Italy (AP) Ermenegikia Urbano, a 78- year-old woman who had been begging on the streets of nearby Basiliano for half a century, died suddenly on the street recently. At her home the police found six sacks of paper currency and coin, By Hurrlscu Weber DES MOINES (IDPA) The lawa public employment relations board, which was created under the new collec- tive bargaining law for public employes, has received its first formal complaint. It was filed against tho Clarinda municipal hospital by a local nurses' association, comprised of 25 full and part- time registered nurses. The Clarinda municipal hospital nurses' association contends the hospital has failed to negotiate a contract in "good faith" which, they say, is in violation of the new collective bargaining law. Under the act the three member public relations board may conduct an inves- tigation and hold a hearing into the charges. File Statement The nurses' association, in a formal statement filed with the board, reported contract negotiations with the nurses and the hospital's board of trustees broke down on Oct 2 when the hospital made a "take-it-or-leave it" offer which was rejected by the nurses. The nurses' association, which claims to represent 100 percent of all registered nurs- es employed at the Clarinda municipal hospital, said the hospital board informed them "there would be no further negotiation and that they would not submit to arbitra- tion." At various limes during the negotiations, according to the nurses, the hospital board said there would be no salary increases lor the registered nurses until a contract was agreed upon. Other employes at the hospital, according to the nurses, received raises ranging from 5 to 15 cents commencing on June 10 of this year. Claim Cocrslon The Clarinda association, through its attorney, claims the hospital board's actions are designed to "restrain or coerce" the nurses in (her rights granted by the collec- tive bargaining act. Furthermore, the nurses claim the action of the hos- pital is discriminatory against the nurses "because they have formed, joined or chosen to be represented by the employee organization." association is challeng- ing tho constitutionality of the "impasse procedure" feature of the collective bargaining act on the grounds that it deprives public employees of due process and is "without rational basis." Tho association contends the hospital board had agreed to negotiate prior to July, 1974, when certain portions of the collective bargaining law became effective. The law stipulates, how- ever, that the 'ons of the act relative to the "duty to bargain" do not become effec- tive until July 1, 1975. School Groups Oppose Possible Truck Amendment Money Back at Ohio Hospital DES MOINES proposed constitutional amendment to stop truck weight fines from going to school districts where the fines are paid is being op- posed by two school organiza- tions. The Iowa Assn. of School Administrators and Iowa Assn. of School Boards content the constitutional change could cost school districts more than million a year. The constitutional amend- ment is one of two that will appear on the ballot next Tuesday. FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) Blanchard Valley hospital has started an experimental program guaranteeing hospital services. Dissatisfied patients won't have to pay their bills. The guarantee covers ser- vices such as nursing care, food and housekeeping, but it does not include the services of physicians and dentists or results of medical care. Administrator William Ruse said that patient complaints will be investigated by a panel of administrative staff members to make sure they are justified and to determine where improvements are needed. He said the guarantee program is designed to give patients some assurance upon entering tho hospital and pos- sibly "help the patient gel well a little bit faster." The hospital has 500 employes and admits about patients a year. "We have a lot of confidence and faith in our Ruse said. "If we didn't feel we give good care to begin with we wouldn't have adopted a program like this."

Richard Turner has asked tho Polk county district court for an injunction to pro- hibiting an Arizona land firm from selling gold and prom- isory notes in Iowa. Turner asked the court to stop Western Land Sales Co. of Scottsdale, Ariz., from us- ing sales techniques that al- legedly vlolate.tho state's con- sumer fraud law. The attorney general also asked that money collected from lowans through such practices be returned. The petition charges the land company sold lowans promissory notes representing "safe investments" when they were actually "high risk."
