Eberline DES MOINES (AP) A Ian use policy bill previously defeal ed, has been resurrected an passed 67-26 by the Iowa house. Before passing the measur Tuesday, Ihe house adde amendments designed- to mak it more palatable to urban rep resentatives. "Urban Sprawl" Hep. Dale Cochran (D-Eagl floor manager of th bill which now goes to the sen ate, said the bill would set up a framework to enable the state to control "urban lake care of industrial needs an< preserve class A farm land fo: production of food and fiber. "We are Ihe breadbasket o the Cochran said, "ani_ we know our land has been used unwisely. We know too that w have to do a better job of land use planning if we are lo fee the world in the future." The measure, however, was viewed askance by some members. Rep. Charles Strothman (R- New London) said the bill "takes away land that is co- veted by anofier. In other words, it breaks the Ten Com- mandments which say 'Thou shalt not steal'." Rep. Arlyn Danker (R-Min- den) complained that the bit "tries to go too far too fast. The people at home have been much concerned about land use. They want us to go slow in adopting a policy." "Proposes" Policy But Rep. James Middleswart (D-IndianoIa) emphasized Ihe legislation does not establish a land use policy. "It Bnly sets up a commission to propose he said. "The commission will make its rec- ommendations to the legislature one or two years from now and the policy will be set right here in this body." The bill would expand the present soil conservation de- partment into a department of soil conservation and land use. Five members appointed by the governor would be added- to the present eight appointive members of the soil conserva- tion commission, and.it would become the state land use policy commission. The state commission would adopt broad guidelines for a land use policy. There would be created a county land nsc policy commission in each county which would oversee the adoption of a proposed land use policy in each county, city and all other gov- ernmental subdivisions. The bill was voted down 39-40 on March 21, after an 11-hour debate which ran into the night and competed with the boys' state basketball tournament then underway. Many Absent 111 calling it up again, Cochran noted that 21 house members were absent when that vote was taken. He said the legislation was too important to Iowa to let die. The house, however, added; jmendments to assure more, ump about million into the 451 Iowa school districts to pro- vide a pay boost for teachers has received final legislative ap- jroval. The senate approved the rnfea- sure Tuesday 42-1 and sent it to he governor after the house approved it 86-1. Under the compromise a school district would.lose -state aid for only 50 percent of its en rollment loss in the budget year leginnlng next July 1. It would lose state aid for half )f the enrollment decrease up to 5 percent in the fiscal year tarting July andi75 per- cent of any decrease over 5 per- cent. The house and senfate had larted company on the question if how to handle school districts tvith declining enrollments. Coal Mine A measure to mil- ion for a state owned experi- mental coal mining [project has een approved by the senate ap- roprialions committee. The committee approved the measure, one of Gov. Robert Ray's proposals to, combat the nergy shortage, 23-J3 Tuesday. The measure would provid funds to find a way to tak sulphur out of Iowa coal and t demonstrate that the 'coal car be taken out of strip mines anc then the land restored to it original value. A measure designed to plu some loopholes in Iowa's 4E year-old securities law wa passed 47-0 by ihe se'nale Tues day. A motion to hold the bill in the senate, and not return it imme diately to the house was filed The bill earlier passed the housi 94-0, but has to be returnei because of scnate-adoptei amendments. The senate added an amend ment to the measure to allow judges to require persons con vicled of fraud in securities transactions to make restitution. Sen. Ralph McCartney (R Charles told the senate the bill was "developed in an ef fort to remedy some obvious, al most fraudulent practices im posed on our public in the state." He said one of the big prob- ems has been out-of-state jrokers selling lowans options ;o buy commodities futures. Present state law does not re- quire such persons to register with the state.

April 3, 19H Clairol Recalls Two Hair Sprays WASHINGTON Inc., announced Wednesday that it is recalling from the nation's store shelves about cans of aerosol hair spray, some containing a chemical recently linked to a rare form of liver cancer. The cosmetics firm said the request for a voluntary recall came from the Food and Drug Administration following re- ports that at least 10 industrial workers exposed to the chemi- cal, vinyl chloride, had devel- oped angiosarcoma. The two brands being recalled are Summer Blonde Aerosol Hah- Spray and Miss Clairol Aersol Hair Spray. The firm said vinyl chloride was used in the propellant of those two brands for about four years but was discontinued last summer. A Clairol spokesman said it was considered "extremely re- mote" that anyone using one of the sprays under normal con- ditions would be harmed.
