Non-business losses are limited to a $100 minimum. "A list of items lost or damaged, showing initial cost, value immediately before the loss, and value after the loss occurred, is recommended," Rideoutte said. Don Severin, Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service director for Carroll County, advised farmers whose program crops were destroyed or damaged in the storms to not destroy evidence of the crop losses. "Don't plow it under," Sey'erin said. Severin urged farmers who'believe they are entitled to disaster payments to contact the local ASCS office as soon as possible. "If a farmer believes that natural disaster has caused a substantial loss in the yield of his program crops, he should notify the county office as soon as he can. He should not destroy the crop residue. If his loss is partial and he harvests some or all of the crop, he should be ready to furnish evidence of the yield, such as warehouse receipts and similar documents," Severin said. Severin pointed out that disaster payments are intended only to provide relief to farmers whose cropland is so affected they receive little or no income from production of the crop. The informational center at the Kuemper gymnasium also has representatives who can help if storm victims need food, clothing, housing or home furnishings, medical care, emergency funds, legal assistance, employment advice, property cleanup, home repair or reconstruction, business repair or maintenance or other official information.

Each circuit is allowed two delegates to synodical conventions. The next one is scheduled for next summer in Anaheim, Calif. After a lengthy debate, a resolution was passed condemning the establishment of the seminary in exile in St. Louis, Mo. Pastors and delegates also approved raising the salary scale for pastors and parochial school teachers. In other action, the Iowa West District agreed to assume 75 per cent of the support of church operations in the Philippines for .1975-75. Purpose of the estimated $400,000 contributions is to get people more involved with overseas mission work. In essence, the staff in the Philippines will be employed by the district instead of the synodical organization, according to the Rev. Koenig, circuit secretary. • SALESTAX (Continued From Page 1) spouse are presumed to nave produced 50 per cent of a couple's jointly held property, and that 50 per cent won't be taxed. Gerald Bair, deputy state director of revenue, said the whole tax break package will cost the state an estimated $40 million a year in revenue. He said the changes in the sales tax law will account for about $33 million of it. It's hard to figure what .the sales tax changes will save an individual family, said Bair, because family spending habits vary widely and incomes even more. But he said the department figures that for the average family of four with income of around $12,000 a year, the sales tax saving should amount to about $11 a person, or from $40 to $45 a year. Gov. Robert Ray has spoken with approval of the tax break package, saying it will provide significant" savings, particularly for low income lowans. There has been some grumbling about the sales tax exemptions, however, from grocers who contend it will cause them extra work or expense,, "T'k^^.jl 171 I Deaths.) rimerals Times Herald, Carroll, la. MRS. VERNE ENNIS GLIDDEN — Mrs. Verne (Dorothy) Ennis, 55, of Glidden died Thursday, June 27, at St. Anthony Regional Hospital in Carroll. Prior to entering the hospital she had been at the Perry Nursing Home in Carroll since January, 1972. Services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Dahn-Woodhouse Funeral Judge Asks for Affidavits on Trial Change WATERLOO, Iowa (AP)Black Hawk District Court Judge Peter Van Metre has asked attorneys in the Russell Fitz murder case to submit affidavits concerning a change in venue by Wednesday. Fitz, 27, of Waterloo had pleaded innocent to a charge of murder stemming from the June 6 strangulation death of a 2-year-old girl. Judge Van Metre heard statements Thursday from the attorneys and said he would make a decision on change of venue after studying the affidavits. Fitz's attorney, Robert Mahon, said Fitz would not be able to get a fair trial in Black Hawk County because treatment of the case by the news media might have prejudiced public opinion. However, Asst. Black Hawk County Atty. Robert Rausch argued treatment of the case by the news media was fair and something the public had a right to know. Rausch said Fitz could receive just as fair a trial in Black Hawk County as anywhere else in the state. Fitz, who sat quietly in the courtroom, had written on his pants: "I never killed that little girl. This is true. God knows I didn't." Mahon also cited the fact that he faces Black Hawk County Atty. David Dutton in the November general election for county attorney as a reason for a change in venue. But Rausch said Mahon knew of the situation before he agreed to take the case and could withdraw from the case, withdraw as a candidate or .withdraw that section of the chVhge in venue motion and a few groups who feel it r ™* ."*« '" v . e ' uc trP*t* thpm ,,nfaiflv. ^ '' ^ '^Img With pollt»CS'.V The body of Shelly Da. treats them unfairly. One of those is the Iowa Gasoline Dealers Association, whose vice president, W. M. Zentner, sent Atty. Gen. Richard Turner a letter asking him to rule whether food items sold through vending machines by association members are subject to the sales tax. Zenter explained that many members sell food, candy, gum, ice cubes and nuts through vending machines, and they are apparently taxable under the new law, although if sold in grocery stores, they wouldn't be. Zentner is unlikely to receive an option frorh Turner, however. The law says he can honor requests for opinions only from state officials, legislators and county attorneys. Jobless Rate Down in Iowa DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— Iowa's unemployment rate declined in May for the fourth consecutive month, the Iowa Employment Security Commission has reported. The May rate was 2.6 per cent, compared to 2.7 in April, 3.1 in March and 3.6 in February. The 2.6 rate was the same as in May 1973.

She was reported missing from the home of a baby sitter who resided in the same apartment building in which Fitz lived. Authorities said the girl had been strangled with an electric cord and may have been sexually molested. Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) —The stock market extended its recent declines today, but cut its losses with a late-morning round of bargain-hunting. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials, which had dipped briefly below 800 early in the session, was off only .86 at 802.80 at noon. Losers maintained a wide lead over gainers, however, on the New York Stock Exchange. Brokers said worries over rising interest rates were keeping the market on the defensive. But they noted some buying had come in each time the Dow dropped to around the 800 level in recent months. Hercules, Inc., was the most active issue on the NYSE, down a point at 40. Home in Glidden.

Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) — Farm commodity futures were sharply lower on the Chicago Board of Trade today. The expanding harvest of winter wheat in the Southwest and reports of more new grain moving into commercial channels so strongly influenced selling of wheat futures to produce a limit decline of 20 cents a bushel. There was some small recovery in Chicago wheat prices, but Gulf hard red remained on the bottom. The selling in wheat was a factor in the weakness of other grains. The nearby July corn option, however, was bought by some traders in spreading activity against sales of new crop options. A factor in the buying corn, oats and soybeans was a report of new, but light, precipitation. Despite the rain report, commodities in the soybean complex were weak. 3 Winners in Farm Contest Gerald Haubrich, Zacher Partnership and James Masching, all of Carroll, have won the Soil Conservation District (SCO) farmers contest in Divisions I, II, and III, respectively.

"I know of no one in the community other than Dr. Walter who had the respect and following it took to complete this job," he asserted. From the medical point of view, Dr. Robert Christensen, chief of staff at the hospital, spoke for the staff in expressing appreciation of the honored physician." Dr. Anneberg has always been concerned with the well-being of his patients and readily gives advice to new doctors beginning their practices," he said . '' Promotion of worthwhile new ideas is another of Dr. Anneberg's attributes. "He certainly would be an inspiration to young men thinking of going into family practice." Blincow then cited some of Dr. Anneberg's achievements and community activities. Born in Des Moines in 1899, Dr. Anneberg later moved here with his family and graduated from Carroll High School in 1917. Except for a few years overseas in military service. Dr. Anneberg has been a resident of Carroll since that time. He graduated from the University of Iowa College of Medicine and interned at Charles T. Miller Hospital in St. Paul and Children's Hospital in Iowa City. "'•; ;;'• , Professional organjz^tipns of which he is a member include the American Medical Association, Iowa Medical Association, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. of which he is a founding fellow, and the Carroll County Medical Society. He has served in every staff position at the hospital and has held several terms of office as chief of staff. Dr. Anneberg was also an active faculty member when the hospital had its own school of nursing. Besides the 75-year-old physician's work for the new hospital, he was lay leader in raising funds for the new First United Methodist Church, Blincow continued. Dr. Anneberg's involvement in community affairs includes past presidencies of the Chamber of Commerce and Carroll Rotary Club. He has headed the Rotary Foundation committee to raise funds for international scholarships for many years. Dr. and Mrs. Anneberg have served as officers of the Carroll County Alumni Association of the University of Iowa, of which Dr. Anneberg was a principal promoter. His concern for higher education extends beyond the college of medicine. Dr. Anneberg is also a patron of the university's art gallery. The doctor also promoted the Old Gold Development Fund. In 1969, Dr. Anneberg received the local Chamber's Community Service Award. One year later, he was one of four recipients of the University of Iowa Distinguished Service Award. As a conservative estimate, Blincow said that Dr. Anneberg has delivered 10,000 babies, some in the third generation of his care. "He has shared in the joys and tragedies of many, many people," the administrator concluded.

Fraud Warning WASHINGTON (AP) — Two recent alleged investment frauds that may have cost unwary investors more than $100 million have prompted the Securities and Exchange Commission to warn anew about special financial offerings. "Recent fraudulent schemes have been promoted by claims of a quick and high rate of return on money invested," the agency said Thursday. "Unfortunately, these investments often were stimulated by tips and rumors spread by friends, relatives and neighbors." One of the alleged frauds involved investments in an oil-exploration tax shelter that attracted many persons prominent in business and entertainment. The second, already the subject of SEC charges, concerns a wine venture. The SEC warned especially of so-called "Ponzi" or pyramid-type schemes whereby early investors are repaid with money obtained from later investors but where the operation itself yields little, if any, income. WASHINGTON (AP) —Comments from some House Judiciary Committee members suggest presidential lawyer James D. St. Clair has failed to punch any holes in the committee's impeachment case. "It's very helpful, but I don't know if it's convincing," Rep. Henry P. Smith III, R-N.Y., said of St. Glair's presentation on Thursday. "I think most of us were not persuaded of anything," said Rep. George E. Danielson, D-Calif. St. Clair, stating President Nixon's side of matters under investigation, winds up his two-day presentation today. WASHINGTON (AP) — Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz says he'll recommend President Nixon veto any emergency credit-relief bill that does not enable him to block certain government-guaranteed loans. Butz also called the proposed emergency bills designed to aid the livestock industry "very bad legislation" that is economically unjustifiable. A measure approved 28 to 2 by the House Agriculture Committee Thursday would allow such loans and give Butz discretionary review authority. But Butz says he will recommend the veto unless he is given power to specifically block the loans for "tax-shelter ranchers, some bankers that made a bad judgment or a large corporation" in the business. WASHINGTON (AP) — Former White House domestic counselor John D. Ehrlichman approved the break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist the weekend before the break-in occurred, prosecutor William S. Merrill charged in court today. Opening his case in the Plumbers trial, Merrill quoted Ehrlichman as saying in a phone call to White House subordinates about the then proposed break-in: "Okay, let me know if they find anything." Merrill said the-phone call occurred Aug. 31, 1971, four days before the break-in at the office of Dr. Lewis J. Fielding, the Beverly Hills psychiatrist who treated Ellsberg. Ellsberg subsequently was put on trial on charges stemming from the release of the Pentagon Papers but a federal judge dismissed the charges after learning among other things of the break-in at Fielding's office. •<• WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)—Remus Daniels.

DETROIT (AP) — In a move that could kick off a fourth round of auto price hikes during the 1974 model year, Chrysler Corp. says it is passing on major price boosts by the steel industry. The average Chrysler rise will be about $60 a vehicle, or 1.4 per cent. Chrysler said Thursday it is raising prices on cars and trucks because of the higher steel costs. The average $60 increase covers base price and options and will be effective next Monday. The announcement came little more than a month after U.S. auto makers said they anticipated no further price increases until 1975 models are introduced in September. A General Motors spokesman declined on Thursday to rule out a new GM price hike. "Obviously this additional steel cost increase will have to be considered in our continuing view of prices," he said. Ford had no comment. American Motors said it had no plans for an immediate increase. &' KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Federal Energy Administration has announced the opening of three regional offices, two in Nebraska and one in Iowa, to expedite confidential public inquiries into the pricing of petroleum products. The offices, at Lincoln, Grand Island and Sioux City, will be open on a limited scale, with FEA investigators available to the public every Monday morning and Thursday afternoon. James R. Newman, FEA regional administrator, said plans were being finalized for another area office in Davenport, Iowa. An opening date is to be announced later. Newman said the restricted office schedule was necessary to keep investigators in the field, checking complaints. AMES, Iowa (AP)—Some physical plant employes of Iowa State University remained off their jobs again Friday in a "sick in" that began Thursday. Members of Local 870 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employes are protesting a merit pay plan now before the State Board of Regents. The protesting workers have contended that a 7.5 per cent average raise in the proposed merit pay plan is not enough to overcome inflation. They also have objected to freezing the salaries of workers who are at the top of the pay range. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)— Total insured damage from tornadoes that raked Iowa earlier this month exceeds $18 million, insurance officials say.
