Prospects Are “Unlimited” Bv diaries Roberts DES MOINES (AP)— The potential for selling Iowa-made products in eastern Europe* and Russia is “unlimited, if the products are available." says an official of the Iowa Development Commission Eight Iowans who went to that part of the world to sell Iowa manufactured goods believe they already sparked agreements for more than $8 million in trade in the next year. And that’s a conservative estimate,’’ Dean Arbuckle, a foreign trade specialist of the commission, said Monday. Arbuckle returned Saturday from the two-week journey to Austria. Bulgaria, the Soviet Union and Rumania. Some of the mission members stayed in western Europe to make other business contacts and have not returned yet. said Arbuckle Sale Breakdown He reported members of the mission believe it can get $726,870 from Austrian businesses. $14 million from Bulgaria a. $844).(XX) from Rumania and $5 I million from Russia Ruling Made on Police Pensions DES MOINES IAP) - Pill-icemen and fire fighters who contributed to pension funds prior to a new law in 1973 setting up a new program no longer have to pay into the older funds, according to an attorney general’s opinion issued Monday. Rep Dennis Freeman <R-Storm Lake) asked for the opinion He said Storm Igike city officials set up a pension fund around 1958 under the law in force at that time. Until a new fund was established last Jan. I. police and fire fighters had contributed $641.(XXI Freeman wanted to know if the money could be transferred to the new fund or must Ik* returned to the city workers who built it Kelly said he believes the $84).(XX) can be transferred to the new fund. One trade area untouched by the Iowans was agricultural commodities. Arbuckle said the mission was to sell only manufactured products. The mission to Moscow and other east Europe points constituted “a whole new ball game" for the Iowans, said Arbuckle, because the Midwesterners were dealing with officials “in a controlled society." except in Austria, which is a free society.
