Directors The real estate promoters al- ready have 66 acres zoned com- mercial in the area where a shopping center could be built without further action by the city council, a TSP spokesman said. The group, however, ques- tions the feasibility, the effect on the community and the cost to the taxpayers of rezoning an additional 21 acres as requested by the developers, he said.

"The information will be presented to the city council at the May 8 public hearing on the question." Statement The TSP statement expressed concern in five basic areas: 1. Cost to the taxpayer in terms of municipally provided services, such as street con- struction, traffic creased police and fire protec- tion. 2. Continuation of "leap frog" zoning which leaves residential areas on the fringe of, or sand- wiched between, commercial tracts. 3.

Suit Possible if Secretaries Ignored DBS MOINES (UPI) Sen. Minnette Doderer (D-Iowa City) said Tuesday the Iowa legisla- ture could be subject to a sex discrimination suit if lawmakers fail to change a proposed pay schedule for legislative em- ployes and secretaries. Mrs. Doderer said a provision in the pay proposals singles out floor secretaries of all house and senate members and added, "This is a Title 7 of rights law." The Iowa City Democrat said at least one secretary is ready to file the discrimination suit against the legislature if law- makers adopt the pay schedule. Both Democrats and Republi- cans held caucuses earlier in :he day on the proposed plan and Mrs. Doderer .said from all ndications "they don't plan to change anything and will con- jnue to make the secretaries a separate entity." clear violation of the federal equal Your thinking determines your experience.
