Old Capitol was built native stone by native stone, between 1840 and 1842, and was the state capitol until 1857. Since then it has been a landmark on the University of Iowa campus. A major renovation occurred in the early 1920s. Today the main floor and second floor have been stripped to the original stone and brick interior walls, pre- paratory to restoration.

J. T. Rideoutte, IRS districl manager, said 11 retailers ol gasoline, No. 2 diesel fuel am home healing fuel have agreed to refund the overcharge to the public through reduced prices. He said each firm immediately will implement the lower price until refunds have reached the determined amount. The overcharges involve seven Iowa firms and four in Nebraska.

He said the investigators found the gasoline overcharge to be 1 to 2 cents a gallon; as high as 4 cents on diesel fuel and a maximum overcharge of 5 cents on home heating oil. He said the firms will reduce their prices at a rate of 2 cents a gallon until the amount is made up. More than one-third of the or- dered refunds was attributed to one truck stop in Nebraska. The IRS said Conley-Detlefsen Truck Stop on Interstate 80 near North Platte, Neb. was ordered to refund Other firms ordered to reduce jrices, their location and the amount of overcharge were: Laughman DX, Dallas Center, S631.61; Whitacre Texaco Ser- vice, Dallas Center, Don's rtobil Service, Perry, 'eterson Standard, Forest Cityj Jerry's Shell, Clear take, Benson Mobil Service Station, Omaha, Neb., Junction Truck Stop, owa Falls, North "Y" Truck Stop and Oil Co., ipencer, Liberty Gas and Oil Co., Omaha, and Updike Oil Co., Omaha, home in Muscatine, valued at common stock worth in HON Industries, a Muscatine office furniture com- pany; and a interest in Stanley's law firm and related property.

"I am not opposed to sex Daggett said. "I think there is a time and a place for it, but I disagree with mandating it to every school district I think the main responsibility of educa- ting children should be up to the parents and local school boards." The term "sex education' was not referred to directly in ;he bill but the term was men- ;ioned numerous tunes in the .engthy floor debate. The mea- sure specified only "social and 'amily living" instruction. Representatives- supporting family living be taught in schools because sex education often is not taught in the home and the family unit is being de- stroyed by divorces and general unhappiness.

Wally Horn (D-Cedar Rapids) noted that the bill would require schools to offer family courses, but it would not force all students to take the subject. "We're not asking that every student in every school take this said Horn, a Cedar Rapids school teacher. "Any jarent who does not want his child in that class can take him out."

Maurice Hennessey (D- tunities should be afforded those The law now says that able- bodied poor relief recipients may be required to "labor faith- fully on the streets or high- ways" as a condition to receiv- ing assistance. The bill, which now goes to the senate, would allow the county board of supervisors to require them to work on "go- vernment -owned properties, parks and recreation centers" as well. It would, however, exempt people over 65 and anyone whose presence.is required at home to care for a child or children 12 years old or younger. Raps Turner The Republican leader of the senate Gen. said Wednesday Richard Turner proposed a state constitutional amendment Wednesday to break the road use tax fund in an effort to free additional monies for public transportation development in the state. Sen. Minnette Doderer (D-Io- wa City) said she would author an amendment adding a provi- sion to the constitution allowing money from the road fund which has been used exclusively for highway projects to be used for improving the state's railroads and mass transit facil- ities. Shun Gas Tax Hike The Iowa senate state govern ment committee has voted to delay consideration of a two- cent per gallon increase in motor fuel taxes. Instead, the committee voted 10-2 Wednesday to recommend for passage a bill to reclassify Iowa's streets and roads, and redivide them among the state county and cities.

Sen. Clifton C. Lamborn (R- Maquoketa) said the continuing feud between Turner and the legislature "serves no useful purpose'1 and that the constant criticism of legislation is only angering some lawmakers. He said the recent statements by Turner are making the attorney general "less 'effective." Turner Tuesday criticized the legislature for a loophole that exists in the state's new gam- bling law, and last week at- tacked the lawmakers for in- cluding a provision in the law which could prohibit cash prizes at golf tournaments. In addition, Turner has been an outspoken opponent of the proposed crimi- nal code revision. >s Transit Eastern Iowa legislator the highway. Transportation lommittee.
