The bill now goes back to the senate, where it was passed last year, 39 to 0, for consideration of an amendment tightening up the bill so revenue may not be used for maintenance purposes. The bill authorizes school districts to us ethe money to repair or replace buildings, as well as to build new structures — to which the present law is limited. Otto Wiedersberg, secretary for the Cedar Rapids Community school district, said the bill will clarify uses of the schoolhouse fund. He noted an attorney general’s opinion had allowed school districts to use money from the fund for remodeling. “Schoolhouse must be liberally construed when you’re in tht school business,” Wiedersberg said. “If you don’t have a supply building, where do you store supplies? This bill probably makes legal what districts have been doing for years.” Rep. Joan Lipsky (R-C.R.), along with State Sen. Cloyd Robinson (D-C.R.)( wra schief sponsor of the bill.

Feld: Consider All Communities WYOMING - Michael J.) F'eld, Republican candidate for the nomination to the U. S. house of representatives in the Second district, told the Wyoming Jaycees Tuesday, “If a candidate is to be successful this fall he must not write off any community regardless of its size. “And to do so will be inviting certain defeat this November. This is as true for Wyomig as it is for Cedar Rapids since the voters have the right to know who and what they are voting for on a first-hand basis. “Otherwise, there would be no need for a people-to-people campaign. The day of bombarding the voters with last minute rhetoric and propaganda is over.” {The (Crimr Snpi&s Okurllr 500 Third Ave. SE, Cedar Rapids, I-owno 52406.
