Harold Hushes ill-Iowa- plans to dona'p to the public liis personal papers covering his last 12 years in public of- fice, an aide said. H u gh e s administrative aide. Park Rinard. has been in Iowa looking at three possi- ble facilities for housing the papers, and said Tuesday he expects Hushes to decide ''fairly soon" where ilie papers should go. Under consideration are Ihe state historical building in Oes Moines and the Centennial building in Iowa City, both South Tama Board Considers Federal Director TAMA The possible hiring of a director of federal pro-. grams for the South Tama school system' has been dis- cussed and debated at two re- cent meetings of the school board and tabled both times. However, the board has au- thorized Supt. Jerry Nichols to obtain information and financial: data concerning employment of a director who would take the responsibility of applying for government fluids, accounting, evaluation of programs and making reports. According to Nichols, the South Tama district is receiv- ing approximately pel- year in federal funds for pro- grams to provide for special needs in education ol the dis- trict's children. Rex Cobet, board chairman, said, "The federal money has been appropriated and it won't be turned back. If we don't use it. someone else will. The work load here is heavy and if we continue the federal programs, we need more help to run them." Nichols said that if South Tama didn't get federal funds, many programs which benefit the children couldn't be offered them. N'ichols explained a certain percentage of each federal fund is allowed for adminis- trative expense. This would lie used for the salary of a feder- al projecls director. The director's salary would not he paid by the South Tama dis- trict, hut rather from federal funds. Duties of administration and details of the programs up to now have been divided among several members of the ad- ministrative staff with some lack of coordination. Nichols feels that with so many projects funds, one person should be responsible. "The system becomes more complex' each year and exper- tise is needed lo run it elficienl- ly and keep everything in order. Someone with a Master's degree in curriculum rather than ad- ministration is preferable, with possibly a salary of between .SI2.0IIII and per year." Nichols said.

Rinard said Ihe papers in- clude Hughes' correspondence w i t h Presidents, including those expressing opposition to President Lyndon Johnson's Vietnam war policy when Hughes was governor. Also included would be speeches and investigations marie by Hughes as a senator, such a.s his probes into un- authorized defense depart- ment bombing and falsifying of records in Vietnam. Hughes served three terms as governor of Iowa prior to being elected lo the U. S. h. 1968. Rinard said he will make a recommendation to Hughes on w b i c h facility can best process fne papers and make rhem accessible to the public, but declined to say w'hal that recommendation would be. Donation of the papers is no longer tax deductible and Hughes not take such a deduction if it were still legal. Rinard said. For TipSon i TIPTON The city council j here shared Ihe wage-earners' j pangs of loo many bills and looi litlle money Monday night. j Council members attempted to iron out a solution to a tem-i p o r a r y financial problem brought on by inopportune tim-j ing in the arrival of several; large bills.
