Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Justice Sysfem Attracts Women Bv GORDON HANSON Asswioled Pieu Wn'er MOINKS. Iowa "My mnthiT didn't pressure me into what 1 shuuld pietty Karen Oauuiii. "She jusl had a lot of patience and prayed a lot." The prayers helped, because Miss C'lausun is succeeding in the Iowa justice system a profession noted fur its male dominance. Miss Clauson, 28 and single, is one of the top employes of the Iowa ('rime Commission, Another three women, including a criminologist and one who holds two masters' degrees, also have high posts "These gals are performing." says eominission director Ceorge Orr. "They can meet their counterparts in the crimi- nal justice system which is practically all male and do their jobs well. They've got respect." "We hire women as well as men because we want people for what they can do. Somebody didn't have to put a national law on us and say we had to have so many women em- ployed." Program 'Manager Miss Clauson, a pert with dark brown hair and searching blue eyes, has a criminology background and is the commission's program manager. Males head the agency's other two divisions. More than million in federal grants for area and lo- cal crime commissions crossed her desk in fiscal 1973 and the figure for fiscal 1974 will be higher. "The reduction of crime is what we're all about." she says. "All of our activities are geared to that objective." "We deal with the eight area crime commissions, and all state agencies such as the bureau of criminal investigation, department of public safety, the attorney general, drug abuse authority, the supreme court and the department of social services." The commission processes applications for grants from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration It also sees to it that anti-crime programs and plans are implemented and completed. Miss Clauson views her role in law enforcement as that of a catalyst. "The commission has worked toward using LEAA funds for programs that have real impact on the criminal justice she says. "If you improve the system, and make it function better, you will have a reduction in crime." Supervises Specialists Miss Clauson, a 1967 graduate of the University of Iowa, has a secretary and supervises a staff of "five specialists and one application coordinator who insures that the work that comes in here by the tons gets to the right place." "The biggest thing I do is administer and make sure ev- erything is going right." She isn't a women's libber, but believes "females are The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Taes., Aug. 29.

"These gals are performing, they've got says commission director George Orr. From left: Carol Augustine, Barbara Baum, Karen Clauson and Susan Deagle. just as capable as anybody." She started with the commis- sion in 1970 as a programs analyst, then became a plans developer "in charge of writing, compiling and submitting annual action plans to the LEAA." Her present job may be the resull of getting "shoved into the types of discussion that allows you to supervise and get into decision-making she says. "I love it, I suppose it's because I've always had a hard time keeping my mouth shut. "When you're going to college, or even high school with regular academic courses, you're brought up in the same ways exactly like guys. Then all of a sudden you're supposed to switch to the absolute homemaker type. "I don't think there are very many females anymore who like grandmother sit at home. "Bless people like grandma, but the world is big enough and there are enough things to do that there's room for everybody to do whatever makes them happy." Miss Clauson entered the field of criminology "because I was very interested in the way the criminal justice system works." "I've always loved laws, such as common law in England and how we took it to America except in Louisiana where they have the Napoleonic Code which is its basic for state law." "Along the correctional side of it, Ihc prisons system. 1 thought there had to be a better way than what we were doing. "You can't take somebody (criminal) out of iheir envir- onment and into an abnormal environment (prison) for. say five years, and expect them to gn back home and live normal- ly. "That is really the basis of community-based corrections which we arc working with." Also holding responsible positions with the commission are Barbara Baum, a criminal justice statistical analyst; Susan Deagle, administrative assistant; and Carol Worlan Augustine, assistant plans developer. Mrs. Baum, 26, has a degree in sociology from Drake university and a master's degree in criminology from the University of Missouri. Mrs. Augustine, 24, has a bachelor of arts degree in soci- ology' from Simpson college. Mrs. Deagle, 3D, holds a bachelor of arts degree in con- stitutional history from C. W. Post college, a master's in the same field from the University of Wisconsin, another mas- ter's in special education from Long Island university, and has completed Radcliffe college's publishing procedures course.

Fords Settle In Capitol WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford and his family have settled into the White House and spent the first eve- ning at their new home enter- taining. The Fords hosted a private cocktail reception Monday night for 60 secret service men and their wives.

A new detail of secret serv- ice look over Monday. The family's belongings were moved from their sub- urban home in a single van by the time the President and Mrs. Ford returned from a day's trip to Chicago Monday.

Other furniture and furnish- ings will go into storage while the Fords rent their Alexan- dria home during their White House occupancy, which Ford said probably will be 2V2 years.

VKRNON ROAD SK DKAK ABBY: My problem is a small one, but on second thought, are bad manners ever a small problem9 My husband and I would like your opinion of this situa- tion: We have two different families whom we invite to our home for dinner occasion- ally. (Not together.) The minute we sit down at the table, both fathers of these families ask one of their children to say the grace. Abby, am 1 out of line to think this shows extreme bad manners on their part? I al- ways thought it was up to the host and hostess to decide if grace was to be said at their table. And if so, by whom. Please print your reply. Perhaps these men or their wives will read your column and learn something. Or I may learn something if I am wrong. SOCIAL GRACE DEAR SOCIAL: You are not wrong. It's the host's or host- ess's perogative to decide if grace shall be said at his (or her) table, and If so, by whom. DEAR ABBY: I have a unique problem. I have been married to Elmer for six years. We are both in our late twenties. All my life I have been extremely overweight, but this last year, through a friend's inspiration, I was motivated to lose 120 pounds. (Yes, one hundred and twenty pounds.) Throughout my diet Elmer never indicated that he ap- proved or disapproved, but now that my life has changed as much as my figure, Elmer has decided he doesn't like the "new me" and wants me to regain the weight I sacrificed so much to get rid of. Perhaps I should mention that Elmer is fat and we used to have a lot of fun together eating all the things we shouldn't but those days are gone for me. Now Elmer feels betrayed and I feel guilty, because when he married me he really like me the way I was. I am torn between staying thin, which I am so proud to be or letting myself go, to please Elmer. FORMERLY FAT DEAR FORM: For heaven's sake, stay thin. Join the Ov- ereater's Anonymous and let them help yon. And take Elmer with you. They are a great, loving, caring fellow- ship. If Elmer doesn't flip for them and their program, I'll eat my caloric counter.
