I ountv Advance - - ' THURSDAY/ OCT; tl, 1966 Requires an answer . The blaJt at tiori of the de^artm&ht of agriculture fey an employe who resigned 'last W4M should be answered with a batter reply than that , he Was just disgfUiitlcd at nofgetting apr# motion. His salary was $2$,00ty A v «iln doesn't give that up unless 5 he ; is fleepfy moved. The employe was Frank Leroux, general sales manager'-'Of the Poretgn 1 AgfldUt ture Service in the department of,Sglrtcufc ture. He is a democrat.- He staged, his blast to be effective in the corning election,- arid for this reasM it may We tfis6oun«!ecl a felt. But the charges should be dhswered; He did not urge republican? Votes but demanded that the democrats 1 live up to 1 their promises. , . . , , IN AN ELECTION YEAR all figures should be viewed with a' bit of suspicion, particularly those designed M promote'a cause. The department of agriculture released some, rosy figures a few. weeks.ago. These were successfulfych£Men'ge ; tiI b9 Sen 5 - ator Miller as .being misleading. I',The department in the'scheirie' of politics 1 would save any bad reports until after the election. And the republicans .should be entitled to dig these out if possible prior to the election. "' The charge by Lefou* tfiaiWie fattrier has been written off politically seems to be true. The loss of people on the farm and the tremendous build-up, of urban population has affected politicians even in Iowa. LEROUX IS QUOTED as saying: "The farmers have the lowest share of the gross predict, ioweM reiurn oh gross ,yst return on. v t6tal capital invest- ?n1bn$>lowest return on capital investment per farm, lowest share of ; the consumer dollar, lOW&t; sharfe of the food dollar, low- .eit leVel of parity income, lowest return for firming versus' all other major businesses, and lowest performance on political promises." , Th'e! sia'fis'tics he presented purported the farmers' share of the consumer food 'dollar fell from 51: per cent in 1947 to ,39 per. cent in 1965.; He contends the farmer return on, investment in the last five: years has.been 6.8 per cent compared ft> 7.4 in the 1 fiisenhower administration and 12i4 dufitfg the period of 1949 to 1952. IT .IS OF COURSE evident the department figures differ widely from Leroux's figures. H is also evident the Freeman fig- irres fntiy KaV6 be'en doctored a bit just as it is probably also true tHe Leroux's figures are. doctored. . .-, , _ \Vhat is important is for the adminis- .trat'ion to conre up with a rebuttal, if it has brie', With: honest figures !and statistics. The old 6lteerva<ti6ri that figures don't lie but .liars figure'is of course pretty true in politics as well as in other Ways of life., >••;, And it is.also true that the number of Votes are carefully counted in government policies. The farm vote has decreased. The city vote has increased. City voters want cheap food: It may well be Leroux is right, and it's high time the administration lets loose with its figures. If the Leroux figures are let stand, then they must be right. situations . . The Harlan situation in which strikers rioted when the company brought in strike breakers has raised sonie interesting questions. The county attorney ait Harlan demanded the National Guard be called out. The governor refused. It would seem Governor Hughes was correct in not calling out the guard after 'District Court Judge Cullison asked the strikers to disperse and they did so. HoWeve^^int thesriotirig some .mobile homes were' wrecKed^ windows' were•"• bnK ken, and some people were injured in the melee. \ IT IS INTERESTING to see the strik- , ers turn to the Iowa right-to-work law against the company. The law provides that no concern which is struck can advertise for strike-breakers unless the fact the plant is on strike is noted in the advertising. In the Harlan. case the strike-breakers were hired in California and the advertisements did not disclose the strike condition. The company was clearly at fault if this sit' nation is true. The strike-breakers didn't enter into the rioting, and after a half hour or so the flake-up of tempers subsided. It was wholly unnecessary to call out the guard. HOWEVER IT IS ALSO interesting to note the charge that state agents sent by the department of justice in Iowa to Har> laif were interested only in finding out law infractions by the company, ,Tne state agents ignored the damage done in the rioting and 1 made no investigation of this facet it has been charged. The, state should be interested in all forms of ;law breaking, including the company auctions and also the actions of the strikers ;whp_ did considerable damage to propeirty. There should be no double .standard in crime investigation by the state. Governor Hughes said he did not dispatch the state agents,,that4t,was, the,,pro-^ virice of the attorney-general to direct the investigation. / THE SITUATION is interesting from a political angle because Iowa democrats have been particularly careful hot to offend the . big city labor bosses who deliver large blocks of votes to the democratic candidates. Governor Hughes has called for "revision,"; of the right-to-work law which would in effect repeal it and return industry in Iowa to the compulsory union shop. Governor Hughes was right in refusing to panic and call out the National Guard. He is wrong in trying to' disassociate .hini- self from the state agents'investigation. If the agents are one-sided it is certainly the governor's duty to set them straight, . The law should be equal for all. The company deserves no special consideration. The strikers deserve no special consideration. And, *h e rioters deserve no special consideration. , wiger The move to get more of the state road fuhds for use in Iowa cities is gaining steam and last week considerable publicity was given the request by the city group. Cities now get about 13 per cent. They ar6 seeking 20 per cent. The.,.s^a!e. i .hig!hjW&y commission is resisting any cutback on primary and interstate road systems. The' pinch, if it comes, will be on the money for farm-to-market and rural roads, Northern Iowa rural roads generally .i<r£ in pretty good shape and being conthv uajly improved. Southern Iowa has a bad road problem with hills arid land which dofes not bring in much tax;. The danger fof northern Iowa is an additional cutback where these roads have been built io give more money down south. If the state highway commission is given the right to distribute the road fund on any other than an area basis north Iowa will get hurt. That's what is being quietly proposed. A ii ' • •'-" J * I ' •' V "' .'"' i \ gents and the next session of the legisla- f lur«i will be asked to name it a university. There is some discussion about the name. People now have a time distinguishing between the University of Iowa and Iowa State University, Most hews people now just say the university at Iowa City or the university at Ames to avoid the conr flict. It gives the location better that way. Npyir with a third university in prospect the name is a puzzle, There is one suggestion made — that it follow the California system and be called the Iowa University at Cedar Falls — or IUCF. Frankly it will be confusing no matter what tiie powers that be come up with. And in the end it will be the university at Cedar Falls as far as news writers are concerned, plagued With trying to be specific on names. For instance, the Ames institution has the official name of Iowa State University of Science and Technology, a tongue twister. Name Ruby Some ten years or so ago the administration at Iowa State College at^Ames sujp- ce^ded in getting the name charigeid to the Iowa State University of something or other. The theory was advanced that this v/Quld attract better professors who had a better academic standing if they were at a university instead of a s^a-te college. It seems the name was most importanit from a status angle. It was predicted then, that the State College at Cedar Falls would soon feel the pinch of status and demand to be made a universjtv. That has now cojne to .pass. The State CSollege (by tJie way formerly State Teachers College) received some favorable treatment from the hoard of re- Only a few youtfc at* malcontents (t. f.

As all of us know only far too well, thisyear we are paying the 1965 taxes that are due thisi year and we are also, paying the 1966 taxes which are being deducted from paychecks issued to ALL . the workers within the* state.
