The proposed rezoning was the only one of seven public hearings to draw objections, but it drew plenty as several neigh- borhood residents and their law- yer said it would ruin the quiet character of the area. The rezoning has been re- quested by Larry D. Sharp. Six- t e e n apartment units arc planned on the site, which is located east of Edgewood road. Ben.Shakespeare, 3008 E ave- nue NW, called the proposal a and his wife, Irma, said the extra housing units would add to an existing sewer overload. "A few years ago we were told to get rid of our outdoor toilets because it was unsani- she said. "Now we have sewage in our Other neighbors spoke of hav- ing up to four feet of raw sew- age in their basements in the past few years. Sharp's lawyer pointed out city engineering staff reports approving the development. He also reminded councilmen the new Morgan creek sewer will soon be completed, easing the load on the existing sewer. "The experts employed by you have said this is he told the councilmen. No decision was made by the council. the vice-presidency, Democratic Rep. Richard VanderVeen won again despite Ford's visit last week.

Broyhill, a 22-year In California, the G.O.P. was losing in four races. On the Democratic side, there were single losses in Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Dakota. Mills Wins But in Arkansas, Rep.

In the governors' races, Dem- scrats scored expected victories iver Republicans in a number if states, including New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Col- orado, Oregon, Tennessee and Wyoming. But Democrat Sander Levin's second bid to unseat Republican Gov. William Milliken again fell hort in Michigan, and Republi- can James Edwards was elected he first G.O.P. governor in a century in South Carolina as the esult of controversy surround- ng the disqualification of the Democratic .primary winner.

For example, Stanley carried s home county of Muscatine, s expected, by votes. Mus- aline is one of Iowa's more opulous counties although not in the top nine. Even Pottawattamie and Scott counties among the top nine, traditionally Republican coun- ties, gave Culver the nod. over Stanley, but not by much. Culver's margin in Scott was only 259.

Blouin also promised during lis campaign to carry on the work of the congressman he will succeed, John Culver, Cedar by pushing hard for congres- sional reform. It was obvious from the start of the campaign that Blouin had to win Dubuque big and hold down Riley's vole in Linn to win !he congressional seat. Dubuque Miirgin That's exactly what he did, coming out of Dubuque county with a margin and picking up 781 votes more over Riley in Clayton Fayette .Jackson (157) and Jones all of which were Republi- can counties for congress before Culver turned them over during his ten-year stint. Meanwhile, Riley to cut Blouin's margin by only votes in his home county of Linn, plus votes in Allama- kee Cedar Clinton Delaware (121) and Win- neshiek Riley made a valiant effort to overcome the fall-out effect of Watergate, the resignations of former President Nixon and former Vice-president Agnew, and of President Ford's pardon of Nixon and of Ford's surtax proposal that weighted against all Republicans, even though they had no connection with any of them. The Cedar Rapids lawyer, who has served 12 years in the Iowa legislature, writing many of the state's laws, campaigned hard as was indicated by the fact that he carried the dis- trict's third largest county, Clin- ton, as well as its largest, Linn. First Time It was the first lime a Repub- lican candidate for congress- man had carried either county since former Congressman James Bromwell did it in 1962. The defeat was Riley's second for congressman. He was the unsuccessful GOP nominee in 1968, losing to Culver. Born in Jacksonville, Fla., and educated in Florida and Illi- nois schools.
