Million Budget Loss Forecast for Area Schools Schools within the six-county area comprising the Joint County school system stand to lose over from their budgets as a result of a student decrease enrollment during the last year. Supt. Dwight D. Bode said each child authorizes a school to a budget expenditure of approx- imately Therefore, loss of 200 children by the Marion In- dependent school system means it has lost from its school budget as a result of the enrollment drop. Schools have one option, how- ever, regarding budgets. They may either use the January en- rollment figures from the prc ceding school year, or Sep- tember enrollment figures when school begins. Twenty-one of the 34 schools in the Joint County area experi- enced population ioss. The great- est loss was suffered by the Deep River-Millcrsburg district, an 8 percent decrease in student population. Marion Independent lost C.7 percent. Cedar Rapids Community lost 588 students, or 2.5 percent. Of the 13 schools in Joint County where student enroll- ment increased, nine are in Linn county. They arc: Alburnett, 0.3 percent; Center Point, 8.9 percent; Central City, 2.3 percent; College Communi- ty, 2.3 percent; Linn-Mar, 2.7 percent; Lisbon, 1.1 percent; Mt. Vernon, 2.5 percent; North Linn, 1.2 percent, and Spring- ville, 0.6 percent. The other schools in the sys- tem which showed growth were: Shcllsburg, 0.8 percent; Lin- coln Community, 0.9 percent; West Branch, 2.3 percent and Highland 1.8 percent.

The court said this week that the drug, which has been shown to produce cancer in laboratory animals, can be marketed again until the F.D.A. holds the required hearings or until the secretary of health, education and wel- fare "concludes that such marketing constitutes an im- m i n e n t hazard to public health." "Study It" A H.E.W. spokesman said last night that the agency's lawyers "will have to study it and figure out the next step." The ruling Thursday came in two separate opinions filed by different three-judge ap- peals panels. Both opinions were written by Judge Harold Leventhal. The first came in law suits filed by Hess Clark, a divi- sion of Rhodia, Inc., and Vine- land Laboratories, Inc., both manufacturers ot" DES pellets which were banned by the F.D.A. in April, 1973. The second involved law suits brought by Chemetron Corp., Dawe's Laboratories, Inc., and Hess and Clark, all of whom manufacture DES feed premixes that were banned in August, 1972. Both forms of DES are used to make animals, mainly cat- tle and sheep, gain weight more quickly. The animals ei- ther ate the food premixes or had the pellets implanted in their ears. Fred C.

With educators voting, he proposal recommended by a eacher committee a week earli- er was adopted by a vote of 57G- 165. Slightly more than per- sons were eligible to vote. The package includes a 5.26 icrcent increase in teachers' iase pay, plus longevity in- creases ranging from to i320, bringing the total increase o an average of 7.18 percent. Under the plan, the average eacher will receive a total in- crease of Those lowest on he schedule will receive ind the highest raise will be The Cedar Rapids Federation of Teachers made the following statement concerning the vote on !the proposal: "The.....Federation is disap- pointed in the outcome of the rote. We feel we represent the opinions of a majority of the :eachcrs in opposing the con- Tact. We could have had a bet- :cr contract but there were too many administrative obstacles. "The voting process, for ex- ample, varied too much from luilding to building. A shoebox on a principal's desk is not the jest way to conduct an election. We wanted to examine the voting lists to see how many ad- ministrators voted, but in some juildings, no lists were required. "We will do what we can to see that such voting practices do not happen again." (Continued from Page 1.) more specific about the materi- als it wanted. But Dash pointed out that the decision doesn't affect the sub- poena for the five tapes. And, since the original subpoenas were served July 23 the com- mittee has demanded nearly 500 tapes and hundreds of othei documents. Before Feb. 6 Gesell asked Nixon to submit before Feb. 6 a statement "in- dicating whether he still wishes to invoke executive privilege as to these tapes" and the reasons disclosure to the committee would not be in the public inter- est. "This statement must be signed by the President, for only he can invoke the privilege at Gesell ruled. He said the statement would be made part of the public record. Prosecutor Demand The committee issued its orig- inal subpoenas about the same time the special Watergate prosecutor demanded tapes of nine meetings. In response to both the prosecutor and the committee, Nixon claimed ex- ecutive privilege, arguing that turning over the tapes and docu- ments would invade presidential confidentiality. The executive privilege issue was decided in favor of the prosecutor and the tapes were turned over. Four of the tapes sought by the committee are among the ones given the prose- cutor.

Soy It Flowers With Originals from 1000 Blvd. NW FLOWERPHONE 366-1826 Hanson, Ity Mike Deuprce The slate appeals board will probably rule next week on the. egaltty of an amendment to the 1973 Cedar Rapids city budget, ward chairman Maurice Saringcr said Friday night. The board conducted a two- lour public hearing Friday on a irotest of the amendment filed >y a group known as Taxpayers Asking for Explanations The controversial amendment consisted of a permanent ransfcr of about from he airport operation fund to the airport construction fund, and a :emporary transfer of a similar amount to the construction fund rom the liquor fund. The transfers covered a million deficit in the construc- ion fund, most of which was created by land purchases near he airport in 1972. Appeals Board The appeals board, consisting of State Treasurer Baringer, Can't Repeat Administration Mistake: Jensen The Nixon administration should roll back gasoline prices n a way that does not strangle retail service stations, Martin Jensen of Hiawatha, told the AFL-CIO's Second district Com- mittee on Political Education at -larmony Lodge in Cedar Rap- ids Saturday. Jensen is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Sec- ond district congressman. "We can't repeat the mistake :he administration made last summer, when it froze gasoline prices at the pump but allowed refiners, pipelines and distribu- :ors to pass their costs e said. "The gasoline retailer was 'orced lo absorb those price in- creases, and hundreds were 'orced out of business. "This time, the price roll- backs should be absorbed by those below the retail level, particularly the refineries and crude oil producers who have reported huge profit increases in recent months. "Mandatory price cuts are clearly possible. How else can you explain the gasoline wars in the Midwest and that some DCS Moines retailers are selling gasoline for 19 cents a gallon less than others? If the price cuts are im- posed with some care, service station operators will be al- lowed a reasonable operating margin per gallon over and above their cost for gasoline.

That's the conclusion reached by a spokesman for the state- wide project which had it's public kickoff two weeks ago with a television spe- ;ial. "lowans have a good grasp of what they have in terms of resources in this state and where Iowa ranks among the said Dennis Nagel, co- ordinator for the Governor's Conference on Iowa. Persons watching the lowa- 1000 program Jan. 13 were asked to answer 23 questions pertaining to Iowa and its fu- ;ure, and Nagel said about persons have returned their questionnaires. "What we did learn was that most lowans don't have an ap- ireciation of the problems Iowa :aces in the Nagel said. But, he emphasized, that's what Iowa-2000 is all about. We wanted to show where Iowa is now and that it will take plenty of planning for Iowa to lave a bright Nagel added. He said the replies were :'not as many as we expected." Nagel said before the program as many as sent back the questionnaires. "The encouraging thing was that 75 percent of the people responding said they wanted to be contacted to take part in local Iowa-2000 Nagel noted. The TV special featuring Iowa- born Harry Rcasoncr was a kickoff to the unique exercise in "futurism" that hopefully will help shape Iowa's future 26 years from now. The local meetings through March will be followed by eight regional meetings in April and early May and then follows a statewide conference June 13-14 in Des Moines. GM Sets Recall Of Cars DETROIT (UPI) General Motors has begun notifying the owners of current-mode; intermediate-size cars of a pos- sible safety hazard involving the front seat belts. A spokesman said the cars may have been equipped with a defective belt retractor spring that might not lock in an ac- cident or during heavy braking, rendering the belts ineffective. No accidents of injuries have been reported. The cars involved in the recal include 1974 intermediate-size Chevroiets, Oldsmobilcs, Pon tiacs and Buicks built during November at the Framingham Mass., and Oshawa, Ont., as sembly plants. The retractor spring will be replaced at no cost to the owner. Canncy said the city complied with all legal requirements throughout the transaction. lie replied to charges by King most solvent cities in Iowa. The cKy is about million below its'legal debt limit, he said, and has a triple-A bond rating. In adjourning Ihe hearing, Baringer said Ihe board will onsider only Ihe way in which he transfer was accomplished, ot the wisdom of tlie transfer. This board is not supposed lo ome in here and tell the city o u n c i 1 how to spend its he said, "only to see il he laws have been followed." XM-SOUS was presented to j of fiscal irresponsibility by say- Jounty Auditor Merle Kopeljing Cedar Itaplds is one oHhe >rotes'ling the amendment. City Treasurer Bill Heins told .he board the budget amend- ments were a common practice it the end of the year, and said he from the liquor fund vill be replaced when federal iinds are received. Heins said the city expects to between and million reimbursement for lirport expenditures from the Aviation Administration vlien the airport master plan is approved. Baird King, 208 Twenty-eighth street drive SE, a member of TAX, said the amendment should not be approved until Auditor Smith completes a check into the manner in which .he land was purchased in 1972. Illegal Transfer TAX claims and illegal ransfer of funds took place vhen the land was purchased, ind has asked Smith to inves- igate the transaction. King also referred to a million bond issue for airport runway reconstruction that was approved in a referendum last vear. Only was needed 'or the project. King said the city should sell the remaining worth of bonds to reim- jurse the airport construction 'und, rather than transfer liquor 'unds. "I find it interesting that you, as a member of a taxpayer group, would favor going fur- ,'her into debt when there are other funds available Baringer told King. King said the people voted against a million bond issue n 1972, but approved the sale of the entire million last year. Will of Electorate "We believe in following the vill of the he said. Larry Walshire, 3001 street SW, secretary of Sixth TAX, said the budget amendment was llegal. The state code provides that copies of the budget must be available to the public at the mayor's office, the city clerk's office and the library at least 20 days before it is adopted, he said, and another section of the code says amendments must be handled in the same manner as he original budget. Only 11 days elapsed between he time the amendment wa proposed and adopted, Walshire said, and no copies were avail- able at the library. No Way "There- is no way they could lossibly have had them (the copies) available to the public 20 days ahead of he said. Walshire also called the air- port expansion "totally unrealis- tic" in view of the energy short- age, and said a public hearing on the matter should have been chased. "What I think we're doing right now is what we shouk have done in he said. City Attorney Dave McGuire said the 20-day notice does nol apply to budget amendments jnder the home rule bill. The protesters also criticized he decision to expand the air- port facilities, and the fact the city does not use liquor funds for detoxification programs. Original Plans Richard Horak, rural Swishcr said the city originally plannct to pay for the land purchase with funds from the million bond issue. It was only when the referendum on the bond issue failed to pass that the city saic it would pay for the land with federal reimbursement funds he said.
