Hoffman has dismissed a four-year-old indictment against 12 members of the “Weatherman”! faction of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), including an Iowan. Among those who were charged with leading the riotous “Days of Rage” through Chicago streets in 1969 was Linda Sue Evans of Fort Dodge, Iowa. Hoffman acted on a government request which noted that a recent supreme court decision barring electronic surveillance without a court order would have hampered prosecution of the case. Hoffman, who became acquainted with Weatherman actions during the 1969-70 ‘'Chicago Seven” trial, said that in view of the high court’s ruling, “the government’s motion cannot be resisted.” The indictment charged that the defendants crossed state lines, ‘‘traveled, made speeches, published articles and made specific plans” for the disturbances at the SDS offices in Chicago. Center Point To Name Ad Hoc City Plan Unit CENTER POINT - The city council has approved, at the suggestion of Mayor Eileen Neenan, the selection of an ad hoc committee to aid in the long range city planning. Mayor Neenan made the suggestion during a special council meeting Thursday night saying that she felt youth, elderly, leaders of various organizations, and the pastors of the churches should be included on this committee. Further goals for the committee will be made at a later date. Announcement of the members of the committee will be made at the next council meeting. In other action, Mina Kennedy was sworn in as city treasurer, Harry Brookman as clerk and Ed Gustoff as fire chief. If. W. Holman was appointed mayor pro temp. ti unwell.

The entire west perimeter of the high school could be air-conditioned for around $19,000. These figures exclude architect’s fees. No decision was reached, and the board agreed to table the matter temporarily. Dr. Sorensen briefly told of the auditor’s report, which was received and filed. The report, Dr. Sorensen said, was a very good one, and the procedures which were recommended last year in the report were found much improved. A high school diploma was presented, with commendation, to Craig Lowry. Approval was given to the monthly bills and the minutes of the Dec. 19 special meeting.

As part of our wintertime gas leak detection program, it s his job to track trouble down before it happens. With the highly-sensitive Back Pack, even the smallest amount of escaping gas is quickly detected, alerting us to make immediate repairs. During cold months, frost-hardened ground can prevent leaking gas from escaping into the air, making it difficult to detect. That s why we rely on Back Pack to check gas service entrances in public buildings, manholes and sewers, while special truck units check along streets and curbs. Our year-round detection program also calls for regular testing of high pressure mains and safety checks in homes during service calls to make sure gas is properly odorized. All calls concerning suspected gas leaks are treated as emergencies and investigated at once, day or night. lf you suspect a gas leak... Please call us at once...
