Pawlewski said the federal funds, some of which have been granted since 1968, will be available as budgeted for January, February and March. Although funds for the following three months are still in doubt, lie said, the new congress will be in session then and could respond to any administration proposal. The department of health, education and welfare changed its position on impounding the funds because of the number of telegrams, letters and telephone calls in response to the decision, Pawlewski said. Both Pawlewski and Gov. Robert D. Ray last week questioned the decision to withhold the funds Pawlewski said Iowa could have lost up to $545,000 if the funds had been impounded for the entire six-month period.

Linn county auditor, was notified of the discrepancy about three weeks ago, Penningroth said, and an investigation 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 office to handle.
