Carroll Daily Times Herald Vol. 101—No. 277 Return Postage Guaranteed Carroll, Iowa, 51401, Tuesday, November 24, 1970—Twelve Pages Evening for SO Cents Per Week 10c Copy Supervisors, 4 Other Towns Sign; 8 Left to Act City Approves Agreement for a County Landfill The Carroll city council Monday evening passed a resolution accepting the articles of agreement to establish and govern the operation of a Carroll County Solid Waste Management Commission. The agreement was signed earlier in the day by the Carroll County Board of Supervisors and has been passed by the town councils of four other municipalities in addition to Carroll. They are Arcadia, Lanesboro, Ralston and Templeton. "There are eight towns left to take action on the agreement and I expect to hear from them before the end of this week," H. J. Kienapfel, secretary of the landfill commission, said Tuesday morning. The towns expected to take action on the proposed agreement later this week are Breda, Coon Rapids, Dedham, Glidden, Halbur, Lidderdale, Manning and Willey. The articles of agreement are for the purpose of "developing, operating and maintaining" solid waste facilities as a joint undertaking of units of government of Carroll County. The parties to the agreement, if accepted by all, would be the municipalities of Carroll County or adjoining counties with the Boards of Supervisors repre­ senting the unincorporated rural areas. The commission would operate as a non-profit organization. The establishment of solid waste facilities became necessary when the Iowa legislature passed a law banning all open burning, thus doing away with the present "city dumps." The law was to take effect last summer, but the city of Carroll has received an extension to March 1, 1971 to allow time to provide the solid waste facilities before being forced to comply with the law. Studies have shown that a minimum population of 10,000 people is necessary for it to be economically feasible to establish and operate such a facility. Following a review of such reports, area officials took steps to provide the necessary facilities on at least a countywide basis. The actual operation of the commission, according to the agreement, "may commence at such time as two units of government join this commission, in the manner provided, and the joint agreement is recorded with the County Recorder and filed with the Secretary of State." The governing body of the commission will consist of an elected representative of the governing bodies of each participating governmental jurisdiction. The commission membership will elect a chairman and vice-chairman. The full commission will then elect a five member executive board to actually manage the solid waste facility. The agreement states that at all times, one member of the executive board must be from the City of Carroll and one member will also be from the Carroll County Board of Supervisors. The remaining three members will be elected from the members of the commission as members- at-large. The terms of the members of the executive board will be staggered, with one member being replaced each year. The board members for the initial term will draw ballots to determine the length of their initial term in office. The actions of the executive board are to be reviewed by the full commission at the commission's regular semi-annual meetings. The executive board will have control over the operation of the solid waste facility, but will not have the authority to regulate the manner and method of pick-up of any solid waste in any municipality, nor will they have authority to bind any municipality as to charges for pick-up and delivery unless the -municipality itself agrees to such regulations by written consent. The method and charges for pick-up will be regulated separately by each municipality and the Board of Supervisors for unincorporated areas. The executive board may also "hire or appoint a director and such other supervisory, clerical and other personnel as are necessary to carry out the functions of the executive board" and also has the power to fix the compensation and other benefits for such personnel. The full commission must prepare a budget based on calendar years for the opera­ tion of the solid waste facility and then will request each municipality and county unit to provide in its budget for its share. The commission budget will be proportioned on a population basis. The agreement states the commission shall annually "adopt a percentage formula for the commission membership based on population as shown in the last completed federal census, or special federal census, whichever is latest, for the purpose of allocating the portion of the commission budget each municipality will Council ....

Add Equipment to Hospital Department The Inhalation Therapy Department of St. Anthony Hospital, which opened March 1, 1970 has recently acquired several new pieces of equipment, according to Ron Henkenius, director and chief anesthetist The department is an allied health specialty for the treatment, management, and control and care of patients with deficiencies and abnormalities associated with the processes of breathing. New equipment to facilitate the department's functions include an ultrasonic nebulizer, pulmonary function recorder and equipment for the treatment of pressure sores and A 'Thrifty 9 Hunter Winds Up in Jail AUDUBON — An Omaha youth tried to save a few dollars on his hunting license here Friday but it cost him an extra $44 and he wound up without a license and no pheasant. Roger L. Reeves, 19, of 1423 Pasadena St., Omaha, pleaded guilty Friday night before Justice of the Peace Nellie Nelsen to a charge of failing to have a valid hunting license. The story began earlier Friday when Reeves and a companion, also from Omaha, arrived in Audubon to do some pheasant hunting. They went to the court house where the companion purchased a nonresident hunting license for $20. But Reeves tried to save a few dollars and gave a fictitious name and address in Des Moines and got his "resident" license at the standard $3 charge. While the pair was hunting near Exira later on, Conservation Officer Marlowe Ray of Guthrie Center, who serves as the game warden for Audubon and Guthrie counties, noticed the car with Nebraska license plates. He stopped them to check their hunting licenses. Ray decided to check out the name and address on Reeves' license. He had used the name "Mike Neuby" and gave an address on Guthrie Avenue in Des Moines. When both proved to be phony Ray arrested Reeves and took him before Judge Nelsen. Reeves phoned his parents in Omaha, who came to Audubon to get their son out of jail Friday night. Judge Nelsen fined the youth $40 and costs, and his "resident" hunting license was voided. skin ulcers. The ultrasonic nebulizer has the capability of delivering medications into the smallest division of the lung. The pulmonary function recorder tests lung capacities and the rapidity with which people breathe. This can deliver early warning sdgns in the case of respiratory diseases, Henkenius said. A new treatment for pressure sores and certain skin ulcers has also been initiated at St. Anthony Hospital through the Hospital ....

'TILL CHRISTMAS I Senate Revives Angry War Debate WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt., said today the nation faces disaster unless President Nixon puts a bipartisan foreign policy ahead of partisan domestic political considerations. And he called on Nixon to restore "the habit of consultation between the White House and the Congress, for only consultation gives substance to the idea of bipartisanship." Aiken, senior Republican member of the Foreign Relations Committee, delivered a broad-ranging foreign policy speech that criticized both policies and the way in which the Johnson and Nixon administrations have abandoned consultation with the Congress. Referring to last April's U.S. move into Cambodia, Aiken said had the President chosen to consult with the Senate in advance, "I think he would have spared himself and the country much grief. Some of us might have been in a position to stand up and help him, if not by praising his words then at least by supporting his deeds." Aiken spoke in the midst of the revival in the Senate of angry debate over Vietnam, spurred by the weekend raids into North Vietnam including the unsuccessful bid to free American prisoners near Hanoi. Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird came to Capitol Hill today to brief members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on the weekend action. The Foreign Relations Committee, center of war criticism, also was trying to arrange a session so its members could be briefed on the possible policy implications of the latest war moves. Sen. J. W. Fulbright, joined by fellow Democrats Edward M. Kennedy and George S. McGovern, carried the dove's fight Monday when he called the weekend actions "a very major escalation of the war that, it seems to me, will entail greatly intensified conflict." This, suggested the Arkansas Democrat and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, "would seem to indicate that the actual policy is to escalate the war and to seek a military victory." Fulbright reacted to the unsuccessful attempt to liberate Americans erroneously thought held in a camp near Hanoi by saying the commando strike was "certainly a very provocative act to mount a physical invasion .... " Sen. Robert J. Dole, R-Kan., defended both the bombing raids and the commando action in an exchange with Kennedy marked with such heavy sarcasm as to strain normal Senate courtesy. about the efforts that were being made, new efforts, new initiatives," Kennedy said to Dole. "Is the senator satisfied that this (commando raid) provides a much better way of freeing the prisoners than negotiations?" "The best way is through negotiations," the Kansas Republican responded. "But negotiations have failed. What do we do in the meantime? Sit back and wait?" Kennedy then asked "whether the American people ought to be prepared for other strikes such as this? Are we going to have other kinds of surprises similar to this?" Dole said he didn't know but We have heard so much| Senate .... See Page 2 Chief Steps Down; to Stay on the Force Carroll Police Chief Alvin B. Bruning informed the city council by letter Monday evening that he will not apply to be reappointed as chief of police when his present term expires on January 1. Chief Bruning, who has served in that capacity for 15 years and has been a member of the Carroll Police Department for 22 years, said in a letter addressed to Mayor William S. Farner, "While I have enjoyed my work down through the years, I feel that with the increased obligations, this is a job for a younger man. My reason for letting you know at this early date is in order to give you as much time as possible to find a replacement." Chief Bruning did, however, request that he be given a position in the department as an officer. "In giving up the position as chief of police, I would, however very much appreciate having the opportunity of continuing on the force as a police officer," he wrote. Mayor Farner assured Mr. Bruning that he would be re- Development of New Bean Markets Outlined to Group —Staff Photo Police Chief Al Bruning fained as a day officer in the department. No formal council action pertaining to the letter was needed. The letter was not a letter of Bruning . . . See Page 2 The field director of the American Soybean Association md the chairman of the Calhoun County unit addressed a meeting of farm leaders here Monday night preliminary to a campaign to organize the soybean producers of Carroll County. Elmer Schettler of Carroll, who heads the organizing effort, said the campaign date has been changed from Dec. 9 to Dec. 10 to avoid a conflict with the Kiwanis club's annual crop yields contest event. Soybeans are a significant crop in Carroll County, Schettler said, with about 70,000 acres being planted each year, producing $5.5 million in revenue for farmers. Schettler pointed out that the proposed soybean organization would in no way compete with the pork and beef industries as its main emphasis is development of new markets, particularly overseas. Local farmers will be asked to contribute a half cent per bushel to finance the market development program. "Every dollar of the farmer's Demos Elect; Assert Finances Will Hamper Iowa Tax Reform DES MOINES (AP) - Iowa's finances are in a "catastrophic condition" which will hamper any efforts alt badly needed tax reform, in the view of State Sen. Lee H. Gaudineer Jr., D - Des Moines. And that, he says, will be the key issue facing the legislature next year. Gaudineer's views will hold significance in the State Senate next year, as he has been elected minority floor leader. "It will be difficult to resolve the tax dilemma because of the condition the Republicans have gotten this state into," Gaudineer said after his election at a Democratic caucus Monday. 'Taxes will probably have to be raised just to meet the budget even without any tax reform," he added. Republicans have talked of a tax freeze next year during reform efforts. But Gaudineer said such a freeze would be premature. And State Rep. Dale Cochran of Eagle Grove, elected minority House floor leader, said he would be "totally against a tax No Paper on Thanksgiving The Daily Times Herald Will Not Be Published on Thanksgivng Day, Thursday, November 26. freeze." "This is no way to solve some of our governmental problems in a responsible way," said Cochran. "The repercussions could cause more problems than the ones we face today." The Democrats chose two men to help Gaudineer in the Senate: Sen. James F. Schaben of Dunlap, assistant minority leader; and Sen. C. Joseph Coleman of Clare, minority whip. House Democrats, after a 2V2 hour caucus, elected Rep. Berl A. Priebe of Algona assistant House minority floor leader. Rep. A. June Franklin of Des Moines was re-elected House minority whip. Democrats in the Iowa Legislature are outnumbered by Republicans 63-37 in the House and 38-12 in the Senate. "We will continue to articulate Demos .... See Page 2 money invested in developing new bean outlets results in the sale of an extra 1,000 bushels of beans," Schettler pointed out. At Monday night's meeting, Merlin Groat told how Calhoun County had organized a year ago and what it plans to do this year. He said that when farmers were contacted about 90 per cent agreed to participate. Merv Syverson, the field director for the national association, told what the association does, primarily developing markets and opening new doors for soybeans throughout the world. In Japan, he said, efforts of the association have increased the per capita consumption of soy oil from less than five pounds per person per year to nearly 20 pounds. This has been accomplished, he said, through consumer advertising and cooking schools. The ASA, he recalled, was able to take $150,000 of grower funds with other money from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and put on a $­ lion promotional effort last year. For every one-pound increase Beans ....
