Exports Rise 25% in 1972: Petska Cedar Rapids firms exported about 25 percent more products during 1973 than during 1972, according to a survey released Thursday by the Chamber of Commerce international trade bureau. Exports for 1973 by 50 firms responding to the survey totalled $143,712,800. while 1972 exports totalled only $112,600,000. Total imports to Cedar Rapids firms surveyed totaled $7,155,000. about the same as for 1972, Richard Petska, bureau manager, reported. Petska said the figures indicate the export market for Cedar Rapids manufacturers is definitely growing, as the 25 percent figure outweighed the estimated 8 percent inflation for tile year. The large amount of exports provides more economic stability for the area as normally 12 to 18 months are necessary for a depression to spread from the U.S. to Europe, he said, providing a cushion for the local job market. Petska said the outlook for the 1974 export market is uncertain as domestic demand has increased considerably in light of supply shortages. be estimated by (architect, he said. $30,000 Deficit However, Kazimour did speculate, based on the operations of other similar centers, that the facility would probably show about a $30,000 deficit the first year.

Social Security Income Reports Due by April 15 Pensons who earned over $2,100 and got one or more social security retirement or survivors chocks in 1973 must submit an annual report of their earnings to social security by April 15. James Wood, social .security district manager, said the report shows self-employment income and wages earned last year as well as expected earnings this year. “The report will be used to determine if people were paid the correct amount of social security benefits and to adjust their payments for 1974,” Wood said. Full social security benefits could be paid to eligible people in 1973 if they earned $2,100 or less, he explained. No matter how much they earned for the year, they could be paid full benefits for any month they earned $175 or less land didn’t do substantial work in their own business. For 1974, the figures Increase | to $2,400 for the year and $200 per month. Late filing of the report or failure to file could mean loss of social security benefits,, Wood I said. Persons over 72 in all months of 1973 do not need to make an annual report.

ABA Chief Hits Nixon Stance on Watergate Data MIAMI (AP) — American Bar Assn. President Chesterfield Smith says President Nixon’s refusal to hand over all Watergate evidence to those considering his impeachment amounts to obstruction of justice. “I completely and wholly disagree with Nixon’s contention that dragging out Watergate drags down America,” Smith said. “The American people want wrongdoing uncovered and the wrongdoers punished, no matter how high the office they hold.” In an interview, Smith said the President was on shaky constitutional ground in not releasing all requested documents and tapes. “I don’t feel any evidence is subject to presidential privilege, presidential privacy or even national security.” he said.
