Pop Wine Sales in Iowa Down Bv Harrison Weber By Iowa Dally Press Association DES MOINES — Apparently the drinking habits of Iowa's young people are changing as pop wines sales in state liquor stores have fallen sharply. Sales are down one-third from a year ago, reports Holland Gallagher, Director of the Iowa Beer and Liquor Control Department. But, he added, when compared to other states, Iowa's sales are still good. Two of the three pop wines sold in Iowa are among the top six items sold by the state. Pop wines have been very popular with the college students. Gallagher noted. But instead of selling 12,000 to 15,000 cases a month of these three pop wines, Iowa is only selling around 8.000 cases. Reporters going through campaign contribution reports were taken aback by one contribution received by Citizens for Culver. It seems that Robert Cochran of New York contributed $100 to John Culver's campaign for the U.S; Senate. Cochran is the broadcast coordinator for the National Football League. But then again maybe the Times Herald, Carroll, la. ^ Thursday, May 30, 1974 / reporters shouldn't have been surprised; Culver was an outstanding fullback at Harvard. -0— If you're buying a house on contract, a law passed by the Iowa Legislature on homestead credit could save you up to $62.50. It makes a contract purchaser eligible for the credit as long as the purchaser lives in the house and has the contract recorded, no matter how little equity the individual • has in the property. Previously a contract purchaser was required to have an equity of ten percent before becoming eligible for the credit. Homestead credit is 25 mills on the first $2,500 assessed valuation, up to a maximum of $62.50. In order to get the credit a person must file a claim with his local assessor by July 1. Tito 9 s Last Battle; Long Retreat From Liberalism Paul Heitman. an official in the State Office of Planning and Programming, has probably done more research work on the bill to create a state department of transportation than any other public official in the state. Heitman has an interesting observation on the bill passed by the Legislature to establish a department of transportation. One of the most significant features of JO GARST Democrat For STATE REPRESENTATIVE 55th District A full time legislator with a concern for the issues affecting the lives of rural lowans. VOTE -- Primary Election - June 4 Paid For By Jo Garst By NBA-London Economist News Service Having for so many years marched his men up the hill under the banner of market socialism and political liberalization. President Tito suddenly changed his mind two- and-a-half years ago and has been marching them down again ever since. President Tito's justification for his retreat from his own brand of a more relaxed form of Communist rule has been the need to protect his country from the danger of disintegration and foreign intervention — which plainly meant intervention by Russia. Such a danger for the moment at any rate, seems to have been averted. Yugoslavia today has the look of a stable country firmly ruled from the center. But a stiff price has been paid for the bill, he relates, is that it includes regulation of transportation. New York state. Heitman reports, is the only other state having a department of transportation that is empowered to regulate transportation per se. The Iowa bill calls for consolidating various state agencies including the highway commission, aeronautics commission, reciprocity board and several divisions of the commerce commission and state department of public safety as well as creating a railroad division. For the first time in the history of the state bureau of criminal investigation one of the agents will have a law degree. He is James B. Walter of Iowa City who is scheduled to be sworn in on June 1. Walter is receiving his law degree from the University of Iowa. A Kansas family reports it had a "thrill of a lifetime" while traveling through Iowa and came across a billboard plugging the candidacy of Jim Schaben for the Democratic nomination for governor. The W.L. Shabens from Wa Kenney. Kan., have a son named Jim who was unable to make the trip with them. However, they stopped and took a picture of the billboard at Coralville. The Schabens from Kansas are not related to the candidate. that stability, especially in terms of far-reaching constitutional changes that are possibly more damaging for the future of Yugoslavia than even the curtailment of some cultural freedoms or the locking up of alleged counter-revolutionaries. One change has been the replacement of direct voting at elections by a system of indirect voting that strengthens the Communist party's control over the choice of candidates. The party itself has become tightly centralized again, and the individual member's right to disagree with the party has been severely curtailed in the name of ''democratic centralism." But this pretty drastic tightening up has so far failed to produce a return to the full Leninist unity and discipline that Tito has been working for.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer Two months ago, the new leaders whom he had put into power in Croatia in 1971 startled the rest of Yugoslavia by announcing that there would have been a civil war this year if they had not acted to stop an attempted Stalinist coup. In Serbia, too, the party is tense, even after- the extensive purges that have taken place since 1972. In fact, these purges seem to have whetted the appetite of hardliners for the kind of full-blooded communism that Yugoslavia briefly practised immediately after 1945. The hardliners reckon that mounting discontent over high unemployment — estimated at 400.000 at the beginning of the year — and its 20-plus per cent inflation may bring them new supporters, especially among the younger people. These unresolved conflicts inevitably make Yugoslavia more vulnerable to pressure from the one power that could seriously threaten its independence, the Soviet Union. Of course, Yugoslavia has learned over the years to live in its great neighbor's shadow, and Leonid Brezhnev tries hard to look less frightening than Stalin. But when Stalin started his economic blockade in the late 1940s, and even looked as if he might invade^ there was a strong United States to turn to. Today the United States is no longer eager to acquire new clients who need to be protected from the Soviet Union. And relations with western Europe have been soured by President Tito's quarrels with Austria and, most dangerously at the moment, with Italy over Trieste. As an old Bolshevik, he of course sees the Soviet Union not only as a potential threat to Yugoslavia's independence but also, if the occasion demands, as a guarantor of its Communist system of government. He may calculate that by making Yugoslavia a bit more like Rumania — less free internally, although still independent — he is removing from Brezhnev the temptation to invade Yugoslavia after his departure under the pretext of defending its socialism. How correct is the calculation? The possibility of a Soviet invasion certainly cannot be ruled out. Indeed, in the present state of disarray in the West, the chances that such an invasion might conceivably take place without a serious western response must be tempting some people in Moscow. But even in a politically divided Yugoslavia there is a good chance that the army would fight the invaders, and that the fighting could last long enough to produce an international crisis Russia could not control. That may go on deterring the Soviet army. But there is no real need for Brezhnev to order an invasion of Yugoslavia so long as the old hotbed of revisionist heresy is being extinguished bit by bit by Yugoslavia's own president. That is what is happening, with the result that every day Yugoslavia looks that little bit more like the other countries of the Soviet world, despite the differences that remain. All the Soviet leaders have to do is to go on cultivating President Tito's goodwill and quietly picking out among his colleagues men to negotiate with after his departure.
