The accusation comes from Sen. William Palmer. Des Moines, who is .seeking the Democratic nomination tor lieutenant governor. When the 1973 legislature approved increased benefits to public employes under the Iowa Public Employes' Retirement System, it also added two public employes to the I PF'RS investment board. The two public employes, who must be covered by IPF'.RS, are to serve as ex-of-ficio members. Although the changes in thr law became effective last July I. Palmer charged the governor has not yet appointed the two public members. Palmer claims this is a "violation of the law” and said "the governor must be laughing at us (legislators)." Wythe Willey, executive assistant to Gov. Ray. said earlier this month the governor appointed George Duvall, former basketball coach at Ames and presently a teacher at Ames high school, to the board and is working on the second appointment "Anyone can make recommendations to the board and we certainly have never received any recommendations from Palmer. Willey said "We're making about IO to 15 appointments a week. This is like picking out one percent and ignoring the other 99 percent." Willey added. The I PF; RS advisory investment hoard which supervises some $550 million in funds is comprised of three representatives from insurance, banking and industrial fields. Two legislators appointed bv the speaker of the house and the lieutenant governor also serve on the board in an ex-officio capacity. ST. LOUIS. Mo. (AP) - A three-judge appellate panel has upheld the right of inmates at the Iowa state penitentiary to belong to a religious group known as the Church of the New Song. In a U.S. Eighth circuit court of appeals decision, the panel held that the church, a protest of prison officials notwithstanding. "is a religion within the ambit of the First amendment." Furthermore, the panel ruled. U. S. district Court Judge William Hansen, Des Moines, was not in error in upholding the right of the inmates in a previous decision. Appealed Ruling The warden of the penitentiary, Lou V. Brewer, and two penitentiary chaplains have ap- Shellsburg Board Sets S7,700 Base SHELLSBURG - The Shellsburg Community school board has made a final offer of a new salary schedule for the 1974-75 school year to the certified employes. The scale is on a base of $7,700. Fringe benefits include two days' personal leave each year. a bereavement leave up to five days, parental leave for childbirth, development of joint committees to study and discuss student learning, credit for five 1 years' experience from another district, and full individual rate paid for hospitalization insurance with a major medical policy A new extra-curricular pay schedule also was approved, with an average of $190 raise in the sports and music areas. The board also approved an eight percent pay raise for noncertified employes—cooks, bus drivers and secretaries. pealed the district court ruling contending the Church of the New Song is not a religion. As noted by the lower court, the appeals court decision said, "The question of the church can be dealt with by both the prison administration staff and the court in the event it should be subsequently found to be a hoax" Judges writing the unsigned decision of the appellate court were Floyd R. Gibson. Roy L Stephenson and William H. Webster. Started in 1970 The Church of the New Song was started in 1970 by a federal prisoner at Atlanta. Ga., named Harry Theriault. The church stresses that an individual's desires should take precedence over any authority, provided the individual s actions bring him inner peace and do not disturb the inner peace of others. Hansen had said in his ruling that Protestant and Catholic services at the state penitentiary did not fulfill the needs of members of the Church of the New' Song. Michael Hemmers and Robert boney, two penitentiary inmates. had sent a complaint to Hansen, charging that members of the sect were being denied their right to practice their religion The church's headquarters for Iowa and ten other states is located in Iowa City. abc (friar i&ajribs (6a*rttr Established rn 1883 by Th* Gazette Co. and published doily end Sunday at 500 Third Ave SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52406 Second Class Postage paid at Cedar Rapids.
