ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, TUBS., FEB. 6, 1972 Page 8 Mull Sexy Ad Ban NEW ORLEANS CAP) Support is being lined up in the American Bar Association for legislation banning sexy advertising from the mails. The drive comes from the ABA's criminal law section and has the approval of the Justice Department. The next step is in the Senate by Sen. Roman L. Hruska, R-Neb., and. in the House by Rep. - William M. McCulloch, R-Ohio; Anyone who. mails or transports a ^sexually explicit ad would face prosecution and a $50,1)00 fine or five years in gripon. The ban would not cov- up to the ABA's policy-setting y^r'ads that are a small part of House of Delegates, which con-, venes today. The proposed ban on salacious ads moving across state lines was introduced, last month Holiday Mountain: Festival Ski Site Features St. Bernard Ice Sculpture Exemption (Continued Froiii Page 1) ing tax revenue is not a legitimate reason. He was supported in his argument by the Rev. Frederick Strickland of Corinthian Baptist Church, Des Moines, and Father George Pallis of Des Moines, representing the Greek Orthodox churches of Iowa. Mayor Ernest Brody of Ottumwa said his city received its Industrial Airport from the federal government about 15 years ago and it was "a big white elephant" at first, but after an uphill struggle "we now have it even with the board." If the city has to pay property taxes on portions of the airport leased to private operators, Brody said, it would upset the city's industrial development program and "we might have to give it (the airport) back to the government." Fred Davenport, manager of the Sioux City airport, said it lies in the Sergeant Bluff-Luton Community School District, along with a portion of Sioux City. lie said the Sioux City Independent School District is willing to take in the part of Sioux City it doesn't now contain but Sergeant Bluff-Luton opposes this. "The Sergeant Bluff-Luton district receives approximately $100,000 in taxes from that part of their district within the city limits of Sioux City and it is estimated (hat less than 100 children attend Sergeant Bluff- TV Tonight Luton school from the areas," Davenport said. He said that if the Sergeant Bluff-Luton district receives taxes on Sioux City Municipal Airport property, "it will truly be the poor supporting the rich." Ray Jamesen, Cedar Rapids airport manager, said the bill as it stands would bring into taxation some 90 per cent of the airport which is now self sustaining through revenue produced by users and this would be no boon to city taxpayers. It would strike at the keystone of the city's industrial development program, he said. Representatives of retirement homes contended it wouldn't take much taxation to put some of the present nonprofit homes out of business. Eugene Hackler of Olathe, Kan., president of the American Association of Homes for the Aging, said nonprofit homes run by religious and charitable organizations are providing custodial care for elderly persons at about $10 a day and for old age assistance recipients at about $5 a day. "There are no homes for the aging providing multi levels of care, such as Wesley Acres of Des Moines, run commercially because there is no profit for investors," Hackler declared. He added that most nonprofit custodial homes provide services for those least able to pay. Francis Johnson, representing Friendship Haven, a retirement home in Fort Dodge, said the home would have to pay $24,000 a year in property taxes if the bill becomes law, and that coupled with an anticipated boost in the federal minimum wage would create severe financial pressure for Friendship Haven. B. L. Donaldson, executive director of the Methodist Manor home at Storm Lake, said the only two logical reasons for ending its tax exemption is that the best interest of the public is no longer being served by it, or that violations are so flagrant that legislative action must be taken to protect the public. He said the first argument would imply that government "is providing adequate, higher quality service at less cost — which we all know is not the case." As for violations, he said they are not so frequent they can't be stopped except by drastic legislative action. Dale Renaud, Iowa American Legion commander, and Warren Albaugh, state adjutant of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, both pleaded for changes in the bill to allow exemptions to continue on their "post home" buildings. Both said few posts carry on commercial businesses in their quarters, but their post homes are used for fund raising dinners and the like, proceeds of which go into community service programs. They said-the programs would have to be curtailed if posts have to pay property taxes. Hope to H. E. W. KANSAS CITY (AP)-Dr. William B. Hope Jr. has been named deputy director for the Missouri, Kansas, Iowa ,and Nebraska region of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Anti-Townships DES MOINES, Iowa (AP>The House State Government Committee has approved a bill to allow abolition of townships as government subdivisions. Under the measure, county supervisors could choose between appointing clerks and trustees for townships or could assume township duties themselves.""' Iowa has about 1,600 townships, which were the basic units of government in pioneer days. Today the subdivisions primarily administer ceme- taries and levy fire protection assessents. ni • ENDS WED.

The Management Candidates (Continued-From Page 1) likely topinean a reduction by about brie^third in the price of political television time, the ^96$':; Republican performance could be matched within the new. spending ceiling. The over-all advertising limit covers television, radio, newspaper, magazine, billboard and paid telephone campaigns. It does not cover direct-mail costs, and there are reports that will be a major facet of the Republican campaign to reelect Nixon. Nor does it limit a candidate's total campaign spending. Watch Interest DES MOINES — Taxpayers planning to claim an interest deduction on their 1971 Federal tax return should be sure to read the instructions carefully to avoid erros, R. C. Voskuil, acting district director of Internal Revenue for Iowa, advised. Interest deductions should be entered with other itemized deductions on Schedule A and attached to Form 1040. The form for itemized deductions gives taxpayers space to list interest, taxes, contributions and other deductible expenses. Interest paid on a home mortgage, a bank loan or other debt may be deducted if the taxpay- ""er"is legafay resportsfble'for the payment. Interest paid for another person is not deductible, Mr. Voskuil said. This could occur when a parent makes a mortgage payment for his children on a home that is not in his name. a catalog, book or magazine that is not devoted primarily to sex. Leaders of the criminal law section voted 12 to 4 to support Commission the legislation. The dissenters sumers. favored an amendment requiring the homeowner who does not want to receive such ads to first notify postal authorities. Justice William E. Erickson of Colorado, the section chairman, said the majority "felt there were no First Amendment or Constitutional problems." . Meanwhile, a second ABA group asked the House of Delegates to back bills in Congress to study the growing number of cases before federal appeals courts. In 10 years the number of ap­ peals has nearly tripled while the number of judges has increased by about one-third, said the report by lawyer C. Frank Reifsynder of Washington, D.C. The pending legislation would create a commission to revise the federal appeals court system. In a third report, the section of antitrust law asked support for legislation to enlarge the authority of the Federal Trade to protect con- In prepared remarks for the opening of the House of Delegates meeting, ABA President Leon Jaworski of Houston, Tex., said he backs a bill to put the government's legal aid program for the poor in a new, independent corporation to protect it from political interference. Last week, the director of the program, Fred Speaker, accused Vice President Spiro T. Agnew of such interference. Jaworski did not comment on the dispute in his prepared remarks. more "home" from your house.
