Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa BIG GEORGE! Members of the cily council, i all three meetings at which the urban renewal board and Oak project was discussed this week. met Kansas City first, while Mrs. is Brooks said. Varner favored the proposal' submitted by Oak Hill Hill liaison committee to proposals for a fcdcrally-sub- slcwart "constnjcTioii "GO. sidizcd homing project, but de- layed choosing among six pro- posals until next week. The group plans to meet again next Thursday to make a deci- sion, after more opinions can be jathercd from members of the liaison committee. Only two committee members Viola Gibson and June Varner were able to attend "The moat leaks." Courthouse Kopel Promises GOP a Tape of Linn Voter List Linn Auditor Merle Kopel said Thursday he will supply to the chairman of the Republican county central committee a copy of a computer tape con- taining voter registration data. Kopel, a Democrat, said polit- ical' considerations were not in- volved in his hesitancy in turn- ing over the tape to the chair- man, noting he also had refused to turn over a tape to several Democratic candidates. Acting Republican Chairman Frances B. Palmer earlier this week said the tape was desired to encourage attendance at the party's neighborhood caucuses. Kopel sought a county attor- ney's opinion on whether a statute requiring that free copies of the "original regis- tration record" be given the chairman of each party means that a copy of the com- puter (ape must be supplied. He said it has been the prac- tice to supply a computer print- out. He expressed concern that the tape might fall into the hands of some commercial group and that the list of names might be used commercially. He noted that while he trusted party leaders, the parties would have to go to some commercial group to make use of the tape. The county attorney asked for an attorney general's opinion and was told last week the audi- tor must furnish a copy of the tape, if the party so requests. If the tape is more expen- sive, under the opinion, the difference in cost must be paid by the party, Kopel said. However, he said the cost of a printout is less, because print- outs are run for the parties at the same time as regular print- outs, thus costing only the amount for the additional paper, about ?15. The cost of copying a com- plete tape will be about he said. He said copies of the tape will be supplied only to the parties, not to candidates. Young C.R. Man Is Accused of Larceny, Breakin Ronald Yarrington, 19, has been charged with larceny and breaking and entering. Yarrington was booked into the county jail with a Third street SE address, but the- com- plaining witness in the case, Allen B. Wilson, Orchard trailer court, said Yarrington lived at the trailer court. The 51-year-old complainant, who signed the information in magistrate court alleged a car ramp valued' at was found in Yarrington's front yard at the trailer court. When Wilson started to take the ramp Jan. 29, Yarrington allegedly, jumped on his back, knocked him down and started to choke him. The defendant was released from the county jail on posting bond.
