The live cannon-firing was part of a display of Civil War vintage firepower. Two teams of Civil War buffs from Illinois showed the accuracy of the cannons by knocking over barrels about IOO yards away. Hopkinton^ Annual Civil War Days AL SCHROEDER, 46, Iowa City, represented tho South as he led the Hopkinton Cub Scout troop in the third annual Hopkinton Civil War Days parade Saturday. The Civil War Days celebration is held to commemorate a Civil War monument in Hopkinton believed to be the first in the nation erected by public subscription. A larger crowd has come each successive year that the Delaware County Historical Society has sponsored the event. Republicans Wrestle Plan For Balanced Delegation Harrison Weber By Harrison Weber DES MOINES - (IDPA) -Mary Louise Smith of Des Moines, co-chairman of the Republican national committee, will play an important role in determining guideUnes for the states in selecting delegates to the GOD national convention in 1976. Besides being co-chairman of the national committee, she is also a co-vice-chairman of a blue-ribbon committee established to broaden the base of the Republican party; this committee is known as the Rule 29 committee, after the convention rule that created it. The purpose of the Rule 29 committee, Mrs. Smith explained, “is to take a look at the structure of our party and at our rules that say we shall be an open party, broadly based and with equal opportunity for people of all ages, sex, and minority groups.” The Des Moines housewife is adamantly opposed to any type of a quota system “like the Democrats had through their McGovern commission.” Formulate Report “Somehow,” she stressed, ‘we must find a way to get states to voluntarily open the party doors wider to women, i young people, the elderly and | t h e ethnic and minority groups.” There are approximately 50 members on the national Rule 29 committee which has been divided into five subcommittees. All of the subcommittees have had hearings in various locations in conjunction with regional conferences and in Washington, D. C. The five subcommittees will make their recommendations to the full committee at a meeting in St. Louis on June 15-16 and the committee will then begin the process of writing a preliminary report which must be presented to the Republican national committee by June 30. A final report must be submitted to the national committee no later than Jan. I of 1975 and the national committee must act upon the final recommendations within 90 days after receiving the report. Need Guidelines One of the “sticky” problems facing the Rule 29 committee is a rule adopted by the 1972 convention in Miami Beach which says that each state shall “endeavor” to have equal representation of men and women in its delegation to the 1976 national convention. Both Mary Louise Smith and Iowa Republican state chairman John McDonald are members of the subcommittee wrestling with this particular rule. “Our problem,” Mrs. Smith observed, “is defining what endeavor means. It doesn’t say must, it says endeavor. We must come up with some guidelines that will assist states in avoiding challenges. “No one wants quotas and this is the nearest we come to anything resembling a quota. “If a state, for example, had a delegation comprised of 70 percent men and 30 percent women, the delegation might face a challenge. What Rule 29 is going to have to do is come up with guidelines, like a laundry list, showing that the state has done these things and has made an effort; otherwise, we could have challenges galore,” Mrs. Smith said. “The rule doesn’t say a state must have 50 percent men and 50 percent women, it says you must endeavor to have equal representation; that’s the problem we’re faced with in devising guidelines,” she added.

Ray Sets Net Worth at $237,468 DES MOINES (AP) - Gov. Robert Ray disclosed Monday that he has total assets of $249,738 and liabilities of $12,-270. Ray, who ended speculation as to Whether he would disclose his financial worth, released the financial document at his morning news conference. Annual Reports “While I hold this office, I intend to file statements annually which will reflect my financial condition at the end of each year, the income received, and the taxes paid during that year,” Ray said. Candidates for Democratic nomination for governor in Tuesday’s primary election had urged Ray to make the disclosure. Ray is unopposed for the Republican nomination and will be a candidate in the November general election for an unprec-idented fourth term as governor—the first four-year term under a recent constitutional amendment. 1973 Income The disclosure revealed Ray had a total income in 1973 of $43,962 and paid $1,671 in state income tax and $9,569 in federal income tax. Ray’s total income included $37,292 in salary, $6,168 interest, $276 in dividends and $226 in other income. It did not include $5,000 in state expense allowances for his office. The balance sheet listed real estate holdings of $86,333, furniture and two cars valued at $17,875, bonds valued at $46,635, a checking account balance of $1,313 and savings accounts totaling $7,666. Previous Tax Also listed were life insurance valued at $24,772, stock valued at $9,316, and other assets—including 75 percent interest in Emmet Radio Corp., Estherville, of $55,828. The disclosure included income received and taxes paid for each of the five years Ray has served as governor. It showed that in 1972 Ray paid $7,387 federal income tax and $1,227 state income tax on a total income of $38,543; in 1971 $6,815 federal and $1,301 state on income of $35,943; 1970 $5,787 federal and $886 state on income of $32,804; and 1969 $5,-568 federal and $751 state on $29,569. pleased that Iowa’s delegation to the last GOF national convention was the most representative of a state’s population make-up of any of the delegations. Self-Analysis Nine of Iowa’s 22 delegates were women, five were under 25, and one was black. She emphasized that the Rule 29 committee does not address itself at all to the apportionment of delegations. That has been set, and can’t be changed. As part of self-analysis being undertaken by the Republican party, each state has a Rule 29 committee charged with the responsibility of making reform recommendations. Lt. Gov. Arthur Neu is chairman of the Iowa Rule 29 committee and Mrs. Smith feels the committee is doing an “outstanding job” under Neu’s leadership. “They have approached the problem very thoughtfully; the Iowa committee is almost a showcase,” she declared. Some of the questions being considered by the Iowa Rule 29 committee include: Should the Republican state central committee be expanded in size? How should the Republican state central committee “endeavor” to send a balanced delegation to the 1976 GOP national convention? % Should proportional representation, according to presidential candidate preferences, be used in 1976 in selecting delegates to county and state conventions?
