Around The Rotunda Pay Differential Between Justices, Profs Questioned By Harrison Weber DES MOINES — Some legislators are privately questioning the salary differential between members of the Iowa Supreme Court and professors on the staff of the University of Iowa's College of Law. The dean • of the law school, David Vernon, is being paid $34,500 a year, which is $10,500 more than the Supreme Court justices receive. Records on file in the board of regents office show six law professors receiving more than $24,000 which is the salary set by the Legislature for the nine judges. The board of regents determines the salary of the law professors. "When compared with other Big Ten university law schools and other high courts in the states with such schools, salaries of both groups are relatively low," Dean Vernon observed. Both groups rank in the lower half among comparable institutions in salaries paid. "I frankly see no particular relationship between law shool professors' salaries and the compensation of high court justices," Vernon said. The law school and the Supreme Court, Dean Vernon remarked, share the common goal of effective administration of justice. "Of course we urge improvement of justices' salaries as one measure for maintaining good administration of justice, just as we believe in the building and retention of an outstanding law faculty at Iowa . . . which requires us to offer competitive salaries. They are naturally important to the future of legal and judicial services." He said the salaries paid to Supreme Court justices are tied for last (with those in Wisconsin) among the states that have a law school in Big Ten schools. (Other states are Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota and Indiana.) The differential between the Iowa Supreme Court justices' salaries and salaries paid by these states to their high court justices range from $500 to $16 000. Dean Vernon said the average salary of the law faculty at Iowa is fifth among the seven law schools in the Big Ten. The average for full professors is sixth. "We have tried to maintain a third-place rank for average compensation, but we have now slipped well below that position, which will adversely affect our ability to hire and keep the high quality faculty we now have." The word "psalm" is derived from ancient Greek and means "to play a stringed instrument." Juergens Tells Rotarians About Turkey Business Turkey, the traditional American holiday favorite, is winning wide acceptance in many foreign countries, according to Vernon H. Juergens, Carroll consultant who sets up turkey businesses throughout the world. Juergens, who spoke to the Carroll Rotary Club at Tony's Restaurant Monday night, said turkey with its preponderance of white meat is much in demand throughout Europe and is gaining in Africa and Asia. Europeans generally favor white meat, he said. Italy has one of the largest turkey enterprises, Juergens said. He pioneered the business there six ' years ago, starting with 30,000 birds. This year Italy is raising 8 million turkeys, he reported. Europeans like turkey, the Carroll consultant said, because it is cheaper to produce than any other meat product with the possible exception of fish. As Europeans are quite "health- conscious", they appreciate turkey for its low calorie, high protein content. Juergens said the two biggest 10 Times Herald, Carroll, la.

He said he fears the bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives placing restrictions on trade may result in an international trade war that could seriously affect U.S. farm exports.

Let us just sit down today and talk about what is going on about Carroll. But first, in answer to the many questions on the Great Fire story. Where did we get such detailed information? We don't usually confide this in strangers, but we are reincarnated. Your writer is one of the horses that pulled the wagon loaded with law books. We lived in a time of carraigeless horses, and that explains why we are always finding yellow envelopes under the windshield. To us, they are hitching posts with clocks. —0— May we take this way to thank the Carroll man who gifted us with a stamp and refused money at the post office Tuesday eve. The dispensing machine was not feeling well, and the man kindly offered stamps. Your license was 141664, and you are truly a gentleman of the old school, which one we can't say, but thank you again. -0— Have to tell you a little funny inside story: One recent eve while making our way back across town, we made an abrupt about-face to admire picture frames in Schroeder's window. Then continued onto the Super Valu, where we read two books, while shopping, and came out to learn from two teen passengers that the po-leece were circling the car. (Borrowed). True, two black-and- whiters were there and followed at a respectable distance all the way to 18th. Now, before we go any further; let us explain, that once in northern Iowa we were threatened with jail because we unwittingly went through a light on a bank building, of all places. It was a traumatic experience, and left us with an eternal fear of lawmen. So when we turned onto Benjamin and the red light came on, we were willing to show them where we hid the body. No lie! We can see why people confess to crimes of which they know nothing. This was a very cordial policeman, however, and he asked if we had parked beside a pickup truck. You know women. All she s£w were the picture frames in the window. We denied a pickup truck, because we weren 't aware of one, until one of the teens said, "Yes, there. was a truck there." In the end, we learned tapes are being stolen from parked autos and we happened to be driving an out-of-county car, and it was late. All explained, and the nice officer went on his way. We went home and shook. And the next night we sneaked back and got put, and whistled and looked guilty, and got a closer look at Schroeder's pictures. So, while we didn't know the officer's name, we thank him for being kind, and doing his job. Too bad he was so nice. He could have cleared up a lot of old crimes. We confess to anything. -O— There is a little attic window at the Arthur McNaughton home which nine-year-old Maria thinks would be a wonderful spot for an antique dolly. And she is right. -O— Didn't you enjoy rainy, gloomy Thursday! First, a lot of Carrollites spent the morning waiting for 11:00 and the annual Methodist Ladies bazaar and luncheon. We wish we had space and time to have previewed the event. Now we only can say it was great. The best bazaar we had seen in a long time. The needlework and crafts were the product of a lot of hands. We enjoyed the luncheon, stopped at the candy booth, talked a little theater (what else) with Carol Blincow, and children with Kay Teague. Made small talk with C. E. Mcllvain and his pretty lady, Capt. Singsank from the Good Ship, Fareway, Estyl and Bob Wright, Jean Reed, Agnes Heider, Deah West, Nancy Raridon, Ila Jensen and smiled at a lot of nice Christian faces and received smiles in return. It is fun to walk among the various displays at a bazaar. The fast world we live in seems to fall away and we are lost in a calm purl one-knit two dream. One sight joyous to our far-sighted eyes, all the Carroll men who took time to enjoy the noon luncheon. We studied all the contented faces and decided middle age and the years ahead is the best time of life. Once a friend told us, "You just mellow." We enjoyed seeing all you mellow people, and took home two hand-painted plaques by Gertrude Bauerle and put thern by the fireplace. Now we will always have a part of that day to keep. Bought a pie, (and some jelly to send to Vietnam), broused in the book shop and ran out into the rain to visit EHerbroek's grand opening. Saw beauty everywhere! Bernie Burgess on the Mall greeting shoppers at EHerbroek's, and did not catch a glimpse of one Keith, and decided they had all collapsed beneath the counters from fatigue, or were out to lunch, the latter, we hope. _0- Discovered the Knit Shop over Woolworth's building this past week. If you are just new to Carroll, don't wait two years as we did to find it. -O- Don't miss Char-Mer's at 1040 North Crawford for hand-made Christmas gifts. Who says you have to go out of town to shop. Neffer! -O- And as we have said before, no one asks us to mention them. No one gifts us with little knitted footwarmers, or anything. We merely mention something we find we think you too, might enjoy. -O- On Thursday, we bring you an amusing visit with Bon Brechler, who tells us all about "collectible". It is called 'Grandma Would Be Amazed'!! We really should share the byline for much of its content is the product of Bon's wit. All who know her will tell you how they love her sense of humor. Mrs. Brechler has been collecting antiques, for over twenty years. Don't miss Thursdays column. • Thanksgiving (Continued From Page 9) ing Day. P e r h a p s the faith, courage and thankfulness of Americans today — handed down to us from the Pilgrims 349 years ago — will become the heritage of Americans 349 years hence. As we celebrate Thanksgiving Day, 1970, dare we dream of the giant strides that are surely to take place in the next 349 years in the fields of science, education, medicine, agriculture, business, industry, transportation and space exploration? Can we foreee a world of peace or will it be a world marred and scarred by more war as men continue to seek freedom? Will there still be a "lest gen. eration" such as there is today, with little or nothing for which to find thankfulness in their hearts? Will small children still be memorizing the lines by Emerson as table blessing? in Children Visit R. Lewis Home (Times Herald News Service) WESTSIDE — Spending the weekend with Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lewis and family were their son and daughter, Richard and JoAnn, who are college students at Ames; and two college friends, Merilee Bednex from Rochester, Minn., and Ruth Brower from Maurice. Don Stender and Tim Richert from Le Mars were weekend guests at the Johnnie Stender home. Katihy Doyle of Sigourney spent the weekend with Dr. and Mrs. Keith Doyle and family. Sunday afternoon callers of L. C. Thiedeman and Lydia were Mr. and Mrs. Dean Bornhoft and Nancy and Mrs. Marie Stoelk of Sioux City. Youths Don't Like Ferns' Libbing Style Distributed by NEA Young women are less interested in being liberated than young men are in liberating them, according to the National Gilbert Youth Poll. The poll, a nationwide survey of 3,000 young people aged 14 to 25, showed young men more in agreement than young women with the women's liberation movement goal of equality and more in agreement with the m o v e m e n t's methods for achieving that goal. Overall, 51.9 per cent of those polled said they agreed with the goal of equality for women, but 56 per cent of tine males agreed, as opposed to 47.9 per cent of the females. "I like being treated as a woman, so I think this movement is ridiculous," said a Northwestern U. coed who was part of the 48.1 per cent opposed to the movement. "Look at the participants." Although only 31.5 per cent of the young people said they favored the methods the women's lib movemnet is using to try to achieve equality, 41.1 per cent of the young men supported the methods and only 22.4 per cent of the young ladies agreed with them. The young men were so much in favor of equality for women that 36.7 per cent of them said women should be drafted, even though only 14.6 per cent of the young ladies supported that proposal!. The over-all total in favor of inducting women into the armed forces was 25.4 per cent. "I'm in favor of women getting drafted but not for military fighting," a 21-year-old California State College (Los Angeles) man said. One of the few women who favored drafting females, a Roanoke, Va., 23-year -K >ld, commented that she was "in favor of women getting drafted, but only single women." Young people in the 19-21 age group and those in school showed the greatest support for the women's liberation movement.
