MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY APRIL 3 UOc i Paper Conslm at Two OM a remap success Naden Mowry hopes are dim DES MOINES AP The Iowa Legislature recessed Fri day waiting to see what a SenateHouse conference com mittee mightcome up with in the waj of a permanent reap The houses were at log gerheads over differing ver sions of the formula for distrib uting legislative seats They were involved in a re plaj of an earlier struggle that occurred over a temporary re apportionment plan The conference committee was supposed to work out a compromise between the ver sions advanced by House arid Senate Under the joint rules of the two houses any compromise reached by the conference com mittee must be considered first by the House There was growing pessimism that a plan acceptable to both houses could behammered out by the conference committee I expect this conference committee to report that it cant agree sometime Monday morning said House Majority Floor Leader John Mowry R Marshalltown He declined to speculate on whether another conference committee would be named later But House Speaker Robert Naden RWebster City said If this conference committee cant agree I dont think there will be another one I think this legislature might as well go home and not waete any more of the taxpayers money Conference committee mem bers RMount der BWilliams and OMal ley DDesVMoinesf and Reps Marvin Smith RPaullina Da vid Stanley RMuscatine Floyd Millen RFarmington and Ray mond Eveland DKeliey The two chambers agreed on a Senate formula calling for 47 seats using 1960 population fig ures They disagreed en House ap portionment The Senate first voted for a House of 100 members elected from 100 districts as nearly equal in population as practica ble County lines could be crossed infforming the districts and no more than 10 per ecu deviation would be permitted from the average ize district The House then passed a ver sion calling for 112 representa tives with a possible increase to 115 after 1970 census figures are available The most populous counties containing 50 per cenl of the states population would be guaranteed 50 per cent of the House seats The Senate countered with a House plan calling for 112 mem bers when the measure wouk become effective but cutting badto the original 100 seal plan after1 the 1970 census TheHouse rejected this out right and unanimously The Senate then insisted on Its own version which sent the measure to a conference com mittee The major disagreement was not over the number of repre sentatives but over how their districts would be set up Opponents of the lower cham bers version said it called for some districts twice as large a others On f he inside Editorials Clear Lake news S Mason City news 4714 Latest markets 7 Sports news

calling for a showdown meeting of the worlds Communist parties to thrash out communisms big feud Breaking a sixmonth silence the Kremlin accused the Chi nese of tryingto run the Red bloc to stir political unrestin the Soviet Union to sabotage Premier Khrushchevs policy of peaceful coexistence and to ob tain niclear weapons at any cost The Soviet reply occupied nearly an entire tdition of the Communist party newspaper Pravda In a frontpage edito rial Pravda called Mao Tze tungs regime the main dan ger to the unity of the world Communist movement Pfiavda said the final straw was Tuesday

ing which brings new op portunities and new dangers for the United States and its friends How to exploit what appears to be ah unbridgeible chasm be tween Moscow and Peking was a major concern of the White House arid State Department long before the Soviet Commu nist party issued its showdown challenge Now it has become a vital concern To most diplomats it long has seemed inevitable that a defini tive break with China would mean the Soviet Union would have toworkto improve rela tionswith the West Not only does such a break mean return to the relative ly small socialist camp of the late 1940s it also means the Soviet Union must guard the worlds longest border against an openly hostile China In addition to the United States firmly opposing Commu nist expansion to the West there is now alsoCommunist China firmly opposing Soviet policy in the East Premier Khrushchev must be thanking his lucky stars he re sisted all pressures to help China build an atomic bomb With its limited resources fal tering agriculture and pledges to fight imperialism with im proved living standards for its people the Soviet Union will CHINESE Continued on Page 2 It showed conclusively mat the leaders of the Communist party of China have passed all limits in their political struggle against the world Communist movement the editorial con tinued and have chosen the Communist party of the Soviet Union and theSoviet Union as the main target for their at The remainder of the paper contained an anti Chinese speech by MikhaiI A Suslov the Soviet partys chief theore tician The speech had been kept secret since Suslov de livered it to a meeting of the Soviet Communist partys cen tral committee Feb 14 Accusino Red China of na tiohalist arrogance and great power egotistical interests

AP Advo cates and opponents of justice of the peace courts appeared at odds Friday after the Justice of the Peaceand Constables Asso ciation of Iowa aimed sharp re marks at a subcommittee of the Iowa Court Study Committee Judge Harvey Uhlenhopp of Hampton who heads the sub committee said earlier this week that proposed training schools for justices of the peace would dp littlemore than strengthen them and give them more lobbying strength The subcommittee was set up by the 1963 legislature In a statement Thursday the association strojigly objected to postponement of the schools which it said were for the bet terment of the lower courts in the slate of Iowa The assoc also protested a proposa Ithat JP courts be abolished i Judge Uhlenhopp said the Court Study Committee i thinking of recommending tha the justice of the peace systeir be replaced with a two layer district court George Lundberg association executive secretary countered It seems obvious that Judge Uhlenhopp in his reference to a twolayer court has in mine qualifications of being a mem ber of the bar The association said Judge Uhlenhopps remarks can do nothing to help reduce the death toll on our highways but add merely to the contempt of all law enforcement and more es pecially the lower courts which handle the largest volume of traffic Food industry may be called on carpet By SAM DAWSON AP Business Analyst NEW YORK food industry may be called on the carpet again to tell why the prices in the stores seem so high when compared to the prices on the farm President Johnson has asked Congress to make such a study Aif1 most housewives will watch with interest They note government figures showing it takes now to buy food they could get for in 19S759 or lor just a year ago At the same time farmers and especially cattle men complain of declining prices at the source of supply The President wants to Jmow if the benefits of advanced technology are being fairly dis tributed among farmers proc essor distributors ret a i 1 e r s and consumers The food industry has been on the carpet before admits the wide spread between the price of and a loaf of bread a steor and a steak But this time as in the past industry spokesmen are likely to stress the rising costs all along the way to the store from the farm or ranch They will point to higher transportation charges from the farm to the food processing plants and from the mills and packing houses to the super markets and corner groceries The industry also will say it pays more for rent and labor all along the route And it could add that the com petition keeps demanding more expensive processing and packaging and precooking or freezing The food industry is sure to emphasize that its margin of profits on sales is less than for most other industries arid leaves lUtle room for price slashing Figures on the relation of prof itsto sales in 1963 as compiled by the First National City Bank of New York show that for 2280 manufacturing companies the average was 57 per cent But 28 meat packing firms aver agtd only 07 per cent 18 bak ing companies 3 per cent 11 dairy products firms 27 per cent and 92 other food products processors 42 per cent The banks breakdown on prof it margins in 1963 shows 59 food chain companies averaging 12 per cent net income on sales volume But both housewives and cattle men will be interested in De partment of Agriculture figures showing that between 1947 and 1964 the prices the farmer got for his beef cattle went down 138 per cent while the house swife was seeing beef prices in the stores rise
