Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 19, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., Nov. '.9. 1971 Residents Raise Funds for Ambulance Gazette Pholo by Larry Tan Firemen Battle Blaze in Silo Marion firemen spray water on the remnants of a large silo on the Weaver WHwer farm four miles north of the city near the Tenth street road. The silo was toppled Monday noon after firemen were unable to extinguish a series of small blazes burning in the contents. The fires apparently ignit- ed several weeks ago by spontaneous combustion, firemen said. Several thousand gallons of water were poured into the silo. Last Saturday, sparks from the silo set a large barn adjacent to it on fire, causing minor roof damage. The silo burst apart as it hit the ground Monday and firemen kept the blaze which erupted under control. Trucks from both the Marion and Alburnett fire departments were on the scene. Family Spat Stirs Still-Vital GOP By Arnold B. Sawislak WASHINGTON (DPI) Anyone who thinks the ar- gument between the Republican left and right that started after the 1974 elections is just a family spat at the funeral ought to take another look at the corpse. 'Taint dead. What happened to the Republican party Nov. 5 did not require the services of an undertaker. While the loss of 40-plus house seats may have justified calling the Democra- tic victory a landslide, the Republicans came out of the elections with fewer losses in tlie senate and slatehouses than many independent ob- servers (and many Repub- licans) expected. Johnson Board To Seek Pact For New Offices IOWA CITY The Johnson county board of supervisors Monday unanimously voted to attempt to reach an agree- ment with federal authorities, which would allow moving of major county offices into the federal building here. The supervisors wish to move county zoning offices, the engineering department and the supervisors' offices from their present location at the courthouse, across the street into the new federal building. Communications with fed- eral authorities have suggest- ed a rental price of per square foot, which would allow the county some square feet of office space for an annual rental in excess of The supervisors have been seeking additional office space for over a year-and-a-half. If the move to the federal build- ing is allowed, the county probate office would move into offices presently occupied at the courthouse by the motor vehicle department. The motor vehicle depart- ment, in turn, would take over space prcsenlly occupied by the county assessor's office and probate departments. By winning some new gover- norships, especially Ohio, and by holding slatehouses and senate seats where they were said lo he in deep trouble Michigan, Kansas, New York, for three the GOP showed il remains a vital force in American politics. But overriding (he mid-term election results is the fact that Ihe Republican parly holds the presidency. In lerms of sur- vival, occupancy of the White House can he the factor that wipes out all the billcr losses of 1974 and provides the oppor- tunity to rebuild toward victory in 1976. The key is Gerald Ford's conduct of Ihe presidency, and that is what Republican con- servatives, and liberals have been arguing about since the dawn of Nov. (i. Despite a congressional record that placed him lo the right of center in the GOP, Ford has nol positioned him- self firmly in cither ideological camp as President, and now both sides are inlerpreling the elcclion returns in a way thai they hope will give him a shove in their direction. Extended Appeal The liberal (self-described Republican Ripon Society issued an analysis of the election returns thai concluded Ihe GOP "will conlinue lo shrivel if ils members insist upon nominal- ing candidates whose appeal does not extend beyond the hard-core rank and file" of the parly. "It has long been manifest that Republicans have to nominate moderates or progressives if they want to win stalewide office in the more populous states." a Kipon statement said. As backup for its conclusion, the group said of Ihe 70 members of Ihe archcorihcrva- tive Republican house 'Steer- ing Committee' lost Nov. 5, while "only one of the members of the moderate Republican 'Wednesday Group' failed in re-election bids." Ripon adds: "To blame the large losses of the GOP on Watergate alone obscures the fact that the victims of Water- gate tended to be those Congressmen who made no ef- fort to broaden the base of their constituency." Conservative Themes The conservative response to the election is In deny that it was a liberal victory. Patrick Buchanan, former speech- writer in the Nixon While House and a staunch conserva- Tracy Marie Droz Dies; Services Thursday WELLMAN Tracy Marie DriK, 74, died Monday at the Jefferson county hospital in Fairfield. Born May 2, 1900 in Tindall, Mo., she married Victor Droz in Trenton, Mo. on Dec. 9, 1921. She lived in Cedar Rapids until I960 when, she and her husband moved to Fairfield and then to Wellman where Mrs. Droz resided for the last six years. She was a member of the Calvary Baptist chruch in Cedar Rapids and the Well- man Embroidery club. She is survived by one son, Dr. Jack Drox, Wellman; two grandchildren; and two sis- ters, Nattie Swan, Kansas Cit- y, Kan., and Sadie Barrett, Calif.

McGovern and Gary Hart campaigned in on conservative themes and that "the national trend remains to the right." To Buchanan, the election Ford and other Republican leaders ought to be looking at is 1975, when he said the GOP gave voters "clear and com- pelling reasons" for support- ing it. And, he says, if the Republican party is "ever to forge a new coalition" of Americans opposed to liberal policies and programs "it must rtOt aside the politics of 'con- ciliation, compromise, coop- eration and consensus'." Ripon and Buchanan were making public statements. But the ear they were trying to catch was in the White House.

(UP1) Digging for change at lollbuulhs can be a nuisance, but New Jersey turnpike riders may soon have the convenience of shouting "charge it" when they exit. The turnpike, which claims to be the busiest toll road in the country, issued special credit cards to its own employes to test the new system for six months before extending it to the general public. Employes will present the plastic credit cards to toll collectors as they leave the turnpike. The toll taker will process a toll slip similar to a credit sales slip and will give part of the slip to the mo- torist-employe, the spokesman said. A spokesman said the turn- pike is the nation's first toll road to test credit cards. "It's a research project that has all sorts of possibilities for the future if it proves that vehicles can be processed more quickly and according to the turnpike spokesman. "It just staggers the imagination just as long as you can record the transaction and get the bill to the right place." Turnpike employes tradi- tionally are reimbursed for tolls paid when they are com- muting or while performing official business on the turn- pike, but the experiment will permit the turnpike to deter- mine if such a credit card sys- tem would make it possible to keep track of loll charges. The experiment will he con- ducted at toll plazas in New Brunswick, and in nearby Woodbridgc and Edison, N. J. A spokesman for the AAA auto clubs of New Jersey, which represents of the state's motorists, said he would favor any new concept if it helps drivers. "Credit he said. "Why not? We have credit cards everywhere else as long as it doesn't create any tremendous traffic back up."
