These provisions would remove the current prohi- bitions agajnst sodomy and adultery and would legalize the private viewing of pornography by adults. "As a citizen of the Second congressional district of Iowa and a resident of Feld said, "my experience in government both in Iowa and in Washington reveals that lowans will never accept the encourage- ment of permissiveness by con- doning loose morals and peep shows." Feld called upon all con- cerned citizens to write their .respective state legislators, reg- istering their opposition to this proposed legislation. 10 YEARS AGO The Cincin- nati school board reported ap- proximately 35 percent absen- teeism as Negroes staged a one- day boycott of public schools in protest of alleged segregation.
