For Portugal, and indeed the whole Iberian Peninsula, is an essential part of the West." True, they buy rods and reels, line and hooka and sinkers, boats and outboard motors (which makes the Mercury outboard people quite happy), but lures? — never. And throughout a season they catch a lot of fish, proof of the mastery of the art of presenting bait In a natural manner to a fish. And this is not a simple thing. Take the supposedly easy thing of attaching a worm to a hook. How many ways can it be done? LOOKS NATURAL I. Threaded on — used primarily by kids and bullhead fishermen who want a bait to stay on the hook in the face of strong nibbling by a fish that is slow to swallow the hook. MORE VARIATIONS And if possible the minnow- dunkers use more variations than those who try to drown worms. They hook minnows everywhere but in the ear. Favorite spots are through the lips (for trolling, so the minnow will move through the water head first), through the tail or back (for fishing with a bobber, so the minnow will be able to swim freely and look natural to the fish), or through the head (for ice fishing in the northern tier of states, where the light nibbles of perch will strip a minnow "from the hook before the fisherman knows he has a visitor). And although it is true that Oftimes the "lure" fishermen look down their noses at the "bait" men, there is little reason for this, the Mercury outboard people claim. For one thing, the bait men were here first. And for another, a five-pound bass tastes just as good when caught on a minnow as he does falling for an artificial bait. Over 1.5 billion spent By Iowa manufacturers Iowa manufacturing plants poured more than 1.5 billion into the Iowa economy last year through local purchases, the Iowa Manufacturers association said today. Much of the total was spent for raw materials which were used in the production of finished products estimated at $5.25 billion last year, the first time industrial production has topped the S5 billion mark in Iowa. A survey by the Iowa Manufacturers Association showed that plants employing approximately one-third the manufacturing workers in the state spent $524,915,856 in 1960 for tocal purchases. Using that base, it was estimated that all plants in the state paid out $1,574,747,568 for local purchases last year. An earlier study by the IMA, based on information complied by the Bureau of Business and Industry of the University cf tow a, showed that products from Iowa farms provide raw materials for more than 25 per cent of the factories in the state. Those factories employ more than one-fourth the manufacturing workers in Iowa. "Iowa industry makes a major contribution to the economy of the state," said Harry D. Linn, executive vice president of the IMA. "This contributiori. underscores the importance of maintaining a good industrial climate in k>wa to foster the growth of existing industry and make the state attractive to new industry."

That seems to be the case with the bill to establish an office of International Travel. Offices will be located in key locations abroad, with the purpose of encouraging travel to this country and to provide interested people with information they want and need. We have been the only nation of-any consequence without such a travel service. That lack has been costly. We suffered what might be termed a "travel deficit" of about a billion dollras last year. That was the difference between what American tourists spent abroad and visitors from abroad spent with us. It is one reason why our gold reserves declined.
