Gov. Robert D. Ray, successful in his bid for re-election, is hoping the tax study committee will not tie itself to any specific proposal, but instead will recommend several alternatives. The committee is scheduled to meet in Des Moines Thursday and Friday to start hammering out a program for presentation to the 1971 Legislature. Will there be a major tax increase? "I can't predict what the Legislature will do," Ray said in an interview. "But I think we're talking about two different things. One is raising taxes, the other is adjusting the tax structure. "The hope, of course, is to live within our means . . . our economic growth, which we have been able to do on the state level . . . "I think that any tax increase would have to coupled with solving the tax problem so that every time the Legislature meets it is not confronted with the same problem." He recalled that the 1967 Legislature raised more than $100 million in new taxes, largest single tax bite in the state's history, with the promise this would relieve the property tax base. Ray said this hasn't worked. What's the answer? "I've been interested in the foundation type approach on financing education with some control on spending so we are not faced with this problem every year." The foundation concept, Ray explained, would result in the state providing "X" number of dollars toward the education of each child in public schools, anything beyond this level would have to be provided locally. "We can't afford a one cent increase in the sales tax every year and at the rate of the increased spending, even with declining enrollments, that's what we are faced with now." In winning re-election by 35,000 votes over Democrat Robert Fulton, Ray conceded he didn't receive any "mandate" from the voters. But at the same time Ray feels committed to do everything in his power to "hold down spending." In reviewing his past two years in office, Ray said he always has looked every place else before going to the taxpayers for increased revenue. Ray thinks this philosophy has carried over to the tax study committee as indicated by the research the committee has put in on the subject. "They are not shooting from the hip with generalities . . . instead, they are trying to find out where the money is going and what it is doing. "I don't feel you can slice off one part of the tax structure and pick it apart and say well these people are spending this much money, or it is going in a certain place; I think you have to look at the whole picture." In reflecting on the campaign, Ray feels "in most cases, people reported the news fairly and accurately and did a good job. But I can tell you it was disappointing when charges and accusations that were unfounded and not factual were played out of proportion by some. A good example," he continued, "was the charge the state was broke, that the state was not paying its bills and those they were paying were delayed. That was not responsible." The governor concedes that the state is going through the throes of a tight financial pinch. "But," he noted, "we started out with an empty treasury and through innovations we've met our obligations; we've done it with the cash flow. We're just like a family or a business. We pay our bills with the money we've taken in and it's not easy when you don't have a surplus or extra money sitting in a bank account." Ray acknowledged that the financial pinch will continue; some political observers think the pinch will be the greatest in February. But Ray is confident that tbCstate will continue to operate in the black and will have a balanced budget at the end of the current biennium on June 30. He also is anticipating some legislative inroads on implementing recommendations of this economy committee. The committee made nearly 600 recommendations which, if implemented, could, in the words of the committee, save the state $23 million annually. On the election outcome, Ray thinks he may have lost some votes in the rural areas because of a drop in farm prices. He agreed that people have a tendency to "vote their pocketbooks." While he personally voted against holding a constitutional convention to revise the state's constitution, Ray thinks the Legislature, and the state, has a moral obligation to hold one if that is the wish of the people. "I think it is presumptuous on the part of legislators, a governor or anyone else, to say that we shouldn't have one because people really didn't want it. If they didn't want it, they shouldn't have voted for it." Flying Tank Armor - plated helicopter withstood barrage from both ball and armor- piercing projectiles.

Lawmakers to Elect New Floor Leaders DES MOINES (AP) - One of the firslt pieces of business facing lawmakers when the 1971 Legislature convenes in January will be election of floor leaders. Both Republicans and Democrats will have to pick new Senate and House leaders, since none of the leaders from the 1969-70 session will be back. Three of the 1969-70 leaders Metropolitan Branch Expands The Carroll branch office of Metropolitan Farm and Ranch Mortgages, 202 West Seventh Street, in addition to servicing the western half of Iowa, has expanded its operations to include western Minnesota and eastern South Dakota. The office writes and services long-term farm and ranch real estate loans. This expansion of territory will make a substantial increase of outstanding loans on portfolio. Nine fieldmen service this area in addition to nine clerical personel in the Carrol office. Thomas M. Gaffney is manager with Darrell J. Sunderman, assistant manager. Hot off the Wire did not seek re-election. And the fourth, Sen. Minority Leader Andrew Frommelt of Dubuque, a Democrat, was defeated Tuesday by Republican Sen. John Walsh, also of Dubuque. Frommelt and Walsh were put in the same senatorial district under a redisricting plan passed last year. This reapportionment was made necessary by a 1968 Constitutional Amendment that cut the size of the Legislature—the Senate from 61 to 50 seats and the House from 124 to 100. Republicans retained control of both houses — the Senate by a 38-12 margin and the House by a 63-37 margin. In the 1969-70 session, Republicans had a 44-17 edge over the Democrats in the Senate and 86 to 38 margin in the House. Frommelt was the last floor leader. The Republican floor leaders of the 1969-70 session, Sen. Robert Rigler of New Hampton and Rep. Ralph McCartney of Charles City, said they did not have time to devote to annual sessions and bowed out. House Minority Leader William Ganon of Mingo gave up his seat in his unsuccessful bid against Robert Fulton of Wa- Legislature . . . See Page 2 Formidable Handbag looks like some sort of weapon.

Truce to Continue, But Peace Talks Hope Dim By The Associated Press The Suez Canal cease-fire will continue after its expiration time tonight, but there is no prospect for a resumption of peace talks despite tihe U.N. General Assembly resolution urging Israel and the Arabs to start negotiating again. The semiofficial Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram said President Anwar Sadat had ordered Egyptian forces to continue the truce for "a further short period," but not for another 90 days unless progress is achieved in the current peace efforts at the United Nations. Sadat coupled this with an order for a full alert on (the canal front 'regardless of any political developments."' Al Ahram said Egypt will continue to observe the cease-fire "until the completion of current discussion at the United Nations and accompanying international efforts." This was seen as a reference to Egypt's campaign in tihe U.N. General Assembly to force the Israelis to return to the indirect negotiations for which U.N. envoy Gunar V. Jarring is tihe go-between. Israel had caid earlier that if would continue to observe the cease-fire until fired on, even if /there was no formal agreement to extend it. But the Israelis remained firm in their refusal to return to the negotiations unil Egypt pulls back antiaircraft missiles which Israel charges were shifted forward in the Suez area alter the standstill agreement went into effect Aug. 7. Egypt has been just as adamant in its insistence that its redeployment of missiles along the canal has not violated the cease-fire and that none of the rockets would be pulled back. The Jordanian government also was considered certain to extend the cease-fire though there has been no formal announcement from Amman. Since the 1967 war, the Jordanian army has left offensive action against Israel to the Egyptians and the Palestinian guer- Hartke Claims Victory in Indiana Senate Race INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) Democratic Sen. Vance Hartke claimed victory today in his photo-finish race with Republican Rep. Richard L. Roudebush for the Indiana Senate seat.

With all but three of 4,440 precincts accounted for, the unofficial tabulation Showed Hartke with a 3,698-vote lead—865,439 to 861,741. CLARION (AP) — Two major oil companies, Standard and DX, have been fined $100 apiece in Justice of the Peace Court hare in connection with fire safety measures at their bulk plants.

Dx was fined for failing to make modifications ordered by the fire marshal's office. PARIS (AP) — The North Vietnamese ambassador insulted President Nixon at today's session of the peace talks and got a severe dressing down for it, a U.S. spokesman reported. Steven Ledogar, the spokesman, said that "in a sharp exchange at the end of the meeting personally insulting remarks by Ambassador Xuan Thuy were made about the President of the United States of America." Ledogar declined to repeat what he said were insults but related the reprimand delivered by U.S. Ambassador David K.E. Bruce: "I would like to say to the chief of the North Vietnamese delegation that his choice of words and his attitude in these last few minutes with regard to President Nixon is shameful and completely inad- misible. "At least one should be courteous if one cannot be quiet." AMES (AP) — Judge Ed J. Kelley of the 11th Judicial District retained his seat on the bench in the general election despite the fact he was the only judge not endorsed by the Iowa Bar Association. The judge received better than 2-1 approval from the voters to keep his seat. All the other 47 district court judges and an Iowa Supreme Court justice, who were en­ dorsed by the Iowa Bar, were given voter approval to stay on the bench. SAIGON (AP) — U.S. reconnaissance jets have detected an extensive buildup of war materials in the southern provinces of North Vietnam awaiting shipment to Cambodia and South Vietnam, Air Force Secretary Robert C. Seamans said today. Concluding a three-day inspection visit to Vietnam, Seamans said American bombers have stepped up raids along 200 miles of the Ho Chi Mirth trail through southeastern Laos. However, he said that to the best of his knowledge U.S. planes were not attacking the staging areas in North Vietnam. WASHINGTON (AP) - Reinforced House Democrats may present their own economic pro­ gram if the Nixon administration does not change its policies, according to Rep. Carl Albert, the chamber's prospective new speaker. NEW YORK (AP) - A Paris- bound Pan American World Airways 747 jumbo jetliner carrying 163 persons including Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., was forced to return here Wednesday night after being buffeted by severe clear air turbulence that injured 14 passengers and six stewardeses. WASHINGTON (AP) — A United States Army Division that now guards about 18 miles of the Korean demilitarized zone, probably will be pulled back and put in reserve when American forces are reduced in South Korea, Pentagon sources say. rillas, and now it is so occupied trying to keep the guerrillas fro m overthrowing King Hussein that it probably could not take effective action against Israel if it wanted to. The first 90-day cease-fire period ends at midnight ki Israel and Egypt—5 p.m. EST. Yugoslavia and 20 Asian and African supporters of Egypt pushed a resolution through the General Assembly Wednesday calling for a 90-day extension and immediate resumption of the Jarring talks. The resolution was approved 57 to 16 with 39 abstentions. The United States and Israel opposed it. Israel had two objections to the resolution: It included a specific call for her to withdraw from the territories seized in the 1967 war and it calls for resumption of negotiations while ignoring the cease-fire violations charged by Israel. Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban told the Assembly that this emphasis on Israeli withdrawal threw off balance the Security Council resolution of November 1967, which laid down the framework for a Middle East peace agreement. U.S. Ambassador Charles W. Yost told the assembly that the resolution was "clearly ... put forward in behalf of one side to the conflict and represents the views of that side." He said its adoption constituted a "step backward, not a step forward." Israeli Premier Golda Meir said in London today that Britain has moved toward the Soviet Union and France in its approach to the Middle East conflict, leaving the Mideast See Page 9 Robert Dorpinghaus, R.N.

Following an explanation of the proposed annexation and the accepting of objections, the hearing was recessed until Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 10 a.m. when rulings of the objections are expected to be handed down. ' A Greater Role for Women in the Mass VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican today issued a detailed reform of ithe Mass Billowing women a greater role in the liturgy. It also in effect sanctioned such musical modernization as rock and soul Masses if the local bishop approves. Women now can lead the congregation in hymns and scripture reading, except for the Gospel, and can serve as usherettes and collection-takers. They are still barred from serving as acolytes, even in convents or women's chapels. In many Roman Catholic communities, including those in the United States,. women already have been performing the permitted duties on an experimental basis. The reform also permits: —Celebration of Mass outside the dhurch, such as in the home, but only with permission of the local bishop in oases of "real need." —Selection by the local bishop of music for the Mass, without excluding any instrument or style. —Experiments in the Mass within "cleanly defined limits," to be conducted only for one year, then reported to the Vatican for permission to continue. The document urged that "all means be used to promote singing by the people." Jazz, rock and folk Masses were not mentioned specifically, but the document said the music "must serve the worship of God." "Great care should be given to the choice of musical instruments," the document continued. "These should be few in number, suited to the place and the congregation, should favor prayer and not be too loud."
