Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa On Iowa Campaign Trail Feld Lashes Out At Postal Service Michael J. Feld, a Republican candidate for the nomination for Second district congress, speak- ing at candidate's night in del wein Tuesday, said "The postal service should be returned to congressional control.

Jensen Asks Public Energy Corporation Martin Jensen, candidate for the Democratic nomination for Second district congressman, said Tuesday "it would make far more sense to establish a government-owned energy cor- poration than it does to lavishly support the oil companies with huge tax loopholes. "The major oil companies have used these loopholes, not to develop domestic supplies and build refinery capacity in the United States, but, rather, have focused their efforts on opening up oil fields in the Mid- dle East, Australia, Venezuela, Africa and Jensen said. "These foreign developments have been financed with money derived from U.S. tax loopholes, to the tune of some billion per year on the average since 1960. i "Every time opponents of thesa tax breaks try to close them, the petroleum executives say .they need the money to de- velop new oil fields and build new refineries. "A government-owned energy corporation would also help in- sure that energy sources on public lands would be developed in ways consistent with the prin- ciples of ecology and sound land Jensen conclud- ed. Jensen spoke to members of the Cedar Rapids CAP council of the United Auto Workers Tuesday night.
