Iowa City Heinz Hit; Food Buyers Not Panicking eels Strike Impact IOWA CITY A number of businesses in the Iowa City- Coralville area reported being hard hit by the current truckers' strike. 'Harry Keller, manager of Heinz Distributors in Iowa City said, "The situation is really bad. We usually ship over a million pounds a day of Heinz products. May Get Worse "That lias dropped to less than pounds and we ex- pect it to get Keller said. He went on to aay that if the situation continues, "We expect to lay off at least 50 percent of our work force some time later this week." Heinz employs 34 persons and is the main dis- tributing center for tjic western part of the United Stales. Keller was one of a number of plant managers in the Iowa City area who said even com- pany trucks were experienc- ing difficulty making runs be- cause the independents throughout Iowa had been successful in either blocking pumps or closing down truck stops altogether. Jack Newman, plant manager for Procter and Gamble, a major Iowa City industry, said, "The truck strike is definitely having a significant effect .on our business. "Our truckers have informed us that absolutely nothing is moving into the Chicago he said. Newman said he did not ex- pect any layoffs of employes because needed supplies al- ready were on hand. "But if the situation should continue for another week or so, it's difficult to say what could happen." Deliveries Off A representative of the Wil- liams Pipe Line in Coralville, a major supplier of gas and oil supplies for the area, said that deliveries were off 50 percent at least. The facility was blockaded for a short period of time Monday. The strikers, howev- er, when reminded they were on private property, left with- out protest. The company has been notified of impending picketing, but that had not materialized early Tuesday. A check of supermarkets in the area revealed needed sup- plies were still coming in. There were few evidences of panic buying by customers over the weekend and Monday. One supermarket manager said buying may pick up if peo- ple start to believe the strike will be of any duration. Another store manager said customers were questioning him on the need for stockpiling. The manager of Shcllcr Globe, Bob Hicks, said, "The situation is very bad. Many of our raw materials come from Ohio and our trucks simply can't get through." Hicks said 40 percent of their total operation had been vcnsely affected. "We are shift- ing schedules, trying to be as flexible as possible, but we are very close to having to lay off some of our people." A number of other Iowa City businesses such as Victoi Metals, said they had sufficient stock piles of materials and had not been seriously affected. Think small, use a Classified Ad for big results.

She replied, in u letter, "that the purchase of the property at 115 South Franklin was invalid because of im- proper procedure followed. "To wit: Execution of a pur- chase agreement prior to for- mal resolution authorizing the same by the council; improper execution of the purchase agree- ment in that it was signed by one of the councilmen rather than by the mayor, with due at- testation by the clerk, after the formal resolution authorizing the same; and lack of proper notice to the public prior to the special meeting at which the resolution authorizing the pur- hase was passed."
