Yager, professor of science education at «he University of Iowa, has assumed the presidency of the National Assn. for Research in Science Teaching (NARST) Yager has been active in research during his 18-year career at the University of Iowa. Sen-]‘‘This is something we can do this year. But he added that one might be justified if necessary to head off a recession. Sen. Curtis (R-Neb.), a senior member of the senate finance committee, said congress ought to be talking about balancing the budget instead of cutting taxes. ‘‘Let’s deal with the cause of inflation and not fool the American people with talk about a tax cut,” Curtis said. Senators Humphrey CD-Mum.), Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Mondale (D-Minn.) also have urged a tax reduction. In the house, Speaker Albert of Oklahoma and Chairman Mills of the powerful ways and means committee have indicated they would support such a move unless there is a marked upturn in the economy soon. “Loan Explosion’’ Burns said there has been “a veritable explosion in the last few months of business loans” and in the money supply. He said the board is deter-mined to follow moderate money and interest rate policies even though such policies may be hurting the home building industry and driving up interest rates. “We are not going to sit back and prepare a monetary path to the continuance of inflation.” Burns said there would be no credit crunch and that the board would allow the supply of money and credits to expand, but only at a moderate rate. “Very Unwise” “To shape our monetary policy on the future of home building and to neglect the art of the economy, and particularly very dangerous inflation in this country, would be very unwise.” He said other government agencies can help the home Police Chief Naming Set Wednesday A new police chief will probably be chosen Wednesday, Safety Commissioner James Stein-beck said There are eight candidates for J the job, which became vacant    *    * * last fall when George Mafias re- dill, Taken    Erie tired due to poor health.    3253    Bever    circle    SE, Steinbeck said he has rowed the field to three appli Photo Exhibit — The North Central camera club exhibit in the auditorium of the Cedar Rapids public library will be open Thursday night from 6 to 9. * * * Save on patient gowns and Buresh Rental.

The selection may not be announced until next week, he added, because all the applicants should be informed of the choice before it is made public. Steinbeck said there may be a legal problem involving a section of the state code that requires a new chief to be hired within 30 days after a certified list of applicants is supplied by the civil service commission. That would mean an appointment is necessary within about ten days. The problem, Steinbeck said, is whether the law means the man must be officially hired by the deadline.

Council Plans Promotion of Th ree Officers Action Expected Wednesday on Apartment Site Construction may start early next month on a 144-unit apartment complex north of Thirty-fifth street drive SE. The city council is expected to approve a revised site development plan for the project, being constructed by Welsh and Welsh Development Co., at its Wednesday meeting. A controversy developed regarding the complex last sum-j mer when the developer requested rezoning to permit construction cf the apartments. Most area residents cited increased traffic on Thirty-fifth street drive as the basis for the objections. The city council approved the rezoning, subject to several conditions. One of the conditions prohibits use of Thirty-fifth I street drive for traffic to and from the apartments. It pro-;vides for ingress and egress via Thirty-eighth street SE, and requires that improvements on ■ the street be made to city standards at the developer's expense. The revised development plan was never formally approved by the council, because of what a lawyer for the developer termed a misunderstanding. He said the developer as- Shop Entered WEST UNION—Thieves stole $48 in cash and the motor from a minibike in a burglary Sunday night at the Northeast Iowa Cycle Shop here.
