Iowa in Brief Morrell Funds DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Iowa State Employment Service has received $10,000 in supplemental appropriations for job placement in connection with personnel reduction at John Morrell Packing Co. in Ottumwa. Spokesmen for the service said the U.S. Department of Labor money will be used to find new jobs for 1,050 Morrell workers laid off permanently because of changes in the firm's shipping procedures. A four-man service team will be dispatched to Ottumwa, officials said Saturday, to work for 10 weeks exclusively with Morrell employes. Officials added that the service will work with the Iowa Department of Public Instruction and Ottumwa Area College to train workers willing to learn new skills.

ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, MON., JAN. 15, 1973 Page 3 Iowa Highways Claim Nine Lives Over theWeekend Flood BONAPARTE, Iowa (AP)An ice jam on the Des Moines River caused flooding in this Van Buren County town Sunday night. Highway patrol officials said that one of the streets was flooded and water was going into homes along the river bank. Officials said in that shortly after the river began overflowing its banks it seemed to moderate but then appeared to be on the rise again. Jefferson County officials brought in lighting equipment requested by the highway patrol. The Army Corps of Engineers had surveyed the area earlier this week and had considered closing the gates at the Red Rock Dam to halt the flood spread, but the ice jam apparently got so big that the river flooded its banks.
