This year's edition of the show, "For the Love of is a visual evening of beauty in sight and sound. The Cedar Rhapsody chorus, 85 voices strong, under the di- rection of Sally Eggleston, was again the cornerstone of the production. Immaculately rehearsed and minutely disciplined, the large chorus appeared in two sections of the program. The stunning array of costumes provided Ihe patrons with an intriguing visu- al spectacle. Guests of the evening were the "Latest a quartet composed of a pair of blondes, a redhead and a brunette from In- dependence, Mo.

Also as guests were the Harmony Hawks barbershop chorus, under the direction of Len Bjclla and Chuck Traylor. Its repertoire of barbershop standards was leavened by a moving arrangement of a maj- estic sacred hymn melody, "Cool featuring the fine solo voice of Chuck Worsfold. Both large choruses combined forces for a pageant-like presen- tation of "01' Man with Vern Horsky as soloist for a grand finale.

Strauss eadcd off a challenge from the ate chairman by referring to e compliance panel the ques- on of how the new rules will pply to slate party activities csides delegate selection. The meeting took place within minimum of discord amid alls for unity and compromise. The rules require the states to tablish affirmative action pro- rams to encourage broad par- cipation "in Ihe delegate selcc- on process and in all party af- irs." Several chairmen complained at this could result in med- ing in their stale and local ac- vilies. The affirmative action pro- rams under which stales would evclop Ihcir delegate selection ans in 1975 before Ihe 1976 bal- e begins, are designed to re- acc the controversial 1972 pro- sion which led to virtual uolas for women, minorities and young people. SAFELY Representatives of burglar alarm companies complained Friday the system maintained by the police department repre- sents unfair competition and an invasion of free enterprise by city government. In a meeting with the city council and representatives of the police department, Robert Visek and Jess Fandel asked the city to get out of the alarm business. Visek is president of Mid- America Alarm Service Marion, and Fandel is president of Fandel, Inc., Cedar Rapids. Although they took no acion one way or another, councilmen appeared to be unimpressed by the arguments presented by the business men. LEAA Grant The controversy goes back to a grant from the Law Enforce- ment Assistance Administration (LEAA) in 1969 for installation of 350 silent burglar alarms. The program was intended to reduce crime by making alarms avail' able lo small businesses that could not otherwise afford (Item. When the grant expired, (he city tooR over operation of Ihe system. The police department is now operating 303 alarms on a non-profit basis, with a monih- ly charge of to each business. Systems purchased from and installed by private businesses, such as those operated by Visek and Faiidel, are wired into the same monitoring board at the police station as the alarms operated by the city. Monthly Charge The police departmenl charges monthly to the private com- panies for each alarm. The private business -men have complained bitterly about :he situation in the past because :hey say they are unable to compete on an equal basis with .he police department.

Iowa credit unions back 20 years.'-' The Cedar Rapids Democra who has served as a forme credit union manager and treas urer, said previous banking su perintendents have done "a they could" to eliminate 'an mistrust between the unions an the banking interests in th state, "There's something wron with having the department banking oversee the cred union regulation in this, state, Robinson said. "However, we'v been able to overcome this 'cor flict of interest in the past be cause' the superintendents hav done all they could to promot good communications." However, Robinson said Dunn who has served in an interim capacity in the past, "has faile to show to me" that he woul continue good relations an would change his apparent op Msition to credit unions in th state.

Robinson said part of the 'conflict of interest" problem could be alleviated with passagi )f the uniform consumer credi code, which cleared the senate tate government committee his week and is due for debate n the upper chamber later this Tionth.

He was lotd lie would receive tlie contract for installing the 350 alarms in Die original grant, he said, but Ihe contract later went to a New Jersey firm. Could Compete Visck, in reply (o a question by Safety Commissioner James Steinbeck, said lie probably could compete with Ihe city if he did not have to pay the charge to the police depart- ment. Even with the same rate, how- ever, he said competition would ae difficult because most men would rather work the police than with a private company. He said ho felt "oppressed" y the police in the matter, and said he was told by former Chief George Matias and former Asst. Chief Carl Badger that if he didn't stop "raising hell" tbout the situation, his alarms would be disconnected. Approved Alarms Visek, citing reasons why pri- vate industry should take over the system, said alarms in- stalled and maintained by his company are approved by Un- derwriters Laboratory and thus make the liiarm owner eligible for lower insurance rates. This isn't the case with police alarms, he said. Steinbeck said the city doesn't consider the alarm system a business, but instead believes it is a crime prevention function. Mayor Don Canney repeatedly asked Visek and Fandel why private companies should be al- lowed to take over the system. Counter Query They countered by asking why the police should be involved in private enterprise. Canney said the purpose of the program would be ill-served if the a'arms were too expen- sive for small businesses to in- stall. Visek said he could lower his rates if he had 300 alarms in service and did not have to pay a fee to the police department, but he said he cannot match the city's charge under the present system. Steering Failure In Pickups Told WASHINGTON (AP) The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has .re- ceived and verified several re- ports of steering failures in some Chevrolet and GMC pick- up trucks. were identified as 1971-72 Chevrolet models C-10, G-10 and P-10 and 1971-72 GMC mpdels C-1500, G-1500 and P- 500.
