Overweight The fine yet, was set on an overloaded truck caught on the Marquette-Prairie du Chiei Mississippi river bridge early Monday. Crawford county, Wisconsin, and Clayton county, Iowa, of- ficers stopped the truck loaded with lumber .as it crossed the bridge from the Iowa side. Truck Held The truck and its load were held in custody by Crawford county Sheriff Ray Childs. The truck belonged to Wa- goner Truck Line and was driv- en by Lawrence Kissler of Liv- ingston, Mont.

The fine for being over the weight limit is a basic the sheriff said, plus 7 cents per )ound of overweight if the truck line involved has had no pre- vious violation in Wisconsin dur- ng the year, or 10 cents a xnind if it has had a violation. The bond is the same amount as the fine set and truckers may either appear in court or forfeit the bond.

In Legislature County Fines 'Not By Frank Nye DES larger counties should get a 50-50 spli of the fines levied for viojatini city ordinances to help meet ad d i t i o n a 1 costs of operating courts under the new unifiet court bill. Counties, can't meet theii share of the costs on the presen 90-10 split which favors the cities. That's what Jean Oxley of Marion, chairman of the Linn county board of supervisors, told a house subcommittee on courts at a public hearing in the Iowa house cbamber Mon- day afternoon. She was one of 13 individuals who proposed changes in the new law, which took effect las' July 1. Chairman Oxley pointed out that cities now get to keep 90 percent of fines collected and 60 percent of the costs assessed. She said the county was not asking for any change in its 40 percent share of the costs but did feel it should get a 50-50 split of the fines. Bear Costs Chairman Oxley said that counties now bear the costs of housing courts which handle city cases, once paid by cities for municipal court systems. She presented figures showing costs of operating the unified court system for its first six months in Linn county. They showed the total net in- crease in cost to the county was A bigger split of the fine money would help reduce the county's share of the cost and would place "more of Ihe cost on the user of the court" rather than on the taxpayer. No Additional Funds "We are not asking in any way additional funding from the Mrs. Oxley said. "We are not asking additional tax from the citizens of Cedar Rapids'." Mrs. Oxley said the county's 10 percent share of municipal fines for the first six months the unified court was in opera- tion amounted to Its 40 percent of costs brought in State Rep. Donald Doyle (D Sioux who presided at the hearing, said the subcommittee would take proposals of Mrs, Oxley and of others who ap- peared into consideration in drafting corrective amendments to the new unified court law.

Iowa's only cross-state Am- ,rak train now runs from Burl- ington to Council Bluffs on Burl- ington tracks. Gluba said if Amtrak is to send another train through Iowa "it should follow the Davenport-Iowa C i I y D e s Moincs-Council Bluffs corridor because this is the most popu- lated route across Iowa and, therefore, the one most able and likely to support a passen- ger train."
