Steinbeck: Meet with Policemen Constructive Safely Commissioner James Steinbeck said his meeting Fri-; day morning with members of he polite department was providing an op- portunity for an exchange of views concerning salaries and working conditions. Members of the police patrol division held the closed-door meeting at 64 Sixteenth avenue SW, and invited Steinbeck to join them after the meeting was in progress. Many members of the police force have voiced displeasure with a 6.5 percent salary in- crease for 1974. Some have been writing state, rather than city, citations as a protest, thus deny- ing income to the city.

Pentagon Request The Pentagon announced it lad asked the White House and :he energy office to boost the military fuel allotment slightly .0 permit more regular air crew training and to "do something about the guard and the reserve stand down." The National Guard Assn. wired President Nixon saying 'further standdowns will seriously impair the national guard's ability to carry out its assigned national defense mis- ions." Major Gen. Henry McMillan, adjutant general of Florida anc association president, told Nixon "continued grounding leads to rapid deterioration of aircraf and especially of sensitive anc complex weapons systems." McMillan wrote Schlesinger and energy chief William Simon "vigorously protesting" the re strictions, which he said would adversely affect flying safety and increase risks of loss of lift and property later.

"There was some feeling o mutual agreement at that meet ng that they will continue vrite the state tickets on an in dividual, voluntary basis." No Commitments Steinbeck said he made no commitments to the group ex cept to look into some of thi suggestions and grievances t1 see what can be done. He said the suggestions in eluded setting up a quarter master system, so policeme could drawV'uniforms and equip ment instead of getting vouch ers to buy the equipment. Another suggestion was t 5rant incentive pay for workin [he night shift, and allow patro men to work during one of thei days off, with pay, to help solv a manpower shortage durin vacation periods. Smaller Vehicles Many of the patrolmen also suggested the city buy smaller vehicles, with smaller engines, he said.

March Decision .She pointed out the decision to morning at a meeting of to anniversary dates as board of supervisors.

Some Deputies Commissioner Juan Sheriff Grant complained that j starting rate for unskilled men ion the road crew is a Cortez month, while trained starting Council Vote The citv council voted unani- mously Dec. 26 to amend the 974 budget to transfer over million to the airport construc- ion fund. The fund was nearly SI mil- ion in the red because of land lurchases made in 1972 in antic- pation of federal compensatory unds. The transfers of funds moved half million dollars from the airport operations fund and from the liquor fund to :he airport construction fund. Unnecessary The petition filed with Kopel said the transfer of funds was 'unnecessary, unreasonable and not in the interest of the public welfare" and did not comply with requirements of state law :or budget changes The funds would be used for 'unneeded, unwanted and un- wise expansion of the municipal airport without a public referen- it said. The petition claims a referendum is sary since a bond issue to alte viate the deficit in the airport construction fund was defeated by referendum in 1972.

USSR Executes 2 For Fruit Fraud MOSCOW (UPI) Two Sovi- et citizens who left the fruit out of the fruit juice they manufac- ,ured have been executed for raud, the newspaper Babinski Rabochi said. The newspaper, copies of] which reached Moscow Wednes- day from the southern republic of Azerbaidzhan, said the men executed were the director and the accountant of a juice facto- Thcy were accused of selling a mixture of water, citric acid and sugar, and pocketing their budget for the purchase of fruit. The men, identified as Tejmur Akhmedov and Zaman Khaki- mov, kept up their fraud for two years, the newspaper said. The report said their appeal against their sentences was rejected and they were shot by a firing squad. Child Injured In C. R.

"We were deciding whether to take the truck in or go in on foot to shut off the valve of the tanker truck when the gas exploded. It was like an earthquake. Quick work by police was cre- dited with preventing serious in- juries or deaths. Officials said about 20 to 30 families had been awakened and evacuated before the blast. ,It knocked out all power and utilities in the area and police immediately sealed off six square blocks around the gas company. A sheet metal shop and an auto body shop were destroyec and several other businesses suffered heavy damage. Iowa Coal (Continued from Page 1.) operations from the efforts now employed in the giant coal-producing states such as Kentucky and Pennsylvania. He said Iowa coal lies in "lens-shaped arid not in the rich, thick seams of coal producing states. Strip Mining He said this means removal of Iowa coal would call for devel- opment of smaller companies strip mining instead of deep mines as is required elsewhere. Ray emphasized it was not the wish of the state to com- pete with private enterprise in extracting coal from the soil. ''Instead, we hope that hrough the leadership and ef- orts of state government we can revive this lagging in- dustry." The area where state officials believe coal pockets exist, and n which the state mine would eventually be located, encom- passes all counties south and ivest of a meandering line. The line runs through these counties: Monona, Ida, Sac, C a 1 h o u n Pocaliontas, Hum- boldt, Webster, Hamilton, Har- din, Grundy, Marshall, Jasper, Poweshiek, Keokuk, Mahaska, Jefferson, Henry, Lee, and Van Buren. Mines Clustered Iowa's existing coal mines are clustered in Marion, Ma- haska, Lucas, Monroe, and Wa- pello counties southeast of Des Moines. A timetable worked up by, ;tate officials calls for advance planning to begin this month. The process of site selection and acquisition of the needed 600 acres, through loading rail- road cars with coal would ex- tend through December, 1976. Plans call for using the coal n production of steam heat and electricity at the Iowa State univesrity coal-fired generating plant. One problem in use of Iowa coal as it is mined is its 5 to 6 percent sulfur content, which has an adverse effect on the en- vironment when burned to gen- erate electric power. But officials believe washing processes and extended re- search will yield1 a coal that can be burned and will not ex- ceed sulfur emission limits.
