DES M01NES (UPI) The Iowa attorney general's office said Monday school districts where non-public school child- ren reside have three options, under lowu law, In busing those children out .of the school district. In making the decision, As- sistant Attorney Elizabeth No- lan cited legislation passed by the 1973 Iowa legislature which provides authority for a joint governmental service contract between two school districts where children are transported from the district where they live to another dis- trict where they attend school. Nolan said the school dis- trict may do one of three things: Use In a school bus operated by a publ- ic school district. Contract with private par- ties, with the contract not ex- ceeding the average per pupil transportation costs of the school district for that year. Utilize the tranportatlsn reimbursement provision, with the reimbursement not exceeding per nonpublic school pupil per year. The ruling was requested by Slate Kep. William Ferguson (R-Glidden) who asked about an arrangement between the Carroll and Ar-We-Va school districts to bus non-public school children. Ferguson asked whether an Ar-We-Va school bus could stop inside Ihe Carrol school district to pick up students who attend a non-public school in the Ar-We-Va district. "It would appear that there is ample legal authority for such a contract between the two school districts to imple- ment the provisions of the Iowa Nolan said.

Ruling: Sell Any Type DKS M01NKS (UI'I) The Iowa supremo court Monday Interpreted the state's drug abuse laws to mean that it is illegal to possess or sell any type of marijuana.

He said some plant experts have said there are as many as five species of marijuana and not just one.
