoid the tendency to classify persons with labels and divide into opposing groups, practices which he says tend to divide society. "We have to listen instead of shouting, feel instead of fearing and reach out instead of withdrawing to our respective corners," he says. "It is vital that Iowans, and all Americans, decide differences of opinion on the basis of reason, not wild rhetoric and certainly not violence," says Ray. FREE GRAND PRIZE DRAWING - REGISTER!

Asks Scherle to Override Nixon's Veto Seventh District Democratic Congressional candidate Lou Galetich, today called on his GOP opponent, Rep. William J. Scherle, to put public interest above political partisanship by voting to override President Nixon 's veto of the Camaign Broadcasting Act of 1970 when congress reconvenes in November. "The veto override will determine whether only the rich can run for major public office in America in years to come," Galetich said. "And the people of the Seventh District have a right to know, before the Nov. 3 election where Mr. Scherle stands on this issue." Noting that Scherle voted against the bill when it originally passed the House in August and failed to vote because of his absence from Washington on the conference report when it received final house approval in September, Galetich said: "The question is whether Mr. Scherle will have to rubberstamp this blatantly partisan veto." The measure would limit the amount of money candidates for federal and major state of- One Out of Two Housing Units Built In Next Five Years Will Be Apartments MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Within the next five years, it is estimated that one out of every two new housing units built in the United States will be an apartment. Despite rising costs, the apartment industry is booming, with the government playing an increasingly large role, industry sources say. Last year, apartments accounted for about 40 per cent of the approximately 1.4 million new housing starts, Jenard M. Gross, president of the National Apartment Association, said. Timet Herald, Carroll, la. 1 "I Wednesday, Oct. 28, 1970 • 1 Of the 2.4 million housing units expected to be built in 1075, apartments will account for at least 1.2 million, he predicted today in a speech prepared for the Mortgage Bankers Association convention. The tremendous surge in population among people in the 20 to 34 age bracket, and those over 5, is fueling this apartment upswing, he said, describing these age groups as "prime apartment markets." fices could spend on radio and TV commercials and would prohibit broadcasters from charging political candidates more than regular advertisers. Galetich then pointed out that a prominent radio station in southwest Iowa said they er- rored in quoting radio time to him. Radio spots were quoted at $3 and $4.25 for one minute spots and this was changed to $18 and $10 per minute. Thirty second spots were quoted at $14 and $8 according to a "national rate card." This type of excessive cost will certainly mean that only the rich or only those candidates who are financed by special interests will be able to run for public office," Galetich concluded. "The reasons for vetoing this measure are phony, and Mr. Scherle knows they are," Galetich said. "The President's main criticism was that the bill plugs only one hole in a sieve, yet it is common knowledge that the largest hole in the campaign-spending sieve is the cost of broadcasting." Many apartment complexes now include golf courses, recreation rooms, bars and gymnasiums, he said. Family projects even have day nurseries with baby sitter services, he added. Apartment complexes, which once contained no more than eight to 10 living units, are now being built for thousands of families he said. This trend toward biguess, Gross continued, brings new capital requirements. A 6,00- unit project being built in Atlanta, for example, will cost some $12 million, he said. The problem of financing new construction is further exacerbated by zooming costs, Gross said, pointing out that interest rates and labor expenses have almost doubled in the last five years. This is leading some builders to sit on their shovels. National Real Estate Investor magazine WEST IS BEST quotes Chicago developer Anthony Belli as saying he no longer finds it profitable to build new apartments. Similar trends in Detroit and Columbus, Ohio, were cited by the magazine. Part of the slack, though, i3 being taken up by the federal government which is subsidizing apartment construction under the Housing Act of 1968. "The percentage of apartment construction done under federal housing authority auspices is growing by leaps and bounds," an FHA spokesman said. The figure jumped from 8 per cent in 1967 to 12 per cent in 1969, and 1970 estimates range as high as 18 per cent, he said. »*• *J» »J» ij* »Je •** »*• **• «JMJ» •J»»J» *J» »J* *J> *l* *l+ *!• »t* MAMA KNOWS!
