Writer) DES MOINES - Figures just re leased by the Liquor Commission IOTOCU uj lire Liiifuui v^uuiiiuasion here for fiscal 1967 show revenue cording to Governor Uoveless down in border counties and up in interior Iowa. Revenue for the year which ended June 30 was off $95,028 or 5.6 per cent for the three western Iowa border stores in comparison with 19S6. For the five-year period 1953 through 1957 revenue. was down $199,100 or 11.1 per cent. The same is true along the eastern Iowa border with revenue off $119,322 or 3 per cent in 1957 compared with the previous year. liquor revenue from the nine stores was $747,226 less than in 1953, or 16 per cent off the pace, set five years ago. However, revenue from 12 stores in interior Iowa was up $324,248 or 2.6 per cent above 1956. Revenue for (he five-year period was up $924,838, an increase of 7.7 per cent. S Reason* There are threo reasons for the decrease in liquor revenue along Iowa's eastern and western borders: 1) a boost in liquor prices, 2) bootlegging and 3) outside purchases. The 5 per cent hike in prices in April of 1955 has caused many Iowans to purchase their liquor in surrounding states where they are able to get bargain prices, especially if they purchase a case of liquor or more. State officials also suspect that there is wholesale bootlegging ac tivity taking place In certain areas of the. state. Dubuque is certain to come under closer scrutiny. The reason —revenue was down $108,985 or 14 per cent from a vear ago Revenue is off $207,671 for the five-year period, or 22.2 per cent. Although Burlington's revenue was down only $4,411 from a year ago, or 1 per cent, it too will bear closer watching by state officials. Since 1953 revenue has decreased $177,495 or 28.9 per cent. . Don't Know Number Of course, a lot of this decline in revenue is because people are going outside the state to buy their whiskey. The trouble is that liquor are doing this and them to analyze the many people it's hard for picture. Earlier this year Governor Herschel C. Loveless suggested the liquor commission might increase prices by 5 per cent. This would 12 Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thursday, July 25, 1957 However, liquor officials are stymied.

It Open Door Policy has been the practice of the Highway . Commission hi recent years to conduct open meetings with the public and newsmen welcome to attend. The commission literally believes in its "open door" policy as pointed up at its last session. One large delegation had just filled the commission room at Ames and a member of the delegation wanted to know if it would be all right to close the door. Commission chairman Chris Larsen said to keep the door open, this prompted Council Bluffs Council- man Joe Katelman to comment: "You sure believe in the open debt policy." , May Visit Indiana Clayton Ringgenberg, director of the Legislative Research Bureau, this week is attending a conference on Interstate Co operation at Cleveland; Ohio.
