Solons Compromise By Kandy Mlnkoff DES MOINES (UPI) - The senate ethics committee Monday agreed to a compromise proposal broadening the scope of senate lobbyist disclosure restrictions to include meals and alcoholic beverages served to legislators. The proposal, approved 5-1, was made by Francis Cudahy, a Jefferson lawyer who serves as a lay member of the committee appointed by Cov. Robert Ray. Ills proposal was adopted after Sen. Cene Glenn (IM)t-t urn wa) lost a bid to call for complete disclosure of all gifts from lobbyists to senators. senate*. However, committee members expressed concern that a full disclosure would jeopardize other amendments when the lobbyist legislation is brought before tin* full chamber for approval. Committee Chairman Sen. Roger Sh alf (R-Camanehe) said many senators may “become hostile” to other provisions sought by the committee if it supported a full disclosure provision. Son.

A rends at the Tama county courthouse Friday on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor by reason of non-support. Terry J. Cecak, Belle Plaine, pled innocent to information filed against him, and his hearing was set for Jan. 18. Representing the prosecution in each case was Assistant Tama County Attorney Don Juhl. Kirk Tesar had his case dismissed on a motion of the county attorney. Mrs. Shirley Axon, Traer, entered a plea of innocent to the non-support charge, but was able to reach an agreement in court. Juhl stated that between Nov.    I,    1968,    and Jan.    I, 1974, Mrs.    Axon’s    children,    in the care    of    her    mother,    had re ceived $11,050 in Aid to Dependent Children payments. Mrs. Axon agreed Friday to pay $7.50 weekly toward child support. Mrs. Axon’s former husband, Gerald    Rae    Schutterle, Gar rison, also appeared in court on the same charge. He pled inno still prefer full disclosure. “It’s a sham for us to excuse, in our reporting, anything which leads to influence of legislation,” he said. “As far as jeopardizing this legislation, a few years ago any mention of disclosure was met with hostility, but the senate managed to move ahead sa*d and implement some legislation concerning lobbyist expenditures.” The rules only apply to the senate. Tile house Is scheduled to consider similar lobbyist disclosure rules later this month.

Equal Rights For Men Bills Filed in Iowa DES MOINES (AP) - A group of Iowa legislators moved Monday to strike a blow for equal rights for men. The legislators filed bills in the Iowa house to create a commission on the status of men and to provide by law for the observance of Father’s day as well as Mother’s day. “I’m serious,” declared Rep. George Knoke of Council Bluffs, chief sponsor of the commission on the status of men bill. “I believe in equality.” He said it is unfair for Iowa to maintain a commission on the status of women, as it has done for years, arid not have a similar commission to light for male equality. Rep. Robert Krause of Fenton, sponsoring the Father’s day measure, said he was serious, too. He said Iowa law “authorizes and directs” the governor to issue an annual proclamation urging Iowans to fly the American flag on Mother’s day, but not on Father’s day.
