He said until that shake- down has been held, prisoners will be held in their own cells except for meals, medical services, visits and mail.

Council Rejects Proposal EVANSDALE (UPI) A proposal to contract for police services with neighboring Waterloo was rejected by the I'jvansihile city council Monday night. The vote of the council was 3-3. and Evausdale Mayor .loe llomolka couldn't cast the tie-breaking vote because Iowa law prohibits mayors from voting on resolutions involving spend- ing of municipal money. The resolution would have given the livansdale city gov- ernment the go-ahead to purchase services from the Waterloo police department from Nov.l to Dec. 31 at a cost of Sfi.lilil. Kviinsrialc. a Waterloo suburb of residents, has been left without its own police force since hist week when the department's six officers quit following Police Chief Floyd Warneka's refusal to resign.

"It's not one of these things that we can do overnight or something that would require that we lake over a complete hospital." Need Motivation Pawlcwski, who said about in state funds would be needed to implement Hie project, warned that not all al- coholics could be treated by the aversion therapy. "You have to be motivated for this treatment to work." Pawlewski said. "11 just wouldn't work for the skid row alcoholic. We still would use present methods of treat- ment." Pawlewski said a similar "alowa City, but approval by the version" commission would be the first time Iowa actually would conduct a statewide program to treat al- coholics with the new therapy.
