Mrs. Maley also.said there were "other irregularities" in the records of the 1969 hunting and fishing fund. She refused to elaborate further. Auditor Smith said his office was auditing all of the Polk recorder's books for 1969, in addition to the hunting and fishing books. Smith said he had no knowledge of any '"irregularities" in the recorder's books. He described the audit as part of the "regular annual audit of all courtly offices."

Different View Jesse lakes a different view on crime: "Most crimes are committed ouLflLejMnprnJc Jiejcessity. We need to combat the reasons behind them - the economic plight of the criminal." He advocates community rehabilita- lion centers to allow Criminals to work themselves back into society. Jesse proposes beefing up the Iowa Commerce Commission to make it an effective regulator of business. Their pay should be doubled. They're uunderstaffed and underpaid. And they need facilities and the technicaj experts to perform adequate supervision of companies." And Jesse had some strong words about utilities: "I'm not convinced of the legitimacy of some of the Iowa Tower and Light Co. advertisements. Why should our light bills pay for advertising that tells us how great the power company is?" City Wage Tax And why, he asked, should Iowa Power promote advertisements selling color TVs — and then pass the costs along to consumers? Jesse also criticized the telephone company for lowering rates on long distance calls, and raising local rates. And he •added:- "When I bought my house, there was a phone already installed. Yet the telephone company can charge for earnings tax for wage earners who work in a city but don't live there. "This could eliminate the property tax entirely," he said. "And we could use part of it' for anti-crime' measures." . An advocate of industrial growth, Parker said "we have lever begun to use our poten- ;ial in Iowa." He proposes tax Breaks to get industry into the slate. Back to Land •. To get'people out of the cities arid "back to the land," Parker would like to see the state donate a five acre plot of land to any family who agrees to farm t. "On five acres they could grow ajl the groceries they leed," he contends. Jesse advocates changes in the tax structure: Raising the state income tax for higher income brackets, paying school costs with general stale funds, and raising the corporate income tax. Parker is a real estate agent and owner of the Parker Vacuum Cleaner Supply Co. He is married, has three children and ives at 821 Hickman road. Jesse lives at 2016 Avalon road, and is single. He has been -with the law firm of Jesse, Le Tourneau and Johnston for six years. The winner of the Democratic primary will face-David-Lee Smith, who is unopposed for the Republican nomination.
