i*. Republicans Will Vote on Proposed New Constitution By Harrison Weber Iowa Dally Press Association DES MOINES - Besides adopting a platform, Iowa Republicans at their up-coming state convention will vote on a proposed new constitution for the Republican party of Iowa. The main issue, at this time, on the constitution appears to be the number of members on the Republican state central committee. The document, as drafted, calls for two members from each of the six congressional districts plus the national committeeman and committeewoman, for a total membership of 14. This marks a slight departure from the present setup as the national committeeman and committeewoman serve in an ex-officio capacity and have no voting rights. Both would have a vote under the proposed draft. Republican State Chairman John McDonald reports he has heard proposals for increasing the membership anywhere from 14 to 26 members. Ben A. Webster of Des Moines has a minority report on file to increase the membership to four members from each congressional district, two men and two women. Some other delegates are talking about three from each district. McDonald said he really doesn't consider the size of the GOP central committee a major issue, although he expects it will receive considerable debate at the convention, July 19-20. "I think any chairman could Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, July 11, 1974 work with a committee of the size proposed, from 14 to 26," he related. "The problem is finding people with the degree of dedication required to fulfill the task; it's a very demanding thing," McDonald said. Most of the proposed constitution for the Republican party is an up-date of the present document and covers such things as auxiliary organizations, county committees, caucuses, conventions and meetings. The convention will start at 3 p.m. Friday, July 19, with district caucuses. The main order of business will be selecting district committeemen and committeewomen. The schedule: First district — Hotel Fort Des Moines. Second district — Hotel Savery.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You have two nosy friends who are more interested in Big Wall Street Issue is Where Are We Going? By Louis Rukeyser (Third of Five Parts) You can get a lively argument going on Wall Street over the question of whether it is now easier or harder than it used to be for the average investor to pick the right stocks. On the one hand, the average man has many advantages that were not available to him in times past. The flow of investment information has never been greater. New laws and regulations protect him against some of the more blatant forms of manipulation that pocked the market's past. On the other hand, the search for truly exceptional results may have .become more difficult. Perhaps most important, there is simply very much more competition at every level of investing, as the stock market has changed from the private battleground of a comparative few to an authentic marketplace of the millions. A generation ago, all you really needed was faith in the future of American industry. You could invest in the major corporations — the so-called blue chips — and, more often than not, your results would be excellent. By the 1960s, however, such "buy-the-blue-chips-and- forget-'em" techniques no longer supplied the magic answer for the average investor. In 1960, no chip could have been bluer than U.S. Steel. But the investor who bought its stock that year at the high of $103.50 would have found his stock selling for less than a quarter of that amount by 1971. Contrast that with the performance of investors who were shrewd (or fortunate) enough in 1960 to invest $1,000 each in Avon Products, International Business Machines and Xerox, three stocks whose greatness lay not in their past eminence but in their future potential. What did these stocks have in common? One characteristic was their consistency of earnings increases. Another is that they were leaders in fast-growing industries. Their sales and earnings grew not only consistently, but faster than the economy at large. This suggests that the alert individual investor may not be at as great a disadvantage as is sometimes assumed in locating these supergrowth situations. Some aspects, such as the company's financial position, may not be immediately apparent. (Solid growth companies tend to be aggressive in sales, but conservative in finance, without excessive long-term debt.) The initial interest in a potentially great stock, however, often comes simply from keeping your eyes open in everyday life. Brilliant investing stories have been DONT WAIT FOR A HEAT WAVE!

Practically any kind of business or profession offers opportunities for insights into potentially growing fields. The best way to begin is by taking your mind, as far as possible from the daily hysteria at Broad Street and Wall. Think big about this country, where it is going in the world and at home, what changes are affecting its people and the kind of lives they want to live. What will life be like in American five or 10 years from now, what trails will the pursuit of happiness have taken? In the 1960s, for instance, overwhelming profits where taken in the areas of electronics .and military technology. Will the '70s truly become a more peaceful period, in which America can beat at least some of its swords into plowshares? If that is your conclusion, it may make you think twice about investing in sword-makers. Similarly, can anyone believe that in the coming decade any administration is really going to crack down permanently on the soaring wage rates of the American workman? Not only does this suggest a pressure toward continued price inflation, it also requires that while the growth-minded investor will favor companies whose enlightened labor policies promote internal harmony and stability, he will try to find them in areas where labor is a relatively small portion of the company's total costs. Companies whose labor costs cannot easily be offset or passed on in the form of higher prices often overlap into another questionable category for the years ahead: mature industries with a high degree of government regulation. Particularly in an era of aroused consumerism, companies in these industries are unlikely to be permitted to grow exceptionally fast. The search for growth is also unlikely to take you into industries that are especially vulnerable to foreign competition. your private affairs than they have a right to be. Don't speak too openly.

PROVES POPULAR MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) — Government figures show that steel plumbingware proved very popular with residential builders and home owners in 1973. Plumbingware includes bathtubs, lavatories and kitchen sinks. Figures show that steel was used for 1,541,036 bathtubs in 1973 for a 48 per cent majority share of the market. Steel lavatories accounted for 1,804,490 units in 1973 for a market share of 28 per cent. And porcelain enamel and stainless steel sinks in the kitchen accounted for 4,850,099 units or 88 per cent of the market. Officials of Armco Steel Corp. here said they expect steel plumbingware to continue to grow in popularity in the future. By William J.Scherle (Fifth District Congressman) Common Cause, the self-anointed conscience of the American public, is witnessing a jarring backlash from the very people who would subscribe to its noble sounding aspirations of striking the effect of narrow special interests from government. More and more, these individuals realize they have been duped, for this so-called non-profit organization is sapping the public of hundreds of thousands of dollars to finance its slick influence-grabbing activities. Earlier this year, money for a costly full-page ad in the Washington Post which blasted a fund-raising dinner came from the coffers of Common Cause, but the group would not reveal the source of this booty. Like contributing members and lists of donors, publication of these Common Cause supporters was closely guarded. Meanwhile, their high-handed criticism of campaign contributions continues unabated, even though all Members of Congress lay open the books of their spending for public scrutiny. My campaign finances are a matter of public record as should be the questionable spending of lobbies like Common Cause. Perhaps a personal appointment would be the only way to pry loose this information, reducing'the secrecy it publicly abhors. But beyond this repugnant hypocrisy, people are even more disillusioned with the Common Cause operation itself. Its much publicized democracy appears a myth since policy decisions are dictated from the top and filter down from the paneled inner sanctum of John Gardner, Common Cause's founder and autocratic Chairman. In a recent interview, Gardner asserted his philosophy that all government institutions are destined to failure. But, if Common Cause members have envisioned debating this notion, they find such censure held at arm's length — meetings of the membership have been deliberately eliminated to forestall dissension. In a hapless move last week, Gardner & Co. berated the House Appropriations Committee for holding business meetings — where general funding levels are roughed out — in private. As usual, the Common Cause zealots had not done their homework. They should have learned that following all initial workup sessions, specific appropriation figures are abundantly analyzed and questioned by the press, Congressional staffs, and the public. I personally led the successful drive two years ago to open Appropriations' Subcommittee hearings to public scrutiny, providing another vital link in the accountability chain between the taxpayer and the bureaucracy. If Common Cause's smug myopia is not soon corrected, its followers may join its detractors who term the malady of its tunnel vision "common curse." Because of the enormous interest in one of Donald Kaul's recent columns oh the curious activities of George Plimpton, we are reprinting by popular demand our March 25, 1970 article detailing Plimpton's profligate project. While we certainly do not oppose the arts, such wastrel spending is offensive to all taxpayers. "A cultural clique, financed by the American taxpayers, is operating clandestinely within so-called literary circles of this nation. The scheme was initiated in 1966 when the National Foundation for the Arts appropriated $55,000 to New York society playboy and jet-setter George Plimpton to play the role of this country's cultural czar. With his dictatorial power, Plimpton is allowed to hand-pick his own panel of judges who in turn select the prose and poetry that are published in the federally subsidized anthologies that he edits. At the present time two volumes have been published and a third is due this June. Plimpton's literary lackies are currently editing Volume IV. So far his preposterous program has tapped the public treasury for $200,000. "A glance at the Plimpton operation reveals a selfish and sinister pattern of support to the same individuals and magazines. The chosen few receive $500 to $1000 for their work by a mere nod of George's hand-maidens. In the first volume published, six of the twenty-nine winning poems came from the magazine Paris Review, which to no one's surprise is edited by none other than our George Plimpton. The double-dealing does not stop here. Two authoresses for example, one in poetry and one in prose, each were awarded top prizes in both Volumes I and II, and then appointed by Plimpton as judges for what will appear in Volume III. Continuing this bizarre shake-down, Plimpton also appointed his pal and protege, Philip Roth, author of the shocking and scarlet novel entitled Portnoy's Complaint as a judge. General's Whiskers Sideburns, the style of wearing side whiskers and a mustache with a shaven chin, were first called burnsides in honor of Ambrose E. Burnside, a Federal general of the Civil War, who originated the fashion. Third district — Holiday Inn Downtown. Fourth district — Hotel Savery.
