He spoke to an "lowans for. Stanley" coffee meeting Wednesday evening at Ottumwa. "No person -can serve two Stanley said. "A U.S. senator is paid a generous full- time salary and should devote full tune to his job." Stanley, a Iwayer, made a public commitment last January that if elected as U.S. senator, he will from his law firm and will not have any con- nection with any law practice. Stanley reported that at least 69 congressmen admitted receiv- ing income from a law firm in 1972.

Feld said, "the current law, commonly known as OSHA, is an albatross around the neck of the. small, independent busi- ness man since it contains many unreasonably expensive and punitive measures. "In addition, it increases the overhead of the business man and forces him to pass the add- ed cost on to the Feld continued. "While it is safe to say that everyone desires occupational safety and health, such meas- ures must be reasonable and Feld concluded. Senate May Junk Sections On Consumer Protection By Val G. Corley DES MOINES (AP) Sena Republican leaders are repo ledly ready to junk consume protection sections on a bill establish an Iowa credit code. Instead, they are expected go only with a measure to crease credit interest rales. Senate Majority Leader Cli ton Lamborn (R-Maquoketa told senators late Wednesda that the bill to rewrite Iowa credit laws will he delaye again, until some time ne> week. He said a mysterious amendment being prepara would not be ready until a least noon Thursday. Lamborn would not tell new- men what would be contained in :he amendment, but several Re publican senators said it woul strike most consumer proteetio measures in the bill and se only a new interest rate. Interest Rate But the sources said the max mum interest rate to be finall set on revolving credit and in stallment credit is still unde debate. Most felt the maximum vould eventually be set at ei her 15 percent or 18 percent. The senate debated the credi >ill for two days last week an hen delayed the measure unti his week because of strong op losing views on the measure. Senate Republican leader isked lobbyists on .each side o he issue to try to -work for a compromise over the weekend 3ut the lobbyists were unable t lompromise. Merchants claim they need to harge higher interest rates on redit than the 9 percent al S.

Devac of linneapolis also bid on the win- ow job.

R. 0. homas, Tama, was awarded the contract for the electrica work in the Chelsea Elementary and the hallway in the junior high school at Toledo on his low bid of for the two build- ings.

Hardon's also bid on the tile job. The board accepted the bid of Subias Hardware of Cedar Rapids for for replace- ment of seven doors at buildings n Tama, Montour, Chelsea and South Tama high school, all out- side doors.

(Fritz) Hall Tama, to furnish school bu transportation for the 1974-7 school year for Thi: includes five regular routes am one kindergarten route, plu for the Sac and Fos school route which is paid from Johnson-O'Malley federal funds. Hill, who has had the contrac with the school district for sev eral years, notified the boan that for the next year he wil run his buses as usual. However, after that he in- tends to eliminate one bus route per year until'he has phased out Siis operation com- pletely. The school district will then operate all of its own buses. The district has been operating about 22 buses each year. Hill has furnished his own rases and his own drivers for lis contracted routes. He will be out of the school transportation agreement in six years by this plan of route elimination. The board, in another matter, a c c e p t e d' the resignation' of Dorothea Van Tiger, a junior high science teacher, in accor- dance with its retirement age >olicy. Mowed by an Iowa supreme court decision last fall. Pre- viously, many charged 18 per- cent on both the installment credit-credit card-type account and installment credit. A sludy committee had beei working on a consumer credi protection bill for some time and added the interest rates that measure. The senate was to have re- sumed debate on the measuri Wednesday but both Democrats and Republicans Held politica caucuses to discuss the measure first. Consumer Protection Reportedly, rnany Republi cans in their closed caucus ar >ued that some consumer pro- :ection sections in the bill wonlt jlace merchants at a disadvan- tage. At the same time, some Dem- ocrats in their open caucus ar- ;ued that they wanted more consumer protection than the )ill provided that the bill was weighted heavily toward the merchant. Lamborn said afterwards the Republicans would be present- ng an amendment being pre- )ared, but said the contents vould be secret until it is ex- )lained in another caucus. Some Republicans who at- tended the caucus Wednesday predicted the senate would have no trouble passing the bill with the consumer protec- tion section stricken, but others said they would-not vote for it without the con- sumer protection. Reportedly a wide, gap exists in what the interest rate should >e, but most say the maximum nte'rest rate should be in- creased.

Under terms of the bill, which now goes to the house appropri- believe (hat there are many who couldn't afford to pay for a medical education at the university if the tuition was doubled. The house sub-committee met without its seriate counterpart for the first time in several weeks Thursday. Only a few weeks ago, the joint sub-committee approved ihe governor's recommendation for a appropriation for COMS for 1974-75, including ations committee, 40 percent of to help finance interns freshman class at COMS for the next three years must be Iowa residents. The vote came after Rep. Keith Dunton (D-Thornburg) delivered a stinging attack on the University of Iowa college of medicine for not producing more doctors who stay in Iowa. "We've giveri the college of me'dicine everything it ever wanted in the way o! money and Dunton said, "and I am sadly disappointed in the number of doctors it produces who stay in Iowa." Cites Tuitions Dunton said he has informa- tion that tuition at the college of medicine at Creighton universi- ty at Omaha is a year and it is at COMS. Yet when we talk about dou- bling the tuition at the universi- ty's college of medicine, we're told it will keep the poor boys Dunton said, "even though hey have about applicants a year for the medical school." At a recent meeting Rep. Robert K r e a m e r (R-Des the sub-committee's chairman, suggested that the S870 a year tuition for residents at the college of medicine be doubled to help meet rising costs of education. Dunton said it is impossible in his area to get young peo- ple to work in the summer at anywhere from to an hour so it's hard for him to and residents. But at that time house sub- committee members indicated they might favor merging the appropriation to million. Defends School Rep. Glenn Brocket! (R- Vlarshalllown) came to the de- 'ense of the university's medical school, saying an increasing number its graduates are staying in Iowa. He .said recent news stories indicate that 24 of the present class have indicated they will remain in Iowa to practice com- pared to 18 a year ago. But, he lamented, 24 of a class of 160 isn't too much of a Dercentage. The university presently inrolls about 160-165 medical students a year and eventually plans for 175. COMS classes are about 120 a year. Cedar Rapids Rites Set for J.
