DES MOINES (UPI) - Two Minnesota firms were named in suits filed by Attorney General Richard Turner Monday for violating both the Iowa consumer fraud act and the new Iowa consumer credit code. In the petition. Turner charged Federated Reporting Bureau, Inc., and Hadley, West, ( lark and Patrick, Inc . both doing business as Federal Reporting Bureau, and Terrance Robson, vicepresident of the second firm, with fraud in selling distributorships for the operation of collection agencies. < ustemcr Promises "These distributorships have been sold to Iowans for U. of I. Hospitals Expand Services IOWA CITY - The University hospital school is expanding its role as a training and resource center for the state of Iowa in the care and education of handicapped children. The hospital school was established at the University of Iowa in 1947 by the Iowa legislature to provide a facility for the treatment and education of physically handicapped children and to conduct research into the causes, prevention and management of handicapped conditions A major reason for locating this program at the U. of I was to offer training opportunities for prospective workers in this field Until 1970, the vast majority of the participants in these training programs were U. of I. students. Since then, however, the program    has    substantially increased    both    its in-house training activities for professionals from outside the university and its “outreach" efforts    to    communities throughout the state. “Our programs for non-university personnel are now increasing greatly upon request,” comments Dr. Riley Hodges, the school's coordinator of training. Attend Workshops Dr. Hodges notes that during the first six months of 1974 a total of 324 professionals from all parts of Iowa and elsewhere attended workshops and other training opportunities at the hospital school, compared with 98 non-U. of I. participants in the preceding six months. “These outside trainees are in addition to the more than one thousand University of Iowa students who take courses and gain clinical experience at this facility each year,” explains Dr. Raymond R. Rembolt, director of the University hospital school and a member of its original staff. “Approximately one-half of our university students are registered in the college of education. We also serve students in the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, speech pathology and audiology medicine and a dozen other disciplines.” Stimulate Training One factor that has helped stimulate the hospital school’s training activities for outside professionals is a new federal regulation which requires that IO percent of all children served by the Head Start program must be made up of significantly handicapped children. “Most of the people in the Head Start program have never had much contact with handicapped children,” said Dr. Hodges, “and so the University hospital school has responded to meet this new need for training.” Dr. Rembolt notes that the hospital school also has been gearing up its outreach programs in response* to a law passed in the last session of the Iowa legislature. Under this new legislation, which goes into effect next year, all children in Iowa, including those* with handicaps, must be provided with an appropriate educational and training program. New Programs “We are now developing new instructional programs to aid teachers as handicapped children are placed into the mainstream of the state school system,” states Dr. Hodges, “and we’re also preparing to provide the necessary followup services in connection with these programs. In August we added to our staff a field specialist who is coordinating workshops and consulting sevices to Head Start programs throughout the state.” Dr. Stanley Hew Ix*n, principal of the hospital school, thinks the new special education law also may alter the nature of the population of handicapped chilren who are treated and edueahd at the hospital school. At present the hospital school has approximately 55 physically    handicapped children and young people in residence and IO more are brought in daily. Some of these children and young people stay at the school for only two to three weeks; while others remain several years, with interspersed periods at home. In addition, there are about 50 mentally retarded day students who are bused in from the Johnson County area. Handicapped “As the state school system begins to pick up the less severly handicapped, the population we will continue to serve probably will be the more severely handicapped,” states Hew Len. In addition to developing training programs and support services in connection with the integration of handicapped children in local school systems, the University hospital school is expanding other outreach efforts to communities across Iowa. Groups serving the handicapped, such as Home-Parent-Child Stimulation unit in Marshalltown; Skyline ( enter Inc., in Clinton; Marquette School in Davenport; the In-Home Care Worker Project in Iowa City, and other similar operations are increasingly calling on the University hospital school staff for in-service training. “The University hospital school has become much more sensitive to the needs of the outreach and mainstreaming programs,” said the principal, “and our response to these needs is now more timely anil more intense. We have reorganized our staff and added the necessary expertise to fulfill this commitment.” amounts ranging up to $2,500 with promises to the customer of an average income of $400 to $800 weekly and all the help the new distributor needed to get going,’’ Turner said In addition. Turner said, “The defendants have falsely told distributors that their program was legal in the state of Iowa, when in fact it was not and also that the program had boon approved by the attorney general's office which also is allegedly not true . letters ( barge J Referring to alleged violations to the consumer credit code. Turner charged that the two corporations have used dun letters which appear to Im* from a governmental agency and which appear to be official documents.” The petition asks the Polk county district court to enjoin the defendants from selling distributorships “through the use of any deception, fraud, or misrepresentation "j Historical Sites Are filed With State Society DECORAH — Winneshiek county’s major historical sites have been filed with the Iowa state historic preservation program at Iowa City, a longtime objective of the county historical society, said E. J Weigle, president. James K. Beranek, of Iowa ('ity, free lance writer and photographer has been supplying technical assistance in the project. The new data that has been gathered will be used for the consideration of deserving sites for the national register of historic sites.

The Norwegian-American museum and the Ixiura Ingalls Wilder House in Burr Oak had reports filed previously.

Other activities of the historical society include ownership of the Porter house. Locust school, and Frankville museum, a historic markers program on old cemeteries and burial places and cooperation with state and nearby historical groups.
