Asked Refund of 97 Cenfs, But Got Much More GRINNELL (AP) When Bruce Sears, 18, Grinnell, wrote a Chicago firm for a 97- cent refund he received more than he expected more. Sears said he had mis- calculated the postage on an order to a photographic sup- ply firm. After realizing his error, he wrote the company for a refund. A few days later, "I found they had sent me a check for said Sears, a Grinnell high school senior. However, he said the check could not be cashed because it had "not valid for more than 55" printed at the bottom. Sears said he probably would not have cashed it anyway "because that would not have been honest." Sears had planned to keep the check as a souvenir, but now plans to return it to the company "because their book- keeping must be awfully fouled up." JOLIET LIVESTOCK JOLIET, III.

"The Russians have a perfect record they have never re- paid any Stone said. "The Export-Import bank is supposed to be for responsible developing nations and Russia is neither a developing nation nor a responsible debtor." The agriculture department said Russia has made install- ment payments "right on time" since getting a pack- age of credit to buy U.S. grain in July, 1972. That loan was under a dif- ferent program, was made at regular commercial interest rates and was for three years. Regents Adopt Grievance Policy AMES state board of regents has adopted a policy clarifying the procedure used by regents' employes with work- related grievances. Regents rules provide that at each step of the grievance pro- cedure, an employe may be represented by one or two per- sons of his own choosing. The rules also provide tha the employe and his representa live may take time off frorr work to investigate the griev ance without loss of pay. The board adopted a polic; rriday stating that time off wil )e granted only after a prelim nary meeting between the em )loye and his supervisor. Les Chisholm, business agen or the American Federation o State, County and Municipa mployes, protested the action "Removing the right to in a grievance before i s presented will make it prac ically impossible to resolve thi grievance at the first Chisholm said.

Robert lay to request a review of rec- immended salaries for state de- lartmenl heads. Board President Mrs. H. Rand Pctcrsen, Harlan, said the salary recommended by Hay and Associates, Chicago, for re- gents' Executive Secretary R. Wayne Richey was too low. The Hay report was commis- sioned in early 1973 to recom- mend salaries for legislative and judicial employes. Gov. Robert Ray also asked for rec- ommendations for all state de- partment heads. The report was the basis for Ray's salary recommendations to the Iowa legislature. Members of the board agreed with Mrs. Petersen that Ri- :hey's salary was too war.

Speaking at the college of law at the University of Iowa, Guido identified crises in the political process, in law enforcement and the judicial process, and in the legal profession itself. Citing the strong bill for pub- lic financing of political cam- paigns passed this week in the senate, Guido noted "only by removing the dependence of candidates on private funds are you going to prevent future Wa- :ergates." Guido cited the naivete of fed- eral law enforcement officers in facing the Watergate crimes. For example, he said Henry Pe- tersen in the department of jus- tice could not believe the Water- gate breakin was.any more than a burglary by underlings in the Nixon administration. Yet, in- vestigations revealed the Water- gate schemes were discussed by Nixon's closest political ad- visors, and that the former head of the FBI destroyed evidence.
