James Redmond of Cedar Rapids, Democratic candidate for the 13th senatorial district nomination* called Wednesday for an increased role by state legislatures in the provision of governmental services. Speaking at the weekly meeting of the Mt. Vernon-Lisbon Rotary club, Redmond said many of our national governments would fulfill their responsibilities for local needs and concerns. “State government by inaction has abdicated to the federal government the duty to provide local governmental services. As a consequence congress and the President are trying to do too much. They are attempting to meet all unanswered needs whether local or national. “I find it ironic that as our national debt approaches one-half trillion dollars, the Iowa general assembly is confronted with a $100 million dollar surplus.” Marion.

Robert Ray Thursday. Asked if he thought criticism of the President is lair when statistics show that farmers had a tremendously profitable year in 1973, Ray responded sharply: “It was an inept statement, Vinton Grocery Robbed of $300 VINTON — The Fairway grocery store was robbed of $300 cash Wednesday at about 6:30 p.m. 'I'wo men described as well dressed, between 25 and 30 years old, each with slicked long black hair, entered the office of the grocery and took a: bank bag with $300 cash and a number of checks. Irater in the evening the bank bag was found by the highway commission near highway 218 south of Vinton. The cash was missing but the checks were in the bag. Earlier in the evening, two men matching the description were observed at the Me Too grocery. an insulting statement, lf you were feeding cattle right now, you’d he struggling. There is no question about that. “Some cattle feeders are suffering and some are actually: going out of that business. Pork producers are in pretty much the same boat.” Ray said it was true that grain farmers have been doing well but that this was not true of beef or hog farmers. Asked, if he felt Nixon should have been more specific! instead of blanketing in all farmers with his statement, Ray said politicians tend to “categorize” when asked general questions. There is no way to categorize ones thoughts about youth, he said for example, yet when someone is asked about youth, the tendency is to blanket everything in whatever reply is made even though it couldn’t possibly mean that all young men and women are alike. Pressed about fairness of crit-j icism of Nixon for his statement about farmers, the governor did some sidestepping before concluding, “There’s no use beating a dead horse to death.” “Is Nixon a dead horse?” he1 was asked. “Oh, no,” Ray smiled. On another subject Ray was questioned closely whether or not he plans to make a personal financial disclosure as a candidate for a fourth term iii the 1974 campaign. He said he plans to work out some details along that line with his campaign manager when he gets a chance to talk about the campaign. He said that time probably wouldn’t come until the legislature adjourns.
