and discussed a wide range of issues. The group asked that winter Daylight Saving time be reviewed; that the 60 percent bond issue requirement be re
tained; and that a more effective means of transporting school students be investigated.
The caucus also said the state should gel out of the liquor business; called for some sort of state appeals board that would provide recourse to citizens regarding governmental regulations; and said Republicans should review the growing bureaucracy in government.
At the Tenth precinct at Garfield school, the nine persons present urged grass roots Republicans to work hard in the coming campaign to regain county offices.
John Randall, jr., called on
all Republican candidates to work closely with the party. Precinct Chairman Bob Al-lendcr said the “major problem is in onr own party.
“A lot of Republicans have approached the point where they don’t want to help or contribute to the party. And there is no way you can win with that attitude.”
Turnouts at Washington high school and Arthur school were larger than two years ago. Mrs. Palmer said the change in precinct boundaries was confusing to some Republicans, particularly in the Marion and northeast Cedar Rapids areas.
One of the concerns expressed
at the Garfield caucus was the vacancies on the county Republican central committee. Mrs. Palmer said there are still 22 unfilled seats on the central committee out of the total of 132. She said there were 31 vacancies when she became county chairman in January.
A wide range of other subjects were discussed by the Republicans, including taxation; the need for noise pollution controls; reduction of the number of counties in Iowa; and protective measures for the family farm.
Republicans made no endorsements in the party’s three primary races—for governor, Second district congressman and senate district 13.

Maybe South actually did this. It was hard for us to tell because at trick two he played his king of hearts and at trick three led a heart toward dummy and finessed the jack. East took his queen and led the suit back. This gave South exactly two trump tricks in and since there was only one trump each left in his hand and dummy he could only come to four trump tricks and that wasn’t quite enough.
South could have scored five trump tricks if he had finessed the jack the right way, but he had a better way to play them. I He should just cash the ace and king and side-suit high cards. Then a cross ruff would bring-in enough tricks for the slam. East could ruff in with his queen of trumps any time he wished, but^ that would be the only trick the" defense could win.
