A funeral director must be genuinely concerned... and then demonstrate this concern by providing the finest and most complete assistance he can. At least this is the way Stan Lawrence looks at it, and families served here seem to agree that it's the right way.

Burial: Czech National. —U.S. Trucks— (Continued from Page I.) the truckers consider “minimum acceptable demands.” In general, the demands in-1 valve the supply and price of truck fuel, freight rates, driver safety standards and federal and state regulations under which truckers operate. Guard on Duty The national guard was on duty in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania to keep order and prevent, the .shootings, rock throwings and lire slashings that have marked the wide spread tie-up, which began last Thursday. One trucker was killed. Guardsmen were on standby alert in Connecticut, Kentucky and New Hampshire. The National Association of Food Chains said in Washington that most food stores have! enough meat and produce to supply normal consumer demand Shortages by Weekend By this weekend, significant food shortages are expected to develop around the country, and there’s already evidence that shoppers are buying big supplies of groceries as a precaution a move that will only hasten the shortages. The American Meat Institute reported slaughter was down sharply because of the truckers’ action. A spokesman said 19 percent fewer cattle were killed Monday than one week ago and hog slaughter was down 39 percent from last week. Eleven major Midwest markets Tuesday reported receipts of only 16,3(K) “hogs — 32,000 less than a week ago. Chicken production was also threatened, and the National Broiler    Council said 35 percent of all    U.S. broiler processing plants    would not open their doors    Tuesday. Twice that number would be affected by Wednesday if the truckers’ action continued. n ^ EARS AGO — Adolf Hitler was reported to have dismissed 47 generals as a result of the increasingly serious German reverses on the Russian front, The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., Feb. Ii, 1974 —Iowa Trucks— (Continued from Rage I.) breaking and fabricating division wouldn’t report Tuesday because of the strike. At Walcott Monday afternoon, several trucks were escorted from the lowa-l-80 truck stop after drivers were reportedly threatened by other truckers. Iowa highway patrolmen and Scott county sheriff’s deputies escorted the trucks to the Illinois state line. No trouble was reported. The Walcott station reportedly was one of the last in Eastern Iowa to remain open during the | strike However, it was reported to have also stopped selling diesel fuel at the request of independent truckers. Two carloads of independent truckers from Cedar Rapids Tuesday noon began picketing the Coralville Pipe Line Co. facilities. The firm is a major petroleum supplier. Highway patrolmen and local police officers stood by. Ray Mahoney of 393 Seventeenth street SE. Cedar Rapids, said, “We art* strictly nonviolent here. But as we tell truckers coming in, we cannot guarantee their safety anywhere else. ' Impact Varies On East Iowa Firms, Stores The effect of the independent truckers’ strike was varied Tuesday in Eastern Iowa. For example, Camcar Screw and Manufacturing Co. of ficials in Decorah said the firm received word Tuesday that its raw material supply will be cut off. “A Few Days ’ The firm has enough wire to keep going “a few days,” but officials said they expect the strike to be settled before then. At Deco Co. in Decorah, officials reported no curtailment in operations, but shipments by company trucks have been discontinued. Assistant Manager Larry Dwyer said that to avoid trouble for drivers and trucks, the firm converted to common carrier Tuesday. “II the strike continues the impact will he felt by companies like ours iii one swill blow and we will have to suspend operations.” In Manchester, Arnold Stone, superintendent of Henderson Manufacturing Co., said, “There is very little coming in and nothing going out.” Layoffs are possible, he said, if the strike lasts over two weeks. The firm currently is operating at full capacity. The strike was not affecting the Ethyl Corp. in Manchester “in any way." Most industry officials agreed that their firms will be hurting if the strike continues more than 30 days. Food Situation The Decorah Creamery Co reported its trucks were loaded with cheese Tuesday morning, but the cheese will be taken to a Cresco warehouse. Milk is still coming in and cheese is being processed. Groceries reported supplies on hand for two weeks or so in Decorah, while Anamosa groceries reported they are all right until Monday. Grocers agreed that meat and fresh produce will he affected first. About two days’ supply of produce are already on hand. The strike was having an immediate impact on poultry, with shortages reported developing in that area.Many chickens arc shipped in from the south. Anamosa’s largest restaurant reported it was having difficulty getting chickens and a 1.500-pound meat order also was in doubt. One Decorah beer distributor said he had not received a shipment for a week, but that there were still enough supplies in his warehouse for this week. Quits in Disgust GREENSBURG, Pa.
