6 / DE8 MOINES REGISTER • Tu««., Aug. 26,1975 MINERS BRAWL WITH POLICE CHARLESTON, W.VA. (AP) — Striking coal miners, under orders from national union leaders to return to work, staged a protest march through downtown Charleston Monday and briefly skirmished with police. An estimated 37,000 miners — mostly in the southern part of the state — arc idled by the wildcat strike, now into its third week. Pickets have spread into a portion of eastern Kentucky and sympathy walk outs have sprung up in small sections of Ohio and Virginia. The Scuffle The skirmish with police broke out as some 300 marching miners stopped in front of the building housing the Kanawha County Coal Operators Association. Police attempted to confiscate a pickup truck being driven by one of the miners. As they forced the driver to disembark, fighting broke put on all sides. The dozen policemen backed down after about five minutes and the march continued. Earlier, the executive board of the United Mine Workers union voted unanimously in Washington to order the men back to work, but previous orders from UMW officers have been ignored. In a statement Issued after the board meeting, UMW Presi dent Arnold Miller said that now that the board had done its job and ordered the men back to work, "it is time for West Virginia's coal operators to make an equal good faith effort." The march began after the miners, demanding a right to strike over local grievances and an end to interference from federal courts, gathered at the federal courthouse. March to Office The miners marched to the UMW District 17 headquarters but found none of their union officials there. They went inside briefly, then left after putting a sign on the door: "Closed for strike." The walkout began in a dispute over a local grievance in Logan County, but has since become a general protest against companies and courts.

New state liquor store to open at Ankeny By LOUISE SWARTZWALDER A new state liquor store to replace one destroyed by a tornado will be opened Sept. 5 in Ankeny. The store, to be located in the same shopping center as the original store, will be opened in at 10 a.m. ceremony with state officials and Ankeny ^representatives. Since Tornado Ankeny has been without a liquor store since the June 18, 1974, tornado, when the liquor outlet and other stores in the shopping center at 700 Ankeny Boulevard were destroyed. The tornado also destroyed $63,000 in inventory in the store. Holland Gallagher, director of the State Beer and Liquor Control Department, said the new store will be a self-service facility, but will be larger than the original store. It will also lave a "limited wine cellar store," with a selection of about 25 best-selling wines available, he said. The store will have the same manager and many of the same employes as the original store. Many employes of the Ankeny store were transferred to jobs at the Des Moines Eastgate liquor store after the tornado. Customers to Eastgate Most Ankeny, customers bought their liquor at the Eastgate store, Gallagher said. Sales at that store, which has had one of the largest sales volumes, will probably go down next year, he said. The state was unable to open a new store in Ankeny sooner because the department had trouble finding a location and was unable to arrange for a .contractor to build a new store. The state leases all its 205 facilities. The store will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Friday, when it will be open until 8 p.m. NOW SHOWING FORUM I FLEUR 2 TOW IT Wit** AT ALL 3 I IfHMS tUT.

Culver told a conference of the American Road Builders Association and the national and Iowa Associations of County Engineers here that "the paper blizzard of redundant and needlessly complicated forms that business people and local officials have to fill out has reached the point of absurdity."
