An tqunl Oppoitunity fmployrr Unidentified Animal Sighted Near Pike's Peak MCOKRGOH-Ari animal, which some persons believe might have been a cougar, was seen Sunday night neai Pike's Peak state park. Scott Slaughter, 30, reported his nephew, Junior Slaughter 17, was alone at his family's home near the park when he saw an animal about 100 feet from the house. The animal growled for over an hour. Frightened, the youth called his uncle, who arrived with a shotgun. The elder Slaughter approached the animal, which he described as about four feel long, one-and-a half to two feet in height and tan in color. He said the animal had a cat-like appearance, but was unable lo identify it. He called McGregor Police Chief Frank Mullarky, and although the animal had dis- appeared when he arrived, a dead opposum was found in the woods wilh teeth marks in its neck. The opposum was taken to Park Ranger Paul Swanson, who has transferred it to an Iowa conservation official for examination. The two Slaughters could not find the animal in a Mon- day search. Last spring, animals des- cibed as cougars were report- ed in the area.

Qualifications Are Cited In Urban Renewal Suit IOWA CITY The opening day of testimony in a suit for an injunction to slop Iowa Cit- y's downtown urban renewal project centered mainly on the qualifications of the plaintiffs. The suit, being tried in the University of Iowa law school building, contends the envi- ronmental impact statement filed in conjunction with the project is inadequate. Federal law requires im- pacl statements be filed for all projects financed by federal funds. The statement is to consider environmental fac- tors and alternatives. Environmental Statement The attorney for Citizens for Environmental Action, and the Iowa Student Public In- leresl Research Group (IS- PIRG) are contending the cit- y's environmental statement does not lake inio account available mass transit or aspects of the project's financ- ing. The first witness called by the plaintiffs was John (Skip) I.ailncr. a representative of Cilixens for Environmental Action, and has been active in 1SPIRG. Lailner contended there should have been more consid- eration of a multiple devel- oper concept, as well as em- phasis on mass transit. Harassment In cross examination, a city attorney termed Laitner "part of pasl and present harass- ment of this project." Laitner was accused of not having formal training in the envi- ronmental and urb.'in planning fields. The plaintiffs also called Thomas Pogue, associate professor of economics al the I', of I., to testify (in an al- leged lack of cost benefit anal- ysis in the cily's environ- mental statement. rogue was admitted as an expert witness. The city, however, sharply attacked the qualifications of George Brown, a professional trans- porlation consultant. The defense contended Brown's expertise dnes not include urban transportation planning. Judge William Stewart allowed Brown lo testify, bill not as an expert witness. Benton County Board Is Asked To Aid SEATS VINTON The SEATS program in Benton county is asking for help from the board of supervisors to continue funds for the program. A meeting has been set for Wednesday between the board and SEATS personnel from the overseeing Area X office. The supervisors are being asked lo try and help the bus system, as one Jfaccl of the campaign to round up the nec- essary funds. About 60 people, mostly eld- erly riders of the SEATS bus, attended a meeting in Newhall lo hear the grant problems explained by Perry Hummel, a member of the Benton county SEATS board, and Area X SEATS Coordinator Rick Brass. According to Hummel, some means will be found to keep the bus rolling for Benton senior citizens. About 150 of the estimated people over the age of 60 in Benlon County have pur- chased memberships in SEATS, allowing them to ride for a 25 cent fare. Funds from the grant which started the transportation program for area elderly, including the program in Benton county, are due to expire Oct. 1. Negligence Is Charged in Suit TOLEDO-Mike Reuman. of Traer, has filed suit in Tama county district court seeking in damages against each of three defendants and against them jointly and charges them wilh neglig- ence in the construction of a storm sewer. In his petition, Reuman charges that Traer, Elmer Miller of Traer, hired by the city to relocate a sewer, and Cannon-Peterson, Inc.. Reinbeck. were ncgligenl in building the sewer which broke last June, with the wa- ter pressure causing his base- ment wall to cave in. The sum sought from the ci- ty would be the cost of remov- ing and rebuilding (he menl walls, while the dam- sought from the con- struction firm result from its failure to cross-brace the basement walls.

Violation Telephone Michael Dooley 377-8081 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., Sept. 24, By Oswald James .lacony The old adage, "Then; arc none so blind as they who will not see" certainly applies in bridge. Kast came lo us wilh long story about how his partner let South make an ovcrtrick at three notrump. He described his partner's crime as follows: "South won the spade lead in his hand and led a heart to dummy's queen. Then he proceeded to rattle off five club tricks while my partner was obliging enough to chuck three diamonds. "Next South cashed the high spades, threw my partner in wilh a diamond and eventually made his tenth trick with the king of hearts." We didn't bother to ask East if he had contributed anything to the debacle, because he had already heard from West. It seems East had discarded two hearts and a diamond while the clubs were parading. East's first discard should have been a spade and his second discard another spade. That would have told West that he could throw spades with complete safety. As it was poor West had been afraid that South held four hearts and that he, West, just had to hang on to all his cards in that suit.

Cohen Urges Ford To Take Steps For Accountability DES MOINES (UPI) Cit- ing what he called the "gener- al decline in President Ford's the executive vice-president of Common Cause said ths new president must take five steps to insure accountability and openess in federal government. David Cohen, of Washing- ton, D.C., was in Iowa this weekend to moderate a campaign debate between U.S. senate candidates Rep. John Culver (D-Iowa) and state Rep. Dave Stanley (R-Mus- "Given the general decline in President Ford's credibili- ty, there are some very imme- diate reform steps that Pres- ident Ford should Cohen said. "They would have the salutary of putting flesh on the president's early and welcome statements on openness." lie said the first of the five steps should be an executive order requiring the logging of outside contacts hy executive branch officials and (he regis- tration of lobbyists and clients involved in executive branch lobbying. Cohen said the second step would be the signing of the campaign finance reform bill when it emerges from con- gressional conference. Cohen said the president should "issue executive orders that overhaul our classifica- tion system, strenglhen Hie enforcement of freedom of information and place strict limits on the use of executive privilege." The last two steps call for presidential support of legisla- tion establishing a special prosecutor lo investigate and prosecure public officials' misconduct, and, a pledge to "lake Hie appointments of jus- tice department officials and U.S. attorneys out of partisan politics." 5SE EES Optometrist 8 Eyes Examined Glasses Fitted Contact Lenses By appointment only 395-6356 Closed Sun. ,tnd Mnn.
