sales appear to be almost back where they were Nov 9 1959 when the Food Drug Admin istration FDA impounded the crop THE FDA REPORT said number of shipments had been tainted by a weed killer which had

bumper crop is presenting its problems We are greatly concerned about our ability to market the 1960 crop Stevens said Due to lack of funds when sales were cut off last year we cut down on advertising But starting the last week of October we started to spend three times as much per week on advertising as in 1959 he said STEVENS SAID years bad publicity was offset this year by a report that cranber ries have the highest pectin con tent of any fruit Pectin in turn gets credit in a recent research study for effectively lowering blood cholesterol which doctors blame for high blood pressure and heart disease Stevens advertising c a m paign stresses the use of cran berries with all kinds of bud get meats to add zest He al so recommends to the holiday season housewife Cranberry nut bread pie

ULTIMATUM LOS ANGELES ransit workers Friday were old to go back to work here by midnight Sunday or face con empt proceedings Many loopholes in monies credit tax DES MOINES ffi Many loopholes in the states monies and iredits tax were bared Friday in a report by the Iowa Legislative Research Bureau The monies and credits tax is a socalled intangible prop erty tax on bank accounts stocks bonds mortgages etc Counties assess the tax at the rate of six mills per evaluation above The state collects one of the six mills for retirement of the million Korean War bonus bond issue The research bureau has been working with a sevenman legislative committee in studying this tax primarily what is or what is not taxable under YWnrfs different from year ago Mild winter Maybe says weatherman WASHINGTON UPI It looks as though we mightbe in for a generally mild win ter If the prevailing westerlies keep about the same course theyre on now If these lofty winds also called jet streams dont weaken and start meander ing These are big ifs and the weather bureau wouldnt bet you a dead match that this winter wont turn out to be as mean as last Still the high westerlies are performing a lot better than they were a year ago at this time and there is no sign that they are about to doublecross us On the strength of their con duct during the first half of November the bureau in its 30day outlook predicted mild weather on the average for the month ending in mid December The westerlies are great rivers of air which flow west to east around the northern hemisphere They channel the

instead of driving more or less straight across the continent they mean dered The result was that cold air masses from Canada and Alaska were channeled south ward This fall the reverse is true Tne westerlies are far ther north than normal and moving faster than normal They are crossing the country along the USCanadian bor der Because they come in from the Pacific their temperatures are on the mild side and be cause they are moving fast and straight they are fending off invasions of cold air from the far north According to W H Klein of the weather bureaus extended forecasts section the wester lies behavior could change next month But they seem at the moment to be in a fairly stable pattern Weather scientists are doing a lot of research in the hope some day of being able to make forecasts an entire sea son in advance In the present state of the art however the best they can do is to estimate average conditions only 30 days ahead the present law Findings will be made available to the 1961 Iowa Legislature for possible action The Iowa Tax Commission during the past several months has been waging an intensive campaign across the state to collect the tax from alleged evaders From its study said the re search bureau it appears that the tax base of the monies and credits tax is not as broad as commonly thought because there are many types of monies and credits which are exempt under the law THE REPORT pointtd out that suggestions have been made to tighten the law to pro vide for better enforcement to abolish the tax reduce it from a rate of six mills to two mills or
