In one of the in U.S civil tion history some airline pilots nearly a third of those now flying will retire over the next 10 years An additional new pilots could be needed each year when the industry

former Air Force general who heads the panel It would have been nice if we thought of it way far back but mere was no pressure on the airlines to get serious about it Even today there seems little

Highway 21 south of Belle Plaine was closed Saturday Audit finds irregularities in city's books By TIM JAMISON Courier Staff Writer The city of Waterloo levied million in property taxes over two years for employee benefits that were improperly used to fund general city operations according to the city's annual audit Auditors with Corp said the city's General Fund would have had a million deficit last year if those taxes had been properly accounted for by city officials The report released last week covers the year ending June 30 1992 and was one of the harshest audits in several years Other conditions cited include charging federal programs more than was spent on employee health insurance for city employees administering those programs and receiving more than the allowable amount of general obligation bonds in one year for the renovation of City Hall Officials in the City Clerk's Office acknowledge that many of the auditors findings are related to the city's weak financial status But they deny that thing improper has occurred and flatly objected to most of the significant conclusions contained in the audit There has been an ongoing difference of ion between us and the auditors regarding some of these said Budget Agent Bruce Meisinger We think we're right They think they're right How do you resolve those Acting Auditor Michelle Temeyer said she was curious why the auditors finally cited the city for some of the practices which have been going on for years One of the most significant conclusions in the audit was that the city circumventing tions on the General Fund by improperly shifting million of those expenses to the trust and Agency Fund from July to June The city long ago reached its maximum levy rate on the General Fund which covers operations of most city services But Iowa law allows cities to levy a separate trust and agency property tax to cover certain employee benefits including Social Security workers compensation and health fits According to the audit the city levied in the Trust and Agency Fund during fiscal year to pay for employee benefits including unused sick leave and vacation pay retirement outs that are considered payroll and should have been part of the General Fund levy A similar ference of was noted in the previous year Had those items been properly accounted the city's General Fund balance would have See A7 Dads can tell their newborns by touching the baby's hand study finds NEW YORK AP Here's surprising news for Father's A new study finds that most fathers can recognize their bom babies just by stroking the backs of the infants hands About 61 percent of blindfolded dads chose correctly from a group of three babies much better than the 33 percent one would expect from pure guessing Similar results for mothers were reported last year But the mothers were also shown to recognize their infants by stroking the cheek whereas fathers in the new study could not researchers said The difference may arise because fathers tend to touch their infants faces far less than mothers do but frequently touch hands during play said psychologist Marsha Kaitz Kaitz of Hebrew University in Jerusalem did the work with colleagues there and at the Shaare Zedek Medical ter in Jerusalem The study has been ed for publication in the international nal Infant Behavior and Development she said in a telephone interview Tiffany Field director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami said it made sense that fathers shared recognition ability with mothers Bui the fact that they showed it with an average of only 6.8 hours of prior direct exposure to the child is pretty she said The study included 23 middle-class Israeli fathers The recognition ability appeared in men from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and Kaitz said she believed the same results would occur with fathers from the United States The average age of participants was 30 and half were first-time dads The babies were on average 69 hours old at the time of the test Participants were drawn from fathers iting in a maternity ward Those who agreed to take part were not allowed to see their infants again until after the test which was generally performed within 24 minutes One by one they were blindfolded with their noses covered They were led to each of three bassinets which held sleeping infants lying face down with a hand flat on the mattress Two decoy babies had been matched to each father's own infant in age sex and approximate size Each father's index finger was placed on the back of the hand which he was allowed to stroke He was not allowed to feel the outline of the hand or the fingers The fathers generally said they relied on texture or gut feeling to identify their infants but Kaitz said those descriptions may not be reliable because people are not used to describing experiences of touch The true answer is probably some nation of such things as skin temperature creases and the amount of fatty tissue under the skin
