Hard To Take "That's hard to take." Woodward, who exchanged sharp words with the defense on a number of Occasions insisted "the law doesn't say you have to have a perfect trial, just a fair trial. "And the defendant received a fair trial." Woodward spoke to the issue that Hall might have been con- victed 'by an all-white jury be- cause he is black. He said, "I had hoped we could find that the crime was committed iby a white person. We would have had a lot less problems. Race shouldn't be aj target, but it shouldn't be aj shield either." County Attorney Carl Goetz, who assisted in the prosecution, said Wednesday morning, "re- ferences to testimony before the grand jury regarding Hall's al- leged preference for white girls or his possible membership in militant black groups were not garding obscenity only states that contemporary community standards shall determine what form obscenity laws should lake. He said the high court's rul- ing does not forbid a state legis- lature from prohibiting obscen- ity laws to be passed by local government units. The ruling came in response to a request from Sen. Eugene Hill (D-Newton) who questioned whether the slate could pro- hibit the enactment of obscenity laws by counties, cities or other local government units. Under the obscenity bill pass- ed by the 1974 Iowa legislature, municipalities, counties and oth- er local government units are prohibited from passing any ob- scenity laws and that the new state statute voids present local obscenity laws.

Iftcns This is your biff opportunity to Car Wrecked, Trooper Feels 'Double Lucky7 By Jerry Mursener ANKENY (UPI) Iowa highway patrol Trooper John Abeltins had the tornado duty Tuesday night and was stalk- ing the high winds in his pa- trol car. He nearly became a victim of one of the storms he was watching. Abeltins considers himself "double lucky" and his patrol car is totally demolished. Abeltins, a 15-year patrol veteran, was on duty when several storms hit the central Iowa area. He had traveled through five counties keeping a close eye on the storm. "It first hit one mile north of Ankeny on U., S. 69 and blew out both my he said, "but when I got into town, the wind turned my car completely around and the front windshield popped out." Abeltins said the other win- dows in his patrol also shat- tered and that "glass was fly- ing all over the place." Abeltins, who is an Ankeny resident, said a utility pole on a nearby corner then snapped and the "wires came down across the top of the car." I reached down and grabbed Ihe floor mal and wrapped it around my head and hugged the he said. "I just didn't think i was going to make it out of there alive." Abeltins said he finally grabbed the police radio and an Ankeny patrolman arrived. However, he was forced to stay in the car for about "30 minutes" until he was certain the electrical wires were down.
