Hileman. executive secretary of Hie Iowa Motor Ti uck Association in Des Monies, said Iowa trucks number 20.7 per cent ol all motor vehicles iegislt-u:t! and their owners-opcraim•. pay 40.G per cent of all highway-user taxes collected by the state. This truck tax bill was more than ifRO million in 1973, according to the Federal Hi g li w a y Administration, the low;State Highway Commission and the ATA. During 1973, Iowa truck owners and operators spun more than $135.7 million in Iowa to purchase motor tucl An additional $110.7 million. was spent by Iowa tru<•!;!!».', to purchase mote than :!l'.iH),'i new vehicles during thai \. , according to Hileman i'resti ('oloi s and I-'inish FOR \\'\US, CMUHGS & TRIM MOORE'S Aquavelvet LATEX EGGSHELi FLAT ENAMEL comhinr\ ihc In aul\ of a (leianiliiiKJltii with the seniii'df'ili!\ o/ an enamel DECORATIVE Soft, low sheen finish PRACTICAL Highly washable, veiy dura We finish resists abras-c. i •< EASY-TO-USE With biush or (Oiler Soap and water clean i.v SAVE $1.00 Reg. $10.65 9 GAL I JOE'S PAINT CEN1CR CARROLL Moo're'f The U.S. Department of Agriculture said that Iowa faim operators receiver over $4 billion in cash receipts durinp, 1973 from the sale of farm crops, livestock and livestock products. More than 90 per cent, of these products were moved by truck to m a r k e t s in I o wa a n d surrounding states. Uileman said that 70 per cent of all mail in Iowa is transported by trucks and over 65 per cent of the rural highways in Iowa are covered by rural hee delivery mail louU.; Though 20 7 per cent of all Iowa registered motor vehicles are trucks, they pay 45.H per cent of all registration fees and 40 G per cent of all Iowa highway-user taxes, according to Ililernan. In addition to over $80 million paid in state user taxes, another $-11 million was paid in fedeial taxes, bringing the combined total toover$120 ini 11 ion by Iowa truck owners-operators in 1973, according to the Federal Highway Administration, the Iowa State Highway Commission and ATA. Hileman estimated that, "in Iowa each year, one five-axle over-the-road combination vehicle (truck) pays as much state and federal highway-user taxes as do 32 automobiles." In citing the importance of Iowa's trucking industry, which employs 164,000 persons who are paid nearly $1.2 billion annually, Hileman Times Herald, Carroll, la. j- Thursday, April 1 1 ' ° 7 " g^ said, "practically all periodicals, daily and weekly newspapers, and a great mass of printed material produced by the Iowa printing industry are distributed by trucks." Iowa ranks first in the nation for livestock marketings with sales of nearly $3 billion. This was over $600 million more than the next highest state. During 1973, over 99 per cent of all livestock received at Sioux City was hauled in by truck, according to Hileman. Agriculture is Iowa's leading industry with 80 per cent of all new or expanding, industry related to agriculture. There are approximately 179,500 trucks in agricultural use in Iowa, or 41.7 per cent of all registered trucks in the state, (distributed by Iowa Daily Press Association) ^ The Iowa Book Shelf Consumer Guide is Meat Money-saver KDITEDBYMAHYANN III LEY "SEXIST JUSTICE" By Karen DeCrow. (Random I louse, $7. % "Sexist" is not just a word you'll find in anything but perhaps the most current dictionaries if you aren't sure exactly what it means, look up the word "racist" and substitute sex for race in each of the Thai's what this book is all about — "a belief that human sexes have distinct characteiistics that, determine their respective cultures, usually involving (he idea that one's own sex is superior and has the light to rule others." Ms De( 'i ow lias done a very scholarly and thorough job of documenting how legal sexism affects women. More often than not, it involves money. She says at the outset, in a chapter entitled "Women and the Law: A study in Misogyny", that ". . . . this book is not a summary or compendium of the laws on women. ... it is a feminist analysis of the laws, the legislators, the judges, the lawvers and the law professors who make up our legal system. . . . and the misogyny present in legal institutions and in the men who create and run them." She feels that the test way to change the system is for more women to go to law school, run lor office, and become actively involved in our legal institutions. — Norma Matthews THE KEEP ITSHORT AND SIMPLE PARTY MENU BOOK By Ruth Brent. (Holt. Hinehart.$7.95) He 10 is a cookbook with a different format: first, ideas for a party during every season of the year, next, invitations, then — in keeping with the title that has become the author's trademark, m o n u s w i t h simple components, most \\ith four ingredients, and last, games or activities. The introduction contains valuable tips for novice host or hostess as well as an old hand at the social game. The former will relish the ease which can mark one's hospitality and the latter will be reminded of the value of keeping a record . . .so you don't serve fish to the friend who hates it, a second time. Mrs. Brent is not afraid to suggest the brand of frozen fruit or vegetable she uses, or the .seasoned salt or cake mix. She is imaginative: three fresh daffodils crown the Angle cake (Duncan Hines.) of 'the Easter Lunch; Baby doll clothes on a clothes line are a centerpiece for a Baby Shower; an obstacle course for a. children's Safari parly includes a_ Tropical Rain Forest (waterfall is a over a fence). With the book, entertaining is a frolic. Mars 1 /\nii Kiiev Sl'O! LS OF WAR By Charles .1 Levy (HoughUm MifflinCu .$5.95) The ti uuble with vvar^ is those w ; » don't fight in it can forget it. Combat isn't easy to forget. Vietnam was too personally violent to forget, and rnanv veterans can't. The author has studied the psychological casualties of Vietnam, following them borne t» their readjustments. Many haven't made the adjustment with tragic consequences. The war in Vietnam was not t r- a d 11 i o n a 1 combative soldiering many. It was a lechnoloi'ical failure, and it desti o\ e«i the soul of men who couldn't understand nor accoinodate to senselessness. It's an ugly story — perhaps a valuable addition to the lesson we have yet to learn about modern war. — Harold A.

(Coward, M c C a n n & Geophegan. $15.00) Christopher Wren was one of the outstanding intellects in English history, and to read his biography is to reach into architecture, astronomy, mathematics, and anatomy. But the book is far more than a popular biography of Wren : it is a brilliantly executed imaginative picture ot Wren's epoch: Charles I's beheading, the.reign of Cromwell, the Restoration, and the disastrous plague and fire which swept London. Because 1 of Weiss' consumate skill, these events are memorably depicted, which also makes the book highly informative. Unfortunately, there are no photographs to exemplify Wren's theories of architecture. The only blemish in the work is the inclusion of the inane and suphomoric poems of Weiss' wile, Stymean Karl en, which preface each of the numerous chapters. But 'they are all mercifully bnet. T he y do not detract significantly from this fine book. — Maurice I.aBelle DON FERNANDO. By Fernand Fournier-Aubry, (Putnam's. S7.95) For i hose who prefer real-life adventure to fiction, this true story of an intrepid Frenchman's global wanderings will be an exciting armchair adventure. Thabook is already a bestseller in France; it is complete with photographs and maps. At eighteen, Fernand set out to follow a "wind of adventure" which he felt in his bones. First stop. Equatorial Africa where he smuggled gold; in Cameroun, turned lumberjack, he married his first black wife, one of many; he brought up gorillas, lived with cannibals, hunted sharks. Crossing to South America, he explored the Amazon, was arrested as a spy, commanded a flotilla of boats between Equador and the Galapagos Islands. In the fifties, he was in Asia, running gold and opium. Never modest or reticent, the author has written an informal, candid, sometimes bawdy, account of his fifty years of wanderings with but one purpose, to live life to the fullest. — Mary Ann Riley ENTERTAINING MENUS. By Anne Willan. (Coward, McCann, $8.95) A lively cookbook by a Cordon Bleu graduate and editor of the Grand Diplome Cooking course (20 volumes), is bound to be selling the idea that food is more than what you eat to stay alive. The meals suggested here for two to fifty dinners are not the can of soup, can of tuna variety but they're not the sort that only a cateress can dish up, either. Step by step instructions, some beginning the day before a festivity, make it easy to be a relaxed hostess when it counts — after the guests arrive. Lots of recipes are continental in origin but Ms. Willan suggests canned chicken broth instead of the French cook's ubiquitous "stock". Summer lunches., plan-ahead-picnics, elegant dinners for four and eight, fork lunches, a Kebab barbecue, a traditional buffet — all have menus described in complete detail; you provide the muscle. — Nancy Spring By GAYNOR MADDUX (NEA Writer) Meat is the big question mark in today's shopping. Most families spend 33 to 50 per cent of their food budget on meat products. But how much do they actually know about buying cuts of meat economically? "We don't believe there is really any such thing as an economy cut met. Yet it is possible, even today, to purchase meat economically. But you need to know how," a New York meat cutter says. This idea is part of the wisdom contained in a new, helpful volume entitled "The Meat Book." This is a lucid consumer guide to selecting, buying, storing, freezing and carving. It is the work of David Greene, a orominent meat cutter in New York and teacher of consumer seminars, and Travis Moncure Evans, writer and consumer advocate. The following ideas are also from "The Meat Book" ($8.95, Scribers): 1) Fully trimmed cuts are not necessarily more expensive because what you are paying for is practically 100 per cent meat. Purchasing meat untrimmed, bone-in cuts at the lowest end of the price spectrum can be false economy. The higher-priced, fully trimmed piece of meat will have far less waste and enough solid meat to justify the price differential. 2) How much meat will be enough for each person? If a cut contains no bone and very little fat, three ounces can suffice for each serving. If you are serving something like beef plate meat, breast of lamb or spareribs, however, you are getting very little meat and lots of bone. You may need upwards of a pound per serving. 3) Think hot dogs and luncheon meat are thifty? Most hot dogs are made up of 10 per cent water, 30 per cent fat and a small percentage of filler (unless the label reads "all meat") — more than 40 per cent non-nutritive foodstuffs. 4) Those innocuous processed "beef patties" or "mea patties" one often finds in th( supermarket freezer sectior contain but a percentage ol Little too Big- If the- shoe fits, wear it as the saying goes, but 11-year-old Luciano Fabiani of Bologna, Italy finds this 1.2 meter-long monstrosity somewhat ungainly to trot around in. The o v e r s i z e d shoe weighing 331 pounds, was part of a display at a shoemakers' exhibition in Bologna. beef. You also are paying for pork spleens, soya flour, salt. dextrose, vegetable protein, flavoring and water. Most processed patties are more expensive than those you can easily make yourself from pure beef. The book also contains excellent sections on primal cuts, pork, lamb and veal and soup stock and is a guide to buying meat at the supermarket. THE ROMANTIC REBELLION: Romantic Versus Classic Art, By KennethClark. (Harper & Row, $15.00) The second half of the 18th century to the middle of the 19th is marked by a rivalry between Classic and Romantic Art, the former characterized by the presence of a moral, by tranquillity, by a spirit of self-sacrifice and the latter by emotionalism, exhileration and violence. Clark, justly famed for his TV series called Civilization and the book of the same name, has again put his TV scripts into print and included both black and white and color illustrations. Through the lives of thirteen pre-eminent artists and their works, he successfully conveys the spirit of the age, beginning with David and Goya and concluding with Degas and Rodin. Clark's style might be called 'informal informative' and today's reader can be introduced to the formerly esoteric world of Art History through modern idiom by this internationally acknowledged 'born' teacher. — Mary Ann Riley ONE SUNNY DAY, By Joan Alexander.
