On May 25. 1952. the telephone company moved to its present location on 617 North Adams. With the move came many changes. Eventually, in 1970. the local office switched to direct dialing. The peak of 68 operators before the change dropped to the present number of 29. Previously, the operators handled all calls. With subscribers dialing their own numbers and with the resultant computerization, some of the close ties between the operators and subscribers was lost. "Years ago, you had more of that personal touch." Miss Dinges said. Once, a woman called from Winterset asking that the operator. Miss Dinges. help her locate her purse lost in a cafe in this area. All the woman could remember about the restaurant was her order and that the restaurant had a large tree in front of it. After numberous calls. Miss Dinges tracked down the purse. Increased computerization and the speed of transferring calls mechanically tended to reduce conversation between operators and subscribers, the former operator said. Besides locating misplaced items and performing other services, Miss Dinges handled some emergency calls. When a woman having difficulty breathing requested help, the operator had her stay on the line 1 w'hile'th'e calls 1 were' made, saving time that the w o nrshh-'-w p irt d' '-h-a ve-u s e d -• dialing a doctor, ambulance and a friend herself. Years ago. when someone called for the police, an operator would throw an emergency switch under the panel, which would turn on a red light in three prominent positions around town.-The police would watch for the light on their patrols, and call the operator to find out who needed assistance. Direct dialing also eliminated this process. The central office in Carroll now handles calls in 28 outlying towns in all directions. "I guess my interests will always stay with the business. It was a very wonderful company to work for," Miss Dinges said. She has no definite plans for her retirement. Miss Dinges said that she now hopes to have time to attend Catholic . Daughters of America meetings and perhaps change ; her status in the hospital auxiliary from an inactive to active member. Miss Dinges has also been in the Telephone Pioneers of America, 71 Club, and served as publicity chairman. Since Miss Dinges comes from a large family, there are always family activities going on, she said. She hopes to visit her three brothers in Colorado and one in California,On .January 21 of this year, Miss Dinges was honored at a coffee on her 40th anniversary with the company. Then she was presented with a wrist watch and a necklace with eight diamonds, each representing five years of service. Mrs. Gwendolyn Cleveland, opferatd'r' service supervisor, worked with Miss Dinges most 2 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, April 3 Iowa Hit by Spring Storm Snow is Forecast By The Associated Press An early spring storm is dumping precipitation on Iowa. The National Weather Service warns that northerly winds of 25 to 35 miles an hour will cause danger to livestock in unprotected areas Wednesday night in northwest Iowa.

Overnight lows were from 33 at Spencer to 55 at Burlington. -Hot off the wire- Gradual Rise in Prices Seen as Controls End By The Associated Press The end of wage and price controls on 165 industries will mean a gradual rise in prices to consumers but no immediate major increases, according to spokesmen for the companies involved. An Associated Press survey showed that most businessmen said prices have already been set for current product lines or they were more concerned about competition than the lifting of controls. Frank Mize of the legal department of Jantzen, an apparel manufacturer, said the industry sets prices well ahead of time and "the custom is to maintain those prices throughout the season." On Monday the Cost of Living Council lifted controls on the 165 industries, 29 days before the scheduled expiration of the Economic Stabilization Act. The affected industries included banks and financial institutions, the apparel industry, hotels, motion pictures and other amusements and furniture. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— County auditors would have to break down by dollars and cents the tax going to each political subdivision under a bill sent to the Senate for debate Wednesday. The Senate Ways and Means Committee voted 9-1 to recommend the measure for passage. The bill was sent to the Senate calendar after the committee rejected an amendment which would have limited the requirement to counties that use a computer to send out tax notices. Sen . Ralph Potter, R-Marion, sponsor of the bill, said it was designed so taxpayers can see just how much of their taxes are going to schools, county and city. WILCOX, Ariz. (AP)_A northwest Iowa man was killed Tuesday in a one car accident in southeastern Arizona. Authorities said Ben Veen, 73, Sioux Center, was killed when the car he was driving went out of control in high winds and ran off the road near Wilcox, Ariz. Veen's wife was also injured in the mishap, which occurred while the couple was vacationing. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Cost of Living Council has lifted wage controls for workers in the newspaper industry. "We have now determined that conditions are such that wages and salaries paid in the newspaper industry should be exempted," Director John T. Dunlop said Tuesday. He added: "This action is in accordance with our objective to remove controls selectively where conditions permit.'' Prices in the newspaper industry were decontroled March 15 but the council at that time said it was delaying action on wages because important labor negotiations were under way in some cities. Tuesday's action does not affect executive and variable compensation, which remain subject to Phase 4 controls. Daily Record "She was a very good operator," Mrs. Cleveland said. On May 4. Miss Dinges will be honored at a retirement party at the Elks building. The parties are traditional at the telephone company. Miss Dinges is busy preparing for it now.

Nearby wheat futures were up 12 cents a bushel, corn and oats about 3 cents and soybean meal $1 a ton. Soybean oil was down about 40 points and soybean prices were uneven. Buying in the wheat and corn pits on the opening was mostly of a commercial nature and as prices moved UD sharply the professional shorts of recent days flocked to cover positions, adding to the advance. There was a brief top and then prices eased a few pennies in the wheat pit and less in corn. ST. ANTHONY REGIONAL HOSPITAL Admissions April 1— Merle C. Duncan, Carroll Kristina M.

Beisch, Carroll TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Israel's chief of staff, Lt. Gen. David Elazar, resigned after an investigating commission blamed him and his chief intelligence officers for Israel's lack of preparedness for the Arab attack last October. "I have been done an injustice,' ' said Elazar, a hero of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, after the commission issued an interim report Tuesday. He named his chief of operations, Maj. Gen. Itzhak Hofi, as his temporary replacement. — The prosecution rested today after calling only four witnesses in the perjury trial of Dwight L. Chapin, President Nixon's former appointments secretary. Asst. special prosecutor Richard J. Davis rested his case after introducing a lengthy memorandum from Chapin that detailed his relationship with political saboteur Donald H. Segretti. Chapin is charged with four counts of lying under oath to a Watergate grand jury last year about Segretti, whom he recruited for political dirty tricks. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The parents of kidnaped Patricia Hearst say they bqlieve the Symbionese Liberation Army will keep its promise to reveal by Friday where and when it will free her. In a typed letter delivered Tuesday to the editor of an underground newspaper, ^ilong with a dozen long-stemmed roses and a comic greeting card, the SLA said "further communication will follow in the following 72 hours" giving "the state, city and time of release of the prisoner." NEW YORK (AP) -One month after it called its first witness, the federal government was scheduled to rest its criminal conspiracy case today against former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and one-time Commerce Secretary Maurice H. Stans. Seven or eight minor witnesses were on call for brief testimony, according to the prosecution. But the defense indicated a willingness to stipulate as to the testimony of at least five, making it unnecessary for them to take the witness stand. OMAHA, Neb.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) — A modest technical rally nudged stock market prices higher today in light trading. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was up 3.05 at 849.66, while gainers clung to a very slight lead over losers on the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts said the advance seemed to be based in large part on buying by traders attracted by the depressed prices of many issues. The slow pace of trading showed that many investors were still cautious because of high interest rates, inflation, and other worries, brokers said. Uniroyal, unchanged at 9'/4, was the Big Board's most-active stock. An 87,800-share block traded at that price. On the American Stock Exchange, the market-value index was up. 16 at 96.48. .
