A primary election with few local contests drew a small voter turnout in the early hours of balloting in the Carroll, area Tuesday, a spot survey of polling centers in Carroll County showed Tuesday morning. , \\By 11 a.m. 262 persons Had voted in the four wards in Carroll, which poll officials labeled a light turnout. Two of the smallest voter turnouts in the Carroll area were in the Ewoldt and Grant precincts. At 10:45 a.m. poll officials at the Ewoldt center reported just three voters, while only four persons had cast ballots in Grant precinct. After three hours of voting, the vote total for the Carroll wards was just 203, 13 more than after the same amount of time in the 1972 primary. Although the 1972 primary election was highlighted by several local contests, voting was extremely light in the morning because of a steady drizzle. One poll official in Grant precinct attributed the disappointing turnout to two factors. The lack of contests and farmers working in their fields who probably would not vote until later in the day. County Commissioner of Elections William C. Arts Jr. Tuesday predicted about 4,500 persons would vote in the primary election in Carroll County. Arts had predicted the same number Monday. "I thought 4,500 might be pretty heavy yesterday, but now I feel it may be accurate," he said Tuesday morning. Arts added, "last day enthusiasm" stemming from the contests for governor Cattle| Stricken, Vets Seek Cause An undetermined number of cattle on the J.J. Feldmann farm, about one and a half miles southeast of Breda, died Peniiy Candy on Way Out CHICAGO (AP) - Penny candy apparently is going the way of copper pennies. Out. Higher prices are the reason. Peter F. Norton, a member of board of the National Confectioners Association, predicted in an interview Monday that penny candies will soon be a thing of the past. And Norton also said the 15- cent candy bar is fast becoming the 20-cent candy bar or a smaller 15-centbar. Norton, executive vice president of Ludens Inc., Reading, Pa., manufacturer of candy as well as cough drops, is in Chicago for the association's annual convention and exposition. He said the price of candy has been slow to rise in relation to the price of a cup of coffee or a soft drink but that lately the cost of candy ingredients has increased sharply, forcing the price of candy up. He said sugar, for example, has gone up 250 per cent since January and that in two years the price of cocoa beans has increased from 21 cents to $1.10 a pound. Production costs- electricity, transportation, labor and the like—also have risen sharply, Norton said. Norton said that if penny candy were made smaller it would be too small to sell, so the price will probably be 2 cents a candy kiss.

Tells Bribes From IBP NEW YORK (AP) - A supermarket executive has admitted he took $1 million in bribes from a meat processor, and paid out $2,000 a month to union officials to buy labor peace. The defendant, Moe Steinman, 56, director of labor relations for the Daitch-Shopwell chain, said he asked a penny a pound from Iowa Beef Processors Inc.. but settled for a half-cent. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Burton Roberts accepted Steinman's guilty plea Monday to a misdemeanor charge of conspiring to bribe a union official. But the judge said he was not completely satisfied with the deal Steinman had made with a federal and local officials investigating the meat bribe scandal. Roberts said he was reserving the right to set aside the guilty plea after the trial of Meat, See Page 2 The new structure is located directly west of the present Carpet World Store for Homes and the two buildings will be connected by a sidewalk patio.

New Twin Theater to Open on June 7 After a year without a theater, Carroll's new twin theater, at the corner of Fifth and Main Streets, will open Friday, June 7, according to theater owner Robert Fridley, of Des Moines. The new theater represents an investment of over $300,000 and makes Carroll the first city of its size in Iowa to have a theater designed anf built as a twin theater, said Fridley. The old Carroll Theater, which showed its last picture on May 28, 1973, was razed to make way for the new municipal complex under the central business district urban renewal program. "Because Carroll has been without a theater for the past year, we will show a variety of the newest releases," Fridley said. "But we will bring in the choicest of pictures released during the last year so people will have an opportunity to see the outstanding pictures of 1973." Opening in the larger of the two auditoriums, which seats about 360 persons, will be "Where the Lilies Bloom," a picture "which has received excellent praise," Fridley stated. The Woody Allen comedy "Sleeper" will open in the smaller auditorium, which has a seating capacity of slightly fewer than 300. The twin theater will give the Carroll area a wider choice of entertainment since there are two theaters under one roof, according to Fridley. "The twin theater will allow us to vary entertainment so whenever possible there will be a picture for the whole family." The lobby in the new theater is decorated in red and pale gold and Fridley calls it "rather spectacular." Equipped for showing cinerama and 70 mm productions, the larger auditorium in the new twin complex will make Carroll the first city of its size in the Midwest to offer cinerama. When the "super attractions" are shown, they will be accompanied with six-track stereophonic sound. The manager for the new Carroll Theater is Ray Dial. Dial worked at the Capri Theater in Lake City while in high school and has had posts in Ida Grove and Storm Lake since joining the Fridley Theater Corp. The new Carroll theater will be fully automated, Fridley said, and the projection equipment will be started from the main floor and will change film automatically. Other features scheduled for the new theater include: "Executive Action," "Touch of Class," "Conrack," "The Way We Were," "Papillion," "Serpico" and the "Great Gatsby." Struck Tire Firm to Move to Iowa GALESBURG, 111. (AP) Struck for 11 weeks, Gates Rubber Co., has begun crating its multimillion-dollar industrial hose plant to move it from this western Illinois town. "We'd like to see this thing settled . . . but we've been completely shut down, and without merchandise, and there aren't any customers," said Jack McCandless, Gates vice president, Monday in a telephone interview from the firm's Denver headquarters. "We've sort of reached an impasse. We're moving some of the operation today," McCandless said. Wednesday, Gates told its 700 Galesburg employes that its final offer had been made. In thunderous response Saturday, members of United Rubber Workers local 685 refused to reconsider the already rejected offer. Neither side would detail the contested issues. The firm threatened to move the entire facility to Clinton, Iowa, but union members remained steadfast. "They told us 'you do it or else,' " said local President Leonard Spicher. "The company has certain obligations to us. The issues are minor . . . we'd like to get back to negotiations." McCandless echoed Spicher's call for more talks, but added, "We presented the same offer on Saturday and they didn't even vote on it." No meetings are scheduled, and McCandless said Gates had decided to begin the move. The firm has no plant in Iowa, and a strike of truck drivers thwarted any actually moving Monday. Employes walked out when their contract expired March 17. Federal mediators have been involved in strike negotiations. McCandless said wages and fringe benefits were the major unsolved issues. Spicher would not elaborate, saying only "... the union's not hung up on those things." Ray Signs Industry Pollution Bill With Reservations DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— Gov. Robert Ray worked into the night Monday before signing into law the last bill given to him by the 1974 Iowa Legislature. It was also one the governor seriously considered vetoing. Ray signed 18 bills into law during the long day, and used his item veto power on specific provisions in three of them. The final measure was one granting 10-year-property tax exemptions to industries for installation of federally-ordered pollution control devices by a May 31, 1975 deadline. Devices installed since Sept. 23, 1970, when the state's water and air pollution rules went into effect, also would qualify for the exemption. After he signed the bill, Ray said he had seriously questioned the measure because "certain elements of society might be given an undue advantage in preventing pollution which they are required to do regardless of any tax benefit." "I am also aware of the practical and economic implications of this legislation and recognize the particular bind that some Iowa industries face through no particular fault of their own." He also noted that "Iowa industry must meet its environ- mental obligations. Iowa industry is required to comply with the federally established health-related air quality standards set forth in the Clean Air Act." Ray said most large companies can absorb the cost of installing pollution control equipment "and pass the cost on to their consumers." But he said smaller firms often find the cos't of pollution control devices nearly as expensive as the big companies' and far more costly in relation to their output. "I have also considered the facts," Ray continued, "that government forces industry to install pollution control devices at their own expense; industry must pay sales tax on the cost of the equipment even though it is 'non-productive;' and that property taxes would be levied every year on top of the original cost and sales tax if this bill allowing a moratorium did not become law." "There are questions about this bill that have not been adequately...answered about such things as where the exemptions will be granted, to what extent they will be granted, and the effect on others." "As a result, I seriously considered vetoing this bill with the thought in mind that I would charge a research group to seek out additional information." But he concluded that to take such action would not leave sufficient time before the May 31, 1975 deadline "for companies to learn if, or if not, the state of Iowa would grant a moratorium to them. If such exemption is to have any effect in retaining industry in Iowa, it must be granted now." Under the bill, Ray said, the Departments of Environmental Quality and Revenue "have broad regulatory and rule-making authority. By exercising this authority judiciously, the departments can interpret the law to a void abuse." "A research group can still be formed to determine what changes or modifications in this law, if any, should be made. I intend to follow through on this idea." Legislative opponents argued that the measure amounted to a bribe to polluting industries to take anti-pollution steps which they said the public shouldn't have to pay for. Rep. Floyd Millen, R-Farmington, a supporter, said many industries were being forced by government order to put in the control devices at a cos
