Penning- Asks State Audit Merle Kopel, Linn county au- ditor, was notified of the discre- pancy about three weeks ago, Penningroth said, and an inves- tigation by him substantiated the discrepancy. After working on the audit about two weeks, Kopel said he requested a state audit because the job was too vast for his of- fice to handle. A female employe, Whom Pen- ningroth declined lo name, was suspended Dec. 17. Penningroth also would not reveal Die position held by the employe. Kopel indicated the alleged embezzlement occurred over a period within the last year. Two state auditors have worked a few days on the audit, Kopel said, and are expected to return next week and complete the work sometime during the first part of January.

Tlie state's study of a wester ly alternative is fatally defec- tive, the suit declares, because it fails to consider the possible combination of 1-380 with a cir- cumferential highway. The com- bination would make it less expensive, according to the suit. The petition sets out that the lighway commission says it does not know where the, cir- cumferential highway will be located. If this is true, the suit says "Every Precaution" "During the time I was con- cerned wilh Senator (Humphrey's political activities in 1970, I took every possible precaution to assure that there were no violations of any state or federal he said.

Although funds for the follow ing three months are still in doubt, lie said, the new congress will be in session then and couU respond to any administration proposal.

Elimination of East Iowa Crime Commission Seen CLINTON (AP) The execu- tive committee of the Iowa crime commission has decided Hint it "must reduce by one the number of area commissions" in the slate, says Mark Barnes of Clinton. The one to be eliminated is the Eastern Iowa crime commis- sion, which inludes Clinton, Scott and Muscatine counties, said Barnes, chairman of the eastern agency. He said Tuesday the decision to dissolve the three-county commission was made "because of today's inflationary trend." Barnes said he expects Scott and Muscatine counties to resist the change "because of the in- convenience." Under a new plan, Barnes said, the two counties would join the newly-formed Eastern Iowa area crime commission, which will also include Johnson, Jones, Linn, Benton and Iowa counties. Clinton county would join 15 other counties: Cedar, Jackson, Dubuque, Delaware, Buchanan, Black Hawk, Grundy, Butler, Bremer, F a y e 11 e, Clayton, Ihickasaw, Howard, Winnesfiiek and Allamakee. Clinton county would join a district newly-named the North- east Iowa area crime commis- sion.
