But federal representatives who met in Des Moines with state and city officials Tuesday were unable to say either how much money fowa will get in 1975, or how much the state got this year. "We can Identify billion for Iowa from nine federal agencies" for fiscal 1975, said Elmer Smith, Kansas City, re gional director of the Depart- ment of Housing and Urban Development. But that is not the entir amount, he stressed. President Nixon's bi lion asking is up from the fisca 1974 budget of ?274 billion. Max Milo Mills, the forme Iowa state senator who is re gional director of the Depart ment of Health, Education anc Welfare, believes Iowa will be "getting back its fair share" c money its residents paid i: taxes.

Iowa is affluent and has always been a "donor" state. "It is a prosperous state that has paic in more than it got Tyson said. "We surely don'l get back as much as we put in." The state receives consider- ably more money under some federal programs than under others, Mills explained. Although Iowa ranks 25th in population among the 50 states, Mills said it is fourth in funding of agriculture programs.

Gregory Mokes WASHINGTON (AP) Fed oral Energy Chief William Sim on may have hurt his chances o being named next secretary o the treasury when he ciilicaei statements by the Shah of Iran, well-placed sources say. Simon, who also is deputy sec- retary of the treasury, lias been considered one of two leading candidates to succeed Treasury Secretary Shultz. But treasury sources who have been friendly to the idea of Simon becoming the next secretary say he made a major mistake, on Monday when he denounced as "irresponsible and reckless" statements by the Shah of Iran. The remark by Ihe shah that aroused Simon's re that the U.S. is import- ing as much oil now as before ihe Arab oil boycott. Close Friend The criticism of the shah had mtential for considerable em- larrassmcnt for the U.S., be- cause the shah has been a close riend and Iran has continued as major supplier of U.S. oil dur- ing the oil embargo by the Arab countries. Nixon felt obliged to contra- dict Simon at his hews confer- ence Monday night, saying ''I would not say that the shah was irresponsible and reckless." He said the Iranian leader prob- ably was using different figures than Simon's office. However, Ihe prime minister ol Iran said Tuesday the shah's information came mainly from U.S. sources, including' Simon limself. Simon "m u s I be talking lu'ough his said Prime Minister Amir Abass lloveida, n an interview. A top Simon aide, Gerald Par- sky, said Simon stands by his itatement regarding the shah's remarks. He said there was the suggestion in what the sliah had :aid that petroleum was being muggled into Ihe U.S. "Not Personal" That idea, Parsky said, is what Simon referred to as be- ing reckless and irresponsible.

"Yve don't Jiave friends in the world Dial we can afford lo insult a good friem! like the one source said. The source noted that the post of treasury secretary has lie- come exceptionally powerful and sensitive under Shultz, with i n t e r n a lional responsibilities ranging from trade negotiations lo international monetary re- form. He said the While House would likely not want lo have someone as secretary who could suddenly upscl delicate nego- tiations with an undiplomatic remark, such as his statement regarding the shah.
