Pass Pass Opening in Iowa law which considers both population and court work load as factors. Degnan's appoint- ment gives Iowa S4 district court judges. District 1A, in which Degnan vill serve, includes Aliamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Winneshiek, Delaware and Dubuque coun- ies. Degnan is a graduate of the University of Iowa law college and served as Clayton county attorney in the mid-1950s. He is a Guttenberg native and a vet- eran of World war II and the Korean conflict. The appointment is effective immediately, with the initial :erm to expire Dec. Annual salary for a district court judge is and will be increased July 1 to not shuffle, deal or even cut the cards. This didn't keep Merlin from making some really as- tounding playa There was nothing astounding about his king of diamonds lead against three natrump. Anyone likes to lead from king-queen- jack-10. Lancelot ducked. Merlin con- tinued the suit and Lancelot hac to win. He promptly played the ace of clubs and continued with the jack. Now Merlin, went into a trance. When he came out of the trance he had figured out what to do. He went up with his king and led a heart. This line of play was the only way to defeat the contract. II showed that Merlin had figured out exactly what Lancelot wai trying to do or had seen the peerless knight's hand in his trance. Had Merlin ducked the seconc club, a third club lead woulc have set up two tricks in dummy. Had he cashed his dia- monds, Lancelot would have discarded his queen of clubs and unblocked the suit for dummy. r TILL The bidding has been: 18 West North East South Pass IT Pass Pass You, South, hold: What do you do now? either one notrump or two clubs. We have a slight preference for the two club call. TODAY'S QUESTION You do bid two clubs and your partner bids three clubs. What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow Last August voters defeated the same issue. Only 50 percent! of the" voters favored the propos- al at that time. The bonds will be issued for the completion of athletic fields and lighting for track, football, >aseball and Softball. The school was built about hree years ago and most of the jrading for the athletic fields was done at that time. Ed fiustoff To Keep Center Point Post CENTER POINT A employe who has pled guilty .to receiving gifts and gratuities will' remain on 'the city's payroll. After lengthy discussion in ex- ecutive session last week, the city council here voted Wednes- day night to retain Ed Gustofi but refusing to "condone" his actions. Gustoff paid a fine on the charge in magistrate's court last month. Speaking for the council Charles Ferguson said "the council feels the matter is closed." Gustoff, head of the city's water and sanitation depart- ment, was accused of taking a portable television set from a chemical firm that does busi ness with the city. Center Point Council Changes Meeting Day CENTER POINT The town council has changed its regular meeting nights. In an ordinance Wednesday night, the council changed the meeting night from the third Wednesday to -the second Wednesday of the month. The time p.m. will remain the same. City Clerk Harry Brookman said he needs the earlier date in order ito pay bills more prompt- ly, and that for many years the council had met on the second Wednesday, only changing the date within the last six years because of council members' wishes. ng further legal study and ac- ion on a similar ordinance in Cedar Rapids. The proposed ordinance would ban through use of non-designat- ed routes (primarily west Blairs Ferry road) to all vehicles over five tons not involved in "farm- to-market" traffic. The council, which had given the ordinance first reading April 4, passed second reading Wednesday night before approv- ing the delay on a 3-2 ballot with Mayor Dale Guthridge casting the tie-breaking vote. Three Readings The ordinance needs three readings for final passage. It would then become effective after proper publication. Councilmen Martin Bruns and Jerry Seifried lined up behind the delay, while Jack Wyrick and Gene Vanderlonden voted against it. Carl Anderson was not present. Bruns offered th nance needed re-examination by the city attorney to review whether it did hi fact follow the intent of the council in banning JllCllL Ul UIC ill utuilU-iig ...m wtuui specific traffic from west Blairs voted to offer for pur- Design Approval AMES The federal highway administration has given design approval for the proposed im- provement of highway 218 in Benton county.
