The civil service commission reported 15 members of the local force and five non- members took the test in Cedar Rapids. Tests have been mailed to 17 other applicants outside Cedar Rapids, but. none has been returned. When all tests are returned and graded, which could take as long as two weeks, interviews for the job will be held with those applicants who earned passing scores. The chief's job has Been va- cant since George Matias re- tired last year due to poor health. Her car was pushed into another parked car owned by Mary' l.uter, 1001 Seventh street SE. The three cars ram- bled ahead like a train, with llusgrove's vehicle pushing. The second parked ear finally veered off on its own, traveling into the 900 block of Seventh street. Meanwhile, the first two vehicles stuck close together be- fore meeting up with a city bus at the Tenth avenue and Sev- enth street intersection. That's where it all ended, almost. While police were at- tempting to untangle the situ- ation, someone helped himself to the coin changer in the bus. Musgrove said he didn't witness any part of the ac- cident. He woke up in Mercy hospital with facial cuts. He was released after treatment. No charges were filed. The amazing part of the epi- sode is that, according to the police accident report, total damage to all vehicles came to only The bridge was when the tug Carolyn and its tow, the barge Weeks No. 254, struck a trestle on the western side of the bridge Sept. 21, 1972. The lug and barge had been heading north on the Atlantic ocean when bad weather forced them to seek refuge in the bay. The safety board said the ac- cident occurred when the tug headed into the wind to facili- tate the transfer of fuel from its port to starboard tanks. A por- tion of the towing hawser which bad been coiled on deck washed overboard and fouled both pro pellers, causing a total loss of propulsion. The U.S. coast guard Cutter Madrona evacuated the tug crew and made several unsuc- cessful attempts to take the tug into tow. The tug and barge then drifted into the bridge and tunnel, striking the structure in several locations. The tug even- tually grounded on Chesapeake beach while the barge pounded damaged Wed Outdoors; Downtown Cleveland CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) Roland Johnson wanted to get married in downtown Cleveland, and his bride-to-be, Dannette Brandon, wanted an outdoor wedding. The compromise site: Cleve- land's Chester commons, sur- rounded by high-rise apartment buildings, motorists and pedes-' trians. "A lot of things are happening downtown, and Chester com- mons seemed appropriate for the said Johnson.
