(AP)- The cpry council of this West Texas town of 1,100 is returning to the U.S. treasury a check for $1,899 — the town's share under the new federal revenue-sharing program. Mayor Jack Cauble said that the check came with too many instructions and guidelines in the form of an eight-page pamphlet. "And the pamphlet said those were only temporary regulations and that permanent regulations were still to come," Cauble said, quoting from a letter accompanying the check the town sent to the Treasury. The letter added that "the conditions imposed for receipt and' use of the funds are substantial and completely unjustified in view of the apparently overlooked fact that this is our money we are getting back." The mayor said the council voted 3 to 1 to return the check after it found out that it would have to set up separate bookkeeping for revenue-sharing funds and a separate bank account subject to federal auditing.

ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, TUES., DEC. 19, 1972 Page 11 The World at a Glance Bob Hope SEOUL (AP) - A serious Bob Hope stood at attention today and received South Korea's Order of National Security Merit, Third Class, from Defense Minister Yu Jae-hung. The medal, one of the highest peacetime Korean decorations, was for the comedian's contributions toward improving the defsnse of South Korea through his almost annual Christmas entertainment of U.S. and U.N. forces since the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, the citation said. These visits greatly boosted the morale of American and other U.N. troops, the government said. Hope and his troupe arrived Monday. They are also performing for American forces in Thailand, Japan, South Vietnam and go to Bangkok Wednesday. Power Plants WASHINGTON (AP) - Rather than dirtyup the clear skies of the Southwest, the Interior Department today suggested that power plants using the region's coal should be built near the cities needing more electricity. A new report said that carrying coal from remote areas of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Nevada to population centers elsewhere in the country would cost about the same as building generating plants in the Southwest. Want Iowa Tax Relief From Revenue-Sharing DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Many Iowa legislators look upon the new federal revenue sharing program as a way to offer property tax relief to the people of Iowa — in addition to any.property tax relief afforded by revenue sharing funds received by the cities and counties. Gov. Robert Ray last week received a check for $12.5 million as the first installment of $32 million expected as the state's share in the revenue sharing program to be received by the end of the fiscal year- June 30, 1973. And a like amount is expected annually in the future. In an Associated Press survey on spending the funds most state legislators answered like Sen. Rogert Shaff, R-Camanche, who simply said "property tax replacement" or like Rep. (Sen.-elect) Willard Hansen, R-Cedar Falls, who just said "reduce taxes." But others had specific suggestions for spending the money. "The annual allotment should be used where needs are greatest, including education, law enforcement, pollution control, conservation, and aid for elderly citizens," said Rep.-elect David R. Stanley, R-Muscatine. "I would like to see Iowa's share of the federal revenue sharing program replace county government participation in the funding of our social welfare program," said Sen. William D. Palmer, D-Des Moines. "I feel this would not only be a more appropriate way of funding our social welfare program, but would also produce some meaningful property tax relief on the local level," Palmer said. Sen. Mhwette Doderer, D- Iowa City, was even more specific, contending that $11.6 million of the revenue sharing money could be used for the state to assume the countie- share of Aid to Dependent Children, making ADC funding half from the state and half from the federal government. Several legislators said they felt that much, if not all, of the revenue sharing funds should be applied to school aid programs to reduce property taxes. But other legislators had more novel uses for revenue sharing funds. Rep.-elect Lester D. Menke, R-Calument. proposed using the funds to make education TV available to the entire state." Rep.-elect Willis E, Junker, R-Sioux City, said the funds should be used "where the greatest need is — for example there is discussion of bonding for roads. Revenue sharing funds can be used for this purposes." Stanley noted that because revenue sharing funds for the current fiscal year were not included in the state budget, this will result in a one-time "windfall" equal to double payments for one year. He cautioned that this year's revenue sharing payment should "not be used for continuing programs because this would push expenses beyond income after the windfall is used up." Stanley suggested the one year windfall be used to "increase the state's financial re-serve, acquire recreational land, build essential buildings or pay a Vietnam Veterans' bonus." Several Legislators agreed with the Vietnam bonus solution for spending this year's revenue sharing funds. A majority of the members of last year's legislature approved of the idea of a Vietnam bonus. But passage to a bill granting a bonus was deferred as legislators could not agree how to finance one. Rep. John II. Clark, R-Keokuk, is reluctant to fund any on-going projects with the revenue sharing funds. Corn Drying DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Warmer weather allowed many Iowa grain elevators to resume drying corn Monday as fuel was available for drying operations. Robert Skinner of Des Moines, executive vice president of Iowa Grain and Feed Association, said that once the temperatures got above 10 degrees for a while, the fuel situation eased and the elevator operators started back drying crops. The drying operations had been discontinued because of shortages in the state of both fuel oil and propane. State officials last week estimated that some 60 million bushels of corn had piled up awaiting drying. Eddie Fisher LkS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Entertainer Eddie Fisher has sued the operator of a hotel here for $2.1 million, claiming that the hostel cut short a contract for 17 weeks after three weeks of performances. Fisher filed the suit Monday in federal court against Caesars World Inc., operator of Caesars Palace. The suit contends the hotel breached a contract that Fisher would be paid $765,000 to perform at Caesars Palace for 17 weeks between April 4, 1969, and Oct. 5, 1972. The hotel refused to permit Fisher to entertain after a three-week appearance, for which he was paid $135,000, the suit charged. Fisher asked in the suit for payment of the $630,000 he says is owed him under the agreement, $500,000 in punitive damages and $1 million compensation for damage to his reputation. A Pastime LONDON (AP) - Prime Minister Edward Heath has another pastime besides sailing and music. His friends say he loves "Tom and Jerry" cartoons. A special consignment is on its way from Hollywood for a show he is giving for children at his official country home of Chequers. The bachelor prime minister will be at the performance his friends say, because he would never miss an opportunity of watching mouse-basher Tom and cat-batter Jerry go through their antics. The disclosure didn't impress opposition Labor ite legislator William Price who tried — and failed — a few days ago to get "Tom and Jerry" cartoons banned from television because of their "appalling violence," which he said was unsuitable for children. But Price noted Monday night: "The kids will be safer watching "Tom and Jerry" than listening to Mr. Heath talk politics."
