Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 9, 1965, Mason City, Iowa FOCUS on North Iowa session ROBERT RIGLER Teacher EDITORS is the first of two dol ing with the observations of four North lowans who were members of the recently con clucVtd Iowa Generar Assem V By CHARLES W North Iowa NewsDirector Words dike disappointing progressive and responsible are used by two North Iowa state senators to a describe their reactions to the 61st General Assembly which completed a 145day marathon session Friday As you might expectthe sen atorusing the words disap pointing and horrifying is a Republican and the solon who describes the session as pro gressive and responsible is a Democrat The Republican senator in question is Robert Rigler New Hampton who guided the GOP progressive minority in the upper chamber The Democrat is John Chub Buren Forest City who repre sented Winnebago and Hancock counties in his first term as a senator From the reactions of the two men you get the feeling they werent even in the same city let alone the same legislative chamber for the duration of the session For example Rigler serving his third term in the Senate called the 61st General Assem bly the worst in which I have served and added he was dis appointed in the thing for many reasons Buren on the other hand called the session very progres sive and said it brought the state of Iowa into the 20th cen tury Worst thing about the last session Rigler said is that it planted a time bomb for the 62nd General Assembly By this he continued he means the last session has a to mil lion windfall included in its budget which wont be available to the 62nd General Assembly Rigler also charged that the last session seriously threat ened the industrial climate in Iowa by its attitude on some legislation This climate would have been in even worse shape if the legislature had passed Gov Harold Hughes rightto work proposal Rigler continued Rigler says his constituents are horrified by the tax pro gram of the majority party The latest session increased the nuisance taxes without pro viding any property tax relief Rigler adds In fact the property tax bur den will be increased rather than relieved he says

Army paratroopers have ranged farth er afield in seeking contact with the Communists So far the ac tion has been on a relatively small scale The decision to commit US fighting units as fire brigades to help the South Vietnamese raises the possibility that Marines and paratroopers may become involved in major ac tion in battalion strength and perhaps larger The new development could present a potentially sticky problem in relations between US and Vietnamese officers Pentagon officials told a re porter they did not know at this lime whether for example the US Marine battalion sent to reinforce South Vietnamese troops would be under the com mand of a South Vietnamese officer if that officer on the scene outranked the American battalion commander The feeling was that ground rules would have to be nailed down before such operations take place lest friction occur between the Americans and the South Vietnamese in the field King of Morocco names a Cabinet RABAT Morocco Hassan II
