Feld Criticizes Bill Revising Criminal Code OELWEIN - Speaking before the Rotary club in Oelwein Mon day, Michael J. Feld, Republi can candidate for the nomina tion for the Second district eon gressional seat, stated that the vast majority of Iowans are opposed to turning the Hawkeye state into a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

These provisions would remove the current prohibitions against sodomy and adultery and would legalize the private viewing of pornography by adults. “As a citizen of the Second congressional district of Iowa and a resident of Oelwein,” Feld said, ‘‘my experience in government both in Iowa and in Washington reveals that Iowans will never accept the encouragement of permissiveness by condoning loose morals and peep shows.” Feld called upon all concerned citizens to write their ^respective state legislators, registering their opposition to this proposed legislation.
