Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 3, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 'Protect Children' Effort To Study TV Programming Jack's Pure Dalmatian —Gazette Photo bv Duane Crock Diamond Jack is a real gem of a dog. The six-month-old pure Dalmatian male is housebroken and good with children. Diamond Jack's previous owners were forced to give him up when they moved. He has had all his shots and can be adopted for $10 from the Humane Society, ML Vernon road SE, open from IO a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. By Kevin Kane Plans for a “Protect the Chi dren” publicity campaign an local investigation into the effect of television programming on children were announcec Tuesday night by Citizens Con cerned for Decency. The local organization, an ou ; growth of Church Women Unit ed, held a public progress re port session Tuesday night at the YWCA. Ruth Redman, immediate past president of Churc Women United and spokesman for the citizens’ group, said the publicity and television efforts will be coordinated by two com mittees. Betty Kennedy, 3026 Fran brook terrace NW, was namec to head the publicity committee and Phyllis Holden, rura Swisher, and Sally Sattler, 3201 Franbrook terrace NW, were named co-chairmen for the tele vision committee. Considered Suggestions The majority of the evening discussion centered around sug gestions for analyzing the televi s i o n question, encompassing possible effects of violence as well as so-called “adult” pro grams being slotted into chil dren’s viewing hours. The group, emphasizing it wants to examine what televi sion programming might be In the Legislature “good as well as bad” for children, also discussed possible investigation into the effects of horror and “occult” films such as “The Exorcist”. Mrs. Redman told the IO to 15 women at the report session they must keep abreast of the times in these areas, because “what happens in our society gets passed around to our children pretty fast.” Parental Interest The “Protect the Children” publicity campaign will tie into developing parental interest in i the television programming effort as well as the group’s earlier efforts to keep sexually-explicit materials from being jdisplayed in public places frequented by minors. The latter cause, for which the women lobbied earlier this year in Des Moines, has been incorporated to some degree in Iowa obscenity law revisions which passed the house last week and are now being considered in the senate. I Persons or organizations interested in working with the Citizens Concerned for Decency are invited to contact Mrs. Redman (362-2442), Mrs. Kennedy (366-0685), Mrs. Holden <857-13800) or Mrs. Sattler (362-3598).

The cosmetics firm said the request for a voluntary recall came from the Food and Drug Administration following reports that at least IO industrial workers exposed to the chemical, vinyl chloride, had developed angiosarcoma. The two brands being recalled are Summer Blonde Aerosol I Hair Spray and Miss Clairol Aersol Hair Spray. The firm said vinyl chloride was used in the propellant of those two brands for about four years but was discontinued last summer. A Clairol spokesman said it was considered “extremely remote” that anyone using one of the sprays under normal conditions would be harmed.

Cedar Rapids: Aisle tar, Downtown Street Floor and Lindale Budget Shop Iowa City: Mall Shopping Center on Six at Sycamore I Downstairs Budget Store    I/*11* Kl I ions By William L. Eberline DES MOINES (AP) - A land use policy bill previously defeated, has been resurrected and passed 67-26 by the Iowa house. Before passing the measure Tuesday, the house added amendments designed to make it more palatable to urban representatives. “Urban Sprawl” Rep. Dale Cochran (D-Eagle Grove), floor manager of the bill which now goes to the senate, said the bill would set up a and county land use policy commissions to woo the votes of urban legislators. One of them, offered by Cochran and five others, would require that of the five new members of the state commission, one must be from a city with a population over 25,000. one from a city between 10,000 and 25,000. and one from a city of under IO,0(H). The other two would be named to “represent a broad cross-section of the public.” The bill provides that the framework to enable the state to j county board of supervisors control “urban sprawl,” take names one third of the county care of industrial needs and commission, soil district com-preserve class A farm land for missioners one third, and production of food and fiber. mayors and councilmen of the “We are the breadbasket of(^*es an^ towns in the county the world,” Cochran said, “and ^ rema*ning one-third. we know our land has been used T house added an amend- The measure would provide funds to find a way to take sulphur out of Iowa coal and to demonstrate that the coal can SF1295, To permit street name changes to be noted on a sheet attached to a plat instead of on the plat. 40-0.
