I I Capron: Look for Wasfe Each Day Loren Capron said Tuesday that if he is elected Linn comity supervisor he will "each day in office, without being short-sight- ed, question unreasonable waste expenditures." Speaking to the Jaycee Toast- masters, the candidate for the Democratic nomination for su- pervisor, said the frustrations and determination of working people and older people en- couraged him to run for office. A real estate salesman, Ca- pron said he sells homes pri- marily in the to range and that owners of these homes are the primary taxpay- ers of the county. For a year and a half, he said, he has attended most meetings of the board of super- visors "as somewhat of a lob- byist for these people." He cited an instance in which he en- couraged more efficiency in the administration of the ment of social services. depart- Condemns Officials' Inaction James Reyn olds, Democratic candidate fo the nomination for Iowa attor ney general, has condemnec the inaction of officials of botl parties for not taking action tc prevent what he characterize as the destruction of the povertj programs of the Sixties.

S. house of representatives in the Second district, told the Wyom- ing Jaycees Tuesday, "If a can- didate is to be successful this fall he must not write off any community regardless of its size. "And to do so will be inviting certain defeat this November. This is as true for Wyomig as it is for Cedar Rapids since the voters have the right to know who and what they arc voting for on a first-hand basis. "Otherwise, there would be no need for a people-to-people cam- paign. The day of b'ombarding the voters with last minute rhet- oric and-propaganda is over." Ginsberg: Adopt Public Defender Stanley Ginsberg, candidate for the Democratic nomination for Linn county supervisor, Tuesday proposed establishment of a public defender office to replace the present system of appointing lawyers for the in- digent. Ginsberg told members of the Hawkeye Labor Council that "The cost of the court-appointed lawyers is such that Linn county is spending an excessive amount of tax dollars for a ser- vice which can he providec more efficiently for less money With the utilization of a perm; nent staff of public defenders people can be served by law yers specializing in defense.

The bill now goes back to the senate, where it was passed last year, 39 to 0, for consideration of an amendment tightening up the bill so revenue may not be used for maintenance purposes. The bill authorizes school dis- tricts to us ethe money to repair or replace buildings, as well as to build new structures to which the present law is limit- id. Otto Wiedersberg, secretary for the Cedar Rapids Communi- ty school district, said the bill will clarify uses of the school- house fund.
