LaPeters, Cedar Rapids police chief, said his department ''has made a positive effort through advertis- ing in the local papers lo reach blacks" about applying for posi- tions on the police force. He added that "if they don't apply, you can't hire them." .Mark Doolin, Cedar Rapids Human Rights Commission ad- ministrative assistant, reported that investigation has begun on a complaint by a woman who failed the test for police force applicants. The woman contended that the physical test discriminated against her. Doolin said his of- fice will be reviewing the test, what criteria are used for deter- mining who passes, how the test was prepared and administered. Test Defended Tom Ecker. coordinator of athletics for the Cedar Rapids school district, defended the test as non-discriminatory. "All it does is show who's strong enough to do the he said. Ecker collaborated with two University of Iowa physical edu- cation experts in preparing the test.

He said the commerce depart- ment reported that private in- dustry was saving the equiva- lent of 425 million barrels of oil a year. Taken together, those figures represent energy savings at a rate equivalent to about 1.4 mil- lion barrels a day or 8.2 percent of government forecasts of the "unconstrained demand" which might otherwise have been felt last month.
