Key Solons Back Old Capitol Bill
By Frank Ny*-
DKS MOINES Legislators who hold tho pursestrings told The Gazette Wednesday they l(K)k with favor on the request tor $330,000 to make Old Capitol building at Iowa City structurally sound for restoration purposes.
The money also would no to finance an entrance ramp for handicapped persons, an elevator and a sprinkler system.
State Sen. Lucas De Roster (R-Hull), chairman of the senate appropriations committee, said:
“I don’t know about the amount, Rut it would b e a shame to let the building collapse. I notice the money would go for more than support for the building — for a ramp, an elevator and a sprinkler system, all of which are worthy.”
Hep. Charles Grassley (II-New Hartford), chairman of the house appropriations committee, observed that:
“We ought to do what we can to preserve the landmark. The only thing that we ask as legislators is that we be presented with some alternatives.”
State Sen. Tom Riley (K-Cedar Rapids), chairman of the appropriations subcommittee on education, expressed this view: “Old Capitol means rn ire to me than any other building I can think of. It is the past as well as the present of Iowa. I support the appropriation to make sure it Is a part of the future of Iowa.”
State Rep. Robert Kreamer (R-Des Moines', chairman of the house appropriations subcommittee on education, said: “These types of proposals are more attractive to me because they are one-shot expenditures. They make for more intelligent use of the state’s surplus.”

A bill to protect bicyles from| storm sewer grates was passed 58-36 by the Iowa house Wednes-|
It would require that such grates installed after next July I be so constructed that bicycles and other narrow-wheeled vehicles can pass over them safely.
Those in place before that date would have to be painted red or yellow so that bicyclists can easily see and avoid them The bill now goes to the senate.
Hep. Arthur Small (D-lowa City), who introduced the bill, said such grates present a major traffic hazard for bicycles. He said more and more people are riding bicycles and they need protection against storm sewer grates

Legislative Notes by Frank Nye
Letterhead Order Placed Before Election Decision
DKS Mol NKS Lait Monday’s “Legislative Notes” ex plored I hr subject of legislati ve stationery and envelopes and who’s using the most
Turned out that some candidates for higher political office have ordered the most over the 1973-74 legislative period.
Conies now State Sen. Michael Blouin (D-Dubuquej, who is running for the Democratic nomination for Second district congressman, with a note that his order for 13,(RKT letterheads was placed in January of 1973 ‘‘before the possibility of seeking the Second district congressional seat ever had arisen and that
9.000 of these letterheads have already been used to mail my biweekly newsletter to my constituents.”
Mike said his newsletter goes “to HOO people all but 12 of whom live in Dubuque county.” blouin
He added that he also ordered 5,000 letterheads he paid for himself and that “as in the past, I have been careful not to use state provided stationery for campaign purposes,”
11 a □
THE Monday “Legislative Notes” listed State Sen. Tom Riley (R-Cedar Rapids), a candidate for the GOF nomination for Second district congressman, as having ordered
10.000 letterheads over the last year.
A recheck of the senate records shows that he ordered only 6,000 letterheads, and 11,000 envelopes.
Again, legislators must pay their own postage for any mailings. They do not have the franking privileges enjoyed by congressmen and U.S. senators.

The first workshop will be j based on “Little Red Riding! I Hood,” “The Three Little Pigs”: and one other traditional children’s story. The second, on Feb. 23, will feature stories from the Dr. Seuss books.

Seen in Iowa Yet
DKS MOINES - The Iowa department of health has been informed by the national Center for Disease Control that a nationally-distributed candy product from one Canadian manufacturer has been tentatively identified as the source of a nationwide outbreak of Salmonella yeastbourn'* infections.
As of Feb. I, a total of 47 cases have been identified in 13 different states. No cases have yet been identified in Iowa, but at least 15 cases have been reported from the neighbormng states of Illinois. Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota.
The implicated produet is foil-wrapped chocolate balls imported from the Regent Chocolate Co., Ltd., of St. Hyacinthe, Canada. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Food and Drug Administration are currently working to identify the various specific brood names and the distributing companies through which this product has been disseminated and the areas of the country to which it has been shipped so that a complete recall of
the contaminated project may he initiated.
Because Valentine’s day is only two weeks away and relatively heavy candy purchasing and comsumption can be ex peeled to accompany this particular holiday, the state depart* merit of health confiders it ad visable to bring this particular problem to the attention of merchants and the consuming public at this time, even though all implicated brands have not yet. been specifically determined or identified.
The department of health advises that merchants consider all foil-wrapped chocolate balls which have been imported from Canada as suspect and remove them from pales shelves until the specific contaminated brands can be identified. Brands of uncertain source .should be similarly handled Persons who have already purchased foil-wrapped chocolate balls of Canadian or uncertain origin are advised to keep ; them in a safe place so that they will not be eaten until the specific contaminated brands can be determined.
