There must be timely ap- plication ami a. Uiat services of a psychiatrist are "reasonably needed and nec- essary" to the defense, the court said.

In southwest Iowa for sev- eral public appearances, Scherlc offered Ford as a discussion topic with report- ers, saying, "It's difficult to imagine the change in Wash- ington since he became Pres- are cordial, there isn't the shame there has been.

Rock Island Line Shippers To Gather Service Dafa By Tom Fruehling INDEPKNDENCK The Iowa Rock Island Shippers Assn. and others interested in up-grading rail service on the line between Cedar Rapids and West Union decided here Wednesday night to initiate a survey of shipping patterns. Don Neumeyer of Walker, secretary-treasurer of the group, agreed to collect statis- tics from shippers and re- ceivers along the Rock Island line as to use of the service in the last four years. This information will he compiled into a report by (lie Cedar Rapids-Marion area Chamber of Commerce, ac- cording to Chamber executive Vice-president Robert Faxon. Estimate Faxon said that once an estimate of what use has been made of the line and what service is projected in the future, the state energy council will be asked for ass- istance in improving the line. Present service, commented Faxon, is and many shippers have turned to trucks to deliver their products. For one thing, there is a weight limit on the 75-mile stretch of track. This embargo does not allow shippers to make use of "jumbo" hoppers, said Faxon. Poor Condition Faxon also noted that the poor condition of the track forces freights to travel at a reduced speed. The association is hopeful. Faxon reported, the state agency will work with the Rock Island line and Interest- ed businesses in financing a complete upgrading (it the line. Ruck Island officials have indicated an interest in abandonment of the line, ac- cording to Faxon. He said the survey is expected to show that with improved rail condi- tions, traffic would be such that abandonment would not be warranted. Approximately 311 people attended the meeting at the Pinicon Motor Inn hotel. Damages Awarded for Cows in the Corn IOWA CITY Judge Au- gust F.

Appeal (.rtands McGhee had appealed his conviction on grounds that Judge llarlan W. Bainter of Des Muines county district eourt denied defense counsel authority to engage an inde- pendent psychiatristat at publ- ic expense. A psychiatrist at Oakdale Security Medical Facility re- ported after an evaluation of McGhec that he was compe- tent to participate in judicial proceedings, though he ap- parently was of an "aggres- sive" personality and said he frequently had "flashbacks" to aggressive Incidents In his life that caused him to commit hostile acts on slight provocation. Evaluation McGhee's attorney said he wanted to hire an independent psychiatrist to evaluate whether McGhee was insane at the time of the offense. The attorney said he needed liiu evaluation ttt detennim- whether the pica should be changed from innocent to innocent iiy reason of insanity He argued that if McGhee had enough money, he could hire a psychiatrist on his own. but since he didn't, equal protection of the law demand- ed that a psychiatrist be provided at public expense Was Timely In the 5-0 decision, written by Justice Maurice Kawlings, the court held that the ap- plication was timely but it "dealt in conclusory allega- tions rather than factual state- ments which might have aided the court in making a deci- sion." Rawlings said there was no adequate showing "on which the trial court could have objectively determined whether further examination by a psychiatist was in any sense reasonably needed or necessary." In such a case, be said Judge Bainter did not abuse his discretion in deny- ing the request.
