Money for Lakes to Pay Off By William P. Winkelman Representative Hap Miller will certainly be missed by his many friends. We are shocked and saddened by his death Tuesday evening. Hap was conscientious and hardworking in representing the district, and it was a pleasure to have worked with him. The conservation capital improvements appropriation is $7,900,000, with the biggest share going for land acquisition. The bill states "not less than five hundred thousand ($500,000) dollars shall be set aside for use for dredging and an additional one hundred thousand ($100,000) dollars shall be used to contract for an independent study of the feasibility and economics of dredging all lakes especially including Black Hawk Lake, Blue Lake, Silver Lake, and Five Island Lake". Our work on conservation appropriations is always time consuming and often frustrating, but it is satisfying to work for naturally unique lakes as Black Hawk, the southern-most blue water glacial lake in the U.S. Appropriating to preserve our natural lakes is a good investment. Hap was extra helpful and personally pleased with this program. Also, special thanks to Bob Deur. Black Hawk Lake consultant from Lake View for his helpful technical advice. We tried hard to get more for dredging but we are better off than at the beginning of the session. The final bill was a Times Herald, Carroll, la. > ^ Tuesday, May 7, 1974 I U conference report that couldn't be amended. By the way. North Twin is the only lake in Iowa to ever have its dredging completed. My experience with that satisfying project helps motivate me. The General Assembly passed a new tax relief package in the form of an exemption of food and drugs from the 3 per cent sales tax, an increase of the state income tax deduction from $250 to $500 and increasing the state inheritance tax exemption for a spouse from $40,000 to $80,000. Tax relief is very welcome, but I am opposed to the deficit general fund balance that this package projects for three years from now, and a probable tax increase of a greater amount. It is fiscally irresponsible. Each part of the package should have been handled individually, especially this late in the session. I think it is bad policy to put ourselves in a position whereby we are risking the raising of taxes at a time when the people and the state are having a rough time economically. Among bills receiving final legislative approval this week was the obscenity bill, an act to make it unlawful to exhibit obscenity to minors or to admit minors to premises where obscenity is exhibited; and the witness immunity bill, an act permitting prosecutors to give witnesses immunity for testifying in criminal cases. I tried hard to get our land use policy bill passed, but it was sent back to committee, thereby delaying it at least another year. It was considered too complex and too hot to handle.

There is a tendency in this country to put off doing something until we have a crisis, and then it's too late. For our sake, let's save the land. We are in the closing hours of the session, but slowed up by the complexity of the Uniform Consumer Credit Code bill. Since we'll be adjourned by the time you receive this weekly report, it will be my last until next session. I have enjoyed reporting to you this way. I will be happy to report on the actions of the General Assembly at any meeting or class you would like to have me attend during the interim. Please feel free to write, call, or visit me anytime I may be of help or you have some advice for me. I will be at my home on the west edge of Lohrville until the convening of the new General Assembly in January. By Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD (NEA)Hollywood is scared to death about the possibility of an actors' strike June 1. If it happens, it could ruin next fall's TV schedule and put an end to feature film production fora while. To guard against that second possibility, the studios have decided not to start any new movie any more unless the union (Screen Actors Guild) gives them a written guarantee that they'll let the actors finish what they've started, even if the strikeis called. Four pictures, scheduled to begin production, have been delayed because SAG would not give such assurance. At a party publicist Dale Olson hosted, to honor Jean Stapleton for her appearance on stage here in "Time of the Cuckoo," I eavesdropped on a delightful conversation French Ready for Business Uy NKA-Umdnn Kiiinnmisl Newsservice PARIS - (LENS) -One outcome of the French presidential election could be the lifting of the embargo on sales of arms to the belligerent parts of the Middle East. Jacques Chaban-Delmas has already made noises to this effect and Francois Mitterrand is reputedly pro-Israel anyway. With America already supplying one side and apparently on the point of supplying the other, the French are beginning to wonder whether their embargo has any point. The Middle East is now full of money; Israel, Egypt and Syria are all anxious to make good the losses they suffered in October, and rich pickings are there to be had. It was only after the fighting last autumn that French arms salesmen really got the bit between their teeth, helped partly by France's neutral or between two Hollywood old-timers, silent star Carmel Myers and comic great Jack Oakie. They were talking about parties in the old days of Hollywood. They laughed about one given by Vilma Banky and Rod LaRocque. There was a lavish looking buffet — turkeys, hams, roast beefs — but when people began to dig in they found that all the food was papier mache. Vincent Gardenia, an Oscar nominee for "Bang the Drum Slowly," was at the party, too, and said how all it takes is one good part to turn an actor's career around. He says he's the same actor he's always been, no better, no worse, but since that part and that nomination he's flooded with offers. He's going into the big movie, "The Front Page," starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Another guest was Phyllis Kirk — remember her as Peter Lawford's leading lady in the TV series, The Thin Man? — who hobbled in with a cane. She's been having chronic back problems and says she's been helped a great deal lately by acupuncture. I saw a reel of footage from "Doc Savage," which will probably be released in August. It stars Ron Ely and it is played in campy, Batman style. It remains to be seen whether this kind of thing will go with today's movie audiences. Producer George Pal says that a second "Doc Savage" script has been written but filming will wait on whether or not the first one is a hit. Everybody was shocked by the appearance of a streaker at the Oscars, But, when you think about it, he wasn't the first — Oscar, himself, isn't exactly overdressed. pro- Arab position and the desire of many governments to reduce their dependence on British and American arms. The Arabs are now buying weaponry that is very advanced stuff. Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and Iraq are after 8,000 ground-to- ground missiles. Iraq and Libya will be buying mortars. Iraq will be equipping French helicopters with French 20mm guns and now wants laser equipment to be used with light Panhard machine guns. Lebanon will be buying antitank equipment, and even Qatar wants Brazilian Cascavel tanks equipped with French gun turrets. The French are offering several Arab states infra-red equipment for use by tanks in night operations. Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have both placed new orders for Mirages, Abu Dhabi has firmed up an order made tentatively before the fighting, and Libya is after French patrol boats. This will mean France will be selling $175 million worth of armaments to the Middle East this year, probably a more important outlet than all those industrial projects the Arabs talk about but do not. on the whole, order from France. ic i The Kconomisi of London MAKE MOTHER'S DAY 1974 THE BEST EVER! ^^••^^ * 503 N 523 N.
