Times Herald, Carroll, la. f* Wednesday, May 15, 1974 2 Parochial Schools in a Decline DES MOINES. Iowa (AP)— The number of Catholic schools in Iowa decreased and enrollment dropped again this school year, according to a report from the National Catholic Education Association. The decline in schools and enrollment continues a trend that began about 10 years ago. The Washington-based association said in the report Tuesday that Iowa has 189 Catholic schools with 54,099 students, compared to 211 schools and 63,640 students in the 1970-71 school year. Nationally, the association said, the number and enrollment dropped again for Catholic schools, but the rate of decline was the slowest in five years. Finances have been the major factor in the closing and consolidation of Catholic schools, which make up about 80 per cent of all non public elementar y-secondary institutions in the United States. City Eligible for Transport Fund, $131,353 AMES. Iowa (AP)—These Iowa cities will be able to apply for $21.9 million in federal aid for transportation systems. They would have to match the federal money listed with matching funds, according to the Iowa Highway Commission. The arrangement involves communities paying 30 per cent of project costs, with federal funds covering the other 70 per cent, officials said Tuesday. The Des Moines urban area would get $3.8 million in federal funds: Cedar Rapids urban area 1.9 million: Davenport urban area 1.9 million; Waterloo urban area 1.7 million: Sioux City urban area 1.3 million: Council Bluffs urban area 977.262: Dubuque urban area 951.567: Iowa City 706.042: Ames 595.351: "Clinton 523.225: Burlington 487.764 and Mason City 481.510, . • Also Fort Dodge 471.142 Ottumwa 464.231 Marshalltown 395.128 Muscatine 337.650: Newton 235.383: Keokuk 220.493: Fort Madison 210.924: Boone 187.896: Oskaloosa 169.149: Spencer 154.892: Charles City 139,671; Ankeny 137.908'; Indianola 133,401: Carroll 131,353; Fairfield 131.337; Storm Lake 129.469: Webster City 127.917; Grinnell 126.620: Creston 124.089; Le Mars 122.958 and Estherville 122.190.

Chairman Sam J. Ervin Jr.. D-N.C., said staff members would be requested to eliminate any findings of individual guilt or innocence and to base the report solely on Watergate events and legislative recommendations stemming from them. Ervin said the committee did not discuss any steps it might take to compel C. G. "Bebe" Rebozo. President Nixon's close personal friend, to comply with a wide-ranging subpoena demanding he produce his personal and business financial records for the last five years. Ervin said the committee also will ask the Senate to ex- tend its full subpoena powers until June 30 and give it authority to filea supplemental report at any time if it wins its court battle for access to five key recordings of presidential conversations.

Before he left on a trip to China last weekend, Ray talked with General Services Director Stanley McCausland and the two agreed that state employes should work in 80 Daily Record Volunteers Recognized — Eleven of the 18 groups who entertain at the Carroll Health Center were represented at the recognition tea for volunteers Tuesday afternoon.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) —Prices sank slowly today in a stock market still stagnated by high interest rates. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was down 2.82 at 845.04, and declining issues outpaced those advancing by about a 5 to 3 on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading remained light. Analysts said it appeared a new terrorist incident in Israel touched off a bit of selling. But they said lethargy, rather than any strong impulses to buy or to sell, continued to dominate the market atmosphere. Virginia Electric & Power, down 4 to 11V was the NYSE's most-active issue. A 50.000-share block of the issue traded at 12. On the American Stock Exchange, the market-value index was off 1.15 at 84.50. The NYSE's noon composite index of more than 1,500 common stocks was down .18 at 47.68. Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) — Prices in the soybean complex were weak on the Chicago Board of Trade today, while wheat, corn and oats futures were irregular. Soybeans, in new crop months, were down 74 cents a bushel. Soy oil eased about 50 points, or 4 cents a pound and soybean meal was down $1 a ton. The selling of commodities in the complex was, to a degree, a carryover from Tuesday when some rather wide price swings in the closing hour produced sharply lower prices. A report from Iowa that farm field work was moving at a rate better than last year tended to bring out more sellers of corn futures. Wheat appeared to reflect this bearish influence. degree temperature to set an example. But McCausland said Wednesday he discussed the plan with Iowa Power and Light Co. officials who informed him that the principle of using less air conditioning to use less energy works only on small buildings such as homes. WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats are ready for a showdown on proposals that would swiftly boost oil industry taxes by several billion dollars. The Democrats were called today to a special caucus to act on resolutions urging the House Rules Committee to let the House vote on the amendments advocated by Reps. William J. Green. D-Pa., and Charles A. Vanik, D-Ohio. Green and /Vanik, members of the Ways and Means Com• Disaster • (Continued From Page 1) packets are retained at the fire station. The 18 rescue personnel of the fire department would divide into groups of two or three to check homes for injured persons and gas and electrical hazards resulting from a severe storm. St. Anthony Hospital has a separate disaster program. Basically, personnel at the hospital would become involved first, then others would be called in. Emergency supplies are retained at the hospital. A Red Cross trained team of about 10 persons is organized in the area to help during a disaster. The team includes four nurses. All have identifying hard hats and jackets to wear while on disaster work. Other sources of assistance during a tornado or other emergency were pointed out. With state approval in advance, a disaster team can use equipment borrowed from a school board. The sheriff determines the scope of a disaster and can then call the governor to dispatch the national guard. In addition. 40 state policemen could be sent to help in a disaster situation. The sheriff's department also come.s into pl.ay in distributing warnings to outlying towns. A full set of radios are kept in the court house basement, and another set in the sheriff's home. With these, deputies in each town are contacted to relay a warning to residents. If a disaster should occur, road blocks would be set up around a stricken town, and only persons with passes would be allowed to enter. Purpose of the passes is to reduce the possibility of looting. Ferman Stout, deputy sheriff, said. Buildings would then be inspected and signs posted on each to mark them as safe or unsafe. • Brinkman (Continued From Page 1) service by Carroll Elk's Lodge No. 1637 at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
