? i American Capital System Being Destroyed, Iowa's H. R.GrossSays By Harrison Weber By Iowa Dally Press Association DES MOINES — Iowa's H. R. Gross may be the best known Congressman in the country. His reputation of being stingy with the taxpayers' bucks has earned him a national following. At 75, Gross in still full of vim and vigor. He's one of the few Congressmen who reads every word of every bill introduced. So far this session he has answered every one of the 393 record votes and quorum calls. After more than a quarter century of service, Gross will be retiring at the close if his present term for a more leisurely life. Iowa Republicans paid tribute to Gross last weekend at a testimonial dinner in Des Moines with GOP National Chairman George Bush as the featured speaker. The former radio newscaster from Waterloo is preoccupied with the national debt and worries about the United States drifting into socialism. In an interview Gross said the capital system in this country is being destroyed. How? "By inflation, by financial instability, by econimic instability, call it Church Services ST.

"We also have a vast army of regulators prowling this country; they are swarming across the country like lice." Can the tide be turned to capitalism? "It may be too late," replied Gross because "we're too deeply in debt. We have a net public and private debt of two trillion, 500 billion dollars of which we pay 31 billion dollars in interest a year. Only a comparatively few years ago we were operating this government on the cost of the interest on the present debt." What is the federal government doing about this? "So far the answer has been ST.

"You can't sustain free and private enterprise without capitalism," he continued. "In no way do I condone abuses that have been perpetuated in the past in the name of the capital system. However, you won't sustain free government in this country unless we have the incentive to private endeavor, the motivation of the individual and the precious freedoms that go UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Tenth and Carroll Streets Carroll, Iowa Rev, Allan Peterson, Minister Miss Maureen Ohde, Organist Sunday— 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, for the Lord's Day.

Mr. Conservative, as he often has been called, believes the main issue facing the country today is not Watergate, but "inflation and the terrible menace of another depression." On the question of impeaching President Nixon, Gross said he never dreamed that he, as a .Congressman, would be involved in the impeachment process.. He thinks the action to date, in the House Judiciary Committee, has involved too much politics. "I don't think we (House) should vote to impeach a President for political or capricious reasons." Gross has become known for ferreting out wrongdoing in government, perhaps the classic case in which place an important role was that of Bobby Baker, an aide to the late Lyndon Johnson when Johnson was Senate Majority Leader. Gross along with Sen. John Williams of Delaware triggered an investigation into Baker's activities which resulted in Baker receiving a jail sentence. As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Gross has long been calling attention to extravagant Iowa Bookshelf THE FEMALE WOMAN, By Arianna Stassinopoulos, (Random House, $5.95) A female Cambridge graduate, now working on her PHd at the London School of Economics, logically and fairly unemotionally, discards Women's Liberation in favor of Women's Emancipation. There are, she says, innate differences between men and women; the sexes are equal but different. Whereas Libbers insist intelligence and femininity are incompatible, Miss Stassinopoulos believes intelligence enhances femininity. Wheras Libbers think the whole of life should be judged by success in the busy marts of commerce, this author thinks family and career are equally important to the well-balanced female. Whereas men, in the Lib. view, are a highly privileged group continually oppressing women, the "Emancipation" view stresses the fact that the common man, very often, has been the burden-bearer of society; indeed, of civilization itself. (The Amazons didn't do so well running things either did they?) This author takes the •Modern Amazon apart for assuming those who don't agree with Greer, Millett, Friedan, et al, are dumb drudges who simply know no better. She resents their ill-thought-out attempts to put every human being, man or woman, into the same Unisex mold. Not only are men and women different, says she, but also there are differences between men and men and women and women; a fact of life which the Women's Liberation movement ignores. And so the battle rages. — Kelly Adrain. spending in government. He says this "wasteful use of money" is still going on. Gross is also a member of the Post Office and Civil Service Committee in the House and is highly critical of the move which made the Post Office a semi-private entity. "We're going to hold some hearings about the first of August which will demonstrate how much money is being spent with services being cut-back," he related. Through the years, Gross has championed the cause of the "little man." This is partly because of his wife, Hazel, his constant companion who has perfected that important ingredient in their marriage known as intellectual companionship. Among other things, Hazel reads the Congressional Record and circles passages that she thinks her husband would be interested in reading. Since he announced his retirement, Hazel says two of the nicest things that have happened to them center around two editorials, one in the Wall Street Journal, the other in the Waterloo Daily YOUR CHECKERBOARD CORNER- PURINA HORSE BLOCK * »»»tum IUWLIMINT Courier. "The Wall Street Journal paid tribute to him in an editorial; it's the first time they had ever honored a Congressman in that way," she said. The Waterloo Courier, in its editorial, said Gross is retiring with integrity. "That," said y Hazel Gross "is the biggest compliment he could have." When they officially retire, H. R. and Hazel Gross hope to have a home in the third congressional district where they plan to live in the summer and fall. Gross says he's not sure what he will do, but hints he may do a little more writing. The former newscaster turned politician, first elected to Congress in 1948, concedes that he is leaving Washington "frustrated and fed up with the futility of the place and the inability of Congress to act. He sees Congress as holding the controls to America's future. ''They .(Congressmen-and-women) can preserve this precious Constitution we have and its precious freedom. Everyone is involved, your children and mine."
