Superintendent Wayne Batterman printing Delores Pedersen accounting Dwight r. Clark publisher emeritus a �3y0imi note to Spiro a. Speak from heart or silence when vice president Spiro Agnew first spoke out in opposition to the militant leftists we applauded the amplification of his voice we said Quot Spiro is our hero Quot making reference to his posture in defense of what he termed the silent majority we took the position that much too much Public to do was being voiced from the Liberal left and that the thinking of the populace was becoming unbalanced. Civil and individual rights advocates were preaching a doctrine which sought to justify violence and Militancy by a hard Core minority and no one was speaking 14 for the quiet majority which was being Hurt. Then Spiro stepped up and spoke in opposition and the pendulum of reason and fairness moved Back toward a rational Center. A a a of late his utterances have bothered us. Where before he seemed to be speaking from his heart now he is funnelling invective indiscriminately lashing out at All who hold viewpoints at variance with his. His hyphenated hell raising and caustic comments no longer Are expressive of common Man concern. Rather he is directing his personal polemics against political enemies in the Hope of narrow Republican party gain rather than As a representative of the Broad general Public. A a a he is doing a disservice by his diatribes of verbal diarrhoea directed with irresponsibility against Public servants whose beliefs differ from his and he obviously is being unfair even to his own conscience when he backs do nothing candidates for the simple reason that they Are republicans. His castigation of two groups youths and liberals Are overdrawn and Are causing divisions in our society. Where at first his stance of defense served to stir reason by All people now he is conducting a Witch Hunt Type offence that is destructive and crushing and could cause a wave of anarchy. And then a counter wave of repression. A a a some noises Are being made within the Republican party to the effect that Spiro Agnew could Well be the gop Standard bearer in the 1976 presidential election. Perhaps this May occur. But we predict that if the Vic president continues on unchecked the free social climate will deteriorate to the Point where democracy will no longer be As we know it now. It will stagnate and fraction Alize and will be replaced by an atmosphere of hatred directly re a fleeting the outlooks and wishes of those in Power we do not suggest that Spiro Agnew be muzzled. Rather we would Hope that he would be Public spirited or silent. Campaign stirs modest interest Waterloo a Veteran us. Rep. Iii.

By Chuck Noland associated press writer the Iowa incumbent Republican state treasurer and the Democrat seeking to unseat him pretty much represent the Basic differences Between the two parties tickets for state offices in the nov. 3 general election. Republican state treasurer Maurice a Baringer 48, is running for his second term on the premises that the Structure of Molt of state government including his office is sound and works Well that republicans Are committed to getting maximum value for every Dollar spent and that he is proud to serve with gov. Robert d. Ray in meeting Iowa a needs with progressive programs while practising sound fiscal management. The challenger state sen. William d. Palmer do Des Moines 35, contends that state government needs to be reorganized and revitalized that rays fiscal policy has been too tight and has placed the state in a critical financial position and that state executive officers including the treasurer should be More widely involved in Iowa a affairs. Sharply divided within that context the two Divide sharply on matters pertaining directly to the treasurers office. A the number one Issue As i see it is whether the office of state treasurer should continue to be elective rather than appointive a says challenger Palmer a trim Dapper Veteran of four years in the Iowa House of representatives and two in the state Senate. Asserting that few iowans know who the state treasurer is a let alone his opponent a Palmer argues that the treasurer should be appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the governor. This he says would assure that the treasurer works More closely with the governor in carrying out his programs. Treasurer Baringer an eight year legislative Veteran who was speaker of the House in 1967-68, argues that an elected treasurer will be More responsive to the wishes of the people. A a Man who has to stand for election is going to be a lot More careful about his Public relations than an appointed official Quot he says. Varied views also Baringer argues the treasurer Secretary of state Secretary of agriculture and auditor who with the governor compose the state executive Council bring a variety of views to the Council As it oversees spending by state agencies. Having the Council members elected Baringer says makes for More responsible executive Council decisions than would be the Case if members wore appointed and could be removed by the governor if they hampered him. The republicans who now compose the executive Council say it performs a vital watchdog role in holding Down nonessential spending by state agencies for such items As equipment travel and remodelling repair and replacement of buildings. Palmer like other democratic challengers says the Council should broaden its functions to include Liaison Between the governor and state agencies and direct involvement in planning and implementing the governors policies. A i think my opponent has set up there run the office Well and run a Good clean shop a says Palmer of Baringer. A but i think his responsibility goes beyond that a a fall of the executive Council members should put Forth More leadership Effort rather than limiting their responsibilities just to their offices a says Palmer. A they should be giving leadership and direction to state helping to implement government and formulate and More College Loans for his part As treasurer Palmer says he would be using the influence of the office and investing Idle state funds a in the Best interests of the state of that includes encouraging Iowa Banks to make More federally guaranteed Loans to College students. A there Are several Hundred students in Iowa who did no to go Back to school this fall because there just Wasny to any Money available a Palmer says. A i think the state treasurer could use some Friendly persuasion to encourage the Banks to meet their social a a there a no better investment you can make than in the educational future of our Young people Quot says Palmer Quot and i think the Best interests of the state dictate that we sacrifice a few percentage Points in interest on some of our rinds to do another trip Down Halls memory Lane by Hal Boyle new York a the human memory is like autumn a season of both recollection and premonition.
