Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Flu Has Little C.R.; Other The 1974 riu which has hit sev- eral northeast Iowa counties in the eyes, ears, iiosc and throat has not showed up to a signifi- cant extent in the Cedar Rapids area. While census founts arc up at bath Cedar Rapids hospitals, of- ficials say it is not because of influenza. Likewise, Cedar Hapids Com munity school officials say there has been little absenteeism be- cause of flu. The latest report Courthouse Three Sentenced In Linn Court On Guilty Pleas Allen W. Burggraf, John C. Fichtner and Thomas G. Jones have been sentenced in Linn district court on guilty pleas lo charges against them. Burggraf received a sentence of up to seven years in the reformatory at Anamosa on a charge of false uttering of a check. The Security, Colo., man was accused of pass- ing an insufficient-fund check for at a Cedar Rapids department store Oct. 17. Judge Louis Schultz recom- mended that reformatory of- ficials consider giving the de- fendant a psychiatric evaluation and treatment during his incar- ceration. Fichtner received a suspend- ed sentence of up to seven years in the reformatory at Anamosa on a charge of false uttering of a check. He was placed on probation. The 23-year-old Cedar Rapids man was accused of passing a bad check for at a Cedar Rapids jewelry store last June 6. As a condition of probation, Judge James Carter ordered jhat Fichtner serve ten days in the county jail and make resti- tution on bad checks he had written. Jones was fined on a charge of second-offense drunk driving.: Judge .Harold Viktor1' ordered the 35-year-old Marion man, to enroll at his'own expense, in. a drinking driver's Community The judge said Jones' driver's license is revoked for an indefi- nite period and until successful completion of the course. Jones was arrested in Marion last 'Dec. 9 after allegedly driv- ing erratically. Impact in Areas Worse showed only 21 cases of flu out of a public school population iere of nearly Few Cases Public Health Nurses, who service the city's parochial schools, report only a few cases of the 1974 flu variety. "There may be cases where a nother kept a child home be- cause of car ache, upset stom- ach or some other ailment close- ly allied to said one school official, but it hasn't been reported to us as the flu." Dr. John Jacobs, an officer of he Linn County Medical Soci- ety, said he is unaware of any nfluenza problem yet in the Cedar Hapids area. The eases which have been he said, are marked >y muscle aches, alternating Fever and chills and sometimes cough, it lasts three to five days. Identification Dr. Robert Mcrrick of Gutlen- where the flu has reached severe levels, said there has )een no positive identification of the type of flu which forced closing of schools in that area. Across the river in Wisconsin, ic said, it has been identified as Strain B. The Guttenberg vari- ety has included headache, sore throat, runny nose, fever and a general weakness and aching. The state health department said school absenteeism has ex- ceeded ten percent in Clayton Fayette, Mitchell and Dickinson counties. Cpuncil Expected To Okay Sylvan Lane Addition The city" council is expected to approve the preliminary plat of Sylvan lane addition at its regu- lar meeting Wednesday morn- ing. The area, being developed by Jerome Padzensky, has caused controversy because the city en- gineering department recom- mended the plat not be ap- proved unless it includes city water and sewer facilities, in- stead of individual wells and septic tanks. The- property is outside the city limits on Cottage Grove av- 'enue SE, just cast of Indian road. The county has approved the plat, but approval is also required from Cedar Rapids be- cause the land is within two miles of the city limits. The use of city services would necessitate annexation of the land, either immediately or as soon as the land is contiguous with the city. Padzensky and residents of the surrounding area oppose an- nexation. A resolution has been pre- pared for action Wednesday ap- proving (he plat, subject to con- ditions recommended bv the planning commission. Use of city services is not one of the conditions, nor is annexation. Credit Union at Cryovac Elects The Cryovac credit union elected officers at its 20th anni- versary dinner-dance Saturday.

Sheriff, Chamber Check Securities Sales Contacts Several rural residents have been contacted by persons who claim lo be securities agents and offer investment opportuni- ties paying 12 or 14 percent in- terest yield, sheriff's depart- ment and Chamber of Com- merce officials report. Linn Sheriff Walter Grant said his office has received sev- eral calls in the last couple weeks. The agents are asking for money immediately, he report-, ed, causing suspicion among those contacted. No Immediate Need Normally, such an agent would not require that money be provided on such short notice, Grant said. Sheriff's deputies have had no luck tracking down the agents as descriptions provided have generally been vague, he added. The state department of bank- ing and the state securities divi- sion in Des Moines have been contacted, he said. Chamber Bureau Harold Ewoldt, Chamber as- sistant executive vice-president, said the Chamber business con- sumers bureau has also re- ceived an inquiry from a woman whose sister made such an investment. The field of investment is a complicated and specialized one, he warned. "Persons considering invest- ments should consult well-es- tablished investment counselors, their bankers and lawyers be- fore entering into an investment he said. "There are inherent risks in investments and normally the higher the rate of return, the higher the risk." -i1 Fined On Tax Charge DAVENPORT Anton H.
