He said that especially in the area of grain hauling, a higher priority on rail freight syslems would not only marked- ly decrease wear on highways, but 'would also serve the dual function of energy conservation. Rinas touched on other areas of concern, listing the crisis in educational funding as a (op priority and expressing opposi- tion lo lax breaks for large cor- porations. Lipsky To Ask for Bicycle Safety Law State Rep. Joan Lipsky (R- Ccdar Rapids) said Friday she intends to introduce legislation aimed at reducing the alarming increase in accidents involving bicyclists." In a speech before Ihe DAR, Mrs. Lipsky said the legislation would be designed 'lo encourage communities to develop a three- phase bicycle safety program. She said the first involves training and education; second, establishment of marked routes not heavily used by motor vehi- cles; and third, licensing of both riders and vehicles to assure fitness of both. "All of these factors will tend to reduce she said. "Since many of our bicyclists are children, this safely pro- Ford Commended for House Appearance DUBUQUK Speaking lo the Dubuque Kotary club this week. Second district Republican con- gressional candidate Tom Riley commended President Gerald Ford for his Voluntary appear- ance last week before 'a liousc judiciary subcommittee to testi- fy on the Nixon pardon. Rilcy proposed that Mr. Ford consider instituting the practice of making regular appearances before congress. Riley suggested that Ihe Brit- ish system, which allows the opposition parly to question the Prime Minister about national policy and problems on a once a week basis has worked well. I don't believe il would be necessary or feasible for the ap- pcaranccs to be as oflen as once a week; perhaps every second month would he said. "The frequent use of such a dalogue would be beneficial lo congress as well as the public, it is doubtful if Watergate would lave assumed Ihe proportions that it did had this practice been in effect at the time." Kopecky. Job Needs Experience Eugene J. Kopecky, Demo- cratic candidate for Linn county attorney, said Thursday that the prosecution of criminal cases is a major rcsponsiblilyi which requires experience in! dealing with criminal law." I Speaking at a coffee at the j home of Mr. and Mrs. Richard i Niccolls, 2101 Knollshire road NE, Kopecky said "Being an as- Final Decision Under s u m m i t procedural rules, Ihe recommendation will be be placed before Ihe kings and presidents for a final deci- sion. The recommendation was ori- ginated by Syria and co-spon- sored by Egypt. II has been the main item of disagreement since the ministers began their preparatory meetings Tuesday. Abou Amara said Jordan had "exact and unequivocal infor- mation that if Jordan is blocked out of the negotialing process with Israel, there will be no lib- eration of Arab land by peaceful means."

The 10.000-watt station would be able lo reach nearly all of the seven-county area served by Kirkwood. while the present sta- tion can broadcast within a ra- dius of about five miles. Fallen said used equipment can be purchased from the Uni- versity of Northern Iowa's radio station for about That station is purchasing new equip- ment. What Is Included For about Fallen said Ihe college can purchase a 400- foot lower, transmitter, and a small building to house the equipment. The cost also in- cludes erection of the facilities. The college must apply for the license soon, he said, since there are reports the Federal Communications Commission will soon stop issuing licenses for stations in 'Febru- ary because of a frequency allo- cation problem. The college would also have lo spend about a year for operation. For programming, Fatten suggested re-broadcasting por- tions of WOI, the radio station at Iowa State university, and KHKK, UNl's radio station. "A Start" "It would be something to start with so we can keep the station on the air 14 hours a day and still gel. in three or four hours a day of Kirkwood pro- said Patten.
