Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., Jan. 24. Ift74 Funds To Fix Defects In Old Capitol Asked IOWA CITY — So restoration plans may proceed on schedule, the Old Capitol Restoration committee will ask the Iowa legislature to appropriate funds to remedy structural defects in the roof and interior and exterior walls of the 133-year-old building. The state’s first capitol is in the initial stages of restoration under the leadership of a statewide committee chaired by Susan Rancher of Iowa City. A combination of private and federal funds will finance the restoration itself, scheduled for completion by the time of the national bicentennial in 1976.

Today the main floor and second floor have been stripped to the original stone and brick interior walls, pre- _ paratory to restoration. Former i J U.S. Secretary of the Interior Stuart Udall says the energy crisis will not be over in a year. “The President has predicted that the crisis would be over in a year,” Udall said in a speech. at Wartburg college Wednesday. ; “Well, don’t believe that. The energy crisis is not phony, it is a major event.” Udall who served under Presidents Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy, said he has no exclusive information on the energy crisis, but added that it is going to affect the economy and make “big changes” in American life. Udall was secretary of the interior for eight years, stepping down in 1969. He now works with a Washington, D.C., planning firm. “When the interior walls, foundations and the roof structure were exposed for the first time in half a century, architectural and engineering Stanleys List Net Worth at $734,878 David Stanley Drake University Ups Tuition Costs DES MOINES — Tuition for full-time day students at Drake university will increase from $2,320 to $2,500 a year effective with the beginning of the fall 1974 semester, Dr. Wilbur C. Miller, president of the university, announced this week. He also announced that tuition for part-time day students will increase from $78 to $84 a semester hour; for students in University college, the adult education division, from $63 to $73 a semester hour, and for students in the summer session from $68 to $73 a semester hour. The executive committee of Drake’s board of trustees approved the increases after an extensive study by the university’s officers. Drake’s total expenditures were $17,852,617 in 1972-73 and are budgeted to be $19,267,604 in 1973-74. DES MOINES - U.

By Gordon Jackson DES MOINES - UPI) - The Iowa house Wednesday slapped down a section of the schools s t a n d a r d s legislation which would have required teaching of family living and sex education courses in junior and senior high schools. On a 49-45 vote, the lawmakers upheld an amendment by Horace Daggett (R-Kent) that deleted the family living course requirement from the list of subjects to be taught in the chools. The school standards bill was approved by the Iowa senate last session, but the house schools committee added the family living course requirement to the measure before it was brought to the floor Wednesday. The representatives did not take a final vote on the bill before adjournment. Protests “Order” Rep. Wally Horn the responsibilities surrounding family living and sex. “In some communities, one out of three children is from a broken home,” Horn said. “This education shouldn’t be learned in the restroom. It should be taught in the classroom where it can be handled properly.” * * * $669,103 in HON Industries, a Income Taxes Separate Funds Mr and Mrs Staley also     M    f reported their action taken dur- 1    ,      ,    , ing 1973 to comply with their i P an Y J a $33,767 interest in policies against conflict of inter- Stanley’s law firm and related est. “We did not accept gifts property. from lobbyists, took no gift worth more than $25 except from family, and kept all cam-!

Dial Down... Put Your Savings In The Bank Open Mon. thru Thurs. 9 til 4:00 Friday 9 til 6 Concert of Chamber Music To Be Sunday MT. VERNON — A concert of chamber music will be presented Sunday at Cornell college as a sort of “final exam” for a group of independent study projects carried out during the three-week January Interim term. The concert by the 18-member group will take place at 7:30 p.m. in King Chapel. The public is welcome. Works to be performed will be representative of the transition period from Renaissance to Baroque musical style. The time span is about 1550 to 1650. East Iowans in the group include Shirley Weston, Cedar Rapids; Esther Moore, Sigourney; Elise Kaufman, Union. Daggett said he did not oppose family living courses in the schools because it would provide sex education, but because under the bill the state would be ordering the local districts what to teach in their schools. “I ani not opposed to sex education,” 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 educating children should be up to the parents and local school boards.” The term “sex education” was not referred to directly in the bill but the term was mentioned numerous times in the lengthy floor debate. The measure specified only “social and family living” instruction. Representatives supporting the bill said family living courses should be taught in schools because sex education often is not taught in the home and the family unit is being destroyed by divorces and general unhappiness. “Protect Family Unit” Rep. Donald Lippold (R-Wa-terloo) said the family unit should be protected through family studies in the schools. “We have more crime, more murders, more families beaking up In divorce,” said Lippold, an educator. “When the family breaks down, watch out for your society. We must protect the family unit.” Rep. 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 Welfare Work County relief recipients could be required to work in parks and other public properties under a bill passed 88-3 by the Iowa house Wednesday. Rep. Maurice Hennessey (D-Ryan) said broader work opportunities should be afforded those on the county relief rolls. The law now says that ablebodied poor relief recipients may be required to “labor faithfully on the streets or highways” as a condition to receiving assistance. The bill, which now goes to the senate, would allow the county board of supervisors to require them to work on “government -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. * * * proposed a .stale constitutional a rn e n d rn e n t 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 provision 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 facilities. * * * Shun Gas Tax Hike The Iowa senate state government committee has voted to delay consideration of a two-cerrt 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. * * * Other Bills Bills in the Iowa legislature Wednesday: Passed by House 1IF553, To provide that county relief recipients may be required to work on public property other than roads. 88-3.

Lamborn (R-Maquoketa) said the continuing feud between Turner and the legislature “serves no useful purpose” 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 gambling law, and last week attacked the lawmakers for including a provision in the law which could prohibit cash prizes at golf tournaments.
