The county planners formally accepted that study, but have not yet amended their major streets plan to show only the eastern alternate. The plan now shows both alternates. Delay Action At the November meeting. Hiawatha Mayor Dale Guthridge asked the planning commission to delay action on amending the streets plan until the highway commission study could be evaluated by Powers, Willis and Associates, an Iowa City engineering firm hired for the purpose by Hiawatha. The firm’s report was presented Monday by Noel Willis. He said the cost estimate by the highway commission for construction of the eastern alternate seems low, and does not include some additional expenses that would not be present with the western alternate. Beltway Cost The highway commission es timated construction costs at $20,127,000 few the eastern alternate and $22,603,000 for the western one. Willis said the difference would actually be about $1.5 million instead of $2 5 million.

A masked man carrying a short barreled luger pistol took about $50 shortly before 3 a.m. Tuesday from a clerk, James Lonzemius, 22, Iowa City. The 24-hour store opened for business last Thursday. Police said Lonzemius was making change for a customer, Richard A. Dittmar, 18, of 1527 B avenue NE, when the man pointed a gun at him and demanded the cash register’s contents in a paper bag. The suspect fled through the front door after making Lonzemius and Dittmar lie on the floor. The holdup man was described as white, about 25, about 6 feet tall, weighing 175 pounds and wearing a green and gold ski mask and a long green coat with wide lapels.
