Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - December 19, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant new vol 92, no. 298 it. Pleasant Iowa saturday evening december 19, 1970 Price to cents Jeffrey Hart faculty aberration in a previous column i pointed out that the troublesome situation on the Campus is connected with the development of a much More instrumental relationship Between student and institution. Very much More than in the past the student uses the institution the degree gains him Entrance to the meritocracy. Much less today does he identify himself with the institution and make it a component of his sense of self. But this profound social fact Long in the making does not explain Why some issues and not others move the student to action and to disruption. Why Given a predisposition to use the University does he select just these issues his selection of issues there is no doubt is determined by the overwhelmingly Liberal character of the american University especially the so called elite schools such As the Ivy league Berkeley and the first line state universities. Too at Princeton which was not Long ago a very bastion of social privilege and then in important ways actually a Southern school the year 1968 found some 80 per cent of the faculty supporting Hubert Humphrey while Nixon and Dick Gregory evenly split the remainder. That Nixon and Dick Gregory a Radical Black each got about to per cent at Princeton suggests How aberrant a phenomenon this faculty is within its american context. Too the summer 1970 Issue of the quarterly Magazine of the political science association extends this impression with some immensely revealing figures. A nationwide Survey of 60,000 faculty members showed for example that in the social sciences and the Liberal arts some 70 per cent of the faculty approved of the emergence of Radical student activism As against 30 per cent who disapproved. The same proportions held when they were asked to Label themselves politically. Left and Liberal Drew about 70 per cent Middle of the Road 20 per cent conservative to percent. In a recent Gallop poll on the other hand More than 50 per cent of americans generally designated themselves As conservative on Vietnam to choose two representative departments the breakdown no Pun intended went this Way not counting a no opinions sociology immediately with draw 35.2 encourage coalition government 49.8 reduce commitment but prevent communist takeover 11.8 defeat communists whatever Cost 1.3. English immediately withdraw 313 encourage coalition government 46.5 reduce commitments but prevent communist takeover 16.9 defeat communists whatever Cost 2.8. In this nationwide faculty Survey 65 per cent voted for Humphrey 15 per cent for Nixon 5 per cent for other candidates excluding Wallace who got about Zero while the rest a rather Large percentage did no to vote. Again the Liberal left percentage hovers around 70 per cent. Thus the atmosphere on the Campus is startlingly More Liberal than it is in the surrounding society in which moreover As the election results and other figures show Strong moderate conservative currents Are flowing. Under these circumstances tension a even conflict a Between the Campus and the surrounding society is perfectly predictable. But Why a the logical next question a is faculty sentiment so Liberal left not at All in my View because College faculties Are especially intelligent or unusually Well informed though that would be their answer. As a matter of fact most College professors while perfectly competent specialists in their academic Fields Are by no Means especially intelligent much less Well informed on a wide Range of subjects. The answer in my View is that individuals who already Are left or Liberal tend to choose academic careers a they choose precisely against that surrounding society. The Choice is As much not to become a businessman a general a congressman or a lawyer As it is a Choice in favor of specializing in Shakespeare or structural linguistics. Given this kind of self selection the aberrant results in the above statistics Are scarcely surprising. Nor is the behaviour we have become accustomed to on the College Campus.

Locker Plant operators plagued by requirements red tape inconsistencies by Sally Moreland Farmington a the climate ranges from warm to Cool to frigid in three area locker plants ordered by the Iowa state department of agriculture to Stop slaughtering and processing until they complied with regulations. Too Loren Ewing affable manager of the Bonaparte locker Plant said a a it a the rules so that Sall there is to it. Its the Law so we have to comply with the the Bonaparte Plant closed tuesday for meat processing but was open for other business. There Are 300 rental boxes in the Plant owned by or. J. O.

He said that the work should be done in a few Days there were just a few things to finish. Too the Lack of three Stamps put the hex on the Houghton locker. Paul Conrad owner said a my Plant was inspected and certified and therefore should not have been listed As closed for sanitary Conradus first reaction when he saw his name in the paper monday morning was that a somebody he called the Lay inspector at Stockport and he in turn called the veterinarian inspector at West Branch. Conrad said that he did no to know where the error was but a i did no to like my name in the paper on the unsanitary a through a slight error somewhere i did no to get my three Stamps lamented Conrad. He explained that this was Why he can to kill his own beef and sell it. The three a Iowa inspected pass Stamps bearing his number were reportedly mailed out of Chicago the 10th, but had not yet arrived at Houghton on tuesday. It was because of this hitch Conrad said that he cannot kill his own beef and sell it. But he can kill for a customer and also sell state or Federal inspected meat. As far As the inspection is concerned Conrad said a i m for it. A the said he Felt this Way because in 1965 he drove a meat truck Over a three state area. He said a i remember seeing some plants where i take any of my beef Conrad declared that despite what was in the paper the Houghton Plant is open for Bushless but not for retail. Too Herman Butch Sanders of West Point owner of the Frozen food Center there is More than somewhat unhappy because of the a red Sanders has been owner operator of the Plant for 22 years. He has served three years on the Board of the Iowa locker and meat processors association inc. His Plant is closed for butchering and processing until he complies with a list of changes. He says they gave him a list but they keep changing it a you can to get a definite answer from your inspectors on the requirements you need to be certified a he explained. His list of la changes Are mostly minor and in elude plastering the Walls in the j Slaughter rooms which is being done now. Too Sanders cites examples when he first started he was told to paint the tracks for the toll trolleys. Then there was a a take the paint off order six months later. He was told to paint the inside of his cooler with aluminium paint. It pass. He was then told to paint Over the aluminium with White. It peeled and so then it was a peeling paint citation. A now they 1 say to put Metal on the Walls a he said. All these changes Are at the owners expense. A a it a going to be tried out to see if it works for someone else first before i spend any More Money a he declared. When Sanders put a new ceiling with a Vinyl finish on two years ago he said that or. Austin t. Knosby . Of Des Moines director of the Iowa meat and Poul try inspection service said that it would pass. When the inspector came he pass it. Sanders said that it Wasny to unsanitary conditions in his Plant but a matter of repairs that put him on the list. It has Cost him $4,000 already this year he stated. A where is it going to Stop we can to seem to get an answer a he said. Lockers Are subject to both state and Federal inspection he explained. And he said that the state could pass you and the Federal might not. Just then a customer came in growling a i Haven to been poisoned Here and As he walked out lie was heard muttering a mostly red too a if the place is so unsanitary i done to think first District congressman Fred Schwengel would have his calf butchered and processed Here or even have it in this locker a said Sanders. A Schwengel bought the calf at the Lee county fair last summer and it has been Here since a he added. It seems that red tape snarls congressmen also. Schwengels calf is still in there because he find a Way to ship it. The Railroad express will not ship fresh meat because Sanders said that Schwengel probably could t ask the truckers to haul his meat so he takes it Back to Washington by plane a Frozen package at a time.

Close out farm sales not subject to tax by Harrison Weber Des Moines idea a attorney general Richard c. Turner has overruled the state Revenue department by holding that close out farm sales Are not subject to the state sales tax. Turners opinion is contrary to the stand taken recently by the Revenue department which issued a circular stating in effect that House passed legislation creating a not Only were farm sales subject to $350 million three year Federal profile tax but garage sales As against alcoholism Friday. Members approved it by a voice vote despite suggestions they get More results by setting an example themselves. Rep. John Kyi a Iowa said it was a a ridiculous to pass such a Bill at a time when a two or three thousands cocktail parties were contemplated hereabouts during the Holiday season. He said congressmen ought to set a better example. The Bill would establish a National Institute on alcohol abuse and alcoholism within the u. S. Public health service and would provide for Grants to states and private hospitals for treatment of alcoholism and research on the problem. Differences with the Senate Bill will have to be worked out. Sen. Harold Hughes d Iowa a reformed alcoholic is the chief congressional sponsor of the legislation. Ii would also ban the Sale of cars committee is for a statewide pro after Jan. I 1976, that did not pro Perty tax. Duce 90 per cent fewer nitrogen oxides emissions than current models. Automakers who fear they can not meet the Bill a provisions could seek a one year Extension of each deadline but there could be no further delay unless Congress approved it. The administration and the Auto Industry favored far More related guidelines. Ray Uncertain about support of new proposal sales. Too Turner held that the Farmer going out of business is exempted from paying the sales tax on possessions auctioned off because this is a Quot casual in response to a question raised by senator James Schaben Turner said it would take a a strained and artificial a interpretation to say that the final a going out of business Sale of a Farmers equipment even though conducted by an auctioneer can be a recurring Sale by the owner of the property. Gross receipts from casual sales Are exempt from the state sales tax. Too state Revenue director William Forst said he will abide by the attorney eneral a opinion and will withdraw the circular As it relates to farm and garage sales which fall into the casual Sale category. Schaben who is an auctioneer at Des Moines up a gov. Robert Ray said Friday he is still Uncertain whether he will support a proposal for the state to take Over the Des Moines College of osteopathic Medicine thus establishing a second state supported medical school. Ray who has voiced concern Over the shortage of Iowa a medical manpower resources said the present proposal is considerably different than earlier such propositions. A a it a a different Ball game now a Ray said. The governor said that when he studied the possibility of assisting the financially burdened College last year it was a Only a matter of $2 but now he said the College is seeking substantially More state funding. Promoters of the idea say the state would have to provide $8 million by april 1971, to match Federal monies for a new physical Plant. In addition Ray estimated it would also require about $5 million annually for operational costs if the state took Over control of the Des Moines College. Members of the Linn mar school j Dunlap asked Turner to define the terse verse by a. C. Gordon bachelors know our womankind much More than husbands do if they did no to then its sure that they a is married tool Board met in emergency session thursday night and announced they were seeking a $200,000 loan a to meet the payroll which was due Friday. Although Tho funds from the state enabled Tho District to Moet its december payroll the Board admitted it would probably face a similar problem in january. Status of auctioneers in All sales. Turner replied that if an auctioneer owns an interest in items boing sold at auction such sales would be subject to the sales tax. Otherwise the casual Sale principle would apply. When the Revenue department recently restated its Rule calling for farm and Arage sales to be taxed there was an immediate Public outcry. Revenue director Forst said he Singapore acts on pollution Singapore up eminent has engaged the gov experts to car stolen at n. L.
