Gulhridge said the eastern al- ternate would concentrate noise and pollution in Hiawatha in- stead of dispersing it over a larger area and would cause problems by passing close to schools and a park. He said traffic problems would be increased with con- struction of the interstate, and added that Hie elevated highway passing through the middle of the town would have a detri- mental effect on community co- hesion.

Further Therapy After the three-hour surgery Saturday on Mrs. Ford, Fouty chairman of surgery at the Bcthesda Naval Medical Center was asked if discovery of some malignancy in lymphatic tissu would be an ominous sign. He said, "This would not bi particularly an ominous sign. Ii would not be particularly a bac sign. People do respond to fur- ther therapy. There would be no more surgical procedures done because all of this tissue would be removed.1 And, now (hat they have the findings in hand, the doctors said that the next step in Mrs. Ford's case will be to make special diagnostic studies to de- cide whether X-ray, hormonal or chemotherapy should be used 'to insure maximum treatment of this cancer."

Raymond Kasscl. deputy planning chief for the highway commission, denied Ihe latter charge. He said Hiawatha and all other concerned govern- mental units were kept well-ad- vised of the planning process. Kassel said later, in response to questioning about the cffccls of changing to the western route, that such a change conic delay the interstate for up to a year and could hinder the stale's road-building program. Motions Rejected The commission then rejectee Iwo motions by Gulhridge, on to table the question and the other to approve the wcstcn route, before voting to approve the eastern roulc. Immediately after the plan- ning unit's action, Kasscl told commission members Ihc high way commission would recom- mend federal approval of Linn county's planning process. Certification of the process lias been withheld for several months, most recently because the 1-380 route through Hia watha was unresolved. Without certification, no projects within the county are eligible for fcdci al funding.
