Shut-Down Iowa Beef Still Plans Expansion DAKOTA HTY, Neb, (AU) — Iowa Beef Processors, Inc., says it plans to star! work on a special fabrication unit at its plant Mi Dakota City despite a walkout which has shut down the plant since last July 15. The plans were outlined in a letter from Arden C. Walker, IBF industrial relations vicepresident, to I a w ie G. Anderson, Local 222, Amalgamated Meat Cutters and Butcher Workmen of North America business agent. I nion Position Walker set no date for re sliming operations and said IBP wants to know the union s position on employes reluming to work before it does so. Once operations resume in the special fabrication sion, other divisions wi reopened at “later appl cpi i ate dates,” Walker s said. The letter, dated Bt which appeared in an Iowa Beef Processors advertisement in Thursday s Sioux < ii> Journal, ''aid it was a response to a demand last Sept. 20 bv tin National Livestock Feeders Assn. for reopening the plant Wage Issue The walkout started in support of union contract demands. The union asked $4.20 an bour for floor workers in processing and killing instead of the present basic $3.19 an bour rate. IBP last Sept. ll made an offer calling for a three-year contract with pay increases of SO cents an hour in the first year and 20 cents an hour in each of the next two years, total represents an actual cutback In government activity. The total includes more than $450 million appropriated for a rural electric loan program which is still being carried on, but is using government-insured private funds rather than the treasury dollars loaned in the past In addition, the total includes sizable carryovers from past years in a fund for building forest roads and trails which had mounted far beyond the average spending levels of recent years. Counting carryover funds, the Forest Service had nearly $ 0 0 5 million theoretically available for road and trail construction in the current 1973-74 fiscal year. Budget officials have Instructed the service U bald actual spending ta $122 mllltan cam pa red with nearly lilt mllllan in the IIH TS year, thus leaving nearly $493 mil-lian la the impanndment calami. The list of frozen funds also includes a number of Items which have stirred sharp controversy in recent weeks. Congress allocated $150 million in new and carryover funds combined for rural water and sewer grants, but White House budget officials first indicated they would freeze all of the money and later partly relented with a decision to release $30 million of the fund. The congressional rural caucus, a rural-oriented group of 22 house Democrats, has decided it will not Im* satisfied with the $30 million compromise. A caucus spokesman said last week the group is actively exploring plans to force the release of the remaining $120 million Sally Joins Iowa Cattlemen’s Staff AMES - Jack Safly, 30. a native of rural Ames, was recently hinxl as a field representative for the Iowa Cattlemen's Association. Safly comes to the association with a background in agriculture having been born and raised on a farm six miles west of Ames. He has been closely assoc lated with the cattle industry working with his father, who has an Angus cow-ca lf herd. At present Safly lives on an acreage southwest of Amos with his wife Julie, and two young sons, Mathew and Mark. 6th ANNUAL (bv i letter AIL FANCY APPLES POUND 29'.. 5 lbs $1.25 Srach't Choc, C«v*r J PtANUTi    694    ,b Jonathan Applot IHI. 5,99 (penal »*fro (on<y I*** 'bb ®'’'1 EXTRA FANCY DELICIOUS ACCUS    bu*    *    99 Rad or Whit© No • POT ATOIX IOU IU*.

Under the formula for 1974, if I hi* import door w as closed to allow only tight quota supervision, the basic allocation permitted to enter the United States would he less than 1.03 billion pounds. But the law permits imports to exceed that base quota by IO percent, meaning that if the formula were in operation for 1974 no more than 1.13 billion pounds could enter. Thus, the decision by the Nixon administration to suspend (juota another year means that about 445 million pounds of additional meat can enter the country. If a beef glut materializes next summer and fall, causing cattle prices to plummet, some of the loudest cries expected to Im* heard on Capitol Hill will be those of producers seeking the restoration of tight quota supervision. Steps Outlined To Legalize Old Gas Pump Sales DES MOINES (EPI) - Iowa Agriculture Secretary Robert Lounsberry Friday outlined temporary emergency steps so retail gasoline dealers can legalize gas sales from pumps not equipped to register sales of more than 50 cents a gallon. Lounsberry, whose department inspects and licenses more than 30,(KH) fuel dispensers annually, said the newer gasoline pumps can record sales up to 99.9 cents a gallon, while older pumps usually cannot register gas sales of more than 49.9 cents a gallon. Iaiunsberry said until old gas meters can be updated, the following procedures will in1 recommended Pricing gasoline in whole cents a gallon; setting the unit price at one-half the actual selling price; affixing lablels to the face of the pump using figures that are of similar size; or registering only one-half the actual total price with a proper sign displaying; the fact that the price is only one-half the total.

IO, Finance Minkler John Turner announced Friday. The surtax, three cents a pound on live cattle and six cents a pound on beef, was imposed Nov. 3 At that time the government said unusually heavy imports of cattle and beef from the United States were threatening the stability of the Canadian market The flood of imports was caused by th#* lifting of President Nixon's price controls in September, prompting U. S. producers to release beef and cattle they had been holding off the market. Turner promised to keep the surtax under constant review and on Nov 30 announced the government’s intention to maintain it.
