and Waited Frtw Full LWM Ctalt a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY SEPTEMBER 17 1991 This Piper Consists of Two One 2 I One Mans Opinion A Radio ConuneuUry W EARL HALL Managing Editor Not Exactly a Commentary IM saying goodby to summer in a visit with you that will con cern itself with nothing more im portant than the weather itself Only by the broadest of interpre tations can what I have in mind beidentified as a commentary First of all I think I should take time out to clear myself with re spect to a commentary of a month or so ago in which I related some personal experiences in two fields 1 Not smoking 2 Not eating From the letters Ive received I have concluded that my efforts on that occasion were either mis understood or resented in quite a few quarters For example Ive heard from or three irate husbands and at least one unhappy wife In each case the partner in marriage had quoted me as saying everybody ought to quit smoking And whal a distortion of the facts that was Woodman Spare That Tree What I did all that I that if others were get ting as little xeal enjoyment out of smoking as I was in the days when I was almost a chainsmok er it would be good business to give up such an almost purely me chanical habit But I went out of my way to urge those who get pleasure or satisfaction from smoking to go on doing it I pointed out that more than a year and a half of complete abstinence had demon strated rather completely that smoking is without effect on my healthor wellbeing in general Quite obviously I was misquoted on this whole matter Im hoping that in this little explanation IU be able to clarify my position on smoking My reasoning is that there are so many things for which I am justifiably censurable that I shouldnt be criticized1 for something I didnt say Fat Friends in Action In this connection I should ad mit that my little sermon about the evils of overweight had some thingless than a 100 per centac ceptance and approval from listen ers and readers A few have been kind enough to tell me my com mentary influencedthem or some member of their family to enter a discipline But more have let me know they think Im a but tinsky simple Some of you may remember that my commentary was prompted by a New Jersey friend who had lost his youthful figure I didnt name HE loiew who I was talking about Ive heard from him He opened up with an old yarn about John Barryniore who was once accused of a shady romance Dont you feel terrible about til of the nasty things being writ ten about you he was asked His answer Just so they spell my name right had a lot of good bad and indifferent things said about me from time to time my Prince ton friend added But up to the present time I have never had an editorial written about me New Opportunity Opens Next I suppose some temper ance lecturer want me to go along with him and sit on the staee as a horrible example of the evils of strong drink he wrote further Then there was this en couraging little postscript Almost thou persuadest me From a Chicago friend I had an Interesting little report on a fam ily diet which had resulted in the lossof 12 pounds by the husband and 40 pounds by the wife Again the most interesting part of the letter was the postscript admoni tion Please dont show this let ter to my wife But from an old university friend now in a responsible posi tion at Purdue man was broadened by something be sides bad my funniest This I know because he was broad back in those student days when neither of us had been out of our native state Running True to Form I never saw it fail he began When some monkey has been advised by his doctor that he bet ter reduce or he is goina to die at Both Parties Watch Political Effect Delayed Action on Beardsley Taxes Studied By ROBERT H0GAN Daily PTCM Writer There are mixed feelings in both re publican and democratic circles Governor Beardsleys federal in come tax problems If the matter is settled now at the terms publicly reported by the governor himself many observers feel that it will make little change on the politcial front from a re publican standpoint Crediting that opinion are the facts that Beardsley made the first public statement on his income tax affairs a matter that is normally considered quite confidential by the bureau of Internal revenue Also Beard sley confessed that he had made what he considers an honest kind thousands of citizens make in filing income 4ax returns He further pointed out that though this is a matter of per sonal business it behooves the over the political implications of governor to give the people of his state an honest statement of fact concerning it But the case hasnt been settled as yet What if the government does not choose to accept the payment tendered by the governor Conceivably too pres ent status could simmer for some time before the justice depart ment which reportedly now has the case makes a final decision Even though it might settle at the figure what effect would the delayed action have politically Those are questions which merely point up the reasons why there is no jelling of political thought and action at present Governor Beardsley told re porters In response to an inquiry that he is too busy being governor to even think about his future political plans But while the matter boils there are antiBeardsley republi cans who consider this the wedge needed to defeat the governor if he seeks a 3rd term As a matter of fact calls are al ready being made in an effort to muster support for other possible candidates in the republican gu bernatorial primary Democrats dont know just what the outcome will be That issome democrats dont know Jake More state party chair man does He says this will mean that the democrats will take over the statehouse on Jan 1 1953 More just back from Washing ton said that he was surprised that the matter broke into public The party chairman like many hundreds of others wasnt sur prised at the news however Firs1 bits of this information started creeping out during the last po litical campaign Of course the democrats are somewhat on the spot in this mat ter also With the federal administra tion democratic the activities of the federal bureau of internal revenue in the treatment of this case against a republican gover nor are being closely watched Had it been brought up if i1 could have been in the midst OJ a political election campaign sure ly the democrats would have hac some answering to do forcharges of politics would have been prev alent Ike Asks Allies for More Forces By DONALD J GONZALES United

enforcement officers of all kinds have been notified to be on the lookout for Kitts They include state and city police sheriffs and special agents of railroads Once Cornered The Omaha bank iurglar and

streets here unrecog nized They also said that while Citts still has some underworld connection he no longer has the quick money resources which he tapped in past criminal opera tions Yet it was also pointed out that it will be too hot in some under world quarters here for Kitts who had started to talk for the FBI and Nebraska safety in vestigators The last reported clue on Kitts was the finding late Saturday of the handcuffs and belt which he was wearing at the time of his capture So far as the handcuffs were concerned Police Detective Capt John F Edwards said were not certain even that it was Kitts who left them there All we are sure of is that he is not wearing them now Used Small Tool Edwards said the cuffs were apparently sprang by a strong small tool He said the tongue part of the cuff still around Kitts right wrist was bent slight ly enough to allow it to slip loose Detective Captain Alvin Clin chard speculated that if Kitts had dropped the handcuffs where they were found it indicated that he did not have a car at that time If he had a car it is logical that he would have thrown them in the weeds along a road or dropped them off a bridge rather than get out of a car and

day by government plans to lei the cost of corned barbecued and other processed beef to go up too The office of price stabilization announced Sunday night that wholesale beef ceilings are being raised Itsaid that retail beef and pork price boosts will be coming along in a few days meaning the lousewife will pay about two cents a pound more Monday OPS said beef proces sors can also compute new ceil ings They may do so by taking jreKorean selling prices and adding the increased cost of raw materials OPS said the overall result will be to raise prices at the butcher shop counter The new regulation effective next Saturday applies to cured orned cooked smoked dried anc sarbecued beef OPS said a few processors who raised their prices aster than their cost went up jefore the general price freeze may get rollbacks A beef carcass under the new wholesale ceilings effective Wed nesday will be about a pennya pound higher The OPS said this is necessary because prices for bides and fats from a beef anima have dropped to a point denttn packer processing profits Packers Protest Two big midwest paddngjious es immediately protested that th penny increase is not enough t help them out of a squeeze be tween the price of live beef and the amount they cam pay for i under ceiling regulations The higher beef wholesale prices will require the higher retai prices These changes in butcher shop ceilings will average abou H to 2 cents a pound more to the housewife for beef cuts In adjusting wholesale beej prices the OPS also moved to cor rect what it said had been gen erally too high ceilings for the better cuts of beef and too low ceilings for cheaper cuts The good steaks werent selling choice porterhouse for instance about 4 cents apound Less de sirable cuts which peoplewere scrambling for wfll get increased ceilings The OPS said it had a choice about letting beef prices It could have restored packer profit margins to what they were Defore hide and tallow prices dropped by merely reducing
