(ITA) today asked the Democratic party in the state to support retention of the single factor state corpora- tion income tax in the party's 3974 platform. In remarks at the party plat- form committee hearing here, M. 0. Grummert, ITA director of education and information, said a three-factor formula would cut the tax of many out- of state corporations without factories in Iowa, who contrib- ute little if anything to this state's economy, while increas- ing it on the firm with factories and employes in Iowa. Grummert said a tax law wording change made three years ago resulted in a substan- tial amount of tax revenue being collected for the first time from out-of-state manufacturers who sell in Iowa but who have little, if any, plant and payroll in this state. He asserted a switch now from the single-factor to a three-factor formula would ac- tually reduce the tax on cor- porations such as those which use Iowa as a place to sell their products, often in competition with Iowa-made goods. vt-stigation at 2120 Ninth street SW. j a.m. Saturday.

Case, Cedar Falls, a Republican can- didate for congress in Iowa's Third district, insisted here Fri- day night that government at- tempts to control the economy are wrong in a free society and only lead to higher prices in the long run. Speaking at a meeting spon- sored by the Wright County Re- publican Central committee, Case said past experience lias demonstrated "pent-up inflation bursts at the first opportunity" when government wage and price controls are initiated. "If we were to sum up what we have learned from the long history of wage and price con- trols in this country and in many others around the world, we would have to conclude that the only thing we learn from history is that we do not learn from history." Morfin: To Form Rape Task Force "Women who are threatened with rape usually succumb, sel- dom scream, rarely report it, and almost never see their as- sailants convicted." That quotation was repealed by Bill Martin, candidate for Ihe Democratic nomination f o r county attorney, at a coffee given by Mrs. Ed Burrcll, 212 Twenty-first avenue SW, on Fri- day. Martin said he would enlist the support of law enforcement agencies to form a rape task force which he said should in- clude policewomen. Also, Mar- tin said the county attorney's of- fice should strive to place on its staff a woman In prosecute criminal cases. He said it is a known fact thai the presence of women in Ihc courtroom either as judge, pro- secuting or defense lawyer, brings more decorum and seriousness to sex-related cases.
