WEISBROD IMPLEMENT CO. FENTON, IOWA used by Iowa businessmen in place of parcel post. Edward V. Polusky, UPS Iowa manager, said: "We had been looking forward to providing Iowa shippers with the same service enjoyed by their competitors who ship into Iowa from other states. We are sorry that the commission's order will prevent us from doing so." In explaining the authority that has been sought by UPS in Iowa, Mr. Polusky said UPS was prepared to offer daily pickups and deliveries and other service features not now provided in Iowa by parcel post. The UPS service would be offered in Iowa at rates comparable to, or lower than, parcel post, he said. UPS now operates in Iowa under authority of the Interstate Commerce Commission, making daily pickups of small packages at the establishments of over 1,000 ship pers in Iowa. It delivers packages from these Iowa businessmen to receivers in 20 other state sin the Midwest and South, and similarly makes daily deliveries into Iowa from the other states. "The application which the commission rejected would have allowed Iowa businessmen to have daily pickups and deliveries of small parcels shipped wholly within Iowa as well," Mr. Polusky said. "Iowa businessmen who have heard of the decision are disappointed by it. We regret that we apparently will be unable to accommodate them." Two St. Joe Students Tour With Singers ST.
