Omaha Fears Results of Tax Abolition OMAHA, Neb. (AP)—Will Iowa's abolition of the sales tax on grocery food hurt Omaha's economy and tax revenue? Mayor Ed Zorinsky has asked the City Finance Department to keep an eye on tax revenue. Zorinsky's administrative assistant William Kranda said he understands Council Bluffs grocers are planning a public relations campaign to point out new price difference. Nebraskans pay 3 Ms per cent sales tax on food. Before Monday, lowans had paid three percent. For a family that buys $40 worth of groceries a week, the difference is $1.40, $72.80 a year. Kranda said if the state increases the sales next year to help fund the state aid to education bill passed this year by the legislature, the Iowa-Nebraska food price difference could be as much as five per cent. That would be $100 a year to the family with the $40-a-week grocery budget. Kranda said, "Usually, the convenience of shopping nearby "outweighs the difference in sales tax. But there's a breaking point." Omaha City Finance Director George Richardson said the city receives about $3.75 million a year from the tax on food and that he would be against any move to abolish the tax to help Omaha grocers compete. She was born in Indiana Aug. 18, 1910, the daughter of Harry and Flossie Flora Krauss. The Wherretts came here eight years ago. Surviving are her husband; a daughter, Marjorie Bartholomew of Kirkman; two sons, Robert at home, and James of Omaha; two grandchildren. Services were held at 2 p.m. Monday in Merrill's Grove church, with the service conducted by the Rev. Glenn Hammer of Harlan, area minister of the American Baptist church. Burial was in the church cemetery. Crops Need Rain DES MOINES, Iowa (API- Clear skies and warm weather provided good conditions for farmers to cultivate hay harvests and do late planting, the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said in its weekly report Monday. During the week ending Monday, 5.9 days were suitable for fieldwork. Rain was needed in many parts of the state, especially in the west and north, the survey said. The outlook for corn was reported very good in the western third of Iowa but ranged from good to poor over the rest of the state. Weed control ranged from good to only fair. Some late planting was being done in southeastern counties. The reporting service said soybean planting was virtually complete, with most fields emerged. Some replanting was done because of hail and storm damage, and hot, dry weather was hurting some of the late-planted beans. The survey indicated the state's alfalfa harvest was 89 per cent complete with good to excellent yields. The oat crop was 86 per cent headed and in mostly good condition, although the outlook was hurt by hot weather during the last week. Simpson to Get 2 Grants WASHINGTON (AP) — Simpson College will receive two construction grants from the Office of Education totaling more than $500,000, Rep. William Scherle, R-Iowa, announced Monday. One of the grants is for $455,065 and is to be used for construction of a physical education facility slated to begin March 1,1975. A grant for $46,389 is for renovation of the Carnegie Hall of Economics and Business Administration starting Oct. 1,1974. Violations (Continued From Page 1) sumer credit law which includes several sections for consumer protection. It increases the allowable , interest on revolving charge accounts to 18 per cent and 15 per cent on closed-end accounts such as the one-time purchase of a major appliance. Several major department store chains in Iowa announced Monday that they were immediately going to the 18 per cent interest on credit card accounts. Spokesmen for Montgomery Ward & Co. said in Des Moines that it charges 18 per cent on all accounts—new and old—for purchases made since Monday. An official of J.C. Penney and Co., Des Moines, said she was not sure if the new rate applied to old accounts, and would await word from headquarters in Minneapolis before deciding. On Monday, a spokesman for Penney's said that 18 per cent would be the rate for all revolving credit accounts. But Sears Roebuck and Co. and Younker Bros, said they would wait until August 1 to charge the 18 per cent rate. Sears officials, apparently aware of the section, sent notices in last month's billing that rates would be raised and told customers they would be asked to sign new credit agreements when they make their next purchase. Younkers has yet to notify many of their customers that they are increasing interest. Trent said the Sears method of asking customers to sign the new credit agreement will be legal, but said customers will not be required to sign the new agreements. If the customer does not sign the new agreement, the firm can't increase interest rate to that customer for three months. "The only way (a store) might get around it is to give everyone a new account," Trent said. But the legal counsel said this might be interpreted by the courts as a way to get around the three-month Louis W.

The Weather in Carroll Wall Street CHICAGO (AP) —Newcrop soybean futures advanced 10 cents a bushel on the Chicago board of Trade today, but wheat and corn futures were weak. : Soybean oil gained about 75 points, while soybean meal lost $3 a ton. Oats prices were mixed. Some of'the strength in soybeans appeared to be a carryover from the previous session when prices had advanced the limit of 20 cents a bushel. New buying was attributed to effects of the violent storm that raked sections of the midwest overnight. The trade expected some soybean planting to be delayed because of the storm. Oil and meal were partially affected by the beans move. There was some accumulated buying from the previous session on wheat, corn and oats on the opening, but it dried up quickly. N.Y. Stocks NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market crept backward in very slow trading today. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was down 3.44 at 802.80, and losers led gainers by about 3-to-2 on the New York Stock Exchange.

A large crowd watched as Glidden and Carroll firemen axed holes in the roof to get access to the attic while the firemen battled not only smoke and fire, but high winds as well. The fire was contained in time to prevent any damage to other buildings. No injuries were reported. Glidden fire chief Jerry Becker said Tuesday morning the fire apparently was caused by faulty wiring. He said no estimate of damage is available, but the house and contents were nearly a total loss. Bar Silver Firm Sales DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Des Moines real estate developer Irvin Caspe told the Iowa Natural Resources Council Monday he wants to build a restaurant in the middle of the Walnut Creek flood area near 63rd Street and Grand Avenue in Des Moines. Caspe said his lot is several feet higher than the surrounding land and becomes an island when floods occur. "I'm not asking to build recklessly," Caspe said, adding that his restaurant "would not have detrimental effects." The council said some government agencies discourage construction in the area and decided to hold a public hearing on Caspe's request.

(AP) - District Court Judge Preston Dial today reversed himself and agreed to allow newsmen in the courtroom during jury selection for the trial of Elmer Wayne Henley, accused in the Houston mass murder case. Heney, 18, is charged in six of the 27 deaths. Asked why he had changed his mind, Dial said, "It seemed to be the appropriate thing to do at the time." However, photographers will still be barred from the courtroom and the jury room. Dial on Monday barred newsmen and the public from the room where the jury was being selected. Dial did not immediately indicate if the relatives and the public would be admitted to the courtroom. Attorneys for the San Antonio Express-News and the San Antonio Light, local station KENS-TV, The Associated Press and United Press International had protested Dial's ban. WASHINGTON (AP) — Cattlemen in Australia and New Zealand are holding livestock from market because of depressed world prices and the availability of excellent pastures in which to put them, meaning that beef imports will be down sharply from earlier indications, Agriculture Department officials said Monday. Therefore, the officials said, there will be no need for President Nixon to reimpose import quotas at the present time. He suspended those two years ago, and producers and many members of Congress have urged they be put on again to help the depressed U.S. cattle industry. Richard E. Bell, a deputy assistant secretary of agriculture, told a news conference the situation would be watched closely in case the meat import flow changes from the reduced level now indicated. LOS ANGELES (AP) — The former head of Howard Hughes' Nevada operations has won his $17.3 million defamation suit against the billionnaire recluse. How much money Robert A. Maheu gets will be decided at a later phase of the trial. A six-member U.S. District Court jury made the ruling Monday after a four-month trial and four days of deliberations. The same four women and two men will set the damages in the second phase of the case, set to begin Oct. 8. * "Naturally, I am very pleased," Maheu said after the verdict. "I feel vindicated." The suit was filed 18 months ago after Maheu said he was defamed by Hughes—or a voice purporting to be Hughes—during a telephonic news conference. The voice said Maheu was "a no-good, dishonest son- of-a-bitch and he stole me blind.'' TOLEDO, Iowa (AP)—A special primary election got underway in four Tama County precincts Tuesday, and the outcome was expected to settle Iowa's disputed 3rd Congressional District's Democratic primary race. Rep. Stephen Rapp, D-Waterloo, won the nomination in the June 4 primary by defeating former Federal Communications Commissioner Nicholas Johnson by 62 votes. However, Indians living on the Mesquakie Settlement in Tama County secured a court injunction against certification of the ballots. They claimed they had been denied the right to vote because no polling place had been set up. U.S. District Court Judge Edward McManuson June 24 ordered a special primary in the four precincts, saying it would assure the Indians their right to vote. Rapp held a narrow 52-vote edge in the four precincts during the original primary. There are about 2,600 eligible voters in the four precincts. WASHINGTON (AP) - Alexander Butterfield, a star witness at the Senate Watergate hearings last summer, was the first witness before the House Judiciary Committee today as it opened the final phase of its impeachment inquiry. Butterfield, who disclosed the existence of President Nixon's secret taping system, faced a day of questioning behind closed doors about the operations of the White House staff during the period of the Watergate investigation Now head of the Federal Aviation Administration, Butterfield was Nixon's appointments secretary at the time. The committee, which has received a vast amount of evidence concerning the activities of Nixon's aides, wants to see how it relates to Nixon himself. He is the first of 10 witnesses the committee has listed as possible subjects for examination before July 12, when it is due to stop taking evidence and start deliberating on proposed articles of impeachment. WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has passed and sent to the Senate a bill authorizing $480 million to deal with problems of juvenile delinquency and runaway youths. The four-year measure, approved Monday on a 329-20 vote, would establish a juvenile delinquency prevention agency in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The House defeated 210-144 an attempt by Rep. Albert H. Quie, R-Minn., to shift jurisdiction over the new agency to the Justice Department's Law Enforcement Assistance Administration. WA'SHINGTON (AP) — A grower's organization says soybean farmers are planting 52.2 million acres for harvest this year, sharply lower than projected by the Agriculture Department. The American Soybean Association of Hudson, Iowa, said Monday it based its acreage on surveys made last month among 1,400 farmers in 27 states. According to USDA, wet weather in corn and cotton areas has forced many producers to switch to soybeans. Last week the department said the result could be that the soybean acreage could increase "somewhat above" the 55 million acres farmers indicated last March. COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP)—The Council Bluffs City Council apparently disagrees with County Atty. Lyle Rodenburg on the city's responsibility to prevent the showing of the film "Deep Throat." Monday Rodenburg had said the state's obscenity law applies only to minors and said there is no law to preyent the showing of "Deep Throat" in Council Bluffs. However Monday night the Council Bluffs City Council voted to "take appropriate legal action" to prevent the film from being shown. City Atty. Hugh Finerty outlined Iowa's obscenity law to the Council saying the law left enforcement of obscenity cases to the state, through county attorneys.
