Woman Charges Discrimination In Police Test A complaint charging the police department and the civil service commission with sex discrimination has been filed with the human rights commission by an unsuccessful applicant to the police force. The civil service commission responded by saying it will be unable to meet on the complaint until its regular July I meeting, because of work loads and previous commitments. The complaint alleges a physical examination administered to applicants is designed to keep women from becoming police officers. The complainant also says she was not told during the test of any average against which she was competing. Ralph Coty, executive secretary of the human rights commission, has disqualified himself from involvement with the case because he is an ex-officio member of the civil service commission. Four women took the test, and three failed it, according to the civil service commission. Drugs, $70 Taken In Pharmacy Breakin An undetermined amount of drugs and $70 from a cash register were taken early Thursday in a breakin at the Paramount Pharmacy, 1508 First avenue NE. The breakin was discovered when officers noticed the glass front door was kicked in. The building was not protected by an alarm system, police said. Iowa Deaths Manchester — Ralph berg, 75.

Demos To Pick Candidate for Supervisor Race The Linn county Democratic convention has been called back into session next Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Knights of Columbus hall to nominate a candidate for county supervisor. Anita Terpstra, chairman of the central committee, said Thursday Michael Blouin will be keynote speaker for the convention. Blouin won the party’s nomination in the primary election in the race for Second district congressman. The recalling of the county convention is necessary because none of the five candidates for the party’s nomination for supervisor won the 35 percent of tihe votes necessary for nomination. Mrs. Terpstra said the convention will adopt its own rules for selection of a candidate, although the rules committee will present recommendations. Supervisor William Martin, who did not seek re-election and was defeated in the primary race for county attorney nomination, said Thursday he was not, as rumored, interested in the supervisor nomination. He said the reason he did not seek the supervisor nomination in the primary was that he wants to practice law more than is possible while serving as supervisor. He said it would not be fair to the five candidates who ran in the primary. Those candidates and the number of votes they received in the primary are Stanley Ginsberg, 2,298:    Loren    Capron. 2,097; Tom Neenan. 1,757; Paul Huber, 1,061, and Larry Reading, 876 oped after the first police ar-tors< Pentagon officials now pre-j Kirshen also contends they in Linn county since 1955 and rived Patrolmen William Fer- dlct the army wdl hit or come did not pay for 19.000 bushels of have registered the name with retti and Edward Hale were close to its target of 781.600 men seed and were also negligent in the county recorder and secre- wounded at about the same time bV June 30, the end of the firEt paying bills to newspapers, Itary of state. as Nif'lrk Thnro was no ronnrt fud year since the draft law truckers and printers.    They allege that in about 1973 on their conditions.    ;dil d    'Inflated    Prices'    the Kansas company began ad- w    .    /    .    ,    , This is a marked change from    ,    vertising and distributing pizza a not hor mnn^woro in ^h^honvo ,*leir Pred*cti°ns last winter that' A^s,°* Kirshen argued in his products under the same name, I .    ,    ,    ,    .    tho army would probably fall °PenmK statement, the two sole an(j the products arc not of for a time during the shooting abou, 2Q^ me|) shor,    iSeed to farmers at inflated the same qualjly and ca,iber as but managed to leave the house. , f    compiled    show    Prices wi,h the Promise ,hat the plaintiffs'. enir    Anr    *u.nt men and women in May, 103.9    „    »»«-»• David C.
