Over $23 Million in Vietnam Bonuses Paid By Harrison Weber Iowa Daily Press Association DBS MOINES - Over $23 million has already been paid in Vietnam bonuses to lowans. Ray J. Kauffman, executive secretary of the Iowa Bonus Board, reports that checks have been issued to 66,165 of the 92,359 applicants. The bonuses paid have averaged $351.89. In 1973 the Legislature appropriated $28 million for bonuses to veterans of the Vietnam conflict; this was supplemented with a $3 million appropriation during the 1974 General Assembly. Astrology For Wednesday July 10,1974 Bernice Bede OSD ARIES (March 21-April 19) You're not going to use very wisely something you'll be getting too easily. Later you're going to regret your folly. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Even though your ontside interests are a welcome change of pace, are they really worth their present price tag? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You're not taking proper advantage of all that's offered you. You have no one to blame but yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You're going to let yourself be sidetracked from a course that is most promising. The ANOTHER BIRTHDAY? Help celebrate with a Hallmark card. STONE'S K. of C. Bldg.—Carroll If applications dwindle, Kauffman believes the $31 million appropriation will be sufficient to process and pay all of the claims. But claims are still coming in sporadically, anywhere from 60 to 160 a week. * Veterans have until June 30, 1977 to apply for the Vietnam bonuses. Claims have been paid to 65,504 living applicants and to 661 beneficiaries. The bonus board has disallowed claims to 1,572 living veterans and to the beneficiaries of 19 veterans. Reasons for rejecting the end result isn't good. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) For some reason you feel indebted to someone to whom you really owe nothing. Others have tried to point this out, but you won't listen. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In bargaining situations, being the decent person you are, you want to give the other guy the break. Don't give away the store. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be sure to show any who grant you favors that you're grateful. Otherwise, they're going to be wondering about your depth as a person. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even though you're fortunate at this time don't press your luck beyond sensible limits or winnings will tarn into losses. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Wishful thinking will prevail over your common sense when you make a decision you know deep down you shouldn't make. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If intentions were graded you'd get the highest marks in your class, yet you won't do what you know should be done. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You are still in a cycle where you could do very well for yourself materially but no banker would take your actions today as collateral. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You'll have to curb your gambling instincts or else you're going to take chances far beyond reasonable odds. YOUR BIRTHDAY July 10,1974 Much will come to you this year with very little effort on your part. You will be unwise if you think the source is unlimited in scope. claims vary. For example, those in service between July 1, 1958 and Aug. 4, 1964 are eligible only for Vietnam area service at the rate of $17.50 a month. Many of the applications denied, Kauffman related, have been turned down because the person did not have any Vietnam service; none of the other service during this time period is compensible. People who were in military service from Aug. 5, 1964 to June 30, 1973, are eligible for $17.50 a month for Vietnam area service and $12.50 a month for other service, up to a maximum of $500. Between Aug. 5,1964 and June 30,1973 a veteran who did not serve in Vietnam is entitled to $12.50 a month, up to a maximum of $300. "The board has also denied quite a few applications because the person received a bad discharge, not with honor," Kauffman reported. Another reason for some claims being rejected, Kauffman noted, is because the person did not serve a minimum of 120 days on active duty. "A number of applicants have been turned down because the individual was on Times Herald, Carroll, la. -y Tuesday, July 9, 1974 / active duty for training purposes only. They served for six months and then went back on reserve status," Kauffman said. Also, if a person received a Vietnam bonus in another state, that individual is not eligible to receive a bonus frem Iowa. FUNNY BUSINESS ED.

Y. (AP) — Can snacking hold more appeal for college girls these days than streaking? Apparently. The delicious thought of digging into a box of cereal recently overcame the urge of a group of students at the state university here to witness a streaking incident right under their dormitory windows. As the streaking was about to begin, one hungry coed suddenly found a box of a natural-type cereal and headed back to her room — by herself, she thought. She was immediately pursued by a dozen other girls who abandoned the streakers for a chance to snack on the cereal instead. She was so amazed that she wrote a letter to Quaker Oats, producer of the cereal, to tell them about it. C. Country Patchwork in acrylic screenprint. Multi-colored. D.
