Otherwise, why go Noting the return to the road by many truckers, Rambo said he and several other drivers "are getting out of this dispute. We've been spending almost 2-1 hours a day on it. I guess the radicals can take over now." Tubbs reopened for business Thursday afternoon. Also open- ing Thursday was the Hawk-I Truck Slop in Coralville. Herald Smith, president ol Cedar Rapids Steel Transpor- tation, Inc., said some of his trucks are again on the road, "but there is still a lot of confu- sion. Customer Pressure "Customer pressure has forced us to start up some of our trucks. We just can't stay shut down forever." Smith said the renewed opera- tion will be primarily in the polar division food distribu- tion. "Our steel operation is shut down from Chicago he said. Smith said he is keeping his drivers out of reported'hostile areas such as Ohio and Pennsyl- vania. All of the trucks CRST has running are company owned. None of the owner- operator rigs leased by the com- pany is on the road. Not Running Rambo said independents are not running in the Waterloo and Dubuque areas either. He said the independent truckers plan to meet in Waterloo Saturday to review the situation. Rambo said owner- operators want a rollback in diesel prices. He said fliesel fuel in Cedar Rapids is now 44.9 cents a gal- lon. "Six months ago I was pay- ing 27.9 cents for diesel he said. Tubbs was charging 43.9 cents a gallon Friday, but there are reports the price is going to increase by four cents a gallon.

The fuel cost is still out of sight, and I still can't see where I can make a dime." A group of 125 striking truckers in the Council Bluffs area voted not to return to the road. Some industrial plants where workers had been laid off because of the truck shutdown, were calling back some em- ployes .in hopes products could be shipped. Dubuque Packing Co. recalled of its 2.80C workers. Wilson and Co. officials, where 150 persons have been on layoff, said no further employes would be laid off Fri- day, and possibly some would be recalled. The Iowa highway patrol said there were no reports of vio- lence in the state in the last 24 hours. State Files Tax Liens Against Iowa City Man IOWA CITY The state of Iowa has filed tax liens in the amount of against James William Hanson of rural Iowa City. Hanson .was arrested early Thursday in a rural Johnson county farmhouse and charged with possession of marijuana. The Friday tax liens filed in ;he Johnson county recorder's office, claim that Hanson failed to pay in state income axes in 1972 and 1973. The state further claims that Hanson failed to pay in state sales tax from the year 1968 to 1974. The amounts mentioned are claims of tax plus interest and penalties. It Pays To Advertise1. pected imports February and Stable Level? Imports of crude oil and re- fined products have hovered around 5.1 to 5.2 million barrels a day during January, figures estimated by Sawhill's office to be the stable import level under the embargo. Uhle reported, however, that the advisory subcommittee ex- to increase in March. First- quarter petroleum imports, he estimated, would average about 5.5 million barrels a day, some higher than last week's level. Uhle said the increase of Arab oil production, beginning in De- cember, would not start show- ing up here until February and March because of the time lag involved in shipping Arab oil around Africa to refineries along the Atlantic.
