Robert Ray of "dragging his feet" in appointing two people representing public employes lo a state board. The accusation conies from Sen. William Palmer, Des Moines, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor. When the 1973 legislature approved increased benefits to public employes under the Iowa Public Employes' Retire- ment System, it also added two public employes to the IPERS investment board. The two public employes, who must be covered by IPERS, are to serve as ex-of- ficio members. Although the changes in the law became effective last July I, Palmer charged the gover- nor has not yet appointed the two public members. Palmer claims this is a "violation of the law" and said "the governor must be laughing at us Wythe Willey. executive as- sistant to Gov.
