Priebe 3Y SENATOR BERL E. PRIEBE Again this week in the Iowa Serate we did isos'Jy committee work. I believe we car; thoroughly air committee stud?' bills which are now being introduced and soon we will be handling more bills on the floor. We are working on some of the various state agencies appropriations ask ings right now. I called a meeting regarding the box ear shortage. I worked or. this meeting all of last week and arranged to have several people who have authority to do some things to correct some of our problems. It was a good meeting I believe. We do not have any assurance we will get more box cars immediately but a lot erf people became aware of our urgent problem and are now getting interested including our Governor. He is very aware and has added his voice which is very powerful. We also have Senators Clark and Hughes assuring me that they will do all they can to help to get more transportation. Also Wiley Mayne has issued a news release asking Secretary Butz te not ship government corn at this time. I »m happy that I could help set up such a meeting and I did try to keep this meeting Fourth District CD) rather small and confined to my senatorial district. I believe I have more bushels of corn in my senatorial district than any other senator in Iowa so we have more of a problem than most of the other senators. After I had the meeting set up, we decided to make it a Senate Agricultural meeting and did have all of our agirulcutre committee members there. I want to thank all of the elevator managers and directors who came down to the meeting. I will not attempt to list the names of the people from my area who were here for the meeting as I feel the local papers are doing a service to the people in printing all of the newsletters and we can make these too long. I do want to thank all of the newspapers who will print our letter. Last week every paper except one did print our letter so our territory was well covered. I will follow up and keep people informed as to the progress on the box car shortage. The quickest way to solve the problem I believe is to quit shipping government corn and to get the box cars unloaded at the ports. Again, feel free to call ' me if you have any questions or information which you feel would be helpful.

The Iowa Bureau of Labor, therefore, will not be inspecting Iowa private employers as long as the restraining order remains in effect, or until the national office of OSHA gives its approval to Iowa's safety plan under the provisions of the Willi&ms-Steiger Act. State Labor Commissioner Jerry Addy said Iowa has submitted an affidavit on the case and that he may testify on the injunction proceedings scheduled for Jan. .6 in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, federal OSHA compliance officials will retain jurisdiction to inspect private employers in Iowa. Social Security A record $647 million was paid out in social security cash benefits to Iowans in 1972. That*s an increase of $166 million over 1971. The social security checks delivered in early October were the first to reflect the 20 per cent increase in benefits enacted by the 1972 Congress. Flood Insurance State Insurance Commissioner William Huff, III, has requested all insurance companies doing business in Iowa to advise their agents and policy-holders of the availability of flood insurance. For many years flood insurance was unavailable. Then Congress enacted the National Flood Insurance Act in 1968. For a community to become eligible under this act it must submit a written request to the Federal Insurance Administrator. Studies are then conducted for this federal agency by the Corps of Engineers and the Soil Conservation Service. These studies determine the actur- ial rates for both residential and commercial property. Private insurance companies then sell the flood insurance in these approved communities; they are subsidized by the federal government. About a dozen Iowa communities have qualified for flood insurance including Bettendorf, Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, Charles City, Fort Dodge, Sioux City, Waterloo and Iowa City. Equal Rights Hundreds of state laws affecting men as well as women will be subject to change if the equal rights amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified, according to a study by the Council of State Governments. Twenty-two of the required 38 states have ratified the proposed 27th amendment. Iowa was one of the first to ratify it. Potential social changes which could result from enactment of the amendment are abundant: men might collect alimony, women could work more hours daily, a married woman might be able to establish a residence separate from her husband's and use her maiden name. In some states, husbands could lose the legal right to control their wives' salaries. In 11 states women could no longer receive automatic exemptions from jury service.

AP News Analysis Chou En-lai Sees Soviets as Threat BY JOHN RODERICK Associated Press Writer TOKYO (AP) - Premier Chou En-lai sees the Soviet Union as the next potential threat in Asia following the Vietnam War and as a consequence believes American deterrent power is necessary to counter it. This view was given in Peking Thursday to a visiting member of Japan's ruling Liberal-Democratic Party, Takeo Kimura. Kimura told Japanese correspondents in the Chinese capital about it. Chou said that normally, following the easing of tensions in the area after the war winds down, Japan would not need its alliance with the United States. But he added that he recognized Japan would require the U.S.-Japan security treaty, with its nuclear umbrella, to defend it against the Soviet threat Chou added, however, that in the long run the treaty must run out if Japan is to become an independent power. As China sees the situation, there are two superpowers in the world— the United States and the Soviet Union— and though it has no love for either, it would react with alarm if one became measurably stronger than the other. In throwing his weight behind continuation of the Japanese security treaty with the United States, Chou dealt a sharp blow to the Japanese Socialists and other opposition parties which have campaigned for years to have the treaty scrapped. The treaty came into existence slightly more than 20 years ago, after the Com munists conquered China in 1949. Originally regarded as a shield against Chinese attack, it is now viewed by both conservatives and leftists in Japan as nearly superfluous in the wake of the recent rapprochement of the U.S. and Japanese governments with Peking. Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka has said repeatedly, however, that he will maintain the treaty while limiting some of its provisions. This will include a scaling down of some of the U.S. bases in the Japanese islands. Since Tanaka came to power last July, Chinese-Japanese relations have undergone a remarkable about-face. Prior to Tanaka's visit to Peking in September, during which he extended diplomatic recognition, the Communist regime constantly charged that a new militarism was emerging in Japan. SGT. STRIPES...
