   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., April 29. 1974  Tama Meat Packing Named in $444,500 Suit Ra on w ! -g.  Item Veto Hinges  Tax Relief  TOLEDO — A suit asking damages of $444,500 has been filed in Tama county district court against Tama Meat Packing Corp. of Tama by Weinstein International Corp., an importer and exporter of meat and poultry products, of Minneapolis. Breach of contract is claimed in the action.  In its petition, Weinstein says it and Tama Meat Packing Corp. entered into a contract in June 1972 whereby the meat packing plant agreed to sell to Weinstein between 35.000 and 40.000 pounds of what is commonly known as mountain chain for 30 cents per pound every month from July 1972 through June 1973 with a renewal option.  Mountain chain is described by Weinstein as branch-like appendages or tripe from older cattle, sometimes discarded by meat packers. Weinstein president, Ham’ Weinstein, says he visited the Tama plant and then fur  nished on two occasions an experienced employe to demonstrate to the Tama corporation the USDA-a p p r o v e d method of preparing mountain chain for export.  Resale Pact  Weinstein says it relied on the contract with the Tama firm and contracted to resell the mountain chain at 53 cents per pound to Marubeni II DA (America) Inc., of Chicago, who would resell it to sub-customers in Japan.  Weinstein alleges that Tama Meat Packing Corp. failed to deliver any of the mountain chain, and because the product can only be obtained from older, larger animals,  its availability is limited and it cannot be replaced from another source of supply.  The plaintiff claims that because of defendant’s failure to honor the contract and option, Weinstein was unable to honor its resale agreement with Marubeni, resulting in loss of considerable business and profit.  Charge Fraud  The petition says that a few months after the contract date, Tama Meat Packing Corp. told Weinstein that the USDA had disapproved of the method of production and between August 1972 and the present time told the plaintiff  Legislative Notes by Frank Nye  Accidents in Iowa Take Three Lives  By the Associated Press  Three persons died in Iowa traffic accidents during the weekend, including a Dubuque man who was killed in his front yard.

'Logorrhea', It You Don't Know Meaning, Look It Up  DES MOINES — State Sen. Lucas DeKoster iR-Hull) bruoght his senate appropriations committee to heel during a recent noisy meeting.  “Let’s stop the logorrhea.” said DeKoster as he rapped the committee to order, “and if you don’t know what that means, go look it up.”  I looked it up. Here s what the dictionary says:  “Logorrhea — pathologically excessive and often incoherent talkativeness.”  □ □ □  Nothing for Norpel  THEY were arguing an appropriations bill in the house when Rep. Richard Norpel (D-Bellevue) got the floor to say:  “There's nothing in this bill for my district. Next year the Democrats will be in control here and Wyckoff will be chairman of the appropriations committee and 1 11 get what I want.”  “Wyckoff” is Rep. Russell Wyckoff (D-Vinton).  the USDA prohibited production of mountain chain. Weinstein claims the defendant failed to comply with USDA requirements to produce the product for plaintiff.  Weinstein charges that the defendant has willfully, with intent to defraud, produced and sold mountain chain to potential sub - customers of Marubeni and indirect customers of Weinstein.  In Division I of the petition, Weinstein asks that Tama Meat Packing be required to perform the contract and option: that the defendant be enjoined from selling mountain chain unless it has first fulfilled its monthly contrac-tural obligation with Weinstein and defendant pay costs of action. Judgment for $60,-000 is asked on this count for compensatory damages for loss of profits and good will.  In Division ll, Weinstein asks, if the contract and option are not specifically enforced, $134,500 compensatory damages for breach of contract plus the $60,000 for loss of profits and good will. An additional $100,000 is asked on grounds that the Tama firm has tortiously interfered with Weinstein's contract relations by selling mountain chain to resale customers of Marubeni without first having complied with the terms of the contract with the plaintiff.  In addition to compensatory damages, Weinstein asks $100,000 punitive damages because of acts of the defendant’s firm’s officers, agents and employes which were “malicious, willful, tortious and committed with reckless indifference” to the rights of the plaintiff.  By Frank Nye  DES MOINES - Gov. Robert ; Ray must first determine how state spending bills mesh with a new’ tax relief package before knowing whether he’ll have to use his item veto pen this session. he said Monday.  “I’m pleased about the sales tax repeal,” Ray told his news conference, “and the other two items (in the tax relief package) I fin d  have merit.  Future Concern  Gov.  Robert  Ray  “But I don t know yet how ex-; j n g  ant j available revenue he penditures and appropriations would reluctantly do so. will fit together and it is a mat ter of concern for the future.  islators say this continuing loss will leave the state with a treasury balance of less than $9 million in three to four veals and even less if the economic growth rate — normally 5.8 percent annually but running above 20 percent this year — should fall.  Ray is concerned about this, saying the state needs a larger balance to keep things on an even keel. An estimated surplus some appropriation items to  0 f  up  to $200 million is predict-keep what he considers a rea-  e( j f or  j une  30 this year, which earnable balance between spend- j s w hy the legislature has eased  “We do have more revenue now’ that we projected at the time we made the budget and I hope it wouldn’t be necessary to item veto anything.”  However, the governor added. if he found it necessary to veto  Demo Chief: Ray Administration Has Taken ’Holiday from History'  The tax relief package resulted from a conference committee’s compromise last Friday of house and senate differences over the governor’s recommendation that the state’s 3 percent sales tax he repealed on food and prescription drugs.  Both house and senate added other items to be exempted and the committee, headed bv Sen. Ralph McCartney (R-Charles City) and Rep. Norman Roorda (R- Monroe) eliminated some of these and added still others in its effort to get a bill that can win approval of both chambers  up on spending this session.  If it became necessary for Ray to use his item veto, where would he use it?  Asked specifically if he might veto some items in a $7,750 million appropriation bill for conservation projects. Ray declined to speculate, saying he approaches every bill with the idea he can sign it.
