Hall & Co., Inc. 400 Iowa Theatre Bldg.    Phone    365-7515 $23 Million in Viet Bonuses Paid By Harrison Weber DES MOINES (ICfi5A) -Over $23 million has already been paid in Vietnam bonuses to Iowans. Hay J. Kauffman, executive secretary of the Icava bonus board, reports checks have been issued to 66.565 of the 92,359 applicants. The bonuses paid have averaged $351.89. In 1973, the legislature appropriated $28 miHlion for bonuses to veterans of the Vietnam conflict; this was supplemented with a 83 million appropriation duri/ng the 1974 general assembly. I f applications dwindle, Kauffman believes the. $31 million appropriation will be Motorist Fined $300 For Drunk Driving TOLEDO—DruTel Lynn Duha-chck, 25, Grenville, 111., formerly of Tama, was fined $300 and costs by Judge James ll. Carter when he pled guilty in Tama count;; district court to drunk driving. His driver's license was suspended for 120 days. Duhachek was arrested April 13 by a state trooper on highway 30 a half mile west of Toledo afbir his car was seen weaving back and forth across the center line to the shoulder four times* the trooper said. sufficient to process and pay all of the claims. Rut claims are still coming in sporadically, anywhere from 60 to 160 a week. 661 Beneficiaries Veterans have until June 30, 1977, to apply for the Vietnam bonuses. Claims have been paid to 65,504 living applicants and to 661 beneficiaries. The bonus board has disallowed claims to 1,572 living veterans and to the beneficiaries of 19 veterans. Reasons for rejecting the claims vary. For example, those in service between July I, 1958, and Aug. 4, 1964, are eligible only for Vietnam area service at the rate of $17.50 a month. Many of the applications denied, Kauffman related, have been turned down because the person did not have any Vietnam service; none of the other service during this time period is compensiblc. Applications Denied People who were in military service from Aug. 5. 1964, to June 30, 1973, are eligible for $17.50 a month for Vietnam area service and $12.50 a month for other service, up to a maximum of $500. Between Aug. 5, 1964, and June 30, 1973, a veteran who did not serve in Vietnam is entitled to $12.50 a month, up to a maximum of $300. “The board has also denied quite a few applications because the person received a bad discharge, not with honor,” Kauffman reported. Another reason for some claims being rejected, Kauffman noted, is because the person did not serve a minimum of 120 days on active duty. “A number of applicants have bo- been turned down cause the individual was on active duty for training purposes only. They served for six months and then went back on reserve status,” Kauffman said. Also, if a person received a Vietnam bonus in another state, that individual is not eligible to receive a bonus from Iowa. Hearing Asked on Drunk Driving Count TOLEDO — Ix^wis It.

Rep. John Culver, the Democrat running for the senate, said he plans no personal financial contributions to his campaign. His Republican opponent, David Stanley, Muscatine, said he and his family will donate the maximum legal amount of $35,000. The 1972 Federal Campaign Financing act prohibits candidates for the U.S. senate to contribute more than $35,000 to the campaign. In the gubernatorial race, Democrat James Schaben, Dunlap, contributed directly to his primary campaign and reportedly will contribute in the general election. Republican Gov. Robert Ray reportedly, plans no personal contributions to his reelection campaign. Schaben and Ray both opposed putting a ceiling on how much a candidate can spend on his own campaign. A special study committee in the Iowa legislature is considering a proposal to put limits on personal campaign spending, along with other possible campaign reforms. The chairman of the committee, State Sen. Willard Hansen of Cedar Falls, contends there should be a personal spending limit. fore Magistrate John Felts and was released on personal recognizance.
