Waukon Fire Station
The outside of Waukon s new fire station is nearing completion. Contractor David Stilwell is now waiting until furnace installation can thaw the ground inside so workmen can pour the floor and lay blocks for partitions. There recently was some delay because of doors, but steel occasioned little trouble because it was ordered well in advance, according to Stilwell. Outside concrete slabs will have to wait until frost is out in the spring. The 68 by 80 building will replace the present fire station, which is in the basement of the city hall across the street from the new structure. The new station was planned after voters in April approved a $50,000 bond issue that will pay about half its cost. It is designed to house two fire trucks, a tank wagon, and an emergency building. There will also be a meeting room, kitchen facilities, and space for living quarfers if a full - time fire force is needed in the future.

Hearing on Tama County ADC Fraud Cosets Set
TOLEDO — Judge John L. Hyland of Tama county district court Wednesday set the time for Henry L. Britton and his wife, Dorothy June Britton, Gladbrook, to move or plead to fraud in obtaining aid to dependent children assistance for Wednesday, March 13.
Mrs. Britton, 36, is charged with obtaining ADC benefits to which she was not entitled from March 2. 1971, through December, 1973, by failure to report a material change in family status affecting her eligibility for AIK.’
Each waived right to a speedy trial within 60 days.
Judge Hyland, at their request, appointed a Marshalltown attorney to represent them! at Tama county’s expense with the understanding that Tama county will not pay for the time the attorney spends in commuting between Marshalltown and
and Iowa law.
Changes on the interstate system will be made by placing a plate with the number 5 over the first digit of the changeable 75, 65 speed limit signs, providing a daytime/nighttime speed limit of 55 miles per hour on the entire system.
The signs on the primary system will be changed by the i placement of a plate over the existing two signs, blocking out portions of the signs resulting in the message, “Speed Limit, 55”.
Enforcement of the new speed limit by the Iowa highway patrol will begin Friday, March I, 1974.

DES MOINES (UPI) - One of the major architects of the criminal code revision in the Iowa legislature predicted T h u r s d a y lawmakers will make the necessary changes in the state’s obscenity laws to conform to supreme court guidelines.
Sen. Kevin Kelly (R-Sioux City;, who will Ik: one of the floor leaders when the code revision is debated, said a key provision in the proposal deals with updating the state’s obscenity statutes.
The Iowa supreme court ruled last December that a portion of the Iowa obscenity law was unconstitutional and was “too vague.” Chief Justice C. Edwin Moore urged lawmakers to clear up the statutes during the 1974 session.
Kelly said although the criminal code revision dealing with obscenity was drawn before the supreme court decisions, the provision should comply with the standards set by the court.
“It’s more clear and spells out exactly what the law should be in regard to minors, which I think is the major concern of the court at the present time,” Kelly said.
If both chambers fail to pass the entire criminal code
revision this session as has been forecast by legislative leaders, Kelly said contingency plans have been established to handle the situation.
He said the senate judiciary committee is prepared to submit a separate obscenity proposal to the senate “if and when it appears that the entire code will not receive approval.”
“There’s no doubt that with all the concern that’s been voiced that we will have a
tough time with the entire code,” Kelly said, “but we’ve got to try. Heck, after four years of study, it’s time to debate the thing.”
Several separate bills dealing with the obscenity code already have been filed this session. Kelly said those proposals probably will be dealt with as amendments to the code rather than separately.
The Sioux City lawmaker predicted the criminal code would eliminate “more than IOO bills” now pending, includ-

DES MOINES — Sen. Tpm Riley (R-Cedar Rapids) was discussing government with a group of 4-H young people while awaiting the arrival of Sen. Gloyd Robinson (D-Cedar Rapids).
Riley asked if anyone in the group knew how many justices there are on Iowa’s supreme court.
There was a long pause and suddenly the group chorused:

ing ones dealing with obscenity, if it is passed.
“It will be up to the legislature to decide whether they want to go with the way the committee attacked the obscenity issue,” Kelly said, “or whether they want to go with proposals by Sens. Gene Kennedy, (D-Dubuque) or Ray Taylor (R-Steamboat Rock).”
“Worthless” in Future
However, Kelly expressed concern that whatever action the legislature could take dealing with obscenity could be ‘‘worthless in future years.”
Ile said other cases before the U.S. supreme court, including one dealing with the right of showing the film “Carnal Knowledge”, could change the whole complexity of the obscenity law in the nation.
“But, we have to deal with the present situation, and that requires us to deal with what is before us right now,” he said.
